cold one is almost indifferent as to how she looks it seems strange to give advice about how a girl should make her toilet And yet spring is bound to come however little such a thought can be realized with the thermometer near zero Even now the shops are showing pretty goods for spring shirt wait suits and so these thoughts about clothes are not de trop after all To get into ones clothes is an art To stay in is a still greater art To become efficient in these arts practice the following Dress slowly Use plenty of safety pins as near the color of the gown as possible let them vary in size When the blouse is adjusted pin down in front at each side of the back and on each side of the front if neces sary Pin the skirt after hooking it firmly to the waist on each side of the back When the belt is put on take time to see that the band of the skirt is covered Pin it if necessary but this is not necessary if the belt is not too tight In putting on the ribbon collar or whatever may be designed for the neck pin the ribbon firmly down in the back with a fancy gold safety pin Pin it again in front and if necessary use the tiny neat little safety pins around on the sides Be sure that the skirt is hooked up the back and that the bodice cannot become unhooked or unbuttoned at the frontIt to take a little more time and to use a few more safety pins and to have each garment stay where it js fastened A Canarys Song By Walter Browne Chirp Chirp Chirp Only the feeble cry of a canary bird is heard in that miserable little attic roomIa The little tufted yellow head can surely hold only tiny and unreasonable thoughts and yet if one could have read aright that plaintive chirp chirp chirp this is the story it had to tell HComecome come to me sweet mistress Oh why have they covered me up How can I sing to you whenthe light of day is hidden by this winding sheet about my cage Naught but the husks Qf seeds are scattered on theunchangec sand The water font is dry I have not seen the sunlight for four long days How can I sing Oh sweet mistress why have you forgotten me Have you forgotten the days when in the proud plumage of my youth I sang my earliest songs to you incited by the invi tation of your prettily pursed l lips How often together we rejoiced you in the fresh glow of girlhood caroling some simple song and I with swelling throat striving to outsing you Ah Those were glorious days Fiom the gladness of our hearts we sang together then What was the song I sang you then Will it not call you bade to me Listen I will try Trill Trrrr11 Joy Jov Joy Sweet Sweetsweet

me light and love once more when after that terrible time of dismal dark ness and thedin of travel which came near terrifying me to death the covering was taken from my cage and we found ourselves in

j g1aSo oteweathe es and flowers but still we sang our songs andI was happy There wasanother voice add ed to our anthems a strong man ly voice whichsangso I thoughtfar too late into the night With my head under my wing it seemed to my tiny mind that the music was marred 1 would often wonder why we left the pleasant porch where first we sang together for the heat and glamor of that effulgent flat But you sweet mistress your plumage was much more beautiful than before and Iwell I liked him because he gave me sugar Together we sang as happily or nearly as happily as ever When he came no longer I strove to cheer you up with my singing did I not Even during those dreary days when your voice was only heard in moans and sobs I knew you missed him much for eyen Idid I not miss the sugar he used to give me When we left the little flat I wonderedwhy we did not go back to the dear old home again But even though each change each removal which followed was more gloomy and dismal than the last I was thankful that you took me with you I still loved to hear your voice althoughno longer you sang with me and I knew that you loved mine When at last we came to this chillroom which the sunshine never smiles upon I sang to you did I not until I saw you laid on your bed night and day and night and day again Then I thought how tired and weary you must be and so I closed my song When the days went by thus I feared that as there was no sunshine you might think it always night and perhaps that was whyyou kept your bed and tossed about and talked so strangely in your sleep I strove to wake you with my songs and then there came strangers who put this cloak around my cage Chirp Chirp Chirp Sweet sweet mistress mine You are laid upon the bed and around you are hyacinths and gardenias and white roses but none of them are whiter than those lips which have so often cheered me into song And Ieven I only a tiny birdI understand that my songs are not needed now for never more can you sweet mistress hear them You are dead How do I know What do I understand of death prowlingImer evening The dog seemed kindly enough so none drove him awayaway But in the morning on the stoop were a few

Gambling On Races Jefferson City Mo Feb 7 Gov Joseph W Folk today forwarded to both houses of the Legislature a special message dealing chiefly with legislation affecting the proposed repeal of the breeders law which licenses bookmakers to sell pools in certain inclosures the fee going to the support of the State Fair Gov Folk urges the amendment of the breeders law so as to eliminate the licening of gamb ling by the State He says Stripped of its useless ver biage this act levies tribute upon gambling upon the results of horse racing in this respect it is indefensible from any moral standpoint If it be argued that men will gamble and that the State might as well profit by their lust for the game it could with equal force be argued that men will kill and therefore the State should license murder in certain forms and in certain places so as to profits by this weakness of mankind This is not the demand ofa frenzied morality but of a sound and healthy public sentiment I recommend that an amount equal to the income now derived from the licensing of pool selling be appropriated for the maintenance of the State Fair d- J What is the finest quality inhuman character Is it not

