WONDERFUL GAIN IN
Young Woman Only Weighed 76
.. Pounds Now Weighs Over
100 Gains Every Day.
"Before I began taking Tanlac I
only weighed 76 pounds. I now
weigh over one hundred and am gain
ing every day," eaid Miss LaRue
Davis, of Chattanooga, Tenn.
"I bought my first bottle of Tan
lac at Gas City, Ind., and it helped
me so much that I continued using
It. I have always been very deli
cate and suffered a great deal from
stomach trouble and rheumatism. I
rarely ever had any appetite and
simply could not relish anything. I
fell off until I only weighed 76
pounds and was so thin I looked per
fectly awful. This is the condition
I was in when I began taking Tanlac.
"Oh, I feel so different now. Even
my complexion is improved. My ap
petite is good and I can hardly get
enough to eat. Tanlac is simply
grand and I can truthfully say it is
the only medicine that has ever done
me any good."
Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by

NOTICE TO POLICY HOLDERS
At a meeting of the Board of Di
rectors of the Platte Mutual Insur
ance company last evening, a new
business policy was adopted, where
by in the future the amount of any
one risk shall not exceed $1,500, and
in the business district not closer
than every other place of business.
Under those conditions it was con
sidered that Mutual insurance can
prosper and give goocK protection
without making assessments. The
Platte Mutual has been writing in
surance in this city for the past
twenty-five years and during all that
time had only one assessment, not
withstanding the rate for insurance
was about half that of the Old Line
companies, hence the patrons of the
local company have saved largely on
cost of their insurance.-
It is a home company and all the
money paid for insurance is kept at
home and deserves the patronage of
everyone ivho is interested in seeing
the company prosper. Boost.

A Grateful Letter
It is in trying conditions like that
related below by Mrs. Geo. L. North;
of Naples, N. Y., that proves thej
worth of Chamberlain's Colic and!
Diarrhoea Remedy. "Two years ago'
"ast summer," she says, "our little'
boy had dysentary. At that time we
were living in the country eight miles
from a doctor. Our son was taken ill
suddenly and was about the sickest
child I ever saw. He was in terrible
pain all the time and passed from one
convulsion into another. I sent my
husband for a doctor and after he
was gone thought of a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy in the cupboard. I gave him
some of it and he began to improve
at once. By the time the doctor ar
rived, he was out of danger,"
