Today it unquestionably has the largest sale of any medicine in the worid, and is as well known in Canada as in this country. In the brief period of only four years time this now famous remedy has leap-d from obscurity to the very plnacie of success. Its f- me in fact, has long since spread beyond the limits of the continent and numerous inquiries regarding it are now being received from many foreign countries. Very few people, however, fully realize what a wonderful recor, Tanlac has made. Indeed, if it were not for tie unquestionable facts and figures given out by the largest and best known drug firms of. the country the story of its" success would be hard to believe. Up to January first the total sales of ' Tanlac amounted to ap proximately twelve million bottles. The demand, however, is increasing for during the first ten week: this year over one rhiiiioo bottles O iiiui. .IX TT V'IJ Ul I .were sold and distribuLed in the United states and Canada the exact figure being 1,306,186 in three months. At this rate, therefore, the sales ! for the present year will amount to more than five million bottles. This will mean that 17,000 bottles of Tanlac will be sold during every day of the year or 2100 bottles for every hour of the average working j day. These figures are too stupendous for the average mind to grasp, , but one may visualize what twelve mil lion bottles mean by imagining tVem laid out in a single fLe end to end. Thus laid thev wouh! ' make l A. 1 . f f Ik T . - a iracii oi laniac iroin JNew York through Chicago, and on to Denver Colorado; or they would form a double track of Tanlac from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Piled end on -end they would tower 135 times as high as Pikes Peak, or rise 13,333 times higher than the VVoolworth building in New York, ! I the tallest building in the world. The demand for Tantac has be come so great that its sale instee d of being measured by the gross as I other preparations have been is now rppknupH hv thp oar nni anA ' .jvpn lv lhp train T ! this it is a noteworthy fact thatj08Slad to send literature regarding he leading drug jobbers everywhere ; now bay Tanlac almost exclusively in car load lots. To supply the Pa cific coast trade alone requires from forty to fifty car loads per year-jobbers of the Middle Weet are selling from seventy to eighty cars per year. The well known drug firm of Hessig-Ellis Drug Company of Memphis, Term, has sold over forty car loads since the introduction of iani'ac in that state four years ago V'ithin the past ninety days, ten car bads of Tanlac have gone o supply the demand of British Col umbia, SasKachewan, Alberta, ?;nd Manitoba, Canada. The Owl Drug Company of San Franeisc , the largest retail druggkt on the Pacific coast, state that thsy have sold more than 180,009 bot tles at retail, which surpasses the remarkable record of the Jacobs Pharmacy Company of Atlanta, who have -sold approximately 80, 000 bottles at retail. Tanlac is composed of the most beneficial roots and herbs kncrtvii to science. The formula complies with all national and state pure food and health laWs of both the United States and Canada; and absolute merit and merit alone is responsible for its phenomenal and unprecedented success. Tanlac is sold by all . first class druggists. . v- s A ENTRY NO. 6099 C.

' Ex-officio Entry taker. mi caused m The diarrheal diseases of children ' commonly known as summer bowel ' complaints, are bein reported from many sections of North Carolina. ! The State Board of Health states uidi uns ciiiss ot diseases is not icau y influenza, as is being-l " , commonly reported, and that there is no direct connection between the ! two infections. Infant diarrhea is an I infectious disease and is caused ; this year, as it has always been caused, by improper feeding and iack of sanitation about the home. Errors of diet are mainly responsi ble for starting the condition which is a serious one and kills more than 1 2600 babies each year; a diet con taining too much sugar (proprietary foods, as a rule, come under this class) being the most .usual. cause. Too much sugar upsets the baby's ! digestive tract and predisposes to the infectious forms . of diarrhea which are transmitted by flies from open privies and soiled napkins or ! spread by strawberries and other vegetables. The State Board of Health wishes to impress the following facts about infant diarrhea: 1. It is a dangerous infectious di sease and babies who contract it should receive immediate attention. C T C - ... 2. Influenza is not the cause of the disease and is not responsible for it. Parents who do not provide home sanitation and proper food for their babies are the ones respon sible for the disease. 3.

Does it pay t paint carefull j tana buildings? Doe It add to the selling value of a farm when buildings art properly kept up and regularly paint ed? A careful Inquiry of a number of leading bankers in, the Mississippi, val ley, Including such states as Iowa, Illi nois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana aid Mis souri, reveals the fact that la aearty every case the bankers did hesi tate to say that they would leal all th way from 5 to 50 per ceat. tjor land where farm buildings were weH painted and kept In good coadltUa. They maintain that well kept-a aa well painted buildings and fences ar an Indication of thrift ana that ih thrifty farmer Is a good client, aid to him money can be safely loaned. Am average of the returns from then bankers shows that the increased loam value because of painted buildings is around 22 per cent. Sorce of these baHkers make tiiier esting comment A Michigan concern says that, while not especially pre pared to advise definitely In respens to this Inquiry, the officers would Uaa more money on farms where bonding were painted than where they wert not so treated. This bank also finda that where houses, barns and fences are wl taken care of the farm la a profitable proposition, and baakers la general consider the farmer a gw client. Another Michigan bank says "farm buildings out of repair ant needing paint Indicate that the ewner . Is slow pay." Such farms are rated at about one-third of the assessed Talno for loans. Where the farm bnlldlngs are In good shape the rating Is oao half. The president of a middle weafc. ern bank snys that when real etat loans are considered, painted buildings are always taken Into consideration la making nil estimate. The general'&a pearance Tof the property surrounding ihe house and barn and also the Belds and fences would be carefully observ ed. Tie further says that he has no hesitancy in saying that he would ab solutely refuse a Ionn on farms where the buildings were not kept np and well painted. In his Judgment, nn palnted farm buildings would redoes the loan value at least 25 per cent A Minnesota banker sny that ho ts much more willing to loan money where the buildings are well painted. In his particular case he believes that he would loan 20 per cent more than if the buildings were not properly taken care of. A farmer who wtll keep his buildings painted takes a much deeper interest .n his work thaa one who does not. Another Minne sota bank says that well painted bwild Ings have resulted In securing from his bank sometimes as high as 23 per cent more money than where tho buddings are not painted. An his ?n,tvrn says that it will loan 25 per cent more money on a well kept farm where buildings are painted at least once every five years. A southern Illi nois bank says that it has bo fixe rule about this, but It does make a de cided difference when owners of farm lands apply for loans. If the buildings are well painted and thus well pre served the loan rate would net only be cheaper, but the amount ef money borrowed would be larger. A northern Illinois bank does not hesitate to sajj that It would loan fully 50 per cent, more on a farm where buildings wers well, painted and In good order thaa where they were not The vice presi dent who answers the Inquiry, goes on to say: 'There probably are many farmers gobd financially and morally who permit their buildings to remain ; unpalnted, but as a rule the most sub stantial people who live In the coun try keep their buildings well painted." An Iowa bank, through Its vice ores- i taent states that it would make a dif ference of at least 25 per cent In fa vor of the farm with painted bond ings. Another Iowa concern says that It would make a difference of at least 20 per cent All this being trne. It la eerfectl evident that It Is a good business prop-j osuion to keep the farm buildings well painted. They not only look better and are more pleasing to the ewner. but the farm would sell to better ad vantage, the loan value of the property would be greatly increased and thai nulldlngs themselves would last mnch 1 longer and need less repair.
