end a generous slice daily to each
Jrccdcr. Meat meal, where obtain
able will be found cheap, and if boiled
in a kettle and mixed with a mash of
equal parts of bran and shorts or corn
meal, will be greedily eaten by the
fowls, but if fed dry by hopper meth
od, there arc very few birds that will
relish it. Where obtainable, the re
fuse of the slaughter-house will be
found the best audi cheapest meat
I food; beef, mutton and pork entrails,
hearts, lights and livers, kidneys and
hogs' cars when run through a coarse
fdod chopper or bone-mill, will be
greedily devoured by all ages of poul
try, from the wee chick to the oldest
cock-bird.
Green fond in some form is a most
important item of the diet where egg
: production is sought, and as a rule is
, w cheap and plentiful in sections
1 where alfalfa is grown that it should
form the chief basis of winter feed
for poultry. Alfalfa is so rich in pro
tein, that most potent of all egg pro
ducing elements, that it should be fed
daily. Green leaves gathered from
about the stacks and fed in troughs
will be greatly relished, but where
scalded for ten minutes and mixed
with a mash with a sprinkling of salt,
it will be found all that is desired in
the way of green food. Second in
importance to the alfalfa will be
found cut clover leaves and the best
is red clover. There is no better
green feed grown than growing red
clover for fowls of all ages and none
to which they will take, -so kindly and
so quickly.
Wc have now provided the fowls
with all the elements necessary for
winter feeding, namely, grain, mcac
and green food barley, slaughter
house refuse and alfalfa these com
prise practically all that is required,
and with the food acccssori s, shell
aiid grit, with clean water mnd com
fortable quarters, tire birds should
come through the winter and enter
into the spring work in the very pink
of condition, leaving .behind a winter
egg record that should make the own-
er happy with eggs ranging from 40
to 60 cents per dozen in the open
market-.

A CHANCE SHOT.
To the turkey that was tame epi
cures the country over prefer the tur
key that was wild. However, clergy
men arc notoriously not epicurean in
their tastes, and a certain Methodist
preacher in Baltimore had) once defi
nitely expressed a preference for the
domestic bird. Accordingly, when
one day last winter, he accepted an
invitation to dine with a member of
his congregation, that member, in or
dering 'the dinner of the colored ser
vant, laid stress upon this point.
"Now remember, Ezckiel," he com
manded, "Doctor Fourthly likes do
mestic turkey. You will therefore
discontinue your usual practice, and
get not a wild but a tame one."
"Yassir," nodded the darkey.
"Understand?" repeated the host-to-bc.
"A domestic turkey."
Again the negro assented, and,
though the family funds were at a
low ebb, the dinner of his providing
proved most elaborate. How so lit
tle money went so far was a mystery
until the host began to carve the
turkey.
Then a thimbleful of shot rolled out
upon the platter.
"Ezckiel," said the host severely,
"I thought I told you to get a do
mestic turkey."
"Yassir," said Ezckiel. "That there'
a domestic turkey. Ah knows it."
"But," objected the host, "look ar
the shot in it."
Ezckiel grinned sheepishly.
"Yassir," he stammed. "Ah Ah
sees 'em, sir; but them thar shot
wasn't meant for the turkey, sir; they
was meant fer me."
WHITE MAN'S BURDEN.
"There was a white man out in
Montana," said Senator Carter, "who
was called Steve Crow. He lived
with the Indians for forty years, mar
ried a squaw and raised) a family.
Finally, his wife died, his children
threw him out, and he drifted up to
Seattle, where he married again.
"After a tirrae he returned to Mon
tana and said his second wife had
secured a divorce from him.
"'What happened, Steve?' askcd a
friend.
"'Why,' Steve replied, 'that there
woman didn't know when she had a
good thing. I married her and built
a cabin out on the flats. It wasn't
my land, but I lived there for a while.
She didn't appreciate her advantages.
Why, every morning I went out on
the flats and gathered a bushel of
clams, and all she had to do was to
shuck 'cm and cook 'cm.'"
PILGRIMS ALL.
Just a little laughter,
Just a little woe,
Just a flash of summertime
Till the roses go,
Just a little handclasp;
That's the toll you pay
If you go a-travcling
The Heart's Highway.
Through the sunny weather,
Under cloudless skies,
Oh, how fair the road is I .
Oh, how bright Her eyes I
Sure there's not a danger
Could your soul dismay
When you start a-travcling
The Heart's Highway.
Nay, but not forever
Is the sun at noon;
Creeping shadows gather
Far too swift and soon;
Hold her hand the tighter
When the skies grow gray;
Only that brings morning on
The Heart's Highway I
A
DINNER - TABLE PERSIFLAGE.
Once Richard Mansfield, Coquclin,
the French actor, and Sara Bernhardt
played in Chicago at the same time.
Coquclin, thinking to stretch out a
dramatic hand across the sea, gave a
dinner to which he invited many
friends and reserved the seats of hon
or for Bernhardt and Mansfield.
Mansfield was late. When he did
arrive he sat gloomily in his chair
next to Bernhardt. She sought to
make some conversation.
Mansfield turned and regarded the
great French actress with much in
terest. Everybody listened to hear
what Ik juld say.
"Ah, he commented pleasantly, af
ter his scrutiny, "I observe you wear
your makeup off the stage well as
on."
