About all a nickle :s good for now

Instead of faking the bull by the

"I don't believe all this high cost

There are indications that the

there is reason to believe that the
day will come.
The refusal by the house military
affairs committee to incluue the pro
vision for universal and compulsory
military training in the army hill
can have only one meaning. That
meaning is that, if the committee
has' its way, there will be no legis
lation at this season to put into ef
fect the will of the people for the
creation of an army of defense to in
clude all the able-bodied manhood of
America on the most democratic,
economical and effective basis con
ceivable the readiness of every
American of age to respond imme
diately to his country's call in time
No one will bo deceived by the
committee's transparent expedient in
voting to make training the subject
for separate legislation, to be fram
ed by a committee of seven after an
investigation into the financial and
economic aspects of the plan.
This counter-proposal, even as
suming it to be sincere, can have
only the effect of postponing an im
perative issue to the next session at
the earliest unless, Indeed, the op
ponents of universal training do not,
by the next session, devise new
means of obstruction. .
It is now the patriotic duty of the
friends of the great reform in our
defensive system to rally their forces
and fight tire issue out on the floor
of the house. In no period of peace
has the necessity for defensive pre
paredness been so emphatic and so
urgent as it is at this time of uni
versal international unrest. The
military necessity for the training
of our entire manhood for the de
fense of the country is supplement
ed by the great opportunity for
training for .the purposes of peace,
which ia an important feature of
the proposed legislation.
The time to prepare for the col
losal events of 1917 was in 1914 and
not in 1917. Had universal train
ing been made the basis of our de
fensive system In 1914, we would
have saved vast amounts of money
and taken advantage of priceless op
portunities by being able to put a
powerful army in the field without
the' delay Involved in the mobilization-of
our man-power from the mass
of our untrained citizenship.
We have paid far too dearly for
the lesson of 1917' to forget it in
1920. New York Evening Mail.

LOST 60 POUNDS
Troubles Disappear After Taking
Tanlac and She is Regaining
Her Lost Weight.
"Anybody who geis the wonderful
relief I have experienced ought to
certainly praise the medicine that
did it." said Mrs. Cora Scott, living
at 3002 Lindsey Ave., Omaha, Neb.
"Before I took Tanlac," she con
tinued, "I was suffering from a
number of ailments and was up all
hours of the night feeling so nervous
and miserable I couldn't half sleep
"My stomach was all out of order
and my appetite was so poor that I
could hardly eat a thing and suffer
ed more or less all the time from in
digestion. I was badly constipated
and had dizzy spells and awful head
aches. I also suffered from catarrh
of the head and had rheumatism in
both legs and the upper part of both
arms, which was very . painful. -1
had been in this condition almost a
year and during this time I lost six
ty pounds. Although I felt tired and
worn out at night, I couldn't get any
sleep and would always get up in
the morning feeling worse than when
I went; to bed. I. had too much will
power to give up, but it was all I
could do to drag around and do my
"I took so many different kinds
of medicines without getting any
relief that I had begun to think
nothing could help me. But I found
I was mistaken soon after I . began
taking Tanlac, for I began to feel
better with my first few doses. My
appetite is fine now and my condition
has improved so I can eat anything
I want without suffering a bit from
indigestion. The catarrh has left
me entirely and the rheumatism sel
dom bothers me at all. I am regain
ing my lost weight and am so much
stronger that I can work from morn
ing till night and . then go to' bed
md sleep like a child."
Tanlac is sold in Plattsniouth by
F. G. Fricke and Company and the
leading druggist in every town.
