other Saxon nations as wives.
It began when Harootunian, him*
self, fell a victim to the bright eyes
of an English lass. That was about
five years ago. The marriage of the
Harootunlans was so blissful and re
sulted in so much happiness that
he decided that the marriage of the
200 young Armenians of good stand
ing and sufflclent worldly goods In
this city would solve the problem
of taking care of these fiery young
bloods.
His first "victim” was a friend. G.
Mouradian. He met the latter in the
park one day and told him of his
hai py home, and then took him
there to dinner. He knew of a
charming young English girl who
v’ns of marriageable age and was de
sirable. He brought the two together
at the Reformed Church, and within
two weeks a marriage resulted. Cer
tainly Harootunian was best man.
Then in rapid succession followed
8. .Marsho, a musician, who was In
troduced to a young Saxon girl and
gave her no peace until she was
Mrs. Marsho; .Incob Halvajlan,
George Gasvlnnie, Samuel Bahi,
Robert Tootjian. M. Garo, R. DluJlan.
D. Safady and lastly M. G. Rooblan.
‘‘There are 520 Armenians In Los
Angeles. ’• said Harootunian, “and all
of them are thrifty. Of this number
perhaps 200 are young men of mar
riageable age. There are but two
Armenian girls in Ixjb Angeles.”
thing Suits Are Burned
And he did. hanging them out to dry
on a clothes line In the back yard of
the Adams’ home, at Bergen Beach.
After he had finished the washing and
hung the wash out, Mr. Adams came
into the city and did not return until
the next day, which was Aug. 14. Deso
lation awaited him. The bathing suits
lay in a charred mass before the por
tico of his home.
“What is this?" he demanded.
“Tut. tut!” replied Mrs. Adams.
"They are burned. Can’t you see?”
Mr. Adams reported the catastrophe
to Odiva. who procured a warrant
against Mrs. Adams.
Magistrate McGuire released Mrs
Adams on the ground that there was
no evidence to show she had started
the fire.
ited Down as a Burglar
"Is he there?" whispered the police
man to the happy father.
“Sure, and a big fellow, too." was
the whispered reply.
"Where Is he?”
"He's in the back bedroom. Want
to go back?” asked McCarthy.
"Certainly. I’ll go back. Just Ist
me get one look at him.”
“The nurse Is In there, too," said
tie father, eyeing the policeman.
"What! Why, she may be killed by
this time!"
"No. he Isn’t so savage as that, al
•nough he is a strapping big fellow."
The door was pushed gently open
and the policemen, still clutching his
revolver, leaped in. He looked at the
baby, soundly sleeping in the arms of
a smiling nurse, and then turned to
the father.
1 thought all the time It was a
burglar. Isn’t it?"
"Of course not. He’s going to be
a policeman, not a burglar." said Me-
Carthy.
Then Hoffman returnee to the police
station and announced hiut It was too
early to arrest the person who had

EASY TO RESTORE HAT
HOW WORK OF FRESHENING MAY
BE ACCOMPLISHED.
Washing in Denatured Alcohol Will
Do Wonders With the Frame-
Faded Flowers the Hardest to
Bring Back to Color.
i he girl who does not want to spend
another dollar on her hats can do a
surprising amount of freshening. Let
her remove the trimming and freshen
the hat itself. A black hat is easy
It can be made to look like new by
washing In denatured alcohol after
dusting. The entire hat may be soaked
in the alcohol and while still damp it
is straightened where bent.
The woman who once a week wipes
off black hats with alcohol and also
uses it on ribbons will find her hats
wear much longer.
Colored hats that have faded are
seemingly hopeless, but a box of wa
ter-color paint, or some of the spe
clal dyes for straw hats, soon restores
their beauty. Soiled white hats can
be freshened by bread crumbs—a fa
vorlte method of cleaning with many
milliners —and they are improved by
coating thickly with magnesia, which

If good, they should be sent to a

Wipe dry and hang in the sun. While
still damp, press with a hot iron on
the wrong side, with a thin cloth
over the straw.
White feathers and the numerous
aigrettes of the season may be made
snowy by denning in a paste made of
gasoline and white cornmeal, and rins
ing with gasoline alone, or with more
of the paste until it shows no soil. If
the curl has come out. hold ft over the
kitchen range or curl the flues, a few
at a time, with the back of a heated
silver knife.
Ribbons may be washed in nlcohol
nnd pressed under heavy paper or a
thick cloth while still slightly damp.
Faded flowers are almost hopeless,
but may be freshened by coloring
with powdered rouge, rubbing off the
edges for shaded effects.
Steel buckles can be soaked in coal
oil for six or eight hours, then ]»ol
ished with fine emery. Jet is bright
ened by rubbing in alcohol and polish
ing with tissue paper. Dulled bronze
and gilt trimmings are difficult, but
may be somewhat freshened by good
silver polish thinned with alcohol In

Lace that will wash should be flrat
soaked In cold water, then put in a
glass jar with lukewarm water and a
tiny pinch of borax and well shaken.

