CARE NEEDED FOR GOSLINGS
Several Excellent Little Hints That
Go to Make Success With Young
Fowls—Keep Them Dry.
Geese require very little feed. After
they are feathered tlicy need no shel
ter. I set five goose eggs under each
hen to hatch them. 1 never put the
eggs under the old geese. Make the
nests on the ground where possible,
writes Sarah Peters of Nashville,
Kan., in the Farmers Mail and Breeze.
About a week after eggs have been
incubated I dip every egg in a pail of
warm water, repeating this at the end
of the second week. Usually we get a
gosling for every egg at the end of the
hatch, which is 28 to 30 days. As soon
as they are dry I take the goslings out
of the nest and when all are hatched
put them In a small, dry pen, with a
large box, the bottom of which is cov
ered with dry earth or sand. They

must havfe grit, preferably crushed
"oyster shells. I feed them corn bread
soaked in sweet milk and give them
sweet milk and water to drink. I put
the milk or water in a rather shallow
dish with a large stone in the middle
of it so the goslings cannot get into it
with their feet. After they are a
week old they may be fed on bran
mixed with milk. I never turn them
out until the dew is off the grass and
always shut them up when a rain
comes up. They like water but can
not stand being left in the rain or

BEAUTIFUL MAID MARY
2 By HARMONY WELLER.
Mary Perkins did not answer the ad
vertisement for a maid out of a spirit
of adventure. On the contrary, she
was in absolute need of employment
in order to make both ends of her
financial life meet. The embroidery
slu' did was not remunerative enough
to pay expenses and Mary had no fur
ther business training.
The young author who had adver
tised had pondered long and deeply
before putting forth his need in the
newspapers, yet there was no alterna
tive. lie must have seme one to look
after his home, and he was old-fash
ioned enough to feel that a woman and
not a man should do it.
When he answered Mary Perkins'
ring at the door bell Everly hoped It
would be an applicant waiting there.
The girl standing outside was slight.
Her hair was r.catlv brushed back and
her eyes looked curiously large
through the thlek-lensed glasses site
wore. Her skin was of a dull, almost
"I have come in answer to your ad
vertisement for a maid," she said, and
Everly opened the door.
His writing den was nearest to the
entrance, and thither ho led Mary Per
"All that is essential for me Is," he
said to her, "that you can keep house:
Intelligently—and quietly." He looked
at the girl in so helpless a way that
Mary was tempted to laugh. "If yon
could manage in half a day 1 would
much prefer your being here only from
ten o'clock until after my dinner in the
middle of the day."
"That will suit ine." Mary replied.
And from the very beginning Mary
took complete possession of Everly's
So excellent was Mary's cooking
that Everly ventured to suggest one
of the dreams of his author's mind.
Always, since the beginning of hi:i
literary career he had wanted to have
editors and publishers dining at his
"That is," thought Everly, "it Js eiisy
if Mary will stay and serve dinner."
He went forthwith to the door and
When she stood beside him, Everly
found his eyes opening a trifle wider
than was usual with them. Mary
seemed so different, so altogether dif
ferent from the girl she had been. It
took him a moment or so to realize
that the thick-lensed glasses had been
discarded that the skin was curiously
fair and the hair wonderfully riotous.
"You called me, sir?" Mary sug
"I called the old Mary. WIsat have
you done to yourself?"
"I grew tired of looking ro plain,"
ehe admitted. "When 1 applied for the
position I was very much in need and
I felt certain you would not engage
me as a maid if—" she broke off with
"I most certainly would not!" said
Everly with conviction. He sighed a

rights as a successful domestic.
"My fingers have not lost their cun
ning with the culinary art just because
I am lees homely than you thought me.
I can serve as good a meal and keep
your house as clean as 1 ever did."
"I am perfectly, well aware of all
these facts," Everly admitted, "but
that does not alter the fact that you
are far too lovely, too altogether beau
tiful to—" he broke off and smiled at
the humor of the situation.
"Too beautiful to what?" asked
"Well—the fact is," admitted Ever
jly, "that it has been the dream of my
life to have a home to which I can in
vite my friends. I wanted, next Sat
urday night, to give a small dinner
party to six men, that is—providing
you would have been willing to ar

"And why may I not? I can stay all

his own sudden emotions and quite un

turned to his typewriter. That move

It was scarcely five minutes before
he heard her soft knock on his study
door. When she came in he laughed
aloud, partly from relief and partly
because of his new emotion.
Mary's skin was dark her heavy
glasses were In place, and her hair
was severely drawn back.
"How many covers shall I arrange

Everly jumped to his feet, took the
glasses from her eyes, dragged tho

their captivity and laughed whimsical*

under which you can preside," Everly
said firmly "either you are here as
my wife or not at all. I would have

Mary whispered softly.

saved discussion by putting the dis
charge in writing. The next day Pat

was passing through the shop, and he

Like the uative Africans, the south
sea islanders are very proud if they
can get hold of a pair of Luropean
shoes. Tliey are especially gratified if
they acquire pair that squeak, or. as
the Africans call them, shoes that: talk.
A story is told of a south sen island

Thoroughly convinced that lie was a
man about town in the most terrific
sense of the phrase, he was wont to
act accordingly. "Yes Jake's joint is
closed," he remarked one night to a
friend from out of town, "but—follow
me! I caji get you in there, all right,
even though it is long after hours.
Just follow me, and don't say a word."
Suitably impressed, the tenderfoot fell
into step. They paused before the
dark, hidden side door of a well known
restaurant. From within came tin
kling of music, popping of corks,
laughter—all the assorted expressions
of night life in a great city. The man
about town, cautioning his friend to
stand back and be very quiet, tupped
on the side door. No answer. Anoth

open. "Say, Jim," whispered the man
about town, "just go and tell Jake to
come here a moment, will you?" Exit

the man about town. The tenderfoot
felt convinced that he was seeing met

Jake, the proprietor, presently appear

Interior of his restaurant and stepped
to the side door. "It's me, Jake. Can
we get in?" asked the man about
town in a hoarse, horrible whisper.
"Sure," answered Jake, "but for the
