BACK FROM THE DEAD.
A Bereaved Mother Sees ao Apparition
and is Comforted.
A handsome young weman, 21 years
old, with gulden bair aud blue eyes, hold
ing a letter in her hand, rang the door
bell of Mra. Meyer, on One Hundred and
Seventy-elxth street. New York, the other
day. When the door was opened Mrs.
Meyer, a woman well past middle age,
dressed In black, looked ouL She started
at her visitor s if she had been con
fronted with an apparition from the
other world. While the young woman
hesitatingly held out the letter Mrs.
Meyer made a short step forward, tried
to hold out her hands and then dropped
In a heap just Inside the door. The girl
shrieked and a young man ran out from
one of the room. He looked at the girl
much in the same, way as Mrs. Meyer
had; theu he rn up to het and putting
his arms around her before she knew
what he wa going to do, kissed her.
Together they carried Mrs. Meyer
a pleasant little parlor and laid her on a
tiofa. She came to presently, and stared
round like a person in a delirium.
"Who are you?" she asked. "You are
llre my Annie, who has been dead not
yet a wek."
The letter revealed a story which sounds
like a romance. The atory, which would
not be believed were facta not at hand to
prove It, dates back twenty-five years,
when Mrs. Meyer gave birth to twins.
Her health was wretched, and while she
was unconscious the father aud nurse
agreed to take away one of the babies.
She was placed In charge of Mrs. Hirsch
at 26 South' street, Hohoken, and with
her she since remained until she attained
full womanhood, when, on tbe death of
her sister, it waa decided that she should
return to tbe parental roof. Mrs. Meyer's
grief was thus turned to joy.
A MEXICAN STORM.
Distress Canscd by the Destruction of Many
Much damage waa done by storms In
Mexico the three last weeks of October.
In Sonora heavy rains, accompanied by
high winds and hall, blew down whole
groves of trees In the public parks; hall
cut crops on the plantations to pleees and
caused unlimited damage. This will re
sult in future hardship among the owners
of small plantations and laboring classes
It is estimated that it will take years to
repair the damage to the trees and
shrubbery. . . : -
The city bt Teroloapan fared even
worse. There the rain was so heavy that
it washed away the stone pavements ot
Streets and undermined the foundations
of many houses.,-One peculiar rosult of
the storm was that a number of graves
n the old bpanlsh cemetery bn the out
skirts of town were washed partially open
and after the storm a number of human
bones were found in a near-by street,
where they had been left by the floods.
A number of coffins willed were near the
surface were also exposed.
Along the northern border of Mexico
the Rio Grande river rose so rapidly that
the people of the cities of Portlrlo Diaz
and Villa de 'a Fuehte had to flee from
t heir homes without stopping for food or
cloth'ng. Many houses were swept Into
the river before the occupants could es
cape, and boats had to bo used lu rescuing
some of the families.
The distress in the storm-ravaged dis
tricts Is so great that President Diaz has
appropriated mwney for the relief of the
inhabitants, while subscription paper for
the relief of those made homeless by the
storm have been opened In all large cities.

peace the treaty must be kept to tbe
letter. I want peoe, but if any attempt
Is made to make war upon me I shall
make war upon you, and In your own
The reply ot Bogran was very humble

A Poultry Talk.
As I have before said, our young
growing fowls can bo fed almost en
tirely on green green stuff of various
kinds chopped and perhaps mixed wltii
a sprinkling of bran or middlings,
and even laying fowls can be fed
largely In the same manner. I have
corn of the large yellow variety as high
as ten feet, with of course quite a thick,
hard stalk, which I chop for them and
mix with their mush in equal quantities,
and they eat it all readily, eating first
the pieces of stalk which, although Bomf
hat pithy, are 8111 Juicy. Afterward
they eat the leaf, but eat all, and hav
ing a supply of chopped corn, carrot
or cabbage to work on through the day,
it keeps them bright and fresh looking
and in good condition. For this purpose
8unflof,r eeed fed to them occasionally
la good also, but like corn (or even more
so) it Is very fattening and should not
be generously fed, as a fat fowl la com
paratively a very poor layer, especially
where yarded and deprived of the ex
ercise It would have If it was on a free
I am Inclined to think that when fowls
are yarded, particularly in somewhat
small yards, the tendency is to over
feed, which I consider another argu
ment In favor of feeding green stuff
plentifully, as even when quite fleshy.
