It was the drug clerk's turn to tell a

"Perhaps I can do nothing bettor," he
began, "than to tell you the secret of my
good health. It is a story that I bsve
told to many, recently, and as it resulted
In good in each cane, It may be worth yonr
while to listen to it. To begin with, I was
not always strong and robust aa I am now.
Long hours of work and hard study hsd
left me in s wretched condition. Fright
ful, lingering headaches found me a ready
victim, and at times I was so nervous that
the dropping of a pin would cause me to
vive a violent start, and then I would be
lened with a fit of trembling that was, to
6ut it mildly, exceedingly bothersome.

my hand would shake aathongh I had the
chills, and if it was a powder thai 1 was

went from bad to worse, and I soon real

thus be set into the bolder on the out

a quarter of the way round and hook

pen. When removed, a button keeps
the calf from getting his head out
through the opening. Such a contriv

considerable saving of time as well as

Careful tests were conducted by Prof.

there Is nothing In the records of tem
perature that would Indicate, either at
the time of the test or later, that tuber
culin had In any way proved Inimical
to the general health. The decline in

The Potato ling's Diet.
Many people who are not botanists
do not imagine that the potato and the
tomaVi are at all related. Kut the po

plant is included in his depredations,
and gardeners who grow either toma

Farsn Hoaae Ventilation.
The cellar must be ventilated direct
ly Into the base of the chimney. The
kitchen chimney Is best, tor It always
haa a draft both summer and winter.
This Is easily arranged by having an
opening eight Inches square near the
bottom, which will also serve as a
means by which soot and ashes may be
removed from the chimney. When re
pairing my hanae some years ago, I
arranged it In this way, with the result
that the cellar Is entirely purified from
the close and unwholusome air that
seemed to pervade It before, especially
during the winter soson. In faot It ac
complishes, to some extent, ventilation
of the whole house, for by this means
the cellar air never ascends to the
rooms, but Instead the air from the
house is drawn downward Into the cel
lar and finally passes out through the
A Hummer or Winter Hen-Honae.
Here is a device for converting a
summer henhouse Into a winter one,
and vice versa, which Is simple, cheap
and effective. The house is built In
the usual way, the walls consisting
largely of 1x3 vertical strips 2 Inches
apart. The device is for closing or
opening these 2 Inch cracks at pleas
ure. It Is applied to an end wall, for
example, as follows: Go Inside the
house, cut other 1x3 strips of proper
length, set them up against and coin
ciding with the corresponding strips
of the wall, the top end of each being
cut to correspond with slope of roof,
and lacking about 1 Inch of reaching
the rafter to which the wall strips are
nulled. Fasten 8 or 10 of these strips

securely Into a frame or sash (see cut),
by nailing the battens bb along their
ends at top and bottom. Then nail on
tlie cleats a a at top and bottom to hold
the sash In place. The strips of the
sash now coinciding with those of the
wall, the 2-lnch cracks between them
are open, but by sliding the sash to
the left 1V4 Inches the cracks are
closed. The sash c In cut Is slid back
or closed, d Is open. The cracks may
thus be closed or opened, entirely or
partially, at pleasure, by sliding the
sash back or forth.
Have a Few Hheep on the Farm.
Every farmer should have a few
sheep in order to save much of the ma
terial grown that should be wasted.
Sheep will eat a great many plants
which cattle reject, and they graze
close to the ground. Young ami ten
der weeds are delicacies to sheep, and
they therefore assist lu ridding the
fields of such pests. A small flock of
mutton sheep should be kept. If for no
better purpose than to supply the fam
ily with choice meat.
Springs for the Fruit Wagon.
Iu large commercial orchards It Is
well understood that the Jolting of
fruit when carried lu the solid, spring
less box wagon causes injury, entail
ing great loss to the selling value of the
fruit. The cut from Farm and Home
Illustrates a simple method of arrang
ing springs with a wagon hotly suffi
ciently sensitive for the carrying of
the most delicate fruit The springs
may be made of vertical colled wire,
securely fastened to the cross piece
which Is nttached to the underside of
the body of the wagon mid held In
place by uprights at the ends. Fruit

A Race for Life.
In August of '66 1 was running a
bull train between Helens and -Fort
Benton. After going about two miles
I shot an old doe antelope, accompanied
by two fawns, and I determined that I
would have all three of those animals,
and gave chase, firing whenever I could
get within range, until I had exhausted
my ammunition. This was before the
days of breech-loading guns. I finally
got the two fawns and tied them on be
hind my saddle and started to catch np
with tbe "train." 1 was as much as
six miles behind, without a cap or
bullet, only two empty six-shooters and
a rile. I noticed that my saddle pony
kept turning to the left. Finally I
looxed over that way myself, and could
see the head and shoulders of a person
down in the coulee. 1 spurred into a
gallop, and in a moment could see that
there were eight persons instead of one,
and also that they were Fiegan Indians
in full war paint and feathers. They
immediately gave chase, and for the
next six miles occurred one of the moat
exciting races that I ever took part in.
Seeing that tbe weight of tbe fawns
was telling on the speed of my horse, I
cut them loose, and at tbe same time
threw away my overcoat, and taking
tbe ramrod out of my rifle I used it as
a whip and gained a little on my pur
suers. The last two miles of tbe race
was in plain view of the train. The
train halted, and I supposed that one
of the drivers would come to my as
sistance, but no relief came; they drop
ped their whips and jaws at the same
time and waved their hats and halloed
Runl" I waa doing the best I could.
The Indians chased me to within about
150 yards of the train, when Bob
Chestnut, now of ChMtnut valley
came In sight from the direction of
Sun river and opened fire on the In
dians. They stopped chasing me and
ran the other way. It never occurred
to tbe drivers that they had guns until
after Mr. Chestnut commenced firing.

Thirty-two women got on the train
at Tacoma. They had been attending

on their way to Portland. It seemed
that one of their number bad ahied li e

one station to another until she waa
pretty well done. They kicked on
what she ate and what she wore and
what she didnt wear. Her shoes were
too small; ber feet were too big, and

hurry through this car aa if they were
afraid of something. Two of the del

thing to eat while the rest ate out of

out the thirty remaining jumped on to
them without mercy; the stuff was off
about tbe track-shier; they ran their
age up and their characters down, they
accused them of having their hired
girls' dresses on and said one of tbera
tried to make a mash on a Tacoma po
