r^.lnrei^'B Making Light of Trouble By Beatrice Fairfax "Build for yourself a strongbox. Fashion each part with care; ]When it's as strong as your heart can make it. Put all your troubles there: Hide in it all thought of your failures And each bitter cup that you quaff; Lock all your heartaches within it— Then sit on the lid and laugh." It never yet did people any good to talk about their troubles. But how many people do you know who fail to get a morbid sort of delight out of living their troubles over and over again? It seems to me that it is rather an ignoble thing to want to bother other people with your sorrows. It ought to belittle you in your own eyes to find yourself forever weakly sharing with others your most secret sorrows. To be dignified at ali, sorrow ought to be sacred, and the minute you can talk about It, it becomes rather a petty thing, such as well may be despised by large-souled folk. Care and worry are weeds that ought to be uprooted fr»m the gar den of your soul and not watered by the salt of tears and constant atten tion. If you have a sorrow in your life, and focus your attention on it, it grows as your sense of proportion shrinks. If that sorrow were hidden away from sight and ignored, it would actually wither in the uncongenial dark of forgotten things and come at last to be only the weak little ghost of the great live pain It once was. Laughing at trouble Isn't as hard as it sounds: nor are the people who suggest it utterly hard-hearted and unsympathetic. It is just a philo sophic and utilitarian principle sug gested by wise folk who know that a tooth always aches most when you have nothing better to do than to think about it. If you can resolutely fashion for yourself -a large chest of forgetful- Pleasure and Profit You can have both by keep ing poultry. But pleasure in poultry keeping depends largely upon the profits. To make money with poultry, you must know hoixi to care for them.

Earn $1 an Hour Keeping Chickens Many men and women who have applied the methods given in the I. C. S. Course in Poultry Farming are making their spare time pay them a dollar an hour. They keep their tables supplied with eggs and meat and have a surplus to sell at high prices. ** By applying the methods I learned from the I. C. S. Coarse in Poultry Farming, I made $165.21 profit from 90 hens in the last six months and increased my flock by 100 pullets and IS cockerels," writes J. B. Myers, Muskogee, Okla. "My profits last year, before I began studying poultry farming, were only $28.59." "After failing with poultry four times I enrolled in the /. C. S. Poultry Farming Course, started again, and am making $24.00 | a month from 100 common hens. The Course is worth ten times what 1 paid for it," says E, J, Henntssy, Hecla, Pa.

What possible good did it ever do anybody to sit and remember how painful the convalescence from some serious illness was? In fact, when did it ever fall to retard convalescence for the patient to recall and recount all the painful horrows of his nick ness? Life is very frequently a con valescence from painful operation or serious illness and getting well Is closely related to ceasing to be sick. Forgetting the unpleasant symptoms and concentrating on possibilities of Joy has a lot to do with recovery. And why any one under the sun should wilfully and wantonly retard the period when he can go out into the sunshine of life and be happy is al most more than any sane person can comprehend. The Method To forget, first of all make up your mind to forget. Then look :.-our trouble square in the face and aay to it, "You aren't so very bad after all! Anyway, you are over and done with. And you're certainly not im portant enough to remember." After that has been said a few times, you will believe yourself and the unwanted and neglected memory of what was once so painful will slink away into oblivion. * When you have smiled a few times at the good things of life and beck oned to them in friendly fashion, you will actually be able to laugh hon estly and simply—not at what hurt you once, but with a full faith in the fact that it can hurt you no longer. Where Did the Panama Canal Employes Go? Disposing of the men 'who built the Panama Canal has been one of the most difficult problems confronting the canal zone government ever since the completion of the great waterway. The task has been almost finished, for although there are still several thou sand laborers on the Isthmus who not be needed for the actual oper ation of the canal, there are tasks for them to work upon. The most important of these is, of course, that of fighting the slides, which requires a large force working in three shifts. Then there are the great dry docks, which have just been completed,and employment for?. num ber of men was created by the last fire in Colon, which swept away many blocks of rickety wooden shacks. These are now being rapidly replaced by fire-proof concrete structures, and the laborers engaged upon this Job are living in government army tents the while. Interesting light upon the nationali ties of the men who built the canal is afforded by the lists of those that have been sent back to their homes since the bulk of the construction work was completed. There were 6,77 3 of these in all, of which 4,908 were West In dians. most men from the Barbados and Jamaica; 1,222 were Americans, and 643 Europeans, mostly Spaniards. Thus the claim of the West Indian that he -is " the man that dug the canal," Is strongly supported. ~H© is still very much in evidence on the Isthmus, too, and he has a well earned reputation for loyalty and adaptability. His sense of humor has also gained him a reputation. Some of the letters written by West Indian laborers to Col. Goethals have been published, and widely read for their unconscious humor and native elo quence. On the whole, the canal has been as good for the West Indian as has the West Indian for the canal. The high wages paid on the Isthmus have en abled him to return to his native island and become a veritable Nabob. If you would like to know all the facts about the building and operation of the great Isthmian waterw|ay, as well as the story in detail of the work ing side of the entire federal govern ment, you should read the two great patriotic books, "The Panama Canal" and "The American Government," both by Frederic J. Haskin. Read the offer of the Telegraph to its readers in the coupon printed elsewhere in to day's issue.

