TO SAVE EYES
Is the Object of This Free Prescription
Try it if Your Eyes Give
Thousands of people suffer from eye
troubles because they do not know
what to do. They know some good
home remedy for every other minor
ailment, but none for their eye trou
bles. They neglect their eyes because
the troubleis sot sufficient to drive
them to an eye specialist, who would,
anyway, charge them a heavy fee. As
a last resort they go to an optician or
to the live and ten-cent store, and
oftentimes get glasses that they do not
need, or wnich, after being used two
or three months, do their eyes more
injury than good. Here is a simple
prescription that every one should
5 grains Optona (1 tablet) -
2 ounces water
Use three or four times a day to
bathe the eyes. This prescription and
the simple Optona system keeps the
yes clean, sharpens the vision and
quickly overcomes the Inflammation
and irritation; weak, watery, over
worked, tired eyes and other similar
troubles are greatly benefitted and
oftentimes cured by its use. Many re
ports show that wearers of glasses
bave discarded them after a few weeks'
use. It is good for the eyes and con
tains no ingredient which would in
jure the most sensitive eyes of an In
fant or the aged. Lee & Osgood or
any druggist can fill this prescription
promptly. Try it and know for once
what real eye comfort is.

Gift Made to Miss Sadie A. Driscoll,
Soprano at St. Mary's.
Following the high mass in St.

Rev. John H. Fltzmaurice, requested
the members of the choir to meet him

he presented her a handsome Kold

The pastor said that the gift was of
fered in recognition of honors at
tained at the Willimantic Normal
school, from which she had graduated
as a school teacher during the past
week. He further said in the course
of his remarks that though her Ini
tials were S. A. D., it was no indica
tion that sadness would ever enter
her career and that they all hoped
her future life would be one of much
joy and happiness. He congratulated
her on the honors she had attained
in advancing from the desk tt the
platform and gave her his blesstng.
Miss Driscoll was completely taken
by surprise and showed her emotion
as she had entered the assembly room

She thanked Father Fitzmaurice for
his kind wishes and sentiments ex
pressed and also thanked the choir
for the esteem and kind heartedness
which prompted the remembrance.
Miss Driscoll has been the leading
soprano singer of the choir for the
past three years during which she has
endeared herself to all the members

she has shown talent will be retained
in the choir. She resided with her
parents at No. 213 North Main street.
OPEN AIR MEETING
UNDER Y. M. C. A. AUSPICES
Held at Buckingham Memorial Rev.
H. J. Wyckoff the Speaker.
The Y. M. C. A. conducted an open
air meeting at the Buckingham .Me
morial Monday afternoon with a fair
ly good attendance considering the
coolness of the weather. Rev. H. J.
Wyckoff of the Second Congregational
church was the speaker. R. W. Otis
played the cornet and Miss Harriet
Coit presided at the portable organ.
Rev. Mr. Wyckoff chose for his sub
ject. Seeing the Unseen, and among
some of the things he said were the
following: There are lots of things
we don't see but we believe. We have
perhaps never seen a man's brain, but
we know and believe that he has one.
All that we need sometimes is the help
to see. People who are blind axe not
so blind as those who can see and
won't see. Worse than they are those
who think they see and don't see.
They are the hardest to make see.
A certain man, Jesus, went through
this world approaching groups of peo
ple with blind eyes and opened their
eyes so that they might see and he
tried and did make people look the
right way. Lots of people go to the
White mountains to see the human
face carved by nature on the rocks
and at first cannot locate it until they
have been shown where to look.
Is it fair for us to say that there is
no religion because we cannot see it
just like the seeker for the face in
the mountain. Surrender yourself to
Htm and look from the right plac-o
and with the right eyes.

The will was admitted to probate
on April 11th. 1914. and The Rhode
Island Hospital and Trust company,
of Providence. K. I., qualified as execu
tor of the same.
In his will John Eccles left his only
brother a legacy of $1,500. out of an
estate which the inventory and ap
praisal has shown amounts to over
$4-25,000. Substantially all this prop
erty was left to religious and char
itable Institutions by John Eocles,
whose only heir at law was his broth
er. William B. Eccles. as John Eccles
had no children and his wife to whom
he had been married many years bad
died before him.
The relations of the two brothers,
it Is said, were always of an effection-
ate. confidential and devoted character.
each performing the kindest offices for
the other. Had no will been made.
William B. Eccles,. as sole heir, would
have taken all the estate by the laws
of Connecticut. In the will no reason
is given by John Eccles for leaving
the very small legacy to his brother
and no reason therefore is known to
exist. It is rumored that the provi
sions of the will are contrary to an
existing compact made by the broth
ers in regard to their affairs.- At the
time the will was proved in the pro
bate court William B. Eccles was in
Kngland and had no notice or oppor
tunity to appear In that court In op
position to the will.
He came here in the early part of
this month and shortly after his ar
rival was served by the probate court
with the customary notice, which gave
him the usual thirty days in which to
take an appeal from the probate court.
William B. Eccles. who is a man
of verv small means, now claims that
the will of John Eccles in invalid and
should be set aside and later it is
said specific reasons will be filed in
the superior court setting forth fully
the objections to the will.
