Missing No Opportunity.
. A large, good natured man was
greatly attracted to a little girl in the
dining room of an up-town hotel the
other day. She was about two and a
half years old, was beginning to run
about and talk a good deal, and also
appeared, to be at home in the hotel.
After smiling at him across the din
ing room and making friends with him
at a distance he accosted her in the
hall. He asked her the regulation
questions put by strangers *o children,
all of which she answered as promptly
as her baby fashion would permit.
Finally the man shook hands with
her and said: "You are a nice little
girl. Shall I bring you a box of candy
The little one looked puzzled a mo
ment, then spoke up brightly: st
"No; 'oo better doe det it nowl* / \
She got the candy that evening. /

RAISING DAIRY COWS.
If dairymen would depend upon rais
ing their dairy animals themselves, the
result would be much more satisfac
tory, as a rule; than to buy from stock
men or speculators in a haphazard
way any "pickups" that are offered.
In order to.begin right, calves should
be selected whose grandams on both
sides had a,good record at the pail or
churn; then there will be a reasonable
hope that the calf will evolve into a

But if the dairyman deems the rear
ing of calves only a "side issue," and
as a result gives only indifferent treat
ment, he might just as well buy his
own cows; for a stunted calf is a piti
able object, and will never fulfill its
destiny, no matter what its after treat
ment may be.
Extravagance iu the feeding of the
calf is pardonable - parsimoniousness,
never. Extravagant feeding-it would
bz so called by many-means fresh
milk from the cow or new milk for at
least three weeks after the birth of the
calf; and the calf that is not worth
what new milk it can consume during
the first few weeks of its life Is not
worth the rearing. Let me emphasize
that the first weeks of the calf's exis
tence determines its value later on.
FATTENING CHICKENS IN COOPS.
Although the cramming machine in
the hands of an expert will probably
give the best results in finished product,
small coops for fattening chickens will
be found the most profitable by most
chicken raisers. These coops are ussd
very largely in England and have been
adopted successfully by the Canadian
Government. The accompanying il
lustration shows a coop divided into
three parts, which will bold a dozen,
chickens. These coops are built of
lathe and one inch square pieces for
the framework. Bach part is two feet
long, sixteen incnes wide and twenty
inches high, which experiments have
shown to be the best size. /
The coops are placed' out of doors
In the sLade, either under trees,or in
an open shed, but in severe weather
should be placed in a closed building.
A small V-shaped trougjy is used to
hold the feed, and waterPis supplied in
a cup, which may be, fastened to the
slats. Young chickens from four to
six months pf ag?f are commonly used
for fattening. About four are placed
in a coop, w/here they are fed three,
times daily, as much as they v'll c-.t
o.( ground grain, chiefly oais. Al or
near the end of the period of fattening,
which lasts from four to six weeks, a
COOP yoa FATTENING CHICKENS.
little tallow is added to the feed, which
at all times ls mixed with skim milk.
In a trial with 100 chickens, Profes
sor James W. Robinson, of Canada,
found that they almost doubled in
weight in thirty-six days of feeding.
For every pound of increase in live
weight they consumed 5.44 pounds
ground oats and C.43 pounds skim
milk. At $1 per 100 pounds for ground
oats and twenty cents per 100 pounds
of skimmilk, the cost was nearly six
and three-quarter cents per pound gain
for feed only.
While the increase in weight was
nearly 100 per cent,, this gain was
mostly of flesh. Three chickens dressed
before fattening weighed, with feath
ers off, eight pounds and eight ounces.
After this period of fattening, three
chickens, of the same quality at the
start, weighed, with feathers off, six
teen pounds four ounces, their bones
one pound eleven ounces, and the edible
meat seven pounds six ounces. Not
only was there a gain of about 200 per
cent in edible meat, but it was of much
better quality. If all fowls, when fat
tened for the market, are confined for
a month in coops of this kind and fed
in a similar manner, they will return
a much higher price and greater profit.
Paint all the buildings and tools,
and thus keep out the moisture and
double the life of the woodwork.
When you get a new brush hold it
with the hair end up and the handle
down, spread out the bristles and pour
in a spoonful of good varnish, allowing
it to become dry. This has a tendency
to prevent the brush shedding its bris
tles when it is used, and also keeps it
from shrinking and falling to. pieces.
A cheap and durable paint is made
of Venetian red, linseed oil and lacquer.
Lacquer is a liquid drier, and ls used
for the purpose of not only making
a better paint, but for causing the paint
to dry more readily. The more lacquer
put into paint the sooner it will dry.
As soon as you are through painting,
wipe the brush clean, and wrap it in a
piece of paper. Then hang it in a
small, deep vessel containing linseed
oil. In this way it will keep clean and
always ready for use. It is a mistake
to keep brushes in water, ns it will
not preserve them so well as in oil. and
does not keep them soft and pliable.
The Bread We Eat.
The question of the relative nutritive
value of different kinds of bread is dis
cussed, from the scientific point of
view, in an article in the current Har
per's Weekly by Harry Snyder, chem
ist of the United States Agricultural
Experiment Station of the University
of Minnesota. Some recent tilals made
by the Department of Agriculture have
shown some interesting results, says
Mr. Snyder. A number of men in
sound health-worSdng men, students,
athletes, thin and fat men-were
chosen as subjects. In one set of tests
the men were fed for several days on
graham bread and milk, then white
bread was substituted for the graham.
The conclusion reached was that the
graham flour contained the highest and
the patent flour the lowest percentage
if total protein (glutinous matter), but
that the proportions of digestible pro
tein and available energy in the patent
apur were larger than in either the en? i
tire wheat or the' graham flour. On
the whole, the question seems to be
sett lid in- favor r* white bread. ?J .?, I

