THE ROMANCE OF WORDS
ONE of the most general of
superstitions the world
over Is that a child born with
a "caul" or membrane over the
bead Is not only a soothsayer
but an extremely fortunate per
son. In Scotland, as well as In
France, the caul Itself Is regard
ed as bringing good fortune to
anyone who possesses It, and
high prices have been paid for
these unusual appendages.
The French word for a child
born In this manner Is
"masque," meaning "masked," a
word which Is analogous to
the Latin "masca," for aorcerer
which possibly explains the
connection between the caul and
power attributed to those born
with It. It was from the French
masque, with a slight change
of final syllable, that the Eng
lish "mascot" meaning a lucky
piece was derived. After be
ing used for years by gamblers
and others of a superstitious
nature, the word was finally

GUINEA FOWL IN
Of Big Value in Various Sections

MAKES GOOD AS FOLICEMAH
Hotels and Restaurants In Large
Cities Eager to Secure Young
Birds Which Are Tender and
' of Fine Flavor.
The great majority of guinea fowl
are raised in small flocks of from 10
to 25 upon farms In the Middle West
and In the South, but a few of the
large poultry raisers, particularly
those who are within easy reach of tho
large Eastern markets, make A prac
tice of raising a hundred or so guineas
each year. Many farmers keep a pair
or a trio of guineas more as a novelty
than for profit, and from these a small
flock Is raised.

The guinea fowl doubtless would be
more popular on farms were it not for

cry, say poultry specialists

Peculiar Cry of Guinea Givea Warn
ing of Marauding in Poultry Yard.
Agriculture. However, some people
look on this cry as an argument In the
guinea's favor, as it gives warning of
marauders 1b the poultry yard. Simi
larly, their pugnacious disposition
while sometimes causing disturbances
among the other poultry also makes
them show fight against hawks and
other commowenemles, so that guineas
sometimes are kept as guards over the
poultry yard. Often a few guineas are
raised with a flock of turkeys and al
lowed to roost In the same tree, where
they can give warning If any theft Is
attempted during the night
Used as Substitute.
The value of the guinea fowl as a
substitute for game birds such as
grouse, partridge, quail and pheasant
Is becoming more and more recognized
by those who are fond of this class of
meat and the demand for these fowls
is Increasing steadily. Many hotels
and restaurants in the large cities are
eager to secure prime young guineas,
and often they are served at banquets
and club dinners as a special delicacy.
When well cooked, guineas are attrac
tive In appearance, although darker
than common fowls, and the flesh of
young birds Is tender and of especial
ly fine flavor, resembling that of wild
game. Like all other fowl, old guineas
are very likely to be tough and rather
