Persons "peak of thlr ejes being fa tisrutd, nxaniug tlieraby thai the tec ins portion of tin braiu is fatigued, but Id that says Dr. Vf . W. Se.ly, they are mistaken. So men say their brains are tired. The retina of the eye, which is a part of the brain and an offshoot from it. hardly ever in tired. The fatigue is ia the inner and outer muscles attached to the eye and in the muscle of accomo dation. The eye-ball resting in a bed of fat, has attached to it six muscles for taming it In any desired direction, and the muscle attached to the side nearest the uose and one at the outer angle of the eye should, in erery normal eye", be balanced. They are used in converging the eye on the object to be viewed, and the inner muse'es are used the more when the object is nearer. The muscle of accommodation is one which sur rounds the leus of the eye. When it is wauted to gaze at objects near at band, this muscle relaxes and allows the lens to thicken, increasing its retractive pow er at the same time that the muscles on the inner or nasal side of -the eye con tract or direct the eyes to the point gaz ed at. It is in these muscle that the fatigue is felt, and ono finds relief in closing i he eyes or in gazing at objects at a distance. The chief source of fa iigne is the lvck of balance in the two sets of inner and outer muscles of . ac commodation. It may be set down that there is something wrong when the eye becomes fatigued. The defective eye, as it gives out sooner, is really safer from se vere strains. The usual indication of strains is a redness of the rim of the rye lid.betokening a congested stateof the in ner suf ace, accompanied with some pain. Whsn it is shewn that the eye is not equal to the work required of it the proper remedy is not rest, for that is fa tal to its strength, but the use of glasses of sufficient power to rendei unnecessa ry sufficient effort in accommodating the eye to vision. It is not good sente to waste time in resting the eye, and that practice does not strengthen it. Eyes begin to age at about the tenth or twelfth voar of life, when they have reached their fnll developemont. At the age of 45 or 60 years the lenses cease to thicken, when the pressure is removed and their presbyopic, or old sight begias, When a child is compelled to use or re quire the use of glasses, there is little reason to hope that it will outgrow the need; but the person will use three glas ses as a basis, adding other glasses as he reaches the age when old sight be gins or using thicker glasses. Dr. Seely however mentioned one ease ne had ob served whare a child had outgrown the need of glasses, but la the meantime be had grown from a small and puny child to a large and well developed man. Second sight or the apparent recovery of strength of vlsion.which is sometimes seen In the aged, the lecturer explain ed as a change an elongation in the shape of.the eyeball, by which the per sun became nearsighted, accompanied by a change in the lees caused by the appearaaee of the eataract. Scientific American. REAL "NERVE." A 'Woodcliopper'f Exhibition of Fortitude. New York Sun: "I saw an exhibition of what yr.n might call nerve the other day up in Delaware County," said Dea con Charles N, Bean of the public stores "I was up thero on business last week mar Ilarperstitld and an acquaintance took me out to fish for pickerel through tne ice. un eur way to the pond we came to a couple of men chopping in the woods. My friend knew one of the men and stopped to talk with him. The other man kept on chopping. He had made but two or three strokes with his ax when it flew oil the handle. The sharp blade whizzed through the air, passed close to my friend's head, and striking the other chopper, whose name was Ha- gar, cut his nose oil close to his face as close as if it had been done with a razor The man who had lost it put his haad up to his. face in a startled sort of a way and looked down at tne severed nose as if he could hardly believe his eyes. When the full force of the situation struck him he looked at his fellow chopper with an expression or surprise and deep in jury on his face and said: "Well. Jack, you're rt d n nice fel low. ain't veV" "Iligar then stooped and picked up his nose and, pressing his handkerchief to his bleeding faee, astonished both my friend and myself by resuming the sub jeet UDon which they had been talking, which was the making of a contract for some chopping as If nothing of cense auence had occurred to interrupt it. My friend, however, started the other chap to the village after a doctor and wanted to take llagar at once on his buck board llagar wouldn't hear to this, and said he would cut across to nis cabin through the woods and wait for the doctor, and he started off without any apparent hur rr. carrying his nese in his hand. When we returned at night we went out of our way two miles to inanlre at ter llagar. We found him chopping up fire wood in frent of the cabin, There wns a bandage around his face. When we asked him if the doctor had seen him he said: '"Yes he's been here. He stuck the nose on in its old place and bound it there, and said he believed it would grow fast again, as he had known of such things happening. Say, I came blame near getting mad at Jack when that ax flew off to-day. He's al ways cutting np some dido or other.' "Then we drove back to HarDesfield I had a letter to-day from my friend. He had lust ceme irom a visit to Hairar. 11 says the naan is getting Along and that the nose win grow last again, sure. row these are facts, ana i tell you that Hairar struek me as giving an exhibition of what you might call nerve." Th Good Old Timet. Talk of the rood old times. Mrs. C. B. Parker has kindly handed ne a bundle of papers printed at Delphi, Tad., from which we gleam some cerreet ideas of the good old times of '48 and '49, less than forty years age. Plank roads were then being built us the cheapest and most avauaoie means or communication between cities of larger size nearer to gether. The telegraph would soon be completed to St. Louis, while an exten sion to New Orleans was seriously con- tempiatea. My the end of 1849 it was expected that 5.000 miles wo a Id be in operation. . I he Supreme Court of Texas held its session in a "grocery" which in those days meant a saloon. The population of the United States was 20,748,400. . . The papers were dull compared with those of tt day. Party epiiitran high. and political speeches were printed with whole sentences printed in italics and capitals, by way of calling attention to the poiuts made by the orators. I he bank questien was a rreat prob lem in those days, and the system, or lack of it, one of utter confusion and continual loss. The Issue of the Delphi Republican of May 30. 