THE SEDAIJA WEEKLY BAZOO. OCTOBER 27, 1891.
i THE YOUNG WEAR THEM. Cse of SpeotacUs U no Longer a Sign or old Are There is an old saying that a people whoso noses are spanned by spectacle are a people learned in the several avocations of life requiring hard study. At one time German professors, who were acknowledge to bo the hardest students in the world, held a monopo ly upon these adjuncts to the vision, and the singular idea became current, as the number of gold bowed glasses Increased that the Germans are a shortsighted people. Later on when Boston set the paco and the Beacon hill organ was tightly clasped by the rimless eyo-glass, peo ple began to speculate upon the causes of the failing sight of the Americans. When speculation gave way to investi gation, it was discovered in nearly ev ery case that the habits of life, the con finement to offices and even school rooms had either fully developed a latent muscular defect in the eyes or by straining the retina, nerves and tel ascopic muscles had produced a defect The extent to which spectacles have spread over this country is alarming. Where, a few years ago. gray hairs or patent defects of vision were deemed inseparable from glasses, now nothing is more common than to sec young people wearing them, whose eye3, to all outward seeming, need no artificial aid in painting correctly the figures upon the retina. In many of these oases the vision is perfect when the fbous can be adjustea. Too much work over books, with too little exer cise, has caused a weakness of the muscles of accommodation, the result being that a constant effort, painful in the extreme, is necessary to adjust the eyes to long and short range. They work like a pair of telescopes, r!r tn hn mnr snnetfie. onera. classes. n 11 i.m m niiinni'H irrim Liin mLiii.'L lii the pupil is lengthened or shortened to accommodate the focus to the d la tan oe at which It Is located from the object seen. If the nerves are overtaxed and the musoles fail to promptly answer the signals given them, inflammation, blur ring, and it may be blindness result. Speaaing of the prevalence of diffi culty with the eyes recently, says the Kansas City Journal, a specialist of local reputation remarked: "You would be surprised to note the number of oases one meets with, where the ' patient's are slightly inflamed, but with no other indication of serious trouble. A spark of dust, a cinder or any foreign body, however small, i j i . M..A. higher inflammation, yet such cases as the latter amount to little, as they are cared for at once. When a per son comes to me with tired eyes, too full in the under lids, complaining of headache in the forward portion of the head extending backwards to the base of the skull, I at once test the focus ing power of the organs to see if astig matism is not present In nearly every instance I find one or both eyes working badly. "Upon examination, I find that the patient has been accustomed to make enormous drafts upon the most deli cate organs of his body. Constant application to a set of books, continu ous' reading, fine needle and lace work, with poor lights, are the originating causes of the trouble. . At first there is a slight burning feeling, temporarily relieved by applying cold water, but It surely comes back. The next sensa tion is the frequent recurrence of those nasty, dull headaches, so fre quent that in the last stages before a physician is consulted that they never leave. They are there, the temples throbbing painfully upon retiring and resuming the steady beat as soon as the eyes again encounter the light. 'After the burning sensation follows one as of some foreign body under the lid. As the eye winks the lid grates over the ball and an immediate effort is made to dislodge the particle, of course without success. Finally the patient consults an oculist and is con demned to wear glasses and possibly to an absolute rest and cessation from the work that brought about the trou ble. It is wonderful to contemplate the number of cases caused by foolish and even criminal carelessness, not to con sider those where the necessity for la bor has caused the trouble. In the very young school children cases, the cause is almost wholly duo to youthful inexperience, accentuated by the ne cessity that exists under our school system for night study. A growing child should not be allowed, much less forced, to learn lessons for the next day at a time when he should be asleep. Bookkeepers, bank clerks and office employes generally suffer from astigmatism and arc forced to the use of spectacles at an early age. Climate influences also affect the eyes, where the patient is at the same time engaged in extensive reading or writing. Do you know there aro a number of army officers among the juniors who wear glasses. They study hard at first in order to make credit able showings. Then again they re- AlV v ui is UiUUUMUJ iiuu t.vs. jjuii A son duty by reading and writing when . not on dutr. In the windv. dustv frontier parts their eyes fill with alka line dust that, in Itself, is very irri- velops any latent aeiect tnai may ex ist "At the present