GIVE CONSIDERATION TO EYE
ll? <foe of the Most Word erf ul and
[ Delicate Organs of the Wonder
ful Human Body.
More people are wearing glosses to
day than ever before. But that ls no
reason, says the Journal of the Ameri
can Medical Association, for the infer
'ence that eyes are any more defective
'now than they were fifty years ago. It
means simply that the work of today
.is store exacting on the eyes than the
wotfk of the earlier time, and that
'P<"m>?r pr?? talcing edvard ^ r* *'-"
erased knowledge of the structure of
the eye and the means of making it
serviceable. It has been discovered
ho^' tve task cf tte persea . A.
.it?i is his eyes may be more easily
performed. Electricity has turned
night into day and made it possible
for' the eye ta work longer. Lenses
correct the defect's of the eye, and, by
lightening the burden, make the organ
equal to the opportunity.
The eyes of civilization are no more j
defective than those of people living;
in primitive conditions, and. those of
men are not inferior in structure to
those of animals. The chief differ
ence ls that civilized man has found
the means of remedying the defects
and is employing it, thus adding to his
own efficiency. But this is not wholly
true. There are still persons whose
pride in the excellence of their sight !
is refusing them the aid they need for
comfort and efficiency. There also
are persons who abuse their eyes by
guessing at the correction needed, in
stead of employing the accurate knowl
edge they may have. The eye is one
of the most wonderful and delicate
organs of the wonderful human body.
It is certainly entitled to as much
consideration as one gives his watch.
DIVINE WORSHIP IN MINES
Worker? Underground Are Afforded
Places in Which They May Per
form Religious Devotions.
In the Myndd Newydd coal mines,
in Wales, there s an "apartment" used
exclusively ,as a place of worship.
This underground chapel dates from a
period of more than fifty years ago,
since when it hes always been used
as a church, the miners assembling in
this strange room every morning to
perform their religious devotions.
The chapel is situated close to the
bottom of the shaft, so that the min
ers, on descending the pit, can attend
before proceeding to their various
stations. The "apartment" lacks or
namentation or adornment, the pillars
ard beams supporting tire roof being
of rough wood. A disused coal trolley,
turned on end, serves as a pulpit.
Ihe miners sit upon wooden benches
placed across thc chapel from side to
side, and the oldest worker of the
mine performs the duty of pastor.
In the sah mine at Wieliczka, Aus
tria, there is a chapel of St. Anthony,
a Byzantine excavation, supported by
columns, wtih altar, cruci.ix and life
sire statues nf saints, apparently in
black marble, but in reality made of

The Zoological Society Bulletin re
marks thal refusal of food is generally
the first symptom that an animal cr
bird if sick, j he ostrich is one of
the mosi provoking in this respect,
end, if Lil .ic measures be not adopt
er.., soon bore:::-.s so thin as to become
a prey to tome really dangerous ail
A fne Sou'.n African ostrich re
ceived from Arizona at the Now York
Zoological gardens in Bronx park last
summer refused h's breakfast on De
cember 23, 1914. He showed no othor :
symptoms cf illness. A week passed j
and ho began to lock thin. Keeper
George Snyder, at considerable person
al risk, began a system of forcible 1
feeding, ramming bolus after bolus of
food wrapped iu lettuce leaves down !
the throat of the unwilling bird.
This treatment was kept up for
more than six weeks, and the ostrich ;
became so accustomed to it that he
iceased to resist. On February 6, 1915, !
he first evinced a willingness to feed
himse.'f, and within a short time his
banger strike was over.
Old Sport of Falconry.
Paleen ry is an ancient sport. It ap-1
.pears to have been known in China \
4,000 years ago, and at an equally j
early date in the valleys of the Nile
and Euphrates. Tie references to it ;
in Aristotle, Pliny and Martial are ;
definite. It was probably introduced ,
into England from the. continent in
the ninth century and was followed
there down to the middle of the seven
teenth century with greater ardor
than any other sport, even than fox
hunting. Falcons were allotted to men
according to their rank: To the em
peror, the eagle and vulture; to kings, I
the gerfalcons; to earls, the pere
grines; to yeomen, the goshawks; to ,
priests, the sparrow hawks, and to ;
servants, the useless kestrels. j
The Optimist j
On the whole, poets do not seem to .
have too good a time or it. It is ,
rather rare for an editor to see eye \
to eye with them in regard to the
quality of their work.
Percival Fliptop had had his work \
"turned down" by five editors in suc
cession, and was now being told tho
cold and bitter truth by the six'h. Hi's
rage got the better of him.
"Some day." he burst out "you ed
itors will be fighting for my work."
"Never mind," chortled he of thc
hard heart "When that dav comes,
even if I lone. I'll b? just as happy!"

How Edward Can Draw.
Edward was showing Miss Brown
how well he could draw a cow. As he
u? cw, he glanced from tiinc to time, at
a cow grazing in a nearby yard.
"This is her nose," he said, draw
ing a curved line.
"Kore's her body," he explained, and
I after a look at his model he added an
! other curved line.
"Now here's; her tail," and he placed
I a curved line opposite the so-called ;
As he held the finished drawing up :
for inspection, an ein barr a&s ed smile '
