cowslips is a little deeper than the

a long table with chairs drawn around

latest books and a writing service. All
these may be as elegant as one's prse

charin and effect by their suggestion of

It is not generally supposed that
many of the labor-saving inventions ol
the world may be credited to women.
The Chinese Empress Tao, for example,
worked out useful ideas in her busj
brain. She invented the spinning ol
silk, never dreaming of the immense
industry that would grow from her
creation. A luxurious woman of Asia
discovered the attar of roses, and this
same woman, Mhearai Misi, invented
the ingenious handicraft, the eashipere

Where temporary wire fences are
used to any considerable extent, the
corner or end posts may be anchored as
shown in the illustration. The large

as the post is placed and the earth is
solidly trampled above it. Place the

the top of the post. By using a s f '"cK,
b, the wire can be tightened if there is
any tendency to become loose. To move
the fence, loosen the lower strand from
the posts. Begin at one end and make a
coil about two feet across. Roll this on
the ground, crossing and recrossing the
strand of wire with the roll, about
every foot of length on the strand.
The barbs will hold it and keep the roll
together. When the roll is as large as is
convenient to handle, cut the wire and
begin again. When replacing fasten
one end to the post where the top wire
is to stay and roll along the ground
close to the posts. Follow with the sec
ond one a little further off and then the
third. Experience has proved to me
that this is the easiest, quickest and
best plan to remove w ire fence, as after
some practice it can be done quickly. —
E. D. Smith, in Orange Judd Farmer.
Quite a Number of Thein, Including
Itoup, Cholera, Influenza 11 ml
Diphtheria, Are Contusions.
Drs. Smith and Moore, of the bureau
of animal industry, Washington, D. C.,
have made important investigations on
the above subject. They find that
"black head" in turkeys, diphtheria,
cholera and roup in fowls are con
tagious. They also believe that so
called roup, influenza and sometimes
cholera are different stages of the one
disease diphtheria. However this
may be, it is stated that diphtheria is
infectious, and it may be transmitted
to children. Therefore the great im
portance of separating all sick fowls
and confining them tosomeoutbuilding,
keeping the children away. Doctoring
sick fowls is very unprofitable business,
and there is seldom any reason why
the fowls should be sick, provided you
have done your part. Your part is to
keep the roost clean and free from
lice. Give clean water daily. Fill up
all low places where water is apt to
collect and clear away all rubbish—
burning it is the proper thing. Fur
nish good, sharp grit for the fowls, and
don't get the poultry so fat that the or
gans will he so clogged that they can
not perform their normal duties.
Make the roost tight and dry and pro
vide convenient dusting places. Make
the fowls exercise by scratching in
litter. In fact, this last point and clean
fresh water will go a long way toward
keeping the fowls in good health.
There is no kind of stock on the farm
that is more healthy than fowls when
they have proper care. Too many peo
ple try to crowd 100 fowls in too small
a house. This not only lessens tho
number of eggs, but is apt to breed dis
ease as well. The fowls in the center of
a crowded perch will get too warru,
and therefore colds will follow. A
house 20 by 30 feet is not a bit too large
for 100 fowls. The proper way is to
divide the fowls up into smaller flocks
of say 12 to 20 fowls each, and separate
them during t'hp cold weather at least.

Meringue Itlm Pudding.
Boil one cup of rice in one quart of
milk until it is tender, remove from the
fire, and stir in the yolks of three eggs
that have been previously beaten; add
sugar to suit the taste, a pinch of salt,

of the whites of the eggs by beating
them stiff, and add to them four table

Women as Hpi«K.
Women might serve this government
as spies in a great war. That a woman
cannot keep a secret herself or let any
one else keep one is not borne out by
certain secret archives kept in a large
fireproof safe in the war department.
One of the most active and reliable
union spies in the late war was a wom
an, who worked successfully for a long
period. Eventually, however, she was
caught by the enemy and hanged to a
tree. Martial law, which states that
"the spy is punishable by death by
hanging by the neck," has no respect
for sex.—N. Y. Herald.

The policy of this country regarding for

scanty. It is almost as serious a loss when
the natural hue of the hair begin.-, to fade,
and the shining tresses of chestnut and
auburn are changed to gray or to a faded
shadow of their former brightness. Such
a loss is no longer a necessity. There is
one remedy which may well be called a
great remedy by reason of its great suc
cess in stopping the falling of the hair,
cleansing the scalp of dandruff, and re
storing the lost color to Rrav or faded
tresses. l)r. Aver's Hair Vigor is a stand

thousands of homes, and recommended by
everyone who has tested it and experi

its use. It makes hair grow. It restores
the original color to hair that has turned
gray or faded out. It stops hair from fall
ing, cleanses the scalp of dandruff, and
gives the hair a thickness and gloss that
no other preparation can produce.
