Charles Alvin Blulh. son of Mr. and
Mrs John V Bluth, stationed at Camp
Lewis since last March is writing
home about the camp. lie has soon
thousands upon thousands of recruits
come to the camp from the surround-j
ing stales, train and he shipped over ,
to the coast ports for embarkation to ,
Eur6pe, and has received word from
companions who reached the camp lat
er than he but who arc now in France
Owing 10 being underweight he has
been unable to pass the necessary
physical examination for overseas
service, but has been accepted on limit
ed service and is now in the hcadquar
tvrs conSpany band, of the iGGth depot
brigade, where ho started as third. j
H tlassjsausicjan, but was later advanced
(oecond and then to first class, and
Hrow to sergeant, as his letters disclose.
LmmW" In a recent letter he says:
"We leave here in the morning for

'Can Walk a Mile Now Where
Before Taking Tanlac
Couldn't Go 2 Blocks.
' "Since Tanlac has relieved me and
, built me up so much I feci twenty
'vears voungor," said Mrs. W. B. Laps
I lev. who resides at West 211G Blev

' "I had suffered from stomach trou
'ble." she continued, "until I had be
come almost a nervous wreck and un
able to do my Housework and look
after my children. My stomach was
so weak and upset that 1 could hardly
.retain a thing I would eat. I lived for
days -at a time on nothing but boiled
milk and poached eggs, and half the
time they failed to agree with me. I
was kept on a diet all the time, and
my stomach was pumped out nearly
everv day. but this nor anything else
did me any good. I was advised that
a higher altitude might help me, so I
took a trip to the mountains in Can
ada, but came back home just as bad
orf as when I left. What I ate would
sour on my stomach, and the gas
formed by it would bloat me up ter
ribly. Sometimes my heart would pal
pitate like some one beating with
a hammer, and then stop suddenly and
keep still so long that I thought I
would never draw another breath. My
back, over my kidneys, hurt me dread
fully and at times my left side pained
me "until I could hardly stand it. I
was constantly taking something to re
lieve constipation and was almost fran
tic at times with headache, and was so
nervous that sleep was almost impos
sible for me.
"Now, this is just the condition I
was in when I began taking Tanlac
and 1 commenced to pick up with my
first bottle. It was only a short timo
until 1 was eating most anything I
wanted. I can now eat all kinds of
vegetables, or anything else I want,
without the least bit of trouble from

and I have already gained ten pounds
in weight. I sleep like a child every
night and have so much more strength
and energy that I can walk a mile,
where before I took Tanlac I couldn't
walk two blocks without being all
tired out. Tanlac has not only helped
me. but my husband, who has been
troubled with his stomach for a good
many years, is now taking it with just
as good results. Some of my neigh
bors are also taking it on my recom
mendation, so you can see what I think
of it. I am thankful enough for what
it has done for me to tell everybody
about it."

Fifth Winter of
War Will Bring
Many Hardships
HAVRE, Oct. 14 The fifth winter
of the war will bring greater demands
than ever for civilian relief in Bel
gium, according to a statemerit of
i Lieutenant Colonel Erugst P. Bicknell.
! American Red Cross Commissioner for
Uelgium, In winch he announced that
the commission has supplied more
than $100,000 worth of clothing to Bel
gian refugees in the last nine months.
"There aro more Belgian refugees
in France now than at any time dur
ing the war." Colonel Bicknell said.
"Prices are higher, rent is higher,
and large numbers of people, who, for
the first year or two, rotained their
vigor, are tired, prematurely old, dis
couraged, sometimes almost helpless.
"There is probably no piece of ser
vice that the American Red Cross can
render to Belgian people which will
help more efficiently to assist them
in properly clothing themselves."
"You know John has to be in
Washington, and I'm to live when
John's salary is."
'After an absence of a few months I have resumed
business at my Floral Store at 2249 Washngton Ave.

