ALL SI8ERA NOW ViRTUALLY UNDER ONE GOVERNMENT REGIMES AT OMSK AND VLADI VOSTOK IN FULL ACCORD; EOLSHEVIKI CONTROL ONLY A SMALL DISTRICT. Washington, Aug. -Assur ances reaciied the State department today that the anti-bolshevik gov ernments at Omsk and Vladivostok are in full accord, which, oihcials .?.id. meant that all Siberia virtual ly is under one government with a small portion near Irkutusk con trolled by bolsheviki forces aided by former German and Austrian pris oners. The agreement between the two governments was considered by offi cials here one of the most important developments in the Russian tangle since the overthrow of the Kerensky government. The first ditiiculty the Siberian governments have to face is the eradication of the bolshevik red guards and the Austro-German pris oners of war now fighting side by side. They cantrol the trans-Siberian railroad from Irkut. on Lake Baikal to Manchuria station about 200 miles from Karimskaya where the Amur riv?r line branches off to the north. Troops of the allies aid ed by the Czecho-Slovan control the Manckurian line from Vladivostok to Manchuria station. The bolsheviki and prisoners on the l's--uri river are not considered here as formidable as they have little to gain een if victorious. Their hope is to get as far south as Nikol.-k. about 4tt miles west of Vladivostok, thus cutting off Vladi vostok from the Manchurian rail road, but even if they sneered in this it will not interfere with the sending of allied troops westward to aid the Czeche and Japanese in ngkt in-r the bolsheviki from Man churia to Karim-knya, as the road from Port Arthur will still open to them. When the allied troops reach Karimfkaya. it is pointed out here, they will tut off the bolsheviki along the Amur river branch of the rail road from their comrades between Karimskaya and Irkutsk. A.

CLASSIC DRAMA If J JAPAN Both Chorus and Music Accompany the Pantomime of the Actor on the Stage. The actors sons of the sons of gen erations of actors passing on as a legacy of great rr5"e to the right to act in these strange "No" plays of , old Japan entered and made their ex its by way of the bridge. At their approach. Gertrude Emerson writes in Asia, unseen hands lifted and held back a curtain of persimmon and iris colored silk that hung at the door of , the dressing room. Their costumes j had wide skirtlike trousers and all the' fires and conflagrations of an autumn i wood or a mountain forest burned in ! the color of the brocades. Sometimes ! they had the streaming white hair of ghosts. . They stamped with their white stockinged feet on the polished floor, which gave out a muffled echo. With their flowing sleeves they hid their faces, turning and swaying in rhythmic dances. AVith their fans they wrote the meaning of their dances in the air the climbing of a mountain path to a forsaken shrine, a gift of water to a weary pilgrim, the picking of herbs, the flight of a bird across the sky, the falling of flowers or of tears. The chorus sang in suppress ed tones, holding" the'r breath inter minably, explaining, now 1h action, now the thoughts passing through the mind of the actor. The musicians beat on their drums mid above all other sounds wailed the ante, thin and trem ulous, piercingly sad, like a lost soul tormented of demons. FROM CABBAGES TO KINGS Writer Impressed by Accumulation of Subject Matter of Every Descrip tion in Print. Perhaps the most valuable instru ment for perpetuation is the printing press, writes Bruce Cunimings in Sci ence Progress. N sooner N tui even i over than it is reported in the daily press, and the newspaper preserved in the British museum for all time. Within the sacred rotunda of th? British museum reading room may b? perused th' novels of Charles tJarvieo. as well sis the great Chinese encyclo pedia of the Emperor Kiang-hi in O.0L.V volumes. In books our knowledge to oat i -rounded up and displayed; yo.i may read a boo!: on a lump of con!, a gr:..