Poor eyesight of children is
not often noticed until the child
Is sent to school, when the defect
becomes more pronounced by
reason of close work. In this
condition study becomes a bur
den on account of eye strain and
headache and is a constant drain
upon the whole nervous system.

INTERESTING REPORT OF CLEBK
OF' COURTS DANIELS.
Is a Very Law-abiding County Of
tho 3440 Criminal Charges Pre
ferred 1127 Wore for Assault and
Battery in Cases So Trivial That
tho Grand Dury Ignored 1028 of
Them Other Court Matters.
Criminal charges 3440
Pleas of guilty 05
Clerk of the Courts T. P. Daniels has
compiled a report of tho work done
by tho criminal branch of the coutts
of this county from tho opening of the
October term In 3901 until the opening
of the same term this year.
Oiirlnjr that Derlod transcripts In
3,140 criminal cases were filed with tho
clerk of tho court. Of this number
2,749 were brought to the attention of
tho giand jury. In L'.lll cases tho bills
were Ignored, and In 638 true bills ic
sultetl. Altogether 1,063 persons were
tried on GDO bills. There were 77S ac
quittals, 364 convictions, 3G nol prosses
and 3 pleas of guilty. The accom
panying table gives Interesting statis
tics concerning the business of the five
terms of court hold during tho year:
Number of cases charging crlmo
Cases before grand juiy
Tine bills by giand luty

Number of pel son i tiled
Number of cases tried
Number of ucaulttnls
Number of conlctlotib
Number of nol prosbes
Picas of guilty cnteied
Amount of lecognlzanccs
That Lackawanna county Is com
posed of a class of people w ho are nat
urally quiet and law abiding Is shown
by an analysis of the class of crimes
that come before the court. "When the
mixed character of the population of
the county is considered the showing
is certainly most creditable.
While the total number of cases Is
seemingly largo a great percentage aio
of a character that ought never to get
beyond the ofllco of the alderman or
ju'-tlco of the peace, wheto tho war
rant was sworn out. It Is not always
the fault of these gentlemen that the
cases get into comt, tor the reason that Tho mombeis of the school sang sev
thoy have to hold tho accused to ball cral carols, and theio wore recitations

ture of most of these is attested by tho
fact that out of this large number there
were but thirty-six convictions. These

Of the higher grades of crime, tho
calendar for tho year was icmaikably
free. Altogether nine pet sons were ar

dicted by the grand jury. The tilal of
these cases showed that none of them

the seven men Indicted, 1ie wero ac

Theio wcie no orients for highway

The Moirlson Silk company has pui

There arc already seven silk mills

a superficial Knowledge of the mouaichle
