asks the Associated Press to con
vey'to America an appeal in be

Similar ommittees, formerly
working in London, Paris, The
Hague and Berne, have been
forced to abandon their work ow
ing to difficulties of obtaining
food for the prisoners.
The funds of the Copenhagen
tommittee are nearing exhaustion
and the committee cannot send
more than 20,000 parcels month
ly. The committee declares that'
unless these funds are received
even this trifling relief must end.

GAINS 40 POUNDS
IN PAST 60 DAYS
"I Never Spent Money to Bet
ter Advantage," He Says
After Taking Tanlac.
Michael O'Brien, produce dealer
at 415 North 15th street and a resi
dent of Omaha for thirty-five years,
is now an ardent champion1 of Tan-
"It may sound unreasonable,"
said Mr. O'Brien while in Sherman
& McConnell's drug store, recently,
"and some people who don't know
me may not believe it, but I have
actually gained forty pounds in the
past sixty days by taking this Ten
iae. I had fallen off as a result of
a bad stomach and other troubles
until I was amazingly thin. When
I began taking Tanlac I weighed
orilv one hundred and twenty-five
pounds and I now weigK one hun
dred and sixty-five. About a year
and a half ago I began suffering
from stomach trouble. I could eat
nothing scarcely and had a pain in
and about my stomach all the time,
whether I ate or not. I was badly
constipated, had frequent headaches
and was so dizzy at times I would
have to sit down to keep from fall
ing. I hardly had strength and en
ergy to look after my business and
was all tired out before the day was
over. My nerves were so upset that
I could hardly sleep and I havs
walked the floor many a night,
never getting any rest. ,
"Well, to make a long story short,
I was almost completely knocked
out and ready to grab at anything
there was a chance of getting any
benefit from. So I made up my
mind to try Tanlac and see if it
would help me like others said it
had them, and now I'm" ready to
say I have never spent money to
better advantage. I never felt much
improvement, however, until I was
well onto my third bottle. Then
my appetite came with a rush and
I could eat a man's meal, and have
been at it ever since. I have taken
six bottles and have not only
been relieved of all pain and mis
ery, but have regained all my lost
weight forty pounds. I can lay
down at night now and sleep like a
child and work hard all day at my
business without feeling tired ex
cept in the natural way. I am full
of energy and go all the time now
and really feel better than I have
in a long time. I am glad to have
everybody know what Tanlac has
done for me." ,
