Tanlac Helped Me.
After having been unable to work
for four months en accouny of ill health
during which period she suffered from
chills, fever, indigestion and that. most
repucnant and discomforting of al
complaints belching, which would con
tinue for an hour at a time. Mrs. L
Boylet, well known housewife of No. 2
Slake street. Charleston, - has added
her name to the thousands who have
found relief iu the use of Tanlac.
"1 suffered from indigestion and
chills and fever," states Mrs. Boylet.
My indigestion caused me terrible
pains in my stomach and chest, and I
would sometimes belch for an hour at
a time I suffered something terrible
at times. It seemed that I could not
digest anything that I ate.
"I suffered from extreme headaches
- and was extremely nervous, jumping
at the slightest noise. After eating I
would have a pretty fall feeling in my
stomach and I became very weak.
These chills and fever wouid come on
me very suddenly. I would be sittiog,
and talking to my friends possibly,and
severe pains would start running up
my limbs. In a few minutes they would
spread to my back and upper body.
Then those terrible pains would con
tinue for hours. Chills would set in
and I would go to bed. In a short
l while I would become unconscious, re
maining so for nearly a half day. I
had these spells about twice a year and
have had them for about four years.
Sometimes my feet and ankles would
swell to double normal size and some
times a large blister would form on my
knees. This would first turn red and
burn just exactly like a red-hot iron be
ingipressed to me. In a day or two it
would turn into a real blister. When
this blister was opened and the water
let out it would turn into a very bad
sore. I tell you. I suffe.red terribly
I have not been able to worc for four
months because of my poor health.
Sometimes I would turn black in the
face, and have been pronounced dead
while in the grip of these spells. These
two conditions were gradually killing
me. I do not believe tlat I would have
lived very long if I had not gut relier
when I did.
"I read of some of the wonderful
things that Tanlac was doing, and one
of these statements was that of a friend
whom I have known for more than fi -
"The relief that I received from Tan
lac has been wonderful II has reliev
ed me of my iudigestion entirely. M.
appetite is just too good. I can eat.
and crave nearly everything.
"Those headaches I had, they near
ly drove me out of my mind at times,
have been eutirely relieved. I have
not had a headache since I started tak
ing Tanlar, and my nervousness is gone
I have not, had one of those spells, al
though I have passed the period when
they usually c-ome upon me. I do not
q.l.eve that I will ever have them
a".,in. They have come on me regu
lainv at about the middle of May. and
they did not come on me this year be
cause I took Tanlac, I know.
"-Taniac is certainly a wonderful me.l
icine. and may God bless it and you. I
most surely do recormmend it It has
performed a miracle in my case."

POSTAGE STAMPS IN HISTORY
Scruples That Seem Amusing Enter
tained by Royalties Whose Pic
tures Were Used.
The English post office announce
ment invalidating all the stamps issued
in Queen Victoria's reign affected a
considerable number of varieties. From
a table published not long ago in
L'Echo de la Timbroglogie, the French
philatelic journal, it appears that no
fewer than 3,193 different Victorian
stamp portraits had been issued up to
the end of 1909. King Edward figures
upon 1,080 different stamps. Outside
the ranks of royalty Bolivar tops the
list with 213 stamps, or nearly twice
as many as Columbus, who has been
represented 119 times.
When postage stamps first came in
to use, some people urged that the
effigy of majesty is too sacred to serve
as a label for letters, the Manchester
Guardian obt e 'ves. "Have you seen
the stamps yet?" wrote one ardent
loyalist in 1840. "This is the greatest
Insult offered the queen." King Ferdi
nand of Sicily had a special postmark
manufactured is the shape of a frame,
as that stamps could be obliterated
without his portrait being struck by
the postal officials. The smaller the
monarch the more he has to worry
about his majesty.
Harvest Every Month.
All through the year wheat is being
harvested. In January it is cut in the
great fields of the Argentine and in
New Zealand. In February and March
it is cut in the East Indies and Egypt.
The wheat fields are harvested in
April in Cyprus, Asia Minor, Persia
and Cuba, and in May in China and
Japan. June Is the busiest harvest
month of the whole year, for then Tur
key, Greece, Spain and southern
France, as well as most of the south
ern states of America are all cutting
The more northerly states of Amer
Ica, as well as Austria, Germany and
parts of Russia do their harvest gath
ering in July.
August sees the wheat crop gath
e-ed In Great Britain, and September
and October for Sweden and Norway.
Peru and South Africa are busy har
vesting In November and December.
Facts as to Sleep.
A recent investigation into the char
acteristics of sleep quoted by Profes
sor Jastrow of England reveals -a strik
ig division of sleep conditions be
tween the sexes. At the same time
it shows that people, as a whole,
vary little from the average, and that
most people sleep In abovt the sane
way. People who are troubled sleep
era really get as much sleep, but
they do so more jerkily.
The first quarter of a night's sleep
possesses more rest than all the re
maining three-quarters put together.
This gives a scientific reason for the
old proverb, "An hour's sleep before
midnight Is worth two hours after."
Not that midnight has anything to do
with It, but that the worth of sleep
does lie In the first part of It, and in

It Is said that the first Instance of

was recorded in England recently.
The bird Is the property of two school

In Horsham, England. They caught it
five years ago, when It was still quite
young, in a local rookery. By patient
precept and careful study they taught
the bird several words and now she

The astonishing feature in the case
