"I refuse to b rescued by anyone
but the Googan girls" whimpered Mrs.
Pufflngton from the middle of Frog
Pond whither she had gracefully glid-
ed In her brand new electric phaeton.
"But oh dear oh dear! Whatil 1 do
-till they got here?"
The sole witness of Mrs. Puffing-
ton's plight stood on the bank and
eyed hor with mingled disgust and
amusement She was a girl of 1-1 and
llred In the only house In the vicini-
ty of Frog Pond and was at that mo-
ment the only member at home. Mrs
Pufflngton's fate rested In her hands
"I don't know any Googans 'round
here" she called across the divide.
"But I can call up some men at the
nearest house on the telephone and
they'll come pull you out!"
"That's Just it they'd pull me out
and I'd be worse off than I am now.
and the laughing stock of the town.
No 6lrree when the Googans rescue
you they do It right. Call 'cm up at
their studio or I'll die In a watery
grave!" And then camo another down-
pour of Mrs. Pufflngton's grief. She
stamped her foot at the girl In explain-
ing how to reach the Googans and she
was well splashed for her impatience.
While the girl was carrying out her
Instructions Mrs. Pufflngton's pearly
tears mingled with the emerald wa-
ters of the stagnant pool nor were
'they all shed for terror or discomfit-
ure. While she was sinking deeper
Into the pond Mrs. Keency her bit-
ter rival In motoring craft was get-
ting deoper In the affections of Mr.
When In an Incredibly short time
' the Googan girls dashed up tc tho re-
lief of Mra. Putllngtou they found
hor reduced to a weeping NIobe.
"Sho's a pretty big limousine body
to haul out of tho puddle" said Lilly.
"Who Is going to row out and attach
the towing rope?"
"You'd tnako a rogular pond Lilly
suggosted Tilly. "I'll start up our
car when It's tlmo for the tug of war."
The Googans Receive a Message From
Across the Pcnd to Drop Every-
thing and Come.
The Googan girls were clever at
getting people out of predicaments of
this sort so In bhort order Mrs. Puf-
flngton was dividing lKr thanks be-
tween Heavon and the Googans for re-
storing her to dry land. ISut It was
not done without a few April showers
for Mrs. Puffing ton's other troubles in-
creased as her danger lessened.
"Look at me!" she sobbed. "And 1L
took me all Uie morning to get fixed
"Wo brought our repair kit." whits-pe-ed
Ttlly "and we'll have you love-
ly In ton minutes That's part ot
the Googan systom tocovor up all

"Well that's a blessing" slghod
Mrs Pufflngton with relief. "I
wouldn't have Henrietta Keeney see
me like this and know the truth
for all the world. And as for Kara
Cranksnlff " she broke Into a dismal
"Do tell us about It" urgod Tilly
lighting the little burner to boat the
"Well 1 don't know but I Just as
soon tell you as not you are such
nlco sympathetic girls. You see

attention and I will sa for him. I
haven't seen such a lluely man since

living. Now this Mr. Cranksnlff is
all wrapped up in automobiles of all
kinds. There's a very designing per-
son a soil of friend of mine that was
by the name of Henrietta Keeney
and what did she do? Sbe bought an
electric machine and asked Mr.
Cranksnlff to teach Iter to run it! I
bought a car about the same tlm
but not to catch any nan I want you
to understand that I bought my car
to please myself not Mr. Cranksnlff
thuph It was awfully sweet of him
to offer to teach me. So after all
Henrietta Keeney didn't have any-

"You arc- making Mrs. Pufflngton
blush more on the right side than on
the left." Interrupted Lilly critically.
"Well I'm not a landscape garden-
er by profession." retorted Tilly mak-
ing another dab at Mrs. Pufflngton's
If I do say It" resumed Mrs. Puf-
flngton. "I got on much better than
Henrietta and Mr. Cranksnlff was very
complimentary. He said if he ever
loved a woman It would be one whr
could handle a car well. Dear me suz
how times have changed! Why when
John Pufflngton was calling on me It
was considered enough if a girl was
ladylike and a good housekeeper.

