Most poultry-keepers know that fowls
possess an individuality, and that they
could tell their feathered pets among

their own horses among a drove of stran

a chicken as of a horse; and yet in a

A correspondent says his fowls have

The best way of removing them is to

How Queen Victoria is Attended.

An article in Chambers' Journal says:
"In tho Lord Chamberlain's depart
merit aro the Mistress of tho Robes, with
a salary of i'iOO; the Groom of tho
Robes, with i'xoo (and a clerk, a mes
senger, and a furrier as assistants), and
night Ladies of tho Iicd-Chambor. Tho
duties of tho latter consist in waiting on
Hot Majesty for a fortnight at a timo in
rotation; thus eacli lady would bo called

Maids of Honor, who represent a very
old institution in connection with royal
ty. In 1625, shortly after his marriaco
with Henrietta, of France. :inrl,a T is
sued the follow ing rules fortheguidanco
of tho Maids: 'The Queen's Maids of
Honor are to come into tho Presenco
Chamber before 11 of the clock, urn! to
go to prayers; And after prayers to at-
tend until tho Queen bo set ni. rlimmr
Again, at 2 o'clock to return int ),
said chamber, and there to remain until
supper-time. And when thvv kI.bII h
retired into their chamber, they admitof
no m.n to eomo there, and that thnv rm
not at any time out of tlm ,.nni- u,;ilL...
leave asked of the Lord f :iimhrloin .
Maids see all theseorders concerning tho
Maids duly observed, as she will answer
to the cont rary.' Nowadays, the Queen's
Maids of Honor do not have such re
strictions placed on their liberty, and
merely take their turn, two at a time
or one month, to attend on Her Maies-
y. After these in rank stand the eisrht
Bedchamber Women, who serve in rota-
ion in tho same manner, and aro only
ixpected to figure on State occasions.
Henrietta, Duchess of Suffolk, in one of
her letters, gives an interesting account
of the duties of theso "women" in hor
time. "Tho Bedchamber Women came
into waiting before the Queen's prayers,
which was neforeshe was dressed. The
Queen often shifted in a morning. If
Her Majesty shifted at noon, tho Bed
chamber Lady being by, the Bedcham
ber Woman gave the shift to the Lady
without any ceremony, and the Lady
Iiut it on. Sometimes, likewise, tho
Jedchamber Woman gave tho fan to the
Lady in the same manner: and this wrs
all that the Bedchamber Lady did about
the Queen when she was dressing. When
tho Queen washed her hands, tho Page
of the Back Stairs brought and set down
on tho side-table the basin and ewer.
Then tho Bedchamber Woman set it be
fore the Queen, and knelt on the other
side of the ublo over against tho Queen,
the Bedchamber Lady only looking on.
The Bedchamber Woman poured tho
water out of the ewer upon tho Queen's
hands. Tho Bedchamber Woman pulled
on tho Queen's gloves when she could
not do it herself. The Pago of tho Back
Stairs was called in to put on tho
Queen's shoes, etc." All this is now ob
solete; the situations are quito honorary
bo far as work is concerned.
Served Him Eight
Sometimes tho young man who en
deavors to cultivate a street acquaintance
with an unknown young lady meets his
match. On a recent occasion a young
lady was leisurely strolling along a fash
ionable street, on her way to the depot,
admiringthe latest styles, when her medi
tations were brought to an abrupt ter
mination by a dapper, dandified little
fellow, who was dressed in tho latest
style, not omitting eyo-glass and cano,
who, stepping up, politely lifted his hat
and accosted her thus: "Excuse ah'nio
pleasure of carrying your portman
teau?" Tho young lady looked at him,
hesitated a moment, as if meditating
whether it would be safe to trust him,
and, with a "Certainly, sir, certainly,"
handed him the bag, which tho hand
some Lothario took, at tho same timo
glancing knowingly at a couple of young
friends hard by. The couple started
toward the depot, and as they walked
along the young man tried to strike up
a conversation wilh the youinr ladv: but
she evidently wasn't in a very talkative
mood, as sho could not be induced to
speak only iu answer to direct questions,
and thoseshe answered in monosyllables.
Arriving at the depot, the young lady,
to the consternation of the voting man
and the amusement of bis friends, who
had followed them just to watch develop
ments, pulled out her pocket-book, and,
handing him a dime, said, in a voice
loud enough for the by slanders to hear,
I m really sorry, but it's all thechaniro
I have; I'm very much obliged to you
for your kindness. I assure you it is
appreciated, and should I ever meet you
again 1 will give you fifteen cents, as it
is certainly worth" a quarter;" took her
bag and got aboard the train, leaving
the fellow standing on the sidewalk.
Tho young man, with a scowl at his
friends, who were cruelly laughing at
his discomfiture, turned and incontinent
ly lied. Would there were moro girls
liko this! Street flirtatious would soon
cease in that case,
Mrs. Ira Mulholland, Albany, N. Y.,
writes: "For several years I havo suffered
from oft- recurring bilious headaches, dys
pepsia and complaints peculiar to my sex.
