ON EIGHT BOTTLES 0. H. Mahaffy Almost Lost Hope of Getting Well. Takes Tanlac and Feels Fine Now ■'Tanlac; to my mind, is the greatest and grandest medicine in the world,” said O. H. Mahaffy, chief engineer of tire Life and Casualty building. NaBhviile. Tenn., Saturday morning of last week. "I have taken eight bottles of the medicine.” he continued, ‘and have ac tually gained forty (401 pounds in weight, and feel better and stronger than I have felt in 25 years. "My trouble started about two years ago and I have suffered ever since with the worst kind of stomach trouble and indigestion. I fell off in weight from 210 pound* to 162. 1 am now back to 202. which is almost as much as I weighed before I was taken sick. "About six months ago T was in Bow ling Green, Ky„ and while 1 was there got awful bad off. I called In the doc tor and be told me I had an ulcer of the stomach, and that if I was not careful it might turn Into cancer. He gave me some medicine and in a few days I re-] turned to my home here in Naahvllle in a very weakened condition. I told my wife what the doctor said and she was greatly worried, and, of course, I was worried, too. "I didn’t seem to get any better and was afraid to eat anything except a lit tle oatmeal and sweat milk, but in spite of everything I could do I just kept going down hill, and got weaker and weaker every day. I got so disheartened that one day I told my employer that it looked -like 1 would have to throw up my Job. I waa trying to hold on to my job, though, as long as I could, because I had a family to support, and I made up my mind that just as long as I could drag myself around I would stick it out. "This is Just the shape I was in when one day my wife told me about what she had been reading In the papers, and what the neighbors were saying about Tanlac, Mr. Cooper's new medicine, and begged me to try It. She said she had read about a man who had taken it, who described my case exactly, and he was getting lots better. This set me to thinking, but I had tried nearly all kinds of medicine, so X didn't have much hope of it doing me any good, besides my doctor had already told me I would have to be operated on in order to get relief. Something Just told me, though, that it might help me, and X decided to get It, so I went to Demovllle's and got me a bottle. "After T had taken It for a day or two I Just got so hungry I simply had to eat, and I did eat, and you can be lieve me or not, nothing seemed to hurt me a particle. My wife said to me: 'Tan lac must be helping you,’ and I said ‘I guess it is from the way I am eating.' “It wasn't “long before these awful pains In my stomach and the small of my back began,to leave me. Then, I noticed 1 began to sleep better and 1 would get up in the mornings full o< life and ready Tor work. "The medicine seemed to take hold quicker than anything I ever saw, and braced me right up. I began to take on more flesh, and as X tiave already told you, by the time I bad taken eight bot tles 1 had gained 40 pounds in weight. "If people don't believe what X say, T am right here at work every day, and they can sec me. I am telling all my friends about this medicine, and hope everybody will hear about It.” Tanlac is sold in Birmingham exclu sively by the Eugene Jacobs’ Drug com pany and Patton-Popc Drug company.

