Hat there was a Hn.e when Mr
Bryan wa more enthusiastic about
Mr. Cox, possibly because the lienor
;:e:tion was not then in his Yni id.
He was addressing thi PennsylvHn!i
legislature on May 13, 1912, and ho
liclJ up Clovernoc Cox as an example
of i itccess in state ; jniinistrat io 1.
And this is what Mr. Bryan said:
"Look at (Jovernor Cox nf Ohio.
There is a reformer who asked thirty-
ix reforms and got thirty-six."
This testimony, as a matter of fair
ness, may le introduced now to on
set Mr. Brvan's present resentment
of Governor Cox's nomination. Du-
Iuth Herald.
Mr. Harding's acceptance speech
will be especially disappointing, ve
imagine, to the American soldier. No
reference to our participation in the
greatest war in history appears in
this speech until just at the close.
Kven then, nobody could tell fn.m
the context whether we had won or
lost the war. Acknowledgment is
tendered of "sacrifices made" ami
"sufferings endured", but that is the
inevitable cost of war. Our soldiers
are told that they proved themselves
worthy sons of worthy sires, but that
same proof has been given under van
quished as well as victorious arms.
It does seem as if Mr Harding
might have conceded that, in associa
tion with our allies, we had won the
war. It may be that partisan malev
olence was reluctant even to render
such an indirect tribute to the Wil
son administration as would be im
plied in a statement of victory. B-it
should hatred of Wilson go to such
lengths as to deny a simple assertion
of what the American soldier did?

"My stomach .has given me trouble
for years," 6he added, ' 'Idahnabened

spent so much money for medicines
without benefit I was all out of heart.
For eight years I had been unable
to eat any meats and vegetables even
caused me trouble. Cereals, milk
toast and the lightest kind of dieds
oftentimes caused gas to form on my
stomach, keeping me in pain and
misery for hours. I often suffered
with heartburn and the gas pressing
around my heart caused it to beat
so hard and fast it was all I could
do to get my breath. I had raging
headaches nearly every day and got
so dizzy when I stooped over or was
going up or down stairs I felt like
I was going to pitch forward and
had to catch hold of something to
keep from falling. I had awful
pains in the small of my back and
under my shoulder blades that hurt
me so when I leaned over I could
hardly straighten up. At times I bad
rheumatism in my shoulders and
arms so bad it was all I could do to
use them. I slept but little, for I
was constantly in pain and very rest
less and when I got up in the morn
ings I often felt worse than, when I
went to bed. I just kept getting
worse in spite of all I could do.
"So many people ' with troubles
like mine were praising Tanlac in
the papers. I sent for a bottle and
the first three or four days I took it
convinced me that what I had read
about it was the truth. Before I fin
ished the first bottle gas stopped
foimrng on my stomach, those awful
pains left me and I began to feel
hungry. I can now eat most any
thing in reason and my stomach
troubles me so little afterwards I
hardly notice it. My head aches no
more. I am entirely free from pain
and have no more dizzy spells and
am able to get plenty of sound rest
ful sleep every night. Tanlac has
done me a world of good, so much in
fact I want my statement published
for the benefit it may be to others."

of oil by. -Hie navy from the Associat
ed Oil company were "seizures only
in a technical sense," according to a
tatement authorized today by the
executive committee of the company,
which added that the question of
prices for oil delivered to the navy
up to June 30 had been adjusted
with Admiral Koontz at Washington,
and that a satisfactory adjustment
of the question as to the price the
navy is to pay for fuel oil in the
future was anticipated.
Six destroyers last Monday took
from a loading plant of the company
at San Francisco, 500,000 gallons of
fuel oil which the company had de
clined to deliver at the navy's price
of $1.72 a barrel. Regarding this
and similar incidents the company
statement said that to protect its
claims for the market prices the com
pany had "recognized the demands
instead of the ordinary purchase

that the facilities of the company
