Chewing (Jtim Hurts the Eyes.
" f the girls only knew that their eyes
ire being ruined by chewing gum, they
would shrink ffom if as they would from
a viper" said a host nut street Optican
vestirday. "We all know to. what an
extent this chewing gum is carried on.
md what a nasty habit it is. I would
dvise all girls to stop it at once. f
they have a big wad in their mouth
while reading this interview let them
throw it out and 'swear oif as Hie drink
ers say, fur in one respect these dainty
ifiris are like drunkards. f they are
chronic gum-chewers they are heir to the
inlirniitics that alllict the chronic whis
key drinkers. T have three girls who
were ndicted to the habit, but 1 broke
them from it after a great deal of per
suasion and some trifling punishment
Die oldest girl has evidences of the hab
it though, and will carry them to her
"How are the eyes affected?"
"Well, the must les of the jaw-connect
wi(h the spine, and from the spine
there are I'ttle fibrous tissues running in
ill directions. A number of these ex
tend to the eyes and are tailed the optic
nerves. Now, if you will watch u per
son eating, you will notice a palpitation
if the temples when the lower jaw
moves up and down in the process of
mastication. This is caused by the
working of the optic nervs, which keep
the inner part of the eyes in motion, and
exercise the nerves as much as is neces
sary to keep tliem in a Ilea I thy condi
tion. The nerves are more tender and
icnsativetoa degree than one would
imagine. Wlien they are overworked
tliey liecome shrunken and enfeeuled,
and then the process of deterioml.on in
tho eyesight begins. Of course, the
shrinking of the nerve draws lack . the.
;y into the socket, and as it is connect
ed hy slender threads of tissue to the
pup. I ol the eye, this also becomes nl
ietted. The tonsequente is that the
c iiecoiues weak and looses its color,
I becomes an unnatural looking ;gni. ,

These are all symptoms exhibited hy a

See to it that the children thoroughly
warm their feet bhfore going to school,
and on return'ng home. They are sel
dom disposed to do it themselves. Many
a serious cold, or other inflamitory at
tack, might be prevented by attention to
Teach the children, when out of doors,
to keep their mouths closed, and trtathe
through their nostrils. This prevents
the air the temperature of which may
N zero from striking directly on the
tonsils and the larnyx. As the nasal
passages are kept constantly warmed by
the breath from the heated lungs, the
inbreathed air is warmed as it passes
circu'tously through theru.
Cliildcn who are liable to inflimmation
and swell'ng of the tonsils, or to troubles
of the ear. should wear hoods that come
well down on the forehead and well down
on the neck, Hats are dangerous for
such children, and so are bonnets, un
less care is taken to tiring them well
down over the sides of the head.
"u our fit es nnd large towns especi
ally, children are inclined to sit together
on the stone door steps, which are often
ice-cold. This practice needs to be
gunrded against. Every thoughtful
mother will readily see how dangerous
it is for her g rls.
On returning from a cold walk or r'de,
throw oil' all but the home clothing at
once. The outer clothing Is nearly nt
the temperature of the outside atmos
phere, and, if kept on, must absorb
much hi at, which might otherwise come
to the wenrir immed ately.
n dressing nnd undressing in a cold
room move about as little as possible
when the Kl'ppers are otf. The carpet
just under the feet is warmed bv ab-sti-iw

For ' women in the kitchen slippers
