War hasn't stopped or retarded
activities in Kansas counties for new
Bchool buildings. Nearly three mil
lions dollars were spent for new school
buildings and extensions by counties
of the state during the year ending
November 1. That is the showing

school buildings. In many of the oil
and mining towns schools are now
over taxed and the next year may see
a school building boom almost equal
to the one just ended.
Nearly Broke Record.
Kansas almost broke all records in
her school building activities for the
year, St. John declared. His reports
showed that Reno county led the
state with" improvement bonds to the
amount of $164,600, while Sedgwick
voted $135,500 and Cloud $116,000.
Some of the sparsely settled counties
in the extreme western and south
western section of the state made low
showings. Hut their school popula
tion is small and opportunities for
large bond issues are few. Grant
county and six other counties in the
extreme section of the state voted
$1,000 or less for improvements or
new buildings during the twelve
While the report does not include
minor appropriations for betterments
of huiWlinirs. the St. John statement
shows ail bond issues for school im
provement purposes. Seven of the i
small western counties offered no
bonds to the state school fund com- 1
mission during the year. All of
which is taken as an evidence of the
fact that no bonds were voted for
school purposes. Under the law bonds
must be offered to the school fund
commission before being placed on the
market. If the bonds are rejected by
the commission or cannot be taken
because of a shortage of funds or a
low interest rate, the city, county or
district may then offer the bonds for
sale on the open market.

Manhattan. Kan., Nov. 20. Is knit
ting for soldiers a. farce? Every
woman who has been asking this
question may rest assured that the
time she spends in knitting for sol
diers is well spent, in the opinion of
Miss Helen Green, instructor in do
mestic science in the Kansas State
Agricultural college. The woman who
knits articles for home use, she char
acterizes as unpatriotic.
"The argument that the manufac
turers can turn out better articles and
in a shorter time than the home
knitters is not a sound one," said Miss
Green. "The manufacturers must
now use their machinery and labor
for making munition, explosives, and
other things that warfare makes im
perative. The leisure time of count
less women thru the country may
well be utilized in knitting.
"This industry can, in a measure,
be taken" to the home and every
woman given the opportunity to utilize
her spare time profitably and do a
service to her country by contribut
ing to the comfort of the soldiers.
Every woman and girl who does not
know how to do so should learn to
knit and then knit, knit, knit, so long
as there is a need for knitted gar
ments. "Any woman who is close to a Red

Defendant Got Divorce in 1916
From Man She' Killed.
New York, Nov. 20. The trial of
Mrs. Blanca Errazuriz De Saulles,
noted as Chile's most beautiful heiress,
for the murder of her husband, John
L. de Saulles, former Tale football
star, society and clubman, at "The
Box," the Ee Saulles home at Hemp
stead Plains, L. I., on the night of
August 3, gives promise of becoming
the world's most expensive murder
Mrs. De Saulles's mother, Mrs.
Blanca Vergara de Errazuriz, and her
son are here aiding Mrs. De Saulles.
They have unlimited means. Mrs. Er
razuriz has declared that she would
spend her entire fortune, estimated
at $20,000,000, ii. defending her
daughter, and securing for her the
custody of her son, John de Saulles, jr.
The De Saulles are also prepared to
spend a fortune in their efforts to
retain the custody of the boy.
The romance of De Saulles and the
young Chilean heiress at one time in
terested two continents. Prior to his
marriage to the beautiful Chilean, De
Saulles had. twice been reported en
gaged. He declared his intsntion of
remaining a bachelor, insisting that
the rumors of his engagement were
started by college friends as a joke.
In 1910, De Saulles bearing letters
of introduction that paved his way to
the most exclusive society circles, went
to South America as the Chilean rep
resentative of the South American
Within a few months after he' met
Blanca Errazuriz he proposed. Paren
tal objections are said to have inter
fered, however, and the mother and
daughter went to Paris. De Saulles
followed them to the French capital,
and within a few months, overcame
the objections of Mrs. Errazuriz, an
the couple were married in Paris.
With his young bride, she was then
but slightly more than 16, De Saulles
returned to New York.
Named Dancer in Divorce Salt.
In July, 1916, Mrs. De Saulles
brought an action for divorce in the
New York supreme court, naming
Joan Sawyer, the dancer, and asking
t'..e custody of the little boy. During
the divorce trial evidence was pre
sented that De Saulles and the dancer
had spent much time together.
In December, 1916, Mrs. De Saulles
was granted a divorce and $300 a
month alimony. The alimony was to
be cut in half in case Mrs. De Saulles
remarried. She asked complete cus
tody of her son and permission to
take him to South America and Lon
don. This was denied. Judge Pendle
ton ordering that until the war ended,
and the submarine danger was over
the boy was not to be taken from
Mrs. De Saulles was given the cus
tody of the boy for seven months of
the year. De Saulles was to have his
son the other five -months. The de
cree further ordered that when the
child became eight years old his fa
ther was to have entire control of
Dispute Over Possession of Boy.
Mrs. De Saulles sought a modifica
tion of the decree and in filing her
affidavit to the court said:, "It is an
extremely painful position to be placed
in. I must either give up my child
and let him remain here or give up
my mother and my friends in Chile."
Later it was announced that De
Saullts and his former wife had
reached an agreement out 'of court
whereby both would hp.ve the custody
of the boy at agreed intervals.
On the night of August 3, Mrs. De
Saulles left her home at Roslyn, L. I.,
driving to the Hempstead home of
De Saulles. Witnesses say that Mrs.
De Saulles demanded of her husband,
that he immediately return the child
to her. It is said De Saulles remind
ed her of their agreement and said
she must live up to it.
A spirited quarrel ensued. De
Saulles rose to enter the house. It is
supposed Mrs. De Saulles believed he
intended to spirit the child away. As
De Saulles entered the house five
shots were fired. The shots entered
De Saulles' back and side. He was
rushed to the hospital and died thirty
Officers hurriedly summoned by
members of the De Saulles household
found Mrs. De Saulles on the lawn.
The officers say Mrs. De Saulles ad
mitted the shooting, saying she shot
her husband because "he failed to
keep his promise and return our son
Mrs. De Saulles was taken to the
Nassau county jail at Mineola and
charged with the murder. From the
first day of her arrest she pleaded
for a visit from her son, the innocent
cause of the shooting. For several
days the whereabouts of the boy was
a mystery, and not until attorneys for
Mrs. De Saulles threatened court pro
ceedings was the child taken to his
Later, acting upon a petition from
the boy's uncle, Charles A. H. De
Saulles, Surrogate Robert Fowler
signed an order directing Mrs. De
Saulles to show cause why the peti
tioner could not Be appointed general
guardian for the boy.
TANK CAR BLAST KILLS MAN.
Neodesha Blacksmith Entered Dome
With a .Hot Rivet.
Neodesha, Nov. 20. Ira Frazier, a
blacksmith in the employ of the Union
Tank Line company in their car re
pair shop in the works of the Stand
ard Oil company, here, was instantly
killed Monday when he attempted to
enter the dome o a tank car with a
hot rivet. Frank Wilson, the fore
man of the shop suffered nervous
prostration as a result of the accident
which he had witnessed and which he
deemed himself to be responsible for.
It is not known whether or not the
car had been steamed, but at any rate
some gas remained, and when the hot
rivet came in contact with the fumes,
it ignited and the explosion followed,
hurling Frazier thru the roof. His
clothes were completely torn off and
his body badly burned. He was hurled
with such force that two eight inch
rafters were broken by the impact of
his body. A wife and one child and
his parents survive.

