Unwelcome Invitation.
Donald, aged four, had been kept at
"hoirie for some time for fear of catch
ing the whooping cough, so one after
noon, after much pleading with his
mamma, he was .permitted to take a
? little outing. While sitting on a bench
In the park a child sat down beside him,
who at once began to cough violently.
Donald's mother snatched him away
quickly and immediately started for
home. Donald was quite silent on the
homeward journey, but just as soon
aaske stepped inside of the door of his

sisters: "O, kids! What do you think?

Ancient Gateways.
In days when cities were walled
about for purposes of defense against
an enemy, most of the masters of the
people being marauders and brigands,

indestructible by any w?apons of those
times. The ancient gates were built
in the walls of cities at those points
where the chief highways centered
and on which an enemy would surely
try to make his: attack.

what was the cause of her:mirth. Her

Flag of Belgium.
The Belgian flag perpetuates the
colors of the duchy of Brabant, and
was adopted when the monarchy was
set up in 1831. The red, it should be
noted by those who wish to use it cor
rectly, forms the fly of the flag, the
yellow/the middle, and the black the
hoist. The Russian Imperial navy flies

Gallic civilization of centuries,-Ar

sacrifice."-Washington Star.
