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
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
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.

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
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
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
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.

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
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

midpleistocene period, estimated at

CARTER GLASS of Lynchburg, Va.,
has his seat in the lower house

folks down in his district consider it
almost a sacrilege even to talk about

fifteen years. Glass drew his horse up,

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
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
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

“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

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

NO POSSIBILITY OF DOUBT
Why Western Bishop Was Convinced
of the Ancient Lineage of His
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