Washington, Special.-In the postal
trial the government introduced fur
ther evidence tending to show the
relations > existing between Machen,
Groff brothers and the Lorenzs, in
connection with the sale of letter-box
fasteners to the government. Several
witnesses from Cleveland and Toledo
having connection with bank institu
tions testified to various deposits by
the Lorenzs of checks of D. B. Groff
for large amounts and to certain debts
made against their individual ac
counts. N. H. Baumgartner, Mach
en's brother-in-law, secretary of the
Deposit Truut Company, Westminister,
Md., also testified as to Machen's de
posits with that company. A consid
erable portion of the day was taken
up by arguments by counsel on both
sides concerning the materiality and
admissibility of certain evidence of
fered. The Subject of the coaching of
witnesses by Postoffice Inspector May

sion of which Mr. Douglas, for the de
fense, said he also would include
Postoffice ' Inspector Gregory in the

FAMOUS MAN DEAD
George Francis Train Dies After a
BE ACCOMPLISHED MANY THINGS
Starting in an Humble Capacity, tie
Forged Ahead to the Front Ranks
in the World,
New York, Special.-George Francis
Train, who died here Monday night,
probably was one of the most pic-/
turesque figures in the history 6t
America. Only a year ago, when-he
was then 74 years old, he dictated the
reminiscences of his extraordinary ca
reer, and the result was published in
book form. Summarized An his own
curious fashion, this contained infor
mation about his life:/
"Shipping clerk, li; manager, 18;
partner in Train & Co., 20, with an
income of $10,000; established the firm
of George Francis Train & Co., Mel
bourne, Australia, 1853; agent White
Star Line, income $90,000; started 40
clippers to California in 184b; built
railroad connecting Erle with Ohio and
Mississippi; pioneered the first street
railway in Europe, America, Australia
and England; built first" Pacific rail
way, 1862-1869; owned 5,000 lots in
Omaha, worth $3,0PC??KK>; been in 15
jails without a crime."
Mr. Train's pifrents, with several
brothers and sisters, died at New Or
leans from yellow fever, and his child
hood home was on his grandmother's
farm in Massachusetts. Not long after
entering the Boston shipping house
founded by his cousin, he went abroad
and from that time on he wandered all
over the globe.
- In 1873 he began a career as lecturer
and agitator, and held public debates
with some of the ablest orators in the
country. A few years ago he made a
trip around the world in 60 days, say
ing afterwards that his psychic force
enabled him to overcome all obstacles.
When Mills' Hotel No. 1 was opened
several years ago, Mr. Train went there
to live, and since then made it his
headquarters. One of the features of
his eventful life was his admiration for
children, and for years a familiar spec
tacle in Madison Square was "Citizen"
Train on a bench surrounded by a
group of little ones.
Mr. Train's last adventure occurred
last summer, when he was quarantined
at Stamford, Conn., in a smallpox iso
lation camp and threatened that city
with a suit for $50,000 damages. He
war the author of at least 50 books
and frequently asserted that his
psychic power eventually would make
him the most potent sovereign of
Coffin Factory Burned.
Burlington, N. C., Special.-One
>f the most disastrous fires in
the history of Burlington originated in
the factory building of the Burlington
Coffin Company of this place about
10 o'clock Tuesday morning. The
plant consisted of three l?rge buildings
besides the engine and boiler house,
dry kilns, storing sh^ds, etc., and w?s
one of the largest business enterpris
es of Burlington, as well as one of
the principal'casket factories south of
Baltimore, and has been doing a very
prosperous business. Owing to the in
tensely cold weather this morning,
work in the factory building was not
resumed. The origin of the fire is un
known, for when the fire was discov
ered the entire second story of the
factory building was in flames, which
soon reached every part of the build
ing and Rpread to the engrinp and bollix
sr house, the dry kilns, and to an im
mense quantity of lumber on the
yards. The factory was equipped with
a very complete outfit of machinery,
most of it being of the latest and most
improved designs, all of which was
lost, together with the ent're stock of
patterns, coffin bits and machine
room. An immense quantity of lumber
was in stock, more than 250,000 feet
of which were burned, together with
a large ?tock of covered casket shells.
The total loss is estimated at from
$25,000 to $30,000, with about $10,000
Insurance on the factory building p.nd
the machinery. It is understood tnat
the company will rebuild, probably
upon an enlarged plan, at as early a
date as practicable.

