prominently than any other, perhaps,, is the very large number
of well-known men and women from all parts of the state who
have recently reported an astonishing and rapid increase in

completely restored them to health and strength, after every
other medicine and the most skilled medical treatment had .
failed. , ...

Brown, engineer on the Chicago, Bur

at 420 South 19th street, Lincoln, and
who states that for. three years his.
health was so seriously impaired that
he was almost a nervous and physical
wreck. Soon after taking Tanlac his
digestion rapidly improved, his pain
disappeared, his nerves became calm
and steady and he gained thirty
Another interesting case is that of
E. A. Weldy, the well-known manager
of the Emory Hotel in Scottsbluff,
Neb., who says that he was suffering
from a complete nervous breakdown
and was in such a serious condition
that he despaired of ever regaining
his health and strength, but upon tak
ing a few bottles of Tanlac his health
was fully restored and he made a gain
of eighteen pounds. .
Mrs. Arch Allen, of 3322 North
65th street, Omaha, who formerly
lived in Evansville, Ind., and was at
one time a nurse in a hospital near
that city, makes a statement which,
coming as it does from one of such
wide experience .in relieving suffer
ing, is of unusual interest. Mrs.
Allen says that she became so weak
that she couldn't lift her ten months'
old baby, her nervous system was
almost a wreck and she was often
confined to her bed for weeks at a
time. She states that upon the ad
vice of the other nurses at the hos

that she was soon entirely relieved
of all her troubles, became well and
strong and increased twelve pounds
in weight. '
N. H. Church, of 1117 ' Davenport

so much from rheumatism, stomach
and liver trouble that he fell off

hurt so bad he could hardly raise it to
his head. After taking Tanlac he im

four ounces of ordinary liquid arvon;
apply it at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp and rul
it in gently with the finger tips.
Do this tonight, and by morning
most if not all of your dandruff will

and entirely destroy every single sign
and trace of it, no matter how much
dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will 'be soft, and'

You can get liquid arvon at any
