There Is living in Cottage Place, a suburb of the oily, a lady who Is fond of i hlckens. Several weeks ago she set two bens, and in due course of lime both liens came off with their broods. One of them, however, was unfortunate ? nough to lose all of her biddies but one, and the lady thought that she could put that one with the brood ot the other hen without that other hen I knowing anything about it. But in this 'she was mistaken, for C.ie lone little blddle fared ha lly, as the forced step* mother let it know In a way most for. clblo that she did not care to take upon herself th? responsibility of rais? ing some other hen's "chick." The lady persisted in trying to make the hen adopt the little chicken, but the hen was obdurate and positively re? fused to do any such thing. S... for a time, the lady was non? plussed, but a happy thought at last struck her, and she proceeded to put the idea Into ex< cutlon. She procured some egg-dye as near the color of sev. oral of the other chickens as possible, and with this changed the color of that badly treated and orphaned "chick." Then she used shoe polish to color the back of tho blddle. This done she put ib.- chicken under the hen at night and was up bright and early the next morn? ing, which was Friday, to see the re? sult of her scheme. The hen came but, looking sideways at her brood; sin walked a little ways and called all ot her chicks about her. apparently look* ; ing over the number very carefully. 1 she finally concluded that everything j-WUS all ri:;hl an I went to . . r.ii. hing. hu; now and then she would stop and look at the little chit kens as if she kn.-w something was wrong. Yester? day she seemed content, ami the little ? hlcken has a good stepmother, and tiie lady is happy. A SLOOP ROBBED.
