For 25 cents, or at most half a dollar,
you can get a paper or thin silk lamp
shade which is admirable for a minia
ture shade. Select the thinnest one you
can find, and on one side mark out a
circle the size of the picture you are giv
ing to set in the frame.
Of miniature picture frames it can be
said that the prettiest ones are made
(rom small colored pictures to be cut out
of the periodicals, but if you have a
photograph you prefer you can use it
Cut out the circle along the line you
have marked. Lightly touch the edges
with glue, and when it has dried touch
them with glue again. While the glue
Is moist press the picture upon the
shade, pressing the edges firm with the
fingers. You will now find that you
have a pretty face through which the
light falls gently upon you.

Carefully ascertain before the child is
immersed in the bath that the-.vater be
reitlher too hot nor too cold. Careless
ness or over-anxiety to put him in the
water as quickly as possible has fre
quently, from his being immersed in
the bath when the water was too hot,
caused him great pain and suffering.
From 9(> to 98 degrees Fahrenheit is the
proper temperature of a warm bath. If

usual time for him to remain in a bath
is a quarter of an hour or 20 minuma.
Let the chest and the bowels be rubbed

Let him be immersed in the bath es
high up as the neck, taking care that he
be the while supported under the arm

As soon as he comes out of tlie bath liie

Average Size* of Children.
The average child, in its fourth year,
should be three feet high and weigh
more than 2S pounds; in the sixth year.
Hy 2 feet high and weigh 42; in the eighth
year, four feet In height and 56 pounds
in weight; at 12 jears, five feet in height
and 70 pounds in weight is a fair
overage. Growth is very irregular in
children and young- people generally;
perhaps two inches may be gained in
two months, and for the next ten
months not over an inch,even up to the
age of tea or twelve years.
It is not the hunter with the most ex
pulsive gun wiio gets the most game.

There is threat of invasion by an
orange-eating worm. Not only does it
menace a great fruit-producing in
dustry in this country, but every house
holder has reason to dread its appear
ance on his table. Out in California the
orange growers are fairly panic
stricken, and not a little alarm is felt in
Florida and Louisiana.
The insect has its home in Mexico.
It is an unpleasant looking maggot,
about an inch long and in color yellow
ish white. The pulp of the orange is
its food, and it makes its way into the
fruit without leaving any outward and
visible sign of its presence within.
This, indeed, is one of the worst things
about it. If the infested fruit exhibited
surface evidences of having been at
tacked, the oranges might be picked
over and the bad ones rejected. Hut the
golden sphere, fair to look upon and
promising a joy to the palate, is rotten
within. Cut open with a knife, half of
its pulp perhaps is found to have been
devoured, and maybe a dozen or mora
of the disgusting larvae, authors of the
mischief, are seen within.
It will be easily understood that the
Infestation of the groves of California
ht- this insect would be likely to cause a
loss of millions of dollars annually to
that st<it*. Tleing a sort of next-door
neighbor to Mexico, California is in spe
cial danger; and, realizing the fact, she
has already established a quarantine
against oranpes from that country.
During the last six weeks the govern
ment bureau of entomology has been
making a special investigation of the
matter. It has sent an expert. Mr. C.
11. T. Townsend, to Mexico, to study the
vvorrr. and its work, and he has made a
report on the subject. The maggot is
the larvae of a fly which lays its eggs
in the pores of the ripening orange on
the tree. The young larvae, on being
hatched, makes its way into the fruit
without leaving any hole or other ex
ternal sign. It bores down through the
pulp, entinp as it goes, and converts the
juicy interior into so much rot and
Naturally the Mexican authorities
have been perturbed by this threat of
excluding their oranges. They have
presented arguments on the subject.
They declare that the insect in question
is not at all common; that it is confined
. J to one district —namely, the state of
• j Morelos, about 100 miles south of the
j City of Mexico.—X. Y. World.

Cover for Card Table.
Covers for card tables are attractive
made of denim. A model one is of dark
blue denim one yard and a quarter
square. To this is added a border ten
inches wide of the same material in the
lightest shade of blue. Appliqued upon
the border are cards of white felt with
spots of the various suits painted on
them. Fancy letters in the center of the
cover spell "Hearts are Trumps."

When to 110 It.
One year ago last May we set 100
peach trees. Having often heard the
advice given to set small trees instead
of the large, first-class ones we felt that
possibly we had made a mistake when
giving the order. Wishing to save the
time of one or two years' growth, if
possible, we ordered the best two-year
old trees. They were shipped in good
condition and were set as soon as re
ceived. They were well set, allowing
all roots their natural position. We out
any roots off that would otherwise be
cramped or bent up and cut off all in
jured or mangled portions of roots.
Did not dig all the hoies before begin
ning to set the trees as some do, but set
stakes for the trees and then brought
the trees out to a convenient place in
the orchard, covering the roots with a
quantity of wet straw and moss with
blankets over this.
It takes very little hot sun and still
less of drying wind directly on plant or
tree roots to affect their growth. The
spot selected for the trees had been
plowed very deep and thoroughly fitted
before the trees came. Each hole was
dug for the particular root that was to
be planted in it. After the hole was
dug the tree was placed in position,
when man No. 1 held it there and
tramped the fine soil about the roots
as man No. 2 shoveled the dirt in. After
the trees were planted we cut them
back or pruned them until they had
the appearance of a whipstock, and
that about 3V 2 feet in length.
It seems almost a waste of growth
and the wrong thing to do to prune a
nice shaped tree so severely, but our
limited experience in this line has
taught us that it is the thing to do, and
that the tree will soon more than make
up in growth for this "setback." Out
of the 100 we have lost one tree.
They have made a remarkable growth
and we have not regretted .setting large
trees. The above trees are now well
filled with fruit buds, but buds on a
peach tree this time of year cannot al
ways be considered buds of promise.
We did not consider it necessary to
lose the use of the ground while the
trees were gel ting large enough to
fruit. We set strawberries for plants
in the rows of trees and three feet from
this row on each side just half way
between the tree rows one way we set
raspberries. Trees, berry plants and
all were mulched with stable manure
one year ago, and all expressed their
thanks for it in growth the past sum
mer.—A. 13. Olin, in National Stock

