DESIGN FOR VISITING DRESS.
In Russet-Brown Velveteen and Fine
Heie Is a very elegant combination

cloth. The plain trained skirt is of
velveteen, so are the tight-fitting un-
dcr-slecvvs, The ovorskirt and pina
fore bodice of the cloth are trimmed

High Boots of Tan.
As the winter weather advances
there is wider popularity for tho
Binarl tan boot that laces or buttons
six and eight Inches above the
The extra heavy fcoles are not used
as much as they, were for city streets.
They nro kept for county roads. The
fashionable shoe has a sole ot or
dinary thlckneBS, Is well arched,. has
a slightly rounded too, and a high,
straight Spanish heel.
CHINTZ HANGINGS ARE LIKED.
Especially for Bedrooms That Have a
For inside curtains heavy linen,
either natural linen color. In white ot
colors, is very popular. They are se
lected, of course, in accordance with
the fittings of the room and are
trimmed either with applique of linen
in contrasting colors, with braid or
embroidery in heavy linen thread
Chintz hangings aro.also very populai
and chintz and cretonne are now
shown in a more remarkable variety
of colors and designs than ever bo
fore. There is quite a fad at the mo
merit for the blue and white or the
red and white chintz hangings for use,
or course, In rooms suitably decorated.
The wall of a room, for Instance, may
be in pale gray or white and gray
when blue and white or red and white
chintz will be used for hangings and
upholstery. These chintzes are not
quite so striking as they sound, the
red chintz, in fact, being quite mild in
effect. The color Is a light and rather
dull red and the patterns show a great
deal of white. For some bedrooms,
such, for instance, as have a rather
chilly aspect, those chintzes are ad
mirable. They seem more suitable for
men's rooms than the flowered chint
zes in pink and green, lavender and
yellow which are so charming.
The Pierrot Ruff.
A Pierrot ruff, but having a hugt
bow at tho side in which little Pierrot
would not have known himself, Is one
of tho pretty little gifts to pass from
friend to filcnd. Choose mnrquisetto,
crisp chiffon, net or point d'esprit in
ono of tho catawba or wistaria shades.
Huffs of these exclusive colors may be
found In some of the shops, or the
materials niny be bought and carefullj
doubled and quilled Into shnpe. Tlu
very full quillings are then fastcnoc
on to n soft fold of silk of tho same
shade, measured to lit tho neck. The
bow of satin ribbon Is, again, tho iden
tlcal color, and bo suro the match Is
While It is very lovely to say "tit
on with a big soft bow," it is fni
wiser to caution the giver to have the
bow tied permanently, and to faster
Pierrot's ruff with a hook and eye.
Frills on Muffs.
A pretty fashion is that of adding i
frill of soft Satin or closely plaited
chiffon to the lower edge of fui
Drown is used with all brown furs
black with black and white with sucl
furs aa ermine and white fox.
When furs aro scant this addition It

forcing their way to tho fore have the
cosiest-looking arrangement of. quilled
and primly looped ribbon at the endf
where the hands are received.

