EYESIGHT IS OUR
We can "ill spare any of the fa
culties with whjph we are endowed.
But of the five senses we can least
afford to lose that of eyesight; which
after all, is but another way of saying
that vision is our most precious gift.
Many people of today are inflict
ing grave injury upon their sight,
simply because they do not under
stand it until too late. Neglect is
robbing them of good vision. The
moment your eyes give you the slight
est concern, the least cause for alarm
?Consult Dr. Masrow, Norfolk's fore
moat eyesight specialist, and let him
give your eyes a scientific examina
tion. He enjoys by far the largest
patronage, and hia lifetime experie
nce assures immediate and lasting
relief and satisfaction. Dr. Masrow's
office is in the Dickson Building, cor
ner of Granby and Tasewell streets
Hia charges for glaases are within
easy reach of every body. Office