-. blade, a ser.worm. on hair combs, cm pets, ships, sticks, sealing wax. c t1 bages, kin.s, cosnrnifs, Kant. A or. thick volume inde d was puh'idtei last year uj on th thorax of n iii l 1 cricket. It would require a l-arnei man to catalogue tin literature that d'-als with such comparatively irivi; ! subjects as the history of th Punch- t sir.il-.7ndy show, or the history of play ing cards. At the present rapid rate of aci-umu lation the time must come when lh: British museum, thousands of ye;ir henee, will occupy an area as lave-- a London; ar.d the Encyclopedia Britar. nica be housed in a building as big a th Crystal palace; an aecnmulatio i of learning to make Aristotle auJ Scaliger turn pule. Airplane Needs Strong Wood. A modern airplane propeller is on'; of the strongest ami most perfect products of man's handicraft. Some airphme engines run rt ETC revolutions i minute and can be gare ' up to 2"X). An engine of this powci would use a nine-foot-six-ineh propel ler and the speed of the blauf ad would be in the neighborhood of OCC miles an hour. Revolving at this terrific rate, tlu slightest imperfection in the won'? from which the propellers are made would tend to disrupt them and causv them to fly to pieces. For this reason onVy the best an-' hardest wood from the heart of th tree is used for propeller blades. It ta.kos 2,000 feet of timber in the rougi. to furnish 200 feet of wood good enough for propellers. Black walnut is the very best kin,! of wood for propeller blades, for, be sides being iuunenseiy tough, it doe:; not splinter when hit by a projectile Xext in the order named, come malmg any, white oak, ash, maple, birch ane cherry. No Alimony From Soldiers. The supreme court of New York sttite has no power to enforce sin or der for alimony against a soldier in the United States army, declared Jus tice Asplnall in the supreme court in Brooklyn in the rase of Mrs. Florence Merriman against Rapley P. Merriman. a private. It is the first decision of its hind here. Justice Aspinnll gi've the opinion In acting upon the request of Mrs. Morriman's attorney, who de manded Merriman bo forced to pay $10 on the first business day of each month. "It is obvious Uit the defend ant could not comply with a direction that he pay $40 on the first business day of each month.' said the justice, "when ?40 is more lhan Ihe rat1 of pay of his grade, and the time of pay ment of a soldier is necessarily very irregular."

"IT'S THE GRANDEST 01 EARTH" SHE SAYS Mrs. Stine Gains Twenty Pounds Taking Tanlac And Troubles Overcome. "I've gained twenty pounds . on four bottles of Tanlac and I think it's the grandest medicine on earth," declared Mrs. Bertha Stine, of Springfield, Neb., a few days ago. "I suffered from stomach trouble, and asthma for a year." she contin ued, "and I can hardly begin to de scribe the agony I went through with. I had no appetite at all and what I did force myself to eat would sour on my stomach and cause gas to form that pressed around my heart until I could hardly breathe. Sometimes it was so bad I would faint away, and I have lain uncon scious from one of these spells for as long as an hour and a half. I suffered with pains from the back of my neck all the way down my spinal column, and ni3r head ached almost constantly. My nerves were on edge, and I could hardly sleep at night; would just roll and toss and then doze off a little toward morning, only to wake up feeling all tired out and not fit for a thing. I I got worse as time went on, and lost, fifteen pounds in a few weeks. Oh, I tell you I was miserable, and just didn't know what to do as nothing seemed to help me. "Finally some one urged me to trj- Tanlac, and I began to improve right away. Tanlac and Tanlac Tablets soon completely restored my health, and T found I'd gained twenty pounds since I began the treatment. Now I am eating any thing I want; meats, vegetables, in fact everything and it all tastes so good, and doesn't hurt me a bit. All the aches and pains are gone. I don't have any more' fainting spells and my nerves are in fine shape. I go to sleep at night early and when I wake up next morning I'm re freshed and full of energy. I just can't say enough in praise of Tan lac. It's the best medicine I ever heard of and I'm glad of this chance to tell what it did for me." Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by F. G. Fricke & Co., in Alvo by Alvo Drug Co., in Avoca by O. E. Copes, in South Bend by E. Sturzeneggcr, jin Greenwood by E. F. Smith, in j Weeping Water by Meier Drug Co., and in Elmwood by L. A. Tyson.
