Rules for Their Supervision in Colon ial Times. From th% Youth’s Companion. Along with other enlightenments of the age the genus boy seems now to be bet ter understood and appreciated than in the days of the colonies. The worthy ad vocates of the precept that ‘children should be seen and not heard" were apt to forget that if young people were “heard" at proper seasons they were much more apt to be seen" to advan tage when occasion required. The boys of 1700 were no worse than those of to day. What modern lad could sit through a two hours sermon without the aid of much wriggling and squirming and an oc casional kick or two? Mr. W. R. Bliss, in his book on colonial meeting houses, tells how the youthful portion of the congregation was regarded by our very great-grandfathers. Certain laws enacted in Massachusetts at the end of the struggle with King Philip declared that the war was a pun ishment for “the disorder and rudeness of youth in many congregations in time of the worship of God." John Eliot, pas tor at Roxbury, evidently thought this a harsh charge to lay at the boy’s door, for ho expressed his opinion that they had nothing to do with it, and that the war was a judgment on the people for wearing wigs. In 1666 John Dawes of Boston was em powered to take care of all young people “that are disorderly in time of God's Sollem worship" and to correct the un ruly ones with a small wand. In 1723 John Pike was paid £16 for keeping boys In subjection in the time of service, for six months. When hired the second time he doubled the price. On Cape Cod four men were appointed by a town to take acre of the boys on the Lord’s day and to whip them if neces sary. Such offices were termed “inspec tors of youth." In Duxbury, as late ns 1760, a committee was chosen to look after "the wretched boys” on the Sabbath. What did these colonial lads do to re quire such supervision? One almost shrinks from examining into their law lessness; but the records reveal the depths of their iniquity. They did not stand up as their elders FOSTERfcCo No. 9 First National Bank Bldg.

One's imanigation might go on and add the paper balls and nutshells which were probably thrown from the galleries where “the wretched boys” were imprisoned, the shaking of benches, the sly pinches and the similar ebullitions of youthful spirits which went to make up the sum total of colonial wickedness. Breaking an Army Horse. Samuel van L#er, First Lieutenant, Fif teenth United State Cavalry, in Leslie’s Weekly. In breaking the young horse you have a more difficult problem, as he must be handled with extreme care and kindness, and the least departure therefrom may ruin the horse. He should be broken with the snaffle hit, taught gradually, and made much of whenever he is required to do anything new. He is first given the bending lessons, to supple the neck and make him rein-wise, taught to lead and placed upon the longe, a rope or lariat being used for that purpose. He is made to move to the right and left in a circle, to change his gait, thrown and taught to lie down at the signal or word of com mand, to move backward or forward, to passage, turn on the forehand, haunches, etc. In doing this a small switch is used ! in conjunction with the spur and the reins. It is necessary to be very patient land always kind; one must pet him and make much of him whenever he responds I to the aids. He soon learns w'hat is required of him and only a few lessons are necessary. Whenever he has respond ed to the rains they should bo relaxed, and he should be allowed to have his head. To make him carry himself well and give the proper arch to his neck, side reins, fastened to the cinch rings of the saddle, are excellent, and while at first the horse finds them irksome and will fret more or less, If you are kind to him he soon learns to arch his neck to prevent pain from pressure of the bit. Heart of Louis XIV. A somewhat strange story came to light recently through the finding of some documents by a contributor to the Paris Temps, says a writer in Harper's Week ly. The Intermediaire des Chercheurs et Ciirieux had started the question -whether the shrine In the grave church of St. Denis, In which the hearts of several kings of France have found a resting place, contained the heart of Louis XIV. also. There is in this shrine a metal casket In which, according to a very pro lix Inscription, the king's heart is de posited. Rut Abbe Duperron. who open ed the casket, found In it nothing but [ some remains of bony matter. Then some people remembered an old legend telling of an English physician named Bukland who was said to have eaten the. heart. Romantic as this version may seem, it is not true. THe truth seems to he, in brief, that the heart of Louis XTV. was stolen by a painter for the sake of a coloring pigment called "mummy.