assured the citizens ot this place are anxious to have the HendeSon Route take up the spur and run the main line through the town It is believed that the railroad com pany and the town could agree

recognized that the cOils 1 liver contains curative values for coughs colds bronchitis consumption and all wasting diseases unequaled in medicine but unfortunately few could take and derive nay

insurance situation says ti- 1developed e arc amazed to learn upon good authority that there have two phases of the insurance situation which seriously reflect upon the hard sense of a good many presumabl3 intelligent Americans 1 even thousands ure permitting their policies to lapse This is so stupid as to be from the standpoint of pure selfinterest almost criminal There is no question and has been and can be no question of the solvency of the companies Enough has developed to prove beyond the shadow of doubt that the total of moneys wasted and not earned that might have been earned is a bagatelle in propor tion to the enormous assets Every dollar of insurance outstanding is good as gold whether a new policy over be written or not It is the uttermost folly therefore for any one to sacrifice the slightest portion of what he has paid in To continue the payment of premiums and demand and reform is the only sane policy Thousands of policyholders are sending their proxies to Thomas W Lawson They would better send them to the devil himself If the wit of man were exercised to find a way to wreckif possible a solvent concern none more effective than this could be devised No rightthinking can condone proven offences but such a jump as this would be from the fryingpan not into the fire but into the bottomless pit That sane beings to any number likely to prove adequate to his purpose should intrust their property and the future sustenance of their beneficiaries to a professionally unscrupulous speculator seems in credible And yet the danger is said to be real and imminent We and believe it is magnified by unwarranted boastfulness on the one hand and by distorted imagination on the other But the interests involved are so vast and so widespread that no patriotic citizen should spare any effort to save credulous thousands from the in evitable consequences of their own rash action If it be possibly true that insurance officials have become eo discredited as to be impotent in withstanding the force of a wave of insanity it is high time for the formation of a National Vigilance Committee in the interest of the whole people RATE dGnrnox PERILOUS There is a grave danger that iif action is not taken by Congress to settle this transportation question it may become a issue This subject is one of the greatest business problems that our country has ever been called upon to determine and it should not be permitt to become a political issue to be determined by partisan interest in stead of intelligent reason These words of warning were spoken by Mr Nelson W McLeod president of the Federal Rate Regulation in the course of an address on governmental rate making delivered at a meeting of the Yellow Piners a prominent lumbermens club of St Louis Mo Monday evening Nov 20 Mr McLeod showed that the rebate and prefer ence evils being related to the administration of the rate rather than the fixingof it have no connection whatever with the source from which the rate emanates He contended that however sincere the advocates of government rate making might be in their intent that the power proposed to be delegated is not to be used to name the rates in gener al but that it is to confined to incidental cases based on formal com plaint the practice would necessarily be exactly contrary to that assertion of intent and that the conflicting claims of contending interests could only be satisfied through a political commissionby the establistment ofn distance tariff In concluding Mr McLeod said If those who advocate placing in the hands o political bodythe the power to name rates are successful in their efforts and are in er ror as to the result in practice commercial disaster may result and while it may cause some men of wealth to become poorcapital as a class will only be affected indegree in the amount of their capital but will not be compelled to make personal sacrifice Commercial disasterhowever to labor and the man of limited means is a calamity touching the home life in sacrifice and possible want On the other hand if those of uswho oppose placing the power to name rates in the hands of a body are in our opposition but are error as to what wojuld occur if the law we oppose were Jllsedcom mercial disaster would not result as the conservative policy would safeguard continued prosperous condition It is truea complainant might have to go before a court to obtain adequate remedy but to cure this slight delay does not in my opinion justify placing in jeopardy the material welfare of our country by engaging in untried experiments Fine Overcoats sold at 1250 now 950 Fine Overcoats sold at 10 now 850 Fine Suits sold at 1050 now at 750 Boys Overcoats from OOc up Remember we handle all kinds of produce Come

