It Was a Bantam, and When It Began Crowing In the Night Something Happened Alimony Question Again Spoken Of. t LCopyright, M07, by C. H. Sutcliffe. When Mr. Bowser reached home the other evening ho was carrying a hat box with numerous holes punched in the cover, and as ho carefully set it down in the front hall, with a com placent smile on his face, Mrs. Bowser queried: "A new hat, eh? What style is It?" "Never mind the style until after din ner. It's ready, I suppose';" "Yes, but you have half a dozen hats around the house already. Why did you buy a new one?" For reply he laughed and led the way down to the dining room. He was in groat good nature, but he refused to answer any questions touching the hat. Mrs. Bowser finally decided In her own mind that it was a hat he had taken down to bo pressed and reshaped, and the meal had been half finished when something like a scream was heard from upstairs, and with a "By thun der!" on his lips Mr. Bowser rose up and dashed from the room. She fol lowed him, and what she saw ou reach ing the front hall was the. hatbox be ing rolled over and over on the floor by the cat. while smothered screams came from the Interior. "You villain, I'll have your life!" shouted Mr. Bowser at the cat as he rushed forward. "For mercy's sake, what have you got in that box?" "None of your business! It's come to a pretty pass when I can't bring a box "the noire was the bantm boosteb CKOW1KG IN HIS BOX. into my own house 'without a curious woman and a yaller eyed old cat rais ing a ;ow about it. By the seven bulls of Bashan, I'll have that cat's lifo before he is two days older!" Heard a Queer Noise. The box was placed on top of the bookcase in the sitting room, the cat was hunted into -the cellar, and the Bowser family went back to their meal. Mr. Bowser was mad. and Mrs. Bowser didn't think it politic to say anything further, and so there was very little conversation going. For twenty-five minutes after going up' stairs nothing was said about the box Mrs. Bowser heard a suspicious scratching from the interior and thought of pet rabbits, coons and foxss, but made no inquiries. At length Mr. Bowser sat down and took the box on his knee nnd said: "There is no great mystery after all. There was a farmer in the office a few days ao, and bo was telling me about his bantam chickens. I was Interested, nnd today he sent me a rooster as a present. It is here in the box." "A rooster!" exclaimed Mrs. Bowser. "Why on earth should, he send you a rooster?" "Oh! Then it is the most wonderful thing that ever happened, is it? If a fanner wants to present me with a bantam rooster, I don't see anything so very paralyzing in the fact." "But what can you do with It?" "He said he firmly believed I could teach it to talk If I would spare a little time. Parrots talk, and I know of no reason why roosters shouldn't. If I could be the one to bring out a talking rooster. It would le n thing that all natural historians would sit up and take notice of." ! "Let's see him." Li, 'ted Out a Rooster. , Mr. Bowser removed the cover from the box and lifted out a bantam rooster I about as large as a turnip. The bird had been sadly ruffled by his roll on the floor of the hall, but when he had been smoothed down a little he pluck ed up courage and uttered a' defiant crow. It was a smiill rooster, but a Mg crow. It rang shrilly through the ! room, piercing the ears like the sound of a saw striking a nail in a board, and. while It made Mrs. Bowser cringe, i It brought a smile to Mr. Bowser's ', face. ; "Ever hear a parrot get off anything i like that?" he asked. "I believe, with ! the farmer, that this bird can be taught to talk. There was something like human speech in the last notes of his crow. I will place him on the chair , here and give him a first lesson. We i will begin by giving him a simple word. We will name bim Dick, and I will repeat Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick" "Dick" was Interrupted right there by the cat. He had sneaked upstairs to see what, was going on, and the sight of a cbicken standing on -a chair and peering about under the rays of eho gaslight was too much of a tempta tion. He bounded forward and seized the bantam In his mouth nnd would have been off with him had not Mr. Bowser made a quick kick. "By all the horn spoons ever made, there will be murder done In this house tonight!" he exclaimed ,ns he held the rooster up to view. No harm had been done. The little fellow was game, nnd he crowed again, while the cat, realizing that his oppor tunity had come and gone, fled away to be seen no more during the evening. "You shouldn't have brought such a thing home," said Mrs. Bowser as she looked from the bird to the feathers scattered over the floor. "What! I can't bring a bantam roost er of any other kind of rooster Into my own house? Explain that remark, Mrs. Bowser. I want to know wheth er I run this bouse or whether you and that villainous old cat are bossing things." "You know that a cat will always go for a