"What kind of wine is preferred?" "The pure juice of the grape, frco from alcohol, » demanded. Dry wine, which hits about 11 per cent of alcohol, also is sold for the church.

Sweet wino has at, least M percent, of alcohol, yet it is often sold for sacramental purposes. Fact is, the sweet wine is always the favorite until its alcoholic percentage is discovered.

Amiiiii tiim y»»i»im IL'tll'tt I'l-f-IM. I The barbarians who conquered Home had very primitive modes of marking tho course of time. At the break of day, when tho ehioftain of the cam]) or village rose, a boy slave came and took hi*position at the entrance of the hut, and sat there with two helmets, one full of pebbles and the other empty, before him. His business was to transfer the pebbles, one by one, from the first helmet to tho second, and not too last, after which he .surrendered the position to BOrne one else, who repeated the OPperation, and so on until it became ! dusk. As the helmeU were largo and | tho pebbles small it took a good two ! hours to make the transfer. As soon as the helmet had been emptied, the fact was proclaimed through tho camp by tho striking of A sword , against a shield, gong-fashion, at tho chieftain's door. The echo was caught i up, and all around tho people knew that ' their dinner-time had come.

THE NECESSITY OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 19 March 1885
THE NECESSITY OF LABOR. There is no condition of life, and no time in the allotted term of human existence, when the individual can say. "My ta»l&lt; is accomplished; licro I will rest from my labors." No matter what he may have accumulated in material, no matter what his contributions to the accumulations of the world or to the general benefit of the human race, he cannot rest from his labors. Tt il ii"t cf 10 much interest to the world what .". man has done, it is, what is he doing! What can he '!■&gt;? The noblest steed in advance, the leader of a hundred fights, if he but. halts in the charge, is overthrown and trampled in the dust by the baser herd which follows. This is. beautifully expressed in Shakespeare's "Troilus and Cressida,"' where Ulyses strives to ronse the dormant energies of Achilles, who complains of the preferment of less able leaders than himself. It will pay any one of our readers to turn to Shakespeare and read from the play above mentioned the...
