tory Pub Co All his life Herrick had heard them as every other man may hear If ho stops to listen Tho trouble with Her rick was that he had stopped too often and listened too long Now if one walls until they como too close it Is difficult to distance them again and if on6 listens until they ring too clearly there Is no sound in tho world not even the whisper of a woman that can ev r again quito drown them And the worst of It is that no man can face this Fear that however tho bravest man may turn It Is always from be hind that ho hears the steps which follow as it a coward fled AH men do not hear them only the exceptional may or tho men oxcep tionally situated Herrick happened to bo both Many men have bequeathed to them an inheritance of death but Herrick had also an Inheritance of per feet loneliness Isis people were all nt peace in tho graveyard plots belong ing to the different health resorts of two continents and he had lived alone since a lad in an old house haunted by their portraits and their names on the flyleaf of every book from which be learned life Herrick was not a cow ard but one day he locked up the house and went out through the green old garden At tho gate ho looked crack I was born in you he said to his home and if the girl I love didnt have to over Europe with an in valldmother I would live In you be cause you are pext door to her and make the most of my lime But I wont stay by myselfand maybe Ill never see you again Ho looked away for a moment to the wardefaced college buildings on tho low green hills beyond They had been home too Ho hesitated and a blush rose to his face Then he kissed iris hands to It all with the impulsive gesture of a child and turned his back on his too quiet past In the station by the river he bought a ticket to tho biggest and nolsest city In life native state which was a south ern one We will omit the Intermedi ate stages Enough that In a month bo had been able to fulfill his intention of getting a position on one of tha biggest and noisest papers in that city He reasonably argued that a reporter on night duty with a six hour margin of daylight would not have much time in which to lie awake listening and having an Income be could afford this hypothesis Herrlck was nfter mental excitement and he got It For the first time he was real ly taken out of his own bralnHfo and Into the lives ofothers That was a good result to begin with His an cestors wero the same shortlived set of Idiots and tho footsteps sauntered as cynically as ever on his trail Dut he had not time to consciously listen or to fret over the selfishness of the girls mother who doubtless heard footsteps hunting her down too poor thing or to write minor poetry which is the silliest thing a grownup man with an intellect can do unless ho can sell It Ha had only time for his work and he found out that he was good at IL He also found out that six hours of midday when one slept was worth a night of ten hours to lie awake and listen In and that only crazy pee pIe may safely cultivate their Imagina ions Therefore ho endeavored to confine his attention to his dally work and to let his ancestors alone On tho whole he succeeded Every morning with his brain at its busiest he wrote the pages that went to make up his Saturday letter to tho girl ho loved When that was done be ran down all in a minute It somed Sometimes ho dropped his head on the letter and wept to sleep Oftener he reeled to the tied and fell on It the daylight on his eyelids black night beneath them Ho had not leisure to think of himself at nil Out there was a drawback to this It was good for his mind but It was not always good for his body Some times a trivial nopmlng cough worried at hlrr throat for days and sometimes neuralgia gripped with a clutch not to lie loosened except with redhot whis ky Usually however ho was dead ened to these discomforts His con sciousness was filled with other things thp tearing hurry and devious de vices of his work Its crowds and can dldates and confessions Its murders and its marriages And there were storms of musicthere were civic ban quets there wore noted divines under whom ho catnapped In the galleries of the first churches Dut better than all these were the thousand special and Individual occurrences that took his breath away and rondo his flesh glow with tho discoverers rapture He had lived so among books for his 26 years that he had not known before that things which had never been put Into books ever happened Once while musing under a noted divine he got to thinking over this What stories I could writo1 he cried to himself He sat there staring at the speaker but saw him no more than hoeuw the red and gray Saint John or the blue Mary Mother In tho trgdo ached casement behind the pul pit Ho went to heaven and tasted power and then as usually happens Fate to get oven with him reminded him pt his limitations and through the opetivWlnilaWi behind him he heard the footsteps It was the pause for the long prayer Herrick bent forward I cheek against his arm It was as If bone grazed bone After five minutes ho began to feel that the steps would enter tho church if bo sat there longerso near they weroso loud lie hurried out in tho mlddlo of the prayer It was a winter morning but in that southern city It was like early spring The grass In tho square wast green and a border of white violets had hastened to bloom It was Friday and he gathered a few of them for her Saturday letter He stood for a moment holding them conscious only of the sunshine It deadened him to himself again It filled the city as whim fills a cup with a lifegiving sensestealing potency Dut oven In the sunshine tho cough nagged him