AIN'T NATURE WONDERFUL!
Glasses and golf balls take the
cake for being the hardest articles to
keep in sight. Getting misplaced,
glasses have the bottle opener (ex
cuse us, we mean house slippers)
beat to a frazzle.
Glasses are made so we can see
better. Some people see too much
without wearing ' glasses. Some
glasses are made to .magnify things
and some to make things look
smaller. .Butchers can do both of
those stunts without wearing glass

their eyes to diminish and when the
meat is on the scale their eyes mag
nify and see double.

10-cent store glasses. He has per

them. If your eyesight weakens and
you don't like the eyedea of wearing
glasses, ioin the police force.
A lot ofs people wear big horn
rimmed glasses and they look like
they are looking through a couple
of knot holes. We have a pair of
cheaters and wear them continually,
on the mantle.

parlor at home.
Give a boy a dollar and he will eat
it; give his sister one and she will
A brother and sister may have hair
of the same shade, but the boy's is
called red and4he girl's auburn.
When brothers fight, it is over the
larger share of pie;, -when sisters
