that a motor was available, started

"I have not only gained thirty
pounds since I commenced taking
Tanlac, but the troubles that have
been making life miserable for me
for a long time have been completely
overcome," said Mrs. Areicely Bram
lette. who lives at 915 Twenty-ninth
avenue, Seattle, Wash., the other day.
"When I commenced taking Tan
lac." continued Mrs. Bramlette. "I was
so weak, and ran down that If I
walked Just a Uule ways I would be
completely exhausted. I began to
suffer from stomach trouble about
a year ago and this trouble had grad
ually grown worse ever stnee. I
often had sejrere peina in my stom
ach, and my appetite was very poor.
I also suffered a great deal from
rheumatism in my back and arms,
and finally in my legs and feet. This
trouble was so bad at times that I
could hardly walk and the fingers of
my right hand finally got in such
bad condition that I couldn't use
them at all. I Just felt tired and
worn out all the time, and didn't have
enough strength and energy to do
any part of my housework, and 1 be
gan to think that I would never be a
well woman again. 1 was very nerv
ous and never got a good night's sleep.
"Then I heard about Tanlac and
made up my mind to give it a trial,
and it proved to be Just the medicine
I needed. Why. this mediclnee has
put me in stich fine condition in
every way and I am so well and
strong that I can do all my house
work and then go into my garden
and do two or three hours work,
and it doesn't hurt me at all. The
rheumatism has left me altogether,
and I can walk as well as I ever
could and can use my hand all right.
I have gotten back my strength, and
have regained all I lost in weight.
In fact. I am in perfect health again
and feel fine all the time, and when
nlirht comes now 1 sleep like a child.
I have a fine appetite and everything
t eat agrees with me perfectly. ian-

Plan Calls for Instruction
Schools and Colleges to
Combat Disease.
NEW ' YORK. Oct. 16.- Every wom
an In America will be offered instruc
tion in hOme sanitation by hygiene,
care of the sick and dietetics, under
plans now being formulated by the
American Red Cross, Miss Clara D.
Noyes, who succeeded Jane A. Delano
as director of the department of
nursing, announced today. These
courses now are being introduced in
the public schools and colleges, she
said, and classes are being organized
among women in various universities
to enable them to combat scientifical
ly child mortality, malnutrition and
insanitary living conditions. Thou
sands of nurwes who served' in the
war are enlisted for this work.
While statistics show that 48.000
American soldiers were killed in bat
tle during the war, she said that 300,
000 children had died in America in
that time and that most of them could
have been saved through proper
nourishing. Miss Noyes declared that
16,000 women die every year In giv
ing birth to children and that most of
them die from preventable causes.
In spite of anti-toxin, she said that
15,000 children die yearly of diph
theria and between 160,000 and 200,
000 young men and women die of
tuberculosis, "a preventable disease,"
in the same period. The Influenza
epidemic, she added, has a world
