SUFFERED 20 YEARS Wife's Improvement Has Been Won derful—All Her Neighbors Talk ing About How Much Bet ter She Looks. "I m taking a forty-mile trip to get more Tanlne." was the remarkable statement made by J. D. Hawkins, a well-known and prosperous farmer, in Jacobi's Pharmacy, Memphis, Tenu., recently. "Yes, sir," he continued. "I live at Bartlett, Tenn., and I drove eight miles to ILaleigh this morning to catch the trolley to Memphis, which is twelve miles more, so when 1 get home that will make forty miles I've traveled to get this Tanlac, and that's proof enough of what I think about it. "I declare I never saw or heard of a medicine doing as nmcli good as this Tanlac has done my wife. She has ac tually gained fifteen pounds on three bottles of it and besides it has-re lieved lier of troubles that have been weakening her down for nearly twenty years. She suffered with indigestion and everything she would eat made gas and gave lier severe pains in the stomach. She had no appetite at all and suffered with nervous headaches until she couldn't sleep at night. She was so tired all the time that she couldn't do any of her housework at all. I was just about to give up in despair, for we had tried everything we could get hold of, when I read about Tanlac and got a bottle for her. "Well, sir, she has taken three bot tles so far and her improvement has just been wonderful and that's the rea son I am making this trip, because I don't want her to be without Tanlac. She can do nil her own housework now and is relieved of the indigestion and has a good appetite. Her nerves are quiet and the headaches are all gone and she can sleep well at night. She Is gaining in health and strength all the time and the neighbors are all talking about how much better she looks.

Even in the _ Bmalleet doses, if continued, these opiates cause changes in the func tions and growth of the cells which are likely to become permanent, causing Imbecility, mental perversion, s craving for alcohol or narcotics in later life. Nervous diseases, such as intractable nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying powers are a result of dosing with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet in their infancy. The rule among physicians is that children should never receive opiatee in the smallest doses for more than a day at a time, and only then if unavoidable. , The administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Sootning Syrups and other narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly decried, and the druggist should not be ». party to it. Children who are ill need the attention of a physician, and it is nothing less than a crime to dose them willfully with narcotics.

But the worst hurst of oratory was heard the other night in Thirty-ninth (I ^ iLL h0T ALLOW SM ^ -------- ^ < f' /y/wfw tfiv a it in on tw/$ iriMT/ori o' mine - liïû-6/R-FE-J street. A man who introduced himself ns a major in the Honduras army, mounted a soap box and began in a quiet manner to talk about the pres ent war. The major Informed his lis teners over and over again that he had found the solution of the subma rine problem. He would not say what it was, hut he declared that when he learned exactly how to baffle the Ger man submarine commanders forever he would at once impart his secret to the governments of the United States, England and France. He expressly stipulated in giving the secret, however, that it was not to be used at any time to the advantage of San Marino, since of all the allied nations the one which lie could not tolerate or would not help was San Marino. Inasmuch as tiie major constantly referred to "my submarine method, of which I will tell you presently," the attendance grew and remained. It was just as a po liceman joined the throng that the demands for the major's secret became so emphatic tiiat lie consented to tell if the crowd would remain silent. "Gentlemen," he said, "like all innovations of influence in the world's work, my secret is ns simple as it is great. There is hut one way of halting the ruthless warfare of the Iltin, and that is—poison the Atlantic ocean." Ev eryone in tiie throng placed a tender hand across his own headache, and the cop coughed once behind his hand. He asked the major if he had a permit to speak, and when it was not forthcoming lie questioned him further. When the major told him frankly that hades is a myth and that in 20 years the czar will be president of Mexico, the officer excused himself and called an ambu lance. O Wealthy Youth Finally Gains Heart's Desire S ANTA ANA, CAL.