Aerial Queen with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey
Circus, Here Next Saturday.
Little Miss Muffct
Sat on a tuffet.
Eating of curds ani whey
There came a great spider
And sat down beside her.
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
Of all -the aerial artists with the
great Ringling Brothers and Barnum
& Bailey circus none perform mora
hazardous feats than Lily LeitzeK
Tiny of figure, with golden hair, and
dressed In the fluffiest of costumes,
she daily ascends to tlie dome of the
"world's biggest big top." there to
execute the most intricate of gyra
tions including a giant "half flange".
This means that she literally tosses
her body over her own shoulder often
as many as 100 times while suspend
ed in mid-air. The most dangerous
part of Miss Leitzel's act is acmom
plished when there is no net beneath
to break a possible fall.
Those who have seen this remark
able girl doubtless conclude that she
knows no fear. Yet she never as
cends to her lofty place without a
shudder. The reasons for her dis
comfiture are of two kinds spiders
"Laugh if you will," Bays Miss
Leitzel. "but I must confess to an
absolute horror of the litrtle beasts.
You see spiSers and grasshoppers are
frequently carried skyward when the
terns are Jsed from the ground, and
I just lu - that some day one of
the horrid things will take a noUon
to light upon me while I am doing
my act. And if it does. I know I'll
just die of fright."
High-air performers are great in
number on this season's program of
the big double circus. In all, more
than GOO men and women perform
ers will be seen here, and In addition
the Ringling Brothers will exhibit
three steel arenas filled with won-
aertm wild ammal acts, 30 trained
Rarbary stallions anl many other En
tirely new acts. Performances are to
be given next Saturday.
TO HOLD REUNION
The 38th Regiment of T7. S. Regu
lars, will hold their second annual
reunion in the Langley Hotel, 123
129 West 44th Street, Xew York City,
JVInnday. July IS. this being the third
anniversary of the Second Battle of
the Marne, in which the 38th In
fantry, according to General Persh
ing, won undyintr fame as a fighting'
unit of Uncle Seam's army.
General Pershing; in his report to
the President, stated that "A single
regiment of the Third Division wrote
one of the most brilliant pages in our
military history on this occasion. It
prevented the crossing at certain
points on it front, while on either
flank, the Germans had gained a
footing pressed f crward. Our men
firing in three directions met the
German attack with counter attacks
at critical points, and succeeded in
throwing; two German divisions into
complete confusion, capturing 800
The 38th was made up erf men
from all parts of the United States
and was organized in Syracuse, .N.
June. 1917, from the existiing units
of the army at that time and was
trained in Camp Greene, N. C. land
ed in France April 1 4. 1918. and
went into action on the Marne river
opposite Chateau-Thierry on Me
morial Day, 1918, along with other
units of the Third Division, which wcs
the only American division to ever
fteht in the city of Chateau-Thierry
itself. The 38th was decorated with
the Croix de Guerre with the palm
and christened "The T"ock of the
Marne' r-y the French General Dou
gert. While in Germany the men of
the regiment made a collection to
?uild a monument to their departed
comrades. It was decided to erect
the monument in the city of Syracuse,
N. Y.. and the people of that city gave
the land for the monument. The
regiment, which is now stationed at
Camp Pike. Ark., was ordered to Syr
acuse for the dedication and former
members from all over the states at
tended and a great many are expected
for the reunion in New York City.
General Pershing has telegraphed
the committe in charge that he will
be there, as well as Robert G.
Woodside, at present commander-in-chief
of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars of the United States. Captain
Woodside distinguished himself at
the Battle of the Marne. Others who
have accepted are Gen. Howze Dick
man, more familiarly known as Daddy
Dickman ; Col. U. G. McAIexander,
who commanded the 38th on the
Marno, and Col. Adams, who was in
command in Germany.

Oregon, was here on one of these oc
casions. BTe went four times to the

amount of soap and toilet water.
"If it were not for the packing

Daily Express today printed a report
that the British government has sent
a message to Japan proposing that
the Anglo-Japanese alliance remain
in force for three months after July
while the Imperial Conference is dis

IS TO LAY
The cornerstone of the new Ixu
vain university library which is beinjf
constructed upon plans by Whitney
Warren, a New York architect will
be laid by an American. Dr. Nichol
as Murray Butler, president of Col
umbia univensi-ty some time late in
Tha rebuilding of the raroous libra
ry burned and sacked by the Ger
man army in 1914, is being financed
at a cost of $500,000 by popular
American contributions, through a
committee which includes President
Butlqu Presidents I3wel! of Har
vard And Hibbon of Princeton uni
versity. J. P. Morgan. Bishop Wil
liam T. Manning. Elihu Root, Charles
W. Eliot and many other prominent
Americans. The committee has not
yet obtained all the funds needed to
complete the work.
The ceremonies of the laying of the
cornerstone will be attended by Car
dinal Mnrcirr, and men famous in the
field of Philosophy, science and let
ters, as well as representatives of the
committee of tyenty-nino nationali
ties which undertook a short time af
ter their destruction, to restore the
magnificent university buildings.
The new library will occuy a dif
ferent site from the original structure
and will not be a copy of the splen
did Flemish building that was des
troyed. Such a restoration, commit
tee members said, would have involv
ed too large an expenditure of money
and effort in the copyinsr of the del
icate archelogical detail of the li
brary that wai sacked.

"Tack of iron in the blood not only makes a
nan a physical and mental weakling, -nervous,
irritable, easily fatigued, but it utterly robs
him of that virile force, that stamina and
strength of will which are so necessary to suc
cessand powerin every walk of life," says Dr.
Tames Francis Sullivan, formerly physician of
Bellcvue Hospital (Outdoor Dept.), New York,
and the Westchester County Hospital. It
may also transform a beautiful, sweet-tempered
woman into one who is cross, nervous
and irritable. I have strongly emphasized the
great necessity of physicians making blood
examinations of their weak, anaemic, run
down patients. Thousands of persons go on
year after year suffering from physical weak
ness and a highly nervous condition due to lack
of sufficient iron in their red blood corpuscles
without ever realizing the real cause of their
trouble. Without iron in your blood your food
merely passes through the body something
like corn through an old mill with rollers bo
wide apart that the mill can't grind.
'For want of iron you may be an old man
at thirty, doll of intellect, poor in memory,
nervous, irritable, and all 'run down, while
at 50 or 60 with plenty of iron in your blood
you may still be young in feeling, full of life,
your whole being brimming over with vim
and energy. i
But be sure the iron yon take is organic iron
Nuxated Iron and not metallic iron which
people usually take. Organic iron Nuxated
Iron is like- the iron in your blood and like
the iron in spinach, lentils and apples, while
metallic iron is iron just as it comes from the
cttOBL of strong acids on small pieces of iron
filings and is therefore an entirely different
thing from Nuxated Iron. Nuxated Iron rep
resents organic iron in such a highly concen
trated form that one dose 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
baked apples. It is like taking extracts of beef
instead of eating pounds of meat.
Over 4,000,000 people annually are using
Nuxated Iron. It quickly helps make rich
red blood, revitalize worn out exhausted
nerves and, give increased strength and
energy. Yonr money will be refunded by
the manufacturers if it does not produce satis
