A REMARRABLE COINCIDENCE. The owner of a place on Second Ave nue stood in his barn door on the alley the other day, when a man with a wooden leg and a crutch came along and passed the time of day, and said "Say, I want you to do me a small fa vour." "What is it ?" " I want to leave. my wooden leg with you for a few minutes" "Why ?" " I want to go round on Second Avenue and work a house for half a dollar. I'm told the people are very sympathetic. If I go with one leg, you know, I'm sure of it." "Very well, I'll take charge of it for you. . "Five minutes later he rang the door bell of the house inr the avenue, and the door was opened by the man he had left his leg with. "Wha-what 1" he gasped in astonish ment.

DEBTS AND DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
DEBTS AND DuTIEs.-Debts and duties would be nearly synonymous words were it not that custom has associated the word " debt" so closely with money as almost to confine its use to that alone. Every duty is however really a debt-that is, some thing which we owe and ought to pay. It may be money or it may le service, it may be justice or mercy, command or obedience, protection or friendship, reverence or love ; whatever it be that comes to us as an ob ligation to be met, a duty to be performed, is also a debt that is owed, which a health ful conscience will not desire to repudiate. SCANDAL IN THE FAMILY.-One of the most fruitful sources of family quarrel is the habit of " repeating round." A. tells B. something that C. has said or done. B. on his part tells somebody else, with a little embellishment from his own some what lively imagination. This is well talked over and discussed in private by all three, till at last poor C. himself would quite fail to recognise his own thoughtless spee...
ORDER OF THE SONS OF HERMANN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 24 June 1893
ORDER OF THE SONS OF HERMANN, There is in America a society called the Sons of Hermann,.named in honour of Hermann Armin, th?son of Siegmar, the leader of the Cheruscans, who it x;., year 9 A.D. organized and incited the conspiracy and. rebellion against the Romans on the part ot the German people. It was he who enticed the Roman leader Darus with his army of 40,000 men into the regions of the Teutoburger forest, and after defeating the enemy and putting him to flight destroyed all the fortifica tions and roads as far as the Rhine, again making that river the boundary between the Roman and German domains, thus restoring the Germans to liberty and rd moving the yoke under which they had chafed so many years. And thus it comes that the name of Hermann is regarded by the Germazi people and in Germany as that of Wil liam Tell is in Switzerland and George Washington in the United States. On the 20th of July, 1840, ten Germans founded the organization of the Sons of Hermann in the city of...

J3PANESE BATHING. The simple dietary of these people, and especially their abstinence from flesh food, nas muc(h to do wit'- th- it exemption from rheumatism and allied diseases, as well as their frequent use of th" bath. One fact strikes every observer wi-o hs visited Japan : It is the nearly comp ete absence of certabn diseases wh'ic, should I e very cýmmon in stat country, taking li.t) .rnsiderati:u the c'imate and the conditions n which the inhabjitants live. Should we not search for the cause of this immunity from a disease so common among nuropepans ? The Japanese take baths at a temperature which a European could not support.

A POWERFUL EDITORIAL. The writing editor of a certain Cleveland newspaper is a man who is ordin .rily as im pervious to compliments as a stone wall is to bird shot.