Method of I'roiißKiillon,
What is called the mud system of
rooting cuttings is often used for small
quantities. A shallow dish of any kind
which will hold two or three inches
of sand is selected. The sand is entire
ly covered with water, which is re
newed as evaporation takes place. Cut
tings or slips are set in this mud bath,
which is placed in the warmest win
dow of the house. Being surrounded
>y moisture they can stand the sun
without wilting. Koot the hardier
kinds first, such as geraniums, verbenas
and fuchsias; coleus, heliotropes, etc.,
can be left until later. This method is
well adapted for small house conserva
tories; as this is sometimes obtained by
heating ten or fifteen degrees above the
air in the room it causes the quickest
growth, as well as the window. A bot
tom heat, an inclosed space with a
common oil lamp placed below it.
Young seedling plants are very apt to
"damp off" in their young stages. It
is found that this occurs simply from
exposure. If the young plants, just as
soon as they cnti be handled, are lifted
and reset in the soil deep enough to
expose only the seed leaves, this damp
ing off is completely checked and it
rarely occurs again.—Farm and Home.
AVlion to Trim Apple Tree*.
It does not pay to doctor up old neg
lected trees, except to get a supply of
fruit, until young trees become beara
ble. Apple trees are very cheap. If
some old trees are desired to be kept,
prune, during mild weather, before
April 1. Don't trim trees during hard
frost. Prune to admit air and sunshiine,
also to remove limbs that cross each
other or chafe. If the piuning knife is
used with discretion from the time the
tree is young, a much better tree is se
cured. If the ground is poor, tree
scabby, or of weak growth, give good
dressing of barnyard manuro, but if
the wood is vigorous, and soil fairly
rich, I would give each tree about one
peck acid phosphate or bone dust, and
one bushel unleached wood ashes, scat
tered evenly over amd beyond the roots.

of Some Fnllnrcii.
It is an easy matter to set a few cur
rants aind gooseberry plants along the
fence row, and then leave them to the
mercy of weeds and worms without
fertilization or cultivation. Then the
owner wonders why it is his fruit is so
much inferior to that of his more
thrifty neighbor. No wonder that he
comes to the conclusion that "there is
only now and then o>ne who is calcu
lated to raise fruit anyhow." Plants,
like animals, need a well-balanced ra
tion aind a large per cent, of brains is
one of the principal ingredients. Cur
rants and gooseberries are no excep
tion to this rule. These plants will bear
some fruit without care, though it will
!>e smaller in size, poorer in quality and
the yield less than when liberally treat

which were made at the several state and
county fairs in some of the Western staU»
this fall, have awakened considerable in
terest in the lands which the Canadian Gov
ernment has opened for settlement, and
which are given free to settlers. The agents
of the government, who are to be found in
these states, are flooded with inquiries re
garding the conditions on which these lands
may be secured, I.arge numbers have lo
cated on these lands during the past year,
and send back to their friends most encour
aging reports. They say they have entered
in an era of prosperity, and are well pleased
with both the agricultural possibilities and
the climate. The provinces of Manitoba,
Assinaboia and Alberta are especially adapt
ed to diversified farming. In some parts ths
country is specially adapted to stock raising,
and it is being profitably pursued. In these
parts snow seldom remains a week at a time,
the warm breezes from the ocean affecting
the climate thus favorably. When the de
sirability of these lands is fully known there
will be a rush such as has scarcely ever be
fore been known. Information as to low
railway rates, illustrated pamphlets, etc.,
will be forwarded with pleasure by the De
partment of the Interior, Ottawa, Canada,

an agent of the government.

How baldness begins.
How to prevent it.
Every person, male or female, shrinks
from baldness. It adds to the appearance
of age and is a serious discomfort. The
cases are rare when the falling out of the
hair may not be stopped, and a new and
healthy growth of the hair promoted. The
hair grows in the scalp like a plant in the
soil. If a plant flourishes, it must have
constant attention: it must be watered
regularly and find its food in the soil
where it is rooted. It's so with the hair.
Neglect is usually the beginning of bald
ness. Dandruff is allowed to thicken on
the scalp. The hair begins to loosen. The
scalp loses its vitality. The hair, insuf
ficiently nourished, begins to fade and to
fall. The instant need in such a case is
some practical preparation which, sup
plying the needed nourishment to the
scalp, will feed the hair, give it strength,
and so produce a strong and healthy
growth. All this is done by Dr Ayer's
Hair Vigor, the most practical and valua
ble preparation for the hair that can be
obtained. It tones up the scalp, docs away
with dandruff, stops the hair from falling,
restores the original color to gray or faded
