Junior Snow Denies Father Erred In Cousinly Relations Chester A. Snow, Jr., who expects shortly to be flying "somewhere In France," dropping bombs on Ger mans, took a preliminary tourse to day by directing a verbal attack on the case of his stepmother. Mrs. Addis H. Snow, who is suing his seventy-three- ear-old father in the District Supreme Court for an absolute di vorce The college jouth. who already hasj qualified as an aviator, but who isj not quite old enough to Join thej American aviation section, stanchly defended the reputation of his father j ana or his cousin, airs, aiauae a. Emory The hearing of the case was ad vanced last May In order to allow him . to testify before sailing to Join the French army, where Ms joutn win not bar him Atteatlve to Stepmother. On direct examination he admitted palng much attention to his step mother, riding and dancing with her and acting as her escort, until Mrs. Snow and Mrs Emory quarreled, and arrangements were made In the Snow home so they would not meet at the table. "I was filled with resentment. I was humiliated." said the witness with some heat when recalling this In cident. "I felt like my own mother had been turned out of the house, for Maude alwaya had acted as a mother toward me " "How did this affect your attitude toward Mrs Snow-" asked Attorney Hoover, who represents Mr Snow. "I never felt the same toward her after that." "What was your father's habit with regard to kissing Mrs Emory!" he was asked a few minutes later. Ills -Ikor Is Startling. "He kissed her only rarely, and us ually when he waa going away. He was very undemonstrative One time when we were leaving the house to go away he aald, 'Oh, I've forgotten to kiss Maude goodby I said to him. -Go back and do 1C which he did." Asked by Mr Hoover If he had ever noticed anything to criticise In the relations of his father and Mra. Emory, the witness- shouted "No'" so suddenly and loudly that everyone In the courtroom was startled The cross-examination of the son by Attorney Henry A. Davis lasted only a short time, and developed lit tle not brought out In direct exami nation. He was the last of the Imme diate members of the Snow family to be called to the stand, and It Is prob able that the taking of testimony will be concluded late today. Snow said that since the death of his mother (the first Mrs Snowf, in 1910, he had regarded Mrs. Emory as a mother "I have always looked upon her aa a mother since my own mother died, he said. Many Leve Letters Heard. The case has brought out for the record and public scrutiny many love lettera exchanged between the aged defendant and his comparatively oung fiancee and bride Attorney Henry E. Davis read into the record letters from Mr Snow to Miss Hu bsrd. then Attorney George P Hoov er, representing the husband, pio-l duced pscket after packet of letters) from Mrs. Snow, then Miss Hubartl. to her wooer "Very dear Mr Snow." was thej usual salutation of Miss Hubard in addressing her Intended husband While the letters of his wife veroi being pressnted late yesterday a few were read and many others filfd for future reading Mr Snow sat on ' the witness stand and appeared ti take a rather bored and regretful Interest In the proceedings Mrs Sno.v smiled occasionally at some love pai. ssge and again she bit her lips as her husband a attorney stressed some endearing line, with the evident pur pose of endeavoring to convince the I court that Miss Hubard was more ardent In her love lettera than Mr., Snow. Denies He Denied God. I Just before Mr Snow left the stsnd. Attorney Davis shot at him this ques tion: "Do you believe In God" "Do you" retorted Mr Snow "I do." ssld Attorney Davis "I believe in God as much as you do," answered Mr Snow, rather re-1 sentfully "Is that your answer?" "Yes" "Hate you not stated Just to the contrary In the past?" persisted Mr Davis "No" fairly shouted Mr Snow, with anger rising A moment later he told Mr Davis he didn't Intend "to enter Into a discussion of theology," and the Incident waa closed Don't "Rush the 11 Mows," Here are extracts from some of the letters Miss Hubard wrote Mr Snow before they were married. "I am sitting up In my room some today and hope to be entirely well In a day or so Please don't forget and 'rush the widows' or do anything else desperate before I see you again.' This wss dated June IB. 1012 "It was so nice to find your pictures when I went down for the mail this morning." says a letter from Miss Hubard sent from "Arcady" February 27 1912 "They are very good, but they are not as good looking as the original I wish you were up here with me, but I am always wishing that, and I am going to stop before I write you a very silly letter, in deed" Miss Hubard dropped the "Dear Mr Snow" and -Very dear Mr Snow" ssl utstlon here and substituted "Dear Knight of the Holy Orall " Reproof for Abeence. "There does. Indeed, seem to have been a general misunderstanding." said a letter dated "Montesuma," Au tust IB, 1012 "After expecting each day since my Isat letter, to hear from you. your letter has finally come I could not imsglne what was the matter I waa divided In my feelings between being hurt and feellns angry Some times I felt you were sick and started to write and ask 'about you, but then I would think perhaps ou had Just lost Interest or were spinning around in your car with 'Anna' or some other 'rflren, and then, of course, 1 would not have written for anything I was dlssDBOtnted nil did nnt rnm Anwrf here. Of course, I really wanted you 'i otherwise I vsvid not have asked you, and when ou decided not to come I thought perhsps you had never meant any of It." "Dear Nicest Man in the World." Miss Hubard wrote Mr. Snow on June 3, sJ12 "You see I have found a name for jou a last. It la a little long, but I hope you like It. Do hurry up and come home Wash ington seems desolate without you " "It wss horrid of the man at the gate not to let you come through she wrote June 30, 1912. from "Colle ton," evidently refeflng to the gate man at the Union Station "I turned back to give ou a farewell wave of my hand, but ou were not looking In my direction You have brought so much happiness in my Ufa that I wonder how I ever got along without It." Likes "Being Spelled." From Colleton Miss Hubard wrote July 4. 1912, saying. "I am being badly spoiled here, and I like It.

