Drtor Says Ordinary Nnxated Iron

Tito Week's Time In Many
XEW YORK, X. Y. "One glance is
enough to tell which people have iron
in their blood." said Dr. Sauer, a
Boston physician who has studied
widely both in this country and in
Great European medical institutions,
in a recent discourse. They are the
ones that do and dare. The others are
in the weakling class. Sleepless nights

forming drugs and narcotics for nerv
ous weakness, stomach, liver or kid
ney disease and useless attempts to
brace up with strong coffee or other
stimulants are what keep them suffer
ing and vainly longing to be strong.
Their real trouble is lack of iron in
the blood. Without iron the blood
has no power to change food into liv
ing tissue and therefore, nothing you
eat does you any good; you don't get
the strength out of it. The moment
iron is supplied the multitude of dan
gerous symptoms disappear. I have'
seen dozens of nervous, rundown peo
ple who) were ailing all the time dou

endurance and entirely get rid of
every sign of dyspepsia, liver and
other trouble in from ten to fourteen
days) time simply by taking iron in
the proper form. And this, after they
had in some cases Been doctoring for
months without any benefit.
If you aTe not strong or well you
owe it to yourself to make the follow
ing test: See how long you can work
or how far you can. walk without be
coming tired. Next take two five-grain
-tablets of ordinary nuxated iron three
times per day after meals for two
weeks. Then test your strength .gain
and see for yourself how much yon
have gained. There is nothing like
good old iron to put color in your
cheeks and sound, healthy- flesh on
your bones. - But you must take iron
in a form that can be easily absorbed
and asstm'ilated like nuxated iron if
you want it to do you any good, oth
erwise it may prove worse than use

WESTERLY NEEDS AMBULANCE"
Would Prove Life-Saver in Many Accidents Walter Keegan,

Westerly Granite Attracts Attention in Elm City Jury
Fails to Agree in Ellis Case Collings-Purtill Marriage.
A group of Westerly, men were talk
ing Tuesday ' of getting subscriptions
for the purchase of a motor ambu
lance, not for the Soldiers at home or
abroad, but for the" benefit "of emer
gency cases, in "Westerly. That there
is real need of an ambulance has been
demonstrated almost every time there
is an accident that . requires hospital
treatment." -There is no public hospi
tal in Westerly, although Mrs. Wil
liam Hoxsey furnished - a nucleus of
$10,000 that" will be available when
the fund reaches $100,000. Still there
is actual need for a . modern ambu
lance here, as a real life-saver. Ac
cidents have happened - here, and the
injured have died due to delay . in
reaching hospitals at New ' London,
Providence or Norwich.
Most of these cases are sent to New
London and Providence, all' depend
ing upon the availability of train ser

persons seriously injured have been
at the station waiting an hour and
even longer for' an east or westbound
train to be taken to a hospital, and
due to delay have died while on the
With a modern mctor-driven am
bulance the service would be greatly
improved, as the injured could be de
livered at a hospital in New London
in less than an hour and in Provi
dence sooner than, by train, under the
present circumstances. It has been
suggested -that twenty cents repre
senting every -resident of the town
of Westerly would be ample for the
purchase of a high grade reliable am
bulance, and include maintenance -for
the first year. This could be readily
raised by $1 general subscriptions, ard

subject said: "I don't believe there's
a person in the town that has an in

automobile in front of his home on
Tuesday morning. The car was stop

occupants, three ladies and a chauf

home. The Keegan boy was riding in
a dump cart owned by Reuter, which
was coming in the opposite direction,
towards Westerly, and ran directly in

the accident was unavoidable. The
automobile owner, however, expressed
willingness to pay all resultant ex
penses. Telephone calls were sent to
Drs. William A. Hillard, Dr. Frank
I. Payne, and Dr. John L; May, from
different sources and they arrived in
the order named. Drs. Payne and
Hillard had rendered . first aid before
Dr. May arrived.
The boy was severely injured, and
besides many cuts and bruises, the left

it. the job was finally accomplished
by jacks and rollers., and it was plac

"Permission had to be obtained from
the city engineers to . haul the stone

streets were specified on which the
pavements were" hard enough to stand
