The Spaninrds resented strongly the
intrusion of these foreigners and made
many attempts to oust them, but the
buccaneers were a hardy set of men
and crack shots with the musket. so
they successfully resisted all the Span

Possibly the constant harrying to
which they were subjected by the

Beware of Cousins.
Cousins are not as simple as they
seem. The very fact of being a cousin
or having a cousin is complioated. The
laissez faire of cousinship is both elud
ing and deluding. Cousins will be cous
ins even if you did not choose them.
They can borrow money from you,
visit you without being asked, tell peo- 9
ple they belong to your family, contest t
your will, even fall in love with you,
and a cousin once removed is twice as
apt to. Never completely trust a
cousin; never depend on his not doing
any of these things; never take him t
for granted. The "cousinly kiss" may
or may not mean what it means, and 9
cousins always do kiss. It's part of I

prove perilous. Once in a blue moon d

Wear Slippers n the House. I
In England it Is the custom not only a
for grown persons, but also for chil- c
dren, to wear slippers in the house. P
English children as well as grownuPs a
wear shoes as we in America wear ~
rubbers, only out of doors. This is not
only a more comfortable custom with
regard to footwvear than ours, but It
is also more healthful The streets
and sidewalks and even the yards are t
dusty. This dust, full of germs as it
Is, should not be tracked all over the 3
house. We would do well in the in
terests of preventive medicine to pro- t
vide slippers for our children .and toC
insist upon the wearing of them inC
the house. It is less trouble to change 1
from shoes to slippers, even three orC
tour times a day, than lt is to cure an
illness the germ of which may have I
