OTHER OF FIRST
AMERICAN SOLDIER
KILLED IN FRANCE
Mrs. Alice Gresham Dodd,
First War Mother Of The
Nation Gives Entire Credit
For Recovery Of Her
Health To The Well
Known Medicine, Tanlac.
The following remarkable endorse
ment of Tanlac was given recently by
Mrs. Alice Gresham Dodd, at the
Gresham Memorial Home, Gavin
Park, Evansvillc, Ind., which home
"was presented to her by the patriotic
people of Indiana, as evidence of their
appreciation of the services rendered
to his country by her son. Corporal
James B. Gresham. the first American
soldier killed in France. Kxpressions
of sympathy were received by Mrs.
Iodd from all parts of the United
States, and the newspapers of the
country carried the story of the first
'war mother."
" The shock of her son's death re
sulted Jn the serious breakdown of
Mrs. Dodd's health, but everyone will
learn with interest and pleasure that
she is now in splendid health again.
"When seen at her home recently she
made the following statement, giving
the entire credit for her recovery to
the well-known medicine, Tanlac.
"After my dear boy's death, I had
a general breakdown in health," said
Mrs. Dodd. "At first It was Just indi
gestion. My food used to upset me
and I had to diet myself very care
fully, which wasn't much hardship as
I lost all desire to eat. Then I had
en attack of rheumatism, with severe
pains in my shoulders, back and arms.
Sometimes I used to suffer a great
deal, and my joints would get all
swollen up and stiff. I was able to do
very little about the house, and at
times couldn't even cook a meal. I
got very nervous and restless, and at
night would lay awake for hours, and
lost many a night's sleep as a conse
quence. "A friend of mine had received a
rreat deal of help from Tanlac. and
It was she who advised me to try it.
I am so glad I did for it proved the
MRS. ALICE GRESHAM DODD,
of Gavin Park, Evansville, Ind.
best medicine I have ever taken. It
soon save me a good appetite and
seemed to settle my stomach so that
I was no longer troubled with indi
gestion. I don't know what it. is to
have rheumatic pains now, the swell
ing: and stiffness has all gone out of
my joints and I am able to do the
work of the house with the greatest
ease. My nerves are now steady and
strong:, I sleep fine at night, and I
feel better In health than ever before
in my life. I shall always be grate
ful for what Tanlac has done for me,
and shall recommend it every chance
I get."

Your child is quick to observe disturbances in your mental attitude or
physical condition. And when he asks: "What's the matter, DaddyT"
there's a tone cf solemn anxiety in his little voice. The depression
tamped upon you reflects intensely upon him because of his profound solic
itude. He at once drops his playthings and rushes to your side, bat his
happy smile has disappeared and his buoyant spirits are gone replaced
by a countenance of worry and a bearing of hopelessness.

BT HAROLD D. JACOBS.
New York, May 14. Chairmanship
of the resolutions committee at the
Republican national convention grows
in importance as it becomes increas
ingly apparent that the League of Na
tions will be one of the big issues of
the presidential election.
Senator Hiram Johnson, foremost
figure in the progressive wing, nat
urally -wants the party to go on rec
ord as completely opposed to the
league pact. All of his prominent
rivals have declared in favor of the
league with reservations.
Concede to "Bitter Binders."
Many Republican leaders, it is un
derstood, are determined that the in
ternational section of the party plat
form shall contain a plank endorsing
the pact with the Lodge reservations.
To insure the least possible opposi
tion to this from the "bitter enders"
led by Johnson, these leaders are said
to be ready to recede from their pres
ent attitude regarding the permanent
chairmanship of the convention and
permit Johnson and his followers to
pick the man for his position. ' In re
turn, it is alleged, they will ask John
son to offer no opposition to their
choice for chairman of the resolutions
committee, which will draft the plat
form.
Would Bind Johnson.
Such an arrangement, according to
Dolitical observers, would while pos
sibly improving Johnson's chances of
obtaining the nomination, bind him to
a complete stand on the League of
Nations at variance with his past ana
present attitude In the interest of
party harmony. In such circum
stances, it is pointed out, if Johnson
became the Republican candidate he
would be compelled to make his cam
paign along what these party leaders
regard as more popular lines.
Of the Democratic aspirants. Attor
ney General Palmer is unreservedly
committed to the administration's for
eign policies. The position of William
G. McAdoo cannot be definitely deter
mined, but those close to him believe
he would accept the verdict of the
Democratic platform committee and
make his campaign accordingly.
