"It certainly is wonderful how
quickly the right medicine v. ill get a
person to feeling right again." said
Mrs. Rosa Abersfeller, 3011 South'
Ninth street, Omaha, in relating her
experience with Tanlac.
"There's no doubt about Tanlac
being the right thing for me. for I
am now feeling Just fine, but before .
I took it 1 was so weak and felt .so
bad I had to remain in bed a great
deal of the time and hire someone
to do my housework," she said. "I
was in such a badly run-down con
dition on account cf indigestion that
I was barely able to get about. 1
could not eat anything but what
caused severe pains in my stomach
and chest, and at times 1 felt so j
stuffed-up that I could scarcely
breathe. My head ached every day
and sometimes bo bad I was almost
frantic. I often had such dizzy
spells I had to catch hold of some
thing to keep from fulling, never
knew what a good night's sleep was
and that tired, worn-out feeling was
with me all the time. I felt achy all
over and was so weak i he least ex
ertion would completely exhaust me.
"But I had not finished taking my
first bottle of Tanlac before there
was a wonderful improvement in
my feelings. My appetite returned
and I was soon able to eat Just any
thing without feeling a touch of in
digestion. My strength gradually
came back and it wasn't long until
I was able to do all my housework.
I never have a headache now, dizzy
spell or a pain of any kind and
sleep soundly all night long. I have
also gained a great deal in weight,
and am like an entirely different
person. All the thanks, praise and
gratitude for the splendid health I
now enjoy belong to Tanlac."
