JUNK DEALER SEES CHANCE
First Smashing Blow Dealt by Local

With the declaration that the sale
of poisonous, putrid food was almost
equivalent to murder. District Judge
Bell sentenced William Reed to 30 days
in jail and topped that with a fine of

blow dealt by a local court in the cam

last week of selling spoiled cans of
salmon, sold him as chicken feed, for
Reed's attorney offered to plead
guilty last week if the district attor
ney's office would recommend leniency,
a fine of not more than 110 being sug

Dempsey declared the least he would
recommend In case of a plea of guilty
was a fine of $2i, so a jury trial was

A peculiar phase of the case was the

Tanlac Ends Trouble.
"Tanlac helped me get rid of a case
of stomach trouble that had been both
ering me for three years and I don't
believe there's another medicine like
It," said Mrs. C. B. Crecraft of 141
Orand avenue North, Portland, to a
Tanlac representative recently.
"During that time I had suffered
more or less from indigestion and
stomach trouble," continued Mrs. Cre
craft, "but it was only in the last year
that my condition got so bad that I
lost my appetite almost entirely, and
what little I did force myself to eat
just seemed to sour and fill me up
with gas soon after eating and lots of
times this caused my heart to palpi
tate, and I could hardly get my breath.
At times I suffered terribly from
cramps in my stomach and had to be
very careful what I ate because there
were some things, like cabbage and
tomatoes or anything acid, that I didn't
dare touch. I was also troubled a good
deal with aick headaches and sometimes
suffered so much from dizziness 1

finally got so run down in health and
felt so weak and tired all the time that
I was hardly able to do my housework
and look after the children, and.
although I took medicines in the hope
of finding something to relieve me,
nothing seemed to help me a particle.
"I was in Just this condition when I
decided to try Tanlac because I had
read so much about the medicine I
wanted" to see if it would help me like
others claimed it had helped them.
Well, I didn't notice much change in
my condition by the time I had fin
ished that first bottle of Tanlac, but
when I got started on the second bot

so I kept on with the treatment until
now I actually feel like a different

good I am hungry all the time and I
