Yes—deader'n a doornail! And glad of it This according to Walter V. Woehlke, associate editor of the Sunset Magazine. But, he says in an extensive article in the Septemher . number of that publication, we of Seattle arc glad it IS dead. And without it, Seattle, he prophesies, will "be a com munity of finer grain, a better place to live in, to do busi ness with." How he comes to this conclusion Is extensively set forth along with his post-mortem of the allegedly dead spirit, to-wit: Tju.t year a Seattle dally paper, feeling the thick blue nilst of bu*i nnu depression stealing Into erry corner of the city. decided that something drutlc must be don*. The community must b« awakened, tt was walk tn* In Its sleep, dead to the etll of hlfh tmprlw snd strenuous endeavor. A good "tiff punch right on the point of the Jaw ought to do the work, the editor *r|ii«l. So he hauled off snd planted s journall.tic Dempsev on Seattle's chin, following the Initial punch with a series of rights and straight Jabs, all tor the good of the patient. " 'Seattle's hark Is to the wall" the Joarn*h,«t, very sincere in opinion and with the beat of motives, an noonced to his fetloweJtlsone - rival cities listening gleefully witty dis tended ears. "We must grid our loins, roil up our sleeves and go to it If wo are to retain our standing. It's fight or die! Get busy. Btart some thing. Show your accustomed form A crisis Is at hand. We can meet It and survive It but only if ws can revive the community's greatest aawet. the old-time Seattle Spirit'— and more to the same effect. * "Ho kept tho •wake-'em-up" cam paign going for weeks: with every •tyle of type, with all the verbs snd fttfjoctlves of his vocabulary he tried to lnfose new llfo Into the old time spirit of tho Puget Sound commun ity. but the results astonished ths editor. Seattle showed spirit enough under the goading, but it was all dl reded, not upon high emprise and bold adventure, but upon the pah. Heat ion that aroused tt. As for the "Seattle Spirit." It did not stir.

"It was a Utile over two years ago that I first used Tan lac. and I got such wonderful results from it that I hare taken a Bottle every few Months since lost as a general tonic. Before I began taking the medicine I was so weak and womout 1 could hardly look after my housework. Mr appetite was so poor I could trsiw ty cat anything, and what 1 did Manage to eat seemed to give me no nourishment. 1 felt tired out and miserable all the time. "All my efforts to find anything to help me failed until I tried Tan lac, but t commenced Improving fight from the day I started taking this medicine, and four bottles built me up fifteen potmda in weight and made me Just as healthy as I could ask to be. "My daughter had a real nervous breakdown and the way Tan!,or helped her was simply astonishing As I said. I take the medirine every once in a while now as a tonic, and give It to the children too, and It keeps us tMI in good health stl the time.
