would stand watch at night and come
back to help tho girls in the daytime.
They couldn't persuade him to sleep.
Other fellows came and worked and
told their Btories and got their words of

chap was always on the job, ever work

Then his company moved, and the
gills missed their chief doughnut dipper.
They often inquired what had happened
to him. But no one knaw anything
about him, and they heard from him on

the trenches a few miles to the north.
One morning Miss Irene wa9 rolling

Two Bottles of Tanlac Did
More Good Haa Treat
ment Costing $300.
Remarkable, indeed, was the state
ment made by Arthur Albro, a well
known carpenter, living at 3!K)3 Mead
street, SeatitW, Wash., recently. Mr
Albro declares that he has received
more real, genuine benefit from two
bottles - of Tanlae than from other
treatment and medicines that have cost
him nearly three hundred dollars. His
complete statement follows:
"I have suffered terribly with my
stomach for fifteea years. My food
wouui not digest, ana tnc ga8 formed
by it caused me untold misery. The
gas would get all up around my heart,
ana cause it to tnuup until 1 felt like
a hammer was beating airainst mv
side. I had to be very careful about my
eating, ana got so tired of eating the
few things that half way agreed with
me that I would sometimes get reck
less and eat meats, pie and such things
but I ahvavs paid dearly for it in
suffering. Finally I just had to give
up eating any supper at all, for when
1 did eat anything for supper I would
suffer all night so. I couldn't sleep. I
was constipated all the time and also
suffered for years with my back. When
I stooped over my back would cramp
me so ibad that I could hardly stright-
en up. My Kidneys were all out of or
der and disturbed me so often at night
that I couldn't get any rent scarcely.
I paid out nearly three hundred dollars
for treatment and medicines of vari
ous kinds, but kept gotting worse. I
even tried dieting and almost starved
myself out. and sometimes felt a little
relief, but just as I said, whenever I
ventured to eat a fairly good meal it
would knock me completely out. I lost
two solid months from my work last
winter and it had begun to look like
my condition was hopeless.
"I had .been kaeping up with what
the papers published about Tanlac, and
while I had my doubts about it being
as good as some said it was, I was in
such a bad shape that I was willing to
try anything. So I bought a bottle, and
soon found that it was just the very
thing I needed. I havo hardly finished
my second bottle yet, but I havo al
ready ibeen benefitted so much that I
will never doubt anything good I rend
or hear about Tanlac from now on. My
appetite is fine and I can eat most
anything I want without feeling the
least 'bit uncomfortable afterwards.
Why, just last night I ato a hearty
supper and topped it off with a big
piece of mince pic something I have
not ventured to eat for years then
went to bed and slept all night like a
log. I'm not constipated, my kidneys
don't bother me like they did, and so
I eet eood rest every night. I have
gained all of five pounds already and
feel that I' am still gaining, not only
in weight, but also in strength and! en
CTgy. I'm beginning to feel like a new
man and consider myself lucky to be
aible to get such a .medicine as Tan
lac." Tanlac is sold in Hubbard by Hub-

General Focn's Strategy
The experience of,the British in this
