Pleasant Way in Which Two Pennsylvania Girls Are Picking Up
Summer Pin Money.
There are two girls in the southern part of Pennsylvania living in the suburbs of a
large town. Their home has a little plot of land around it and this plot of land is being
Blade the basis of a snug little summer fortune.
Desiring more pin money than can be found in the family purse, these two girls
kav« taken to cultivating potted plants in the hope of selling them in the fall. They
iave started roses and foliage plants; and when fall comes they expect to have lome
hing to sell.
The amount of money these young women expect to earn on their little patch of
and is not great, but it will be as large as they* could hope to get if they were at work
n a store behind a counter. Three or four dollars does not sound very much, but to a
ome girl with nothing at all except the chance dollar, it amounts to a great deal,
'hese young women will sell their foliage plants in the fall to anybody who wants
hem; and, as the raising of them costs nothing but the time and the patience, they will
;ain every cent clear profit.
Are there any girls who would like to do the same as these girls this summer? If
here are, let them get the cuttings in the ground, water them well and pot at the ear
est opportunity. Set the pots deep in the soil to keep them moist, and when Septem
er comes lift tiie pots out of the ground and get ready for the October sale. Take

A top of white or dark silk comes just
to the knee, and to this buttons a

A good many women sew the flounce
to the top of the skirt, instead of but
The top of the flounce is, of course,
finished with a straight band, often
formed of a wide tape, and the top of
the skirt has a substantial facing about
two inches deep.
Since skirts must fit so smoothly
about the hips and fall full about the
feet, the drop skirt becomes almost a

—button or are sewed to a dark silk
top, preferably black.
There is economy in this method also.
It takes a good many yards to make
a top to every petticoat. One woman,
who knows just what is what in matters
of dress, buttons her washable petti
coat flounces to tops of smooth, heavy,

Though this is the original form of

This is the foundation upon which
are built skirts of ganzy fabrics.

