FiUE BIX r mm AMERICAN TROOPS ON GERMAN BORDER A T MOSELLE RIVER Battle Line Now Runs From Hattonville on North to Pagay, Closing Mouth of St. Mihiel Sack and Trapping All Germans Remaining There; Important Railways Re stored to France. The Aimfican First army has carried out the initial task assigned t. it t level ins; of the famous St. Mihiel salient in Lorraine. In a little isiore than 2 1 hours not only had the work been accomplish ed but Central Pen. hint's men had all the tjv!i, villages and strategic .:.iiitns in the sector within tiieir hands and were landing on the bank of the Moselle river at Pagny IiM.king' across th stream into Ger man territory. And the southern outer fortifications of Metz, the great Her ma n stronghold in Lor raine, were only four miles distant. Large numbers of Hermans had h"-n taken prisoner more than 12, 000 had Iscmi counted and others v.trf still on tlitir way back to the prisoners' cages and many guns j;nd machine imitis and great quanti ties of ammunition and other war stores were in American hands.

In addition, along the eastern side of the heights north of Hattonville tin; Americans hn v- debouched from the hi'l regicn and are astride the railroad running from Commercy to Verdun.

From the straightened line growing out of the obliteration of the St. Mihiel salient the Amer icans now are aligned on territory from which it i3 possible to get be hind both the Meuse and Moeselle rivers and thus make null the re ported plans of the Germans to stabilize their front along the Mouse should they be unable to hold the allies in the west in check. Already allied airmen are heavily bombing the Moselle region arounil Metz and its outlying fortifications, having dropped many tons of bombs on the strategic railways leading: from the great fortress, and it seem-' ingly is not without reason to ex pect that with apparent supremacy in the air Metz and the surrounding country henceforth is to be sadly harassed by the allied flying squad rons. Meanwhile the maneuvers on the west front around Cambrai and St. Quentin should not be lost sight of hy reason of the prc-sent American offensive. Here the British and French daily are enlarging their gains iu the process of outflanking and capturing these two important towns which are all but within their grasp. Farther to the north in Flanders the British also are keep ing up their encroachments iu the -eion of La Bae and Armentieres. both of which place. are imperilled. THIS CHRISTMAS BUSINESS NOW The National Council of Defense, has issued a challenge to the com mercial interest and to the citizens of the country, calling their atten tion to the matter of doing their shopping and sending of Christmas o resents, beginning on October first, and using the three months for the matter, and not crowding it into the weeks just proceeding Christmas.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This is not only one of the best and most efficient medicines for coughs, colds, croup and whooping cough, but is also pleasant 'to take, which is important when a medicine must be given to young children. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been in use for many years and has met with much favor wherever its good qualities have become known. Many mothers have given it their unqualified endorsement. Wm. Scruby, Chillicothe, Mo., writes, "I have raised three children, have al ways ued Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and found it to be the best for coughs, colds and croup. It is pleasant to take. Both adults and children like it. My wife and I have always felt safe from croup with it in the house." Chamber lain's Cough Remedy contains no opium or other narcotic. W. A. ROBERTSON, Lawyer.

T0B0LT ASTONISHED AT RESULTS OF TAN LAC GAINS 20 POUNDS. "Some wonderful things happen in this world, and the way Tanlac has restored my health and built me up is one of them." said Mrs. Paul fobolt of 916 California Ave., Butte, Mont., in one of the most interest ing and remarkable statements yet published in connection with the Master Medicine. "My trouble started about two years ago," she continued, "and I have simply been a nervous wreck ever since until now. Last January I went to the hospital where I was told that my whole system had be come poisoned by an affected ap pendix, that an operation was my only hope and it was doubtful if this would save me. So I arranged to have my children cared for, in case I should not see them again, and submitted to the operation. Well, the operation was done with so much skill, and I was so carefully nursed that I finally got out of the hospit al, and was home with my husband and children again. Then I picked up wonderfully for a little more than a month when I began having ter rible pains in my back over my kid neys. My appetite leu me, anu nothing tasted right. I wao consti pated, had fearful headaches, and was so nervous I could hardly sleep. I fell off until I weighed less than a hundred pounds and was so weak that it was an effort for me to get about at all. "Finally my husband suggested. that I try Tanlac, as it was being so much talked about, and the re sults have astonished us both. I couldn't see much improvement on my first bottle, but with the second my appetite got better, I commenc ed to feel improved and wa3 sur prised when I got on the scales, to find that I had gone up to one hundred and eight pounds. Well, the third bottle did wonders for me, relieving me of all pain and head ache and making nT want to eat up everything. I now weigh one hund red and eighteen pounds, making a gain of more than twenty pounds on three bottles, and I'm wondering what my fourth bottle which I have just started taking, will do for me. I sleep like a healthy child, never waking at night at all and feel like I could tat five or six meals a day. I dismissed my hired help, four weeks ago, after eighteen months steady service, and since then I have done all my own housework, cook ing and everything, I have no more dull, drowsy bad feelings and life is a pleasure to me. I can't praise Tanlac enough for what it has done for me." Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by P. G. Fricke & Co., in Alvo by Alvo Drug Co., in Avoca by O. E. Copes, in South Bend by E. Sturzenegger, in Greenwood by E. F. Smith, in Weeping Water by Meier Drug Co., in Elmwood by L. A. Tyson, in Mur dock by II. V. McDonald and in Eagle, by F. W. Bloomenkamp." Good for Biliousness. "Two years ago I suffered from frequent attacks of stomach trouble and biliousness. Seeing Chamber lain's Tablets advertised I concluded to try them. I improved rapidly."
