The most H)verrul ath lete may be conquered by malaria or typhoid fever when u frail little wom an throws off the attack of the germs that cause these diseases and never feels them. A great prizefighter walks out In the evening and Is stung by a mosquito. A day or two later be Is shlvertug with cold and burning wltt fever by turns. The mosquito bus Injected the genua of malaria Into bis blood, and bis blood has not the strength to exterminate them. Fie receives ti small wound. The surgeon has to sew It up. and the big, biwky chup faints from the pulu. while a slender, fragile woman endures pa I us a hundred times aa severe with scarcely a murmur. For muscular strength snd physical health have uothtug to do with ettcb other. The physical exercise that causes the former is. however, con ducive to the latter, for It makes a man breathe deeply, sets heart pumping more vigorously, aids bis stomach and lutestiues to digest better, distracts the mind from care aud promotes sound sleep. But great muscular strength wfteu exists with poor power of resist ince to disease. The most obvious proof of this Is In he resisting power of women. Wom an's vitality Is greater than man's. She resists starvation better; she la not so susceptible to cold or beat; she can stand a greater loss of blood; wheu poisoned she Is more likely to recover, and bow often do we see physical gi ants the most miserable of victims to seasickness while delicate women are eating their live meals a day la stormy weather on shipboard: New VorK World.

The lower part of the hair Is made Into h plait, with a silver or golden orna ment at tbe end to prevent tts coming -undone These silver or golden clips and hah ornaments are often set with preclou stones, and princesses even have tin whole of the plait hidden by means oi stiver or golden rings. As the making up of tbe hair takes a whole day ami the Mongol. women are very lar.y ami not particularly cleanly In their hnb its.
