the eyes. They depend for their
health and lustre upon the blood
and circulation. At this time the
blood is usually thin and the circu
lation sluggish so that the eyes are
not properly fed or refreshed.
Winds whip against them, irritat..ig
the delicate tissues. Dust is blown
into them, causing further irrita
tion. And the bright sunlight puts
additional strain upon the delicate
eye nerves and muscles, besides
furnishing cause for squint-lines
around the eyes.
Wash your eyes night and morn

eye lotion which you may make
yourself by dissolving boric acid in
boiling water, in the proportion of
one tablespoon to a pint
