"I'll praise Tanlac the longest day I

raid Mrs. B. W. Smith, of 3113 Bur
dett street, Omaha, Neb., recently,
when the special Tanlac representa
tive, who had heard of her remarkable
recovery, called to ascertain the facts.
"Eight years ago," continued Mrs.
Smith. "I began suffering from stom
ach trouble, loss of appetite and nerv
ousness. My head ached so at times
it felt like tt would Jump from my
shoulders. Then acute rheumatism
jrot hold of me, and pained me so 1
could not sleep. My feet, knee joints
and elbows would swell terribly ana
the pain was almost unbearable. Be
fore I took Tanlac I had not been up
and about, nor able to go down town
for three long years, and was In- bed
for ten months perfectly helpless. I
. was under treatment every day for
three months, and I tried everything
until the bills got so big I dreaded to
think of them, but I never got able to
be cut of bed but very little.
"I suffered until I lost thirty-five
pounds, but I have gotten back every
ounce of 1. sine- I began taking Tan
lac. Pretty soon after I started on it
my appetite came back, and I got so
I could eat anything. My nerves got
stronger, and my pain commenced to
pet less After the second bottle I
felt much stronger, and it wasn't long
before I could get about the house
and do my work. I haven't a pain of
any kind now, and my sleep Is as
sound and restful as a baby. I am
full .of life and energy and feel fully
atle to go down town when I please,
'.as I can walk and stay on my feet all
day. in fact I can do as much work
ay Lever could In my life, if not more,
nnd I Just feel so happy over what
Tanlac has done for me that I want
everybody to know about it. I have
told lots of people about it already
and know many who are taking it on
Account of what it has done for me."

The total cost qf the Revolution, not
including the expenditures of the indi

about 180,000.000, a good deal less than
one day's cost of the present war. The
sum is truly insignificant as compared
with the J24. 000, 000, 000 which will be

(Copyright. 1918. by tbe United Press.)
With the American Airmen in
France, July 10 (by mall). "How do
you ieel up there to the air when
you're jockeying with a Hun for a
chance to bring him down before he
gets you?" was the question put to
Eddie Rickenbacker, American ace
and former automobile racer.
Rickenbacker reflected a moment
and then said: "You don't feel very
much, because you are too busy
watching the Helnie'ai machine. But
you think of it as a machine and not
as a man. I never think of 'the man
in the boche plane, but regard a fight
as- sport, in which we both - take
chances and if he is better than I and
uses better judgment he will get xrte,
but if 1 am the better sportsman. I'll
get him first. .
"Fighting in the air. In the classy
work at any rate, is more a question
of keen thinking and good Judgment
than anything else. You first try to
out. guess your opponent and then try
to get. position. on him. Attacking is a
question of knowing when to pique on
him and when not to.. , . '
Must Keep Xcrve.
"Of course, a good flyer has to have
his nerve with him and we all fear the
mistake of not attacking when we
should, more than we fear being shot
down. A mistake like-4hat, of allow
ing your nerve to fail you Just once,
would weaken a man and we know it.
However, we also know we cannot be
foolhardy and reckless. . Doug? Camp
bell, our all-Amerfcan ace, has worked
out some unusual tactics regarding
fighting boches which have succeeded
"He is of a studious tu n of mind
and figures out what the methodical
German mind would expect him to do
at a certain time or in a certain situa
tion., Then Doug does just the oppo
Surprises the Boches. '
"For- example he has piqued on
boches in certain positions which wera
thought to mean sure death. But he
did it suddenly and unexpectedly and
before the German mind had con
ceived of the situation, Doug had let
him have it and dived out of position
again. He's landed several boches
"You have to make some quick de
cisions np in the blue sky sometimes
and they're pretty important for you,
too. But that Is the important part
of the game and a fascinating part. It
has been one of the phases where the
American flyers have been most suc
cessful. Their judgment has been
made in a lightnTng: way. But moat of
the beys are well educated then- an3
Have to Keep Your Eyes Open.
"After you fly awhile you get a
sense of feeling t,iat is new. You
sort of feel a boche. " ound and feel
the direction, too, since it is hard to
see him. Of course you are always
looking around, beccuse a couple of
minutes without care- would enable a
German to drop on you unexpectedly
and it I .ight mean flowers.
"Most people who liave - never
flown Imagine running the plane is
a question of concentrated attenion
on the mechanics of it. That is not
so. Once you get np, you can fly
along for a long time, without touch
ing a lever' and without bothering
about the motor. You don't need to
stir because- there is nothing to hit
and your only concern is not getting
too far into German. Since there are
no ruts in the air l or trees to hit and
since the air is a big space, your di
rection makes little difference. You
can't bump into anything.
"The thing you watch most Is the
huge space all around you apd you
keep your eyes open for more planes.
Once you see one, you immediately
work for position until you learn
whether It is a friend or boche. Then
you act accordingly and It never takrs
long to makevup your mind what to do.
Clouds Are Dangerous.
'Clouds are rsky things. .They
look brightest and fleecy when you are
away from them. When you dive Into
them you feel no sensation and hit
nothing. Everything seems like a fog.
If they are large they are dangerous,
for you lose your ssnse of direction
among them. Sense of direction 's
r-ore important than a compass,
which often doesn't work when you
are diving aro ind. Clouds can also
hide boches." .

