Colorado Man Says He Suffered 25
HAS GAINED 10 POUNDS
Lopez Tells of a Value Tanlac Proved,
Hoping to Help Others.
"Tanlac certainly helped me, and I
hope my experience with it will en
courage others to try it," said Antonio
Lopez, who lives at Delta, Colorado.
"I was a sick man for 25 years,"
continued Mr. Lopez. "My stomach
was in such a bad condition that for
the last five years I was not able to
eat any supper at all, and any kind of
fruit or vegetables would cramp me,
-o I never would touch any of them.
I was simply miserable most of the
time from the gas on my stomach. I
lost considerable weight, and at the
time I started taking Tanlac I
weighed only one hundred and thirty
"The few bottles of Tanlac I have
taken built me up wonderfully and I
actually gained 10 pounds on my first
three bottles. My stomach is in such
fine condition that I can eat anything
now, including fruits and vegetables,
without suffering the slightest pain
or trouble from gas. And I can eat a
hearty supper now and enjoy every

be advisable to cement around the bot-,
tom of the silo where the foundation
joins the superstructure. In the case
of old silos it will be profitable for
the farmer to go over them carefully
to look for cracks and wherever he
finds them to seal with tar and oakum I
wood filler, or other effective material.
If the bottom of the silo has decayed
slightly, the owner may saw off what
ever amount is necessary, and then, by
the use of blocking, gradually lower
the silo to the foundation again,
cementing around the base as pre
When the silo is air-tight and able
to. stand the most rigid inspection, the
owner may consider the actual work
of filling. A wise -precaution is to
place several feet of straw in the bot
tom of the silo to act as a protective
blanket between the bottom of the silo
and the feed, as ordinarily silage
juices collect there unless proper fac
ilities for drainage are provided and
the straw acts as a valuable absor
bent for this excess of moisture which
otherwise might damage the bottom
Must Tramp it Down Well
In the actual operation of filling the
silo it is of paramount importance
that no air pockets be left; this is
prevented by sufficient tramping. It
depends largely on the diameter of
the silo how many men should be
used to tramp the ensilage, but even
in silos as small as 12 feet diameter,
if sufficient help is available, at least
three men should be used with an in
crease in the force as the size of the
.The proper sealing of the silo also
is important, because where the silo
is correctly topped off there usually is
a minimum loss of the succlent feed.
A good plan is to snap the ears from
the last three or four loads of corn
which are run into the silo. Straw
or coarse hay may also be usedl as a
topping. Then oats should be sown
over the top of the contents after it
has been thoroughly moistened, if
necessary, although as a rule the corn
if cut at the proper stage, is moist
enough without extra wvatering. The
oats sprout andl form a dense blanket
which prevents the ensilage from
