(about £20) liad mysteriously disappeared. Immediately the firm sent for an ex part accountant-, and paid him far more than that missing lOOdol. to find out what had happened. The expert accountant went through all the books. Ho checked and counter checked, referred and compared for it solid seven months, and still there was no explanation of the entire disappear ance of that lOOdol. And still the firm were determined to trace it, if it cost them ten times as much. One. day the accountant was trying for tho heaven-knows-whatth time tc detect the error, when his pencil hap pened to touch the figure 'T' of ; certain entry.

THE HUMAN EYE WHAT IT IS, AND HOW TO CARE FOR IT. (Copyright.) II.—Continued from Jan. 7th. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 12 January 1914

THE HUMAN EYE •vtiiat it is, and how to care for it. I (BY A. A. ABOTOMEY.) (Copyright.) II.—Contiuucd from Jan. 7th. Returning to -the front portion of the eye, we find immediately behind the cornea a narrow space, known as the anterior chamber of the eye. This chamber contains the aqueous humor, so c.all(?d from the watery fluid of which it consists. The purpose of the aqueous humor is to -provide a float for the iris, which lies in the midst of it, and so prevent its adhesion to the cornea in front of the crystalline lens behind. If, -from injury or operation, this 'fluid escapes from the eye, it is quickly reproduced, and thus the re quisite rotundity of the ffont portion of the eye is preserved. Suspended in the aqueous is a ring like body, somewhat of the shape of an iron quoit. This is the iris—a word signifying rainbow in both Latin and I Greek—so called because of its various I colors in different persons. It is this I structure which imparts to each eye its characteristic ...
