SDMMEUmG THE PETS.
HOW THEY ARE LODGED, BOARDED
AND CARED FOR.
Families Relieved of Embarrassinc n
cambmnces Some Things Worth Knrtw
Ya About Dojrs and Other Animals.
An InteiH-iew -with a Specialist.
- In the su miner season, when so many
ainilies eh at up their city residences
and go to iVie seaside or country, the
disposition to be made of the family pet,
he it dog, cat or bird, is often a most
embarrassing question. It is often a
nuisance to tak e it along. Humanity de
mands that if left behind it must be
properly cared ir. The numerous fanci
ers, dealers and .factors of domestic pets
in this city fully appreciate this situa
tion of affairs, and in summer notify the
public by signs on their establishments
that with them can bo found "summer
board for domestic pets."
A LABtfE BUSIESS.
"The business is quite an extensive
one," said a keeper of one of tbsse 'pet
hotels," "yet it is not as great as we
would like it to be. 1 think that the
keeping of a house cat or dog is getting
less and less popular with people in or
dinary circumstances. The wetilthy
people V;ep them because they havx) the
room and servants to look after them.
The wealthy, though, generally own
their country or beach places and send
their pets there, so wo get very few
boarders from them.
""While people in ordinary circum
stances are giving up dogs and cats as
house pets they are growing fonder and
fonder of song birds. Dealers who take
birds to board are now doing a rushing
business. People of moderate means
hotels where they would not be allowed J
to take their pets, so ic is lrom tnem we
get most of our boarders. One Sixth av
enue dealer is boarding nearly one hun
dred oanaries and many parrots and
mockingbirds. Fifty cents a week is
the charge for small birds and seventy
five cents for parrots. We charge 10 a
month for a dog's board, and $7 a month
"People who value their domestic pets
Bhould be very careful how they care
for them during the summer. Give
your birds plenty of rape seed, and as
little large seed as possible. Slip a piece
of green Btuff between the bars of the
cage occasionally. Also give them a bit
of apple once a day. Applo is a natural
tonio to birds. Keep your cats indoors
as much as possible, and brush their
coats thoroughly overy day. Feed them
lightly, giving them fish and milk dishes,
bnt no meat
HOW TO CARE FOR DOQS.
"There is not one owner of a dog in
ten who knows how to care for the ani
mal The dog should bo kept aa quiet
as possible throughout the heat of the
day, but he should not be chained or
worried with restraint He should be
fed lightly and only twice a day, and
change should be made in his food fre
quently. Don't give him meat Give
him a bone to chew once in a while.
For staple food give him milk dishes and
vegetables. A great many people will
tell yon a dog won't eat vegetables. If
a dog turns away from vegetables the
first time take them away at once. Give
him a fresh supply at the next meal. He
will bo hungry enough to oat them then,
and soon will take to them as naturally
as to meat
"Dogs should frequently bo washed in
cold water containing a little alcohol.
Use common yellow soap. If you must
muzzle your dog in summer, don't keep
him without a muzzle all tho re6t of the
year. Put it on him for a half hour or
bo overy day, and he will get so used to
it that when he has to wear it steadily
it won't worry him. If peoplo would do
this for thoir pots thero would be fower
so called mad doga. Dogs are very like
ly to have a rush of blood to tho head.
That gives them a running fit They
froth at tho mouth aud pooplo think
they arc mad. I never saw a mad dog,
and I have been handling dogs for fifty
years. When a dog gets one of these
running fits ho is harmless, and if his
head is ducked into a pail of cold watei
ho will quickly como around."
"At this time," said a South Fifth
avenue bird fancier, "not ono quarter of
tho birds and animals here are mine. Most
of thorn are boarders. Thero aro, bo

and grown daughter had their hands full
in coring for, fooding and doctoring the
menagerie in tho summer, but as regu
lar custom was light ho found it so
profitable that from year to year he in
creased his facilities. He charges for
birds from 23 to 30 cents a week, for
cats $2. and for dogs and monkeys from
$1 to $5 a week.
"That St Bernard over there," said
tho fancier, "will eat as much as you or

made by a petal from an Annunciation
lily it would not gleam more purely than
the record of Sister JL Cecilia, of the
Georgia order of the Sisters of Mercy.
She labored for years in the schools,
marine hospitals and infirraariea of Sa
vannah, and waged a brave war for life
and health among the yellow fever pa
tients of all conditions, colors and relig
ious creeds in the last devastating epi
demic in that city. When she removed
to Atlanta abont ten yeara ago, with the
purpose of founding an infirmary to b
conducted by the sisters of her order, she
was pressed for money and thwarted by
opposition. Her purpose was clear and
she did not falter. She begged much of
the money for her project, traveling
many weary miles in this country and in
Coba, and she accomplished her end.

