Washington, Aug.
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
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.

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.

Mrs. Stine Gains Twenty Pounds
Taking Tanlac And Troubles
"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."