CONSTRUCTION OF TRAP NEST
Without Use of Device Results From
Individuals of Any Flock Must
Bs Uncertain.
(By J. I* JONES. Mechanical Engineer
Oklahoma Experiment Station.)
It Is not necessary to dwell on the
advantages of using trap nests. The
primary object is to develop a heavy
laying strain. It has been found by
the use of trap nests that the number
of eggs laid per hen in an average
flnek varies from 40 to 245. Without
using trap nests, the results from
Buch a flock would be uncertain and
probably unsatisfactory. It is the ob-

ject of the poultryman to breed and
build up the strain which lays the
heaviest, by breeding to the heavy
producers.
For fanciers, the trap nest is indis
pensable on account of the fact that
In the ordinary pen there are from six
to twelve females to one male. If
trap nests are used, and there are
as many as there are females in the
pen, it is possible to distinguish each
hen's eggs, while if the trap nests are
' not used, this is impossible.
The use of trap nests goes far to
prevent the hens forming the habit of
egg-eating. They are likely to form
this habit if kept in limited quarters.
If so kept, they are probably not given
the ven* best food, and probably not
enough of it, especially animal food.
The accompanying drawings of a
bank of trap nests are almost self ex-
I placatory. The nests are built with
out any top or bottom. The ben en

passes on to tbe next compartment
toward the front end. To inspect the
nest and to remove the hen, ascertain
her number, and secure the eggs, the
front door is simply unbuttoned and
let down. It will be noticed that the
two doors are fastened together wtih
a cord, so that when the front door

Is let down, the trap is automatically
set again. The hen will find it diffi
cult to leave through the back door
at this time, as the hanging wire per
mits her to go one way only. These
are so simple that in making them in
almost any quantity, the material
should not cost over 15 cents, at most,
per trap nest.
SOME FACTS ABOUT TURKEYS
Ons Sensible Thing Is to Keep Beet
Birds for Breeding and Bend
Others to Market.
Turkeys kept for breeding stock
should be the best that there is in the
flock. It is difficult for some people
to keep their best turkeys and
send the others to market, but it’s the
only sensible way to do. The habit of
selling the best is not characteristic
of only the least intelligent people; it
is common with the people who have
raised turkeys all their lives, and
people who would not think of
breeding other stock of the farm
in such a careless way. These
people have attained the success
and profits in turkey raising that are
enjoyed by the man who handles them
os fairly as he does his cows and
hogs.
The best care in the world can do
little with poorly bred poults and
turkey chicks. You cannot expect
largo turkeys from small breeders.
Size is not the only thing to be con
sidered in selecting the stock; thrift
and firmness have as much to do with
the choice ar the size; big, well-built
bodies and iegs to be desired
also.
And on top of all,'do not ruin tbo
vigor of your strain by too early
breeding.
Fresh Air Is Needed.
Fowls are obliged to throw off mv
of the waste of the body through t »
lungs. They do not sweat in the
sense that do other animals, but in
stead breathe several times faster
than sweating animals when heated.
To keep in god health a hen requires
nearly seven times the amount of
fresh air in proportion to its size as
does a horse.

of Fair Malden.
He was diffident and unversed tn so

with a reigning belle, and had nerved
himself to woo and win. So he se
cured an introduction, and in due
course went to pay his first call.
He thought it would help him out a
bit if he took her some flowers, so
he bought a superb bouquet for her. Ah
he reached the bouse, however, he re
membered that she had a splendid con
servatory, and he tried to think of u
way out of the difficulty. Suddenly he
recollected the saying anent "taking
coals to Newcastle," and determined
to make use of it. But he was dread
fully nervous. He broke into a cold
sweat as he rang the bell, and when
the divinity appeared in the recep
tlon room he didn’t know whether ho
stood on his head or on his heels.

CAREFUL DOCTOR
Prescribed Change of Food Instead of
Drugs.
It takes considerable courage Mr a
doctor to deliberately prescribe only
food for a despairing patient, instead
of resorting to the usual list of medi
cines.
There are some truly scientific phy
sicians among the present generation
who recognize and treat conditions as
they aro and should be treated, re
gardless of the value to their pockets.
Here’s an Instance:
“Four years ago I was taken with
severe gastritis and nothing would
stsy on my stomnch, so that.l was on
the verge of starvation.
“I beard of a doctor who had a sum
mer cottage near me— a specialist
from N. Y.—and as a last hope, sent
for him.
"After he examined me carefully
be adviced me to try a email quantity •
of Orape-Nuts at first, then as my
stomach became stronger to eat more.
"I kept at It and gradually got so f
could cat and direct three traapoon
fuls. Then I began to lune color la
my face, memory became clear, where .
before everything seemed a blank. My
limbs got stronger and 1 could walk.
So I steadily recovered.
"Now after a year on Grape-Hats E

prised at the way I grew fleshy and
