and have none, but as the
architectural merit of the tombs decreases
so docs the verbal decoration
increase, and with the monstrous
sculpture of the ? ighteenth century
comes the florid and overwrought periods
of the epitaph writers. You can
almost tell the date of any individual
specimen by the literary style. History
records. 1 believe, that the morals
of the eighteenth century were
anything but above reproach in Kngland,
but if Westminster is to be taken
as the test that was an age of heroic
saints and saintly heroes. Yet
that these quaint old hypocrites were
not selfdeceived is suggested by the
closing sentence of one of the epl- j
taphs of a priod following that of the
most stilted specimen. "Header," it
says, "if on nerusinu this tribute tn
a private individual thou should bo
disposed to suspect it as partial or
censure It as diffuse, know that It is
not panegyric, but history."
True Sentiment Not Wanting.
I'pon the monument of f J rare Scott,
wife of Colonel Scott, a member of
the honorable house of commons, ISM,
are engraved these words:
"lie that will give my (Jrare but what

Made only In r dear Scott,

ers."
Punning, indeed, was highly es
termed by the ancient eulogists, as instanced
in tin' < pitaph to Sir James
Fullcrton "lie <iio< 1 fuller of faith
than of f?*ar; fuller of consolation than
of pains: fuller of honor than of
lays" Vet there are not wanting
specimens of true and ingenious sentiment,
as that In the case of Mrs.
Mary Kendall, whose friendship for
Ia'kI.v Catherine Jones was such that
"she desired that even their ashes ,
after death might not he divided and
therefore ordered herself here to he i
interred where she knew that excellent
lady designed one day to rest
near the grave of her heloved and religious
mother," and also the little
marble cradle over the grave of the
daughter of James 1 . who died at the
age of three days, with versos hy
Susan Coolldge, which do not wholly
lose their pathos in spite of the fact
that they are placarded on tho walls

RAISING GEESE FOR PROFIT
Eastern Man Gives Interesting and
Miniitu n^tnllc of MIc
From Beginning.
g
I have been raising geese the last 15
years; only one breed, the Einbden,
says a writer in Baltimore American.
I prefer this because of its hardiness,
size, docility and color. The feathers
sell here for five cents above the mar.
ket price for others. I like to have
the goslings hatch in April or earlier.
This avoids the hot weather.
Hens are used for hatching. Each i?

lay again, but allowed to sit on tho
second clutch of eggs. I think geesu
better mothers than hens. They are
more solicitous, can care for a greater
number and the gander will also assist
his mate. When time is almost up
for hatching I - put the eggs in lukewarm
water and all containing live
goslings will turn. 1 think the water
softens the shell and causes a better
hatch.
Kggs from the first year's laying aro
usually not so fertile as later eggs.
l'lioy are also fewer in number, and
produce weaker goslings. (Jeese do
not fail in egg production like hens,
hut may be kept for years. If ganders
are kept longer than the third year
they usually become so cross they
cannot be allowed to run with other
fowls.
I keep the young in a small inclosure
till they can walk without turning
on their backs. Then let thorn have

sary that they bathe; bettor not. I
never leave them out in heavy rains,
for they will open their mouths and
drink enough water to drown.
As soon as fully feathered, in threo
or four months, they are ready to pick,
and may be picked every eight weeks.
After the fall picking 1 begin to feed
grain. When fully feathered they will
be ready for market. If they can
have free access to a plot of corn they
will not allow any of it to go to waste,
and will save trouble of feeding.
