HE DID THE TALKING.
And His Self - Importance Blinded Him to the Possibility of a Mistake. A lively-looking porter stood on the rear platform of a sleeping ear in the Pennsylvania station, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer, when a fussy and choleric old man clambered up the steps. He stopped at the door, puffed for a moment and then turned to the young man in uniform. "Porter," lie said, “I’m going to St. Louis, to the fair. I want to be well taken eare of. I pay for it. Do you un derstand?" "Yes, sir. but—” “Never mind any ‘huts.’ You listen to what 1 say. Keep the train boys away from me. Dust me olf whenever I want you to. Give me an extra blanket, and if there is anyone in the berth over me. slide him into another. 1 want you to—’’ “Hut, say, boss, 1—" “Young man, when I'm giving instruc tions 1 prefer to do the talking myself. You do as 1 say. Here is a two-<iollar bill. 1 want to get the good of it. Not a word, sir." The train was starting. The porter pocketed the bill with a grin and swung himself to the ground. “All right, boss!" ho shouted. “You can do the talking if you want to. I m powerful sorry you wouldn t let me tell you—but 1 ain’t going out on that train. ’ -• GAVE HIS MAN MUCH TIME He Could Take Sixteen Hours a Day to Do His Work If He B-equired It.

"Ade was a peculiar character, in his younger years," says the judge, “lie made my office a sort of a loafing place during the little time he spent in loafing. He was employed on a farm owned by a banker.

The next time anyone in your fam ily breaks a piece of china do not throw away the pieces, but save them carefully. If the piece broken should be a large plate, it will be especially valuable to you, although anything of the sort will be of use. If you have no paints of your own, wait until the family have some paint ing done about the house. Then get a little of the paint and a small brush. For five cents you can buy at any NOVEL CHINA PIECE. grocery store a small package of china cement, says the Chicago Inter Ocean. This will fasten together the edges of the broken china until the plate or other piece looks as good as now. However, it would not do to use it as if it had never been broken, for a very little use would smash it altogether, but for ornamental pur poses it is all right. Cut from any old magazine the prettiest figure you can find. It must be a shilhouette figure; that is, full . g 1 ^ uti 1 1 fi .1 n lo vrrn especially in the advertising pages. Paste several of these figures lightly ail over the bottom of the plate, or if the object brokDn he a pitcher or cup, all over the outside surface. Now paint over the whole thing, pictures and all, with your paint, putting on a good, thick coat. Before the paint is dry, loosen with a pin the edges of the figures you have pasted on the china. Now strip them all off, being very careful not to smudge the edges. Of course, there will be no paint on the china where it was covered by the picture, and the outline of the picture will show in white again its surrounding back ground of paint. The plate, thus prepared, will make a very dainty and attractive orna ment, and you will find it lots of fun 1 making this novel use of old bits of china. _ COUNTRY GIRL COSMETICS Right at Eancl, the Country Girl Has i Materials for Beauty Lotions. The girl living on a farm has so many materials at hand with which to make acceptable gitts to city friends, and not the least of these are the ingredients for harmless but helpful cosmetics. And. by the way, asks the Pilgrim, did you know that word cosmetic was derived from a Greek term signifying skilled in the art of decoration or ornament? From the first, rhubarb sprouts and let tuce leaves on through spinach (for col oring creams and lotions), strawberries, cucumbers, watermelons and quince, with honey and milk and nuts, the girl on the farm lias the best and purest materials to choose from and work with. An expensive Italian cream is made front the gVound green seeds of cucum bers, melons and pumpkins made into Hour which is slightly perfumed and made into a paste with sweet cream. The basis of nearly all washes for chapped hands is quince seeds, so one can make their own at slight expense by adding extract of witch hazel to the emulsion. With care the girl living on a farm should have the proverbial rose leaf or peaches and cream complexion until she is at least 75 years of age. The juice of cucumbers enters largely into the preparation of many face creams and watermelon juice is a famous southern face wash. Tomato juice is fine for an oily, greasy shin and the acid of straw berries rivals that of lemons as a bleach ing agent. The basis of the most satis factory cream is clarified mutton tallow, which, made creamy with almond oil. sweet with your favorite perfume and colored with the juices of lettuce, spin ach. rose petals or currants, will give