Manderson Lehr was one of the first Nebraskans to enlist his services to avenge the Hun ravages to Bel gium, the sinking of the Lusitania and kindred depredations, die first en listed as an ambulance driver before the entrance of the United States in the war. Ambulance driving proved too tame to the intrepid Nebraskan who trans ferred to the Lafayette Escadrille where he became a flyer. When his own country entered the conflict he transferred "to the American arnij with a rank of lieutenant in the flying corps. The parents' were first advised ol the death when a letter was returned from the French front marked "de ceased." Advices received from Wash' ington then indicated that an uncon firmed report in the capital indicated that he was killed in action July 15, although no particulars could be learned how or where he was killed, Lieutenant Lehr's flying partner, Charles Kirkwood of Pennsylvania, is now a German prisoner. His mother, upon learning of the death of Lehr, immediately wrote condolences to the mother of the dead birdman. The dead aviator was a nephew of the late General Manderson, for whom he was named.

BENNETT HAD SUFFERED FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS Was In Bed Weeks At A Time Unable To Move Now Does Own Housework. "For the past eighteen years my wife was a sufferer from rheuma tism in one of its worst forms," said William Bennett, who is employed by one of the large saw mills at Red mond, Wash., recently. "Whenever these attacks came on," he continued, "she wouH get so weak and crippled up that she would have to take to her bed, where she would lie for two or three weeks at a time, suffering untold agonies and unable to move. Her left foot was drawn up and twisted so with pain that she seemed to be permanently crippled, and one finger on her left hand was drawn all out of shape so it was useless to her. Her stomach, too, was all out of order, she had no appetite, and although she was just as careful as she could be about her dieting, her food would sour on her stomach and cause her great distress afterwards Her nervous system seemed to bo shattered, and her rest was so broken at night that she could hardly sleeps Her arms and throat appeared to be withered, the skin soft and flabby and she was just about as miserable as anybody ever gets to be. For years she had been too weak and ailing; to do any of her housework, and what time she wasn't in bed she was barely, able to get around. "I consulted specialists about he(j case but they could give me no hope,1 and I took her to one of the most; celebrated health resorts in thej country, hoping she would be benei fited tfarough drinking the water, butjj it seemed to do her no good. Then! she tried all kinds of medicine, but not till she started taking Tanlac did,! she find any relief whatever. AfV ter taking a few bottles of this won derful medicine we are prepared toj say that Tanlac is the only thing wa hstve any faith in. Her last attack of rheumatism was all of two months ago, and she hasn't had a twinga since. Her twisted foot is getting? back into its normal position, and that, bent finger is getting straight and supple like the others. Her stom ach is in such splendid condition that she can eat anything she wants with out suffering any bad effects after, wards. Her arms and neck are fill ing out, and are plumD and firm, and she sleeps like a child every night. She is now able to do her housework, and she is in better condition than she has been in many years." Tanlac is sold in Omaha by Sher man & McConnell Drug Co., corner 16th and Dodge streets; 1 6th and Harney streets; Owl Drug Co., 16th and Farnam streets; Harvard Phar macy, 24th and Farnam streets; north east corner 19th and Farnam streets; West End Pharmacy, 49th and Dodge streets, under the personal direction of a Special Tanlac Representative, and in South Omaha by Forrest $ Meany Drug Co.
