ine following inquiries and replies
have been awaiting publication and

western tonr and Pnget sound letters till
a later date if the reader will not object
I do not care to keep correspondents
waiting too long for fear that they will
get tired and fail to write me in the fut
ure when they want to know anything,
Mr. Earnest Pendergast writes from
Puyallup as follows:
"Why do yon not try to improve yonr
appearance more? I think you could if
you would, and we would all bo so clad.
You either have a very malicious artist,
or eise your teatnrM must pain you a
good deal at rimes. Why don't yon grow
"I HAD A MCSTACITE ONCE."
These remarks, of course, are a little
bit personal, Earnest, but still thev show
your goodness of heart. I fear that you
are cursed with the fatal gift of beauty
yourselr and wish to have others go with
you on the downward way. You ask
why 1 do not grow a mustache and
tell you frankly that it is for the public
good that I do not. I used to wear a
long, drooping and beautiful mustache,
which was well received in society, and
under the quiet stars and opportune cir
cumstances, gave good satisfaction: but
at labt the hour came when I felt that 1
must decide tet ween this long, silky mus
tache and soft boiled esrgs, of which I
am passionately fond. 1 hope that you
understand my position. Earnest, and
that I am btndying the public welfare
more than my own at all times.
Sassaf raa Oleson, of South Deadman,
writes to know something of the care of
rowls in the spring and summer. "Do
you know," he asks, "anything of the
best methods for feeding young chicks
who may not get the proper nourish
went irom me motner.' is there any
way to prevent hens from stealing their
nests and sitting on inanimate obiects!
Tell ns through the papers as tersely as
possible what your own experience has
been with hens."
Iq speak tersely of the hen and her
mission in life seems to me almost sacri
lege. It is at least in poor taste. The
hen and her works lie near to every true
heart She does much toward making
us better, and ehe don't care who knows
it, either. Young chicks who have lost
their mothers by death, and whose
fathers are of a shiftless and improvi
dent nature, may be fed on koumiss, two
parts; moxie, eight parts; distilled water.
ten parts. Mix and administer till relief
13 obtainecL Sometimes, however, the
chick will readily nurse the guinea hen.
and many lives have been saved in this
way. Whether or not this plan will in
fluence the voice of the rising hen is s
question among henologists of the conn
try which I will not attempt to answer.
Hens who steal their nests are cener
ally of a secretive nature and are more
or less social pariahs. A hen who will
do this shonld be watched at all times
and won back by kind words from the
step she is about to take. Brute force
will accomplish little. Logic also avails
little at such a time but by striking at
the foundations of hen society and show
ing her that it is honorable at all times
to lay a good egg, and that as soon as
she begins to be secretive and to seek to
mislead those who know and love her
she at onco takes a course which cannot
end with honor to herself or her descend
I have made the hen a study for many
years, and love to watch her even yet as
she resumes her toils on a falling market
year after year, or seeks to hatch out a
summer hotel by setting on a door knob.
She interests and pleases me. Careful
study of the hen convinces me that her
low, retreating forehead is a true index
to her limited reasoning faculties and
lack of memory, ideality, imagination,
calculation and spirituality. She is also
deficient in her enjoyment of humor.
I once owned a large white draught
rooster who stood about seven hands
high and had feet on him which would
readily break down a whole corn field if
he walked through it. Yet he lacked
the courage of his convictions, and so
cially was not regarded as a success.
jjeauing xiens seemeu to regaru mm as a
good hearted rooster and seemed to won
. der that he did ot get on better in a so
cial way. He had a rich baritone voice
and was a good provider, digging up
large areas of garden and giving the hens
what was left after he got through, and
yet they gave their smiles to far more
dissolute though perhaps brighter minds.
' So I took him away awhile and let him
eesomething of the world by allowing
him to visit among the neighbors and
see society a little. Then I brought him
home again, and one night colored him
with diamond dyes so that he was a
butiful scarlet. His name was Sum
ner. I took Sumner the following morning
and turned him loose among his old
nelghliors. Surprise was written on
every face. lie realized his advantage,
and the first thing he did was to greet
the astonished crowd with a guttural
remark, which made them jump. He
then stepped over to a hated rival and
ate off alHwt fifteen cents' worth of his
large, red, pompadour comb. He now
remarked in a courteous way to a small
Poland China hen, who seemed to be at
the head of all works of social improve
ment, that we were having rather a
backward spring. Then he picked out
the eye of another rivalj much to his ear
prisei and went on with tiie conversa
tion. By noon the bright scarlet rooster
owned the town. . Those who had picked
on him before had now gone to the hos
pital, and practically the social world
-was his. lie got so stuck up that he
crowed whenever the conversation lagged
and was too prond to eat a worm that
was notright off the ice. Inever saw
prosperity knock the sense onl of a roos
ter so soon. . He lost my sympathy at
once, and I resolved to let him carve out
his own career as best he might.
i O-rJUnftH v Vii a fftil raathAT-a Draw o-vav
and faded, but he wore his head high.
He was arrogant and made the hens go
worming for his breakfast by daylight.
Then he would get mad at the food and
lie real hateful and step on the little
chickens with his great big feet.
But as his new feathers began to come
in folks got on to him, aa Justinian has it,
and the other roosters legan to brighten
up and also blow np tTieir biceps muscles.
One day he was especially mean at
breakfast. A large fat worm, brought
to him by the flower of his harem, had
a slight gamey flavor, he seemed to
think, and so he got mad and bit several
chickens with his great coarse beak and
stepped on some more and made a per
fect show of himself.
At this moment a smgll bantam wear
ing one eye still in mourning danced up
and kicked Sumner's eye out. Then an
other rival knocked the stuffing for a
whole sofa pillow out of Sumner and
retired. By this time the surprised and
gratified hens stepped back and gave
the boys a chance. The bantam now
put on his trim little telegraph climbers
and, going up Mr. Sumner's powerful
frame at aliont four jumps, he put in
some repairs on the giant's features, pre
sented his bill and returned. By 9
o'clock Sumner didn't have features
enough left for a Sunday paper. He
looked as if he had been through the
elevated station at City hall and Brook
lyn bridge. He looked np sadly at me
with his one eye as who should say,
"Have you got any more of that there
red paint left?" But I shook my head at
him and he wnt away into a little patch
of catnip and stayed there four days.
After that you could get that rooster to
do anything for yon except lav. ne
was gentle to a fault. He would run
erranos ror tnose nens ana turn an ice
cream freezer for them all day on lawn
festival days while others were gav. He
never murmured nor repined. He was
land to the little chickens and often
spoke to them about the general advant
ages of humility.
After many years of usefulness Sum
ner one day thoughtlessly ate the re
mains of a salt mackerel, and pulling the
arapery or his couch about him he lay
down to pleasant dreams and life's fitful
fever was over, nis remains were given
to a poor family in whom I take a great
interest, frequently giving them many
tuings lor which 1 have no especial use.
This should tejtch us that some people
cannot stand prosperity, but need a lit
tie sorrow ever and anon to teach them
where they belong. And oh. how the
great world smiles when a rooster who
has owned the ranch for a year or so am
maae himself odious gets spread out
over the United States by a smaller one
with less voice.
The study of the fowl is filled with in
terest. I keep fowls late years instead
of a garden. Formerly my neighbors
kept fowls and I kept the garden.
It is letter as it is.
Mertie Kersykes, Whatcom, Wash.
writes as follows: "Dear Mr. Nye, does

