XV Sill m m.mmmmmnn n lllBB There are hundreds of thin, run-down, nervous men andVomen right here in The Border Cities who should be strong, sturdy and vigorous, with rich, red blood tingling through their veins and leeiing brimful of life and energy, if they would only profit by the experience of others all over the United States and Canada and assist nature to digest the food they eat, by simply taking Tanlac. Millions of people hare hot only- been relieved of the most obstinate forms of dyspepsia and indigestion by Tanlac after other remedies have failed, but large numbers of .them have reported a remarkable "and rapid increase in weight and a - return to normal health and strength by its use. In fact, so phenomenal have been the gain in weight by thin, frail people through the use of Tanlac that this remarkable preparation is now being pioclaimed everywhere as the World's Greatest Tonic. The food people eat does them absolutely no good unless they digest it properly. When you suffer from indigestion and other forms of stomach trouble, the food ' does you harm instead of good, because food which is not digested stays in the stomach and ferments, causing pains, swelling, gas on ttomach, shortness of breath, bad taste in the mouth, dizziness and tnanv other disagreeable symptoms. ,f this condition is permitted to ua on for an indefinite period the eutire system becomes saturated with poiaons, the patient becomes This Still Produced 100 Gallons A Day j . r t ,4 rirvtysjKfetw sspfytpi i , ' ' " J 4 J" r' S " 3 , - . 4 ' ?', ' r 4 f ys t ' , A 7 i' ' AF 2g at 7 'A sy? a ' Z , 'Jr I fj, " " , ij 6 4 4 " .f v , s rt , 7 A ' ' ' V ' 4r v J s & & v : V 4 AA AH ' a , SF a 4- .JtS ? ktl -Mi Arf THE MANITOBA Provincial Police and the P.

Five convicts were lashed with the cat-o'-nme-tatls in the special punishment room at the St. Vincent da Paul penitentiary yesterday, four of them receiving the first half of their corporal sentence punishment, and the fifth taking his whole quantum. All of the number had been found guilty of robbery with violence, and four are under sentence of seven years imprisonment. thin and pale and in time various complications are apt to result. Tanlac is a powerful reconstructive tonic, and quickly overcomes this condition by aiding Nature to eliminate the impurities from the system in a natural way and enable the vital organs to properly perform their functions. That is why it is called Natures Medicine. In fact, there is net a single portion of the body that is not benefited by the helpfi 1 action of Tanlac, which begins its work by stimulating the digestive and assimilative organs, thereby enriching the blood and invigorating the entire system. Next, it enables the weak, worn-out stomach to thoroughly digest its food and convert the nourishing elements into bone, blood and muscle. The result Is you feel strong, sturdy and well with the proper amount of flesh, as Nature intended. Tanlac is sold in Windsor by all Lanspeary's Drug Stores, and Laings Drug Store.

J & V LOCAL Hardy Ice Cutters Do Work in Zero Weather Preparing for Summer Riverfront East of Border Cities Presents Picture of Unceasing Activity,-as Men and Horses Labor To Jay In Store of Blocks The reign of the Ice cutter is here. For many miles along the riverfront road east to Puce, the lake shore highway on the Canadian side is the sceife of busy operations. Not in much demand now, the 9-inch crystal blocks will Increase in value more than any other commodity before hot weather arrives. Eights cents a hundredweight for ice in summer is like finding money out in Detroit river and Lake St. Clair. The writer visited the water front at Riverside, Monday afternoon when ice cutting operations were in progress by several crews. On Investigation It was found that all were farmers-of the Sandwich East and St. Clair Shores districts. Apparently the pack being put up yesterday was for home consumption, and a limited sale to the hundreds of cottagers along the riverfront from Ford to Tecumseh. liook Picturesque Looking very picturesque in the bright January sunshine, these French-Canadian ice cutters were working with a vim, and not a moment's time was wasted. To one who has never viewed icecutting operations, the scene is most interesting. The neatly marked otf squares for the ice cutter, the long channel hewed out for the poling of ice blocks (o the loading chute, and the unique method of hauling the large cakes out of the water by horse power would make an attractive movie film. Work of Catting The cutter consists of a seventoothed Instrument, the steel teeth being directly in Lne and the points on the ice surface about six inches apart. With thi3 instrument drawn by a single horse, the French-Canadian ice-cutter states that he can cut two thousand blocks per day. At 160 to 175 pounds per block, this is not a bad days harvest. The financial end of it can be deduced when the days cut is figured at the summer price of eighty cents per hundred. The shrinkage between now and summer, If the stock is well packed, would be almost negligible. t The Ice-cutter goes over lines marked out, time after time, and at every traverse cuts down a half inch or more into the river floor. This operation is repeated many times until the thickness of the sheet is reuced to a point where safety for horse and driver compels further severing of the blocks ty precarious axe handling.. Floated Down Channel A long lane of free water, called the ice channel, is hewed out in line with the -loading shute, which resembles the bathing chute provided at beaches for quick precipitation into the aquatic realm. Along this channel, which extends out into the river for several hundred feet, the cut ice blocks are constantly poled along by three or four men using a regulation steel pointed pole for the work. This handy adjunct to the work is about nine feet in length and is very dexterously handled by the men running blocks to the leading chute. When eight or nine blocks are marshalled in Ime at the bottom of the chute, a horizontal clamp is laid across the end block. Out on the ice some forty feet away from the chute, a team handled with equal dexterity stands ready for the word to pull the string of blocks out of the water and up the chute to the loading platform. Just on the other side of the loading platform other wagons continually come in line to receive the loads. Hauled Up Chute Gee Dap Thar, says the French-Canadiap manning the ice block team.

NEWS rapidity to place over half the load on the waiting wagon, the remainder being poled off to the vehicle by a man in attendance. Team after team drives up to receixe the summer gold bricks, and so the operation goes on all day. At night the crew is tired, but while filling their pipes they reflect just what the crystal blocks will mean in extra money when the big upriver camping season is on It looks like foolishness to be laying in store material v hich is anything but desirable in frigid weath er, but these workers as well as the rest of the world know that the time is not far distant when a hun clrql pound ice block will be among the most desirable articles in the Border Cities vicinity. All honor goes to these hardy river men who are as willing to cut ice in zero weather as the farmer is to make hay while the sun shines. Farmers To Get Man On Federal Reserve Washington, Jan. 18.

Horticultural Department told the members of the Itndcn Fruit Growers Association at a meeting held in the department of agriculture office Tuesday afternon that the outlook for tree fruit was more than favorable. He pointed out that fruit trees had been considerably reduced, in numbers during the past ten jears, due partly to the unfavorable winter of four years ago. Apple trees in particular had been affected. Xo province can produce as good quality fruit as Ontario, said Professor Neilson. "We have the land and the climate favorable for the production of the best of fruit. It means a great deal of work to keep your orchards in good shape, but it will pay in dollars and cents. The man who has a god apple orchard need not be afraid of the future. HEARS 3 APPEALS AH On Convictions On Liquor Charges; Only One Allowed lecial to The Star u!am.

Gertie Etches of this city, who was convicted by Magistrate Arnold of telling liquor and was fined $500 and costs.

The second ar peal was made on behalf of Julian Mission, of Wall-aceburg, against a conviction registered by Magistrate Bridgewater, of Dresden, on a charge of having liquor.
