Grand Isle Man Opernte n Motor Ilont the Snmc Wny. An application for a pilot's license, which is reposing In the office of the steamhoat inspectors. Is something of n novelty because It was made out by Clarence A. I.utz of Grand Isle, who has no arms. He seeks to obtain license which will enable him to oper- ato a motor boat and take out parties for short cruises. Lutz made out his own papers and did the writing with his foot. Tho writing Is not only legible but is piece of work far better than tho average. He Is left footed and has the toe of his stocking cut off so that he has only to kick off his shoe In order to get to work, Mr. Lutz seems to bo able to do nlmost anything with his feet and has taken to pieces tho motors In different boats and uses wrench with dexterity. A few years ago Lutz made a 1,000 mile trip by motor boat and ho mis this as an argument In favor of his obtaining a license. He Is also a good swimmer and seems In every way qual Hied for the llcenso and It will prob nbly bo granted him, although It re mains for tho officials in Washington to say. Mr. Lutz lost his arms when a sthall boy but learned to use his feet as a substitute with such skill that he ap peared for several years on the vaude ville stage. Ho Is a native of Roches tor, N. Y hut camo to Vermont re cently and Is engaged In tho business of chicken raising on Grand Islo at the present time.

In the Poultry Department of Farm and Fireside a contributor writes: "Twenty-seven years ago there lived right near me n man who worked In the Iron-mills of Pottstown, Pennsyl vania. This man kept twelve Plymouth Rocks In the back lot of a country tenant-house. The lot wns altogether ahout forty yards square. They were a very good show grade, In shape, color of feather nnd size. They were of fe male-color line, with a few darker fe males In the pen. He raised a few each season and exhibited some nt shows neny by. This was back In 1S'4. Men of towns from ten to twenty miles away would come and tnke away birds nt from two to five dollars each. There was almost no extra expense after the first start, which was the eggs. The win nings at the Fhows would nlmost pay for the showing expenses. "After a few years he quit the Iron-mill and bought a fnrm of thirty-six acres. Hero the Rocks were Increased to fifty- flvo kept In one flock. Sales of eggs nnd stock greatly Increased. The birds were taken to ftom threo to five near-by shows, and they won many of the firsts. About four hundred were raised each sensun, nnd tho Burplus hens and pullets all pold to men who saw his stock at the fairs. About 1893 tho flock was divided hy building two houses In tho npple-orchard, nnd the wholo orchard mado Into two largo yards. One of theso was now mated for darker or cockerel lino and tho two others mated for light or standard femalo line. The strain wns kept up to the very best practical lines. They always laid the year nround. I ennot give figures In detail, but the prices of cockerels wore from tl.EO to $3.00, nnd a fow at $20.00; the cull pullets often brought $1.00 ench, In the fall, at which time nil tho rulls were sold. The good breeders brought from $2.f up to $10.00. You will readily ec that tho poultry paid n very ntut sum, "This man raised live children. One of the sons took the farm a few years ago, and the father has taken a house near by. He helps run the small placo and tho chickens, nnd keeps one mating at his home. They run llvo matlngs now.

