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.

Away from the ordinary track of shipsand blessed with a splendid climate,. are ‘ the Cocos-Keeling islands, in the Straits archipela- go. Their history: is as, strange and romantic as their present life is curious and unique. In 1885 a scotch sailor named Ross landed and seeing that the islands ‘were very good, he took possession and settled there withhis - family. The natives were gentle and teachable, so that Ross had no difficulty in making himself their ruler. In 1851. he hoisted the union jack as a pre- Dillion Pioneer Gone. With the going down of the sun Monday afternoon,, the life fires that have burned in the heart of Mrs. Ruth W. Sullivan for well nigh four score years, were quenched, and the soul that had traversed this world, diffusing peace and sunshine where’er’ it lingered, went back from whence it came, leaving sorrow and desola- tion among: the loved ones remain- ing. She had lived an exemplary life. never for a moment swerying from the straight path, and the tranquility of her last days, per- haps, was the best witness to this fact. Mrs. Sullivan was the wife of caution against the visit of a wandering ‘rench man-of-war, and six years later the isles were formally-annexed by the British | government, With rare t Arthur Sullivan, a well known citizen of this city.

There is. a certain breedof gazelle that never drinks. and the llamas of Patagonia live for years with- out taking water. In France there is. a particular class, of cattle near Losere that rarely touches water. This is all the more remarkable because these cattle giye milk of a rich quality, from which excellent cheese is made. —_—_————— While we sit brooding over our troubles and the hardships of. our lot, the great world goes tranquilly on, the infinite sky hangs over ‘us, the everlasting ofder abides, and ““God is where he was.”? .Can we ifot forget or efdure our pestering ‘insect miseries” for a little while in the- presence of the’ eternal laws and éternal powers?

In Francé there are 15,319 wo- men employed as gate keepers at the railroad crossings. They get very small pay, but the’ railroads provide each one with a house and small garden patch rent free. These women work every day in the year. They may not leave their posts for a day off eyen on Sundays and holidays, and their working days are from fifteen to eighteen hours long, Five thous- and two hundred seyenty-five of these women-earn not more than $2.90 a month; 7,709 receive from that sum up to $4.80; 1,680 get from $4.82 to $7.72, and 601 from $7.91 to $10.61.
