the Forbes home, striking or. her
right shoulder, breaking the collar

advised that the patient be taken to
a hospital at Omaha, where the in
jury is being treated, but by the
time they had gotten to the hospit
al the shoulder was so badly swollen
that the same could not be set
until the swelling was reduced. The
flash was very black, and the joint
distended, so much so that the physi

part before the fracture can be re
duced. Mr. and Mrs. Forbes return

the injured member will probably

One of the most noteworthy features in connection
with the introduction cf Tanlac, and the one that stands out
more prominently than any other perhaps, is the very large
number of well-known men and women from all parts of the
slate who have recently reported an astonishing and rapid in
crease in weight as a result of its use.
When so many well-known people cf unquestioned in
tegrity make statement after statement, each corroborating
the other, the truth of such statements can no longer be doubt

Another interesting case is that of

RETURNS FROM HOSPITAL.
From Thursday's Doily.
Yesterday Mrs. August Nolting
was at Omaha and found Mr. Nolting
getting along finely, and va3 so
much improved, that he though j that
he was able to return to his home,
he consulted with Dr. Davis, and
who after examination of his condi
tion thoroughly said that he might
return, and with Mrs. Nolting he re
turned home last evening via the
Missouri Pacific and in the evening
went to their home west of the city.
Mr. Nolting has been at the hospital
for a long time, and it is with plea
sure that he finds he is able to return
to his home. It is also a pleasure of
his friends to know he is able to re

roubles that he could not work lonjr

bottles of Tanlac fully restored his j
strength and energy, he gained ten
pounds and now weighs more than
he did before his troubles began.
The foregoing statements are from
well-known citizens of Nebraska,

C. F. HARRIS FILES
From Friday's Daily.
Crede F. Harris from near Union
Avas in "the city yesterday looking
after some business in the city and
at the court house, among other
things he filed "for county commis
sioner, for the second district. This
makes two tilings for this olficc
among the Republicans, and there
may be more to folow. Mr. Harris
like Mr. Mayfield is a representative
citizen, and shoul dit be. that one of
them were elected, the county's busi
ness would be cared for. Still there
will be other filings and until they
are completed the people are reserv
ing their decision as the fitness of
the candidates, to whom they will
support for the position.

National Film corporation has shown
good sense of showmanship. "Tar
zan of the Apes" is better than most
films which have been concocted for
the screen, and credit must be given
ScoU Sidney, who staged it, and Isi
dor Bernstein, who edited it. Na
ti'ral beauties, imagination and
clean, free spirit make the film a de
light. The film follows the magazine
ttory-with enough faithfulness to
satisfy readers of the Burroughs
story. To those who missed the
serial the film will be refreshing en
tertainment. Tarzan, as readers of the story
will remember, is the son of Lord
Greystoke, who went to Africa on a
secret mission for the British govern
ment. Africa in 1S97 was torn by
European ravishers, atrocities in the
; Belgian Congo, Jameson's raid on the
Eoers, slave trading, with its con
comitant brutalities by the Arabs.
The sailors mutiny, slay their bru
tal oilicers in fair fight and then
maroon Lord Greystoke and his wife.
From the original story by Edgar Rice Burroughs, with Elmo Lincoln, Enid

is a petted brat. News is brought
to Hiem by a sailor, Binns, that the

in Africa. The barmaid aristocrat
has Binns incarcerated as a lunatic

Some of the finest bits of action
ever portrayed on the screen are
found in "Tarzan." The fight be

vessel is an exciting bit of action.
Tarzan's struggle with a liou, as
well as his fight with a native negro,
are excellent pictures of action.

Although there are hundreds of
natives and dozen of apes in the pic
ture, the program only gives the
names of a few of the players. Elmo
Lincoln is beautiful in his massive
strength as its grown Tarzan, but
Gordon Griffith, who plays Tarzan
at the age of 10, is entitled to equal
honors. Griffith plajs with charm

man and Kathlee Kirkman play Tar
zan's father and mother; George
French is Binn's; Thomas Jeffer
son is the scientist; Enid Markey
plays his daughter, the girl with
whom the caveman Tarzan falls in
love; Bessie Toner is the barmaid
aristocrat; Colin Kenny plays both
her husband and his own father, and
Jack Wilson appears as the brutal
eea captain. Unfortunately, the
program does not state who the ac
tors are that play the finger-print
expert, .the solicitor, tho aristocrat
brat, the negro warrior, or . the
vengeful serving maid, all good play
ers and deserving of appreciation.
"Tarzan of the Apes" will be
shown at the Gem July 4th and 5th.
