In our winter poultry house on cold, snowy days our hens sing and cackle i-s if they were enjoying summer weather. The house is 14x56 feet, with large windows on the southern exposure. Its equipment consists of clean, inviting nest boxes, self-feeders, with grit and shells, the ground floor banked deeply with leaves and straw, writes George W. Brown of Hancock county, Ohio, in the New England Homestead. We keep the hens busy from daylight until perch time dig- ging after small grain scattered sev- eral times daily in the litter. Lawn clippings, meat offal, beets, pumpkins, cabbage and an occasional sheaf of wheat, oats or clover hay suspended from the roof gives them business. It is the busy hen that lays the eggs. She hustles and has red blood coursing in her veins to keep her warm on cold days. Our perches can be hooked to the roof, and if we have any drones in the flock inclined to spend much of the day on the perch v - e just hook the perches to the ceil- ing. They soon get the habit of hustling with the rest of the flock. V\'e have no use for drones on our larm save in our apiary. ECONOMY IN GROUND GRAIN CASE FOR SPROUTING GRAIN HANDY FOR COLLECTING EGGS Casirable to Kee p Separat e Bo x fo r Each Pen Where Trap Nests Are Being Used. When trap nests are used it is some- t'mes desirable to keep a carrying box for each pen which receives the eggs IT, they are gathered, says the Farm and Home. Number each tray or box When trap nests are used in some to correspond with the number of Hand y Eg g Tray. .the pen. The holes in the bottom .board keep the eggs in an upright ; position on the small end where the .'numbers can be easily read. HABIT OF EXCHANGING EGGS i-ltU e Mone y an d N o Satisfaction In Practice—Bes t t o Sell Direct to the Consumer. There is no satisfaction, and but very little money in exchanging eggs for groceries or grain. By being care- ful in gathering eggs, so that they won't become chilled in winter and s the hens won't sit on them overnight and using a little care in sizing and selecting, quite an advance over the common prices may be obtained. When possible, sell your eggs direct to the consumer. If not possible, get a , market in your nearest city with some grocer who deals in strictly fancy groceries and provisions. Agree to furnish him only strictly fresh eggs, and then, for your own sake live up to your agreement. Carefully clean all the eggs; don't send any small, misshapen or large ones. Stamp each egg with a rubber stamp, using your initials or the name of youi farm, and in a short time you will have created a demand for your eggs and when you have created such a de- mand your eggs will bring the highest prices, considerably more than youi storekeeper would pay. Several neighbors could send their eggs together, paying a cent or twc per dozen to one of their number foi doing the business, and in this way all would gain a little. Cold-Storage Tests. Tests of cold storage, as made By one of the experts of the department of agriculture led to the conclusion that poultry keeps Better when not drawn than it does when drawn. The ' reason /s that the process of drawing cause's bruises which invite the lodg- ment of germs. Birds that were dry •picked kept much better than those ;which had been scalded. The experts 'summed up the requirements as • prompt storage, dry picking and dry : chilling. These esesntials have all 'been favorable to the cold-storage • trade, but seem never to be com- prehended by the host of agitators i which every year try to secure ab- surd cold-storage laws. Enables Anima l t o Take Food Into Cabine t Contain s Shelves fo r Placin g Stomac h in Stat e of Ready an d ' Seeds—Fertilize r Tray Belo w Thoroug h Digestion. Water Reservoir. IANY WINTER FABRICS (By R. G. WEATHBRSTONH.) Where food is ground before being fed, we are sure that the animal takes the food into its body in a state which will admit of a ready and thorough digestion and assimilation, while whole-grain rations often are but slightly chewed, swallowed and pass through the animal in that unchanged form. This means not only a great waste of food, but also that it furnishes very little nutrition for the upbuilding of bone and muscular tissue. A feed- grinder soon pays for itself, especially In the winter, by avoiding any waste TROUBLE REALLY IS I N MAKING ONE'S SELECTION. Two Missouri men have designed what appears to be a very complete cabinet for the,sprouting of grain or other seeds. A series or shelves on which the seeds are kept slide in and out. In the sides of the cabinet are hot air passages and means for con- trolling the flow of air