for a design appropriate to the hold

in a border of laurel, while a tyre

THOUGHT CAME IN TIME.
Or Generous Friend of Hospital Might
Have Been Offended.
Lakeside hospital is probably Sam-
uel Mather's chiefest hobby.
If there is a deficit in the hospital
finances at the end of the year Mr.
Mm her is usually only too happy to
write out a check that will more than
make it up.
This has gone on from year to year
until whenever anything is broken or
damaged about the place the nurses
and other employes look upon the loss
as just that much out of Mr. Mather's
generous pocket. If a nurse drops a
saucer she will smile and remark:
"Poor Samuel!" Among many of the
nurses the remark is almost a byword
whenever anything goes wrong.
Nut long ago, so runs the story,
Mr. Mather was at the hospital visit-
ing a member of his family who was
ill. He was unfortunate enough to
lean against a vase of flowers on a
table. The vase fell to the floor and
Two nurses were standing by. They
exchanged glances and one of them
mused absent-mindedly "Poor Sa—"

When in pasture sheep will always
sleep on the highest and driest parts
of the field. 'This should be kept in
mind in selecting the site for a sheep
shed. Warm close sheds are likely to
be injurious to the health of the sheep
as the temperature of their blood is
high and the fleece keeps in the body

cialy at the feeding rack. The ac-

Light for Hogs.—Darkness and
health in the hog business are never
found in the same place. The mortal
enemy of all disease germs is the
bright sunlight and this at some time
or other should have access to every
corner of the feed lot and breeding
pens. Darkness brings dampness,
dampness brings on bad health and
the losses sustained from this source
are hard to estimate.

"About twelve months ago my wife
was in very bad health, could not keep
anything on her stomach. The Doctor
recommended milk half water but it
was not sufficiently nourishing.
"A friend of mine told me one day
to try Grape-Nuts and cream. The re-
mit was really marvelous. My wife
«oon regained her usual strength and
to-day Is as rosy and plump as when
a glil of sixteen.
"These are plain facts and nothing
I could say in praise of Grape-Nuts
would exaggerate in the least the

By Prof. W. J. Kennedy, Iowa
The age at which hogs should be
fattened will depend more or less
upon the market demands and the
locality. In some countries and in
different sections of the same country
we find that there are differences in
the market demands. As a general
rule in this country the fat or lard
hog has been the most popular.
When such is the case it is better to
market hogs at the weight of from
300 to 400 pounds. These seem to
meet with the most popular favor of
In other sections of the country
and in other markets where the bacon
type of hog is preferred over the fat
or lard hog, they must be marketed at
an earlier age. The best weight for
the bacon hog is between 160 and 200
pounds. They do not require to be
nearly as fat as the fat or lard hog;
Bt 111. on the other hand, a bacon hog
is by no means a thin animal. They
should have a covering of about one
inch of fat over the back. They
should be deep sided and long sided,
and must be firm in quality. Where
the bacon hog is desired, as a gen-
eral rule it will be found most profit-
able to have the hogs fattened and
finished for market at about five and
one-half or six months of age.
Where the fat or lard hog is desired
the most profitable age to market in
order to meet the requirements of the
market would be about eight to ten
months. Hogs of this age should
weigh In the neighborhood of 300 to
350 pounds. As a general rule, how-
ever, it may be stated that the great-
est and especially the most econom-
ical gains are made on the younger
animals. This is one point in favor
of t/ie bacon hog.
The season of the year at which
the fattening should be done will de-
pend upon various conditions. In a
great many instances, hogs are fat
tened during the fall and early winter.
In other instances they are fattened
during the spring and early summer.
Generally speaking the most econom-
ical gains can be made during the
early fall or spring months. The
weather is then not too cold nor too
warm—in fact, about right for the
best gains. In real cold weather a
considerable amount of the feed is
used for the production of heat to sup-
ply the heat required for the main
tenance of the animal body.

Doomed to Backache.
It Is not right for women to be al-
ways ailing with backache, urinary
ills, headache and other
symptoms of kidney
disease. There is a way
to end these troubles
quickly. Mrs. John H.

says: "I suffered ten
years with kidney com-

never get more than temporary relief.

rectoire rever of mother's best wrap
are closely followed in the develop-
ment of the coat made for the girl not
yet in her teens.
The same may be said of trimmings,
buttons and colorings. Not in many
seasons have children worn such
striking hues as this year. Those re-
liable shades, navy blue, garnet and to-
bacco brown, have been replaced by
colorings once deemed "old," such as
taupe, grays like London smoke, faded
raspberry red, and even that peculiar
brown, known as Catawba.

bullion trimming—particularly gold.
For the bullion braid frogs and tassels
have quite generally replaced those of

A word nbout fur coats. These are

Broadcloths, especially those in two

finished fabrics are suitable only for
the child who may have several outer
garments. Sensitive mothers of babies
in long clothes have two coats, an in-
ner and outer garment.

WRAPPERS NO LONGER WORN.
Loose Indoor Gown Is the One Now
Most In Favor.
Wrappers are no longer in vogue.
They may be worn when one is dress-
ing or sleeping or attending to minor
details in the house, but they are not
the garment to be put on for other
The morning wrapper for private
wear is now an exceedingly pretty af-
fair. It has nothing in common with
the calico Mother Hubbanl of other
days. The kimona has settled all that.
It has given its shape to all these gar-
ments. Therefore, the indoor robe is
graceful and is made of pretty, soft
fabric. But it has its place and its
hours. The loose indoor gown Is the
one now popular for evening wear
when there are no callers.
The busy woman, the tired woman
and especially the woman who works
during the day at any other order of
task does not want to put on a tight
gown every evening. She wants one
that is comfortable and artistic.
The new ones which are generally
worn are cut on empire line and do
not require a corset under them. They
are in one piece, fastened down front
or back, and have a yoke and stock of
lace or net.
Pockets Now the Style for Girls.
Neither bag, sachet, pocket book nor
cardcase is carried by the truly tail-
ored girl these days. If she has the
proper kind of gownmakmr all these
things may be stowed away in her
pockets. A slash in the deep belt
affords a receptacle for change and
small memoranda. A deep treasure
gathering pocket is hidden safely be-
neath the front panel of the sheath.

hands and shows 110 signs of secret

There is some comfort in th<
thought that when the huge fur tur-
bans do go out of first style, which is
only a matter of a few weeks, they
will come In excellently for muffs. In
this way a woman will not feel that
she has thrown away money.
A good many of them already feel
this discouragement when they re-
member the $20 paid for a good fur
turban the first of the year, and the
thousands now selling at three dollars
This is the kind of thing that makes
a woman of moderate means glad she

NEW IDEA IN FANCY WORK.
Darning Cotton Makes Product Both
Pretty and Artistic.
Most women who consider the irk-
some darning they must do and the
fascinating embroidery they love to do
as irreconcilably separated would be
surprised to hear of using darning
materials for fancy work. Not in mak-
ing artistic darns—though, ns a mat-
ter of fact, every darn should be a
thing of beauty—but by using darning
cotton for solid work on linen and kin-
