If work tires your eyes, it is not likely
. that "not using them" after working hours
will do much good. , ,
The tired feeling is due to eye strain.
Properly fitted glasses will end the strain.
Nothing else will. Avoiding reading or other'
close work will not give the eyes the rest
If your eyes are tired, see Clinton's optom
etrist. His examination will determine the
best thing for your sight.

It is especially so in these war times, that there seems
to be plenty of things to be had, of a grade or qality Which
you do not care for, but the very thing you want seems al
ways -to be short or "just ordered" or "we have received
the invoices but they are not here yet."
So it is with Dodge Brothers cars, while the factory is
producing more than they ever did, no dealer can keep
Dodge cars in stock, for the simple reason that the people
want them and are willing to buy them winter or summer
at the very reasonable prices prevailing for this quality
product. An early order is your OJTLY protection.
