Dan Rice in His "Memoirs" Tells In
side Mysteries of Show Life.
Any bookseller will tell you that
the constant quest of his customers
1s for "a book which will make me
laugh." The bookman is compelled
to reply that the race of American
humorists has run out and comic lit
erature is scarcer than funny plays.
A wide sale Is therefore predicted for
the "Memoirs of Dan Rice," the
Clown of Our Daddies, written by
Marla Ward Brown, a book guar
anteed to make you roar with laugh
ter. The author presents to the pub
lic a volume of the great Jester'B
most pungent jokes, comio harangues,
caustic hits upon men and manners,
lectures, anecdotes, skotches of ad
venture, original 6ongs and poetical
efTusions; wise and witty, serious,
satirical, and sentimental sayings of
the sawdust arena of other days.
These "Memoirs" also contain a series
of adventures and Incidents alternat
ing from grave to gay; descriptive
scenes and thrilling events: the rec
ord of half a century of a remarkable
life, in the course of which the sub
ject was brought into contact with
most of the national celebrities of the
day. The book abounds in anecdotes,
humorous and otherwise; and It af
fords a clearer view of the Inside
mysteries of show life than any ac
count heretofore published. Old Dan
Rice, as the proprietor of the famous
"One Horse Show," was more of a
national character than Artemus
Ward, and this volume contains the
humor which made the nation laugh
even while the great Civil War raged

beautifully illustrated, will be sent

Sepgars of Bombay.
The nuisance caused by begcars in
Bombay has assumed unbearable pro
portions. The orientals practice char
ity as a religious obligation and re
lieve poverty where they find it. Re
citals from Kebit and Marabai never
fail to touch the innermost chords
of the natives with their innate rev
erence for spiritualism, and the fakir
backs up bis appeal for alms with
profuse quotations from the pcets.
Then there are lay beggars and re

hereditary profession. Last and not
least are the unfortunato sufferers
whorn the loss of limbs cr eyes or

and drives thorn to beggary as the
last resource. These latter have a
genuine 'claim on our charity, but as
there are so few asylums in India
for the halt, the maim and the bl'ml
the streets and byways of towns are
flooded with beggars, pitiful types of
mitering humanity.—Rash Gaftar.
Canadian Asbestos Industry.
During thirty years of asbestos pro
duction Canada which leads the world
in the output of this mineral, has
produced $20,000,000 worth, stated
Geologist J. A. Dresser in an address
before the Canadian (Mining Institute
at Windsor on March 5. In 1878 tho
output was fifty tons, while in 1908 :t.
was 65j534 tons,
507. The product has 'been hitherto
manufactured in the United States
and Eurofie, but large works fer the
making of »asbestos articles are being
installed In Canada.

The Right Foundation of Health.
Proper food is the foundation of
health. People can eat improper
food for a time until there is a sud
den collapse of the digestive organs,
then all kinds of trouble follows.
The proper way out ofHhe difficul
ty is to shift to the pure, scientific
food. Grape-Nuts, for it rebuilds
from the foundation up. A New
Hampshire woman says:
''Last summer I wa3 suddenly tak
en with indigestion and severe stom
ach trouble and could not eat food
without N great pain, my'stomach was
so sore I could hardly move about.
This kept up until I was 30 miserable
life was not worth living.
"Then a friend finally, after much
argument, induced me to quit my
former diet and try Grape-Nuts.
"Although I had but little faith I
commenced to use it, and great was
my surprise to find that I could eat it
without the usual pain and distress
in my stomach.
"So I kept on using Grape-Nuts,
and soon a market improvement was
shown, for my stomach was perform
ing Its regular work in a normal
- way withoqt pain or distress.
"Very soon the yellow coating dis
appeared from my tongue, the dull,
heavy feeling in my head disappear
ed and my mind felt light and clear;
the languid, tired feeling left, and
altogether I felt as if I had been
rebuilt. Strength and weight came
back rapidly, and I went back to
my work with renewed ambition.
"To-day I am a new woman in
mind as well as body, and I owe It
all to this natural food, "Grape

Pure and Fresh Water.
Be careful to have their water sup
ply pure' and fresh. Keeping the
chicks on a plank floor for a few
weeks after hatching is another good
precaution. If this is not practicable,
at least keep them off of damp or
grape-worm infested soil.—Farmiehs'

Mash For Geese.
In making a mash food for the
young geese, take ground oats and
it through a sieve so as to re
much of the chaff as possi
ble. Mix this with equal parts of
bran and corn meal, and moisten it
with scalded milk; mix into a dry
mash and feed ✓ this to your young
goslings. Never feed young grow
ing geese whole earn or whole grain
of any kind if you wish to grow them
most profitably. Always feed them
ground meals, mixed either with
scanding milk or water.—Farmers'

