"I bad been in a low state of health for tive or six years, and tinally got in u dreadfully rundown condition. My appetite left me, and my stomach became so disordered that at times it nauseated me to even prepare a meal. No matter i how little I ate. it caused me to suffer! t.nihU- ;th imlitrputinn nnl irt. fnvmoil didn't dare eat such things as turnips, strawberries, or oranges, and my iudi-j gesiion nriaiiy oecame so acute mat at tunes the jvain rendered me unconscious. I was so nervous and restless I couldn't get any good sound sleep, and things be gan to look very dismal for me. "Someone praised Tanlac to my hus band so highly that he brought me a bottle one day. ami I'm certainly thank ful that he did. for I have never seen anything take hold and do the work as quickly as the medicine did for me. I have taken six bottles now. and my trou bles are all a thing of the past. I have a wonderful appetite, can eat anything I want without its bothering me a par ticle, and as I have said. I have gained fifteen pounds in weight. I just feel line all the time, and my housework is easv for me now. All that's left of my suffering is the memory of it. and I cer tainly owe Tanlac a big debt of grati tude for my splendid health." Tanlac is sold in liratthboro by the Itrattlehoro Drug Co. Adv.

The address in full follows : The State House of. Vermont holds an interest for me that no public building can ever exceed. This hall of the House of Representatives has a fascination that is unapproachable. Here my father sat as a member of the legislature and his father before him. At an age so early that my memory holds no previous recollection, I was brought here by my mother and my grandfather to visit my father, and. among oiuer experiences, seated in the chair of the chief executive, with a venera tion which has forever marked for me the reverence due that righteous authority which is vested in a government over wnicn me people are supreme, iimipureu with that visit no other journey will ever seem of equal importance. No other ex- i Dorience will ever touch in like manner t and in like degree my imagination. Here 1 first saw that sacred tire which lights the altar of my country. These surroundings make a proper set-. tins for the Vermont Historical society, for there is nothing which so shadows forth the mighty and enduring influence j of the past as the institutions ot that lorin greatest example oi tins was the deveiop of government which are represented by I nent of feudalism in the middle ages. Men me siaies oi me h-hii i nioii. i mi , have chosen for your own particular prov ince the record of the experience and at tainments of a state, which is not only dear to me in a way which no other laud can till, but which bad about her rugged I beginnings a romance of action and tradi , tion which will forever endear her to every enquirer who possesses a soul that res ponds to the spirit of the sturdy pioneer, who met the trials of those boisterous. turbulent years, which marked the found ing of Vermont. Those years are greatly worthy of the painstaking investigations that you and your associates and co-labor ers past and present have lavished upon them. " They tell the story of men with a self reliance that cannot be excelled. It would never have occurred to them to look to a government for support. They exjM't'ted and invited the government to call on them for support. And they did not fail to re spond instantly and effectively. They founded a state that declared the princi ples of absolute freedom of the. person. While they recognized and secured the personal right to acquire and hold prop erty, they disregarded it as a qualification for the exercise of the franchise, which they based wholly on character, resulting in manhood suffrage. Their constitution proclaimed the supreme sovereignty of the people and provided adequate safeguards lor their rights and liberties. Most lib eral of states they only needed a slight increase of religious toleration, long since granted, to make freedom here complete. It is not my purpose to enter into a de scription, however brief, of the Declara tion of Rights or the form of government of your constitution. The substance of its provisions is well known to all. It constitutes a noble structure supporting a free government, diffusing the blessings of the most enlightened civilization, rep resentative of the best spirit of an Ameri can commonwealth, functioning as a re public, with a simple dignity, passing the pomp of kings. Theory of Equality and Sovereignty. That which was represented in the es tablishment. supjKirt and perpetuation of the institutions of Vermont is the develop ment in its purest form of the theory of the equality and sovereignty of the people, iu principle the ultimate condition, toward 'Which it has long been our contention the whole human race is tending. The superlative fact for us is that when there was a people ready to adopt and cherish such institutions there were those ready to propose them. It has been so throughout all human experience, and is partly shrouded in mystery, in and of vliile it is phenomena the reason for which itself it lends a sanction to the institutions of government and society, as they have ! existed in the past or exist now, not on the assumption that they are perfect or have been perfect, but that they were and are the best that human conditions at that time could produce, and that thev are working toward perfection. The results of this position are twofold. It lays on society, first, the necessity in behalf of the general welfare of supporting and de fending our institution, and in the sec..nd place of striving diligently for their prac tical improvement. The ground for op timism lies not in the fact of past or pres ent perfection, but in the hope and belief tlit progress Iras Wen made and will be made, in spite of many calamities, ami many seeming disasters, which at present appear inscrutable to the understanding of finite leings. The soundness of this position I believe is demonstrated by history, and the justi fication of those instiutions, so typically American, here so resolutely adopted in the beginnings of this state, and ever sine' so stoutly maintained, if made at all. will be made out of the knowledge of past hu man experience. It is this which pre-eminently justifies the study of history and the formation of historical societies. It is by an understanding and comprehension of the past that we judge of the present and the future. History is to be studied and applied not for the purpose of advocating reaction. It is not the accurately informed who con tinually appeal to the good i.ld times to the disparagement of the present. That is characteristic of those who substitute fable and hazy tradition for fact and re liable record. True history which in cludes all the records of the past, how ever obtained and wherever recorded, whether made ujmii the surface of the earth by the ceaseless shifting of air and water, or transmitted by written signs on tablet ami parchment, or through oral repetition handed down from sire to son, or that most indelible of records the ac cumulated experience of generation after The Glaocy Kids Gee!

