losing weight and going dow n hill
an ine nine. -v nine over a year
ago I had an attack of influenza that
left me almost a nervous wreck. I
was subject to constant sick head
aches and spells of dizziness that
made me so faint I couldn't carry on
my housework. 1 was ery nervgus
and restless and many a night 1
would get up out of l.ej and walk
the floor and in the mornings 1 fcit
completely exhausted. My nerve:;
were so unstrung that I felt I could
not stand it much longer.
"I decided to try Tanlac and with
the very first bottle 1 began to feel
better. I have taken seven bottles
now and I feel like an entirely dif
ferent woman. My appetite is ju-t
fine and lcan eat anything I want,
and nothing ever disagrees with me.
I am tree from those awful sick
headaches and fainting spells, I sleep
like a baby at night and wake tip in
the morning with more energy and
vitality than 1 ever had before in
my life, and it is now a real phas

REPORTS ABM SOME IJITEOVED
James Manners living southf of Alvo.
James Manner.-:, living south of Alvo,
who it will be remembered, was com
pelled to take the ditch to prevent a
collision, on account of a narrow cul
vert in front of his place, re-port:; hi-:
arm improving somewhat from the in
jury, which he received at the time
of the accident. Mr. Manners and
family had been at Alvo and were
returning home when meeting hi;
auto going the opposite direction,
and to avoid this car, Mr. Manners
endeavored to turn to the rig tit and
was compelled to take the side of the
road where there is a ditch or risk a
collision with the other car. The car
which contained the enUre family of
Mr. Manners being Mrs. Manners, a
daughter ten years of age. and two
boys about a year and a half old. be
ing twins, Jimmie and Robbie. They
were all pinned under the car for a
short time. Other than bruif.es. I hey
were none bf them injured severely
with the exception of Mr. Manners
whose arm was caught under the rib;;
of the top of the car and the steer
ing apparatus. He is getting along
fairly well now. but his arm is far
from being well at this time. He
feels that the narrowness of the cul
vert and the deep hole at its side
was responsible for the accident.
Financial Loss Due To Colds
It is estimated that the average
man loses three days time each year
from inability to work on account
of having a cold. Much of this loss
can be avoided by treating every cold
as soon as the first symptoms of the
disease appear. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy has won a wide reputation
and immense sale by its cures of this
disease. Try it. You are certain to
be pleased with its pleasant taste and
the prompt relief which it affords.

fully recovered, which should not he
long if you take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. Three days in bed now is
better than three weeks later on.
