YOUR MONEY REFUBDE3, It tl fit hwt fan wb ni tr"'rrt --trtl SISTER'S SABLE MUFF By CLAUDINE SISSON. X "Good lands, but I've kicked a cat!" Miss Lysle Teller, stenographer in the city and living with her mother in a suburban village, had been one of the last to leave the electric car, and in the gloom of a winter's evening her foot had struck something soft and furry and kicked it ahead of her. "Here, pussy, pussy, pussy!" But pussy did not respond with a meow or reproach that she had been kicked. "My soul, but it's a muff!" So it was, and of the latest style and a very expensive one. Of course. someone who had passed that way had lost it , The next morning Miss Lyale asked the car conductor, but he could not help her out. She was carrying the muff to the office with her, and on the car with her was a hatchet-faced young man who was given to induc tion and inference. Here was a girl whose outfit did not cost over $35, and yet she was carrying a sable muff that must have cost hundreds. When Miss Lysle left the suburban car in the city the young man crowd ed forward and lifted his hat and said: It is about the muff I wish to speak to you." "O-h-h!" "My sister will be so glad!" "Then it was your sister who" "I was about to advertise the loss of the fur," suavely observed the young man. A young man who didn't like the look of the hatchet-faced one at all had halted within hearing distance, and he now stepped forward and said to Miss Lysle: "I beg your pardon, but is that young man annoying you?" "He claims that his sister lost thl3 muff, and I don't believe him." "You found it, did you?" "Yes, sir." "Better advertise for an owner. As for this fellow here, if he doesn't take himself off I'll call an officer. He's a fraud and a swindle! Good morning." The young man took himself off, but he rode down town on' the same car with Miss Lysle, just the same, and followed her to the office where she was employed. If he could get hold of that muff it would be $50 in his pocket. Miss Lysle's brother Ben, the rising young lawyer, had advised her to ad vertise her find. At the office she was advised to wait a day and let the loser advertise. She adopted this plan. When she started for home in the evening she carried the muff with her. The hatchet-faced young man was waiting to follow her. That sable muff was a great temptation to him. Mr. Clyde Melton, the young sculp tor, came along just as the girl step ped to the walk and he followed on not because he was seeking a flirta tion not because he identified her as the girl of the morning whose part he had taken against hatchet-face, but because he had received a message from his sister in the same suburb Miss Lylse lived in stating that some thing awful had happened and he must come as soon as ever he could. And so the trio rode on until the "All out!" of the conductor was shout ed. Then there was a scramble, and Miss Lysle hurried away, the thief fol lowed, and the sculptor almost ran. The thief was too precipitate. He at tacked the girl while the sculptor was yet within hearing. Her screams as she fought with one hand and held on to the muff with the other brought Mr. Melton back, and he recognized the assailant at once. Right and justice seldom triumph, but this was one of the exceptions. The thief was knocked down. He was punched. He was battered. He was choked. He had his eyes blacked and his nose skinned. He was jerked to his feet and kicked around the cor ner, and the sculptor turned to re- j v u u .1 u u v jl 1.. n 1,14 luu , sable muff. She had disappeared! Ten minutes later his sister was weepingly saying to him: "Oh, Clyde, its awful just awful!" "Baby, dead?" "No. I've lost that new sable muff that I bought the other day!" "Sable muff?" "Yes. I lost it on the street com ing from the car." "But you have advertised it?" "No. Fred is away, you know, and I didn't know how to get an advertise- ! ,,,t" vt,dic,?

The sculptor went back to the spot. He didn't look for the girl's tracks. He walked two blocks down a side street and then rang a bell. Luck had been a good guide. It was Miss Lysle Teller that came to the door In an swer. It took Just two hours to straighten out the tangle of that sable muff, and then followed another. Brother Ben, the rising young lawyer, didn't have anything to say about this latter tan gle for several months, and then it j was In a very serious tone that he said: J "Mother, didn't I say that unless this cage was handled right there i would be serious complications?" "Mercy on me, but what's hap pened?" "The hero and heroine are engaged to be married! Eoth admit their guilt!

According to the most iimtioiit formu la extant it was coii'x-t(d in the fol lowing mitnner: "Take clean wheat and bray it iu a mortar, that the hulls be all gone off, and seethe it till it burst, and take it up and let it cool: and take clean fresh broth nnd sweet milk of almonds or sweet milk of kine and temper it all; and take the yolks of eggs. Boil it a little nnd set it down and mess it forth with fat venison or fiesh mutton." Venison whs seldom served without this accompaniment, but frumenty, sweetened with sugar, was a favorite dish of itself, the 'clean broth" being omitted when a lord was to be the pur taker, i "Mutton pies" was the name given to the mince pie as early as 1."!)H. They were also known as shred and Christ mas pies. London Answers.

