Do Not Marry an Unamiable Per son. This advice holds good for both boys ami girls—young ladies and young gen tleman—men and women. It is all very well to talk about love as the foundation of matrimony. No body believes in that doctrine more fully than we do; nobody advocates it more strongly; but it does not follow, necessa rily, that because you are in love you stouid marry; and whoever marries an v.r.amiabie person is self-doomed to a life of misery. No human life is going to be without causes of provocation and irritation. They are innumerable; they f.re almost constant. One is lucky if, noi a year or j a month, but a week, or a day, even, } asses without thetn. And it is no test of amiability to be j;ood natured in the few and rare mo ments of serenity when all human troubles seem to have subsided. It is "Ike the amiability of a well-fed pig. It is the man who, when troubled himself, can preserve a calm and cheerful exteri or to cheer those around him; who, when oppressed by car...

Spoiling Women's Names. The Sun says that many, if not a ma jority, of the names of the eight or nine hundred girls from the public schools, ■who have been examined for admission to the New York Normal College, give the impression that they belong to mere household pets rather than to young women who are approaching maturity, and who are engaged in serious work. These girls apparently prefer the nick names by which they are known in the family circle and to intimate friends to those with which they were christened and therefore take pains to adopt them in their signatures. In so doing, the public school girls are not exceptional among our young wom en, for it is quite the fashion nowadays for them to grow so enamored of their nursery appellations that they cling to them as their fixed and proper names. They may even be offended when they arc addressed by their correct names, •which they imagine are less pretty than these pet diminutives ; and some grave, grown-up women will put Hatt...

Life Among the Arabs, Fed by the eterpal snows of the At las, the Oued Draa river gives to one of the most charming oases of the Sahara, with a circumference of 10 miles and a population of 250,000. We are now near the borders of the Great Desert, as it is called. This is not such a desert as is pictured by the imagination of the civilized American—sands, and nothing but sand to the end of the chapter. The desert is, in reality, composed of immense plains analogous to the steppes of Russia, the pampas of South America, or the Great American Desert of our Western plains. There is no wood; the water is confined to a few favored spots, which necessarily become the halting places of travelers, such as the great oasis of Tronlatt. Eveu in the Sahara it is only where running water is pres ent that luxuriant vegetation and pro ductive fruit trees spring forth. Some of the smaller oases are pocket editions of Paradise. After traveling all day over a dry and almost barren country with only p...

"VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AN D COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. A Few Snake Stones. "Do you want some items about snakes ?" asked an agricultural-looking gentleman of the city editor the other day. " If they are fresh and true," respond ed the city editor. " Exactly," replied the farmer. "These items are both. Nobody knows 'em but me. I got a farm down on the island a piece, and there's lots of snakes on to it. Near the house is a pond six feet deep. A week ago mv little girl jumped into the pond, and would have drowned if it hadn't been for a snake. The snake seen her and went for her and brought her ashore. The particular point about this item is the way he did it" "How was it ?" asked the city editor. "It was a black snake, about 30 feet long, and he just coiled the middle of himself around her neck so she couldn't swallow any water, and swam ashore, with his head and tail. Is that a good item ?"

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Middy Morgan, a New York Mar ket Reporter A woman can do things one would least expect a woman to accomplish, if she sets her head to it. It was my hap piness lust Summer to see a lady in New VorK City who has succeeded nobly in a career few women would adopt from choice. Her story reads very much like a ro mance. * One day, near twenty years ago it must have been, a lady landed from a ship in New York harbor. She had come from over the sea to make her for tune in the United States. When she left the ship she had a sixpence, and no more, in her pocket. She dropped it into the seamen's charity fund. The lady had letters to influential persons in New York, and recommendations of the highest order from Ilis Majesty, Victor Emmanuel, King of Italy. One of the gentlemen to whom she j had a letter was Horace Greeley. She i . was admitted to his private office, and | presented her note...

Joseph Bonaparte. Joseph Bonaparte was known in this country as the Count de Survelliers, taking his title from the name of one of his estates in France. It was in ISIG that he bought the property about Bor dentown, N. J., one tract of whi'h is now knowji as Bonanarte Park. Evi dently he came to this country with full pockets. Jt is within the memory of living witnesses how he made the money Hv during his fifteen or sixteen > ears' residence at Bordentown —the elegance of Ilia furniture and surroundings, the | abundance of costly wines, the splendor j of the banquets he was constantly giv ing to distinguished personages, his fine equipages, his magnificent collection of costly pictures and statuary, the exten sive improvements he made to his lands and the large retinue of servants he al ways kept on hand in addition to the extensive foree of laborers he had con stantly employed on his grounds.

Housekeeping. One of the most diflicult and also one ■ of the most necessary lessons tor ajhouse keepar to learn is that in order to be successful she must assert her individu ality; it is usoleis to try to please every lad}'. It is surprising to notice how many things in our homes are done di rectly with "an eye singta" to our neigh bors. In housekeeping, as in religion, endeavor to have a reason for the faith that is in you, and then go ahead. Study work and your own. strength, do the best you can, and be content with that; learn to be willing to be condemn ed for your ways of doing providing that they are right. To be independent is a great virtue; not only in matters of taste, in decoration and the choice of furniture, but in all that pertains to the welfare of the household, in the. hours for meals, in the hours for sleeping and waking. If the smoke does rise from a ! neighbor's chimney one or two hours earlier or later than from your own, do not regard that as an infallible in...
