A \ v... -- - - - ASTER is the chief festlval of the Church, and Y 3 of course, the 'Little ( JP Men and Women always V/3_/-*Y look forward to it with I pleasure. Festivals of some kind seem to be necessary to all the members of the human race, big or little, and nothing could be more natural than that there should be one at this time of the year, when nature is waking up from her long winter sleep to put on new life. There has perhaps never been a time when there was not a celebration of some kind at the end of winter, for people must express their joy in one way or another, even if it is only as the little girls do, when, at the first signs of spring, tbey invariably with one accord get out their skipping ropes, which may have been laid away and forgotten for eleven months. The word Easter is probably derived from Eastrc, the name of the Saxon goddess of spring, and it ia easy to imagine that before our heathen ancestors were converted to Christianity they used to have a great spr...

6 " Save Good Breeders. There are many more old sows being sent to market this year than last. Thiß indicates that farmers are selling off their big, heavy sows and keeping young ones for coming breeden, or are reducing their breeding herds. Whatever else you do, save a good bunch of breeders. It 1B a mistake to sell too close, because of high prices.—Progressive Farmer. Seamless Milk Cans. The best milk vesselß are those that have no seams in them, since dirt and old cakes of milk will get down in the seams and develop bad germs in spite of anything reasonable that can be done to prevent it. If vessels must be used with seams in them, the seams should be as smooth as possible, to reduce the space where dirt can lodge. Solder can be used to fill the seams smoothly.—Progressive Farmer. Pure Bred Poultry. To start with pure bred poultry It le not necessary to invest a small fortune, as many believe. If you have a mixed flock and do not wish to dispose of them at once and start with pu...

Centuries of Warfare Over Christ's Tomb An Unbroken Record of Contention and Strife Since the Days of the Emperor Constantine. . ' ISTORY tells us that in LVVU I /j3 the one place In all the ' I world where noise and Cj strife should be for- < Cy) ever hushed, and only 2<l \ v i sounds of worship be heard, men met in bloody battle recently. Crucifixes and censors were the weapons. Franciscan and Armenian monks were the combatants, and the scene of the struggle was the tomb of Christ. For a time the battlefield of the crusades echoed again to the sound of clashing arms, the groans of the wounded, the cheers of the victors. But this was not a battle of believer against unbeliever, heathen versus Christian. The contestants were monks sworn to teach the doctrines of the Prince of Peace. This happened only a short time before the anniversary of the first Easter day, when the Saviour of the race rose from the dead. lp the centuries that have elapsed y»l_the {onndftt-...

THE COST OF NAVAL ENGAGEMENTS. Exptrnt of Saa Battln So Craat That Only Riehait Nations Can Afford to Fight Now. Roagbly speaking, a naval gun •will do effective abooting at a range la mllea equal to its calibre in inches. For example, a twelve-inch •an would be effective at twelve mllea; a slx-inch gun at six miles, and ao on. Tbis does not mean tbe extreme range of tbe gun, for at tbe extreme elevation of about forty-five degrees, tbe gun will really carry farther, but this extreme elevation, besides t making good marksmanship the question, would create too much" strain on carriage and deck, owing to the recoil at discharge, to be practicable on board ship. The question regarding tbe cost o! firing the great guns of a battleship can only be answered in generalities and averages. Tbe cost 1b great, and varies with the kind of ammunition used. 'Armor-plerclng shell, made ol highly tempered steel of finest quality, is more expensive than tbe common shell, made of lower-grade steel. T...

VOL. XI. MRS. M. JABALY, Who is Called the Most Beautiful Syrian Woman in the United States. Do Hornets Keep Guard Over Their Nests ? By Dr. H. C. McCook. Is a hornet's nest guarded by sentinels, after the manner of ant hills? It is not so easy to decide, for their private habits do not invite familiar approach. But some experiments seemed to point that way. No noises, however near or strident, had the least effect upon the workers. Blow on divers instruments as loudly and shrilly as I would, they poured in and out of the gate or labored on the walls, intent wholly upon their own afairs. But at the slightest jar upon the window or shutter, out flew a bevy of irate insects, and flung themselves against the wire window screen with an angry "bump" that showed how good was their intention, at least, to de fend their home. It was always so; a squad of workers, free and ready for aggressive duty, seemed to be lurking near the gate, prompt to sally forth upon alarm. Even at night a few kep...

2 THE REAL HUSKING BEE There will be a husking to-night The boys have selected about thirty huge and solid pumpkins for seats, and the stocks of corn stand twenty feet thick, all around outside. Wires are fixed, on which to hang the lanterns of the workers. Inside the seats, the whole centre of the yard is left clear for the clean golden ears after they are stripped. Joslah Andrews and Ephraim Foote are the chief competitors; only old man Dennison gives them a close race. It is a curious and pretty piece of business. At 7 o'clock every seat is occupied with laughing, story-telling farmers, farmers' boys and farmhands. Grandfather Hull gives the signal. Lifting a stalk deftly, so as to bring the ear to the left hand, he strips the husks down with the right, and then twists the golden spur cunningly out of the stalk and the husks —quick as a flash tossing the ear to the ground. Soon there is a pile, and each man and boy has his own heap. Now all are at work. The jokes grow fewer, the ...

s h Girl and a Secret, s g> 'By Alice LMlse Lee. ~ JR TR TRTKtRTR Of course it' was a careless thing for Brown and Hammond to do—talk aver their business affairs in a public place—but tnere were a few details to arrange concerning the purchase of the South Bluff before Hammond took the express to New York. "If any one should have overheard us," he began, as the whistle of the express sounded far down the valley, 'it might cost us pretty dear." He glanced nervously round the dark end 3f the station platform, which was covered with boxes. Brown t rose from a seat on a box. 'No danger," he returned, abstracted* ly. "Coast's clear; nothing here but Freight," motioning at the same time toward the lighted end of the platform. "The ears are all up there." Hammond picked up his suit case with a brief nod. "A pair of good ears just now might easily ruin our plans. Ohce let those North Bluff fellows get hold of the fact that we are after the South Bluff, and they'd wake up to its v...

; Cost of Fitting Silos. We cost of filling silos is carefully gone over in Farmers' Bulletin 292 from investigations made on thirtyone forms in Wisconsin and Michigan. The average yield of ailage on the whole number of forma was about nine tons. The average cost of filling the silos was sixty-four cents, the range being ixom forty-six to olghtyalx cents. The average cost per acre for putting away the corn was $5.98. The difference in cost was not wbolly due to management, but was partly explained by long bauls, lodged corn or accidents to machinery. It is noticeable that the lowest costs were obtained by gasoline-engine outfits and blowers in. place of tbe carrier eleva- ■ tors. Tbe lowest costs were obtained where the working force was most equally balanced so as to keep every* body busy all the time. Where large loads were hauled the cost was somewhat reduced. Corn harvesters were used on some farms and the corn handled in bundles. Tbe corn crop was the one used on all farms but ...
