Cairo. Oct. - -Darfur. a territory
extending 166.10 square miles, has
been conrquered Iy an aeroplane. The
once troublesim.e ratives are now pa-,
cific. having n n an "engine of de-'
struction" s9aring high above the
haze, preparing to swoop down and.
carry off refractory men.
Only a short time has elapsed since
the overthrow of the revolting suzerin
of Darfur. All Dinar, by Anglo-Egyp
tian troops, yet a traveler who was,
in that country at that time would
see in it no resemblance to the Darfur
of today.
The whole province has reen thor
oughly organized and brought under
a British administration.
All Dinar seized the occasion of the
outbreak of the war between Great
Britain and Turkey to renounce his
allegiance to the Souden government
and subsequently declared his adhe
sion to the enemy.
Finally, at the instigation of enemy:
agents, he made preparations for of-1
fensive action against the loyal
tibeamen. He publicly declared a:
religious war, and announced his in-I
tention of invading Soudan territory1
after the rains.
The Sultan's force, which was esti
wasted at 3.500 rifles, comprising the
Sower of his army, had 1,200 casual
ties and the majority of the leaders
were killed or wounded. The British'
casualties were five killed and twenty
two wounded. All Dinar himself fled
to Jebel Marra, accompanied by some
1.500 followers. On the approach of
am aeroplane, however. -a stamupede
ws caused by the explosion of bombs:
and the majority of the Sultan's escort
seattered and later surrendered.

Serious Operation Failed to Help.
Her Case Pronounced Tuberculosis.
Was Almost a Living Skeleton.
Says She Is Now Strong
and Well.
Several years ago I lost my health
and have been sick ever since.' said
Mrs. H'Irst. wife of C. T. Hurst, who,
for a long t me has been a member
of the Washington Fire Department.
I had a chronic stomach trouble of
the worst kind, and seemed to go into
a general decline. Nobody but people
who have had this awful trouble know
how I have suffered.
"I tried doctors. I tried mdilcine.
and I triod everything, tut no.thing
seormed to help me a particle I tried
dieting and lived on liquid foods,. raw
eggs, and things like that till I nearly
starved, but even that failed to relieve
my trouble.
"I loIt all the strength I had and
was a nervous wreck. I never knew
what It was to get a good night's
sleep. and was nervous. feverish, and
restless most of the time. I also suf
fered dreadfully from constipation
and biliousness and was never free
from pain, day or night.
"I was taken to a hospital and oper
Ved on, anl when I left the hospital
I was nothing more than a living skel
eton, and only weighed 127 pounds.
That is the truth and every one who
knows me will tell you tt is a fact.
The operation didn't do me any good
as far as restoring my health was con
cerned. If anything I got worse and
it looked as if I were going to die.
"Finally I was told my trouble was
tuberculosis and I had better stay out
In the open air as much as possible,
as nothing else could t'e done for me.
"About that time I began to hear s,
much talk about the new medicine,
Dreco. and read a great deal in the
papers about what people had to say
about it. Something just seemed to
tell me it was what I needed, although
the doctor didn't think so. but I told
him I was going to try It any way,
Is they had already said they couldn't
,o any more for me.
"The first bottle didn't do much good
as far as I could tell, but that didn't
udishearten me. for I knew it would
take tIme in my case, so I got the
second bottle and began Improving
right away.
"After this I commenced eating and
my appetIte improved every day. By
the time I had taken three bottles I
was able to eat whatever I liked, and
gained flesh and strength right along.
My nerves got settled and I could
dleep a whole night through. The oth
er day I actually weighed 149 pounds.
Yes, sir; I went from 137 to 149
pounds. that's what Dreco did for me.
'My constipation is a thing of~ the
past. and I never h''ave a headache nor
reel dIzzy any more. I feel so much
better and stronger that I am doing
all my house work. Honestly this
Dreco beats anything I ever saw in my
life, and I wouldn't give one bottle of
it for all the other medIcine in Wash
' Dreco Is now sold and recommended
by all the O'Donnell Drug Stores,
