They are believed to have been the

((TT ISN'T really a trick ''ala'iI
I said the dentist to his patient,
JL the drummer, "though I dont
understand it myself, to tetl
the truth. It's a marvelous faculty
possessed by a friend of mine for
knowing what's going on in a place,
though he may not be personally pres
ent or hav any means of communi
cation. You can lay out here on the
table an entire pack of cards, face up,
and touch any one of the fifty-two.
Then step to the telephone and call
up my friend, and he'll tell you what
card you have touched."
"Impossible." said the patient "I'd
bet aluiost anything that it can't be
done. It might be worked if you did
the telephoning, and had some com
bination of words, or code of signals
to nse in talking to your friend, from
which he could tell what card had
been picked out But If I do the tele
phoningwhy, I'd wager a ten-spot he
couldn't tell the card."
"Done," said the dentist
He produced a pack of cards and
handed them to the drummer, who
shuffled them thoroughly and laid
them out face up, in four rows of thir
teen card each. At the dentist's re
quest the drummer touched one, that
chanced to be the ten-spot of dia
monds. "Now," said the dentist, "step to
the "phone, call 309 Certlandt ask for
my friend, tell him that you're at my
office and hare touched a card, and
ask him what card you touched."
The drummer did aa directed, and
after a moment's pause the words
came over the wire, "That was the
ten of diamonds you picked out
The money was the dentist'.
The loser pressed blra for an expla
nation of the trick, for trick he be
lieved It to be, but the dentist Insisted
that he was aa much In the dark as
the drummer, who thereupon left the
"There's a catch somewhere," said
he to his friend the credit man, to
whom he related his experience, "and
I'd give another ten-dollar bin to
know Just where."
"Well." said the credit man, "I'm
not averse to making a tenner or two
myself, and being forewarned, I think
I can detect his little game for it
must be a game, a you say. Suppose
I drop around to see yonr dentist
friend this afternoon? I have a little
Oiling that might just a well b done
now a any other time. He'll likely
get talking card with me I'll iteer
him on to it if he doesn't I'll make
a little wager with him myself, and
watch him closely, and perhaps I'll
see the game before It 1 really
worked, and be able to catch him in
the act You said it was worth ten
to you to know how it wa don. If
I meet you her at six and tell you
how, is that tenner miner

"provided, of course, you do not get
the secret by persuading the doctor
to tell you and as for that I'll trust
to your honor."
"Done," was the reply, and they
went their respective way.
Six o'clock came, and they met la
the dining room.
"Well," began the credit man,
"you're stung and so am L I went
through practically the same experi
ence that yon did picked out the ace
of spades, and the dentist' friend
promptly told m the card I had
touched. I watched the man carefully
during the whole proceedings. While
I wa getting 309 Cortlandt he paid
no attention to me at all, but contin

drummer reply, "and I'd give any

The two men did not meet again for
nearly year, when they ran across
one another on lower Fifth avenue one
day, and stopped to chat, and the
credit man remarked:
"By tb way, do you remember how
we two got fooled on that card game
of your dentist friend' last yesr?
That Ransome, who worked with him,
must be a pretty slick one. I'd like
to look the doctor up and ask him to
introduce me to the fellow."
"Ransomer exclaimed the other; "I
don't remember that the name was
Ransome. My memory isn't very good
a to that part of the occurrence, but
it strikes m It wa more like Ram
ay." "No, I'm pretty sore It was Ran
some," was the reply, "but of course
I may be mistaken. Ramsay or Ran
some, however, he was a pretty clever
fellow, and we were neatly don, both
of us. Lunch with me on th strength
Accordingly they adjourned to a
nearby cafe and were selecting from
the dinner card when the telephone
bell behind them rang. "Yes. This is
Cortlandt 800," they beard th head
They pricked up their ear on th
Instant That wa the very number
the dentist had used In hi card game.
The head waiter waited a minute.
"Yes, this Is Mr. Roberts talking to
you now," he said.
Then came another pause, and then,
"That curd you touched was th king
of club. Yes, th king. Good-by,"
and he at'ouce hung up fliVreccTver.
"Excuse me," siild the drummer, na
the man turned from the phone, "but
that' a queer conversation to have
over a telephone. Here' the price of
a good dlnuer for you If you will tell
u the game." ,
The head waiter hesitated a mo
ment, and then, accepting the prof
fered bill, replied:
"If the greatest ever. I've a friend
round In Twenty-third street who's a
dentist. He gets a customer talking
about tricks with curds, and tells him
he ha a friend who can tell what
card i touched In a pack lu,td out
face up, without being present at all,
Just by being called up on the phone
and told that a card has been picked
out The customer gets excited about
it and nine time out of ten offers to
bet it can't be done. If he doesu't
make the offer himself my friend does,
and it' mighty leUlom thut he taut
taken up. The guy lays out the paste
boards, touches one, and then calls
me up, and I tell him what card's
been touched every time. We Knock
out a hundred or more some weeks,
for the doc ha a big practice most
ly among iportlug men and other
gent that think they know a good
thing when they lee It I tell you,
It' the greatest thing ever. 'Kojv
money la no name for It"
"But" ald th credit man, "I don't
see It yet How can you tell from
here what card's been touched T
"Easy," was the reply, "I have a
little book here you can see It hang
ing by the phone, and If you'd been
watching me, you would have noticed
that I looked In It before telling what
the card was. The doctor has the
same thing pasted In the middle of
his engagement book. It' a list of
th fifty-two card In the pack, and
opposite the name of each card Is the
name of some person the same
namea In his list as in mine, in th
"8nppoe the guy touches the Queen
of Hearts. Doc looks In the book
that' easy, because he has opened It
a moment before maybe to put down
another engagement for the patient,
for all he know. Opposite the words

