tt|How' to Save
Your Eyes
Try this Free Prescription.
Do your eyes give you trouble? Do
you already wear eyeglasses or speo
tacles? Thousands of -ople wear
these "windows" who might easily
dispense with them. Tou may be one
of these, and it Is your duty to save
your eyes before It Is too' late. The
eyes are nsglected more than any
other organ of the entire body. After
you finish your day's work you sit
down and rest your muscles, but how
about your eyes? Do you rest them?
You know you do not. You read or
do something else that keeps your
eyes busy you work your eyes until
you go to bed. That Is why so many
have strained eyes and finally other
eye troubles that threaten partial oi
total blinAisss. Eyeglasses are mere
ly crutches they never cure. This
free prescription, which has benefited
the eyes of so irany, may work equal
wonders for you. Use It a short time.
Would you like your eye troubles to
disappear as if by magic? Try this
prescription. Go to Wilkinson &
Company or to the nearest wide
awake drug store and get a bottle of
Optona tablets fill a two-ounce
bottle with warm water, drop in one
tablet and allow it to thoroughly dis
solve. With this liquid bathe tha
eyes two to four times daily. Just
note how quickly your eyes clear up
and how soon the inflammation will
disappear. Don't be afraid to use it
It is absolutely harmless. Many who
are now blind might have saved their
eyes had they started to care for
them in time. This is a simple treat
ment, but marvelously effective in
multitudes of cases. Now that you
have been warned don't delay a day,
but do what you can to save your
eyes and you ara likely to thank us
as long as you live for publishing
this prescription.

Stop Eating Meat for a While If
Your Bladder la Troubling
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery In the kidney region
it generally means you have been
eating too much meat, says a well
known authority. Meat forms uric
acid which overworks the kidneys In
their effort to filter it from the blood
and they become sort of paralyzed and
loggy. When your kidneys get slug
gish and clog, you must relieve them
like you relieve your bowels remov
ing all the body's urinous waste, else
you have backache, sick headache,
dizzy spells your stomach sours,
tongue Is coated, and when the weath
er is bad you have rheumatic twinges.
The urine is cloudy, full of sediment,
channels often get sore, water scalds
and you are obliged to seek relief two
or three times during the night.
Either consult a good, reliable phy
sician at once or get from your phar
macist about fouf ounces of Jad Salts
take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act flne.
This famous salts is made from the
I acid of grapes and lemon Juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize
acids in the urine so it no longer ir
ritates, thus ending bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is a life saver for regular
meat eaters. It is inexpensive, can
not injure and makes a delightful,
effervescent lithia-water drink.

CHTHUAIHUA, Mexico, March 30.—
Noontime of a cold raw day, In the
mountains a score of Mexicans sit
ting around a campflre, their guns
and cartridge belts beside them an
American miner rides up to the fire.
"Welcome, senor," says the captain.
The Mexicans feed the newcomer.
The time comes for him to go. He
starts off over the mesa on his horse
after hearty goodbyes. "Wait, senor,
one minute," shouts the captain. The
American obeyB the captain comes
running up to him. "When you go to
Chihuahua don't tell Villa that you
saw us sitting around the campflre at
noontime. You see he sent us out to
find the bandit Castillo. He would
not like to know we were resting at
noontime. We were only talking over
what we had better do to find that
diablo Castillo. But don't tell Villa,
This is only one of the hundred inci
dents that shows the tremendous
power that Villa exerts over his sol
diers. All of Villa's soldiers are vol

can capital, is seizing farmer toys In
the market places and dragging fath
ers from their families at midnight to
get soldiers, Villa is getlng them in
this fashion:
"We wish to Join your army," say
two Mexicans, approaching the rebel
leader. "Did you ever fight before?"

Villa's looting in a store in Manaca
was the height of orderly pillage. He
had given orders that any man who
looted would be shot, and five men
were killed that day. But he learned
that a Spaniard, owner of the largest
store In town, had been working
against the rebels. The next day,
Villa, himself went to the store and
took possession. Squads of twenty
men were permitted to enter the store
at a time. 'Hand down those hats,"
said Villa, pointing to a supply of
broad-brimmed Stetsons. The clerk
brought down a hundred or more
"Come here, Jose," said Villa,
to a soldier. "Take off your hat."
Then Villa slammed a new Stetson
onto the head of the happy soldier,
and twisted it about critically.
"Doesn't fit you, huh? .Here try this
one," slamming on another sized hat.
AM day long and all the next day
Villa himself worked fitting coats,
trousers, shoeB, shirts and all the
things his men needed. "This isn't
looting," he explained, "It's confisca
tion of warfare." But there was an
other side to it. Villa met half a
dozen of his men, later, all dressed
up. "Got everything you want?" Vil
la asked them. "Got shoes, clotheB,
money, hats, guns, ammunition, every
thing you want?" '^Si, senor, we are
very happy and content." "Very well,
then," snapped Villa, with a dreadful
look on his face and with an oath:
"Now, I've taken care of you, but if
you don't take care of me when it
comes time to fight, I'll kill you with
my own gun."
"Why don't you quit?" a friend ask
ed Villa, one time early in the game,
at Juarez, when things looked dark
for his side. "Villa pointed across
the Rio Grande to S3 Paso. "When 1
see El Paso, with its fine buildings
and its clean homes and its clean,
well clothed, gentle children and wom
en, and then look at Juarez, with its
dobe bouses, its muddy streets, its
rotten schools and its poor ragged
children and women, it makes me mad.
Our women and children have as good
a right to fine things as the women and
children of the United States have
and it's the fault of Mexican men that
they haven't got them. We've let a
few people get everything, and we've
got to get it back again."
"There's an American, Somewhere

would like to find. "I was stranded
once," says ViHa, "in Santa Fe, Texas.
There was a price on my head in
Mexico and I didn't have a cent. I

But there's very little of the soft side
to ViUa. One of his beet friendA, an

The man's mother and sister came to
Villa he had known them from child*
hood. "You bad a mother and sis
ters," they pleaded. "Don't kill Man
uel. "I have no father, no mother, no
sisters, no brothers, no friends, no
memory," said Villa, "when the wel*
fara of my country Is at stake."
Villa doesn't drink or smoke. It'a
an old story that he first began life as
a bandit, when a rurale, a mounted
policeman, outraged his sister, and
was killed by Villa, who had to flei$
for his life. A mysterious American
girl has been his consort for several
years she is black-eyed, black-haired
and beautiful. Villa is a bad man as
far as the costumes of civilization go.
There can be no doubt of it. But he
is a strong man, who controls not
only other men, but himBelf. When
he is bad, it. isn't through weakness,
and that may be a point in his favor.
In the latter months he has begun to
pay more attention to the business
side of his revolution. Whenever h?
goes to a town, he establishes an
office. He receives his callers in a
business-like fashion, dressed in busi
ness clothes, listens impatiently
when a story is too long and then
gives his decision like a shot. And
he has never been known to change,
whether he was right or wrong. Is
Villa a killer? It's easy to answer.
He is. He has taken the lives of
scores of men, many of them in cold
blood. He has pulled Pascual Orozcos
nose, in the very presence of Orozco's
body guard hoping to get an excuse to
shoot him. He entered the city of El
Paso, with only three men and tried
to kill Guislppe Garibaldi. "Kill," is
Villa's solution of most difficulties.
He has come unscathed through a
thousand close calls just because he
is always able to get his gun out first.
Reasonably 8ure.
