SUSSES FOR THE EYES.
Dr. 'Seymour Denounces the Fact
That Eyes are Deter
iorating. The question Is ofton asked particu
larly by thoso who can recall the cus
toms and experiences of twonty-fivo
years r.go, "Why do so many people
nowadays wear glasses?" The answer
Is easy. "The increase in the number
of spectacles worn is not to bo re
garded as an evidence of modern do
generation of tho oyes, "but rather that
a long felt necessity has been met"
For it should be remembered that
within the past quarter of a century
much has been learned about tho value
of glasses, and tho range of their ap
plication and usefulness has been
enormously extended. Of course tho
oyes need moro help now than former
ly, as tho amount of work they arc
required to do is much greater than at
any previous period in tho world's his
tory. Tho sowing machine and many
other inventions of its class 3ave the
labor of the hands only to add to that
required of the eyes.
New employments, now amusemonts
and new fashions are continually be
ing introduced to increase the exac
tions laid upon these sensitive and del
icate organs. The steady decrease of
illiteracy, together with tho general
cheapness of literature and a spread
of tho taste for it, the enormous clrcu
i nt ion of novel, magazine and news
paper, tho 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 he supplied through
every means at our disposal. Thus it
happens that the one time luxurv of
properly adapted glasses has come to
be recognized and understood by very
many of the present generation as one
of tho real necessities of their lives.
Notwithstanding all the extra strain
brought to bear upon the eye b3' ad
vanced civilization, some persons are
still adverse to taking anv other -view
of the matter than that the eyes of
our present generation surely snow de
terioration. If this "be true how could
we account for the great amount of
work accomplished by young men nnd
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 tho blind.
The Fame is certainly true of the
use of glasses as it is true of the use

they may not bo required to restore

amount of energy nnd eye strain is
saved by their use. Look well to your

"Depr Sir: T have improved quite
a good deal since I've taken your medi
cine. My throat still bothers me a
great deal in the mornings, hut it does
not mako me so sick. The rest of the
day it hardly troubles me at all, unless
I am cut 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 the
help you have already been to me. I
remain, Yours truly,
DR. W. I. SEYMOUR, 1219 K street,
