Eason, | ·Dnnbor, and at the best drag slora In ; CTery town aad city in the country, i There arc no better in the British Army than the Jrish troops. They have proved Shin hi man; a bard-fought battle. The Royal Irish Fusiliers are called 1'ag- ao-BaDagh boys, a Gaelic phrase indicating that they "clear the way." There are so many £amoos Irish regiments that an of them cannot be named here. Among the best are th« M«nst«r Pnsiliers, the Koysl lo- nolkilBne Fnsfliers. the Irish Guards, tin Dnbtm fusiliers, 'lite Royal Irish Regiment, the Royal Irish Rifles and the CoBDaojrht Rancerx, with whom Brigadier General Vf.

O'Leary started his war service as a private in the COB- resnKht Rangers, and he is ram a captain. His whole career indicates that he does not Iroow what the word fear means. » Another splendid fighting man'who hails from Tipperary arrived in Nevr! York the other day to join the re- cmttfag torces of the British and Canadian Recraitine Mission. Bis naxoe is Captain Thomas F. MacMahon, of the Irish Guards, and he ·won the Military Cross in the Battle of the Somme. In September 1917 the Irish Guards sa^v very strerooa« firiitinjr in the Battle of the Sotmne.

To He kind and coorteons and coo- j stderate of tbe comtort of others--that Is the service which brings happiness. The rnan v?ho helps a crippled old woman upon the street car is happier for doing so. The fellow who stops to ·wipe n-Trny the tcur frora'the eyes of a child who bruised tts hand ; tbe wom- nn who visits n sick neighbor to see if she can be of any n?e; tile man who puts another In position to help himself--these little services qre quit* 'great in the realm of things that go to make for happiness. And they are possible with an of us. Tbe latest message from the Tied Cross tellj us that there Is. need of knitted sot They are more dlfli- 'colt to knit than some other garmenta, but that will not deter women from Dndertaitlng them.

It Beeros not to be generally understood that the surface of all water Is covered by a film of the water itself, which in its action la not nnlilie that of a thin sheet of India rubber, sayi Edward Blgulow, the scout naturalist, in Bojs' Life. To comprehend tWs one must Imagine the rubber to be so tbin as to be transparent. The surface of tbe water itself Is elastic anil under tension, so that a needle, though heavier than the water, may be floated on the surface. Several interesting experiments may, be made with the elasticity of thli film. One of the best Is to place two slender splinters of wood side by aide. on the water. Wow drop a little alcohol between the splinters. This alcohol will Immediately break the surf- nee film between the splinters, and the pulling force of the remaining film, since there is nothing between them to hold them, will cause the splinters Instantly to ny'apart. Another Interesting eiperiment ig to whittle a thin,- slender splinter, pointed at one end somewhat like a boat. Place R tiny bit of gum camphor on tbe rear of this splinter and the 'gum will destroy the surface film so that there ·wlU be no pull in th« rear. As there Is a poll-In the front not balanced by one In the rear, the tiny boat will ran forward as rapidly AS the camphrr can dissolve the film In the rear. Some interesting little "magic" tricks mlgbt be developed from these experiments which would surprise and Instruct your friends. Special to The Courier. I MOUNT PLEASANT, March 4.-- \ Sirs. M, TV. W.

Thocf who seek kappiaess nevw find t--a tnttsrn that has been going the onoda woce philosophers began get- ing their words tflto print or upon raren Tablets, olisenres the Dayton ."ews. But It is well to repeat it oc- asionstfy, to keep it ever bef«re The taftivs i-f humanity, that ft may be- ome s« much ft part «f oar ereetl and Mth thst tbe yoanjjesi among us and ie oMf«s' may realize r J i e - f t i H meaning There i# no greater unhapptness than that of pnrstiing happiness, for ·inppiness is never overtaken by those ·.vho pursue it. Happiness comes to iiira who !s not thinking of it; t*» him ··rtio is doing something for others, with ne^er a tlwmgtit of his own hap- jiinpss, No man has ever yet followed rt coarse of eondner with his own hap- -j'iness in view and achieved his pw- pose. Service to others--that is flit there is to life that savors of. tinpptofts?. The service need not ?)e great: It is g^TSn to few persons t«» he of ereat service. And those who are of jrrent service d« r.oc r^iilize it--they do not start out Not At) Love Stlenc*. Dr. A. A. Brfll ot New York teHs ot a musical genius who complained of insomnia, which he maintained to be due to street noises in the city and cricket and night CO!!M In the country. Many persons who become hypersensitive to noises blnrae their troubles on tho sounds. This very patient could listen with rnptnre to music and yet believe that noises kept him, awake I Some of the greatest apostlns of silence have shown themselves In need of noise. For example, .Tofan Stnurt Mill, who "was an enemy of nil noiee, hired a boy, according to Doctor Brill, to bent R drum next to the room In which he "worked in order to stimulate j Ins thoughts. , OHIOPYm March.
