TASTES IN PERFUMES
STRONG 8CENTS ARE NOT CON

The first perfume came to us in the
Bowers. The perfumer, like the mu
sician and the painter, tries to copy
nature to please the senses of man.
The first to discover the art of per
fumery were the natives of the Orient.
Their ancient civilization was not
alone responsible for this. These na
tions cultivate all things which delight
the senses. The taste in perfume
among various races differs exceed
The first perfume was obtained by
burning aromatic gums and woods.
The word itself is derived from "per,"
through, and "fuming," smoke.
Pefumery was studied by the vari
ous nations which in turn held the
scepter of civilization.
The Hebrews when In captivity
learn3d the art from the Egyptians;
the Romans from the Greeks, and the
western nations from the Romans.
With the fall of Rome the art was for
gotten, and was rediscovered during
the conquests of the crusaders in the
The excessive use of perfume by
refined people in Europe during the
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries was
to counteract the unpleasant odors
which abounded in those days.

AIS USUAL BAD LUCK
BY JULIA FRYE.
"Yes. of course, I had a lovely
time." Julia shook the evening dress
that she lifted from her trunk a little
vindictively. "You may observe, sis
ter, dear, that this creation doesn't
show any signs of hard wear, nor do
any of my other dancing frocks. If
you'll pardon the trite remark. I have
returned home a sadder but a wiser
girl. I have learned a few wholesome
truths, though I must admit that I
found them rather unpleasant at first.
"I'll just give you a little account
of my visit to the city and then it
won't be necessary for me to point a
"Looking back now, I feel like smil
ing at the pitiful egotism which led
me to half expect a phalanx of young
men at the train to meet me. Some
bow, I got the idea from the flattering
remarks of at least a half dozen of
those who honored our porch with
their presence last summer and prr
vious summers that my advent in the
city would be to them a source of the
keenest delight. Strangely enough,
therefore, my arrival created not even
a ripple of excitement.
"If lt hadn't been for dear old Mrs.
Gray, there wouldn't have been one
friendly face to greet me as I stepped
oft the train. Even she was fuller of
ber own affairs than of mine. She
said she had some errands to do, and
asked me if I would mind going with
ber to the shopping district. Of
course, I said I'd like to go wish her.
but after we had passed a whole af
ternoon pricing toweling and kitchen
ware in the basements of three de
partment stores, I made up my mind
that when I wished to see the shops
I'd try to go without Mrs. Gray.
"I wa3 glad when we got to her
apartment finally, to find that my
Lrunk had come, for I was anxious to
put on something pretty for the eve
ning in case there should be callers.
[ might just as well have taken my
ease in the negligee that Mrs. Gray
suggested, for our evening together
was uninterrupted. I began to think
that maybe some of the cards I had
sent to my summer fri3nds-summer
friends is such a good name, dear, for
those careless young men who grace
our tennis court and swimming beach
and decorate our porch during the
heated season-had gone astray. So I
decided to call up Ted Harris and tell
him I was in town.
"His mother answered the phone.
She said Ted had told her that I was
coming and she thought he expected
to see me the next week. He was so
busy socially, she informed me, that
he had very little time. Indeed, he
waa leading a cotillion at the Fort
nightly assembly that very evening.
"I thought Ted's mother rather fe
line, but the cotillion sounded good to
me. and I had a fascinating mental
picture of myself moving through the
mazes of that delightful dance two
weeks later. I remembered how Ted
was always descanting upon the per
fection -of the floor and the beautiful
music at his club, and I was sure he
would want me to dance there once
at least. I was awfully glad my eve
ning gowns weren't In the least bit
"Well, to relieve your curiosity at
once, let me tr'- you that Ted called
me up the next day and was most
cordial. He told me how glad he
would be to see me and how sorry he
was that he had every evening taken
for weeks in advance. That was just
his usual bad luck, he declared. But
he said I must surely have luncheon
with him downtown. I replied that 1
*ould if J could, but that my time was
very full. * He said I simply must
squeeze the luncheon in and he'd call
me up in a day or two and arrange a

