onllroly upon personal Ideas and preju
dices. A grant many families do not
approve of It. and under no circum
stances would ihy nppenr In somber
garments heavily trlmmod with crape.
It U said, In defense of this custom,
that It saves comment and question;
but this, as a rule, Qtnottnts to vory
little as a reason. One's (rlenda aro
llkoly to know of Illness and death, and
it la thought eomowhat ostentatious to
ndvertiso by deep mourning tno fact
lhat ono has met with tho. Iocs of a
near rolativc. In such occurrences
strangers aro not supposed to have any
Interest, thereforo the evident auper
flulty of mourning bo far aa the public
aro concerned. It certainly can make
very llttlo difference In ono'a grief
what the attire may he, and It is an
unquestioned fact that too much time
and money aro spent on tho prepara
tion 'of mourning dresses for such oc
casions. Tho only npology for thin
can be that It furnishes tho beieaved
ones with a much needed diversion.
This, however, would bo much better
If taken n another way. Hut tho fact
remains that mourning dresses and
crapo arc worn by many people, es-
tent seem to set the pneo for tho
world. Thcro is very llttlo chango in
mourning materials. For years tho
Priestley sllk-warp Henrietta cloth
has boon tho btnndard fabric for first
mourning dresses. It is, however,
curious that while this was originally
a material for mourning, Its uso has
becoino bo general that any woman
of any ago may wear it, oven though
Bho habitually Indulges in tho bright
est colors or wears colors with It.
Thero Is nothing bo durable, handsome
and economical in the long run.
Tlio Tender Brntiniont.
A. B. C. asks tho following questions:
"Is it right for a young man to show
affection for a young woman unless
ho moans it? What should she do If he
shows dccldod evidences of affetIon for
her, then, upon leaving tno place whero
sho lives, writes to her and other young
ladles In precisely the same way?"
Answer: In a caso of this kind there
are several things to bo considered, In
tho first place. It is rather hard to draw
tho lino between genutuo good-will and
what young women call affection or
lovo. A young man may find great
pleasuro In a young woman's society,
may really enjoy her company, com
radeship and conversation, and may
plainly show that ho doe3 so, without
giving any actual evidence of what peo
ple call love. Thero is a great differ
ence In persons about matters of this
sort. Somo aro moro demonstrative
than others, some may go through an
entire coason of courtship and finally
marry without half as much appcaranco
of affoctlon as is exhibited by others
who havo no serious intentions what
ever, It is scarcely worth while to
wasto ono's time on a young man who
talks and writes to two or three young
women in proclsely tho same way, If
ho professes to love tbem. A man who
will do this Is beneath contempt, and
A. B. C will do very well to waste nt
timo on him. But beforo she takes any
decided stops, it might bo well for her
to sit down aud carefully study tho
caso and seo If sho has made any mis
take in tho matter, Thcro aro a great
many young girls who fancy that every
man who looks at them ln'an Interested
Sill jf t
tvay, treats them wH or finds any
plcasuru In their society Is in lovo with
thorn. It Is just as well not to Imaglno
that lovo exists until there Is some very
positive cvldonco of it If young glrla
would lako this view of the case thoy
would savo themselves and everybody
else a great deal of trouble.
Haw Shoulder Capo-
A pretty variation on tho round
shoulder capo is ono that has ends
crossing In front llko a Mario An
toinette fichu. To tho woman who has
a pretty waist aud handsomely curved
figure, this fashion is less ungenerous
than tho round cape, which, no matter
how stylish in itself, hides tho figure
A I.nto 1'reiich Creation.
For tho matter of hats tho varieties
aro legion; but one of tho oddest yet
shown is an immonso brimmed, shirred
hat, made of soft tan brilllantlno, to
match tho frock; tho whole, tho travel
ing rig for a prospective bride. It
sounds horribly clumsy, brilllantlno Is
so wlrynjjdjpplJcBriisclf so poorly to
'SorrToTuli; but when turned out In a
beautiful state of finish by a clover
French mllllnor, its beauty is unques
tionable and Is an ndorablo adjunct to
a natty traveling costume. Tho illus
tration shows tho hat In question. It
flares broadly at tho sides and has a
soft llttlo puff all about tho edge. Tho
crown Is finished-In tho same manner.
Diroctly In front rests an Immonso
chou, with two massive loops sticking
out nt both sides, giving a wonderfully
broad effect to tho affair. Tho hat pins
aro two rhlnostono balls, tho only bit
of ndornment about the chapcau. Tho
bodlco of the frock also caught my eyo,
from Its deeded oddity. It fitted the
form snugly to tho waist, and was cut
with tho broad back pieces bo in vogue;
from tho waist it flared out In smart
box plaits, showing a lining of vivid
scarlet silk. A broad folded belt of tan
satin encircled tho waist and fastened
with two tiny gold clasps In front.

