IS LARSEN HAS
Says The Way Tanlac Helped
Her Is Mil Short Of
According to the testimcny of 'mul
tiplied thousands who hiive tried it
there is nothing so well adapted to tho
nee Is of aj-un down system as Tanlac,
and in eve'iy case wh a lair test of
its powers is made tnothrr enthusiastic
witness is the invariable result. Recent
ly in telling of the re.'i'c; kable bene
fits she has derived from the medicine
Mrs. Agnes Larsen, residing at 1948
South G street, Trfcoua, Washington,
' Uhu way Tanla. has relieved me of
my suffering and buiit mi, up is noth
ing short of wonderful. Why, I don't
only feel liko a new woman, but I
have actually gained fourteen pounds
in weight besides. I was in an awful
ly weak, run down condUiiu lor two
jears and so rervous that the least
.Mlo thiug out of tiie rruinu-ry would
upset me. I suffoi.-J nil the time wii.1:
a pain across my liiiJncys, v.hich was
.'o bad at times my back ,'olt like it
would break. 1 w.n v. -j lestless at
night, up and down at all hours, un
able to sleep. I also suffered a great,
doal with dizziness and faiut feelings,
aud wag so weak that I could not get
through with my housework without
stopping several timps to rest.
"One day I was telling a friend of
mine how I felt, and she advised me
to" try Tanlac. So I got a bottle, and
that was ono of the best things I ever
did. My husband, who was suffering
a great deal with indigestion and- gas
on 'his stomach, commenced taking it
the same time I did, and between us
we took eight bottles, and ore in splen
did condition. His stomach is in such
a good condition that he ea'.s just any
thing and it all agrees with him fine.
And as for me, it has built me up un
til T feel altogether different. My
nerves are so much stronger and bet
ter that I can sleep all night long, and
my appetite is just fine. I no longer
have those weak, dizzy spells and the
pain has left my back entirely. Both
myself and husband think Tanlne is
great, and if I ever feel my system
getting rundown again I shall take
more Tanlac because I know so well
what it will do."
