Ton can go on a North hill side and dig down [hrough tne snow and leaves and get a mess of lucious, delicious ramrs; you can turn over the ridge to the South hill side, and maybe sit mfcle on a rattler, or get run ovei by a bear, and run up against a sugar camp where sugar and "lasses" grow, and are not made. You can dodge up most any mountain stream and catch a mess of trout good enough for a King's dinner, and maybe get caught in a blizzard before you get home. Last year it snowed up there in June, this year it may snow in July. Surely tills is a good place for the tourist, as thousands go there every season. The famous ipatt suipnur oihiubs is growing in favor and is liecomi lg a resort of national repute, the accommodations there this year are superb, and calculated to please tfe most fastidious, either fo" health or pleasure. Go lip there and take an outing. If you don't feel better, make your will and. get ready to move fo some more congenial clime. IMPORTANT NOTICE. The display of millinery by Miss M. M.

Having seen tbe need of a ??<?]. substantial barn door that oonhl be closed in such a tray as toy prevent animals from passing in or out of the building and at tbe same time admit light and : fresh air. a Kansas Fanner writer dei vised and furnished a sketrh of one | trhicli lie thinks will meet the rerjuire| ments. lie snys: We all know how un-M Bh BAKM BOOR FRAME. satisfactory the hinge door is, always sagging and being torn to pieces. "With the double liinge door, as it is commonly seen, the lower one can bo closed and the upper one left open so as to allow better ventilation and light Where there is a wide door the bingo is impracticable, and then the trade hung door will have to be used. But that, when closed, is entirely closed and admits no light. A window sash might be put In. but that is too easily broken to be practicable. My idea is to make a strong frame, according to the illustration. The sketch shows a door G by 8 feet, framed with *2 by (? inch pine mortised toI gether and braced in the lower portion | with common two by fours. The lowI er part is then boarded up solid, the upper ends of the boards being beveled | and coining to within about two inches of the top of the t center crosspiecc. :! rfnxffr | 1 - VI | || I | I - I [ BARN BOOR COMPLETE. Then boards are cut and fitted in the shape of a door for the upper part. Two 1 by G inch boards will serve for cleats. The corners are then cut so that they will not interfere with the hanger. The door is tlicn placed and hung by two flat hinges, and the upper side is fitted with a spring catch having a small chain attached to unfasten with. It can be readily se^n that this door can be "opened down" while the main part Is closed, preventing any live stock from passing in or out. These plans are. of course, general and can be slightly altered to fit any required size of door. Dairying That Pays. In a series of institutes in the northeastern counties of Pennsylvania I found that farmers are specializing to a much greater extent, in that section than in many other sections of the state, says I-. W. Lighty in National Stockman. Quite a number of dairymen are putting In plants of their own for buttermaking and are devoting all tlieir thought and energies along that line. In a number of instances they sent their sons to the state college to take a short course and are putI ting on the market first class butter. In every instance of this kind I learned tliat the demand was greater than the supply of butter at a very good price. The universal verdict of those men was that, while dairying Is hard and slavish work because of the minute and constant attention that the details of the business require, It pays a handsome profit. Crnpr Achl PonhII>I1 It Increased profits for grape growers are among the fair possibilities. The American Grape Acid association of California offers $25,000 for the best formula, with the right to use it, by which grapes containing over 20 per cent saccharin and valued at ?10 per ton can he turned Into tartaric acid at a price which will permit exportation without loss. Here is a splendid reward for some chemist, who, besides the money compensation, will receive the gratitude of the grape growers of the Pacific coast states. It is also proposed to utilize the acid in the residue from grapes pressed for wine. This *-" ?1 fo,l nlcn mr?lff>? UC1< 1. \kiiBU inui-wij u<... . . tartaric acid and cream of tartar. As there is a great market for tliese products in the United States, the Importance of utilizing grape acid for the purpose Is apparent. ? Orange Judd Farmer.

