all will be paid promptly in full and
without discount. The security of our

to say, be impaired in the least.

The Cure of Crossed Eyes.
Few people realize the importance of
early correction of the defect known as
"crossed eyes." Yet there is a simple
test which everybody can make and
which proves conclusively that some
thing should be done to remedy this un
sightly and serious malady. Cover the
straight eye with your hand and you
will find that your sight is either very
dim or at least considerably weaker
than that of the other eye. Naturally,
as a crossed eye is never used for vision
and therefore becomes weaker the same
as an arm that is constantly worn in a
sling would finally refnse to do its
service. The earlier this trouble is
remedied, the better are the chances not
only for correction of the disfigurment
bnt also for improvement of the sight.
"My son George," writes, Mr Geo.
C. Aul, of 712 Arch St., Allegheny, Pa.,
was operated for a case of very bad
crossed eyes when he was a trifle over 5
years old. by Dr A Sigmann. the Eye-
Ear-Nose and Throat Specialist of 804
Penn ave., Pittsburg, Pa. It is now 5
years and his eyes are perfectly straight,
and have so increased in strength that
he has discarded the use of glasses.