If fed In this way, it doea not seem
to lessen the number of eggs as It
would If they were fattened on corn or
On two acres of land, well watered,
enough green stuff can be raised to feed
2000 hens and to spare, and at trifling
cost, and 20 acres in grain, which In
these days of combined harvesters need
not cofct one (outside his own labor)
more than S2 or at the outside S3 an
acre in sacks, on hta own land, would
furnish the necessary grain. One man's
labor Is sufficient (except the harvesting)
for all this and the necessary care of
the fowlg, particularly if he has u family
Inclined to be helpful in the care of the
chicks. Therefore it seems to me that
we really could prepare ourselves to
meet successfully competion prices If
we gave ourselves determinedly to the
effort. We need very little, really, that
we cannot raise ourselves, such ns
gjavel, shells, charcoal and some lime.
These things, if we except the shells.
are ot trlnlng cost and fill a verj
small place In the expense list.
There Is a great deal in feeding fowl
In such a maner as to make them good
layers, and while I do not advocate the
foicelcg or stimulating of fowls to make
1 hem lay, I do believe in getting and
keeping them in the beet possible 'on
dltton by careiul and regular feeding of
good and nourishing food In proper
quantity sufficient but not too much,
as overfed fola become dumpy and re
fcBi to lay. By condition I do not mean
fat or flesh, but a bright, fresh, healthy
appearance. Indicating that the fowl is
in its beet state for the doing of Its full
duty as an egg-producer, and with the
fowl in this condition, not ouly are the
eggs produced more in number, but they
are larger and finer and contain more
nutriment, are richer in flavor and In
every way than an egg laid by a poorer
or an overfed fowl, and for this reason
eggs from properly kept poultry farms,
and known as "selected ranch eggs,"
are always lu demand at higher prices
than are eggs from poultry a'lowed tr
forage for their own food and getting
little care. Such eggs come Into mar
ket through the store and are known as
store eggs, " which, by the by, are
not up to the mark In goodness, as wit
ness the experience of a friend of mine
not leng since (during the hot mouths),
who on buying a dozen eggs at the store
and finding only three of the dozen
good, begged the grocer to give him
three more eggs, that he might stand a
show of getting a halt-dozn at least
out of the dozen. I am willing to ad
mit, however, that this was perhaps an
extreme case, and that the store eggs
are not always quite so bad as wure
Where one desires to feed egg food he
will find the following recipe, I think, as
good as any and as little hurtful ; In
fact, they are all things constantly
needed by fowls to keep them In proper
condition : Ten pounds of beet ground
scrap beef, 5 pounds fine ground bone,
2 pounds granulated or powdered char
coal, 1 pouud sulphur, 2 ounces cayenne
pepper, 4 ouncea salt. One quart ot thi
mixture to every hundred fowls say
twice a week will be found helpful and
is to be given in soft food.
In this connection I would say ah?o
that fowls should be fed morning and
noon a mush of middlings (unless very
rich, when bran should be mixed with
it) mixed with Bcaldlng water or milk,
aud milk Is much the best, as stiff as
can be made. At night give a feed oi
grain, principally wheat, but barluy, rye,
buckwheat or an occasional feed of corn
may be used also, and for the mush a
mixture of ground rye, barley and oat
with an equal bulk of bran may be used
In the place ot the middlings. I have
been for Borne time past substituting
fine-cut green stuff for half the mid
dlings or ground, grain mixture of the
mush, and find It excellent.
