I D. Hawkins Says His Wife

"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.,
"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

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

The Effects of Opiates.
HAT INFANTS are peculiarly susceptible to opium and its various
preparations, all of which are narcotic, is well known. 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.

New York Street Orator Rudely Interrupteo
N EW YORK.—The side streets just off Broadway, in the White Light dis

to passers-by from soap-box rostrums. But the worst hurst of oratory was

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
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

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."
