. Tbe Trouble with Pet Chickens.
In an amusing account of her farming
difficulties, Kate Sanborn recounts her
struggles in raising poultry, and isrives an
appalling list of the maladies to which hen
flesh is heir. Kven with the conquest of
these preliminary trials, however, difficul
ties do not cease, for, having raised the
chickens from helpless babyhood to such a
stage that they have become family pets,
parting with them proves wellnigh unen
durable. She says it is a hard and slow struggle
to get her chickens killed. I say, in an off
hand manner, with assumed nonchalance:
'"Ellen, I want Tom to kill a rooster at
once for tomorrow's dinner, and I have an
order from a friend for four more; so he
must select five tonight."
Then begins the trouble.
"Oh," pleads K!len, "don't kill dear
Dick! poor, dear Dick! That is Tom's pet
of all; so big and handsome, and knows so
much! He will jump upon Toru's shoulder
and eat out of his hand, and come when he
calls. And those big Hrahmas, don't you
know how they were brouaht up by hand,
as you might say, and they know me, and
hang around the door for crumbs; and that
beauty of a Wyandotte, you couldn't eat
When the matter is decide! and the guil
lotining is going on, Ellen and I sit listen
ing to the ax thuds and the death squawks,
while she wrings her hands, saying:
"Oh, dearie me! what a world this is!
What a thing to look into, that we must
kill the poor innocents to eat them. And
they were so tame and cunning, and would
follow me all around!''
The Uloriiied lllackberry.
There is a bug with a name as long as a
snake that abides amoticr the blackberries,
lie ies not tat t hem. He just haunt s the
patches where city boarders are staying,
and makes it his business to arise early in
the morning and crawl over the largest and
finest and rijxst berries. When you eat a
blackberry that has been glorified by a
visit from this bug you just lie right down
in the briars and ask to die. You do not
want to live a minute longer. Xot with
that taste in your mouth. If I understand
rightly what a bramble is, the biackhen
in a .tateof nature, is the bramblicst thing
triat ever brarnmetl. A human being,
clothed and in Lis right mind, who goes
in at one s-uie of a wil l blackberry patch
and comes out at the other is moved with
wonder at the compensations of nature.
l-'or every one of the thousand scratches
on his perishing frame he has a ready made
baudage bangrng looselv from Lis raiment.
How nifii can "oehoid such things and yet
vote the uther ticket is a mystery to every
body else. If you will run your hand, or
better, your sleeve, lightly down a black
lvrry cr.ne, from top to root, you will ob
serve that r.U the briars hook upward, to
catch everything that comes down. Then,
if you will run up the other way, you will
observe that ml the onars hook downward.
in order to c::teh everything ;usit comes up.
Robert J. Tiurdette in Indies' Home Jour
nal. She Was Persuaded.
"Ye."' sjiid an engineer of long experi
ence to a reporter, "railroading is an excit
ing, yet an attractive life. It has its 'aches
nrd p.-sins. hut nevertheless the 'goodies'
and 'wt ts,' too, if one may put it so.
"T remember a peculiar accident that
happened to nie on one of my trips not long
ago. Togo back a little, I will say that
one of t he many sharp eurves on the road
is on a ."50-foot hill that slopes down to an
old farmhouse. This house was occupied
by an old woman known as the Widow
Jones. She had Wen asked many times to
sell out to the railroad, for fear that some
accident would happen her and her home.
But the widow had refused just as often,
and things went on thus.
"Well, you see, one night about 10
o'clock as we struck the curve at a good
speed the engine broke from the train, left
the track and went rolling down the hilL
The fireman jum)ed safely, but I was not
quick enough. The next moment found
the engine crushing through Widow Jones'
house, with myself all mixed up in the
debris. I picked myself up just in time
to see the widow crawl out of her bed and
make a 'bee line' from the house.
"Next day I knowingly smiled as I read
in the paper the transfer, 'Widow Jones to
the B. RR.' "New York World.
Man and lieast,
A kind hearted woman in the western
part of the city had her sympathies ap
pealed to a few days ago by the spectacle
of a thin, attenuated horse attached to an
ash cart which stopped lefore her door.
"It's a shame." she said indicnant.ly to
the man who hail the horse and cart in
charge, "to drive such a poor, thin, half
starved beast. You ought to be punished
The man approached the good woman
and extended his hand.
"Kale me arrum and me ribs, ma'am,
and you'll see for yourself I'm as thin as
tbe horse," he said.
The equine sympathizer saw that he was
speaking the truth, and she at once set a
more snbstant ial form of her sympathy lie
fore him. Detroit Free Press.
Colors of Children's lyes.
It has been conclusively proved that wo
men have a larger projortion of brown
eyes than men. If iu parents the mother
has brown eyes and the father bine, the
chances arc eighty-eight to twelve that the
girls of the family will le brown eyed, the
percentage in favor of the boys having bine
eyes being Seventy-two to twenty-eight. If
the parents have eyes of like color the
chances in favor of the children, both male
and female, having eyes of the same color
is ninety-two to eight. St. Ixuis Re
public. Where Ills Mind Was.
The lecturer on theosophy had concluded
his long and able address and stood look
ing at the audience.
"If there is any question," he said, "that
any of you would like to ask me before I
sit down I should lie pleased to answer it."
Amid the deep silence that followed this
remark an earnest looking man near the
door rose and said:
"I'd like to know, professor, if anybody
has ever yet discovered a reliable and cer
tain cure for warts." London Tit-Bits.
Where a Horse Is a Curiosity.
It is said that some of the Venetians,
who have never lieen to the mainland, have
never seen a horse. A fair was once held
there and a showman brought a horse and
called it a monster. He charged the fac
tory hands fifteen cents each to see the
marvel. Philadelphia Ledger.
