Argentine Writer Blses to Give the
United States Advice Would
Have Us Kenounee It.
Buenos Aires. Nov. IS. The Unit
ed States is ud vised to renounce the
Monroe doctrine and enter the
eague of nations. In an article by
Wenceslas Tello, formerly professor
of the United University of Buenos
Aires, published In La Razon today.
and entitled "Argentinism and Mon
roeism." The writer characterizes
'Monroeism" as "clear imperialism
the obfusion of a people in the
face of the twentieth century facts."
"With the convening of the league
of nations." he continues, "the North
American people soon will realize it
has no thinkers and no national
policy acceptable before the world.
It is not enough to say. 'America is
mine.' Japan coiuu say. mina is
mine. England could say, 'Half the
world is mine. France could pro
claim that. Switzerland and Belgium
belong to her.
With the existence of the league
it nations, the North American pro
tectorate over South American coun
tries is needed less than ever. Ar
gentinism is an expression of the
universal political desire to form a
Iramatic league of nations. Monroe-
sm is a gravf imperialism which no
nonarchial form of government
vould dare to proclaim and the
-nore so because of its impotency to
put it into practice.
"North America went into the war
for the liberty of the seas, but ch
ained the opposite result. It went
:nto the war to achieve the self-de-
ermination of peoples, but it has
ontradicted itself. It pursues a
jolicv of aggrandizement and
narches to its decadence unless it
'-.alts in time. And all this is for
'ack of thinking."
The author concludes -with this
uiggestion to the United States:
"Permit us to give you counsel to
enounce your Monroeism and you
vill have the friendship of Latin
Vmerica. Enter the present league
f nations in oroer to secure
lwn fundamental democratization.
n this matter Argentinism will inin-
Tie with the North American policy
n homage to universal fraternity."
SERVES MEALS FOR 17 CENTS

Frederick A. Wallis. immigration
commissioner on Ellis island, invited
ioubters on a tour of culinary in
spection, just to show how they do

ber of the hotel men. who say they

of tavern fare, accepted the commis
sioner's invitation, with the idea of
infusing some of the Ellis island
method into the conduct of their own
"For particulars," said the commis
sioner, "see MacGowan."
The secret of reducing the costli
iness of provender as it appears,
steaming and succulent, on the din
ner table, is a mystery, but Mac
Gowan, D. T. MacGowan. caterer on
the island, is on the inside. His ex
planation runs: "Purchases on a
lowest bid basis, quantity, production
and profits never more than 1.93 per
cent on the monthly investment; re
sult, 17 cent dinners."
And when someone interposed that
MacGowan "couldn't serve a 'regu
lar meal for 17 cents," he exhibited,
as a sample menu, the following:
Breakfast: Rice with milk stewed
prunes, bread and butter and coffee
with two lumps of sugar to the cup.
Dinner: English beef soup with
barles. Irish stew with vegetables,
tapioca pudding and coffee.
Supper: Lamb hash, green pep
pers, bread and butter, blackberry
jelly, coffee and tea.

IT HAS NO EQUAL
Had to Use Two Canes to Get Around
Before Taking Tanlac, but
Rheumatism Gone Now
"I made a statement soon after
Tanlac set me right two years ago.
and as 1 am still enjoying fine health,
I want to go on record again, this
time to let my friends know how
thoroughly the medicine did its work
for me." said Cornelius O'Connor, of
1312 Q street, Lincoln, Neb., a few
days ago. '
Mr. O'Connor, who is now retired,
was a locomotive engineer for thirty
two years. He helped to construct
the Chicago. Burlington & Quincy
and for a long time pulled passenger
trains number 1 and 2 over this
road between Omaha and Lincoln.
"Before 1 took Tanlac." said Mr.
O'Connor, "I had suffered from rheu
matism for six years. My legs were
so lame and painful that I had to
use two canes in order to get about
at all and the joints in my arms aud
hands ached so bad I could hardly

.strength until 1 couldn't get as far
as one block without stopping to
rest. 1 tried everything 1 ever heard
of for rheumatism, but nothing
helped me a pat tide.
"One day an old railroad man
and friend of mine told me how
Tanlac had helped him and advised
me to give it a trial. Well, I have
felt thankful a thousand times that
I took his advice. Before I finished
the second bottle my pains had eased
up so I could get around better.
While on the third bottle my im
provement was especially noticeable.
My pains left me and I was walking
better and gaining strength every
day. I just kept taking Tanlac and
improving right along and in the
following Spring I went to the coun
try on a fishing trip. On starting
home I left my walking sticks at a
farm house and have never needed
them since for I have had no signs
of rheumatism to this good day. I
have trained twenty-four nounds in

and feel fine in every way. 1 don't