is attended to. As
evldenco of this wo
quote tho following
description of tho
silos of tho well
known .dairyman John Gould of Ohio
as given by L. S. Hardin in Homo and
Mr. Gould rather favors building the
silo in tho barn, as lhat saves a roof
and gives outside protection, tho silo
being merely a big box. Tho room
taken up supplies so much more feed
than tho same space occupied by the
hay that tho appnrent loss 1b a real
gain. Here not stono foundation Is
needed. All that Is required Is to dig
a trench tho size of tho silo, largo
enough to receive a 10-inch square sill
and bed it in mortar underneath and
on the sides to firm It. Set up tho 2x6
Inch studding 18 Inches apart from cen
ter to center and lino up on tho inBldo
with inch lumber 10 inches wide, cross
lcckcd at tho corner and so securely
that it will be impossible to pull It
apart. Cover on the insldo of tho first
lining, with cheap tarred paper, then
run on another layer of'tho same kind
of lumber; put it on with a half lap, bo
as to break tho Joint in tho first layer
and nail well with 10-penny wlro nails.
To mako sure that tho corners aro
tight have a 3x3-lnch scantling sawed
through cornerwlso and nail theso Into
the corners with a backing of paper
well painted with gas tar. Tho sllago
Is taken out with small doors unhing
ed, set in from inside. Tho pressure of
tho silage holds them securely In place,
and theso are taken out one by ono as
the feeding of the sllago progresses.
When tho walls of the silo aro finished
and painted with a paint mado of 3
quart3 of gas tar and 2 quarts of gaso-
Hno well mixed tnklng care that no
fire comes near It in mixing or apply
ingthe floor may ho mado by drawing
tho soil from the center of tho silo up
to and pounding down ngalnst tho side
walls until tho floor Is In tho form of
a kettle. Wotted when pounded, and of
clay, this makes ono of tho best floors.
Mr, Gould has two siloes of this kind
built eight years ago, holding 200 tons
of sllago that did not cost ?100. He
uses no coverings or weight to tho en
silage, but when tho heat begins to ap
pear he scatters evenly over tho top of
sllago 10 or 15 palls of water, which
causes an air-tight mold to form, which
answers every purposo and ho says
causes tho waste of less than a wagon
bed full of silage. Surely any farmer
could mako such a bllo as hero describ
ed at less than $50 aptoce, of 100-ton
capacity; this would bo 7 or 8 acres of
corn fodder per silo.
D.n;or from ailltc.
Tho Massachusetts society for tho
promotion of agrlculturo ha3 recently
published In book form tho results of
Us thorough investigation as to tho In
fectiousness of milk from tuberculous
cows. Tho object was to determine,
especially, whether tho infectious ele
ment of tuberculosis over existed In
milk from tuberculous cowb whoso ud
ders are apparently healthy. Somo of
tho roaults, briefly, are as follows:
Elgbty-olght guinea pigs wero Inocu
lated with milk from 15 cows; tubercu
losis was found In twclvo of these pigs,
after using milk from six different
cows. Ninety-five rabbits vero In
oculated, and six of them found with
tuberculosis. 3111k of tuborculous
cows was fed. to 48 rabbits, and two
showed tuberculosis. Twelve pigs
were fed on the milk and flvo produced
posltlvo results, with suspicion In two
others. Twenty-ono calves produced
eight with tuberculosis. Circular let
ters wero sent out to physicians and
voterlnary Burgeons, asking whether
thoy had ever seen a caso of
tuberculosis that could bo traced
to tho milk supply. Answers
wero received from 991, of which
58 had seen or suspected the ex
istence of such cases. This Is less
than G par cent, which tho trustees re
gard as remarkably small. Tho con
clusions of tho report aro as follows:
1. Whllo tho transmission of tuber
culosis by milk Is probably not the
most Important means by which the
dlseaso Is propagated, It Is somothlng
to bo guarded against most carefully.
2. Tho possibility of milk from tu
berculous udders containing the Infec
tious element is undeniable.
3. With tho evldenco hero presented,
It is equally undenlablo that milk from
diseased cows with no appreciable le
Elon of the udder may, and not infre
quently does, contain tho bacillus ol
4. Thereforo all such milk Ehould be
condemned for food.
A writer on poultry topics, A. M.
Some j'cars since a tabulated state
ment wont tho rounds of tho press,
showing that a hen could not possibly
lay moro thnn COO eggs In nor natural
llfo. Tho number was parceled out as
follows: The first jear after birth. 15
to 20; Etcond year, 100 to 120; third
year. 120 to 135; fourth year, 100 to 115;
fifth year, CO to 80; sixth year, 50 to
CO; peventh year, 35 to 40; eighth year.
15 to 20. This table was assumed nnd
based upon a microscopic investigation
of the ovarium of a hen. by some
European savant. For once, science
Was wrong. Recently a number or per
Fona have kept careful count and havo
found an ogg production of nearly
1,000, during tho eight or nine years of
a hen's llfo. I, myself, have had a yield
of over 360 eggs per hen in two years,
averaging 175 yearly from a flock of
Crevecoeurs, and my Brown Leghorns
yearly oxceed that record. Two years
since, from a flock of Gl hens at first,
of which two died in February and
March, and 34 wero killed for tho tablo
prior to July, I gathered between Jan
uary 1 and September 1, C.257 eggs.
