'HOT AIR WILL PUT UP A
BALLOON, BUT IT WONT
KEEP IT UP," SAYS A
TANLAC'S RECORD SUPREME.
Should Value Be Lacking, The General
Public Long Ago Would Have Lost
Faith in Tanlac.
This ia an age of advertising, and
everyone is familiar with the popu
lar saying, "lt pays to advertise."
i Advertising is a business force.
! So potent is the charm cast hy its
I spell it has been known to perform
1 marvelous feats and to accomplish
I phenominal results.
[ It cannot be truly said however,
that everyone who advertises suc
ceeds for unless full value underlays
the article advertised the advertising
would ultimately fall of its own
weight. In this connection we mus!
not forget the words of the immor
tal Lincoln who said: "You can
fool some of the people all the time,
you can fool all of the people some
of the time, but you cannot fool al!
,of the people all of the time" so
if there is not behind every adver
tisement a dollars and a cents value
to the article advertised, no amount
of advertising will stimulate the
sale on such an article beyond a
certain point. This applies to
every line of business and the mod
ern business man or firm can uni}'
succeed through honest advertising
atfd fair dealing.
One of the most successful adver
tisers in Amerca to-day is L. T. ?
Cooper, the manufacturer of the 1
new medicine, Tanlac. On one oc
casion Mr. Cooper said: "Hot air '
will put a balloon up, but it won't (
keep it there." When I offered I
Tanlac to the world something over I
a year ago, I did so with the firm 1
conviction that I was offering to the *
people the best and purest product <
of its kind on the American market <
today and I did not hesitate to ex- t
pend vast sums for advertising be
cause I knew the more the people ?
knew about it the more they would ?
buy it. i
The success of the preparation '
was immediate, and the people
everywhere were quick to recognize,
its genuine merit and wonderful
curative powers. I never. claimed
claimed Tanlac to be a "cure all"
or that it would perform unheard
of wonders but I sta*ed facts. I
stated them in a straightforward
and business-like way and in a man
ner that has commanded confi
dence in the conservative bairns set
Underlying these claims has been
real value not from a dollars an d',
cents point alone, but from health
as well. The phenomenal success
ihe preparation has now achieved is
familiar to everyone. No matter
where you go Tanlac is a household!
word. It has brought a new ro
mance to the modern business world.
It is a story of an acceptance and
appreciation of merit, never before
obtained by a proprietary medicine.
Conservative business men, to whom
the actual figures of the production
of Tanlac have been presented, have
scouted them until the proof was
The production of Tanlac now
stands at the rate of almost 5,000,
