Health Officer Foulks Sajs
Most Sickness Due to
Carelessness.
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.

(joys of Thanksgiving except what
is sent to them by those who re-;
member them a - you used to do
when the home was situated at the
corner of Duke and Royal Streets,
Several of these children are ,the
same, as their physical infirmaties
have made it impossible to placed
them in private homes as was the j
intention. 'Pheir ages are front
thirteen to two years old.

giving may be sent'to Miss Holt,

A negro named Aubrey Washing-:

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. - ?
The pro lice were later informed of
the frauil and arrested Washington

ORIENTAL BARRISTER
\
Chinese Lawyer .Represents One a!
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.
