6LASSES FOR THE EYES.
Dr. Seymour Denounces the Fact
That Eyes are Deteriorating;.
Tho question is often asked particu
larly by thoso who can recall tho cus
toms and experiences of twenty-flve
years ago, "Why do so many people
nowadays wear glasses?" The answer
Is easy. "Tho increaso In tho number
of spectacles worn is not to bo re
garded as an ovldonco of modern de
generation of tho eyes, but rather that
a long felt necessity luis been met."
For It should be remembered that
within the past Quarter of a century
much has been learned about tho value
of classes, and tho rango of their ap
plication and usefulness has been
enormously oxtonded. Of course the
eyes need more holp now than former
ly, as tho amount of work they are
required to do is much greater than at
any previous porlod in tho world's his
tory. The sewing machine and many
other inventions of its class save tho
labor of the hands only to add to that
required of the eyes.
New employments, now amusements
and new fashions are continually be
ing introduced to Increase the exac
tions lnid upon these sensitive and del
icate organs. The steady decrease of
illiteracy, together with tho general
cheapness of literature and a spread
of the taste for it, the enormous circu
lation of novel, magazine and news
paper, the ever Increasing use of arti
ficial illustrations, all combine to over
tax the eyes and to weaken or possibly
destroy the sight unless the required
aid and protection be supplied through
every means at our disposal. Thus it
happens that the one time luxury of
properly adapted glasses has come to
bo recognized and understood by very
many of the present generation as one
of the real necessities of their lives.
Notwithstanding all the extra strain
brought to boar upon the eye by ad
vanced civilization, some persons are
still adverse to taking any other view
of the matter than that the eyes of
our present generation surely show de
terioration. If this be true how could
we account for the great amount of
work accomplished by young men and
women of today, wholly through the
use of their eyes; or the ability of
children in our public schools to com
pete with tne requirements, necessi
tating close application to their books
to insure, their advancement?
It is all a fallacy and the sooner peo
ple learn to preserve and care for their
eyes the sooner we will lessen the
number of inmates in our institutions
for the blind.
The same is certainly true of the
use of glasses as It is true of the use

coln people who are treating with Dr.

is not the case. Ho treats by mail

because one lives at a distance it does
not follow that they cannot receive
the benefit of his skill. Write at an

York City. Dr. W. I. Seymour:
"Denr Sir: I have improved quite
a good deal since I've taken your medi
cine. My throat still bothers me a
great deal in the mornings, but it does
not make me so sick. The rest of tho
day it hardly troubles me at all, unless
I am out of doors. It seems to choke
me continually then, but otherwise I
feel ever so much better. Your medi
cine has certainly done me a great
deal of good in the short time I have
been taking it. Thanking you for tho
help you have already been to me, I
remain, Yours truly,
DR. W. I. SEYMOUR, 1219 K street,
Dear Dr. Seymour: The glasses
fitted by you have done wonders In re
lieving my headache, and I am Indeed

ment, and am pleased to recommend
