^^ KEEPING FOWLS WARM. Device For Securing n Cnmfnrtnbia Boost- Ing Pli»ce In llleak Wcatlier. It goes without saying that poultry will yield small profit in winter if not kept thoroughly worm. Fowls will, however, endure somewhat cold quarters during the day time if kept briskly at -work scratching for their living, but PARTITION IN FRONT OF ROOSTS. cold nights must be specially guarded against. Country Gentleman furnishes a device for securing a warm roosting place that will doubtless commend itself to many poultry breeders. Above the platform are placed the roosts, and in front of these is a tight board partition coming down to within 15 or 18 inches of the platform. The ceiling, sides and back of the space thus inclosed being tight. The authority quoted says a good temperature will be maintained by the heat from the bodies of the fowls themselves, for this heat rises and cannot escape, while the impure gases, being heavier, descend to the floor below. If difficulty is had in getting fowls to go to roost in such an inclosed and partially darkened place, this added partition in front can be hinged at the top and raised during the day, being let down after the fowls have gone to roost. The barrel below the' platform, is in a convenient position to receive each day the accumulation of droppings upon the platform. If the hallway is at one side or in the rear of this roosting place, the nests can very conveniently be placed beneath the platform and made accessible from the hallway. Clipping tho Queen's Wings. Opinions are divided on the subject of wing clipping. The American Bee Journal says: If a queen's wings are clipped, it does not in the least prevent the issuing of a swarm. The clipped queen goes out, too, and may go back into the hive on the return of the swarm, or she may wander off to some distance and be found with a small cluster of bees. Sometimes she will enter a neighboring hive and be killed, if tho hives stand close together. The swarm which issues may return to the hive after sailing around in the air a short time, or it may not return to tho hive until after it has clustered and hung a half hour or longer. But instead of returning to its own hive the swarm may enter another hive where a swarm has returned previously on the same day, being attracted by the excitement 6till there. These disadvantages, to the minds of some, are so great that they prefer to watch for swarms with undipped queens. Others argue that it is still worse to have swarms go off to tho woods with a flying queen, and clipping the queen effectually bars anything of the kind. Even some who watch for Bwarms are strongly in favor of clipping queens' wings an a safeguard. Somo claim that n queen with clipped wings is more likely to be superseded. Those who clip deny this, saying that with clipped queens tho superseding is promptly noticed, whereas with wholo wings a quean may bo superseded without tho knowledge of the owner. Tho Graduated Wage System. A good plan to contract with men is on the graduated wage S3'stom, says Tho Farm Journal, which explains this sys tern as follows: The agreement is $200 and board. Be gin at $15 for October and November; in December reduce to $18; January, February and March, $10 each month; April, $12; May, $15; June, $80; July and August, $35 each month, and closo the year in September with $80. This gives tho man most wages in long days, when others are naming day wagus, and least in cold weather, making him satis fled tho year round. Of course tlio monthly rates named hero will need to be altered to suit ultorod circumstances iu different localities and under different methods of farming. An lixuollont Iturrul Carl. Some tiuiu ago a correspondent of tho Burul Now Yorker told about his barrel on wheels, which ho used for currying swill and slops from tho kitchen door.