British Government Appeals
to America to Speed Up
Anti-submarine Craft.
No Greater Work for Country
Can Possibly Be Done Says
Sir Eric Geddes.
WASHINGTON, Oct. I I An appeal
from the British government to Amer
ica to. expedite, the construction of de
stroyers and anti-submarine craft and
appliances, was mado here tonight by
Sir Eric Geddes, first lord of the Brit
ish admiralty, after he had asserted
that the U-boat menace today Is
"greater thanjt ever was."
Speaking at'dinner given by the Pil
grim society. Sir Eric said that with
in tho past few days Vice-Admiral Sir
Ludovlc Duff of the British navy had
discussed tho naval situation in all its
bearings with Secretary Daniels and
Admiral Benson and that "complete
unuy oi view iiau ueen reaciieu.
"It is with Mr. Daniels' full concur
rence that 1 now make this statement,
that there is no greater service that
can be rendered by the civilians of tho
United States today charged with that
privilego and duty, than to expedlatc
the output of destroyers and anti
submarine and appliances of every de
scription," Sir Eric said.
No Country Responds Like America.
"No country within my knowledge
responds like America to an appeal
and there is no greater need today
than the need for the utmost naval ef
fort against the great offensive of tho
submarine which Is now materializing
and which the allied navies will de
feat as they have defeated every other
effort of tho enemy. But that" defeat
can be assured only If this need Is rec
ognized and the wants of the two na
vies supplied, as I am sure the United
States and Great Britain intend thoy
shall be."
Discussing Germany's submarine
menace, Sir Eric said:
"Indeed it Is greater today1 than it
ever was. That is to say, the offort is
grcated than it ever was. I think now
we are approaching a point where
submarine warfare Is again the weak
est front of the alliance."
In opening his speech, Sir Eric said
that while he must resist . the tempta
tion to allude to the present political
situation, there were two things which
he was convinced had not changed.
Absolute Loyalty of Nations.
"One is our absolute loyalty to those
nations who are associated with us,"
he said, "and tho other is our deter
mination to continue the war and not
1. .IS... r
uivuiiuu irom our purpose until wo
have secured the only peace 'which
could justify all this terrible suffering
and destruction which had and Is
being brought about by the Iniquity of
our common enemy.
"On one thing I am clear We must
not relax the muscles of our fighting
arm nor our war effort in any antici
pation of an early peace. To do so
discussions which may take place pro
longed and less satisfactory."
Reviews British Losses.
Sir Eric reviewed British naval loss
es, declaring his country's losses in
fighting ships of all classes have been
approximately 230 "more than twice
the total losses of war vessels of the
whole of our allies," and that 450 aux
iliary craft, such as mine sweepers
and trawlers, also have been destroy
ed. British merchant ships to the num
ber of 2400, with a gross tonnage of
nearly 7.750,000 have been sunk, ho
said, or "nearly three times the aggre
gate losses of our allies and 50 per
cent more than the total losses of all
other allied and neutral countries."
Germany Is Not Beaten.
While British and American sea
forces in all theaters of naval fighting
aro a homogeneous navy, Sir Eric ad
ded, the safety of lines of communica
Hon should not be taken for granted.
"Germany is not beaten, is not near'v
beaten, and in some respects is strong
er than ever she' was," he warned, re
garding tho enemy's naval situation
"Should the German naval policy be
changed by force of circumstances, or
by a spirit of adventure which it has
so far failed to show, it will be met.
and if it means to fight that fight will
be a naval Armncrprlrlnn In whlnii -i..i,.
magnificent battleships with the grand
fleet will, I am sure, take a worthy and
distinguished parL"
Tons of Explosives Dropped.
Four tons of explosives are dropped
each day on Bruges nnd Zeebrugge Sir
Eric asserted, so that these ports are
of no value to tho Germans, who, ac
cording to his latest information, are
removing the bases and the machinery
they had installed there. In surface he
added, the allies have the mastery in
the North sea, in the Adriatic and in
the Mediterranean. Sir Eric added that
"dangerous mine fields have been laid
by our submarines and fast offensive
mine layers right into the mouth of
the Ems behind Helgoland," the ope
ration being performed "night after1
"Does your wife show an interest
in tho war?"
"7es, indeed. She talks about It."
"What does she say?"