*’ which originated frotn the aromatic substances of embalmed bodies; and that the heart of the monarch is actually preserved in Droling's painting 1n the Louvre called "Interieur de Cuisine.” Wedding Decorations. From Harper’s Bazar. In all decorating avoid mixing flowers to any great extent. You may like to carry out a color scheme in more than one variety of flower; for instance, you may use pink roses and carnations to gether, or even add a third pink flower. But the tendency Is more and more to keep in the main one thing, which idea is related to the fashion for simplicity. An exception to tills is found in the mixing of flowers which nature herself lias a fancy for mixing, such as the various spring blossoms which may all be found growing together in an old-time garden. An example of this is found In the pres ent popularity of jonquils and daffodils. They harmonize so perfectly in color, form, size and season that they mingle like old friends. The garnishing of the w'edding break fast table is extremely simple, consist ing of a banking of white roses in the centre. Of course you may vary this as your purse or your taste dictates. Daisies, white carnations, white sweet peas are all favorite flowers for the bride's table. Absurdities of Chinese Language. A traveler recently returned from an I extensive tour of China confides to Har per's Weekly some entertaining views up on the language of that country. •it Is absolutely impossible.” he writes, "to conceive of a nation speaking as many* | dialects as you will find in China. A | foreigner’s ability to speak Chinese is a practically worthless acquirement, as | about every twenty-five miles the dialect i changes to such an extent as to be prao i tieally another language, and even if you are speaking the best mandarin—the court language—you are quite apt to be told that your hono^ble foreign language is : not understood. Even the governors of the provinces have to employ Interpreters to communicate with the people they gov ern. “It is » common joke among foreigners in China that the natives always indicate by signs what they intend to converse about before beginning to talk—and this is a joke with quite a grain of truth in i _____ COUNTRY CLUB.

Agricultural Department CONDUCTED BY FU LTON S. WHITE. My last letter closed at Ellsworth. I made a daylight run of over 200 miles through the wheat fields of Kansas. The crop conditions along this line were about like these given ih my last report. How ever. 1 noticed that where wheat was sown in last year’s corn fields, it is very poor. In fact, hardly worth harvesting. A Peculiar People. While traveling in Central-Western Kansas, I came across a colony of Rus sian Mennonites, and l tvm sure that many of ouv readers would enjoy read ing of these peculiar people and of their manner of living, so I will stop writing of crop* long enough to give a brief outline of whdt I saw and learned about this colony. These people are Germans who. for j their religion, were crowded out of Ger many some years ago when they moved and settled in Russia, where they were allowed a broader range of freedom, and where land was more easily obtained. The Russian government, at that time, would lease them land on reasonable terms and allow twenty acres for every man In the family who was 21 or over. Should a father or son die, the lease was reduced, or If a apn became 21 the lease was increased twenty acres more. Soon these people wanted to farm larger bodies of land, and in order to do so had to rent land from the rich nobles. These landlords soon became so exorbitant in their demands that the peo ple could no longer stand the oppression, and came to this country. They are an Industrious, thirfty people, strictly honest, lead a qu^et. unpreten tious life, and care but little for the fashions of the world. This, however, applies to the older people who immi grated here. The younger ones, reared In our country soon become fully Ameri canized. As a rule, the older people do not try to speak the English language, but talk German. They all live In vil lages, but have their farms, some of them, out a3 far as eight and ten miles. Their main crops are mostly small grains, and the harvest season is a Jubi lee with them. They feast while It lasts. They harvest and stack their grain, and break the land for the next crop, then they all go back to the villages where they remain In enjoyment and content ment, having nothing to do but look after church matters, their stock and gardens. They spend much time in reading, smok ing and drinking. When seeding time ar rives they go back to their farms, thrash the grain, sow what they wish and haul the rest either to elevators or to market. After this work is over they retire again to the villages, wheive they spend the win ter. Just before the harvest season, early in June. Is the season when they have their weddings. This Is the most Important event In their lives, and is celebrated by great feasts and much rejoicing among the families and friends of the contract ing parties. The feasts last from two to three days to a week, according to the wealth of the families of both the bride and groom. All strangers who happen to come their way are taken in and in vited to eat. drink and be merry. To show to what extremes they go to on such occasions, I will mention one case which was pointed out to me. A young man who had recently taken a wife, prepared for the occasion by killing a large ox, several shoals and sheep, be sides