Listen It whispered You need a rest said Horrlcks mind to his body or jou wont last even your time Ive been going too fast for you curse you but Ive had such n good time He looked at his arm with disgust I couldnt row a mile with ycu he said I would bo ashamed to go in side any gym with you You would have let that tough knock mo down last night If I hadnt had a pistol along to help you Oh I suppose you do need a rest only you cant have It you know I shant go back home and waltby myself And Im not brute enough to take her back noweven if her mother would kindly die and give mo the chance lie went on through tho sunshine with his violets and climbed to his room wrote his dally letter shutting tho flowers up In tho thin sheets for her Jo dream over A few weeks later Herrick did something ho had not expected to do Ho returned home Ho wrote the girl that It was to get well In his heart ho knew that It was to die Ho had resisted coming back but he did not know what else to do He was dying so fast that ho had not strength enough for a pretense of work among the living He was just In tho way and people when they did not swear at him looked sorry for him It was simplest to get out of the way and away from the people The garden was greener than ever and he had violets his own to put in her letters He Wrote them every day They were mostly lies He desired to keep her away Ho did not wish her to have his dying face to remember He very well knew what it would look like Ho heard the foot steps all the time They advanced steadily Ho could almost name the date of that gray spring morning when they wonld enter his room and that ghastly occupation of his living strug gling body would ensue Warm days he dragged himself to the garden seat and looked lovingly back at his beau tiful homo with the sunshine entering at the wide doors Tho old house tho old pictures the room of books tha Peon garden and the violets underneath the oaksaU these things Herrick devised with a lovers pleasure to the girl ho loved He seemed gathering a handful of flowers to send her and indeed when the trifling legality was concluded it was as if he had done as slight a thing lie smiled as he thought of the stories he had meant to write They seemed to bo so little worth while Ho read Marcus Aurelius as the author best fitted to dwarf the footsteps In many moods he Ignored them or mocked at them but ho always knew that at the end Fear would possess him He did not mind waiting as much as he had supposed that ho would lIe did not know if It were philosophy or If death benumbed Ho bad dono with letters to the girl because his brain served him no longer to invent lies and he found It a relief He tried not to think about her but In May oven a dying man may not forget his love Perhaps Herrlcks sick yearning called her back in telepathic ways but more likely some meddler had written her the truth At all events she came homo to him one day Dut her fresh youth and beauty could not give him back life and she had better have stayed away She only made it harder for him to die a week later As It chanced he died In tho night and alone They would not let her see his dead face She sobbed that she could never forglvo them for that Dut thoso who found him dead probably knew what they were about Source of the Crop The bishop of RIchmond told a good story the other day about his father Ho was a farmer said Dr Pullelne and a nice old gentleman too One year he took it Into his head to grow flax so he sowed the seed and hav ing a good crop sent It away to be mado Into a tablecloth Some time later when seated at dinner he remarked to a lady near him Do you know I grew this tablecloth myself Did you really she answered with the greatest surprise How ever did you manage lIT Wellmost mysteri ouslIf youll promise not to tell anyone Ill tell you I planted a nap kin Hatnllcar

WINTER CARE OF THE PULLETS Comfortable Quarters and Balanced Ration Needed to Get the EggsBy Jamey J Halpln Michigan Vhon the cold nights begin to como it Is time to bring the pullets Into winter quarters They should then begin to show sign of approaching maturity Before bringing thorn in clean the house they are to occupy whitewash it thoroughly and Islnfect tho perches nest boxe etc lto sure that the disinfectant enters every crack nnd crevice Then cover the floor with about four Indies of fine gravel or sand Corerhis lth six inches of dry clean 10ig taw as the pullets will break tip quickly enough Where leaves are plentiful they may be used and matte very sat isfactory litter although they do not last ns long as straw When the house Is ready remove the pullets to It carefully Do not carry them by one leg only or other- wIse misuse them Any ri ugh han dung at this time wit mean a subse quent loss In the eggbasket c tcourso- a change always produces timidity but by exercising great care they will soon become accustomed to their new quarters When about to enter the house a slight noise announcing ones approach before opening the doors will prevent fright and Injury from a sudden rush or flight against obstacles in the pen Chickens soon get to know the call of a low soft whistle announcing to them the coming of the feed basket At this stage the repro ductive organs are developing rapid ly and any abuse or frightening may cause the loss of some of the finest In the flock We have entered poultry houses In the winter where the windows have been closed for days at a time The hens are found standing around with their feathers ruffled and looking as If they were nearly frozen to death In accustoming pullets to their now quarters see that they always have plenty of fresh air without a draught One