COULDN'T LIFT SIX MONTHS OLD BABY Mrs. Hawkins Was So Weak Couldn't Move in Her Bed Without Help. SUFFERED TORTURE Well and Strong Again After Taking Tanlac and Weighs More Than She Has in Over Eighteen Years. "I was down In bed and couldn't raise my head or move without help and now I'm able to do all my house work, even to my cooking and garden work and I weigh more than I have in eighteen years and have been taking Tanlac only about four weeks," said Mrs. Dollie Hawkins. 4906 Second ave nue, South, Birmingham, Ala., recent ly "For years," continued Mrs. Haw kins, "I suffered with rheumatism and acute Indigestion. The rheumatism got me down in bod and had me bound so hard and fast somebody had to move me about and the pain was ter rihle. I couldn't lift my six-months-old baby, and had to hire someone to wait on me and do my work. I was so nervous the least little thing dropping on the floor would startle me and my heart would almost stop heating. I couldn't eat any solid food at all and was In such run-down condition my baby fell off until It was Just a little skeleton and fretted and cried all the time. No kind of medicine did me any good and I was getting worse all the time. "If ever a medicine did wonders, Tanlac did It for me and my little ba by. I felt better In Just a few days after I began taking It. I have taken three bottles and I am not nervous in the least now and my sleep is fine and rests me. The awful rheumatic pains and misery Is all gone. I can eat any thing I want and my food not only gives me nourishment but my baby is as fat ns a little pig and sits for hours at a time on a pallet and plays with out a whimper. Tanlac has made a well woman of me and a fat, healthy baby out of my little sickly one, and I'm Just so thankful for what Tanlac has done for us I want everybody to know about this great medicine."

It Is perhaps the only advantage of being at Saloniki that you can spend two separate Christmases there. Thus it happened that, 13 days after we had eaten our own plum pud dings in the mess, we rode away ro mantically across the mountains for a Christmas day in a Macedonian vil lage, says a writer in the London Times. The cavalcade consisted of three Englishmen—one of them a cosmo politan genius speaking Greek like his mother tongue—Petros, a Greek or derly and a leading citizen of our vil lage. We sat on pack saddles not un like 1 armchairs, with rt»po stirrups. The* reins are a hollow mockery, their only purpose being to affront »lie pony and make him sulk. Hang them carelessly on the saddle* and the sure footed little beast will find his way along the most blood-curdling paths, where dee*p ravines full of bowlders await the smallest slip. At the end of a pass we emerged into a great plain and saw our village before us umid vineyards and tig tre*es. We fired a salvo of revolver shots into the air to announce our arrival and were soon shaking hands with a number of men in dark blue-black braided Eton jackets and durk baggy trousers. Petros was politely determined that we were to lunch with him and soon we were In his house reclining on lovely striped rugs of red, black and yellow and watching the sparks from a wood fire fiy up a big chimney. Be fore lunch, however, came a ceremony which is inevitable on entering any hguse. The daughter of the house brings a tray on which are small glasses of home-made brandy, an equal number of glasses of water, and a dish of sweet stuff—Turkish delight, chocolates, or In one case, unequivoc ally British marmalade to he eaten with a spoon. The guest stands up takes a glass of brandy, drinks it and says "Cheer oh." Next he takes a sip of water, and last a sweet. After the cognac and the Tc-kish coffee came lunch. Soup of tripe, rice and vinegar, followed by a duck. The duck had rice with It and a touch of garlic. Of ull ducks this was the most palpably divine ever eaten. Then fol lowed dancing in the market place. The market place is an irregular open space with the invariable plane tree. The spectators gather in the corners, leaving the middle clear for the dancers, who ai%e divided into two groups. One of these groups revolves slowly round a barrel organ decorated with artificial flowers and grinding out one never ending tune. First come half a dozen young men, their hands on each other's shoulders. Next, hand In hand, some twenty or more women with maroon-colored draperies round their heads, dark blue bodices and skirts, and large aprons of vivid scar let crossed with bars of a darker red and fringed with tassels of bright color. Bound their necks are strings of gold coins—dowries to be handed on from mother to daughter, big, thin Magyar coins mostly, though one woman has a brooch of three English sovereigns. Next to the women, come the children, tailing away to the very tiniest little girl, each resplendent in her tiny red apron. The. leader per forms a very simple step; his imme diate neighbors imitate It, but further down the line the step becomes a mere shuffle, and so they go round and round forever silently and steadily, not ap parently bored, but with no trace of joviality. The other group consists of older men who dance far more elaborately with turnings and twistings and duck ings and snapping of fingers. Their leader Is a fine, tall fellow with a fierce black mustache and a red sash. He waves a bottle in one hand, as sumes poses of humorously exaggerat ed grace, nnd has altogether ä de bonair and swashbucklering way with him. Having been to America he proudly shouts, "Merry Christmas! Happy New Year." A Pew Complainer Answered. Deacon Jones decided to speak his mind to the minister who was tem porarily filling the pulpit. "I didn't like your prayer very much this morn ing," said*he. "No?" answered the minister. "And what was the matter with it?" "Well, In the first place, it was too long; and, aside from this, it contained two or three expressions which I thought were scarcely war ranted." "I am sorry, deacon," the good man responded, "but it might be well to bear In mind that the prayer wasn't addressed to you."—Liverpool Post Keeping a Family. The New York city bureau of per sonal service says that the best an un skilled laborer's family can hope to do at present is to live on $980.41 a year, as against $S84.94 for the year 1915. The "family" with which the report deals consists of five members, father, mother, a girl of ten and two boys, thirteen and six years old. Food costs have increased $190 in a year, it is re marked. The report is to be used as a basis for salary increases for labor ers in the employ of the city, and his special reference to the stfeet-cleaniBg department employees.

