; World’s Leading Authorities Show Just What Tnalac Really Is
and Explain Effect of Each of Ten Ingredients on the Human
System. Power of Medicine Conclusively Proven.
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.
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
“It is highly esteemed in loss of ap
petite during convalescence from
There are certain other elements in
Tanlac which, because of their influ
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
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:

Illinois Central System Makes an Appeal
to Shippers and Consignees
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
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.
