MILES TO GET
Kansas Farmer Tried Many

of Stanley, Kansas, while in the Owl

"I have already taken three bot
tles of Tanlac," he continued, "and
.have gained eight pounds. It has
done me so much good that I
wouldn't think of being without it.
I have been suffering from stom
ach trouble and a run down condi
tion for five years and had gotten
in such a bad fix that I would often
have to stop work for four or five
' days at a time. I couldn't eat much
and what little I did force down
would cause sour stomach, gas and
misery. I was constipated all the

up, and I was so nervous and shaky
I couldn't raise a cun of coffee to

I had no energy and very ' little
strength, and when I worked at all
it was just a drag for me.

get something to set me right and
give me some strength I would soon
just have to give up altogether.
So I got Tanlac and while I have
only taken three bottles I am feel

appetite is fine and I can fat most
anything I want without being
troubled with sour stomach and gas.
The headaches and dizziness have
about left me and I am getting
good, sound sleep every night. I
used to have pains in all my joints,

Cocoanut Oil Fine
For Washing,. Hair
If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared sham
poos contain too much alkali. This
dries the scalp, makes the hair brit
tle, and is very harmful. Mulsif ied
cocoanut oil shampoo (which is pure
and entirely . greaseless) , is much
better than anything else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with
water and rub it in. One pr two
teaspoonfuls will make an abun
dance of rich, creamy lather, and
cleanses the hair and scalp thor
oughly. The lather rinses out easily,
and removes every particle of dust,
dirt, dandruff and excessive oil.
The hair dries quickly and evenly,
and it leaves it fine and silky, bright,
fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get Mulsified cocoanut
oil shampoo at most any drug store.
It is very cheap, and a few ounces
is enough to last everyone in the
family for months. Adv.
