', Review Impressive Spectacle.
A cold March wind and occasional
squaiis ot rain made the scene more
impressive as the brigade, in full
marching equipment, swept by at
company front, each saluting like
clock work, while bands played mu
sic wnicn swelled and softened in the
gusty wind. , t
Secretary Baker lifted his hat to
each regimental flag as it was lowered
in: salute and occasionally spoke to
general rershmg, who stood beside
This brigade from, the first division
to put foot in France was composed
of men seasoned in training under
summer aid winter skies and inured
to mud and cold under all conditions
. of campaigning. They were" the first
in the trenches and the first to suffer
casualties. Under the weight of full
field equipment, from trench tools to
extra tools, steel helmeted, tanned
and fit, the 'soldiers stepped swingiy
through the sticky mod that was al
most too much for the mules who
drew the one-pounders and the
. wheeled kitchens. '
Complimented By Pershing.
- It was the first time that an entire
. brigade which had been in action had
been reviewed and the secretary
complimented the general command
ing and the colonels of the various
units. When the review was con
cluded, the brigade and commissioned
officers assembled in a semi-circle and
were presented in a body to the war
secretary by General Pershing in a
brief address, in which he compli
mented their record of fitness and ef
ficiency. t Secretary Baker, with bared head
in the cold wind, told the officers
they were tj pical American soldiers
and said they, were "the point of the
wedge of the army which the whole
American people is driving into the
ranks of their adversary." The offi
cers then formed in line and each
shook hands with the secretary as his
name was announced. The secretary
acknowledged each greeting and when
some acquaintance approached,, he
added s personal word or two. ,
. Know What War Is. '
General Pershing showed griiifica
tion 4 the splendid condition an-j ap
pearance of the brigade and re
marked: "These men have been there and
know what it is. You can tell .nat
by the way they throw out their
-chests as they swing by." "
When the review was over the
brigade disbanded into units and
marched back to the camps. The
secretary, General Pershing and his
staff and the other generals trudged
down the hill through the mud ta the
x .waiting motor cars. : ... ,, .. v
Secretary Baker's day was a full
ne, as he covered several hundred
kilometers in his automobile. Emly
n the morning he drove to the Ver
dun region to a spot from which Fort
Douaumont was visible. He saw the
activities behind the French lines and
a long artillery wagon train and
marching troop's. ,
On the way the secretary stopped
wherever American troops were bil
leted, the organizations turning out
lor inspection.
. The soldiers were questioned re
garding details of food, billets and
equipment, and the secretary often
went into the billets to gef a personal
Tastes Sammies' Food. !
The only complaint registered was
about a scant food ration, which was
tound to be due to the temporary
, change in the stations of the units af
fected. Once the secretary1 party
met a traveling kitchen. The secre'
tary left his-automobile and had a
taste of the soup and food. His com
ment was "very good." .
.During the day Secretary Baker
visited the French divisional com
, mander, who complimented the
American trocos. savin? h hit rau.A
the attention of his men to the ex
peditious and snappy way the Amer
icans unloaded and assembled their
artillery. ...
On iTuesday, finding himself in the
vicinity pf ascertain unit, the secre
tary sent for a fellow Ohioan, Car
lisle Babcock of Cleveland, a private
in the marine corps and a son of a
personal friend. After a brief talk
the two were photographed together.

Liberty Bonds Only Active
Feature of Market; Final
. Hoar Brings Out Mod- S
y erate Activity.
New Tork, March 21. Another brisk ln
qulry for Liberty bonds was tha dlstin
gulshlng feature of today's session of the
siock exenange. Dealings In stocks dl
mlnished steadily until' the final hour when
moderate activity aet in under the lead of
Industrials and oils.
These shares were favored because of an
advance in crude oil prices and intimations
rrom Washington that the new achedule
for steel and iron would in all probability
eliminate existing Inequalities.
Texas company was foremost among
the oils at an extreme gain of t comta.
and United States Steel was roused Cut of
Its previous torpor, gaining almost a point
on relatively neavy accumulation.
Other substantial gains were confined to
sucn specialtlea as American Car. Inactive
equipments and Industrial Alcohol, Dis
tillers' securities and Malting preferred at
aavances ot 1 to 3 points.
Early pressure upon rails, motors and
tobaccos was partly overcome ln ths gen
era! ' rally of the close, but aome gains,
notably that of Unloif Pacific, proved only
temporary. Sales amounted to 260.000
Official seizure of Holland's ships, the
Teutonic bombardment on the western front
and a naval engagement in which the Ger
man forces seem to have been worsted, were
among the deterrent developments of the
Liberty Issues again constituted the sole
features of the bond market, second 4a gain
ing almost I per cent, but reacting sharply
later. Sales, par value, aggregated 86,650,

