What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Tb*i Haoli'ldr’s Advice. 4 Do you know a lucious mouth, Hooey oozing like the South, Lips like bashful roses red On a bed of lilies wed? Do you think about it! Thinking leads to mad desire That will scorch the heart like fire; If a sweet mouth haunts you still Put it from you with a will, Never think about it. Do you know a pair of eyes, Dreamy, soft and passion wise? Or may hap a pair you’ve seen Of serene and haughty sheen— Do not think about ’em! Liquid eyes,are like a pool Where one looks and sees a fool, C mu you deem that such are kind If they kill your peace of mind? Never tbmk about ’em, Do you know a downy cheek, Peachy, plump and satiii sleek, Where, when laughter’s zephers sweep Dimples deep like eddies keep? Do not think about it. Dimples come and dimples go Where the roses stain the snow, But the wound that did the harm E’en outlives the fatal charm, Never think about it. ‘Tis a rule for young and old, Good to keep and good to hold; Woman’s charms are devil’s bait, All too late we mourn our fate. Do not think about ’em. Lily hands and fairy feet, Lucious lips and glances sweet— Love’s a chain and' these are links, He’s a slave who looks and thinks. Never think about ’em. —Chicago Herald. ---------------------------------------- m m m ----------------- — ■ i Gentle Giants. The Guanches, the inhabitants of the Canary Islauds, are said to be the remnants of the ancient race who 10,000 years ago peopled the drowned continent of An lan­ ds, says the Cornhili Magazine. They are reported to have been strong ana handsome, and of ex tiaordinary agility of movement of remarkable courage, and of a loyal disposition; but they showed the credulity of children and the simple directness of shepherds. So tall were they that the Span-, iards speak of them as giants, and their strength and endurance were’ so great that they were conquered by stratagem, but not force. They ran as fast as horses, and could leap over a pole five or six feet high; they could climb the high­ est mountains and }ump the deep est ravines. Their endurance as swimmers was so great that they were ac­ customed to swim across the nine- mile strait between the Lanccrote and Graciosa. Having no boats, their method of fishing was to strike the fish with sticks or catch them in their hands while swim­ ming. Their skulls, which are well preserved io the museums of he island, and of which I took photographs, show marked cere­ bral development, the frontal and parietal bones being w. II devel oped and the facial angle good. In the early days of the conquest. b< fore rapine and murder had done their vile Work, t he Guanch es are spoken of as being musical and fond of dancing and souring. Though so strong physically, the Guanches were nevertheless a very gentle race, they rarely made war with one another, and when t he Europeans fell into thuir hand? they did not kill them, but sent them to tend sheep in the moun tains. So tame were life birds in this happy land that when the Spaniards first landed they came and fed out of their hand“ To kill an animal degraded a man, the butcher was a reprieved crim­ inal and ad outcast, and liv«*d apart, lie and his assistant being supported by the state. No worn an was allowed to approach tlie shambles, and in such horror was killing held by these giants that no-man could be enuooled until he had publicly declared that he had not. been guily of killing any animal, not even a goaf. Their standard of morality was higli;rthey were inonegamrsTs and adultery was punished by im prisonment and death; robbery was almost unknown among them, and drunkenness not yet invented. The Gu nches were bound by law to treat women with the greatest respect, and a man was obliged to make way for every woman he met, wa king, to bear her burdens, and deferentially to escort her home should she wish it. If a Guanche were ennobled for any ¿reat deed the people were as semhled on Lite occasion, and among the questions asked,to which a negative answer must be given before the patent of nobility was granted, was: “Has be ever been disrespectful to women?” The »women are not celebrated foi hav­ ing been beautiful, but they were almost as agile and strong as (he men. liven in war the women and children were protected and pillage was forbidden.

One of their number, possessed of money, had purchased a pear. The others wished for it—in vain*. The philosopher laid down fifty cents and told the dealer to give the urchins fruit up to that, limit: At. first tnere was a little cheer of approval. On«* boy took his share in plums. Another wanted an as­ sort ment, but there was no dam ­ sons. Another selected a lino peach, but a third also wanted that. He gave it up.nnd. tried to take two apples. Another boy wanted one of the apples. A fourth gamin snatched both apple * and pear and st arted to run. Two others followed, caught and pum- meled him. While they were so engaged their own goods were confiscated-for general,vuse... Tho dealer had to run them away with a club to keep them from overturning his stand. A dozen fresh urchins-attracted by. that, sharp sense which tells of spoil, flocked in, grew angry because they had “ been robbed,” as they received nothing, and in five min­ utes the block was full of strug­ gling, fighting.vbrawling boys. “All broughlabour by prosper­ ity,” said the philosopher. P i c urei*<aiie People» o f Greece. Pittsburg Leader. The national costume of the Greeks is both pretty and pictur­ esque. The men weai^ tight pan­ taloons, stocking»’ to Ike knees, and a short, fluted dress or kilt about the hips, all made of a text­ ure and color to suit the wearer’s taste, but mainly light and white at this season. Their hats are of every possible variety and color,' and their shoes are generally red or yellow and turned up at the toes like our old style 6kates, with a red, blue, yellow or black tuft on the points. The female dress cannot be satisfactorily described. It consists of whatever strikes tho wearer’s fancy, and there are just about as many styles as there aro women, the short dress and poly­ chromatic shawl, with no hat, be­ ing the Bust prevalent.