The other day I heard an excellent notion propounded with regard to works of art. It was the establishment of a circulating picture gallery, which should occupy the same relation with regard to paintings as Mudie does iu respect of books. Of course the subscription would be higher, as the number of subscribers would bo limited. But the pictures would bo changed every month, so that a man need never be bored by ;he eternal sameness of tho walls. A story is told of a man who dined opposite to a fine work by Sir Joshua Rey- lolds for so many years that it at last jad to be moved, for it irritated him to such an extent that he threatened to hurl a decanter of port wine at it. The now society would effectually obviate any such annoyance. All the works would De for sale, so any subscriber taking a fancy to a particular picture might ob;ain the price from the secretary and on 5a3'inent thereof could become its possessor. The advantage of this system, especial- y in the present depressed state of tho ane art market, is obvious, and it would also be a benefit to the buyers, because ;hey would discover after the trial of a mouth whether they really liked a pic- ;ure or not. The terms of the subscription would of course be in proportion to the style of pictures supplied. Of course if you expected to have works by Sir Joshua cleynolds, George Romney and Sir John Everett Millais the payment would be very much more costly than if you only required a series of prints. But the subscriptions should be so regulated that it •would bring the circulating picture gal- .ery within the reach of all.—London Graphic. KISSING IN COURT. Polish Women Show Their Gratitude to Lawyer, Judge and Jury. Men running from women wishing to dss them agitated the county court at liong Island City the other day. Judge 3-arretson was on the bench. A jury md just announced a verdict of "not ruilty" in the case of Anna Wonzowlas- ca, » pretty Polish girl 16 years old, charged with a criminal offense. The verdict caused a commotion among & number of Polish women in the rear of ;ho courtroom. They rushed into the open space reserved for lawyers -and fell upon Counselor Merrill, who defended ;ho girl, and assailed him with fervent dsses. Each kiss was loud, and the counselor became red in the face. The jurymen smiled, but their turn •was coming. Before they realized what was going to happen, tho women made an assault upon tho jury box and grab- jed the members of the jury around iheir necks and imprinted kisses on their iheeks and hands. The men struggled, aut the chairs prevented their escape un;il all but the foreman had received an affectionate embrace. Foreman Armstrong ran for the door. It was a short, sharp race, but the foreman woa. Judge Garretson frowned from the bench. He was too surprised to act until it was nearly all over. He was recovering his composure when the women started for him. The judge was saved by the interference of the court officer, who succeeded in getting the women to leave the courtroom. The earnestness of the women had such an effect on the spectators present that they made up a purse of §20 for tho girl. She left the court light of heart.—New York Times. A PHYSIOLOGICAL CURIOSITY. Bccovery of n Man Whoso Lung* Were Exposed by u Wood Saw. Gus Carlson, who was accidentally thrown against a steam wood saw Borne four months ago and u gash cut across his breastbone and ribs, exposing his lungs and other internal mechanism, has nearly recovered and will soon be able to go out. The doctors were%nuch interested in his case, or rather in viewing •what was inside the case, as it is very seldom thoy get » chance to watch tho expansion and contraction of a sot of lungs. Tho most remarkable thing about it wns to see how gradually tho lungs were filled and how suddenly they collapsed when tho breath expired. The doctors would have liked to leave a peephole open in Carlson's thorax, but were afraid ho might contract pneumonia through it,—Portland Orogouian. A llrltlih Cublntit Secret. A London correspondent says that the renewed agitation on the subject of the navy has lud to the disclosure of another cabinet secret. It is now known that Gladstone stood absolutely alone among ills ministers in opposing tho largo in crease iu tho naval expenditure. He was unyielding to tho end, und this was one of his principal reasons for his decision to resign, u decision which ho did not communicate to any one of his official advisors, und which they first learned through the Pull Mull Gazette's premature publication, Whllo tllrU' Murrlacui With IiidUni.

WASHINGTON, April 9.— The unceremonious manner in which the freight carload of unemployed from Cincinnati wns taken in charge by the police Saturday night is a foretaste of the reception which awaits Coxey's army. The men will be brought into police court upon charges of vagrancy. The local law against vagrants applies to all men without visible means of support, who are destitute and likely to become charges upon the city; who have no avocation or means of gaining a livelihood, or who solicit alms. The penalty is 00 days in the workhouse at hard labor, «but it rests within the discretion of the judge to accept their promises to leave the city at once or to accept $200 as surety that they will not become public charges. Captain Primrose, the leader of the band, may find Imusolf in more sevious trouble than his followers. There is an old law on the statute books, which passed in 1830 and has never been repealed. -which makes it an offense to bring into the District of Columbia any destitute people who are likely to become public charges with a penalty from $25 to $bO for each offense. The police authorities are now considering the ad- visibility of bringing a charge of violating this law against the .leader, in which ease his flues, with the alternative of the workhouse imprisonment, would amount to a heavy punishment, Mny Do Likewise With Coxey, The same charge may be brought against General Coxey, if disaster does not overtake the army of, the commonweal before it completes its itinerary. Of course