THE LID IS OFF !
The WAR INDUSTRIES BOARD has removed all building restrictions on both country and city buildings.
HISTORY RECORDS THAT ALL WARS HAVE BEEN FOLLOWED BY PERIODS OF INTENSE RECONSTRUCTION. That the
present surpasses all others in magnitude and destructiveness, only means that its sequel of reconstruction will also surpass all others in
magnitude. GET READY NOW FOR THE BIG BOOM IN BUILDING.
All of-the towns in this state need new residences, new business houses, and a vast amount of repair work. FARMS need houses,
barns, sheds and repairs. WE ARE READY TO DO OUR PART! HOW ABOUT YOU?

you back in school again, for your

Says It's Best Reconstructive Tonic To
Be Had For Building Up Influ
The following letter from Dr. J, W.
Sandlin one of the most prominent
physicians of Southern Texas, was re
cently received at the Tanlac office
and gives indisputable evidence as to
the value of Tanlac as a reconstruc
live tonic for persons who are recu
perating from the after effects of
Spanish Influenza. His letter follows:
Nov. 5, 1918,,
Dear Sir—Just a few lines in re
ference to Tanlac. 1 have found your
preparation to be a wonderful recon
structive tonic, and in my opinion it
has no equal in its line. 1 have found
it to be the best tonic to be had to
build up mÿ patients who have had
Spanish Influenza. I have treated
within the past month about fourteen
hundred cases, and have never been
able to get sufficient Tanlac to sup
ply our people.
"Yours very truly,
(Signed) Dr. J. W. Sandlin."
Dr. Sandlin not only enjoys a very
large practice as a physician, but he
is also a man of wide influence and
ranks as a leading citizen of the en
terprising little city of Humble, Tex
As a practicing physician of sixteen
Dr. Sandlin was
quick to recognize the superior tonic
properties of Tanlac over other reme
