j ii i FREE -YE TALK. v The Lawyers/diane a Saying That "The lawyer who pleads his own case has a fool for hie oliant~" and many sad results are met with in proof of the fact that the man who undertakes to correct his own defects of vision ha~a patient who is far from wise and who rune a great risk of being unfortunate. And there is no case where one ounce of pre- vention is not worth many pounds of cure, and all may avoid subjecting the organs upon which our labors and plea~ ures greatly depend to unnecessary soil, by having the eyes properly fitted with glasses, by having expert opticians who have had years of experience, and are, therefore, reliable. We fit any and all eyes. You don't go to a blacksmith to get a set of teeth, neither can you fit your eyes with a tape-measure. Then why not go to an expert optician to have your eyes fitted with glasses? Any in- telligent person can readily see the ne- verity of consulting an expert optician in order to hove a perfect correction of any visual defect. We have a full line of convex and concave, sphericol and cylindrical lenses, and are prepared to fit any eye that responds to light, and do "it with the first pair. No charge for test- ing. No agents employed and no ped- dlers supplied with our goods. You must come to our office if you want them. E. ]3. SMITH, ST. LOUIS OPTICAL CO., OPHTHALMIG OPTICIAN. NEWS OF TilE WEEK.! State And General News Condensed For 0ur Country Readers. Canon City hen recicved $10,000 from Andrew Carnegie for a public library. Representative Shafroth introduced a bill to increaea the limit of cost of the Denver mint to $800#00. Forty thousand acres of land have been purchased in Oklahoma for a colo- ny of 1000 German families who will de- vote themselves to cultivating sugar beets for the fsetorieh. Among nominotions confirms&by the senate were those of B. C. Fleming, rag- ister of the land office at Sterling; C.B. Timberlake, receiver of public moneys at Sterling, and P. Hobkirk, receiver at Del Norte, Colo. Senator Penrose has introduced a bill levying a duty of 25 per cent ad valorem on all importations of unmanufactured eilvar, the avowed purpose of the meas- ure being to protect the silver mining industry of the United Staler. The most valuable quarter section of land in the whole world is probably that of Beaumont, Texas, upon which are lo- cated the great oil wells. Two years ago this tract would have been dear at $30 per acre, while today it is valued at 8400,000,000. = There was a time when the United Stat~ imported horses regularly and had practically no exporting record in that line. In the last fiscal year, how- ever, we exported 65,000 head, and in the past five years have sold hers abroad to the value of $17,000,000. A bill to provide revenue temporarily for the Philippine islands passed the house by a vote of 163 to 128. Five re- publicans voted against its puesge and three democrats for it. The bill imposes the Dingley rates on ~ocds entering the Philippines from the Ucited States. It also provides for the collection of tonnage taxes on vessels plying between the United States and the Philippines, and that foreign vessels may ply between these ports until January 1, 1905. The duties and taxes collected under the pro- visions of the bill shall go into the Phil- ippine treasury, to be expended for the use and benefit of the islands. The most remarkable family disney, ered by the census enumerators was at a little village named Mary's Home, in Miller county, Me., abou! thirty mil~ from Jefferson City. The enumerator in that district reports that he found aMro. Henry Smith, wife of a storekeeper, 32 years old, who during a brief marriage of seven years had presented her devoted husband with sixteen children. Only one of them was a "solitaire." There were two pairs of twins, two sots of triplets and onoquintet, five sturdy boys at a birth, averaging six pounds in weight. Tboy ara all alive and heirty, their moth- er ia as active and strong as any woman in the state. In Wyomil~g the Platte valley sheep company has brought action against Price Martin et al in a suit for treupa~ end the cue is set for January 16.

We have made a life study of the eye, and understand the fitting part thoroughly. No guess work here. One hundred yea~s ago few !people knew how to treat their eyes.

Hundreds of our leading citi- zens will tell whether we understand our business or not. It is reassuring to note that in spite of the greater number of people wearing glasses, the percentage of blind persons is on the decrease. This would indicate that the proper ad- justment of glosses is saving sony peo- ple from going blind. Don't "monkey" with your eyes. If they are bothering you, call and find the trouble.

