It Pays to Naturalize
West of the Meuse
PARIS, March 8.-FolIed In their at
tempts to carry Douaumont plateau, the
Germans are now turning their attention
to other parts of the land and are driv
ing at French positions west of the
Meuse. while their artillery keeps the
French busy elsewhere and their Infan
try nss been making attacks in the
Woevre district in the vicinity of Fresnea.
As the first result of their drive to
the west of the Mleuse, the Germans took
the town of Forges, and since have, ad
vanced further to the south and aouth
east. The capture of Forges, which waa
only an advance post and not strongly
held, was apparently the first step in a
serious effort to storm the long crest
extending from the Meuse to Forges
broo. The fire from the highest points
along the crest, .the Mort Homme and
Oie Mils, took the Germans In the rear,
when they were attacking Douaumont by
way of Vacherauvllle. and was partly re
sponsible for their failure of Sunday,
while the violent and persistent bom
bardment of the German artillery had
little effect upon the fire of the French
batteries along the crest. It would be
natural then for the Germans, according
o their known methods, to turn to the al
ternative of trying to storm the heights
with masses of infantry.
The desire of the Germans to reduce
the awkward salient formed by the
Meuse north of Verdun waa anticipated
by the French, who are fully prepared
for its defense, with every confidence
that the German attempt would only re
sult In heavy losses for the attacking

Fitness of Brandeis
Now Under Way
WASHINGTON. March . Testimony
hst parties to the much-discussed Lennox
bankruptcy litigation were kept In the
dark as to the exact connection of Louts
I). Brandeis with the case wss given to
day before the senate subcommittee in
vestigating Mr. Brandeis' fitness to be a
supreme court Justice.
James T. Innojc told the committee
that Brandeis had told him he would act
as his counsel and that he did not learn
until months after the assignment had
been made that Brandeis was not repre
senting his Interests.
Abe Stein, a Lonnox creditor, aald he
had employed Brandeis to act for him.
but later the same day Brandeis had sent
word he could not do so, but would act
Moses J. Stroock, Stein's attorney, told
the committee he never had doubted that
Brandeis waa acting for Lennox. Other
witnesses have stated that Mr. Brandeis
acted as trustee of the Lennox estate.
George R. Nutter, an assignee of the
lnnox estate and a member of the Bran
deis law firm. Is expected to testify to
morrow In regard to the case, and Ed
ward F. McClennen. also of the Brandd
firm, will be recalled for cross-examination.
Harry Zimman Talks
To Economic League
Upon City Gas Plant
That a proposition should be made to
the gas company to buy its plant and
make It a municipal plant, or that the
city should go ahead and build a mu
nicipal plant, was reiterated last night
by Harry B. Zimman In an address be
fore the Economic league at the court
"Omaha Is to be congratulated." he
said, "on the existing condition whlcli
makes It possible for It to buy the plant
without having to pay an exorbitant price
for the franchise or for going value."
He reminded the members that the gas
company's franchise expltea in December,
1918. He reminded them further that tho
figures of the hired expert are on file
with the city, giving the physical
valuation of the plant at $1,500,000 ap
proximately: "On that basis." he said. "it Is safe to
proceed with a bond issue of $2,000,000.
Then we are in a position to buy the
present plant or to build a new one. Now
we must give the gas company officials
credit for having some regard for the capi
tal they have Invested. Naturally they
would in such a situation seek to save all
they could from the wreckage, and they
would sell rather than have tia build a
competing plant, for the moment we have
a competing plant built ready to commence
business when their franchise expires
their property Is abaolutely worthless.
"If the city council refuses to support
uch a movement to Issue bonds, I am
In favor of getting the necesaary signa
tures to a petition to go before the people
with the proposition In November."

NBW YORK. March .-The general
reeling among many noted men in Ger
many is that the government there bat
exhausted all efforta to retain Ameri a'
friendship and can do nothing further,
according to Hoy S. Macelwee, secretary
to the American consul general In Berlin,
who arrived here today on the Norweg an
American liner KrUtlanim. Mr. Macelwee
baa returned to visit relatives and will
go to Washington on official business.
The military and naval strength of the
1' lilted States Is not seriously regarded
in Germany, said Mr. Macelwee. "Oer
nians feel," he asserted, "that thero ts

foolishly aeem to think they are going
to get renewed health and strength from
some stimulating medicine, secret nos
trum or narcotio drug, said Dr. Bauer,
a specialist of this city, when, as a mat
ter of fact, real and true strength can
only come from the food you eat. But
people often fail to get the strength
out of their food becaua they haven t
enough Iron In their blood to enable It
to change food Into living matter. From
their weakened, nervous condition they
know something Is wrong, but they can't
tell what, ao they generally commence
doctoring for stomach, liver or kidney
trouble or symptoms of some other ail
ment caused by the lack of iron in the
blood. This thing may go on for years,
while the patient suffers untold agony,
if you are not strong or well, you owe
it to yourself to make the following
test: 8ee how long you cen work or how
far you can walk without becoming
tired. Next take two five grain tablets
of ordinary nuxated Iron three times per
day after meala for two weeka. Then
test your atrength again and see for
yourself how much you have gained.
1 have seen dosens of nervous, rundown
people who were ailing all the while,
double thetr atrength and endurance and
entirely get rid of all symptoms of dys
pepMia, liver and other trouble tn from ten
to fourteen daya' time almply by taking
Iron in the proper form, and this
after they had in some cases been doc
toring for months without obtaining any
benefit. But don't take the old forma of
reduced Iron. Iron acetate or tincture of
Iron simply to save a few cents. You
must take Iron In a form that can be
easily absorbed and assimilated like
nuxated iron if you want it to do you
any good, otherwise It may prove worse
than useless. Many an athlete or prise
fighter has won the day simply because
he knew the secret of great strength
and endurance and filled his blood with
Iron before he went into the affray,