H had very llttlo schooling, but PRESIDENT CHAMBERS Rrnnil Trunk' Heart The "Bethel liny" Who Is Helping to Nheil Lus ter on Vermont Fnlr 'nme. (From the Saturdny Ewnlng Post.) I Any railroad president will tell you he i has the hardest Job In the world tell you tearfully and with an amplitude of detail that resembles a cost-per-ton-per- i mile slvt on a shipment of prunes from I. os Gates to Pattngumpus and most of them have. A railroad president Is for- 1 ever scared two ways; he Is seared of the men who work for him nnd lie Is scared of the men for whom he works. Ills Job Is to get dividends for stock-hold- ers nnd his dividend-getters are the men , who operate his road. Fnless the dividend-getters help him get dividends ho gets where the society queen wears thn Imitation-pearl dog-collar. Tin lot of the railroad president Is not a hnppy one. Should you, by any chance, attend n meeting of these distinguished gentlemen you will find them holding a grand lodge of sorrow always. No rail road president ever Is cheerful. Always, no matter what his showing in the finan cial reports, he wnlN because some other road took Fomo freight nwny from him: nnd always he finds In whatever admin istration Is In power a direct assault on vested rights, which usually resolves It self Into a bitter complaint that a statu or a Government body has refused to let him hike his rates a few points above what the traffic .vill benr. "Why," he sobs, "cannot the Government let the poor, struggling railroads alone?" And the inquiry Is generally Incited by a re cent experience before his board of di rectors, who have inquired, In a some what Insistent and penetrating manner, how it is his receipts have fallen ofC while his expenses havo increased and does he think they put their money Into his stocks for the fun of putting It In? It If were not for the men who work for him nnd the men for whom ho works the railroad president would have a heap of fun traveling round In a luxurious pri vate car and making speeches beforo boards of trade and commercial con gresses. As It Is, It Is positively pathetic to hear a r.iiltf.nd president plead that his stockholders should be allowed to make seven per cent, on a capitaliza tion of a few hundred millions moro than the properly Is worth. Still, one must not blame the railroad president, be cause behind him Is that fearful board of director thnt bunch of fearful ogres, to be exact yelling for dividends. He has a perfect right to be scared. However, few of them voluntarily resign. THE BRIGHT BOY OF BETHEL. Having thus set forth some of the pleasures of the life of a railroad presi dent who operates a road in this coun try, and some of tho difficulties nnd hard ships, let me direct your attention for a moment to n railroad president who may bo said io have all I'nlted States rail road presidents looking like Idle sons of the very rich when It comes to difficul ties. 1 refer to the president of the Grand Trunk railroads all of them; all of the trunks and the satchels nnd the suitcases embraced In that system which has sev eral divisional names, Including that of the Grand Trunk Paclllc, He has a three-cornered Job nnd ench corner Is shnrper than the others. First off, the Grand Trunk Is Cnnadn'H very own. Also, it Is owned in England. Fur thermore, it serves six of theso United States nnd Is seeking nn entrance to Bos ton. As Oy Wnrmnn says. It embraces tho experience of being "damned Cana dian" In New England and a "damned Yankee" in Car.adn. Canada Isn't very keen on tho extension of her railroad systems Into this country; nevertheless nearly one-third of the mil eage of the Canadian Pacific Is In the United States; and the Grand Trunk oper ates five thousand miles In this country, while the Canadian Northern has a lino to Duluth. They used to say of C, M. Hays, tho president of the Grand Trunk, who went down on tho Titanic, that he wns tha one inllro.nl man on tho continent! who could choose his Job; nnd the task of selecting his successor hud nbout as ninny difficulties ns the successor will have. So, when they camo to pick tho man to 1111 Hays' chair, the men who hail the choice considered the list of "thoso mentioned," which included cmln ent American niuimKers, iilstingui'ncil Canadians n various extinguished statesmen, and grabbed the ono man who didn't want It. That man was ICdson J. Clumiberlln, of tho Grand Trunk Pacific, who had hcndquaricrs nt Winnipeg, Clumborlln was born In tho United fjl'atcs, as was Hays.

Cli.imbe.rlln's first railroad work was with the Central Vermont road, where Mr Hen also served his apprenticeship: ho had various positions and showed much aptitude. Then .1. It. Booth, tho big lum berman, took note of him. Booth owned a wilderness in Canada, and wanted to make It less wild by cutting the timber from It. He hired Chamberlln to build a lumber line from Lako Champlaln to Parry Sound on Georgian Bay. Chamber lln took the Job. He went to the front and stayed there, sparing neither himself nor his men. He lived In that wilderness, out In the open, driving that road through until he completed the task. Then Booth named his road the Canada Atlantic and Chamberlln became the gen eral manager. Tho Canada Atlantic runs through Ottawa, and seven years ago the Grand Trunk took it over. Chnmbirlln resigned und went down to Mexico. His experienco in building that lumber road hud given him a taste for the work. One day he was talking with Frank W. Morse, then of tho Grand Trunk Pacific, and Morse askeil him what he had In mind. KNIGHTHOOD STII.I, IN FI.OWKB. "Nothing much." Chamberlln replied; but what I'd like to do would be to mild a transcontinental railroad." Morse remembeied that, and when Morse left the Grand Trunk Pacific to go to the Chicago A- Alton he told Presi dent Hnys he knew of a man who could push the Grnnd Trunk Paclllc through. "What's his name?" asked Hays. "I'M Chamberlln." Hays was familiar with Chamberlln's record, and ho wired to Mexico and ask ed Chamberlln to come up and seo him. Chamberlln enmo up, telling the folks In Mexico he would be back In two weeks. Two months later he appeared in Mexico in n Grand Trunk private car, gathered in his family, stowed away his pointer pups and left to take charge of the Grand Trunk Pacific. Before Cham berlln look hold, the headquarters of the Grnnd Trunk Pacific had been In Mon treal. Chamberlln moved them to Winni peg, and he continued to live In Winni peg, until ho was called to Montreal to succeed Hays. Chnmberlin Is a big, burly man, who Is popular with railroad officials, but who has had his. differences with the railroad unions, lie is an outdoor chap and a crack wing shot. He specializes In pointer logs, has a number of flno ones, nnd is hnpplest when he Is out In Saskatchewan with dog and gun. where the chickens aro plentiful and the shooting Is good. Ho began to save his money early and Is rich. The death of Charles M. Hays nnd the promotion of K, II. Kltzhtigh to the presi dency of tho Central Vermont road, wtilcn Is the name of the Gland Trunk's New England system, practically eliminated tho Wabash crowd from the Grnnd Trunk In Canadn tho Wabash crowd that took hold of he Grand Trunk when It wan a singlc-trnck, third-rate, moribund nffnlr, and expanded it, built It up nnd made It n big dnublctrack system. They want ed to knight Hays, but ho refused, Hays remained a citizen of the United States until Ills death. I.lkely ns not, ono of these days King George will signify his willingness to tap 15. J. Chamberlln on a broad shoulder with a sword and ex tend a cordial Invitation to him to JUse, Sir Knight! Canadian railroad presidents usually havo a chanco to become knights.

