Polaco Cars for Hens.
Ono of tho latest improvements lit tho
transportation of poultry is a patent palaco
car on tho Lackawanna railroad, designed
for tho couvoyauco of llvo fowl. Tho car Is
two feet higher than tho ordluary freight
enr, contains 110 compartments, each ono
four feet square, in a scries of eight decks,
with an aisle runiug through it crosswiso
and another ono lengthwise. Tho capa
city of tho car Is front 3,500 to 4,000 fowls,
according to tho season of tho year. Dy
a s) stem of drop decks tho fowls aro
loaded and unloaded at tho bottom ot tho
car, tho sides of which aro of strong wiro
netting, lit which aro tho doors to tho several
compartments. On tho top of tho car iu tho
center is a water tank largo cuough to sup
ply n full load on n Journey of 2,000 miles.
Each compartment is supplied on thrco sides
with abundant food mid water, by a system
cf troughs nnd hoso that Is easily worked on
tho inside, io matter how great n speed tho
train may bo going at. Tho food is carried
in a box or tank beneath tho car. Hallway

Thero aro four typo colors of hair wbito,
blonde, black nnd brown and each ot theso
has been subdivided into sixteen different
bbades. Tho commonest types aro black and
brown, and theso uro cheap. Golden brown
Is much In favor, as Is puro black, or what Is
called bluo black. Next to puro whlto hair
tho demand is for hair of tho color of virgin
gold. There nro many In aids madoot hair
colored to meet tho demand with certain
preparations, but they prove unsatisfactory.
Many foolish women liavo Bought to cbango
tho color of their own tresses, but thoy liavo
uniformly repented tbo attempt. A lino suit
of hair of tho purest blondo typo will sell for
from 1,000 francs to 2,600 francs. It la said
