"Valley 0 Death1' to Win the War
Omaha has a branch of the Red
Star, a charter having been issued to
,H. S. Mann, Lucien Stephens, John
R. Ringwalt, C. H. English and John
W. Welch. Although this charter has
been issued but a few days, large mem
bership donations have already been
received. The Omaha Humane so
ciety gave $50, Mrs. DeF. Richards
$50, Mr. DeF. Richards $25, Mrs.
George A. Joslyn $25 and many others
from $25 down to $1.
At last the war horse has won rec
ognition for his invaluable services.
Through the organization of the
American Red Star animal relief ani
mals in the United States army will
receive similar care in war to that
afforded humans by the American
Red Cross. The Red Star was organ

War Newton D. Baker, who wrote to

The Red Star is being developed
rapidly by the organization of
branches and auxiliaries in all the
large cities throughout the country.
Many prominent horsemen and sev

endorsed the work. The Shire club
of Chicago recently gave $500 to the
Red Star. Taft, Roosevelt, Major
General Wood and other prominent
men have heartily endorsed the move

Among the curious facts which the
American soldiers have noticed in the
European war is the eagerness of
cavalry mounts for battle and their
reluctance to leave the battlefield
after the charge. The average war
horse will chafe and stamp with im
patience while waiting for the order
to advance and at the signal will dash
forward like a grayhound released
from the leash, full of fire and fury
and neighing wildly. When he ar

Valley of Death.
If his rider falls the horse will dash
along with his fellows and crash into
the ranks of the enemy. Participants
of the far-famed charge of the Light
Brigade have related how scores of
riderless horses rushed down "the
valley of death" right up to the ;
mouths of the Russian guns and gal-1
loped back to safety with the shat
tered remnant of the brigade. Half
a dozen horses raced neck and neck
with Lord Alfrtl Paget, who roda in
advance of the line, so eager were
they to get at the enemy.
A cavalryman will tell you that his
mount knows as much of military as
he does himself The bugle calls are
all familiar to the experienced horse
and instances have been noted when
the rider's mistake was rectified by
the horse, who went through the ma
neuvers correctly, regardless of the
soldier's contrary command.
The American army will be given
similar aid by the American Red Star
animal relief, an organization founded
at the request of Secretary of War
Baker. Already the Red Star has
accomplished good work by provid
ing supplies at the numerous army
camps in this country. Thousands of
copies of the "First Aid" leaflets, deal
ing with the care of the army horse,
were supplied at the request of army
officers. Experienced agents of the
Red Star have visited camps and of
fered suggestions for the better care
of the animals detailed at the camps.

the American Humane association, is

These City Physicians Explain
Why They Prescribe Nuxated Iron
To Make Healthier Women and Stronger, Sturdier Men
NOW BEING USED BY OVER THREE MILLION PEOPLE ANNUALLY
By enriching: the blood and creating thousands of new red blood cells, it often quickly transforms the flabby
flesh, toneless tissues, and pallid cheeks of weak, anaemic men and women into a glow of health. In
creases the strength of delicate, nervous, run-down folks in 10 days' time in many instances.
IT ia conservatively estimated that over
three million people annually In this coun
try alone are taking Nuxated Iron. Such
astonishing results have been reported from
its use both by doctors and laymen, that a
number of physicians in various parts of the
country have been asked to explain why
they prescribe it so extensively, and why it
apparently produces so much better results
than were obtained from the old forms of

I believe all should know of it The men
and women of today need more iron in their
blood than was the esse twenty or thirty
years ago. This because of the demineralized
diet which now is served daily in thousands
of homes and also because of the demand for
greater resistance necessary to offset the
greater number of health hazards, to be met
at every turn."
Dr. James Francis Sullivan, formerly phy
sician of Bellevue Hospital (Outdoor Dept),
N. Y., and the Westchester County Hospital,
said : "I have strongly emphasized the great
necessity of physicians making blood exam
inations of their weak, anaemic, run-down
patients. Thousands of persons go on year
after year suffering from physical weakness
and a highly nervous condition due to lack
of sufficient iron in their red blood corpus
cles, without ever realizing the real and
true cause of their trouble. Without iron in
your blood your food merely passes through
the body, somewhat like corn through an
old mill with rollers so wide apart that he
mill can't grind.
"But in my opinion you can't make strong,
vigorous, successful, sturdy iron men by
reeding them on metallic iron. The old forms
of metallic iron must go through a semi-digestive
process to transform them into or