tied down to a discouraged Jog then
to spasmodic jerks that almost io-
fused to surmount a "thank-you-ma'am"

METHODS ARE EMPLOYED
By G. Arthur Bell Asst. Animal Husbandman Bureau ot
Four methods of fattening poultry
aro practiced In this country viz:
Pen fattening crate fattening ma-
chine cramming and hand cramming.
The first two are probably the most
common today while the third is gain-
ing rapidly as its results are becom-
ing better known and the fourth Is
used only where but few birds are
Pen fattening is practiced by a great
many people who do not have the
time and Inclination to use other meth-
ods. The essentials of pen fattening
are quiet darkness except at feeding
time and plenty of soft green feed
given at regular Intervals usually
threes times a day. Dirds may tx kept
In flocks of IS or 20 but the sxes
should be separated.
In crate fattening a few fowls are
confined in crates and fed from a
trough. A crate six feet long and IS
or 20 inches wlQu Is suitable and is
large chough for a dozen blrdr. Some-
times such a crate Is divided into two
or three compartments 4 to 6 birds
being placed in each compartment.
Dut little room for the birds to move
about Is desirable for the less exer-
cise the bird obtains the more readily
does It fatten. The top back and ends
of the crates should be solid If thy
are to be placed outdoors but If they
are to bo In a bulldfng they miy be
built of lath or slats. These slats
should be two inches apart in front
so as a permit the birds to eat from
the troughs which are hung just out-
side of the coop. The slats of the
bottom of tho coop should be about
one Inch apart to permit the droppings
to fall through. In Indoor feeding the
crates should be placed in a dark
room and Just before feeding enough
light should be admitted to allow the
birds to see to eat. They are usually
fed three times a day and are permit-
ted to cat for half an hour at a time
when tho room is again darkened and
the uneaten food removed.
For the best results a machine is
essential especially for tho last ten
days for otherwise the birds will not
eat nearly'so much as they can digest
Our Illustration shows a cramming
machine in operation at one of the
largi- poultry establishments In New
York state. A resorvolr under which
Is placed a small forco pump operated
by means of a lover worked by the
foot Is placed on a tripod. A tube Is
fixed to one end of the pump through
which tho feed passes when tho lever
rod Is lowered. This tube Is of rub-
ber or metal. If rubber It may havo
a metal point. Metal tubes aro more
easily k nt clean. Tho feed Is placed
In the resorvolr nnd Is made Into the
consistency of thick cream. There
are several ways of holding tho bird
but tho following will be found simple
grip the bird firmly either between tho
right elbow and sldo of the body as
shown In tho Illustration or between
tho left olbow and tho body which-
ever Is tho moro convenient. Tho
head Is grasped In tho left hand tho
first finger being placed In tho mouth
to keep It open. Tho tube Is placed In
the mouth nnd tho bird Is drawn on
until tho ond of the tube reaches tho
crop the nock bolng elongated as
much as. possible. Tho lever bar .a
gently loworod by tho foot and tho
food Is thus forced Into tho crop. One
hand Is kept on the crop and as soon
as It is sufficiently full tho foot Is
removed from the levor and tho bird
Is gently romoved. Tho operator soon
learns to know when tho crop is full.
No stated amount that should be fed
to an individual can bo given for tho
quantity varies with tho size of tho
crop. Groat caro should bo takon In
preparing tho feed to soo that there
aro no lumps for the tubo Is small
and oaslly becomes blocked.
Hand cramming Is a good system
whoro hut few fowls aro being fatten-
ed but would be found rathor labori-
ous whero many aro fattoned. The
feed Is mado into boluses or balls
which should bo about two incbos
long and one-half Inch in diameter.
A largo number of those aro prepared
before commonclng to feed. The op-
erator sits on a stool or box firmly
grips tho fowl botween his knees
and elongates the neck holding tho
head in a similar niannor to that
described In using the cramming ma-
chine. He thon dips a bolus in skim
milk or wator nnd forces It into the
bird's mouth pressing it down he
I throat with his fingers. The neck
above the bolus Is then gripped with
the thumb and first fingor which are
run downward along the neck forcing
tho bolus into the crop. It will prob-
ably take from 14 to IS of these bo-
