"Tanlac has made such a wonderful
change in my wife's condition that I

may see for themselves what a great
medicine this Tanlac is.
"Mrs. Care was told that an opera

different doctors who diagnosed her

months, before she started on Tanlac.
doctors had her on light soups and the
like. They wanted her to go. to the
hospital ahd undergo an operation.
Fearing an operation, Mrs. Care began
taking Tanlac, for she had heard a
good deal about what it was doing for
"And now she is not going to the hos
pital, for her sleep is fine; she can eat
any food she wants without it hurting
her, and has dismissed the cook, be
cause Mrs. iCare herself is able to tend
to her own cooking. Our neighbors are
as surprised as much as my wife and I, J
at the great and ranid chance Tanlac
has made in her.
