A tragedy Is reported from a small
village In Hungary that reads like a
grim carnival of crime. Eighteen wives
In the community, It appears, were de
sirous of ridding themselves of their
husbands and they made a social func
tion out of the affair by simultaneously
and successfully administering poison.
The husbands must have been wholly
unsuspicious or complacent, for It ap
pears tliat all died promptly and with
out any protest or offer of compromise.
The words of the report, which are
''Eighteen procured poison which they
administered to their husbands wilh
fatal result," suggest the spectacle of
the husliands standing aligned to re
ceive the dose much like an array of
children preparing for an application
of sulphur In springtime. They may
have reciprocated the sentiments of
their better and energetic halves so
thoroughly that they were willing to
accept this means of escajie from fur-
tner eartmy troume. it is more prooa-
ble, however, that they were not aware
of the little surprise in store for them
and did not appreciate their proximity
to the end of life until It wo too late
to nrenare any adequate defense. West-
ern civilization has occasionally been
darkened by individual Instances of
this kind, but st no time has so large
an aggregation as eighteen wives hap-
peued to reach the poison mania at so
nearly the same time as to make a Jopit
exhibition out of the function. It Is a
very radical method for women to re
sort to when they happen to grow tired
of their husbands, but too spectacular
to warrant general popularity.

Transplanting Lartre Trea,
When a large tree Is removed from

should be taken up with it, so that the

Feiinr Value of A poles.
We do not think enough of the value
of tiie orchard for feeding it fruit
to the farm animals. Apples an? nu

tion of other food. The mlid acid of
them i.s excellent for the health of th

they will receive a feed of them at any

atid sprinkled with tneal of any kind
will belli much to add to the flow of
milk of the cows. Horses love thit
fruit, and they tend to help in the shed
ding of the coat, by their gently laxa
tive effect. When the selection Is made
for the spring planting, a few of some
of the sweet varieties, ripening from
the summer to the winter, should not
be forgotten for this use. We may be
gin with the early Sw eet Bough for the
lirst. then the autumn Sweet Bough
and the old Pumpkin Sweet, and for
later use there are the Talmatl Sweet
and the Wlnesnp, all productive sort

t lpenina: Cream.
A good way Is to hold the cream at a
temperature of sixty degrees for twelve
to fourteen hours after the first taste of
add is apparcut, and then Judgment,
formed from experience, will do the
rest. The method for warming th
cream for ripening b ail right, but It
will be necessary to keep the tempera
ture of the room at about the tempera
ture It Is desired to keep the cream.
For a starter, some ripened cream or
buttermilk from the prevlotw churning
Is often used to "slart" the ripening. A
U'tter starter Is made by taking some
skim milk from a healthy, fresh-milking
cow, warm It up to 85 or tX degrees,
and hold it at that tempreature till It
become thick. Put Into the cream
from three to five per cent, of this start
er, and If the cream Is held at HO to vi
degrees for twelve to fourteen hours
it will be found sufficiently ripenetl.
