Deeply folded in my brain,

As a breath blown to and fro,
Fragrant memories; fragrant mem

Only thoughts of you remain
In my heart where they have lain,
Perfumed thoughts of you, remain

That wraps thee in its silver light :
Good night ; no night is good for me

As that which made our love complete,
Till that last night when death shall be

When your wife calls at the daybreak,
"John, the snow Is two feet deep;
You had better get the shovel
And not waste tltb time In sleep,"
Then's the time o' day: dear brother,
That your heart It i. love doth glow
For the poet of the snowflako
Who wrote "I3oautlfu1, Beautiful
When your spinal column's cracking
And the shovellng'a going alow
To revive your freezing; spirits
Whistle "Beautiful, Beautiful Bnow."
When In sloppy slush you'ra flopping
Ana your socks begin to nil
And the Icy wavelets, gushing,
Splash you with an awful chill,
It Is then, when your physician
Hands In a tremendous bill,
That you love to hear the poat
Of the sparkling snowflako trill.
But perhaps you love the poem best,
This poem, "Beautiful Snow,"
When you zigzag down the street
And your feet from under go.
When your bald spot hits the stone
While you count the stars above,
It Is then a man can really talk
Of snow that poets love.

When turkeys, chickens, geese and
pigeons get bunged up with these yel
low tipped warts the sight Is enough to
break any fancier's heart The wart
generally first appears on the lower
eyelid nnd grows and closes the eye.
Unless localized It covers the head and
Is found especially on eyelids, base of
beak, orifices of nose, on comb and
wattles. Unlike favus, It seldom af
fects the feathered parts except with
pigeons, where It often Is found under
the wings. When it takes a diphthe
ritic turn, spreading over the mem
branes of nostrils and mouth, it Is dif
ficult to cure. This phase of the dis
ease Is fatal to pigeons.
Occasionally a vigorous fowl will
overcome tho disease without treat
ment. The warts dry up and drop off.
This Is seldom, and tho treatment must
be often continued for two or three
weeks. Old stock Is seldom affected
unless weak or through wounds.
Young and Into hatched fowls are par-
tlcular victims. Warm sections are
scourged with it, and it is most com
mon in the fall. Wet seasons, leaky,
dirty poultry houses and pigeon lofts,
where damp droppings rot, are breed

Wash head with nn equal part mix

bluestone (sulphate of copper) to the
warts. Use the lump or dissolve n

Touch warts with turpentine. Apply
solution of Iodine and 12 per cent car
bolic ncld. Be careful not to get the
latter remedy into the eyes and use
caution lest you carry disease to the
children or to the rest of the flock.

