A Bird That la Becoming; Popular
With the Fanciers.
For a long time Exhibition Games
have been favorites In this country.
P.y careful selection in breeding for
many generations they have been
brought to a high state of perfection.
The beauty of an Exhibition Game is
much praised in this and other coun
tries and the pens are always filled at
the shows. They are sought after and
courted by fanciers and as ornamental
fowls they have few equals in the
DOmber of their admirers. Tl:4f)prac
tlcal qualities of the Exhibition Game
bare never been demonstrated with
accuracy, their tall figures standing in
I lie way of popularity and general use
fulness. It should not be understood
Hint they are unprofitable to keep, but
rather not a fowl for farm purposes.
They are usually splendid layers and
excellent table fowls, their meat being
(hie grained, tender and juicy. They
I^*7? — ■----N
are splendid sitters and mothers. Their
tall, commanding and striking figures
are decided contrasts to those of other
poultry and afford a diversion to ad
mirers of tine poultry. The varieties
of Exhibition Games are: Black
Breasted Red, Brown Bed, Golden and
Silver Duckwing, Red Pyles, White,
Black, Birchen, Cornish and White In
The Brown lied Game's face is dark
purple; beak, dark brown or black;
wattles, comb and ear lobes, black or
dark purple; head of cock, orange;
hackle, lemon colored, with a black
stripe down center of each feather;
back, lemon; saddle, lemon colored,
striped like hackle; breast, black, laced
with lemon; shoulders, black; shoulder
coverts, lemon; wing bows, lemon,
and the coverts glossy black; tail, lus
trous black; shanks and feet, dark yel
low, nearly black. The Golden and
Silver Duckwing Games are similar
in markings, the only difference being
that the Silver Duckwing cock is
white where the Golden Duckwing
is golden or straw color. In both vari
eties the face, comb, wattles and ear
lobes are red; the beak, horn; breast,
tail and thighs, black; shanks and feet,
yellow. In the Golden the head of the
cock is straw color; back, golden; wing
bow, golden, the wing coverts forming
a distinct black bar across the wing.
These points are white in the Silver
Furnished Fun Fop the Passengers.
The ways of a hen are often original
nnd sometimes mirth provoking, and a
Plymouth Rock did novel and amusing
things, to the joy of a carload of pas
sengers on a recent trip from Braddock
to I'ittsburg. The Pittsburg Commer
cial Gazette tells the story:
Carrying a hen proudly, a man who
was evidently a foreigner got on the
trolley car at Braddock. He was
drowsy and not quite sober, and he
crossed his legs, put the hen on his lap
and went to sleep. Four miles out of
Braddock the hen suddenly woke from
its own reverie and cackled. Its own
er opened his eyes and found himself
and his hen objects of interest. He
was annoyed, but the passengers had
more or less excuse for staring; they
had discovered a fresh ogg resting
snugly on the man's lap.
No one could speak the man's lan
guage, but every one was bound that
he should know what had happened.
Twenty index fingers pointed to the
hen, and 40 eyes were turned in the
same direction. Finally the stranger
lifted the hen tenderly, and the secret
was revealed.
Then he was wide awake. With his
left hand he held the egg jiloft, that
all might see; with his right hand he
affectionately stroked the hen. Every
body smiled. All at once it seemed to
occur to him that refreshaients were ip
order. He grinned at his fellow pas
sengers, tapped the shell on the edgi
of the seat to open a way to the in
terior and swallowed the egg.

