The planet Vcrus i?j so shrotid*?*’ wiiji dense clouds that astJouomerE are unable to study its surface. About twelve years ago the first moving picture machine was exhibited before the public. Since then they have been improved and their number increased until the cii eniatograph has now become the central feature in a busines.s extending all over the world and involving investments of many millions of dollars. While tlie cinematograph was de vised solely to amuse, time has wid ened its scope until it now seems likely to become of inealcuable value to education, science and art. The day is near when every public school and similar institution wil! be equipped with a moving picture ma- \ chine. Kven now they are no small j factor in the education of the public. The moving picture is to our eyes wltat tho telephone is to our ears. The individual iu good health with normal eyes—that is. both emmetro pic and orthophoric. will not suffer much, if any. at the moving picture show, provided it is not visited to ex cess. The majority of persons with normal eyes can endure four sittings of thirty minutes each per week with but little or no temporary unpleasant symptoms and no permanent ill effect. There is practically no difference in the effect on ryes naturally normal or thoso made normal with properly fit ted Rhisses excepting in those where reflex conditions caused by eye strain have not had sufficient time to become normal. There is no evidence to show that "movies" aVe iniporiling the si^ht of the nation. Careful investigation leads to the oppo.-^ite conclusion. In directly they are good things for the eyes of the peojile, and in this way: Latent eyn deieets that would ordin arily worry ^nd a«inoy for years from common usage are localizod and irri tated by tho picturos in a very short time until tho individual is led to seek releif. This takes him to the optometrist and hf' gets his optical correction, together with eye safety and comfort for the fiiture. Many i>or- son.s now wear glasses who had hard ly thought (jf their eyes, maeh less of glasses, until they h*cam‘ patrons of the movies, bocanso these visits re vealed hidden defects. Without any doubt the moving pic. ture is a relentless sleutli when it goes searcliiiig for eye aches or pains. It has a seareli warrant tiiat permits I it to try every nerve tost every muscle. exi)lore every part of the ot »i- lar system, both mechanical ami phy sical. and if it doesn’t uni-over trouble. , none that will cause discomfort exists. For scientific discussion of the I'f- fect of moving picture on the eye.s, I we must also include th(* cause of the moving picture on the eyes, we must also include the {iiuse of the effect. As Shakespeare says; I “Find out the cause of this effect, I or rather say. the cause of this defect, for this effet defective comes by cause.” ! Cau^je of ocular disturbance from i viewing moving; pictures may be sub divided under two heads, viz.: Me chanical and physical. I Mechanical causes are: ; 1. Glare. 2. Light Vibration. 3. I Illumination with which may be in- oludtd abs«>nce of color. 4. Faulty or defective films. 5. Cnskilled or I careless operators handling the ma- I chinos. Physical causes are: 1. Muscular anomalies. 2. Errors of refraction. 3- Nerve disorders or disease. Recent improvements ^nd greater care have almost entirely eliminated the mechanical in the better picture houses, so that about the only remaining mechanical causes that could at all prove deterimental to eyesight is that of glare, and the ab sence of natural colors, w'hich latter w’ill doubtless soon be remedied with color films. It may thus be readily seen that the only harmful results iu viewing ihe movies is found in defective vision, or uncorrected eye defects, which optom etry can remedy with proper lenses. Errors of refraction exception pos sible simple myopia .cause most of the trouble, the amount depending on the nature of the defects and the tem perament of the individual. The symptoms in these cases are about the same as those resulting from con tinued close application of the eyes in ordinary work. So you may be quite certain that when your eyes tiouble in viewing moving pictures, it is due, not to the pictures, but to defective eyes which call for optometry’s aid. Nervous diseases and nerve affec'- tions, functional in character are usu ally aggravated, of course reflexly, by the moving picture. When this oc curs one should cease visits to the movies until synptoms disappear. From the publicity department of one of the large accident Insurance companies of America cemes the fol- low^ing warning to automobile owners, which is rather to the point in that the insurance company tells what the company suffered by having to pay i claims for the lives of the careless parties. It precedes the review of the claims paid with some advice for the garage as follows; “Don't run your engine in the gar age with the doprs and windows clos ed. ‘Tt is death to do this. “Exhaust gases from gasoline en gines contain carl»on monoxide In DANGIOUOrS QUANTITIES. "One fifth of one per cent carbon monoxide in the air will produce FA TAL IlESTTLTS. "Not one person in one hundred knows the danger. “Spread this w^arning for the saving of human life.” Then the company explains the casos upon which it had paid claims as fol lows: A lawyer in Sioux Falls. South Da kota. had taken his family to a theater but Instead of taking them him took the car to a garage to have the lights repaired. Later in tho night the fam ily saw the lights burning in their own shed but thought nothing oZ ft. The next morning they made an Inves tigation and found the lawyer dead be- sido the car. A forty foot launch containing a three cylinder engine was owned by a real estate dealer in Bellingham. Wash ington. In the expectation of laying the boat up for the winter he was working on the engine indoors and was suddenly overcome by the gas from the exhaust and died in a few moments. While trying to put a now license tag on his automobile an assistant to a railroad president in Piiiladelphla WPS overcome by gas and died. Damascus an Ancient City.

There is no prospect oi priccs going down for some time after the war is over. Go ^lead and let your contracts. When it comes to the roof you can make a real saving, and get a better roof by specifying Certain-teed Roofing CERTAIN-TEED is not chcapcr bccau::c the qr.^Hty is lower, but because it is a less cxpc:iaive roofing to mnr.iifacturc. It is better, not only because it is chcapcr, but aho bccausc it is light weight, weather-tight, clcan, sanitary, f:rc-rctr^da::t and costa practically nothing to maintain. It is nov/ rccofxnized as the preferable type of roofinci for cfllce buildi.ngs, factories, hotels, stores, warehouscij, farm buildings etc., where durability is necessary. CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for 5,10 or 15 years, accord- ing to thickness (1, 2 or 3 ply). There are many roll roofings on the market, but only one CERTAIN-TEED. It pays to get the best. It costs no more to hy a CERTAIN-TEED roof than it does to lay a poor roof, but there is a vast difference in the wear. You can’t tell the quality of a roofing by looks or feel. Your only safety is the label. Be sure that it is CERTAIN-TEED—then you arc ctrtain of quality and guaranteed satisfaction. Certain~teed Slate-Surfaced Asphalt Shini^les are supplanting wood and elate s'lingles for residences. Tl cy cost iess, are just as good looking, vjcar better, won’t fall oil, buckl: cr split. They arc iir«>rctatdant, and do not have to be painted or staincJ. Certain~tecd Paints and Vamishea are the best quality paint materials, ground and mixed with mechanical ac curacy.
