discoveries, both of vast Importance

veloped after years of research hy

Is expected to enable oil refiners to

200 per cent; the other makes pos
sible the production from, crude
petroleum of toluol, and benzol,
bases for dyed and high explosives,
for which In the past, the United
States and the rest of the world have

Dedicated to People.
Dr. Rlttman has npplled for patents
to prevent the possibility of any mo
nopoly in their use and Will dedicate
them to the American people.
"These processes." Said Secretary Lan
today, "are fraught with the utmost Im
portance. The Standard Oil company has
had a big advantage over the Independ
ents In production of gasoline, having
a patened process obtaining .three times
tha amount of gasoline from a given
quantity of petroleum the independents
now obtain. Independenta producers, aa
a whole, have pever been able even to
approach these results.
Now the federal government, through
tha efforts of Dr. Rlttman proposes to
make free for the uao of all, . a pro
cess confidently expected to increase
their yields of gasoline fully 300 per cent
and perhaps more.' Dr. . Rlttman claims
his process is . safer. , simpler and more
economical.. . These are economic factors
of great Importance. ;
','Wlth a ateadily Iricraasing demand tor
gasoline for automobiles, motor boat
and engines, this fortunate discovery
comes at tho proper time.. It Is but two
years ago that the automobile industry
fearful the supply of gasoline might not
be adequate for Its rapidly expanding
business, offered (100,000 prise for a sub
stitute that would cost less than gaso
line. This new process adds to the hop
that In spite of the wonderful growth in
ths use of gasoline, there may not be
any shortago In the future. I am led
to believe it will not only be of In esti
mable value to refiners commanding but
limited capital, as well aa those, of
wealth, but also to the hundreds of thou
sands of users ot cnuollne. When It
Is realized the gasoline Industry each

Partisanship Is adding fuel to fires of
passion which alrradv are too hot. Cler
gymen should allav prejudice, not In
tensify it. (In this calamitous hour,
denunciation of either aide assumes a
superhuman knowledge of complex pol

of our government In promoting peace,
aggravates a quarrel which we should

pains in both aides,

1 U l I I neither etrenirth nor
energy. There waa always a fear and
dread in my mind, I had cold, nervous,
weak spells, hot flashes over my body.
I had a place in my right side that was
ao sore that I could hardly bear the
weight of my clothes. I tried medicines
and doctors, but they did me little good,
and I never expected to get out again.
I got Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable
Compound and Blood Purifier, and I cer
tainly would have been in grave or in an
asylum if your medicines had not saved
me. But now I can work all day, sleep
well at night, eat anything I want, have
no hot flashes or weak, nervous spells.
All pains, aches, fears and dreads are
gone, my hpuse, children and husband
are no longer neglected, as I am almost
entirely free of the bad symptoms I had
before taking your remedies, and all is
pleasure and happiness in my home."
