tion, thht is if we would follow Knglish
HistoriM. A Jew years ago it became a
hxed rule that a woman calling on a hus
I'.iud and wife without her consort should
1 "live two of his cards and one of her own
"ilti the servant at the door. JJut the
-reat calling world has gradually decided
hat it Ls intensely stupid to use up twice
many of a man's cards as of a woman's,
r hen u is plain that a call on the wife is a
i ill ou Uie husband. Consequently, unless
y mi aie very punctilious, it is considered
M:te .suflicient to leave one gentleman's
''ml. The lady's card should be left only
v :e-n iho hostess is out, except in the case
a first call, and should not be left at "at
luinies," u-as or receptions if you would be
i aglish and up to date.

EXPERIENCE IN THE POULTRY YARD.1
Kemnrks Made by Veteran Poultry

At a recent meeting of Pennsylvania
I .nnners, Dr. U. Green, a veteran poultry
raiser, read an esay, extracts from
which are here give r.

to be lower than 45 los. in winter, and

increased in size an I ric hness by proper
food. Laying hons require variety of
food and get excess vely tired of any ono
kind. In winter j reen food, such as
turnips, beets, cabbage leaves, etc., are
essential. (Vnn aid wheat middlings,
corn, oats and scrips in-m the house

the diet as often as thrice a week.

but, as (hey drink i nly a small qu.uiLity
at a time, it must l kept in constant

separate pens are n. uch more profitable
and easily kept hciltliv than when l.irgo

The sooner you bee -in setting the lions m
the spring for the purpose of raising
chickens the boiler. Lute chickens, as
a rule, fare badly. Pullets rarely make
good mothers. Three, and four-year-old
hens are best. V.'l en clucking and not
needed for mother-, the quickest way to
conquer a setting 1 on is to confine her in
a box with only a board to lie upon.
Rig !'uiiiikiil l uiuiies.
The pumpkins lown in the cut are
mammoth aifaii-s, grown on the PeUiaui i
farm, in lister cot.r.ty, N. Y. From r.n '
acre to an acre and a half of pumpkins
are grown each yei.r. These are planted
on sod with plen y of .stable manure1
and also some fertilizer in the hill. The
hills are twenty .'eet apait. They are
cultivated by lmr e and hand as long1
as the vines will permit. In time of
drought water is brought in barrels and
poured around each hill. The flowers
ire pinched off, that each vine will
produce but one big fellow. The largest
pumpkins yet gro vn there weighed :s,
U31 and :547 pound-., respectively. i
Mr. House, the manager of the Pel
ham farm, is m t satisfied with these
weights and proposes to reach 4D0
pounds next year. The raising and
marketing of this crop shows progress if
anything ever did. remarks the Rural
New Yorker, to v hich thanks are due

Uidity pays. The man who grows pump
kins bigger than his neighbors and lets
the people know it will have trade. The
man who makes the pumpkins into first
class pies and advertises them will have
to put in new tables to supply his cus
tomers, '"tfet individuality or get out
of the race!" Mi. House says "there is
no secret in raising big pumpkins." Of
course not. Nat ire has to secret- Her
story is like an "ojien book" to those
who have the will and the patience to
learn to read it.
These big pum ikins are used by res-

tiling to do whfu it is found they have

them, whether :hey are in bulk or in

make it as grad lal as possible. But the

THE MILKY WAY.
Legendary Fancies AsHoctatctl 'with the
Bright, Starry Hand.
The bright, starry band that lies like a
road across the sky, and which is popularly
called the milky way, has iriven rise to
. many pretty fancies. As Dr. Tylor points
. ont, mere is in tnese a striking correspond-
' piii-0 I i .t if.'.'Ti enrnrruc u , 1 ..ultnLul
enee between savages and cultured nations
the principal idea being that this brilliant
pathway of stars is the greut spirit high-'
way the vast bridge of the dead, over
"hich souls mast pass on their waytothe
other world. According to a Lithuanian
story, this milky way is the "Road, of
liirds." "at whose end t he souls of the good,
fancied as flitting away at death like birds,
dwell free and happy."
It was the belief of the old Aryan world
that at death the soul on leaving this world
was not left to make the dread journey to
its final destination alone or unprotected,
for, as the Ycdas tell us, it was taken up
by a cow a cloud which conveyed it
across the heavenly waters and over the
milky way to Vaina's dwelling. For this
reason it was made a religious ordinance of
the Hindoos that the dying person should
lay hold of the tail of a cow in his last mo
ments, l'or the same reason cows drew
the corpse to the funeral pile, and a black
cow was escorted after it to the same spot
and staid there.
It was, too, as Mannhardt observes, com
monly supposed in olden times in Germnny
that the milky way is the way of souls, and
in I'rieshind it went by the name of the
cowp.ith. It was also believed tiiat who
ever had given a cow to t lie poor on earth
would not stumble when he had to cross
the tearful bridge, for there he would find
a cow that would carry him safely over.
Jlcucc we are told, "it wis of yore a fu
neral custom in Sweden, Denmark, Kng
land and tii rnuiny that a cow should fol
low the collin to the churchyard." This
custom was accounted for on the ground
that the cow was a gilt to the clergy for
saying masses for the dead man's soul or
preaching: his funeral sermon. By the
l'.asutos the milky way is termed the "way
of gods," and the Xorth American tribes
know it as the "road of souls" or "path of
spirits," while the Maniclneans speak of
the "column of light."

Cloves Are V'nopened Flutters.
Cloves are the unopened flower of a
small evergreen tree that resembles in ap
pearance the laurel or the bay. It is a na
tive of the Malacca or Spieo islands, but
has liecn carried to all the warmer parts of
the world, ami it is now cultivated in the
tropical regions of America. The flowers
are small in size and grow in large num
bers in clusters to the very end of the
branches. The cloves we use are the flow
ers gathered before they are opened and
while they are still green. After being
gathered they are smoked by a wood tire
and then dried in the sun. Each clove con
sists of two parts of a round head, which
are the four petals or leaves of the flower
rolled up. inclosing a number of small
stalks or filaments; the other part of the
clove is terminated with four points, mid
is in fact the Mower-cup of the unripe
seed vessel. All these parts may be dis
tinctly seen if a few cloves are soaked for
a short time in hot water, when the leaves
of the flower soften and unroll.
