MISS MABEL S. DE
and attractive young woman of
Lcwistoa, Maine, it now an ar
dent champion of Tanlac, fine
ho began using it a few weeks
Miss Mabel S. Deschanes, a popu
lar and attractive young woman re
siding at No. 7 Bartlett street, Lew
iston. Me., is now an ardent cham
pion of Tanlac, since she began us
ing the medicine a few week ago.
"I priie Tanlac above every
other medicine, even that which was
prescribed for me," said Miss De
schanes in relating her experience
recently. "I dislike publicity, but
there are so many others who, no
, doubt, suffer as I did, I feel that I
ought to tell them about it
"I had been a great - sufferer
from indigestion and had been un
der the doctor's care for six months
without relief. At the time I be
gan taking Tanlac I was on a very
. rigid diet and at times could not re
tain food of any kind. Even cold
water would cause extreme' nausea.
, I suffered from Joss of appetite, se
vere cramping pains after eating
and extreme nervousness.
"Finally my condition got so bad
I simply had to give up and go to
bed until I got relief. I was unable
to go down town to do my shopping
and, although- I had been under
treatment for six months, there
seemed to be no relief for me. Hon
estly, I don't believe I would be
alive now if I hadn't gotten Tan
lac, for I was suffering terribly and
getting worse all the time.
"Finally my sister persuaded me
to try Tanlac. "1 improved from the
very first and one bottle did me
mere good than the "six months'
treatment. Why, I actually gained
four pounds in weight while taking
this one bottle. I have now taken
four bottles and I feel just like a
different cerson and am eating just
anything I want; in fact, everything
seems to agree with me perfectly.
. I am now able to do my shopping
without becoming fatigued in the
least and am no longer nervous like
"Tanlac is simply wonderful, and
I cannot praise it too highly.".
Tanlac is sold in Omaha at all
