Her eyes-she kept upon a book.
'Twas "Isabelle", or sonetlhing like,
And she w:ts burlIled in the same.
I wonder who tem doeue she is
And what she is, and what's ter name,
This city life is pretty flerve!
Just see that poor (hi woman there.
She has a basket full of truck,
And In her face are seams of care.
P'erhaps she's going down to scrub
In some skyseraper by the lake
IProne on her hands and knees, to rub
Away the filth the heedless make!
Al, here's a bloke! Just sniff this
Great snooks, ht this is tanyard air!
Hormedtimes when I sit next a smell,
It shocks my brealhfast egg for fair!

That girl is with the dark brown hair
Her cheeks are lilk wild apple bloom
That blossoms in the tangled wood,

Last evening souething happened us.

The next thinv, I was sitting in
The little brown-lhilred voiman's lap!
Well-- ys, I guess that I blushed some
In fluiding eitillibrium!
I glanced at her and huibly begged
'orgiveness for my awkward t;1
She didn't seem to he real mad,
Nor look entitemptuis at all.
And just Iefoire tiw others laughed,
I saw a twinkle in hr eye.
At that she straiglitenoed tp and Ilushed
And ' rias her face thwre swept a cloud
Of anger at 1h.- giggling < rowd!
And whet shr- si 'n.- liting glance
Around that car. it froze the mirth
Of sever-ll fetlows who were bolI
And tittercd with a quaking girth.

I'm going out to Smith's to-night.
Smith's got the swellest little flat
In all the North side-near the lake.
Hie's jolly. too. is Smith, and fat.
Somehow, I always like to go
Along with Smith to Rlogers Park.
Ifls honme is hatppy and his wife
Is blithesome as a rneadowlark.
She's what Smith's chums call, 'Swell,
And, ont theI level, she I8 bright.
Well, great horn spoon, and other things!
Now what the mischief do you think?
That brown-eyed girl I've met so much
Is Smithy's niece-her name is Brinkt
She's just come here from Tennessee
To stop awhile with Mrs. Smith!
I muffed it when she bowed to me;
She seemed some rattled, too, herself!
When we were settled, comfy like,
.Just for a quiet tete-a-tete,
She up and gave the joke" awayl
Exposed to Smith and wife the snap
Of how I landed in her lap!
Well--anyhow, I did my beet,
And Mrs. Smith she asked me out

SKIM MILK FOR HENS.
lEIgh Percentage tf Eggs Showet by
Hens on This Diet.
Concerning the valu, of skim milk
for hens the American Poultry Advo
cate has the following to say:
The West Virginia experiment sta
tion has recently made some isyste
matic test. to prove the value-of skim
milk for laying hens. The first test
covered 122 days. The 22 hens fed
skim milk laid 1,244 eggs, as compared
with 996 eggs laid by the- 22 hens fea
mash wet with water. In another test,
60 hens fed the skim-millk ration laid
862 eggs in 37 days, as compared with
632 eggs laid by a similar lot fed no
skim milk. Other tests gav'e Tabout
the pame. comparative results.
The conductors of these experiments
estimate that under the p'revailing
conditions, and with eggs selling for
20 or 25 cents a dozen, the skim miik
used for moistening the mash had a
feeding value of from 1%k to 2 cents
per quart. That milk is one ot- the
best general foods for almost all stock,
and human beings, too,:-is recognized
by everybody, and need. no special
proof. That it should have better r
suits in nutrition than just plain water
is really self-evident.
When I feed skim milk to my fowls,
I expect to get some benefit from it.
But it is a satisfaction to know that
it is worth, for feeding purposes, the
comparatively high figure of 1%k to2
cents a quart.
The exceedingly high prices of corn
will cut out any profit from the pig
feeding at present prices of pork.
Shelled corn is worth at wholesale
about 60 cents a bushel of 56 poupds
in Chicago. It takes 56 pounds to
make 10 pounds of pork. The corn is
worth 60 cents and the pork at 6%k
cents a hundred live weight is worth
65 cents. Not much profit in that.