Senator Hoar's Celebrated Petition to the Massachusetts Legislature. A pamphlet on "Our Native Birds," published at. Harrlshurg by the Pennsylvania department of agriculture, contains Hon. Geo, F. Hoar's famous bird petition, which we take pleasure in reproducing for the benefit of readers of this paper. Mr. Hoar, as everybody knows, is the senior Senator from Massachusetts. The most remarkable legal document on bird protection that the world has ever known is this bird petition. When it was presented in the Massachusetts Legislature the enthusiasm it arouse?! was so great that It. passed through both houses like a whirlwind. It should be read in every school and homo in the country. It will never grow old: To the Great and General Court, of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, We. the Song-Birds of Massachusetts and Their Playfellows, Make This Our Humble Petition: We know more aliout you than you think we do. We know how Rood you are. We have hopped about the roofs and looked in at tlie windows of the houses you have built for poor anil lame and deaf anil blind children. We have built our nests in the trees and sung: many a song: as we Hew about the gardens anil parks you have made so beautiful for your own children, especially your poor children, to play in. Every year we lly a great way over the country, keeping all the time where the sun is blight and warm; and we know that whenever you ilo anything, other people ail over the great land between the seas anil the great lakes find it out, and pretty soon will Ir.v to do the same thing. Wo know; we know. We are Americans just as you are. Some of us. like some of you, came from across the great, sea, but most of the birds like us have lived hero a long while; anil birds like us welcomed your fathers when they came here many years ago. Our fathers anil mothers have always done their best to please your fathers and mothers. Now we have a sad story to .tell you. Thoughtless or had people are trying to destroy us. They kill us harmiHP nnr feathers are beautiful. Even pretty and sweet girls, wlio wo should think would he our best friends, kill our brothers and children so that they may wear their plumage on their hats. Sometimes people kill us from mere wantonness. Cruel boys destroy our nests and steal our eggs and our young ones. People with guns and snares lie ill wait to kill us, as if the place for n bird wore not. in the sky, alive, but in a shop window or under a glass case. If this goes on much longer, all your song birds will be gone. Already, we arc told, in some other countries that used to lie full of birds they are almost gone. Even the nightingales are Ijofng all killed in Italy. Now we humbly pray that you will stop all this, and will save us from this sad fate. You have already made a law that no one shall kill a harmless song bird or destroy our nests or our eggs. Will you please to make another that, no one shall wear our feathers, so that no one will kill us to get them? We want them all ourselves. Your pretty girls are pretty enough without them. We are told that it is as easy for you to do it as for Blackbird to whistle. If you will, we know how to pay you a hundred times over. We will teach your children to keep (hemselves clean and. neat. We will show tiiem how to live together in peace and Jove and to agree as we do in our nests. We will build pretty houses which you will like to see. We will play about your gardens and (lower beds?ourselves like flowers on wings?without any cost to you. We will destroy the wicked insects and worms that spoil your cherries and currants and plums and apples and roses. We will give you our best songs and make the spring more beautiful and the summer sweeter to you. Every June morning when you go out into the field, Oriole and Blackbird and Bobolink will fly after you and make the day more delightful to you; and when you go home tired at sundown, Vesper Sparrow will tell you how grateful we are. When you' sit on your porch after dark, Fife Bird and Mermit Thrush and Wood Thrush will sing to you; and even Whip-poorwill will cheer up a little- We know ..... ?rt-f.-. T?, n Httla wSilf" wiiere w? *vie oaic. in ?, ul^v - all the birds will come to live ill Massachusetts again, and everybody who loves music will like to make a summer homo with you. The Baltimore Fire Still Burning. A few days ago mention was made of the Miller-Clark fire of this city still burning, and the necessity- of the department's having been called out to keep it from getting too much headway. the fire being fanned by the high winds. We learn from a private letter from a gentleman who has been working here for some time at the steel plant, who is visiting his home in Baltimore, that the fire is still burning in that city from the conflagration of months ago-.
