THE REASON WHY?
If commercial advertisers, as well as those in the arts or soienoes,
wonld tell the Irntb, tbe pnbllo would be benefitted and no barm done.
Optometiista and Opticians some times make the statement "We
tlrlod Glasses," wbiob is misleadng, oonvsying tbe idea that the meohan
iotl ait of grinding glasses ia a part of tbe qualifications for tbe aolenoe
of refraction or glass fitting. Again in tbe same paragraph oontradiotory
statements appear. "Glasses oorreotly fitted," that require ohanging
every two years." '
We neither grind nor sell glasses we nse them to oure your eye trou
ble. We make yon a present of any style of glass, frame or mounting yon
may seloot. We obarge for onr Medioal Servioe.