and will n*jt give her a farthing? /
The woes of the lovers touched the"?
hearts -gr many in the audience, but
only one person proved really equal to
th? o?caslon. This was a worthy and
wealthy baker, who had actually been
moved to tears by the distressing,
scenes on the stage. At last his heart
overflowed, and the moment the rich
uncle vanished with a bitter sneer at
his niece's folly on his lips, he rushed
from his seat to the footlights, and,
taking a well-filled purse from his
pocket, handed it to the astonished '
"Here, take thi?-you'll find a good
dowry in it-and have nothing more
to do with that wretched miser."
Every one in the theater roared at
the good fellow's simplicity and gen
erosity, but he could not see that he
had done anything unusual, and, as
he refused to take back the purse, th?
heroine, with a smile, laid it on a
table, and the play went on.

PLAN9 THAT^/ENT WRONG.
Gnowing How/Hard lt ts to Drive
Folkp Into Matrimony.
Once uD#h a time, before everybody
had learned to attend strictly to his
own affairs, a man and a maid were in
love/with each other, but, though this
wiiS patent to all their friends, neither
fit them knew lt. However, their
' friends said unanimously: "We will
demonstrate it to them and write a
triumphant Q. E. D. upon their wed
Therefore, the maid never was in
vited anywhere that she did not find
I the man invited also; nor was the man
invited anywhere but that he found
the maid likewise a guest. Further
more, the man always was detailed to
take the maid in to dinner, and they
could not so much as glance at each
other without everybody eue having
an errand out of the room, and society
b?came a vast manufactory of oppor
tunities for them to rt vol in each
other's company alone and undis
turbed. Now, before this had time to
become a habit with them, both the
man and the maid penetrated the dark
Whereupon the maid tossed her
head, saying: "They needn't think I
have only one chance," and immedi
ately betrothed herself to an impeculi
ous fortune hunter whose only rec
ommendation was his title.
And thereupon the man hastily mar
ried himself to a grass widow from
Chicago, whose reputation, they do
say, was responsible for the big fire.
Consequently all their friends nod
ded their heads sagely, and whispered
to each other, "Didn't I tell you so?"

DR. LLEWELLYN JORDAN, Medical
Examiner of the U. S. Treasury De
partment, graduate of Columbia College,
and who served three years at West Point, |
has the following to say of Peruna:
"Allow me to express my grati- \
tude to you for the benefit derived
from your wonderful remedy. One
short month has brought forth a
vast change and 1 now consider
myself a well man after months of
suffering. Fellow sufferers, Peruna
will cure you."
A constantly increasing number of physi
cians prescribe Peruna in their practice. It I
lias proven its merits so thoroughly that |
even the doctors have overcome their preju
dice against so-called patent medicines and I
recommend it to their patients.
Peruna occupies a unique position in !
medical science. It is the only internal
systemic catarrh remedy known to the
medical profession to-day. Catarrh, as ?
every one will admit, is the cause of one
half the disease which afflicts mankind.
Catarrh and catarrhal diseases afflict one
half of the people of United States.

WAS TOO FAR AWAY.
Young Maiden's Dream of Romance
Maisie was the daughter of a rich
merchant, and therefore she could
afford to be romantic. To her most
young men with black mustaches ard
an inclination to cheat the barber of
his just dues in the matter of hair
were heroes of a high order. Papa
Spillkins' cashier was this sort of
young man, and Maisie decided that
her heart and both her 6% hands
were his alone. One day she met him
in the street, but he passed her by
with an abstracted air.
"Papa," she said sadly that even
ing, "I saw that handsome cashier of
yours this afternoon. It is sad to
think that he should be chained to the
dull routine of an office. He is a poet,
I am sure. He has such a heavenly,
far-away look in his eyes."
"Yes," snapped old Spillkins an
grily, "and that far away look isn't
confined to his eye. It's all over him
just at present. He bolted this after
noon with as much of my money as
he could lay his hands upon."
The promises of Providence are to
those who dig for their bread and not

Slaughter on American Railroads.
'The British Parliament would not

bor member of Parliament, in a re
cent London speech. His words are
emphasized by the fact that last oat
iirday thirty-two people were killed
on our railroads by accidents that
might have been prevented.,
"The slaughter on our own rail
roads is bad enough," said Burns,
"but it is child's play to what goes
on in America. The casualty list of
the American railways equals that of
a first class war. *
"I have been accused of calling in
dustrial America a slaughter house,
and if you ask me for proof I point

men Who lose their lives In the

Catarrh is a systemic disease curalle
only by systemic treatment. A remedy that
cures catarrh must aim directly at the de
pressed nerve centres. This is what Pe
Peruna immediately invigorates the nerve
centres which "ive vitality to the mucous !
