Home Errors in Selecting GlavMH A Valu
able I'iijalololcal Truth.
One sourco of error in buying glasses is
mentioned bv ifadical CIibioB. ThLs is the
hurried trial giren them. Many persoun find
afterward that while everything appeared
bright and clear from a. few minutes' uso of
the glasses selected, after continued wear
they tire the eye or tlie print becomes
blurred Tim may happen in eitlkjr near
sighted or farsighted persons, for. whn tbe
nearsighted patieut is allowed to Ktlwt his
own glass ho tv ill ir&OO per cent of cases se
lect too etrong a ghuo, becauso it will pve
him a brighter or clearer picture; wberaus
tho patient electing glasses for oULage will
t-ke a glass lu most instances which enlarges
tho prmt, thinking that tho larger the pnnt
appears to him tho better ho sees; or, on th
contrary, bo will bo guided by th number
of tho glass, bohoviug m the genoral falsa
opinion that tbe longer one delays in putting
on glasses, or that by Uhiug tho weakest glaM
poaiible, he is preserving his sight for a long
er timo cither of which selections is, of
courso, wrong.

lady tv ho nearly attained five oore years
"A nierrv huart doeth good like a nifii

physiological truth of Immense practical
value It is a fact, not so difficult to explain
as might be supposed, that many pwrtona sno
camb to an attack at a time when numbers
are sick of the some malady and not a few
uro dying from it who would have recovered
if they hod been the only sufferers. Tho
effect of the mind upon the body ia uo strong
ly inarkM that tho first effort of all well in
formed physicians, when call's! to attend a
person wvui with any malady, is to e;uro
mental tranquillity and a hopeful spirit.
Whatever may bo paid cf tbe powr of
faith to-cure dinoso and restore the nek, no
one who has bad any experienc with inva
lids will d"ny that tbe want of it bos left
many to die who wonhl have recovered if
they bad been sanguine of tho result. A