A great many persons ask this qusstlon. and a great many more think of It. It is a very natural query. There Is no specific answer to It, of course, but It can be estimated close enough for practical purposes by a few general averages. To disre gard facts in the poultry business, as in any Industry. Is to Invite dis couragement, probably failure. Cer tain losses are almost certain to occur. The experienced breeder con siders these losses from the begin ning, with the result that he esti mates the need of hatching five eggs for each pullet contemplated. To claim that five eggs equal one pullet may sound dlscouraglngly low to the beginner, and there are many exceptions to the rule, nevertheless, on large commercial farms this aver age prevails; furthermore. It Is con sidered highly successful. What Are the Casus It lest We iUit with five eggs, from which we obtain one pullet: What happened to the other four eggs? Let us see. we must start with the Incu bator. Two eggs failed In the process of hatching from one cause or an otherInfertility, death in the shell, and so on. which represents a 60 per cent hatch, and this Is considered a very fair average for the season's work Of the three chicks hatched, one died In the brooder, amounting to the customary 33 per cent mor tality on farms where chicks are raised In large numbers. Of the two chicks reared to maturity one de veloped Into a cockerel, which-Is the customary BO per cent run of males, leaving a single pullet for the laying house. 4 It Is well to "hitch our wagon to a star" In this business, and to hope that we may hatch 93 per cent .of the exga set. rear 90 per cent of the chicks hatched, and pray that 80 per cent of those chicks will matur-lnto pullets: but It Is a poor plan to de pend upon such glowing averages. On the other bsnd. to assume that a mortality of 33 per cent la about nor mal, makes It appear as though young chickens were heir to and prone to contract, every dlseaf un der the solar system. Chicks are frail. It Is true, because they are a very Intensively construct ed organism, yet it Is th writer's experience that a greater mortality is due to accidents rather than dis ease, and by causes which should come within the attendant's controL In fact, the ways In wnich a chick may meet Its death are so numerous it would almost seem that they are born with suicidal Intentions. Beware of Rats and Other Aalmals. It Is unwise to brood chicks within fifty yards of old outbuildings, lest rata abound, or In a coop that offers a refuge for the pasts. Thousands of chicks are killed annually by rodents They are counted among the poultryman's greatest foes. Once let a rat get a taste of chick flesh and he will rob the brood of two or three members a day. tn broad day light. If necessary, and frequently under the very eyes of the attendant. Crows, hawks, cats, and other anl mels take their toll, and must be guarded against In some way As a rule, pet rata and dogs will not steal little chicks If these pets are fed at the farmhouse, but If left to forage for themselves the temptation win likely prove too strong, and we can not conscientiously blame them. A slogan Is sometimes effective against hawks and crows, though our friend, the "scare-crow," Is a more convenient way to combat the latter Weasels and other nocturnal marauders are best dealt with by the "ounce of pre caution" In the shape of fine mesh wire netting over all openings to ths coops It may be a little Inconven lent and troublesome to shut up all the buildings at dusk and open them at dawn, but I fa a pretty good life -in surance policy, nevertheless. reenllar Aftnlty for Water. For some obscure reason water has a peculiar fascination for chicks, and to those under a month's age It Is strangely fatal Immediately follow ing a thunder shower, especially toward evening, a brood of chicks will scamper outdoors and commence wad Ing In the puddles, or trudge through the long grsss and weeds In a short time they are wet and bedraggled. .chilled to the bone arid utterly miser able The strongest will find their way back to the brooder and dry off. but the weak ones become confused, shiver and chirp for help, and In the case of the artificial hatch, where there Is no Mistress Biddy to guide and comfort them, they quickly perish. Overcrowding Is one of the chief causes of death In young chickens. They do not sweat, as they have no sweat glands In the skin, consequent ly Impurities ind mo'sture that would be given off by this medium, must be gotten rid of through the lungs. This places an unusjal strain on all or gans. Overheating and underheatlni; a brooder are both detriments and should be guarded against, though the former Is usually considered the lesser of the two evils, for this rea son If the chicks are chilled they will erow-d together in corners and trample one anotbei to death In largo numbers, v liereas. if the heat is rx cesslve, while It Is .veakening, tho chicks will retire If possible to a com fortable distance and spread about without crowding If unable to ge awny from an Intense heat, then, of course, they will pant for breuth, which overburdens the heart action lapse Into a state of depression, and die SAME FAMILY NAME.

There Is reason to presume that the activities of these friends of Germany have not escaped the notice of Gov ernment agents, but no suggestion from any official source Indicates any violation of diplomatic ethics. Members of the various war missions to the United 8tates Lave been rather outspoken In their views as to the propriety of permitting the central power group to hare access to informa tion that might possibly be of mili tary value to Germany. It Is not understood, however, that they have made any complaint to the Administration or have suggested the banishment of the so-called "alien enemies." Because of the increasing agitation for a ban on the diplomats In question It Is expected that the Cabinet will take up the problem and seek a so lution. IF YOUR HORSE BALKS, TOUCH BUTTON, PRESTO!
