it was useless to her. Her stomach,
too, was all out of order, she
had no appetite, and although
she was just as careful as she
could be about her dieting, her
food would sour on her stomach and
cause her great distress afterwards
Her nervous system seemed to bo
shattered, and her rest was so broken
at night that she could hardly sleeps
Her arms and throat appeared to be
withered, the skin soft and flabby
and she was just about as miserable
as anybody ever gets to be. For years
she had been too weak and ailing;
to do any of her housework, and what
time she wasn't in bed she was barely,
able to get around.
"I consulted specialists about he(j
case but they could give me no hope,1
and I took her to one of the most;
celebrated health resorts in thej
country, hoping she would be benei
fited tfarough drinking the water, butjj
it seemed to do her no good. Then!
she tried all kinds of medicine, but
not till she started taking Tanlac did,!
she find any relief whatever. AfV
ter taking a few bottles of this won
derful medicine we are prepared toj
say that Tanlac is the only thing wa
hstve any faith in. Her last attack
of rheumatism was all of two months
ago, and she hasn't had a twinga
since. Her twisted foot is getting?
back into its normal position, and
that, bent finger is getting straight
and supple like the others. Her stom
ach is in such splendid condition that
she can eat anything she wants with
out suffering any bad effects after,
wards. Her arms and neck are fill
ing out, and are plumD and firm, and
she sleeps like a child every night.
She is now able to do her housework,
and she is in better condition than
she has been in many years."
