THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER; MONDAY, AUGUST 9; 1920.
WAS TOO WEAK TO DO ANY WORK FOR MONTHS Brattleboro Woman Says I She Would Cough by the I Hour and Could; Hardly Eat Anything But Tanlac J Ended Her Troubles. "I liave already" pained fifteen pounds in weight, and have been built up until I don't feel like the same per .son," said Mrs. William Urus, of 308 So. Main St., Brattleboro, Vt., in re lating her experience with Tanlae. "For some time past I have been getting into a rundown condition, and for several months I was too weak to tlo any work of any kind. My appetite failed" me completely, and my digestion ivas so poor 1 suffered conatanty from jjas on my stomach and a great deal of the time could not retain anything at all. I had frequent and severe head aches and would sometimes cough by the hour. My back hurt me a great deal, and it was always painful for me to stoop over and straighten up. I was very nervous and hardly ever slept well at night. -In' upite of the fact that I was under treatment and taking medicine all the time, I kept losing weight and strength and just felt com pletely used up. "But with the first few doses of Tan lac I felt a change for the better, and I have been taking it and improving ever since. My appetite is splendid now, and everything seems to agree with me perfectly, for I never suffer the least bit from indigestion. My cough has left me completely, and I am Just about free from headaches. My nerves are in much, better condi tion, and I can now enjoy refreshing sleep at night. My strength has in creased to where I can do my work with ease. My husband, who had also been . in poor health, saw how much good Tanlae was doing me, and began taking it himself, and it is helping hira just like it has me. We think there is nothing like Tanlac." Tanlac is sold in Brattleboro by the Brattleboro Drug Co., in South London derry by George G. Smith, and :'n Ji maica by It. J. Daggett. Adv.

MARION, O., Aug. 9. Assailing Governor (.'ox's speech of acceptance as "a curious mixture of errors and misstatements," Senator . Harding's headquarters replied at length in an official stavement last night to the gov ernor's criticism of the record of the Republican congress on taxation, fi nances and the league of nations. The Republican party, the statement paid, is ready to join battle on the question of whether "The senate at tempted to subvert and did subvert the wish and purpose of the American peo ple in preventing ratification of the president's league." Charges that the Republican senate and house had made no effort to re duce wartime tax burdens were de scribed as "far from recorded facts," and it was declared that by opposing Democratic appropriations the present congress had effected a saving of $2, 414,115,144 in government expendi tures. The statement also asserted that by suggesting repeal of consumption taxes and enactment of a blanket Vs per cent levy on the total business of go ing concerns, Governor Cox: had shown "that he has no program whatever ex cept to appeal for the support of peo ple who want somebody else to pay the taxes." "A leadership which would distort these outstanding facts as Governor .x has done," it continued, "will hardly command confidence when tile country turns attention to ; the prob Jem of our fiscal future."

STUPENDOUS ROAD 'BUILDING PROGRAM POLITICAL ADVERTISING. POLITICAL ADVERTISING. New Highways Initiated Under Fed- ' eral Aid. Nine Times Distance vs. i , j. .'Across Country. WASHINGTON, Aug. 9,Road oper ations under the federal aid road act thus far initiated acre-reffate' in lpncrth -nine times the distance from New York to'- San Francisco,' according to the. summary j given y 1 nomas 11. .AlacDonald, chief of the bureau of public roads, iu the depart ment of agriculture. -. The federal eovernment's share in this undertaking is greater than the cost of- the Panama canal, MacDonald said. Fed- eral co-operation with states is carried out. on an approximately "50-50'' basis. "Second only in importance to the size of the present road building program is the excellence of the character of the 1 roads being built," it was said. "Sixty per cent, of the total allotment of fed eral funds which has been approved to date will be spent for roads of such dur able types as bituminous concrete, Port land cement concrete, and' vitrified brick. These roads, when built, will in- crease by 7,600 miles the total of H,400. miles of roads of this class which ex isted in the United States before the fed- eral. aid road law was passed. But these, tigures by no means represent ine total mileage affected. , " "Up to June 30, 1920 2,985 projects, in volving a total of 29,310 miles of road, had been approved. The preliminary estimate of the cost of these prospects is approx-j imately $384,900,000, of which approxi-( imately $lU3,84i,uuo win re approvea ; as fedeiaivaid. On the same date 2,116 pro jects,, representing approximately 15,944 miles, had either been completed or were under construction. The estimated-total cost of these projects in various stapes of construction and completed, is $200,000, 000. The total cost of federal aid work approved by the secretary in the 19 months subesquent to the signing of the armistice, and prior to July 1, 1920, which is approximately $330,000,000, exceeded by $C3,000,000 the cost of all road and bridge work done by states and counties in this country in 1915. The value of the work' completed during that period amounted J to $01,000,000, a rate of construction equal ing that of the Panama canal." Hurrying the Ginseng.

