REBELS TAKE THE
TOWN OF JIMENEZ
Jimenez, a town of 5000 inhabitants
between Chihuahua city and Torreon,
was taken yesterday by "Constitution
alists" after a brief battle with a small
federal garrison. By success in the
attack, the insurgents have isolated the
Parral mining district, where 1500 fed
erals are located, from either rail or
wire communication. Jimenez is the
Parral branch junction point on the
main line of the Mexican Central, and
was for many weeks the headquarters
of Pacual Orlzco during the rebel cam
paign a year ago
After taking Jimenez the 'Constitu
tionalists" hurried north and drove the
federals out of Santa Rosalia, located
about midway between Jimenez and
the state capital. Major Artlz. with
about 200 men of the Santa Rosalia
garrison, took a train and rushed to
Chihuahua, followed a part of the way
by the trains of the victorious Insur
gents. Holding Jimenez and Santa Rosalia,
the "Constitutionalists" indefinitely
control all traffic to the interior of
Mexico and the Parral branch to the
west. There are many American, Eng
lish and German residents marooned at
Parral, center of a rich mining district.

GREAT KIDNEY PREPARATION

After suffering with kidney trouble
for five or six months and using sev

by several physicians, without any re
lief, I had given up hope when a friend
recommended Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root. I began using it and improved
from the beginning. After using a
few bottles, I am entirely free from
any of the effects of the trouble with
which I suffered so much. My condi
tion was so serious that I was con
fined to my bed for roost of the time
Xor five or six months. I suffered
very much with indigestion. I feel that
I am entirely cured.
I cannot praise your Swamp-Root too
highly and I never miss an opportunity
of recommending it to other sufferers.