luses to fill the crop depending on its
capacity. Some feeders practice this
method in connection with crate fat-
tening. The attendant after feeding
in the crates feels the crcp of each
bird and any not having a sufficiently
Ailed crop are crammed in the manner
Fattening birds should always re-
ceive soft feed. As they have no ex-
ercise they require a feed that ca
be quickly and easily digested. The
following mixture is fed at the New-
York establishment referred to under
the description of cramming machine-
100 pounds finely ground harley. 100
pounds finely ground corn 100 pounds
finely ground oats (with hulls sifted
out) to which mixture Is added 10
per cent of beef scraps. Buttermilk
or skim milk Is used for mixing ihe
former being preferred. A little salt
z sometimes added. The birds arc-
fed twice a day at Intervals of twelve
hours and are crammed for about
throe weeks. It Is Important that the
intervals between the feedings should
be as nearly equal as possible.
Another ration may be made as fol-
lows: 100 pounds ground oats 100
noun'1' ground com 50 pounds flour
4 pounds tallow.
BEST WAYS OF
By Georse P. Grout North Da-
kota Azrlcultural Collczc.
For many years past dairy authori-
ties have held that milk and cream
would not absorb bad odors from sur-
rounding atmosphere after milking un-
til cooled to a temperature equal to or
below that of the surrounding atmos-
phere and It was further believed that
milk gave off animal odors when warm-
er than tho air and absorbed others
when colder. For this reaton dairy-
men In general did not hasten to re-
move milk from the bam until con
venlent and often left it there until
cooled nearly to the temperature of
the surrounding atmosphere. Late In-
vestigations on milk absorption have
disproved these facts and It is now
held that warm milk will take on bad
odors just as quickly as the cold milk.
It Is very obvious therefore that the
milk should not remain long In tho
barn. The quicker It can be gotten
out of the barn the better if good re-
sults and 11 high price for the butter Is
expected'. Besides absorbing bad odors
many of the changes which take
place In milk and Its products are
caused by tho growth of tiny bacteria
or plant life which multiply very rap-
Idly under favorablo conditions. If
the best results are to be expected the
milk should bo kept as free from all
forms of filth and dirt as possible as
filth and dirt contain millions of the
tiny forms which may grow and spoil
your milk and cream.
The farmer or producer should use
all possible precaution to keep out all
forms and trust to the butter maker
to put In tho proper kind to produce
vfce desired flavor. It Is just as neces-
sary that the butter maker have
full control of the cream as It Is that
tho housewife have full charge of the
bread maklug. Tho housewife uses
yeast to sour her bread and the butter
maker uses a starter to sour his cream.
Either would sour without these but
the housewife knows very well that
she would make a poor quality of
bread without yeast. The butter mak-
er knows ho can make only a poor
quality of butter without good culture
but I havo often hoard the question
raised as to tho Importance of keeping
cream sweet until delivered to tho
factory. Tho producer should strive
to prevent unfavorable bacteria from
gaining entranco into the cream then
keep it cold and deliver the product
in a sweet condition for tho butter
maker to handle. Tho result will
please the producer as It will mean a
high quality of butter aud a good-sized
monthly cream check.
Composition of Milk. Milk varies
widely in composition depending upon
tho brod and individuality of the
cow stage of lactation and weather
conditions. Food as a rule has little
effect In permanently changing tho
proportions ot tho several ingredients.
Ono hundred pounds of milk of good
average quality should contain about
tho following amounts of the different
constituents: Water 87; fat 4; albu-
minoids casein 3; albumin .50; milk
sugar 4.80; ash 70; total 100. Tho
total solids Include all ot the ingredi-
ents excepting tho water.
Storage of Eggs. Keep the egga
stored In a clean room till ready to
tako them to market. Egg shells aro
pourous and It is known that they
will absorb odors. The absorption may
not bo sufficient to ruako tho eggs
taste but It will be enough to start tho
oggs to spoiling.
Care of Cow Before Calving. Don't
let the cow run out in the cold right
up to tho tlmo ot calving. Sho should
bo kept In a comfortablo well-bedded
stall at least ten days before dropping

