The first meeting which was a highly successful one with representatives of the state Highway department present was the last one no Call being issued subsequently for a convention.

The of town everyone of whom is an advocate of Good roads Are showing interest in the matter. These gentlemen for some time past have been in favor of forming an a automobile club a a for the sole purpose of remedying some abuses that occur in Road construction.

Patten entitled a some conditions that influence Progress of a child from Tho standpoint of the the paper was a most excellent one on a subject that has probably been Given too Little attention in the past. The subject resolved itself into two divisions first As a diseases of the Eye a and second a abnormal the diseases Aud defects of the Eye the speaker said Are common enough among school children hut Are too often ignored by Parent Aud teacher. To fail to recognize their significance and to what extent they Are preventing Tho children from accomplishing the things we so much desire and expect of them while at Tho same time school duties Are made laborious that under More favourable conditions would be quite easy and enjoy Able. Under the head of diseases of the eyes or. Patten dwelt upon Tho various forms of a conjunctivitis Quot. The simple form of this disease is an inflammatory state of the conjunctiva or that thin transparent membrane covering the eyeball and acting As inside lining to the Eye lid. The disease is characterized by congestion loss in transparency of the membrane some dread of Light usually being present along with the twitching of Tho lids and a discharge sufficiently great to glue the lids in the morning. The cause of this form is made Veid ent by observing certain types such As May be termed a associated conjunctivitis As seen in eczema facial Erysipelas and nasal Catarrh As Well As another Type known As a conjunctivitis a a which accompanies or follows As the Case May be measles Scarlet fever whooping cough and the like. Quot it a a my a Nav buium in our attention a great Deal this Winter due to the More or less prevalence of the above named diseases. The effect on the vision of the child is about the same As that produced by looking through a dirty Glass. The result must be evident an overworking Aud Strain aug of the Eye which is made Manifest by Tho child s report at school. The second form of Tho Disen May be termed a acute contagious conjunctivitis a or More commonly known As a pinkeye. A a in this form we have the same conditions a in simple conjunctivitis with tie a coition that the symptoms Are mor. Severo and that the discharge from t a a a Eves contains a specific Bacillus or a i. Making it a markedly cont Agim in jury to the child Svi. A is a on greater than in the form variety. It Lias a tendency to repeat itself and by these repeated attacks More or less permanent damage is done. The third Aud final form of conjunctivitis is one designated As a granular conjunctivitis Quot or the form known better As a granulated in this variety the of the conjunctiva causes the membrane to lose its smooth surface owing to the formation of rounded granulation which leaves Tho scan like changes on the Eye lid at first producing a sensation like saw dust in the Eye. The damage to the Structure and especially the lid of the Eye is greater in this form than in those previously motioned. Often As an effect the Eye lids Are drawn away losing their proper relation to the Eye. Under the head of a abnormal refraction is included a far sightedness a a a near sightedness a a and a a astigmatism. A a All these Are very common but Are often not discovered by the Parent. The Pupil at school is unable to see figures on the blackboard and thus at a late Day the defect of the Eye May be discovered. The Strain on the child s eyes is apparent in the slow Progress made in studies. Or. Patten urged that parents he More attentive to their children in relation to the Eye. He suggested that school children he periodically subjected to an examination to determine whether there Are any among then whose eyes need treatment. Were wedded. Brittain Harris of Buckhorn.
