"I have used Tanlac exclusively for seven years in the treatment of my charity patients." continued Mrs. Bor- den, "and my experience has been that, for keeping the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowe$ functioning properly and for toning up the system in general, Tanlac has o equal. Recently I had a woman patient who could not even keep water on her stomach for fifteen minutes. Six bottles of Tanlac fixed her up so she could eat absolutely any- thing. Another patient, a mum seemed unable to dle.t any food at all. Three bottles of Tanlac put him In such fine shape he went back to work. These two cases are typical.

For Like Looking at the Sun Looking into one of the huge ro- tary kilns where the raw materials for cement are burned into clinker is just like looking at the noonday sun. The terrific heat required makes a glare o[ light so intense that the glowing flame would temporarily blind you. But borrow the workman's colored goggles to protect your eyes while you take another look into the kiln. Then you will see a tornado of powdered coal--or gas or spraying oil--bursting into a sheet of sun- white flame. Into the other d of the kiln flow the powdered limestone and shale [chy]--the raw materials for cement. As the slowly revolving kiln tumbles the materials about, they are subjected to gradu- ally increasing heat. During their three-hour ourney through this inerno, moisture and gases are first giv .en off.Finally as the powdered materials reach the sunwhite flame, they hall melt into glass-hard balls called "clinker."
