Eight Living and Thinking Are Most Important
Factors to Health, Declares Celebrated Author
ity, Wholesome Food, Recreation, Exercise
and Fresh Air Also Are Necessary.
The United States has produced many philoso
phers and teachers and has been electrfied by many
orators of world renown, but never in the history of
this country have teachings taken such deep root and
spread among all classes so rapidly as have the philos
ophy and theories of health and right living pro
pounded by L. T. Cooper, the noted lecturer and mil
lionaire manufacturer of Tanlac.
From an attitude of di- belief
and criticism, leaders of thought
and action have been brought to
investigate the spreading phe
nomena of the growing popular
ity of this man's philosophy, and
hundreds, of the skeptics have
followed the thousands of the
maisses of the people, who have
become not only devout believeri.

It Is not unlikely that Mr.
Cooper may decide to visit Taco
ma at an early date. He is now
at bis home in Dayton, 0., and in
the event that he should include
this city In his Western Itinerary,
It Is hoped he can be Induced to
deliver at least one lecture while
here, and give the people of. this
city the same benefits of his
study and medicine that he has
given the people of Cincinnati,
Louisville, Nashville, Memphis,
Birmingham, Atlanta and the
larger cities of the North and
Mr. Cooper Is a man of rare
talent, magnetic force and charm

surprise you with the infinite
variety of his knowledge, and Its

The following is an extract
from one of Mr. Cooper's recent
lectures on health and hygiene:
"Don't expect to get over phy
sical disease by taking my medi
cine and waiting a few days. It
takes a long continuation of
abates to stomach and other
vital organs to produce an In
valid; and even with the aid

and kept that way by food and
habits that render health possi
"Right living and right think
ing are the most important fac
tors to health. Medicine only
gives the Individual a chance.
Don't try to live on Tanlac or any
ether medicine. Wholesome food,
exercise, recreation, cheerfulness,
fresh air, sunshine and work are
the things for you to use every
day, and you will notice that I
don't pat alcohol or tobacco on
the list. Stimulants and nar
cotics are seldom necessary.
"Tlie people who make and sell
Tanlac are Interested In each and

Co-operation of Pntient Nocensary
"But we do say, bere and now,
that the faithful co-operation ot
the patient is absolutely neces-
sary. Use your head and re
strain your desires. Don't over
load your etomach just because
the medicine is beginning to do
you good, and then expect Tanlac
to keep you progressing toward
health. If you have been on
liquid diet, do not expect the
first dose of Tanlao to digest
solid food. Remember this, right
now and forever, no medicine la
the world can continue to save
you from the consequences of im
proper living. Attention to the
diet and keeping the bowels open
ip a matetr of first importance.
"Remember that Tanlac is com-
posed of the most beneficial roots
and herbs known to science. It
Is entirely vegetable and contains
no ingredients to produce violent
or sudden effects. Medicines that
bring immediate stimulation in

tion that is dangerous to the sys
"Tanlac is none the less pow
erful in its final results. It
builds, strengthens and tones tho
system as fast as nature can cor

tissues to grow. Any so-called
cure that works quicker than this
will do more harm than good.
They poison and weaken for all
time. You nun I be satisfied to
assist nature and await her slow
but Inevitable action if you would
regain your health. Trying to
force nature is disastrous."
On one occasion Mr. Cooper
was asked whether or jiut Tan
lac would relieve rheumatism,
catarrh, liver and kidney trou
bles and a dozen other ailments,
and in this connection said:
"I am convinced that the
stomach regulates the condition
of the blood and Is the fountain
head of health or disease, as the
case may be. As I have repeat
edly stated in the past, my medi
cine is intended primarily for the
regulation of the stomaah a.nd
the correction of catarrhal in
flammation, but it is no uncom
mon thing for persons who have
used the Tanlac treatment to
come to me and exjilaln that it
has relieved them of rheumatism,
kidney and liver disorders and
many ailments not generally rec
ognized as having their origin in

This Is brought home to us very
strongly in a letter received here
by Mr. and Mrs. James A. Miller

Today is a holiday in France
as well as the United States. It Is
George Washington's birthday.
People have come Into the city
from all parts of the country for
a gathering. They come In autos,
push carts, two-wheeled wagons,
bicycles, and all sorts of convey
ances. A holiday also means a big
market day for France, and to
day there is stock lined up in all
the streets, in the gutters and ev
erywhere besides a great deal of
garden truck, dry goods and trin
kets. Every Sunday is a big mar
ket day, too, but 1 never saw so
itiunli stuff gathered together in
my life as there has been here to
day. Most of the market people
are real old, some of them look
ing over a hundred years.
All of the wagons here have
two wheels and are drawn by one
horse. They also ride bicycles
that have no coaster brakes.
We are in a very old city now.
Most of the houses in France are
made of stone and cement and last
very long. Some of them here In
this town are over 100 years old.
Say, by the way, the A. E. F. is
printing a -i.-iu-r of its own over
here now. It is called tbe "Stars
and tbe Stripes." It is a mighty
good paper and we all enjoy it
very much. Everything In It is
