Thiis Life is 1I'htt 11We Mtake It. Let's oftener talk of noble deeds, And rarer of the bad days, And sing about our happy ones, And none about the esad ones. We are not made to fret and sigh. And when gpiuf sleeps to wake it; Bright happiness is standing by This life is what we make it.

The fault's our own if it is not This life is whate?sw'make it:

A Village of Chess Players. flow did Siliiheek. in the Harz, become a chess-playing village?

When he was released, Safter a ion, period, he made a present of board ant chessmen to the viilage, and a fondmess of the game soon spread to every family. Fromn that time the StrObeckers have the right to challenge every nobleman who passes through the village to a game at a table in tihe open air.

Wonderful Fish. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 February 1891
- Wonderful Filt. In an account of some of his travels in Zapan, Sir Edwin Arnold says: As we wend homewards through the picturerque village of Kiga we stop to look again at the wonderful fish in the gardens of a tea-house there. Swimming about in a pool under a little waterfall there are exhibited here hun dreds of variegated carp-the Japanese A?i which are of every imaginable brilliancy of color--purple, russet, citron, saffron, orange. rose-red, gold, and silver. They are tamer than any pigeons, and come voraciously to the bank to be fed. scraml hng for slices ti bean-cake, and putting their gold and brown noses high cut of the water in their struggles to secure the morsel. When a piece of cake falls on the dry rock, near the water, they try to throw themselves on shore, and even use their finS for legs in their eagerneess to obtain the prize.

Good Health. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 February 1891
Good IIcalths. Ono of the best ways to keep in good heabth is not to think or worry too much about it. If you feel strong and well do not imagine that some ineidious diseare may be secretly attacking your constitution. Eat and drink what you desire, as long as it agrees with you. Your stomach knows pretty well what it can digest. Take all the sleep you can get, hot remem ber that the necessary amount varies greatly for different persons. Same must eleep at least nine hours, while others thri-s under six. Only don't rob yourself of what you really need. The " midnight oil" is a ter rible expensive illuminative to burn, either for purposes of labor or study. Avoid sudden changes of temperature. If you cannot avoid them you can guard againet them by always wearing flannel underclothing. Always treat a common cold with great re. epect. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred it will get well anyway; but the hundredth cold ii neglected, may lead to bronchitis, pneumonia or consumption. It is ...

EXCLUSIVELY FOR BACHELORS. ADVICE TO YOUNG MEN WHO WANT TO CREATE A FAVOR ABLE IMPRESSION. Agree with the girl's father in politics and the mother in religion. If you -have a rival, keep an eye on him. If he is a widower, keep two eyes on him. Don't put too much sweet stuff on paper. If you do you will hear it read in after years, when your wife has some special purpose in inflicting upon you the severest punishment known to a married man. Go home at a reasonable hour in the evening. Dont ,vast until a girl has to throw her whole soul into a yawn that she can't cover with both hands. A little thing like this might cause a coolness at the very beginning of the game. If. on the occasion of your first call, the girl upon whom you have set your young affections looks like an iceberg and acts like a cold wave, take your leave early and stay away. Woman in her hour of freeze is uncertain, coy, and hard to please. In cold weather finish saying good night in the house. Don't stretch it all ...

Not Always Idlers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 February 1891
Aot AicwaUs ltler',. People in general have an idea that Turkish women absolutely do nothing that is either useful or ornamental aside from the decoration of their own persons; but that is not altogether true, as my residence of over a year taught me, for they are really dexterous with the needle, and do work whieli is as line as that done by the sisters in the convents or that of the wives of the feldel noblemen of olden times. The favorite pastime of the Turkish women is the bath. which brines toether the wives and slaves of all the well-to-do Turks, and is like a pien;e of school children. These wives, most of them very young-some, indeet, not over twelTe and fourteen years old--take their lunch along, and they eat and steam, plunge and splash, and play pranks upon each other in the wildest glee the whole day long. No fear of an angry husband haunts their minds, they are not t xpeeted to do any thing, and their husbands very rarely enter the harems before six o'clock. I;y this ti...
