MRS. COURSEN Was Helpless in Bed Rheumatism. From Says Tanlac Has Completely Rid Her of It, I was down in bed almost helpless from rheumatism when I started tak ing Tanjac but now I haven't an ache or pain of any kind and am enjoying j as rood health as I ever did in my i life was the truly remarkable state ment mad recently by Mrs. P3ula t'oursen of 216 West Hidepark street, St, Joseph, Mo., In a conversation with a Tanlac representative. "It seems almost too good to b true," she continued. "That I am at last free from rheumatism and have thrown away my crutches. And be sides, I have actually gained twenty eight pounds in weight in two months time and I Just can't begin to tell you what a blessing Tanlac has been to me. "My trouble started about two years ago and since then I have certainly had to bear my share of pain and suffering- My back hurt continually and when I would bend over I was simply1 in aennv. Alv Ipsts rminprl me awfullv I and finally I got so bad off I was un- J them the use of the $ able to walk with out the aid of crutches. My stomach became badly disordered, I lost my appetite and couldn't digest a thing sea rely. Natur ally I began to fall off in weight, and T became extremely weak and nervous. To make a long story short I was a perfect wreck and finally had to give up entirely and take to my bed. I suf fered nearly all the time, was hardly able to move and actually had to be turned over in bed in a sheet- "I had about lost faith in all medi cines for it seemed the more I took the worse I got, but I am certainly thankful that I gave Tanlac a trial. The very first bottle helped me for the pains began to let up and I felt easier and better in every way. By the time I had finished my third bottle I had no more use for my crutches for I was able to walk without them and with out a. pain of any kind. And now I believe the rheumatism has all com pletely left mo for I can't detect a' sign of it and I am feeling as well and strong as I ever did in my life. I have a splendid appetite and my big gain in weight shows how well my food is agreeing with me. I am not the least bit nervous and I sleep fine every night. I am now doing my house-work and I will never get thru praising Tanlac for It has helped me out of bed and put me on my feet in perfect health " Tanlac is sold In Topeka by Tully McFariand Drug Co., 835 Kansas Ave., and 729- Kansas Ave. Adv.

The Shawnee county commissioners today announced that the new county home north of the city would be com pleted July 1 and the official opening would be held July 4. The completion of this building will mark the end of lengthy court litiga tion intermingled with much bitter feeling between the Topeka Rotary club and the county commissioners. Tyo years ago members of the To peka Rotary club assisted by the coun ty commissioners began a campaign for a special election to vote $50,000 in bonds for the erection of a hospital for the poor. As to whether the original plan was for a county home combined with a hospital is still the subject of dispute. The bonds were voted. The county commissioner ordered plans and spe cifications for a county home and hos pital to be erected on the county farm. Suddenly, certain members of the To peka Rotary club began criticising the action, claiming that the bonds were voted for the purpose of erecting county hospital and that a county home should be a separate institution. The case went to the supreme court, where an injunction was issued against the county commissioners denying 0.000 in the building of a county home, The county commissioners, however, con tinued with their work on the home independent of the $50,000 bond issue, manipulating funds in such a manner that sufficient cash was obtained to erect a county home, much similar to the original plans and specifications for the combined home and hospital At the same time the commissioners asked for plans and specifications for a county hospital exclusively as per demand of the Rotary club. The com missioners announced today that the plans and specifications of the hos pital were ready. '"Now," said a member of the board of commissioners, today, "we must rub Aladdin's lamp or something and buy lots near the city cheap and build a 150.000 building which under the pre vailing high prices of material and labor should cost double that amount. Such a structure would have been possible two years ago, but at the present time a miracle or somethii g must happen to give the people who demanded a separate county hospital what they wanted at the time ma terials and labor wr--e cheaper and $50,000 would fill the order."

The Moroccan Veil Has Been Brought Into Common I'sage for Motoring After Jt Was launched bv French Women Who Made the London to Paris Trip In the Air. It did'not need Mrs. Edith Wharton to write her new book on Morocco and the' French province to bring the clothes of that country into the lime light. Poiret had done it. No doubt Mrs. Wharton's 'vivid de scription of Morocco did much to im press upon our minds the whole col orful picture of that country where France has done so much and ruled so ably. It is said that the moving pic ture men are already in those cities with their camera, their scenery, and their enthusiasm, and this sounds as tho we were to have a swirl of Afri can pictures, of the women of Moroc co, their costumes, the queer streets and the brilliant houses. I, j Well, it is only one more impression of the east. We dance to the tunes of Egypt and Africa, we go to see trag edies laid in Stamboul. we read avia tors' stories of the country over which they flew and into which they fell, we see gowns that have been copied from those worn in African towns. The world has gone mad over the east. Certainly, the source of all this fren zied enthusiasm was the war. Possibly we will begin to live on our house-tops thru the hottest months of our climate if the furore continues. The Veil of Morocco. It may have taken the genius of Poiret to show us how well jwe could look in the ancient fashions that have been indulged in for centuries by wo men whose lives do not touch ours at any point. But all the fashions of the world that we modei-ns wear quite well have been garnered from strange sources and none of them have been worn by women who indulge in our activities or who have our point of view. We are really the heirs of all the ages. the dust from the neck and the shoul ders, as well as the face, and If oie must protect the eyes there is a closed veil put on an elastic and worn directly over the face like a mask. Choose Gray Blue. The Fiench blue or gray, as you like to call it, is a delightful color for travel. It has more loveliness than brown, and while it may absorb dust and' take spots it does not show the presence of either. It would be well for women to remember this fact and choose the color for any garments which they will use for traveling this summer. The vacation days are upon us and all those who are not rushing to Europe will go on seeing America, as they have done since the motor was invented. The invasion of Canada is not a joke; it is considered -with as much solemnity as the winter-invasion of Cuba, Florida, and that Fortunate Isle called Bimini Never have the crooked streets of vjucucv; uecKonea wnn such allure nor have the reaches of the St. Lawrence river made so strong an anneal Th. great northwest, the long adventurous tnp to Banff, even the picturesque streets of Montreal have strangely de veloped a fascination for the vacation ist and for those who have motors, that the Canadians have always preached to th Americans. In the popular term Canda is now called the land of the free and the home of the brave. To it thousands will go as soon as June breaks into blossom and the clothes that are being made for thes.- trips are quite as Im portant as those that were fashioned for Florida and Havana.

