What would you feel If this country wcro Invaded by a foreign force? I don't caro If Intervention came from heaven tho American people would not like It. Why, If angels from tho skies occupied New Tork city the people there and Americans all over tho nation would object to It "It Is Just so In Mexico.

Alberto Martero. brother of the slnln President of Mexico and a fight ing member of tho powerful family which has been active an aiding the Constitu tionalist causo. explained yesterday the position of himself and his family In the present struggle. His statements were brought forth by despatches published In yesterday morn ing's papers from Kl Paso and Washington attributing tho Vllla-Carranza split to the Intrigues of His family It was said In the despatches that the Madcros, who are very large landholders. aro opposed to tho Constitutionalist plan to divide tho land.

Carranza, whereupon It was declared thut no one els In the Constitutionalist cause had a right to give him orders, to Interfere with his campaign or to with hold any asslstanco from him that he desires. Tho last acknowledgment Is taken to mean that Gen. Villa ranks next to Carninra and, under that Interpretation, will command in the campaign at San I.uls Potosl and in tho south. It Is believed hero that all differences havo been ar ranged with the greatest good faith and patriotism, and that a distinct spirit ot encouragement Is manifest. Gen.

HARD COAL NO SMOKE COMFORT Stand Up and Deliver An automobile tire must "stand up" and "deliver" mileage enough to justify its first cost, or its first cost at any price is a joke. "First cost" saving is an "ostrich way" of figuring tire economy the only true way is to figure on the ultimate cost of your tire service. Automobile owners learn this in time Die quicker they learn it, the quicker will they learn to buy Business Basis Tires That a tremendous majority of automobile owners have learned how to buy automobile tires is proved by the fact that today "Nobby Tread" Tires are the largest selling anti-skid tires in the world. "Nobby Tread" Tires do two things they give more mileage and they prevent skidding. And remember this investigations prove that with "Nobby Tread" Tires punctures are 90 less than with the average tire. Based upon their remarkable mileage records l ires NoTread are now sold under our regular warranty perfect workmanship and material BUT any adjustments are on a basis of 5,000 Affiles Thousands upon thousands of veteran motorists now use "Nobby Tread "Tires on their front and rear wheels through all seasons, because they give real anti-skid protection and the lowest cost per mile.
