lias been the noetic of n remarkable
tragedy. The cattle la n military bar-
rack tilled with Infantry. The tortuous
road down to the tea la bordered by
cabins Inhabited by the families of vet-
erans. The tragedy occurred on tho
night of Hauler Sunday about 0 o'clock
A lot of ricdmonteoe and I.ombnnly
soldiers began to chatl n Calabreto cor-
poral Jeering at his country mimicking
his iiatols and tantalizing hlni In every
way. A sergeant Interfered and drovo
tho soldiers to bed. An hour afterward
one galratore Mlsdea a Calabrlan sol-
dier of the Nineteenth Infantry stole
quietly from bed took his gun and n
hundred rounds of cartridges and sta-
tioned himself at the door of tho bar-
racks. Ho piled the cartridges on a
bench loaded his musket and kneeling
down began to tire upon every l'leu-
montese and Lombard soldier. The
llrst shot brought down tho ser-
geant who had stopped the warfare of
words. He tired as rapidly as possible
every shot either killing or wounding
a comrade. The steeping regiment was
aroused. As fast as tue soldiers sprang
from their beds they were shot down.
mo regimcni was nanto-stricKen. 'l no
graduates who rushed for the door and
tried to corral the human tiger were shot
dead. Tho remainder of the soldiers
sought shelter In their rooms. Mlsdea
then entered the rooms one afrer the
other killing nnd wounding all but the
Calabrcsc. From tho windows of each
room he would shoot down the soldiers
outside. In one room half a dozen sol-
diers had crowded under their beds.

nlzod by the oeulUt all n quiring different treatment In order to euro them and restore a-ood
vision. Yet nothltiu; show tho folly of goinir totliu jrcnoral physician for treatment of this
onfaii thau tho fact that he bo only suiUttostly studied this complicated organ sufflcicntly
to rccoffnlze from three to a down It 1 in thl and tho careful application of properly selected
remedies to tbo and the different affection of t he eyo that the superiority and the tuoue' of
the Oculist consist.
Nearly alt the disease of the eye arecurable even In the severe form If clearly understood
aud properly treated and attended to In tno earlier Btairc before It has had time to detroy or
Injuro permanently the vision Hut those cose that ibow blemishes and defect of vision and
blind i km so frequently! are case in which there ha been dotav tn seeking an Oculist and
valuable time wo wasted by trjlnif some domesttu remedies or what I pearly a bad. trying
tho ordinary physician.
I do not moan by my remarks above to oondoma or criticise the general practitioner for
treating Catarrh or dlseascsof tbo Uvo or Kor that occur in his practloe. It I hi duty to give
relief to all who aro suffertntr In anv and every w av possible and no doubt all do the best tbey
can. IluttDcy will all honeatlvoonfos that tbev have not tbomeans. In the shape ot selected
rcmodleo Instruments nor tho time to acquire the skill and prantloa to do Justice to these
What I do want et erybody to understand is that there are a class of specially instructed and
experienced doctor men wbo bavedovoted money tlmoand study to these particular part
of tbo hi' man body In order to acqulro tho greatest amount of skill lu treating Its affection
and disease: and people who are suffering with any diseaso in theeo orxan wilt a far as
possible i ecover the best and fullest use of those organ who seek tbo specialist tba earliest;
and the physician will deal bonestly wltb bl patron wbo give them such advice.
I see In thl country many case or Strabismus ("crooked eyes" they are generally teraied)
which b) a dofect in appearanoo uncertain vision and weaken IU Nearly every one of these
case can bo completely cured and soiao of them without any operation. Children should
never start to school without having thl remedied.
Kyelldthat turn out showing tbo iasldo or those that turn In and Irritate the eye-ball can
all be perfectly cured. Artificial eye can be fitted and worn without any palu and to look
perfectly natural. I have a largo itock of them always ou band.
