This is the second lnnuuumt of Pg

By W. J. Pegler
(United Prose staff correspondent)
The crowning disgrace awaited the
oldier of the American Canadian Le
gion in England, Soon after they ar
rived in & finishing camp their colonel
formerly an American officer, was ar
rested on charges of embezzlement.
Then the legion was pooled in a big mil
Itary reservoir and thereby lost alt
chance over to fight in the lino as nn
American unit. Drafts went out to re

Here la tho girl's own story: "For
years I had dyspepsia, sour stomach
and comsUimtion. 1 drank hot water

glycerine, eti"., as mixed in Adler-S-ka.

we ever sold. J. C. l'erry,
who have since been killed wore will
ing to stake anything on tho honor of
the accused colonel. Ho was their
friend they believed in him, respected
him and were sure that his fall was
ituo -to the political jobbery and jeal
ousy of another American Canadian of
ficer of high rank who had left the
American army many years before.
A Dugout Officer
. To this day that other officer novsr
has been to the front except for an oc
casional "Cook's Tour" of inspection.
Hassmussen wag bitter when I told

"I'll tell you. Ho was wounded in
the Battle of London showing off his
toy pistol to another ombusque. "
His Chaplin mustache bristled out
like a brunette tooth Ibrush.
Hassmussen finally got out to France
as a niachinegun officer in the Cana
dians. Tho "American legisn was only a
memory. Even the- name had gone into
the discard because President Wilson
hud muile quiet intimations to the Ca
nadian authorities regarding our Am
erican neutrality. All the Yank re
tained to distinguish them from other
Canadians was their modified Ameri

They dropped tho words "American
uegtion" from their insignia and the
old badges are extremely rare and com
mand a high price from souvenir hunt
Within a few weeks Rnssmussen
jumped into notice on a dark night
when ho personally led a raiding hand
ful of American Canadians against a
German advanced post. His party was
discovered by the jloche sentries in the
front lane but they scurried back un
der a sprinkling of machine gun bul
lets, bringing the outpost gnrrison as
souvenirs. When they counted noses
one American was discovered to bo'
missing. Refusing volunteers, Rass
muBson crawled (back through the wire
alone and found him wounded.
Just as he picked up the fallen lad
a Gorman hand grenade plunked in his
sliollliole. In a flash Rass seized it and
throw it back, dropping flat in the
same instant, to escape somo of the
fragments if it should go off too close
by. The grenade blew up in midair,
tho explosion, burning one or his ear
drums and a fragment wounded him
in tho arm. Then ho picked up the
wounded boy again and carried him
b'aiek to the Canadian lines. The young
ster died just as the willing hands of
his comrades reached out to take him
from the nie.jor.

I gave Nujol to a' patient who had been troubled

IT makes no difference how long you have suffered from
constipation, Nujol relieves stubborn as well as occasional
cases with equally sure and pleasant results. Start now to
use this safe and effective remedy which Dr. Page and other
eminent physicians so highly recommend and prescribe.
Nujol restores healthy bowel habits in a gentle, natural way,
without the least griping or dangerous reaction. That's be
cause Nujol contains no drug, and so causes no artificial
stimulation. Avoid harmful pills and salts that sap bowel
strength with weakening reaction. Nujol is a pure, unmixed
remedy; and pleasant to take. Perfectly safe for all. Be
"regular as clockwork " use Nujol.
