Il'est J?dlia Carrtiers. The creole /orkause, or female carrier of the West Inuies, furnishes a remarkable proof that great physical energy and en durance can exist in the tropics. At a very early age, perhaps at five years, she learns to carry small articles upon, her head, a bowl of rice, or even an orange on a plate, and at nine or ten she is able to carry a basket or trail a wooden tray with deep, sloping sides containing twenty or thirty pounds. Then she walks barefoot beside her mother, twelve or fifteen miles a day. At sixteen, she is a tall, robust girl, and carries a burden of one hundred and twenty or one hundred and fifty pounds weight. She now earns about six dollars a month, by walking fifty'miles a day, as an itinerent seller.

thg cat, th ill so incre: in numbers as to ltbeestme 1 positive nuisnce. Did you ever watch a cricket closely? Sometitmes you may see one walking along the kitchen table, in search of a crumb. Look closely at him,nttr:you will find that he is a pale brown creature, with a horny head, from the front of-which issue two long and slender feelers, which he constantly waves to and fro. His back is covered with two pairs of deli cate wings; and he has six legs, the hinder pair of which are enormously large compared with the others. These are his leaping legs, and they are the striking feature of the whole family. When the cricket was a young fellow, he had no wings, and had to make his way in the world entirely upon foot. A btlterlly or tlloth, you know,conmmences life as a caterpillar,then becomes a chrysalis, and finally turns into the perfect winged in sect. In tlhe grasshopper family the caterpillar stage is represented by the hopper without wings. \hien the wings are full grown le can...

A GLIMPSE OF CHINA, Nellie Hopps Howard. The inland sa l A scene indescribably beautiful. One long, delightful picture, full of radiant colodring. Standing on the deck of the steamer we enjoy to the utmost the ever-changing lovely hits of nature, for we are ru:nning along in close proximity to the coast. We plough through water deeply blue and clear, which changes to emerald green near the shore ani laps the long white stretch of beach. Verdanut islands are scat tered about on either side, wonderfully green from base to hntmmit,and rich in cultivation. Sli.epy looking i;lages cluster here and thlee; quaint fishing junks, with their picturesque sails and dragon-head bows so like the old-time cuts which fascinated us in chlihihiood-andl over all the clear cohalt-blue of the sky.

A HOLIDAY LETTER. The many friends of Mr. Frederick Thomas HI-ickford, B.A., will be pleased to learn that he is taking a brief respite from study, and enjoying a very pleasant holiday midst all the enervating surroundings of \Varrnam bool. In a letter written to a friend on Wednesday last he says: "I am getting quite bronzed and tanned here with exposure to sun and sea. My father, who returns to-morrow, and myself have spent many pleasant days fishing on the Hopkins, with varying success.

Do Not Fret. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 14 January 1891

Do Not Frct. Anyone who expects to get through life without a certain share of botheration, is un-,hr a very scrious mistake.

Fretting does not pay. To the contrary, it is always practised at a loss of time, it rcngth and temper, ending in a great loss of happiness.

Thi " monster, while still a young girl, by some means or other became possessed of the recipe for a mixture of which from four to, debt drops were fatal. This liquid, which lies become known under the name of 11 Tofana Water," has been:described as clear, taste. f less, colorless and odorless. It was of such a nature that it bafllled the cleverest medical men of the time, and the s:utest analysts were utterly unable to testify to its presence in the organs of one of its victims, after the most searching pOSt m',tresa examina-. tion.

Lily Cotham, a dissipated looking woman of 30, with a mild eye and a weak voice, faced the court, charged with having no lawful visible means of support. " What have you to say," quoth the sergeant, and the fair one whimpered forth that the charge was wrong, as she had her pa and ma to look after her. Constable Wilcock gave the accused a bad character, and stated that he arrested her early on the morning of the 6th inst., whilst soliciting prostitution in the neighborhood of the Sydney-road coffee stall.

There is nothing lower than to admire and flatter a man simply because he e has got on. ?ecause he has carried his point, because he has come to be talked about in the way in which he wished to be talked about, and to think scorn of others whose merits and efforts have been equal to his, or very likely much greater, but whose merits and efforts have, from some cause or other, not been so lucky as his in gaining the object at which they