of the best systems of ventilation Is to have a window hinged on one side and cloth on the other so that either one can be swung in at will Those having sliding windows can ar x t t r Our Illustration represents 25 White Leghorn pullets reared according to methods outlined here Twelve of theee pullets were hatched early In May 1906 and the remaining 14 durI- ng the early part of the following month On November 30 1906 the range to slide ono In from either side Doth should Usually be left open a little while during the day except In extremely cold weather Hens enjoy sunshine and fresh air but It should come through the window and not through cracks and crevices No one should expect hens to lay well In a house that in not constructed with tight walls The sides of many hen houses are made of unmatched lumber which has shrunk leaving cracks through which wind rain nnd snow blow perhaps directly on tho fowls No ono should expect hens to do well in such a place A few dollars spent on building paper and a few feet of battens will work a great change for tho better Simply spread tho build ing vapor smoothly over the sides of the house and then place battens on ovary 18 Inches A good coat of paint will Improve the appearance and make it more lasting Next let us consider the feed that the pullets should have when they come in off the range While on the range they doubtless found an abun dance of green food and meat In tho form of grass and Insects Wo must supply these two foods when the pul lets are confined to the laying houses If We con secure skim milk at a rea vonablo price or have on tho farm It will be found to be nn excellent food Very often one can buy green bone and scraps or wasto meat from tho markets at a reasonable price Any of these may be utilized as welj as scraps from the table as long as they are fresh No one should be guilty of feeding partially decayed meat hi any form We cannot expect people to pay good proces for eggs If our fowls eat unclean food In somo In stances the hens are fed tho meat from any animal that dies this prac tics should not be allowed Numerous complaints are made annually because even fresh eggs are oft In flavor When tho source of the trouble lr traced out we Invariably find the hens have been fed unclean food such as hotel swill horse meat or other carrion If milk or meat scraps cannot be secured locally It Is better to buy commercial beef scrap or gran ulated milk These will keep Indefi nicely when properly stored The green food may bo supplied In the form of cut alfalfa or clover hayI The hens will eat It either dry or steamed Mangolds or beets and cab bage also make excellent food and should be fed raw liots should bo sliced lengthwise until the hens learn to eat them when they may bo thrown In whole The niangelwurtzol Is the best variety for chicken feed The cabbage should bo hung up on a string where the hens can get exorcise work Ing at It Onions turnips potatoes and scVeral other vegetables may bo fed These however should bo cooked until soft and then mixed with about an equal bulk of bran feed while still quite warm We prefer to feed such a feed at noon Qe cure ful not to feed too much as the hens are very fond of soft moist mast and will gorge themselves with It It given a chancy Do sure that each hen can got her share and do not feed moro than they will cat up clean In 15 thin utes Also be careful to have the vegetables dry enough so that when the bran is added It will make a crum bly moist mixture Always bo careful to feed clean food of all kinds and shun all bad smelling disinfectants The egg shell la porous and will therefore allow the egg to absorb bad odors Store tho eggs in a clean place and market them at least once a week by following this method one should soon bo able to Rot a reputation for furnishing eggs that are good and genuinely fresh When the pullets are brought In from the range they may not bo corn pletely feathered It not an occasion al feed of sweet com will bo a groat treat for them and will help them pro duce a new coat of leathers Sun flower seeds contain oil and make an excellent addition to the ration help- Ing to produce new feathers quickly dlh4rlVx a- I It I average weight of this pen of pullets was 3j pounds The first egg pro duced by this pen was laid October 23 and during the 30 days of No vember a total of three hundred and ninetyone eggs were produced by the pen Oil meal or oil cake may also be added to the mash feud Wo like to uso 100 pounds of bran 75 pounds of mid dlings 25 pounds oil meal 100 pounds corn meal and 100 pounds beef scrap Canada peas also make an excellent addition to the ration during the moulting period The fowls soon learn to eat them and they will help keep tho birds vigorous during the strain of the moulting period There Is as much in care and man agement as in the food Keep the hens busy all day and then give them enough to fill the crops at night In this way ono can have healthy fowls and avoid many bad habits If a hopper Is used to feed mash supply a light feed of grain in the litter In the morning stir it In well so they have to work to find It At noon open tho hopper and let them help themselves until about four oclock when It should be closed and tho hens fed an abundant feed of grain If some grain is left In the Utter thoy will search It out the next morning If moist mash is fed it should bo given nt noon and then in moderation as the hens aro very fond of warm crumbly mash in cold weather and may engorge their crops If fed too much Aim to have a constant supply of fresh water Do not allow the fowls to get too hungry but endeavor to keep them comfortable busy and contented Dy strict adherence to thesQ rules ono should be able to make tho strong vlgorods pullets lay well all tho fall and winter Lime in the Poultry HouseA good coat of fresh whitewash Is probably worth more to most poultry houses than anything else Tho use of fu migation Is attended with many uncertainties as wo do not known how much the poisonous fumes affect lice mites and disease gorms But when these aro covered up with a good coat of limp It Is doubtful if they are iv any condition to do damage LIVING GOLD OF WHEAT FIELD Sensation of a Ride Through the Miles of Moving Grain Take a look at tho wheat field that has been brought up to perfection al- It