1818, contains a letter from Gen. Zaehary Taylor defending his official report that the Second Indiana Regi ment had tied the field at Bueua Vista. It atse alludes to the rising in Ireland nd the Polish insurrection. The grand United States circus proud ly advertised 150 men and horses, and its chief attraction was the wonderful feat of riding two horses at one time. It was decided upon the authority of officers of the army serving in Mexico that Mexican whisky was inferior to bourbon which bad already established a reputation. Merchants were even then selling goods below cost, and everything fine was of foreign brand. General laylor favored the employ ment of bloodhounds to trail hostile In dians in Florida, and approved their em ployment by the army. John Mitchell, the Irish patriot, wns transported to the Bermudas in 1848. His wife died a few days la'er at her home in Ireland. Many things quaint and curious are to be seen in these old papers, but to at tempt a numeration of them would take teo much space. The general im pression after going through them is that the good old times were not so good after all. Slate Journal, Liacoln Neb. John M'Cullough's Wife. One of John McCullough's supports. the man who was with him during his lat stage act, tells me that he is getting oeuer, ana mat nm wiie is waning ui him. Savs this man: "It is a mistake to suppose that John McCullough has had so much trouble with his wife. She loves him devotedly, and he has support ed her and visited her now and then for years, when the world thought the two saw nothing ot one another. When Mc Cullough and his wife were married they were nearer a par intellectually than they are now. But McCulleugh kfnt rising, and his wife stood ttill un til at last John grew far away from her, lie weit te see her however, all the time, and she continued to love him. One day a busybody among the women of her acquaintance called upon Mrs. Me Cullough. aud straightway began to abuse John Said she: 'They say John never comes to see you. 1 have no use for such men that treat their wives in that way! I think they oueht to be hwne and "Here Mrs. McCullough, who had grown red in the face, and was leaning over looking up the street, said: "Madam do you see that man walking there several blocks awnyr "The woman said she did. "'Well' continued Mrs. MeCullong wauM have you understand that that man is John MeCnllongh. and more than that. I want yon to understand that I ears more for that man s eoat tans man you de fer your whole husband. Good day, Madam?"' Cleveland Leader. Vlaine on Colfax. Mr. Blaine in his "Twenty Years of Congress," says: Schuyler Colfax was eenecia lv fitted for the Chair, lie had been a member of the House for. eight years, having been chosen directly at ter the repeal oi the Missouri com prom lso. He came from good revolutionary stock in New Jersey, but bad been rear ed in the west; had learned the trade of a printer and had edited a successful iournal nt South Bend. He was a para con of industry, wita neen.quieK. orient intellect. He mingled freely and cred itably In the debates. With a wisdom in which many able members seem de Client, he had given studious attention to. the rales of the House, and was mas tar of their comblexitiei. Kindly and cordial by nature, it was easy for him to cultivate the art of popularity, which he did with tact and constancy. He came to the chair with absolute goed will from hath sides of the Home, and as nrefildlnr officer nroved himself able prompt, far-minded and jut in all bis rulings. A Frightened Baby. A New Yorker who happened to be 1 Boston for a day availed himself ef the nnnortunity to make a soeial call. He was shewn into the parlor and while waiting there a nurse entered with a lit tie baby in her arms. Ity nitty tootsey wootsey. said the New Yorker addressing his conversation to the infant, "oozv, boozy, goozy nooz " At this juncture the child set up a howl that made an engraymtr ot jLmerson rattle aorainst the wall. I'm afraid she doesn't understand you sir " remarked the nurse. "There, there Penelope" she said soothingly, "and were you alarmed at a combination of circum stances over which you had no control that led te the unexpected appearance of a strange gentleman?" It this the screwed vjd expression on the child faee relaxed, her sobs ceased and she slumbered. SPUING WITHOUT HLOSSOMS. ate in Life to Look for J my Yet New. cr to Litt to 9Ind. Readers of Hawthorne's "Honse of Seven Gables" will recall the pathos with which poor Clifford Pyncheon, who had been unjust- unprlsruea since ins early manhood, said. after his release; "Mr life is gone, and where iny happiness? Oh. eive me hit happiness.'' But that could he done only in part, as gleams of warm sunshine occasion lj fall across the gloom of a New England autumn day. in a letter to Messrs liiscox & u)., Mr. h. IL Titus, of Pennington. N. J., pays: "I have suffered untold misery from childhood from chronic disease of the bowels and diarrhoea, accompanied by great pain. 1 sought relief at the hands of physicians of every school and us ed every patent and domestic remedy under the . sun. I have at last found in Park EE's Tonic complete specific, preventive and cure.' As your Invaluable medicine, which did for me. wnai nothing else could do, is entitled to tlio credit of my getting back my happy days, I cheerfujly and gratefully acknowledge the fact." Mr. E. S. Wells, who needs no Introduction to the people of Jersey City, adds' The testi mony ef Mr. Titus is genuine and voluntary: only be does not adequately portray the suffer ing ne nas endured for many years. He Is my brother-in-law, and I know the case well. He is now perfectly free from bis old troubles, and enjoys health and life, ascribing it all to Parkkks Tonic.