Point* From Secretary Wilson' 4 Re
port For ISD».
Much work lias been undertaken uu
i behalf of tobacco, looking to as wide
a substitution aa possible of home
grown for Imported product, by im
proving the quality of the former. In
teresting Investigations as to the
causes affecting flavor and aroma are
being carried ou.
Prom a study of the imports of l>'>n
bark, especially of American grains
ami oilcake, the secretary concludes
strongly against a policy which steril
izes our lands m the same time that
it supplies other countries with the
means of producing meats and dairy
products for foreign markets which
we could ourselves supply.
The Interesting fact is noted that the
tea gardens at Summerville produced
3,600 pounds of tea the past season.
Irrigation experiments, improvement
of varieties by importation and by
hybridization, are indicated as impor
tant steps to be studied.
In regard to public lands the secre
tary deplores the 111 results of inju
dicious grazing due to the indifference
of the occupiers under the present sys
tem. He advocates leasing in large
areas and for a sufficient time to in
vite improvement and suggests that
the revenue from such leases might
be turned over to the states for edu
cational purposes or irrigation.
Of the abandoned farms of New
England lit; says that they are not
abandoned on account of sterility; that
they will be studied by the soil physi
cist, agrostologist and the forester,
and the valuable suggestions resulting
from their studies will be distributed
throughout New England.
The secretary discusses the subject
of Irrigation at considerable length,
giving strong reasons for a general
study of the whole subject. He points
out the wide difference in laws and
methods prevailing in the different
states dependent upon irrigation and
states that most Important rivers have
streams supplying irrigation to half a
dozen states. Inevitably, under these
circumstances, differences will arise
calling for legislation by congress,
which should, therefore, be pur in
possession of all the facts affecting
this important subject as early as pos
sible. He also points out that I lie use
fulness of this Investigation is by no
means limited to the arid region, but
that irrigation could be profitably em
ployed In large areas in the eastern
and southern states.
Our imports of oranges, lemons, co
coanuts, bananas, and especially cof
fee, of which in 3SUS we imported over
$G5,000,000 worth, could, in large part,
be produced in Porto Rico. The secre
tary especially recommends experi
ments in the production of India rub
ber, for which we are now largely de
pendent upon Brazil.
Holder For Sacks.
An lowa Homestead correspondent
sketches and describes a sack bolder
which he linds useful: Take two strips
1 by 1% inches
by 42 inches long
and nail them
together by two
pieces of lath 17
inches long, one
at the top and
one at the bot
tom. Then get
two pieces of
board 18 inches
long and nail
them on the out
side of the con
cern. Then brace
crossways with
lath. The hooks
should be three
inches from the
/ \
top. They can be made of tenpenny wire
nails driven through, then filed sharp
(so as not to tear the sack) and bent
into shape. All braces should be on op
posite side of the hooks. For tilling
sacks a tin pail answers better than n
scoop shovel.
The World's Wheat Crop.
According to Broomhall: World's
wheat crop of 1899, 2,496,400,000 bush
els; world's wheat crop of 1898, 2,886,
--144,000 bushels; world's wheat crop of
1597, 2,209,352,000 bushels. This makes
the crop of 1599 fall short of that of
last year by 389,744.000 bushels, though
exceeding that of 1597 by 227,018,000
bushels—that Is, according to Broom
hall's estimate, it is considered better
than the very short crop of 1897, but
decidedly nearer to that than to the
large one of 1898.
\. .> n and Xotes.
The United States department of
agriculture has in press and will soon
issue bulletin No. 72, office of experi
ment stations, entitled "Farmers'
Heading Courses." The bulletin was
prepared by Professor L. 11. Bailey,
M. S., professor of horticulture in Cor
nell university, and gives a history of
the organization of farmers' reading
courses, which have become an im
portant factor among the agencies for
diffusing knowledge and promoting
enthusiasm among the farmers. The
bulletin contains lists of books used in
various reading courses.
No marked crop departure from the
ten year average is noted for any of
the principal tobacco growing states
this season, says the crop circular.
The indicated average yield per acre
of potatoes, according to government
reports, is 88.7 bushels per acre, as
compared with 75.2 bushels last year.
64.G bushels In 1897 and 75.2 bushels,
the mean of the preliminary averages
of the last ten years. The average per
cent of quality is 91.4.
Practical forestry in the Adiron
dacks, bulletin No. 2G, contains an ac
count of work accomplished under the
offer made in 1898 by the agricultural
department to assist farmers, lumber
men and others in handling their for
est lands.

Housekeepers mu^t exercise rare in buying bak

sold cheap to catch the unwary, but alum is a poi
son, and its us<- in food seriously injures health.

General Grant Owns t'p.
When General Grant came to Liver
pool and was entertained at the town
hall, a quite unknown Liverpool man
wrote to the mayor with many apolo
gies, but asking if he might take the
liberty of asking for a few minutes'
conversation with the great soldier.
The mayor hesitated, but found a
way of mentioning the matter to the
great man, who, without hesitation,
said, "Certainly; let the gentleman
come." lie came. lie said to the gen
eral: "Now, sir, utter amateur as 1
am, I have followed every step of the
war, and I think 1 understand every
movement except one. On such a day
you were there and the southerners
were there," pointing to plans on a
map that he had brought. "Now, It
seems to me that you ought certainly
to have gone there, whereas you went
there," pointing again. General Grant,
the usually taciturn and when not
taciturn phenomenally terse, just took
the cigar from his mouth and said:
"You're right, sir! Infernal blunder!"
Aud In a moment the amateur strat
egist, beaming now, was courteously
dismissed.— "That Reminds Me," by

A Natural MistaU.-.
A few years before bis death Allen
G. Thurmau of Ohio was engaged as
counsel in a lawsuit which was tried
I irfore a country judge in one of the
small towns in the central part of the
state. Opposing Judge Thurman was
a young lawyer named Cassidy, who
wore his hair pompadour, assumed an
air of great dignity and was apparent
ly greatly impressed with his own im
portance. Upon several occasions dur
ing the progress of the trial Thurman
referred to bis legal opponent as "Mr.
Necessity." The young man arose
whenever this occurred and with great
gravity reminded the court that bis
name was Cassidy. Finally, after the
offense had been repeated about a
dozen times, the pompous attorney ex
"I must again remind counsel upon
the other side that my name is Cas
sidy. I can't understand why be per

Thurman. "The reason I keep getting
