Ccstly Fashion Set by Mr*. Cornelius
Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt has start-
ed the fashion of having an opera
! cloak to match each gown. Every
time she appeared at the opera in
J New York she wore a different cos-
| tume, including the outer cloak. On
the opening night of the opera Mrs.
Vanderbilt's gown of white satin was
covered by a cloak of the same ma-
terial, lined throughout with ermine.
Her next gown was bluish green vel-'
vet and the cloak of velvet was
trimmed with strips of chinchilla. Her
next gown of pale blue with irrides-
cent spangles had a harmonizing
cloak of the same hue, with collarB
and cufTs of Russian sable. Monday
night young Mrs. Vanderbilt wore
white velvet with trappings of pink
roses and lace. Her cloak was of
brocade and the sleeves of the loose
mantle were filled with lace.

WENT THROUGH CIVIL WAR.
iVife of Confederate General Pryor
Enjoyed Unique Distinction.
Mrs. Roger A. Pryor, now a silver-
Paired hut still charming matron, is
the only woman who from start to fin-
ish of the civil war was In Confeder-
ate camps. Her husband was one of
the most distinguished Southern gen-
erals and thus it was that she en-
joyed the unique and perilous privi-
lege. Besides being a social leader,
Mrs. Pryor is an author of national
note and is also the possessor of what
is acknowledged to be one of the
sweetest voices ever heard. One en-
thusiastic admirer declares that "her
tones are like molten sunbeams
poured on a bell of virgin gold." Mrs.>
Pryor through the last year of the
war lived within a stone's throw of
Robert E. L*ee's headquarters. One of
her most treasured trophies is a pic-
ture of the great general on his
world-celebrated charger Traveler.
Sheep and Cattle Compared.
An Iowa farmer has made a com-
parison between the profits of sheep
and cattle raising, which shows up
sheep-keeping in a good light. He
says In the American Cultivator:
"I think if we take a series of tea
years together it will commonly be?
fountl that there is not much difference
between the market price of fat sheep
and fat cattle, if we compare all
classes, wethers, fat ewes, yearlings
and lambs, with steers, fat cows, heif-
ers and calves. The fat cattle are
now about |1 per hundred less than
a year ago. still choice fat steers are
now considerably higher than fat
wethers and yearlings, but fat cows
are about the same as fat ewes.
"It has been proved by our expert-
nient stations that, as a general rulo,
It requires about the same amount
and quality of feed to grow and fat-
ten a given number of pounds of
sheep or mutton as of cattle or beef.
According to this rule, ten sheep at
two or two and a half years old,
•weighing 130 pounds each, have eaten
jhe same amount of feed as a steer or
heifer of the same age and weight,
"While the general rule holds that
Jt takes about the same amount of
feed to produce a thousand pounds of
beef as a thousand pounds of mutton,
ft often happens that sheep can be
jtept on cheaper feed. Sheep eat a
larger variety of plants or weeds than
Cattle, and rapidly convert even noxi-
pus weeds into wool and mutton.
, "Sheep can be well fattened in less
time than cattle. The one hundred
day fed steer is not finished, but sheep
in very moderate condition can be
well fattened in one hundred days.
"Another element of profit with
sheep is the Increased fertility which
they give to the soil. No other stock
equals them In this respect. Increas-
ed fertility means hetter crops."
Sheep Supply and Price.
So far in 1904 sheep are the only
meat, producing domestic animals that
have been marketed in as large number
as during the corresponding period
the previous year. The supply of cat
tie and hogs has been less this year
than last, while that of sheep has
been more. And, in spite of the large
real and relative supply, the price ot
fcheep has been steadier and better
maintained than that of cattle or hogs.
jThis situation should be an encour-
agement to sheepmen, for It shows
,that our people are gradually becom-
ing larger consumers of mutton, and
mutton production is the most profit-
able in sheep husbandry.
While the average price ol sheep
has been relatively higher than that
of other stock, the price shows a low
er average than It would if the mutton
quality of the K*ieep had been higher.
The people are learning to love the
taste of mutton, but it is good muttoc
that is craved and the markets of th|
year have demonslrated that the peo-
ple are willing to pay well for good
mutton. This Indicates clearly the
line that sheep _nen should follow and
develop. Let the production of good
mutton, marketed when In its primes!
condition, be the objects striven fo*
and the possible advantages of sheer,
husbandry will be more fully realized

Organic Heart Trouble and Bright'*
Disease Carry Off Fast Livers.
In New York and most of the large
centers of wealth there has been an
alarming Increase of deaths from or-
ganic heart trouble and Brigbt's dis-
This need not worry the compara-
tively poor to any extent, for these
are aristocratic ailments. Bright *s
disease comes along with a rapid ex-
istence and late hours and rich feed-
ing and wines.
In 1871 In New York city the two
diseases mentioned killed 17.68 per-
sons out of every 10,000 of the popu-
lation. New York was a little slow-
thirty years ago. It had only begun
to learn how to burn up money. The
rich did the best they knew how then,
and were willing to learn more.
The pace quickened. an« so did the
death rate. You can't fool the Old
Man with the Scythe. You cannot
sneak late hours and highballs and
thousand dollar dinners in on him.
and so In 1883 the deaths had jumped
to 2,888 from heart disease and
Bright's disease, or 21.91 persons in
every 10,000. In 1903 the total deaths
from the causes named were 5,947,

We have been advocating warm

ease. Perhaps this is true if care is
taken that fowls do not roost in
draughts of air. In any event we do
not want ventilation all taken out
of a house In order that it may be
made warm. Houses can be kept too
warm for poultry and when exposed to
outdoor air they get colds and conipli-

