For a Full
That Can't be
Miss Emma Peterson, another young
Jady, was seen in Dr. Seymour's offlco,
and in talking of tho matter of hor
eyes to a friend, expressed herself as
"It has been very hard for mo to
consent to the wearing of glasses, and
only after being advised by my pro
fessor, Mr. Menzendorf, to take a sen
Bible view of it. could I bring myself
to this point My left eye was con
tinually watering, but through the
treatment of Dra. Seymour and Cox
and tho fitting of proper glasses, I
havo been very much relieved."
In justice to Miss Peterson, wo would
Bay, that this was not said for publica
tion, but we havo taken tho liberty of
publishing the statement, as sho has
many personal friends here who will
be pleased to learn of her Improved
In talking of the work dono by Dr.
Seymour, Miss Josle Morrlsey, No. 2119
P street, speaks in tho following
"One year ago last Aprlh I went from
Lincoln to Omaha to consult Dr. Sey
mour to havo my eyes treatod and
fitted with glasses. I had consulted
everj' eye specialist here in Lincoln,
but failed to receive relief. After be
ing treated so successfully by Dr. Sey
mour, it gives me pleasure to say at
the present time that I consider his
work simply wonderful. Tho glasses
havo practically cured my eyes. I can
now read without them, If necessary,
when before It was Impossible for me
to use my eyes any length of time
without glasses,. before receiving those
fitted by him. I really cannot say
enough in praise of his work."
Tho following veiy complimentary
statement comes from Mrs. S. A.
North, No. 827 H Btreet.
"Yes, DrB. Seymour and Cox are
treating me. Dr. Soymour has made
new glasses for me, and Dr. Cox. has
been treating my ears. I have now
been treating with them for two
weeks, and am perfectly happy over
tho wonderful Improvement that has
been mado In my hearing. Beforo I
could not hear ordinary conversation
In tho room at all, although when any
one stood closo to me I could hear
them. After my second treatment Dr.
Cox asked mo if I noticed any differ
ence, and I was perfectly amazed, as
I could hear every word ho Bald very
distinctly, although ho was not speak
ing In an unusual voice. I thought
last night when I went homo I would
watch myself and found that I could
hear tho clock ticking and also tho
conversation of those in tho room,
something most remarkable to me, as
my caao Is of twenty years' standing.
I might odd that I simply consulted
the doctors to ease my own conscience,
as I had heard so much of their skill,
but at the sarao time I had no faith
In the fact that they could help me.
I am extremely grateful for this mar
velous Improvement, and I only hopo
that my friends and acquaintances who
knew of my affliction wH embrace this
opportunity of consulting such suc
cessful specialists if troubled with
either defective sight or hearing."

"Death," said a publisher, "hns bcti

Tho sexton tolled tho bell.
"Ilootl did another bnllnd on tho sub

by his sweetheart nnd who then hungi
himself. Now, that Is rather tragic, to
it not? It hns n bizarre but none the!
less polgnnnt trnglc note. Guy s

Many readers who are Interested in
Dr. Seymour's wonderful success as an
eye specialist will be pleased to know
how he successfully conducts such a
largo business, giving personal atten

their numbers run Into thousands.
Dr. Seymour lived for many years
in Chicago beforo coming to Nebraska,
and oven though he has returned to
Chicago to live, he has In no wise
neglected his Nebraska patients, as he
has a permanent office and hospital In
Omaha, which is constantly In charge
of his assistant, one of the best quali

patlonts at that address.
Dr. Seymour can in no wise be
classed as a traveling specialist, u Mb
recular trips through the state l
braska requlro only a short period fall
and spring, and are "ver a well estab
lished route, paying regular visits to
the same patients year after year. In
fact, the doctor has not added a new
town to his list for over Ave years.
These regular trips enable hundreds of
people to visit him who could not af
ford the expense of going to Omaha
for that purpose.
Ho will be accompanied on his com
