"I had pains about my hart at times that made me feel I'd simply have to give up" Is the signed state ment made by Mr. J. H. O'Brien of South Jacksonville, Fla. "I suppose it was caused from the gases on my stomach which pressed against my heart and made me think I had some kind of heart trouble. I often had that full, swollen feeling tn my stomach. In addition to thio I was daily constipated, and had to take medicine for that trouble very often. My sleep was broken and failed to rest and refresh me. I was bilious and frequently had headaches. Ona bottle of Dreco went right to the root of my trouble and relieved the gas on my stomach and immediately the pains near my heart ceased, my bowels began to move regularly and my sleep refreshed me. I feel that I am getting younger every day. I know my general health has been greatly benefitted by Dreco and I gladly recommend It to all who suf fer as I did." Dreco is a vegetable compound made from juices of roots, herbs, barks and berries, and does not con tain any Iron, mercury, potash .or acids. Dreco acts pleasantly on the vital organs and strengthens them. All good druggists now sell Dreco and it Is highly recommended In Lakeland by Red Cross Pharmacy.

One day there strutted into the barroom a swaggering individual who stepped up to the bar, put his foot on the rail, and called in a loud tone for a drink. After he had imbibed several drinks he turned around and in a heavy voice announced, "I can lick any citizen ot this here town." No one seemed to pay much attention to him bo after a few more drinks had percolated Into his system he turned around again and announced, "I can lick any citizen of this here county." Receiv ing no attention he again attacked the liquid refreshment which by this time had raised the temperature of his nervous system to such a point that he was like a man looking at the world through the small end of a funnel, the world looked small, so he turned again and proclaimed In a loud voice, "I can lick any citizen of this here state". About that time a quiet looking chap stepped up, landing a stiff one to his jaw that knocked him into the corner and remarked, "You Just covered a little too much territory, I'm a citizen of this state." So the statement in last night's Telegram by a recently arrived com petitor that he had the only expert storage battery shop in Lakeland covered a little too much territory. He has been in the storage battery business about ninety days or so. We have been in the storage battery business since nineteen hundred and eight a matter of eleven years.