beauty of old plantation melodies until the English capital is fairly ring tug with the sound of her praises This fortunate young woman i Miss Clara Alexander of Memphis Tenn and as pretty and attractive girl as ever crossed the water to Ol England She Is Just now anticipat ing her appearance before the King and Queen of England and when this is accomplished she will indeed feel that her success Is complete A little more than a year ago some Interested friend of Miss Alexander sent her on her journey to London armed with letters to prominent mem bers of the social world there One of these was to the famous Mrs John Mackay who became her social spon sor and practically made the clever little girl from Tennessee the toast of London drawingrooms Miss Alexander has never been on the stage but from her old mammy In the south and a score of servants who had once been in her family she learned the real plantation molodles learned to sing them as only a girl who spent her early life in the real south could sing them She learned to imitate the old darky In all his quaint characteristics and her triumph was declared complete when she moved a fashionable audience to tears by her touching recital of a little negro poem W S Gilbert author of Pinafore advised her strongly to go in for emotional acting and Lady Bancroft one of the shining lights of the London social world and herself a talented actress offered to coach the young American girl Iin tho role of Juliet 1C she would for the stage Lady Ludlow recently lent her epjehdld mansion in Portland Place Sfor a recital by this talented American girl for which the social world of London cheerfully paid 5 a ticket Her services are constantly in demand and with Mrs Mackay and other In fluential women to sand sponsor for her this little girl from Tennessee jsI adding fresh laurels to her crown And now she is to appear before the King and Queen The command which has been pent to Miss Alex ander is the same as that which goeS to every artist whom King Edward and Queen Alexandra wish to hear It is in reality nn Invitation but is called a command for the reason that an invitation from the King or Queen brooks no declination and is therefore in a sense obligatory Miss Alexander breathes the life of the south in all her work and no amount of persuasion will induce her to give it up for a stage career She is taking into London drawing rooms and even into the presence of Ills Majesty King Edward VII an atmos phere of love freedom and the pretty instincts which make of the southern girl another type of the American beauty which is ever a puzzle and yet a veritable Joy English friends across the tOJur IT PAYS TO DRESS IX STYLE Stirring Adventure ofthe Hon Augus tus Browne in Cleveland Ohio Things went very hard the other day with the Hon Augustus Browne of Cleveland Culo As Mr Browne stepped oft a street car during the busiest hour of the day and at one of the most crowded localities In Cleve land his wellmade trousers caught on the lower stop It seems that some of the iron work was loose Simul taneously the conductor started the car and the lIon Augustus Browne at once sat down upon the Belgian blocks In a shocking manner Moreover the lIon Augustus kept right along with the vehicle towed by the left leg of his expensive trous unuss and made It worse was the fact that the disd Browne expostulated against the treat ment he was receiving though of course in a perfectly dignified way MISS CLARA ALEXANDER study but the conductor was Inside collect- Ing fares and did not hear aim At last Mr Brownes suspenders gave way with a mighty snap and their owner was left sitting In the street with the car vanishing into the distance and the trousers flying wildly from the lower step Naturally the Hon Augustus Browne couldnt sit there In the middle of the street indefinitely Already he had narrowly escaped a garbage cart and two shorthaired ladles on bicycles So he arose and took a look around Excepting the loss of a pair of beautifullycreased trousers and a large assortment of abrasions which would perhaps cause him to take his meals at the mantelpiece for a week or so Mr Browne was in pretty fair shape He wore a very shiny silk hat a perfectlycut frock coat patent lea ther shoes a boutonnelre the finest garters in the market and a suit of union underwear fit for the most limpid and illustrious legs in any land It is undoubtedly n sad thing to be di vested of ones trousers in broad day light but it was ventured by an eye witness that there ought to be a whole lot in a silk hat frock coat boutonniere patent leather shoes and unproved garters The frock coat must have concealed any ravages caused by the gentlemans rapid transit over the Belgian blocks in a sitting posture and otherwise On the whole it Is n question In Cleveland whether Mr Browne should attempt to collect excessive damages from Hon Thomas Johnson the innocent owner of the car line Japans Grand Old Man Marquis Ito who was recently stoned by a Japanese mob is of com paratively humble birth His father Juzo Ito was a rustic gardener Marquis Ito first went to Europe stow ing himself away in a bale of silk