through them. At the top is a reservoir containing water and leading down from this are a number of pipes with perforations along their inner surface. There is also a fertilizer tray below the water Feecl Grinder. of grain and in promoting good health and rapid development among the live stock. Companies using a large number of horses have found chopped and ground feeding both better and more economical. Corn, oats and other grains a-s rations for horses are used ground, and mixing the ground grain with moistened, chopped hay has proved to be a more economical stable regimen than feeding whole grain and uncut hay and roughage. Chopped stover and all ground grain minimize the labor of mastica- tion and assist easy assimilation of food nutrients. While it may not be always practical on the farm to pro- vide chopped rations for horses, bet- ter results will be achieved by feeding grain rations, with but little hay at the noon meal and watering the ani- mals before the midday meal. The use of a feed-grinder will pay big. . j Grai n Sprouting Case. j reservoir. When the contents of the ] shelves need, moistening, the water is j turned on and spraye' through the | holes in the pipes, the drippings fall- ing into a lower reservoir. If a little j extra heat is required, that can be I turned oh in an instant, while the fer- j tilizer tray has a perforated bottom for sprinkling. GLEANINGS FOR BEE LOVERS PROPER CULTURE OF CLOVER Best Results Hav e Been Obtained on Black, Sandy Loam—Killing Dan- ger Is In Spring. My best results in clover growing have been on a black, sandy loam. So far I have grown exclusively the me- dium or common red clover, says a writer in the New England Home- stead. I usually sow from eight to twelve pounds per acre on a well-pre- pared seed bed., I prefer sowing with a nurse crop. Wheat and barley both have been tried for this purpose. I prefer barley, as it does not form such a dense shade for the young clover plants, when they are start- ing. The crop .of clover grows rapid- ly, and cutting begins about July 4 in this locality, and sometimes a little earlier in the fields where clover is without any other grasses, and some- times a little later if timothy and clover are mixed. Clover is not grown to any great ex- tent in this locality. The past two ^asons have not been the best to jure a stand. The real danger of clover-killing comes in the spring. When it freezes and thaws out, and the ground heaves the plants are torn loose and die. Whenever the snow collects it comes in fine shape in the spring. With the continued culti- vation of this soil and with a large amount of manure worked into the soil will come better clover-raising in this part of the state. ' Buckwhea t Make s Fine Honey—Little Insects Are Benefit to Orchard— Car e in Moving. (By A. JOSEPH.) If you have the space and would plant buckwheat you will find it ; makes fine honey. Plant it late so it will bloom when all other flowers are , gone. Some people think bees destroy fruit, but that is not so. The birds pick the fruit and as a usual thing they bite at the ripest on the trees , and when the bees find these fruits, , they devour them and leave nothing 1 but pit and skin. The damage to ripe | fruit is never started by bees; and I after being damaged by the birds it is useless for marketing and, if i t is ' not removed from a sound fruit next : to it, the one it touches will rot also. ; Thus you see the bees are a benefit in the orchard. In moving bees do not do so until the weather gets cold, too cold for , them to leave the hive, or they will j not stay. They will go back to the old location, unless moved a mile and I a half or two miles. Then they will stay without any trouble; but if mov- ed only a short distance in 24 hours the hives will be pretty well desert- ed. As a general thing bees do not fly more than a mile or mile and a half and they become familiar with the surroundings within that distance. Description o f Som e of th e Most Popula r Material s Ma y Hel p Some On e Who-ls Still Un - decided as t o Choice. So many different fabrics are \on the market\ suing for favor • that it were convenient at least for buyers to know one from t'other. It would be disappointing to, rush in for a bar- gain in arinure and find that you really thought it to be bengaline. Armure is a weave that produces a fine pebbled surface. Bengaline is a silk fabric that has thick threads or cords at intervals from selvage to selvage. Frequently the cord is of wool covered With silk and in this season the two-tone .ef-' focts are popular. Beige is a fine fabric woven of threads of two