CAGE FOR DEHORNING.
It!■ KiiMlly Set Down ut a Scale Pen,
the Opening of a Shed or
End of a Laue.
Dimensions: Six feet long, 6 feet
high, 3y a feet wide at top in front and
4'/i feet wide at top at back end. Hot
tom of foot board is 1 foot wide, with 7
cleats iy 2 inches thick, 1 foot long,
nailed across it to keep cattle from
silpping-. Foot board 2 inches thick,
and rests on the three 2x4-inch cross
pieces 4 feet long. To these are bolt
ed upright pieces 7 feet long 2x4inches
for nailers for sides of cage. Across
the top of cage are used two strips
Ix 4 inches for each set of uprights,
bolted one on each side of upright.
The inside of this frame is boarded up
with inch planks of convenient widths.
The lowir S'/ 2 feet should close enough
to prevent animals putting their feet
through the cracks.
On the left side, 3% feet from bot
tom, should be used a board one foot
wide, and one foot longer than the
cage. In this bore two one-inch holes
four inches from sides of board.
Through these put a piece of rope and
tie on outside. This loop is put over
the animal's nose and drawn tight by
the use of a hand spike. An upright
lever is used to catch back of the
head and draw it to the left side of
cage. This upright should be a
strong 2x4-inch, 9 feet long, bolted to
bottom cross piece near the right side,
the upper end slipping back and forth
between the cross pieces that hold the
tops of the two front uprights in
place. This lever is thrown to the
right when open for the animal to
enter. As soon as the head passes it
is pushed to the left side and fastened
as tight as required by a small iron
pin slipped through the cross pieces
at top back of it.
As soon as the head is fastened a
hand spike is slipped through the cage
back of the animal, and another over
the neck to hold the head down. These
remain in place usually without hold
ing, the operator standing in front
while taking off the horns. The small
est animal having horns, up to a bull
weighing 1,830 pounds, lias been de
horned in this sized cage. Animals
weighing up 1,200 pounds pass right
through the cage when the holding
lever is thrown back against the right
side. Cows heavy in calf and larger an
imals back out of the cage.
The maker of this cage has re
modeled it three times to get it as
described, and has used it nine year*.
The first j'ear he dehorned 150; his
work now running from 4,000 to 5,000
from October through March.
Animals dehorned early in the sea
son liea) quickly because in pood flesh.
As an experiment, used saw and clip
pers on seven steers, cutting- one horn
off with clippers the other with saw.
The sawed stub healed in one-half
the time required by the clipped. The
latter crushes inside of the horn,
which must decay and come out be
fore the wound can heal. The op
erator we refer to loads the cage
across a common gravel box on a
wagon and travels to convenient
points, where the cattle are driven to,
him. He is a rapid workman. With
two or three assistants to help drive
and hold he once took horns off 33
head of two-year-olds in 27 minutes.
Another time he dehorned 60 head
of 700-pound cattle in 49 minutes. The
cage can be set down at any con
venient place, at a scale pen, opening
of a shed, or end of lane. The accom
panying illustration will give the read?
er a clear understanding of the cage.—•
John M. Jamison, in National Stock
Not All llerllm Are Hail.
The common ground beetle devours
cutworms in great numbers, and the
soldier bug and the wheel bug are
noted for their predaceous instincts.,
They live upon whatever worms, slugs
and insects they can find in the gar
den. Even our wasps are great insect
destroyers, and if we could overcome
our natural prejudice against them we
should find that they deserve to live.
They will not sting one unless cornered
or frightened in some way; but they
will destroy slugs and tent caterpillars
by the dozen.
Expensive Sort of Economy.
Reports from south Xevv Jersey
say that some of the stone roads are
in bad condition. The freeholders,
who have them in charge, are farm
ers, and will not look after them while
busy with farm work, nor employ a
supervisor to care for them. This
will prove an expensive policy, as
a thorough system of care and re
pair is essential to maintain stone
roads in condition and secure the
greatest efficiency from them.
In a measure high culture helps to
produce better fruit and prevent rot.

"About six years ago," said Mrs. Adams,
"I weighed about 140 pounds, but my
health began to fail and I lost flesh. My
food did not agree with me and felt like a
stone in my stomach. I began to bloat all
over until I thought I had dropsy.
"I had pains and soreness in my left side
which extended clear across my back and
also into the region of my heart. During
these spella a hard ridge would appear in
the left side of my stomach and around the

All last summer I was so nervous that the
children laughing and playing nearly drove
me wild. I suffered also from female
troubles and doctored with ten different
physicians without receiving any help.

"Talk about hard luck," said the girl
with the hot chocolate. "I know a wom
an who had an awful thing happen to her
over in New York."
'Oh, do tell me about it," gurgled the
girl with the ice cream soda.
"Well," went on the chocolate girl, "she's
not wealthy at all, you know, and she
doesn't keep a nurse. So, one day, when
she had togo down town shopping, she took
her baby and left it at one of these day
nursery creche places. They gave her a
cheek for it, and she went off shopping. She
didn't come back to the creche till late in
the afternoon, and when she went to take
out the check it was gone."
"Good gracious!" said the girl with the
ice cream soda, looking shocked. "What
did she do?"
"Well," went on the chocolate girl, "they
told her she couldn't take the baby without
a check, and she'd have to wait till the other
babies were taken away, and then she could
have what was left. So she waited for hours
and hours, till all the babies were gone but
one, and when she went to get that —well,
the only baby left was a colored baby."
"Oh, how perfectly awful!" exclaimed
the girl with the ice cream soda, in accents
of horror. "What did she do? Wasn't she
perfectly frantic? My goodness, how hor
rible! Didn't she ever get her baby back
again? 1 should think she'd have been per
fectly crazy. What did she do?"
"Oh, said the chocolate girl, coolly, "she
took the colored baby. It was hers. She
was colored, you know."
