hunting trip in the northwest. Dur
ing their stay they visited at Ains
worth and Stuart. They made the
trip both ways in an auto and
found , some pretty hard traveling
over te soft roads, as it rained
good portion of the time. They had
some good hunting, but just what
kind of game they killed we cannot
say. While they had an excellent
time, they are not much in love
with the fleas and mosquitos which
inhabit that portion of the state.
The country is pretty new there as
they only found four places where
people lived in traveling a distance
of something over twenty-five miles
Will Build Next Year
John Oehlerking has been here at
tending the revival meetings being
neiu at tne . allinan church somo
two miles southwest of Murdock, and
visiting with his many friends in
thev-city and surrounding country.

meetings and while in Murdock in
conversation with a representative of
this paper he said he planned to
erect a new home on his farm north

is having a well sunk there now
preparatory to building the residence
next spring. Henry Oehlerking, his
brother, will farm the place during
the coming year.

this case they found-a lighting place

some eighty pounds of fine honev.

SINGE A BOY
Is Relieved Of Twenty Years Trouble
and Gains Twelve Pounds
By Taking Tanlac.
"I have not only gained twelve
pounds since I commenced taking
Tanlac, but I have been completely
relieved of twenty years suffering,"
said Lewis Higgins, a well known
and prosperous farmer who lives at
North Kansas City, Mo., while in
the Owl Drug Store in Kansas City
the other day.
"Yes. sir, Tanlac just knocked
my troubles winding," continued
Mr. Higgins. "and it is the only
medicine I got hold of that did me
any good at all. I had been suffer
inc from rheumatism ever since I
was about seven years old, and
just gradually grew worse as I grew
older, and I finally got to the point
where I wasn't able to walk at
times. The joints in my legs would
swell something awful, and the
misery and pain I underwent is
simDlv more than I will ever be
able to tell. I didn't know what it
was to get a good night's sleep. Fip-
ally my stomach went back on me.
and what I ate would sour and cause
gas. to form so bad I could hardly
get my breath, f tell you I was in
mighty bad shape, and the different
medicines and treatments I had
didn't do me a particle of good.
"My father told me one day that
he had read in the papers where
several people who had been suffer
ing like I did had been helped by
taking Tanlac, and advised me to
give it a trial. Well, ir, it just
beats the world the way I have im
proved since I commenced taking
that medicine. Why, I have only
taken four bottles so far and I can
walk just about as good as I ever
could in my life, and my general
health is better than it has been
since I was a boy. The swelling has
completely left my joints, and I am
able to work every day in the week.
I have actually done more hard work
this summer than I ever did in my
life in the same length of time. My
nerves are as steady as a clock, and
sleep like a log every night. I
have gotten rid of that stomach
trouble, too, and eat three hearty
meals every day and I never suffer
a particle afterwards. I will tell
the world that Tanlac is the best
medicine I ever saw, and I am glad
to have this opportunity to pass the
good word along."
