"I improved so much after taking Tanlac that my own father and mother hardly recognized me when I went to visit them," said Mrs. D. Herrihgton, residing at 1232 Fourth avenue, Nashville, Tenn. a short time ago. "Four long years I suffered with peculiar pains in my side and stom ach," she continued, " and my hus band spent hundreds of dollars try ing to get me well, but it was money spent in vain. I fell off to ninety eight pounds and was so weak I couldn't do any work at all and could hardly get around. I had no appetite and was so nervous and torn up I couldn't sleep at night. "My husband finally got me to try Tanlac and I'm sure glad I did. Every pain I had has- disappeared and my nerves are as steady as a rock and I sleep at night like a child. Tanlac has made a new woman of me, for besides gaining back all my strength until I am able to do my housework, I have gained fourteen pounds in weight. I feel so good and strong that I have been doing a lot of gar dening, and haven't had a bit of trouble at all." Tanlac is sold by S. B. Street Drug Store. American Destroyer in Submarine Zone Cover Many Miles. Some judication of the ceaseless watch kept cn U13 high seas, in the path of American troopships, by the United States naval forces operating in European waters, may be gained from statistics just compiled at the naval headquarters in London. These statistics show that a single force of American destroyers operating from one base had steamed almost 1,500, 000 miles up to April 1. The maxi mum distance covered by a single destroyer was more than 580,000 miles from May 1, 1917, to April 1, 1918. This destroyer was one of the first to arrive abroad after war was declared. It has been announced that Vice Admiral William S. Sims, command ing United States naval forces abroad, offered to send an auxiliary force composed of naval units to the French front at the beginning of tho German offensive. The chief of staff of the French navy, and Gen. Foch did not consider that the circum stances demanded the presence of such a force at the front. The French have had a naval di vision operating in the forces of the Lorraine sector for some time, and the naval units have made their part of the line as shipshape as possible, with everything from big naval guns down to sleeping hammocks and ships' cats. The American soldiers billeted in England for temporary training or en route for France are more and more compelling the admiration and co-operation of the English people. The National Sporting Club of Lon don has started a series of weekly entertainments for enlisted men of the United States army and navy. New Plan Offers Military Instruc tion to College Student. Military instruction under officers and noncommissioned officers of the army will be provided in every insti tution of college grade which enrolls for the instruction 100 or more able bodied students over the age of 18, beginning in September, 1918. Ths necerrary , military equipment will, so far as possible, be provided by the government. There will be created1 a military training unit in each in stitution. Enlistment will be pure ly voluntary, but all students over the age of 18 will b encouraged to enlist. The enlistment will constitute the student a member of the army of the United States, liable to actrVe duty at the call of the President. It will, however, be the policy of the govern ment not to call the members of the training units to active duty until they have reachud the age of 21, un lesu urgent military necessity com pels an earlier call. Students un der 18, and therefore not legally eligible for enlistment, will be en couraged to enroll in the training units. Provision will be made for co ordinating the Reserve Officers Training Corps system, which exists in about one-third of the collegiate institutions, with this broader plan.

Why We Fight No, 3 1 Because Germany Having Split the World la HaU la Now Tryiag to Devour the Halves By CLARENCE L. SPEED Secretary of the War Committee of the union League hud of CMcago. We are fighting Germany, for one thing, because Germany, having split the world In half, Is now seeking to devour the halves separately. She has driven a wedge straight through the heart of Europe, and into Asia, and Is seeking to extend It to the Per sian gulf. This Is no accidental happening, due to the downfall of Russia and the sud den shifting In the fortunes of war. Germany planned It all decades ago. She made no effort to keep the plans secret. She told us all about It She had a reputation for making plans and sticking to them, from one gener ation to another; yet the world paid no attention. , It Beemed too prepos terous even for Germany to attempt As long ago as 1895 a pamphlet, "Pan-Germany and Central Europe About lOrA" was published In Berlin and had wide circulation. It laid the whole Mltteleuropa plan bare as fol lows : "Poland and Little Russia (the king dom to be established at Russia's ex pense) will agree to have no armies of their own, and will receive In their fortresses German and Austrian garri sons. In Poland, as well as In Little Russia, the postal and telegraph serv ices as well as the railways will he In German hands." In 1911 Tannenbergs book, "Greater Germany" was published. This was only three years before the war, but It showed that the Idea of a German Mltteleuropt had not been allowed to languish. It says: "The new kingdom of Poland la made up of the former Russian por tion of the basin of the Vistula, and of Gallcln, and forms a part.of the new Austria." flow the plan has grown since then ! Russia's collapse dropped whole prov inces into the lap of the kaiser, and now Germany plans Its empire on a scale which would dwarf that of an cient Rome. It Is to embrace the orig inal Central Europe, Inhabited by some 73,000,000 Germans, make the Black sea a German lake, and extend clear to the Persian gulf through the vassal states of Bulgaria and Turkey. The German government started to put Its scheme for a Mltteleuropa In to effect years ago when It began the construction of the Berlln-to-Bagdad railway. Little Serbia stood in the way, so Serbia was attacked and the world was plunged Into war. In the opposite corner of Europe Belgium was Invaded and crushed. The world then thought that this was only be enuse Belgium offered the easiest route to France; but study of the Mlt teleuropa plan of years ago shows that Belgium was included In the scheme of conqnest - - - - - "How does all this affect America?" One may ask. Germany was a late comer In the family of great nations. Most of the uncivilized world had been pre-empted by other nations before she arrived. Germany wanted col onies. To get them she would have to take them away from someone else. Africa and South America offered the best fields for German coloniza tion. England possessed the best part of Africa the parts In which tho white man might hope to settle and thrive. England had a mighty fleet, and a disposition to hold what she had, even though she did not show a disposition to fight for more. There remained South America. It was divided among weak nations. It was protected only by the Monroe doc trine. This Monroe doctrine was a sacred thing to Americuns, but, not being backed up by mighty armies and . fleets, was not even a "scrap of paper" to the Germans. Can anyone doubt, should Gennnny succeed In welding into a mighty empire the 73,000,000 Germans and the 100,000,000 Inhabi tants of tho vassal and conquered states of her Mltteleuropa, that her next step would be toward the west? The very fact that she had this em pire would presuppose the defeat of England, so that no British fleet would stand between us and Germany when the time came for the kaiser to send his legions across the Atlantic. "As In the East bo In the West" Is a motto which, of recent weeks, has been much heard In Germany. At a conference of the national liberal par ty, held In March of this year, the fol lowing amazingly frank declaration was made: "Our policy has been directed to making the government and majority turn awuy from the relchstag resolu tion of July 19. (Peace without an nexations and Indemnities). In that we have succeeded. Peace has Just been made In the East under condi tions In flat contradiction to the pol icy of July 19, and has received the support and assent of all the bnrgeols parties." In other words, all Germany Is now planning both annexations and Indem nities, such as will leave her without a formidable opponent In the world. Can we make pence now and leave Germany, flushed with victory, In pos session of all she has gained and lust ing for further conquest? If we did, would not the whole world live in perpetual terror of German aggres sion, each country awaiting Its turn to be gobbled ct? Can any red-blooded American talk about peace without vlctroy victory so decisive that Ger-': many will be forced to disgorge all it has seized, and the German menace b removed from the world forevert Prohibitionist to Speak.
