Wendt, black-eyed, his second

band sued Mildred for divorce,
charging cruelty. Rose married him
at Council Bluffs. Mildred filed suit
for $3,000 against Rose for aliena
tion of affections and was awarded
$3,000 in Cuming county district

State Flans to Fight

Lincoln, July 15. (Special.) C.
l iJort, assistant attorney general,
went to Omaha today to gather data
preparatory to ngnting the petition
for an injunction against the Smith

bakers against being obliged to tell
the people exactly how much bread
they get for their money was indi
catcd by Attorney General Clarence

upheld by numerous courts."

ney general relative to the bill and
Smith, who is an attorney, offered

Omaha Man at Last Finds
the Very Medicine He
Had Long Needed.
"For twenty years I hunted high
and low for a medicine that would
do my stomach some good, but
never found it until I got hold of
Tanlac," said George H. Baust,
1115 Drexel St., South Side, Omaha.
My stomach was badly out of
shape, my food would not digest
properjy and no matter how care
ful I was about what I ate I suf
fered agonies afterwards for hours
I was bilious most of the time and
finally rheumatism got in my left
shoulder and also in the back of my
neck, and hurt me so I could hardly
stand it.
"Of course I could hardly ex
pect four bottles of any medicine
to entirely relieve a trouble of
twenty years' standing, but my im
provement is simply wonderful. My
digestion is almost perfect now and
my neck and shoulder are almost
entirely free from rheumatism. In
fact, Tanlac has benefited me in
every way and I feel just like a new
man. My wite, seeing how much
good this medicine did me, tried it,
and now she is as enthusiastic as I
am. We certainly are believers in
Tanlac at our house.
Tanlac is sold in Omaha by the
