victim of eye-strain or other eye
weaknessee? If so, you will be glad
to know that there is real hope for
you. Many whose eyes were failing,
say they have had their eyes restored
through the principle of this wonder
ful free prescription. One man says,
after trying it: "J was almost blind;
could not see to read at all. Now I
can read everything- without any
glasses and my eyes do not water any
more. At night they would pain
dreadfully; now they feel fine all the
time. It was like a miracle to me."
A lady who used it says. "The at
mosphere seemed hazy with or with
out glasses, but after using this pre
scription for fifteen days- everything
seems clear. I can even read fine
print without glasses." It is believed
that thousands who wear glasses can
now discard them in a reasonable
time and multitudes more will be able
to strengthen their eyes so as to be
spared the trouble and expense of
ever getting glasses. Eye troubles of

rules. Here is the prescription: Go
to .Lee and Osgood or any active drug
store and get a bottle of Optona. Fill
a two ounce bottle with warm water,
drop in one Optona tablet and allow
to dissolve. With this liquid, bathe
the eyes two to four times daily. You
should notice your eyes clear up per

Supervisor Wielt Reports on Local
The report of Supervisor H. Wielt,
Jr., of Springfield, Mass., was read by
Secretary Peale, as Mr. Wielt was un
able to attend the meeting.
The supervisors report, which was
approved and accepted, follows:
Gentlemen: In submitting my re
"port as supervisor of the city play
grounds I am pleased to report a sue
cessful season. More than 16.000 ehil
dren (taking the attendance morning
and afternoon) took advantage of the
lacllities for physical activity and rec
reation. These figures I believe sur
pass those of previous years. This can
be accounted for by reason of many
oiaer ooys ana gins Deing mterestea
in our games and teams, and to no
small degree a larger appreciation on
the part of the community in general
for the playground work.
- Unusual interest was manifested in
the sewing and embroidery, which
gained the generous commendation of
the parents and friends of the chil
dren. Many children when admitted to
the classes di4 not know how to use a
thimble, but at the close of the season
they became quite skillful sewers.
Their work at that time would have
.done credit to many mature persons,
and will prove of incalculamle value
to them, in later life.
The story hour was especially inter
esting and a success. The folk dances
were popular, as were the song games.
In conjunction with the story hour pe
riod mention might be well made
with reference to the sand boxes.
These were always, populated by the
Croquet, ring games and quoites
(horse shoes) were enjoyed by both
sexes. In like manner were those
games such as rolly-polly, etc., enjoy
ed. These, however, originated on the
individual grounds and were not a
part of the playgrounds curriculum.
The interest in . baseball was very
keen, especially at first. Each of the
playgrounds had a senior and junior
team. The reason for lack of enthusi
asm in the couple instances was the
fact that travel to and from the play
ground and park was tiring, especially
hot days. The playing of the sched
ule games at the park was necessitat
ed through lack of space at a majority
of the playgrounds. This condition,
however, did not prevent the schedule
being completed with the remaining
four teams. In the case of the two
teams that dropped out of the race
provision for amusement was made
along other lines.
The field day events occurred the
last week of. August. On Chelsea Pa

In closing, I want to express my

valuable assistance: to the instructors
who gave all they had at their com
mand to make the work a success, and
to the city department who steadily
gave their co-operation. I also pa
preciated the kindness of the many
firms who made many gifts and to
those who volunteered their services
for the welfare of the playground.
President Stanton's Report.
President Stanton then read his re
port as follows:
Members of the Playgrounds Associa.
tion and Friends:
'The reports given cover the year's
work so fully that no detailed State
ment is neededfrom your presHtut at
this time. The importance of the
playgrounds movement is a recognized
fact, and the rapid increase in the
number of cities and communities
maintaining playgrounds and recrea
tion centers is almost phenomenal. We
are proud that our city has a part in
this important" work of conservation
of the energy of childhood, the con
servation of power and health more
precious than the wealth of our forests
and mountains and fields, and the de
velopment of a noble, self controlled
and self respecting citizenship.
The playground has come to stay,
The experimental stage is long uince
passed. The work of the public play
ground supplies a need. Communities
are rapidly being aroused to the fact
that permitting the coming men and
women to rn at large, unheeded anU
unhindered, during the formative yeaia
of their lives is the cause of a largo
part of our juvenile offenses and .
much expense that might be avoided.
The work of the playground is pre

for superfluous energy otherwise too

The year just passed has been our
best, but we have by no means been
able io do all that we would have
liked to do or that should be done to
adequately provide playground facili
ties for the boys and girls of our city
Our campaign for membership and
the Kalian flower market increased
our funds materially and made It pos
sible to place our work on a satisfac
tory basis with a director who devoted
his whole time for the season to this
To the ladies ' who managed the
flower market we are indebted not oniy
for the substantial financial aid but
also for the interest that was aroused
In the work of the playgrounds by the
singing and dancing at the Bale and
also on the streets and lawns by the
school children before and after the
sale. It was a delightful affair from
beginning to end and will not soon be
forgotten. An appropriation by the
city made possible much needed ac
commodations at the Lake street
grounds. Here we have room for the
development of a first class play
ground. A large sum of money might
be invested here in equipment and this
investment would yield a large divi
dend. Trees are needed for shade,
turf should be laid, some plots seeded
to grass, seats provided and other steps
taken to make this place attractive as
a resting place or a recration place as
well as a play center.
The season's work with Mr. Wielt
in charge as director and supervisors
in sharge during the whole day was
carried on very successfully.
The great need feit was that of

. Election of Officers.
The election of officers resulted in
the following choice: President, J. B.
Stanton (re-elected) ; first vice presi
dent, Mayor Timothy C. Murphy; sec
ond vice president. Miss Elizabeth
Huntington; secretary, Arthur L. Peale
(re-elected);- treasurer, John M. Lee
Field Seoretary Wilson.
President Stanton then introduced J.
Herbert Wilson, field secretary of the
National Playgrounds association, who
gave a stereopticon lecture on the work
of the playgrounds association. His
talk was very Interesting and instruc
tive and throughout he kept the close
attention of his audieace.
In opening his talk Mr. Wilson said
that over five millions of dollars have
been spent in this great movement
and that the national association was
responsible for this in a large meas
ure. The first slide showed a group of
boys shooting crap on the streets.
These boys have no other place ot
play. It is only natural that boys
should play, and if they do not have
proper places in which to play they
will resort to the streets and improper
The next slide showed a group of
men in the bread line, reduced to these
circumstances by lack of education and
proper environments. Another slide
showing young children at work in a
canning factory especially made ap
parent the growing need of the good
influences of the playgrounds associa
tion. A group of five boys who had
broken the law and had been present
ed before Judge LJndsley'a court and
a group of boys playing on a dump es
pecially showed the need of the asso
ciation to raise and elevate them above
such surroundings. Another slide of
an East Side street in New "i ork,
thronged with children who having no
other place to congregate, are forced
to resort to the streets.
From this side of the question Mr.
Wilson went on to show pictures of
organized playgrounds in New York
and other large cities of the country.
