rAntm motet THE EVENING TELEGRAM, Prominent Physician iscusses CalonieD Dr. William Brady in an article about calomel in the Atlanta Constitution re cently said: "Calomel is a cathartic and a very crude and superfluous one. It pro duces no special effect upon the liver or upon the secretion of bile. It has no more influence over biliousness than any other active physic. It is just the ancient standby, cheaper than most other physics and retained in use because old dogs seldom learn new tricks." As a substitute for a poison like calomel modern physicians prescribe purely vegetable catbartics.

Lumber Yard, Steam Laun Etc., Closes THE BRITISH TANK tdry, (By Associated Press.) (Continued from page 1) buildings for the next five days, ev en though only oil is used. Tampa Is Complying A long distance phone call to Tam pa this afternoon was put in by the Telegram, and it was stated there London, Jan. 17. No on man or jena department of the British gov ernment can take credit for "invent, ing" the Tanks they came into be ing as the result of a long period of study and co-ordinated effort by many men acting under three sepa rate departments th war office, the admiralty, and the ministry of mu nitions. In the autumn of 1914 when the Vn t ra Aa rf oil In1 n atrial on. . . ihelligerents on the western front terprises there "were up in the air. . . . . , Two laundries, it was reported, had i closed, but a third, operating with j wood, was still open, though this one I would probably close tonight when convinced the law was being violat ed. The cigar industry there is not touched as no power save electric is used, but in case a severe cold wave should come, these would have to close on account of It being unlaw ful to heat any buildings during the five-day period. s Tampa's main in dustrial enterprises are confined to the cigar industry, and therefore it will not be as hard hit as Eastern ! and Northern cities. Millions Of Workers Idle settled down to trench warfare, it became obvious that some means of carrying the danger of well-dl recced and well-protected machine kuii fire from the German trenches must be discovered, if the English infantry was to carry out assaults with success. One of the- first proposals put for ward was for a machine 100 feet long, 46 feet high and 80 feet wide, weighing some 300 tons? propelled by an 800 'horse-power engine, and with driving wheels 40 feet in di. ameter. Another early suggestion, end the one which led most directly to the Tanks, was made by Colonel Swlnton In October, 1914, to build armored cars on a tractor svstem. Berlin, Jan. 18.

The new machines were of two slightly different types. One was called the male type, and was armed with two Hotohkiss quickfirers and a subsidiary machine-gun armament. These were designed for dealing at close quarters with the concrete em placements of German machine guns. The other or female type, was armed only with machine guns and was more suitable for dealing with machfine gun (personnel iand rifle men. At the end of July, 1916, .the Tanks and their crews had become so proficient that it was possible to ihold two exhibition combats over a prepared trenc system reproducing a line of" German defenses. At the end of August, fifty Tanks lyverc loaded at night and sent to France. tVhen delivered in France, the Tanks only travelled at night, and during the day were covered with a huge tarpaulin and strictly guarded. The first Tanks were all painted in camouflage style for purposes of con cealment, and eaoh Tank had its own name, like a ship. A whole se ries of them were named after var ious drinks, such as Cafe-au.Lait. Chartreuse, Chablls, Cognac, Cham pagne, Creme-de-Menthe. Another ge. ries bore names of Scotch clans Clan Cameron. 'Clan Ruthven, Clan Gordon, Clan McTavish.. The Tanks first wnt into action in that portion of the Somme offensive which began on Sept 15. The object was to drive the Germans out oi some high ground running east ani south of Thiepval. The effect was as exhilarating on the British troops as it was dumbfounding to the Gei mans. It is reported that many or tho British infantrymen were so ov ercome with laughter at their un feainly antics that they were scarce ly able to keep up with the proces sion. There is no doubt that the element of surprise had much to do with the extraordinary success of the Tank on their first appearance. But their achievements proved that they had more solid qualities than the gift of surprise. Later in the year Tariki vcre sent out to Egypt and were in action at Gaza. ciiBTROPICAL MIDWINTER FAIR AT ORLANDO IN FEBRUARY (From Eustis Lake Region) It is a well recognized fact that for seven years past the Midwinter Fair held at Orlando has surpassed like expositions held anywhere in the South. I We are informed that there are let ters on file in the secretary's office from men who make it their business ness to go to all the state and county fairs held in the South and they de clare that the Subtropical Midwinter Exposition held at Orlando beats them all. Notwithstanding the fact that near ly all Florida fairs have been called off this eason, on account of the war, the officials of the Midwinter Fair at Orlando decided early in the game that they would pull off the greatest ever this year. The premium list indicates that this will surely be realized, for al though the program is tentative and many features are still in prepara tion, it is quite plain that this fair, which the management delights in calling the "Five County Fair", will surpass all previous efforts! Among the features, we notice that; the live stock department will sur prise Florida folks with its complete ness, as there will be large herds of Ayrshire, Anggs, Guernseys, Jerseys, Shorthorns, over three hundred head Kentucky Auto Shop REAR OF 213 SOUTH KY.

Passenger traffic revenues on German railroads in the third war year show an increaso of 5.3 per cent, over the record figure of the last twelve months of peace (August, 1913 July, 1914), according to the Norddeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung. In the first war year revenues fell off 32.1 per cent, and In the second war year 21 per cent. As freight traffic, this yielded an increase of 8 per cent, on the rec ord figure reached in the year ending July 31, 1914.
