spending tho winter In a little cottage
with her father-in-law In Iebanon, Neb.
This most Interesting personage wel

graciously consented to talk about her
brother and tho romance and tragedy of
her marriage.
Tho homo Is a neat cottage, typical of
the smalltown residence, but Inside there
was Immediate evidence of daintiness and
distinction In the quantity and delicate
beauty ot the covers and draperies to bo
seen.
The pretty little woman who greeted
her visitors In so charming a way Is ot
the pure Spanish type-melting dark
eyes, complexion of old ivory, white teeth,
a flashing smile, soft low voice and
rrotty and expressive gestures, which
made up for the broken English and
added to her charm.
She was born at Bojocangon, which Is
"three days' Journey" from Santa Bar
bara, where her father, brother of Gen
eral Villa, was postmaster for twenty
four years, going blind In tho service.
After this affliction the office was con
ducted by an elder daughter. The family
was a respected one. There were two
sons and three daughters.
Pancho, or Francisco, Villa Is the
owner of valuable mines and a man ot
affairs. He was a warm personal friend
of President Francisco Madero and a
stanch supporter of tho Madero adminis
tration. When Madero gave up his life,
Pancho Villa set out to avenge his death.
At tho samo tlmo ho believes that ho Is
fighting in the Interests ot the whole
peoplo ot Mexico, and for the good ot his
country.

Frank Wiggins
to engineering and his work led htm down
Into Mexico, and In Mexico Frank Wig
gins, American, met and wedded Ursula
Villa, native of Moxtco. And the Impetu
ous wooing, typical of the southland and
the Spanish people, was one ot romance
and deeds of daring.
Santa Barbara was In gala attire and
the quaint old city was full ot hearts
filled with anticipation, for the annual
occasion ot most Intense interest and
Lope was at hand. Some ono would be
come a hero who had not been one be
fore. Everybody would go and everybody
would applaud tho hero who showed the
greatest bravery and tho flower girls, the
prettiest In tho city and the- countryside,
would decorato the hero and he would
bo the great man.
One of the prettiest of the flower girls
was Ursula Villa, and ono of the con
testants for high honor In tho bull fight
In tho year 190$ was Frank Wiggins,
from tho middle west ot tho United
States of American. In tho contest which
took place that day before the great audi-

encc tho bravest of the brave fighters, Mexican widow, was Frank Wiggins,
according to the version of the little It was sho who picked him as a favor
ite for the bestowal of the floral honor,
and the result of this acquaintance was
a marriage inside the month.
They were happy for two years, when
the train on the Mexican railroad of
which Frank Wiggins was locomotive en
gineer ran away on the mountain gTade,
and on a high trestle toppled a hundred
fot Infn tliA ennvnn foAlnnr Tf rnflltiA
three days to remove tho wreckage df
the plled-up cars and at the bottom was
the mangled body of Frank Wiggins.
Two years ago, a year after the tragic
death ot Frank Wiggins, Van B. Wlg"
gins, his father, wrote to Mexico and
found out where the young widow was
and sent money to her to come north,
which sho Immediately did.
Sho could speak no English and could
understand little that was said to her In
that language, so, thinking to hurry the
education along she went to school In
the public schools near Lylo, Kan., and
In the second grade began her study of
English. For two years she attended
school In this district and received a
number ot perfect attendance cards as
well as a high grade for deportment and
advancement.
In September of the last year, Ursula
Wiggins mode a trip to the border at El
Paso, Tex., In hopes that she might see
her brother, Pancho Villa, but It was a
disappointment. She was not permitted
to cross Into Mexico and Pancho Villa
was not allowed to como over Into tho
United States to meet his sister.
A sister-in-law, widow of Uie other of
the Villa brothers, came across the bordor
into El Paso and through her news of
tho progress being made and tho remark
able victories being won by General Villa
was received.
The father-in-law plans, when peace Is
restored, to go down Into Mexico with
tho Uttlo daughter-in-law and buy a nice
homo there for her, where she can bo
with her own people again, but for the
present they aro spending tho tlmo In a
little Nebraska town and enjoying it all.
Ursula, raised a Catholic, at present
attends tho Protestant church of their
community and Is beloved by all who
come in contact wtlh her. She may be
the Bister of a "desporato diplomat," but
she must bo sister to a man who Is a
patriot diplomat, too one who loves and
hates In tho true Spanish way, and ex
presses It in action.

Rupture Appliance
.'.J1 s0,tely the only Appllaneo
of the kind on tho market today, ami
in It are embodied the principles that
inventors have sought after for yeara.
2. The Appliance for retaining the
rupture cannot be thrown out of posi
tion. 3. Being an air cushion of soft rub
ber It clings closely to the body, yet
never blisters or causes irritation.
i. TJnllkp the ordinary no-called pads,
used in other trusses, it la not cumber
some or ungainly. ,
6. It is small eoft and pliable, and
positively cannot be detected through
the clothing.
6. The soft, pliable bonds holding the
Appliance do not give one the unplea-v
ant sensation of wearing a harness.
7. There is nothing about It to get
foul, and when It becomes soiled it can
be washed without injuring it in tha
least.
8. There are no metal springs in tho
Appliance to torture one by cutting and
, bruising the flesh.
9. All of tho material of which the
Appliances are made is of the very best
that money can buy, making it a dur
able and safe Appliance to wear.
10 My reputation for honesty and fair
dealing Is so thoroughly established bv
an experience of over thirty years of
dealing1 with the public, and my price j
are so reasonable, my terms so fair, that