on board a ship bound for Liverpool He was concealed in this bale for 36 hours until he was discovered by one of the ships officers The reason for his leaving Japan was that he desired to escape the vengeance of tho Conservative party of that country which resented his more advanced views and attempts to adopt Western manners and customs In Japan He Is now said to be the most Western Japanese In the Occident and spends probably five hours a day reading European newspapers and magazines Yet with all he Is said to be the poorest Prime Minister in this worlds goods either actual or retired in the world CHINAS ARMY OF 40000 FOREIGN ATTACHES WITNESSED RECENT FIELD MANOEUVERS AMAZED AT RESULTS Japanese Training Apparent in Su bordination and Discipline Mauser Rifles Used but Cavalry Service Is InferiorEvidence that China is shedding her skin of conservatism and Is preparing to take her place with other Oriental nations Is evidenced by her first regu lar army inanoeuvers Just ended at Shangtung A number of diplomatic attaches representing the military of the principal nations of the world were present as guests of the viceroy Yuan Shi KaI by whom they were lavishly entertained To those who remember the condition of Chinese troops live years ago this feat of raising an army of forty thousand men to its present efficiency is marvelous There were some unfavorable criticisms to be sure but all gave un stinted praise for the complete control of the troops and their steadiness of discipline the latter liming compari son with that of European veterans Armed With Modern Equipment The scheme of the manoeuvers was the assumed invasion of CLlei by a southern force from Shantung whose advance was opposed by the northern army The Infantry were armed with Mauser magazine rifles with short dagger bayonets Officers carried sword revolver and field glass The privates kit weighed fiftyfour pounds knapsacks being of Japanese pattern The pioneers carried picks shovels and saws The cavalry were mounted on small Mongolian horses and carried Mauser carbines sabres and revolvers This Is regarded by the mllltary observers as being the weakest branch of the armyThere were no tonitoms no stink pots fire works gods on poles or hid tons masks In which the Chinese soldier of the past placed his whole re liance Hand of Japan Discovered This wonderful transformation in a few years from an unorganized mob of fanatics to a well equipped Intel ligent army of defense is said to be due largely to Japanese Influences One attache remarked that he had no ticed at least twenty Japanese officers among the troops Many of the can non are of Japanese type and the knapsacks are Japanese in design The line hand of Japan is seen at every turn The artillery consisted of field guns of various types and Japanese moup tain guns carried on mule back The guns were served excellently and this branch of the army appeared to be signalingEach regimental commissariat included thirtytwo wagons German In pattern but poorly constructed The rations consisted of rice 1 12 pounds cabbage 6 ounces salted vegetables 0 ounces and meat U ounces carried in Japanese haversacks All things considered the progress of China in her military organization appears to be wonderful With a few more years of effort aided by Japa nese influence with her inexhaustible natural resources and her multitude of men to draw upon for raw material China will be a formidable enemy and a powerful ally in the development of the East Texas SulphurDeposits Texas a State which claimed the at tentlon of the whole country as a cattle State and as a petroleum State will probably soon become remarkable as a sulphur State In the transPecos country in El Paso county north of the Texas Pacific Railroad geologists compute that there are ten million tons of 40 per cent native sulphur ore avail able and almost in sight Tho sulphur area which has been explored and sur veyed covers about ten thousand acres and tho deposit has an average thick ness of nine and onehalf feet It has been recently reported that this sul phur field has been bought by Illinois capitalists who have associated with them in the enterprise a number of European capitalists At present no railroad is near tho deposits the near est station being Toyah twenty miles to the northwest The intervening country presents no obstacles in the way of railroad construction the grades being low It is calculated that the United States annually consumes 500000 tons of sul phur Much of tho sulphur used in the United States is imported from Italy the tonnage brought In from that country varying from 100000 to 250000 tons a year The American State which leads in the production of sulphur is Louisiana but a vast amount of sul phur is obtained from the pyrites mines in Louisa county Virginia It Is said that the visible supply of sul phur Is sufficient for the requirements of trade for the next twenty years The sulphur trade of the world Is practically monopolized by the Anglo Sicil ian Sulphur Company Limited of Lon eAn Enfeebled Giant It looks as if Europe had another sick man on its hands the

