For instance, lust a few days ago, Mrs. L. H. Tscharner, of 826 Cornell Albany, made the following statement about Van-Tage. Mrs. Tscharner has lived in this Oakland vicinity for years and has friends throughout this section. Stomach Was Constantly Upset for Two Years "I think so much of Vnn-Tage after the wonderful way Jt helped me that I have nothing but praise and thanks for It, so I gladly come forward with this signed statement of mine, hoping that what I have to say will help other sufferers," said Mrs. Tscharner. "For the past two years I had been in an awful condition with all the misery that comes from an upset stomach. It seemed like my stomach was constantly upset so nothing I ate would agree with me. My meals nauseated me, in fact, I could scarcely eat at all, nor could I sleep right or get my proper rest due to this upset stomach condition. Bowels were irregular and constipated. Now Eats Sleeps Fine and Feels Like New! "One day a good friend of mine, who knew the condition I was in. fnlri mn about Van-Taee and urged me to a trial and now I say, "Many tnanKS to nerr Decause this medicine turned out to be just what I needed. It had a marvelous action on me and my upset stomach condition was quickly relieved and now I never miss a meal and can sleep soundly every night. The way Having their farms and towns lumped together as part of a "dust bqwl'Sfoes not set well with the people of southeastern Colorado, northeastern New Mexico, western Kansas, western an altitude of 12,000 feet when 30 miles south of Denver, Colo. could swallow an army and show not a mark on its thick carpet to indicate a host had passed through? Coronado, in 1540-41, brought an expedition from New Spain (now Mexico) northward Into what is new New Mexico, eastern Colorado, western Kansas. Reported Caste-nada, his chronicler: "Who could believe that' 1000 horses and 500 of our cows and more" than 5000, rams and ewes and more than 1500 friendly Indians and servants in traveling over these plains would leave no more trace where they had passed than if nothing had been there nothirfg?" CATTLE AND SHEEP MOVE IN Thus thickly did the lush green grasses cover the plains. There tfie buffalo, starting northward in the Spring grazed each in turn, yet left rots and teed to the miracle of reproduction. After the Spaniards In the southwest came the settlers on the eastern seaboard, the Revolution, the steady westward march of the pioneers, the i influx of homesteaders in the air. who staked out their plots on the public domain. Cattlemen and sheepmen drove their herds and flocks into the grassy plains of the southwest. Where cattle grazed, something remained;" where sheep cropped, cattle could not follow and live. Into western Kansas' Nebraska, eastern Colorado they moved; to the Red desert country of Wyoming, up across Montana, the two Dakotas, clear to the Canadian border. Had not General Luther P. Bradley reported, in 1868; "I believe that all the flocks and herds in the world cound find ample pasturage on these unoccupied plains and the mountain slopes beyond." WAR SPURS OVER-CULTIVATION Soon no range remained un-stocked, Cattlemen and sheepmen warred against each other, but neither warred against the overgrazing which scientists, even then, realized would kill Tfie i soil. Overgrazing leaves the soil without adequate cover to tie it down. (Even the Sahara and Gobi deserts were" once green, say scientists; might even blossom again if the flocks that pasture at oases were checked or removed. Science holds it is overgrazing of these no mad herds that halt the "work of nature the march of grass over the sahd, the march of trees in the wake of grass.) World War brought a cry for more wheat. Thousands of acres were put to the plow, planted to wheat acres which the conservationists say should have been left in pasture. farmers are nowhere to be says the soil conservation service, for if they did not farm this America their lands too wisely, they farmed them too well, making' crops grow where perhaps nature never intended anything but native grasses marching in thick, green ranks across the plains. Flowing the land to wheat turned up the clinging buffalo grass which protected the soil. Keeping the land in wheat, instead of alternating wheat, with other depleted the mineral" wealth of the soil and made 'the wheat less able to stand lack of moisture, With droughcame crop failures, and crop failures left the land barren, ready to blow with the wind.