HXRRISBURG TELEGRAPH A SMART SUIT WITH MILITARYSUGGESTION The Pattern for thi* Design Be sides Allowing for All Seams, Gives the True Basting Line and shows Diagrams for Cutting and Making. Bach Piece of the Pattern Also U Utttradi for Identification. By MAY MANTON , 87 8 7 (With Basting Line and Added , Seam Allowance) Boy's Suit, Bto 12 years. The pattern for this design, besides allowing for all seams, gives the true basting line and shows diagrams for cutting and for making. Boys will be delighted with this suit, for it hints strongly of the soldier, yet it is not aggressively military, and is one of the very new ones with the flaring coat portion and with a yoke. If the six pockets seem too many, those on the belt or those on the upper part of the coat or both may be omitted. The trousers of the knickerbocker sort, fin ished with hems and elastic. The suit is one of the newest and smartest of the season and at the same time, it is simple and one can be made at home without difficulties. In the picture the material is Navy blue serge, out all the material that are available for boys' suits are ap propriate, and this year a great deal of cheviot and of frieze will be worn. The pattern allows all the seams and at the same time, gives the true basting line, so that it is the easiest thing in the world to cut out the material and to baste and sew accurately. The fact that the coat is made in sections, so to speak, makes it an easy one to handle and an easy one to manage. The belt conceals the seam joining body and skirt portions. For the 10 year size will be needed 314 yds. of material 36 in. wide, 3 yds. 44, yds- 54- The pattern No. 8787 is cut in sizes from 8 to 12 years. It will be mailed to any address by the Fashion Department of this paper, on receipt of ten cents. News Items of Interest in Central Pennsylvania Special to The Telegraph .Marietta.

Odd but handsome is the coloration of this variety of general purpose fowl, originated in England in 1897 and named in honor of Queen Vic toria s jubilee. The ground or body color is reddish huff, each feather ending in a black bar tipped with a large white spangle. In the males some of the sickles are solid black, some solid red, some solid white, and often a single sickle or flight feather may contain all three colors. When full grown the males weigh 8 H to 10 pounds, the females 7 to 8 pounds. They are full breasted and plump from broiler size to maturity, so that they may be killed and dressed profitably at any age. The hens are Success in Exhibitions De pends Largely Upon the Conditioning of Birds; Extra Care Well Worth While Directions Given For Wash ing the Fowls and For Training Them to Present a Good Appearance B,v Michael K. Boyer Poultry Editor of the Farm Journal COPYRIGHT, 1915. Tliis Is the time to begin preparing fowls for exhibit.ons at the winter shows. Only by competing with other fanciers can the amateur gauge the worth of his stock: and when he does «-ompete he cannot take too much pains with tiie conditioning of the birds. In this article Mr. Boycr tells how to give the fowls the extra care that often will enable him to secure the prize which otherwise would not have been won. EXHIBIT at the Winter shows, if i you feel that your fowls are of | high quality. Do not be afraid of defeat; it is only by exhibiting your birds in competition with those of < other fanciers that you will be able to , learn definitely where they are weak i and study how to improve them. Fre quently amateurs who have never ex hibited before carry away high honors in some of the largest exhibitions, but generally it is a good rule for the novice to exhibit first at the smaller winter shows. Then when he has had experience in exhibiting, lias learned to know his breed thoroughly, he will be safe in sending his choicest specimens to the larger shows. The successful exhibitor does not j wait until the time of the show be fore he selects his birds. From chick- I hood up he is constantly watching | them. They are properly sheltered : and cared for, and no labor Is saved | that will give thetp good, healthy de velopment. The growth is steady. There must be vigor and stamina to grow healthy stock. As the birds grow, culling must be done repeatedly. Take out of the flock chicks that have crooked spine, crooked breast bone, missing rump, wry tail, crossed beak, defective feath ering or any other disqualification. Keep only the best—those that give promise of making a good showing under the standard rules. This will give room for the selected ones, and there will be no danger of overcrowd ing. Conditioning Is Most Important The main thing in showing Is to have the fowls in the proper condi tion when in the showroom. They must be made as gentle as possible so that they may be handled properly and not be frightened while In the cages. Many a good bird has lost a prize for no other reason than that it as wild and excitable in the cage, and would not pose or stand. For two weeks before the exhibi tion the birds should be placed in a cage so that they may learn to be quiet and not startled when any one approaches them. The value of this fact is illusirated by Judge J. H. Drev enstedt, in the book "Poultry Secrets." Mr. Drevenstedt says a prominent ex hibitor at the New York show had Imported