I heard from him no more and prob
ably will not aga'n until he appears
upon our veranda bright and smiling
seme morning next summer, amiably I

mobile or even the early apples in
"After 1 had been In town a week
Clayton Rogers called me up and said
he'd been trying to get around to see
me, but that he was rushed to pieces
with business. 'I'd like to get up a
theater party for you,' he told me. I
gasped with suppressed surprise and j
pleasure. 'But,' he added, Tm going
east tonight.' 1 thanked him warmly, j
"The Todd boys called one evening
jusr before I left. They talked of the
delights of our country home and told
me how eagerly they were anticipat

They invited roe-now, sister, don't
get excited-to walk around the lake

"John Boyd actually took me to a
lecture and Mr. Slater gave me a nerv
ous shock by inviting me to the tn ea
ter. But he chose the evening of the
day I was leaving the city. John How
ard and Mr. Bentley weren't heard
rrom at all.
"I had a good time, though, for Mrs.
Gray is active in all sorts of interest
ing things, and I went to her club and
her church and helped a little with
her numerous charities and learned a
lot. But I think the most important
lesson I learned was my true value as
a winter friend and as a summer
friend. Do you know, dear, I'm awfully
glad to get back to nice old Tom, who
really seems to like me all the year
round!"-Chicago Daily News.

COMSAT POULTRY YARD FOES
Some Essential Measures Outlined by
Expert Poultrymcn for Control of
Insect parasites are the cause of a
great deal of annoyance and loss to
poultrymen. Some essential measures
as outlined by George M. Turpin for
their control are:
Have the poultry houses separated
from all other farm buildings.
Have all the Interior fixtures of the
poultry houses, such as roost-poles,
nest boxes, feed hoppers, dropping
doards, etc. removed so that every
part of the Interior can be readily
cleared and sprayed.
Keep a good dust bath to which the
fowls may have access at all times
of the day. Common road dust with
fine ashes and powdered sulphur or
air-slacked lime added is excellent
The road dust should be gathered
during dry weather for use during
Spray the coops and fixtures with
a good whitewash twice each year,
adding two pounds of salt and one
fourth gallon of crude carbolic acid
to 'every 50 galons of the spraying
Setting hens should have access to
a good dust bath such as mentioned
above. If lice are found later on the
chicks, rub lard in the feathers of
the head and throat, and in bad cases
also under the whigs.
SHIPMENT OF BABY CHICKS
Little Fellows May Be Sent Long Dio
tancec by Express Without Dan
ger or Discomfort.
One of the most Interesting branch
es of the poultry business is the ship
ping of baby chicks hundreds, even
thousands, of miles, and yet have them
arrive in good condition for further
growth and development. By ship
ping direct from the incubator when
the chicks are one day old, advantage
is taken of that period in the life of
the chicks when nature intended that
they should be without food, and they
can therefore without Injury or dis
comfort be sent long distances by ex
press under any conditions of climate.
Chicks when first hatched require
neither food or drink. Indeed, such
I ls harmful. During the first seven
? ty-two hours the chick's life is sus
tained by the assimilation of the yolk,
for the embryo chick ls developed
! from the white of the egg, and just be
! fore hatching the yolk is drawn up
i into its system and furnishes all the
; food any chick should have for the
j first three days of Its life. It is dur
ing this period that chicks can be
' shipped as far as express can take

! HEN MANURE AS FERTILIZER)
Has Greater Value Than Any Other
Kind Used on Farm-Should
Be Well Taken Care Of:
Hen manure as a fertilizer has
greater value than any other fertiliz
er on the farra. It is generally sup-j
posed by some poultrymen that the
manure will pay for taking care of
the hens, but this depends much on
how it ia kept. The dropping boards
under the roosts should be kent cov
ered with some absorbent to preserve
tho strength of the droppings.
Land plaster or South Carolina rock
is good. Me ver use wood ashes or
;ime with the poultry droppings. The
, .mmonia or nitrogen would be set
free, and part of the value ot' the fer
?ilizer lost. The droppings should not|
be applied on a growing crop, or cov
ered soil. Use lt on corn by putting
a handful on each hill at the time of
rast hoeing. It should be kept under
cover until used.
Killing a Turkey.
The proper way to kill a turkey ls
to tie its feet together, hang on a
pole, then cut the throat and allow to
bleed freely. Dry pick, leaving head
and wings on. After picking, dip in
hot water and then in cold. Thia will
sive the skin a fresher took.
