Those who possess any real excellence think and say the least about it. Slugs crawl over our cabbages as the world's slander crawls over a good name. You may kill them, it ' ; true, but slime remains. - To procure real domestic happiness, four things are neces sary: "A merciful God, good health, a good housewife and a happy death." Inspire a child with right feelings, and you will govern its actions; hence the truth of the old adage: "Example is bet ter thanzwr." The best, the surest-course is never to have recourse to deception, but prove ourselves in every circumstance of life equally sincere and upright. Although war is still waging in the Philippines, neverthe less the Benedictine monks of .Mount-Serat (Spain) have for several months past taken up their peaceful employment of educating the natives. Despite the fact that some of them have been in danger of death (being accused of treason to their country), the good Fathers, with a truly Christian ven geance, have decided to devote their energies to the well-being of these benighted people. To this end they have erected at Tanday, one of Manila's suburbs, a college, which at present numbers 60 boarders and 140 day-scholars. The Philippino of to-day is in great need of a solid education. A new sedu cer has again appeared in the person of American sects and our Government, both of which are bent upon the introduc tion of their pernicious school system.
