Comply Gladly, Says Dickerson.
Kansas City. Mo., Mav 23. "A most
drastic order, said E. W. Dickerson,
president of the Western league, "but
of course we shall comply and gladly.
The Western league would not lose
more than 20 players at the most, as
44 are already in the service.
" "It is a blow to base ball," said
President Muehlebach of the Kansas
City American association club.
"There is only one thine to do, how
ever, and that is to obey the govern,

Texas League Hard Hit.
Dallas, Tex., May 23. A poll of the
Texas league clubs shows that no
club will have even the nucleus of a
base ball team if men between the
ages of 21 and 31 are barred from
playing after July 1. The Fort Worth
team, the league leader, has but two
players over the draft age. Dallas
has but one.

No Let Up Over State.
The state drive continues with un-,
abated vigor. Nearly all the counties
in thet eastern half of the state are
already "over the top" and are marked
with red pins on Chairman Judson's
state map. , Subscription returns in
western counties are slower in being
tabulated because the means of com
munication are fewer.
State Chairman Judson says he has
every reason to believe that the state
will go above its quota in this drive
as it has never gone before. Up to
the present state headquarters here
has received and tabulated a total of
$676,600.13 from counties outside of
Douglas county. And all 'of this is
cash, pledgee being not included. 4

Still another link is added to the
long chain of evidence regarding the
merits of Tanlac. Mrs. Charles L.
White, who resides at 4216 South
Seventeenth street, says:
"Tanlac has made me feel like a'
different woman and I am glad for ,
avarvnnn ti know what a rood medi??
cine I think it is. I have had a spell
of lagrippe every winter for a gopd .
many years. For the past five win-,
ters, especially, these spells have
been extremely bad and always left
me in a very weakened condition..-; r
was constantly coughing and suf f ered
from loss of appetite, nervousness
and frequent headaches. I was trou-,
bled a great deal after eating by the
gaa which formed on my stomach,
pressing on my heart. I have been in '
such a bad condition all the past year
that I couldn't do any of my work.
I fell off from one hundred and
eighteen pounds to one hundred and
five and nothing I did seemed to help
me. ' -':;,; -
"Finally a friend persauded Tne to
try Tanlac and now I can tell every
body, from my own experience,' that
it's just fine. I'm certainly glad I
heeded her advice, for I began to
mend while taking the first bottle.'
My appetite picked up and with it
came an increase in strength and a
letting up of the headaches. I seldom
have a headache now and the cough .
has improved so much that I believe
it will soon be gone for good. . I have
just finished my second bottle and
am going to take more, but I have,'
already been built up wonderfully. .,
I sleep better, get more pleasure; out
of eating and am picking up weight
right along. My husband is now tak-
lng Tanlac for stomach trouble' and
it's helping him fine, and several of
my neighbors are also taking it, all
on account of what it has done for
me." . - -' r i
Mrs. White's trouble was relieved 1
by Tanlac simply because it toned up
her vital organs and enabled hertl

a weakened condition, which oftatv
if too long neglected, develops into
incurable afflictions. Tanlac is found
to be the direct remedy in all such1

of the body that is not benefited by
its helpful action. It bee ifa'f.u?