It is bui't of grey blue silk, the veil of chiffon in the same dust concealing color. As an excellent example of how we adapt ourselves to whatever fashion is offered us there is the Moroccan veil worn by the young American in a fast going motor car. The veil is admirable and the cap that goes with it is exactly suitable to our present modes of trans portation. The sketch shows' this motor hat which is sponsored by Fifth avenue and will be worn by "the women who are looking eagerly forward to seeing the Pacific coast from a car when the Democratic convention calls its follow ers to California. It will be worn on those gleaming white roads that lead to Maine, to such halcyon spots. In the opinion of those who like to drink when they eat, or otherwise, as Canada offers. Tn other words, it is the motor hat and veil of tne hour. The sketch shows It in French gray Tho Tea Honr. The simple act of serving and drink ing tea is so important a matter in japan mat a good share of the ti spent in educating a vounir arirl i rf voted to that subject; and even in this country every person who takes part jh ffwwi activities 10 any extent must know a few things about the right y tu unnK ana serve tea. We have borrowed our tea-drinking uuiis irom tne ,nguen. it we had taken them from .la no doubt, take it kneeling on the floor and drink it from a handleless cup. If vi e naa got the habit from Russia - should find a samovar indispensable, ana we might take it with rum. But so completely do our tea-drinking K-ttiis come irom fingiana, that it is still in some places considered rather an English affectation for business men to provide for the servinsr of tea mi o ciock. However, at certain of- tices In some of the largest cities provision is made rr tea service everv afternoon, and the result has almost always been that more work has been dene, in spite of the fifteen-minute in icrmiKsion. ine reireshment seems to put new energy in the last hour of work. Altho 4 o'clock tea is not an estah li.rhed institution in the homes of the land, it is more and more resorted to among folk who have a late dinner, esi eciany in cool weather. One thing the hostess should re member is,that the lightest of eata Dies go wnn -tea. Arternoon tea is rerved in the living room or drawing room. or. in summer, on the porch or in the garden; in fact, wherever you and your guests happen to be seated, and there is every reason why. the service should be kept simple. Very: thin Dreaa ana outter sandwiches, s. mple, not very sweet, cake, wafers or pos smiy tnm slices or buttered toast are all thnt are in good form with tea. To attempt elaborate French pastries addition, shown foolish lavishness. In serving tea in your own home, when you are not formally receiving, it is usual for you or an older house guest to pour the tea. Nowadays one does not have tea tables provided wi'li tea dishes set up permanently in the living room or drawing room. The tea service is brought from the kitchen or pantry on a large tray and placed on a tea table, or it is wheeled in on a tea wagon. Even tho alcohol tea kettle if one is used is not usually left in the drawing room. New York Stork Market. Wall St.. New York. May 10.

He announces, also. the appointment of Jack Wilson as assistant manager, who will have charge of the house during the hot season. - . , Ordinarily the Novelty opens early in September and closes in June. The Crawfords have decided on a policy of continuing the bills thruout the season. "The old high cost of living has hit vaudeville actors this year and instead of making summer a vacation period, they are working right thru." Wilson said today. "For this reason we will be able to book some of the best acts on the road." Manager Crawford has installed a new cooling system and promises that the house will be "more comfortable than a sleeping porch" this year. One of the features of the summer bill will be a series of William J. Flynn detective stories, filmed. These stories will be pictures depicting real detective work by this widely known sleuth. Each story will be complete during the serial. Jack Wilson, the new assistant manager, is a ''Crawford made" thea ter man. He has been with the Craw ford syndicate in several cities and came to Topeka recently from Chi cago. He is a J'oung man of the variety of personality that wins thea ter patrons. He will continue as assis tant manager after the Novelty season closes and will take charge of the sea son at the Grand beginning next fall under the Crawford management. New York Cotton Mnrket.

The tractor, motor truck, stationary gas engine, and the automobile, all de pendent upon cheap, efficient motor fuel, have multiplied the efficiency of human labor, thereby increasing the acreage a man can handle. In 1919 farmers owned 3,900,465 of the 7,523,664 automotive vehicles registered in the United States.These figures give a fair idea of the use being made of motor vehicles in producing and distributing food products. There is no more prolific food pro ducing area in the world than the territory served, by the Standard Oil Company (Indiana). To serve the farmers of the Middle West is a major part of the Standard Oil Company's business. For that reason the dark, green tank wagon of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is recognized by the farmer as serving an indispensable need in promoting the increase of food products. Thousands of these tank wagons travel contin uously, on schedule, throughout the 11 states of the Middle West, served by this Company. During the busy season, when the farmer needs power most, this Company delivers gaso line even to the tractors in the field. Rain or shine, these wagons are on duty to help make certain that the nation's food supply shall be planted, harvested, an4 delivered on time. To enable the farmer of modest means to utilize automotive machinery in cultivating an increased acreage at a lower cost per acre, the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) strives -constantly to keep down the price of gasoline by increasingly efficient refining methods, and to expand and perfect its comprehensive system of distribution. .
