Selection.
CABINET .IS FORMED
Collins and Cosgrave, Members of
Old De Valera Cabinet Reappointed
—Task of Setting Up Provi
sional Government Begun.
Dublin —Arthur Griffith was elect
ed president of the Dail Eireann.
Eamon De Valera and his followers
walked out while the vote was being
taken, in .protest against the nomina
tion of Griffith. Speaker Mac Neill
J)ut the motion for Griffith’s election,
and he was unanimously chosen.
Griffith moved the appointment of
the following:
Minister of finance, Michael Collins.
Foreign affairs, George Gavin Duffy.
Home affairs, Eamon J. Duggan.
Local government, William T. Cos
grave.
Economic affairs, Bryan O’Higgins.
Defense, Richard Mulcahy.
Collins and Cosgrave were members
of De Valera’s cabinet.
Collins Nominates Griffith.
Griffith was placed in nomination
by Michael Collins shortly after the
beginning of the session. As matters
stood, said Collins, Ireland was with
out a leader. He again charged the
opposition with obstructionist tactics,
and declared its desire was to create
the impression that Ireland was still
unfriendly to England and to dis
credit the supporters of the treaty.
The present course of the dail, if per
sisted in, would give England an ex
cuse for remaining in Ireland,”he de
clared. *
The proposition to elect Griffith
was opposed by John Maclntee, who
said he questioned the wisdom of put
ting up, in Griffith, a man who was
bound by his signature to the treaty,
to wreck the Irish republic. He de
clared no man who had signed the
peace agreement should be president
of the dail. It was proposed to do
gratiously in carrying out the treaty
that John Redmond was coerced into
doing in 1914, added Maclntee.
Republic’s Status Questioned.
Eamon De Valera asked Griffith
whether he intended, if elected, to act
as the executive of the republic. The
Dail Eireann, he said, was representa
tive of the republic and of nothing
else. Peace was not established by
the treaty, he declared, as the strug
gle for the republic would continue.
“This body,” added De Valera, “has
no right to give away its powers un
less it is established as a republican
government.”

I
THAT Tanlac is a wonderful med
icine for delicate children is con
clusively proven by the remarkable
results accomplished in the cases of
the three children shown In this pic
ture.
Little Blanche Blair, of Providence,
R. 1., age 13, gained 10 pounds; Re
gina McCabe, at right, age 9, of
Scranton, Pa., gained 15 pounds; lit
tle Richard Leary, Jr., of Philadelphia,
who was very delicate, is now in fine,
robust health. The statements made
by their parents are as follows:
Mr. A. M. Blair, residing at 20 At
wood street, Providence, R. 1., said:
“We are just so happy over the
change Tanlac has made in our little
girl that we can’t do or say enough
to show our appreciation. She had
lost nearly 20 pounds in weight and
looked so frail and weak that her
mother and I were both -almost wor
ried sick over her condition. Since
taking Tanlac, she has already gained
10 pounds, her color is better than it
ever has been and she looks and acts
like a different girl.”
Mrs. Catherine McCabe, 414 Dick
ens Ave., Scranton, Pa., said: “The
‘flu’ left my little Regina in such a
bad condition that I have no idea she
would be with me now if it hadn’t
been for Tanlac. It is a mystery to
me how she lived on the little she
was eating and was so lifeless she
never even cared to play with the
dolls and toys she got at Christmas.
Since taking Tanlac she is as hardy

will always praise Tanlac for restor
ing our little girl’s health.”
Richard Leary, 2342 Palethorpe St.,
Philadelphia, said: “There is no
doubt in my mind but that Tanlac
saved my little boy’s life. For two
years I wouldn’t have been a bit sur
prised to have seen him drop off at
any time. He had stomach trouble
and many a time the gas pressed up
into his chest until his heart palpi-

Living Room Important.
A living room of all rooms in the
home is the most important, and one
writer says: “Furnishing a living
room is like starting out on a voyage
of discovery.” This' room should be
furnished with thought for the need
and comfort of each individual mem
ber of the family. Give to the master
of the household a comfortable fireside
chair, a table beside that chair on
which he can place a paper, magazine,
book or any other things that he may
wish there; give him his own reading
lamp and a comfortable stool in front
of his chair.
No Scarcity.
“All the world’s a stage.”
“Yep, there’s no scarcity of mono
logue artists.”

You are entitled to the benefit
of the doubt. Why not take
advantage of it?
The law is very careful in protecting the
rights of a prisoner charged with a crime.
How about the Law of Common Sense and
the man who has committed an error only? Isn’t
this a good place to use the benefit of the
doubt, too?
Take your own case: If you don’t know for
sure whether tea or coffee is harming you, you
do know that many are harmed by the drug
element in tea and coffee, and that headaches,
nervousness, or high blood pressure are symp
toms which often tell that the drug, caffeine, is
giving the nervous system too much jolt
Probably you know, too, that some people
, can’t drink a cup of tea or coffee at bed-time,
and sleep well that night
Where many have been harmed by tea and
coffee, and you may be harmed, isn’t it well to
put the benefit of the doubt on your side before
doubt becomes an unpleasant certainty?
There’s charm without harm in Postum—a
pure cereal beverage, rich in flavor, fully satisfy
ing; the favorite table drink of thousands.
Suppose you try giving yourself this benefit
today, and keep up the test for ten days; then
judge the results. See if you don’t feel better and
work better. You can get Postum wherever good
food and drink are sold or served.
Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins)
made instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling water.
Postum Cereal (in packages of larger bulk, for those who
prefer to make the drink while the meal is being prepared)
made by boiling for 20 minutes. .

The effect of Tanlac on the deli
cate stomachs of the young is one of
the strongest evidences of its whole
someness as well as its unusual
merit. Although a powerful recon
structive, Tanlac contains no harm
ful ingredients^’minerals or opiates
which are so often found in other
medicines. Being composed of the
most beneficial roots and herbs
known to science it is purely vege
table and can be taken by the most
delicate children, and does not upset
or injure the weakest or most deli
cate stomach.
There is a Tanlac agent in every

Monkey in a Muff.
A monkey was used by a clever
woman thief to commit a series of
thefts from jewelers’ shops in Paris.
The creature was so tiny that she car
ried It in a big muff. Then while its
mistress was standing at such distance
from the counter as disarmed suspl
cion, the monkey would thrust out a
long, spider-like arm and snatch and
conceal a ring or brooch. It was a
shop detective, hidden in a gallery
above and watching with the aid of re-
fleeting mirrors, who at last detected
the trick.
Auntie —Run along and get ready
for bed and I’ll be up in a minute
and hear you say your prayers.
Little Elsie—You may come if you
wish, but I don’t think it’s polite to
listen while I’m talking to someone
else.
Laziness is the one thing that knocks
all the conceit out of pride.
