Relates How "Dreco" Restored
Her. Has No More Gas or Sour
Stomach. Is Stronger and
Sleeps We.
"Twenty-five per cent of our educated
people die from Ignorance" Is the recent
Statement of a noted scientist. "Al
though paradoxical, the truth of this
statement is significant, especially with
respect to those who live in the cities."
Washington may he taken as an apt
illustration that will apply to American
cities in general, where there is a
constant bustle and strife to earn a liv
ing, to make a fortune, or excel in any
nme of endeavor. The grind whether of
physical labor, mental toil, or the ex
actions of society. tells upon the nerves
of the human structure. The pace is
too fast and far astray from the sim-.
pie plan of nature. -After a wide search
Dreco was discovered, which is a com
bination of plants, from the juices of
which Is extracted a tonic which has
proven to be the greatest of all known
remedies for the stomach, liver, kidneys
and blood. This is now widely known
on account of Its reviving and recon
structing powers, which is so noticeable
that the user finds himself infused with
new lfe and enefgy. as if -by magic.
Daily. Dreco is obtaining converts in
Washington, which is attested by the
signed statements of people who have
given it a fair trial. For instance the
testimonial of Mrs. Mary Oman of 39
P street. Georgetown. a well known and
popular lady, stated, "For a long tlpne
I have suffered with gas forrming in mny
stomach, belching and sourness, I was
losing my strength and could not sleep
well, I suffered a great deal and dreaded
to sit do~n to the table. Three bottles
of Dreco have made a different persos

and the gas does not bother me an.y
inure. I heartily receanusend Dreec."

an amendment to the bill providing mil
tary Instruction in schools and colleges
E-xplaining his bill. Senator Gore -id:
"There are now 14.000 high schools in
the United States with an attendance
of 800000 boys. My proposal Is that
whenever any high school has an en
rollment of more than 50 boys above 14,
years of age and has as a member 'f
its faculty an Instructor qualified in the
judgment of the Secretary of %ar I,
impart military instruction and training.
tige general government shall pay not
exceeding two-fths of the salary of
such military instructor.
''This is. of course, to be done with I
the consent of the State and the school I
hoard involved, under rules and regula
tions to be prescribed by the Secretary
of War. Under this plan 10.0 or more
boys trained to arms would issue from
these schools annually. They would be
easIly converted into soldiers. At the
same time they would be immersed in
tie civil population and would nnt be af
fected or infected with the spirit of mili
tarism. They would not become irnpress
ed with the military caste. They would
