On* Thousand Milts From Land.
It Is possible for a ship to reach a
point in the ocean where -it is 1,000
miles from land in any direction. In
fact, this can be done at several points.
By leaving San Francisco or Vancou
ver and sailing into the north Pacific
a spot is reached where there is no
land, not even an islet, for a thousand
miles,in any direction. So, too, sail
ing from the southern point of ancient
Kamchatka southeastward, a ship
will reach a point more than a thou
sand miles from land, the nearest to
the north being the Aleutian islands,
and to the south the Sandwich islands,
or Hawaii. In the Southern Indian
ocean it is possible to sail a thousand
miles out from the southern points of
Austealia and New Zealand, and still
be as far away from any other land'
and the same -may be done in a west
erly direction from Cape Born.
Incessant activity is one oT the
methods women teke of committing a
slow but sure suicide. Trying to do
two things at once Is another fatal
measure, with the added rgsulf that
neither thing is done well. A/change
of work, even to fancy-work, we nre
told, is rest,' but the hard-working
housewife might well consider that In
estimable restorative power will be
found in a few minutes of wide-awake
repose, although few women have
learned to enjoy it. A daily ten min
utes' rest in a recumbent position,
with every nerve and muscle relaxed,
will do wonders for a woman whose
nerves are on the ragged edge.

S Paul Man Says Tanlac Has
Completely Freed Him of
Rheumatism and Stomach
I "I didn't believe half they were

jit has done for me I'll never doubt
anything good I read or hear about
it, again," said Claud Chapman,** of
270 West Seventh St., St. Paul, Minn.
"About a year ago my stomach
went wrong, my kidneys got all out
of order and I began to suffer from
a constant pain in my back. But my
worst trouble was rheumatism. Some
times I had it in my right shoulder
so bad I could hardly raise my hand
to my head. Sometimes it was in
my hip and knee and, just before I
started taking Tanlac, my- left leg
was so bad I couldn't lie on that side
at all. My whole system became com
pletely run-dow^i and I was in a
mighty bad fix.
I "But in a month's time Tanlac had
straightened me up and rid me of my
troubles completely. Honestly, I
never have an ache or a pain any
where now and I am just in the pink
of condition, feeling fine all the time.
I am mighty glad to pass the good
word along that Tanlac is the right
medicine for troubles such as I