It is ignorance of its teachings which leads men of. good intentions to advocate either reaction or revolution, and a knowledge of its forces which aids men to promote the public welfare. In judging of the josopuers.

There have been many grades and forms of such development under many and various names, but the process has ever been from anarchy through despotism to oligarchy, which has broadened out into democracy, and ended in representative government, based on universal suffrage. Many nations have failed somewhere al. ng the way. The absolute monarchy has fallen into weak or vicious hands so that disorder at home or some superior force from abroad has overcome the state. r a people have seemed to lack the genius for government, or a strong king has cverqome a popular assembly, and what at one time appeared to be free institutions, administered by a legislative body with generous powers, as in Castile and Aragon at the beginning, and in France at a later period, of the Middle Ages has lapsed back to despotic rule. It is interesting to note that no nation ever lost its liberties in which there was maintained a strong rep resentative body vested with the authority of providing the public revenue. It has been suggested that Spain was able to disregard the liberties of the people be cause her rulers became so enriched by the revenues of the new world that they no longer had need to call on the repre sentatives of theif subjects for funds, but had ample means to provide an army which overawed the people and finally made the Spanish monarchy absolute. When the French people at the time of their Revolution summoned the state's general, after a period of nearly two cen turies of absolute monarchy, and attempt ed to step at once into a republic, of course they failed and landed in a new and worse desiotism than that which they threw off. In our own day we have seen a like result in Itussia. There is a step between absolutism and a republic which cannot be avoided in the experience of a people journeying toward jopular sovereignty. Russia, with all the exam ples of the free nations before her. is under a despotism more despotic than ever was administered by a czar. Russia and France, failing to reach at a single bound the form of government they sought, fell back into disorganization which is always the opportunity for the despot. Hope for Stricken Russia. There is a certain amount of ground for faith in progress in the fact that appar ntly there could have been no other means to break the despotic' hold oi the Bourbons j i Fiance, so that she might finally emerge after the chastening experience of sink ing from world glory to humiliating defeat under the Empire of Napoleon; she emerged free, a republic, and with a strength of character and n power of re sistance which has restored her to a true glory in the estimation of the world which no nation ever outranked. In her example there is hope for stricken Russia. Evidently she reached an impasse in her progress which threw her people back on the first principles of development. Lack ing the advance of France in the late davs of the eighteenth century, she will lack her speed of recovery. But modern science is on her side if she will but use it. Who now can say what service to progress Iycnine and Trotzky may not be perform ing when he remembers the Three Furies of the French Revolution? Always before we decide too hastily that the decline of the nations of antiquity constitute a total loss, it is well to exam ine what was destroyed and what was saved. The ancient civilizations which flourished along the Nile and in the vallevs of the Tigris and Euphrates run their i courses. They performed their tasks and ' went the way of all the earth. Modern scholarship is revealing to us, year by year, the completeness of their organiza- tion and the high attainments of their civilization. They were not destroyed in . a lay but grew up. flourished for a time, and gradually, as their work was taken up by the Greek, Babylon and Thebes. passed into obscurity. A stronger took' their place. Through the long generations that marked the decay of Greece, after M-r'j BCiNNINC pru2T ,' lTt iMji II the Macedonian subjugation, the real strength of that most wonderful people remained, remains to us today in the price less treasure of her arts, the richness of her literature, the deathless eloquence of her orators, the wisdom of Iir states men, and the inspired uisignt 01 lier pnil- for the very nomenclature with which to express our thoughts.

It was I there that tree institutions developed ac cording to the true form from the iron rule of William the Conqueror to the common wealth t.f Oliver Cromwell. Without haste but without delay, that process has gone on in government from the days of Babylon to the days of the constitution of Vermont. One people has c.nne and lived, and solved one problem, and when i'lev have ceased to function successfully an other people have taken up the burden and borne it forward, ever forward. Forces of Government Development.

Not enough credit i attributed to these forces in the development of irov- nnieiit. society, and civilization. It was by coiimrehendinir the natural foiP of the universe that man saw he bad in them a right of orosneritv and set them to be his servants. It was through a real ization of the fatherhood of the Almightv that came a knowledge of the brotherhood of man. of his innate nobility, t.f equality, of his right to be free. .in oi inese migiiiy innuences nave gone into the making of the institutions of Ver mont.

There is great opportunity for improvement of ad ministration. It is not enough that cor rect principles be declared in instiutions unless they result in corresponding action in practical life. By all the experience of history, by the wisdom of philosophy, by the revelations of religion, those main principles of human rights and duties set out in the constitution of Vermont, which is so purely American, are sound and per manent, representing that course which men must follow "to have fife and have it more abundantly." They represent, however, what ought to be, not yet what is. This is by no means the equivalent of saying that further effort is no longer necessary.
