been published by Dr. O. A. Johnson,
Suite 530, 1320 Main St.., Kansas

treatment of most kinds of cancer if
taken in time. Absolute proof of
this treatment can be verified by liv

OPTIMISTIC VIEW NOW HELD BY
ITALIANS THAT GERMAN AS
SAULT WILL BE CHECKED
WITH AID OF ALLIED
Washington, Nov. 1. Reassuring
news came from Rome today in of
ficial dispatches. While serious, the
situation on the Italian front is des
cribed as far from desperate. Gen
eral Cadorna's army is declared to
be practically intact and complete
confidence is expressed in his ability
with aid coming from the allies to
stop the Austro-German drive.
.The cablegram summarizes the
situation as follows:
"The military situation on the
Italian front is serious, but it is far
from being desperate. Having re
covered from the first surprise, it
may be stated that our allies are
preparing to put up a furious resist
ance to the enemy. It is probable
that if the retreat should continue
for a few days longer, the Italian
resistance will develop along the
Tagliamento river, which descends
from the Carnic Alps, or perhaps if
the Austro-Germans attack in Cernla
it will be on the Pisve river which
Italians Not Weakened.
Whatever the number of Italians
akon prisoners, the strength of the
army of General Cadorna. has not
been weakened. It must not be for
gotten that Italy has under the col
ors more than 3,000.000 men. As
for the guns that the Austro-Ger
mans claim to have captured, they
only represent the production of a
few weeks of the munitions factories
of our allies.
"The Italian army is practically
intact. Besides the French and
English are coming to our rescue. It
has already been announced that at
the beginning of the council Sun
day evening, the French ministers
were busy determininy the extent
and nature of the co-operation of the
allies on the Italian front. The
Brii'sh eovernment has taken prompt
measures to rush aid to the Italians
and all indications are that this
French and British aid will come
at the hour when the enemy invades
the plain of Freoule.
"Meanwhile, awaitin;; develop
ments, Italian public opinion realizes
thoroughly the .vravitv of the hour
and is bearing the shock with calm
ness and firmness.'
RETURNS FROM THE WEST.
Prom Friday's DatlT.
Thi3 morning Charles Schopp, Jr.,
and Vael Smith returned from the
west, where they have been for the
past month or longer putting in a
crop of winter wheat for Mr. C. II.
Schopp, in Chase county. Mr. Schopp
purchased a farm there containing
a large number of acres, which he de
sired to have sown to wheat. Ac
cordingly, he shipped a lot of agri
cultural Implements out there and
with a force of assistants has been
busy putting the large acreage to
this needed commodity. Mr. C. H.
Schopp stopped off at Omaha for a
short visit and to look after some
business matters, coming down on
the train this afternoon.
CONTRACTS TO SELL MANY RE0S

From Thursday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon, T. L. Amick
and wife went to Omaha, returning
later in the evening with a new 1918
Reo car, which is a beauty without
a bit of mistake. This is the same
make car as Mr. Amick sold during
the past summer and fall and for
which he has signed a contract to
sell seventy-five during the coming
season, with the large cars that is
a lot to sell in one locality, but by
advertising well and with the sales
of the past season behind him, Mr.
Amick will doubtless experience no
difficulty in getting rid of that num
ber. By reason of the large number
he has contracted to sell, he will be
able to get better service than other
wise and will not have to experience
any long delays in getting the cars
In stock, as was the case with so
many dealers this season. The car
which he brought down yesterday is
truly a beauty and one which must
be seen and ridden in to appreciate
fully its merits.

' Makes High Power Out of Low Grade Gas
Men who drive cars are face to face with
a condition that becomes more and more
serious each day.
That condition is the constantly de
clining grade of gasoline.
Nearly every engineer has said goodby
forever to high-grade gas.
For the moment, and possibly for all
time, multi-cylinders, counter balanced
crankshafts, and little tricks with valves
give way in engineers' discussions to the
Every alert engineer is bending his
utmost to make "one drop of gas now do
the work of two".
Just as great situations produce great
men, so out of this condition has come' a
It is a Chalmers.
It makes high power out of low grade
Compared with other engines of the
same size or thereabouts, it shows :
More power More rapid acceleration
Greater economy Greater length of life
And an amazing ability to start quickly on
a cold day, and to "warm up9 without delay.
The Chalmers engine is a simple one.
That is one reason why it is so good.
In many engines of the moment the gas
passes on its way from the carburetor to the
cylinder through a tunnel, which runs all
the way through the engine block.
Before the gas gets to the cylinder it is
forced to turn many sharp angles and does
not become completely mixed with the air.
This results in raw gas running into not
only one but all the cylinders, particularly
when the car is cold and especially when
running for the first five or ten miles.
In the case of the Chalmers engine this
type of intake manifold has been com
pletely eliminated. .
A new manifold, termed "The Rams
horn," has been constructed of simple pip
ing. It is on the exterior of the engine. It
is a manifold of easy curves so that there
are no sharp corners for the raw gas to lodge
against and be pushed into the cylinders.
t The next development was to give the
gas the proper amount of heat after it came
from the carburetor.
What is termed a "hot plate" is built in
at the top of the throat of the carburetor so
that the gas coming straight up from the car
buretor hits the "hot plate", the dimensions
of which have been worked out very scien
tifically, and then passes around the easy
curves of the smooth manifold in a perfect
state of mixture and at the proper tempera
ture to each of the cylinders.
The case of this Chalmers engine has
1. On August 1 and 2, Joe Dawson
drove a Chalmers equipped with this same
engine 1,898 miles in 24 hours faster and
farther than anyone ever before had traveled
on land, sea or air.
If there's a flaw in pattern, or part, a
solid day of bitter, brutal speed will find it.
2. There are over 1,000 Chalmers
containing this engine now in use. They
check up past all expectations.
Therefore, the Maxwell Motor Com
pany, which has leased The Chalmers "Motor
Company, has put its O. K. on this engine,
and accordingly on the Chalmers car.
90 per cent of anjr automobile is the
engine; and no car can be a bit better than