did which atif Je time of Charles V was the VilIiJS foremost military power A NEW EASTER LILY Crossing the Bermuda Flower with a Philippine Species Is Successful If the expectations of the Department of Agriculture are realized with experiments now going on the price of Easter Lilies will be much lower next year This will enable persons who have been obliged to deny themselves time luxury of an Easter Lily to purchase this beautiful flower with out laying themselves open to the charge tof being extravagant TI high price of this spring flower Is caused through the long growing season of the bulb before it bursts In to bloom From the time the bulbI of the Bermuda lily is planted untill it ds in full bloom is a period of five to seven mouths Florists usually plant the bulbs in September In order that they may be ready for the com- Ing Easter They have always beerI studying the flower with a hope of shortening tho time of growing for in greenhouses time and space are at a premium and any shortening there of represents a decided gain The Bureau of Plant Industry of the Department of Agriculture earl last year took up this problem an Imported from the Philippines a 111 rcscmblug the common Easter lily 1 size and color though It bears usuall only one but at times two flowers t the plant Its chief virtue however lies in the fact that Its wowing sea son is but two to thUee months This lily the department has crossed with the common Easter lily and tho re stilt has been a hybrid bearing as many flowers as the old Bermuda lily with no difference in appearance fromI this plant except that the hybrid will develop in four or live mouths rep I AS THE NEW APPEARS resenting a shortening In time of from one to three months While the experiments of the Department are not yet the results attain ed so far warrant the belief that the new hybrid Easter Lily can be produced vastly cheaper than tho old variety Starting in Earls One year the gardener told me the rose bugs threatened to work destruction among my choice roses So I hit upon the IIdea of hiring my two to pick them off and de stroy them ten cents a hundred bugs This worked beautifully for a short time until suddenly

OIDce and also by the Public Lands Commission as Is shown by the following printed report Timber Lieu Lands One of the most detrimental or the land laws has been what was known as the lieu land selection law which provided that where rorest reserves are created by the government set tiers or private corporations owning lands within such boundaries might select In lieu thereof any public land not reserved and this right was trans ferable The result was that parties sold their lieu land rights and these were purchased by giant timber syn dicates and lumber corporations for speculative purposes The title to hundreds of thousands of acres of land embraced within time forest re serves naturally almost bare of forest cover or whluh had been stripped of their tinker and left worth perhaps a dollar an acre were thus purchased by corporations and exchanged on an even basis for the vilest government timber lands of the northwest Sev eral bills were Introduced to amend this law but Anally after much con troversy the entire act was repealed greatly to the dismay of the timber grabbers and this mode of robbing the government stopped A bill was also Introduced repealing the timber

Castaway on the coast of Maine and his son Scat lived with him Old Enoch was a grizzled veteran of over seventy years a relic of tho civil war In which he land done good service as n pilot In the fleets of Du pont and Porter but was now badly crippled by rheumatism and the re suits of his fifty years exposure to the wind and weather In all quarters of the globe lie had long been a widower and the only ono left of his numerous children was this son christened Samuel Carter now twentytwo years of age and as long and lank and homely as could be found on the en tire coast Because Samuel Carter had a kind of feline expression and from his earliest babyhood could climb like a cat anything from the old liberty pole on shore to the mast of a vessel at sea when the winds were blowing great guns mid because he had n habit of making n sort of pur ring sound when about to speak the children had first nicknamed him Pussy and then someone said Scat and Sent It was thenceforth Old Enoch was the captain of one of the many pleasure boats and now the most sought for when the sum mer boarders wanted n man In whoso knowledge of seamanship they had the most implicit confidence and whose prophecies of the winds and all possible storms were so much nitre to he relied upon than Old Improha bilities as they called the Weather Bureau at Washington If the party was to be large and the trip was to be to one of tho many Islands and In eluded a clambake and chowder din nor Scat generally accompanied his father and many stories were told of his great strength and remarkable agility nnd Jokes were made at the size of his Immense feet It was said his shoes were rondo on a special last nnd he always Insisted on having the soles filled with great brassheaded nails Castaway was In those days and i may ho yet