"For about two years before I be
gan taking Tanlac my health was so
bad that I lost -two, or three hours
from my work nearly every day,"
said C. H. Melton, a construction
foreman for the Western .Union Tele
graph Co., Omaha, Neb. Mr. Mel
ten's home is at 3336 Tracy avenue,
Kansas City, Missouri, and it was
while he was in Kansas City one
week-end on business for his com
pany that he made this statement to
the Tanlac representative. .
"For 20 years before I started tak
ing Tanlac I suffered from stomach
trouble and nervous indigestion." he
continued, "and my condition kept
getting worse until about five years
ago I was in such awful shape that
recrly everything I ate caused me
tcrribls suffering. I had bursting
headaches, and gas would form on
riy stomach at times that I could
hardly breathe, and felt heavy ind
riuffy at the time. I suffered from
constipation and got so weak and run
i'owii that I could hardly drag about
:ind iHimctimes it looked like I would
lust have to give up my work en
tirely. "A friend of mine, who had tried
Tanlac, recommended it to me so
strongly that I began taking It. Well,
rir. in three days' time I could tell
that I had at last struck the right
medicine, for my appetite began to
improve, my stomach got better and
I vas feeling built up in every way.
I have now taken five bottles of Tan
lac. eat anything I want, have gained
II pounds in weight, and never have
a pain in my stomach. I have almost
forgotten that I ever had a headache
and I am not constipated any more,
and in short. I'm not the same man
and was never in better health In my
life. Yes, sir, of course, I can recom
mend Tanlac and I am glad when
ever I get the opportunity to say a
good word for it."

Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 28. -Returns
tonight from nearly one-half
of the voting precincts of Winnipeg
forecast the re-election of Mayor
Charles Y. Gray over S. J. Farmer,
candidate of the labor party. Gray's
vote in 61 of the 125 precincts was
8,061, while Farmer polled 5,407
votes. Farmer was supported by the
labor element which indorsed the
general strike last spring.
Gray ran on the citizens' ticket.
Returns from the aldermanic con
tests indicated that th labor candi
dates were generally running behind
the citizens' ticket's candidates. The
labor candidates had promised that if
elected would oust all city employes
who were appointed last spring to
replace employes, including firemen
and policemen who. went on strike
and were discharged.

Washington, Nov. 28. A con

The brilliant speech of tribute
was concluded with itiese words by
Congressman McFaddcn of Pennsyl
vania, the author:
"I think when impartial history
gets written, on a plane equal to any
of them, perhaps on a plane above
them all, will shine the fame of him
I would honor today as the incarna
tion of America's initiative and
genius of origin and administration
who perhaps more than any living
man made it possible that America
should strike and can strike in over
whelming numbers, strike till the
final crisis was past and the final
victory won Enoch Herbert Crowder."

DOINGS IN COUNTY COURT.
From Saturday' Dally.
This morning a hearing was had
on determination of heirship in the
Agnes Root estate on the petition of
Jesse A. Rjot, husband of the de

heirs of the estate.
The license department of the
court yesterday afternoon issued a
marriage license to Roscoe Sill of
Bradshaw, Nebraska, and Miss Elean

'Tis a curiou3 plight in which Ne
braska republicans find themselves.
They have a governor, elected last
year by a majority truly magnificent,
ar.d yet they want no more of him.
Nor, looking about, do they appear
to find promising substitute mater
ial. Not in recent year has Nebraska
seen a governor facing o contest for
a second term nomination agai:i.st
such odds as appear today. Half of
the republican state representatives
have participated in an anti-MeKel-vie
conference. An overwhelming
majority of the republican state com
mittee is reported opposed to McKel
vie's renomination. State officers,
whose own re-election fortunes are
inseparable from the head of the
ticket, conceal scarcely at all their
hope that some man other than the
present incumbent be the republican
candidate next year.
Meanwhile, there is a galaxy of
prospective candidates: R. B. How
ell and A. L. Sutton of Omaha, Don
Love of Lincoln and others. But of
all, only Sutton and Love are quoted
as being in a receptive mood. And
who are they? Love was mayor of
Lincoln a number of years ago, un
known to the state at large. Sutton
was the republican nominee in 19t5,
when he ran 40.000 odd votes be
hind state prohibition, although pro
hibition was the head, tail and the
body of his campaign nag.
And not one of thee would satisfy
