PIG AND THE LEMON. A Cute Plaything- That Any Hoy or , Girl Can Make. If some one of humorous miud were to ask why a pig ia like a lemon, you would be apt to think that he was giv Itxe you one of the most foolish conun druins, with the answer that fits all of them: "Because he isn't." But a lem on is like a pig, and the boy and girl readers of the Commercial Tribune can find it out for themselves if they will take the trouble to follow the instruc tions here given. First pick a lemon from the few you may find at home that looks like this: THE LEMON. If there isnU one at home, your gro cer or country storekeeper will allow you to pick over the box, and then you'll be sure to find one that will look something like the rough cut given above. Now, right in the snout, where the dotted line shows, you must take a sharp penknife, and cut a little slit for piggy's mouth. To give him a little understanding, take a few matches and sharpen them and shape them to look like pigs' feet, and insert them at the proper places. If you wanted him seat ed like a contented pig, you must stick them on a slant, and Mr. Piggy will look like this: THE LEMON PIG COMPLETED. Piggy is eyeless and tailless now, but we will soon fix him so that he can al most squeak. Get a couple of black pins from your mamma, and stick them in at or about the places where the eyes are. A little piece of soft wire, or even gray yarn, can be used to make his tail, only it must be rigid enough to stand a little curling when it has been put on with a pin. For his ears little pieces of wood or flannel can be used and put on with pins that do not show. Of course, you can follow the patterns here given, or you can suit your own fancy. You will not miss matters very seriously even at the worst. Now the pig ia lemon-colored, and there are not many pigs of that kind. To correct this, take a little ink, or even a charcoal crayon, and smear the little fellow iu odd ways, and you will have a dirty piggy, with some yel low blotches, where the lemon skin shows through. Then he will look more natural, for piggies that are too clean don't look like piggies at all. In the whittling and localities where the legs ought to be you may have to get papa or an old brother to help you, but even if they are not willing, go along by yourself, and when you are through the older ones in the family Willi think you have a pretty good kind of pig after all. When you are tired of him he will make good lemonade, and that is more than can be paid of a real live pig. Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. 4 , .He Ranted t Praj, Too.

Last summer he very much wanted to earn some money of his own. He thought of all the schemes that he ever had heard of and then he started an entirely new one. He went to Mr. O'Marrow, who had just opened a bak ery in Fifty-fifth street, and said that if he was supplied with a horse ana wagon he thought he could get up a ALL BUSINESS. profitable route of customers. Mr. O'Marrow was a little doubtful of Rob ert's ability, but he said that he would give Robert a commission on all the customers he could get. So Robert started out and made a thorough can vass of the neighborhood and he soon found nearly 30 families that agreed to take Mr. O'Marrow's goods if they were delivered promptly. So Robert srot up every morning at five o'clock and, mounted on his wheel, lie woum take a big basket of bread and buns and deliver them to his customers. Ihe basket was firmly fastened to the han dle-bars of the machine. He was so prompt and pleasant that his custom ers increased to 50 and then he could not carry all of the bread in a basket. So he bought a little iron wagon and fitted a large basket inside of it. This he tied behind his wheel. Almost any morning, if you get up early enough, you may see him spinning along the streets of Hyde Park with the bread wagon rattling along behind him. In this way Robert, although he is only 13 vears old, has worked up a good busi ness. He is making money and Mr. O'Marrow never would think of part ing with his services. Chicago Record.