A'GAN His Campaign Since Mr. Agan began his 'speaking cam paign, his political stock has gone up by leaps and bounds. When he made his first important , po litical speech in Felchvillelastmonth,hesaid: ' "I am the 'wet candidate and I stand here on two feet and admit it, but I-am not advocating the open saloon. I ' started out 18 years ago to do something for temperance and the result was the local option law, the best temper ance measure Vermont ever hadl" . t fc Vermont voters like a man who stands up and frankly and courageously tells what he stands. for. .Even if they disagree with him they-can respect a man who has no "ifs" or "perhapses" in his make-up. They know where to find him. They know he will do as he agrees. . h, . Frank W. Agan today is the leading candidate for gov ernor .because of that faculty foretelling the truth, telling it without dny frills, telling it in his own words and with out regard to whether it is "good politics" or just , plain facts, told man-fashion, so everybody, can understand what he's getting at. . i , v K . ' . r 1 - ' , . 'Although he admits being a wet candidate, Mr. Agan can point to the record of the local option law, its enforce ment and results, as first-class, constructive work for. tem perance. Under the old prohibitory law, there were at least 100 towns in which liquor was sold contrary to law. In the first year of local option,. 92 towns voted for license. In the last year of local option only 13 voted "Yes" and li censes were issued in only nine towns. kVe say that was good temperance work, VA When 155 voters voted away our rights to control the liquor business in our own way, the people of Vermont were thunderstruck. They had not consented to national prohibition. They-had not givefTtheir representatives any mandate about it. The first chance they got, they repudiated the action of those 155 men. .' . 'As against 13 towns voting "Yes" in 1907, 136 towns voted "Yes" last March as a protest against the 18th amend ment of the. ' Volstead act. Vermont repudiated the action of its Legislature by a. vote of 16,075 to 11,320, a larger majority of protest than the majority for the original local option lawJ , j - - V' That's the secret of the success of the Agan campaign Vermonters resent having anything "put over" on them. They like to do their own thinking and regulating. They don t want 15o men to say that the state of Vermont shan't run its own business. i i At the same meeting in Felchville, Mr. Agan had something to say about cider . "Taking up the cider issue, the speaker said that if a farmer buys cider at a mill he has to certify to a govern ment inspector and give a bond that the cider will be made into vinegar, what disposition is made of it, when, to whom, and, at any time, the government inspector may appear and demand the right to inspect the product, i "If at any time the cider shows over yz of 1 per cent of alcohol, that farmer is a criminal in the eyes' of the law. ; ' v "'How would you like a government inspector call ing at your house to see how hard your ci'der has got?''; demanded Mr. Agan. . "He said the housewife who takes the juice of black berries or elderberries or any other fruit and' adds sugar becomes a moonshiner. , J ' , . t , ".'If your wife is caught on the street with a package of hops she is violating the Volstead act and is subject to prosecution,' " he declared.
