From tbe inquiries conducted by Prof. Hermann Cobn, of Breslau, since 1865, it appears that shortsightedness is rarely or never born with those subject to it, and is almost always the result of strains sustained by the eye daring study in early youth.

A better construction of school desks, and an improved ty pography of text-books, and a sufficient lighting of class-rooms are tbe remedies proposed to abate tbe malady.
