J. V. Hardy, Kansas I use no ther
mometer In my hen house, but try to
keep t,he temperature comfortable. In
building n suitabln hen-house, one must
bo governed gtontly by the amount ot
nioner to be Invested and at tho snmo
time have n warm, light and con
venient winter houso for tho birds. For
u cheap, warm, wlntor house, suitable
for this climate, select a location slop
ing to the south. Make nn excavation
say three feet by twelve feet by thirty
feet, with tho thirty-foot sldo to the
south. Cover, as In any ordlnnry case,
mnking the height from Ilvo to six foot
in tho clear. Have tho doors In tho
south. Tho entile south side above tho
ground should bo covered by glasB. TIiIb
will admit the light and the sun an
day long, and water will never rrecze
In the house. In your coldest winter
days your birds will be found working
In tho litter as happily ob In summor.
It will give you winter eggs and jour
show birds will not havo f looted combs.
Tlio only objection raised by tho pcoplo
to thia one-halt under gtound houso Is
dampness, which opinion Is a mistake
it vour glass is of tho proper slope. Tho
sun, shining on the bottom ot your
house every day, will make tho ground
as dry In a week as n western Kansas

third time, and Mr. Justice lost track
of It for several years. Ho was dctor-
of tho convention, but they must obey
orders from home.
This caused a bensatlon, and growls
of disapproval arose from all parts of
tho convention: for it was evident tnai
this unfortunate complication might
prevent a unanimous! vote for Lincoln,
Tho Missouri delegates, it should bo un

was found thnt Abraham Lincoln had
507 votes nnd U. S. Grant 22 tos.
Thereupon Mr. Hume, chairman of the
Missouri delegation, Immediately moved
that tho nomination be declared unani
mous. This was done. Straightway
the long pent-up enthusiasm burst forth
In a scene ot tho wildest confusion.
Men hurrahed, umbiaced one another,
throw up their hats, danced in the
aisles or on tho platform, jumped on
tho benches, waved flags, yelled, and
committed every possible extravagance
i to demonstrate the exuberance ot their
jov. Ono of tho most comical bights
which I beheld vvua that of Hornco
Maynurd and Henry J. itajmond al

And when tho big biass baud burst out

looked up to see If the roof of tho thea

"Yankee Doodle" in its liveliest man

time before the excltod nnd jubilant
