'Gothic," bat net good to keep tbe pigs oat. Since then
there have been spent years of time, volumes ef gas, and

sands of precioas dstlara in SSklag a thing Utat will mar
rather than improve tbe landscape. Had we lota and cards

Th Snectaele Len s In common uscterma double con
vex, have but one focus, and that being In the centre, ad
mits ot a perfect vision only throagh the eeatre. Nowaa
the eyes, in rallies from side to side, depart fromjlhH
point, it Is affected by tbe distortions Incident, and occa
sions in weak ejes fatigue and pain, asd In strong cy s
a more frequent cha-ge ot glass for those of higher powa .
than Is caused by the simple flattening of tha eye by axe ;
or, to use the language of many, they make the eye grow
older. Could tho glass be attached to the eye, so as to
move with it, or the head be made to tarn and accommo
date the sight, while the eyes remain fixed, the doubbs
convex lens would not be so objectionable. Bnt as neither
ot thse plans could be very well accompli ihed, an easier
method to remedy this Important defect in all hltheito
constructed helps to the defective human vision is desira
ble. This end is obtained In these glasses which, having
aot only central focus, bnt. for all practical purposes, one
throughout, the objection above named Ip obviated, as they
wlH enable the weaver to perceive objects at every angles
of vision, with all the correctness ot the natural healthy
sight. Janll-dawStr
