Southern Makes Splendid
Washington, D. C., July 16.
Fairfax Harrison, President, South

"During' the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1910, Southern Railway
Company carried nearly seventeen
million passengers, among whom
the^e were four fatal injuries; two
in a rear end collision at Salisbury,
N. C., on November 24, 1915, due
to a human failure, the disgrace of
which the management feels keen
ly; one at Jamestown, N. C., on
March 19, 1916, when a truck failed
under a freight car passing a pas
senger train; and one at Citico,
Tenn., on May S, 1916, when a pas
senger, in violation of the rules
made for his safety, was leaning ont
from the steps of a passenger car
and was struck by the truss of a
"It may be reported also that,
despite the greatly increased volume
of business done this past year as
compared with the previous year,
there was a decrease of fifteen fatal
injuries to employees. While this
record is far from perfection, the
management is encouraged to be
lieve that its earnest and organized
effort to promote the safety of rail-1
way travel and to reduce the risk j
of casualty in railroad employment1
is showing results."

Afraid to Leave
OFTEN HAD TO REFUSE
BETTER PAYING POSI
Helped by Tanlac.
"It would be a hard matter to
estimate the good Tanlac has done
me," said W. Day Barrett, 2613
Burroughs Street, one of the best
known men in Savannah. Mr. Bar
rett has been a city salesman in the
grocery line for sixteen years, and
his enthusiasm over Tanlac is no
surprise to the many friends who
knew of his previous condition of
health and now realize what it has
done for him.
"I've been a little better than a
nervous wreck for three years," he
contiuued, and have been treated by
no less than fifteen doctors right
here in Savannah. I was forced to
turn down better paying jobs, trav
eling, because I was afraid to get
away from home in this condition,
and at times I was actually afraid to
go out on the street I was so weak
"I suffered with headaches and
neuralgia and my stomach was in
bad condition all the time and it
seemed like I couldn't get anything
that would set mein order or enable
me to digest my food. I couldn't
eat anything that wouldn't sour on
my stomach and give me pain or|
make me miserable. I was thin and
bad very little strength. In fact,
the least little exertion would ex
haust me and I was hardly equal to
anything. I would have pains in
my back and joints continually, and
would be so nervous and exhausted
at night I couldn't sleep at all. I j
would often have to take stimu
lants to enable me to keep on go
"One of the doctors who treated
me suggested that I try Tanlac and
see what it would do in my case,4
and besides that a close personal
friend begged me to take it. So I
started in on it about a month ago,
and I couldn't tell you in a week
how glad I am that I got it, for it's
the very thing. I haven't taken but
two bottles yet,( but I've actually
gained several pounds in weight and
it's simply picking me up and get
ting me over every one of my
troubles just as fast as it can. As.I
said before, there is no estimating
the good it has done me. It is a
great medicine beyond all doubt
and I am goiug to keep on taking
it until there is no chance of these
troubles coming back on me."
Tanlac, the master medicine, is
sold exclusively br Penn & Hol
stein, Edgefield; Johnston Drug
Co., Johnston; G. W. Wise, Tren