bird." she replied. "Then there'll bo no cat around here, I'll break his neck before I sleep to night." Mrs. Bowser wisely maintained si lence, and after petting the bantam for awhile Mr. Bowser got In better tem per and observed: "As I said at the beginning, I should like to make an experiment on this bird. I see no reason why he shouldn't learn to talk. He looks ten times as bright as any parrot I ever saw. If a dunk headed old parrot can chatter, this rooster ought to be able to delivei an oration." "But has a rooster the same sort of tongue as a parrot?" Mrs. Bowser Doubtful. . "It is to be presumed so. Why should nature give them different tongues! An American has the same sort of tongue as a Chinaman, hasn't he?" "Well, you can experiment, and 1 wish you luck. I'll see that the cat is turned outdoors, and you can leave yout rooster In the box for the night." Half an hour later the Bowsers went upstairs to bed. Mr. Bowser had tak en a deep scientific interest in the rooster question, and he was repeating the name Dick, Dick, Dick to himself when he fell asleep. Two hours later Mrs. Bowser awoke him with a nudge and the exclamation: "For the land's sake, get up! Don't you hear that queer noise?" "W-what is It?" he asked as he sat up. "It's either that all the water pipes downstairs have burst or the furnace is getting ready to blow up." Three minutes later he was down stairs, nnd the mystery was solved. The noise was the bantam rooster crowing in his box. He crowed as Mr. Bowser stood and looked at the box, and he crowed as the cover was taken off. It was a crow so shrill that It stopped pedestrians on the street. "What is it?" called Mrs. Bowser over the banister. "Don't you know that people are stopping at the gate?" "It's this Infernal little rooster! There he goes again! By John, who ever heard of a rooster crowing at this hour of the night?" "Perhaps he's learning to talk." "And perhaps you get back into bed and stay there!" Crow Awoke Bowser. There was another long, shrill crow from the bantam, and then Mr. Bow ser's fingers grasped his neck, nnd the crow died away in a gurgle. The bird was dead before the front door was reached, and the three or four men at the gate caught sight of a man on the front steps as he gave the corpse a fling Into their midst. Then the door banged, and they said to each other: "It's a rooster, and he must have brought the old man down with his crowing, but he didn't give the little feller a fair show." At the same time, upstairs in the house, Mr, Bowser was saying to Mrs. Bowser: "I understand just how this thing came about. You sneaked down while I was asleep and stuck a hatpin into that poor bird. In the morning, Mrs. Bowser in the morning we will con sult our respective lawyers and fix the amount of alimony." M. QUAD. SEASONABLE SOUPS. At the Club. w " Tested P.ccipes For Cheap and Easily Made Soups. Browu Broth. Put two tablespoon fnls of butter in a frying pan, add two tablespoonfuls of chopped onions nnd two of chopped carrots and cook until a golden brown. Put these in a kettle with n quart of boh.'ng water and a bay leaf nnd simmer fifteen minutes. Press through a sieve. While the soup is simmering put about n tablespoon ful of sugar into an iron saucepan nnd when it browns and burns udd two tablespoonfuls of chopped onions, then two or three tablespoonfuls of water. Add this to the soup, with a teaspoon ful of salt and a saltspoouful of pep per. Strain the soup, return it iid let settle. Add half a pint of blocks of bread that have beeu stirred up with beaten eggs, bring to a boil and serve with grated cheese. Tomato Bouillon. Use one can of to matoes, add a pint of water, a slice of onion, a bay leaf, a little celery seed and boil rapidly for ten minutes. Press through a colander as much of the flesh as possible. Add the well beaten whites of two eggs, bring quickly to the boil ing point, boil five minutes and strain through cheesecloth. The fleshy por tion of tin tomato that remains in the cheesecloth may be put aside for fla voring sauces. Reheat the bouillon, add a cup of whipped cream and serve at ouce with strips of toasted bread. East Indian Soup. Put Into a kettle a tablespoonful of butter, two table spoonfuls of fine chopped onions, two tablespoonfuls of grated carrots nnd the same of grated turnips. Stir cure fully for about two minutes, add n quart of water or stock, a dash of red pepper, a little black pepper, a table spoonful of chopped parsley, a sliced apple and simmer gently for fifteen minutes. Add a tcaspoonful of curry and four or five tablespoonfuls of boil ed rice, which should be boiled while you are making the soup. Quick Turkish Soup. Stir a tcaspoon ful of beef extract into one quart of boiling water; add a tablespoonful of grated onion and a saltspoonful of cel ery seed. AVhen this reaches the boil ing point, pour it slowly over the well beaten yolks of two eggs. Have ready drained four tablespoonfuls of boiled rice; add and serve at once. Cream of Potato Soup.