a tine Black Red Game cockerel from England, took It from the steamer direct, and placed it in a cage: another exhibitor had a bird of the same variety in a cage close by. When the judge poked his stick into the cage where the English bird was, the latter would try to "fly the coop." In other words, it would not pose nor stand while being examined. The American-bred bird, when touched by the judging stick, knew its husiness and showed its training by posing nicely, and won the prize. Yet the foreign cockerel was Intrin sically by far the better bird; it sim ply was not in proper condition to show its superior points when the Judge came around. Therefore it will be seen that it is | time well spent to tame and train the birds. ! Have the Birds (lean When Shown White birds, it is held, are the hard est classes to judge or exhibit, so con ditioning is a very Important factor. If the poultryman keeps his premises clean and the floors of the houses well covered with clean straw, there will be little if afiy necessity for wash ing the fowls before they are placed on exhibition. A thorough rubbing of the feathers with a soft cloth to remove any duet that may be on them; good layers of large, tinted eggs, and will become broody, sit and hatch and rear the chicks. The chicks are hardy and make rapid, vigorous growth. The fowls do well in confinement and make an ideal backyard flock —both good looking and profitable. In many sections of America Or pingtons are as popular as American breeds, such as Plymouth Rocks or Rhode Island Reds. They are shown in large numbers at the leading win ter shows, and competition in them is so keen that American fanciers have sent, thousands of dollars to Eng land to import fine specimens. The Diamond Jubilee Orpingtons are not as popular as other varieties of the same breed. the legs carefully oiled and rubbed with sweet' oil; and a little vaseline rubbed on the comb and wattles, will be about all that will be necessary. Birds reserved for exhibition should now be placed In different quarters, and the sexes separated to avoid breaking of feathers. Any broken or off-colored feathers can be and if done at once the possibility Is that they will grow out properly In time for the show. False or off-col ored feathers are not necessarily a sign of Impurity. In many cases they are caused by a bruise or injury to the featner when growing. Another important matter to at tend to it to examine the bird care fully to ascertain if there is any ver min present. A thorough dusting with a reliable insect powder (such as a coal tar product) is a good precaution, even if no vermin are seen. Lice are sly and often hard to detect, so that the dusting will be advisable. I do not think that it is just the right thing to wash birds. If every exhibitor would exercise great care to keep his fowls clean, and then en ter them in their natural condition, it would give better satisfaction all around. If I were a poultry judge and found two birds equal in quality, the one naturally white and the other washed, 1 should surely give the award to the former. How to Wash the Fowls But where good birds show dirt on their plumage, washing is the only al ternative. For this purpose castile or other white soap and warm water are used. The work must be done In a warm room, ho the bird may not catch cold, and after it is through with the operation the fowl should be placed in a roomy coop near a good fire, in a temperature of about 80 or 90 degrees. In a few hours the bird will start to plume itself and be per fectly dry. In washing the fowl, two tubs are filled half full with water just hot enough for the hand to feel comfort able in it. Make lather and with a sponge rub the feathers thoroughly, rubbing with and not against the feathers. Every part must receive attention, care being taken to remove every particle of dirt. I The bird is then placed in the sec ond tub, and the plumage is rinsed with a sponge saturated with water, jto remove the suds. Too great care cannot be taken in this particular, as soap allowed to remain on the plum age will make the lather blotchy, and the feathers will not take the. blueing water evenly. A final rinsing is then given in a tub of clean, cold water, to which a little liquid blueing has been added. Too much blueing must not be used, as it will show next to the quills in the web of the feathers, and the judge is apt to give the award to a more careful exhibitor. After rinsing the bird thoroughly in this blueing water, squeeze the water out of the plumage, and dry the feathers with towels. Then place the bird in a coop, which should* have j the top and sizes covered with muslin, the front slatted, and the floor littered | with straw. This washing process is followed by attention to the ccwnb, I wattles and legs. The Standard of Perfection must be used as the guide in the selection of ' exhibition fowls, and special note must . be made of the disqualifying clauses. [ Much discouragement has been evinced through carelessness on the part of the exhibitor. It requires grit and pluck to be a successful exhibitor. The man who cannot stand up in the face of defeat Is not. a good sport. —————^ Poultry Mash— Wet or Dry? Professional poultry raisers dis agree as to how poultry mash should be fed. Next week Dr. T.
