As a matter of pedagogics of school etliciencv. of the pres-
ervation of eyesight, and of general health, the public is vital-
ly interested in having these ocularh deficient and handicapped
children supplied with spectacles. The public school system
therefore justly demands that those children too poor to pro-
cure the scientific refraction required and the skilled fitting of proper
spectacles should furnish such poor children with these helps, absolutely
necessary in order to enable them to carry out the school work required
by the law.
The "accommodation" function of our eves is their power to focus
equally clearly the images of objects at a distance and those near the face.
Its mechanism is the crystalline lens, controlled by the ciliary muscle.
The lens has an innate and spotancous elasticity which gives it the ability
to increase its refractive power required as an object is brought nearer the
eye. This increased refraction is incited by the contraction of the ciliarv
nwiscle. This act is called accommodation. \s has been said, it is little
exercised in myopia, and hence there is little pain or "eyestrain" in purely
mvoptic delects or nearsightednes.- In the «onditiou called emmetropia,
or optical normality (only approximately existing), it is called into use,
and increasingly with even increase of nearness of the object looked at,
until its extreme is reached when the object is so near the eyes that it is
not clearly seen—that is, with accurate focus or clear photographic defini-
Although the medical textbooks give little or no hint of this, it is true,
as thousands of good physicians and patients well know, that headaches,
00 per cent, at least, are due to eyestrain. Mam observant physicians
believe that the so-culled "paroxysmal neuroses," periodic headaches,
migraine, epilepsy, asthma, etc., as well as hysteria, neurasthenia, "brain-
fag." "nervous l-ronkdown," are very frequently caused by years of mor-
bid ocular struggle.
Mental di*caaea follow; weariness alternating with hypercxcitabil-
ity, an amazing narsj of walking, truancy (escaping from ocular labor),
morbid introspecti«c, nameless torments and self-tormentings, diseased
habits, hopelcssnesa. melancholia, manias, incipient and functional in-
sanities, and indirectly occupational failure, crime, and many other errant
trends. . .

By REV. CANON J. W. HORSLEY,
It is more easy to get
g man to leave off drink
than to leave off betting.
I recall a striking con-
fession of the power that
gambling wields over the
life of anyone in its
clutches. It happened
during the time 1 was
prison chaplain at Clerk-
enwell Gaol. I Mas trying to keep a man straight who had been a burglar,
a drunkard, and a gambler. "1 can leave off burgling," he said to me one
day, "I can leave off drink, but 1 can't leave off betting."
The ignoble and unbrotherly desire to make money without giving
anything in return for it is, in my opinion, the chief consideration which
should deter people, and especially young men, from gambling. It is to
my mind immoral for one to take money in that way. This point came
out strikingly in the evidence 1 gave before the royal commission on bet-
ting which was appointed to inquire into the subject some years ago.
When I said that a man had no right to bet, one of the |>ecrs sitting
on the commission remarked that it was too sweeping an assertion, for the
remark did not apply to a man like himself, who could afford to lose.
"That is where you are wrong." [ replied. "You can't afford to lose. With
men in your position it is a case of noblesse oblige. It is for you to set an
example to the people in a lower class of life. You may be able to afford
to lose the money, but you are not able to atVord to lose the influence of
The suffering which falls on the wives and children of married men
who gamble must be seen to be believed. I remember on one occasion
going to two cottages which stood side b\ >ide. The> were both tenanted
by married men. Their wives were in rage and their children half
starved. One of the men was a drunkard, while the other, though quite
sober and always iu work, was perpetually having his resources drained
away through betting. Although he saw the misery to which his wife
and children were reduced, he kept ou, alwa\s Imping against hope that
he would make a coup and recover Kimsell. instead ot pulling up at once,
when his hard work would soon have told and hi would have been
able to extricate his wife, his children, ami him-
self from the terrible condition in which they
Undoubtedly gambling is increasing. You have
only to look at the increased number of betting papers
and compare them with what they were a certain
number of years ago to understand that this is the
case: if they did not succeed they would not be pub-
lished. The way in which betting is invading sport
after sport is terrible, for this is making it well-nigh
impossible for decent people to follow them.
No Arrangements Yet.
The promoters of the Oklahoma
City, Shawnee & El Reno interurban
have as yet math no arrangement*
looking toward securing an entrance
to Shawnee, but It 1b presumed that
the necessary negotiation*! will be tak-
en up before the actual construction
work begins. An official of the Shaw-
nee-Teeumseh Traction Co., was ask-
ed today in regard to the matter, and
stated that he knew nothing of the
p'ans of the interurban people.