Capitol buildingI will be erected on what is known as the Hunt property in South Frankfort containing about 35 acres We are not familiar with the location and can only accept the decision as good to the State since the Legislature seemed to discuss every phase of the situa tion from the standpoint of pub lic good Some are inclined to Criticise that body for the time consumed in determining this im portant matter Some of theQ jal papers are making the charge that the good of the State was secondary that the per diemof 5 wasan important feature for extended session We dp not T take this view we have no gronndsiosupwrt such state 9 ment The location of our Cap itol building was not a trivial matter it was not a proposition for hasty action but one of vast mportance to our Capitol city and to the entire State and while that body of Representatives seemed to waste some time yet the difference of honest opinions over the questions at issue neces sarily consumed time The State is to put 100000000 into ai building and the selection ofa site for such a structure not only to serve the present generation but to stand unimpaired for fuj tura generations a place of con venience and pride of our people should be on that particular spot that will best serve the purpose The spending of a few thousand dollars to determine this is not a mistake The News desires to congratulate every member of the Legislature who made a fight for the proper location for such a magnificent State building and trulybelieves that the savingof- the present buildhis rehts and inconveniences arising from their

defeat this year was that the ar men who secured control of the party organization at St Louis sounded re f treat when a charge should have been ordered all along the line He insists that conditions demand radical action and that the people want something definite upon which they can rely The Commoner he announces will carry on a campaign of education advocating Iitariff reform the overthrow of private monopolies labor legislation municipal ownership of public utilities public ownership of railroads and telegraph systems an income tax the election of federal judges by the people the election of the United States Senators by popular vote direct legislation and the selection of postmasters by the people whom they are to serve It will be necessary to regain contro of the party organization To do this the friends of reform throughout the entirecountry must work together A damocratic paper of national scope offers the best means for carrying on this work and the Commoner occupies this field The campaign of education and organization which Mr Bryan an nounces will be carried on through The Commoner will not only be interesting and instructive but every democrat and independent thinker should receive The Commoner regularly so as to keep in touch with the progress the reform forces are making and to fortify him self with facts and arguments to con vince his republican neighbor that the democratic party offers the surest re lief from class legislation and trust dominationThe rate which Mr Bryan has quoted us on his paper enables us to send you The Commoner and Adair

Supreme Court of Vermont Will Pass Upon Her Case Windsor Vt Feb 3A few hours after receiving the last rites of the Catholic church and hearing her fa ther confessor read the prayers for the dying Mrs Mabel Rogers who was sentenced to die upon the gal lows listened with amazement to the announcement of High Sheriff Henry H Peck that Gov Charles J Bell had granted her a reprieve of four months The news from Montpelier that the governor had consented to defer the execution of Mrs Rogers came as a surprise not only to the condemned woman but also to the prison officials as it had been generally accepted that the governor would refuse to inter ferePreparations for the execution had been perfected The gallows had been erected in the west wing of the prison a heavy black curtain hanging from the guard room windows shutting the gruesome machinery of death from public view Mrs Rogers was granted a reprieve so that her claim to not having had a fair trial might be passed upon by the supreme court Sheriff Peck carried the news of the reprieve to the prisoner Writing a Letter To Mother Mrs Rogers was seated at a table writing a letter to her mother Ap parently supposing that the sheriff had come to read the death warrant she arose and moved toward the door Sheriff Peck had never seen Mrs Rogers before that moment Walk ing up to her he said Mrs Rogers I am the sheriff I have brought you good news SherIgratingIgranted you a reprieve until June 2 replied the sheriff Mrs Rogers remained like a statue as though unable to comprehend the meaning of the words Without a sign of emotion she gazed at the sheriff a moment and then said- I had given up all hope but I am glad that the governor has granted me more time He is a good man Mrs Rogers then thanked the sheriff for the information he brought her She seemed unaffected by the tidings and returned to the table and resumed writingStory of the Crime The crime for which Mrs Rogers was sentenced to death was the murder of her husband Marcus Rogers on August 12 1902 at the Renning ton He held a life insurance policy for 500 Mrs Rogers Leon Perham and Estella Bates were taken into cus tody Perham confessed According to his story he and Miss Bates went by prearrangement to the place where Rogers was to meet his wife to effect a reconciliation after separation Aft er a pretended reconciliation she drew front her dress a piece of rope and told her husband that she would show him a new game Tying his hands behind his back she had him lie down Then she took a bottle of chloroform from her pocket and saturating her handkerchief covered his nose and mouth As the dying man struggled to get away Perham seated himself upon Rogerss feet Mrs Rogers threw the body into the river Mrs Rogers was convicted of mur der in the first degree and sentenced to death Leon Perham was found guilty of murder in the second degree and sentenced to imprisonment for life while the case against Estella Bates was nolle pressed

for him but that he must not come back to Kentucky without a requisition But Mr French told me the statement continues that Gov Beckham had promised him French that this requisition would not be is

