Speaking Eyes
"Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes"
was not said of aching, blinking members. Get glasses if
you have this sensation: that strained, peering, unpleasant
appearance of the eyes will be dispelled and an amount of
comfort enjoyed you had no experience of before. You
will see better, feel better, and your appearance will be
greatly improved. No charge for eye examinations and
charges for glasses moderate.

45 AN OLD SAYING PUT INTO RHYME
From carpet hammer to giant sledge,
That rends the rocks on mountain ledge,
The tiny hand-axe and the great two-
edge
That fell the forest and shape the hedge.
From the great iron pail that's galvanized
To the workman's can that's so despised,
The facts are here without disguise,
And recognized by those that's wise.
That when you start to build a house,
Be it for man or little mouse,
The list of tools and nails galore
Are always got of SIDNEY SHORE.
Hang your doors with proper hinge.
Then they'll work without a twinge.
The springs and locks for massive doors,
Work true when bought at SIDNEY
SHORE'S.
