Interesting Letter From Mr.
This is no advertisement but a
short story of a great industry.
You who have partaken of the
"57" think not of the home and
magnitude and immaculate cleanli-j
ness of this plant while doing so.
The H. J. Heinz Company had
its modest beginning five miles up
the Allegheny river from Pittsburg
in 1SG??. Its garden plat consisted
of less than one acre of ground and
its factory was in a three room
house nearby. To day it owns or
operates 30.00U acres of farms and
orchards in different sections of the
country. And now the main plant
embraces a hundred and sixty city
The loaded car movement amounts
to upwards of 15,000 cars per annum.
The H. J. Heinz Company wel
comes an average of 50,OOO visitors
a year. As you enter the Adminis
tration Building you are reminded
more of a branch of the Carnegie
Museum than of a Pickle Industry.
The Greek Pilasters ard Doric cap
itals, the staine'd glass windows and
mural decorations, the palms and
Oriental rugs give the visitor an
unexpected but pleasant impression.
You pass from the Administration
Building to the power plant, steam,
electric D. C. Generators supply
the current for lights and machinery.
Leaving the power plant you arrive
at the Bottling Department. Here
hundreJs of girls in blue and white
uniform gowns are busily engaged
tilling up ''the 57." The zigzag ef
fect in the pickle bottle you pur
chase in the store is obtained by
placing one pickle in at a time, but
it is a wonder to watch how quickly
these girls perform the task.
The guide leads you to the nevt
department, the Preserving Depart
ment. Scores of girls are busy with
the huge silver lined copper kettles
steaming with luscious fruits of va
rious varieties. Here the olfactory
nerve inhales the most tantalizing
odors that ever assailed the uostrils
of unappeasable youth. (The word
"odors" refers to the kettle.) From
one department to the other you
proceed impressed with the cleanli
ness of the plant and the willing
ness of the worker. 75 per cent of
the working force are girls.
The H. J. Heinz Company make
their own tins which number about
thirty-five million a year. A force
of girls operate the machinery with
surprising skill. They wear dresses
similar to the other girls in the
plant-unlike the "bloomer girls"
in several of the other industrie?.
The Company provides a large din
insr-room for the girls where some
GOO may he seated at one time.
They brink' their own lunches but
are provided with coffee at a cost
of a cent a cn p.
Amusements are provided for the
employees in the way of an audito
rium, where lectures and musical
entertainments are held, a roof gar
den, a natatorium and a library.
Heinz always treats his visitors to a
little luncheon just before leaving
the plant. In crise of a party of
visitors, your picture is taken on
the Administration Building steps
when you first enter the plant-and
what is more-flashed o?i the movie
screen before you while at luncheon.
In the group you recognize yourself
perhaps for the first time as a player
in the movie world.

Declares He Found Tanlac Fine
Medicine, and Says He
Gladly Recommends lt.
Regarding the great relief Tanlac
gave him from stomach trouble,
which after five years developed
into pellagra, F. S. Crumley of No.
8 Buncombe St., Greenville, gave
the following statement:
"I suffered from stomach trouble
about five years and it ran into pel
lagra. I spent several weeks at a
Government pellagra hospital at
Spartanburg, but after I came home
what I ate continued to hurt me.
Gas formed on my stomach and I
had pains in my abdomen. My ap
petite was not srood, and I could not

"I began to take Tanlac, and it
soon corrected my stomach* trouble.
In a couple of days I could tell a
big difference. My food was di
gested, gas stopped forming on my
stomach and those pains left me.
The Tanlac soon got me so I could
eat as much as any one, my nerves
were quieted and I began to sleep
soundly at night.
"Tanlac is a fine medicine for
stomach trouble, and I ara glad to
recommend it to all with such ail