The modern woman of middle ace does not deem It necessary to dress monoto nously In black. She wears soft shade? of lavender, purple or pi ira color, with whlto frocks In summer, nnd if she finds it becoming sometimes even pnle blue. If she likes them she lias navy blue tailor suits, but when she chooses a very handsome frock of broadcloth or velvet she usually selects black, as it Is more elegant In these materials. She seldom wears brown ns It is apt to be unbecoming to an elderly woman unless slio has a youthful pink color in her cheeks. There is nothing that makes so great a difference in an elderly woman's ap pearance as the arrangement of the hair. No possible frame for the face could add greater dignity to the countenance or do moro to soften the lines of ago than white hailr or even Iron-gray hair. Now be causo a woman Is old Is no reason why she should twist her hair in a hard knot on the back of her head or brush it .straight back unbecomingly from her face. She can adopt any modish coiffure, always provided that It is not extreme In style or In any way grotesque or bizarre. She can wear her pair jrarted, or. If It is more becoming, In a sot' prompadour. As a general rule the pompadous Is well suited to all elderly women, for this use ful word covers qulto a variety of hair dressing. Fortunately there nre several kinds of pompadour, though none of them are woin very high at present, A soft, loose -arrangement of the hair fittingly frames the face of tho thin, slen der woman, while a little moro severe ar rangement of the hair adds dignity to the countenance too plump for symmetry. In fact, often a pompadour will actually re deem a fnco from coarseness if only the right lines nre chosen In Its arrangement. Many ladles with white hair have great dliliculty in keeping it In a snowy condi tion. It should he shampooed at least onco a montn witn wnue ca.'tue su'ip, shaved and dissolved In warm water. When the hair Is really whlto and not irony-gniy it Is a good plan to rlnso It after each shampoo with Indigo water to give It n shining silvery tint. This chemical should always be purchased at a drug store and enough put Intu the water to make It light blue. Care should be taken not to get too much iih It will give the gnlr n distinct blue tinge If It Ik care lessly used. Indigo acts on the hair In the same manner ns It doe3 on white clothes. When whlto hair is dry and brittle lt.s condition can be improved by rubbing a very llttlo white vaseline carefully Into the scalp. To npply it the hair should be parted nt close intervals and the grease thoroughly rubbed Into the scalp with tho finger tips. If this Is done properly tho scalp Is nourished without tho hair showing tho slightest trace of greaslness. livery other nlsht Is often enough for this treatment. remedied by constant and carefully di rected treatment. Massage, the greatest factor In the entire beauty equation, Is, of course, tho best and safest remedy. First apply a good cleansing cream over the entire elbow nnd well along the arm. Wipe this away with a soft cloth In ord r to remove the outer coat of grime that It tpny not be forced Into the skin. Next spread a thick layer of masaga cream over tho elbow, bending the arm gently to allow It to fill all wrinkles and fissures. Begin the treatment w.th a n llJ rotary movement administered with tic tips of the fingers. Start from the very point of your elbow, gradually widening the circle until tho entire bu k r.f t if elbow Is covered. Itepent thN mivcmfnt six time. Increasing the depth of t'i massage as you progress. After a deep massage take the fat pa'rri of the hand and Iron out the wrinkles. Kneading has made the muscle- and tis sues of the elbow pliable, so that a firm stroke across these fissures Ins the effect of nn Iron on a wrinkled piece of cloth When the elbows glow with wtrnvh saturate u sponge with a good astringent such ns will remove any remaining cream without destroying its softening Influence. Follow the astringent with a gentlo strok ing, using a soft cloth for this purpo.-e. Do not powder the massaged parts, as thl9 will clog tlio pores and prevent them from breathing properly. The magic of such treatment will soon demonstrate itself in those beautifully rounded elbows formerly believed to be prerogatives of youth, alone moro than npaylng the beauty seeker for energy expended In restoring their contour.

A calloused elbow Is not a thing of beau ty, and the woman who hopes to revel in "elbow" sleeves this summer had better go to work on this much nbused portion of her anatomy. Unfortunately, elbows rocelvo the brunt of contact for the entlro arm. After a tlmo usage develops a kind of an outer protection, a thick, horny lay er of skin without the sensltlvo nnd Im pressionable qualities of tho normal cuti cle.

During tho short hour's run from Kur dnh Rond to th-? sea, every window was crowded with heads, for the passengers are watching eagerly for tho first glimpse of the lofty temple of the god, whenj they confidently expect relief from the thousands of maladies to which they ara heir, and complete absolution and sura transmigration Into the form of tha sacred cow, the loftiest pinnacle to which the Hindu religion aspires. As we near the sea we pass through n beautiful trop. leal country, where graceful, swaying pnlms meet over shady bayous covered with magnificent whlto lilies and other varieties of tropical water plants, whosij blossoms perfume the clear, warm morn ing air.
