Warren scowled at the array of
highly colored posters that graced the
front of Ketchem's Moving Picture
"Nothing but thrillers. Come on,
there's another place up here. Let's
see what they've got."
The bright lights of another "movie"
house shone out a block or so ahead.
But as they drew ner the flaming pos
ters proclaimed even more spectacular
Apparently the star feature was
"the Viper's Fangs,' and the litho
graphs showed a hair-raising scene of
a. man .tied and gagged, being lowered
over the side of a vessel into the black
waters beneath, while a shrieking wo
man, with flowing hair, was held back
by swarthy sailors.
Warren viewed this work of art with
"Well, what shall we do*4 Try an
other place or take a chance here?"
"Oh, I suppose they're all about the
name," answered Helen. "And there
aren't any more near here, are there?"
Warren thrust his hand into his
pocket and approached the ticket
"Don't stand In the aisles, please!
Keep within the tire lines!" called the
usher, as they entered the darkened,
Helen clung to Warren's arm and
stood on tip-toes trying to see over
the shoulders of those standing in
front of her.
The picture on the screen was an
elaborately furnished library with a
man in evening dress in excited con
troversy with a younger man in shab
"Dear, maybe we could get seats up
stairs," suggested Helen, who hated
to stand in a crowd.
A Rush For Seats
"Oh, we'll get seats when this pic
ture's over. What's it all about, any
way? One of those three reelers?"
"Is that man her husband?" Helen
had been trying to make out the story.
"And whose child is that?"
The film ended abruptly on a scene
in which the older man signs a paper,
and the woman falls on her knees be
As the picture flashed off there was
■i general stir, and a dozen or more
people came up the aisle. But those
standing ahead made a rush for the
"If they'd only have the seats re
served," complained Helen, as they
had to go far down in front. "I'd
think everybody would be willing to
pay a little more to avoid this
"Miranda's Beau, a Comedy," was
the next picture, a roaring slap-stick
farce, at which Warren laughed and
which put the house in an uproar.
Then came "An Artist's Find." The
first picture showed an attic studio,
a sick wife and the artist, who has
received an order for a small picture.
Having no money to buy the canvas
lie starts out to pawn his overcoat.
"Oh, this is taken in Paris," whis
pered Helen, as the artist passed a
street cafe on his way to the pawn
shop. "It's in the Latin Quarter, too
—don't you remember that corner?"
eagerly. "Dear, I think we've been
in that very cafe."
"Oh, you can't tell—all those street
places look alike."
Having pawned his overcoat, the
artist stops at a curio shop, where he
selects fro ma pile of old canvases one
of the desired size. He takes it home,
washes off the landscape daub, anil
finds underneath a Madonna by an old
painter. But threadbare as was this
story, the street scenes and setting
were real and the parts well fitted.
"Dear, we're so near, it hurts mv
eyes. Can't we get farther back now?
I .ook, there arc some seats back there
across the aisle."
Warren, who hated to crawl out
over people, grumblingly gathered up I
his stick, hat and overcoat.
A Fcuil Story
The next was a Kentucky feud story, I
lurid with revenge. Helen moved
restively. She hated the constant
shooting, emphasized by the banging
of the kettle-drum.
"You're too blamed critical," com
mented Warren. "Those Western I
Plants have to do something with I
"But this isn't Western picture."

They did work In the horses, in a
thrilling ambush scene, and Helen
clutched Warren's arm as a horse was
shot down with his rider.
"Oh, that's brutal- It oughtn't to

room and turned up the light.
A well-taken picture always ap

to appreciate any special effects in
focus and lighting.

asked a woman's voice behind them.

