The State bank of Swea City had issued just 5,000 drafts since it started March 1, 189S. when the writer called for a couple of small ones last Thursday, so that we got the first one issued to which the cashier did not have to attach a revenue stamp. The new drafts have the stamp printed thereon, so that it is cancelled in issuing the draft. Five thousand drafts in less than 14 months is doing a pretty big business, let us tell you. Whlltemore Champion. Herman Rantzow has put in a patent shaker for manufacturing milk shakes or lemonade. It's a dandy and so is the cool drink he makes with the machine. Miss Julia D. Beck and David B. Crawford were married at Emmetsburg yesterday.

It arose out of that Plurnley homestead near Corwith, which bus been prolific of litigation. When Plumley died one Roe of C'or- willi went to work to buy out the heirs and claimant:; mid pnid Charley Plumley SI.200 for bis interest as "heir at law. :> He insisted on this particular feature, his theory being- that Charley would inherit us legal heir and not as legatee under tbe will, which it was thought would not stand. But the will «-;is riisliiiiieil by tbe court and Charley got bis interest under the will, and not as heir-at-law. Now Roe sues Plumley for his interest us legatee.

Optician Joseph Silko, The Eye as an Optical Instrument. The eyo is the most wonderful of all the organs of sense. The organs O f touch taste, and smell, to perform their functions must be placed in actual contact with the substances that excito their activity; but the eye is equally sensitive to the impressions of litfht, whether it comes from an object close at hand or from'thi immeasurably lixed stars. But it is with the eye as an optical instrument that we and you are concerned As such it will be best understood by comparing with a camera, of which it is the prototype. Images of external objects are formed in the eye exactly as they aru formed on the focusing screen of a photographer's camera. The light pHSsei into the eyeball through the pupil which is simply an aperture in tho center o the iris or colored portion of the eye, the solo function of the opening beiti"- ad mission of light. It is suggestive of popular ignorance of the oyu that we some' times hear the expression, " he had his pupil taken out," which is just as ab surd as to say, " the door had the keyhole taken out." Tho retina, which receives the image and corresponds to tho sensativu plate in the camera, is a layer of highly sensitive norve tissue at tho back of the eyeball. This tissue is really the terminal, filmy spreading out of tho optical nerve which extends from the brain to the back of the aye. This nerve is the modiurr of communication between the retimi and the brain, conveying to tho latter accurate information as to thu image formed on tha former. It is, consequently the brain that sees, the eyo being merely its instrument ol vision. The norma eyo may, consequently, be defined as au optical apparatus of such a form that parallel rays of light—that is rays proceeding from a distance of 20 foot or moro —are precisely focused on tho retina without any effort on the part of tho ovo thus imprinting on this sensitive membrane a sharply defined imatfe of ali objects from which these rays eminate. Very few eyes, however, are so perfect as to fit tho abovo definition and in many eyes seemingly perfect it is due to tho rausclos of tho oyo that correct images are formed on the retina. When tho imperfection in slight thu extra muscular effort necessary may be bourn without discomfort, but when tho rava focus too far back or too far in front of tho rotina, tho tnuboloH are unequal to the task of rectification, and imperfect vision, with painful oyo Btrain Is tho result. Could we move the retina backward or forward wo could ctially rerm-dv such imperfections; but this cannot be done, and bunco It in Incumbent on ua to change by mechanical means the direction of tho myw of light which cntor thu eye. This the optician can accomplish with ground glanh lurmufj of various klnda :F»©-w I'eotlrxxozilal©. • EMMETSBUBG, Iowa, May 20, 1898,-My ll-year-old *on iiwj hlsoyos seriously affected from an injury to the head received ihw, your* *»«o. f( f , ,. ou |d SK . vjiit little with the injured eye, and tho other wm from ih>, strain o/atud and work.
