FATHER TELLS OF TERRIBLE
SUFFERING HIS DAUGH
TER ENDURED, ALL
Says She Had 200 Convulsions,
Taniac Almost Restored
Health in Two Weeks.
Just two and a half bottles of
Taniac have banished in three (s)
weeks the stomach trouble with
which Mrs. Mary Gr. Kernels, of IB
Hammett St., Anderson, S. C., suf
fered and which, dunner the pre
cceding eleven (ll) months had
caused her to have at least two hun
dred (200) convulsions, said her
father, G. W. Hale, of 18 Ham
mett St., Anderson.
Mr. Hale said he, with others,
had laid out Mrs. Kernels' body at
least two hundred (200) times du
ring the past eleven (ll) months,
each time thinking; her dead, "I
hoped she really was dead, he said,
so 6he would not have to longer
endure that awful suffering."
Mr. Haie'? statement follows,
and it is one of the most remarka
ble that has yet come to the atten
tion of the Taniac representative:
"For five years my daughter,
Mrs. Mary G. Kernels, suffered af
ter eating the most severe attacks
of indigestion. We had tried every
way to find relief for her suffering,
but without success. She had even
been under the knife at a hospital,
j During the past year we spent at
least six hundred (600) dollars for
doctors' bills for her, but Taniac
was the only medicine which gave
her relief. Taniac is the greatest
medicine on earth.
"Her suffering was so intense and
so terrible that it caused her to go
into a kind of convulsion. We had
laid her out, thinking she was dead
at least two hundred (200) times in
I the past eleven months, scores of
| times when she was laid out, I
hoped she really was dead, so she
would not have to longer endure
that awful suffering.
"But, she was relieved in just
two (2) weeks by Taniac, and now,
fifteen (15) days after abe began
taking it, she is up and goes out
visiting, though she had been con
fined to her bed six (6) weeks be
fore she began taking Tanlac.'1
Mrs. Kernels, who lives at 16
Hammett St., said: "I suffered
from chronic trouble, and steadily
became worse despite all treatment.
Last summer I was twice operated
on without gaining reiief. I was
told my case was hopeless, but I
began taking Tanlac and the very
first dose decreased the intensity of
j those awful attacks which followed
each meal. I have taken two and
a half (2 1-2) bottles of Tanlac, and
have gained the ten (lu) pounds in
weight. I am doing my house
work now, and do not suffer those