both beauty and pleasure to the re cipient. Try out mutton suet in a dou ble boiler just as lard is rendered, and when it is cold use the top portion, melt ing it in a bowl set in hot water, strain through a hair sieve, then through cheese cloth, and heat in the almond oil or other ingredients while still creamy. The addition of one dram of tincture of benzoin or one-half a dram of salicylic acid will prevent the emul sion from becoming rancid. Care of the Hands. When washing the hands always use a pure soap containing no free alkali and rinse the soap thoroughly away. Chapped hands are common to indi viduals with poorly circulating blood, and also to those who frequently im merse their hands in either hot or cold water. This cosmetic jelly should be used frequently as a preventive of a rough, sensitive surface. Thirty grains of gum tragacanth, seven ounces of rose water, one-half ounce of glycerin, one half ounce of alcohol, one teaspoonful of pure borax and two drops of oil of rose. Let the tragacanth stand in the rose water for three days, strain and add other ingredients. This makes a delightfully lovely clear jelly, which dries immediately upon application and which never leaves the skin oily. It can be used on face or hands. The Lemon Bath. A lemon bath is considered a daily ne cessity in the West Indies. Three or four limes or lemons are cut into the water and allowed to lie for half an hour, so that the juice may be extract ed. Such a bath gives to the skin a de lightful sense of freshness and clean liness. A PRETTY DAISY PILLOW. Crochet Work Employed for This Novel Pillow, Which Can Easily Be Made. Any little girl who Is able to crochet can easily make this pretty gift for mother, says the Boston Globe. First draw two circles any size you wish (18 inches In diameter is a good size) on paper. Cut out circle and lay on square of sage green denim (18x18 inches), and cut the denim into a circle the exact size of the paper circle. Then buy one spool of white silk finished cotton, one spool of dark green (for the leaves), and one spool of yellow. Crochet the daisies and leaves according to the following di rections: For the daisies make four chain, using the yellow’ silk-finished cotton. In the first ch, make as many s c as are required to make a perfect circle. Break the silk and tie in the white; * ch 10, work back 10 s c in the ch just made, and fasten down with si st. Pass to next st of center, and repeat from *; repeat all around. The flowers seen from the side are made as follows: With the yellow silk make one-haif circle, and work petals around the outer edge, as di rected above: To make a side vein, showing the under side of flower, make a quarter circle with the gre: n silk, and work petals around the edge as before di rected. If you wish to vary the length .of the petals* yon may do sc by making some of the. chains short er man umers. rui me leaves, wum 4 ch with the green silk. 3 d c in the first ch; turn and make 2 d c in the last st of the round just. made. Work 2 sts in the next 2 sts of the last round; turn, make 2 d c in last st oi last round, 3 d c in next 3 sts; turn and repeat for next row. Now nar row 1 st in each round till there are but 2 sts left. Insert the hook in both sts, and draw the silk through both sts; this points the end of leaf. Vary the size of leaves by making more oi less sts at the beginning, widening and narrowing as directed for first leaf. Sew the flowers and leaves or the pillow as shown in accompanying illustration and draw with lead pencil the stems. Outline stems with the green silk. It is a good idea to but tonhole . the leaves and flowers onto the denim. When this side is com pleted cut another circle of denim the same size, for back. Around the edge you may use a cord, a ruffle of ribbon or a ruffle of the denim with a herring bone stitch around edge of ruffle. This is also very pretty made with yellow daisies with brown cen ters on brown linen. LADY DOCTORS FOR CRAZED German Specialist Advocates Women Physicians in Hospitals for Lunatics. One of the most famous German physicians lor the treatment of mental diseases, Prof. Ludwig, is earnestly ad vocating the employment of womeD physicians in lunatic asylums. After years of investigation he has come to the conclusion that the insane are pe culiarly susceptible to a woman's pres ence and influence, not only the women, but the men as well. He says he has been instrumental in obtaining the ad mission of one woman physician to an asylum for women in south Gsrmany. and the results are simply phenomenal. The women are more tractable, and in the cases where mental disease is the result of sexual trouble the woman doc tor works wonders. Ludwig is certain that in a short time no men physicians will be employed in female lunatic asy lums. His opinion is supported in large measure by another eminent authority, Dr. Krapelin.