In a statement outlining the negotia
tions which preceded the requisition,
President Wilson pointed out that
the permanent agreement with the
Dutch government had been blocked
by Germany, despite the little king
dom's acute need of foodstuffs, for
which the agreement provided. A
temporary agreement then was ne'
gotiated to tide 5ver trie emergency
and that, too, was held up by Prus
sian diplomacy.
"Although the reason never was
formally expressed," the president
said, "it was generally known that
the Dutch ship owners feared lest
their ships should be destroyed by
German submarines. That this fear
was not wholly unjustified, has un
happily been shown by the recent act
ot the German government in sink
ing the Spanish ship Sardinero. out
side the danger zone, when carrying
a cargo 01 gram lor Switzerland, and
after the submarine commander had
ascertained this fact by an inspection
of the ship's papers."

Take it glass of Salts to Flush

the kidneys, they become overworked;
get sluggish; clog up and cause all
sorts of distress. . particularly back
ache and misery in the kidney region;
rheumatic twinges, severe headaches,
acid stomach, constipation, torpid
liver, sleeplessness, bladder and uri
nary irritation.
The moment your back hurts or kid-
Ineys aren't actjng right, or if bladder
foothers you, get about-four ounces of
Jad Salts from any good pharmacy;
take a tablespoonful in a glass of .wa
ter neiore breakfast tor a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to flush clogged kid
neys and stimulate them to normal
activity; also to neutralize the acids
in the urine so it no longer irritates,
thus ending bladder disorders. -

Fireman on Union Pacific Says!
Tanlac Has Restored
Him to Health.
Statement aftwfetatement is now
being made by the people of Omaha
in connectionwith Tanlac, the Pre
mier Preparation, which is accom
plishing such remarkable results
throughout the United States and '
Canada. Ira W. Polsley, a well known
fireman ! on the Union Pacific rail-
roadwho lives at 2033 Elnr'atreet,
called at Sherman & McConnell's drug
store, Sixteenth and Dodgfj streets,
recently and in relating his exjjer-
ience with the medicine, said:
"Tanlac certainly is a real medi
cine, for nothing but a real medicine
could do what a few bottles did for
me, and I'm glad to tell everybody
about it. I always felt strong and well
until about six months previous to
the time I began taking Tanlac. Then
somehow or other I got all otlt of fix
and my good health was fast slipping
away from me. At the time my trou
ble started I weighed one hundred and ,
forty pounds, but it wasn t long until
I lost several pounds and just felt
tired and worn-out all the time. My
annetite was very uoortend mv food
failed to give me proper nourishment
and 1 couldn t- work long without j
feeling exhausted. My liver was slug-"
Fish and I had no ambition or energy,
often suffered from headache and
was nervous and restless all the time.
I don't know what all did ail me, but
I just felt miserable and unfit for
work all the time. v '
"I' hardly knew what to do until
a Union Pacific engineer told me
now Tanlac had helped him and ad
vised me to try it. So I took his ad
vice and now I'm glad to come out
for Tanlac, because it proved to be
just whst I needed. The first few
doses made a big difference in my .
feelings. My appetite soon came bat if
to me and I could eat and enjoy any
thing set before me.' When I finished
my third bottle I found I was not
only restored to full vigor and health,
but that I had actually gained ten
pounds in weight besides, and I'm
now even heavier than I was before
my trouble first began. My tired.
worn-out feelings are gone and I have
energy, ambition and strength to do
my work wit n ns much ease as I ever
could. Tanlac certainly is a wonder
ful medicine, and it was lucky for mc
that I took it."
There are thousands of people who
complain of feeling nervous and run- .
down. They are not sick exactly, but
feel tired and good for nothing most
of the time. They need something to
rjuna tnem up ana tnrow 011 the
symptoms of this weaTcened, debilitat
ed condition.
The system, besides being nurified
by Tanlac, is toned up and invigorat
ed as the medicine, aside, from fssist
ing the blood, reinvigorates the con
stitution, overcoming as it seems to
quickly do, nervousness, indigestion,
non-assimilation of tha food, head
aches, backache, kidney complaints,
general debility and many other ail-,
ments that are so common to the
thousands of . half-sick, depress f
men and women. y
Tanlac is sold in Omaha bv Sher-
man & McConnell Drug Company

Drug Co., 16th and Harney streets;
Harvard Pharmacy, 24th and Farnam
streets; Northeast corner 19th and
