could not get out of my chair with
out holding onto something to keep
from falling. 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."

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.

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

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

TOe Republicans don't know what
they are going to do. The newspa

talk yet of a third party, although
William Randolph Hearst seems to be