The Following Plan of Construction Is Recommended by George E. Scott. It. is always difficult to give full in structions how to build a silo correctly so that, the . majority can compre hend the full idea of what is meant. In sections where the soil and subsoil made up of gravel formation, the bottom should he cemented, as the liquor from the silage would leach away and sulti mately spoil the silage. On the other hand, if the soil is clay and a clay subsoil, if well compacted 1 would prefer it to even cement, as it can he made water proof very readily. In our illustration the bottom and sides of wall will have to be cemented water-proof up to the top of wall, as there would net be any opportunity for drainage and outside water would get in and soon destroy the silage, at least to the top cf the ground. It is not prac tical to go more than lour feet in the ground with a pit. as no one wants to lift ensilage more than four feet, if that high. It would be better to break stone six Inches over tlie bottom of the excava tion and begin the wall on top of it. Grout the top of the stone and then put a cement coat on. one inch thick, and up the sides of the wall to the lining. In Ohio nearly ail the silos are made of Ijhf-inch flooring Eeven-eigths-ineh t hick, commonly known as Georgia pine well matched and secret nailed. To un dertake to break joints in liningup a si:o makes a lot of trouble, and while a little stronge r, it lias never been proven worth the time, as none of those made in sec dons have as yet racked in the least, and were I going to erect a new one i would make it just like the one de scribed in this article, and the article re ferred to. If the doors are closely fit ted with bevel edges, there is little dan ger of spoiling, but if the doors are too loose, then it would be wise to pad them with felt. There seems to be some fear w ith peo ple that the lining would shrink through the summer so badly as to affect the keeping of the ensilaae. but we have not found it the case with ours. I think that more silage is spoiled because not ?venly tramped, as it should be. 1 •imtv Tact coocAn I rrcic fr.rr*o/l trv tal.-n nne of two men out of the pit and left an inexperienced man in. who could not keep it well distributed and tramped near the top, and the result was the silage spoiled some on one side down a 'ew feet. It is not doing it this year, as the men kept it well packed. I spoke of not roofing the silo and that, aside from the snow getting in it was better for the rain that would fall on it. We have pre nared to put a roof on it more for the looks than utility. It may last a little longer, hut we have not weatherboarded It. nor shall we this year, although bur illustrations shew both patterns with siding on them. In case I did side the silo I would arrange to make the joint on another hoop below the one on which .he lining was joined.—Ohio Farmer. DISCARD THE ICE WATER. Where a Little Trouble and Expense Will Bring the Dairyman Good Returns. “On many farms cattle are allowed to £0 to some distant pond or creek, where a, hole is cut in the ice for them to drink, when, at an expense of perhaps $50, water in abundance could be got at the barn, writes Mr. T. B. Terry in the Practical Farmer. "This is just the way it used to be on my farm. But after get ting fixed, it is no more work to pump the water than to go and cut the holes n the ice; and the manure saved in a ■ ingle season would go a long way to ward paying the $50, to say nothing of the saving in feed from having the water ;ome 20 degrees warmer, and the com :ort of the stock. “Cattle often do not drink half enough when the water is freezing cold, and" hence they do not thrive as well. ’If 1 am thirsty I cannot drink ice water rnough at one time to quench my thirst, it will chill my stomach, and for the mo ment make me think I have enough; but ;oon I want more. If I go to the well and get fresh water at a temperature of >0 degrees, I can drink enough to satisfy ne at one time. How much more will :his be true of animals, which drink so nucn mure in piupui ■ ion iu men sue. uu •tecount of their food being so much iriev!" Foundation of Dairying. The motherhood of the cow is the foundation of dairying. This foundation has not been understood in the past, and the mother quality was set at naught. The care and feeding of the mother are things that should receive our first attention, but they have been the things to receive attention last. As soon as the cow is dry it has been the custom to cut down her feed and some times to let her go with only hay and a poor quality of hay at that. This is not a treatment that is likely to develop the calf within her or to improve the milk ing qualities of the cow herself.