the home of many sa 1 loons and drinking places anti the SCAT AS HE LOOKED street bordering on the wharves was lined with them wnerc Jack when ashore was wont to leave not only all his hardearned dollars but his manli ness and happy disposition nnd to be transformed Into a fighting and quar relsome brute Late on an afternoon ns Captain Gray nnd Scat were nearing their landing place with a party of young people Captain Dick Hnrdaker full of bad gin and worse temper staggered down to the wharf and with deepmuttered curses watched them ns they prepared to disembark Years before Captain Dick had been one of the towns besttrusted sailing mas ters and mostrespected representa tatlves but on an unfortunate voyage had run his ship on the rocks and lost crew and cargo In spite of his personal bravery nnd proof that the accident was unavoidable nnd through no fault of his the Scotch verdict of not proven nad been given and he had failed to get another ship This and the mishap Itself had soured his disposition and changed him from a bluffhearty sail or Into a drunken quarrelsome loafer He was a man of powerful frame standing pix feet two Inches In his stocking feet nnd was given a wide todrth by all his quondam friends and shipmates especially when as was most generally the case ho was under the Influence of bad liquor The two captains had been old friends and had weathered many a gate together but now seldom spoke That morning Captain Dick had met the pleasure party and offered his boat and services but his habits wore well known and his bloodshot eyes bore proof only too plainly of the last nights potations which the many morning drams had failed to rectify When ten minutes later the party engaged old Enoch and one of the boys flip pantly remarked No Scotch verdict or bad whiskey for us Captain Dick turned away with an angry oath and muttered that ho would take his re yenge later- After the boat was tied up and Enoch and his son were leaving the wharf preceded by his party Cap tain Dick strode over planted himself directly In front of the old man and calling him a vile name added + Dont you know I always want to fkill snakes and sneaks whenever I meet them Captain Enochs eyes flashed for he himself had been n fa mows fighter In his day and no man had ever doubted Ins courage but he answered quietly Tut tut Captain Dick were too old friends to quarrel about nothing and anyway you know my fighting days are over Yes damn you didnt I say you were a sneaking old hypocrite and onlyI fit to sail a lot of dudes and school girls Well Im going to slap that grizzled old face of yours and then per haps youll get up spunk enough to strike back so I can have an excuse to throw you overboard Cries of shame shame were heard from the loungers near for everyone loved Cap tain Enoch and were beginning to hate Captain Dick and two of the bright college boys that composed the late sailing party hastened back to do what they could to prevent the threat from being put Into execution Suddenly n sort of purring sound was heard behind them as Scats long body pushed them aside and in his slow hesitating almost girlliko voice he said Captain Dick dont v THE APPARITIONoyou strike my father Captain Dick stared In stupid amazement Why you young fool clear out of my way Ive half n mind to double you up and drop you overboard before I do the old man get out of my way ho thundered Tlie pupils of Scats eyes nar rowed as do those or his feline prototype when cornered by souse big dog but ho stood still seemingly un cornered and looking nn ungainly nnd awkward as If at a school examina tlon The captain started towards him with his arm raised and his powerful fist clenched and old Enoch hastily grabbed a club that lay on tho wharf But Scat said softly Never mind PapJust you watch me Stepping rapidly backward ns the captain continued to advance he deftly calculated the distance and as quick as lightning threw a handspring Instead of landing on his feet he shot out those immense hob nailed shoes with fearful force landing thorn both full In the captains face cutting It to the bone in a dozen places Captain Dick dropped as if hit by a cannon ball without even a groan A week later when he slowly dragged himself from his bed and got the first view of hits swollen eyes his broken nose and his generally cut up and distorted features lie mut tered What a whale of a squall must have struck us Then opened his cabin door walked out and the good people of the village saw him no more They Worked the Fraternity The Grand Regent of the Royal Ar canum of the District of Columbia tells a story on himself how after patiently urging persuading and nagging he managed to get a fellow acquaint ance to Join his order This know mem g hersay Mr Smith after joining was at first delinquent In paying his dues and the great mogul of the fraternity had much trouble In getting him to pay up After a time much to his surprise 1 Mr Smith sent his money In promptly j on the day It was due then he sent in his money two months In advance A short time after Mrs Smith came into the Grand Regents place of business and said Wont you please como