THE HUMAN EYE WHAT IT IS, AND HOW TO CARE FOR IT. (Copyright.) INTRODUCTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 7 January 1914
THE HUMAN EYE WHAT IT IS, AND HOW TO CARE FOR IT. (BY A. A. ABOTOMEY.) (Copyright.) INTRODUCTORY. In presenting to readers this essay on the human eye it would be well at the outset to make a few preliminary remarks by way of introduction. If it were necessary to justify the appea rance of such an essay, then it need only be observed that a dissertation, involving a question of such supreme consequence to the liuman race, as the power of sight, must, in the nature of things, 'prove of more than ordinary interest. Sight is justly regarded as fhe greatest of our senses, ranking in value next to life itself. It plays a highly important part in our daily ex perience, contributing immeasurably to oar happiness, usefulness, effici ency, and tlie enjoyment of life, as sentient beings. In view of the fact, then, that sight is such a priceless gift to us. one would naturally suppose that the people generally -would manifest an eager de sire to "know a great deal about the function itself, an...

At the Castlemaine Hospital, of which he had been an inmate for some ten days, Mr. John Dower, proprietor &nbsp; of the "Newstead Echo," died yester- day morning at about ten o'clock. He &nbsp; had been admitted to the hospital suf- &nbsp; fering from gall-stone, and the neces- sary operation was accomplished some days ago. Mr. Dower came through the ordeal well, and on Sunday night ap- peared to be making such a splendid recovery that he was able to write "copy" for his paper, which was to have been published yesterday. How- ever, on Monday night he became bad once more, and, gradually getting worse, passed away at the hour nam- ed. The late Mr Dower was 50 years of age.
