A JAPANESE LADY'S DIARY. Japanese women have a fine record oi literary work, according to Mrs. E. L. Adams-Beck in a lecture largely concerned with the life of a Japanese Court lady ol 1,003 years ago. This dainty lady, she said, flitted through the pages of her diary like a butterfly with a grace that had entirely passed away, and she commented on the similarity between the thoughts and ideas of the girl of that far-away period with those expressed by the young womfen of to- day. In her diary this Japanese lady of 1,000 years ago carried her naive confes- sions so far as to enter a catalogue of cer- tain feelings thus: THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR HEART BEAT. When your lover takes out a letter and hands it to you. When a parent or relation looks queer or is unwell. LOVABLE THINGS. When a baby of two comes crawling quickly across the floor, and, catching sight of some small bit of fluff or some- thing, takes it in its fingers to show it to the grown-ups. THINGS ENVIABLE. People who laugh &nd talk carelessly around you when you are feeling ill.
