Everyone tries to be clever, to cul
tivate Individuality nowadays, forget
ting to look Inwards first to see if
there Is anything of special original
ity to cultivate. A girl may. Indeed,
consider It good fortune If she finds
that there Isn't anything special, that
she will make Just the ordinary, nor
mal woman, with an Illogical fondness
for home, husband and children. It
Is really more original to be a domes
tic woman today than to be a pro
nounced specimen of any other type.
An Historic Forest.
The historical associations connected
with the forest of Vallombrosa are
very Interesting. It was founded in
the Twelfth century and given Its
name which, literally translated,
meaas "Shadowed Valley," by Saint
GlorvannI Gaulberto, says Nelson
Courtlondt Brown in the American
Forestry-Magazine. It was founded
as a monastery and retreat for one of
the Benedictine order of monks, and
from Its early Inception the monks
took great pride In caring for, culti
rating and replanting the forests.
Chess vs. Checkers.
. Chess appeals to mature minds, and
wood supplies most of the accoutre
ments with which It is played. Some
of the best are of ebony and boxwood,
but very 'satisfactory games may be
played with yellow poplar, bass wood,
walnut, maple and birch outfits, says
the American Forestry Magazine. The
same holds true on checkers, but that
game usually Is rated a little lower
I than chess In scientific points, though
no less an authority than Edgar Allan
Poe holds that as a mental exercise
of the highest and purest sort check
ers surpass chess.
