P. able to ° First Baptist Church, is Bish Phia, 9' Blackwell, of Philadel- s in our village last week, and The Word “Khaki” The word “khaki” (pronounced kah- kce) was derived from East Indian “khak,” meaning dust; it is now applied both to the cloth and its color, writes H. J. M., in “Arms and the Man.” The name was first given to a dust-colored fabric, something like Holland linen, which was worn by the East Indian troops, both British and native. A mixed regiment of frontier troops, known as the Guides, _ were the first (1848) to don the khaki uniform. During the Indian mutiny (1857-58), some of the British troops wore khaki, and from that time it was in almost universal iise by the British and native armies in Asia and Africa. The uniform of all the British soldiers m the South African war (1899-1902) was made of khaki drill, but it was found to be-of too light a texture for cold weather in the South African uplands. Since 1900, all drab and gray-green British uni forms are popularly known as khaki. The khaki uniforms worn by the British troops in the present European war are made from British wools, and manufactured in the well-known cloth mills of the West Riding, m Yorkshire. The warp of the cloth is of worsted, and the weft of woolen. Its weaving entails the use of a heavy, complicated, and expensive loom, and the work is so diffi cult and particular that a weaver who can “mind” two looms of ordinary cloth, can “mind” only one of khaki cloth. Khaki uniforms were first worn by the United States troops in the Spanish- American War (1898). The material was of natural olive drab rather than regulation khaki color, and is now offi cially known as cotton service uniform. Laugh a Little Laugh a little now and then, It lightens life a lot You can see the funny side Just as well as not, Don’t go mournfully around, Gloomy and forlorn; Try to make your fellow-men Glad that you were born. Laugh a good deal if you can That is better still. And you’ll find occasion, too. If you only will. Laughing lightens labor some. When you have to strive; Laugh and show the world that you Are glad that you’re alive. —Anon Lines to the Chigger Here’s to the chigger That ain’t any bigger Than the point of an ordinary pin; But the bump that he raises Hurts like the blazes— And that’s where the rub comes in. Much is said about “night air” and its harmfulness. Approximately one- third of the time is spent in bed. The harmful “night air” is nothing else than the stale air of a cooped-up bedroom, in haled all night long in place of nature’s invigorating, health-giving fresh air. Courtesy pays big dividends, sweetens lives, makes and keeps friendships, opens the door to countless opportunities, is a big asset in “making good.” Let’s !be courteous.—Telephone News, Duty “Don’t be content with doing only your duty. Do more than your duty. It’s the horse who finishes a neck ahead who wins the race.” Andrew Carnegie “Reputation is what men and women think of us, Character is what God and the angels know of us.”
