"Tanlac Has Brought Me Health
and Happiness," Says Mrs.
"I am now seventy years of age,
but I have actually gained twenty
pounds in weight In Just a few weeks
time," declared Mrs. Mary Noble of
914 South Seventh street, West Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, a few days ago.
"During the past ten years," con
tinued Mrs. Noble, "I have suffered
all the misery that goes with stom
ac h trouble and nervousness. I. had
to be extremely careful about what
I ate for even the lightest kind of
food, such as milk toast, sometimes
made me nauseated so I was unable
to keep it down. Often I became
almost deathly sick and I could taste
my food for hours afterwards. Gas 1
would form on my stomach and press
around my heart so that it palpitat
ed terribly and I got so short of
breath I often thought I would suffo
cate. At night I was afraid to go
to bed, for when I would lie down
I felt like I was going to smother. J
My nerves were in a wretched con
dition and at night I would get to
restless I could not lie in bed and
would have to get up and walk the '
floor. As a result I began to lose
in weight and I kept falling off un
til I lost about twenty pounds and
was no moresthan a shadow of my
former self. I was almost a wreck
and the little housework I could do
was a drudgery and I became so dis
jourage'd I saw little pleasure in life.
"About two months ago I started
'aking Tanlac and it is Just wonder
ful how It began to build me up

returned and my troubles gradually
left me until today I have gained