I know of no other thing so good at
a plentiful supply of green stuff to keep
fowls bright and fresh-looking, and con
sequently healthy. T. B. Goffroy of Lodi

The Cook of the Future,
I. for one. believe that the glrla of to
day, generally speaking, are not profi
cient cooks, and, 1 unhesitatingly add,
rightly bo. There is too much expected
of the girls of to-day, without saddling
upon t em the burdens which their moth
era were not able to bear. Women were
Intended to be something else besides
cooks. The numerous exhortations In
the papers and magazines In tbe "do
mestic economy " etyle tell far more than
their authors thought or Intended. They
tell tli at the girls of this age are not
taking kindly to cookery, but they also
tell that the writers cf such essays are
not able to discern In this fact the true
signs of progress. By preaching cookery
to a generation which la rapidly growing
beyond it they are unconsciously trying
to turn bick the wheels of time.
Ot iouise 1 understand that we are in
a transiion age. I know that we cannot
all at once reach the period in which
cooking will be done out of the house by
professionals. Just as weaving and dye
ing .are to-day. We scarcely stop to
think that our grandmothers spun and
colored th Ir own yarn. How many of
us know that "wire" originally meant a
weaver, and " spinster," or maiden, a
spinner ? But we have mothers at.d
daughters who never spun or wove; in
nother century there will be just as a
many mothers and daughters who never
The pferson who is arguing so forcibly
in favor of girls learning to cook is really
upholding the servility of women. He is
actually resenting the Idea that in these
days women are learning better.
I was once romantic enough to agree
with Lady Mary Wortley Montague
when ene said that preparing a dinner
for her husband was not menial employ
ment " it Is providing refreshment for
him whom I love. But the question has
occurred to me. Would he have done as
much for her? Would he not have
thought it uumanly?
In simple Justice, then, let us have
reciprocity before we begin to talk of
what is or is not manly or unmanly,
menial or dignified that is, if we can.
A woman's true mission is intellectual
and spirituaL Besides which, men have
already invaded woman's traditional
" sphere." Men, whether French or Af
rican, make better cooks than women;
and men American as well as Chinese
are performing the greatest part of our
laundry work all over the United States.
Now, when women are even partly eman
cipated from the cruelty of old custom,
why seek to reverse the present verdict
f centuries ? . - -.'
If y"u will say that boys ought to be
tauuht "domestic science" I will agree
that glrU nughL Boys have quite as
much time to learn as have girls, for
gills go to School quite as long and earn
their own living Just as soon; or if they
don't earn their living they can afford to
hire their cookery done; and bovs have
quite as much probable need for the ac
complUhment as have girls. If boys
and gl-ls both learned cookery, as a sort
of laying up for a rainy day, it would
le all right, for the Idea of the servility
of women would be taken away.
A short time ego I read an open letter
from a woman who said that she was
teaching her little daughter to be use
ful. The little daughter was 5 years
!d. The mother stated, with pride, that
tjis little daughter could sew on buttons
for her brother, " a year and a half
Mder." Now, I should have liked to box
that mother's ears. She was already in
stilling Into the minds of those two in
nocent little ones the pernicious doctrine
f the servtdty of woman. It that
brother was a year and a half older than
his sister he was big enough to sew on
his own buttons, and, If need be, his
If ever you see a man sitting at a
table while his wife stands by the stove
and turns cakes for him you may safely
Iraw your own conclusion as to the In
terior social position of the parties. A
gentleman, even - in -reduced circum
stances, would stand by the stove too
until there were cakes enough for botK,
aud then they would Bit -at the table to
gether. I believe that cooking is a suitable
mployment for . men, but not for
women. . Men are Detter cooks than
women. They know more about it, and
are, as we say, better "diners. The
time is rapidly coming when men will
do all our cooking. In the meantime, if
tfirla want to cook let them do it as am
,it urs. just as soma already dabble In
painting and photography; but under
stand, womanly character does not de
pend upon cookery, nor does the sanc
tity of the home, nor levo, friendship
nor hospitality, any more than they do
on coal stoves or gas ones.
