Here is Life's full calendar, Her are hours of rest. Here are days and days of toil, And times for tears and jest; "None so good as those to come," So the wise men say: But to me the best must be Ever- Yesterday. Yesterday it never rained, Yesterday was fair. Not a sorrow dimmed the sun, Not a tear was there; Underneath the cloudless sky. In the Always May, All the earth was glad and young Only Yesterday. Now the difference! The hours All have grown so long; Half the flowers are withering, Half the world is wrong; All my friends are growing old, I am growing gray, Waiting till tomorrow's sun Rise on Yesterday. Reginald Wright Kauffman, in March Smart Set. - Political Nest. Some six weeks since we knew there was a "hen on" the political nest, but was not real sure as to exact location of nest or egg. Biding our time we are now fair ly sure the nest has been changed from one political field to an other, that the egg is a buzzards egg. and the hen an old one at the business. In fact so old that the files of the Democrat will show that the hen has been trying to get on that par ticular nest for eight years. As he has ceased to be a .Demo crat, ceased to be a Local Optionist and predicted that the Democratic or Republican party would go out of business and the Socialist would take its place, we fail to see how she can expect to hatch even a buzzards egg.

The thief uses it to determiue which house he may safely rob. The man next door sees the burglar, and calls up the police. The police arrive, catch the burglar and telephone for the Black Maria to take him to jail. The thief telephones a lawyer to defend him. The lawyer telephones for the bondsman to bail out his client and the banker telephones the sher iff that the bondsman's check is good. When the day of trial comes the clerk of the court, being a kind gentleman, telephones witnesses to be present When the burglar is convicted and sentenced the sheriff uses long distance to tell the war den of the penitentiary when his prisoner will be delivered. After that the telephone is kept hot by influential politicians petitioning the governer for a pardon. Hanni bal Journal. Keep the poultry house clean and neat and your efforts will be amply rewarded by the egg bnsket and kind words from your friends. Test the eggs on the seventh day and remove the infertiles, also those containing dead germs. Test again on the fourteenth day and re move all but those holding live chicks. I After the chicks are three weeks old, there is very little danger of overfeeding. Then, if other condi , tions are right, the more they eat of a variety of feed, the faster they grow. j Next to pure air, water is the j cheapest thing we can supply our i poultry. Do not forget that it must j be given in order to get eggs. Re duce the quantity and the egg yield will go with it. From March Farm Journal.

Honey may be of great value in cooking because of the fact that its use will keep cake and cookies moist for many weeks. Bakers know this to be-true and always use honey in he products which they desire to keep fresh for a long time. If the cake does become dry, it may be placed in a closed recep tacle like a. bread jar and will soon regain its freshness. Honey jumbles, one of the favorite products of the bakeshop, may be made at home without difficulty. The recipe calls for two quarts of flour, three table spoonfuls of melted lard, one fourth pint of molasses, one pint of strain ed honey, one and one-half level tablespoonfuls of baking soda, one evel teaspoonful of salt, one-half teaspoonful of vanilla extract and one-quarter of a pint of water. Baked in a quick oven, they are de- icious. The March New Idea Woman's Magazine. ' Miss, FJIa.Delaney, of Perry-has been the guest of her sister. MrsH. S MawhalL . , EGGS FOR SALE.