But when o~e discerns a hint of dimness, a tired feeling and ache in the eyeballs or repeated headaches, then glasses may be of great service in preventing serious trouble. Only be sure you begin with the right glasses. It is our business to furnish you with that. Consultation free PROPOSED LEASING LAW. Forage on the ranges is becoming scarcer each year, and stockmen have prepared a bill which, in all probability, will be introduced in the house immed- iately. The promoters announced the object of the bill to be as follows: The purpose of this proposed legisla- tion is to prevent the further free use in common of the public domain in the arid grazing region, and thereby to prevent the destruction of the forage by over- stocking the same, by which proc~ the land in becoming desert, the country more arid, and springs and watercourses losing their flow. Used free and in com- mon, the western range is practically without law, and the competitors for its occupancy attempt to hold ~t agaist each other by violence and armed force, onus- in the destruction of life and property. "Tue policy of this government proper is the eneouragement of settlers to co i cupy all parts of the public domain upon which families may gain a living. To this end the proposed law reserves all the rights, of the homestead settler. The government encourages the adventurous mineral prospector, and this law reser- ves all his rights to make mineral entry in any part of the domain that it covers. "Besides these prospective entrymen there are existing rights that must be protected. The present agricultural set- tler, who tills the land, rases crops and keeps domestic stock, finds under the present system of free use of the public domain that flocks and herds are driven upon his freehold, consume the forage upon which hm domestic animals should feed, and inflict such injury upon him that he is frequently oonstramed to sac- rifice.his property and seek another loca- tion only to be again overtaken by the same intolerable conditions. The pro- posed law gives him the preference of a leasehold on abutting public domain, which he may protect from tha trespass- es which now injure him. "The next preference is given to free- holders whose pursuits are pastoral, to protect themselves in like manner from nomads and secure the range needed for :their stock. "Lands not taken by either of the fore- going classes of freeholders shall be sub- ject to lease by sto~kgrowers who were in use and occupancy during the year ending Jan. 1, 1901, each to have a lease- l hold in proportion to his interests, so that none, not even the least, can be ex- I cluded. "Thepo~sessors of leaseholds to state lands, in area limited to 640 acres are given the same rights as freeholders. "hefixing of time of pastoral occu- ! pansy at the year ending on Jan. 1, 1901, is ~,o exclude combinations of capital forming for the purpose of getting lease hold control of these lands, to the exclu- sion of the western range-men and stock- growers who now o~cupy them in corn- moll. "To absolutely guard the rights of all against combination by a few the lasses are not open to bid. There will be no auction at which the strong can over- come the weak. Every man haz his rights defined by law and none can take them away. "The leaseholder, being compelled to pay for the land he uses, will protect its forage against extermination by over- stocking. The vegetable covering will [ increase and will more and more conserve the moisture, increasing the moans of irrigation. The law proposes that the !net revenues of the leases shall be held I by the United States in trust for the use i of the states where it is derived, in the storage and distribution of water. Such use of the rentals will be the devotion of an existing public asset to a public pur- i pose of supreme importauce to the arid west, and will render unnecessary the demand that the taxpayers of the whole country be burdened for that purpose by congressional appropriations. "It is intended that the bill shall pro- toot the forage of the public range, get revenue from its use, defend the rights of print freeholders, exclude no exist- ing interest, however small, and shall ac- celerate settlement and tillage by con- Prof. E.

If we had our choice between giving up everything we have in this world anct losing our eyesight, I'm sure we'd give everything aud keep our eyes. The trouble is, we never think of these things until we are brought face to face with them. We all know of people who make a practice of buying "window glass" spectacles because they think it is econ- omy, not knowing they are doing their eyes a great injury until too late. There is just as much difference in spectacle lenses as there is between a glass dish ] that can be bought for ten cents and a i cut glass dish that wouht cost ten dollars Girl with wrinkles 'round her eye, Caused from sun from out the sky, Holds her aching head with doubt Whether glasses take it out. She whose half of life is gone, Still sweetly answering thirty-one, Not so young as the), used to be, Need some aid to make them see. Grandpa, too, we wait for him, His vision now is growing dim. Ago i's no criterion for the wearing of g'Iasses. Many are born with greater de- feels than come with the advance of years. When the need of glasses is act- ually evidenced, the child of ten needs them more than the adult of 80, Ner- vous and muscular strain ~ue to eye de- fects in children act as an impediment to the mental, moral and physical develop- ment. "Know How" Glasses. The "know how" is a great factor in producing anything. The lack of the "know how" fills the world with worth- less imitations. The "know how" is what makes our glasses so desirable. All diseases of the eye correctly diag- nosed. The eye may be compared in a general way with a caniera. The act of seeing was iuvolved in mystery until tha great astronomer, Kospler, first recognized the fa0t that the eye is a camera, and as such is subject to the same physical laws as any other optical instrumeut. Images of external objects are formed by the eye exactly as they are formed by a photographer's apparatus. In the latter they fall upon a sensitive plata and are made permanent by the chemical change induced by light, in the eye they fall up- on the nervous sensitive retina, and their impression is carried to the brain by the fibres of the optic nerve. When we look at a large object of landscape, we see only a small portion of it at a time. In reading it is necessary to move the eye backward and forward along the line of print, for without this movement we could not distinguish more than one long word. It will be readi)y seen that a great deal of work and labor is performed by the eyes,and without proper care and at- tention they will naturally break down, and they it will become necessary 1o wear glasses in order to retain sight. The first symptom of" failing, sight is a de- mand for clearer and better print. Then it is time to seek the advice of an opti- cian, and the sooner this is done the be~ter. cna sDl ts SU66 STnO S.
