MEANINGLESS GUI MACES.
"There is one thing which never fails
to interest me, but at all times con
tinues to puzzle me," remarked a well
known physician to a writer for thf
Washington l'ost, "and that is, why
women who are frequently beautiful
will deliberately, and for no reason,
persist in marring tho contour of their
counenanees by facial distortion until
it assumes outlines of ugliness.
"The practice of working the mouth
into all sorts of meaningless grimaces,
Vvhieh are particularly noticeable dur
ing the pauses of conversation or when
Vailed with deep thought is ex-
.iainea uy many as just a uaoit mey
uitve formed,' and this seems to awak
en satisfaction concerning the matter
and serves as sufficient reason to con
tinue the practice. It is here we get a
glimpse of the proverbial inconsistency
of woman, for notice the very same wo
mar who twists her mouth, tho most
atf.O'-etive part of tho face, into all
sortof the most remarkable shapes
is (fust the woman who is apt to he a
devoted reader of the beauty and hy
giene columns of the magazines and
papers and equally likely to be a dili
gent pnpil in the school of beauty cult.
"Singular as this may seem on the
part of the sex that craves, and strives
toward beauty of face and eomlinoss
of flerson, it is none the loss true, and
jx need be seated in a car only a
short while whoa you can witness these
grimaces, to be convinced of the fact.'

u (4 lifdvrman, unless alas!
the man whose sole oojeet Is his catch. S-.uch a man fcshes
with a worm, hides lingerlings in the depth of his basket and
photographs his catch as a witness of his crimes, lie is not
a fisherman, but a butcher. A yellow primrose on the river's
bank is to him a primrore and nothing more. The true fisher
man loves to catch lish, to match his wits against the wary
trout, but as he wanders from pool to pool the ecngs of the birds greet him
restfully; every turn in the stream reveals a rook in which strange wild flowers
nestle. The gentle excitement cf the sport prevents the scene from becoming
monotonous. The element of chance, the uncertainty of the catch add tho
drop of tohasco sauce which gives zest to the day. And the noontide meal by
the brink of the stream! When did a meal have n more delightful flavor'
Delmonlco never served a trout like unto those we have eaten by the banks ol
a mountain brook with the clear blue sky above, the waving forest round about
and the murmuring stream at our feet. The hour of contemplation comes
afterward with the pipe of peace in our hand Instead of the relinquished rod.
How far off the ci'ty seems! Are there such things as corporations, trusts,
stocks, bonds; electric lights that amaze the sight, harsh warnings of trolley
gongs, tho nimble and grind of the wheels and tho brakes on tho elevated road
which affright the ear? The harshest note that breaks tho stillness here is the
boom of the bittern in the distant marsh. Home to camp the fisherman gees,
taking a cast in this silent pool in which the trout rose in the forenoon to his
cast but missed the fly, or in that dark hole deep under the bank in which a
vigilant eye may detect the brown sides of a trout with lazily waving fins and
tail an eld campaigner not easily caught. World's Work.
Ek Menace of
By Dr. George F. Shrady.
T is a most deplorable fact that the persons who occupy the
Important places in our industrial, commercial and political
life are failing even to reproduce their own number, while it
is among the most undesirable clement in our population that
we find the greatest fecundity. This is particularly true in
the cities, where the average number of children in the fami
lies of the well-to-do Is certainly not greater than two, while
the foreign born population, many of whom are from the
lowest classes of Europe, are increasing at a marvellous rate.
Were it not for the fact that in the rural districts thi3 condition is not so
apparent the danger of the country would be much greater than it is. In the
country there may not be as many children on the average among the families
of American born parents as formerly, but tho rate of increase is still much
greater than it is In tho cities, and merely because the country, ns a whole,
will be secure so long as the rural districts are still able to send their worthiest
sons to the cities, there to take the most important places, is no excuse for the
parents now living In the cities for not doing their share to reproduce a race
which has taken first, place in the world.
For the mother who deliberately sacrifices the joys of motherhood in order
to be able to devote more of her time to society, and for the father who pre
fers to be able to have his automobile and his clubs and his handsome city
nnd country, homes, without being burdened In even the slightest way by a
large family cf children, there Is no excuse, there can be none.
And for the fashionable mother who delivers her child over to the care
of a nurse immediately after its birth there is still less excuse." To this fact,
to the unhappy fact that a large proportion of city bred children are brought
up on bottles Is due the great preponderance of country bred men among those
who are filling the positions of importance in all our cities. Statistics prove
that less than fifteen per cent, of such men were born ia cities. Fed when
young on n bottle, instead of being nourished ns nature demands, they are
unfit to compete with the boys who come from tho mountains and plains, who
were started right, and before they entered on their careers gained the strength
and nervous energy necessary In the life we are leading In tho larger cities.
To this violation of the laws of nature is due much of the weakness and
tendency to disease which is so strikingly apparent among city children as
compared with those bred in the country-
I cannot too strongly express my opinion on this point. The true aristoc
racy of this country Is an aristocracy of brains, whether it originates In the
farm "house, the tenement or the palace, but .f we are to continue to have this
sort of an atlstocjacy the men and women who now make it up must not fail
In their duties of future generations. The far seeing girl of tho future who
wishes to solve this problem in her own way, would much better make a
choice of a young man of brains than of the young millionaire without them.
It should not be so much a question
ity In the future father. That is the
affairs is not to be altered for the worse it behooves the educated men and
women of the present "to think for the future, and to remember that it is the
luxuries nnd cot the necessities of life that make us cowardly about taking
upon ourselves Increased responsibilities coincident with -Increased families