Arranged to Provide Plenty of Sun shine for the Inalde. It is a noticeable fact thai disease of 11 kinds, and cholera in particular, Is most prevalent where the greatest num ber of hogs are kept. The massing of those animals together and crowding therewith socarbonaceousafood as corn is an invitation to disease to come and reap a rich harvest; and unless timely preparations are taken to thwart it, it is a harvest which is very liable to be gathered, and that successfully, too. This is especially true where the pig gery and its surround'ngs have become unsanitary. Id such a case disease germs multiply fast, for disease loves dark and dampness, which soon tend to enfeeble the strongest and healthiest hog and pave the way to the most dire results. Now, as sunlight is one of the best germicides known, this, together with MODEL PIGQERT. dry quarters, is absolutely necessary to the continued health of any hog. in deed, all animals should have the sun shine to bask in. and most emphatically does this hold true as regards young anil ..'s. Accordingly, when it conies to The housing of the hogs for winter it is imperative that the piggery be so arranged as to provide the 'requisite amount of sunshine inside. When building a large piggery, however, the problem is how to get the sun's rays to the north side of the building. It is simple enough to get the sunlight to stream in at the south side, but al though it reaches the floor near the south side, it will hot reach far back What then. Is to be done? Why. use a little beadwork and build in accordance with the following designs, the first of which is the perspective view, louwill thus have the north side of the piggery made as warm and sunny, and often far more so, than the south side. For, to obtain the desired resu.:, the house should extend east and west, no matter what its size Is, which should depend upon the magnitude of the herd that it is to accommodate, and nothing else. I r a. 3- INTERIOR ARRANGEMENT. It will be observed that the "peak" of the roof is south of the center of the building, both sides of the roof being of the same pitch. This causes the roof of the north side to run higher than that of the south side in the place where the roofs meet, and so enables one to put in glass below the one roof and above the other, through which the sun will stream to the north side of the bouse and, killing disease germs by the mil lion, tone up the system of the pigs and shotes and so make them thrifty and healthful, like those In the south part of the building. Where the door opens, an alley should run through the center of the building, as shown in the second plan. Ibus con structed, the central window is just over the south side of the alley, in con sequence of which the sun will shine over the alley and into the pens north of It. the opponlre pens being lighted sufficiently by the south window. From the alley between the feed troughs, doors, each two feet wide, should open from the pens Into the alley. These have been omitted by our engraver. Gates working with a lever should also be suspended above the troughs, to shut the hogs away while putting in the feed. , E. E, E, are the pens for the pigs, with. a trough (A) In each. B is a bin for dry feed, in the middle of the alley, with a slop barrel (not lettered) on each side. I) D are doors opening from either end of the alley. If all these details are looked to and the location of the piggery is high and dry, the pens being made reasonably varvn, so that close huddling of the wine Is not necessary in order for them io be comfortable, albeit there is good ventilation, one will find such a building of great, value, not only as a -winter house, but also as a place in which to raise early pigs in spring. Such are some of the benefits, indl rectly speaking, that are to be derived from the sun, the actinic rays of which are one of nature s most powerful mas to good health. In what way. do yon ask? - Why. simply for the reason that they kill disease germs, promote circu lation and digestion and. best, of all have a buoyant effect upon the' spirits of both man and beast. We can there fore do nothing better when construct' ing n habitable building of any kind than to arrange it so that there can enter an abundance of sunlight. This Is applicable to dwelling-houses, as well as to form buddings. Frederick O. Sib ley, In N; Y. Tribune.

The Monitor, a newspaper published at Meaford, Ont, Canada, first discovered this ease two yearsago, and published it at length, which now seems, owing to the cure of it, to be a miracle. The facta were so remarkable that many people doubted the truth of them. They said: It is too remarkable;. it cannot possibly be true; the paper is mistaken, and the man, although . he may minx nimseu :ured, will soon relapse into his former con dition," etc., etc. The accuracy of its report called in question the Monitor deter mined to find out definitely whether the facts were as stated and whether the man would really stay cured. They accordingly kept a close watch on the case for two years liter the first article appeared, and have just low published another article about it in which the original reports are completely verified, the cure is permanent, and they publish a fac simile of the check given by the Canadian Mutual Life Association for 1,650.00 amount of total disability claim paid by them to Mr. Petch. The first account stated that the patient (see address below) had been a paralytic for five years, and there was such a total lack of feeling in his limbs and body that a pin run full length could not be felt; that he could not walk or help himself at all; for two years he was not dressed; furthermore, that lie was bloated, was for that reason almost pnrecognizable and could not get his clothes on.
