Lincoln Woman Now Enjoys
Good Health First Time
Since She Was a
"I wouldn't attempt to tell you
how many different kinds of medi
cine I have taken in the last thirty
years, but I can say very positively
that Tanlae is the only one of them
that has ever done me any good,"
said Mrs. Kate Hallom, who lives at
1000 L street, Lincoln, a few days
"For thirty years," she continued,
"my stomach was in very bad con
dition, and I had to be very careful
of what I ate. Even a cup of coffee
would cause gas to form and I would
have awful, cramping pains in the
pit of my stomach. My nerves were
all upset most of the time and I
never got a real good night's sleep,
t had also suffered from inflamma
tory rheumatism ever since I was a
shiic, and many times I was laid up
!n bed for three and four months at
a time. I believe it was the most
stubborn case of rheumatism I ever
heard of, for it simply would sot
yield to treatment and seemed to
grow worse as I grew older.
"When I saw Tanlac so highly
recommended in the papers I won
dered if it was like all the rest, and
finally made up my mind to try it
and see for myself. By the time I
had finished my first bottle I felt so
much better that I just somehow
knew that Tanlac was going to re
lieve me of all those long years of
suffering. My appetite came back
and I can now eat big, hearty meals
of solid food, and instead of dread
ing to see meal time come, I just
long for it to come now. The best
part of it is, I can eat just anything
want and it doesn't hurt me at all,
and I am getting stronger every day
and gaining in weight all the time.
I am glad to tell you also, that I can
say something today that I have not
been able- to say since I was a little
girl, and that is, I am entirely free
from rheumatism. Tanlac is surely
the greatest blessing that ever came
to me, and I freely and gladly rec
tmmend it to everybody."

The children are: Claire, 3 years
old; Robert, 19 months; Grace, 8
months- The Millers were married
in Council Bluffs. October 20, 1914,
and during part of their married
life lived at 5004 North Twenty
Husband and wife were bitter in
their denunciation of each other,
and each denied most of the charges
uttered by the other on the wit
A sample of the husband's testi
mony follows: "If she-smellcd beer
on my breath she concluded that I
was drunk and then she would bring
up old matters and tell me what a
wonder she was and what a rummy
I was. She was disappointed in
finding out that I did not have much
money after we were married. I
married her because I loved her and
wanted a home. Four weeks after
our marriage she said she wanted an
automobile. I suppose she thought
that I was a millionaire. I was
only managing my mother's pictur
Threw Quart of Milk.
"One morning, as I was leaving
the house for work, she threw a
quart of milk at me, and if the milk
had not struck the door, I would
not be here today. I have been
economical. The suit I am now
wearing was bought in 1916. She
kicked me twice one day in the
presence of a policeman and the
policeman told me that he would
not let his wife kick him like that.
She kicked me on another occasion
and I went down in a heap, and I
though I was put out. She had no
provocation to kick me, particularly
where she did. I never slapped or
struck her, but I have held her
hands to prevent her slapping me.
On one occasion she slapped me
12 times and at first I thought she
was joking, but when I looked at
her I saw that she was serious.
"I did not promise her when I
married her that I would quit drink
ing, but that I would not get drunk.
I did quit drinking, and then mat
ters grew worse, and she would
make some new demonds. She al
ways wanted her own way. When
she had company to dinner she
would serve chicken and when I
got home, I would get a wing.
Wife Tells Story.
Mrs. Miller told a different story
when she testified:
'I stood my mother-in-law s
abuse for three years and then I re
taliated when she called me shanty
Irish. I was tired of being under
obligations to my husband's peo
ple. The dress I am wearing was
given to me by my mother-in-law.
These shoes I have had for five
years. My mother-in-law is not
washing my dishes now, nor is she
cooking my meals, and I have been
much happier since I left her house,
at 2304 Davenport street. She was
the mistress in her house and 1 had
no privileges at all.
"Yes, I did throw a milk bottl
at Ben one morning when he pulled
all the dishes oft the breakfast table
and then he told me that when I
went to the hospital he hoped that I
and the baby would die. White I
was at the hospital and expecting to
return home in four days, he told
me that he had ordered the gas,
water and electric light all turned
off in our home."
The wife filed a petition for, di
vorce, alleging that one of the dis
turbing factors of her home was
her husband's insistence that she
should live with his mother. The
husband filed a cross-petition in
which he charged that Mrs. Miller
swore, at him and struck him.
"Did Mr. Miller drink when you
married him?" asked attorney for
"Yes," the wife replied.
"And you knew it?"
"And yet you married him?"
''I did on his promise that he
"How soon after your marriage
did he come home drunk?"
"On the second or third day."
Mrs. Miller related that on an oc
casion when her husband threatened
to take their boy. Claire, to his
mother's home, she took the child
into a bath room and that Miller
gave her "10" to open the door, or
he would break it open.
"I was going to drop the baby
out of the bath room window, but
it was too far to the ground, so I
called to neighbors, who came and
took us both out of the room
through the window," the wife testified.
