Like a Happy Dream Come
True Relief from Her
Long Illness Charms.
To suffer almost from childhood with
stomach trouble and nervousness and
ithen to find relief almost over night, is
like having a happy dream come true.
But this Is the delightful experience of
Mrs. Ivah Spann. of 1913 P street, Lin

nervous iprostratlon, that dread malady
that Is woman's bugbear, she tells.

dyspepsia." declared Mrs. Spann yester
day. This statement is the highest en
dorsement that can be given to a medi
cine. Dyspepsia usually is a baffling ail
ment. The dyspeptic la a sufferer Indeed.
Ixjss of strength, extreme nervousness
and often fear of trivialities quickly
seize the dyspeptic.
"I had nervous dyspepsia and was
threatened with nervous prostration,"
said Mrs. Spann. "Ever since girlhood I
have been so nervous that I could not
sleep well. Indigestion, which finally be
came dyspepsia, caused gas almost con
stantly. For days at a time I V'ould suf
fer from pains In my stomach, head and
"Of course I had sought relief con
tinuously and I did not have great faith
i In Tanlac when I started to take it. But
jl have now. My relief began with' the
I first bottle. Now, after taking the treat-
ment, I w ant to recommend Tanlac for