KIDNEY REMEDY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED There is no medicine which we bandle that gives such good results as your Swamp-Root. Many of our customers have informed us at different times that they have derived great benefit from its use. There was one case in particular which attracted a great deal of attention in this neighborhood early last Spring, as the gentleman's life was despaired of and two doctors treating him for liver and kidney trouble were unable to give him any re lief. Finally a specialist from St. Louis was called in but failed to do him any good. I at last induced him to try your Swamp-Root and after taking it for three months, he was attending to his business as usual and is now entirely well. This ease has been the means of creating an increased demand for your Swamp-Root with us. Very truly yours, L. A. RICHARDSON, Druggist. May 27, 1916. Marine, Illinois.

LIFT YOUR CORNS OFF WITH FINGERS | How to loosen a tender corn j or callus so it lifts out j without pain. | Let folks step on your feet hereafter ; wear shoes a size smaller if you like, for corns will never again send electric sparks of pain through you, according to this Cincinnati authority. He says that a few drops of a drug called freezone, applied directly upon a tender, aching corn, instantly re lieves soreness, and soon the entire corn, root and all, lifts right out. This drug dries at once and simply shrivels up the corn or callus without even irritnting the surrounding skin. A small bottle of freezone obtained at any drug store will cost very little but will positively remove every hard or soft corn or callus from one's feet. If your druggist hasn't stocked this new drug yet, tell him to get a small bottle of freezone for you from his wholesale drug house.—adv. Paradoxical Treatment. "That is a rare cook you have."

A ten-year-old Muncie schoolboy a few days ago was seen by his father, at the noon hour, pinning a small American flag on the seat of his trou sers. Calling his son to task, the elder inquired the reason for this un usual action. "Well, you see, papa," said the bright youth, "some of us boys shot paper wads In school today, and the principal said we should all be given a lickin' after school tills afternoon. I figured out if I had this flag there he wouldn't dare strike the flag of his country."— Indianapolis News. Dangers of Watered Coffee by dial The no - I Watered stock, watered milk, and : watered coffee—the United States Gov eminent is carrying on a crusade to eliminate all three. Everyone knows about watered stock. Everyone has seen "blue milk," the combined efforts of a cow and the old pump. But not everyone Is on his guard against "watered coffee." That the United States Government realizes the danger of watered coffee Is shown by the specifications for the United States Army supplies. These specifications say plainly : "Coffee : roasts must be 'dry' roasts, no water being permitted before, during or after the process of roasting." Water in coffee Is a piece of dlshon •M* ! ! I ter by estv practiced bv unscrupulous coffee j roasters. They turn the hose on the be coffee while It is being roasted, so that it won't lose weight, as coffee will, when properly roasted. In roast ing. coffee should lose about 16% of Its weight. If It Is watered it loses but 4%. The difference, of course, Is water, for which you pay coffee value. This is adulteration and nothing more. The water-logged coffee Is rank and unhealthy. Of course, It Is not honest to charge for coffee, and sell coffee beans soaked In water on up lilt**' UUUUÖ puuacta A lot of watered coffee Is being sold no doubt right In this town.
