When Mr. Jenkins went to his bed
room al half-past one, it was with the
determination of going lo sleep, and
with another determination that he
would not be interviewed by Mrs. Jen
kins. So, as soon as he had entered the
door, and deposited his lamp upon the
dressing-table, he commenced his
speech: "I locked the front door. I put
the chain on. 1 pulled the key out a
little bit. The dog is inside. 1 put the
kitten out. I emptied the dnppan of
the refrigerator. The cook took the
silver to bed with her. I put a cane
under the knob of the back hall door.
1 put the fastenings over the bathroom
windows. The parlor fire has coal on.
1 put the cakebox back in the closet.
1 did not drink all the milk. It is not
going to rain. Nobody gave me any
message for you. 1 mailed your letter
as soon as 1 got down-town. Your
mother did not call at the office. No
body died thai we are interested in.
Did not hear of a marriage or engage
ment. 1 was very busy at the office
making out bills. I have hung my
clothes over chair-backs. 1 want a new
egg for breakfast. I think that is all,
and I will now put out the light." Mr.
Jenkins felt that he had hedged against
all inquiry, and a triumphant smile
was upon his face as he took hold of the
gas-check, and sighted a line for the
bed, when he was earthquaked by the
query from Mrs. Jenkins: "YY'hy didn't
you take off your hat?"

By the time Halley's comet arrives
it will have lost the last shred of its
Astronomers have already declared
that it will not consume the earth.
Sir David Gill, late astronomer royal
at the Cape, went so far in a lecture at
the Horticultural hall recently as to
deny that it can exercise any political
influence or even affect the weather.
"People always seem to have thought
that something was sure to happen
every time a comet became visible,"
he said, "as if something did not hap
en every day. How can a comet a
hundred millions of miles away cause
a flood in Paris, say, and dry weather
in Egypt, on the same day?
"Halley's comet appeared in 1835,
and it is to appear again in May. Ac
carding to the superstitious, it must be
a political comet, because the repres
entation of the two main parties in the
house of commons is practically the
same now as it was in 18P>5.
"18.>5 there was a dissolution, and
this year also there is lo be a dissolu
tion," he declared, amid laughter.
: 'There were 386 liberals an is;ss, and
there ;>9:i in 1910, while the number of
the opposition is exactly the same now
"YY'hen the comet appeared in 1006,"
he continued, the pope of that day, it
is alleged, denounced the comet, the
Turks and the devil in one bull. But
it has been shown that the excom
munication applied to the Turks and
the devil only, and not to the comet.
"Comet's tails turn always away
from the sun. The worst of it is that
nobody knows exactly what they are.
"Some people think they consist of
very minute matter thrown off by the
action of the sun, and others think the
tails are electrical affairs, because they !
cannot believe the tails could travel so
He added that the comet would give
its most gorgeous display on May 21.
The Call of the Blood

boils, sallow complexion, a jaundiced
look, moth patches and blotches on the
skin—all signs of liver trouble. But

fine complexion, health. Try them.

Friends, fellow citizens and toilers,
lend me your ears while we puncture
this latest fallacy called "Fletcherism,"
Fletcher says, "chew each bite .!2
times." lam now talking to working"
men who earn their wage by the sweat
of their brow. Men, let us say you eat
the equivalent of four slices of bread at
each meal. Each slice of bread should
contain 10 bites. Four times 10 bites
is 40 bites. Each bite chewed :>2 times
equals 1,280 bites. Allowing a half
minute for each :12 bites, it will require
648 minutes of more than 10 hours to
consume one meal, and more than 90
hours for three meals. Gentlemen, I
ask you in all sincerity, where are you
going to get the time to cam the money
for that bread ? YY'hat!
Staunton People Have Abso
lute Proof of Deeds at Home.
It is not words, but deeds that|prove
true merit.
The deeds of Doan's Kidney Pills,
for Staunton kidney sufferers, have
made their local reputation.
Proof lies in the testimony of Staun
ton people who have been cured to stay
William L. Rohr, 1041 Front street,
Staunton, Va., says: "I used Doan's
Kidney Pills, and the results were sat
isfactory. Kidney complaint was
with me for a long time and I suffered
from severe pains in my back and
sides. Stooping or lifting caused sharp
twings to dart through me and I had
to have assistance in getting out of
bed. The kidney secretions were very
irregular in passage, and I had but
little control over them. 1 tried sev
eral advertised remedies, but received
no relief until I procured Doan's Kid
ney Pills at Thomas Hogshead's drug
store. 1 continued takir.g Doan's
Kidney Pills until I was completely
cured. I publicly recommended
Doan's Kidney Pills six years ago,
and to-day 1 am pleased to state that
the cure has remained permanent."