— Farmers’ Review. HAULING OF MANURE. Some Suggestions for the Doing of This Work in the Win ter Time. During the winter every progressive farmer should be planning and getting things together to make work as easy as possible when spring’s work begins, says George C. Reynolds, in the Epit omist. The farmer who makes it a business to haul his barnyard manure out on the land while covered with snow is taking one long step towards putting in a profitable winter’s work. This not only makes the work easier, hut on the other hand, gets the manure where it will do the most possible good as a fertilizer. Some farmers are averse to hauling manure and spreading on snow, because they think when the spring break up comes the non-porous condition of the soil permits the wash ing away of a large percentage of the fertilizer value of manure. There is no question but what a percentage of the manure value is lost through wash ing at this time of the year, but experi ments go to show that a much larger percentage is lost before it ever reaches the field than after it is spread upon the land. Last winter, feeline 'hat there was some reason to believe there might be more loss caused by washing than one might suppose, I determined to set tle the matter for myself by trying a little experiment. There is no reason why any farmer need trust to what others say regarding the matter, when on his own farm at no expense, ex periments can be conducted that will settle the matter for always. When the snow is a foot or deeper haul out five or ten loads on land that is to be plowed the coming spring and give the matter a careful test. After the spow has gone down to about five Inches on the level, haul out a like number of loads and spread as near as possible to the manure previously hauled out. Then again after the snow has all gone, and the ground setues in me simug, repeat the same number of loads near that which was spread on the snow. Stake off the strips so that there will be no mistakes made, and note careful ly the growth, color and general de velopment of the crop. If it is possible to have the crop of corn it will be much easier to distinguish the difference if there should be any. The experiment 1 conducted on my own farm proved very favorable to hauling manure and spreading on snow, but as all experi ments do not result the same under varying conditions I advise every farm er to give the matter a thorough trial on his own ia.nd. THE SNOWY TREE CRICKET Serious Enemy of the Raspberry and How the Pest May Be Dealt With. One of the most serious insect ene mies of the raspberry is the Snowy Tree Cricket. This is a pale green insect with very transparent wings folded on its back when at rest. The male insect may often be heard during the latter part of summer making shrill musical notes in the raspberry patch. The female deposits her eggs in the raspberry canes, cutting diagonally about two-thirds of the way through the cane and depositing an egg in the si t. Then moving along, she deposits another close to this, and so on until there is a whole row of eggs, usually containing from 5 to 20. The egus develop considerably in th' autumn and early in the spring, and FEMALE SNOWY TREE CRICKET AND SECTION OF RASPBERRY CANE, SHOWING EGG PUNCTURES. are often mistaken for small yellow ish colored worms. The eggs hatch in the spring, and the young feed upon other insects and sometimes upon leaves. In this stage, however, they do little damage, the principal damage being done to the canes when the eggs are deposited within them. This often so weakens the canes that they break U U U1 UCUU U V t 1 . *UttJW UJVO luv die above the point of injury. From the habits of the insect, it will be seen that it is difficult successfully to spray to kill it, and the best way to keep it in check is to cut out all of the canes containing eggs each fall. This is not so difficult a task as might appear, as the incisions are readily seen as regular rows of wounds. By split ting the canes the large eggs may be seen laid regularly in the canes. If this cutting out of infected canes is done when the patch is pruned it may be done with very little extra la bor. Constant watchfulness will hold the tree crickets in check, so that they will not do serious damage. It is difficult to entirely exterminate them, as they deposit eggs not only upon the raspberry, but upon the apple, cherry, grape, peach and other fruit trees, as well. Upon these, however, the injury is seldom serious. The accompanying cut shows the female snowy tree cricket (Oecauthus nivens) and the appearance of a cane upon which eggs have been laid.—Iowa Experiment Station. Not Affected by Food. Prof. S. M.