the poultry. They had twenty kegs of beer, forty gallons of whisky, forty gallons of wine, and boughtand had baked Into bread and cakes 500 pounds of flour, while the bride’s family donated an equal amount. Here was enough for a feast that would last several weeks. many Are wealthy. Many of these people have become very wealthy. The children learn our customs and language rapidly, and soon become good American citizens. Some counties are officered almost entirely by them. Politically, they are mostly democratic, but In the last presidential election they voted for Roosevelt. This came about from rather a strange incident. The presidential train was out west, and was to pass over the Union Pacific east through one of these counties. The train was stopped and Roosevelt made a talk to over a thousand small children, who were ail dressed in white, and who had been under a tutor for several weeks in training to sing “The Star-Spangled Ban ner.” When the train pulled In, these children broke out in one grand chorus | in singing this national anthem. This so pleased the President that he called the father in charge to the platform to | his side, gave him a hearty handshake, made one of his best speeches, in which he complimented the father and the chil dren very highly, and the result was that the whole colony came to the fall elec , tlon and voted for Roosevelt. Perhaps I I have spent enough time now with these people. A little later on, I want to tell our readers of another colony of still stranger people, where It was my lot to spend a day. I traveled over 200 miles in Missouri, stopping to address a farmers’ conven tion on this trip. I found crop conditions about as reported In my last letter, though by this date many sections of Missouri had been visited by fine rains, which were indeed timely. T made a day light trip across the Indian Territory, now a part of Oklahoma, where I found crop conditions not very encouraging, and not really any better than they were in other sections. These farmers were drowned out, and their farms so badly water-soaked that It was Impossible to prepare their lands for seeding. Here in the territory I found one crop more than Is grown in the other sections named, that of cotton. This crop, like all others, is badly spotted, much of it very foul, very small, and with poor stands in many places. Cotton farmers, generally, are over-cropped, and cannot secure help at any price. Largest Airaira harm. I wrote of Colonel R. E. Smith's great alfalfa farm, located near Sherman, Gray, son county. Tex., hut as there cannot be too much said in praise of alfalfa. [ will again call the attention of the reader to what T had the pleasure of seeing on this great farm. When I wrote before, the colonel only had 1200 acres, but since then he has sown 200 acres more, and now has 1400 acres in alfalfa. Now what I shall say of this farm Is not to adver tise Colonel Smith, for he needs no ad vertising. but is given as valuable infor mation for the reader who may never have the pleasure of visiting this farm. However, if one could afford it. it would pay to travel hundreds of miles to see the place, for, as stated before. It Is the largest known alfalfa farm in the world. When 1 reached the farm. I found twelve eight-foot mowing machines busy cutting the crop the second time. These ! mowers are kept busy by relay teams, and the click of the mowers can he heard at a late hour of the night. The old saying: "Make hay while the sun shines," will not always answer, for now hay is sometimes cut while the moon shines. I did not take note of the number of hay rakes in use, but there were eight baling presses at work baling the hay. When the weather will allow the hay is cut when only a small per cent is in bloom. The rakes follow closely after the mow ers. and get the hay In windrows as soon as possible to prevent bleaching and loss j j of leaf. As a lafge percent of the feed ing value Is in the leaves, it is very im portant to employ such methods for cur ing the hay, as will prevent leaf loss, and also preserve the bright green color and sweet odor of the hay. This and last season have been had on the hay crop on account of the excessive rainfall in this section just at a time when good weather was badly needed. The rains have destroyed thousands of dollars wortli of hay on this farm. Only a few days ago a tremendous rain caught $5000 worth of hay on the ground which was rendered worthless and cost $300 to take It off the ground to prevent damage to the grow ing* crop. The crop this year will yield perhaps as much as flvc tons per acre, selling at from J10 to $12 per ton. Besides this a crop of seed worth from fin to $12 per acre may be harvested. Much of this alfalfa Is pastured and here comes In an other source of revenue, but the crop is never pastured when the soli Is wet. When It begins to rain all stock fere taken off the fields and kept oft until the ground Is perfectly dry. This Is another good point to remember. Live Stock on the Farm. Colonel Smith believes that it is good economy to feed a large amount of his crops to live stock on the farm, and so 'has his farm well supplied with hlgh grarle stock. The young man who takes care of the stock oh his farm I found In charge of the following: One hundred horses and mules. 