Praises Remedy Because of Great
Benefit It Gave Him
WOULD HELP OTHERS
Says He Soon Gained Twenty Pounds
in Weight by Taking Great
One of the latest additions to the
long list of prominent men who have
endorsed Taniac is the name of Judge
B. F. Whittington, judge of the Bol
ston court, of South Omaha, Neb. In
relating to his experience with the
medicine, Judge Whittington said:
"The results I have obtained from
Tanlac seem wonderful to me. Before
I began taking Tanlac my health was
broken down in many ways. My liver
was all out of fix. I was habitually
constipated and bilious. I was so
frightfully dizzy most of the time that
I would not stoop over for fear of
falling, and my kidneys were out of
order. I had fearful pains in the
small of my back, I could eat, but
my food did me no good. Sleep failed
to rest me and I felt tired and worn
out all the time. I had been in this
condition for a year and was becom
ing badly worried,- as nothing seemed
to help me.
"I had fallen off twenty pounds in
weight as a result of my trouble, but
I have gained it all back by using
Tanlac, and I have never felt better
in my life. I felt like a new man
beforel had finished the first bottle.
I have taken five bottles and I do
not have an ache nor a pain now and
I am feeling great. I eat like a farm
hand,. sleep like a log and get up in
the morning feeling fine. I gladly
give this statement for what it may
be worth to others who are trying
to find relief."

Though earth was draped in night.
All over the field the wounded lay
Sighing for loved ones far away,
Private and leader side by side
In darkness lay-in darknessdied.
Just that morning bright and early
One could see the plains ablaze,
But soon the color of the heather
Was dimmed o'er by the haze;
And the battle smoke enwrapped all
Like some mournful funeral pall.
While strong men fought faithful and
For our flag of red, white and blue.
And lo, ere from the western sky
The quivering sun sinks in rest;
Behold the dying-a ghastly sight
Breaks on the path of light.
And yet resounds abrupt and loud
The cannon roar-a cloud
Of smoke. Then once again the pow
And leaves behind a world of pain.
In a little thicket of trees
That swayed and whispered in the
The soldiers lay. Over their young
Sweet thoughts of home and loved
Around them, in thought, came those
they loved best
From that dear home of love and rest.
Was they to die thus-alone and cold?
In anguish wrapped in death's drear
The murmuring branches above their
A soft breathing wind from out of the
Were the only watchers of the dead.
Suddenly the rustling breeze rifted
the branches asunder,
And on the tranquil sky afar
In celestial glory shining the dying
men behold a star;
Adorned was it in a crown of silver
Floating softly through the misty
The soft sweet radiance from that
Falls sweetly on that battlefield,
Shines like some sacred shrine across
the- way afar
Soothes many a brow bids aching
wounds be healed;
Drops many a gift of healing balm,
Bids many a heart to rest in calm,
Causes many a groan to be refrained
Tells many a soul that God still

The first rays of down shone through
The aching wounds, the trouble hearts

Gay colored poppies bloom and blow
Bright as their blossoms our memory