rate it will soon be difficult to find men unspectacled who can fill these positions. The fact is, very few have perfect eyes. In many cases the defect is small and unless aggravated by abuse may never cause the person any inconvenience, but if once developed, eye glasses follow and the patient can never lay them aside. PRISONS FOR ARROWS. the Various Queer Ways la Which They Were Obtained. The use of poisoned arrows is un foubtedly of very ancient origin," ;aid Dr. W. J. Hoffman, to a Washing ion Star reporter. Thoy aro believ id to have been employed in Europe n prehistoric times, and later on. ac jording to Aristotle. Strabo and Pliny, the Celts and Gauls envenomed their ihafts with the juico of a plant of the renus hellebore. The Scythians pre pared arrow poison by mixing serpent renom with the serum of putrid blood, ind other instances are recorded in literature of peoplo about the Black lea and in Asia Minor who practiced ilmilar arts. The Alnos of Japan prepare a poison for spreading upon bamboo or metal arrow-points to kill game with. i small portion of flesh about the xound being cut out before the anl ual is cooked and eaten. In Java, Borneo, New Guinea, and other of the Bast India Islands the same practice jbtains to a considerable extent Tho poisoning of arrows prevails exten lively in Africa, particularly on tho west coast in the Gaboon, among tho Somali, and with the Bushmen. By ;he Bushmen the juice of a plant is ised, mixed with the pulp of a venom us worm. "The best known and most active of oolsons is the woorara or 'urari' of South America. It is chiefly used for the tips of darts blown from the blow fun, and the most important ingredi ent is the juice of the plant from which strychnine is obtained, to which is added certain other vegetable ele ments and serpent venom. In Cen tral America poisons are also employ ed on arrows and blow-gun darts, the Caribs employ similarly a poison made from the sap of a tree called the mancenllles.' The antidote was the application to the wound of what we know as arrowroot' "The Seris of northwestern Mexico prepared poison by putting into the ground a cow's liver, rattlesnakes, scorpions, centipedes and other un pleasant things, and beating tbem with a stick. Into the mixtures the arrow points were dipped. The Apaches and neighboring tribes were, until recently, in the habit of smear ing upon their arrows a composition laid to consist of decomposed deer's liver and rattlesnake venom. In somo instances crushed red ants are also re ported to have been used. A micro scopic examination of such a coating upon arrows obtained from Apaches in 1871 showed the presence of blood and a crystalline substance that was ap parently rattlesnake venom. The venom of serpents retains its poisonous properties, when dried indefinitely. One instance of poisoning by such an arrow mentioned to me was that of a man whose wound was a mere scratch on the shoulder blade, but previous to death, which ensued, the flesh of the man's back fell off, exposing the ribs and spine in several places. "The Shoshone and Bannack In dians state that the proper way to poison arrows, as formerly practiced by them, is to secure a deer and cause it to be bitten by a rattlesnake, im mediately after which the victim is killed and tho meat removed and placed in a hole in the ground. When the mass has become putrid tho ar row points are dipped into it The Clallams of Fuget sound used to make arrow points of copper, which were afterward dipped in sea water and permitted to corrode. I have never met an Indian who would admit the use of poisoned arrows in warfare against man. In nearly all instances when poisons are prepared by Indians tho operation is performed with more or less ceremony, chanting and in cantation, for tho purpose of invoking evil spirits or demons. In their belief the effects of poison aro duo wholly to tho presence in them of malovolten spirits or demons, which enter tho body of the victim and destroy life. Ossification of the Eye. Samuel A. Avila,' the Republican leader in tho Eleventh ward in Brook lyn, recently had his left eyo removed by a surgeon, says tho New York Sun: Thirty-five years ajro. when in his nineteenth year, Mr. Avila was badly injured while he was at work in his father's paint shop, a piece of broken nail having lodged in his eye. By the advice of Dr. Agnew he concluded not to have the piece of nail removed, and until last March, when ho began to suffer with pains in the left side of his head, he experienced no trouble from it The pains in his head became so acute that he consulted Dr. Matthew ' son, who informed him that ho was ' suffering from the very rare disease of ossification of the eye, and that he would have to get it out The opera tion was successfully performed. Mr. Avila says that he never had a better time in his life than during the hour he was under the Influence of ether. The small piece of nail is still in tho hall, as the ball .is so hard that tho iron cannot be removed from it Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. JAPAN FORCINO AHEAD. light and Liberty Hare Wrought