State Buffalo N YTo arrange for the building of a government camp at Tona wanda where he willstudy out the best methods of destroying wasps next summer Henry T Van Oukon of the United States bureau of agriculture has arrived i n Buffalo He will visit the site of the camp which is located in the heart of Tonawandas fruit belt During the past 15 years Van Oukon has studied the destructive work done by wasps in Europe and America IToting it mildly he said the other night at the Lafayette uIn the fruit sections of the country they have done far morelharm than the giysp moths Net only do the yellow jackets sting the fruittbut evenually kill any trees in they erect a habitation A conservative estimate 1f the damage done by wasps in California last year is something over practhallyAmong the heaviest losers from the depreciations of wasps are the farmers of upper New York state and Ohio For some reason the country about Buffalo and a tliveof this I have decided to spend my time next summer in determining a practical method of exterminating wasps I have already discovered one scheme which may prove to be very effective This is a w p lighthichthe wasps nest at night According to the reports of several prominent Massachusetts agriculturists these peculiar colored rays kill the insects instantly Because of the power I can derive from the magnificent plants at the falls I will have a good chance to try the rays on Tonawanda wasps This was the reason selected the place for the location of he camp Wasps and hornets are common to the whole world I have seen them dusting about on the shores of Lake Tchad angrydronenlike the bees who are an honest hardworking lot the wasps are sneaky and destructive When stinging fruit a t crawlingbout S t poisonoustingmanage to kill these

company The bricks that will be manufactured are known as sand bricks or sandlime bricks They were first made in Ger many about 15 years ago but it took some years to perfect the process so that good bricks could be made at moderate cost There are now it is said more than 200 German factories engaged iri the production of these bricks and the an nual output last year is given as 350 000000 bricks A Canadian named Leet invented ma chinery a short time age by which it is said bricks much superior to the Ger man bricks are produced Manufac urers of bricks by this process claim for them that they

Xarket Buffalo N YAfarm of 20 acres near Niagara gorge has been purchased by Perry R Hunt of NewYorkcity who declares his intention to establish a rattlesnake ranch and raise the reptiles for the New York restaurant market Mr Hunt said that there was a growing de mand in New York restaurants for the flesh of the rattlesnake- It has been served in a few places for- some two years he said and the increasing demand justifies me in making this venture Naturally the supply is limited and the prices are high and for a time at least I hope to make some money My plan is to entice as many of the snakes as possible from their hiding places by decoys of live rabbits These shall confine in pens and reserving some of the finer specimens will fatten the remainder and breed as fast as pos sible I will feed them on rabbits most y although the menu will be varied by hopetothe first year and I will begins operations as soon as the rattlesnakes make their appearance in the spring The locality of the farm is ideal for- tsi purposes From time immemorial the vicinity of the Niagara gorge and whirlpool has been the haunt of the North American rattlesnake the largest of its kind The guides point out a rattlesnake cove a rattlesnake dell and he famous Devils Hole and Fosters have long been avoided by local visitors and tourists as they are in fested with great numbers of these creaturesIn gorge the loose rocky forma tions and the large areas inaccessible to any but the most adventurous and intrepid geological and botanical ex plorers are peculiarly suitable to the habits of this snake The rattlesnakes are good navigators and cross and recross the river near its wildest rapids Mr Hunt says the flesh of a rattlesnake is not unlike that of a roast suck ling pig white and exceedingly pala table REVIVE MYSTERY PLAYS Benedictine Monks Reproduce Bible Stories at Famous monastery- in Germany BerlinAn interesting attempt has been made at the famous Benedictine monastery of the MariaLaach to re vive the medieval mystery plays The magnificent church was crowded with sightseers The altar was screened by a thick curtain which was drawn when the abbot and confraternity took their seats in the choir Thereupon a host of angels all lad in white appeared among them being the Archangel Michael and Lucifer Suddenly the altar was illuminated and the manger at Bethlehem was disclosed Michael and the good angels kneel in adoration but Lucifer turns his back in contempt Ash does so his white robe falls to the ground and he is revealed in all his blackness He is then driven away and Michael takes Lucifers white robe and presents it before the altar The second scene represented the temptation of Adam by the serpent Lu sifer appears again bearing the serpent all decked with flowers which fall from his scaly length While this scene is be ing enacted before the altar the choir sings words in Latin illustrating the pro ceedings A procession was then formed and the vast congregation sank on its knees as the abbot and his monks carried an elaborately decorated image of the virgin to the altar The abbots ben ediction closed this singular revival of a medieval custom which is said to have had a profoundly emotional influence on those who witnessed it NEW DELICACY FOR TABLE Hybrid Buffalo the Latest Thing in EnglandCompromise Between Bison and Beef LondonThe latest delicacy to tempt the appetites of British epicures is a compromise between buffalo meat and beef A couple of twoyearold bullocks the result of cross breeding between a North American bison and Highland cattle were sold at Newcastle cattle market the other day They had been bred by Mr Leyland of Haggerston castle Northumberland who has been engaged for several years in experi menting in this direction The animas were exactly like their North American cousins in appear ance except that they were stronger and thicker in the hindquarters They had been reared and fed as wild cattle so great difficulty was experienced in conveying them to market Although they were accommodated in special boxes their fury was so great that one broke its neck on the journey and the other had obe- shot in the market The beef it is said will be found of a richer quality than that obtained from a buffalo and if kept for a month or so more palatable than that of an J ordinarybullock Troops Fired on