Helen looked at the fur-lined coat
which the man throw to the butler
with a lordly air, and wondered in
how many pictures it had served.
The next scene showed Ruth, weak
from lack of food, failing in the snow,
and being driven over by the sleigh
of her former employer.
"Oh, how could they get that?" for
the picture showed Ruth falling,
showed the sleigh passing over her
arms, and then her efforts to arise.
"Substituted a dummy when the
sleigh ran over her. Didn't you see
that slight hitch? Clever work, too,"
Then came the announcement of

"Guess we've had our ten cents'

Helen pinned on her hat and they
made their way out.
"Pretty good show," as he paused
in the lobby to button his coat.
"And some of those films were very
expensive," reflected Helen.
"The photography and the settings
were all fine."
Helen took his arm impulsively.

Garbage From Hotels
Is Dangerous For
Biddy; Makes Her 111
Hens are subject to a catarrhal in
llammation of the crop, due to im
proper feeding, or to other unhygienic
conditions connected with their care,
and this manifests itself by dissension
of the crop with fluids that are often
sour, and a general appearance of de
bility upon the part of the fowl.
Garbage from hotels and large
boarding houses is very liable to con
tain unwholesome materials and is a
somewhat dangerous food unless care
fully inspected before feeding. Small
quantities from private tables are not
as likely, of course, to contain bits of
spoiled meat and other deleterious
food. The distended crop of a hen
suffering from this trouble should be
emptied by careful manipulation of
the crop while holding the hen head
downward. She should then be given
a little water containing a pinch of
bicarbonate of soda, as sweetener, and
placed by herself where she can be fed
sparingly upon soft, easily digested
food until site recovers.

THREE ENEMIES OF
THE ITIDIUL BIRD
Overfeeding, Dampness and Lice
Are Turkey's Worst
The three worst enemies of tittle
turkeys art lice, overfeeding and
Successfully combat these and a
line flock is almost sure to result. If
the 1 ooding hen and nest can be kept
free from lice before hatching time
the battle is half won. Dust the nest
material well when eggs are put in,
and dust the hen each week, sifting
the powder well through the feathers.
Many turkey raisers ask the ques
tion: "Why do my turkeys die when
about the, size of pigeons? They grow,
and seem line until then, but 1 lose
sometimes half my flock at that time."
In some cases it may be blackhead,
and that is a bad disease to combat.
Tlu> Other Enemies
But there are other enemies to I
young turkeys, and many are sacrl- !
ticed to causes less hard to tight. Over- j
feeding is one, bringing on indigestion, j
diarrhoea, liver trouble, etc. Little i
turkeys must lie kept hungry and !
moving about; exercise is very essen- j
tial, and they will not exercise if < er- ;
fed and pampered. They need plenty I
of sharp grit, and plenty of fresh wa- I
ter in clean dishes. A disinfectant !
may be added, carbolic acid is g <od |
for the bowels, and Is used in the j
proportion of one teaspoonful car- '
bolic to one gallon of water.

When the turkeys are on range j
they need be fed but once a day. Keep !
poults out of green grain. If allowed I

young turkeys; they will not, at first,
pick it themselves. Cut fine and mix
it with bran, sour milk and raw egg.