25 milk cows, 500 dry or heef cattle, 5000 hogs and about 50 goats. It Is remarkable how well all stock grow and thrive on alfalfa. Hogs grow and keep fat on the hay, and it Is a strange sight to see alfalfa hay hauled and fed to hogs the same as to other stock. I/pw racks are prepared for feeding ! the hay to hogs so that they may not run J over and waste the hay. All stock seem to relish the wilted hay better than when fed to them green. A horse will run on a green alfalfa pasture all day, yet when brought to the barn will eat a great quantity of the wilted hay. All In all, alfalfa Is a wonderful plant, and the hay crop of the future. Heaving the alfalfa farm, my next stop was at Dallas, where T spent a day wlt'h the National Nurserymen, who were In convention there. After crossing the Red river Into Texas T found crop conditions much better, though far from what iney should be at this season. The corn crop Is very Irregular and not well worked, owing to the excessive rains. Cotton Is also irregular with a poor stand, and is foul In general. M&ny fields not yet chopped over. Wheat and oats were de cidedly better, and thero is a good crop of early potatoes now ready for market, though the acreag^ of this crop is below what it has been for several years in northern Texas. There is an abundant fruit crop In this part of the state. KINDNESS PAYS. W. R. Gilbert, in the Farm and Fire side. Did It ever occur to you that kindness under any circumstances always meets with a response? Among our families, dependents, friends or associates, the generous, kind-hearted man is always the gainer. Nor does the axiom that “kind ness pays" embrace only the human race, hut applies with equal force to the dumb animals In xmr charge. The noble horse willingly responds to the uniform kind ness of his groom or driver better than ' to abusive and harsh usage. The patient cow gives a flowing pall of milk to her gentle milker, and enjoys her clean stall as much as we do a good bed. It Is a Joy to see a well-taken-care-of-cow patiently chewing her cud and responding to the kindness of the good herdsman by her happy demeanor and evident content ment. The sagacious dog will do anything, even to the risking of his life, for his kind master, and. If occasion requires, fero ciously defend him if in danger. Wild animals are trained as much by kindness as by coercion, indeed all nature liberally respond to deeds which savor of kindness. The slovenly farmer or gardener, who neglects his crops, cannot be said to be kind, and has to suffer for his want of attention. If he does not give his plants a good bed to be In, provide them with proper material to nourish them, lets them be robbed or smothered by noxious weeds, chewed by rapacious vermin or destroyed by rust or rot, for the want of taking proper precautions to prevent It, or does not cultivate them so as to give fair play to their respiratory organs, he cannot he said to be treating them kindly: and what is the result? They give him no re sponsive satisfaction and are a shame to him, instead of a pride, as they should be. Resides* the loss financially, he has no pleasure in them, cannot take his neigh bor to see his fine crop of mangels or potatoes, and would much rather keep away from his failure, caused by his own neglect to him if he is not utterly de praved. On the other hand, the careful culti vator who has given due care to his work, meets a pleasing response in his plentiful harvest, and his mind reposes in the thought that he has done his best, and his efforts are amply rewarded by the satisfaction of having done so. BREEDING HOGS. From the Southern Farm Magazine. A southern farmer writes: "How would you feed a lot of pure bred Tam worth pigs intended for breed ing purposes? Skim milk is not available. Would it do to mix oil meal with wheat middlings?" In feeding the brood sow it must he borne In mind that she must not only have sufficient nourishment for her own body, but for t‘he vigorous development of the young in utero. She should not he fed on starchy foods, therefore, ns they are detrimental to the young. There Is little danger of overfeeding, however, if the food Is of the right character. Some of tile more important considerations, therefore, in feeding the sow are to give her a plentiful supply of protein foods and furnish a sufficient amount of ad ditional food to keep the digestive tract In a healthy condition, it is particularly important to feed sows carrying their first litter a protein ration, because th^ir own bodies are still developing. Therefore, if there are any kitchen slops or skim milk available, use them as adjuncts. If they are not available, she can he main tained on some of the following food stuffs with economy and satisfactory re sults. Whatever starchy food she needs can probably be supplied with corn in the cheapest form. If corn is the only con centrate available, it should he mixed with an equal part of middlings and the mixture fed at tlie rate of 2 to 3 per cent of her live