Sometimes there was such a swimming in my head that everything seemed to be whirling around, and for two or three months I was so sick and weak that my family were all uneasy about me. Finally I went to a hospital for treat ment, but this nor anything else did me any good. There was a sickening taste in my mouth all the time and my nerves were completely shattered. At night I would just lie wide awake, suffering, worrying and wondering If there was nothing made that would help me. In the mornings I always felt so bad that I could not get up until late in the day, and then could do nothing but sit around. "But thanks to Tanlac my condition is altogether different now. I had not finished the first bottle before I was feeling like a different person. My appetite returned. I was sleeping better and began to feel like stirring around. Now I am able to do all my own work, for I am feeling perfectly well and strong. Every sign of stomach trouble, nervousness and dizziness has left me and my appetite is so good that I can hardly get enough to eat. Besides eating three hearty meals a day I take a lunch between meals and enjoy every mouthful. If Tanlac has done no mors than get me off of milk and toast I would think it a grand medi cine, but since I am able to eat just anything and everything and feel so well I can't praise it enough." Tanlac is sold in El Paso by Kelly & Pollard. Adv. A Perfect Oxford Fit An oxford that slips at the heel is enough to ruin any man's good disposition. Look at the one above.

THIRD PARTY SEEMS CERTAIN DECLARES DAVID LAWRENCE (Continued from paRe l. and governor Lowden. Either one would do. The victory of Johnson ii Cali fornia doesn't disturb them, for they regard the rotes for Hoover as a re flection of the conservative senti ment of California- It is strongly suspected here, moreover, that in SanJ so large, anti treaty Democrats voted in the Republican primaries by the thousands. This view is confirmed by a telegram just received by the writer from a trustworthy source in California, which rada as follows "The Democrats were iplit about 59-6S between Hoover and Jonnson. Both sides claimed them, but John son, through superb organisation, got away with tae majority or tne iwmo cratic vote. Most of the HooTer vote came from the women and that class of people who have not in the past paid so much direct attention to poli tics. Behind Johnson were Milton De Young, formerly chairman of the Democratic committee of Los Ange les; Joseph H. Call: Joseph Scott, Irish leader, nitnerto in tne rwmo cratic party; J. O. Snyder, the last Democratic candidate foe lieutenant governor, all of the Hearst Demo crats and senator Phelan, Democratic lieutenants In and around San Fran cisco, the latter because of an agree ment on the part of Johnson to sup port Phelan's reelection for the sen ate. "There is no strong Republican candidate running for the senate, and Phelan has made good for California, according to the judgment of leaders here, and they are proceeding on the theory that a Republican conserva tive must be nominated " Knox Boom Looms The booming of senator Knox of Pennsylvania by his astute col league, senator Penrose, isn't a pass in.? fa.ncv of that veteran political leader. It is a shot across the bow of the Johnson ship. Mr Knox is an Irreconcilable opponent of the treaty He stands on exactly the same ground as senator Johnson He has de nounced the treaty as too harsh and cruel upon Germany. If the Republi can convention should be confronted by Johnson followers with a demand for a stand on the treaty such as Johnson has taken. Philander C Knox, former secretary of state, would be offered as the typiflcatioa of the Joonson viewpoint. Lowden and Knox or Wood and Knox wouldn't be a strange combination for president and vice president. For while Mr. Knox reflects the view point of the Johnson followers on the peace treaty, nooody would for a saoment call him a radical He is a tried and true conservative, with a record in Republicanism that is un questioned. The third party 1 coming. The game tt Is to keep it from drawing too many Republicans and at the same time to en courage it as a place for the pro teat vote of the dUsruntled Dem ocrats, the radicals and other ele ments nboM acquisition by the Republican party might be em liarransfng. The Democrats are taking renewed hope. The Johnson vote spells a split to them In the ranks of their foes. Five weeks hence the conven tions will tell the tale, and there probably will be a third party. Copyright. 1920, by David Lawrence. DEMOCRATS WILL NOT HAVE EASY TASK TO NOMINATE (Continued from page X.) slat upon Its ratification aa signed? If so. a warm debate is assured. For not only are many Democratic sena tors in favor of the reservations to the treaty, but the foremost Demo erat out of office is of the opinion and has expressed it, that a campaign carrying; the treaty aa negotiated by the president would lead to certain defeat at the polls. This Democrat is Mr. Bryan, who has come back so far as Nebraska is concerned, and is expected to play an influential part in the convention. He has been picked as the leader of the drys in that body and is expected to give special attention to the pro tection of the 18th amendment and maybe he will exert himself in that way. But he is so definitely on rec ord as respects the treaty, he will be certain to make himself heard on that issue, also. If it is presented as Mr. Cummings would appear to fore cast." Democrats Face Bis; Job, Eo the Democrats, while they may not have as much trouble la nominat ing a standard bearer as the Repub licans are going to have, will tece some strenoous work before they finish. TOe Republicans don't know what they are going to do. The newspa pers continue to ask if Johnson will be willing to accept the second place on a Knox ticket. There is little talk yet of a third party, although William Randolph Hearst seems to be driving at it and his papers would support Johnson, it Is said, it he would head a ticket with somebody like Thomas Watson for second place. Johnson got back to Washington yesterday afternoon from hla Indiana campaign and -his managers here gave out a statement declaring that bis California indorsement was the greatest he had ever received In his life and would Kive him added pres tige in the convention, while the old line itepuoucan lemaera conunuea u look upon his defeat in Indiana.

Arthur Brisbane's paper, says Johnson now has "a strange hold on hie consider ably perturbed party," and adds: "The use the senator from California will put his advantage to, bow ever, has set the politicians here fuesslng. Whether he insists upon eadlng the ticket named at the Chi eaern convention or accents the vice presidential nomination, playing sec ond fiddle to senator Philander Knox, of Pennsylvania, as has been suggest ed in inspired circles, or take the bit In hla teeth and bolt unless given what he Deiieves tne snowing maae in his campaign entitles him to. no body seems to know. "Johnson's smashing victory over Herbert Hoover in California clinched the senator's grin on those elements within the G. O.