The Modern Visiting Card,
YY'hile it would be difficult to say just
when visiting cards were first used, we
are quite certain of the fact that they
are not of very ancient date. Appar

on the continent. It was probably
about 1700 that they came into fashion
in Great Britain, and it was as late as
1770 when they were introduced in
Paris. It appears that the first visit
ing cards were regular playing cards,
the backs of which were used for the
address.—Chicago Examiner.

The Number Feeding Wet Maah Ap
pear* to Be Increasing, a* Re
sults Given Are Better.
Most poultrymen feed mash—some
wet, some dry. The number feeding
the latter appears to be Increasing.
Its advocates claim equal or greater
results, healthier and more vigorous
stock, and better results at hatching
time, and there certainly is a sarins
of labor. There is no questioning the
fact that mazing and carrying wet
mash for any considerable number of
hens is hard work and takes time.
What do the hens say about dry
mash? We have tried It in a small
way, and I have been surprised to
see how readily hens that had been
accustomed to wet mash took to it,
says a writer in Good Literature. We
have fitted out five pens with home
made dry-feed hoppers, and are trying
it on the hens this winter. A cut of
one of these hoppers is shown here
with. It is made from a soap box 20
inches long, 8 inches deep and 15
inches wide, inside measure. The
throat at the bottom is two inches, and
the tray part is two inches deep. The
cover is made sloping to discourage
any ease-loving hen from taking an
after-mash siesta thereon. Leather
hinges are used on some of ours. This
hopper might be made with the box
on end, making a shorter tray and
less exposed surface, If preferred.
Self-Feeding for Dry Mash.
These dry-feed hoppers mads of
wood or galvanized iron may be pur
chased from poultry supply houses.
They may be a little more artistic,
but no better for practical purposes.
Another style of hopper for feeding
wet mash consists of two triangular
end pieces 20 inches high, to which
are fastened one by two inch strips,
and to these are nailed the upright
strips, about two inches wide, sharp
at the upper ends. On one side these
are nailed fast, but on the other the
lower longitudinal strip is rounded at
the ends, these ends being fitted into
an auger hole In the triangular piece,
thus making a sort of gate which is
opened to put the feed into the trough.
A wire hook at the middle fastens
this to the other side when closed.
The trough is about five inches high,
V-shaped, and rests in V-shaped cleats
at each end, so that it may be re
moved readily for cleaning. We have
two of these feed troughs which have
been in use several years. The trough
in one of them is made of wood, in
the other of galvanized iron. The lat
ter is now rusted through in several
places, while the wooden one is good
for several years more of use. These
feed racks or troughs may be made
of any desired length.
He have, also, a couple of the same
! racks, about 18 Inches square,
designed for water. They were very
satisfactory while they lasted, but
the galvanized iron pans rusted out in
a couple of years. One of these was
built with a space under the pan so
that some hot bricks might be put
(in cold weather to keep the
from freezing. These devices
>c purchased from some poultry
r houses, though I think th*

lo Fear from the Chickens.
aes not require a very large plot
rly vegetables and small garden
and no fear of the chickens
I be felt. The large fields of
tnd potatoes can in most cases
planted at some distance
the poultry house, and in any
the fowls will harm them little
after they get a good start. But by
no means would we be without a
place in which we could confine the
hens when desired at seed and har
vest time and of course breeding hens
must be fenced. In this manner the
parks do not require to be so large
as when confined constantly, and
fowls can be given their freedom a
greater part of the season. On this
I a larger egg yield will be secured
c the greater profit.
Fence Out the Chickens.
great many farmers and others do
keep fowls because they claim
destroy so much garden truck
grain. That it is far better for
to run at large most of the time
;nerally conceded, and of course
no one can have a garden with hens
in it. The matter can be easily ar-'
ranged by having the garden fenced
in and the hens fenced out, contrary
to the usual method, a fence four feet
high will answer and the fence can
be removable and of a temporary char
