like a sack from the shoulders to the

sheath, hieh e races every line.
Their vc il, or yac?t'-ntJ:-, is made of
two musl'iii bands more or less thick,'
one of which covers the forehead, and
the other the lower and upper part of
the face as far as the eyes. Therefore,
the only part of a Turkish woman's

The Turkish woman is neither senti

she is a g-ourmand. She is fond of
sugar-plums, comfitures, sherbet and

diseases which are so common among
both the old and young chickens during
the spring and summer, .as there are
many points which bear to a greater or
less extent upon this subject of the suc
cessful hatching: of good healthy chicks.
The condition and thrift of the parent
stock has an iniportfintinfluer.ee on the
quality and thrift of the offspring pro
duced, and for this reason the breeder
should be verv carefnl to see that his
stock is in the best possible condition
for breeding when the time comes, if
he wishes to secure robust constitution
and vitality in the prospective flock.
The mating of the breeding stock is an
important part of the work, and it
would be a good idea to have the sexes
at least a year different in their ages
Good, well-formed pullets mated with
healthy, two-year-old cocks, make
about as desirable a breeding pen as
can be obtained, and if such stock are
used and they are fed on good, strength
ening food, and not allowed to become
too fat, the chicks are bound t be
thrifty and vigorous and will grow tip
in excellent shape to take the place of
the parent stock in the breeding pens
the following season.
The little chick needs attention the
Erst thing-, as soon as it emerges from
the shell and nntil it is well started and
growing nicely. There is nothing Ton
the farm that will show the dillerence
between good and bad management,
and quicker, than a young chick, and
any extra pains taken by the breeder
during the earliest part .of the chick s
life will be amply paid for by the bet
ter condition and quality of the chick
after it has become fully developed, and
tf course this will materially increase
the profits realized from such stock.
In feeding the little chick the breeder
should remember that its crop is very
sm'dl and the food digests quite readi
lv, and for this reason it should be re
filled frequently, so that no time will be
lost in tbejrrowth of the chick. Farm,

TENACITY OF PURPOSE.
A Mental AHrltrate l'oMad by Compart
tiTBlT Fw Wotoob-
Werarelv find in woman that fcenaeitj
of purpose and determination to over
come obstacles which is charactensti
of what we call a manly mind. "When
a woman is urged to any prolonged ot
powerful exercise of volition, tha
prompting cause is usually found in
the emotional side of her nature,
whereas in man we may generally ob
serve that the intellectnal is alone
sufficient to supply the needed mo
tive. Moreover, even in those lesser
displays of volitional activity which
are required in close reading or in
studious thought we may note a simi
lar deficiency. - In other words, women
are usually less able to concentrate
their attention; their minds are more
prone to what is called "wandering."
and we Seldom find that they
have specialized their studies or
pursuits to the same ex
tent that is usual among
mem This comparative weakness of
will is further manifested by the fre
quency among women of what is popu
larly termed indecision ot character.
The proverbial fickleness -of la donrux
mobile is due quite as much to vacilla
tion of Will as to other unstable quali
ties of mental constitution. The ready
firmness of decision which belongs by
nature to the truly masculine mind .is
very rarely to be met with in the fenii
nine; while it is not an unusual thing
to find anions women indecision of
character so habitual and pronounced
as to become highly painful to them
pelves leading to timidity and diffi
dence in adopting almost any line of
conduct where issues of importance are
concerned, and therefore leaving them
in the condition, as they graphically
express it, of not knowing their own
minds. G. J. Romanes, in Nine
THE FLY PLAGUE.
KeesitT of Protecting UT-Stock
From the AttmcUs of Insrcts.
The annoyance caused to animals by
files and mosquitoes often amounts to
positive agony, and at all times, in
what is called good corn weather, it is
sufficient to prevent the stock eating
enough to keep them in good condi
tion. The animals will stand in the
water or pass the greater part of the
day in the shade rather than expos
themselves to -the sunshine, going out
to eat only when driven by hunger.
They quickly lose flesh, the . flow ol
milk shrinks, and a loss is incurred
that can not be easily made good
again. At all times a good feed of
grain Is beneficial to stock, but it is
especially so when flies are very aa
noying, since it will do much to pre
vent shrinkage of flesh and milk.
Horses and milch cows may be pro
tected, in a great measure at least, by
wiping them all over wuh a sponge
dipped in soap suds in which a little
carbolic acid has been mixed. k Bulls
confined in stables often suffer enough
from the attacks of flies to drive them
half mad, and there is no doubt that
the continued fretting caused in this
way develops a savage disposition.
The most satisfactory results have fol
lowed from sponging, with soap suds
and carbolic acid mixed, a Jersey bull
confined in a stalL Chicago Tribune.

not less than four years standing, each
one of whom must have personal

circumstances, and who engage to pay
five hundred pounds eaeh to his cred

was joking, and it was no easy matter
to convince him of his good luck. How
ever, the pleasant truth sooner or later
dawned upon him. and if he shout

Tha Old Way of Worklnn Roada Snper-
eded by the Contract Syateia.
The annnal gathering of farmers to
work out their road tax with pick and
shovel "as the law directs, to ue an
old phrase, is fast giving way even in
the West to better methods and imple
ments. Lven the plow and dnme
scraper are now beiug largely super
seded by machine labor. , And the con
tract system, by which township trus
tees form roads through firms owning
machines, is now not rare. Acconlin
to an Jbastern paper the old way is no
less objectionable in the East, and in
relation to the better way there says:
The prevailing arguments against the
contract system are that persons not
owning real estate or personal prop
erty are, of course, exempt from taxa
tion, and consequently from road-work
ing; under the old sj'stem they are as
sessed one day at least, and mut work
or commute. And taxpayers, already
burdened, it may be, object to the pay
ment in cash for labor which they can
periorm themselves without great in
convenience. Here the objection to the
old system may mentioned, viz. : that
labor on the highway is one thing, on
the farm another. Every one knows
that, as a rule, the day's work on the
road is "cut short at both ends;
that boy's labor often count as man's
labor; that the roads are worked
once in the spring for all the year, and
at a time when such work may not be
most needed; that the day is often
nothing more nor less than a holiday.
If perfwd roads are the desideratum,
the old system fails to furnish them, or
only in exceptional cases. The con
tract system is more expensive until
the road-beds aro oneo more put in
good order, then less money need be
expended upon them. And yet, if r
man values his time and labor r.t the
low price of one dollar per day, the ei
neuse objection is largely overcome.
Where Lite contract system is adopted
and once fairly tried it is not trtten r
iected. Farrt, Field and Siock;:i.
