NOT BUY GOOD,
MRS. SHOUP SAYS
Had Suffered Twenty-five
Years Tanlac Ends
: Troubles. '
"Now, since I have taken Tanlac
I am in better health than I've been
in twenty-five Ions: years," was the
statement' 'made the other day by
Mrs. Henrietta Shoup, when she
called at Sutliff and CaseVdrug
store in Peoria, 111. Mrs. Shoup
lives out on Route No. 3 from
Peoria, where she owns a large
Continuing Mrs." Shoup said: "If
it hadn't teen for Tanlac I. would
not have been able to have made
the trip into town today, and I feel
so thankful for the remarkabtegood
this medicine has done me that 1
have come in the store here now to
tell you how I have been restored
to complete health. No, sir, a for
tune couldn't buy the good this
medicine has done me.
"Before I commenced taking Tan
lac I had been in bad health for
twenty-five years, and my condition
had been getting worse all the time
until I got to where I was in misery
nearly all the time, i My stomach
was in an awful fix" and nearly
everything I ate soured and caused
gas to form so bad that I thought
I would smother1 at times. 1 would
have terrible headaches, and I had
such bad dizzy spells at times that
I couldn't stand up. I was very
nervous and restless and my sleep
was broken, and I lost in weight
until I looked almost like a frame.
I had always taken pride in raising
my own chickens and turkeys, but
I was so broken down that I had to
give it up entirely-
"When I had allmost given up
all hope of ever being relieved of
my suffering, a neighbor persuaded
me into trying Tanlac, so I got a
bottle. That one bottle did me
more good than all the other things
I had taken put together for the
last-twenty-five years. I was so
encouraged that I kept right on tak
ing Tanlac, and now today you can
see for yourself what it has done
for me. I am seventy years old,
but I am in the best of health, have
a splendid appetite and am never
troubled one bit with my stomach.
The headaches and dizzy spells have
all left me, and I am not nervous
or restless and can sleep fine every
night. My strength has come back
and I have gained in weight I
just feel so fine that I am simply
overjoyed at my recovery." (

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 28. (Special
to The Bee.) State conference foot
ball this year with five teams lead
ing in the race for the state cham
pionship, and two of these as likely
looking as any college teams that
trotted onto a gridiron, promises
more than ordinary interests.
The Nebraska Wesleyan Coyotes,
with a total of 109 points, by vir
tue of victories over the Doane Ti
gers,, Peru and Central City, is com
ing into the limelight it once held
in years gone by as a foot ball team
of merit. York, with a total of 114
points and zero for its opponents,
is a close leader.
Kearney also is still, to be scored
Interest in the state association
was brought to a focus last week
when the state conference members,
by reason of a challenge by Hastings
college against the York eleven con
cerning the eligibility of the three
of the latter's players, met in Lin
coln to decide the matter. Ten con
ferees attended, these being Prof.
Smith of Cotney college, presiding
officer; Rouse of Peru normal, Shirk
of Nebraska Wesleyan, Barrage of
Doane, Ashcraft of York, Firth of
Grand Island, Cappock of Nebraska
Central, Cline of Midland, Crone of
Hastings and Pate of Kearney Nor

resentatives that their challenge
was without sufficient grounds.
Nevertheless the conference voted
for a more explicit interpretation of
the rules. Their ruling was as fol

garding eligibility of students for
athletic contests be interpreted 10
mean that a student to be eligible
to intercollegiate athletics must
carry 12 hours' work in the college
departments or 16 hours of sub

sidered the equivalent of 12 hours,
and that drills, such as typewriting,

shall not be counted in arriving at
the valuation of the hours carried."

Prospects for Such Organiza

Prospects for launching a middle
west amateur base ball association
next spring, -with Omaha as the
headquarters, was discussed at the
annual smoker of the officers and
directors of the Municipal Amateur
Base Ball association last night at
the Omaha Athletic club.
A motion to; this effect was intro
duced by Vice President A. A.
Hoopingarner, and unanimously
carried. It was pointed out that an
association of this kind would be a
big feature for amateur base ball in
Omaha and would also be a great

just closed, was unanimously re
elected for the coming season, as
were all the other old officers dur
ing the 1919 season.
The list of officers, besides Presi
dent Scott, are: Thomas Falconer,
park commissioner; A. A. Hoopin
garner, W. E. Reed, George T. Zim
merman and Leo Rosenthal, vice
presidents; J. J. Isaacson, secretary;
James Milota, recording secretary,
and Fred S. Hunter, treasurer. A.
D. Kline was also elected as vice
president. Amendment Carried.
An amendment to the contitution
was carried, whereby the words "five
vice presidents" was striken out and
the words "limited to ten" was sub
stituted. At a meeting to be held
in the near future, four more vice
presidents will be elected.
The financial end of the associa
tion this season was bigger than ex

at the western amateur champion
