LOCAL MENTION J Many Children's Eyes Need Help Now is the time when the child with tin weak eyes of defective vision should be brought here for a 'careful eye examination. School starts next month ami for hours every day and often under artificial light during Ihe even ings, they will have to pour over their studies. Tin; child with defective vision is under a severe handi cap in school work. The constant strain is particu larly telling and makes the child nervous, cross and irritahle. Even a slight weakness of the eyes develops rap idly under strain into something more serious. Such children need glasses. You may not like the idea, but think of 1 lit; child's future. Properly fitted glasses will lake care of the overload. If cared for now the weakness may lie overcome by the time tin; child is full grown. If not, the time will soon come when glasses will be absolutely necessary and doubt less have to be worn for life. It is only fair to children to make an effort 1o save them from this, j,f possible. Jf your child was backward at school las) year or now complains of frepien1 headaches or small ing and stinging sensations in the eyes, Ihe time to have an eye examination made is now before school opens.

We cannot get the new money we need each year from investors to make improvements and extensions if we do not pay all expenses and earn a fair return. In order to extend and develop our system to meet the demands of the public for service, this company must obtain millions of dollars from investors each year. It is to the public's interest, as well as to the interest of the employee and the investor, that the telephone company be prosperous. Mountain States Telephone & Telegraph Company :rrua