different colors. These two are twisted together, giv- ing an uncertain effect in the 1 light, although the general coloring is a monotone. Beige is also the color -'of natural wool. Camel's hair is a loose woolen fabric with long hairs. Bourette is a rough effect gained by introducing lumpy, knotted yarns .at intervals in the weaving. Challis, either cotton, wool or a mixture of these two, is a light weight fabric, usually printed. Mohair is a lustrous fabric, light in weight and dust shedding, made from the hair of the Angora goat. Tulle is a fine silk netlike maline. made from the silk of the wild silk- worm that feeds on oak leaves. When pongee and shantung are heavy and .coarsely woven they are called tussaih. Melton is a smooth, stout woolen cloth like broadcloth, only heavier. It is suitable for tailored costumes. Ladies' cloth is a fabric for tailored suits'.and long wraps similar to flan- nel in construction, but with a high finish on the surface which gives a broadcloth effect. Terry cloth is a weave with a loop- ed effect. It is a velvet in which the loops of the pile have not been cut. The name is frequently applied to cot- ton fabrics of the type of agaric and sponge cloth. Sicilian cloth, or siciliene, is mo- hair of heavy weight. Crayenette is not a fabric, but a process. It is a waterproofing process applied to any material, either silk, ' wool or cotton. Raye means striped. Tulle is a fine silk netlike maline. The French apply the same name to blonde or cotton net. . Panne is a light weight velvet with the pile \laid\ or flattened. Oxford was originally a wool fabric in dark gray and white mixtures. Of late years heavy cotton and linen fabrics have been known by this name. Granite is a weave in which the yarns are so twisted as to create a pebbled surface* ., MADE FROM BANDS OF FUR Collarette s That Hav e Become th e Rag e Ar e of What Seems Some- what Quee r Combination . Smart Parlsiennes are wearing col- larettes of fur combined with lace or velvet. These are wonderfully pret- ty and add just the correct touch to a gown or coat suit. > Short strips of fur, just long enough to encircle the throat and too small to use for any other purpose, are lined with white satin. Pleated frills of lace are then stitched by hand on both the top and bottom of the fur band. Three hooks and eyes join the collarette at the side and a bow or rosette of lace, with ends elgbt or ten inches long, conceals the fastening.. Strips of fur one or two inches in width can be used effectively to bor- der a center strip of velvet or fur. A lovely combination is ermine and sapphire-blue velvet. Stitch the nar- row strips of white fur to the band of velvet and border it with knife-pleat- ed frills of velvet or t ( ulle. Use white satin to line the collarette and finish the closing with a flat bow of velvet. Perhaps you have a strip of mink three inches in width. If so, stitch it to a band of seal-brown satin. Mako two pleated frills of the satin and stitch them to the top and bottom of the collar portion. When the hooks and eyes have been attached to the ends, finish the closing with a pleated bow of satin caught through the cen- MILK,—Class B, $1.91; class C, $1.81 pel 40-quart can. • '• _ Butter. . , Creamery extras 33J4@84 Firsts , 30 §>33 Seconds 27 @29 Thirds 25 @ja6 Creamery, held extras 31^@32 J A Firsts 29 @31 Seconds 27 (g>28 Thirds 24 @26 Stajte dairy, llnest 30 @32 Good to prime 27 @29 Eggs.

Old Fashion, Which Ha s Muc h t o Rec- ommen d It , Will Be Welcomed Back to Favor. One rejoices to see that again we are to wear cravats and stocks of folded black silk and satin, with small turned-down stock collars of white lawn showing narrowly at the top. Severe as it is,, this is the most be- coming form of neckwear possible, and if the lawn turnover is not starched (.but the laundress will stiffen it if she gets the chance.) the severity is by no means too great. The finishing touches of the cravat, too, help to re- move the touch of sternness. Neat and small the bow may be—but with what pointed ends, and with how much dash in its crisp lines! A very smart notion is to have the bow at the base of the throat made of nar- row ribbon, three-quarters of an inch .wide. This enables the bow to have the requisite spring in its lines, and also to be small, where ribbon of the same width as that around the neck is altogether too flowing. For the lit- tle lawn turnovers, plain hemstitching is the ideal adornment, though a nor- row edging of crochet is permissible, or a little white embroidery. Small pin-in bows in spotted foulards or soft satin are also much worn just now.

