Before a large audience,
evening In City Hall, under the aus
pices of the Wayne County Poultry
Association, Prof. T. F. McGrew,
principal of the School of Poultry
Husbandry at the I. C. S.. Scranton,
delivered his popular lecture on "In

President of the society, E. Kins

The lecture In part was as fol

"Women have been the most suc

Women are always careful and at

Success in the poultry business
comes from knowing how. If you

money out of it. About nine out of

The test of any person's ability in
handling poultry is how many eggs

In "pickin' hens," a mighty good
rule to follow is: First, a hen with
plenty of breast development, where
she can store her food. A narrow
breasted hen can't eat enough to
keep herself warm over night. Sec
ondly, she must be wide between the
thighs, so as to have plenty of room
for tho egg-producing organs to do-
velon in there. Thirdly, there must
be just as much of the hen back of
the thigh-lino as before, so that sue
may bo evenly poised.
About an egg- every other day Is
xbout the best you can expect. If
you can get ten or twelve dozen eggs
yearly a hen, you are doing the best
you can expect to do.
Never let the huckster come on
your place and pick out your best

MAN'S FACE MADE NEW
PATIENT, TERRIBLY DISFIGUR
ED, PLEASED WITH SUR
Surgeons In St. John's Hospital,
Long Island City, It became known
last night, almost have finished
building an entirely new face on a
patient. They have been at work
on the task since May last, and they
hope In several more months to send
their patient Into the world a fair
ly good-looking man. They expect
to have the patient in such condition
that, despite a terrible accident he
suffered, he may mingle with his
fellow men feeling that he looks like
other mortals and is not an object
to make even his friends Bhrink
from sight of him.
The man who Is getting a new
face after almost having lost one Is
iimothy Martin of No. 40 Willow
street, Corona, Long Island. Martin
was hurt when employed by the
Ferguson Construction Company In
the Sunnyslde yards of the Pennsyl
vanla Railroad. He fell,, face down
ward into cog wheels, and before
tho machinery could be stopped his
face practically waB ground off
His mouth and nose were gone and
tho muscles of his face were cut so
badly he could not eat or talk. Ho
was taken to tho hospital in what
was thought to be a dying condition
Martin did not die. Instead, ho
displayed remarkable vitality and
gained in strength so fast tho sur
geons were presented with a new
problem. The question "was how
tho wounds should be treated, and
whether the face should he porinlt
ted to heal and he almost shapeless,
Dr. John A. Bodlne, Dr. Frank C
Smith, Dr. T. T. Daly and Michael
McMahon of the hospital held a con
BUltatlon. They decided to do their
best to make a new face for Martin
The first step was to mako a new
mouth and to build muscles around
It so that Martin could learn again
to talk and eat. Gradually the new
mouth was shaped, the surgeons add-
ing muscles taken from other parts
of tho body and knitting them to
the muscles of the face.
Martin got finally so he could eat
with ease and talk almost as well
as before the accident. Skin was
grafted to the mouth and the cheeks
with such deftness that the lower
part of the face, it is said, Is almost
tho same as that of an ordinary

Andy Toth Is 52; he looks 70. He
was sentenced to tho pneltentlary for
life back In 1802 as the man who had
killed a mill hand named Qulnn by
striking him in tho back with a pick.
A fellow-countryman named Steve
Toth confessed at his home In Hun
gary two months ago that he had
killed Qulnn and that Andy Toth had
been pointed out to the Coroner's
Jury by mistake. Governor Tenor
acted at once, granting a pardon.
"I never saw the man 1 am sup
posed to have killed," said Andy
Toth, who wept during most of his
ride downtown. "I do not expect
any money from tho State. The
State could not help It that I was
convicted. It was not their fault.
Mr. Carnegie might help me some,
though. I worked tho best year of
my life In his mill, and It was in his
mill that Qujnn was killed. If I
could see Mr. Carnegie I would ask
him for a little farm where I could
go with my wife and end my days."
"Do you feel angry toward Peter

us who sees that justice Is done."