rangement and nature's warning to

A REAL "HOSS" RACF.
Country Fair the Place to See It at
If you would sec a horee strap-
ped booted bracrd and geared to
the lira'.t you must seel: such a
track as you see at the old-time
country fair. Hera comes an awk-
ward flea-bitten gray which never
went under 2:50 In his life. He 13
hobbled and checked and goggled and
hitched up sldewlse lengthwise and
crosswise until there Is more har-
ness than horse. You wonder how
his driver ever got him Into this Ug-
glng and how he will get him out
again without cutting him free with
a jackknlfe. A farmer with a
gray beard and twinkling eye ob-
serves to hia neighbor:
"Last time John Martin had that
plug out on tho road I told him he
had the old cripple overloaded with
fust-aids-to-tlie-injured. Them straps
that was caliated to hoist up his
knees must ha' pulled too tight and
the critter was yanked clean off the
ground. What John was gettlu'
ready tor was a race for flyin' ma-
chines not a boss trot." From "The j
Country Fair" by David Lansing in
SEEK TO WIN SOLDIERS.
Russian Girls Risk Life for the Cause
"When the university opened last
autumn I started to work again
among the soldiers" said the young
woman. "As you know the revolu-
tionists are at present working very
hard to win over the army and ono
of the means 13 to talk freedom di-
rectly to the soldiers. For this girls
have been found to be more effective
than men; the young peasant soldiers
are more willing to listen to girls
ond are far readier to protect them
from arrest So all over Russia hun-
dreds aud hundreds of girls are now
nightly meeting with groups of sol-
diers in working men's homes and In
barracks. To go Into barracks and
talk revolution to the soldiers hard-
ly anything Is so dangeroub for the
girl caught Is tried by court-martial
and in a day or two is executed.
From Ljroy Scott's Interviow with a
Russian Woman In Everybody's

An English quarryman was charged
with assaulting one of his mates and
when the case was carried into court
an eyewitness of the occurrence gavo
some curious evidence.
"He tuk a pick an' ho tuk a pick"
the witness began "an' ho hit him
wld his pick an' he hit him wld his
pick; an' if he'd hit him wid hlg as
hard as he hit him wld his he'd have
near killed nlm and not him htm."

"Old Amy. you fcnow. who is famous
for being arrested has been sent to
Jail again. Hut as sho welgli3 nearly
300 pounds and is a good fighter it
took nearly all the reserve foroe to get

"Then the magistrate who sont hor

QUALITIES OF WIT AND HUMOR.
Alike Yet in Many Vays Fundament-
Wit and humor arc such elemental
fundamental things that It has always
been found dlfllcult to analyze them
says a writer in The Atlantic. Upon
some points however those who hare
essayed this puzzling task agree for
they all hold that wit is an intel-
lectual humor an emotional quality;
that wit is a perception of resem-
blance and humor a perception of
contrast of discrepancy of incongru-
ity. The incongruity Is that which
arises between the ideal and the fact
between theory and practloe between
promise and performance: and per-
haps it might be added that it is al-
ways or almost always a moral In-
congruity. In the case both of wit
and humor there Is also a pleasurable
surprise a gentle shock which ac-
companies our perception of tho hith-
erto unsuspected resemblance or In-
congruity. A New England farmer
was once describing in the pres-
ence of a very humane person tho
great age and debility of a horse that
he formerly owned and used. "You
ought o have killed him" Interrupt-
ed the humane person Indignantly.
