Many prominent men. how ever, including supreme court judges, mayors of our leading cities, prominent state and county officials, bankers, law yers, doctors, editors, leading educa tors, government officials and even min isters of the Gospel have deemed it their duty to come forward and tell the people what Taulae has done for them.

It is u well-known fact that these splendid indorsements bave been given Tanlac time and time «gain and they will continue to he given just as often as new tests of its powers are made; and it also explains why numbers of the big drug firms of the country are ordering it exclusively in carload lots.

I suffered from rheumatism, ■luggl8h liver, nausea and terrible bil ious headaches. I have taken 3 bottles Of Tanlac and I feel better than I have felt In years." Noted Texan Talks. Hon. Archie R.

I was habitually constipated and had Pains in ray shoulders and headache continually. My appetite left me al most entirely and everything I would cat hurt me. Finally I got to having awful attacks of acute indigestion, pal pitation of the heart and smothering spells. For a long tim«* I would have one or more of these spells every night and I would wake out of my restless sleep gasping for breath. "I bought a bottle of Tanlac and to my surprise and gratification I began to feel relief after the first few doses. I kept taking the medicine and now my recovery is simply the talk of Birming ham." Tanlac lias done me more good than anything I ever tried. I now wake up in the mornings feeling fine. "I'm telling all my friends about Tanlac and tint recommending it to them, regardless of their age and trouble." Dr. G. W.

Annual Flowerin' Plants By L. C. CORBETT Horticulturist, Bureau of Plant Industry U. S. Department of Agriculture COBAEA SCANDENS Cobaea scandons is a rapid-growing climbing vine which is easily propa gated from seed. The dark color and refined character of its foliage, to-j get her with its bell-shaped flowers, render it a very satisfactory vine for covering broad areas. It is a less ram- I pant grower than the moonflower, hut j furnishes quite as satisfactory a screen made up of much fitter leaves. The flowers are not conspicuous, be cause of their modest colors and be cause they tire hidden by tin* foliage. Their form, however, is pleasftig and they are open during the day. For success in the climate of Wash ington, D. C., seeds of the cobnea scan dens should be sown about March 15 in a rich compost. When the young seedlings have developed their first true leaves, they should be transferred to ihree-inoh pots or te» tomato cans and kept growing slowly until danger of frost is past. In the open a ricit border should he provided, for as soon as hot weather comes on the plants aiâfOMU y - , % (& i jT ! i j to j I j 1 by ! or ! ! ! j I I j Cobaea Scandens. grow very rapidly if ample food is at their command. A rabbit-netting trel lis or support is more satisfactory than cords or smooth wire for this plant, ns it fastens itself chiefly by tendrils rather than by twining, as does the morning-glory. LOBELIA The erinus varieties (lobelias) are charming little plants that bloom very quickly from the seed and continue gay with flowers all through the sea son. For beds, edgings, baskets, and pots there is nothing prettier; their clear colors and generous bloom make them welcome anywhere. The seeds may be sown outdoors In early spring where the [»hints are to grow. As the plants appear they should be thinned moderately, or trans planted several inches apart in rich, open soil. Liquid manure given while they are in bloom greatly improves the flowers.. Many sorts are also good winter conservatory plants of trailing Me >C'A , a Lobelia. habit. The perennial or tall varieties are handsome, showy plants, found quite effective for backgrounds and grouping. ASTER The aster is certainly one of the most satisfactory of the annual flower ing plants. The great variety in its size, color, form, and season of bloom ing makes it a most satisfactory plant for supplying cut flowers. In fact, many of the Improved sorts produce flowers equal In form and size to some of the better sorts of chrysanthemums. The range of color presented in this group Is one of Its chief merits. Strange as It may appear, the plunt world Is not very well supplied with blue flowers possessing characters which render them suited to domestic or commercial uses. In the aster, how ever, are found many shades of blue and purple and for this reason, if for no other, the aster should prove an attractive decorative plant. The habit of growth adapts the aster not only to close planting for cut bloom, but some forms are robust, tall-grow ing plants, well adapted for use in an herbaceous border where late bloom and careless effects are desired. The more compact-growing, large-flowered forms are most desirable for cut blooms, while the tall-growing, open types are most useful in wild gardens or for screens. The wild aster (aster novae-nngllae) Is one of the most beau tiful and most satisfactory of this latter class. The vigor and ease of culture of the aster are factors which contribute to Its popularity. Plants from seed sown in the open ground It» Muy bloom finely in Septem ber and October, when the flowers are seen at their best. For July and August bloom, seeds should be sown In Marc i or April in a cold frame, spent well very and open 10 best air, hut be if seed will ders. ers gle gold. from to eaves o ntln i:t pots or boxes in a living ■ " the SCI (Is "bout half an with ricit. light soil and pouts have tt.-ce or four :-;'cr them to thumb pots or •x**s. setting the plants about I j two inches apart each way.

Fresh manure er manure used in too large quantities sometimes Aster. proves injurious to asters. Only thor oughly composted manure mixed with tin* soil is safe for these plants.

In such I localities asters can he successfully I grown under screens of mosquito net j ting or other thin elotli. GAILLARD! A , In tie* gaillardias art* found both annual and perennial plants offering a wide selection of varieties and a profusion of bloom over a long period. The blooming period begins early and continues late in autumn. They are % Gaillardia. well adapted to mixed borders and are very satisfactory as cut flowers. The stems are of good length, carry the flowers well, and Keep fresh as cut flowers for a long time when placed In water. The annual gaillardias are nil propa gated readily from seeds sown in the open, but earlier flowers will be se cured by sowing seeds In a hotbed and transplanting the plants to the open as soon as killing frosts have passed. In either case the blooming plants should not stand closer than 10 or 12 inches. They grow and bloom best when fully exposed to sun and air, and when planted on a fertile hut light and well-drained soil. CALENDULA or Pot Marigold. The calendula or pot marigold is a hardy annual about a foot high. A moderately rich, light soil is most con genial to these plants, which should be placed about 8 or 10 inches apart, if planted in mass or in borders. The seed may he sown in the open ground quite early In spring, and the plants will be in bloom early in summer and continue to bloom until late in the au tumn. The coloring of the flowers Calendula. ranges through all shades of yellow Ivory to deep orange. The plants hlooin freely and earlier than the marigold, and are useful In beds, bor ders. or backgrounds. The dried flow ers are sometimes used for flavoring soups and stews. There are both sin gle and double forms of the pot mari gold. One of the most satisfactorj methods of propagating this plant is from seeds sown about April 1 in the North in spent hotbeds or cold frames. After the middle of May, In localities north of Washington it will be safe to transfer the young plants to theii permanent summer quarters.

At the beginning of the Chlno-Japa nese war, says a contributor to the Washington Star, one of our military attaches saw a Chinese regiment take the field at a review and go through a very curious performance. The soldier carried long bamboo poles like fishing rods, and witli these they rushed at one another, yelling wildly and making very queer gestures and grimaces. "What's the game?" asked the Amer ican. "That regiment." a Chinese general answered, "is one of our very oldest. It is now practicing a form of assault that dates from prehistoric times. The Idea is to trip the enemy up with tiie long wand, throw water in his face and, in the midst of his bewilderment at this extraordinary treatment, to cut off his head."—Youth's Compan ion. A Valued Household Remedy for Over Half a Century. In our climate, with its sudden changes of temperature, rain, wind and sunshine often intermingled in a single day.
