Philadelphia, Pn.—Dr. Lewis, an eye
specialist of many years’ practice, says
summer time is hard on eyes because the
glare of the Sun, heat and dust injure
and weaken them. He says it is possible
to strengthen eyesight wonderfully in a
very short time by using Bon-Opto. lie

patient came to me suffering from Ble

dull expression common to such cases.
She used Bon-Opto and not only over
came her distressing condition, but so
strengthened her eyesight that she was
able to dispense with her distance

left her. In this Instance I should say
her eyesight was Improved 109 per cent.”
The doctor's advice will prove of great
value to many eye sufferers. Many

had their eyes restored. One man savs
after trying it: "I waa almost blind;
could not see to read at all. Now I can
read everything without my glasses and
my eyes do not water any more. At
night they would pain dreadfully; now
they feel fine all the time. It was like

Usually those who continue to suffer

The fleiy itching of burning

far beneath the surface of

Your eci®ma, tetter, boil*, pimples,

much discomfort by their terrifying Itch

where they can break through the akin
and set up their attack, and if yon bare
ever had any form of these skin dlaor

The reason these disorders appear so
stubborn and. bird to get rid of, is
because they are not given the proper
aort of treatment. In other words, the
irritation and itching becomes so intense
that the patient thinks ojjiy of rellevtng
this discomfort, instead of directing his
efforts toward getting rid of the cause of
it all. Hence the constant use of lotions,
salves, soaps and ointments can

that thousands who wear glasses can
now discard them in a reasonable time
and multitudes more will be able to
strengthen their eyes so as to be spared
the trouble and expense of getting
glasses. Eye troubles of many descrip

following the simple ruleii.
Go to any active drug store and get
a bottle of Bon-Opto tablets. Drop one
Ron-Opto tablet in a fourth of a glass
of water and allow to dissolve. With
this liquid bathe the eyes two to four
times daily. You should notice your
eyes clear Up perceptibly right from the
start and inflammation will quickly dis
appear. If your eyes are bothering you
even a little, take steps to save them

GREAT MEDICINE
AND FINE lONIC
Frank Featherstone Ex
preoses His Opinion of
Pepgen As Result
of Experience.
Frank Featherstona, 6540 Broadway,
Indianapolis, bns been a resident of the
Hooslor capital for more than half a
century—-fifty-five years, to oe exact. He
Is 06 years old.
"My stomach, heart and liver were
giving me trouble,” says Mr. Feather-1
stode. "I felt vcfc bad for a number or
months. My worst trouble was a high
blood pressure. My heart beat very fast
and I had a feel'-ng of faintness and
dizziness. The blood pressure was so
high that It caused the bursting of a
blood vessel back of my eye. My nose
would frequently bleed.
“A neighbor recommended Pepgen to
me. It has put me In good shape again.
My stomach Is bo much better. The
blood pressure Is normal and mv heart
action is quiet. I don’t have dizzy spells
nor the pains In my pack that previously
caused agony.
"I want to recommend Pepgen because
T think It is a great medicine and a fine
tonic.”
Pepgon is a splendid tonic for aged
people whose systems need stimulation
to perform thetr functions efficiently.
Pepgen differs from the general run of
tonics. It contains nothing but natural
extracts from plant life, among which
are peppermint leaves, Peruvian bark
from which quinine Is made, black co
hosh, gentian, fringe tree bark, cascara
iind a large number of other vegetable
ingredients. All are treated according to
the Pepgen process. Its efficiency Is
due to the skill of the Pepgoa chemists'
work with natural remedies.
Pepgen may be obtained at Henry ,J.
Huder’s drag stores. Washington ami
Pennsylvania streets, Illinois and Mlchl- j
gan streets, or from any other first class]
drug store. —Adg, j
“Poppn Syrs'y
Pet Pep in He,”
Says Carpenter
. ,
A. & HEATH.
“One of my friends remarked the othee
day that the Pepgen I told %lm I was
taking had certainly put pep In me and
be surely spoke the truth. It has done
wonders.”
This is the way A R.'Heath, 1943 Hill
side, Indianapolis, expressed himself re
garding the new remedy that Is causing
so much comment nowadays,
.ilr. Heath Is a carpenter and mighty
glad to be able to ply his vocation regu
larly.
"For a year or more I suffered from
troubles affecting my siomach and kid
neys together with rheumatism and very
much nervousness. I had the flu and
when I got over it I remained extremely
weak.
| “I felt draggy and worn out all the
time and sometimes pains In my back
would bo very severe. My nerves were
Jumping and I could not get nearly
enough sleep. My appetite was poor
and there were many things I did not
dare eat at all.
"I am happy to scy that Pepgen ha*
put me in fine shape again. This rem
edy bas certainly deserved my highest
recommendation. It regulated my kid
ney* and my nerves quieted down. I
am not troubled with rheumatism now
and I gneas I can eat almost anythin?.
My stomach is right.”
Believing that Tepyen will do for
ethers what it has done for him, Mr.
Heath recommends It for those who
suffering with complaints similar to hi*
own.
Pepgen contains no alcohol nor any
thing else that is injurious. There Is no
secret abont its formula. Tne content*
are printed on every package. Th® j
reason for its remarkable results, as j
attested by tbe experience of thousand*:
who recommend it. lies in the fact that .
the Pepgen chemists have assembled a j
number of natural remedies to form a
single invigorating medicine that bene
fits the whole system.
Pepgen may be obtained at nrnry 3.

GRATEFUL WIFE
PRAISES PEPGEN
Mrs. Roy Whitcomb Tells
of the Benefit it Has
Been to Her Husband.
“I feel very grateful for the benefit
that my husband derived from Pepgen.”
says Mrs. Boy Whitcomb, 1005 Shef
field, Indianapolis
Knowledge of this remedy came to the
Whitcombs through the recommendation
of a friend who was aware of Mr.
Whitcomb’s .condition. Having bene
fited, they are In turn Iglad to pass along
the good news In order that others may
be helped similarly. And It Is with
that Idea that the statement la pub
lished, as It will serve to reach so
many more than could be given the In
formation by spoken words as the op
portunities might occur.
“My husband had the flu,” says Mrs.
Whitcomb, "and it left him In a weak
ened condition and with a chronic
cough. In fact he had not been In good
shape for the last few years. His
stomach, kidneys and liver were, af
fected ; he was nervous.
"After meals he would compalln of
sourness and at times actual agony In
his stomach. He would roll and toss
In his sleep and he would also have
‘night sweats.’ Some nights he would
not get any sleep at all. His color
was very bad; a murky yellow. He said
he had a dull aching all over Ills back.
"Since a friend recommended Pepgen
to my husband and he acted on the
advice, he feels so much better. It is
the one thing that ever gave him rear
relief. His stomach, liver end nerves
are all in better shape. I know this
not only because of what he says but
from tho way ho acts. It Is certainly
gratifying to see how much he has Im
proved.”
Pepgen has given thousands wbnt
amounts to practically anew lease on
life. It Is a wonderful remedy for con
stipation and like disorders. It Is a
compound of lngredlcns of long rec
ognised value scientifically put togetaer
according to the new Pepgen pro-css.
Py;en can be obtained at Henry J.
Drug Stores, Washington and
Peiffgylvania streets, Illinois and Michi
gan streets, or from any other first class
drug store. —Adv. .
