Treating tlie F.ftn.
It is surprising to what an extent the
eye may become affected before the grav
ity of the condition is realized," sa d the
reat Hirschterg, oculist, who is at
Thomas' drug store this week. "A case
came under my observation within a
short time," he continued, "where a man
had lost the sight of one eye entirely be
fore he realized it, and he indignantly
denied the infirmity when I told- him
about it. Put to the test, however, he
found that he had lost the use of one eye
absolutely, And we baye hundreds of
other cases where the vision is greatly im
paired without the knowledge of the one so
affected. The loss of the faculty of sight
is so gradual in these cases that in many
isstances it is not felt or discerned until
very often one eye is gone before it is
"Now, since I h;ive been here, 1
have treated a number cf very difficult
cases, in most instance a the sufferer not
having the faintest id 3a of bow gravely
he or she was afflicted. We. however,
propose to put ourselves within reach of
all these cases, and to that end will make
peyodical visits to Rock Island and other
cities in the circuit which we are estab
lishing, at least once in six months. I
shall be here this time the remainder of
the week, goimg thence to Davenport."
