the priest, with a marked change of
b-arlns and tone. "How- Is this?

The good priest spoke urgently, al

The boy'a eyes now turned from the

He paused, and Jean turned In Ms
chair to look at him juetlningly. i

"Ah!" exclaimed the priest . "This
comes from Laro's teachings."

"Always all of thy very long life,
Jean, my son?" said Pere Huot, a sa
tirical smile touching his tbin Hps.
The boy's face became crimson, and
he said nothing.
"We have talked long enough for
the. present, my son," the priest add
ed; "and now I will leave thee. Read
General Bonaparte's letter; and may
It bring thy mind to holding more wor

laying a caressing hand on the wilful
head "I beseech thee, try and harbor
kltdller feelings and more Christian
like forgiveness for thy brother."
He left the room, closing the door
softly, and Jean sat staring out of the
window, though the sun's rays now
stole down to touch his brow. But,
after musing a ftw seconds, he roused
himself with a quick, nervous move
ment, and kKiked again at the letter.
A moment later he broke Us seal;
and the thin paper seemed to pulse
with his own heartbeats as he read
and reread Its words:
"Mon ami mon cher ami De Soto
I am grieved to the heart that I must
letve thee. But go I must, relieved
by the assurance that I leave thee in
loving hands, which must soon nurse
thee back to that health t pray will

thee of our plans for thy future. If I
bLve thy love, do as the good father

soon meet In happy days. Let'Grclolre

heart of thy "PUarro."

Crttn r"ood In Winter.
The aim In feeding poultry in the
winter Is to give variety and crime as
near to meeting summer conditions as
possible. Therefore, the providing of
green food of some sort for winter
feed should not be overlooked. KIrM
now Is a good time to look after this
matter. Hoots, such as turnips, man
golds and suitar beets, enn be fed to
advantage In ;he winter provided that
the poultry quarters are not too mid.
Cut the root Into halves and place
them on spikes or nails driven Into
the walls so as to be In easy reach of
the fowls. The poultry will pick out
the meat of the beels with a relish.
Another source of green food Is cab
bnge. They should, however, be fed
sparingly, because of the danger of
diarrhoea. Cabbage Intended for feed
may be stored In root cellars or. where
the winters are not severe. In trenches
out of doors, and covered with dirt and
Vegetables, such as potatoes, can be
cooked and fed to advantage. On
many farms there are often quan
tities of small potatoes that are
wasted every year that might as
well have been fed to the poul
try during the w inter months. Briuht
clover . and alfalfa hay chopped
up and placed In the scratching peus
are gnat helps In winter feeding.
Rape and kale sown In the early fall
can be used as a food In the early
winter. The neglect to give a proper
amount of green food or substitutes to
poultry In confinement causes much
slcknc.-s in the early spring.
The Destructive Rat.
Housewives In tho country some
time complain that poultry raising Is
a grent care on account of the losses
that occur among the young chicks
largely due to the presence of rats.
The rat Is far harder to hedge against
than the cat. A goo.l strong parti
tion to the poultry bouse or a good
wire f. nee around the poultry yard
will keep out ca's. but these have lit
tle effei t in checking the depredations
of rats. They can gnaw through the
partition and tunnel under the wire
fence and do the work so expeditiously
that the damage to the f.oek is done
befjre the farmer has had time to take
combative measure. Then when he
begins to fiht the rodents lie finds
that the process is rot a smo.ih one.
The snimals avoid the steel trap and

thlnK that s-erns to he effective, and
the farmer hesitates alKiut employing
this, as he Is afraid of hurting fhcr
animals, nut this method of destnic
tlon will be found to be about the only
effective one If the rat are very num

Value of Bran.
Bran Is rich in mineral matter, and
contains a fair proportion of the phos
phate, for which reason It may be
used with the ration in order to render
it more complete. Some do cot ap
