EVERVBDDY SEES A
Grateful Son Says His Father
Looks Like Different Man
Since Taking Tanlac.
"My father has suffered from
chronic stomach trouble for over
twenty years and has paid out thou-
sands of dollars for medicines and
doctors," said G. W. Slayton, a well-
known Cobb County farmer, living ■
Bhort distance out of Atlanta, Ga.
"We tried nearly everything trying
to cure him and he went off to the
Springs, thinking maybe the water
might help him, but It Just looked
like nothing would reach his trouble.
Then he tried dieting and lived on
liquid food until he almost starved,
hut. even that failed to do blm any
good and he just kept going from bad
"I don't guess there ever was a
case as stubborn as his, and if there
ever was a confirmed dyspeptic he was
one of them, and I guess he would
have been one yet if it hadn't been
for this Tanlac.
"The first we heard of this medi-
cine was when my father saw an ad-
vertisement In the papers from parties
he knew in Tennessee, who were
friends of his and he knew what they
said about it was the truth, so he got
It right away and began taking It.
Well, sir, It acted Just like magic—
everybody notices the change in fa-
ther. Why, he is Just like a different
man and sits down to the table and
eats like a farmhand. Only yesterday
he ate pork and turnips for his dinner
nnd ate so much we were actually
afraid he was going to overdo th«
thing, but he laughed aud said nothing
hurt him now and that he was hungry
and expected to eat and make up for
"Now, when a medicine will do
things like that I think people might
to know about it, and I want to say
right now that I would not give one
bottle of Tanlac for all the other
medicines and health resorts In the
country put together."

He was a Chinaman. He lan a
laundry and no one ever heard him
speak a word of English. I often
■wondered why he had not learned our
beautiful language. But to my queries
he only shook his head.
One day when I paid for my weekly
wash he returned less change than
usual. "You've short-changed me, Ping
Pongl" I cried.
Ting Pong smiled blandly, showed
me his Americanization of foreign
merchants' certificate and, speaking
for the first time in faultless English,
replied: "No, I've raised."—From

"Still thinking of buying a farm?"
"No, I've always prided myself on
taking a cheerful view of life."
"What has that to do with your buy-
ing a farm?"
"Judging from the kind of talk I

London.—An une xpected attack on
the covenant of the league of n 'tlons
was made in the house of lords by
Ix>rd Curson, secretary of state for
foreign affairs. He declared that
many existing international difficul-
ties were due to the allies having
taken the wrong turning in the mak-
ing of peace, and he uttered a strong
appeal for the utmost American co-
operation with the allies.
The foreign secretary's speech was
made in the course of a general dis-
cussion on mandates in which he ad-
mitted that parliament was entitled
to more information, but he said this
was a subject involved in obscurity.
The language of the covenant was
juch that not even a trained lawyer

Lord Curion entered into a long ex-
planation of the British view, showing
that there had been no discourtesy

Oklahoma City.—"Not guilty" of
the murder of Earl Marlin! Thus
ended the most bitterly fought and
one of the most thrilling murder cases
ever tried in the courts of Oklahoma
City. J. M. Saunders, war veteran
and deputy sheriff, charged with the
murder of Earl Marlin the night of
Marah 17, walked from the district
oeurtroom of Judge Oldfield a free
man, after the state ln six days had
failed to show a murder motive for
the killing. According to the verdict
Marlin was shot seven times and
killed by an offloer of the law in self-

rest and had drawn a gun.
"Earl Merlin's death didn't end my
danger. Behind dark corners and

MEANS BIG CROP
Wheat in Western Canada Has
Germination, In the Rich Soil of That
Country, Is Speedy—Farmers
on Road to Wealth.
It was on the 18th of May that the
writer received a letter from a friend
ln Western Canada dated the 15th of
the same month. Information was
conveyed In the letter that Its author
had traveled over a considerable por-
tion of Western Canada, lie had cov-
ered most of the settled portions, and
from those he had not covered he had
secured Information that amplified
his own observations of conditions
throughout all the vast urea of that
country. He found seeding of wheat
practically completed, and placed Id
a bed of earth that was In a condition
that warranted speeuy and healthy
germination. This was borne out by
evidence that he was a witness of
wheat that had been In the ground
four days that was already breaking
through, and that which had been
Beeded for a week was well above the
ground, the field being as green as
a new pasture plot. Everywhere this
condition existed. It will be pleasing
Information for those who have
friends In Western Canada—in any
part of It, no matter where they may
be—to learn that conditions have
opened up ln such a splendid way, and
to be advised that the prospects were
never brighter than now. When It
becomes known that conditions are so
satisfactory, many who were waiting,
uncertain what to do In the matter of
moving, will cfoubtless now come to a
decision. With the opening of thou-
sands of homesteads, which took place
on the 1st of May, there was a rush
te take advantage of the opportunity
to secure 160 acres of excellent land
free, within speaking distance of i*
railroad. The low railway rates
granted by means of a certificate Is-
sued by Canadian government agents,
located at different points In the
States, make It possible to make a
trip of Inspection at small cost.
Oat and barley farming are branches
that add considerable to the wealth
of the farmer who desires to make
money quickly. That these grains can:
be growb so successfully, and easily,
makes It possible to go Into other
branches of farming Industry, that
give stability to It, wherever they are
carried on. They are dairying and
cattle-raising. There Is an excellent
market, for the product, and the cli-
mate aids materially ln assisting It,
while the native grasses, as well a?
cultivated varieties, bring the cost of
production to a much lower figure than
Is possible on lands that are mucb
higher ln price, with no better yield-
ing qualities. Then, again. It Is amply
shown that fodder corn can be growth
with great success, and that sunflow-
ers, which It has been fully proven
are little behind, If any, In food quali-
ty, thrive wonderfully. In fact, these-
two fodders, In addlAon to which may
be added that of alfalfa and sweet
clover, In which Western Canada
farmers are well apace with grower®
elsewhere, have brought about a pe-
riod of sllo-bulldlng which promises
to eclipse any effort In this line made
anywhere on the continent. In Mani-
toba alone, one firm Is building two
hundred this year. In Saskatchewan,
many orders have been placed; In one
small district In Alberta, where fifty
were erected last year, another fifty
will be built this summer. That there
will be a thousand silos erected in the
three provinces this year seems to be
a conservative estimate. To the farm-
er In the States, who knows the ad-
vantage of the silos, who Is interested
In the fodder to be grown to fill them,
what does this mean?—Advertisement,
Proficiency makes slow progress,
yet It is never overtaken by the man
in a hurry.
