By L. A. Miller.
It’s a moral certainty for young
, men and women to marry; in fact, it
is obligatory, if the race is to be sus-
, tained. It is said that “man’s love is
, of man’s life a thing apart; tis wom-
'an’s whole existence;” which is un-
doubtedly true.
Men have their professions, their
business and financial cares; their po-
litical projects and ambitions, and
other things in which the wife has no
share. Women remain at home more
in that sacred, if restricted, sphere
where men come for comfort, retire-
ment and a taste of those joys the do-
mestic hearth alone can furnish.
There is peace and contentment at
the home where the wife and children
spring to welcome the father upon his
return from the office, the business
house or the factory; and the man, in
turn, leaving the strife of the push-
ing world behind him when he closes
the street door of his home, is thank-
ful for that haven of rest.
The nation possessing the greatest
number of homes is positively the
most enduring. Home life is elevat-
ing and strengthening, and when
young men and women marry and
found a home of their own they are
participants in the work of perpetu-
ating a people and assume responsi-
bilities the gravity of which they do
not realize for some time afterward.
A wife leaves home, parents,
friends, and all connected with her
previous existence to follow her hus-
band, who, on his part, must consid-
er her above all things else and make
: her the chiefest object of his care, so-
!licitude and attention. Before enter-
ing the married state, therefore,
young men and young women should
; indulge in reflection; and not rush in-
' to matrimony unthinkingly.
Parents should be alert in the mat-
ter of admitting young men to their
homes; and it is due to their daugh-
ters that those who call upon them
should be of unquestionable character.
Parents are often careless as to their
daughters’ associates, and if the re-
sult should be otherwise than gratify-
ing are inclined to place the blame up-
on the shoulders of their children in-
stead of their own.
Most men can make money, but few
can save it, and here is where the wife
comes to the rescue. Men are made
and unmade by their wives, but the
influence of the latter, in the main is
of the highest good. More men have
found their way to success by reason
of having the right sort of wives than
have suffered because of having been
unfortunate in the selection of a “bet-
ter-half,” and while men may not
know it, they are indebted in a great-
er degree than they can ever repay,
to the women who cheerfully and un-
complainingly bear, not only their
own burdens, but many of those of
their husband as well. A girl who
has been taught to economize and
take care of her father’s house can be
means of her husband.
Siam’s King Visits Temples.
Each year when the rainy season is
over, the King of Siam spends about
two weeks: making his customary
round of visits to the different Budd-
hist temples of Bangkok. On these
occasions the King goes in a boat,
manned by 60 rowers on each side,
each clad in a uniform of red, and us-
ing a long oar. The royal seat is near
the stern, raised on four pillars, and
surmounted by a_ highly ornate, tow-
er-like canopy. In front and behind
the royal seat stand attendants hold-
ing up large umbrellas, which look
like golden cones.
On landing at an appointed place,
the King rides in a sedan chair to
the temple, when all along the way
the people prostrate themselves on
the ground keeping silent as a mark
of supreme respect. For about half
an hour the King occupies himself
with the: ceremony of worship in the
temple, into which the public is not
To the temple outside Bangkok the
King dispatches deputies, his person-
al pilgrimage being confined to the
temples of the city.

Old Papers in Hongkong.
A considerable trade is done in
Hongkong in the sale of old newspa-
pers, which are used by the Chinese
for wrapping purposes, says Consul
LeRoy Webber, in a report to the De-
partment of Commerce. The imports
vary from 4000 to 7000 tons per an-
num, the United States supplying on
an average 98 per cent, of this amount
and the remainder coming chiefly
from the Philippines and Canada. The
greater portion of the imports is sold
to the nearby markets of South Chi-
na, Indo-China and Siam.
Imports are generally made in bales
of 200 to 560 pounds, bound with iron
hoops and entirely free from maga-
zines or catalogues. Quotations are
generally given c. i. f. Hongkong, al-
though some firms buy f. 0. b. Pay-
ment is usually made on the basis of
cash against documents or upon arri-
val of the goods. The retail price de-
pends on the market price in the
United States, Hongkong prices being
generally about 10 per cent. above the
former. The current price is $95
gold per long ton.

His Gloom Shared.
Mr. Millerton, who is a great deal
of a hypochondriac and enjoys look-
ing forward “to the end,” was in an
especially depressed mood one even-
ing when he gave some thought to the
question of a second marriage for his
“Harriet, my dear,” he said gloomi-
ly, “when 1 am gone from this vale of
tears, you must marry again. It is
my dearest wish.”
“William,” observed his wife, with
a faint smile, “no one will marry an
old woman like me. You ought to
have died fifteen years ago for that.”

Shanghai bakers used to wrap their
bread and cakes in nice green lotus
leaves. But the days of this roman-
tic practice are gone forever. Ac-
cording to the new regulations cover-
ing bakery products, bread and other
products must be suitably wrapped in

particular requirement quoted by As-

Smith in a report to the Department

“That bread and bakery products
shall, upon sale or when carried or
handled for sale, or delivered in bas-
kets, vehicles or otherwise, be suita-
bly wrapped in grease-proof paper or
other cleanly covering, in such man-
ner as to completely protect the
bread from dirt, dust and flies, or
from harmful contact in handling.”
Stung Once.
A convict at San Quentin who
wanted more than the regular fare,
once made a complaint in rather in-
genius terms. An inspector entered
this man’s cell and found it very hot
and stuffy.
“Why have you your ventilator
closed ?” he asked.
The prisoner answered bplacidly:
“Well, inspector, the last time I had
the ventilator open a wasp flew in,
you see, and carried off my dinner
while my back was turned, so now
I'm not taking any chances.”—St.
