Two versatile women writers are among the recent interesting acquisi
tions to Omaha society. They are Mrs. W. N. Henslcv, wife of Major Hen
sley, now stationed at Fort' Omaha and Mrs. John Ross Clemens, whose
husband is dean of the medical college of Creighton university.
Mrs. Hensley's writings are most frequently found under her maiden
name of Matic Manard. Her most recent article, dealing with the Filipino
situation, appeared in the November 3 issue of Collier's. The Hensleys spent
more than five years in the Philippine Islands where Mrs. Hensley, a former
Kansas City girl, was a special writer for three Spanish newspapers in Ma
nila. She was active in Red Cross work and took part in musical and dance
entertainments for the benefit of the cause.
Omaha is especially interested in the Henslcys for the major is. a
former Omahan, having received his appointment to West Point while with
the Union Pacific herd His family lives in 'Columbus.
Mrs. Clemens' work is largely magazine writing. She has the honor of
being one of the three American wonen members of the Society V)f Woman
Journalists of London, of which Mrs. Humphrey Ward is president.
Mrs. Clemens seems to be following the family tradition. She is a
cousin by marriage of .the famous Mark Twain, who was a cousin of Dr.
Jewish Old People's Home.

that applications for the Jewish Old
People's Home will be received be

Philadelphia. Pa. Do jon wear glasses?
Are jou a victim of eye strain or other eye
weaknesses? It c, you will be glad to
know that according to Dr. Lewis there is
real hope for you Many whose eyes were
tailing say they have had their eyes re
stored through the principle of this won
derful free prescription. One man says,
after trying it: "I was almost blind; could
not see to read at all. Now I can read every,
thing without any 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 a miracle to me." A lady
who used it says: "The atmosphere seemed
hazy with or without glasses, but after using
this prescription for fifteen days everything
seems clear. I can even read fine print
without glasses." It is believed that thou
sands who wear glasses can now discard
them in a reasonable time and multitudes
more will be able to strengthen their eye
a as to be spared the trouble and expense
: - ' . '.. . ''
of ever getting glasses. Eye troubles of
many descriptions may he wonderfully
benefitted by following the simple rules.,
Here is the prescription: Go to any active
drug store and get a bottle of Bon-Opto tab
lets. Drop one Bon-Opto tablet in a fourth
of a glass of water and alldw to dissolve.
With this liquid batfie the eyes two to four
times daily. You should notice your eyes
clear up perceptibly right from the start
and inflammation will quickly disappear.
If your eyes are bothering you, even a little,
take steps to save them now before it (s
too late. Many hopelessly blind might have
been saved if they had cared for their
eyes in time.
