President Lynch Issues Letter
to Local Director Showing
That European Terror Must
Be Barred.
Valuable Suggestion Shows
Those to Whom Nation Owes
Money Will Not Attempt Its
Vaccinate the state of Idaho and in
fact the nation with the thrift and
there need he no fear of Bolshevism,
Bays Governor Lynch of the Twelfth
fedeiuhl reserve bank in charge of the
Twelfth district in the matter of li
berty bonds and thrift stamp sales in
a letter to Allen B. Katon, state di
rector for the thrift stamps for Idaho.
The letter was also sent to banks
and trust companies. It is in part
as follows:
"To you who fought In the great
army behind the lines, the govern
ment wishes to extend its thanks for
your Epl?ndid patriotism and practi
cal co-operation in both liberty loan
and war savings during the past year.
"Honorable Carter Glass, the new
secretary of the treasury, sends you
the following message: Your dollars
saved half a million American lives.
Your money ended the war six months
before military experts deemed it
possible. Because the money you
raised purchased such an overwhelm
ing equipment of guns and ammuni
tion, ships and destroyers, aeroplanes,
tanks, horses, food ar^J clothing, the
German general staff decided to beg
for mercy beforef it was too late.
"The clay of reconstruction and set
tlement has arrived. At such a time
after our Civil war, Abraham Lincoln
uttered these words of wisdom: 'With
malice towards none, with charity for
all, with firmness in the right, as God
gives us to see the right, let us finish
the work v/e are in.'
"Never before bas the world been
in such need of wisdom, never before
In such need of charity. Therefore, let
us, like sensible American citizens,
finish the work we are in. Let us pay
our bills and get our boys home.
"The next loan is to be called 'The
Victory Loan/ and it will be for about
$6,000,000,000. It will probably be of
fered in April. The treasury depart
ment assures us it will be the last
loan and that the terms will be at
"Now, a word about war savings:
We regret to see that the banks are
showing a lack of interest in this im
portant measure. This attitude is
wrong, for two excellent reasons.
First, the government in advertising
and advocating thrift is rendering the
banks an incalculable benefit. Sooner
or later the savings banks would
have to do for themselves what the
government is now doing for them.
They should support thlte measure
for their own benefit. Second, wars
are generally followed by pestilence.
The Spanish influenza, starting in i
Europe, raged a year before we gave
it much attention. Working westward,
it attacked our physical health, and
thousands of our people died.
"There is now another pestilence
raging in Europe which is a menace
to our financial and national health.
It is.called Bolshevism. It has Russia
by the throat. Anarchy sits on the
throne with a bloody sword in one
hand and a flaming torch in the other.
This disease is also working westward.
Already it is knocking at our doors.
No quarantine will keep it out. Our
best remedy is the war savings
tamp. Let us vaccinate the whole na
tion with thrift. It is fundamental
that no man will seek to overthrow
the government that owes him money.
Banks should encourage the sale of
war savings stamps. As the heritage
©f war let us permanently secure to
the American people the blessings of
Let us mount your head and tan
your hide, make up your furs or rugs.

Few Recommendations Along
Lines of Precaution.

importance than anywhere else, it. is

stroys or endangers the lives of a
large number of children is always
horrible, and, if preventible, deserving
of the utmost punishment for those re
Chief \V. A. Foster of the local fire
department, believes that the schools
of this city are probably equal to any
in the precautions taken. However,
the i rice of safety in this as in any
other phase of human existence, is
eternal watchfulness.
Chief Foster makes a few recommen
dations in regard to the prevention of
flies In schoolhouses as follows:
"Janitors and others in charge of the
buildings where school is held, should
be ever alert to discover sources of pos
sible fire. The waste paper hazard re
quires great care to reduce it to the
minimum, and the heating plant has
caused many fires in schools.
"It should be noted whether steam
pipes are In contact with wood or other
combustible material. The tempera
ture of steam pipes is not, relatively,
very high, but the long-contained ap
plication of even genelt heat to burn
ing material, changes it to a dry, por
ous substance that readily takes fire.
Fire escapes should be clear of all
articles whatever, and the doors or
windows leading to them should be un
locked during school hours."
Berlin, Feb. 10—The Soldanrat,
(soldiers' council) Brannsweig has In

Stay off the damp ground, avoid ex

drink lots of water and above ail take
a spoonful of talts occasionally to keep

Rheumatism is caused by poisonous
toxin, called uric add, which Is gene
rated in the bowels and absorbed Into
the blood. It is the function of the
kidneys to filter this acid from the
blood and cast it out in the urine. The
pores of the skin are niso a means of
freeing the blood of this impurity. In
damp and chilly, cold weather the skin
pores are closed, thus forcing the kid

All Treatments Failed to Help
Him Until He Began Taking
Tanlac—Like' a New Man
Remarkable, indeed, wm the state
ment made recently by Charles Ringe)
of 319 Washington street, Peoria, 111.
Mr. Ringel declared that, although he
has taken the treatment 1 at' Hot
Springs and used numbers of differ
ent medicines during the past eleven
years, in his efforts to restore his
health, a few bottles of Tanlac have
done him more good than everything
else combined. His statement follows;
"Nothing ever helped me until I got
Tanlac and now I'm Just Uke a man
made over. My stomach had been tn
a very had fix for eleven years or
more, and pained me so bad at times
that I would double up like a Jack
knife. After nearly every meal I would
bloat up with gas until I was as tight
as a drum and just suffer agony. My
nerves became all shattered and tny
health got so poor that I was forced
to quit work. No kind of medicine
seemed to reach my trouble and I was
going down hill very fast. I was ad
vised to go to Hot Springs, which I
did, but after spending what money
I had saved up, I returned home In
just as bad shape as when I left. It
not worse.
"While talking to a good friend one
day about my deplorable condition, he
told me he believed a few bottles of
Tanlac would straighten me up. Well.
I had little faith In It to help me. but
as my friend seemed to know what he
was tnlklng about, I decided to take
his advice, and to my complete sur
prise the first bottle of Tanlac stopped
the gas forming in my stomach and
put m s in shape to where I could eat
and enjoy my meals. My food began
to digest as it should, my nervousness
left mo .and I realized I was on the
road to rapid recovery. As I continued
to take Tanlac my health Improved
and my strength returned until now I
am ablo to work as well_as 1 ever could
In my life. I feel more grateful than
I can express for what Tanlao has dona
for me and am now telling mjç friends
who are suffering to try It. ^ I can't
praise it too highly and expect to rely
on it for my health as long as I live."
Such statements as the foregoing
should appeal very forcibly to the
thousands who suffer from the same
troubles. Most people who suffer from
nervousness and dizziness, stomach
and liver troubles, kidney derange
ments, and who are In a general run
down condition, simply need something
to tone up their system and to assist
the vital organs in performing their
proper functions. Tanlac le a power

most gratifying results.
