Reply to W. A . - On which hand and which finger is , the engagement ring placed? How wNA « ''<$oqs the man get the ring so the girl \^IWU- be surprised? I s it customary' 'to .use the ring ceremony, and if so, /who. places the ring o n finger, the brldegrooni, or the minister? Is it required that the girl go t o the court- house to ge t the license with the men? Is the little finger called the fire); finger?—W. A. The engagement ring is placed upon the finger next • to the little .finger on the left hand; it is called ithe \fourth finger,\ or wedding-ring Ifinger. If a girl is to b e engaged, and ithey generally are asked the moment- 'ous question before the ring is pur- chased, she should give you her meas- ure, and it would be better to ask her what kind of a token she pre- ferred, as most girls have their ow n ideas as to the kind of ring they .like. The ring ceremony is usually .customary, and the clergyman who performs the ceremony will give full | instructions aB t o how i t is done. I do not think i t is necessary that the i bride-elect should go t o the court- . house, but by a fe w questions at the license window yo u can find out ac- curately, as laws vary in different states, and what information I might ; give might not apply t o your case. The first finger is next to the thumb, although in use the thumb is called r the first finger, according t o modern 'teaching.

An ingenious machine for washing dairy bottles, has been invented by a Wisconsin man. It no t only washes the bottles, thoroughly, but rinses them a s well. • A series of open ended receptacles with hinged lids revolve on an endless chain. The lower half of this mechanism passes through a tank of hot water an d the chain is enclosed in a frame work below the surface of the water, which just per- mits th e bottle holders to pass through with the lids closed. The bottles are thrust into these receptacles. as . the is&*i±i&*& : 1 Garments for Wedding. What constitutes the proper cos- tume for a bride and groom at a noon wedding? May a veil be worn at that f hour?^S<3tty, ' The bride may Wear a veil with per- fect propriety providing the gown is •white. Personally, I am in favor of a bride always wearing a veil, for hever again in her lifetime may she enjoy this privilege. A street cos- tume is equally proper at this hour. For the bridegroom there is this choice, a frock coat or one of the long-tailed cutaways, rather light trousers with a frock coat, four-in- hand tie, white, .gray or a fancy waistcoat. If there are any new wrinkles, a first-class haberdasher will give pointers uu the requisites. TWO EASILY MADE BIRD HOUSES. It is a simple matter t o induce the birds to build their nests near our homes if we but provide suitable shel- ters. These must be so situated that the birds will not only have ample protection from cats and other bird en- emies, but have the feeing of security, and of course the houses must be firm- ly fastened so they will weather the se- verest of storms. If you have a back yard, the problem of finding secluded locations is an easy one, and a gar- den near by that will furnish seeds and insects, an d a fresh supply of water for drink an d bath are additional induce- ments which will make your chances of securing bird tenants almost cer- tain. A common box, properly arranged, is just as much of an attraction to birds as a house on which a large amount of time has been spent in working out ornamental roofs, steeples an d door- ways, but of course for th e sake of ap - pearances, a house should be of a neat design and b e carefully built. The bird ark shown In Fig. 1 is one of the simplest houses a boy can make. A starch box, or a box of about the same proportions, should b e used for this. Partition off the inside bf the box into two compartments, a s shown in Fig. 2, and bore a hole through each end, near on e corner, for doorways. Then nail the cover boards to the box. Yo u will notice that the box is mounted cornerwise upon its support; this is done so th e adja- cent sides of the box will form a pitch- ed'.xoof that will shed water readily. The eaves of the roof are forriied by •nailing strips of the length of th e roof \boards t o their edges, and for the pro- jections over the ends four strips should be cut similar to that shown in Fig. 3, and nailed to th e end edges of the roof boards. If you support th e house upon' the RABBINICAL PROVERBS Poverty cometh from God, bu t not dirt. A small coin in a large jar makes a great noise.

Then fasten th e box to the blocks. Drive a short peg into a hole bored below each end door- way, for a perch stick. To prevent cats and squirrels from reaching the ark, a wide, projecting collar of tin or sheet iron should b e fastened around th e post one foot or so below the top. The bird cottage shown in Fig. 5 contains three compartments. The tow- er portion ma y be made out of a box of about the size used for the ark , but better results will be obtained by build- ing the entire house. Box boards will be good enough material. Divide th e lower story of .the cottage through the center, a s in Fig. 6, and fasten the sec- ond story floor to th e top of th e parti- tion and side walls. Cut the roof boards of the proper lengths an d widths to form projections at th e eaves and over th e front, an d after nailing them to th e side walls of the house, cut the gable-end boards t o fit between the roof boards and fasten them in place, Cut th e doorways in th e positions indicated in Fig. 6, and fasten a perch beneath each. Instead of pegs, win- dow-sash \lifts drawer \pulls screw- eyes, and many other small pieces of hardware may be us.ed fpr perches. The bracket support for this house is easy to make, a s you will see by Figs. 5 and 7, and account of th e wide projection o,. ..ne top and back members, over th e triangular piece, it can b e screwed or nailed to both th e under side of the house and to th e wall, thus providing a very strong means of fastening. Do no t paint th e inside of your bird houses, but give th e outside a couple of coats of green paint of about the shade generally used for flower boxes. (Copyright, 1912, by A. Ncely Hall.!

Wonderful for Pimples, Coarse Peres, Freckles PROGRESS OF DAIRY BREEDS Long Line of Ancestors of Good Char- acter on Both Sides of Family Is Quite Sufficient. (By W. B. GILBERT.) Although the general run of dairy cows are of n o definite breeding, they are no t necessarily th e worse for that. Good dairy quality is a natural char- acteristic which is hereditary in an eminent degree. A long line of an- cestors of dairy character on both sides of the family tree is quite suffi- cient t o insure, ,good„ dairy quality of the offspring. Dairy character ha s been developed by careful selection. I t is not a qual- ity originally inherent in an y one breed, although some breeds prove themselves more amenable t o the in- i fluence of selection than others. I Dairy farmers are fully alive to th e I importance of heredity in this respect, j an d although they favor cattle of cer- tain breeds, they fight shy of cattle I of those breeds from pedigreed herds. | This is because they have found that I pedigree bulls in many instances ge t ! calves far inferior in dairy quality to j th e calves of locally bred bulls. The influence of an unsuitable bull i is very far-reaching, for hi s heifers Save some of th e old sows. Keep the colts in condition. Single crop farming is disastrous. Large-flaked bran makes good food. Scab often attacks calves while In the stable. The laying flock will make good us e of surplus skimmil'k. Corn, hogs and alfalfa is a pleas- ing and profitable cpmbination. A box stall is better than th e pas- ture for the lame horse needing rest . For fitting sheep for winter, no bet- ter feed can be found than just plain oats. ' Red clover in bloom is no t good for hogs, but when young it makes a fine pasture'. .• •' • ' A lump of rock salt kept in th e barn- yard or pasture constantly, is better ihah the weekly \salting.\ Green feed fed to milk cows will insure larger profits, an d as a good aid to this result is a silo. . Se e that you calves don't get poor this fall, for if they do the chances are. they will stay poor all winter. The fleece of the rains should be dense, even in quality, and of a strong, clear white fiber throughout. After mated, give your birds th e best sanitary conditions possible, 'and mites.
