KlhurchhiU'e Immortal civil war story, ,
fin the Grand theatre on Friday and ,
Saturday. Replete with incidents of (
the stirring days antedating the abollftion
of slavery, "The Crisis" Is not ,
only a magnificent screen spectacle, ,
{tut In reality a photo-chronicle of the *
'exciting times preceding and during "
*the Rebellion.
" The scenes of "The Crisis" are all .
laid In and around St. Louis. The J
characters of both the play and pic-1 >
ture, as everybody knows, were taken jl
, from real life. In addition to these,:
many historical personages?such asj
Lincoln, Grant, Sherman and Sherl- j j
dan?are introduced. The historic hat- <,
tie of Vlcksburg has also been visualized
with marvelous fidelity and | .
attention to detail. The scenes for
this portion of the picture were taken ]
on the Mississippi river and on the I
actual ground fought for, a half cen-! (
tury ago, by the boys in blue and grey. .
The company of players in the prln-1
cipal roles of "Tho Crisis" are said j,
to have been chosen with special fit-1 j
ness for the difficult parts they as- j
some. Samuel Drane plays Abraham ' (
Lincoln and Cecil Holland, General j,

according to directions rendered a sur-;
prising service. I found my eyes re- j
markably strengthened, so much so I
have put aside my glasses without discomfort.
Several of my colleagues havo.
also used It and we are agreed as to
Its results. In a few days; under my:
observation, the eyes of an astigmatic
case were so Improved that glasses
have been discarded by the patient."
Eyo troubles of many descriptions
may be wonderfully benefited by the
use of Bon-Opto and if you want to
strengthen your eyes, go to any drug
store and get a bottlo of Bon-Opto
tablets. Drop ono Bon-Opto tablet In
a fourth of a glass of water and let It
dissolve. With this liquid batho the
eyes two to four times dally. You
should notice your eyes clear up perceptibly
right from the start, and Inflammation
and redness will quickly,
disappear. If your eyes bother you
oven a little it is your duty to tako
stops to savo them now before it is
too late. Many hopelessly blind might
havo saved their sight If they had cared ,
