He said the strike had started m I Winnipeg on a simple industrial is - sue. Two days apo another strike. had started m Montreal on an in - I dusUial issue so the government had . and that more than twelve million bottles had been sold eiuring the past lour years. These ate unusual figures, and the q nstion naturally arises in the mind of the leader why this phenomenal success and why Iihs this preparation so far out - stripped all other medicines medicines of its kind. It is only natural, therefore, that the manufacturers tJHVild offer some explanation to satisfy public interest. In the first place, Tanlac Is manufactured manufactured in one of the largest and most modernly equipped laboratories in this country. Its formula Is purely purely ethical and complies with all national national and state pure food and drug laws. Altogether there are ten Ingredients Ingredients in Tanlac, each of which is of recognized therapeutic value. Many of these ingredients have been individually known and used since civilization first began, and some of them have been used and prescribed by leading physicians everywhere, but until they were brought together in proper proportion proportion and association as in Tardac formula, formula, humanity had not heretofore realized their full value and effect. In referring to one of the more important important ingredients of Tanlac, the Encyclopedia Encyclopedia Britannica says: "It has long been the source of the most valuable tonic medicines that have ever been discovered." In referring to others of the general tonic drugs contained contained in Tanlac the 13th Edition of 1'otter's Therapeutics, a standard medical text book, states that "they impart general tone and strength to the entire system, including all organs organs and tissues." This same well known authority in describing the physiological uctlou of still another of the Ingredients of Tanlac which is of value in treating what is .ommonly known as " a rundown rundown condition" uses the following expression: "It Is highly esteemed In loss of appetite during convalescense from acute diseases." There arc certain other elements in Tanlac which because of their - influence influence influence upon the appetite, digestion, assimilation assimilation and elimination Improve the nutrition and vital activity of all Hie tissues and organs of the body, and produce that state of general tonicity which is called health. In discussing another ingredient the; Encyclopedia Britannica says: "It is one of the most efficient of that class of substances which act upon tho stomach so us to Invigorate iligcstion and thereby increase the general nutrition. It is used in dyspepsia, chlorosis, anemia and various various othr diseases in which the tone of the stomach and alimentary canal is deficient." Concerning still another another ingredient this same standard authority says: "It causes dilation of the gastric blood vessels, Increases secretion of the gastric Juice, and causes greater activity in the movements movements of the muscular layers in the walls of the stomach. It also tends to lessen the sensibility of the stomach, stomach, and so may relieve gastric pain." The United Ftates luspensatorv manes tnc roiiowing comment I were going tn together. (Applause).!

"Xo matter what they do," he continued, "you must obey the instructions of the committee and maintain law and order. order. Do not be stampeded." Mr. Smith concluded with a strong appeal on behalf of those of the strikers' families who were already feeling the pinch. Mr. Battersby, of the outside civic employees, announced that owing to the action of the Daughters of the Empire in supplying the places of striking telephone girls he would I ,,flo,hln , h o.,,., show to be lield by the Horticultural der named v" - ' ' r - 1 Mr. S.

There must be some! reason for that large audience fol - lowing those leaders. He had comelto home from France to find that what j cost one dollar when he left cost four dollars now.

Tanlac was designed primarily for the correction of disorders of the stomach, liver, and bowels. At the same time, however, it Is a powerful reconstructive tonic and body builder, ,or it naturally follows that any Medicine that brings about proper assimilation of the food and the thorough elimination of the waste products must therefore have a far - reaching and most beneficial effect upon the entire system. Although Tanlac's claims for supremacy supremacy are abundantly supported by the world's leading authorities. It lis the people themeelves who have Ireally made Tanlac what it is.

"We," Mr. Kavanagh said, "who went to South Africa, were regulars. It was our Job and we had no claim when we came back. But the men who went to France went to fight for the country country and now they want it." Laughter and applause). He touched with some bitterness on tho fact that while the strike bulletin was prohibited In the military hospitals becauso of its inflammatory, inflammatory, nature the returned citizens' bulletin was all right. "Of all the things ever brought out to incite people to disorder!" he exclaimed. exclaimed. It was brought out by people people who wanted disorder that force might be used to break the strike. The government was not stopping the movement which was not one of individuals individuals but of the masses of the workers. He again pointed out that the strike committee drew no pay and even those who had been on pay and were entitled to pay were in the position that their "meal ticket" had ceased with that of the rank and file. He insisted that there was no inflammatory matter in the strike bulletin. Their quanrel was with no individual but with conditions. - CUSP TO OKAM1 lOHk