Taking 43 as the avcrago number of
hens through tho season, this gives an
avcrago of 145 eggs per hen per sea
son of eight months. Of these CI hens
25 were Brown Leghorns, G Light Brnh
mas, 4 Plymouth Rocks, and tho rest
wero crosses and mongrels. Had tho
flock been all Leghorns I have no
doubt but that tho average would have
been fully 175 eggs per hen.
This production of eggs may bo
forced by sultablo feeding, and, In
breeding for profit, It should bo done.
Assuming tho tablo given abovo to bo
correct, in proportion of tho eggs laid
at certain ages of tho fowl, it follows
that to get tho full value of tho egg
production we must keep henB until
tho fourth year. If, by proper feeding
nnd attention, wo can cauBo her to lay
three-fourths or more of that posslblo
number during tho first two years, wo
can then fatten her for market, and
fill her place In tho yard by younger
fowls, to go through tho sarao forcing
process. It Is folly to feed and keep
a hen for four years, when tho bulk of
her product may bo obtained from her
In half that time. I should, thereforo,
advlso fitting her for market, as soon
as she has finished tho best of her sec
ond season's laying, which is usually
about June. The cocks may ho kept
till three years old, if desired, but
usually two years will bo found tho
most profitable age to market them.
In tho "old time" it was a good
flock of hens that averaged 50 eggs per
annum. Now, an avcrago of 100 Is es
teemed a low figure, 150 per head be
ing considered the nccssary number to
entitle a flock to bo called good layers.
Wo frequently hear of instances whore
an avcrago of 200 and upwards havo
been produced by small-sized flocks,
but these aro exceptions to tho rule.
Hooping Off I.lco.
M. W. Nolhart, of Nebraska City,
gives tho following in tho Nebraska
Farmer as his method of keeping his
poultry house free from lice:
"My chicken houses all contain earth
floors. I drivo stakes In tho ground
for roosts to rest on, boro holes through
roost polo (which is a 2x4 ripped in
two, making a pole 2x2), and into top
of stakes allowing a wlro splko to go
through roost and into the stake. This
will hold the roost in place.
"Don't allow tho roosts to touch
your building anywhere. I leave theso
stakes about two feet high. Now you
know full well that theso mites always
leave tho chicken towards tho dawn of
morning and remain on tho roost and
in tho building until evening, when
they again attack tho fowls as they set
tle down to rest. Results you know
and I need not repeat them, but will
say that theso blood suckers aro the
direct causo of bringing into the flocks
of our land what Is commonly called
cholera. Out of hundreds of cases of
supposed cholera examined by myself
I havo yet to find my first of this
"But to turn to our subject. Now all
you havo to do Is pick up your roost,
take it outsido (for convenience), havo
a common machine oil can filled with
gasoline and caturato polo completely,
also go Inside and run some on top and
down the stakes. Repeat this a few
times and you will completely destroy
those mlschlet makers. Your house Is
no doubt overrun with theso mltes, but
only doctor your roosta and you will
havo them exterminated."
Shorthorns vs. Scrubs. A shorthorn
steer properly cared for can ho mado
to weigh 1,500 pounds in three j-ears,
whllo a scrub will requiro five j'oars
to Bccuro 1,200 pounds, and as a result
tho shorthorn gains 500 pounds annu
ally nnd the scrub 240 pounds annual
ly. Estimating shorthorns at 514
cents a pound, the gain is annually
$20.25, and estimating tho scrub at 44
cents a pound, tho gain is annually
$10.G0, or 515.C5 gain in favor of tho
shorthorn. But let us note how tho
case stands with both at the end of the
year. I have stated that tho Bhort
horn gains 500 pounds a j'ear, hence In
tho three years it weighs 1,500 pounds
and is worth $78.75; tho scrub gains 240
pounds a year, and in three years
weighs 720 pounds and Is worth $30.G0,
hence the difference in tho vnluo of tho
steers at tho expiration of three years
Is $48.15 in favor of tho shorthorn. In
other words, the shorthorn at tho expi
ration of three years Is worth twice as
much as the Ecrub and $17.55 over.
Life of tho Horse. Speaking on tho
subject of the longevity of the horso a
writer In ono of our Boston exchanges
says: "Tho natural life of a horse
must depend partly on its breeding,
but quite as much on tho kind of work
It is set to do. An animal never driven
fast and thus strained or Injured by
... , :Z "
hard roads will last to 25 years and do
good service. But If driven hard on
stone or asphalt roadbeds Its feet will
give out and the animal will soon be
come worthless. Ell Wakeleo of An
sonla. Conn., has a team of horses 34
and 35 years old which aro yet In good
condition and do good work. He had
their photograph taken recently, and
will hang it in his parlor. Mr. Wako
leo has worked this team In double
harness all spring and summer, plow
ing, dragging and mowing with them,
and thoy are yet in prime condition,
sleek and glossy as most horses that
are young. Ho has worked them moro
than twenty-five years, and It la evi
dent that tho team haa never dccu misused."