Shepherding HlISheepVal3 On such a wll derness of mirage Illusive paths lurk Ing terrors and Infrequent spots of herbage it Is evident that the person and character of tho shepherd must mean a great deal moro to the sheep than they can possibly mean with us With us sheep left to themselves may bo seen any dayIn a field or on a hillside with a traveling wire fence to keep them from straying Dut I do not remdmbor ever to havo seen in the east a flock of sheep without a shepherd On such a landscape as I have described he is obviously India pensable Tho sheep In modern times under civilized governments are as really protected by the shepherd as are those In the open fields of the orient only In a different way The laws take the place of clubs and crooks Fences and police guards aro but another mode of protecting the sheep from labyrinthine paths and desert dangers and of guiding them to the green pastures and waters of rest This Is equally true of life By a fuller knowledge of natural and divine law by the protection which Christian civilization bestows and the guidance of Gods word many things are done for us which needed once moro visible guidance But it Is the same Shepherding as was given of old The Good Shepherd loves his sheep with an everlasting love He gives his life for the sheep Ho left heaven his home and became man i taught suffered died that ho might find his lost ones The shepherdhood of Christ and the fatherhood of God are the two most comforting assurances of Scrip turnIlugh Black The Good Shepherd Knows His Sheep by Name t is a remarkable fact in oriental husbandry that in a flock of hundreds of thousands each Individual sheep has its name knows It and Is kno by 1t This Implies 1 That tho shepherd takes a living personal Interest in each Individual 2 That he knows each individuals peculiar circumstances so that he ministers TB each one what he specially needs and requires 3 That he assigns to each one the work for which he is best fitted 4 That he can accept the love and loyalty of each Individual Jesus the Good Shepherd does all this and more for his flock Every life needs shepherding and a shepherd knows his sheep by their weakness and faults and measures his care of them thereby and when the Good Shepherd calls his own sheep he calls them by the name which sug gests at once their falling and his help and his call thus

has paid it to the publisher jf Advertising creates a goodwill worth the cost of the publicity It actually costs nothing While it uses funds it does not use them upsIt helps the founder ofa business to grow rich and at the same time keeps his business from not dying when he does I It eliminates the personal equation It per petuates confidence in the store and makes it possible for a merchant to withdraw from business without having the profits of the business withdrawn from him It changes a name to an institutionan institution that will survive after the death of its builder i It is really an insurance policy which costs nothing pays a premium each year instead of calling for one and renders it possible to e change the entire personnel ofa business without disturbing its prosperity

libraries Is it not time that we gave her her proper There is no need for alarm so far as I can sea in this ques tion Tho of fiction in libraries as it does to from 50 to 75 per of tho total circula

going wrong trashy novels but I dftubt if there is a single case on record where the evil can be traced solely to the reading of the socalled dime novel The among libraries as among other today is to and I would give the fiction library full I would even where give it a with special trained for this work make the as to fiction lovers as and secure the of the readers in the matter of buying new books With trained at tendants in this field it would be to fiction and even to paste in each volume n list of other books with similar to be found in the library Thus novels would contain a list of the best histories of the referred to or biog raphies of the in the novel or histories of battles and so on If the of novels is as as many of our library friends would have us believe let us abolish thorn and leave the of fiction to the private libraries Ilon the other hand we think the of fiction is we must not under take tho office of censor beyond what is made necessary by the limits of our funds No public library can expect to meet the demand for the latest thriller from its and I do not see why it should try Let it alone and attention and money upon the novels that have proved to be