Great Beneflti. In no country have such momentous political and industrial changes oc curred in a brief period as Japan. ' Prior to 18G8 it was an absolute des ' potlsm based upon divine right The common people, and, above all, the laboring classes, were mere property attached to tho soil. Socially and po litically the Japanese coolio of the past generation was lower than tho negro slave of tho United States prior to 18C0, the Russian serf prior to I80G, the feudal villein or the Saxon thralL A dalmio or prince was justified in killing one for an insolent look. To-day Japan is a constitutional monarchy, says the Chicago Herald, under which the laborer has almost tho same privileges as has an Ameri can citizen at home. He can own land and bring suit against tho most power ful prince or richest arch-priest: his life, liberty and property aro as secure as law can make them. Unlike France and America, these changes have come from tho govern ing and not tho governeJ. The peo ple still cling to and love tho old forms nnd usages. If on the road when on horseback or in a vehicle they meet a superior, they di-mount and kneel or bow until he is a hundred yards away. If one of a higher caste enters their homo or store, they ex press their delight and gratitude at his condescension by salaaming and kotowing until to tho American mind it becomes utter weariness and vexation of spirit If a prince or n noble takes fancy to a young girL daughtor of a tradesman or farmer, the parents hand her over to the admirer as if it were the greatest possible favor to bo al lowed so to do. In the theatres, al though they are passionately fond of amusement they give up their seats without a murmur to any late party o'f social superiors who chance to drop in for a few minutes to see the show. Up to 1870 society was purely patri archal. The patria potestas was al most unlimited. A man could sell his wife, daughter, daughter-in-law and even grandchildren. Within the fam ily his will was law. He had tho pow er of life and death over all the other members and used it at his d:crct:on. Among curious powers possessed under this system, ho could pawn his wife and daughters for concubines and his sons and grandsons for slave laborers for a period not exceeding five years. The peaceful revelutlon mentioned has instituted the domestic relations of Europe and America and has abolished the patria potestas. Tho people ac cept the change as a necessary ovil and in their habits preserve the old system. In the old days the people were Buddhists with a sprinkling of follow ers of Confucius and shlntoism. It is now fashionable to be a christian, and there are probably 500,000 nominal christians in Japan. No matter what the sect or denomination, the people are rapid believers In that queer doc trine known as faith cure and christian healing. The result is that hundreds of thousands die or become disfigured or maimed for life, who with proper medical treatment would have been healthy members of society. A wealthy family in Tokio affords a good illustra tion. Their children, six in number, were attacked with ophthalmia. They declined to call in a physician, and when two friendly doctors volunteered their services refusod them In positive anger. For three months tho father, mother and relatives spent nil their time in prayer at either tho tcmplo or their home. By that timo the discaso had run its course and the children were hopelessly blind. Even then they displayed no sorrow, but declnred the misfortune to bo an inscrutable providence of a loving Lord. Any one who recovers from illness, no matter how slight or trivial, is believed to have regained health through a special interposition of the divino being through tho instrumentality of some particular shrine or priest Gratitude is the samo tho world over. Under these auspices it expresses itself in an immenso revenue to tho temples. M. Kato, a publicist of standing, states that it varies in amount according to the hcalthfulncss or un hcalthfulness of tho year nnd that it never falls below $30,000,000 per an num. Tho wealth and power of tho hierarchy are as formidable in Japan as even thoso of tho church in Mexico before our sister republic confiscated tho church properties. Bellamy's Dream Coming to Pane. The telephone is put to a new uso in the frreat hotel at Tamna which Mil- lionairc Plant has just built to rival inoso 01 iuuuonaj.ro riagicr at ou Augustine. Instead of an electric press button every room will have a I telophono connection with tho office. Guests will be able to communicate not only with tho office, but with their friends in other rooms at wilL Tho great orchestrion, which was ono of J tho marvels of tho Paris exposition, is to be placed in tho largo music room of tho hotel. It has been arranged that any guest in his room can, by J merely telephoning to the office, be , connected with the orchestrion and have tho music transmited to him in full volume. In fact he can put in actual practice ono ot tho most won derful of Bellamy's conceptions, and every night if he likes, go to sleep listening to harmonies. Electric Pro gross.
