"I never expected to be the
strong, weir man I am today and
my neighbors think my recovery is
the most astonishing thing that has
ever happened in this part of the
country," said Hiram Robinson, a
well known farmer, R. F. D. 3,
Randolph, Illinois, in relating his
remarkable experience, with Tanlac
while in Shorthose drug store at
"I used to think no medicine
could help me" he continued, "but
I've got to hand it to Tanlac, as it
has not only relieved me entirely of
all my suffering, but has added
nearly forty pounds to my weight
besides. For eleven years I was
hardly able to be up, much less
work, and when I ventured to eat
anything except broth and the very
lightest of food I would put in a day
of the worst misery imaginable. If
I ate a piece of pie or cake or a
little .fruit gas would form on my
stomach and bring on such awful
cramping pains that I could hardly
stand itv This gas would press on

only an absolute wreck physically,
but my nerves were in such a shape
that I couldn't lie still at night, and
during the day I was just like a fish

stipated and had such a hurting in
my head just back of my eyes that
I couldn't read at all. I was so
nervous, weak and dizzy that I was
actually afraid to drive a team to

Unitt, "there will be no difficulty in

they yield investors only from 4.30