Ala.; I NEWS OF ENSLEY I At the regular meeting of the vestry of the St. John’s Episcopal church, which was held Monday night at the parish house, the following letter was unani mously adopted: “October .12, 191b. “The vestry of the St. John’s Episcopal church In an open letter to the citizens of Ensley, Fairfield,' Wylam and Pratt City. “Greetings: The vestry of the St. John’s Episcopal church at their regular meeting Monday night, October M, heard with pleasure the outline of the plan of tne rector by which he proposes to remodel and equip the old church building on Sixteenth street, between Avenues E and F, for a general hospital for Ensley. The plan was thoroughly discussed, and upon motion to that effect the vestry went upon record as heartily indorsing the plan. "The vestry also directed that we make use of this means of saying to the public that they will formally tender the use of their property to whatever organiza tion may be effected to carry out the plans of the rector and are in a posi tion to guarantee the housing of the pro posed hospital without financial remun eration indefinitely. The effort of our leadership In this movement will always be towards guaranteeing to the commun ity the general community character of the institution against any sectarian or denominational bias. Faithfully yours. "W. D. DECOTTES, “Secretary of theVestry.” The friends of M. H. McDowell of this city are urging him to announce his can didacy for city commissioner under the new five-commissioner bill. Mr. Mc Dowell stated that he had the matter under advisement, but declined to make any statement as to what step he will take. It is stated by his friends that he will probably be a candidate. i J. A. Dupuy is also being urged by his friends to enter the race. He Is consid ering the matter, but has not yet reached a decision. Little Virginia AveVyt, the six-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Averyt, while skating near her home on Avenue G and Twenty-seventh street, yesterday afternoon, fell and broke her right arm below the elbow. Yesterday afternoon about 6:10 o'clock the Ensley fire department was called to the residence of John Slaughter, near ' Sixteenth court and Twenty-third street The fire originated from unknown causes behind a trunk in the bedroom. Mr. and Mrs. Slaughter were in Birmingham at the time of the fire and only their four children were at home. It is thought by the firemen that some one had struck a match while looking for something in the trunk and threw it on the floor before putting It out. AMUSEMENTS “September Morn” The tired business man was liberally catered to at the Jefferson theatre last night when “September Morn," a bright, rollicking girl show, with plenty of tuneful music, helped to while away two hours or more quite pleasantly. The name of the piece nat urally arreets attention and creates a more or less expectant mood. The girl of the famous picture, or the famous picture of the girl—whichever you pre fer—was sufficiently exploited and there wras even a realistic pose of the hesitant maid toward the last of the show. The book is along the conventional musical comedy lines, neither very or iginal nor very funny, yet sufficient ly entertaining and helped considerably by the efforts of some talented mem bers of the cast, among them Carl George, a quaint comedian of the Ger man type, who had a fine flow of ani mal spirits and when the lines failed him made up for such deficiencies by prodigious capering. Court Vance as Teddy Van Dyke sang and danced extremely well, besides playing a Juvenile part acceptably. John Patton, as an easy-going, self contained press agent, with the usual ; sophistication of such characters, was an excellent foil to Mr. George. Jo Taylor, a singer and dancer of marked talent, played Argentina, the tango dancer, with much spirit and magne tism. Vera La Vere, a stunning blonde beauty, was quite an interesting “stage daughter," and Mabel Faffin, a strik ing brunette, afforded a pleasing con trast to her in the part of Mrs. Storm. Nearly all the principals acquitted themselves well and the cast was con siderably above the average of road shows. The dance numbers were among the most pleasing features, but the sing ing, both of chorus and principals, de serves to be commended. There is a great deal of pretty music In the piece, more or less reminiscent, it Is true, but quite pleasing to the ear. Among the song hits are "September Morn," “The Sunshade Girl," a real novelty: "Beau tiful Dreams I’m Dreaming,” "A Spare rib From the Butcher Shop of Life." and “Where Is the Pleasure in Wine end Song. If the Woman, Is Not There?" “Daddy Long-Legs” “Daddy Longlegs," the reigning hit nf last season in New York, has been booked for appearance at the Jefferson . theatre on Monday and Tuesday, next, with a Tuesday matinee. This dainty comedy from the pen of Jean Webster, a niece of the late Mark Twain, has proved the most sensational success of recent seasons both In the east and west. It was originally produced In Chicago early last summer, and ran 25 weeks to capacity business. Within the last few weeks it has ended an entire year's run at the Gaiety theatre in New York. “Potash & Perlmutter” One of the few superlative theatrical treats of the season will no doubt be keenly relished oil Friday and Saturday with matinee Saturday, at the Jefferson theatre, when "Potash and Perlmutter," the notable comedy suceess Of last sea son, will be repeated here. It proved one )f the rare offerings that made good to the letter the advance notices during the past local theatrical season, being as it Is filled with genuinely human appeal that holds the onlookers absorbed hrouRhout an admirable performance. “The Only Girl” Joe Webber will offer at the Jefferson tonight, with a matinee tomorrow, “The Dnly Girl,” the new musical comedy, which proved to be one of the hits of last season in New York city, “The Only Girl" is the joint work of Henry Blossom and Victor Herbert, the former 'urnlahlng the book and lyrics and the atter the score, while It was staged un ler the direction of Fred G. Latham—a :omblnation which has always been a luccessful one as witnessed by their ef forts in “Mile. ModlBte" and “The Red Hill."
