When big brother
spends his days working and his
evenings studying, Sister should
see that he does not strain his eyes.
Perhaps the lighting conditions
wh?re he works are not the best,
and so if he begins to cultivate a
frown, it may be that he is bothered
with eye-strain.
Then Sister should send him to
one of our offices, where an oculist '
will scientifically and carefully ?
examine his eyes.
Should our oculist recommend
glasses to overcome the eye-strain
then these may be obtained at the
same office, where a competent
optician will adjust them.
The charges for AI. M. Harris
glasses, which include the exam
?nation, are exceedingly moderate.
You are invited to call from
time to time so that we may see ,
that the glasses are in proper ad
justment and giving you complete j
satisfaction. i

Allies Bar Revival
Restoration Would Be at
Variance With Peace
Treaty. Statement Says
PARIS, Feb. 2.?Formal denial of
rumors that the Allies would promote
or recognize the restoration of the
Hapsburg dynasty in Hungary was is
sued by the Council of Ambassadors
this afternoon. The statement said
such a restoration would be in direct
variance with the principles of the
peace settlement. The text of the
denial follows:
"The principal Allied powers feel
called upon to give most formal denial
of misleading rumors that have been
circulated to the elfect that restora?
tion of the Hapsburg dynasty would ?
be promoted or recognized by them.
'The principal Allied powers con?
sider such restoration of a dynasty,
which to its subjects represented a
system of coercion and domination, in
alliance with Germany, over other
states, would not be consistent either
with the principles for which this war
has heen fought or with the results of
the liberation of subject peoples which
have been achieved.
"While it is not the intention nor
can it be considered tho duty of the'
principal Allied powers to interfere in
the internal affairs of Hungary or dic?
tate to the Hungarian people what
sort of government and constitution
they mav think fi: to adopt for them?
selves, the powers cannot admit that
restoration of the Hapsburg dynasty
can be considered merely as a matter!
interesting the Hungarian nation, and
hereby declare that such restoration
would be at variance with the whole I
basis of the peace settlement and would
be neither recognized nor tolerate,1, by

providing for payment, either by the i
railroads or the concerns to which it j
was sent. A circular letter just issued j
by the United States railroad admin-;
istration, on the stationery of the Il?
linois Central Railroad system, admits;
that 3,512 cars have been taken for
use by that railroad alone. Hut the.
cars taken were identified only by their i
serial numbers, and unless the original;
owners kept a record of the numbers;

The circular letter:
"All concerned Attached find list of '
ears of coal taken over and used by
the Illinois Central Railroad during the
period of the coal strike by authority
of the Fuel Administration. Invoices
' have not been received for this coal,
?'.'though shippers, when known, have
1 been notified of use by the railroad.
"A copy of this list is being sent to
|iines of the Illinois Central Railroad
during the period of the recent strike
of coal miners and to each party who
'has been paid for eoal so shipped. All
who receive this list are requested to
check it against their records of coal
j for which payment has riot been re

i indicated by this list to have been used
by the Illinois Central Railroad.
"We are anxious to pay for this eoal
at the earliest possible date, and you
' are. therefore, requested to take prompt

During the life of the railroad ad?

' regular channels and proper destina

j according to fuel dealers, was some?
I what questionable. When the admin
j istration finally traced the coal and in?
formed the original owner where it
1 had gone, numerous coal men found
I it impossible to collect for their fuel
i because of business failures and, in
?some instances, dishonesty on the part
of the firm aided by the government -
at the expense of coal dealers.
"The administration first announced
that it would make good these claims,
since they were the result ol the gov
? ernment's mistakes," said a New York
j dealer. "But later it was found that
I there was no money lo bo used for this

of Industry Urged by New
Secretary of Agriculture
! MoreProducers Held Vital

I is Seen as One Solution
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.?Elimination
| of useless employees in non-productive
I business, speeding up of all lines of
? industry commensurate with the prcs
| ent activity of the farmers, and dpter
j ruination of retailers and jobbers to
j exact only a reasonable profit were
i recommended as a solution for the high
I cost of living problem by Edwin T.
I Meredith on taking the oath of office
I to-day as Secretary of Agriculture.
The high cost of living problem, the
new Secretary asserted, cannot be
, solved through the efforts of one class,
! but all business and all labor must.
recognize the solution as a common
duty or "less and less will there be
of farm produce to divide among the
whole people and higher and higher
will go the price of thai which is pro?
"The farmer.- of America." said Sec
j retary Meredith, "are willing to assume
their part of the responsibilities as
American citizens in meeting any prob
lern threatening the welfare and sta?
bility of our country, but this high
cost of living problem is a mutual one,
and they ask that it be approached bj
all ?le- people as a common problem,
Eliminate Lost Motion
"They ask that those engaged in di;
tribution eliminate the lost motion and
not put so great a burden upon pro
duction as there is upon it to-day.
In other words, they ask that there be
:.., adequate number of producers of
wealth, and this includes property and
food of all kinds, and only such, num?
ber of distributors a is necessary t ?
perform the services required. They
ask that banks, railroad-, whole ?'??
houses, retail establishments, factories,
all of which are vitally necessary to
.the furnier and recognized by him as
such, be speeded up along with him,
that the work now dune by three men
may be done, it possible, by two. and
?the burden of transportation and dis
tribution be thereby lightened.
"Business nun must look to the
?operation of their establishments, no
matter in what line they may be en?
gaged, and see that no useless em?
ployee is retained to add to the cost
of distributing what the farmer now pro?
duces. Useless employees must be re?
leased from non-productive work that
they may go into productive work and
add to the. sum totul that may be dis?
tributed among all. Let us have six
tenths of our people in production and
four-tenths in distribution, that, there
| may be six-tenths of what a man can
produce each day for each of us, rather
than have fourt-tenths in production
and six-tenths in distribution, which,
gives us only four-tenths of what a
man can produce each day for each
of us.
