3 On the other hand. a girl can make a
very s:mple costume look smart and
dressy by the addition of a lot ot
small "fixings" dear to the feminine
heart. This year it is the stock which
makes the style.
Once upon a time there was a real
girl who knew how to dress her neck
I properly. She was a sort of fairy
r princess and could transform any old
shoppy suit or frazzled frock into a
dream of beauty just by touching it
up with a new collir. She could make
her collars herself and make then to
fit! She could take a piece of linen
and turn it into a beautiful embroid
ered collarette, or a piece of lace and
transform it into a jabot. She was al
ways delightful to look upon. When
she married a nice man she lived hap
pily ever afterward-"because she did
not have to spend every dollar he ma:e
on clothes in order to look well.
The girl who is going to wear one
plain, dark. neat broadeloth suit the
whole winter through can relieve the
aching longing for lovely things and
the (lesire for variety which tills her
heart by having at least a dozen stocks
with which to transform it. For the
(Iressiest occasions she will have an
elaixorate jabot of lace, robbed from
her last years bail frock and dyed
coffee color. This jabot she will build
upon a foundation of mousseline and
attach to a collar of lace over mousse
line. Where the two are joined she
will wind a little. smar,' French Low
of pale blue chiffon. Then she will
embroider or spangle the collar to suit
her own fancy or her own complexicn.
She will not pay .14) f he
fancy lace and ' e collars and cuffs,
but wil and embroider them her
! , and will then attach to them
the plisse mull frills now so smart and
fetching. Out of scrim, butchers' linen
and other heavy fabric she will manu
facture herself a dozen turnovers, to
be embroidered or tatted in different
shades to match her shirt waists. She
will not neglect to provide herself with
a set of mode kid collars and cuffs to
be worn with her riding habit, and
with a fine, soft scarf of English crepe,
so diaphanous and fioating that each
breath of air will mean possibilities of
grace in every line of i.. Every waist
collar to match or harmonize with it
bin color and texture; and these she
will keep fresh and dainty i-1 a satin
lined box. When she has quite com
pleted her own inlay of collars, col
larettes and jabots she will begin Inak
ing other fancy collars and collarettes
a for her girl friends for Christmas,
knowing that, like gloves and hand
kerchiefs, nobody can have too many
Sof them and that they are invariably
a welcome gift.
nThe prettiest fancy collars have rows
gof tiny chiffon roses about them. These
e are made by cutting strips of the chif

How Milk Helps. ]
Milk as a feed. when combined with
ot'her feeds, has a vely much larger
feeding value than when fed by itself.
It also increases the value of the
other feed. Just how this is, the
scientists have not yet worked out.
Thus an experiment was made in feed
ing 100 ponnds of skim milk to pigs
weighing about 125 pounds. That skim
milk, when fed alone, made five pounds
of pork. Then 100 pounds of corn was
fed alone, and' that made ten pounds
of pork. That would indicate-that 10)
pounds of corn would make fifteen
pounds of pork. But when the two
were fed together the experimenters
were surprised to find that they made
eighteen pounds of pork. or three
pounds more than could be explained.
Thus it is evident that milk in bal
ancing a food makes it po-sible for the
animal to use it to better advantage
than when the grain is used alone.

hens are wholly"unproiltable to keep.
Cocks as well as hens eat a,.:t'of

the price. e
Large, loose-feathered hens of the
Cochin or. Brahma type lay small eggs. S
and but few of them. They are also
large eaters and poor ringers.
Close-feathered, medium-sized hens
of the Leghorn type are non-sitters,

It costs nearly as much to keep a hen

one that lays 130).
Fowls should not be fed near the

Fowis roosting in trees and open

Clean Grain and Chopped Fodder.
In preparing food for horses it is
important that grain should be properly
cleaned. In a ease in which. after a
severe droilth, it was unavoidable to
feed oats containing tares and other
leguminous seeds, symptoms of lathly
rus poisoning were noticed in a number
of horses. The attacks were frequent
ly severe and sometimes fatal. When
the oats were properly cleaned this
trouble entirely ceased.
Cleaning further increases the dens
Ity of the oats by removing mineral
matter and dust, which may sometimes
induce attacks of intestinal obstruc
tions, colic. etc. No advantage appears
to be gained by grinding the grain, as
horses, excepting old ones, prefer to
crush It themselves.
For the last five years a prominent
horseman has chopped the coarse fod
ders, using a ration of equal parts of
hay and straw, and this practice has
been found tlye iost protitable for sev
eral reasons. Thus, straw may be
made to foral an Integral part of the
ration, and the proportions of hay and
straw may ob' accurately regulated.
Horses waste much less of such fodl
der. especially if some other material
than straw is used for the tcddin:g.
