Yet, as a matter of fact, tlio waiting rooiim of city and country oculists alike, aro crowded, day after day und week after week, by pcoplo who havo boon criminally negligent of their vIhIoii. Reading too lino print, un loaded and often on gloHsy paper, is responsible for much of tho mischief. Poor Illumination Ih another do Htructlvo agency. Over-ludulgenco lu tobacco or alcohol and reading too booh after roeovury from an ucuto Illness, play also a part In the throw ing awuy of Bight. One of tlio leant oxcusublo of agencies Ih tho uno of proprietary nostrums, both made and sold by men who know llttlo or noth ing about the eye, and, In addition, havo never examined tho oyes of the Individual patient.

Recent In vestigations of the t'nlted States De partment of Agriculture havo shown, for example, that tho deterioration of the western larch In tlio more open and exposed stands Is duo to mistletoe. Although not so valuable as yellow pine and Douglas II r, the lurch when free from mistletoe pro duces largo saw timber. Trees at tacked In early llfo hy tho larch mls tlotoo, however, seldom produce a good grade of merchantable timber, and all Infected trees show poor health and reduced diameter or height. In a professional paper of tlio United StatOH Department of Agri culture, Bulletin No. 317, It Ih rec ommended that In making timber sales, all lurches affected with iiiIh tletoo bo cut, whother tho trees are merchantable or not. Tho effect of thinning Is to promote tho develop ment of tho parasito in tlio crown. It Ih desirable, therefore, to cut all In fected trees, so far us this Is prac tlcablo In lumbering operations.

CONCERNING WEIGHTS AND MEASURES Mr. Kditor: A llttlo spaeo in tho Mist to explain tho working of the law as to weights and measures Tim law heliiK a new one, I thought the people might wunt to know some of the workings' of it. Tho law only took effect tho 22iul of last May, ho it Iiiih only been in force for a little over seven months. This district in cludes nine counties right alone the Columbia river, called the northern illntrlct. During tho past seven months I have visiteil all the places of business at leiiHt once, and part of them twice, and have found tho fol lowing tested out up to tho llrst of tho year: 279 scales, of which I found 227 out of halunco, 216 condemned for repairs and had to condemn perma nently 198 and prohibit tlio further use of them. Then I have covered tho faces of lfi computing charts for not computing on every ounco us they should. As to weights, I tested 1 H 57 and condemned and destroyed 2", 7 of them that worn light or had weights not belonging to them, us they did not give tho proper weights. Then I tested yard measures to the number of Sir,, und found 12 that had to he adjusted most of them were short. Then as to liquid measure, I have tested out 222 accurate und found 4:i that had to bo condemned an being short from being bent or denied. Then iih to wood, I have a great many complaints. I have found 10 different cases of wood that was of short measurement. Then an to coal, there is not so much trouble uh the dealers aro moro careful, for If they short weight you, It Is a clear case of dishonesty. Then iih to hay and mill feed, I have a good deal of trouble, for buy Is generally shipped in und is baled in lOaslern Oregon and Washington, and when lulled It Is weighed at the time, of baling. Sumo weigh with steelyards and tho weight Is marked on u slip of wood and slipped under one of the haling wires, then It Is either left in the field or stored in some open shed and thorn It is left jmZF i-Y Ft- . T : . r"V, OKIUION, El'l! ENE, OREGON to dry and shrink all tho way from 10 to 4 0 pounds to the hale. Now I have always taken the stand that the purchaser was entitled to the actual weight of a commodity at tlio time of purchase. Then It is tlio same way witli mill feed when it Is rolled; it in steamed und dampened, and in that state It is weighed out and the weight marked on tlio sack, then stored awuy the samo ns hay, and left to dry out and shrink all tho way from live to 20 pounds to tlio sack, and In a purchase by the ton enough sacks are counted out, and thero is quite a shortage. Now tho law con templates tho giving of actual weight at tho time of purchase. I have a great many sacks of Hour not coming up to weight; say 4 7 or 4 8 pounds. Now that seems small, but to tho miller it is a lot. 1 found a great many of tho gaso line and coal oil pumps short. The pump will pump accurately if kept in proper shape, but many of thorn are handled very roughly, causing tlio valve rod to slip nnd get loose, which will caut'.o the How to bo short. As stated above, tho law Is u new one and the peoplo nro unacquainted with it. We havo been very lenient with them ns to its violation. Since the llrst of tho year, Fred G. lluclitol, deputy stnto sealer, who has charge of district sealers, Issued u letter to nil district sealers, giving them very strict Instructions as to tlio enforce ment of the law. Ho sayB that from now on ho expects a very close in spection of all weights and measures, and that ho Is going to hold each one to a strict enforcement of tlio law. Very truly yours, F. P.
