Abstract: 
The beautiful corners of France. The Vaud Alps in winter. Villars is the center of a pretty chain of mountains. The dent of Midi, the Mont-Blanc chain. In Winter, Villars offers superb skating. Near Villars, Leysins, in a magnificent location, is frequented by the sick. Leysin and the Pic Chaussy. Snowfalls are so frequent in this region that it is necessary to clear the roofs daily. Great Colonial Exploitations. The coconut tree. In Guadeloupe, important coconut trees are planted for the sake of exporting coconuts. Picking coconuts is not to everyone's ability. A few coconut specimens. The green coconut, when cut, releases a lightly sweetened milk. …very pleasing to drink. The interior of the fruit also encloses a sort of cream, which thickens at around eight days and makes up the kernel of the coconut, or the "copra." To save a drowning person. The classic rescue. Generally, this is the way someone must be grabbed. The drowner is pulled out of the water and laid face down against the ground. The patient should be lifted in this way to make them expel water they've swallowed. The head will rest on the arms to allow water to escape the mouth. Then with rhythmic pressure we practice artificial breathing. Moroccan visions. In the Bled. The Moroccan village is an agglomeration of reed huts. Life here is very primitive. Here is, for example, a picturesque butchery. Commerce sometimes takes place in the open desert. While the woman prepares the couscous… the man guards his flocks. Only a Senegalese comes in passing to disturb this solitude with comical dancing. Zoology. The Northern Crested Newt (continued). The Newt finds a fierce enemy in the larva of the diving beetle which gives battle with it mercilessly… where it usually finds death.
