ROOMS DECORATED IN BLACK New Idea Comes From Vienna and Reflection Will Show It Has Much to Recommend It. Behold black now as the fashionable color of the interior decorator. The liking for it arose in Vienna, where interior decorating is an art much thought of. There some of the new houses, or rooms which have been re decorated, show wall papers with black backgrounds, in which huge, bright flowers are printed. Carpets, too, are of black. The idea of this method of decorating is, apparently, to make the room strictly a background for the furniture and persons in it. The brightly flowered paper, of couse, de tracts from this effect, but the sort of paper more often used does not have the bright flowers. It shows a black ground, with a gray or misty white figure. In a room thus grounded pictures framed in black are hung. The effect Is startling. The pictures stand out in reality from their somber surround ings. White enameled furniture is looked on with favor for use in black rooms. Surely such a setting would give the persons in it chance to shine forth in all the glory of color lent them by skin and eyes, hair and clothes. On the other hand, wouldn’t a room so furnished cast a depress ing spell on the woman who found herself shut within its four walls for many hours in a day? There is an outgrowth of this craze for black which is interesting, espe cially to those who live in apartments or other crowded quarters, where the kitchen as well as the other rooms of the house comes under occasional in spection of guests. This is the black enamaled jar or box for cakes, bread and grocery supplies of various sorts. It is painted brilliantly with big red roses, and makes an interesting note of color. Six boxes or jars of this sort ranged in orderly array on shelves give a distinctive note to the the most uninteresting pantry or kitchen. MUST HAVE THE SUN’S RAYS Golden Hair Absolutely Requires Them, if Beautiful Tint of Tresses Is to Be Retained. Summer time is a time of trial for the girl with golden hair. Dust and grime collect with disastrous effect during the summer months, giving a dull drab effect to locks which should have a lively luster. What can she do to bring back the gold? the blonde asks in despair. In nine cases out of ten she is tempted to turn to the peroxide bottle, but if she is a wise igirl she knows danger lies that way. "Peroxide dries the scalp dangerously, makes the hair brittle and easily broken, and besides imparts an Ufa natural yellow to the hair which de- ceives no one. If your hair is drab and dull-looking instead of gleaming with gold do not immediately begin to doctor it up by applying various lotions, but first look to the cause of this lifeless condition. Have you fallen into the bad habit of washing your hair at night and going to bed with it half dry? Or perhaps you take a rainy day, when there isn’t anything else to do, to give your tresses a thorough cleaning. Os course you think that heat from a radiator or stove or vigorous fanning is enough to dry the hair. It is not. Your hair needs sun if it is going to keep its gold, and a sun bath you must give it as often as you can. Let your hair down your back and sit in the sun for an hour or two, let ting the golden rays impart a bit of their brilliancy of your hair. Blonde hair must be washed more frequently than dark, and the selection of a shampoo and the manner of washing have much to do with preserving its ! color. A few drops of ammonia or a dash of soda added to your basin of water will brighten the hair, but they are both drying agents, and unless the hair is naturally very oily will finally injure the hair and spoil its gloss.

