grieved your orderly some to have
sandwiched in between the locals,

when the spirit moves, I write."
"What will Aunt Kate think'' says
one fellow member from the substan?
tial neighborhood of, Dials, ' when I
fly in the face of her opinion and also
that of the editor and boldly declare
as regards compulsory education. I'm
agin it!" I was taught by my father,
that it was always the part of. wis
dom to give to any one the right to
his own opinion?howevor, diverse it
wero to my own. Granting you that
right (yet from my view point I can't
see how that conclusion could be
reached by one so intelligent and pa
triotic as I believe you to be) I would
respectfully ask you?why? Per
haps, after giving the subject serious
thought you would see how unstable
your poeHlon was and like a wise one,
"repent from tbe error of your way"
and come over on the right side. A
very cordial weloome awaits you.

Thank you, kind neighbor, who halls
from Lisbon for words of appreciation
from you. As it will be impossible
for me to attend the great National
Com Show, I am delighted to hear
we are to be ably represented and I
therefore delogate to you the pleasing
duty, to give us, who are lesB for
tunate than you, a report of this very
interesting exposition. Its coming to

be proud of a recognition that the

one, yet to mo, especially there 1b a

of course is to be the especial feature
yet there are to bo other interesting
exhibits. That from Winthrop will In

a modest little gingham dress, made
by a little daughter of mine. When
tho reports came at Christmas time
the hearts of our little girls boat high
with joy?they had passed. "What did
you make in Agriculture"? queried I.
"A double star" was the proud reply.
"What did you- get In sewing?" asked
I of the other, "A star" was the glad
response. "Are you not anxious to
hear what we made in the other
studies?" they asked in astonishment.
No, I'm so proud of your good report
In sewing?that has been the bane
of my life?you'll find that art to be
the one thing needful when you face
life in all seriousness?more than

"Did you make that waist you have
on?" querried a minister's wife, as
she met me in tho street one day in a
distant city. "I'm storry to tell you,
Mrs. A?" I replied, "I did not, that
is one accomplishment that I sadly
lack." "Con you cook?" I replied in
the affirmative?"Oh!" she effusively
responded, "how I do wish my hus
band had married you!" Seeing my
look of astonishment she explained:
"You see, my dear, he is Just daffy
over wives that can cook?I can't
cook but I can sew. Isn't it strange
that a man.though he has the choice
of picking out his wife (you know
Child, we have to take the ones we can
get) don't pick out the one that can
do the things they especially like?
Nine times out of ten they pick out
the one who can't and then find fault
with her the balance of her life." "Oh
dea!" and she heaved an exagerated
sigh?"It does look like that Mr. A.?
after he has lived with me as long
as he has, would have found out by'
now that I not only can't cook, but
I never intend to!" and looking at the

the tip of her wellshod feet to the nob

the Are of youth flashed from the

E?6 LAYING COKTtST.
The current issue of Farm and
Fire-side contains the result of two
great egg laying contests. Cue was
held at Siorrs, Conn., at the Oonnec.
ticut Experiment Station, and 490
heue contested. The other was held
at the Missouri State Poultry Exper
iment Station, Mountain Grove, Mo.,
where 665 hens contested. Follow
ing is an extract:
"The champion laying hen in the
Missouri contest was 'Lady Bhowyou',
a White Plymouth Rock hailing from
Illinois. This hen laid 281 eggs
during the year. She lacked but one
egg of equaling the best official rec
ord made in this country, which was
282 eggs laid by a Barred Rook at
eggs averaged a little over two oun
ces each, a total weight of 35 pounds
for her year's production.
"Tho heaviest layer In the Connec
ticut contest was a S, C. Rhode
Island Red. She produeed 254 eggs
which weighed 32 pounds.
"There -were 41 hens in the Con
necticut contest that laid over 200
oggs eaoh during the yoar, the aver
ago of these high producers being
223 eggs por hen. One hen out of
laid over 200 eggs. In the Missouri
contest the average for the 59 hens
laying over 200 eggs was 251 eggs
"The 655 hens in the Missouri con
test laid an average of 134 eggs per
hen. The 490 in the Connecticut con
test laid an average of 153 oggs per
hen. The contesting hens came from
nearly every section of the country
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from
the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mex
ico, also several pens from Canada
and one from England in the Conneo->
"The Austrlians are in advance of
the breeders of this country in breed,
ing for egg production. The leading
pen in the Connecticut contest aver
aged 214 eggs per hen, and in the
Missouri contest 208 eggs per hen,
but the leading pen in the Australian
contest which recently closed, aver
aged 250 eggs per hen. Also, in the
gathered from 60 different breeders
made an average of nearly 20? eggs
per hen for the entire 300. But they
have been conducting these contests
in that country for ten years or
longer, and the people have been
educated to breed for egg production.
The average fanm hen does not lay
more than 80 eggs per year at pres
ent. If we can raise the average
to oven 150 or 160 eggs per hen, we
can double or treble the profit in
