A successful raiser of poultry writes
as follows In raising poultry or
slock of any kind it should be the aim
of ever one to keep It healthy and im
prove it You can do it very easily by
adopting some systematic rule These
may besuutned up iu brief as follow
1 Construct your house good and
warm so as avoid damp floors and af
ford a flood of sunlight- Sunlight is
belter than medicine
2 Provide a dusting and scratching
place where you can bury wheat and
corn and thus induce the fowls lo
take the needful exercise
3 Provide yourself with some good
healthy chickens none lo be over one
to two years old giving one cock to
every twelve heua in the Asiatics and
tine to every thirty or forty of Hie
smaller kinds
4 Give plenty of fresh air at nil
times especially iu summer
5 Give plenty of fresh water daily
and never allow the fowls to go thirsty
6 Feed them sympathetically tvo
or three times a day scatter the food
so that they dont cut too fast or with
out proper exercise Do not feed them
more than they will eat up clean or
they will get tired of that kind of
food
7 Give them a variety of both dry
ami cooked feed a mixture of cooked
vegetables is an excellent thing for
their morning meal
S Give soft food In the morning and
the whole grulu at night except a
little wheat or cracked corn placed iu
the scratching places to ge them
exercise during the day
9 Above all things keep the hen
house clean and well ventilated
10 Do not crowd too matiy iu one

13 Let the old aud young have as
large a range as possible the larger the
belter
14 Dont breed too many kinds of
fouls at the same time unless you are
going into busiuess Three or four
will give you your hands full
15 Introduce new blood into your
stock every year or so bv either buying
a cockerel or setting of eggs from some
reliable breeder
16 In buying birds or eggs go to
some reliable breeder who has his rep
tut ion at stake You may have to pay
a little more for birds but you cant

William IL is in his thirtieth year
having been born January 27 1859 In
roply to a messago of congratulation
from the Landtag hi3 father the Em
peror Frederick newly dead wroto
If God preserves tho lifo of my son it
will bo my dearest task to educate him
In tho feelings nnd principles which
Bind me to tho fathorlnnd This un
dertaking was faithfully adhered to by
tho late Emperor and by -the Empress
Both his father and mother devoted
much of their timo to the education of
Princo William Tho Empress Vic
toria in thaNu scry became a favorite
subject for qictorial art and many
anecdotes rclanjr to the period of his
childhood are preserved From 1866
tho instruction of tho young Prince was
Intrusted to Dr Hinzpeter who was
chosen for this important task on ac
count of his great knowledge- nnd tact
and at thd sumo time as being a man
of high personal character and princi
ples Dr Hinzpeter took care not to
hegltict tho development of his charges
bodily as well as mental powers and
gave a prominent place to gymnastic
oxercisos in the daily arrangemente
Ho also with tho cordial approval of
tho lato Emperor and of tho Empress
Victoria selected companions for tho
childhood of tho Princo who did not
exclusively belong to tho circles of the
Court and tho aristocracy Among
thoso were tho family of tho then
Scotch Presbyterian minister at Pots
dam the Kev Mr Carlyle ono of
whoso sons Mr A J Carlyle a com
panlon of the childhood of the Em
peror was presidcut of tho Oxford
Union last Lent term From 1874 to
1877 tho young Princo was sent to the
gymnasium of Cassol a much home
lier if not less admirable educational
institution than thoso of Berlin or Pots
dam Hore ho submitted to the ordinary
discipline of German school life and
met with a different class of school
companions from those whom he would
have found at tho more exclusive and
aristocratic schools of tlio metropolis
and tho royal residence town
th October1 1877 Prince William
entered tho University of Bodhpaud
tho present writer then a student at
tho university well remembers the ar
rival of the Crown Princess and her
son There was no ceremony All
felt tho intention was that tho Prince
himself should foel that he entered tho
university as on ordinary student and
was expocted to conform to its regula
tions like tho rest Whilo in Bonn he
lived in a modost dwelling in tho
Coblcnzer strassc and used to bo scon
going to and from lectures wearing tho
white cap of tho Corps Borussia the
corps which corresponds to the Oxford
Bulllngdon Club It is said however
that nt Bonn Prince William first formed
the predilections for tho lifo of tho
army which have since marked his
career Ho was much in the company
of the numerous officers of the crack
regiments then quartered in the uni
versity town and on high authority it
is said that he was there taught to re
gain his grandfather and Moltkoas the
heroes whom it ought to bo his first
aim to emulate
In 1880 his marriago with tho Prin
cess Augusta Victoria of
ltd to the first
opportunity he had of declaring his
mind with regard to public affuirs In
the course of his roply to an address
from tho towns of Prussia ho said that
the example of his beloved grand
parents and parents would be the
guiding star of tho lives of himself
and his bride and he concluded by
asking tho deputation to assure the
whole fatherland that our wholo life
shall be devoted to the fulfillment oi
our duties Pall Mall Gazelle

