EYESIGHT IS OUR GREATEST FACULTY 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 hours-.
