Thousands are wasting nerve en
ergy equal to the amount con
sumed by hard labor, which results
In headache, dizziness, pains In or
about the eye or in the nape of
the neck, twitching or inflamed
eyelids, cross eyes, squinting, etc.
Such sufferers often cannot un
derstand why they should need
glasses so long as they see well.
Those who see best are most apt
to suffer from strain because If
their optical defect Is so great that
the muscles of the eyes cannot
overcome it, they may be perma
nently weakened, and the case be
comes one of poor sight. The or
dinary test by letters is useful for
determining sharpness of vision,
but is useless as a test for eye
strain, the full extent of which can
only be determined by a skilled re
fractlonist, Proper fitting- glasses
are Uie only safe, sane and logical
means of relieving eyestrain.

Round-up Buffalo at Large.
"Letta," the Round-up buffalo cow
that was left a widow recently when
her mate "Buck" succumbed to the
ravages of distemper, is wandering
about somewhere in the south end of
the county as free for the time be
ing as her shaggy ancestors. She es
caped night before last from Round
up Park when someone left the gate
open. Yesterday she was seen on Mc
Kay creek and later In the Coombs
canyon section but this morning T. D.
Taylor and 8. R. Thompson, president
and livestock director respectively of
the Round-up, made a futile search
for her. However they expect to run
across her trail soon.

OAKLAND, Cal., April 14. A num
ber of eastern mlllonalres, lovers of
fine horseflesh, have asked for infor
mation concerning the big horse show
that is to be held in Oakland's new
51.000,000 municipal auditorium in
August, just before the big stadium
meet at the Panama-Pacific expositi
on. They have in most cases already
stated their willingness to participate
In the Oakland show.
The Oakland Stadium Club, which
is behind the movement to give the
horse another chance before the au
tomobile relegates him to the scrap
heap, has appointed committees to
make arrangements for the show. So
ciety leaders, sportsmen and breed
ers are strongly back of it, and it is
more than probable that visitors to
Oakland will have the opportunity to
see the pick of the entire country in
riding and driving horses and pole
The holding of the horse show Is in
line with the plans of the Oakland
Stadium association to establish a per
manent stadium near the big audi
torium. A petition signed by nearlj
10,000 residents In favor of this plan
already is before the city council.

spirit of neutrality by permitting the

received yet from American Ambas

Why Should Your Glasses Be Changed?
The eye is practically developed at 7 years.
Under-development in length means far sight, overde
velopment means near sight; one diameter of the cornea
longer than another means astigmatism.
The attempt to overcome these errors by the accom
modation or focusing power, is eye strain, this power
changes with age, the errors are always the same and
must be corrected with glasses.
Therefore, the only reason why glasses should be
changed is a commercial one. Opticians by giving away
a smattering of medical knowledge as a blind are enabled
to sell glasses at an enormous profit.
