by headache or backache, "Favorite

painful disorders that afflict her sex, she
will find relief and emancipation from her
troubles in Dr.-Pierce's Favorite Prescrip

for many years, in cases of "female com

Art and Mystery in Breadmaking.

time ship builder's trade, which the
mnster builder was supposed to im

appeals to the beginners, because of
the subtle and unseen Influence of
temperature and handling that makes
for success or failure in breadmak
ing. Once the student masters this
part of the art, he finds the rest of
brendmaking plain sailing.
Baking Is done in quantity. An or
dinary baking oven on a training ship
will take 80 loaves at a time. The
average time for baking a batch of
bread is three-fourths of an hour. On
the Meade the ovens work 24 hours a
day. with three shifts of 30 students
each on the Job.
War Recipes Used by Sea Bakers.
One reason why the sea baker's
bread Is not exactly like the old-time
home product Is that war recipes only
are now used on the merchant fleets,
as on land.
While these recipes restrict the use
of wheat flour and require the nse
of substitutes, they encourage Initia
tive on the part of the Instructors
and their students In the shipping
board's breadmaking schools.
Experiments made by the sea bakers
with varions combinations of ingre
dients have produced some excellent
war bread, and also have shown some
interesting economical results.
On the Bradford, for example, a
standard bread has been produced by
the use of 75 per cent wheat flour
and 25 per cent of combined cornmeal
and potato flour,

Mrs. Tobolt Astonished At Re

20 Pounds.
"Some wonderful things happen in
this world, and the way Tanlac has
restored my health and built
me up is I
one of them," said Mrs. Paul Toboit of !
916 California Ave., Butte, Mont, in
one of the most interesting and re
markable statements yet published in
connection with the Master Medicine.
"My trouble started about two years
ago," she continued, " and I have sim

until now. Last January I went to the
hospital when I was told that my

Well, the operation was done with so
much skill, and I was so carefully
nursed that I finally got out of the
hospital, and was home with my hus
band and children again. Then I picked
up wonderfully for a little more than
a month when I began having terrible
pains in my back and kidneys. My
appetite left me, and nothing tasted
right. I was constipated, had fearful
headaches, and was so nervous I could
not sleep. I fell off until I weighed less
than a hundred pounds and was so
weak that it was an effort for me to
get about at all.
"Finally my husband suggested that
I try Tanlac, as it was being so much
talked about, and the results have as

with the second my appetite got bet

to find that I had gone up to one hun

me want to eat up everything. I now
weigh one hundred and eighteen
pounds making a gain of more than
twenty pounds on three bottles—and
I'm wondering what my fourth bottle
which I have just started taking, will
do for me. I sleep like a healthy child
never waking at night at all and feel
like I could eat five or six meals a day.
I dismissed my hired help, four weeks
ago, after eighteen months' steady
service, and since then I have done all
my housework,, cooking and every
thing, I have no dull, drowsy bad feel

can't praise Tanlac enough for what
it has done for me."
