Forced to Give Up Many Places
Because of Rheumatism, but
Is Well and Strong Since

but since taking Tanlac I never have
an ache or pain in my body and am
working hard every day, said E. J.
Burnett, 4914 Forty-fifth avenue

"For ten years now rheumatism
and stomach trouble have been pull
ing me down and I had gotten to
where I didn't expect to ever see
another well day. My neck pained me
so bad that sometimes I couldn't turn
my head without moving my whole
body. I couldn't even touch my neck
It hurt so at times, and I had severe
pains all through my shoulders. The
muscles in my legs hurt me so bad I
was often unable to walk a step, and
I have had to give up eeveral good
Jobs just on this account. I would
work maybe a few weeks and then
the rheumatism would get worse and
I would have to quit and sometimes
take to my bed. Often I couldn't get
up or down and was in such pain I
couldn't even turn over in bed. I
also lost my appetite and my stomach
got so badly out of order that the
little I did force down disagreed with
me. Nothing did me any good other
than a little temporary relief.
"One day a railroad man from
Lewiston, Idaho, advised me to try
Tanlac and. I have thanked that man
many a time since for putting me on
to Buch a fine medicine. Why it
went straight after my troubles and
I could just almost feel the rheuma
tism leaving me. And now I don't
believe there is a trace of it left in
my body for I never feel a sign of it
and I am as strong and active as I
ever was. Eat, why, I can hardly get
enough to eat and everything agrees
with me perfectly. I am sleeping fine

ever. I can certainly recommend
