SLEEP EIGHT HOURS Eat Plain Food and Chew Well? Drink Plenty of Water and Eat Plenty Only When Hungry I Trying to keep well is far more important than worrying about how to be cured" if we should get sick., i Man is master of his own fate, but i tie always tries to btame somebody I else if anything goes wrong with him! ' , Most sickness is due, either di rectly or indirectly, to our own carelessness, and the sooner we jrasp this fact, the better it will be Tor our personal welfare. What should I do to keep well? There are many things you should 10 or should not do in order to keep lealthy. Remember disease is not i normal condition, but is the result >f a cause, either known or un known. The cause of most dis 'ases is in turn the result of viola ing one or more of nature's plain , ind simple laws. Now if you persist in such viola ions, nature will present a bill, for ( he charges you for every one of ( ler laws ydu violate. Some of her ates are low, while others are ery high, but when she does pre-- , ent her bill, you ar^ going to pay* ( t in full, protest or no protest. So . lon't deceive yourself on that little ? ?oint* < 1 lere are a few plain, simple rules ' or keeping well, which if honestly ollowed, will no doubt save you rom much future trouble. Keep n the fresh * air and sunlight as luch as possible. Keep your ome clean, both inside and out. ee that your food is pure, fresh, lean and properly cooked. Always ?ash.your . hands before eating. 1 His is of great importance, vet is 1 ne of the most neglected health ules I know of and is the direct Quse of; transmitting various in actions, particularly in children. , iEat only'plain food. Fancy, high; i spicad dishes will sopner or later ffect the stomach. 'Chew your food "ell?don't bolt it as if you were iking a chunk of raw liver! If ur teeth are so bad you can't ew, go'-todentist without delay, ou, can't, have bad teeth and e.\ ..t-to keep, in,good'health.-. It will mveh cheaper to pay your den st now, than your doctor later! Drink plenty of water. Few pie drink enough", water., Tea. ffee; or milk do not t^k? the place ?pure water. Drink a <?lass just ?fore going to bed and another 'the rst thing'after you get up. Make is a fixed rule. : ??;?.$ Eat ; often ;\vhen. hungry?if yt>u n get the food?but don't stuff ?urself with r. lot of iur.k; just be-' use it is mealtime*' Some will tell u to ahvays eat your meals at the me hour or minute each day. but at's!all rot. The human body as t run by a clock., Common sense the'best thing to gt* by. When e system needs food, the stomach ill let you know in language you nnot possibly misunderstand. ~ en it 'don't want it, there is a asom so let it alone until it rings e bell. Your .stomach is neither storehouse nor. a garbage can! A normal adult needs at least ght hours sleep, out of the 2-1. e that you get it. Children and d people require more. Do everything in moderation and you don't, you- are sure to get a 11 sooner or later and nature will llec?.it just as sure as fate. So n't try to fool yourself about at little fact.

Sun day night in this city. A negro named Aubrey Washing-: ton had a tenMollar note in his po-. session which had been issued by the defunct government sometime in the early sixties, and from its condition showed it has passed through many hands in its long history. ?^Having exhausted his exchequer Washington conceived the idea of realizing upon the note. Seated in a pool room with him at the, time were two colored boys who volunteered to get the \?ill changed into money of the realm with "the understanding that each was to receive a dollar. The hoys proceeded to a stor:* con ducted by Mrs. Annie Berba. a Ger man woman, at the corner of Pen dleton and St. Asaph Streets. The light in the store was dim and Mrs. Berba ? without scrutinizing the note any more closely than to satisfy her self that the word "ten"' was upon it, handed out the change. Washing ton rewarded the boys with a dollajr ?ach. - ?

His Countrymen in Police Court At-a special session the Police Court last night a Chinaman who conducts a laundry in this city was arraigned on the charge of failing to deliver a satchel belongirtg to one of his customers. It was al leged by the complainant that it is his wont to carry his collars, etc.-, to the celestial in this receptacle; and that heretofore his business relations with the Chinaman had been satisfactory. ?A few days ago; j however, when he applied ior his garments they were handed to him minus the satchel. Claiitis. against Chinese laundry-' men are the most tantalizing issues iupon which the Police Court is cal led upon to pass judgr#?nt from the fact that'the defendant is gen erally unable' to understand Ewglish." Hence it is the custom generally to induce (he accused to pay the costs of lost articles without declaring them guilty of larceny. Last night the defendant appear ed with two lawyers, one an Alex andrian and the other from the land of Confucius. The latter, under standing the Chinese dialect as well as .English. aided the court mater ially in getting at I he case from the viewpoint of the defendant. The laundry man alleged that his custo mer had been in the habit of bring ing his garments to the laundry in the satchel and kiter. before the garments ^1!U' been washed and ironed, he would return and carry away the empty receplacle. This, it w^s alleged, must have been done on tln\ occasion of his last visit. As the case stood it was one man's word against another, hi nee no. de cision could Ik- rendered. The* com plainant said he could furnish a witness in his behalf, and tht. case was continued until tonight. The barrister from.the celestial kingdom is of the educated and modern das*. He* wears glasses and is lacking of the aggressive ness of most of our native lawyers. ^l?Jd-rnsnne?:cyJ and nvHiHie at the same time.made it evident that he is posted in law. In the present polvglott popula tion of Alexandria the Mongolian is represented, and a Chinese lawyer would prove ;i great desideratum in certain issres in which their coun trymen become involved.