There are several reasons why this fodder ought to be generally extensively used by North ern farmers. Considered from any standpoint it Is a protable hay crop. It can be de pended upon to net the producer fully 50 per cent, more profit than either timothy and red closer, whether dis posed of in the market or fed out to live stock on the place. As there is a cutting of alfalfa about the first of June in Northern states the crop is of most importance in keeping up milk contracts. In the dry season the pastures give out or at least run down seriously during July while in August they may be practically bare. The early cuttings of alfaJfa is rea sonably sure to be a heavy crop. Usually it is the best of the season. The yield may be depended upon to exceed that of any other fodder on an equal acreage. Then it is three weeks or a month earlier than timothy or red clover. It comes in the right time to augment METHOD OF CLEANING A POULTRY HOUSE Floor and Walls Should Be Brushed and Cleaned Drop pings Are Valuable. Lime wash made from stone lime Is the best purifier. Make the wash as follows: Stone lump lime, ten pounds; boiling water, two gallons, and carbolic acid, one ounce. Put lime in bucket, pour on the boiling water, cover with cloth and allow it to stand for one hour. The mixture must be well stirred to prevent scorching. If there is not enough water not all the lime will be slaked well. On the other hand, too much water retards the slaking by lowering the heat. Add enough boiling water to make the wash Just thick enough to spread well. Mix one ounce of carbolic acid in each bucket of wash. Carbolic acid is poisonous and must be handled with care. If the roosting poles and nest boxes are movable take them out of the house. Brush down the walls, clean the floor; then apply the wash, which should be put on hot. Take time to get the wash Into the cracks. The roosts and nest boxes should bo brushed over with coal oil and then given a thick coat of the hot waeh. The floor should be well coat ed with fresh alr-slaked lime. If the .nrV ta n-pll rlon the lice will be killed, the house disinfected and the appeal Hurt! Illlll.ll HIUJIU'.U. vtwc a bright day for this work. Clean up the droppings every morn ing: put In barrels between layers of rich sifted earth, spread one or two handfuls of plaster over each layer of manure; the plaster will prevent loss of ammonia. Keep the barrels of manure under cover outside of the house. The drop pings of 50 hens fed on mixed grain, meat, ground bone, wheat bran, corn chops and a little linseed meal prop erly composted and kept dry, will make the best kind of a fertilizer enough in six feeding months for a half-acre garden. MAKING SUCCESS IN MAPLE SUGAR Owner of Up-to-Date Plant Takes Care to Have Every thing in Readiness Early. (By BESSIE U PUTNAM.) t The product Is one of the most wholesome of sweets and If there is a surplus It can be readily disposed of at good prices. Brand your name on the cans and work up a trade for the prime article. This done, customers become regular customers. Nev.r hp tempted to sell old syrup for new.

If it can be spared from the farm and is sent to market a good cash re turn is obtained and it is well to note that it is one of the first large items of the crop season. It comes in considerably ahead of grain and the revenue' may do away with the necessity of borrowing money for carrying on the heavy operations of the farming season. Usually the dairy farmer will prefpr to have the alfalfa crop consumed on the place because it greatly increases the flow of milk. The cash return is thus likely to be larger than for mar keting the hay and the midsummer and fall cuttings are equally profitable for winter feeding. The crop will average three cuttings each season in this latitude, 'although it is commonly harvested five times in Kansas, Oregon, Washington, and a few other states. In view of the difficulties which Northern farmers have experienced in keeping up their milk supply during the summer months it Is worth while to consider the special value of alfalfa as a dairy fodder. r least fall into the disrepute of having lost your skill in the maple business. The owner of the up-to-date sugar camp takes care to have a good sup ply of wood ready and all his supplies on hand for catching the first run of sap, which Is of the best quality and commands the highest price. The old-fashioned trough is seldom seen these days, costing too much in the manufacture and the waste of time in the use. The pails are also much more sanitary as well as more easily handled. The cheapest grade of tin soon wears out and it is more economical In the end to buy a good grade, painting them on the outside and keeping them dry when na; In use. Syrup cans should never be washed when emptied, as it is almost impos sible to get them entirely dry and the moisture soon induces rust. The lat est and most satisfactory way is to pack them away In a dry closet with the syrup which naturally clings to them undisturbed. When ready to re fill rinse them out with hot water or sap and they will keep sweet and bright for several years. Be careful not to select an evapor ator too large for your camp. If yon have not sap enough to keep It filled the contents will acquire a scorched flavor and lead to a suspicion of pa trons that your product Is being adult erated with cane sugar. A can which has been burnt can never again be depended upon for first class work. (JOLOR OF SOILS TELLS CONDITION Organic Matter When Preser.l in Quantities Makes Land Either Black or Brown. (By JAMES D. MARSHA 1,1 Colorado Agriculture College.) The color of soils ia governed large ly by the amount and kind of Iron compounds and the percentages of or ganic matter nhich they contain. Iron may give fcoiU a red. blue, yel low or gray color, depending largely upon texture, aeraii.m and moisture content Organic tin f ter when pres ent In quantities tends to make soils either black or brown In color. The comblnatloa of colors formed by the iron compounds and organic matter give rise to a great many interm-clate tints. As a rule the dark color of soils is closely associated with the presence of organic matter, while a I'ght color Indicates its absence.
