MANY PEOPLE REPORT SELECTIVE DRAFT
BIG GAINS IN WEIGHT p™ EASILY
THE DAVENPORT NEW ERA
THOUSANDS OF THIN, FRAIL
PEOPLE ARE RESTORED TO
HEALTH BY TAKING
FIGURES ARE ASTONISHING
People of Prominence and Unques-
tioned Integrity Tell What Cele-
brated Medicine Has Done
ONE of the most noteworthy fea-
tures In connection witli Tunliic
and the one that stand* out more prom-
inently than any other, perhaps, Is the
very large number of well-known men
and women from all parts of the South
who have recently reported Astonishing
and rapid increases In weight as a re-
sult of Its use.
When so many well-known people
of unquestioned Integrity make state-
ment after statement, each corroborat-
ing the other, the truth of such state-
ments can no longer be doubted.
Thousands have testified that this
famous medicine has completely re-
stored thein to health and strength,
after every other medicine and the
most skilled medical treutinent have
One of the most remarkable cases on
record Is that If Mrs. Viola Ives, of 318
Cross Street, Little Rock, Ark., whose
statement appears below.
"In May of 101,'1." said Mrs. Ives, "I
suffered a complete breakdown of my
nerves and my entire system gave
way. About six weeks afterwards I
was carried to the hospital. I became
perfectly helpless—couldn't move any
part of my body and just lay there In
bed for five months, not knowing any-
thing or nnybody. I wns brought home
In October, 1!)13, and tried all kinds of
medicine and everything I was told
"I read about so ninny people get-
ting relief by talcing Tnnlnc and my
husband got me a bottle. After tak-
ing three bottles I began to feel bet-
ter. I have taken several bottles of
Tanlnc now and I can walk anywhere
and sleep like n child. When I took
my first dose of Tnnlnc I weighed only
one hundred and twenty-two pounds.
I now weigh one hundred nnd sixty-
two—an nctunl gain of forty pounds
■luce I started on Tnnlnc."
Texas Man Testifier
Another remarkable case was that
of John SI. Crabtree, a general mer-
chant nt Five Mile Stntion A, Dallas,
"I have actually gained thirty-four
pounds on three bottles of Tnnlnc and
I now know what It Is to enjoy good
health nfter suffering for twenty
years," said Mr. Crabtree.
"I suffered with catarrh of tire stom-
ach and Indigestion for twenty years
nnd for eighteen months, before I start-
ed taking Tanlac, I had to live almost
entirely on cereals. I spent nearly nil
of one whole year 1 bed and was un-
able to do anything at all nnd I fell
off in weight to 118 pounds.
"After using my third bottle of Tan-
lac I found I had increased in weight
from 118 pounds to 1.12 pounds, mak-
ing an actual gain of tlilrty-four pounds
—nil my troubles were gone, nnd I was
feeling like another man."
Captain Jeff I). Klggs, popular Y. &
M. V. engineer, running between Vlcks-
burg nnd New Orleans and residing nt
2020 Pearl Street, Vlcksburg, In speak-
ing of his experience with Tanlac,
GAINS 21 POUNDS
WAS TWICE EXAMINED AND
TOLD OPERATION WOULD
BE HER ONLY HOPE.
T HAVE Just finished my third bot-
A tie of Tunlac and liuve gained
twenty-seven pounds," was the truly
remarkable statement made by Mrs.
Charles Peden, residing at 55 Mill
street, liuntsvllle, Ala.
"When I commenced tnking the
medicine," she continued, "I only
weighed ninety-eight (1)8) pounds; now
I weigh 125 pounds, and never felt
better In my life. For years I have
suffered with a bad form of stomach
trouble, constipation anil pains in my
Bide nnd back. At times the pains
took the form of torture, and I was
twice examined and each time I wus
told that I had appendicitis and that
nn operation would be my only hope.
"I had made all preparations for
the operation and called In my sister
to tell her good-by, as I did not know
whether I would live to see her ngnln
or not. My sister begged nnd pleuded
with me not to allow them to cut on
me and told me to wait and try a good
tonic for awhile. The next day, as
I returned from the consultation room,
I thought of what she uld, nnd as
I had beard so much about Tanlac,
I decided to try It and got a bottle.
"I never returned for the operation,
hut Just kept taking the Tanlac. Itight
from the start 1 begun to feel better.
The medicine seemed to take hold
right at once.
"I was so hnppy over the wonder-
ful Improvement In my condition that
I sent for my neighbors to tell them
how much better I felt. I sent and got
another bottle of Tanlac, and have
Just finished taking my third bottle
and feel as If I have been made all
over again into a new woman.
Any man who lets his wife get up !
on a cold morning and light the kitch-
en fire will never set the world ab'.t.ce.

Old Engineer Talks.
Engineer Chap. J. Weeks, who runs
the Seaboard Air Line fast train
"Fox" between Jacksonville and Tam-
pa, bears the distinction of being flu*
second oldest engineer In point of serv-
ice with this road, having been with
the company for thirty-three years.
"I've gained twenty pounds on seven
bottles of Tanlac and feel as well
and happy as I did when a boy," said
"For twenty years T suffered with
nervous Indigestion of the worst sort."
he continued, "and at times during the
past fifteen years I didn't think I
would last much longer. To tell you
the truth, I finally reached the point
where T didn't much care whether I
lived or died.

