Well-Known Conductor Spent
$1300 Without Getting Re

Pounds on Tanlac
"I have gained 32 pounds since
commenced taking Tanlac which
makes me 12 pounds heavier than
I ever was in my life, and all my
troubles have been completely over
come." said J. D. Gosney. a well
known conductor for the Port
land Light and Power company, and
who lives at 490 Umatilla avenue, Port
land, the other day.
"I spent at least 11500 during the
past year," he continued, "trying to
rind some medicine or treatment that
would overcome my troubles, but I
never got any relief until I got hold
of this Tanlac. I had a severe attack
cf pneumonia last December, which
laid me up for 61 days, and left me
a very week, run-down condition.
My stomach was so out of order that
the very lightest kind of food would

often have severe headaches that would

One day a friend of mine advised
me to give Tanlac a trial, and while I
thought it was money thrown away, I
