ABERGAVENNY'S GREAT DAY.  MR. WOMEti. Late of fee Optanetric Institute, London. I IS COMING TO ABERGAVENNY. Famous London Eyesight Expert to visit us. Next week is to be a great week for ABER- GAVENNYâa time which thousands of. townsfolk will remember with gratitude all their lives. MR. WORRELL, the London eyesight specialist, is coming to help them. All his great skill and lffe-long experience, all the remarkable talent and accumulated knowledge that 25 years close study of the science of sight has taught Him is to be placed freely and gladly at the service of every man, woman, or child who seek his aid. What an opportunity What a boon to the thousands of workers upon whose sight depends their daily existence, and who, hitherto obliged to rely upon rough and ready methods, which ire seldom without danger, will now be able to avail themselves of the expert advice, profes- sional skill and experienced guidance that have been within reach of the rich only. Every sufferer from defective vision in Aber- gavenny, every victim to headache, neuralgia, staring, squinting, and the host oi other distress- ing discomforts resulting from defective eye- sight is to be helped to see clearly by this famous man. The great burden of their lives is to be lifted, and instead of groping their way from day to day-losing half the pleasure of life and tunning the risk of serious eye troubleâthey will be made to see once again with all the vigour and distinctiveness of their youth. WHY HE SUCCEEDS. He has travelled the world from end to end- In failing, faulty sight each particular case has to be treated on its meirits, and it is only by de- voting precise, careful study to the vision of every man, woman, and child who have sought his advice that he is able to prescribe the exact nature of lenses that will overcome the defect. If your eyesight cannot, unfortunately, be corrected, he will tell you so, but if your full powers of vision can be restored, J'ou wiD learn, you will learn, by consulting him, how this can be achieved. In the majority of cases expert advice is beyond reach. A visit to London to see a specialist whose fees are reckoned in guineas, is not to be thought of. There is no other way, but the casual choice of what 3eems to be the glasses requiredâglasses that really seem to help the vision, but which in nine cases out of ten -are entirely unstated to the particular defect tor which they are cbosen-aAd which, instead of helping the eyes, too often ruin the eyesight and impair the health and brain nerves as well. This visit to the London specialist about which tnany have dreamed, is no longer necessary. The specialist is coming to them. AD Aberga- yenny is invited to meet hi» and dg their ?dividual cases with him. It is an opportunity few will miss. HEADACHES.  Eighty per cent. of apparently mcurab1t cases I I of headache arc due to defects of the eyesight, and can be permanently overcome by wearing properly fitted glasses. Most people suffering from headache never suspect that their eyes are the source of their trouble., .i,yet it is so, as MR. WORRELL has foundjover^and over again. CHILDREN'S EYES. I MR. WORRELL has given close attention to eye defects in children, and all parents who are in the slightest doubt as to their children's sight should take them to MR. WORRELL and have their eves thoroughly examined. They will be grateful for this forethought in later years. THE GREAT WAR ON HIGH PRICE. MR WORRELL'S services are to cost you nothing For a week MR WORRELL'S Con- sulting Rooms will be thrown open to the public, and he will freely and generously advise and assist all those 4b0 seek his aid His one objertis to prove once and for all, by reason of the enormous business he conducts, that the high fees and inflated charges, which place the expert assistance of the specialist be- yond the reach of the great mass of humanity, can be done away with. SIGHT SPECIALIST IN ABERGAVENNY, I I It is difficult to over-estimate the boon this remarkable man's visit will confer upon the town. It is a recognised fact that over 50 per cent. of the population of our large industrial centres suffer from defective vision in one way or another-and the percentage in Abergavenny is higher than in many large towns. This is, perhaps, inevitable. The close work in the mine, workshop, and office-the training of the eyes over the desk or work-table, fre- quently in a bad lightâresult sooner or laterin an urgent need for glasses. MR. WORRELL can only stay in Aberga- venny for one week. Make a point of visiting him early. The opportunity will hardly occur again. To miss it now may mean a life-long regret, and, perhaps, serious eye trouble. Even if the eyes seem all right, go and consult him. Hundreds of people make a point of doing this, as they know there is no fear of being ad- vised to wear glasses when these are unnecessary, that is, if all is well, they come away satisfied that their eyesight is sound in every respect. t And it costs them nothing. HOURS OF ATTENDANCE 10 to 1, 2 to 7. DAILY (EXCEPT MONDAY). Don't put down this paper until you have fixed in your mind a time to go and see MR. WORRELL. Let him tell you exactly how things are with your eyes. It may cost you nothing in any case, the cost will be much less than is ordinarily charged. MR. WORRELL MAY BE CONSULTED AT THE Y.M.CA.