around to see Mr Smith he is very III Of course the kindhearted Regent went He found Smith very ill indeed so sick that the physician had told him his time on earth was limited and Smith took occasion to thank the Re gent for getting him to join the order so that bo might not pass away leaving his family unprovided for Smith died His widow then besccched tho Regent to try to get her some work to do so that she might support her family The Grand Regent was again obliging and by hard work and an un limited amount of red tape got her through the civil service examination i and she obtained a position In one of the Government Departments Just before receiving her notice to go to work 1 about six months after her husbands t demise she appeared again at the Grand Regents office and said I want to thank you for what you have done for me I have Just received my appointment but I dont think I will take tho place I have j something better I want to ask one more favor wont you please recom mend this partys admission to your order Well now Mrs Smith said the Regent that is something I cant do applicantOh assure you she replied lies my husband e There is

A SAW STORM An Interesting Account of n Winter Spent In the Wilds of Idaho Eastern people said the old miner as he deftly caught a live coal from the wood fire around which we had gathered after our days hunt In the Maine woods and thrust It in the bowl of his pipe have but little idea of the henry snow falls of the Rockies and the Sierras or what damage Is often caused from the accumulated weight- I remember well he added hearing my father tell how In York Stuto buck In the thirties that the full was once so great that tho men were com polled to organize relief parties to dig away the big drifts from many of the houses and that when driving along the streets one could almost look from tho level Into the second story window But as I passed the first twenty years of my life In that town mad witnessed nothing more remarkable than drifts over the top rails of fences and tho temporary blocking of the scarcelytraveled back roads I conclude those stories must have gained ftouiowiint from tho lapse of years lIe smoked rapidly nnd quietly for a moment perhaps to gather his thoughts n little and resumed Why the fall was BO excessive and contin uous once In Idaho Territory upon the steep roof of our mill that the largo timber of 12x14 below which the engine had been built was bent almost to breaking We feared our extra weight would surely break It but fortunately the weather changed the warm south wind blew up the canyon nnd the snow below the eaves of the dignndcrhind caused a mlnature snow slide and relieved the strait I believe how ever the timber never regained Its normal position But in the mining town In the Sierras where I wintered in tire early sixties our first snow foil during October and In tho morning lay four feet on the level The storm lasted nbout fortyeight hours nnd we then had beautiful weather for soy ral weeks When time snow had par tially melted the frame of a ten horse wagon from which tlft wagon box bad been removed was found to be crushed to splinters even the spokes of tho wheels being torn nUllt twisted out of all recognition From tho last of November until May se core storms were of very frequent oc currence until by actual measurement the snow lay nearly thirty feet on the level To travel any distance whatever was of course impossible without snow shots and every mans woman and child became more or q of nn expert We used tho Norwegian shoo exclusively for with them the sport la fast and furious Eleven feet long and about four inches broad with a leather band about onethird froin the toe by which the foot iis firmly held by its forward pressure tho toe of the shoe gracefully turned upward wo learned to brag of them and cherish them ns tho rider does his horse ns well wo might for without them wo were helpless Tho bottom of tho shoo is made ns smooth as glass nnd covered nfter each trip with n mixture of tallow nnd bees wax A stout hickory pole chosen with great care about six feet long and with a

cabin some little distance from the main street The huge banks of snow had long since covered it and like many others for several weeks they had crawled in and out of it through thei chimneys This was their first win ter In these mountains and they had been often warned to keep the place below the chimney clear from snow lest the top be covered some night and they be smothered But thy had laughed good naturedly and said they were old backwoodsmen and were not afraid After n storm of unusual severity which hind lusted several days the question was asked In the loafing room of the hotel a big three story building where a half hundred miners made their home if any one had seen or heard of Alf Carlton his brother Jim having snowshoed to an ridjolnlng town the week before No ono had and th