In lingerie nothing is better style

It is said that Worth never takes in
to account such trifles as comfort or
convenience in the costumes he creates
and the fact that ho has lately sent out
a gown with threo waistcoats to bo

Paris takes kindly to tho revival of
alpaca especially in tho bright sil

for dust and traveling cloaks and
warm weather walking suits which
are made up with plain skirts- tucked
around the bottom over which another
skirt with hem stitehes up on the
Tight side is slightly looped at ono
side the waist is at back a jockey
basque at front a cutaway over a
waistcoat of white plquo or jean and
as the gray stuff sheds dust as a ducks
Wing does water the outfit is simply
invaluable for traveling or business
The new bouillionno skirt so much a
favorite for all thin stuffs is made by
cutting the breadths some Inches
longer than tha foundation skirt
which must bo bordered with a five
inch ruffle abovo which tho skirt is
sewed then drawn to tho top and the
extra length puffed out around the
hips and at the back by a stitch here
and there while the front drops in
long graceful festoons caught at the
side with bows of ribbon or a soft
sash To match there should be a
round bodice three quarters high tied
upon the shoulders with ribbons
matching the skirt under which must
be worn a high plaited chomisetto of
eilk or muslin and the sleeves must bo
full reach a little below the elbjw
and be tied in with ribbon just above

FOND OF HIPPOPOTAMUS
Congo Natives Fighting Over a
Hirer
Horse KUled br White Ken
Lieutenant von Francois describes a
half savage half comic occurrence on
the Upper Congo awhile ago that
illustrates the remarkable fondness of
tho natives of that region for animal
food While he was steaming up tho
river ono day Mr Grenfell and he shot
a hippopotamus and tho crow drew
the huge animal on shore to cut
It up Thoy had not been engaged in
this work more than five minutes be
fore they were surrounded by a great
crowd of natives who watched tho
operation with the keenest interest
Tho tongue and the best parts ot tho
flesh were reserved for the steamboat
hands who then left the animal and
gave tho natives a chance
With uplifted knives the crowd
rushed upon the remains and began
to slash away on all sides Scores of
tho natives could not get near tho
body and they began to push and
pull their more fortunate com
rades with frantic eagerness
Those whose knives were within reach
of the coveted flesh knew a good thing
when thoy had it and they did not pro
pose to yield an inch ot ground They
would slash away for a minute then
step to fight the rear guard off and
then renew tho cuttlng up process
Tho pushing struggling howling mob
made an exalting scene Then tho un
fortunates in the rear unablo by dint of
muscle to gain access to tho creature
gathered handfuls of sand which they
showered over the hippopotamus
butchers endeavoring to blind them
So tho battle went on until finally
those who were nearest tho carcass
rolled it over and over Into the water
until it was entirely submerged From
this vantage ground they continued
tho work of cutting up the animal un
til every scrap that was edible was
secured This moans that there was
very littlo left but the skeleton for tho
average Congo native Is not at all par
ticular He even cuts up the thick
hide of the river horso into small bits
and after boiling it a long timo man
ages to swallow It with great apparent
delight N Y Sun
