fTbo reasons for marriago are evident to all.
f There are, too, sufficient reasons why some

secure a partner to share their labors is what
influence many men to take unto themselves
MAP.Rren for a hove.
ITow often we hear it wild that this one
nni mat one "married for a home." The
impression would imply a lark of sentiment,
and certainly does sound eminently practi
cal. And yet, undoubtedly, ninny happy
Marriages have been contracted by those

left behind in the headlong scramble. Only
In our homes can we And rest. A yearning
or sympathy prompt many to marry,
and naturally we choose mates with
kindred' hopes ami aspirations with
ourselves. If one does not marry,
lie sooner or later loarns to feel tliat the
world has little interest in Mm beyond what
he contribute to its welfare and selfish ends.
Mao and wife labor for each other's trood-
each contributes to the other's welfare, Xot
nl ways the. first rawon for marriage is the
- frratulcation of love. As has been said:
"This is the highest sentiment of the human
heart. Intellect pale before it. The sacred
Look could have said nothing more exalted
when it avowed that 'God is love.' All bu
mau hearts have somewhere and sometimes a
desire to love and bo loved. A loveless life is
g starved life. Love warms human nature;
it Wt it on fire. It can receive its highest
development only in marriage. The loves
bet ween friends are very beautiful, but the
love betwi-en man and woman in a jierfuct
marriage- is divine."
These are some of the reasons for marriage.
Others might be given, but it is purposeless
to consider them. Any one of tho inany
weighs sufficiently in any case where the ten
dency exists. The child of consumptive
parents rarely hesitates to enter the holy
state. Nor does the young man or womau

women and children as the rag and ajer
trade. This seems a bold statement to make
in this city of mammoth factories and
crowded oi-ctijxitioiiH, I nit it is none the less
true for that. Our Italian citizens enjoy a
mouoiKly of the trade in old taper and
rags. Very few if any other eople are en
gaged in the gathering and sorting of this
wate material, the utilizing of which forms
so vast an industry. The junk shops through
which most of the rags and laifter pass are
generously sprinkled about the city, and into
ono of tin-so recently the writer wormed his
way Itetweeu shady bowers of bundled rags
and groves of I led jujicr. The proprietor,
in answer to (jucrie plied by the writer, said:
"IVrhnps it m-em likoan exaggeration of
tho truth, but more than 100,000 pounds of
assorted rags ar gathered every week by
the industrious rag pickers and sold to the
dealers, who, in turn, seli them to the mills,
whero they are mado into pajter. The paper
anu rag? wtiicn are brought to us are bought
by the weight, at so much per pound. They
are then carefully sorted and mad up into
bales. Clean white rags are used for making
the best quality of white paper, and are,
therefore, the most exjiensive. Black rags of
good quality are purgod and ir.ade perfectly
white by luimoitiou in acid baths. Women
and girls m:stly oro engaged in sorting the
rags. Constant practice in doing this lias
made them very skillful. Many of the
dirtiest ami most poverty stricken looking
pickers mwcs small fortunes, and there are
nut lew of them who cannot boast of a good
bank account. Slowly they are accumulat
ing money, meanwhile living on next to
nothing. No one knows anything of their
plans until some fine day the familiar griz
zled face of Antonio or C!ui!epe is missed,
and inquiry discloses the fact that he has ac
quired his pile and returned to his sunny
Italian home to enjoy the fruits of his labor.
"Most of tho common rags are made into
roofing material, while newspapers are again
converted into blank sheets to bo used for the
same purjobe. Most of the best rags, such
cotton or woolen rugs, are sent to Ilolyoke,
Mass., there to be made into fine grades of
iper, such as bond, ledger, parchment, etc.
In sorting rags, pieces of new silk or red
cloth are frequently found. These are laid
aside to bo sold to neck tie manufacturers,
who convert them into stylish new cravats
for fashionable young men."
"Do you ever find auy articles of value
among tho old rags" was asked.
"Not very often," replied the dealer. "The
rags are pretty thoroughly overhauled be
fore they reach our hands. The only 'find'
of any great value that I ever made was that

"There is but little doubt that disease is
often conveyed in the bales of refuse rags
and paper imported from other and less
cleanly countries than our own. I do not
think, however, that domestic rags are often
purveyors of maladies; at least, such cases
have never been brought to my notice. I

A Head of Her Own.
Queen Victoria is not ornamental as a
woman, but as a sovereign she certainly
commands respect, and she is unparalleled In
her jealous anxiety to aggrandize the family
of which she is the chief and increase the
prestige of her country. She has been called
"a Louis XI in petticoats, a Machiavelli in
corsets. She has more than once outwitted
Bismarck and caused to pale before her
frown tho Emperor William of glorious
memory." Terhaps she is all of this, and
perhaps again she is not, but one thing is
certain, when reasons of state and policy arp
not an obstacle, she dissembles none of her
senti ments ; she never dissimulates, bu t speaks
out her mind freely without a care for what
others may think, all of which is charminsr

