Washington. Nov. 16. -The move
ment ol' AUK rican troops to Europe
ha? ceased entirely, and demobilize
lk>n of troops in cantonments and
<amps at home is under way.
Ona. Mandi, chief of staff, made
Ibis announcement to-day. outlining
the War Department's plans in an
swer to questions the country has
berni asking since the day the armis
tice was signed and it became appar
ent the war was over. Ho said that
orders already issued would send
??(?0,000 men back to civil lifo within
two weeks, and that when the pro
gram was in full swing about ?10,0(1(1
won ld i|llil the a rmy daily.
Fighting divisions of Con, Persh
ing's army in Prance will bo demobil
ised as fast as possible in their home
communities. The chiof ol' staff
would make no prediction as to when
ibo iii st division would start home.
lt appears probable, however, that,
the How of returning troops can be
in tull tide before February.
( ermin Divisions First.
Some olii? eis regard it as possible
that certain divisions may be recalled
in advance ol' the general return
movement, lion. Mareil Indicated that
the Forty-second (Rainbow) Division,
because it is composed of men I rom
'?C, States, and ill recognition ol' the
lighting record lt bas made in Prance
during tho active service, would be
marked for special treatment. The
Twenty-sixth (New langland National

Supplementing Con. March's state
ment. Secretary Baker said it would
rmt be necessary to maintain all tho
existing cantonments for demobili
zation purposes, and that a study was
now being made of those desirable
for that purpose. Tho others, with
all tho div isional camps, be indicated,
will be abandoned as soon as the men
now occupying them have been mus
Order ol' Demobilization.
The demobilization will be carried
out in the following order:
First - Development battalions. 7 1
in number, and comprising PS, Mi!?
Second Conscientious objectors,
not under arrest.
Third Spruce production division.
Fourth- Central training schools
tor ofllcers, with some modifications.
Fifth- -t'nitod states (iuards, now
numbering I 35,000 men.
Sixth Railway units.
Kighth - Replacement units
Ninth - Combat divisions.
1,700,04)0 Men Over Hoi1?*.
"Ve have in the United States now
something like I,Ton,Oho men.and to
muster out a force of that kind will,
of course, take some time," said. Cen.
March. '.Fach man has to bo exam
ined physically, his Anal accounts
made so that the men may get the
compensation that they are entitled
to. Blank forms are being shipped
to the various camps for use as these
orders gi into effect.
"The orders that have already
been issued affect some 200,000 men.
1 expect to muster them out In two
weeks. When the machine ls in full
operation we expect to release ;',<>,
000 men a day.
For Regular Army.
"In handling this problem of de
mobilization one of the features that
bad to be considered was the subse
quent retaining of men for the regu
lar army, or what will be the regular
army when Congress liasses laws re
organizing that branch of the govern
ment. When the war broke out
Chere were only a limited number of
such men in the service, and tin
great number ol men who Ulled oui
these 111 < i r s were men who voluntarily
enlisted for I lie/period of the war.
So we have offered Iheso men who
came in for tho period ol the war thc
option of I'C-enlistillg ii they care to.
What is (BVcred.
We have offered au immediate
honorable discharge, with a furlough
o? one month upon re-enlistment, ami
we propose to ask Congress to give to
every single man who has been hon
orably discharged one month's pay,
whatever Iiis made, as a bonus, livery
man who is discharged from the army
is entitled to wear his uniform for a
period of three months. That is a
very necessary thing because the re
leasing to civil life of three or four
million men makes it impossible to
clothe in civilian clothes so great a
Question of Olliccrs.
"As men are discharged, we take
up the question of the ofllcers. Of
ficers who want to apply for commis
sions in the regular army will be con
sidered; officers who want to put
themselves in a class where they can
bc used for futuro military opera
lions will bo offored commissions in
tb? reserve corps. Tb? rest of them
will bo discharged.
"j havo cabled (Jen. Pershing to
return to the United States on troop
transports all the mon who are cas
uals or convalescents, sick or wound
I il. who an- aiiio io tx* moved, and
those mon will como lu a steady flow
across tho Atlantic before the larger
number como back as units.
"With roferonco to tho casualties
in tho American Expeditionary
Forces, I have; cabled (Sen. Pershing
to ropo ii in plain English, and nol
in code, so as to save time, tho name
of every man killed, wounded and
missing, up to tho tim?' of tho armis
tice, not hitherto reported."

Instead of Living on Broad and Willer
Diet, Sho Now Hat?
"I was so afraid to eat because of
tin- sintering food caused me that I
had been living almost on bread and
water when I heard what a wonder
ful new medicine called Tanlae was
doing tor others. And just think of
it! I have been saved from the hos
pital and have gained 15 pounds."
This was tho earnest declaration of
Mrs. Edwin C. Shell, of ?5 Main av
enue, Schenectady, N. Y., that shows
tho wonderful record this now recon
structivo tonic, system purifier and
stomachic is making.
"What a blessing Tanbie has been
to me," Mrs*. Sholl continued, and her
words have been echoed by thousands
of other men and women. "Por
more than three years," said Mrs. j
Shell.who is the wife of a well-known
business man. "I suffered. When I
tried to eat ordinary food lt would
not digest, but would sour and fer
ment and cause gas. bloating and
pains. Tho pains would extend even
to my chest, and I would have a feel
ing of suffocation and shortness of
breath. . Some nights I would get
only two or three hours' sleep. When
tho stilling spells caine I would have
to sit up. When I tried to do house
work I would have to sit up and rest
every little while. I was losing liosh
and strength every day. And. oh,
how miserable I was!
"After I had taken the Tanlac
treatment I did not have a bil more
trouble with my stomach-not even
indigestion. I could eat anything. I
slept line and always felt good. ? did
not tire out after my work, and f
could even do my washing;. With
good digestion and fine sleet) I began
to build up rig|U away and was not
surprised when I bogan to gain in
weight. Finally I gained lr? pounds.
