EXCEPTIONAL MACHINERY DIS
PLARS AT STATE FAIR.
It is announced by the Xebraska
State Board of Agriculture that over
100 per cent more firms manufac
turing agricultural machinery have
secured space for exhibiting at the
191S State Fair than was true at
this time last year. This will be of
ereat interest to the farmers of the
state who more and more are being
compelled to replace shortened man
power with machinery.
The S'ate Fair, which cpens Sep
tember 1st, is this year dedicated to
a policy of "helping win the war by
producing more food." It is very
much in keeping that an unusual
exhibit of agricultural machinery
should be shown. If ever there
were need of improved and efficient
machinery with which to do the
work of the boys who have been tak
en from the fields it is this year and
it should be the duty of every farm
er wherever possible to see the State
Fair machinery exhibit, talk with
the representatives and secure full
information regarding the possibili
ties of the various kinds cf ma
chines ad implements. There are
further drafts to come and labor
will he even shorter than at present.
The wise "farmer will be looking
ahead and planning to meet the sit
uation, lie should by no means fail
to not only see, but study carefully
the exhibits to be found on the Ma
chinery Grounds at the State Fair.
To do so will be an education in it
self. FINES UNEXPECTED

"I suffered for 10 years with
stomach trouble and( doctored away
a lot of money before I found a
medicine that was a real benefit to
me. Since taking one dose of
Mayr's Wonderful Remedy 14
weeks ago, I have had more real
joy of living than I had in 10 years
before." It is a simple, harmless
preparation that removes the ca
tarrhal mucus from the intestinal

OMAHA WOMAN SAYS SHE CAN
NOT FIND WORDS TO EXPRESS
HER GATITUDE FOR TANLAC
Mrs. Lillie O'Riley, who resides art
4723 South Twenty-fourth Street,
Omaha, is still another whose deep
sense of gratitude and desire to
beneHt others will not permit her to
remain silent regarding the re
markable results she has obtained
from the use of Tanlac. Mrs. O'Riley
is the wife of F. W. O'Riley, mana
ger for the Adams Express in South
Omaha, and their many friends will
be glad to learn of her recovery,
"I cannot find words," said Mrs.
O'Riley, "to express the gratitude I
really feel for what Tanlac has done
for me. I had been almost an in
valid for so long that I had about
lost hopes of ever getting well. My
stomach was in such a bad condi
tion that I could hardly eat any
thing, and I suffered from indiges
tion and nervousness all the time.
My feet were so affected with rheu
matism, that I couldn't walk for a
long time. I also had it in both el
bows so bad that I could hardly move
my arms, and my back hurt me so
bad I could scarcely bend over. I
was confined to the house nearly all
the time and while I tried every
thing I could think of nothing seem

all these troubles, tells the whole
story of what a wonderful thing it
has been for me. In fact, it has
made me feel like a new women. I
don't have any more pains of any
kind, and am feeling just fiie. My
appetite picked up almost as soon as
I began taking it, and now it seems
I Just can't eat enough without mak
ing a pig of myself, and everything I
eat agrees with me perfectly. I can
get about splendidly and my strength
has increased until I can do all my
housework. I can lay down early
at night and sleep like a log until
morning and my nerves are as
steady as a clock. I have taken
only three bottles of Tanlac so far,
but I have gained several pounds in
weight already and I feel that I
have a new lease on life. I will
praise Tanlac the longest day I live,
and I'm more than glad to tell any
one how it brought me out and re
stored my health."
