1 he practical man does not care so
much about breed and color as he
does about performance in the way
of supplying eggs. If you have a

it is only by paying attention to this
matter that a strain of good layers
can be perfected.

them in all out of door places.

As soon as the leaves begin to ran

In trie culture of strawberries it is
the highest economy to give the crop

When gooseberries are growing in
the full sun they sometimes mildew

Plants being grown for winter

have a mulch of fine manure now,

THE CHAMPION SHOT.
Sharpshooter DavlcUon the ltest Mun
the Whole Army.
The theory that a blue eye shoots
best has been exploded. The champ
ion marksman of the United States
army has a brown eye. With these two
brown eyes he shoots with both eves
onen he has beaten all shooting
records at all distances, in all positions
and under all circumstances.
This champion marksman is at San
tiago with the Sixteenth Infantry.
His one bronze medal and his six eolrt
ones bear the name of Richard N
Davidson. These medals testify that
he is the best shot in the whole United
States army. His comrades are proud
of him and are willing to pit him
a.-ainst the world.
Davidson enlisted In I'm. In ISilO he
won a third-class department bronze
medal for markmanship. Hi com

would be occupied in burnishing his

tiiat he would win a medal that would

And he did.
In lsl he won the first gold medal in
the team belonging to the Department
of the l'latte. InlKitthe again carried
oil the first medal in the same depart
ment with a score that has never been
beaten or even equaled since. This
famous score was (130 points out of a
possible f00. Later at Fort Sheridan,
Chicago, he captured the first-class golu
medal for moving target practice, the
object Im 1 lg at a distance of H) yards
and moving as fast as a man can move
in ordinary walking, three miles an
hour. In 1SH3 he whs awarded the first
"distinguished marksman" gold trophy,
the HutTalo medal. This is the great
est honor possible to a marksman in
the army. His score was WIV points out

The editor of the Albion (N. Y.)
News told his compositor that Hit

One day he had occasion to speak
of a townsman as a level-headed
man. The word "level" had too
many letters for the line of type in
which it was to appear. The printer,
bearing in mind the employer's in
junction, substituted "flat." It re
quired a personal apology and a
long explanation to save the editor
from assault and a libel suit.