i United States 'ow On Same
.'I , t Basis as Britain.
Each Ally Holds Definite Sector
of Long Battle Line.
AMER1CANSARE0N THE EAST?
American Front Believed to Be
St. Mihiel to Switzerland.
Some Believe Thar. Sector Is
Road to Berlin.
Washington, Aug. 14. The an
nouncement that the First American
field army has been created is regard
ed at the war department as having
deep significance, mainly because it
places the American army in France
on the same footing as French or
British forces there. :
- Formation of the army is taken here
to mean tha the Americanlsation of
a definite portion of the front has
been completed. Supply lines, rail
ways, bases, storage racillties, de
barkation ports an'" the like, created
and operated by Americans, stand be
hind the First my.
Between St. Mlhicl and Switzerland.
The only statement of the location
of "this American front given is that it
is "south of the Marne." Presumably
this means a part of the long line from
ft. Mihiel to the Swiss border, whera
American troops have been put in at
Intervals in the last few months. : ,
. . Probably 1,250.000' Men. -
The extent of that fronts ha$. not
been disclosed, nor has the definite
strength of the army been given. The
advices Indicate thet it comprise,
however, five full corps, approximate
ly 1 Yt million men.
The effect of the taking over of the
line Is to make a definite beginning
at apportioning the long front.
The British hold the left flank, aid
ed by the Belgians, from the North
sea. to the Juncture of the British
Fourth army and the French First
army in Picardy. and stand between
the enemy and the channel ports.
. French Hold :eardy to Verdun.
' The French armies presumably are
being concentrated wholly between the
Picardy Juncture with the British and
the' American left- beyond Verdun.
They block the roads te Paris." '
To the Americans will fall the rer
malnder of the front to the Swiss bor
der when the other American armies
shall have been formed. The First
Army undoubtedly now holds the bulk
of that line, with such French help as
is necessary. The whole line prob
ably Is under General Pershing's gen
' Iiiggett May Command.
As direct commander'of the army Ira
the field. General Pershing will be well
situated to weigh the qualities of the
men he has assigned temporarily as
corps commanders. From those five of
ficers he probably will select the com
mander of the: First -Army later, and
opinion "here leans towards' Maji Gen
Hunter Liggett, now commanding the
First Corps on the Vesle front, as his
choice. It is expected that General Per
shing will soon name his permanent
corps commanders, the appointment
carrying with it the rank of lieutenant
General Liggett's corps probably Is
regarded as the mobile reserve of the
FirstArmy and as such is being em
ployed on the French front. Should
aggressive operations be undertaken
on the American front, however, this
corps proba' ly woold be used there,
supplemented by French and possibly
British mobile reserves sent by Gen
eral Foch. In that case, while Gener
al Foch would map out the objects-of
the action in a broad way. General
Pershing would command the Joint
Yanks On Road to Berlin.
This recalls the fact that the Ameri
can sector Includes what always has
been considered the logical road to
Berlin for Fjnch advances, ft was
across lines now held by Americans
that the French struck In 1914, before
the plunge of the German army

FEWTSTOGK MALADIES ;
Kansas Has Not Suffered Much This
, Year, Commissioner McrcerSays.
Some Kansas- llfcstoel-men - are
having trouble because of - 'pasture
and water "shortages, but they have
one condition in. their favor. The
health condition of livestock in Kan
sas never was better, according to J.
H. Mercer, state livestock commission
er. Furthermore, Mr. Mercer says,
there is not a general stock water
shortage thruout the state: that the
water shortage is of less concern to
the cattlemen now than the seared
"The season has been as a whole
free from livestock maladies,', stated
Mr. Mercer. - "While J. get reports
frequently - of local sickness nmong
herds, even these are less frequent
than customary In the summer
months, and there has not been any
thing akin to the epidemic, even a lo
cal epidemic, in the state this season.
"Sj successful has been the serum
produced by the State Agricultural
college to combat blackleg, which in
years past has been about the worst
enemy of stockraisers, that the dis
ease Is practically unknown on the
Kansas farms today. The calves ace
inoculated and thus are rendered im
mune from the disease. The same
way with hog cholera. It used to be
anticipated that hog cholera would
sweep away thousands of animals every
year. There has been no hog cholera
worth mentioning in the state this
year. The anti-cholera vaccine tdoes
"The one trouble which is causing
the stock raisers more grief than any
other malady is contagious abortion.
This disease has baffled veterinarians'
science thus far. mainly because it is
almost impossible to detect its pres
ence In a cow. It results in the loss
of the calf thru premature birth and
.once it gets into a herd of cows it is
bound to do a lot of damage. It is
impossible, also, to quarantine against
the disease for the same reason that
it is not marked,- by any exterior symp

Naval Training station was officially
opened this week. More than forty
men were on the main drill field, punt
