U. S. CITY IN FRANCE
Americans Build Town All for
It Will Be the Main Base for Our
Army and Will Cost Millions
.Washington.An American city Is
fearing itself on French soil. It will
be populated entirely by Americans

will be American. It will be a little
bit of New York or Kankakee or

It will be the main base of the Amer

This great city will be well removed
from the front, in a locality already
selected. It is all mapped out what
is to be done. The locution is a mili
tary secret, so are the plans. All that
may be told is what will be thtre

and engineers will direct the work.
The place will be as typically Amer

RISK LIVES AT FRONT
When the shortage of men became
acute in England thousands of Brit
ish women volunteered to drive ambu
lances on the western front to permit
the men in the service to join the
flighting forces. They have risked
their lives daily in this dangerous
work of succoring the wounded within
the range of the German guns. Many
have been killed by bursting shells,
and many more hove been decorated
for bravery under fire. They have
very often gone to the extreme front
battle lines to remove badly wounded
Tommies. American women are now
nobly offering themselves for this hu
mane but very dangerous work. Fol
lowing the example of their British
sisters, several are already driving am
bulances on various battle fronts.
TEUTONS CLAIM "CITY DAZER"

To Live Long!
A recipe given by a famous physician
for long life was: "Keep the kidneys in
good order! -Try to eliminate thru the
akin and intestines the poisons that other
wise clog the kidneys. Avoid eating meat
88 much as possible avoid too much salt,
alcohol, tea. Try a milk and vegetable
diet. Drink plenty of water, and exercise
BO you sweatthe skin helps to eliminate
the toxic poisons and uric acid."
For those past mjddle, life, for those
easily recognized symptoms oi inflamma
tion, as Backache, scalding "water," or
if uric acid in the blood has caused rheu
matism, "rusty" joints, stiffness, get
Anuric at the drug store. This is a
wonderful eliminator of uric acid and was
liscovered by Dr. Pierce of Invalids'
Hotel, Buffalo, N. Y. If your druggist
does not keep it send 10 cents to Dr.
Pierce for trial package and you will find
that it is thirty-seven times more potent
flmm lithia and that it dissolves uric acid
as-hot water does sugar.
