Wants Everybody to Know
'What Tanlac Did For
"I don't believe there's any med
icine on earth can equal this Tan
lac," recently declared W. J. Rich
ardson, a well known switchman on
the Rock Island, living at 60 South
Fifteenth St, Kansas City Mo.
"I've grained thirty-seven pounds
since taking it and I feel stronger
than I have for many years," he
continued. "I suffered for a long
time from stomach. trouble and in
digestion and I tell you I sure had a
time of it. I didn't have any appe
tite and what little I did force my
self to eat would sour and form
gas that would get up around my
heart and smother me so I could
hardly get my breath. I had ter
rible headaches and dizzy spells
every now and then, and I had such
a pain across the small of my back
that it was all I could do to get up
when I sat down. I just couldn't
get a good night's rest and I lost a
lot of time from work on account
of the way I felt. Of course I took
a lot of medicine, but no matter
what it was nothing did me any
"A few weeks ago I decided to
try Tanlac and I hadn't taken one
bottle when I began getting hungry
and then I found what I ate didn't
sour and form gas any more. Now,
I'm eating anything I want and
never suffer from indigestion. I
sleep sound all night long and get
up in the morning feeling like a
two-year-old and ready to tackle
any kind of work. Yes, sir, I sure
do think a lot of Tanlac. I've rec
ommended it to several of my
friends and whenever they have
given it a fair trial, it's benefited
them just the same as me. As far
as my own case is concerned, if
anybody doubts what I say just tell
Vem to come to see me and I'll prove
what Tanlac has done."
Tanlac is sold in Omaha at all

Cinches Right to Play In
World's Series Next
Cincinnati, Sept 16. By beating
New York today before a crowd
of 18,000 people, the Cincinnati club
cinched the pennant in the Nation
al league, the first which it has
ever wop in that organization. The
Reds hau- seven more games to
play and even if they should lose
all of them while the Giants won
all of the 11 games remaining on
their schedule, the local club would
finish one game ahead. The score
today was 4 to 3. Ruether pitched
the full game for the Reds and was
hit hard, being frequently saved by
sensational support. Toney pitched
well for New York after the first
inning, but his support was faulty.
He was taken ou,t'in the seventh
and Nehf finished the game without
allowing a hit.
New York scored twice in the
first inning on a pass to Burns and
Singles by Kauff and Statz. In the
last half of the same round the Reds
scored three runs on Fletcher's wild
throw on Rath's grounder and hits
by Roush, Kopf and Neale. New
York tied it in the fourth on suc
cessive hits by Burns, Kauff and
Frisch. The Reds won the seventh,
which Schreiber opened with a
double over first base. Rariden
bunted a fly toward first base which
Kelly muffed and then threw to third
in an attempt to get Schreiber, but
was too late. Toney was then re
lieved by Nehf and Schreiber scored
the winning run on Ruether's
grounder to Doyle, on which Rari
den was forced at second.
It was announced by Chairman
Herrmann today that the National
commission will meet here at 10
o'clock next Monday morning to
complete the arrangements for the
world's series. Score:

American League Executive
Body to Have Financial
Chicago, Sept. 16. A complete
investigation of the financial af
fairs of the American league was
ordered today at an executive ses
sion of a majority of the board
members. Charles A. Comiskey,
president of the Chicago American
league club, was authorized to pro
ceed with the inquiry. Ban B. John
son, president of the league, was
requested last month to furnish this
information to the board, but he has
failed to do so.
The question of gambling at base
ball parks also was considered and
Mr. Johnson was bitterly assailed
for his failure to give the board of
directors information which he is
said to have in his possession in re
gard to gambling at the games. The
board declared that everything pos
sible has been done by club owners
to stamp out .this evil, but criticised
the league executive for his failure
Board Issued Statement.
The board issued a statement,
which said in part:
"At this meeting the chairman of
the meeting, Mr. Comiskey, was
authorized to take any and all steps
that he might be advised by counsel
where necessary or proper for him
to take on behalf of the board of di
rectors of the league to procure a
complete statement of all accounts,
receipts and disbursements of the
league which Mr. Johnson was di
rected by an appropriate resolution
to furnish to this board at a meet
ing held on August 14, 1919, but
which he has entirely failed and neg
lected to do up to the present mo
ment, in direct violation of the con
stitution and by-laws of the Ameri
can base ball league.
To Investigate Charges.
In the attack on Mr. Johnson the
statement reads: "The prime object
of this meeting is to investigate
charges of gambling made bv the
president of the league through the
public press and otherwise. Mr.
Johnson, the president of the league,
although requested to be present at
the meeting and to present such evi
dence as he; might have with refer
ence to the subject, failed to appear.
It is needless to say, the statement
continues, that the members of this
league have at all times strenuously
endeavored to stamp out gambling
at any of the parks belonging to the
members of this league and will pur
sue that policy to the end. even
though the president of the league
did not deem it of sufficient moment
to give the board the benefit of such
assistance or acquaint them with
such facts as he might have in his
