World's Record Is
Bottles Sold In Four Years Would
Reach Front New York
To Denver Colo.
Four years ago very few people
h:)d ever heard of Tanlac. 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
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
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

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, !
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

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

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

infectious disease and is caused ;
this year, as it has always been

Errors of diet are mainly responsi

PAINT AS AN ASSET.!
Bankers Say They Lend Mort
Money on Property When J
Buildings Are Wei! Painted, j
AN INDICATION OF THRIFT.
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. The
