Pric« 2S c*nt». Sold by » XL* only Pill* W take with Houd'i Gil Hamilton, of the Thorntown Argus, pays this poetic tribute to the hen. "We have read of Maud on a summer day, who raked barefooted the new mown hay; we have read of the maid in the early morn, who milked the cow with the crumpled horn, and we've read the lay that the poets sing, of the rustling corn and the lowers of spring; but of all the lays of the tongue and pen, there's naught ike the lays of the Indiana hen. Jong, long before Maud raked her hay, the Hoosier hen began to lay, and ere the milk maid stirs a peg, the hen is up and has dropped her egg; corn must rustle and the flowers must spring if they keep up with the barnyard ring. If Maud is needing i hat or gown, she goes to the store! ind obtains her suit with a basket _ull of fresh hen fruit; if the milk maid's beau makes a Sunday call, she loesn't feed him on milk at all, but works up eggs in a custard pie and tuffs him full of chicken fry; and when the old msn wants a horn, does he take to the druggist a load of corn? Not much. He simply robs a nest, o town he goes—you know the rest. He lingers, and he talks perchance, of true reform and correct finance, while his good wife stays at home and scowls, but Is saved from want by those self same fowls, for while the husband lingers there she watches the cackling hens with care and gathers the eggs and ttie eggs she'll hide, till she gets enough to stem the tide. Then hail, all hail the Hoosier hen, the greatest blessing of all to men. Throw up your hats and make Rome howl for the persevering barnyard fowl. Corn may be king, but It is plainly seen that the Hoosier hen is the Indiana queen." Old, Young People.
