SAYS HANDS WERE
, ALMOST USELESS
Rheumatism and Other Troubles Be
gan to Disappear After Tak
"There's no mistake about Tanlac
being a real medicine, for nothing
but a real medicine could do what it
has for me," said Mrs. Ilattie Camp
bell, of 1808 Grace St., Omaha, Neb.
"Beginning with indigestion four
years ago," continued Mrs. Campbell,
"my troubles multiplied till my life
became one of constant suffering.
F.vprvthinc I would eat soured on
my stomach and almost tortured me
to death. The gas would press on
my heart at times so I could hardly
hrpathe and I would almost smoth
er. I suffered from heartburn and
had nervous sick headaches and was
so dizzy that I would almost fall ev
ery time I stooped over. I had rheu
matism in mv hands so bad that my
fingers were all bent over, and at
times they would become so numb as
to be almost useless. My appetite
was Door and I fell oft" from one hun
dred and thirty pounds to ninety-
four and nobody will ever know how
much I suffered.
"I was in an awful fix. and while
I tried everything recommended, I
found no relief until my sister and
some of my friends got me to take
Tanlae. While on mv second bottle
my appetite returned, I could eat al
most anything I wanted and my oth
er troubles began to leave me. I
have regained sixteen pounds of my
lost weight and am now able to eat
anything I want without suffering
from gas or indigestion afterwards.
Mv hands and finirers have become
supple again and I hardly notice any
rheumatic pain in them. Those head
aches and dizzy spells are gone and
T have imnroved so much that I
hardly feel like the same person."
Tanlac is sold in l'lattsmouth by
F. O. Fricke and Company and the
leading druggist in every town.
It takes tw-j to make a collisWu,
as well as a contract.

PROTEST OF A FACULTY
The rumpus at the Chatham Epis
copal Institute at Richmond. Ya.,
over the matter o! the delivery of a
lecture on Harriet Beecher Stowe is
regrettable as showing the persis
tence of some of the prejudices and
passions of the days of the 'fiOs which
we had hoped had entirely died out.
The lecture was arranged for and
later the engagement was cancelled
by President Frudcn of the institute
who held that a lecture on Harriet
Beecher Stowe before southern girls
would be out of place. Whereupon
the larger part of the faculty, com
posed in large part of women gradu
ates of northern colleges, and the
It would seem that a discourse on
so eminent a little personage as the
author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
should not be out of place now at
any educational institution in the
country, and that even southern peo
ple themselves could not get a true
historical view of the struggle over
slavery without becoming acquainted
with the standpoint from which the
author of the famous book wrote.
It would be easy, also, to explain and
discuss this standpoint with an ap
preciation at the same time of the
southern view and in a manner and
temper that would not give offense.
At any rate, if President Pruden
considered that a v difficult situation
had been created by the engagement
of the lecturer, he did not improve
it, and seems to have acted from an
excess of caution that appeared ridi
culous even to many of his southern
