L & N. CONDUCTOR
GAINS 18 POUNDS
Capl. Parker . Says Stomach
About Played Out-Now
Eats Cabbage and
Pork Like a Sec
"I have got to hand it to that
Tanluc, for there is no doubt a
bout it beintf the finest thing ever
sold in a drug store for the peo
ple that have any sort of stomach
trouble or indigestion," said
Capt. Eugene Farker, a popular
Louisville and Nashville conduc
tor, running between Birming;
' ham and Montgomery, and who
lives at 417 Sixth avenue. Ingle-
"Why, the way it has straight
ened me out in just a short time, '
he continued, "is a mystery and
it has done for me what nothing
else I ever tried would do. I had
mighty near got to where I didn't
, need to go to the table any more
so far as eating was concerned,
for I couldn't eat anything after
I got there. If I did, I had to
pay dear for it in a little while,
for my stomach had about played
"There was a continual sore
ness in my stomach and I thought
sometimes it must be an absess.
My liver never was right and
there was not a day but what I
had to get something from the
drug store for headache and to
settle my stomach. I never had
much life in me and had fallen
off a great deal. I was in a bad
ly run down shape generally and
hardly fit to do my work.
'About three weeks ago
friend of mine asked me why I
didn't try this Tanlac, as he had
used it and found it to be the
yery thing he needed, so I took
him up on his suggestion and I
stopped at the Anderson Drug
company in Inglenook and
bought two bottles of it, but 1
"must say 1 never looked for it to
do me any good, as so many
things had been , reccommended
to me and I tried them all with
out any benefit
"Well, I am afraid some peo
ple won't believe it, but it is a
fact and I can prove it. After I
had used those two bottles I
weighed and found I had actually
gained 18 pounds. It just
straightened my stomach out in
no time and since I took the first
dose I have not had to take any
thing for a headache.
"I have the finest kind of an
appetite now and can eat any
thing. The other day out on the
road our supplies had run low
and I had some salt pork and
cabbage cooked up an the caboose
and I ate it like a farm hand and
enjoyed every mouthful of it.
That's 'going some' for a man
who had stomach trouble, but it
did not hurt me one bit.
"I notice I slp a great deal
better now and am just about
100 per cent in better shape
evory way. I really believe Tan
lac ia the lest remedy in the
world and ihere are a lot of oth
er people out my way who think
the ame thing."

WASTE NO FOOD
FOOD WASTE OF ABOUT
"For partial immediate relief, every individual and community
should consider earnestly the matter of food conservation and th
limitation of waste. As a nation w eeem to hare a disdain of econ
omizing. In many homes there 1 a strong feeling that it is 'only
decent' to provide more food than will bo oaten tnd that it Is do
meaning to reckon closely. The experts of th Department of Ag
riculture report to me that the dietary studies made by them point
to an annual food waste of about T00,000,O0O. Of course, the
waste in families of very limited mean Is aright, but in th fami
lies of moderate and ample mean th wast is considerable. Even
if the estimate were reduced by half, th wast would still bo enor
mous. "The food wast in th household, the expert assert, result la
large measure from bad preparation and bad cooking, from la
proper care and handling, arfd, ha well-to-do families, from serving
an undue number of courses and aa over-abundant supply and fall
ing to save and utilize the food not consumed. Aa an instance of
improper handling, U is discovered that in the preparation of po
tatoes 20 per cent of the edible portion in many ease is discard
ed." Secretary of Agriculture, March t, 1117.
FOOD IS WASTED:
