\ JAPANESE PROVERBS.!
They are More Picturesque In Lan
guage Than Ours.
".Roses have Thorns" and "Walls
have ears" are as common in the Jap
anese speech as in our own. We say
"More haste, less speed," but the Jap
anese Phrase is "If in a hurry go
around." In this country we very
often remark that "accidents will hap
pen in the best regulated families."
The japs. on the other hand, with an
eye ro the picturesque. vitalize it. so
to speak, in their "Even a monkey
sometimes falls from a tree." One of
our useful English sayings is "Those
who play with edged tools must ex
pect to cut their fingers." In express
ing a similar thought the Japanese
go us one better so far as picEures
queness is concerned. He says "If
you keep tigers you are likely to have
trouble." One of our standard max
ims is to the effect that "oil and water
won't mix." The Japs have not im
proved on this. "You can't rivet a
.,ail in a custard" is their w y of put
ting it. "The lotus springs from the
mud" is their poetical expression of
the common thought that "out of evil
good may come."
What could be more suggestive anQ
at the same time so poetic as their
"Scattering a fog with a fan?" When
a Jap undertakes 'che impossible his
ieighbors do not scoff at him or mock
him. They simply say that he is
"building bridges to the clouds" or
that he is "dipping up the ocean with
a shell." Failure in such a country
-must be as delightful as success in
our more material land. "Thine own
-eart makes the world" is wnrthy of
Emerson or Browning.
When reading the reminiscences of
General Gordon of the Confederate
Army, recently published, we cannot
-fail to notice his intense religious
spirit; the spirit that inspired revivals
in the Southern camps, and caused
the Confederate soldiers to display
-persistent courage during -Ehe war.
Gordon had such a keen sense of hu
mor that, as if afraid to portray the
horrors of war too vividly, he turned
aside occasionally, and with curious
abruptness, to describe the humorous
aspect of an incident or a person. He
says that General Polk, a Bishop ot
the Episcopal Church, was an admirer
of General Cheatham, the most ac
tive fighter in Johnston's army; that
Cheatham's battle cry was "Give 'em
hell, boys !" and that the scrupulous
Bishop in cimes pf excitement always
shouted to his men, "Give it to 'em.
1boys! Give 'em what General Cheat
ham says!" A similar story is told of
General Pendleton, an Episcopal
clergyman, and chief of Lee's artil
lery. He always prefaced his com
mand to "fire" with the w.ords "The
Lord have mercy on your souls."

People the world over were horrified
on learning of the burping of a Chicago
theater in which nearly six hnndred
people lost their lives, yet more than
five times this nnmber or over 3,000

passing notice. Every one' of these
ca es of pneumonia resulted from a
cold and could have been prevented by
the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough

reason to fear pneumonia have warded
it off by the prompt use of this remedy.
The following is an instance of this
sort: "Too much cannot be said in
favor of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
