to adjust suitublo glasses, I found no re
lict uutil 1 met I rot. toward, of this city,
who. alter troatimr niv eve, adjusted
suitable glasses for loth reading anil sco-
lng at a distance, and 1 can now read with
comfort and case any kind of print, and
can sco distant objects plainly. 1 heartily
recommend him to any who are ulllicted

Joiinntowx, To., Juno 8. Affairs at

pilo seemed to havo resolved themselves
into a stato of almost hopelessness. It Is
amazing the routine into which everything
has fallen in this particular place. Kvery
morning at 7 o'clock a scoro of lilliputs
como mechanically from huts and tents,
or tho bate hillsides nnd wearily and
weakly go to work clearing away this
mass, and they now think it will actually
bo mouths before tho debris is cleared
away and tho last body found. 1'ortu
uatvly tho wind is blowing sway from us,
or wo would hsve olfactory evidence
thst what is not found Is far worso than
what has beia exnoicd. Then it
may bo coot business and good
policy to havo Iheeo few workers fool
around the clk'J of the wreckage for five or
ten minutes adjusting dynsmite blast,
then hastily scramble away and consuino
as much more lime before a tremendous
roar announce! Ihe ugly work is done, but
the ondookers doubt It, Sometimes when
an extra largo shot is used tho water, bits
of wood and. iron and other shapes more
fearfully suggestive fly directly upward in
a solid column st least 300 feet high, only
to fall back again into almost the sumo