I heard him once tell his little boys the
story of David and Goliath. He said:
You know Goliath had put up the dust
a long time in the First Philistine Na
tional bank, and kept the offer good to
knock out anybody or fight to a finish,
any terms, with catch-as-catch-can pro
visions, for gate receipts; loser to get
nuthin but a quiet funeral and a low
grave under the daisies. They fit in them
lays, boys, and these ornamental hinno-
orome scraps or our time was no good.
A feller settled up his affairs and staid
In the nng till they rung for the under
"Goliath was a blow, but he was the
champion heavyweight, and so they run
it into politics and made it Goliath and
uia gang agin me Israelites, it was a
queer case. The papers had a standing
notice fer over a year offering most any
thing, see? fer a man that ud clean out
Goliath and knock the head off him, but
it was no go. The Israelites did well in
trade, but they was peaceable. They
could sell goods and kick at a hotel, but
they conldn t fight fer sour apples.
"iinally long comes little Dave. His
father was in the sheep business and
Dave had been in the habit of catchine

"Dave says: 'Goll, I ain't no match fer

Several of his favorite brains oozed out
and left him nothing to think with. See?
"So down went Goliath to the b ttom

Dave takes his pelt home to show that
he's the lalla, yon bet you, and ha got

Goliath whs a good rink attraction, but
he couldn't always deliver the goods he
advertised. And now go home, Ihtvs.

School was then dismissed.
Name Pointerx Which May be ef In
trrrat to Rwk Inland in lla li-eent
quandary a t the K fond Avenne
At the present time when Rock Island
has under consideration the quest on of
how to keep the Second avenue paves
ment clean, an article appearing in the
Sious City Journal where they teem to
be in the same predicament, will lie read
with interest. Mayor Palmer, of that
city thinks street sweeping is a great ne
cessity to a city after a system of pave
ment has been adopted:
He says that the rubbish constantly
collecting in the streets is an eve-rt he
devoutly wishes to be rid of, and during
his recent trip to Kansas City and Omaha
he took pains to look into the n.ethods
employed in those two cities for keeping
me streets clean, in Omaha he found
that the city had just closed a contract
for sweeping all improved streets, and
brought back with him a copy of t ie con
tract in the hope that something similar
might be done here.
Among the stipulations of the contract
are clauses requiring the contractor to
Keep on band and ready for use a suffi
cient number of sweeping machires that
would leave the dirt in inrows
so as to be easily shoveled into wagons
and carted away; that the steeping
must be done between the hrurs of
10 p. m. and 5 a. m., and that the rub
bish must be removed before 10 a. m :
that such sweeping shall cause the public
as little inconvenience as possible, and if
necessary tne streets must be srrinkled
before sweeping. For this Omaha pays
$ 15 per mile for each sweeping. The
same contractor also has the cleaning of
the streets in the winter, for wl.ich the
city allows a maximum rate of $1 .50 per
day for each laborer employed and 2-50
for man and team, the contractor to re
ceive 10 per cent above the actual cost of
This, or something like it, the mayor
thinks, would be a good thing tor the
city, and he proposes to agitate the mat
ter among the councilmen.
This is not exactly what Rock Island
wants, but it demonstrates ho- other
cities are taking hold of the subject.
There is a movement here now for a com
bined sprinkler and sweeper which will
not entail a much greater expersethan
the actual cost of sprinkling does now.
Mrs. Grady has placed in the l ands of
Contractor Geo. Bick a contract, to re
model her cottage. 2506 Moline avenue,
and raise it another story and also to
widen it two feet.
One of the attractive new hf uses in
course ot erection are one for Mr. A. AN
lison, on Seventh avenue between Forty-ly-secondand
Forty third streets, and one
for Patrick Quintan, on Seventh street
and Second avenue, for both of which
Geo. Bick has the contracts.
Messrs. John Ohlweiler, Jr., and Jerry
Darrah are putting up new fences in front
of their residences on Fourth avenue.
