guard of men for 48 hours, to
send telegrams, but failed to get
an answer. An effort was made
to learn how much money be had.
but Carey refused to be bluffed.
Both he and White were finally
placed Jn a jail. A newspaper man
kept following him around, caus
ing a little worry. He watched
the men working in a chain gang
and was. informed, that he would
probably join them. He had been

tickets' and handcuffs confiscated, j

river and looked across to the
other side. It did not look so very
far away but to me it was a long
way at that.J They finally got
tired of me after four days and
permitted me to take White across
to El Paso. , No,' sir, I did not put
the handcuffs on White this time,
but waited until after I had step

according to Carey, was in Jail,

activities. Blake was serving time

Evidence of the strain he had
been under were shown in Carey's

a large, well-formed man and pos

SHOULD HAVE A COMPETENT EXAMINATION OF THEIR EYES BY A VISION SPECIALIST
MOST DEFECTS of vision in children are
discovered by chance and you positively
should not! take a chance with the eyes of
your child. Faulty vision does retard a young
ster s progress in his studies and, worse yet,
it may cause permanent injury if not properly
cared for. Do not let a foolish prejudice keep
you from bringing your children fin for an
examination. Please read our policy.
Wc repeatedly hear people say they are afraid to have their eyes or
the eyes of their children examined for fear glasses I will be given
when not absolutely; necessary. For your protection against such
a procedure we havjeal ways used the following policy: If upon
the completing of an examination of the eyes glasses are not required
or glasses now! being f worn do not need changing, we will immedi
ately inform you of this and a moderate charge will be made for our
service, j This positively protects you and permits us to make a com
petent examination. f
