"About two years ago," continued Mrs. Bruce, "I had an attack of acute indigestion that wtys so severe I actual ly lost consciousness, and ever since then I have had a great deal of trou ble with my stomach. My appetite was poor, and even when I did manage to eat a. little something it caused me to bloat up so badly with gas I could hardly breathe, my heart palpitated dreadfully, and t would have tense pains in. the pit of my stomach. I suffered terribly with headaches, and often became so dizzy I had to lie down to keep from falling. 1 was also extremely nervous, and it was Impossible for me to got a good night's Sleep. There was a "constant pain in my left side, and finally I became so run-down and weak I had been un able to do my housework for at least a year before I began taking Tanlac. 'I tried many different treatments and medicines for my troubles, but could never find anything ihat gave me more than a iittlp temporary rp lief -unt'l I got hold cf Tanlac. Well, sir, it seeemd to suit my case exactly. and 1 commenced improving almost at once. My 'stomach is now in good condition, I have a splendid appetite, can eiit Just anything I want and everything agrees with me perfectly. I never have a sign of headache, do not gel dizzy any more and my nerves are In such fine shape I can sleep like a. child all night long. That awful pain has gone out of my side entirely, and I have regained my strength so that altho X am seventy years of age, I can do my housework with ease. I think Tanlac is a grand medicine, and I take delight in recommending it to others." Tanlac is sold In Topeka by Tully McFerland Drug Co.. 835 Kansas Ave., and 7 -J Kansas Ave. Adv.

SUNDAY FOLU INSTEAD Capital Post o. 1 Tlans Big 'Membership Drite Legion Members Indorse Five Way Bonus Bill. As long as there is one living mem-, ber of the Grand Army of the Re public in Topeka, the American Legion will refrain from adopting Decoraion day as the day on which to honor their dead of the late war. This was the sentiment expressed at the meeting of Capitol Post No. 1 last night. The le gionnaires, however, pledged them selves to assist the O. A. H. in every possible way the latter may suggest on each Decoration day in the mean time. The Sunday following Decoration day will be the annual memorial day for the Topeka legion.' The plan now under consideration by a Epecial com mittee of the legion post Us to perpet uate the program ceremony given last year by the overseas men on the state house grounds. The committee is composed of Chaplain J. A. McAfee, Capt. V. P. MacLean. Leslie Ed monds and A. B. Nelson. An Klauorate Program. Last year, before the local post was well organized, the memorial cere mony was instituted by a group of overseas nien. With appropriate cere mony, a huge service flag bearing stars for every Shawnee county sol dier and sailor and gold stars for each man who died in the service was hung on the facade of the state house. The flag was the gift of the Topeka Ma sonic bodies to the legion. At the start of the services, another flag, the gift of the Military Sisterhood, was brought up and placed in front of the large service flag and the school children .filed before it, dropping flowers at its base. Appropriate mu sic was played by Marshall's band. Both flags are still in the posses sion of the overseas men and, accord ing to Captain MacLean who led in the promotion of the plan last year, this year's ceremony will be made a littie more elaborate by a ceremony during wnich the two banners will be formally given ever to the custody of the Topeka post, to be used for the lesion memorial ceremony in all fu ture years. Plan Membership Drive. The post last night made plans for a membership campaign in which ev ery man in the county who saw service during the late war will be asked to join the post. Roy Payne was made chairman of the committee in charge of the campaign and the others named as his assistants were: Hugh Mac Farland, J. D. M. Hamilton, Glenn Logan, Edgar Morehouse and Leslie Edmonds. The final report of the legion car nival last week was laid before the post. According to the adjutant, S5H6.07 was cleared on it. This sum, with other funds in the treasury, was at once UjSed to clear the post of all indebtedness. Endorse Five-Way Bonus. That there is no doubt of the stand taken by the local service men on the bonus bill was expressed in the tele gram -which!, by vote of the post, was sent by wire to the Kansas delegation in the senate and house of represen tatives at Washington. The message follows: "Unanimous action of Capitol Post No. 1, American Legion, indorsing the five-way compensation bill is reported to you by direction of the members. You are urged strongly to aid in favor able and immediate consideration of this, bill.
