American Military Officials Scout Report That Hin denburg Is Menace. Military experts here admit Hinden burg still has C ^ men behind him I and that if they had arms they would, bo a sorious menace but thev describe | his millions as "an army on paper." A mort- real menace, they say, in that the Bolshevist military are look- . ing to Germany as their best card to produce trouble in Europe, but that! Gen. Foeh's plan of keeping allied ! armies in Russia, and especially a! large Japanese force in Siberia, will prevent as long as that arrangement stands, any combination of Germany j and any considerable part of old Itus- j sia. The opinion of staff officers is that j the real strength of Hindenburg con-I sists of the SOO.OOO troops which were! ready to go over the top at the time : of signing the armistice. These forces.! however, abandoned their artillery and vast stores of ammunition and air craft; and Germany has since sur rendered a larg^ part of her railway i connections, locomotives and cars., Austria, officials are confident, could j not aid any coup of Hindenburg; and the Bolshevists are without military supplies. Army and navy men believe | that if the Ebert government makes ( good there will be an end of the so- | called Bolshevist menace and of mili tarism under Hindenburg. or anyone else in Germany. One official said yesterday that if there should be any attempt by any German leader to make an issue with the allies, the American army of oc cupation could walk through Germany in less than ninety days.

The disorders themselves are not so serious as the way they leave the victim. The powers of resistance are so weakened that the danger of contracting Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, Bronchitis and similar troubles is very grave. Tho loss of flesh and strength, impoverished Mood, broken down nerves, disturbed-digestion, make one an easy victim. Kidney and bladder complications of a more or less serious nature arc not uncommon in tlic pathway of the epidemic. It i> during the so-called period of recovery that the sufferer is really in the most serious danger and it is the time when PE-RU-NA is of the greatest value. PE-RU-NA hastens the recovery and protects one against the many fatal and dreaded diseases. You cannot afford to take chances now. When you arc trying to escape from the clutches of this terribly enervating and health destroying disease is perhaps the most critical period of your life. Right now is to be decided whether you are going to enjoy a return of natural, normal health or become a chronic, perhaps bed ridden sufferer from some one of the many painful and finally fatal maladies which follow an attack of Spanish Influenza and Grip. PE-RU-NA will regulate the digestion, tone up the nerves, purify the blood, assist elimination and build up the bod v. It will replace the disturbing lasi-i tude and weakness with a vim and vigor so good to feci. If further evidence of the groat curative value of J l'R-RI"-XA is neoded. it may bo found in tho daily ex perience ??f tho thousands of users. Miss Rose l-'arr of! Kvansvillo. Ind.. writes: "fMO-RI'-NA is lino for In fluenza and Grip." Mary Mint. Argyle. Wis., says: j "PK-RT"-XA has boon my host friend for over twenty yoars." George Clark. Xcwark. X. writes: "I'K-Rl*-XA is a good medicine for Colds, Grip and Influenza." PE-RU-NA is for Catarrh and Catarrhal conditions and has been I in the American home for forty-six years. This alone is a guarantee j of its merits and value at this present crisis. Tablet or Liquid. Sold Everywhere.
