Reclaim Homes for U. S. Sol
Washington, Nov. 15.-A number
of the Southern states, notably South
Carolina and Tennessee, are vitally
interested in the proposed project to
reclaim and put to use their waste
and unemployed lands, for there are
millions of acres in these states which
the government might take over an
so reclaim and improve as to make
them of inestimable value to the sol
diers after the war who must be pro
vided with homes
Already Secretary Lane, as has
been previously announced, has
agreed to inspect the waste lands of
South Carolina with a view to consid
.ring them in his plan of reclamation
for the provision of homes for sol
diers after the war. Of course it
would be out of the question for the
government to take over all the
waste lands in the United States for
the purposes indicated, but if Secre
tary Lane's proposition should meet
the approval of Congress and of the
president, when the time comes to
mature it, a great deal of the unused
lands in the Southern States wil
probably be employed for the pur
pose indicated, and it is well that this
unproductive property should be
brought to the attention of those who
have the matter in hand
Secretary Lane announces that the
preparation of a program looking to
providing farms for returned soldiers
has been given into the hands of A.
P. Davis, director and chief engineer
of the reclamation service, who will
have general charge of the work, and
with whom will be nssociated Elwood
Mead, H. T. Cory and Frank W.
'We can have a job at good salary
for every soldier who returns from
France," says Secretary Lane, "if con
gress will give us the financial sup
port needed. And while at work the
?oldier can be making a home for him
self, for which he can pay the gov
ernment in 40 years' time. This plan
has received the endorsement of so
large a percentage of congress and
the press of the country, that it ap
pears to be a probable program; it
certainly is a practicable one. We
have but ?200,000 now for prelimi
nary surveys and reports but this will
be increased no doubt by the coming
congress. There is enough waste and
undeveloped land in this country to
give every soldier a farm, but, of
course, no such program is contem
plated, because all would not want

Do It and Do It on Time.
A friend from a distance was at
?ur home the other day and remark
id, "Mr. French, I am unable to see
low you can accomplish the business

Half of the lack of accomplishment

he man on the land, is due to the
act that he waits for a more conven

in the doing of many tasks that come
to him to do or handling the various
business or social obligations that are
the portion of all good citizens.
All over the country every year
are seen poor crops that are the di
rect result of the farmer's neglect to
break the land on time, to prepare a
first-class seed bed on time, to secure
good seed and proper fertilizers on
time, or to cultivate at the proper
time. Then at the harvest is waste

Too many farmers repair the fence
after the animals have damaged the
crops rather than doing it in time to
guard against damage. Think about
it seriously and you will agree with

Suffering Which Followed.

Instead of Living on Bread and
Water Diet She Now Eats
"I was so afraid to eat because of
the suffering food caused me that I
had been living almost on bread and
water when I heard what a wonder
ful new medicine called Tanlac was
iloing for others. And just think of j
it. I have been saved from the hos

This was the earnest declaration of
.Mrs. Edwin C. Shell, of 6 main Ave.,
Schenectady, N. Y. that shows the
wonderful record this new recon
structive tonic, system purifier and
stomachic is making.
''What a blessing Tanlac has been
to me," Mrs. Shell continued, and
her words have been echoed by thou
sands of other men and women. "For
more than three years," said Mrs. .
Shell, who is the wife of a well known
business man, "I suffered. When I
tried to eat ordinary food it would
not digest but would sour and fer

Interchangeable Gloves to Be
Provided for Soldiers.
The War Department authorizes
the following from the Office of the
Director of Purchase and Storage:
Hereafter troops will receive inter
changeable gloves, which they may
wear on either the right or left hand.
The Clothing and Equipage Division
is now arranging to have all gloves
in process of production made inter
changeable. The interchangeable
glove is a five-finger knitted wool
glove, with seams so "fulled" or
"fluffed" as to be invisible. These
gloves are not shaped to fit snug on
the palm or full on the back of the
hand, but are knitted flat so that the
palm and back are identical. The
thumb is fitted into both the obverse
and reverse sides of the gloves about
a quarter of an inch instead of being
fitted deeply into the palm and slight
ly into the back of the glove. This
makes it possible to shift the gloves
from one hand to the other to equal
ize the wear on both sides and also
obviates the necessity of furnishing
a full pair of gloves to replace the
loss of one, one glove only being fur
nished to replace the lost one. The
exact appearance of one glove may
be obtained by observing the shape
of the open hand pressed on a flat
surface with fingers slightly separ
