SHIP FOUND ON BIG ICEBERG
Captain of Steamer Sights Lartje Mass
of Ice Carrying Thrce-Masted
For centuries mystery ships hnve
Balled the se:is, guided only hy the
winds of clinnce. One of them was
found hy u .steamer cnptiiln rounding
the Horn recently. While groping his
tray Into the open, n gigantic mass of
Ice carrying n large tliree-ninsted
echooncr, with Its bouts still In the
clefts, was sighted. Kfforts were made
to tlnd the survivors, hut no trace of
them was discovered. Another sea
tragedy was added to the already long
llfet of those as yet unsolved when a
Greenland whaler came upon a strange
looking derelict, battered und weather
worn, apparently built In the last cen
tury and Ice-hound for years. A hoard
ing crew found In the cabin the body
of a young woman, preserved by the
arctic frosts. Near u long-dead lire

Odd Musical Instrument.
The ordinary handsaw has appeared
as a musical Instrument. One seeker
after novelties uses a saw us n violin.
After long experience and untiring
practice he has actually succeeded In
getting an agreeable music from the
lie holds the saw handle between
his logs, holds the tip of the saw In
one hand, and works the usual violin
how with the other. The vibrating
steel blade emits soft, appealing notes,
the pitch of which Is varied by chang
ing the curvature of the blade. All
sorts of queer effects can be got by
adept manipulation of the blade.
.Sometimes the music resembles the
human voice; ngaln It has the weird
wall of the Hawaiian ukelele.
When All Signed With Cross.
In olden times the signature of the
cross, now mnde by persons who arc
unable to write, was not ennflued to
the Illiterate class. Among the Saxons
the mark of the cross, as an nttestatlon
of good faith of the person signing,
was required to bo attached to the sig
nature of those who could write, as
well as to btnml in the place of the
signature of those who could not write.

Convert OkF Buildings
Into Houses for Fowls
(Pirpattd l) the I'll I tut Stntra Department
uf Acrlculturp )
Many f-rms have old style closed-tip
poultry houses, with poor light and
eutllatlon, or old sheds and other
buildings of little use for other pur
poses, that can be remodeled or built
over with little dlllleulty Into satlsfue
toiy poultry houses for the Hocks this
winter. The size and the shape of tho
buildings makes little difference, says
the Fnlted States Department of Agri
culture, but the essential factors are
dryness, good entilatloa, freedom
from drnfiM, plenty of sunshine, and
oom enough to allow tl e birds to move
about with freedom and comfort.
If new houses are to be built or old
buildings comerted Into poultry
house', locate them on IiIkIi or sloping
ground if possible, but nlwu.vs on dry
and well-drained soil. The amount of
floor space to be allowed each fowl
varies soiuewl at with conditions, hut
on a latnfor where the bin's can he
out of doors nearly every day the de
partment has found that about 2V&
square feet of floor space per bird In
Hocks of 'JO Is enough. In a vlllago
or city or In a climate where there
is a good deal of snow, making It nec
essary to conllne the bltds closely, 4
or fi square feet per bird Is needed.
The Interior of the house should l.e
simple, convenient, and easy to clean.
The converted poultry house may or
may not have a floor. If the house U
on dry. sandy soli a dirt floor Is usually
quite satisfactory although often morn
damp than board or cement lloors.
Fresh gravel and sand must be added
from time to time to keep them sani
tary. If board lloors are used, make
them tight and smooth so as to make

slide, build hoard lloors 8 or 10 Inches
from the ground to allow a circulation
of air and to prevent rats from har
boring tinder them. Cement floors, es
pecially for large houses, are quite
satisfactory, as they keep rats out and
last much longer than board floors.
They must be kept well covered with
Utter, however, department workers
say, to make them warm and com
fortable for the flock.

the numerous kennels near the city re

filtered the yard, :tf dogs', ranging
from the grown-ups to pups, let loose
a wild barrage of barking, yapping
and whining, lie picked the least

feed all these animals?" "Well," the
owner of the kennels replied, "we feed
them bread, meat, rice and milk. They
get better food, I suppose, than some

Corn Fodder as Litter
Is Excellent for Hens
Litter Is nlmost Indispensable In
every henhouse where eggs are desired,
as well as healthy and contented
fowls. Some farmers complain nbout
using good wheat or oats straw for tho
hens to scratch In. In this event, cut
corn fodder makes an excellent nnd
lasting litter for the poultry house
and even If one inuct pay to have the
fodder cut, It Is cheaper than other Ut
ters. When cut up, ten bundles or corn
fodder makes enough litter to cover
400 square feet of floor space. For the
same space, when straw Is used, nt
least two hales would be required, and
this would cost several times as much
ns the corn fodder. Fodder Is good not
only because of Its cheapness, but also
because the hens like to eat the pieces
of leaves, thus obtaining somo bulky
food, which Is often lacking In poultry