No Peace With Kaiserism; No
Armistice Are Terms the
World Wanted.
No Thought of Stopping
Fight Senate Applauds
When Answer Is Read.
WASHINGTON, Oct. U President
Wilson answered Germany's peace
proposal with a decision which not
only fulfills the expectations of sup
porters of diplomacy, but also dispels
the fears of those who predicted he
would substitute victories at arms
with defeats at diplomacy.
No peace with kaiserism: autocracy
must go; no armistice can even be
thought of while Germany continues
her atrocities on land and sea; one
cannot be considered unless it is ful
ly dictated by the allied commanders
in the field in such terms as abso
lutely provide sage-guards and guar
antees that Germany's part will not
be a scrap of paper; this, in a few
words, is the president's answer.
If it does not bring a capitulation
which may bo more than an uncondi
tional surrender, allied diplomats and
American officials believe it may
cause a revolution in Germany.
Beyond question it speaks for the
entente as well as the United States.
The dispatch of the president's re
ply was followed by tho Issue of the
following formal statement by Secre
tary Tumulty:
"The government will continue to
send over 250,000 men with their sup-
plies every month and there will be
no relaxation of any kind."
Senate Rings With Applause
Quite outside- of the formal phrases
of a diplomatic document that was
President Wilson's word to the world
that he had no thought of stopping
the fighting at this stage. The sen-
ate chamber rang with applause of
I senators as the president's answer was
I read a few minutes after it had been
announced at the state department.
Senator Lodge, the president's chief
critic ln his course until today, issued
a statement expressing his gratifica
tion. Opinion at the capilol and through
out official Washington was unani
mous in approval.
The official text which will convey
the president's decision to tho German
government and, more important, to
tho German people, was delivered to
day by Secretary Lansing to the
charge of the Swiss legation who has
been acting as the intermediary. It
was given out publicly by Mr. Lansing
at tho state department at C o'clock
this evening.
One outstanding point which does
not appear in the president's note a
point on which the world has been
asking questions can be answered to
night. When the president declared
that the wrong done to France when
Germany took Alsace-Lorraine should
bo righted, ho meantt that Alsace-Lorraine
should be returned to France.
Those who contend the president's
decision arranges the situation for
something more than an unconditional
surrender base It on the argument that
he has now passed the stage whero he
might havo accepted a surrender of the
German military and naval forces and
left the Hohenzollern autocracy on Its
Must Get Rid of Kaiser
Mr. Wilson, according to this view
has now'finally informed the German
people that if they want peac'o they
can only attain it'by getting rid of the
Tcaiser and his system. An armistice,
it is true, might come first and the
details of the downfall of the German
autocratic government might be ar
i ranged later. But, this is what an
armistice would entail:
First A stop to the atrocities or
land and eea and tho systematic de
struction and devastation in tho wake
of the retreating German armies.
Second The disarmament of all the
German forces and the deposit of their
arms and munitions at points to be
chosen by the allied military comman
ders. Third The occupation by allied
forces of certain German cities or
strongholds of strategic importance.
Probably also the occupation of all
the submarine bases, a turning over
of the German fleet.
In short it would entail a taking
from Germany of everything with
which she might break her word to
an armistice.
From that point the United States
and the allies might proceed to dis
pose of all that remained of kaiser
ism if the German people havo not
done it before as President Wilson in
his note plainly invites them to do.
Punishment of Criminals
While nowhere in the note does the
president openly join with the entente
statesmon in the demand that tho
"chiefcriminals" must be delivered up
for trial, the president's confidents
point out that he plainly subscribes to
the doctrine that the guilt of bringing
on the world war is personal.