eethcr. It consists, as will be seen,
of a pivot handle which drops of its
own weight when the box or coop Is
set down, and which, when the box is
to be lifted, will remain firm between
the two checks, as shown at the light.
PECULIARITIES OF TURKEYS.
Some Points Which Will Aid In Rais
S. 13. Wallace contributes the follow
ing items to "Profitable Poultry," re
cently compiled by F. D. Coburii of
Young turkeys are harder to ralso
than chicks or ducklings, and in or
der to succeed with them more pains
must be taken to study their naturo
The natuial tendency of the" turkey
is to roost where night overtakes it,
and in time the wild animals are apt
to diminish the flock.
This can be avoided by an inexpen
sively constructed roosting-place, which
can bo made with woven-wlre netting,
a few posts and a roof of tarred paper,
wheie the biids can be housed at
The young birds can be trained to
come up regulaily at about four
o'clock to bo fed, when they can easily
be driven into the roobting-place for
An earthen floor can be laid in this
pen, but it must be kept clean. Tho
majority of failmes are, no doubt, duo
to lack of pioper knowledge or to care
lessness. In many instances, where tho young
aro hatched by chicken hens, the foster-mother
is cooped and the little
ones deprived of their liheity, and fed
almost entirely on wheat or grain of
some sort, which alone is enough to
cause the poults to die.
They must have more of a vegetable
diet, and even in this case judgment
must be exeicised.
Turn the hen loose with the little
ones, and let them pick what they
most relish, giving them a little meal
or wheat to coax them home and also
to quicken their growth.
In picking stock from which to start,
make your calculation that some aro
wild and some are tame.
The bronze variety is very desir
able for the market on account of Its
size and the sweet flavor of its meat.
But on account of its wild, roving dis
position this variety is haid to raise.
The birds nearly always hide their
nests, and peihaps will not be seen
for a month or two at hatching season.
Tho White Hollands are more do
mesticated, and aro more apt to make
their nests about the barn and out
buildings, as chickens do. They are
also layeis, having a record of as
high as ten eggs at one clutch. They
aro piobably a littlo harder to ralso
than the Dourbon Reds, which, by tho
way, are handsome birds, but do not
become quite so tame. All turkeys
aro peculiar about their nests, and
when they once select the location
hey must not bo disturbed.
A Blind Policy.
The breeding of pure bred stock of
any kind is regarded by many people
as simply a hobby. Some peoplo say
a mongrel lion is good enough for
them. It may be, but they are certain
ly blind to their best Interests.
may exercise somewhat In fair weath
er. They should be fed three times a
day, morning, noon and night Tho
morning and noon feeds may consist
of one part corn meal, ono part ground
oats with tho hulls sifted out, ono
part bran and a third of a part of high
giade beef scraps. This may bo mixed
with water or milk, though if milk is
used not quite so much beef scraps
will lio needed. The night feed should
bo of cracked corn. FroBh water
should bo given to drink and a box of
grit and one of charcoal should bo
placed where the fowls can reach it at
any tlmo. No moio Bhould bo fed at
each meal than tho birds will cat up
ak ono feed and any that is left over
after 15 minutes should bo taken away
and tho feeding troughs removed.
Fresh Air for Fowls.
It Is safe to remember that nature
intended fowls to roost out in the
open air and that they never do well
when house'd In tight buildings where
tho air soon becomes ladeu with Im
purities. A poultry house must not let
In drafts but must bo well ventilated.

8he Was a Real Oratcr. ,
Senator neveridgo during a recent
fisit to Portland talked about oratory.
"The campaign," ho said, "has given
us oratory moro remarkable for quan
tity than quality. True oratory la that
which brings results, is that which
converts an audience of supporters.
Such oratory is rare.
"I have a friend whose wife, a 'suf
fragette, is a great orator. Her
speeches from the platform are won
derful, and her hutband the other
day gave me an illustration of the
efficiency of her private speeches.
" 'An agent called on my wife this
afternoon,' he said, 'and tried to sell
her a now wrinkle eradicator.'
" 'And how did the man make out?'
" 'He left in half an hour,' was the
answer, 'with a gross of bottles of
wrinkle eradicator of my wife's own
manufacture, that ho had purchased
BREAKS A COLD PROMPTLY
The following formula is a never
failing remedy for colds:
One ounce of Compound Syrup of
Sarsa;-arllla, ono ounce Toris Com
pound and one-half pint of good
whiskey, mix and shake thoroughly
each time and use in doses of a table
spoonful every four hours.
This if followed up will cure an
acute cold in 24 hours. The ingre
a'tfits can be gotten at any drug store.
Valuable Conch Shells.
The conch shell is highly prized in
India. In many of tho temples they
are blown daily to scare away the ma
lignant spirits while the god receives
his daily meal. A conch with the I
spiral twlstings to the right Instead of .
to the left Is supposed to be worth
Its weight in gold. Some years ago a '
conch of that description was offered i
for sale In Calcutta, with a reserve
price of a lakh of rupees placed on it.
tt was eventually bought in for $20,000. i
