Miss Georgia Anderson spent

Misses Vergie and Bertie Cain,
after spending a few weeks here
with relatives and friends, have
returned to their home at Gard
ner. In the past week the sunshine
from Alton Home's face has en
tirely disappeared, and you can
hear his pitiful voice murmuring
"Life wears a different face to me
since I los,t my Vergie!"
Some men and women, too, are
always trying to "get even." If
you belong to this class, drop out
of it. It is a profitless business
and hurts you more than it does
the other man, because it dwarfs'
both your soul and yoir intelli
gence. Dr. Johnson says spite is
"among the most expensive luxu
ries of life."

He invites every man, woman and child who suffers with Granulated
Eyelids, Sore Eyes, Watering, Itching, Burning, Smarting, gumming
or any kind of Eye trouble, to call on him and he will Examine the
Eyes with the Latest Optical Instruments, and will give one sample
bottle of his WONDERFUL EYE REMEDY to every sufferer
ABSOLUTELY FREE. He also has over 3,000 pair of the VERY
FINEST and BEST SPECTACLES on hand. It does not matter
how weak, near-sighted, or far-sighted your eyes are, he surely can
and will suit you so as to enable you to see good and bright, and give
satisfaction and delight, and at a very reasonable price for first-class
work. Remember the eyesight ispriceles8, and the fitting of Lenses
depends upon the skill of the Eye Specialist, the quality of the Len
ses and the adjustment of the frames to the face. Eye strain pro
duces more Headache than all other causes combined, but when the
eyes are properly fitted it is a sure cure for such headaches. There
is no other permanent remedy for it. School children are often ren
dered dull and backward, not from lack of natural intelligence, but
because they have bad eyes, which make a close application to study
so painful as to be intolerable. Parents and school teachers should
not neglect this important matter, as it might make a bright, intelli-,
gent child of an otherwise stupid ono. Remember this Great Eye
Remedy has cured thousands of people in this State, after paying out
hundreds of dollars to doctors for other eye remedies, without gain
ing any benefit whatever. A free sample will convince you that you
can be cured. Consultation and Examination Free to All. He can
be seen every day at the BELL HOUSE from Tuesday, January 26,
until Tuesday, February 2.
