Our Optical Department still
goes along in the even tenor of its
way despite all opposition. Every
day we fit somebody cither with a
pair of Eyeglasses for 25c, and
once in a while wc get as high as
$2.00. We can't go higher be
cause that is the best pair of crys
tals you can buy and why pay
more? The reason is that wc do
not need any special two weeks'
study of the question because our
instrument, the EVEMETEli, is
so simjile that its test is absolute.
Doesn't matter if your eyes arc

issued at Cologno, but there is no
authontic rocord concerning thoso,
and no copy of either paper is now
known to bo in existence. In 1615
Die Frankfurter Oborpostainis Zoi
tuug was started at Frankfort, and

During tho present century the
growth of tho newspaper has boon
very marked and rapid. In 1814 tho
London Times commenced tho use
of tho steam printing-press, and a
revolution in newspaper history was
then brought about.
Tho first paper to bo issued on this
continent was tho Boston Nows
Lettor, which appeared April 24,
1704. A shoot known as Public
Occurrences, Foreign and Domestic,
was published in Boston in 1690, but
it cannot bo said that it was really
a nowspapor. It was not until 1725
that Now York succeeded in getting
a nowspapor published in tho city.
In that yoar October 16 tho Ga
zette was started, and five years later
tho Weekly Journal came out.
Tho oldest of all tho Now York
papers at tho present time is tho
Commercial Advortisor, which was
founded in 1797, and is therefore
close upon its one hundredth anni
versary. Tho liiVoinng i"ost is tho
next oldest, it having beon started
in 1801. Tho Journal of Commerce
dates from 1827. The Courier des
Etats Unis was started in 1828; tho
Sun in 1833; tho Staats-Zoitung in
1834; Herald, 183.",; Tribune, 1841;
Times, 1851. Tho Evoning Express,
now the Mail and Express, was
started in 1816; tho World in 1860.
Tho youngest of the Now York
dailies is the evening edition of tho
Staats-Zoitung, which has recently
mado its appearance. The oldest of
all tho American nowspapers now
which has beon regularly issued
Tho total number of periodicals
now published in tho United States
and Canada is 19,573. Of thoso
1856 aro dailios, 13,983 weeklies, and
2886 monthlies. Tweuty-ono differ
ent languages other than English
aro represented by thoso papors.
Thoir names and tho numbor of
papors of each aro as follows: Ara

Cherokee, 1; Chinese, 2; Finnish, 3;

Franco is extremely well supplied
with nowspapers. Thoro aro 79 dai
lios in Pans alone, which aro almost
without exception political in char
actor. Many of them enjoy a very
largo circulation. Lo Petit Journal,
tho well-known fivo-coutimo papor,
boasts (with truth) of a larger circu
lation than any other paper in tho
world. Its daily issuo is over one
million copies. It consists of but
four pages, one of which is given
over to standing advortisomonts. All
its writors aro men of acknowledged
ability, its dramatic editor particu
larly boingso woll known and highly
esteemed that tho circulation of tho
papor increases twonty-fivo thousand
on tho days when his articles ap
pear. Tho nowspapers of Russia, though
soyoroly handicappod with consor
ship, are numerous. Thoro is also a
largo number of illustrated papers,
most of thorn being vory artistic and
commanding a largo circulation
throughout tho country. Potor tho
Groat took a personal part in tho
establishment of tho first Russian
newspaper, which was published in
1703. The languages employed by
tho Russian press compriso Russiau,
Gorman, French, Finnish, Arme

Tho first nowspapor published in
Australasia was tho Siduoy Gazette
and Now South Wales Advortisor,
tho first numbor of which was issued
March 5, 1803, and consisted of four
pages foolscap sizo, with tho letlor
pross arranged in throo narrow col
umns on each pago. At that tiino
communication with England was
slow and uncertain, and tho continu
ation of tho journal was frequently
throatonod by tho want of ink aim
pnpor. In 1824 tho first number of
a weekly journal, tho Australian,
was issued, and continued until 1828.
Among tho other early papors in
Australia was tho Sidney Herald,
first published April 18, 1831, and
which, in a fow J'oors, became tho
Sidney Morning Horald. Tho sottlo
mont of Tasmania dates from Janu
ary, 1801. Tho earliest nowspapor
published thoro (1810) was tho Dor
wont Star and Van Diotnan's Land
Intelligencer. On tho sottlomont of
Western Australia in 1830 ono of tho
first acts of tho colonists was to
establish a manuscript nowspapor,
tho Freomantlo Journal, consisting
of a singlo manuscript foolscap shoot,
issued weekly to subscribers only,
tho rates being throo shillings a
copy, or ton guineas por annum. In
Now Zealand tho numbor of news
papers in proportion to tho popula
tion is exceptionally largo, and it
has mora daily papors than any of
tho other Australian colonies.
