HOME, hope and money gofce. A loving husband and a little daughter tearfully waiting for the dread summons which would take away wife and mother. That, In brief, describes the scene enacted one October day, a year ago, when E. O. Wilson and his little daughter sat In a darkened room await ing the end they thought-near. This chapter in the story of the Wil son family is one of sorrow and suffering, pathos and human interest. It is one which touched the hearts of friends and caused them to pour out sympathy to a sorrowing husband. Five years ago E. O. Wilson, his wife and child were a happy family. They moved to Atlanta from Abbeville. S. C., so Mr. Wilson could accept a position on a newspaper. Mr. Wilson prospered and the family moved into a little home of their own. Mrs. Wilson took an interest in church work and in the Woman’s Aux iliary of the Typographical union. Fler future looked bright. It was in the early part of 1013 that the blow fell. But let Mr. Wilson tell the story. He can do it better, be cause every detail is indelibly stamped upon his memory. Mr. Wilson’s Story. <«*/IY name is E. O. Wilson nnd I IVl live at 197 Hass street, Atlan ta, Ga., with my wife and seven-year old daughter. I have been a printer for sixteen years nnd am a member of the Typographical Union. “It is with a sense of gratitude for being permitted to have with me today my dear wife that I am voluntarily making this statement. I want every body Interested to know that it comes from the bottom of my heart. “During the spring of 1913 when I thought that nothing could impair my happiness, the blow fell. My wife, un til that time healthy and strong, was stricken with illness. She was weak and nervous and at times had dread ful smothering sensations to the point of fnintlng. She would have fearful headaches, pains In her bark and over her kidneys nnd her Joints ached all , the time. She got so bad off that she couldn’t do her housework and had to take to her bed. She didn't know what 1 it was to get a good night's sleep. “I called a doctor who treated her eight weeks and she showed no Im provement. I took the advice of an other doctor nnd my wife was operated upon twice and spent 17 weeks in two hospitals with several weeks of nursing at home between operations. “She got weaker and weaker. I was desperate. My savings were gone. I was in debt. So I sacrificed my home. "Driven frantic by my thoughts, I called In three Atlanta specialists. This was along In October, 1915. My wife was a shndow of her former self. They told me she could not possibly live more than five days. “The five days passed and, although she still lived, she grew weaker nnd weaker nnd finally I was told she would die within the next few days. She got where she was too weak to talk nnd could not eat. I looked for the end at any time. When a young man and his girl go to the movies and hold hands they are sure to like the show.

Mrs. E. O. Wilson of Atlanta, Ga., Whose Experience Amazed Friends. Had Lost All Hope. (< OU will get an idea of her des perate condition when I tell you that the members of the Woman’s Auxiliary of the Typographical union had arranged for a floral offering for my wife’s funeral. “I am now going to tell you the re markable part of my story. “I had seen an advertisement for Tanlac nnd had heard of tin- remark able results being accomplished by this new medicine, but never thought I would have need for any. One day as I sat in the swing on our little front porch I thought of this adver tisement nnd somehow or other 1 got a ray of hope. With one of the few remaining dollars I had. I bought a bottle. Doctors Are Amaita. 41 Y wife was so weak I only gave her half the nmount recom mended. In a few days I noticed a strange Improvement in her condition. I could have wept for joy. After I lmd given her one bottle of Tanlae the doc tors called one day and were surprised to find her sitting up in bed eating some toast and drinking some milk. They were amazed. “When my wife had taken two hot ties of Tanlae she was aide to sit in a rolling chair and she continued to im prove rapidly. Those were indeed happy days. I forgot my previous suf fering. I forgot that our little home was gone. I thought of nothing ex cept that my wife was alive and rap idly recovering her health and I thank God for letting me do what I did. “Today she Is a perfect picture of health. She can eat anything she wants. Such things as meat, turnips, and hard holled eggs do not bother her a par ticle and she sleeps as well as she did when a girl In her teens. She took eleven bottles of Tanlae and gained .'10 pounds. “So, this is my statement. It is true that I spent nil that I had saved try ing to restore her henlth. I don’t know until this day what actually ailed my wife, hut I do know how healthy and happy she is today and I can truthfully say that nothing on earth did this hut Tanlae.” There Is a Tanlae dealer in your town.—Adv.
