Described. "Pa, what is a pessimist?" "The two first add two last letters of that word generally characterlse him, my son." Sympathy is all right in its place, but it can never take the place of ready money. The neighborly feeling we hear so much about Is usually one of curios Ity and envy. Enjoy present pleasures in such a way as not to injure future ones. Che same people who can deny others everything are famous for re fusing themselves nothing. Glory, ambition, armies, fleets, thrones, crowns--playthings of grown children. Carrie: "Aunt Maria Is always tell ing me that perfect content is not to be found in matrimony. Trying to make me think she remained single from choice. I'll bet she never had a chance." Uncle Harry: "That's where you do Maria an Injustice, Carrie.

The Ranee's Crystal. STORY OF AN ADVENTURE IN BOMBAY. By Clarissa Mackie. John Barclay, a young man prom Iment in New York society and still more prominent in diplomatic circles, had Just completed a most delicate mission which had taken him first to London. where he had met many dis tinguished people in high life; then on to India,. where his task was lii ished. Never having been in that part of the world before, he wandered aorund for some time making himself familiar with the sights and customs of the country. For a week he had been in Bombay, fascinated by tilhe odd streets, beautiful temples, and palaces and the general mysticism of the life of a people so totally different from that experienced in any other part of the world. On the eve before his departure from the city, John Barclay stood on Temple hill, and Bombay seemed very far away that breathless night as he looked to-ward the mystic towers of the city that lay a lfew miles distant.

AT RHEIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
AT RHEIMS. A very interesting description of scenes in the war area is given in "'Harper's Mlagazine" by IMrs. W. K. Vanderbil, under the heading "My Trip to the Front" In one portion of the article there is the following pas sage: "In the morning, after walking around Chalons, we set out for RIheims. I don't know what I had expected to see. I believe I had thought of Rheims as a city empty and desolate, ruinedl-by shell and fire, as are the little villages I had been in near Verdun. But the first impres sion was otherwise. Children ran across the street, a trolley-car stop ped to set down a middle-aged wo mlan, a dilapidated flacre drifted by us, searching for a fare. One felt that there were not enought people about, that there was less life than the streets and houses led one to ex pect but such activity as there was seemed normal, and for many blocks I saw no destruction. "But we passedl very quickly through this part of the city. The cathedral may be said to stand in a sea of r...

A "Varsity and Schools' Unit. A famous general once said: "Eng land's battles are first won on the playing grounds of Eton." That re mark has been justified when we ex amine the glorious traditions of our public and other secondary schools. HIow proudly the younger boys who are ineligible to go to the front them selves talk of their school's honor roll and the numbers of recipients of de corations from the Kng that "our" school has produced. The esprit de corps is still as strong in the hearts o~ the younger boys. but there are. unfortunately a minor few of the old er ones who put their civil ambitions before both their own honor and the honor of the schooL Undoubtedly the missing of an "exam." is a great sacrifice to 4? hard "swotting' stu dent, but what sacrifice is that when it is compared with the deeds of his old-time mates who sacrificed their lives in the cause of humanity on the rugged shores of Gallipoli.

"Oh Life! is all thy song Endure and die?" Four some moments after the words which revealed to Jill her true position had been spoken, she sat so silent and Imotionless that Mrs. Brandemere won dered whether the girl had heard, or completely realised the significance of the information imparted. "You understand me, I suppose?" she asked, looking across at Jill with unconcealed curiosity. . "I understand that I am not your child perfectly well, but I fall to sen why this anomalous situation should continue." MIrs.

WHAT )DO YOU DRIlK IN LODGINGS. HOME STERILISATION OF WA.TER The importancne ot curing a beal thful water supply is increaed during the summer-time. Inhabitants of large cities who are wont to take a vacation in a rural community or a section of the country devoteil to the interest of the lummer toutist are frequently negligent about their own welfare. It is impossible for individ ials to possess information regarding the status of drinking water in every community whose hospitality is. ac ,_epred. Inasmuch as many diseases are dis- I Feminated thorough drinking water which sanitarily is not putable, there are good reasons for viewing unknown water supplies with .suspicion. It is not always. possible to secure stcerilised water, nor is it practicable to insist upon boiling water.

ANIMALS AND WEATHER. LIONS AND TIGERS DETEST THE RAIN. "Yes,," said the keeper at the Zoo, ("August is the month that suits the I majority of the animals in these gar dens. You see, most of them, both birds and beasts, come from warmer countries than England, and so mid summer weather is more like home." "With the large apes, like the orang and the chimpanze. we have constant anxiety; and as you know, a gorilla big and muscular though the beast is, has never survived many months in Europe. They are all subject to pneumonia in our climate, so we have their cages lined with glass. "But the monkey tribe generally like to he warm. On cold days they sit huddled up in shivering hunches, and all their livelineps is gone, There is nothing more miserable than a sick monkey. Even a rainy day makes monkeys miserable. When they see it through a window pouring steadily they clasp their hands over their heads and sit still for hours. "Lions and tigers and all the cat tribe, dread and detest rain....

SOLDIERS' SMILES. HAPPY THOUGH DISABILED. If anyone were to tell you that he knew of a spot in the British Empire to-day where the ilotsam and jetsam of the tides of war are "beached," and where yet great chieerfuilnEes, and still greater philosophy laugh at rpain and irretrievable losse ; where the laughter of the Care-Free sounds loud above the lamentations of the War Broken; and were he to still further tell yoU that the Care-Free and the SWar-Broken are one and the same, would you helieive ? Or would you think that youir informant was test ing yolur credence by a recitation of far fetched fancies ? I think you may came to the latter conclusion, for it just does soundl like a page out Of "Alice in Wonderland," some earthly Valhalla created by the brain of an over imaginative novelist. It is ex istent nevertheless. It is no fancy name. iually it is calldd, "Some body or Other's Hospit:al for Limb less Soldiers and Sailors." I think r far better name for it would be "The Repair Sho...

The Perpetual Puppy. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918
The Perpetual Puppy. An elderly Yorkshireman was sum moned before the magistrates to show cause why he had failed to take out a licence for a terrier. His oft-repeated reply to the questions of the court was, "Why, he's only a puppy!" "Yes, yes, so you say," said the clerk. "But how old Is he really?" "I couldn't tell you a bit,' was the reply. "I never was much good at dates, but he's nobbut a puppy." Evidence proved, however, that the dog was long past puppyhood, and the bench inflicted the usual fine. Talking it over afterwards, the farmer ex claimed, "'Ang me if I can understand it! Last year an' the year afore that I told the sae tale 'bout sae dog, an' it wor allus good enough afore! Who's been meddlin' wi' t' law since last year?"
