Ib easily explained. Without the vote
of membora.ot.Congross from thlsjsec-J
tlon tho defense program has small
chance ql success;. For geographical
reasons, principally, the people of this
section are more orjess apathetic on
the question of proparedness With
many square miles' of tnountalh and
plain separating them from' the ftea
' coast they find It hard lo get the point
of view of the seaboard States and to
fear tho possibilities of Invasion by a
The extent to which this apathy still
exists, not only In tho Middle WeBt,
but In certain sections of the South,
Is proved by the situation in Congress.
There all Is chaos on the subject Tho
1 Democrats from these sections either
' have small sympathy for the Admin
istration program, or are openly hos
tile. Thews is no leadership, and tho
power of the President to hold mem
bers in lino is not as strong as It was
, at the beginning of the Administra
tion. Feeling no pressure from' home
In behalf of preparedness, these DemO-
. crats are many of them "off the res
ervation." And they hold the situation
more or less In their hands.
For this condition many of he Admin,
iRtratlon leaders are directly blaming
the president. Tho preparedness policy
Is threatened with defeat, they say,
i principally because the President has
not taken on" the task of creating pub
lic sentiment but has left It for the
public itself to create n public more or I
less mystified and bewildered toy a dis
cord of opinions that emanate from
Congress. Acdordlng to these friends
of the President, had he from the first
kept the public constantly advised of
. what he Is trying to accomplish, he
would have minimized all programs- but
the one that hears tho stamp of Ad
ministration approval. And because
they bellevoMhat thcre'is still chanco
for thiB to be done, they hay at last
"minded, the President to go before
the country and prove that his heart Is
la tho program. They feel that, having
reversed himself , compIcte.lv in twelve
months' time on .(he need of belter pre
paredness he should go the Urol; to con
vince tho country that his present' views
Fight Popular ITien .
At the time that tho President re
versed himself and adopted the causo
(of preparedness the Isbuo was un-j
doubtedly a popular one. It was at tho
hjlght of the crisis following the Blnk-
of the IiUsltanla, when war with
irmany was more Imminent than
fny people now recall, that the Presl
nt gave notice of his change of
nt, A year previous. In an address
fore Congress, he liad pooh-poohed all
Ik of- bigger army and navy, and laid
ress on what could bo expected from
e "citizen soldiery."
Vow, bo gave It to be understood that
had changed his opinions, and in
. ..anglng he broke Anally from the in
lluence of Bryan. At the time the break
with Bryan did not appear serious.

Administration quarters that so long ns

lcss of the one-torm plank, nnd regard
less of qther objections raised ugalnst
him. Recently, however, there, has been
a slight readjustment of views.

and prosperity could, swing the ejection

wondering how 'long prosperity might

with no high tariff to protect the coun

Such a situation, developing suddenly
between now and election time would.
It Is pointed out, rob the Democrats of
their present ndantnge i.nd leave tnem

vulnerable achievements. Should, on top
of this, the Administration emerge from
the preparedness light, beaten nnd with
forces divided, it is believed that there
would be little, If any, hope of success
In November. Tho situation, the Ad
ministration leaders believe, Is up to
the President, and upon tho results of
his coming tour throughout the coun

You Can Tell the People Who
Have Iron in Their Blood
-Strong Healthy, Vigorous Folks
Doctor Nn ,Ordlnnr N'uxated ron
Will Make Nervous Itundorrn People

lime In Many Case.
NEW YORK. N. T. "One glance is
enough to tell which pooplo have Iron
in their blood." said Doctor Saucr. a
specialist of this city, in a recent dis
course. They are tho ones that do and
daro. Tho others are in tho weakling
class. Sleepless nights spent worrying
over supposed ailments, constant dos
ing with patent medicines and narcotics
for nervous weakness, stomach, liven or
kidney disease and useless attempty to
brace up with strong coffee or other
stimulants are what keep them suffer
ing nnd vainly longing to be strong.
Their real trouble Is lack of iron in tho
blood. Without iron the blood has no
power to change food into living tis
sue, and therefore nothing you eat docs
you any good; you don't get tho strength
out of it. Tho moment Iron is suDnlled
the multitude of dangerous symptoms
dunppear. x nave seon dozens or nerv
ous, rundown people who wero olllnir all
the time, double and even triple their
strength and endurance and entirely get
rid of every sign of dyspepsia, liver
and other troubles In from ten to four
teen 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 are not strong or well vou owo
It to yourself to make tho following
test: See how long you can work or
hoSv far you can walk without becoming
tired. Next take two five-grain tablets
of ordinary nuxated Iron three times
per day after meals for two weeks.
Then test your strength again and see
for yourself how much .vou have sained
There Is nothing like good old Iron to
put color In your cheeks and sound,
heaitbv flesh on vour bones. But you
must take Iron in a form that can be
easily absorbed and assimilated like
nuxated iron if you want it to do you
any good, otherwise It may prove worse
than useless. '
NOTE Nuxated Iron recommended above
by Or. Saucr, Is one of the newer organic
Iron compounds. Unlike the older Inorjanlc
iron products. It la easily assimilated. dow
not Injure the teeth, mako them black, nor
