l-#ondon, Jan. 2.?The British. Wax
office, according to a London dispatch
of yesterday, estimates the present
armed forces of Qermany at approximately
one million men, as follows.
lingular army 400,000; land
torces of regular navy 12,000; armed
constabulary 40,000 to 50,000; temporary
volunteers and regular army
reserves 150,000 to 200,000; and civic
guards 300,000 to 400,000.

It is sulci that the slowness of tho

regular army in compliance with the
troaty obligations has been due in
part to the delay in the ratification of
. tho peace treaty and also to unsettled
condtiions in Gormany and the desire
of tho Government to avoid action

The Best Cough Medicine.
When a druggist finds that his customers
all speak well of a certain
preparation, he forms a good opinion
of it and when in need of such a medicine
is almost certain to use It himself
and in his family. This is why
so many druggists use and recommend
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
J. I*. Jonca, a well known druggist of
Cubrun, Ky., says, "I have used Chamberlain's

There is hardly a 3urgical operation
on a chronic malady that
calls for more careful diagnosis
than certain forms of the eye
trouble that find relief in glasses.
In spite of this fact, many per
son9 with serious cases of this
nature, place their confidence in
the skill of the combination man.
A reason for this is hard to find,
when the service of a specialist,
whose entire practice consists of
the correction of eye troubles,
can be secured at the same price
that is paid incompetent people.
