THE DAILY TREE PRESS f r FEED FOR THE HEN Many poultry feeders have a very • aieager idea of the' feed required for «nehen a day. This information would Enable them to feed more intelligently -Cad more economically.' ', The- question before:, all poultry •rowers is how to feed their chickens Wore economically and yet 'get satisfactory results. In making changes in Jrtfons one must remember that any H|«oick or marked change will have a ™*«d effect on the hen. Changes should *e made gradually. It takes a month <•* a hen to respond to a new method •f feeding and if this new method can •%* adopted generally no ill: effects are .40te!y to follow. Frequently a new ra- ' TBwn IB criticized, when-the fault is not /•with the ration but with the feeder In - :4MddHK the sudden'change. The Uni- -»erslty of Missouri college of agrlcul- - "tare recommends corn, two-parts, and ••neat, one pert, for scratch .food. This .^-Constitutes two-thirds >of the ration. A ~"3S%sh consisting of equal .parts by weight of bran, shorts, cornmeal and **ef scrap Is recommended for the rest «<:the ration. At present prices for •ore and. wheat the- scratch .food mentioned will cost about $4 a hundred. At present prices for mash .constituents— *ran about $1.60, shorts '$2.60, corn- neal $4 and beef>scrap $4—the mash •Would cost tS a hundred." . If a hen requires 70 pounds of feed ; per year, 50 pounds scratch' food and •0 pounds mash, the cost £?r gra'ln and mash would be $2 and 60 cents .respec- •: lively. Thus the total food cost per ken-per year would be $2.60.' . The Handwriting Regarded as 4! an Index to Mental State That handwriting is regarded as an Index to certain mental conditions is well known..

If-so, it will help me Jto arrive at a better ^diagnosis of your casa" His years of •xperience tell him that any variation • In script may have some special significance, that a nervous quiver or ^ogary has a" story to relate concern- tog the nerves and their relation to as tndividnnl's mental state and thus he Is able to treat his case with greater •kactness.

INotoriety Is current familiarity with a nan's name, which is given by much mention of it. arising from any hind •»f conduct. Reputation is' favorable notoriety as distinguished from fame, which is permanent approval of great deeds or noble thoughts by the best Intelligence of mankind. But honor to absolutely individual^ and personal.. 3t is .conscious and willing loyalty to •the highest inward leading.—Howells. Longest Dictionary.

LOUIS Jiut Kfhtftr SXnnirtealciDi Lessons prom the Strike, An Old Country writer meditates thus:—The following lessons were taught the residents in England by the recent railway strike: Philosophy; the value ot humor; that there is no place like home; that places seem a long way off; that money is cheap; that I saccharine still exists; that fine' weather is a jewel; that we are argu-1 mentative; that a bicycle adds to one's independence; that walking is dignified, and that. scooting isn't; that roads were made before railways, and go to more places; that sweet negotiators are bitter fighters,;.that a motor car's capacity has nothing to do' with the number of its seats; that it is a long strike that worries a schoolboy;! j that liitle was -known of England's { highways and byways; that there ere more ways of getting to a place than flying; that we like to. be companionable; that few folks can state plain facts, plainly; how well off we have really been since the war ended.— Montreal. Herald. %debaker "Auto" Track—and Why First-—why "auto" track? Because "auto" track wagons fit the roads of, today. Because the track on nearly every country road is now made by automobiles; or -wagons -with v a standard' width of' 56 : inches: And because no other wagon width will fit' any of the roads in the very near future. Second—why Studebaker?, Because the manufacturers of Studebaker "auto" track wagons are and - 'ihave been wagorrspecialists since 1852. Sixty-seven years of wagon building by this concern has left its trail of improvement after improvement right up to the. last wagon.they have delivered to us; , ; Among the special construction' features brought to the highest possible state of perfection by these manufacturers, and included in _the. building of Studebaker "auto" track wagons, are the slope shoulder spoke, transom plate, trussed axle and dowel-pin.. All wooden parts are given a linseed oil bath before painting; ; : •And the makers of these wagons have also ^perfected their own exclusive method of "dishing" their wheels to insure their running on a plumb spoke* Because of the way in which they build set and gather into the gears Studebaker wheels revolve freely and '"chuck" between the skein/collar and; the axle nut. ; ••;•' These are but a few of the reasons why your next' •wagon should be, a Studebaker "auto*^ track.. You, yourself, will discover a hundred more once you see this wagon". And any that you may miss, we'll be glad to explain to you. Come in and look this wagon over whether you're ready to buy today or not. . ' ' Pt H. O HALL & CO.

We were Invited one night over to their house for supper, and as we have a little daughter we were supposed to take her. along. As we were on our way to.the house I remarked to my wife that- I did not like to go because of the phonograph and also remarked that it was too tin-canny. When we were through our meal, we went into the parlor and they began to play the phonograph. After the first song was over our little daughter, "who must have heard me remark about the phonograph,- exclaimed: "I guess you were rtght, daddy, when you said that that phonograph was tin-' canny." Never went into that house again.—Chicago Tribune. < Mayor Dietrich's House, There appears to liave been' some confusion as to the actual- house in which the "Marseillaise" was first sung. It was the house of Mayor Dietrich in the. Place Bvoglle in Strasbourg; No. 4 and not No. 2. In a sale contract, of the 32d of September, 1739, the house, is referred to as •flanked on one side by the Hotel des Nobles de Stein, now the property of 31r..-j[ean-Jacqiies Richshoffer, and on the other by the "hotel": of M. le Baron de Manger. Ttiese t'K-o houses are Nos. 3'and 5 of the Place Broglie. Mayor Dietrich's, must then/ neces- 'sarily, have been No. 4. Italy Densely Populated.
