of the word date* bacji'to the days
when spinning was'not done by ma

every girl learned to spin. as a mat
ter of courae, the an we an she now
learna to spell. She was obliged to
spin a couple of houra'etftry day. and
what she produced belonged to her.
Thus, every girl, by the time'she came
to get married, owned a great quantity
of linen of her own make that she
brought aa a kind of dower to her
husband. Every glrl'a leisure, up al
most to her wedding day, was devoted
to the spinning of linen for nse In the
household of her spouse. Therefore,
every unmarried girl was called a spin

Killing Peach Tret Borer*.
Mf experience with coal Ur to pro,
tent the injurious work af the peach
tree borer extends over a period of 11
years. 1 was first Induced to trr this
remedy by a friend, formerly engaged
In the nursery business, in whom I
had the utmost confidence. Yet 1 was
somewhat skeptical when he assured
me so positively that coal tar would
prevent the ravages of the borer and
would not injure the tree in the least.
1 tried the tar on about 200 trees In
a block of 1000, and found that bis
statement was absolutely correct. For
the last eight years 1 have set peach
trees every year and I never fall to
make a thorough application of the
tar. With an old paint brush 1 put it
upon the trunk of the trees before set
ting. spreading the tar from the roots
up the trunk from Bto 12 Inches. lam
careful to remove any borers that may
be in .the trees as they come from the
nursery. I keep In mind this fact that
the coal tar will not kill the borer
desply burled under the bark, but will
pr-svent uie moth from depositing its
eggs at the base of the tree. The ap
plication of tho tar must be made an
nually thereafter, being sure to flniah

The wisest time to market poultry

If the weather i* bad keep the hen

To follow gcod methods la one of the
requisites to good success. The off

to fail.
Whitewash the ineide of the hen

on the floor. Rub off the perches with
coal oil.
Scrub poultry is as unprofitable as

Some hens are such good layers that

only 27 graves were discovered, al
though this number represented the

In the graves, which were probably
net earlier than the 17th century,

wretchedness at their situation Is uii
to be but rarely fully appreciated.
The wage conditions existing In the
toy industry can be readily observe;
from the following ggures prepared
by the commission referred to. Tit
most remunerative branch of the unit
affords a press income of from 24 U
46 marks (IS 71 to 19.51) per west
one-half of which may be considered
as profit. In other branches the is
Income la as low aa C to S msrb
(11.42 to 12.14) per week. It must lit
remembered lhat these incomes in
not the earnings of a single permit,
but represent the labor of entire fa*
illea.
How Inconceivably small the price
paid fer certain kinds of toys is can tie
seen in the ease of pencil boxes of the
cheapest quality, for which tbe mate
gets from 41 to SS cents per gross, or
about 1 1-2 cents a dozen.
The dally meals of these people are
report e. by the commission to be cos
fined largely to potatoes, linseed oD,
bread and coffee, and, at times, meal
on Sundays.
With the price of wood rising, toj
factories increasing in numbers is

price of toy* falling, it seem* that tbe
people of Erzgebirge must In their
increasing wretchedness find seme
other means of sustenance. Export
