She had taken Rtpans Tabules for a stomach trouble and was surprised to note that a Tabule, taken at the time of an approaching paroxysm with the gall stones, lessened the pain. As time went on, and she learned to apply them in season, she found most surprising relief, and her husband lately said: "If it had not been for Ripans Tabules I do not believe she would be alive to-day." He is very careful, indeed, to see to it that the supply of Tabules is ever allowed to run low. When this testimonial was shown to the lady, It having been taken down front her reported sayings, she said the only suggestion she could mate regarding it was that it did not give the severity of her case in strong enough terms nor sufficiently express the almost immediate relief she derived from the use of the Tabules. Her husband said lie had always been haunted with the fear that for some reason the manofacture of the Tabules might be suspended, because he feels confident he shall never be able to 6nd anything that will take their place.