POULTRY ♦MTS TO DISCOURAGE BROODY HENS There Are Many Ways of Breaking Up Broodiness—Coop With Slat ted Bottom Is Excellent. The end of the breeding season seems to be the appointed time for hens to get broody. Earlier in the year when their services would have been most welcome great difficulty was experienced in finding sufficient to sit on the desired number of eggs. August is too late for the utilizing of their broodiness, unless a few duck eggs be set under some of them. At this time, too, the scarcity of eggs makes it the desire of all poultry keepers to break up their “broodies” and have them laying again a* soon as possible. There are many ways of breaking hens of broodiness, and the more bar barous ones such as tying the hen up by one leg, throwing cold water over her, or making her stand in water should be forgotten and practiced no longer. The same and better results can be obtained by more human meth ods. Placing the hen in an ordinary coop, with a slatted bottom, and suspending the coop from the ceiling of the Coop for Broody Hens. Scratching pen about a foot above th« floor by wires or chajns attached to the four corners has been found effi cacious. A gentle swing whenever en tering the pen will soon make the birds desirous of joining their more busy companions. A little Epsom salts given in a mash and an abundant supply of green food should be given. All foods which have the slightest tendency toward heat production, such as corn, meat scraps, etc., must be withheld for a few days. \ Take the bird in time. It is prac tically impossible to break a hen ! after allowing her to sit on a nest for two or three days. It should always be remembered i that in the ordinary course of nature • a hen that has laid persistently all winter and spring, demands a short rest, which broodiness gives. ONE HOT WEATHER TROUBLE When Diarrhea First Makes Its Ap pearance It May Be Checked by Use of Charcoal. (By H. B. SPECK.) Diarrhea is one of the most com mon hot weather troubles in poultry of all ages, and when it makes its first appearance, charcoal freely fed may check or control the disorder. Di arrhea may be due to food or drink ing water being foul with droppings or other filth; to feeding impure, musty and moldy food; to overheat ing; to feeding in dusty, musty or ! moldy litter; to unclean quarters and j dampness; to overfeeding on meat food or feeding spoiled meat; to eat ing poisoned substances or to indiges- ! tion from any cause. The first thing ! to do when diarrhea makes its ap- I pearance is to find the cause and re- i move it. Drinking from filthy pools in unclean runs after a sudden show er, or drinking barnyard seepage is j a common cause of diarrhea in hot j weather. |[yHLWMK| Watch the grit box. Keep all your houses wide open day and night. Don’t crowd your birds. Give them all the range you can. See your little chicks have plenty of shade and water. Sell the rooster and buy an alarm clock. It’s more useful now. Wheat and oats are better hot weather feeds than corn and Kafir. Don't forget to keep down the lice; just a little grease on top of chick’s head is good. Be sure to store away some clover or alfalfa hay this summer for the lay ers in cold weather. The cost of pure-bred stock is not so prohibitive but that it may be had by all who raise poultry. Don’t forget to sprinkle lime on drop boards, not too much, for it is hard on the chickens’ feet. The water vessel now needs a shel ter from the sun instead of a heater under it. Warm water is no better in summer than in winter as a drink. THE WINSLOW MAIL. WASHINGTON CITY Prehistoric Bones Are Found in a Maryland Cave WASHINGTON. —James W. Gidley, assistant curator of the National museum, has completed his work of exploring the cave at Corrigansville, Md., for the bones of prehistoric ani mals. The cave was opened when the big limestone cut was made for a rail way extension from Cumberland to Connellsville. Thirty-two distinct forms of prehis toric animals were found, and when the bones are cleaned up and looked into closer the number may run up to more than 40. There are in all about 17 skulls, and ten forms are represented by good skulls. In the find one of the most impor tant yet made is the following: The mastodon, which lived in about the midpleistocene period, estimated at 150,000 years or more ago. An extinct species of the horse, similar in some Congressman Fields Tells a Good One on Himself 14117 HEN I was making my cam- | fw paign last fall,” said Represent ative Fields of Kentucky, ‘ I started out to cover a country in which I was but little acquainted. Believing, like Polonius, that a fine front was a valu able asset, I arrayed myself in my best. When I got off the train at the county seat, whence I was to make my start, I met the candidate fer judge on my ticket, and making known to him my views, I found he agreed with me. “Accordingly, after putting up in the best quarters at the best hotel in the town, we next morning engaged the handsomest rig the best livery stable could boast, and, with a haughty driver on the box, sallied forth to conquer. “Night overtook us some miles from the village at which we had expected to put up, but soon after it fell we spied through the gloom an imposing looking mansion with many lights agleam. “Ringing the bell, we announced ourselves; whereupon a hospitable gentleman came out and ushered us into a parlor whose modest furnish ings seemed out of keeping with the dignity and size of the mansion. When Boy “Put One Over” on the Congressman CARTER GLASS of Lynchburg, Va., has his seat in the lower house tied down so hard