In Mellicents love affair with
young Pennock Mr. Smith was enor
mously interested. Not that he re
garded it as really serious, but be
cause it appeared to bring into Melli
cent's life something of the youth and
gayety to which he through t she was
entitled. He was almost as con

Mrs. Jane Blaisedll's complete recov

"But that's it that's why I want

Mr. Smith, at his table in the
corner, glanced nervously toward the
door, then bent assiduously over his
work, as being less conspicuous than
the flight he had been tempted for a
moment tovessay. But even this was
not to be, for the next moment, to
his surprise, the girl appealed direct
ly to him.
"Mr. Smitht please, won't you take
me somewhere tomorrow?"
"Mellicent!" Even Miss Maggie
was shocked now, and showed it.
"I can't help it. Aunt Maggie. I've
just got to be away!" Mellicent's
voice was tragic.
"But, my dear, to ask a gentle
man" reproved Miss Maggie. She
came to an indeterminate pause. Mr.
Smith had crossed the room and
dropped into a chair near them.
"See here, little girl, suppose you
tell us just what is behind -all this,''
he began gently.
Mellicent shook her head stubborn-
"I can't. It's too -silly. Mease let
it go that I want to be away. That's
"Mellicent. we can't do that." Miss
Maggie's voice was quietly firm. "We
can't do anything, until'you tell us
what it is."
There was a brief pause. Millicert's
eyes, still mutinous, sought first the
kindly questioning face of the man,
then the no less kindlv but 'ather
grave face of the woman. Therein a
little breathless burst it came.
"its just somthing they're all say

"What was it?" Two little red
spots had come into Miss Maggie's
"Yes, what was it?" Mr. Smith was
looking actually belligerent.
"It was just that that thev weren't

on the Russian front. Later he was
transferred ito the western front and
,,one morning was placed in an out
post. ftte arrived at the outpost at 6
a. m.. Smith relates, and at 6:15 he
was in the French trenches.
By a coincidence, he landed in a
trench occupied by his former French
regiment. "You should have seen
him grin when he recognized some
of his. old comrades," said Corporal
Smith. "And eat, too. He hadn't
eaten white bread in months.
The other escaped German soldier
with whom young Smith talked had
been made an aviator in the German
army and e deserted via the air
route at the first opportunity.

the French government, Smith told
in the letter.

spire the greatest -confidence among the pub
lic at large and serve as convincing evidence
of the genuine merit of this preparation.
The Formula of the composition of Nux
ated Iron is now being widely published snd a
careful examination of it by any physician or
pharmacist should convince him that it is of
great therapeutic value, snd one 'which we
doctors frequently could prescribe with ad
vantage to our patients." - ' - ,-
Modern methods of conking and the rapid
pace at which people of this country-live has
made an alarming increase in iron deficiency
in the blood of American men and women.
For want of iron you may be an old man at
thirty, dull of Intellect, poor In memory, nerv
ous, Irritable and all "run-don," while at
40 or KO. in the abscnee of any organie ail
ment and with plenty of Iron in your blood,
you may still be yonna in feeling, full of
life, your whole being brimming over with
energy and force
Fom.r Secretary of the
Treasury and Ex-Governor
As proof of this take the case of Former
uiu.cu DMbca uQii.kur vuaiico . ,
who at past 68 is still a veritable mountain
of tireless energy. Senator Towne says: "I
have found Nuxated Iron of the greatest
benefit as a tonic and regulative. Hence
forth I shall not be without it."
Then there is former Health Commis
sioner Win. R. Kerr of Chicago, who is
past the three score year mark, but still
vigorous, active, full of life, vim and en
ergy. Former Health Commissioner Kerr
says he believes his own personal -activity
today is largely due to, his use of Nuxated
Iron and that he believes it ought to be
prescribed by every physician and used in
every hospital in the country.
Former Secretary of the Treasury Leslie
M. Shaw says: "I have been taking Nuxated
Iron for some little time and feel justified
in recommending it as a very valuable tonic "
Iron is absolutely necessary to enable your
blood to change food. Into living tissue.
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 conse
quence you become weak, pale and sickly
looking, just like a plant trying to grow in
soil deficient in iron If you are not strong
or well you owe It to yourself to make the

or how far you can walk witnout becoming
tired. Next take two five-grain tablets of
ordinary Nuxated Iron three times per day
after meals for two weeks. Then test your

When Writing to Our AuWtiitrs
Mention Seeing i( in The Bee
Hair is by far the most conspicu
ous thing about us and is probably
the most easily damaged by bad or
careless treatment. If we are very
careful in hair washing, we will have
virtually no hair troubles. An espe
cially fine shampoo for this weather,
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair, that dissolves and
entirely removes all dandruff, excess
oil and dirt, can easily be used it
trifling expense by simply dissolving
a teaspoonful of Cahthrox (which ybu
can get at any druggist's), in a cup
of hot water. This makes a full cup
of shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy
to apply it to all the hair instead
of just the top of the head. This
chemically dissolves all impurities and
creates a soothing, cooling lather.
Rinsing leaves the scalp spotlessly
clean, soft and pliant, while the hair
takes on the glossy richness of natural
color, also a fluffiness which makes
it seem much heavier than it is.
After Canthrox shampoo, arranging
the hair is a pleasure.' Adv.
Cocoanut Oil Makes
A Splendid Shampoo
If you want to keep your hair in
good condition, be careful what you'
wash it with. i , t -'
Most soaps and prepared shampoo
contain too much alkali. This dries th
scalp, makes the hair brittleand H
very harmful. Just plain mulsifiedj ..
cocoanut oil (which, is Ipure and en
tirely greaseless) , is much better than i
the most expensive Soap or anything J
else you can use for shampooing, as ,
this can't possibly injure the hair. :
" Simply moisten your . hairwithj
water and rub it in. One or two teav '
spoonfuls will make an abundance 1 '
of rich, creamy lather, and cleanses 1 '
the hair and scalp thoroughly. The
lather rinses out easily and removes t
every particle of dust, dirt, dandruffV.
and excessive oil. The . hair 4 dries '
quickly and evenly, and it leaves it
fine and silky, bright, ; fluffy vandv
easy to manage. ' - .. f ? r"
You can get mulsified cocoanut oili.'
at most any drug store. It is very '
cheap, and a few ounces is enough
to last everyone in the family jjp
months. Adv. .,,'; ,,"