Sent To Con-
Washln^top.—By overwhelming ma
Jorltles, both the Benate and house
paused the administration bill to raise
a war army by selective draft.
The final roll calls brought Into
line behind the bill many senators and
representatives who had fought for
the volunteer system until routed by
decisive defeat of volunteer amend-
ments in both houses.
The senate which had voted down
ths volunteer plan, 69 to 18, passed the
bill by a vote of 81 to 8. In the house
the vote against the volunteer plan
vas 313 to 109 and that by which the
bill itself was passed, 397 to 24.
Senator Gore was the only member
of the Oklahoma delegation in con-
gress who refused to support President
Senators who voted against the bill
were: Democrats—Gore, Hardwlsk,

As passed the senate the measure
provides for the draft of men between
21 and 27 years old, while In the house
measure the age limits are fixed as 21
and 40. This and lesser discrepancies
will be threshed out In conference
so that the bill may be In the hands
of the president as quickly as possible
The war department already has com-
pleted plans for carrying It Into effect.
Guard for Border.
The senate also accepted, 53 to 2b
an amendment by Senator Fall of
Mexico, authorizing the president to
call into service three or more regi-
ments of mounted volunteers for serv-
ice on the Mexican border or in any
foreign country the president may dl
The senate approved an amendment
by Senator Stone which would definite-
! ly confine the draft to the period of the
existing emergency and another by
Senator New providing that nothwlth-
standing the exemptions In the bill,
each state must furnish its quota in
proportion to population.
Special Troops Authorized.
Chairman Chamberlain accepted an-
other amendment authorizing the
president to raise by voluntary enlist-
ment or draft such "special and techni-
cal troops" as he deems necessary.
Mr. Chamberlain said this would apply
particularly to railroad and other
workers of good character.
Both senate and house adopted
amendments just before the final roll
j call, which would greatly Increase the
pay of enlisted men during the war.
The house provision would make their
pay $30 a month and that approved by
the sennte would fix It at $29 a month.
The present pay Is only $15.

Hope Abandoned of Finding Any
Hastings, Col.—Virtually all hope of
saving any of the 120 men entombed
In the Hastings mine of the Victor-
American Fuel Company here 'by an
explosion is abandoned. Jainea
lialrympte. Btate coal mine inspector,
gave it as his opinion that the was no
one left alive In the mine. Rescue
men who have been In the mine ex-
pressed themselves similarly.
G. F. Bartlett, president of the com-
pany, however, declared the work of
rescue will go on until there is no
hope any of the entombed men Is
alive. Thirteen bodies have been taken
from the mine.
Mr. Darymple, who entered the
workings to within 100 feet of the
face of the mine, said the rescue
crews knew where there were six or
eight other bodies which they cannot
reach until the gas clears away.
"In my opinion there was no fire In
the mine," Mr. D&lrymple said. As
to the cause of the dtxastor he said:

ALL READY FOR THE DRAFT
MEN IN ELIGIBLE CLASS
Some Form of Jury Wheel To Be Used
To Sele-.t First Con-
Washington. — With enactment of
the selective draft army bill, the war
department Is preparing to Bet' ma-
chinery In motion without delay to
produce under the measure within two
years a trained army of 2,000,000 men.
Within ten days after the bill Is
signed every township in the country
will be registerong Its young men for
duty and work will have begun on the
sixteen training cantonments or camps
where preparation of the forces for
war will start in August or Septem-
ber. Sites for the cantonmentB have
been selected tentatively and already
plans made for the concentration of
the troops assigned to each.
Method of Registration.
Decentralization of administrative
work will be sought by the department
In every move it makes. Details are
not disclosed, but It Is known registra-
tion will be carried on through sher-
iffs and other county officials, aided
by postmasters or other federal agen-
cies where that seems desirable, in-
structions and forms already have
been prepared and will be forwarded
to'the state adjutants general for dis-
tribution among county officials.
Wide publicity is planned so that no
man liable for registration will have a
good excuse for falling to respond. On
a date to be set every citizen affected
by the act will be required on pain of
heavy penalty to present himself at
the nearest registration place, where
machinery will be provided for classi-
fying the recruits and eliminating
those exempt. Doubtful eases will be
referred to higher authority.
May Use Jury Wheels.
With the rolls of those liable for
service complete, the task of selecting
the men to go in the first increment
of 500,000 will begin. It has been
suggested that this be done by means
of the county Jury wheel. The first
man whose name is drawn would go
under that plan with the first 500,000
men to be called out for training
within a few months. The second
drawn would go with the second incre-
ment to be called six months later;
the third with the third increment
with duty a year off; the fourth with |
the fourth increment, and so on.
Meanwlfcie the work of building the
cantonments will go forward. Regular
troops and national guardsmen will be
assigned to them with each arm of
the service so represented as to pro-
vide the framework of a complete
army division at each point. The j
guardsmen will be selected from the
territory covered by the training dis-
trict bo far as practicable. Police duty
at the cantonments will become part
of the responsibility of each district
commandant and he will make such
assignment of his forces as he may
deem wise. Meantime both the regu-
lars and guardsmen will continue re-
cruiting to war strength.
With the new regiments assembled
a rigorous course of training will be
undertaken. The officers' training
camps will be established within a few
days in each district will begin at the
end of three months pouring new of-
ficers Into this organization and the
enlisted men selected from the ranks
of the regulars for commissions will
he given special Instructions to fit
them for officers. Until the army of
young men presents itself at the
camps in August or September, the
regulars and guardsmen also will pur- ;
sue a rigorous course of training.
The plans call for the transfer to
the first 500.000 men obtained by draft
of from 150,000 to 200,00 non-commis-
sioned officers trained in the regular
and national guard regiments. It is
here that the opportunity lies for men
who volunteer now as enlisted men in
the ranks of the two services. On
them war department officials believe
even to a greater extent that upon
the commissioned officers, will depend
the efficiency of the new armies. The
backbone of any military organization
Is Its non-commlssloned force, and in
the months that precede the calling
out of the first 500,000. officers of the
general staff hope there will be found
in the ranks of the regulars and
guardsmen such a supply of men com-
petent for these positions that the fu-
ture of the later armies will be assured