nam 'Jackson.' Doc says, "Call up
309 Cortlandt and ask for Mr. Jack
son." Th fellow doe aa I answer

GREEN FEED IS OF .
Green feed Is fully as Important
as either scratch grain or dry mash,
and comparatively few farmers feed
green food as It should be fed. A
truly successful poiiltrymun regards
green feed as Important as mash,
scratch grains nr water, and sees to
It that his birds are supplied dally
with green feed In some succulent
form. Sprouted outs are most deslr
able where It la convenient to sprout
them. The outs should be snaked In
warm water for 24 hours, then spread
In shallow trays, boxes, or pans, and
kept at a temperature of from 00 to
80 degrees until the stem sprout of
the oat Is between one-half and
three-quarters of an Inch In length.
At that stuge, the oats carry the
greatest amount of food value and
succulence. It should be remembered
that the green feed Is fed for succu
lence and not neceasurlly for green
If It I not convenient to sprout
oats, any root crop may be substi
tuted. Mangels, sugar beets, or raw
potatoes, carrots, turnips, beets, any
good root crop, fed raw, Is satis
factory green feed. When cooked,
however, they are still good feed,
but have lost their value aa green
feeds. In feeding root crops, the
roots should be chopped and fed In
trough or hopper so that all th
bird have access to them, says a
writer in th Michigan Farmer. Where
root crop are not obtainable, squash
or pumpkin chopped, or apples, may
prove satisfactory. Alfalfa that '.m
been steamed or soaked, Is better
than nothing, but, at best, a rather
poor substitute for a good succulent
green feed. The birds should be fed
at least once er day all af the green
feed. In some form or other, that they
will clean up.

Outside Poultry House
"Entertain your visitors outside of
th poultry house," I the word sent
to farmer by th Ohio Stat univer
sity. Chlckenpnx and other poultry dis
eases are often spread by people trav
eling from farm to farm, the univer
sity poultrymen explain. And with
eggs at present prices, they add, It is
wise to avoid all chance of letting
dlaease get a start In the flock.
"Chlckenpnx, roup and canker are
appearing all over the state," the let
ter to poultrymen continues. "We
know very little about the control of
these troubles once a flock Is Infected,
but must rely on prtventlv meas
ure." Among th preventive measure the
poultry specialists list these:
Sick birds should be marked and
excluded from the breeding pen. Pul
lets should be culled throughout the
growing season and the weaker birds
removed. Poultry houses must pro
vide ventilation In hot weather and
protection from draft and dampness
In cold weather.
Feed a complete ration, Including
mineral and vitamin snd plenty of
green feed. Handle a few birds ev
ery night to e whether they are In
good condition. Remove bird from
the flock when they show the first
symptom of sickness, for one sick
bird may contaminate the whole flock.
Health of Fowls
The best wny to keep In touch with
the health of the birds and to detect
digestive disorders, etc.. at the
earliest possible moment. Is to make
a practice of Inspecting the droppings
boards every morning. Simple loose
ness of the bowels, indigestion due
to too rich a ration, liver troubles,
excess animal food, etc., can all be
detected by the condition of th
droppings: and the general tendency
to Intestinal disorders thus shown
should receive Immediate attention.