nearly so nice when' one is not so, as poor

Ceylon has several distinct races living
upon it. Long before history begun to be
written it bad prosperous eople, and contin
ued so for ages. It has old cities, deserted
ages ago, and great tanks for gathering and
holding water for irrigation purxwes, which
show thnt portions of the island, now wild
and waste, were once teeming with popula
tion. Tho ruins and the tanks are all that is
left as a record of the eople who built them.
Even the descendants of these ieopIe have
dwindled down to a little over 2,000 and are
wild sava'a, shunning civilized men. The
Singaicse, who have Persian and Arab blood
in them, ate rattier fair, delicate I u form mikI
organization; expert manipulators in jewelry
and other nice work all Buddhists, and
numter less than 2,000,000. They were,
many generations ago, overrun by Tamils
vigorous, hardy, nearly black men from
southern India who today number about
two-thirds of a million, and are the hard
workers and Hindoo In religion. Tho mixed
blood called Eurasians and Burghers are
tht. descendants of tho Portiigeeso, who held
mo island ror nearly a century and a half,
a.id of the Dutch, who controlled for a cen
tury and a third, and numbers less than 20,
000. These, with many Singalese, are Catho
lics mostly. Other jieoples swell the popula
tion to 2,700,000, and are governed by less
than 5,000 Europeans. These latter are
planters and officials. Eurasians and full
uatite have cinnamon gardens.
By the way, this plant when cultivated is
wept uown to a small shrub not over eight
feet high. In the forest it grows to a pretty
tree and as large, say, as the pear. A garden
is very pretty, the foliage being very glossy
and of light, cheerful green. The bark on
the green stem, while spicy, has not tho pun
gency of the cured article. Tho sun in cur
ing seems to bring it out. I will here state
that the growing tea leaf has no more flavor
than an ordinary tasteless weed, and gives no
promises to the uninitiated of that wonderful
quality which makes it the sweetest friend
and kindliest solace of so many countless
millions of human beings. It has not it
properties brought out by sun heat, but by
fire. A few of the fine brands in China are
sun cured, but do not reach the general
nurseis, oeingconiined to the larders of very
rich Celestial connoisseurs. Cinnamon aud
rice cultivation is confined to the low, hot
lands of the island, and is in the bauds
generally of the old Singaloso opulatiou.
They and the Tamils are tho fishermen.
A NATIVK BOAT.
The native boat is a queer thing a log of
wood from ten to twenty feet long, turned
upward at each end, is dug out into a shallow
trough, rarely over a foot wide. On top of
this the boat is carried with boards to a
length twice as great as the solid keel lielow,
and say two or so feet high, but no wider.
From this craft springs two leut poles to a
light log of wood from six to ten feet nfT
This out rigger makes the queer catamaran,
one of the safest small boats which run out
into the sea. The native sits with ono foot
in and one outside of the narrow trough, and
rows or sails far out on the deep, and can
brave a storm the ordinary long boat could
not survive. They are rowed rapidly and
sail eight to twelve knots an hour. Two
small platforms, say four feet square, are
built on top. On this the boatman carries
his freight and the fisherman his nets. I am
told the fisherman frequently goes out fortv
miles to sea.
All along tho coast the natives are semi
amphibious. A number of half grown boys
3urround steamers coming and going on
queer little rafts built of three buoyant sticks
ten to twelve feet long and lashed together.
Upon this the half naked fellows sit on their
legs and paddle very rapidly. So expert aro
they at diving that a silver coin, thrown
thirty to fifty feet off, never reaches the bot
tom before it is caught. Passengers get sev
eral of these boats around in a semicircle
from the steamer, then drop a small coin
close to tho ship. The boys spring toward it
and swim up to the point, then go headlong
below, squirming like frogs, after the shin
uig metaL They will even got a copper, if
not very far off. But they like the white
ness of the purer metal These boys are all
quite dark, but the bottoms of their feU are
almost white. Why?
The Singalese aro a comely looking race,
with features quite effeminate in their deli
cacy. This appearance is further increased
by their long hair, tied in a knot at tho back
of the head and held smooth by a light tor
toise comb, such as young girls at home wore
when I was young. Thedress is the univorsnl
band of cloth, here left to fall like a skirt; a
jachet is worn ji ftje cities m tho country
and villages only a cotton cloth is thrown
over the shoulders. The women have, to a
great extent, adopted a semi-European cos
tume. At least those I saw had.
THE BCXLOCK CART.
Tb.e Tamil population dress as the southern
fndian does, by the way, the tea and poffee
estates are worked and the heavy labor about
cities is aone by coolies brought annually
from the poasf of southern India, from Mal
abar to Madi as. This region f m nishes coolie
labor west of Singapore, as tho Chinese do
This leads me to speak of another mode of
conveyance here and in India the bullock
cart The Indian bullocks all have the hump,
but jn pther respects they vary in form and
appearance as much as the different breeds of
our cattle in some" localities ' very tall and
long horned. I have seeq a yoke over six
teen bands high, and have seen horns over
three feet in length. These horns in w hole
districts point up and toward each other.
In some localities they spread and often bend
downward. In Burmah the ox is fair sized,
but his horns are very short. In Ceylon he
is very small, pippactly built, and has little
.nubs for horns. He is very pretty and very
quick in ' motion! At Kalutara, near the
southend of the island, three of us rode in
a little caftdrasvn by a bullock forty-one
inches high' and not much longer from his
front to the root of his tail The brave little
fellow trotted at a gait of say six or seven
miie3 an hour. When, after a steady pull!
he felt tired, h would give a quick back mo
tion, as much as to say hold on.
He is an admirable beast for villages. He
requires no harness. His little yoke is fast
ened to the ends of the shafts; drop it over
his neck, and tie a cord to keep him from
throwing it off, an4 hp s rPSdj. But the
Englishman rarely deigns to use him. What
