"There's Nothing as Good as
Tanlac," Says Portland Man;
Gains Twenty-five Pounds.
"In all my long experience I have
never found anything as good as Tan
lac when it comes to relieving suffer
ing, said J. A. N'eisz, a well known
employe of the Pacific Car and Foundry
Co., and who lives at 14 East Fifty
sixth street North, Portland, the other
"My troubles began about three years
ago," continued Mr. Xeisz. "and I have
been having a tough time of it ever
since that is, until I Commenced tak
ing Tanlac. I had rheumatism in my
arms and back, and I suffered almost
constantly during all that time. Of
course there were times when this
trouble was worse than at others, but I
can truthfully say that there was hardly
ever a time when I was not conscious
of pain to some extent. My arms were
so stiff and sore at times that I
couldn't raise 'my hands to my head.
Besides what I spent for treatment and
medicine, the time I lost from my work
on account of this rheumatism amount
ed to over J400 in salary. I couldn't
sleep much, and just gradually went
down hill until I had lost in weight
from 135 to 110 pounds, and was so
weak and run down that I could hardly
get about at all.
"A friend of mine who had been suf
fering from this same kind of trouble,
told me that Tanlac was the only thing
that had ever done him any good, and
advised me to give it a trial. Well, to
make a long story short, I have Just
finished my sixth bottle of Tanlac, and
I am as free from suffering in every
way, and am as well and strong as I
ever was in my life. I weigh 135
pounds now. which means that I have
gotten back all I lost in weight. I
have regained all my strength and can
do as much work as I could fifteen
years ago. All that soreness and stiff
ness has gone from my arms and I can
raise my hands above my head with
out the least trouble. Yes. sir, Tanlac
has been a godsend to me, and I never
lose an opportunity to recommend it to
others. I am buying another bottle to
take home with me today, for I never
expect to be without it."
Tanlac is sold in Portland by the
Owl drug store. Adv.
funds. He enlisted in the army under
the name of Ivan Raymond Fuson.
According to Prosecuting Attorney
Yates, who stated that today was the
first time that this matter had been
formally presented to him in the way
of evidence. Franklin can be prose
cuted for bigamy in the State of Wash
ington, where he was married, and is
also amenable to prosecution in Ore
Kotl, where he lived a while with Miss
Houton. whom he married at Vancou
ver. He. could be prosecuted in Florida
also, as well as in other states, foi
bigamy. According to Mr. Yates, in
additioiu.to the charges of bigamy that
could be preferred against Franklin,
he could be prosecuted under the Mann
white slave act, as well as for thefts.