found the chimney hind been too weak to make the ascent and had gradually fallen into his last sleep We judged he hind boon deny for fortyeight hours or more nnd as the storm was raging so fiercely at that time it Is by no means certain thai ho could have been rescued had his condition been known The body was wrapped In blankets and tenderly serried to the hotel and prepared at once for burial The grave was dug near an old pine tree through twentyfour feet of snov and steps had to bo cut to lead down to the ground There was no minister in the camp but one of the women brought out n prayer book

Express and at the physical culture schools where society is now graduating in the art of how to walk In a redingote some very drastic orders are given The practice of sleeping on the back or one side is fatal to the new poise If the woman of fashion would look tall and stately she must sleep face downward with a pillow tightly wedged under her chin in order to avoid suffocation Climate la the

probability his father and his forefathers have lived In for n dozen generations Even where the house Is not owned by the resident the preforentlal right descends from father to son to rent and occupy it It Is a true home Americans are strongly Imbued with the Idea of owning homes houses with accompanying plots of land but as a rule Americans are all too careless at the same time about creating a bit of scenery or making the home such an attractive abode as will cause the traveler to pause a moment and exclam What a pretty little place In the first Instance where his Eng lish cousin or the English landlord erects a stone house at an advanced cost doubtless but more than evened up In a few years by repainting and repairing the American throws togeth to HOME BARS WHICH DWELT UULDlXu er a frame dwelling usually of cheap secondgrowth timber In twenty years the English home Is covered wth ivy and has the appearance of subtantl allty and solidity as though it had always been there and Intended remain- Ing If you mention twenty years hence to the American he will shrugI his shoulders and smile and lie expects to be somewhere In twenty years If he has not bettered his condition and gotten out of it in half that time But twenty years pass more quickly than Is expected and what does the look like then It has had perhaps three coats of paint The Fecond set of shingles Is curling up and needs replacing and the house itself Is onehalf of its value when new Yet It must be agreed that everyman should build a with the Idea of making It his permanent adding to it as his needs grow but continually Improving It and beautifying it If for no other cause than Increasing its selling value he should build well and Improve And this applies to tho surrounding grounds the outbuildings etc fully as much as the home proper What is home without a mother and a good wife and children What Is I add even with these blessings unless It Is a real home a comfortable and a beautiful one Ah there Is a difference and such a wide difference between an abodb or a mere dwelling place and a home Trying to treat this matter from a rsacUcnl standpoint the Department of Agriculture recently Issued an illustrated bulletin r rl beautifying back yards This applied to city and su burban but the Idea Is time same everywhere ENGLISH SUBURBAN STONE And this calls to mind a practical 111I J lustration of what a good thing It Is what a splendid thing to start In growing something In your back yard If you have nothing bigger For have In mind two people a young man and his wife who started their married life In a rented city house with a back yard 18 feet wide anti containing about one fortieth of nn acre They hind lived In the city all their lives and knew nothing of the wonders of plant and animal produc tion But they commenced at once to use their ground They planted radishes and lettuce and flowers anti trained tomatoes against the fence and they set a hen Their fail ures and Interesting experiences dur log the two years they lived thus would fill a volume But the great re sult was that before the end of the year they who had never lived outside their four walls felt terribly confined They longed to get out and have enough land to grow moro things to make genMne garden and to nurture and rear and reap tho things which they ate And so they moved Into tho country hardly tho real country yet but they bought half an acre Just beyond the city out skirts and they built a barn and mov ed into it und lived there the first year while they were building their houseII at once planted a garden j I which seemed to them like a real i farm after their tiny back yard and the first year they all the veg etables they could eat besides over fifty chickens And since then they have gone onI beautifying and embellishing this place until It is now a lovely country resldemV twenty per cent higher in value than It would have been If five years ago they had made It a mere habitation In the first place they employed an architect and built a good house one which with ordinary repairs will stand in good shape fifty years hence They painted It Many long J whiter evvnlngs of the 1rst year j while they lived in the barn were I I I THE THEY MADE AND THE IN THEY WHILE ITnI else place worth house home home would homes a They raised spent In going over architects plans r and adjusting pretty and artistic ef ects to their limited price And If a man is going to build a house why not have It pretty at the same time This house and Its valuable ground cost about 5000 like hundreds of thousands of other homes throughout I A TYPICAL WATER TANK It Surmounts n onvcnknt fooling House time country Yet It is a strikingly handsome place The proof of this is that while It was the first dwelling to be erected In that particular section other houses which have gone up since have largely copied Its rtyle and It is now surrounded by a dozen HoL OUSESII OLD STREET AND 1 some first well IIhandsomei

