'Tis now that lovely Mary Ann Will take some eggs out where old Fan la pulling hay from the long rack. Where alts that spunky hen so black. And when her nose comes Into view That hen will make a how-d'-do. She'll catch poor Mary by the snout And try to scratch her blue eyes out. She'll fly on fop of Mary's head And scratch her like a garden bed. Poor Mary will get a black eye. And her false curls away will Ily. And Mary will fall off the rack And all those pretty white eggs crack Upon her head, run in her ear. And Mary will be all one smear. Then she will cry her eyes most out When she sees her poor scratched up snout. She'll whack that old hen In the neck For making her sweet face a wreck. But, say. when Mary marries Bill And he just crosses lier sweet will Or says she can't have a new hat Should she henpeck poor Bill for that? Now, If twas wrong when that old cluck From Mary's snout a big piece took. And If 'twas right when Mary, mad. Treated that old black hen so bad. Wouldn't It be wrong for Mary Ann To rave and henpeck her old man? Wouldn't It be right if poor Bill should Just turn and lick the sassbox good? C. M. BARNITZ. A DUCK'S LAYING AND HATCH ING HABITS. Uncle Pete says, "Keep a duck for luck." There's this true, sure—If you don't want eggs laid on the hen installment plan, keep Pekin. Itunner or Orpington quacks, for when they start to lay In March or February 100 eggs straight ahead is no unusual record. They naturally lay at night, and if on the pond you may duck for eggs next morning, a New York farmer who drained his pond to catch eels finding 500 duck eggs in the bottom. When incubated nearly all hatched, as duck eggs are very fertile. If you wish a duck to sit soon, don't remove eggs from nest unless too many accumulate. She builds her nest gradually by adding sticks, straws and m A LAYINU PEKIN. leaves, and when it is lined all round with her down and feathers her lay is about over and hatching begins. To protect her eggs from chill and varmints she covers them when otï and on return from a swim sprinkles them with her wet feathers to assist Incubation. FEATHERS AND EGGSHELLS. That wild ducks are not scarce is shown by the slaughter of 12 . 1)00 hy gunners in three days on the Susque hanna fiats, Maryland. Other quacks and quackery are also on the Increase. All this talk about balanced rations by certain feed companies is quite amusing. The cheap grain, grit and dirt some sell will knock a hen otï her balance and at the same time give the company a cash balance on the right side of tlu; ledger. Don't be caught with chair. During the big Alaskan exposition thousands visited the ostrich ranches of California, and American plumes got a big ad. If Germany makes her ranch near Hamburg a success the big bird may he raised most anywhere in tilt' Union. Ilarry Nichols of Chestertown, Md., has purchased seven alligators to guard his poultry at night. When a thief is caught the county will save expenses ot trial, inquest and under taker Dur poultry editors who are slinging Ink at the boys who fake at shows should quit selling hooks that teach faking in till its branches. To fake or not to fake is the ques tion that confronts the fancier when he knows that the other fellows all do it and he'll get licked if he doesn't. Now. w hich is worse—to be licked or to fake, to fake or to knock? When a hen uses her shoulders to blow her nose the daubed feathers are a sign for you to separate her from the rest for catarrh or roup treatment. In these corn feeding days the hogs often have a fat hen for dinner. The shelled corn is a big temptation to the fowl and the fowl to the hog. Poultry wire is cheaper than chicken and tur key dinners for bogs. Tlu* wagon shed is a poor roosting place for the farm flock. John Bug house's hens always roost In his new top buggy. If your feed room opens Into the •chicken quarters your birds will al ways be trying to sneak Into the pan try If the Jam yon hooked from moth er's shelf didn't give you the jimjnms a jammed crop will often relieve the Jam In a crowded coop. I I ! ■Y V Points For Mothers Mothers, don't neglect your health and personal appearance If you want to keep your husbands' admiration and the pride and devotion of your children, even though your daily rou tine must be broken into occasionally, and surely these things are more es sential to your happiness than the knowledge that the parlor has been carefully dusted each day or that every cloth and towel has been as smoothly ironed as your best shirt waist. For the Baby. A Utile empire frock for the baby is one of the season's new wrinkles. It has the tiniest, shortest yoke, cut square and outlined with a band of beading run with blue ribbon. The full little skirt Is gathered to the yoke and finished with a deep hem. featherstitched. Above the hem is a band of Valenciennes Insertion with three tiny tucks above and below The sleeves are merely little puffs gathered into heading run with ribbon tied in a rakish how and finished with a lace frill. Tiny pearl buttons fasten the frock at the back. Another equally attractive little frock is cut with a front and back panel and sleeves In one piece. The panels run from the neck to the hem of (lie frock and are outlined with fine featherstitching and have scatter ed tiny blossoms and French knots worked In white mercerized embroid ery thread over the entire surface. The neck and sleeves are finished with lace insertion and frills of edg ing, and the skirt is gathered at the sides. Teach Little Folks to Love Nature. A child's interest should be awak ened in love for nature, for animals and birds. If he is taught that the humblest living creature should have his protection and affection lie will never be thoughtless or cruel in his treatment of them. A child may be told of God's love in the wonderful gifts of the things of the earth, the flowers and fruits for beauty and use. Wonder may he awakened in his mind in the Immensity of the universe, the glory of the sun. the beauty and mystery of the stars, the expanse of sky and sea. The religious spirit should be fos tered in childhood. Unless tills Is done It will not have strong growth. The personality of the mother has much to do in originating in the child the earliest ideas of God and immor tality. The sincerity of her faith, her reverence for all sacred and holy things—these are almost unconsciously observed by a child and form an im pression never to be forgotten. A Comfort Loving Mother. The mother who desires comfort does not spend her time telling her children what not to do. She pro vides them with things they w ill want to do. She frowns on candies, sodas and ice creams between meals, except as a special treat. She does not believe in fine feathers making fine birdllngs. She knows that the prinked out child, being thor oughly uncomfortable, soon has its mother in like state. Nor does she think It conducive to her own or her child's comfort to keep it up to all hours. The early to bed rule is worked for the peace of the household. She is not Inordinately ambitious. Prodigies are flattering to maternal vanity, but the nnpushed boy or girl Is more comfortable to live with. She does not think indulgence makes for content. The mother who is most thoroughly uncomfortable in her children is the one who has never trained them to obey. Cleaning Shoes. Mothers often hesitate to put their small children kilo dainty white and light colored shoes because of the problem of keeping these shoes «-lean. Soft white shoes, if not too badly soiled, may be <-leaned nieely with al most any white powder. If they are very dirty they may be cleaned with gasoline. The regular whit«* shoe polish is made with whiling and powder. mixe«l medium thick and applied with a cloth. This may he used ou white canvas and white and colored buckskin shoes. Hub the shoes free from dry powder after they have dried. "Booties" made of chamois may be washed In ammonia water. Wash them in a suds with ammonia in it, rinse in more ammonia and wipe them dry with a towel or cloth. Do not dry near artificial heat. Suffrage For Infants. The suffragettes have evidently made up their minds that if they can't vote during this generation their «laughters shall during the next. Each of the 2,000 dolls given by Mrs. O. IT. I', lielmont to poor chil dren of New York on Christmas wore a yellow "votes for women" wish. There seems to be some hope for the cause if the coming generation Is to be brought np with suffrage thrust at it from infancy. Saving Work.