Stir until thoroughly heated and serve. Stands For Spools of Cotton. Women who do a great deal of sew ing will find a little stand to hold spools of cotton a great convenience. The only materials required are a solid piece of wood perhaps an inch thick and either round or square for the base and either a knitting needle or a round piece of wood some six inches long for the upright piece. If the needle Is used it can be forced Into the wood of the base, but In case the slender round piece of wood is pre ferred it can be kept in place with a screw or long tack. This holder has place for three or four spools of cot ton, which revolve freely when yon take hold of an end of the thread and begin to draw it off. The point of the holder makes a convenient resting place for a thimble. Of course if you are of a decorative turn of mind you will sandpaper your wooden base and then paint or stain it. How to Walk Upstairs. A physician, describing how a per son should walk upstairs, says: "Usu ally a person treads on the ball of his foot in taking each step. This is very tiresome nnd wearing to the muscles, as It throws the entire suspended weight of the body on the muscles of the legs and feet. You should In walk ing or climbing upstairs seek for the most equal distribution of the body's weight possible. In walking upstairs your feet should be placed squarely down on the step, heel and all, and then the work should be performed slowly and deliberately. In this way there is no strain upon any particular muscle, but each one is doing its duty in a natural manner." The doctor might nave gone a little further in the same line and protested against the habit which many persons have of bending half double when they ascend a flight of stairs. ; f MISS LOIS MAY ALDEN. A Woman to Start Farm School For City Wcifs. To reclaim city waifs by transplant ing them from the vitiating atmos phere of the city streets into a farm school is the attractive plan of a young New York woman, Miss Lois May Al den. If she is successful, hers will be the first farm home school in the coun try. In Warwick, England, such a home has been started, and it has suc ceeded remarkably well, drawing its pupils from the worst sections of Lon don. In order to become thoroughly con versant with farming in all its branch es Miss Alden has enrolled herself as a member of the State Agricultural school at New Brunswick, N. J., where free courses in agriculture have been recently Instituted. She is registered both 'for the animal husbandry and the market gardening and fruit growing make it carefully,' and the best way to make it Is the simplest. The following is perfectly simple and satisfactory: (Jet i. p'ut measure or larger tin, bcr.t it' witn boiling water, put in one large heaped up teaspoonful of ground coffee to each person. Nearly fill with boil ing water, place the tin ou the fire and stir slowly until a creamy froth corner to the top. Have a warmed jug or cof feepot ready, into which pour the cof fee slowly through muslin, even strain Ing through a thick sediment which re mains with the grains. Your eoTee Ji then ready for immediate use and uiaj be boiled up repeatedly without being renewed. A very good tip when mak ing a new brew Is to pour on the grains the sediment nnd a little of the cold coffee usually kept In the coffeepot and thrown out by the maid. Even the grains should not be wasted, as they make excellent mold for delicate plants. ' : Macaroon Whip. Macaroon whip is simply and easily made. Soak one-quarter of a package of gelatin In one-quarter of n cupful of cold water. Grate or crumble one quarter of a pound of stale, dry maca roons. Cut very fine one dozen can dled cherries. Stand the gelatin over hjt water until dissolved, then add to it one cupful of very heavy cream with half a cupful of sifted powdered sugar, two tablespoonfuls of sherry and a few drops of almond extract. Watch closely and as soon as it nhows signs of thickening whip the whites of two eggs to a froth, add them to the cream and whip the mix ture until It is a solid froth. Lightly mix in the macaroon crumbs and half of the cherries. Turn into a serving dish and sprinkle the remainder of the cherrias over the top. Keep very cold until served. MISS LOIS MAY ALDEN. courses nnd so far is the only woman in these classes. For some years there has been n government experiment sta tion at this point, but not until now have the special courses for students been offered, and when several fine buildings now under process of con struction are finished the plant will be quite complete. Miss Alden-has bad this idea in her mind since she was a small child, and as she grew older it seemed to her the only practical solution of the pfoblem of what to do with the children of the city's streets. "I have always cherished a passion for farming and also for helping friend less and homeless children. To com bine the two seems the most delightful thing I could do," she said in speaking of her plans. "Nature will do more In a minute for these children than stereo typed book instruction in a month. In learning to love nature they will learn to love one another. It is my plan to secure a plot of ground somewhere near a city where produce can he raised and disposed of easily. There farming and market gardening will be taught. This will not only give the children a home, but it will give them a vocation. There is money In whole sale gardening for those who prepare for the work scientifically. "There will be, first of all, an attrac tive home life. Boys and girls will be equally divided In numbers. They may enter the home anywhere from twelve to fifteen yeare old. A regular sched ule will be carried out. There will be studios in the morning and afternoon relating to the agricultural course, with practical demonstratl&is. They will make their own gardens and take care of the dairy, and there will be instruction in animal husbandry on the side. There will also be the household duties, each child doing his or her own share, in order to give them the idea of the domestic side of farm life."