and fast that the folks down in his district consider it almost a sacrilege even to talk about running against him. There was once a time, however, when the votes didn’t come so easy, and in those days Glass made it a practice to get out in a buggy and cover his entire district, I shaking every voter by the hand and kissing all their babies. | On one of these tours Glass, driving along a lonely stretch of Virginia road, came to a huge field of scraggly i corn being hoed by a boy of perhaps fifteen years. Glass drew his horse up, leaped out of the buggy, walked over and leaned against the fence. After ! a moment the boy, stopping hoeing, i \ Declares He Will Be More Careful in the Future FRANK D. HESTER, chief of a sub division of the division of war claims of the pension bureau, is at his desk again. Commissioner Saltzgaber decided that the 90 days’ suspension he had imposed upon Mr. Hester was too severe for such a trifling indiscre tion as Mr. Hester had committed. In the latter’s subdivision was a pretty temporary clerk who had com pleted her work and was about to leave. She had been a favorite, and as she was leaving she made a round of the room and planted a smacking kiss upon the mouth of every woman clerk. Reaching the desk of her now for mer chief, the smiling young woman, amid the titters of the other clerks, challenged Mr. Hester with: “Aren’t you going to kiss me good by, too?” Mr. Hester, with mind engrossed on an official paper, but with chivalry up permost. rose to the occasion and gave the young woman as good an oscula tory farewell as she presented. The tale was carried to Commis sioner Saltzgaber, who promptly sus pended Mr. Hester for 90 days, for the story had been enlarged upon on^ respects to the horse of the present day, but of which there was living at that time at least 14 distinct spe cies. The tapir, now to be found no farther north than Central and South America. An extinct peccary, a hoglike ani mal of more than twice the size now found in Central America. Bears, two small ones, about the size of the com mon black bear, but of extinct species, and one large one about the size of a grizzly bear. The wolverine, an extinct species of an animal not now known except in northern Canada. An extinct species of a large dog like animal about the size of a gray wolf, also one or two smaller species of the same animal, now' extinct. Several species of the rodent family, including woodchuck, porcupine and small field mice fam ilies. Two now extinct species of the rabbit family, one about the size of the jack rabbit, the other belong ing to the group of little coney rab bits, now' known only on the high peaks of the Rocky mountains and the high plateaus of Asia. Three dif ferent forms of bats now living in this vicinity, and one form of which is now living in New Mexico. J ftfsihs - All “When, later, we went to a belated supper, we were astonished to find a spacious dining room furnished as barely as the parlor. “It’s the true yeoman spirit,” ex plained the candidate for judge, and we got through a most meager meal as best we could. "We were up betimes next morning, after sleeping in most primitive quar ters, that did injustice to the noble mansion, and after a breakfast on a par with the supper we got in our rig and started away. Reaching the sum mit of a hill some half a mile away, we paused to look back at our night’s resting place. Just then a horseman drew up beside ug. “ ‘What place is that?’ I queried. “ ‘That?’ he replied. ‘Why, that’s the county poorhouse!’*' came over and also leaned on the fence on the other side. Glass introduced himself, and got directions as to how to find the boy’s father. Nevertheless, he stopped to chat a while, but the boy was silent and then some. Finally Glass turned to the crops. “Corn rows are pretty far apart, aren’t they?” he asked. “Yep. Planted ’em that way,” re sponded the boy, briefly. “Looks pretty small to me for this time of year,” said Glass. “Planted small corn,” said the boy, and spat contentedly. “Maybe you were a little late Id planting?” suggested Glass. “Nope,” said the boy succinctly. “We aim to have late corn.” Glass was now rather peeved. He looked at the boy sharply.. The lat ter was “chawin’ ” tobacco, and gaz ing calmly out into space. “H’mmm,” said Glass, clearing his throat. “There isn’t much between you and a fool, is there?" The boy looked up quickly, and then spat ruminatively. “Nope,” he remarked. “Just the fence.” its final recital. Investigation by the commissioner resulted in the with drawal of the suspension order. Mr. Hester declares he is going to be careful of his kissing in the future.

NO POSSIBILITY OF DOUBT Why Western Bishop Was Convinced of the Ancient Lineage of His Eastern Entertainers. A western bishop once attended a general convention in the east and was entertained by a New England family of long and honorable, if not lovable, lineage. They made no se cret of a time-won superiority over any one from the new and crude west, and cited their Pilgrim ancestors con stantly. The bishop was minded to bear this in Christian humility and forbearance, and did. But on his re turn home, he recounted his experi ences to the wife; and she, good soul, spoke her mind as it is the privilege of her kind to do, even where mere man must be silent. ✓ “I don’t believe that their family is such an old one,” she remarked. ‘“Are you sure that their ancestors were Pilgrims?” “I am certain, my dear,” answered the bishop. “This may seem to be exaggeration, but at times you could positively detect the fragrance of the Mayflower.” —New York Evening Post.
