IS ASTONISHED Mrs. Jackson Says Tanlac Is Wonderful. She Had Almost Given Up Hope of Getting Well. It Is really astonishing how Tanlac entirely relieved me of my troubles In so short a time." declared Mrs. E. A. Jackson, 1810 Kansas avenue. Kan sas City, Mo., while -elllng of her ex perience with the medicine. "About two years ago I had a nervous breakdown, and was left in an extremely run-down, weakened condi tion. My nerves were in such bad shape the least little noise almost drove me distracted and it was utterly impossible for me to get a good night's sleep. My appetite was also very poor and even the little I did manage to eat caused gas to form on my stomach, which pressed againFt my heart until it palpitated dreadfully. I also suf fered from severe headaches and often became so dizzy I could hardly stand up. I felt tiled t-nd worn out all the time and was so weak I could barely et around, doing my housework only by the greatest effort. I had tried any number of different medicmes. but as nothing hel, d mr. t became Very inuch discouraged and had just about Riven up all hope of ever sttinc r better. "Seeing where Tanlac had ben; ..trd so manv people right here in Kansas City, who described their condition as being similar to mine. I decided t- try it myself, and had not taken more than half a bottle when I was feeling so much better I vui actually sur prised. As I continued taking It I con tinued to improve until now my nerves are as steady as can be. and I can sleep like a child all night long. I have a splendid appetite and every thing I eat agrees with me perfectly, for 1 never have a sign of indigestion any more. The headaches and dizzy apells have stopped entirely, and. In fact, I feel just like a new woman. I have also gained several pounds In weight and am so much stronger I can do my housework with the greatest ease. I think Tanlac is a wonderful medicine, and I just can't say too much for it." Tanlac is sold in Topeka by Tully McFarland Drug Co., 835 Kansas Ave., and 729 Kansas- Ave. Adv. INVENTIVE GENIUS . MAKES CALOMEL DELIGHTFUL Calomel, the Most Valuable of Drugs, Now Purified From Its Nausea and Danger "Calo tabs" the New Name. The medicinal virtues of calomel are In no way connected wUh Its .nauseat ing and dangerous qualities, as is proven by the fact that the new calo mel tablet, called Calotabs, is free from objectionable effects yet retains nil of the liver-cleans'nff and system purlfying qualities of the old-style cfltomel. I "or biliousness, headaches, constipation and indigestion. and v herever calomel is essential, the new de-nauseatrd calomel tablet is a prac tical. y perfect laxative. To inrpire public confidence in this new discovery the manufacturers have authorized druggists everywhere tore fund the price if the customer is not J'perfctly delighted" with Calotabs. iSold only in original packages, sealed. J'rice thirty-five cents. One tablet at bedtime, with a swallow of water. No taste, no nausea, no griping, no salts. You wake up in the morning with a clean liver, feeling fine, and a hearty appetite for breakfast. Kat what you please. no danger. (Adv.) ESCAPED All OPERATION Br Taking; Lydia E. Pinkham' Vegetable Compound. Many Such Cae. Cairo. 111. "Pome time ago I got eg bad with female trouble that I though! I would have to b operated on. I had a bad displacement. My right aide would pain me and I wii so nervous I colli not hold a glass of water. Many time I would have to atop my work and ait down or I would fall on the floor in a faint. I consulted neveral doctors and very one told me the same but I kept fighting to keep from having the opera tion. I had read so many times of Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound and it helped my sister so I began taking it. I have never felt better than I have ainee then and I keep house and am abla to do al my work. The Vegetable Com pound is certainly one grand medicine." Mrs. J. R. Matthews, 3311 Sycamore Street, Cairo. 111. Of course there are many serious eases that only a surgical operation will re lieve. We freely acknowledge this, but the above letterand many others like it, amply prove that many 'operations are - recommended when medicine in many eases is all that is needed. If you want special advice write to Lydia E. Pinkhara Medicine Co. (confi dential), Lynn, Mass. 1 L. TWO BISHOPS OH PROGRAM Manual Training; Normal Graduates Its ) largest Class This Tear.

The local wholesale house made the following statement: "The average profit made on sugar was . The sugar of the Middleton Quinlan company is being pro-rated In order to bring the average within the law. Sugar bought at a high price is sold to the retailer at below cost, in order to comply with the law. "A letter received by the company today from Ed Hackney, state fair price commissioner, states that this complies with the regulations. "According to invoices and sale bills presented in an investigation, the av erage price paid for sugar was $21.42. The average sale price Vas $22.45, a 3 cent allowance was made for dray age on every sack. "If we figured our'price from simi lar conditions on all goods, we would soon be bankrupt," said Mr. Middleton today. "Our overhead expense on the entire business, including sugar goods, ts figured at 6 per cent. This makes the overhead on 100 pounds of sugar $1.32.

Hackney of Wellington, fair price commissioner for Kansas, has appealed to Congressman W. A. Ayres of the Eighth district to use his influ ence in the reincorporation of the Cnited States Grain corporation. Hackney urges that unless some action is taken immediately to protect the wheat producers they may be deprived of both a living wage and a fair re turn on investments for their activi ties. " In his letter Hackney asserts that many of the patriotic wheat growers of 1918-19 harvested their crop at a loss. He further asserts that under prevailing condition surplus supplies regulate prices and fail to inspire ac tivities toward maximum yields. He asserts that the government must take over the marketing of the grain with assurance of growers, or must dele gate the power to stabilize prices to some corporation delegated by the government.
