Next month the little ones will k starting off to
school again to continue their education, and parents
should remember that success or failure-depends
largely upon the condition' of the eyes. All children
should have their eyes examined before entering
school and now is the time to attend to it. Great in
justice is done to many children by accusing them of
obstinacy, inattention and stupidity, when, as ma:
ter of fact, they are only victims of physical defects
of sight. . Such children, with the proper ad justment
of glasses, often become the brightest of scholars.