If garments are not cleaned before they are laid away and there are moth eggs in them, neither camphor nor any other preventive will keep them from developing and eventually destroying the fur. If furs are well brushed and freed from dust, they need not be packed away in any of the much used moth preventives. In packing furs away for the sum mer they should first be well aired, ilcaned and sunned or moths' eggs that are not visible novV may develop during, the hot weather. The whipping of the furs should con tinue until no dust arises. Then the pieces should be put out in the sun shine for a day or two and then beaten ngtiln.

No one wants a gloomy room, but what to do with such a room is a prob lem that has bothered more than one of us. Many a woman has foregone inside curtains and even sash curtains to al low all the light possible to come into the room, but still it looks dreary. It is not as much the light that we need ns the sunshine, and when this cannot be bad we must make it, or, rather, get the effect of it. A room with a northern aspect should not, of course, be papered in blue or some such cold color, but rather in rich, warm tone3 of olive, green, brown, red or yellow. If the room gets but little light and sunshine, yellow should be our choice. Not only should we have yellow on the walls, but also on the ceiling, for the sake of the reflec tion. A pretty treatment is to have n light pumpkin yellow on the walls as far as the picture molding and a light er shade above this and on the coiling. Then yellow silk sash curtains, pulled back, tend to make a room sunny. I Brass can make a wonderful differ ' ence to a dreary room. A large Jar diniere with a plant in it placed in u , dark corner will lighten up most mar- velously. The andirons, too, will givo a cheery reflection. Even candlesticks help and little trays and bowls, be they ever so small. The importance of brass in a sunless room cannot be too ; strongly emphasized. Mirrors bright en up, and so do some pictures, with well polished glasses and glided frames, but these little points are too seldom taken into consideration. - Do You Know , That yon can make a faded dresa perfectly white by washing it in boil In;? water? That fait, dissolved in alcohol, will often remove grease spot3 from cloth ing? That two potatoes grated in a basi; of water will give better results than soap In washing delicate flannel and woolen goods, ribbous, etc.? That piano keys can be cleaned, a can any old ivory, by bein? rubbed with muslin dipped in alcohol? That a little thin cold starch rubbed over windows and mirrors and then wiped off with a soft cloth is an easy way of producing most shinlug results' Thnt hot milk is even' better than boiiing water to take out fruit stains? A Clotheshorse Hint. Where there is very little room the following suggestion will make a very good substitute for that domestic ani mal, the clotheshorse, which is easily carried out by the home carpenter: From the carpenter obtain several dowels or white round sticks. At tht-j hardware store get some brackets! Place the brackets In a manner ta bring the dowels across a corner of thf kitchen, nnd on them the clothes may be hung to air. During the week the dowels may be removed and put away in a corner or mny lie used to han? dish towels to dry. This arrangement does away with the dangling line that is of great annoyance to the taller members of the family. The Dressing Table. Simple little covers for the dressing table are made of the mercerized charibray that comes in such pretty shades of pink nnd blue, and they make an agreeable change from the white ones in such constant use. The cover is made just the size re quired, with the additlou of four inches all round, which is turned up on the right side and hemmed down by the means of further stitching done in heavy white mercerized cotton. The corners are mitered carefully so as to be quite flat and are blind stitched down. Hair Gschets. Scent sachets for use in the hair may be easily made, nnd in this respect it should be borne in mind that in shape they should be very narow, not wider than a finger, to allow them to be pin ned beneath the coils before the hair is dressed.- They shouid be covered with lace net so that the hairpins may go through them. In the center of each place a tiny roll of cotton filled witb the favorite sachet powder. A Dry Shampoo. Orris root powder dusted over the hair is often a substitute for frequent shampooing. Sprinkle the powder into the hair and rub it well into the scalp; then brush it out. Orris is one of the few powders which may be used for this purpose, as It will not stop tho pores. It is cleansing and will give a faint sweet odor to the hair. Black kid gloves generally wear out at the finger tips and then assume a rusty brown tint, which is anything but pleasant, although the other part of the glove may be perfectly good. When this happens, take a little black ink, mix it with a small quantity of olive oil and apply it to the finger tips. Leave it until dry, and the gloves will be very much Improved in appearance. Photographs that have become soiled or that are mounted on cards the edges of which are broken may be soaked off by placing them In water. This cleans them, but does not injure them in the least and after drying thoroughly between blotters they may be mounted again on new cards. The Secret of Good Coffee. The real secret of having good coffw lies In two thingsbuy the best and Kerosene rubbed into boots and shoes which have been hardened by water will soften them. Rubbing witb a woolen rag saturated in kerosene will also brighten tin and granite ware.
