V v'Sr stuffs.
Omaha will bun with food speeches today. Three na
tionally known speakers, delegated by the Federal Food ad
ministration, will oprn the campaign with 13 speeches. Three
others will open a campaign in - Lincoln today, and speak
throughout the South Platte country during the rest of the
week. The six speakers arrived in Omaha Sunday afternoon.
PEOPLE AROUSED. O
"The campaign' to bring before the
people of .America the necessity of
aving foods, has been a wonderful
success, said Dr. L. S. Davis of the
University of Indiana, one of the
South Platte speakers. "Last Sep.
tember I was discouraged, an J
thought ence there was no patriotism
in America. It was hard to get a
crowd of 200 people to come out to
hear a food speech or to attend a
Jatriotic meeting of any kind.. In
anuary last, we were 'out but 10
days and spoke to 69,000 people. All
one hat to do now is to announce a
patriotic meeting and the people will
come out. They are Intensely in-
terested and it is great tribute to
FOOD CARDS MAY COME.
"I know now that where people
understand how to make these sub
stitutes in foods ibey are willing, to
make them Here and there they do
not yet understand how to make all
the substitutes requested ? But the
people of America are showing a
wonderful, willingness to co-operate
in this work. -
"Soorie; or later it may be neces
.sary to issue food cards, but it is
hardly necessary yet. When this does
come people will be prepared for" it.
"They., see the , importance of ; the
movement now, and- I do not be
lieve that the issuance of food cards
would meet with any great objection
right'now." ' .
Mrs. Isabel Beecher f Birroing
ham, Ala., who will speak twice at
the Young Women's Christian asso
ciation rcoms today, said on arriving
"Democracy is being tested as to
its ability to unite' the people to a
central purpose.1 do t not talk to
the women about recipls , for , corn

for the work that must be done, the
general principal of saving food and

. r Explaining the record-breaking purchaser! Tanlac by the
Richardson Drug Co. and Sherman & McConnell Drug Co., and
the leading wholesale and retail druggists throughout the coun
try, G. F. Willis, the international distributor of Tanlac, states
that the hundreds of questions now being asked all over Omaha
make it imperative that, some explanation be made to satisfy
public interest. ' '
, Speaking of Tanlache said: "Thou
sands of the most prominent people
in fact, people representing all walks
, of life in the larger cities of the coun.
try, where the celebrated medicine
has been accomplishing such remarka
. ble results, are even more enthusiastic
. over Taniac than Mr. Cooper himself.
"In explanation of this, it should
be stated that Tanlac is believed to
be the first actually direct specific for
catarrhal inflammation of the mucous
membrane and the complications
which follow them.
"Catarrh of the stomach is one of
the most frequent causes of- dyspep
sia and catarrhal inflammation of the
nose and throat leads to , inevitable
complication,1 such as kidney and liver
affections, rheumatism, etc.,
"Show me a man whose eyes are in
flamed, whose sense of smell and
hearing is affected, and I will show
you a man who is suffering from ca-
tarrh. Frequently the lungs become
. iiivuivcu uy me extension m tne ca
tarrhal inflammation or germs to the
lung substance. Specialists concede
this, but it has remained for Tanlac,
the new formula, to provide the rem
edy, as has been so conclusively and
convincinglj proven by, the hundreds
" of thousands who have been relieved
by its use" 1 ' ' ..
At this point Mr. Willis quoted
from one of Mr. Cooper's recent lec
tures, in which he said: ;
. 'Of, all the .distressing conditions
that afflict humanity, catarrh of the
stomach, or what is more commonly
known as chronic dyspepsia, is prob
"ably the most prevalent.sThis most
- universal malady has baffled the med
ical profession for years, and the
most skilled specialists have been un
able to cope with it successfully.
: "Hours might be consumed in de
scribing the sufferings mental and
physical, of the sufferers of chronic
dyspepsia and their failure to here
tofore get relief. A morbid, unreal,
whimsical and melancholy condition
of the mind aside from the nervous
ness' and physical suffering,, is the
' usual condition of the average dys
peptic, and life seem scarcely worth
,,Dyspepsia or indigestion, as the
- case may be, is caused by the taking
of too much food, or unsuitable food,
nd the mucous membrane of the
stomach tecomes irritated, and there
is set up an acute or subacute gastric
.catarrhal' condition' which prevents
' ' the proper digestion of the food.
is crystalizing fast, but it is a ques
tion whether it will crystalize fast
enough. The lack of the spirit, how
ever, does not lie here in the central
west, if you wish to know the truth."
Everett Colby of New Jersey, one
of the commission that investigated
food, conditions-in France and the
allied countries, said:
, "The 'situation . is positively des
perate. We have the food and can
mobilize it, but it is a question
whether we can mobilize it m time.
People do not begin to realize how
serious the matter is. As the war
stands at the present time, we're
licked, that's all there is to it. We
must, get food across in large quan-
Kiti - and- qiy.
Down to Five Day Margin.
"Pershing has been . tpld that" he
would be furnished, with a food supply
to give them a 90 day margin. When
we were over there his army was part
of the time down to a five-day margin,
and that is altogether to close a
margin for an army." (
Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, president
of Leland Stanford uuiversiay, said,
"When one realizes how desperate
are "the allies and our. own troops
abroad for supplies, one can realize
how imperative was Garfield's order
We may look for some awful re
verses, before the people of the
country become thoroughly awake to
the need of thorough co-operation in
every phase of the war. The argu
ment cannot be made in a minute.
Unless people go tut of the meetings
vowing that the will not taste another
piece of bacon until the end of the
war, we had failed in our purpose."
The three speakers who open their
campaign in Omaha today, will cover
the North Piatt county. Their
meetings in. Omaha today are sched

nothing more" than1 an uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach, with a certain
amount of depression, headache, loss

be also accompanying intestinal symp
