TROUBLES OF 14 YEARS STANDING DISAPPEAR AFTER HE TAKES TANLAC. “Although I have taken only three bot tles of Tanlac I am convinced it is a real medicine because of the remarkable change that has come over me,” said Patrick Ryan, who lives .at 50 Huchins St., West Concord, N. H. Mr. Ryan has been a life-long resident of Concord and is one of the best-known and most high ly respected citizens. “The past fourteen years has meant nothing but trouble for me, for I have suffered something awful from indiges tion, rheumatism, nervousness and sleep lessness,” Mr. Ryan continued. “I had no appetite to speak of and the little 1 forced down would cause terrible pains in my side that were so bad as to almost draw me double. Gas would bloat me up and press up into my chest until I could hardly breathe. I had rheumatism so bad in my legs that if I walked only a short distance the pains would become so severe I could hardly stand them. My nerves were in a wretched condition and 1 could never sleep good as I would roll ai.d toss and wake up several times during the night. When I got up in the morning I felt like I had hardly been to bed and from then on till night I was no good and | could hardly get about. ‘I saw in the papers where Tanlac was doing so much good all over the country that I decided to give it a trial. So far I have only taken three bottles but I am feeling fine—better than I have in years. My appetite has come back and 1 am eat ing three square meals every day and everything agrees with me perfectly and my breathing is normal and free. My nerves are steady and I sleep sound every night. The rheumat'sm has just about all disappeared and l am getting around with new life and strength. Yes, sir, you can put me down for Tanlac after it has helped me like it has.” Tanlac is sold in Belfast by Read & Hills; in Prospect by L. C. Dow & Co., in Brooks by Albert R.

They are situated in poor agricultural sections, have no natural advantages, no near-by water power, no navigable water. They have both grown because they have numbered among their citizens able men who had the vision TO IN VEST AT HOME. Suppose these men had invested their money in Penn sylvania or some away-from-home section. Probably they would have had their dividends always—BUT PENNSYL VANIA CITIES WOULD HAVE GROWN at the expenses of their own city, and Pennsylvanians would have profited by the use of their investment money. The investors of Maine face the situation that those two great and growing cities faced. They can ship their in vestment money, as Maine has done so often in the past, to remote sections. They will get dividends of course- the re mote States will get the growth and the prosperity. Or Maine investors can invest right here at home—at possibly a slightly lower rate—and build up their own State— their own town. We are proud of the way Maine investors are meeting the situation.
