"FULL OF PEP"
She Is Good-Looking and Gay
and Is Always Ready for
a Good Time.
Why is a girl popular? Look around
Dd see what a good time the good
looking ones have all the time. Men
seek them out and ask them to parties,
dances end entertainments. And
notice that t is not the doll-face
type real men like most, but the red
blooded girl with "pep" and happy
good nature. 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

Capital Getting to Be a News Center
WASHINGTON. 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
"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
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
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
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
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, !

while waiting for the home-coming ol

At last Mr. Blgelow said, "I dou'l

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

Will your "Good Morning
last all day?
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
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
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
Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins)
tnjuie instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling; water.
Postum Cereal (in packages of larger bulk, for those who
prefer to make the drink while the meal is being prepared)
made by boiling for 20 minutes, Sold by all grocers.
