A farmer not lone since referred to

The metaphor was apt. As the dulry

Barred Rock the best dual purpose

Origin of Breed.
The Barred Plymouth Rock breed
nrnhabl.v originated in Massachusetts
ibout the middle of the lust century,
it Is said to linve sprung from the
cross of a Dominique cock with a
Black Cochin hen. The Barred Rocks
combine Ihc qualities of both of these
ireeds. They more nearly nppronch !
Ihe Cochin In size hut in other rc-1
qiects closely resemlile the Dominique.'
Since then, other strains hnve been
added. II. B. May of Nntlck, Mass.,
iound tlie stock to lack stamina. He
:rlod n light Bralimn cross on It with
unsatisfactory results. Then he
chanced on n cock which he described
is n grade game and which promised
o give the desired result. The cross
iroved satisfactory. In three years
ill undesirable fentures lmd been bred

HARDY CONSTITUTION.
brood is bluish-gray barred evenly nil
over?both sexes of the same shade
and murking. It was found impossible
to produce this with regularity by mating
males and females of the desired
shade. Consequently the double mating
system was introduced.
These are really two sultvnrietles
of the exhibition Barred Plymouth
Itock. These are usually described as
the male line and the female line. The
exhibition innle la produced by ranting
exhibition males to females of tlio
same line of breeding, these being
much dnrker and less distinctly barred
than the males. The exhibition female
Is produced by mating exhibition
femnles to males of the same line of
breeding, these being much lighter In
shade and usually less distinctly
barred.
The color of the Barred Bock la
difficult to describe. It varies In varying
lights and the effect depends much
alao on the width and regularity of
the bars. An now described In the
American Standard the ground la
grayish-white, the dark bars just stopping
short of positive black.
Resemblance to Dorking.
It Is maintained by many breeders
that the quality of the flesh of the
Plymouth Rock approaches to that of
the Dorking. The flesh Is certainly of
good texture and flavor. Considering
their size they mature early. They
are also hardy both as little chicks
and as mature birds.
Their laying capacity Is much above
the average of fowls. Authentic records
are reported of more than two
hundred and thirty eggs per year from
a single hen. They are good winter
layers but for best production they
should not be kept longer than two
years.

New British Premier Has
Accomplished Big Things
5n Hie rorpor
ill AAIO V/ Ui VV1
LONDON, Dec. 7. ? David Lloyd
George, who was born January 17,
1SG3, is an idol of British democracy.
His extreme radicalism has made htm
at times "one of the most hated men
in England," particularly among the
aristocracy, but on numerous occa-1
sions hp loomed up as "the man of the
hour." He is prominently tho British]
government's man of "push and go," |
energetic, determined and fearless.'
Though a little man, almost frail in j
physique, he is such a powerful fight- ]
er that he scarcely knows the meaning ;
of the word defeat.
As Chancellor of the Exchequer,
he was the author of budget reform j
which opened a new era in the fiscal;
history of the United Kingdom, and
which, by putting uew levies of taxation
on the propertied classes, led to
the great constitutional conflict between
the Commons and the Lords and
tlie curbing of the legislative veto j
power of the peers. Tills political revolution,
aud othor great causes in
which he figured as the popular leader,
notably his successful fight for the
insurance act for protecting the work'"<

111 ? VlUOOUiJ Ugutiiiib ?"U UHVUJ ployiucnt,
and his old age pension
scheme, made him a dominant figure
in the Liberal government.
When, with the sudden outbreak of
the European war In 1914, internal politics
were eclipsed by England's entrance
into the war, Chancellor Lloyn
George was shouldered with the chief
responsibility of financing tue Empire's
part in the great conflict. Though
lie had been one of the chief obstructionists
to great military expenditures
on the part of Great Britain in peace
times, face to face with the war he
tackled the problem of raising money
! with his whole strongth, and set in
motion the first of the great loans
which were floated to meet Britain's
| war cost?estimated at $10,UUU,UUO,uou
a year.
In the midst of these financial problems,
Lloyd George was called to assume
a new role, as Minister of Munitions,
when In May, 1915, a Coalition
Cabinet was formed, and when it was
charged that Lord Kitchener, ilie Secretary
of State for War, had failed to
i supply Hie army with sufficient guns
: and ammunition. It was agreed that
! lie occasion called for one of the
i strongest men in England to awaken
: the country to the paramount neccsi
sity of providing war materials on a
j huge scale. ' The battle of Neuvo
Chapelie," as Lloyd George said, "had
consumed more ammunition than was
used in the whole Boer War."
Safe Bet.
A woman in I'ollsville, Pa., laughed
herself to death, but we are willing
to wager that It wasn't over one of
her husband's jokes.?Detroit Times.

Mother! Your child isn't naturally

When listless, pale, feverish, full of
I cold, breath bad, throat sore, doesn't

Nothing equals "California Syrup of

spoonful, and in a few hours all the
) foul waste, sour bile and fermenting
j food which is clogged in the bowels
| passes out of the system, and you
have a well and playful child again.
All children love thlB harmless, dellclous

fails to effect a good "inside" cleansing.
Directions for babies, children

How to Be Rid of
Disgusting Dandruff
The only way to be permanently
rid of disgusting, untidy dandruff is
to correct its oause. Shampooing
merely cleanses the scalp for a few
days, then the scales form again as
thick as ever.
To destroy the dandruff germ and
get rid of dandruff to rgood, part the
i hair and apply a little of the genuine ]
Parisian Stige directly to the bare
scalp and rub it in with the finger
tips for a few minutes until absorbed
| by the scalp. You will surely be
j amazed at the result of even one api
plication, for your hair and scalp will
look and feel 100 per cent bettor.
Only a few days' massage with Parisian
Sage are needed to destroy the
germs that cause the dandruff to form
The scalp becomes healthy, tlio hair
will grow better and show more life
and vitality and you need never be
troubled by dandruff again. Faded,
dull or lifeless hair is quickly restored
to beauty by this simple proressi
which is absolutely harmless,
and will not stain the hair or make it
greasy.
! Parisian Sago nan bo obtained from
druggists everywhere. It is not expensive.