weight. One pound of oil meal may he added to seven or eight pounds of this mixture. Of course, an equal amount of barley, oats or bran may he used to re place the middlings if these grains are available or can he purchased f*t a lower cost than the middlings. LATCH KEYERS. Women Cry, While Men Swear, When Locked Out at Night. , From the New York Run. Tiny spurts of light and muffled ex clamations from the darkness of a vesti bule in a side street near Washington square made the policeman smile know ingly as he clicked the gate and went up the steps. ‘‘Please don't arrest me, Mr. Police man,” protested a feminine voice. "Ap pearances may be against me, but I am not a female Raffles. You see, I’ve for gotten my latch key.” Then she began groping wildly about the tessellated floor. "You lookin’ for something?” said tho policeman. "You .see, I forgot mine,” she explained, "and I phoned my room-mate at her of flee to leave hers under the mat when she went in. You see there Isn’t any mat here, so how can I look under it? I’m afraid to wake up the landlady, she s so unpleasant, and besides 1 couldn t wake her anyway. Marge lives three flights up. I tried to throw atones, but it’s too far. Besides, she sleeps like a polar bear.” * The policeman grinned understanding^' and took out a match box. The first light showed him a tiny key in the very middle of the top step. The' girl pounced upon It with a cry of Joy. "Now isn't that just like Marge!” she said. “So careless of her! Why, any one might have found it there.” Tlmn she thank'd the policeman sweet ly and disappeared. "She was a game one,” he said udmir inelv as he joined I he curious roan on the sidewalk. "Most of them women latch keyers cry, and the men swear. "Latch keyers, 1 call 'em, and the com plaint is as common as measles. I get ’em on an average of eight or ten a week. “The men get chesty and try to climb in a window; but a man isn't allowed to climb in even his own window, unless ho knows the cop on his beat. Any man trying to sneak in a window is a second story man to me. until he is proved to bo a lawr abider. "Only last week 1 had a fellow' by the leg in one of the houses in this block. Caught him just as he was getting in. He said he lived there, but it wasn't up to me to admit it. “ Prove it.’ said 1, ‘and come down un til you do.’ "Just then there was a yelping inside and tl\e man swore. A dog had him by the other leg. • ‘He don't know my new trousers, ' said the man. " 'If your pup thinks you don't live here.' says I, ‘it ain't for me to contradict him.' "While he was arguing and cussing, somebody in curl paper knobs open the door and looked at him, stuck in the win dow'. " 'Again, John?' she says, sorrowfully, and I left him explaining. “Then there's the fellow- that comes home from out of towm unexpected, and ain't got no key. Expects to find his wdfc waiting on the doorstep for him at 2 in the morning. I found one the other night throwing stones at the second story window. "He'd have tride climbing, but the win dows w-ore locked, f used the nightstick and banged the be!! until half the neigh borhood w-as awake and advising out of the front windows. Finally a woman came down in one of them Japanese wrappers, you know, and John said: "I’m back.’ "And she said: " ‘Oh, John, how' lovely you’ve came,’ just like he'd walked in soft, instead of being assisted by the police force. Some folks ain't got no sense of the fitness of things. “But women's the wrorst when they come home with their young men," con tinued the policeman disgustedly. "I hauled a fellow down from a wistaria vine not long ago and told him It didn't look good to me. " 7 think it was just sw'eet of him,’ said the girl, and then she cried. "That's the trouble wdth women, they always cry, and then it's up to me to get ’em in or take ’em to a hotel. You see a woman alone can’t get in a hoffel so easy, and it helps ’em out to have me explain, though they don't like mostly, I notice, to travel with a pollceymn." War on Dust. From Harper’s Weekly. For some time past the extensive ex periments have been conducted in Eu rope, and more especially in France, in an endeavor to ascertain the most prac tical and economical method of prevent ing dust -being raised from streets and roadways. Three processes have been given exhaustive trials—oiling, watering with deliquescent salts, and tarring. The most successful of the experiments were those made with coal-tar, the cost of this application, in France, amounting to afrout 2.5 to 3 cents per square yard, but this cost is reduce^ to a much smaller figure when it is considered that the ap plication saves wear upon the roadbed amounting to at least 2 cents per square yard per annum. Chloride of calcium worked fairly well, except for the ophth almic effect upon the eyes of those using the roads. The use of tar or oil upon the roads of the United States, except In a very few localities, would not be possible, most of the highways being soft "dirt’’ roads. To be of any practical benefit the road to which the oil or tar Is applied must be well built, smooth, and hard. A macadam ized road with the tar coating gives ex cellent results.