Poultry Profits.
The cost of food required to pro
duce a pound of beef, pork or chick
en does not differ greatly, although
chicken sells for twelve or twenty
cents a pound by the carcas, while
other meats sell at from four to eight
cents. This difference is further in
creased on the farm from the fact
that poultry picks up a good deal of
material that would otherwise go to
waste, as well as numerous insects
that should be destroyed so that much
of their food should not really be fig
ured as expense at all.
But there is a greater risk of loss
In raising chickens and the cost of
labor per pound of finished product is
more than with sheep or hogs. Then
you must credit eggs produced, which
complicates the problem until you get
a headache. The net returns, accord
ing to capital invested and cost of
maintainance, however, leaves
greater profit from poultry than any
other farm livestock. If a farmer
would keep close account of the in
come from his poultry, including the
amount of eggs and butter consumed
at home, he would be surprised at the
Artistic Farfn Homes.
One good, comfortable farm home
ip the neighborhood is sure to lead to
others. The example is a good one.
The improvement of the farm home
cannot help but have a good effect
upon a neighborhood. We believe it
is a stimulus to emulation on the
part of the neighbors, so that they
will vie with each other in the beau
tifying of their home. Friendly riv
alry of this kind gives a rural district
a desirable reputation. Why not you,
dear reader, commence this work of
making your home beautiful, laying it
out more artistically, planting it
tastefully, and . it will surprise you
how many imitators you will have.
We all try to be as good as our neigh
bors, and generally some one has to
be the starter. Why should not you
be the leader in this work of beauti
fying homes on the farm?
It costs very little to lay out a lawn,
plant trees and shrubs and have a
few flowers and climbing vines by the
house, and the effect is very pleasing.
The enjoyment we get as we go along
Is worth more than the money we
make. A pleasant setting for a farm
house adds more comfort and solid
enjoyment than the same amount ol
money laid out in handsome furniture
or a stylish rig to drive.—Epitomist.
Pekin Ducks.
As I am a great lover of the Impe
rial duck with its beautiful snow-like
feathers, black eyes, and orange col
ored bill, I will give a few words in
their favor. I would not think of liv
ing on a farm without a few of them
at least.
First I believe In having pure bred
stock, I prefer the young duck and
the older drake, as the young ducks
begin laying earlier in February and
produce a greater number of eggs.
One year we had ten that averaged
twenty eggs in September, after a
heavy laying term in the spring. By
securing them in a pen at night, for
a few times, they will learn to go
there alone, and since they lay about
daybreak you are sure of the eggs.
I use twelve eggs for a setting and
often have a 100 percent hatch, and
there Is no prettier sight in the poul
try business to me than a nice gang
of Pekin ducklings.
They" should be fed four times a
day, say at six, ten, two and six
o'clock, their feed consisting of brau
and meal, about equal parts, with a
email amount of some good poultry
food occasionally. Above all things
-they must have sand mixed with their
food, to aid in digestion; say about
a handful to the quart of food>
Some finely cut grass, lettuce or on
ion tops, mixed with the feed is a
splendid addition.
When quite young they should not
be allowed too much water, unless it
can be so* arranged as not to admit
their bodies, since they are weak, if
they get entirely immersed, but af
ter they begin to feather they should
be allowed enough water to bathe in.

We live within a stone's throw of
a nice stream, but since naughty tur
tles abound our ducks are not al
lowed the run of the creek, except
those we intend to keep far breeders,
which when about full feathered are
then let go to the creek, as it makes
them stronger and helps to develop
muscle. There Is money in raising
ducks, but they must be put on the
market early. Two years ago we
marketed over 200; the first 15 we
put on the market in June; they were
between nine and ten weeks old and
averaged three and three-fourths
pounds at 15 cents. The next 25
weighed 99 pounds at 12 1-2 oeuts.
By the time aur next were ready the
market was a little off, so our profits
were not so much. They are a bet

Smut in Seed Wheat.
The following from a bulletin of the
Michigan Experiment Station may be
timely where farmers find smut in
their seed wheat. It says:
"Clean off a space ten feet square
or larger on the barn floor, sweeping
it thoroughly to remove all spores of
smut. Mix the contents of a pound
bottle of formalin with water, in the
proportion of one pound of formalin to
50 gallons of water, which is enough
lor 35 bushels of wheat. Do not mix
the formalin and water until ready
to use them. Thoroughly wet the
floor with the solution; then spread
on a layer of seed wheat, which has
been previously well cleaned In a
fanning mill. With a sprinkling pot
go over the layer of wheat wetting
It thoroughly, shoveling and sprink
ling until every kernal Is wet on all
sides. Add more wheat and sprinkle
as before. The weat may lay in a
pile for a day, but no longer, for fear
of spoiling. Put the wheat into clean
bags that have been treated with for
malin, and be careful not to stir up
the dirt on the barn floor while the
wheat is exposed. For drilling the
wheat may be dried on canvass In
the sun, but it should be sowed
promptly after being dried."
Formalin can be had at most drug
stores, but if not the station say:
"If formalin is not available, cor
rosive sublimate may be used, using
one pound to 50 gallons of water.
Great care should be taken to pre
vent live stock having access to the
solution or to the .wheat, as the drug
is a deadly poison, and do not allow
the mixture to come in contact witt
any metal."
Farm Notes.
Breeding for size is assisted by
good, senible feeding more than most
farmer realize.
There are times when we would
like to give up the struggle and let
the weeds have full swing.
For plant lice on cucumber and
melon vines nc thing is better than to

bacco stems. It is both fertilizer and
Every breeder of poultry who has
not already got pure-bred stock should
make a start in the right direction
within the next month by buying eggs
for hatching.
Hens turn their eggs twice every
day. This is where many incubator
people make a mistake. Incubator
eggs should be handled just like the
hen would handle them.
Cows will live out In the fields
both night and day, but a good stable
with a liberal feed in the manger
every cold night and every stormy
day will be appreciated.
If you are working for eggs be care
ful to select the most vigorous birds
for winter layers. Market all the
rest as broilers. Weaklings are no
account as egg producers.
We can not say too much in favor
of the standard brands of prepared
chick feed. They save time, make
stronger chicks, and in every way are
more satisfactory than home-prepared
foods. Above all, they are certain in
results. ^
As a theory, clean cultivation is
right, but in practice, we cannot al
ways put the theory in force. Condi
tions are often against us. The best
we can do is to force the work ahead
as much as possible, and thus be, to
some extent, independent of the

especially those living near large cit

that dairy rows are not intended to

enough milk from a good dairy cow
so that the value of the carcass is

"You see, as I tell my son, Wil

is to say the something that we are

What I hope is that William will
