Tho Drop of the Bullet in- Its Flight
Makes Them Necessary
The average person if asked to ex
plain why a ritle is sighted would prob- '
ably be unable to do so beyond some |
vague remark about taking correct aim.
Sights are necessary because a bullet
does not travel in a straight line, but,
unde? the influence of gravity and fric- '
tion, begins to drop almost as soon as
it leaves the muzzle. Thus the bullet!
of the British servico drops six inches 1
in the first 100 yards, but when it has j
gone 200 yards it will have dropped j
not twelve inches, but two feet. The ;
drop increases by leaps and bounds

Tired, weak, work-strained' eyes need
care and a chance to regain their health
and strtength. People carelessly neglect
eyes. SoXow know what to do for
them. Think now many home remedies'
you know for your other troubles and
how few for your eyes. Here is a pre
scription,—a simple, harmless home
remedy that has been used successfully
by thousands. The next time your eyes
trouble you try It: Get from H. C. Ken
nedy or any druggist a tube of grain
optona tablets, drop one tnblet Into two
ounces of water and use from 2 to 4
times a day to bathe the eyes. Optona
and water make a soothing, healing,
cooling lotion that brings quick relief
and makes (lie eyes and lids feel smooth
and comfortable. This prescription can
be used without fear and it gives sur
prising ro3ii 11 s iii many cases. It sharp
ens th.' vision. Invigorates, strengthens
and tones up the eyes. Many reports
show that some who use it have laid
aside glasses they have K worn for a long

Mechanicsburg Tabernacle Visited by
Delegations From Neighboring
Towns Last Night"
Meclinniosiburg, Feb. 4.—The taber
nacle service begun last evening as
usual with a service of\song. Visiting
delegations from Elierly's Mi>Ms and
Middlesex were present. Tlw> choir
sang "Why Not Now," for tme Eber
ly.'s Mills people, and "All, Hail Inf
manuel" for Middlesex. After a sea
son of song, the Rev. Ge >rge M. Fulton
let in prayer- The Scripture lesion, the
latter part of the tenth chapter of
Mark, was read by the Rev. L. M.
Dice. Then Miss Cree sung a solo, with
Eva-ngeiist Miller's sermon was on
the subject of excuses. The text, which
was from Psalm XXXIX., verse 7,
"And Now, Ijord, What Wait 1 For?
My Hope is in Thee.'' Mr. Miller said:
"Every Christian has had some trouble
to be one. It is easy to be bad, but not
'easy to be good. All great leaders in
j every department of life have fought
great batties. All achievements are
hard. Blind Bartimeus had one oppor
tunity to find Jesus and have his eyes
opened. Every one of us has hail at
least one opportunity to have Jesus
open our spiritual eyes. The preacher
now compared the person in spiritual
blindness with Bartimeus. First, the
sinner must realize that he is blind,
and he must believe that Jesus can
open his eyes. The blind man's belief
led to his receiving his sight. The sin
ner's faith will save him, also. God's
promises are sure. When you accept
his promises von are saved. 'Time to
consider' is one of the excuses, 'Fear
of acting under excitement,' 'Not
quite ready,' 'Belief in predestination,'
'Too low down to be saved,' 'Don't un
derstand how walking forward in a
meeting can bring salvation,' 'Afraid
of not holding out,' 'Don't feel like be
coming a Christian,' are the most gen
erally offered excuses."
Mr. Miller answered each excuse with
very convincing arguments and illustra
, tions. lie left no shred of excuse for,
! the unsaved.
I The building was well filled, and the
I hearers listened with interest. At the
conclusion of the service, during tho
j hinging of invitation hymns, thirty-sov
jen accepted salvation." Among 'them
j wero young and old, in some instances
| parents with sons and daughters.
■ This evening, about 400 members of |
I the Cvtough choir are expected. The j
1 regular choir will occupy seats in the
rear of the tabernacle, thus vacating
the choir loft for the visiting choir.

Station, states that the simple mixture
of buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc.,
as Adler-i-ka, is causing great
surprise because just ONE SPOONFUL
relieves constipation, sour or gassy
stomach almost IMMEDIATELY. It is
so thorough a bowel cleanser that it is
used successfully in appendicitis. Ad
ler-i-Ua acts on BOTH lower and upper j
bowel and the INSTANT effect is as- j

fectly safe to use.—Adv.
Don't Rely on Medicine; Don't Go on
Freak Diet; Co.nmon Sense and
an Antacid Usually All That
Are Needed
"If you have dyspepsia, incngestion,
stun* stomach, belching, distress after
eating, heartburn or any other stomach
trouble due to hyperacidity (the usual
cause of stomach troubles), you should
take no medicine to act upon tho stom
ach itself. That is positively not tin*
way to cure the trouble. .• .train, you
should ri*ot half starve yourself by v,n
iny: without the luitritious food that
you need to rebuild waste tissues. Some
foods are not' «;ood foe people even
when in perfect health—very rich,
swtet, highly seasoned dishes. Avoid
these, but eat fairly substantial meals
of phnn foods. Eat slowly. Kven if
you drink nothing but water, you
should not drink with meals. Drink
before and after eating. Do not take
pepsin or other artificial digestants, if
you follow the foregoing simple in
structions it is probable that you will
not need any medicine at all except, if
you want to call it medicine, a little
antacid after meals. The best antacid
is ordinary bism uteri magnesia, which
be purchased at any drug store.
I his is not to act upon the stomach
out on the contents of the stomach,
i he antacid, a£ you can learn by con
suiting your dictionary or encyclope
(lia, is merely to neutralize or counter*
act the excess acid so tlie stomach can
digest the food normally. Take a tea
spoonful of bisurated magnesia in a lit
tle cold or hot water after each meal.
You should get immediate relief, even
ir your case is severe. Careful, mod
erate eating and the use of bisurated
magnesia shohld put your stomach iu
normal condition in a short time; if you
have not allowed dyspepsia to advance
to the extreme stage of developing
stomach ulcers.—Adv.

Its Real Origin Dates to Napoleon's
Italian Campaign of 1850
The Red Cross owes, its real origin to
the great and terrible campaign of
1859, when Napoleon made it his boast
that he would free Italy "from the
Alps to the Adriatic." At the great /
battle of Magenta 10.000 Austrian*
and some 5,000 French soldiers were
left dead and dying on the fields.
A Swiss gentleman, named M. Henri
Dun ant, made a pilgrimage to that
battlefield and was an involuntary
eyewitness of the awful carnage of the
battle of Solferino, a battle which last
ed some sixteen hours and left some
30,000 dead and wounded, llonri Du
nant realized that the medical service
of what was probably the greatest
army in the world was absolutely in
adequate to cope with the casualties.
and ho was at once compelled to takd*
| dome action to rectify the matter.
The result was that he wrote a
small book for private circulation, en-
I titled "I'll Souvenir de Solferino," and
this, with his private appeal, resulte!
j in Napoieon 111. commanding Dunant
; to his presence, where, with the groat
: Mar.-ohai MaeMaihon, they seriously
I talked matters over.
The result of this was a conference
j of the powers, called together by the
| Swiss federal government, ✓at which
i Henri Dunant placed his proposals,
j Out of this Geneva conference of ISR4
' resulted the Geneva convention, under
i which nil metiical supplies and person
' nel in war time are protected.