adjunct furnishing not only an ample moat supply but a considerable ad ditional income from eggs broilers and capons Time fruit trees are be ginning to bear and the berry lushes have long since yielded fresh fruit for the table and jellies and jams for winter The place is constantly Im proving and being Improved The Interior of the house was well finished to commence with Room after room has since been furnished and beautified as means admitted For making this move for adopting this change In their modes of life this couple arc better people they are bet ter citizens they are broader they know more they are happier and they are richer in two senses They mnko more money and they save more They buy less of canned vegetables and meats and they have more to upend la Improving their place and adding to its beauty and desirability They have lately put up a substautla light Iron fence which kept wet painted will last unto the third am fourth generation A COSY FIREPLACE CORNER All said the man if we had only had the advantages when we were young which our children have here there would have been a lot more In life for us And so It Is everywhere It matters little If you live in a brown stone front with the brick pavement directly under your window whether you have n plain or a carved window sill but It does matter whether your front or back yard Is well kept and well fenced and Is prettily decorated with plants and vines and whether If you have more ground it Is a poor un attractive plot or Instead Is a thing of beauty and a joy not only to you but to all who see It How many men you run across who have been awfully busy but are going to fix up their places They seldom get fixed ISofore they get fixed up with the little things a home should have they need fixing in earnestthey are old places If as a people we could become educated to the idea of greater perma nnney In our mode of living of build Ing and improving for our future years or doing something with the

and BcastITwo Farmers Bulletins of the De of agriculture widely dis similar In contents yet treating of subjects which have a closelyconnected relationship are the Feeding of Farm Animals and the Principles of bread Making and both of them have proven so popular that their reprinting has been required several times The feeding of the animals on the farm is n mutter which every farmer is studying more or less closely 110 more successful ones the most closely since It Is a matter of constant experiment and Inquiry to determine just what is the best ration for work meat and dairy animals While each mans experience must be to a great extent his guide there are certain laws the results of wide experiments which af ford much aid to the Intelligent feeder and these are summarized In the bulle tin mentioned Farmers Bulletin 22 What Is known as a balanced ration Is always the thing to be attained Food Is divided Into two general classes fat and heat producing J DELIGHTS known as carbohydrates and muscle and bone producing known as nitrogenous and these two foods should be supplied the animal In the proper pro portion If there Is a preponderance of either the ration Is unbalanc d Both of these bulletins can be ob tamed free through members of con gross or senators or by writing to the Secretary of Agriculture at Wash ingtonCorn for Instance is a food rich In carbohydrates and should bal by a portion of some nitroge nous food such as barley bran cow peas or others of the legumes A perusal of this bulletin will give the reader a very clear understanding of the value of food for animals Food Value of dread The second bulletin on Bread link lag Farmers Bulletin 112 also gees nto the question of what Is a balanced but for human food As corn and corn fodder is a fat protlucing food for animals so corn bread is a onesided diet for man and while ItI fat and energy or fuel for body does not tend to glue him the sumo capacity for endurance that wheat or rye bread does The wheat I berry In Itself comes very near being I n balanced It It Is robbed of I Its gluten which lies next to the skin it is no longer n complete food Potatoes are extremely onesided and should be eaten In connection with some nitrogenous food such as lean meat or beans which however If eaten alone would afford the system too much nitrogen This bulletin which is written by a woman also dis cusses the practical side of bread mnk Ing and can probably be read with I benefit by any housewife Items ofInterest Oscar Hunt of the Carlisle football team Is a millionaire Indian Old
