strike in sympathy with the miners,
failing tile reopening of negotiations
for a settlement of the coal strike
King George has called the army re
serves and volunteers to active serv

for a general strike.

in the distribution and guarding and
production of food and the keeping of

emergency, called reserves into service
and called for volunteers.

of volunteers will begin at once. The
territorial forces (militia) will not be
included in the reserves, he said, but
members and men were urged to en
list.

the nation," Lloyd George declared, "it
is confronted by an attempt to coerce
it into capitulation by the destruction
of Its resources."
ProtectiSn must be provided for the
vital assets of t!.e community and na
tion, he declared.
Lloyd George urged that volunteers
offer their services to supplant rail
way strikers in essential services. He
also asked that they support the po
lice forces In their work.
British" miners "practically refused'
Premier Lloyd George's request that
they renew negotiations with mine
owners, the board of trade announced.
There was no slackening in prepara
tions to have the nation ready to with
stand a prolonged industrial paralysis.
The government's great air forces
were to be turned over to food con
trollers to deliver necessaries from
oonntrv to citv and even from the con
tinent Alrcrait bf all kinds was to
be devoted to the work.
The delivery system will be supple
mented by motor lorries and by what
trains volunteers can run. The emer

WONDERFUL STflTEBT
Declares Tanlac Enabled
Him to Eat Better, Sleep
Better and Work Bet
ter Has Gained Thirty
Pounds.
1 consider lanlac the grandest
medicine in the world, for I have
actually gained 30 pounds in weight
since I began taking it. It has just
simply filled me with new life and
energy and for the first time in years
I can sit down to the table and en
joy, three square meals a day like
otner people. In fact, Tanlac has
made me eat better, feel better, sleep
better and work better, and I guess
that s all a man can expect of a
medicine.
"Before I took Tanlac, I was off 20
pounds in weight and was so badly
run down I was hardly able to do ray
work. Nothing seemed to agree with
me and my tood invariably soured on
my stomach. I would always have an
uncomfortable bloated up feeling In
my stomach, and although I tried
many kinds of medicines, I never got
relief until I took Tanlac.
"I also suffered considerably at
times from Rheumatism, but this has
all disappeared. In fact, this wonder
ful medicine has made a new man out
of me in every way. I feel years
younger and can do as much work as
in any day of my life.
"Of course, I am only too glad to
give you my testimonial because I
want other people who are suffering
as I did to take this medicine and get
relief."
Human Fallibility.
"Josh," said Farmer Corntossel, "do

"I'll never forget it, father," replied

"I have been listenin' patiently to
your advice about how I run the farm.
I thought mebee recallin' that episode
might make you a little more gener
ous toward any mistakes I happen to
make.
An Uplifter, Too.
"My friend, have you ever done
anything to make the community the

"I have done much, 'sir," replied the

his hands, "do you distribute tracts,
may I ask?"
"No; I clean carpets."

After Eating
Just Takes An Eat onto
"The first dose of Eatonic did rae
wonders. I take it at meals and am
no longer bothered with indigestion,"
writes Mrs. Ellen Harris.
Thousands of people, like this dear
lady, gratefully testify about Eatonic,
which does its wonders by taking up
and carrying out the excess acidity and
gases which bring on indigestion,
heartburn, bloating, belching and food
repeating. Acid stomach also causes
about seventy other non-organic ail
ments. Protect yourself. A big box
of Eatonic costs bnt a trifle with your
druggist's guarantee.