Physicians Warn Public Against
Taking Substitutes for Nuxated Iron
Say That Ordinary Metallic Iron Preparations Cannot Possibly Give the Same
STRENGTH, POWER AND ENDURANCE
Besides, tliey may upset the digestion, disturb the secretions and thereby do far more harm than good.
Health Officials and Physicians everywhere should caution the public against
accepting these inferior products
Dr. N. H. Hornntine. Physician for ten
ears In the Department of Public Health
itnd Charitie of Philadelphia; Ir. Jame

Medical College; Ir. A. J. Newman,
former Police Surgeon of Chicago; Ir.
Ferdinand King, New York Physician
and Medical Author; Former Health
Commissioner, Wm. R. Kerr, and others
.give valuable advice and information on
the use of organic Iron as . a tonic,
strength and blood builder.
Careful investigation by physicians
among druggists and patients baa re
vealed the fact that there are thousands
of people taking iron who do not distin
guish between organic iron and metallic
iron and that such persons often fail to
obtain the vital energy, strength and en
durance which they seek, simply because
tiiey have taken the wrong form of iron.
They Beem to think iron is iron on the
same theory that a potato would be a
potato whether cooked or raw, entirely ig
noring the fact that the cooking process
makes certain important cellular changes
in the potato that renders it far more easy
of assimilation by the blood and tissues.
No one would hardly expect to derive the
same strength from eating raw potatoes
that he would from eating cooked potatoes,
yet according to the opinions of physicians
who have made a careful study of the sub
ject, taking raw, unprepared metallic iron
is a good deal like eating raw potatoes.
Therefore, physician advise those who
feel the need of a strength and blood
builder to go to their family doctors and
obtain a prescription calling for organic
Iron Nuxated Iron and present this to
their druggiBt so that there may be no
question about obtaining the proper nrtb'ie.
But if they do not wish to go to the trouble
of getting a prescription for Nuxated Iron
theu be sure to look on the label and sec
that the words Nl'XATEl IKON are
printed thereon. Not Nux and Iron nor
iny other form of iron but NUXATE1
The remarkable results produced by Nux
ated Iron and its widespread sale (it being
estimated that over three million people
annually are today using it) Iihb led to the
offering of numerous substitutes, and
physicians say that health officials ami
doctors everywhere should caution the pub
lic against accepting these substitutes
which may be nothing more than a me
tallic iron compound which may in many
cases produce far more harm than good,

hesitated about giving an opinion. This
was simply because- of my lack of confi

administration in a number of stubborn
cases wliere other tonics had utterly failed,
only served to convince me absolutely of

I personally took it I found the rapidity
with which my energy and endurance in
creased most surprising. In my opiniou
the widespread use of Nuxated Iron is
bound to make a nation of stronger men,
lovelier women and healthier children.
