The Bank of burdock
The wise man, and the successful man, invariably, is
very careful in the selection of his bank and his doctor.
He knows that his life may depend on the judgment and
ability of his doctor. He fully realizes that the life and
success of his business, be it professional, merchandising
or farming, may depend on his banker.
There is no question but that we shall pass through
an adjustment period, bordering on a panic, within the
next few years, present conditions foreshow this, and the
man who has not already tied up with an established, re
liable bank a bank whose officers have successfully with
stood times of stress, may shortly regret his lack of judg
ment. Select a bank that is able to take care of you in
times of plenty, as well as in times of famine, and you can
then rest easy. Remember the solid, dependable things
of life are not based op promises, but on deeds. Our past
record is what counts.
We have the above necessary qualities to offer our
customers, besides personal services whenever our opinion
is desired on business or personal matters of our friends.
All deposits in thi: bank is guaranteed by the depos
itors guaranty fund of the State of Nebraska.

Was Unable to Hit a Lick of Work
When He Began Taking Tan-
lac-sIs All Right Now.
"I had fallen olT thirty pounds
and was unable to work and al
though I have been taking Tanlac
only a little more than a month. I
have already picked up twenty-five
pounds of my lost weight and I am
feeling fine," was the statement
made by Frank A. Gustafson, a well
known farmer of Manning. Iowa,
when he called at the Sherman &
McConnell drug store in Omaha, a
few days ago.
"My troubles had been pulling
me down for three years and I had
just about played out altogether,"
he said. "I had given up my work
entirely and never expected to be
able .to hit another lick. My stomach
was all out of order and my appe
tite had about gone down to nothing.
I couldn't eat anything except some
thing light and many a time I would
get up from the table without eating
a bite. I had terrible pains in my
stomach and gas would bloat me up
and cause my heart to beat eo f3st
I thought sometimes I had heart
trouble. My head ached so bad at
times the pains nearly set me wild
and I would get so dizzy I could
hardly stand on my feet. At night
I would roll and tumble around un
able to get much sleep and morning
found me feeling worse than when
I went to bed. I went down from
one hundred and seventy pounds to
one hundred and forty, was growing
weaker all the time and felt that
my time wasn't far off.
"But Tanlac came my way and
my troubles are now all over. I feel
strong and healthy like a man
ought to feel and I am not afraid to
tackle any kind of work. I have the
finest kind of appetite and my big
gain in weight, twenty-five pounds,
shows how well my food agrees with
m. I am not bothered with head
acres or dizzy spells any more and
I sleep like a top and get up every
morning feeling great. Tanlac has
done everything for me I could ask
and I recommend it heartily."

Makes a Very Nicely Appointed Bank
The new fixtures of the Farmers
and Merchants hank, which arrived
this week, have now been put in
place by Matt Thimgan and his son
Victor, and on their installation,
makes one of the prettiest banks both
on the inside and out. The building
which is of gray pressed brick with
cut stone trimmings, makes a very
attractive building, and is a credit
to the town, or in fact to a town of
much larger population. With the
r'nside a model of beauty and conven
ience, the building is very complete.

Two telegrams from the factories,

ney Pills an excellent remedy and I
am glad to say a good word in their
praise. I suffered from dull, heavy
pains in the small of my back and
it got so bad I would have to get on
my knees and straighten myself up
gradually after I once got clown.
There was also a difficulty with the
action of my kidneys and the secre
tions were retarded in passage. The
doctors told me I had a stone in the
bladder but they could only give me
.temporary relief. I was finally ad
vised to try Doan's Kidney Pills and
after taking the contents of one box
I noticed my troubles beginning to
disappear. In a short time my health
began to improve in every way."