Oon't house coo closely until very
cold weather comes. Keep the air
pure as possible and keep the flock
thrifty. Remember that, some very

Sightseers Annoy Dewey.
Admiral Dewey's peace of mind has
ieen greatly disturbed lately by
"sight-seeing automobiles," each car-
rying thirty or forty people, which
stop In front of his home three times
a day, in the effort to get a glimpse
of the admiral or Mrs. Dewey. Even
more annoying than the stare of for-
ty pairs of eyes is the witticism of the
guide, who shouts through the meea-
phone in a voice that can be heard a
block away: "The red house to the
right was given by the American peo-
ple to Admiral Dewey, who destroyed
the Spanish fleet in Manila bay and
came to Washington to be captured
by a lone woman."
Adulterated Foods in Paris.
Dr. Brouardel, chief of the Paris
/aboratory. writes thus of the trials
of the digestion in Paris:-', "When a
man takes milk for his early break-
fast preserved with formic aldehyde,
when he eats at luncheon a slice of
bam kept good by borax, with spin-
ach or French beans made green with
sulphate of copper, and when he
washes all that down with half a bot-
tle of wine cleared with an excess of
plaster of parla, and that for twenty
years, how is It to be expected that
such a man can have a stomach?"
A Good Sign.
It is a good sign of prosperity in
j any branch of live stock when new
people are getting into it nnd the
} old ones are broadening out. This is
j the case at present in the sheep bus!
; ness. Breeders say i.iere never was
| such an urgent demand for pure-bred
! rains, and this inquiry is not limited
to any one part of the country. West-
| ern men are especially active in an
i endeavor to build up their flocks, and
! are sparing no expense to do it. Ic
j the east, the small farmers are gradu-
I ally going back into the sheep busi
J nesB because they are convinced that
| the sheep can restore fertility to the
j soil as no other animal can. Anothei
stimulating factor has been the high
er price of wool during the past year.
The sheepman has his ups and down?
but with his flocks graded up to 8
higher standard, the downs are get

When Roots Are Fed.
Judgment is needed in the feeding
of roots to hogs. They like the roots
and will sometimes eat more than is
profitable for them to eat. That Is,
they fill up on roots and the work of
Ithe stomach goes to digest a lot of
material that has in it very little
nutriment. When water is given In
^addition to the roots the result is even
;more in the direction we have Indi-
cated. If the hogs have a good quan-
tity of roots they should not be given
water; for,the roots are almost nine-
tenths water. But It is better to give
ithe swine some water and reduce the
amount of roots they are to receive.
Roots are a great adjunct to the grain

Ripeness of Bananas.
According to a large dealer In tropi-
cal fruits, the prevalent idea that ba-
nanas are never as good In this coun-
try as in the land where they grow, be-
cause they are picked and shipped
green, Is entirely erroneous. This
dealer says that bananas ripened on
the plant would not be fit for fqod. be
cause the inside of the fruit would
then be dry and tasteless, resembling
the pith which is to be found on the
jnside of cornstalks and Bimilar plants.
This statement, however, is open to
the question as to what "ripe" means.
It Is probable that by the time the
pithy condition has been reached the
banana has not only ripened, but has
continued farther and gone to seed.
Certain It Is that travelers return-

Fancy Fowl Fad.
There are signs of a craze in the
breeding of fancy poultry, says the
Field, Farm and Fireside. The Ameri-
can Farmer recently recorded the sale
of four chickens at Hope, Ind., for
$i*oo, and the fact that the seller had
a rooster for which he was asking
$2J00. Now comes a story that a
breeder at Racevllle, N. V., has sold
sixteen chickens—thirteen hens and
three roosters—for $3,400, to be shlpj
ped to Berlin. This Is heralded as thd
record price of the world for the same'
number of fowls, but to a common
layman it looks merely as a case of
"gold brick on the part of the German
buyer. Of course, no poultry, fancy
or otherwise, are worth this amount
of money, and it is time a halt was
called lest we run into a fancy poul-
try cra>:e as fatal as Hollands experi-
ence with tulips.
Profit in Hen Keeping.
Uniess chickens have the proper
conditions for health and growtT. vhey
can not thrive. That they live and
lay under most disadvantageous con-
ditions Roes to show how enormously
profitable they would be with the right
care. We have all heard of the flocks
"that are never fed a mouthful, never
knew a hen house, and kept laying all
winter." There Is always a reason for
this. Give hens the run of the barn
with full feed bins and a mow of clo-

Popular Canadian Priest.
One of the most popular priests In
Canada is Father O'Gorman (Janan-
ogue, on tho banks of the St. Law-
rence. His reverence Ik a keen judge
of horses and docs, never falling to
have at least one Irish setter at every
bench show in New York city. At the
recent exhibition there his entry won
the first prize, on hearing of which a
friend said to him: "1 suppose they
will make you a bishop now." Father
O'Gorman, who is not at all averse I
to a Joke on himself, answered read- j

The Farm and Poultry Plant.
The farmer that does not have a
well-equipped poultry plant loses the
opportunity of adding very materially
to his Income and he also misses that
very Important end—the providing of
his family with several kinds of luxu-
ries, poultry meat, and eggs. We
might gay that he misses seeing his
family enjoy broilers In the late
spring, old hens and roosters in tlfe
ummer, spring chickens in the fall
and fat cockerels and capons in the
winter, as well as the eggs. One of
the compensations for living in the
ountry is to have all of these things
Iresh and at will without sending
nany miles for them. Moreover, the
family of tho farmer need not stint
i.:self in these things as the family.

f.s family. That Is a poor way of
foing. The family should have at
I -ast as good as goes off the farm.
