and stop the coagh. Its antiseptic

''My name is J. B. Watson and
my home is in Mobile, Ala. I am
thirty-three years old and by pro
fession am a railroad engineer- I
have a regular ran on the work
train between Selma and Mobile.
"Up to onlv a few months ago
that ip, np to the time I started tak
ing Tanlac-my health was - broken
down completely. When I com
menced taking Tanlac I only weigh
ed one hundred and three pounds
and had not been able to work for
fifteen months. Now, after taking
only three and a half bottles of Tan
lac, I weigh one hundred and seven
ty-one pounds and have actually
gained sixty-eight pounds and never
felt better in my life.
"I suffered for several years with
the worst kind of stomach trouble
and constipation. I kept dropping
down in weight and losing strength,
and finally I broke down complete
ly. I had several attacks of what
was called annte poisoning of the
stomach and nobody khows how I
''I took treatment at the Marine
Hospital at Algiers, La., and at
Tulane Hospital, New Orleans. I
also took treatment at Hot Springs,
Ark., and at Lookout Mountain. To
tell ;, ou the truth, I tried everything
T could think: of and spent hundreds
of dollars, but I just kept going
down hill, and for fifteen whole
months I was unable to run my en
gine or to do any other kind of
"Of course, I was awfully dis
couraged about myself, as I could
see but little hope of ever beine
well agaiu. While I ?vas sick and
unable to work, a brakeman gave
me a bottle of Tanlac. I took it
and began to feel better right away.'
My stomach felt better and I got so
I could eat and enjoy my meals.
"When this was gone I bought
another bottle, and after finishing
it I felt so much better I went back
to work on a switch engine. I could
just feel myself gaining in weight
and getting stronger every day, and
after taking my second bottle I
went back to running an engine on
the main line.

"Now, what I have told you is the
truth, and hundreds of people who
know rae and know how I looked
before I took Tanlac will tell you
the same thing. Another thing,
you can see from my picture, which
I bad taken while I was sick, how
much stronger and healthier I look
now than I did then.
They can say what they please
about Tanlac and patent medicines,
but I can truthfully say that Tan
lac is the only medicine that ever
did me any good and I want every
body to know about it. If people
do not believe you. just tell them to

then look at my pictuie, which was
