THE JAPANESE SOLDIER. The vast influence which a victori ous army has upon the decision o£ fu ture battles is referred to by Mr. Stan ley Washburn in his book, "Nogi," which is a well-writen appreciation of the great Japanese soldier "To the privates of the Siberian steppes and the peasants drafted from the valleys of the Volga and the far off Neva this man Nogi was the in carnation of fury, the demon of war. His men were pictured by camp fires at night as fiends of blood and fury, who would stop at nothing, who eag erly sought death in their efforts to reach a hand-to-hand encounter with their foes. Again and again the story of Two Hundred and Three Meter Hill, where the Japanese sacrificed fifteen thousand men in order to gain an ob servation station, was told in the Rus sian ranks. The soldiers told one an other also how the Japanese infantry in one assault, exhausted and ammuni tion spent, refused to retreat, and remained and threw stones at their enemies until the last man was ...

I was looking through my husband's desk this afternoon, and found some of the queerest tickets you ever saw. One was marked 'Mudhorse, 8 to 1,' an other was marked "Getaway, 10 to 1,' and so on like that. Whatever do you suppose they refer to?" "That's an easy one, Mrs. Brown," was the smooth rejoinder of Green. "Your husband is probably making a study of archaeology." "Archaeology!" was the wondering rejoinder of Mrs. Brown. "Do you really think so? How very interest ing!" "Yes," responded Brother Green, "those queer-looking tickets you found are undoubtedly relics of a. lost race."

He lives at Corbeil, about twenty miles from Paris, and visits Paris several times a week.

Still dazed with sleep, he got into the wrong train-a non-stop express for Paris-promptly settled down to slum ber again, and only awoke when he reached Paris. He was just in time to catch the last train back to Cor beil. He fell asleep again, and the train reached Corbeil and was shunt ed to a siding for the night. Still the man slept on.

THE TRAITRESS. She Took a Hand in the Game of Conspiracy, but the Love-God Held Trumps. "Dear Sir,-I am in rei'.eipt of yours of the 14th inst.-" Roger Stradbroke-Stvadbroke's is one of the largest 6tores in London paused as he paced his office, drew fiercely at his cigar, and waited till Zoo Ellingliam glanced up from her shorthand notes. "You inquisitive, Miss Ellingham?" he queried. "I hope not, Mr. Stradbroke," she said, smiling. "Why do you ask me?" "Ever heard a rumor that it was with in the bounds of possibility that I'd buy Harleston's?" She opened her eyes. "Buy Harleson's?" she repeated. "That would be the biggest thing you have ever done."

Holds Out Well. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
Holds Out Well. At a club meeting held in a public house} in a small village a discussion took place as to whether a hard or soft substance would last the longer. The debate continued for some time, until one man spoke up, and said: "Now, men, you are all mistaken, as I can easily prove. When me and my wife married she had as good a set of teeth as any woman could have; now she hasn't got one, and her ton gue is as good as ever." The only person you have a right to judge and condemn is yourself, and if we keep a sharp eye on ourselves we shall probably find so many things needing to be remedied that we shall have no time to go about passing judgment on our neighbors. In 1850 only one woman worked for wages to every ten men; now the ra , tlon is one woman to four men.
