Mr. Hughes' declaration apparently
referred to the act of congress in

"We have a new spirit abroad in

English Defense of Realm Act Made to
Cover This Restriction.
London, Sept. 6.England's defense

tionally high wages of war workers
have created an extensive demand.

Minneapolis Man Declares Tanlac is
the Only Medicine to
Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 2,A.
Hallman, of Merriam Park, Minneap
olis R. F. D., is one of the hundreds
of people who have found Tanlac, the
celebrated new medicine, surprisingly
beneficial. Mr. Hallman gave a state
ment on August 22 telling why he is
so grateful to the new preparation.
"For a long time I was bothered
with stomach trouble," Mr. Hallman
said. "My stomach usually was in a
soured condition and gas often formed
on my stomach. I was frequently
bothered with heartburn. It was
difficult for me to keep food on my
stomach, especially in the mornings.
"I read in the papers accounts of
Tanlac's help for others and I decided
to give this new medicine a trial. The
gas has disappeared from my stomach
entirely since I began taking Tanlac
and for my other troubles'Tanlac has
proved very beneficial. I tried many
other medicines and none of them
helped me. I recommend Tanlac."
Tanlac, the Master Medicine is
especially beneficial for stomach, liver,
and kidney trouble, catarrhal com
plaints, rheumatism, nervousness, loss
of appetite and the like and is a fine
strength builder, giving health and
strength to weak, run down men and
Tanlac is now being especially in
troduced and explained in Princeton
at the C. A. Jack Drug Co. store. Adv.

"Monte Rolfe, the famous English
aviator who came here to make flights
today certainly made good his word
to have everyone sit up and take no
tice. He started from the reservation,
made a circle over the city, then
worked in toward the business district,
and when he was over the city seemed
to be flying in circles so small that
it appeared as though he could not
possibly make the turns without tip
ping over the machine. Then he shot
up and up, and up, almost out of sight,
then came down in a spiral dive, to
within a few feet of the town, and
flew away again like a streak of
"Rolfe says his machine is very
fast, in fact faster than he cares to
have it, but he has had to fly so con
tinuously that he cannot find time to
change it. He describes the machine
as a bucking broncho, says you've got
to hold her in, or she'll sure run away.
"The flights were witnessed by
everyone in the city, and pronounced
by those that claim to know, as being
better than looping the loop."Los