Electricity to Lesson
Hardships of the Miners
A combined electrically operated
coal-cutting and loading machine has
been developed recently, the use of
which will lessen the hardship on
miners who have heretofore been re
quired to lie in a cramped position on
their backs or sides while wielding a
pick in the extraction of coal from a
vein. The new device consists in gen
eral of an undercutting chain, two ver
tical sheering chains, a pick, a sta
tionary frame, a pan, on which the
cutter head can be fed backward and
forward, a receiving conveyor, and
separate loadgln apparatus for lump
and slack coal. The apparatus, which
operates similarly to the breast ma
chines now employed in some mines,
can be placed in any working space
and need not he removed until the
coal is ail worked out.—Electrical
BABY CHICKS IN
THEIR OWN CLASS
Gain 26 Times Original Weight
in About Twelve
Of all our domestic mimals bab,
chicks stand in a class by themselves
in respect to their rapidity of growth.
Chicks when hatched weigh about one
and one-hjilf ounces each, and they
can be made to weigh 2 % pounds, or
40 ounces apiece, when twelve weeks
old. This is an increase of slightly
more than 26 times the original
weight in twelve weeks. In other
words, during the first twelve weeks
of its life a little chick averages to
increase in weight each week more
than double Its original weight.
The fact that a chick doubles its
original weight in about six days gives
some very valuable information as to
what it should be fed. It has been
proved that in the case of animals
that suckle their young, that the com
position of the mother's milk varies
directly, according to the length of
time required for the young to double
its original weight. The more quickly
the young animal doubles this weight,
the more protein and ash constituent
It receives in Its rations. In fact, this
might naturally be expected to be the
ease, for if the body of an animal Is
to be built up quickly, it stands to rea
son that the ration should be concen
trated and contain an abundance of
protein to form flesh, the ash constitu
ents to form bone.
Ten Hens Laid 61
Eggs in One Week;
Fritchey's Fowls Fifth
In the twenty-eighth week of the
international egg laying contest an
English pen of White Leghorns, ten
layers, established a new high record
for a single week, having laid sixty
one eggs. A pen each of White and
Buff Leghorns tied for second place
with fifty-nine eggs each to their
credit; third, fourth and fifth places
for the week were also won by Leg
horns, the scores being 56 eggs, 55
and 54 eggs, respectively. It will be
observed that the Leghorns, tard<- in
the early months of the contest, are
now coming into their own.

ARE LATE HATCHES
SO VERY PROFITABLE?
Question Pops Up Year After
Among Poultrymen of
' Every year there comes up the ques
•no of whether late hatches are prof
ile, anil when. As a rule the early
and medium hatches sire larger re
turns than those near the end of the
season. At the same time there need
not be the same expense account for
the late as for the sarly hatches. The
equipment is on hand, is paid for, and
will stand idle if not used for May and
June hatches. The hens will be
broody, at any rate, the incubators
will lie cold in the cellar, and the
brooders will be out of commission.
If one has the time, the energy and
room to handle the chicks, it is worth
while to consider the matter of getting
out chicks in summer weather.
The commerccial poultryman wants
eggs every month In the year and is
often at a loss to know how to get
them in August, September and Oc
These late hatched pullets seldom
begin to lay before the middle of De
cember, but they make up for their
late start by doing good work through
the early autumn months of the fol
lowing year. Autumn eggs are worth
good money of late years, and these
late hatched pullets will help get it
for their owner. Pullets hatched in
June and July this year, well fed and
cared for. will give the desired eggs
in the Kali of next year, eggs that will
enable the poultryman to supply his
customers in the time of scarcity and
at the same time boost his bank ac
LAUGHS AT TIIE COLONIAL
This will be the last day to get a

Theater. In this spectacle the doctor
has turned the electric chair, usually
connected only with sadness, into a
laughing piece of furniture. Some six
or eight persons are put through a
course of sprouts at the Colonial each
time the doctors turns the electricity
on. Next week Bristol's ponies come
to the Colonial for a full week. This
is without any doubt the best equine
act on the stage. More than a dozen
pretty ponies are used and some ex
cellent drills and trick feats are gone
through. Every child in Harrisburg
should be allowed to see the ponies at

Don't Starve Little
Chicks Until They're
About 2 Days Old
Nearly every poultry keeper nowa
days withholds food from chicks the
flrst forty-eight hours of their lives.
h»s • ictice has been widely advo
cated by poultry experts for some
5 cars and the results obtained from
such practice have, been unflonniy
good. Prof. Harry Atvood, of tho
\A est Virginia experiment station
now says this is all wrong; that
chicks may be fed safely as soon as
they show an inclination to eat. This
Is what he said in a recent address
about this matter:
"The advice is frequently given to
feed chicks scantily during the flrst
few days or until the contents of the
yolk sack is fully absorbed. This ad
vice is like much other that is founded
entirely on theory. It is true that
there is » considerable amount of
nutritive material stored up In tho
yolk sack in the case of a chick just
hatched, but nature has provided this
reserve material to supplement, but
not to take the place of other food
materials that the chick is able to get
by its own efforts or by the elTorts of
the mother hen."
