A. P. WHITER VIEWS ALL
British Front in France (Via Lon
don), July 13. The Britiih general
staff officers are showing elation over
the results of the overnight attacks
against the Ger,man second line, al
though careful to state that the great
task against a powerful foe is only
barely started. Soon after daylight the
joyful news of the British success
slipped into a telephone message over
the area occupied by the British army.
As a spectacle to an eye witness,
this action of the second big stage of
the battle of the Somm surpassed
that of July 1. Taking needed ground
for organizing : new trenches and
throwing out small parties, who dug
. themselves 'in, the army 'has been
gradually gaining a position from
Villers to the , Boiselle and Mtfnt
Tuban, a distance of four miles, from
which to. deliver t blow, until many
points were within 200 yards ' of the
bermin second line. ,, . .";
Seen Cutting' Wires,, ?T
Meanwhile the shells of the British
artillery could be seen cutting' the
wire and making thorough prepara
tions, of which General- Sir Douglas
Haig, the British commander, insists
there is evidence on every- hand.
"Tomorrow morning at J," came the
laconic word yesterday evening, "pre
ceded by the usual intensive prelim
inary bombardment, only s little hot
ter' -, V".'' ;.'."!";'
The ground gained' by the British
on July 1 and in subsequent opera
tions gave The' Associated Press ob
server a viewpoint from which the1
whole line of attack could be seen.
The faint moonlight enabled the gun
ners dimly to see their work, the in
fantry and the contour ,ot the ground.
"This is a real daylight saving show,"
said one of the gunners, ..... i
Guns of Ad Caliber.
Seemingly, as the observer pushed
audaciously close to the German line,
there wis the 'greatest concentration
of guns of all caliber, probably ever
made in a given area. From behind the
German trenches gained on July 1
darted the dagger flashes through a
blanket of night. Onel Twol Threel
Four I For battery after battery was
shooting' at high- speed, from
the bottom of the hillside to the top.
-The scene of artillery power was
no less indescribable than the thrill
ing suggestion of the waiting infan
try battalion lines, which were seen
going into position before the battle.
At the moment the assault started
it seemed there was no interval in the
thunders as-the guns moved forward
their curtain of shell .bursts in front
of the first wave- erf infantry advancing
across the zone between their
trenches and the German lines.
4- V Big Firs Noticed. V;
. In the direction- of Longueval a big
- fire was seen. 1$ was the village or a
storehouse burning, as the bright, spot
was growing to a steady point in the
field of gun flashes. Then soaring
heavenward went, a rocket signal
light, which gave the positions gained
in the attacks. The commanders in
the rear answered with other signals,
.while what had been the German
stronghold half an hour or an' hour
before burning red patches, spreading
' with the aparks of the roman candles.
-This method of communication is a
difficult part of the business of di
recting an army under cover of dark-
At the first flush of dawn the first
British aeroplane came humming
from its aerodrome toward the Ger
' man lines, and the sausage-shaped ob
servation balloons arose together into
the air. Out -of the blanket where
the guns were flashing arose the
white flashes of the maze of. old Ger
man trenches, the ribbons of roads,
- and finally the dark masses be
came Mamets and other now famous
woods and gaunt finger points, the
trunks of trees, which had shaded the
highways, but now were denuded of
limbs by the shell fire.
More Lines Moving.
; While the smoke barriers from the
British lilies were carried by favorable
winds the sheila made other points of
the line indistinct, the ridge of Lon-
?:ueval, where the British burrowed
orward against commanding posi
tions and a stubborn, cunning and
brave foe, was seen distinctly to be
in their possession. More lines of
' troops were moving through the Ger
man curtains of shell fire to the sup-
aof those who had gained the
desired summit and now were
looking down bill where the German
. guns are hidden and with the
- Bapaume ridge in the distance. Be
hind them all was the organization
, which had plotted the action of the
army and back of those were bat-
- taliona awaiting their orders.. -.

$50,000 Ty Cobb "Comes Back"
Nuxated Iron Makes Him
Winner Greatest Baseball
Batter of all time says Nuxated Iron filled him with renewed life after he was weak
ened and all run down. Supplies that "stay there" strength and vim that makes
men of mark and women of power.
Well known physician who has
studied widely in this country and
Europe, explains why taking iron en
abled Ty Cobb to "come back" so
quickly and show such tremendous
strength and endurance. Says ordinary
nuxated iron will often increase the
strength and endurance of delicate
nervous folks 200 per cent in two
New York, N. Y. Whsm intsrvlewtd
iff his apartment at Brstton Hall, Ty
Cobb ld: "Hundreds of poopla writ to

enables me to play practically every day
of the entire baseball season. They won

ated Iron filled ma with renewed life.
Now they say I'm worth $60,000 a
year to any baaeball team, yet without
plenty of iron In my blood I wouldn't be
worth five cents. Nuxated Iron eupplies
that "stay there" strength
and vim that snakes man
of mark and women of
power. Continuing Dr.
Bauer said; "Mr. Cobb's
ease la only ona of han-
dreds which I could etta

. psrienee, which proves conclusively the
... astonishing power of nuxated Iran to re
atere strength and vitality evan U most

at 44 he waa -careworn and nearly all in.
New at a mtraole of vitality and hia

As I have said a hundred times over.
Iron Is the greatest of all strength build
ers. If people would only throw away
patent nnsdicines and nauseous concoc
tions and take simple' nuxated iron, I
am convinced that the lives of thousands
of persons might be saved, who now die
very year from pneumonia, grippe, con
sumption, kidney, liver and neart trou
ble, etc. The real and true cause which
started their diseases was nothing more
nor less than a weakened condition
brought on by lack of iron in the blood.
Iron is absolutely necessary to enable
your blood to change food into living tis
sue. Without it, no matter how much or
what you eat, your food merely passes
through you without doing you any good.
You don't get the strength out of it,
and as a consequence you become weak,
pale and sickly looking Just like a plant
trying to grow in a soil deficient
tn iron, u you are not strong or
well you owe it to yourself to
make the following test. See how
long you can 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 meats
for two weeks. Then test your
strength again and see for your
self how much you have gained.
I have seen dozens of nervous
run-down people who were ailing
alt the while, double their strength
and endurance and entirely get
rid of all vifiDtnmsi n
pepsla, liver and other troubles in from
ten to fourteen days' time simply by
taking iron in the proper form. And
this after they had In some eases been
, doctoring for months without obtaining
. any benefit But don't take the old
forme of reauoed Iron, Iron acetate or
tincture of Iron simply to save a few
cents. You must take Iron In 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 endur
ance and filled his blood with iron be
fore he went into the affray, while many
another has gone to inglorious defeat
simply for the lack of Iron. E. Sauer,
N0T5 Nuxated Iron, recommended
above by Dr. Sauer, la not a patent medi
cine or secret remedy, but one which Is
well known to druggists and whose Iron
constituents are widely prescribed by
eminent phystcfane everywhere. Unlike
the older tnorganlo Iron products. It Is
easily assimilated, does not Injure the
teeth, make them black, nor upset the
stomach; on the contrary. It Is a moat
potent remedy In nearly all forme of In
digestion as well as for nervous, run
down conditions. The manufacturers have
ouch great confidence In Nuxated Iron
that they offer to forfeit 1100.09 to any
; charitable Institution If they cannot take
any man or woman under eft who lacks
Iron and Increase their strength 200 per
cent or over In four weeka' time, pro
vlded they have no serious organic trou
ble. They also offer to refund your
money If It does not at least double your
strength and endurance In ten deyR'
