I DANGER FROM GRIPPE
Xfc? in That Cough and Weak,
fhrippe, pleurisy, pneumonia, these
ifcre greatly to be feared at this time
<ot the year.
To prevent grippe from being fol
lowed by either pleur?sy or pneumo
nia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system quickly.
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
Ideliclous cod liver and iron prepara
tion without oil, and get your strength
?nd vitality back quickly.
Mrs. A. A, Grabill, of Strasburg,
"Va. says: "Grippo left mo weak, run
<lown and' with a severe cough, from
?which I suffered four years. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seemed
to do me any good until I took VJflbl,
from which I received great^JSeneflt.
Mgr cough is almost entlrelv^one, and
I am strong and well aa&wT and I am
fdad to recommend VrKol to others
Twho suffer as I did."
Try Vinol with the certainty

BURY THE HATCHET
Commoner and Champ Clark Make Up
Their Quarrel of Mne Months. Shake
Hands and Issne Fuuiic Statements
Declaring Their Friendship
Washington, April 18.?Speaker
Champ Clark and Secretary William
Jennings Bryan met at a private
luncheon here today, shook hands and
issued public statements declaring
they had burled the hatchet and put
the personalities of the Baltimore
convention with the bygones. The
luncheon was arranged by Theo. A.
Bell of California, temporary chair
man of the Denver convention In 1909
and chairman of the California dele
gation supporting Champ Clark at
Baltimore, and was given by Ira B.
Bennett, editor of the Washington
Intense interest was aroused in po
litical circles over the reconciliation
of the two antagonists, whoso differ
ences became acute as a result of
events at Baltimore convention. Sec
retary Bryan's prepared statement, Is
sued tonight, is as follows:
"My meeting with Mr. Clark has
served to clear up a misunderstanding
as to my exact position towards him
at Baltimore. 1 have tried to make
It clear to Mr. Chirk that I have al
ways regarded, and do now regard,
him as a good, clean, progressive
Democrat. If my language at Balti
more created any impression that 1
?was charging Mr. Clark with being in
sympathy with any of the reactionary
forces, I am glad of the opportunity
to correct any such misconstruction of
my words or acts, for I did not intend
to reflect upon either the personal or
political integrity of the speaker. It
is my earnest wish that there may ho
cordial cooperation between the state
department and the speaker in carry
ing out the policies of the administra
Here is Speaker Clark's statement:
Will Work Together.
"it is beyond the power of Col.
Bryan or any one else to correct the
injustice that was done to me at Bal
timore. The loss of the presidential
nomination was a small thing as co i
pared to the Injury dono to my repu
taton? n the eyes of the world. But
now that Col. Bryan n his public state
ment has done what he can to remove
the unjust impressions that were cre
ated by his Baltimore speeches, I feel
that we can all be better, cooperate for
the good of the administration. I can
only repeat what I have publicly de
clared time and again, that all person
al or selfish considerations must give
way to the duty that all Democrats
owe to our party and to our country."
Saw 31 Ists Dissolve.
Those who sat at the table with
the other already mentioned and saw
the disappearance of what many po
litical sages thought the most em
barrassing situation confronting Pres
ident Wilson's administration were:
Vice President Marshall, Secretary
Dane, Senators Kern and O'dorman,
Representative Crisp, Secretary Tu
multy, Assistant Secretaries Os-born
and Malone of the state department,
Thoams D. Logan and D. L. .lames.
Those In charge of the affair said
Speaker Clark and Secretary Bryan
exchanged jokes and had a good time.
The statements were given out through
So far as it is known it was the
first time the two had met since the
Baltimore convention. Speaker Clark's
friends always have said Mr. Bryan
prevented his nomination and that it
was through Mr. Bryan's activity and
influence that the convention, con
trary to custom, refused to Kive the
speaker the necessary two-thirds vote
after it had given him a majority.
Strong statements of a somewhat per
sonal nature were also Issued by Mr.
Bryan and Mr. Clark at the time.
The reconciliation was looked upon
in political circles as the most si?
nlfleant political development of the
administration so far.