the divorce prolr lem At any rate there is no wastefulness in the Boston cooking depart ment We have 43 public school kitchens in Boston in charge of 30 tea h ers Each instructor is allowed 12 a month for the purchase of sup plies Certainly that is not extravagant And the amount of work done for such a small sum of money is really remarkable I dont mean that each teacher spends exactly 12 every month At the beginning of the year when we give instruction in cooking cereals the bills are often only 6 or 8 Later when we take up the meats and fish the bills may be 10 But we average 12 a month Economize Oh yes we have to be very careful It takes a great deal of planning The teachers go marketing and in turn teach the pupils how to buy the most nutritious meat for the least money Then we teach them not only the cooking of food but also the chemistry of food and the makeup of Carious kinds and thoir effect on the body All branches of housework are taught by the cooking teachers too and

pleasure which ia manifested by a violent laugh How docs it happen that emotions so contrary can exteriorize themselves byan identical physiological phenomenon tears Laughter is an effort missingthe respiration so that the inhalations are interrupted every instant It is enough to look at tho figure of the laugher his vivid lips the swollen veins of his fore head in order to divine the intense congestion of his brain In laughter the blood coming from the primary carotid toward the face finds the external carotid impassable because of trY muscular con tractions BO it takes the internal carotid and flows toward the brain This however already congested and engorged by the venous blood which is stopped by the arrested breathing would certainly burst under the pressure of the blood were not the ophthalmic artery there to save the situation The blood coursing up toward the brain escapes to the side of the eyes to tho lachrymal glands Now how do these react toward this aflhix of blood By an abun dant secretion of tears Otherwise put the lachrymal glands transform into tears the blood which cornea to them The tears are a blessing the more salutary in that they often prevent apoplexy from afflicting tho immediate laughter Their usefulness in laughter is incontestableTears still more useful in times of sadness ale though they net upon the brain in a different way If the brain is congested in laughter it is tense in tho state of sadness The blood which is sent up to the brain acts as an anaesthetic Our grief moves us less it seems less poig slant less painful Tears are a natural anaes thetic comparable to artificial anaesthetics TEDDY BEARS LED THE GIRLS WHO CARRIED ANTIRACE SUICIDE TRANSPARENCIES Wellesley College Students Hold Political Parade In College Grounds

fa art not the heritor him III General News Tho first thing that has to be considered by the editor who is trying to yet out a paper to meet nil the needs of a progressive luau is what is known us tho general news Thin Is tlio Jjig doings of thu big world news that is about the same everywhere anti Is inter esting not because it is ueiirhome ocJecaiiRtt uo know some of tho people but just because it is important Under this head come all the big accideiilN all the big undertakings nnd discoveries all the ex periments men are making in machinery or funning the condition of the worlds crops wars und rumors of wars aud the thoimuud other things that the whole world is interested iuIAt first eight it wouldseem that this news would be the for every ono the world over but wheti we come to think of it samei that there are differences The same things that makes sonic llirticIulur little piece of news valuable to some people govern here with lets force anti as a matter of fact even the geuurul nuns has to be carefully selected accord ing to tho needs aud interests of the muuity where the paper is to be read This is one of the things cowI want to watch in choosing a paper is the news in it valuable to or does the editor just pick out things which come handy and help fill up his space ThiH careful selection is not all that is needed however No one knows all about the world tho some people thiuk tho editor ought to andso there are a great many pieces of news which do not show at first sight their real importance A man who has been familiar with goudtllero i has failed for any reason to keep tip with the news from day to day will loose it all Fur instance suppose six years ago you had readIin a newspaper some day that Jres McKinley was dead would bo interesting but unless you happened to know you ThatI not feel the horror that came over people who understood I manythingstheirfrom the beginning And then too ninny important things that hap I pen in foreign countries are not understood in this one because we are not acquainted with tho way people live over there To be shortIthe news should not only be wisely selected but all doubtful things I should be explained so that the readers will get tho full benefit ofIwhat is printed That is an other thing to watch See whether or oat paperI is in n week ly paper for any one thing BO it cannot possibly give OK much room even to the most important happenings OB is used in the dailies bedroppedthat does this skillfully can give several times as many facts in a giv en amount of room as a poor editor the paper that tells the most Is ofcourse the most valublo So this is a third thing to watch how much condensed understandable well selected news is there In your paperThis condensed and explained news is valuable oven for the man that takes a daily paper Reading along from day to day a man will forget many things and perhaps have an entirely wrong impression about affairs when he comes to the end of the week A well edited summary of the weeks happenings will then show him the really important things and leave the weeks history clear in his mind with out any clouds or mistakes So we see the real importance of having the general news well handled in the weekly paper It is worth whilo for any man who is thingsforone for him The article next week will bo on the value and methods of haudr ling of local news II
