“It ia a serious matter to adviae

delay tho beginning of their educa

should never bo given without care-

problem. Hut, in spite of the great
importance of education, health ia

“Delicate children should be tak
en out of achool, for a time at least,
if it ia found that they are failing
in health. Nowadays in many of
the cities, fresh air schools are pop
ular, aud this often helps in decid
ing the problem. Kvcn delicate
children may attend an outdoor
achool all winter, with only a few
days’ interruption in the severest
weather. Tho notoriously bad air
of many schools is thus done away
with, and it is remarkable how alert
tho child's mind is when he is study
ing in the open air.
“Although delicate childron do
not require any more sleep than
healthy children, they often get
less, and their sleep may bo inter
rupted by dreams and other mani
festations of their nervous makeup.
It is particularly desirable that such
children should ho put to bed early
in tho evening, at least by 7 o’clock,
before they are allowed to become
excited by callers or even the usual
family life. A nap should bo in
sisted upon pach day, and even if
tho child will not sleep he should
bo required to lie down after the
noon meal for at least an hour.” '

The spider is an excellent guide
to the weather. Not only is he ex
tremely sensitive to the state of the
atmosphere, but ho takes a keen
interest in the habits of flying in
sects. Ho knows that these do not
come out in the wet. When, there
fore, ho is “resting,” you may be
certain that he is expecting rain.
But should he be busy constructing
a new web it is a sign that he is
looking forward to n fine spell—and
he is generally right.

The manufacture of cotton was
introduced into Europe by the
Arabs. Abdurahman III. about the
year 930 caused it to be commenced
in Spain, from which country it
spread slowly to other European
lands. He also established exten
sive manufactures of silk and leath
er and interested himself much in
the culture of the silkworn. The
Arabs were also the authors cf the
art of printing calicoes by wooden
blocks, a great improvement ou the
old operation of painting by hand.
NEW COMBINATION OFFER
One of tho curious social customs
practiced by the Crow as well as
by many other Indian tribes is the
"mother-in-law taboo”—that is to
say, a man is under no circum
stances permitted to hold conversa
tion with his wife’s mother. An
other strange regulation is that re
lating to (he playing of practical
jokes. A nun is not permitted to
jest with any one he pleases, but is
limited to the individuals whose fa
thers belonged to the same clan as
his own father. Within this group,
however, practically any liberty is
allowable. If a man discovers that
a “jokable relative” has committed
some foolish or disgraceful act he
can publicly twit him with it, and
tho person so derided must not get j
angry, but bide his time for some
favorable opportunity to retaliate.
