To Make Rich
Red Blood
Revitalize your worn-out ex
hausted nerves and increase
your strength and endurance
take Organic Iron; not metallic Iron which
people usually take, but pure orga;>ic iron —
Nuxated Iron—which is like the iron in your
blood and like the iron in spinach, lentils and
apples. One dose of Nuxated Iron is estimated to
be approximately equivalent (in organic iron
content) to eating one-half quart of spinach,
one quart of green vegetables or half a dozen
apples. It is like taking extract of beef instead
of eating pounds of meat. Nuxated Iron is
partially predigested and ready for almost im
mediate absorbtion and assimilation by the
blood.while metallic iron is iron just as it cornea
from the action of strong acids on small pieces
of iron filings.
Over 4,000,000 people annually are using
Nuxated Iron. It will not injure the teeth nor
disturb the stomach. A few doses will often
commence to enrich your blood. Your money
will be refunded by the manufacturers if you
do not obtain satisfactory results.
Beware of substitutes. Always insist on hav
ing genuine organic iron—Nuxated Iron.
Look for the letters N. I. on every tablet.

Secretary Davis Points Out
2,000,000 More Are Now
Earning Their Wages
WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.—1Those
who are disturbed over the 5,735,000
unemployed of today overlook that
in 1014 there were 7,000,000 out of
work, a larger percentage of which
were actual bread winners, Secretary
Da\is said today.
Declaring that the country has
just passed through a period when
every effort was made to induce
women and others who had not
worked for salaries before, to work
and save starving Europe, he said
present wage scales include many
upon whose wages there are no de
“While we have our unemployed
let us not forget the twelve million
still at work,” he said.
A lurther interesting fact was
made known that $500,000,000 is
now available, in the form of funds
already issued or appropriated by
the states, counties and municipali
ties for public works.
Discussing efforts to relieve the
situation, he said the unemployment
service of the department of labor
was doing all it could. During the
harvest, he said, it sent 55,000 and
60,000 to the farms and kept them
moving as the harvest season moved
KEYPORT. Sept. 14:—Coronal
Council No. 14 56, Royal Arcanum,
has begun a campaign for members,
live teams of five men each having
been appointed, the captains being:
Team 1, Richard Coogan; Team 2,
Roland C. Dey; Team 3, Ernest
Dunham; Team 4, Fred White; Team
5, A. A. Philo.
The contest closes March 31, 1922,
when a prize will be awarded the
team having secured the largest
number of candidates. The council
will also attend Co-So-To night at
Metuchen September 30 and hopes
to capture one of the prizes especial
ly in the new membership campaign.
The State Highway Commission is
at work putting two toot shoulders
on each side of the Lincoln Highway
through this place. The work has
been needed for sometime and will
greatly improve the highway. The
shoulders are of crushed stone
which is held in place by a penetrat
ing material made for this purpose.
Alfred Appleby, Republican can
didate for the assembly, visited Me
tuchen yesterday seeking supporters
here. As Metuchen is considered a
dry town and Mr. Appleby is a dry
candidate it is expected that he will
receive considerable support here.
Bennie Schiff, who drives a vege
table wagon in the borough, was ar
rested some time ago for allowing
his horse to wander about the
streets. Recorder C. C. Weber at
the time fined him $5.50, which
Schiff claimed he could not pay. but
would pay within a few days. Yes
terday he was taken before the re
corder for not having paid his fine.
Recorder Weber gave him the pre
ference of going to the workhouse
or paying the fine. Schiff paid
the fine.
Alfred D. Hyde has sold to B. II.
Hill of Perth Amboy, the Milton
A. Edgar house. Mr Hill will take
possession at once. Mr. Edgar has
moved to Plainfield. Mr. Hyde has
sold to F. M. Potter a plot on Hill
side avenue 60x300, on which Mr.
Potter will erect a residence. Mr.
Hyde reports a big demand for
rent and sale in this borough,
which he is unable to supply.
The New Star Company of New
ark recently purchased through Mr.
Hyde 395 acres at Iselin. This land
was divided up into lots of which
1,500 have already been sold. Five
new houses are now in course of
construction on the property.

Animal Went to Church After
Roaming About the Brainy
METUCHEN, Sept. 14—Nick Sa
lerno, a barber of this place, lost his
goat yesterday and before it was
found nearly all of Metuchen was on
the hunt for it. A period of fifteen
minutes was consumed in the hunt
for the animal and it would proba
bly have taken longer than this to
find it had not the goat been of the
opinion that the safest place in Me
tuchen was at church and wandered
to within a few feet of the Methodist
church, where it was captured.
Salerno is used to having people
get his goat, but when he thought
that something had happened to the
goat he intended to send to friends
in New York, he was a very much
disappointed man. He spread the
alarm about the business section
and business was dirupted for the
time being. The hunt took the peo
ple up and down Main and Middle
sex streets before the goat was lo
cated near the Methodist church.
The goat escaped when some chil
dren opened the door of the house
in which it was kept.

The County Vocational School on
Bertrand avenue, of which John M.
Shoe is principal, opened this morn
ing with an enrollment of eighty
eight boys. Of this number sixty-six
are pupils who attended the school
last term and twenty-two are new.
The popularity of the institution
proved itself before the doors of the
building opened at 8:30 when besides
the number of boys who were al
ready enrolled, fully 100 others who
had not made application flocked to
the building in hope of a tardy ac
ceptance. Because of the lack of
facilities the majority of the crowd
was necessarily turned away after
registering in case of future vacan
cies. Up until today there had been
ninety-eight applications for admit
tance, ten more than the number it
had been decided to take, and the
eighty-eight who are now regular
Because of tlie industrial depres
sion the number of applications has
been greater this year than ever be
fore but the authorities see no way
of taking on a larger enrollment
than has been already decided upon.
The courses at the vocational
school this year will be practically
the same as last, and ealeulated to
give the boys a practical understand
ing of the work that will fit them
for a future. Machine shop prac
tice, mechanical draughting and in
dustrial chemistry as well as related
academic subjects are taught.
The graduates of this school arc
now working in many of the plants

from the vocational school have

Tlie belief, tha*. in order to get well, you have to put something into
your body or cut something out. is deeply rooted in the human mind.
Attempts 'to replace this method by something more natural and less
harmful in its consequences, have not been very successful, because they
were built upon the same foundation as medical science, i. e. fighting the
disease instead of removing its cause. They could not do different, for
the cause was not known.
No discovery on that foundation has been able to reduce the number
of diseases, and remedies, no matter how widely and effectively heralded,
have at times consequences worse than the disease they were to f.ght.
\ grave suspicion has already been expressed by medical men with re
gard to a possible connection between vaccination and the spread of can
Chiropractic is a science built upon an absolutely different foundation.
It PROVES that we have WITHIN us everythin*? necessary to restore
our health, and that disease is merely the EFFECT of an obstruction to
natural forces, namely to the flow of life impulses from the brain to bod
ily organs. Fighting a diease, therefore is fighting an effect without touch
ing the cause When Chiropractic adjustments remov • the cause, nature
restores health.
Like all ideas upsetting accepted t aehlngs. Chiropractic is met with
Incredulity by the general public, and with ridicule by established science.
So was for instance. Harvey’s discovery of a blood circulation in the
arteries.’ Science taught the presence of air (artery—airpipej, yet the
blood always was circulating.
But no ridicule has ever prevented the final victory of an idea that
was right and in the meantime. Chiropractic will continue to benefit
those that have the courage of discarding their prejudice. Consultation
