' "From mi artistic point of view it
flaay Mem absurd, but it Is nevertheless
truo that American taste dominates the
output of Turkish rugs," said a man who

products of the orient, to a Philadelphia
Record reporter. "Any importer will
bear me out in this. Of course, inasmuch
as the Armenians and Turks who make
these rugs hare no power looms on
which to reproduce exact copies, 11
would Ma?i ridiculous to suppose that
more than one rug of the same pattern
and design could be turned out. But the
American dealer haa learned to know
pretty much what aovt of rug appeal*
to the American buyer, and he says to
hie a#ent on the other side: 'Make me
a lot of rugs that look as much like thi?
as poMlble.' 80 the native weavers, on
their hand looms, do their best to copy
the colors of a special design that is put
before them. This handicaps thorn, for
theee untutored artisans have their own
Ideal*, Just as a painter of pictures has.
and It is galling to be thus restricted. It
la also not very gratifying to realize that
iso rica American, who Is often the par- I
T?nu, with no idea of art, should dictate
the output of an artistic product that is
centuriM old. But the rich American is
the greatest buyer of oriental rugs, and
must b? considered."

Hindoo Thieve* Would Hot Steal the

The prejudice against blood that in '

has been made to s?rve a useful purpose.
Whan the American engineers
were building an electric power station
in the Myeore territory In southern
India they found that something
was wrong with the lubrication of the
machinery. The oil disappeared. They
discovered that a Hindoo must, by his
religion, take a periodical bath in oil.
Tie workmen had drained the bearings
for bathing purpoeee.
How to atop the thieving was a pussling
problem until some one solved It.
The Hindoo does not eat meat and
lie will aot touch anytning that has
blood in it Two or three animals
were killed, therefore, and blood was
dripped luto the bearings. There wa? >

We want to build all bur coloniea of
bewa up strong, for those that are
strong in numbers arc the only ones
we can count on to store a good crop
of surplus. One of ti?e greatest drawback
to successful bee keeping is that
there are so many weak colonies on
hand at the beginning of the honey
flow that it takes them through the
short honey harvest to become strong
enough to store hbney. . Each and
every hive should be overflowing with
bees at the beginning of the principal
honey harvest, for when they are thus
very populous they can be depended
upon to do good work, if the season ia
Too maiiT colonies run short of oro
vision (hiring spring when they ar?
building up, and the result Ik that they
are crippled in force, for they canuot
ronr a brood without plenty of food in
the hive or have daily access to a flow
of honey. Feeding is the only method
that will bring them up to standard
requirements, hence they should bt
liberally fed.
Weak colonies may be brought up
strong very rapidly by giving thum
some brood from the stronger ones,
but we must exercise care in this or |
we will cripple the strongest ones and
be 110 better off than before. Draw
only on extremely strong colonies tc
strengthen weak ones. If we have col
onies that lire in danger of swumiing
before the honey season is properly on
we can draw from them and thus cheek
them from swarming.
It i? always in order to save frame*
of honey over from one season to another
for the purpose of supplying
the bees with honey in spring. Thi?

doing it, beside* the most sure. Kee{

Bran In excellent for poultry, anil
one i>oint in favor of bran is that
it contain* a much larger proportion
of lime than any other cheap
food derived from grain, and as the
ahull* of eggs are composed of lime
it is essential that food rich in lime
be provided. 11 may he urged that
the use of oyster sheila will provide
lime, hut it will be found that
it is the lime in the food that is
most Hcrviceahle, because it is in a
form that can be better digested and
assimilated than carbonate of lime,
says the American Fancier. I
Clover is also rich in lime; and
when u metis of cut clover and bran
is given the fowls they will need no
oyster shells or other mineral matter
as a source from which to draw
the nupply of lime for the egga. I)<?
not forget that in summer, however,
the line of all kinds of foods should
be lined with judgment. If the hens
have a free range give no food at all
as long as they are laying, but if
they begin to fall olf, let bran be the
lending ingredient of the food allowed.
In winter the lirmi nrnl i>liivur
are even more essential, as the fowl#
cannot then secure green food on the
U?v* l,??rn?d ? l.eaaun.
Those who stick to the old method
of netting hens, and there are many
thousands who do, have learned valuable
lessons from the incubator,
suyu an exchange. First: They have
learnud to ehooKe eggs of uniform
size and of perfect shape, with Hound
shells. Aw incubator chickens do not
have lice, they have learned, secondly,
to dust thoroughly their hens before
setting, and two or three times
during the period of incubation.
Thirdly: They have learned to use
clean nest boxes and clean bedding.
They confine the liens to coops and
take great pains to place proper food
and water before them. Fourthly:
Many test the eggs under hens, fidlowing
the example of the machine
men, and after testing three sittings,
for example, and throwing out the
infertile eggs, place the live eggs under
the two hens and re-get the third,