A glass front poultry house causes (extremes in temperature, warming up in the Say time and then turning cold with the setting of the sun. This is also apt to cause disease and make the fowls' combs and wattles more sensitive to frosts. The open muslin front is by far the best and at the Bame time the least expensive. Some gla&i may be used, but not exclusive- ly. Pill up those vacant spaces in the orchard with some good fruit trees. It is never too late to start in the fruit business, enough at least for the home supply. Good, young apple trees come high, but the poor ones are dearer than any other kind. There will be a very heavy demand for trees next spring, and late orders will certainly be unfilled. Five feet apart is about the right distance for the currant and goose- berry bushes. Do not crowd. If you want a line, early yellow peach, put two or throe Triumph trees in your next nursery order. \Wood ashes are-valuable to spread around fruit trees for small fruits and vegetables; they should not be wasted. The root louse often causes apple scab, and ashes or lime around the trunk will stop the ravages of the root louse. Expert orchardists recommend seed- ing the orchard to crimson clover— or rye to be plowed down the follow- ing spring. i While apples do not rank high as pig feed it is best to give them to the pigs rather than to let them rot un- der the trees. > The peach makes a good stock for some variety of plum. It has a larger 1 and stronger root system than most plum varieties. The climate and conditions that are best for the apple are best for the kiiman family. Both thrive best in the tejngprate zone. Poor cows are never clean. No dairy is ever too clean. Slow ripening of cream produces a bitter flavor. Every rapid churn is a failure. It wastes butter fat. Many a common coy/ can be .made good with more feed. Properly managed, dairying brings in a constant income, i With calves too low a temperature of feed causes scours. The cow that gives much milk must have plenty to drink. The best way to keep cows' clean is to use plenty of bedding. Keep the cows out of the chill- ing winds. There is no profit in a chill. Do not excite the cows or expose them to stress of insects, flies or the weather. It is said that the occupation of dairying is confining. If this is true, then it must be a good cure for loaf- ing. Dairy shows, fairs and all the expo- sitions show us what has been done, and give us a glimpse of what may be done. In dairying there is no excuse for the man who goes at it blindly to blame luck and weather for his failure. Turn the separator with a jteady and uniform hand and flush down with skim milk or water at the end of sep- aration. It is quite customary among dairy- men to quit feeding calves skim rniik when they attain the age of eight or nine months. If you don't believe in keeping cows comfortable visit the stables of the men with the big cream check. That ought to convince you. Butter for market wrapped in pa- per will always get the edge in price, and the expense is trifling. A quarter buys a big batch of butter paper. \Pegtop \ Skirt Canno t Be Considered a Novelty , an d Many Will Eve n Deny It s Gracefulness. It is now some time since the pan- nier skirt was heralded with a loud blast of trumpets In fact, it has been with us long enough for it to become necessary to give it a new name, and consequently we are now presented with the pegtop skirt and asked to consider it a novelty. As a matter of fact, the pegtop skirt is nothing but an adaptation of the pannier. Whether it is a pretty one or not must be decided by each for herself. It would probably be more becoming to the average woman if she were a clothes pole. However, it has come among us, and certainly its most successful ex- amples are those of day gowns, or at any rate short skirts; for in a trailing dress the width of the upper part of the skirt, with its caught-up fullness, is in ludicrous contrast with the attenuated, meandering train. One of the strangest forms of pegtop skirt is that which is caught up in front with a great bulging mass of fullness hanging over the place where it is caught up. This is certainly not be- coming nor pretty; it is even scarcely seemly.

In some of the newest street cos- tumes the coats are entirely of fur, mostly in mole, Hudson seal, ermine and sable. When the tailored suits are trimmed with fur, very wide, soft muffs are carried to match the fur trimming of the suit. Some of the new effective flouncings are of linen, and they show floral pat- terns in blind work, with an occasion- al lace medallion. Some of the newest suit designs for the small boy show silk sashes in a contrasting shade from that chosen for the little garments. Many of the new velveteens are checked, while the curduroys have a chinchilla cord, and others, tweed diagonal or cotele effects. Extremely becoming are the soft velvet or plush hats to the girlish face. They have no inside frame and are trimmed with fur, ribbon fancies or ribbon flowers. [• k' fyH ••*.'