ceed as well as he has done. On the

CONFINING THE HEN TURKEY.
I have found that confining the tur
key hen in a coop, where the yor.ng
turks can go In and out at will, is tho
best place to keep them when young
and In bad weather. The young ones
cannot stand confinement at any time.
But the coop in a well-drained place,
where the grass is short, and move It
often. After the poults are a week or
so old, the hen can be turned out for rt
few hours each day, but not long
enough to tire them cut, as they are
very tender and cannot stand much
trailing through the grass at this age.
When the turks are three or four weeks
old the hen need not be kept in the coon
only till the dew is off in the morning
and in bad weather. New England
CHANGE OF FEED.
I want a variety and change often.
It is essential that poultry should have
green food of some sort. Mine have
plenty of grass when the ground i
bare. In winter, I feed cabbages, ap
ples, cnions, small potatoes,' or some
thing in the vegetable line. For grain
I give corn, oats, wheat and buck
wheat I consider corn the cheapest
and by actual test find that cracked
corn and oats are better than wheat
and corn. For winter eggs I find the
early pullets that get fully developed
before cold weather sets in are tho
best. Cut green bone or animal meal
helps wonderfully to fill the egg bask
et. In summer I feed sour milk or
skimmilk with good results. James A.
Keech, in Orange Judtl Farmed.
SOUR SWILL BAD FOR SWINE.
One of the chief reasons why som"1
pig raisers fail to secure the success
which their neighbors enjoy is because
the kitchen refuse is allowed to be
come fermented before being fed. It
is a mistake to imagine that everything
a pig will eat is good for him. He hat
really no greater need, nor does his
system call for food strongly acid, than
a man would have for pickles at every
meal. There Is no more active agent
in promoting indigestion in pigs of all
ages and in checking rapid and profit
able growth than scur swill. It keeps
young pigs thin in flesh and ailing, and
for ofder ones, and brood sows in par
ticular, it commonly puts them off
their feed. While everything coming
from the kitchen should be made uso
of Its receptabh should be kept clean.
Take it all down to the pens while
fresh and feed at once; nothing can be
gained by delay, and much may be
EARLY GREEN FORAGE.
Rye fodder is no doubt very pooi
Ptuff, If considered simply from the
point of its composition, but on account
of its readiness for use early in the
season, it is highly valued by most
dairy farmers who follow the soiling
system. It comes at a time when some
sort of green fodder is a much-needed
tonic, nnd its juieiuess increases the
milk flow decidedly. It must be cut
when in full bloom, when the stalks
and leaves are soft and tender. A
sheaf binder Is a great labor saver.
Each cow should be given a medium
sized forkful three times a day, the
amount being increased as the cow
becomes accustomed to the change in
food. Y'oung rye is a good food until
the bloom falls erf, after which the
stalk becomes rather hard and tough.
It must the n lie made into hay, but by
that time the crop of fodder, oats and
poas is likely to be ready.
