The World Demands, Strong, Vigorous,
Keen-Minded, Men and Women
It has been said of Americans that they work their habits over
Many become nervous and inefficient by overwork.
By worry, despondency, social affairs, robbing brain and body
of needed rest; excessive use of tobacco, indulgence in strong alco
holic drink—excesses of every kind that burn up the vital powers
so necessary in these trying times to make both men and women
lit to be of help to themselves and others.
It is time to be temperate in all things. The man or woman
with impaired nerves caused by impoverished blood lacks vigor,
the ambition, the endurance and the keen mind of those who avoid
Tiniidness, despondency, fear, trembling bands, want of con&dencc and
even cowardliness, are due iu ( a large measure to abused nerves.
People with plenty of red blood corpuarles and strong, healthy neryea hava
no desire to shirk work and lean on othera for guidance and aupport.
There is hardly a nerve-shattered man or woman (unless of an organic
disease) in America today who cannot become alert and clear in mind; vigorous
aud energetic in body in a very few weeks aud at trifling cost.
To bccomo strong and ambitious, to feel that work ia not drudgery; to
bare ateadv nerves, abundance of red blond and power of endaranee; to be not
only a man hut as men now go, a superman, you muat take seven tablets of
liio-feren every day for seven days—and take them faithfully.
Take two after racli meal and one at bedtime and after seven days take
one only after meal until the supply is exhausted.
Then if you feel that any claim made In this special notice is untrue—if
your nerves are not twice as steady as before; if you do not feel ambitious,
more vigorous and keen-minded, the pharmacist who dispensed the tablets to
you will gladly hand you back just what you paid for them.
Bio-feren is without doubt the grandest remedy for nervous, rundown,
weak, anaemic men and women ever offered direct through druggists and Is
not at all expensive. All druggists In this city and vicinity have a supply on
haud—sell many packages.

Alvarez was sentenced to death by
a court-martial hcreMonday. He was
captured here last Tuesday in the
i buttle in which General Aurelianu
| I banquet, minister of war in the
Huerta cabinet, was killed.
Many thousands of persons sur
rounded the barracks when the exc
i cution took place.
Alvarez had been sentenced to die
at an early hour, but on orders re
ceived from the Supreme Court the
execution was held up. The War
Department, however, ordered com
pliance with tiie sentence of tlie
| court-martial and the prisoner was
j brought out to face his executioners.
Two hours before the execution
the correspondent of the Associated
Press visited Alvarez in his ceil. He
was absolutely calm and evinced no
fear and declared bo was prepared
to die.
"1 consider the sentence of the
I military court illegal." said Alvarez,
i "as 1 ceased to be a soldier when
the federal arnty disbanded and I
left the country. It' 1 am shot it
will be illegal. If 1 were still a sol
dier the court's sentence would have
been just."

For Acid Stomach
Take Bi-nesia
Instant Relief or Money Back
If you suffer from dyspepsia, indi
gestion, pain after eating, gastritis,
heartburn or any stomach trouble due
to acidity or food fermentation—and
over ninety per cent, of stomach com
plaints are due to these causes—go to
your druggist and get 50 cents worth
of Hl-nesiii. The next time you eat or
have pain in the stomach take a tea
spoonful in a little hot water and
note how quickly all pain and dis
comfort ceases. Chemists say that it's
almost invariable success is due to
the fact that Hi-nesla instantly neu
tralizes the excess acid and stops fer
mentation. thus promoting healthy
natural digestion. Being absolutely
harmless as well as inexpensive, Ul
nesta should be kept on band in every
home where economy and good
health are sought.
lli-nesiu is obtainable in both pow
der and tablet form of Geo. A. Gorgas
and other leading druggists every
where. Each package contains a bind
ing guarantee of satisfaction or
money back and the druggist of
whom you buy it stands back of that
guarantee. .Stop dieting; eat what
you want, then take lli-nesin—the
wonderful remedy that costs nothing
if it fails.

Frenchman Says Boclic Is Not;
Held Down Hard
Paris. April 23.—"1 am afraid the
, j Peace Conference is going to let the
I Boches off too easily," said Pro
j fessor Eouis Dubois, deputy for the
i Department of the Seine, to the As
j sociated Press to-day. Professor
| Dubois lias made a special study
| of the economic situation in North
j ern France produced by the de
i structive ingenuity of the Germans,
j He has submitted to the Chamber j
| of Deputies a detailed report of his
] findings.
"Are the Germans to be spared"
I he asked. "With their industries un-
I impaired they will have seized the
! markets long before we are ready to j
| compete with them. If only Presi-
I dent Wilson would come and seo
i with his own eyes what utter ruin
and destruction they have brought
| upon our unhappy land.
"One has to sec tlie destruction :
; with ones own eyes." he went on. j
I "Much lias been cleaned up already,
j With devilish ingenuity the Germans I
made a specialty of destroying the
| essential tilings. They even had a
: machine specially devised to de
i stroy railway points. General Gas
! suoin, wso commands the northern
| section, told me that it will take
i two years before the railway system '
jis in proper working order again. j

"Transportation is interlocked
! with all the big difficulties we have ,
to cope with. There is the ques
tion of raw materials and the ques
tion of labor. If, by demobilization, i
we get labor we must transport the j
men to places where they are need
| ed. Then we must house and feed
j them. There is neither food nor
I housing accommodations. To pro

I make fuller use of the canals, but
I those canals served as lines of de-

j locks are destroyed.

I trict are flooded in places. One or

j eight months, but it will be live or
: six years before the mines are in
proper working condition again. !

Industrial Troubles
Asked if France was recovc-ing ;
any of the textile, metal manufac- j
taring or sugar refining machinery j
stolen by the Germans, he replied I
that it was difficult to transport it
and most of the French plants were !
not yet ready to receive it. "I know j
cases of Germans approaching the j
original owners of machinery N and i
offering to sell them back their own
property they had stolen from them,"
he said.
"Then there is the agricultural
question," he continued. "The arable
soil in these parts is only ten inches j
deep. Beneath it is a subsoil of bar- j
ren clialk. The good soil that grows i
wheat—where is it? The farmers |
will have to begin right from the |
beginning again, as the squatters did |
in America; that is, they will have |
to prepare the soil for cultivation. I
Labor and transportation again! Not '
in fifteen or twenty years will that j
soil produce anything in the way I