THE MAN N THE MOON.
Queer Ideas VTUIcfc Different Nations ot
the Karth Hold About Him.
The superstition of the man in the moon
is one of the most ancient, as well as tba
most popular and widespread of any of the
legions of folk and fairy stories that have
been handed down to us from the early
ages of the world. Like all other popular
traditions, there are many versions of tha
story which is related to account for the
singular appearances which all have noticed
on the face of the moon. In England, the
United States and Italy tho full moon is
supposed to present a well defined picture
of a man leaning on a fork, with his body
inclining toward the east Uhat is when the
moon is straight hi the south).
The broad light spot to his right, as he
stands facing the observer, is supposed to
be a burning brush pile, put there with
the wretch guilty of tho awful deed to re
mind him of the crime of burning brush
on the Sabbath day. The Bible is sup
posed to give a key to this supentition
(see Numbers xv, 32). In Wales, Scotland,
Ireland, Germany and some of the south
ern states of our own country the lines
and spots on the moon's face are supposed
to be a pretty accurate picture of the face
of a man, something like the comic faces
pictured in tho calendars to represent the
The Jews, on account of some story in
the Talmud, believe the face to be that of
Jacob, the old patriarch. The South Af
ricans speak of "the gorilla in the moon,"
and always declare that the picture repre
sents a gorilla climbing a mountain, carry
ing a lnxore club in his hand. The na
tives of the Amazon river couutry take tne
picture to be that of a tapir on a foraging
expedition; tho long straight line, which
the English, the Italians and the people of
the United States take to be n rake, and
which the Africans say is the gorilla's
staff, is a palm tree with the Amazonians,
which the tapir is tryiug to pull over in or
der to get at the fruit. In most countries of
the Orient the picture is supposed to be that
of a lion, which Alburtus says "has his
heade toward the west and his taylo toward
In Persia, Siam, farther India and China
the figure is supposed to be a good repre
sentation of two lions engaged in combat.
Bishop Wilkins, in his book called "Tho
Moon a Habitable World," says: "As for
the forme of the spots on the moon, somme
thinke they represent a man, and poets
guess that it is the boy, Endymion, whoso
company Luna loves so well she take him
with her." All theso odd superstitions
and fancies seem to center on the Biblical
passage cited above. St. Louis Republic

A Brick House Under Sail.
An extraordinary craft lay at anchor
one Sunday morning in the mouth of tho
Great Kills, Staten Island. The fishermen
gazed at her in amazement. She is some
what primitive in form, for it is evident
that her designer took her lines from the
model of Noah's ark. But on deck ftbe de
parts perhaps a little from the original in
the building which is erected there. This
building is a red brick house, but it is said
that the bricks are male of wood to keep
the vessel within strictly orthodox line.
In appearance the thing is a schooner
rigged house, one of the queerest lookig
affairs ever seen with sails.
But the ftranget thing about her is her
speed. She can travel at a rapid rate, al
though she is simply n hue scott. Ono

leaving the Kills she paet within hailing
distance of a boat with a jolly crew of an

pants of the ark one of the rod and reel
men shooted to him:

ALL AROUND THE HOUSE.
A Dainty Idea in SpatU-rWork Cnrtaiaa
trith a Border of Feathery Tera.
Beautiful soft curtains for a bedroom or
boudoir may be made from fine Swiss mus
lin decorated with a border of feathery
ferns. A writer in Decorator and Furnisher
tells that all that is required to make them
U muslin enough for the curtains, a tooth
brush, a fine tooth comb, somo jet black
Ink and a quantity of ferns, smoothly and
thoroughly pressed. To make the curtains
first measure off the required length ol
Swiss muslin for each window, nllowing
tnough to fall gracefully to the floor. A
border of ferns is then made in "spatter
work" down each curtain.
Spread an old sheet smoothly on the
floor and tnck it tightly and flrmly. Then
lay a length of the curtain material down
upon it and pin it securely to the sheet at
each end. stretching it enough to prevent
wrinkling or creasing. Next take your
pressed ferns and arrange them gracefully
down the edge of the curtain to form a
border. They may bo fastened in place by
pins or fino gimp tacks. Cover all the cur
tain except tho border where the ferns are
fastened with an old sheet, au old tablo
cover or anything that will protect it. Dip
a tooth brush or fine nail brush into somo
deep block ink, then comb tho ink out over
the fern border with a fino tooth comb.
This will mnko tiny black spots or "spat
ters" of ink all over the ferns and border.
Do it as evenly as possible. When you
have finished leave till tuoronghly dry.
Then carefully lift the pins from the ferns,
remove them and take tho curtain from
the floor. You will then have a dark bor
der band with pure white ferns out upon
it. You must do each curtain separately.
These curtulns will look lovely when
finished. They will also bo found very
serviceable, as they can be washed and
ironed without fading. But no soda nor
bleaching compound should be used in tho
washing. They may bo hung with whito
oak poles only, or a lambrequin. Tidien,
pillow shams, bureau covers and bod
spreads may be made to correspond.
A Handsome X.lnon Insertion.
A pretty insertion in made by drawing
out a number of threads for about three
quarters of an inch. Secure tho threads
in groups with eithor Vutt-nholoor hem
stitch in groups of five threads. Theso aro
to bo worked in "spiders" Iiko those em
ployed in other laco and guipure, using
four groups for ono "spidor." Fasten
on at ono end with a long needloful of
flneor medium flux thread. Pans the needle
over two groups and under 1; turn book
