A CLfiAN MAN.
Outside cleanliness U less than half
the battle. A man may scrub himself a
dozen times a day, and
•till be unclean. Good fIL
health means cleanliness "
not only outside, but in
side, it means a clean SnM
stomach, clean bowels,
clean blood, a clean
liver, and n«w, clean, m Kl-MRm
healthy tissues and &-ff
bers in «v*ry organ of *
the body. The man -Mfc
who is claan in this
way will look it and act lifli f
it. He will work with w
energy and think clean, clear, healthy
thoughts. , ....
He will never be troubled with liver,
lung, stomach or blood disorders. Dys
pepsia ana indigestion originate in
unclean stomachs. Blood diseases are
found where there is unclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis
(M*V mean unclean lungs. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery prevents these
M|nm diseases. It makes a man's
i JB insides clean and healthy.
It cleans the digestive or-
MK gana, makes pure, clean
Nfl blood, and clean, healthy

H ya flabby fat of corpulency,
but the firm flesh of health.
It restores tone to the nervous system,
and curas nervous exhaustion and
prostration. It contains no alcohol

My heart kept throbbing continually and I was

IN the wooing ud mating time of spring.
hrn bluebells blossom and bluebirds sag.
By the *hy Ktn turkey hidden away.
To greet May's coming, an egg there lay.
BUT the dy bird vainly seeketh a screen
In distant cover of vernal green.
For a bright eyed lassie pursues the quest
Till the discovert the stolen nest.
A bright eyed Isasia pursues the quest
CAREFULLY stepping, the daintily holds
Her bran-specked prize in her apron fold*
Till deftly and nugly consigned to rest
Under the sitting hen's ruffled breast.
AND the teeming month ol June shall tee
In the shade of the old sweet apple tree
A top-heavy bantling flutter and sprawh
Whenever it hears the good dame call.
IN the sultry days of ruddy July,
Roaming afield where the grass is high,
With a plaintive peep and vigilant peck.
Skulks something, princip'ly legs and neck.
WHEN leaves are falling and flowers have Bed,
In black and bronze and cardinal ted.
With s proud spread tail and a rampant wing
Struts the barnyard's pride, the menu's king.
MID the falling flake* ef a wintry night
The farmer looms in the lantern's light.
And with gleaming blade and a final flop
A foul deed's done for the poultry shop.
Tke farmer looms in the lantern's light.
AND gobbler that gobbled the early worm
It festively gobbled in his turn.
And the egg the sly turkey hid away
Proves to have been a Thanksgiving lay.
THANKSGIVING IN JAPAN.
«YsnLrta of thr Orient" Have a Day
of Their Own.
Americans have fondly Imagined that
Thanksgiving day is an institution pe
culiar to themselves. Not so. The won
derful "Yankees of the orieut," as the
Japanese have beeu called, are like us
In more ways than one. One of the re
semblances lies in the fact that both
countries have a national thanksgiving.
Perhaps It would be wore modest to
say that we are like the Japs iu this
respect, for they had their Thanksgiv
ing first. It Is not known Just how old
the institution Is with them, but it
must date back some centuries. The
day is celebrated 011 the 17th of Octo
ber, and thus, with them as with us, It
Is a thank offering for the harvests and
so occurs in the autumn.
The day opens In Japan by the mika
do going to the shrine before sunrise
and offering thanks and supplications
to Cod and to the spirits of his ances
tor*. After the rising sun, which is Ja
pan's emblem, conies out over the pic
turesque hilltops of the Island empire
a state banquet Is ordered, and similar
banquets are had all over the kingdom.
The Japs have 110 turkeys to grace the
occasion, but they have other tooth
some dishes peculiar to themselves. It
Is probable that they do not Indulge in
gluttony quite as much as we, for they
are 011 abstemious people. Then the
day. If not Inclement, Is spent In parks
and under the tr<>es.
It Is safe to say, however, that while
the Japanese Thanksgiving antedates
ours, nothing was known of It by our
Washington's First TbiinkairlTln*.
The initial national Thanksgiving
was held under a proclamation by
George Washington In the first year of
the new republic, 178S>. Washington
Issued one other proclamation of like
nature lu 1705. Adams also Issued one
or two, and Madison called for a day
of thanks after the close of the wnr of
1812. Ho far as presidential notice was
concerned, the day was allowed to
lapse, however, until permanently re
vived by Abraham Lincoln In 1803. In
1870 congress passed a law making the
day set apart by the prusldent as one
for offering thanks a national holiday.
Tbsultaslvlnsa of the llevolutlon.
There were eight Thanksgiving days
appointed by the Continental congress
for observance tr.iong the colonies dur
ing the war for Independence. After
the one called for the purpose of cele
(rating the peace treaty, which was
eld In 1784, the day was allowed to
lapse until 1789, when Washington
took his scat as president. Tho Idea In
these early days was to offer thanks on
some special occasion. That our ances
tors could find eight such occasions
during the dark days of the Revolution
shows that they were ready to be
thankful on somewhat slim provoca
tion. But It also shows that the gob
blers shed their blood for the country
as well as the men.
Ktnsfr Itlnifs Anions the Ancients.
The hands of female mummies found
In the tombs of Egypt are literally cov
ered with rings, In many Instances
there being from two to six on every
finger. In sotue cases these ornaments
are composed wholly of gold, but In
others, which probably represent all
that Is left of some poor man's wife or
daughter, the rings are brass, glass or
pottery ware. According to Josephus
and Herodotus, the Chaldeans and Per
sians and the Babylonians were all
very fond of rings and other personal '

Two or three species of birds are
known to accompany the crocodile
whenever ho appears abovo water.
Many a hunter has had his prospects
for a shot spoiled by the alarm given
to tho reptile by his watchful at
tendants When they see any one ap- !
proachlng they will fly at the croco- ;

Each of the twenty foot sections has
two twelve-light outside windows

between the windows, which is eight
feet long and three feet wide down

winter storms and cold nights by a
light frame covered with ten ounce
duck closely tacked on. This door or

in and up to the roof when open.

eleven Inches out from the wall, and
the space between the two la slxtsen

which is sufficient to prevent the cur

feet long and thirty Inches wide, hing

Great care was exercised In construct

Even In very severe weather, when
the temperature at night was consider
ably below rero and rose but little
above It during the day, with high
winds, the bedding on the floor and the
roosting closets remained dry and free
from offensive odors. The fowls laid
as well as their mates In a large
warmed house, their combs were red
and their plumage bright, and they
gave every evidence of perfect health
and vigor. The birds seemed to enjoy
coming out of the warm sleeping cloi

It Is customary to have the yards on
the south or sheltered side of poultry
houses to iifford protection during late
fall and enrly spring, when cold winds
are common. With the curtained front
house north yards only are to be used.
It being lielloved that the necessity for
getting the fowls as soon as possible
out of the open front house where they
are really subject to most of the out of
door conditions during the daytime Is
not so great as when tliey are confined
In closed houses with walls and glass
Himrs lle«|tilrr<l For I'ußltry.
There Is great difference of opinion
as to the best method of calculating
the number of fowls a poultry house
will accommodate. Tlic common meth
od of calculation is based upou floor
space, the height being considered Im
material. Houses built on this principle
are low and consequently the loaat ex
pensive that can bo coustructed. An
other method of calculation Is based
upon the amount of perch room, while
a third Is based upon the volume or
cubic contents. Various poultry men
recommend six, eight and ten cubic
feet of space per fowl.

should not be less than six pounds per