My Dear Elsa I have Just come
back from a week end spent with Eli
nor N. You know the N.'s have re
cently finished their new house at
Short Hills, and When they ore not
exploring all the unexplored regions
of the globo they will be located at
this delightful colonial abode, situated
In one of Jersey's most exclusive spots.
Tho place will be In the market a year
from now, 1 nm absolutely certain, but
for the time being they nre perfectly
bewitched with their latest architec
tural achievement. I wonder why the
"moving on" nplrlt does get such n
grip on Americans. I reckon it's be
cause wc are so bent upon improving
ourselves we just can't rest. We cer
tainly do lack repose as a nation; but,
us the English complacently hint, we'll
"arrive" when wo get over the novelty
of having barrels of money to dlsposo
of as the whim seizes us. But I
haven't time this morning to moralize,
for I must tell you nbout Elinor's bed
room, which is the sweetest thing you
ever imagined. Tltania's bower, Mrs.
George Gould's famous boudoir nt
Georgian Court, the magnificent Lake-
wood palace, isn't n patch on this
apartment In point of artistic concep
tion. I couldn't shut my little peepers
in fiuch n beauty spot. The wonder of
it would keep me awake. Raving, as
usual! Now, listen to how It's "done"
and you'll rave with me.
To begin with, the room Is a good
sized square apartment I loathe a
great barn of a bedroom, don't you?
It started out for a "square deal," but
got sidetracked at one end, where a
slightly bowed diamond paned window
breaks up tho architectural precision.
Under Elinor's supervision you know
she's artistic to the finger tips a New
York interior artist, a woman by the
way, did the decorating. A gray and
pluk scheme was selected, nnd to carry
out the misty, hazy atmosphere that
was planned to float o'er this Eden
the floor was first painted and then
ftnnraoled a soft French gray and partly
covered with a square rug of silvery
gray green wllton. The walls were
hung with a pale gray cartridge paper
suggesting tho tone of the floor. Now
comes evidence of the dlvlno afflatus
possessed by the decorator.
Departing from the commonplace
frieze, this original craftswoman ran
a stiff border of pink hollyhocks Imme
diately under tho place dedicated to
this piece of mural decoration. Where
the frieze wasn't, to bo Irish, was a
blurry effect in grays that melted into
tho celling, rather indicating the gath
ering of a storm with the sun shining
through. On either side of the dress
lng table, which was of gray enameled
s.itlnwood, were arranged silver can
dclabra In branch style, fitted with
electric light, softened by shades in
the form of pink hollyhocks. The sin
gle bed was of the same wood; also n
smull colonial table, on which were
placed the night light of sliver, with
hollyhock shade, nnd a few of Elinor's
favorlto books bound In gray suede.
Talking nbout genius, It surely was
burning when It came to the dressing
up of this bed. A spread and bolster
roll of white handkerchief linen edged
with deep cluny lace and embroidered
with a row of the pink hollyhocks was
designed for this particular couch and
cnrrled Into effect.
Hnvo I told you why the old kitchen
garden flower wns selected as a motif?
No? How stupid, for hereby hangs a
tale! You should and must know that
the decorators imported Just two pat
terns of n Frinch cretonno in gray be
sprinkled with tho dear, stiff old po
sies, and ono of these lengths Elinor
annexed nnd hud her couch, easy
chairs and window scat upholstered In
It. Naturally the blossoms became the
theme of the furnishings. But, to como
back to tho spread, when It was laid
on tho bed it became a whlted sepul
cher, nnd, as an editor friend of mine
says, "It hit one" In the eye." Some
thing had to be done. Sleepless nights
ensued for Elinor and tho Interior dec
orator. Like Sentimental Tommy, they
"found a why," and such a funny way!
It was decided the spread had to be
dyed a pale gray, the right sort of
nuance to tono In with the other ef
fects. But how get It? I believe In
"leadings," both In things divine and
material, and an edrthly manifestation
tool; place in this Instance. One even
ing Elinor had for the moment forgot
ten the spread and was getting ready
for a dinner party. When her maid,
frock' In hand, was about to slip over
her head a Worth creation she grace
fully dodged the service, flew to a bun
dle of old newspapers that happened
to be In the room and, while Maria
looked on aghast, tore them up, tossed
them in the basin and poured boiling
water over them. Impatiently walking
the floor for a second, she returned to
the experiment, lifted the paper from
the water with tho aid of a tooth
brush handle and gazed in ecstatic
rapture at the grayish solution left in
the basin. When Marie had brought
her tho spread and bolster roll milady
gathered tho embroidered part of tho
work up in her hands and dipped the
rest of the linen In tho water. After
sousing the material up nnd down, he
boid a lovely tone of gray was the re
sult! Satisfied with tho undertaking,
Elinor allowed herself to bo dressed
for the dinner and departed In high
Next day the tidies were treated to
the same kind of bath. Tidies, you
say, who uses anything so antiquated?
We up to date Gothamltes do, my
dear. They've been the smart caper
all winter, but not tho antimacassar
of hideous English origin. No; the
new affairs are of the sheerest hand
kerchief linen and are used merely on
the arms of upholstered furniture.
Tlicro were no pictures on the walls of
this exquisite room. In fact, nothing
of ii pictorial uaturo was attempted
nnvo tho portraits of tho master of the
house and Elinor's small girl, Kath
leen, framed In dull silver, that were
to bo soon on the dressing table. At
tho bow window woro sash curtains of
gray brusscls net and long hangings
of cretonno lined with pink silk. The
toilet things were of perfectly plain
dull silver, each article decorated with
a stugle hollyhock. When I tell yon
that the doors entering the boudoir
and bath were of plate glass with dull
silver knobs you can gather, I hope, a
faint Idea of the attractiveness of this
I know how fond you are of needle
work, so when my hostess showed me
n tea cloth she had Just bought I took
in all the points so I could pass them
along. The cloth was a large oval af
fair of white handkerchief linen, mean-
urlng probably two yards around. A
superb piece of handmade Russian lace
was used as a finish. For about a
depth of two feet at intervals around
the cloth were the most natural stalks
of wild carrot. The blossom part was
worked In tufta of mercerized white
cotton and the stalks and spiky leaves
In a pale green. The flowers were
raised so high and were so true to na
ture that one instinctively looked for
the funny littlo black beauty spot that
is to be found In all wild carrot flow
ers. Between the bunches of bios
soma were medallions the size of a
bread and butter plate of Russian lace.
The whole thing was gorgeous and yet
In perfect taste.
Hand wrought Jewelry is the fad of
the moment and classes are being
formed for courses of instruction dur-
lng Lent, one of which I have Joined,
but all I expect to accomplish is a
much battered up pair of hands. Some
of the reproductions of ancient amu