—Slipping secretly away from Los Angeles in his racing car so as to avoid any opposition that might be'raised by his mother, Robert M. Bandini, youthful heir to $:>JO.D00 of the $7.000,000 Baker estate, sped with Miss Mary B. Harris, daughter of a Santa Rosa preacher, to where the couple were married. Filing of the marriage license dis closed tho elopement, however, and last night Mr. and Mrs. Bandini, who had returned to this city and gone to an apartment in Stanford street, wilier had been the home of Miss Harris, were surprised to learn that their wed ding had been discovered. "We had not intended to let any one know at present that we were married," said the young bridegroom when found by a reporter. "Did you fear your mother would prevent the wedding?" was asked. "Yes; but now that we are man and wife, I expect mother will make the best of it," returned young Bandini. That even friends of the eloping pair did not know of the runaway mar riage was evidenced by the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Bandini had managed to gain the shelter of the apartment she has been occupying without anyone knowing they were there. Efforts had been made by the mother of Bandini to prevent his marry ing Miss Harris for more than a year. His mother, Mrs. Ruth McMahon, who was appointed to act as the boy's guardian, together with the Title Insurance company, three times caused the young people to he separated, saying lier son was too young to think of marriage. He will not he twenty-one until No vember. Robert Bandini is a grandson of Alfredo Bandini, a half-brother of Mrs. Arcadia Bandini Baker, over w hose $7,000,000 estate litigation waged for many years. The heirs had almost reached a settlement when the boy's claim was advanced and the proceedings were halted. Claimants in the estate disputed the lad's right to a share, hut attorneys proved that he was entitled to some $300,000. -ÇC2,, Society Girl Determined to "Do Her Bit" D ETROIT.—Service to humanity has been the inspiration which has caused Miss Ella Farr, daughter of Merton E. Farr, president of the Detroit Shipbuilding company, 40 Putnam avenue, to forego social duties for thre« weeks. She will train in hospital work, which probably will cause her to leave for "somewhere in France" as a member of Harper base hospital unit. Miss Farr said that while she had made no definite decision, it was not unlikely she would accompany the unit, which is expected to leâve July 1. Feeling that she should do her share in the battle against Prussian ism, Miss Farr, at the solicitation of Dr. Angus McLean, head of the unit, decided to train for a nurse's aide. She entered a class at Newberry bous with strangers, rather than some of the other Red Cross classes, which man of her friends had entered, so that there would he nothing to distract her mini from lier work. The romance of the life of a war nurse in fiction had no part in the thoughts of Miss Farr, she said. When her brother Rothe enlisted for the officers' re serve camp, at Fort Sheridan, and her younger brother Everett announced his intention to take the summer training course at Williams' college, where he is a student, Miss Farr said she decided she, too, should do her part. Before enlisting for the two-year service, Miss Farr said she first desired to learn the exact duties of a hospital aid, so that she would know if she were qualified for the work. Weeds as Table Aid Recommended by Expert C HICAGO.—As a remedy for the soaring prices of foodstuffs Mrs. W. K. Jacques, weed expert, urges housewives to use weeds on their table. She has made a study of each weed's utility and beauty. But most of all, site values them for food. "There are ten weeds that can be used for food," she said. "These are the dock, nettle, sorrel, purslane, milkweed, larnb's quarter, pigweed, marsh marigold, brake fern and dandelion. They make j excellent greens and are nourishing. j "City housewives, however, will j find only three out of the ten avail«- j hie for their use—dock, dandelion and j lamb's-quarter. The other seven grow ! in country places. * "The dandelion is universal ; every me knows it everywhere. The dock is seen on vacant lots and lumb's-quarter may he known by its dull green leaf with silvery lining, "As greens they give the minerals for the body, and when cooked with tien slices of fat, a nourishing food. All weeds should he cooked alike. "Purslane, commonly called 'pussley' is edible,; Chinese are fond cf it, and it is found in well-cultivated gardens. Purslanjfe will not grow anywhere « Ise, and it can't stand competition. These aggressive plants decorating the •acant lots of tiie city make a good wartime food. Improvement associations make the mistake cf attacking weeds just because they are weeds." CALOMEL IKES YOU SICK, UGH! I ' IT'S MERCURY AND SAUVATES ; Straighten Up! Don't Lose a Day's Work!
