Without it, no matter how much or what you eat, your food merely pasiea thrugh you without doing you any good. You don't get the strength out of it, and as a conse quence you become weak, pale and sickly looking, just like a plant trying to grow in a soil deficient in iron. A patient of mine remarked to me (after having been on a six weeks course of Nuxated Iron): 'Say, Doc tor, that there stuff is like magic' "If 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 nuxated iron three timer per day after meals for two weeks. Then test your strength again and see how much you have gained.

BUY A RED CROSS BUTTON AT SIGHT Women Should Be Saying "Don't All Try to Buy at Once," to Help Out De serving Cause, V By A. R. GROH. Those Red Cross buttons ought to sell like the proverbial "hot cakes." In fact they are selling faster than any hot cakes I ever heard of. But what we want to say is that it shouldn't be necessary for the women to ask you to buv a button. There ought to be a long line of applicants at every Red Cross "recruiting sta tion." The women ought to be say ing, "Please don't push. Take your time. Have your money ready. We will sign you up as fast as possible." For it is an honor to belong to the American National Red Cross society, an honor out of all proportion to the dollar or two you pay for member ship. it is the society of humanity and mercy. Its active workers tight hun ger and distress, sickness and wound wherever they occur. Its nurses are ministering angels, its field workers face dangers on the battlefields to bring in the wounded and care for the dying. Women as Leaders. The two great figues which loom up in the splendid history of the Red Cross are women, Florence Night ingale, who was the ministering angel of the bloody battlefields of the Crimea, and our own Clara Barton, who did a similar work during the Cival war. The Red Cross is organized and actively at work today in all the na tions engaged in the great war. And in all the wars of the last fifty years the organization lias rendered in valuable service. The first war in which it came into prominence was that of 1866 between Ijcrmany, Austria and Italy. Jn the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 the Red Cross in France cared for 100,000 wounded and in Germanv there were 2,000 Red Cross committees. In the Russian-Japanese war the "white trains" supplied by wealthy nobles to the Red Cross carried 3,000 cars of material and food to the front. The Russian Red Cross stands higher than that of any other country. That of Italy is best organized for PURE REFRESHING DON'T FAIL TO TRY IT Storz Beverage can be sold anywhere without a U. S.

The Fre.ich Red Cross, like that or the United States, con tains the best trained nurses of the land. In Japan one person out of every forty is a member of the Red Cross. The American National Red Cross society is active in relief in national disasters of all kinds. It did great work, for instance, in .the Michigan tires of 1881; the Florida vellow fever of 1S88; the Johnstown flood of 1889; the Russian famine of 1891; the South Carolina tidal wave of the Armenian massacres of 18; the Spanish-American war particularly in relief of Cubans; the Galveston tidal wave of llXH); the Mont 1'elee eruption of IWJ; the San Francisco earthquake of 190o. And its work in the present war is well known. The work it has been preparing to do since we entered the war is on a colossal scale. The Red Cross has proved its value. All nations support it liberally. The noble souls ot Florence Nightingale and Clara Barton go marching on. Hurry up and bestow tllis honor on yourself by joining the Red Cross. vTise, Not Retarded, Outlay Is Good War Time Economy Wise spending, not retarded spend ing as a war-time measure, was advo cated by fthsji Alice M.
