'JACK SPBATT.' The 'Chicago Evening Post' is re sponsible for the following variations j on the old nursery rhyme on Mr John Spratt, 'who could eat no fat,' and his wife, 'who could eat no lean': — (In Bostonese). John Spratt was temperamentally op posed to masticating or partaking . of any comestible which was olea ginous or pingetudinous even to the most Infinitesimal degree. His helpmeet was equally idiosyncratic, being unable to assimilate by deg lution any meat that was rich in protelds or hydrocarkoniferous con comitants except that which was devoid of unctious tissue. Consequently, It was remarkei that by a wise provision of nature, as evi denced in their being affinities, and, therefore, conjoined in the bonds of Hymen, and mutually dividing the meat that was provided for their appetency. They invariably rendered the platter de voii of any remainder whatsoever. CBy R-udyard Kipling). Now Spratt and his wife sat down to eat, and she would cat no lean, And he said flat, 'No fa...

'If a war were to- occur In the near future Iwtweeu Britain and another Power, should we be found wanting, and consequently handicapped, in the matter of air-ships?' Such was the question put to Major B. F. S. Baden Powell, the well-known Aeronaut, by n 'Dally Mail' representative ^yesterday. 'France,' said Major Baden-Powell, 'has made creat headway; Germany has now shot suddenly forward; but England will not be left behind. The authorities nrc keeping their eyes open to all new developments, and though I ?would not divulge any information of a technical character, I think I may state that experiments have been at tended with gooa. results.' ? , . Major Baden-Powell, however, reluc tantly admitted that the English ex- t perts bad grained so practical expert- - euce.

THE POULTRY YARD. SEASONABLE HINTS. ; Grain is the staple food for egg pro ducing poultry. Good plump wheat r stands first, then follow oats, maize, : barley, and peas In the order named. I Grain can. with advantage, be boiled or steamed before being fed to poultry. Cooked meat, meat scraps, or any kind of anltnal food will also assist egg production. But it must be used in ' moderation. If used too frequently, it will prove heating, and lead to unduly high condition. i The laying hen must neither be kept too fat nor too thin. .She requires to be in good herd condition. A regular diet and suitable food in moderate quantities is what Is required When a hen becomes broody, she does not return any profit to her owner. A rest from laying may, of course, do her good, but it is not profitable to al low the broodlness to continue too long. A box with a wire netting bottom pro vides a ready means of breaking a hen from brooding. Put the hen In It, and hang it by a wire or rope, so that It w...
