Any girl who is tired and . languid and has a poor complex ion and dull eyes can improve her condition and be far happier if she will simply take Gude's Pepto-Man-gan until she has put her blood into good condition. Red blood means "full of life" and "full of life" usually means happiness. Try Gude's Fepto-Mangan and see how much better you feel.

The capital Is the greatest center for dis semination of news in the world, according to recent Investigations, which indicate that not less than 500. 000 words are sent out daily by wire, radio and mall from the offices of Washington correspondents. The amount of publicity material sent out by the various associations having headquarters here has not been esti mated, but it is nothing short of stu pendous. What 500,000 words dally means may be visualized, perhaps, by reducing that figure to newspaper pages. Roughly, there are about 1,000 word In the a vera ae newspaper column when allowance la made for a head. and 500 newspaper columns in these days of eight-column newspapers would mean a total of 62V4 pages, about the size of the Sunday edition of a typical metropolitan newspaper. Just how the 500,000 words are divided each day among the news services, correspondents and leased wires Is of Interest. The Washington correspondents' total Is roughly about 50.000 words a day by wire: the press associations send another 50,000, for there are five of these organizations, carrying 6,000 to 15,000 words each. The 50 leased wire Rervlces undoubted ly send more than 100,000 words dally, making a total Xf 200,000 words tele graphed from Washington daily. Mall service Is probably equally heavy, and writers for magazines and other periodicals who do not deal In live news probably carry some 100,000 words dally. ' Bill to Prohibit A BILL prohibiting the formation In congress of blocs, based upon particular pursuits or geographi cal locations, for the purpose of "in any way affecting legislation," has been Introduced by Representative An sorge, Republican. Senators and rep resentatives would be subject to a fine of $5,000 in case it was proved they belonged to a bloc. The bill, which would not Interfere with regularly convened caucuses of the majority and minority political parties, was framed along the lines of the Sherman act, prohibiting combina tions In restraint of trade, Mr. An- sorge said. - The proposed bill was designed, he explained, to prohibit combinations in restraint of legislation "which inher ently are more dangerous to the coun try than combination in restraint of trade." "If we are to have an agricultural bloc why not a manufacturers' bloc, a consumers bloc, and numerous geo graphical blocs?" Mr. Ansorge asked. On the other hand, Senator Capper Blocs in Congress said , the other day in the senate, among other things: "Here, Mr. President, Is the true reason why we have a group of men In congress sometimes called the farm bloc. Our entire business structure rests upon the land. The farmer not only feeds us and clothes us, but Is as a class our best customer. Without him the railroads would languish, the steel Industry perish. .Unless the fanner and the farm Industry prosper, no other Industry can. This is the task these representatives and senators from the agricultural states feel they have cut out for them." Hoover May Be Chosen to Disarm China HERBERT HOOVER, now secre tary of commerce, may head an international commission to ais- arin China. China now has the largest standing army or group of armies In any nation In the world. The exact number of troops Is not known even to the minister of war In Peking, .but It Is estimated to be between 1,500,000 and 2,000,000. These troops are under various "tu- churas," or provincial military gov ernors, who either are only nominally under Peking or else are In open de fiance of the Chinese government. The "tuchuns" levy and collect taxes, force direct contributions from the Inhab itants, obtain loans from local bank era virtually at the point of a gun, print and circulate paper money of their own making, graft and "squeeze" and wage wars as independent war lords while Peking looks on In utter helplessness. Members of the Chinese delegation here admit little can be done toward getting China back on her feet until these "paper tigers" are destroyed. The most powerful among the "tu chuns" do not hesitate to wring funds from the Peking government, when there is any money to wring, and openly dictate to the president and his cabinet. China cannot demobilize the armies of the "tuchuns" alone, so It lias been advanced In conference circles that the Pacific powers, including China, should get together In the matter. It Is proposed that a disarmament commission be named and that the sum of $50,000,000 he loaned to China as a demobilization fund. Secretary of Commerce Hoover Is mentioned as chairman of this commission. Representatives of the commission would work with the Chinese govern ment and aid in the work of disarm ing the "tuchun" armies. Soldiers would be demobilized, given back pay they are In most cases many months In arrears and a tmall bonus and sent back to their home provinces. There they would be put to work on much-needed public works highways, railroads, canal widening and the like. Romance of the Red Cross Building IN APRIL, 18G1. when President Lln 'coln issued his call for 75,000 vol unteers, two young men, Francis Barlow and James A. Scryraser, en listed in the engineer corps of the Twelfth New York. At Antletam Ser geant Barlow was badly wounded, and his wife, a member of the sanitary commission, Qf which the American Red Cross is a lineal descendant, went to the battle front thnt she might be at his side to nurse hltn. At Gettys burg Sergeant Barlow again was wounded, and this time was left be hind Confederate lines. At daybreak one morning, In spite of watchful sen tries, she succeeded In reaching her wounded husband and In remaining with him until he recovered. This brave and faithful woman died in 18C4, a victim of typhus contracted In her untiring labors among the sick and wounded fighting men. To the heart-broken husband she typified the splendid spirit of American women in war time, and shortly before 'his death, in 1806, Major General Barlow predicted, in the presence of his com- lade-hi-arms, Captain Scrymser, that one day a grateful nation would rear to the memory of the heroic women of both the North and the South a splen did tribute. In 1911 Captain Scrymser secured for the project the indorsement of the New York commandery of the Mili tary Order of the Loyal Legion. It was his suggestion also that the pro posed building be made the home of the American Red Cross. Congress ap propriated $400,000 for the purpose and the 'und of $800,000 necessary1 was completed by private donations, ! lrW. WARNING ! Say "Bayer" when you buy Aspirin.

When the late John Blgelow, onct minister to France, was calling at 8 friend's bouse, be .was entertained while waiting for the home-coming ol the older people by the small daughter. At last Mr. Blgelow said, "I dou'l think I will wait for them any longer, as you see It Is getting dark." "Mr. Blgelow, what makes It get dark?" she Inquired. "Ah," he answered, "I don't think I can explain It so that a little girl could understand it." "But I know why It is." "You do? Then you explain it t tue." The blonde head nodded.

Easy to start from the breakfast table with zest and enthusiasm, but how easy is it to keep on? Does ambition last, or lag, as the day develops? The afternoon "slump" is a factor to bo count ed upon, in business or social life. Usually, there's a reason. Nerves whipped by tea or coffee won't keep on running, and they won't stand constant whipping. Many a man or woman who has wished the afternoon would be as bright as the morning has simply been wishing that the nerves wouldn't have to pay the natural penalty for being whipped with the caffeine drug. Postum gives a breakfast cup of comfort and cheer, without any penalties afterward. There's no "letting down" from Postum no midday drowsiness to make up for midnight wakefulness; no headaches; no nervous indigestion; no increase of blood pressure. Think it over. There's full satisfaction in Postum a cup of comfort for anybody (the children included), any time. You can get Postum from your grocer or your waiter today, and probably you'll begin to have better tomorrows, as so many thousands have had, who have made the change from coffee to Postum. Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins) tnjuie instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling; water.
