' | ■„ A day nlfer passes but what thousands of people ask the questions: What is Tanlac? Why its phenomenal success? Why do we hear so much about it? and Why has this preparation so far out stripped all other medicines of its kind? i The answer to these questions is easy and can be explained in just one word-merit- Tanlac is scientifically compounded and ' represents years of work, study, experimentation and research by : some of th foremost chemists and pharmacologists of America. “X The Tanlac formula is purely ethical and complies with all Nation- . al and State pure food laws. -•It is purely vegetable and is made from the most beneficial roots, herbs and barks known to Materia Medica. The Tanlac Laboratories are among the, largest and most modernly equipped ! in this country. Ten Ingredients in Tanlac. Altogether, there are ten ingredi ents in Tanlac, each of which is of recognised therapeutic value. In referring to one of the more im- j portant ingredients of Tanlac- the | Encyclopedia Brittania says: “It has been the source of the most valuable tonic medicines that have ever been discovered.'’ In referring to other of the general tonic drugs contained in Tanlac, the | 13th Edition of Potter’s Therapeutics, a standard medical text-book, states that “they impart general tone and strength to the entire system, includ ing all organs and tissues.” This same well-known authority in describing the physiological action of still another of the ingredients of Tan lac, which is of value in tVeating what is commonly known as a “run-down condition,” uses the following expres sion: “It is highly esteemed in loss of ap petite during convalescence from acute diseases.” There are certain other elements in Tanlac which, because of their influ i I 2iice upon the appetite- digestion, as- : similation and elimination, improve j the nutrition and vital activity of all ! Ibe tissues and organs of the body and j produce that state of general tonicity i which is called health. The United States Dispensatory makes the following comment regard ing another ingredient: It may be used in all cases of pure debility of the digestive organs or where a general tonic impression is required.” There are certain other ingredients described in the Dispensatory, and in other standard medical text-books, as having a beneficial action upon the or gans of secretion, whose proper func tioning results in a purification of the ; Mood streams passing through them. In this manner, objectionable and poi sonous ingredients of the blood are removed and the entire system invig orated and vitalized. Tonic and Body Builder. Tanlac was designed primarily for i the correction of disorders of the j stomach, liver and bowels. At the j same time, however- it is a powerful! reconstructive tonic and body builder, for it naturally follows that any med icine that brings about proper assim ilatin of the food and the thorough elimination of the waste products must, therefore, have a far-reaching j and most beneficial effect udou the: entire system.—Advertisement.

OXFORD. MISS. I r I Illinois Central System Makes an Appeal to Shippers and Consignees v The amount paid out by the railroads on account of loss and damage to freight represents an economic waste burdensome alike to the railroads and the public. That this waste is substantial is shown by the following record of the loss and damage payments made by Class I mads: 1916 .$ 23,346,965 1917 . 35,079,757 1918 . 55,852,797 1919 . 104,507,174 1920 . 104,398-930 ' The Illinois Central System has borne its share of the economic waste on account of loss and damage to freight, as will be seen by examining these figures. N 1916 .$ 655,293 1917 . 1,077,720 1918 . 1,653,706 1919 . 2,298,250 1920 . 2,745,099 The foregoing figures show how theproblem of loss and damage to freight has got out of hand. The Illinois Central System, in common with other rail raods, is making a determined effort to reduce this drain upon its revenues. In this we need the painstaking co-operation of shippers and consignees. We, therefore, earnestly request that all shippers and receivrs of freight co-operate with us to make this movement a success. During May, 1921, 68 per cent of the amount paid out for loss and damage to freight on the Illinois Central System was carload shipments. We request car load shippers to insist upon being provided with cars suitable for the paiticulai kind of freight they desire to ship and to see that shipments are properly braced and stowed in cars to prevent damage by shifting. We request shippers of less-than-carload freight to comply with the rules and specifications of the Consolidated Classification Commitee appointed by the Interstate Commerce Commission by selecting substantial containers m which to pack their goods for shipment, so that packages may not be crushed and contents damaged when loaded into cars with other freight. We request them to mark their packages plainly as to name of consignee and destination, removing all old marks that may appear on packages, and to furnish legible bill ing orders, so that billing may indicate clearly the name of consignee and de stination. We also request them to deliver their goods at freight depots early in the day to avoid hurried loading and billing. . The president of a large wholesale house on the lines of the Illinois Cen tral System was told by one of our agents that many packages were being sent back to his house on account of improper packing and addressing. He express ed great surprise and immediately called in his shipping clerk to ask him, m the presence of our agent, how many packages were being returned from the Illi nois Central System daily. The shipping clerk replied: “I cannot tell you ex actly, but a good many ” As a result of this interview, the necessary corrective measurs'were immediately applied. . We request receivers of freight to observe the character of containers used by shippers and the manner in which goods are packed, crated and marked, particularly when goods are not receiv ed in good order, and to make those facts known to the shippers, appealing to them to use good containers on the ground that defective goods and delayed transportation seiwice cause them a loss of trade. We also request receivers of freight to notify our representatives promptly of any concealed loss or damage to their shipments, in order that im mediate investigation may be made- Some receivers of freight neglect to do this for days, and even weeks, after shipment have been received. rendering it difficult for the proper inspection and investigation to be made. This militates against good service. Our purpose in nresenting.this problem to our patrons is to enable us to ren der a better service, by eliminating delav in the delivery of freight in good con dition. and to assist in reducing the cost of transportation. Bv no means do we t claim that all of the trouble is due to lack of care on the part of shippers and consignees. We are doing everything within our nov er to collect abuse., foi which we are responsible. We are putting forth our best efforts to render a service of satisfaction. Bv working closely with shippers and receivers of fveio-ht we believe it possible to bring the troublesome question of loss and damage under control, to the great advantage of shippers and receivers of freight, as well as to this railroad. Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited. C. H. MARKHAM. President, Illinois Central System. ' j -—+--- ' ' ■ r~:: —-— -- --- 6\votc\i Kotos &x\A £ommewto | Mrs. A. F. Calloway.

Especially do our soi ls go up to Thee in adoring wonder as we think of His cross and passion. It is in the cross we find our hope.

Keep us walking with Thee; safeguard us from all attacks of the evil one, and if it be Thy good pleasure, take us into the circle of Thy anointed ones, that we may effectively serve Thee. Help us in our daily duties, whether these lie in our home or business; therein may we honor and glorify Thee, and prove a blessing to our fellow men.

These meetings of Christian workers are worth their weight in gold to those who put themselves under the influence. Bro. Lipscomb informs us that he has secured the services of Rev. W. A. Wilson of New Albany, Confemece Evangelist who has had great success in this line of work, to lead the ser vices at our approaching Camp Meet ing the 2nd Sunday in August. Bro. W’ilson comes to us, highly re commended as a revival preacher and a man of God, full of the Holy Ghost, and of Zeal for the Conversion of the unsaved. May God bless his efforts here.