the vagrancy act may not be brought into application against his followers, and besides there are other laws which it is the avowed and advertised purpose of the Coxeyites to break, One is the act of congress regulating the use of the capitol grounds, which forbids any gathering for the demonstration or parade, the making of any oration or use of threatening language, the display of any banner or device to attract attention. The other is a local law which torbids men to congregate on the steps of a public or private building. It rests within the discretion of the vice president and speaker of the house to suspend tho capitol regulations for any proper purpose, and perhaps Coxoy's agents will apply to them for permission to carry out their program. Dllllcult Question to Solve. Major Moore, chief of police, snid, in speaking of the march of Coxey: • ''These laws are on the statute book and we have no discretion about it. We must enforce them if Coxey's army arrives, unless congress should give them permission to congregate on the eapitol steps. The details of the movement against Cosey is kept a secret. No doubt he will be met at the district limits and if tho numbers of his army are too great for the police to cope with tho local militia will he called to their aid. What to do with the army when it arrives and is taken into custody, if it should be, is a difficult question. The jails and station houses of the city will not accommodate such a crowd. To simply repulse the men and forbid them to enter the district would be to turn them loose on the suburban residents of Virginia and Maryland, and this is tin aspect of the matter which gives rise to much uneasiness here. Nut Connected With Commonweal. Major Moore has received a letter .from tbe chief of police of Alleghany City, Pa., describing the Coxey men in most uncomplimentary terms. He declares there are several professional criminals iu their ranks; that four or five burglaries were committed by them while they were in hia city and that there would have been more depredations but for tho close police survoilance over the army during its stay. Colonel Redstone, tho Washington representative of Coxoy, said concerning tho men arrested here; "This body of men is not connected with tho commonweal aray as no Coxey men will come on until word is previously sent to our headquarters; anil none will come in disorder or without military discipline. Thorn will bo no resistance of the luw and UOHO of the men will enter the city until tho main lino arrives." l4iUov lAtttuurn Inuoiwiid. WASHINGTON, April 0.— Many of tho labor loudens in this city uro ineoivsod ut S the arrest of the 41 unemployed and do- claro tho proceeding was without lawful authority. They nay also that Major Moore had no right to dual with thoso men in a iiiamier intondud as u "horrible example" for Coxey's army. It is claimed when the case comos into court there will bo plenty friends of tho or 1 rested men, including a constitutional j lawyer and member of congress and if 1 authority 1ms boon overstepped iu this ! arrest, the proper people will he wade to suffer for it.__ _ UTAH MIUTIA^ CALLED OUT.

The governor aud railway officiate held another consultation at 3 o'clock and tho governor was informed that the industrials had been hatted several mites west ot the Utah line pending arrangements, which tho Southern Pacific was trying to make with the Union Pacific for transportation east. At 4 o'clock the Union Pacific gave its ultimatum that it would not carry the men less than full rates and the Southern Pacific then ordered the train brought into Ogden in defiance of the governor's protest. Governor West expressed himself in strong terms to Knapp and characterized the wholo matter as a conspiracy between the Southern Pacific and the state of California. The train arrived in Ogden about 0 o'clock, was switched into the yards aud surrounded by the military, nnd it was more than two hours before they got anything to eat. They were allowed to sleep in the roundhouse. The Union Pacific refuses to modify its ultimatum, while the territorial authorities are urging the Southern Pacific to take them west. The men are reported to be peaceful and orderly so far, but determined to go east if possible. Arrived at Brownsville Sunday. BROWNSVILLE, Pa., April 9.— This ;own welcomed the army of the commonweal of Christ fairly well. It was not until 7 o'clock Sunday evening that the bugle was heard sounding down the valley and just as twilight was deepen- ng into night the commonweal marched over the Bridgeport bridge and entered the city. Ten thousand weary watchers viewed the camp of 2I»4. The army camped in Bracebridge hall in the center of the town and the marchars reared early. BLACK SMALLPOX IN CHICAGO. iauscil tho Liveliest Kind of Commotion In tlio Pollco Station. CHIC AGO, April 9.— A case of black smallpox caused the liveliest kind of a commotion in the Harris street police station Sunday evening. A man suffler- ng with the plague died in a cell and torn 20 to 30 officers and 45 prisoners were exposed to the disease. The victim's name was Benson Sherman, but nothing further has been ascertained regarding him. At 4 o'clock in tho after- 10011 he was brought to the police station by a man who informed the desk ser- ;eant that Sherman was drunk' and asked the police to lock him up until ho was sober. This was done and about 'our hours after the lockup keeper wticed that Sherman's face had turned jlack. The health department was notified and as soon as the health officer saw. ;he man he pronounced the disease black smallpox. Dr. Guun of the health office at once md a thorough fumigation of the place made. Everything was done to relieve ihe suffering of the man and preparation!) were made to remove him to the pest louse, but before the ambulance arrived 10 died. Inspector Laughlin, on learning that the victim of smallpox had died at the station, ordered the place quarau- ;ined. Dr. Gann also ordered that every- jody in the station be vaccinated and a corps of physicians were set at work on ;he arms of tho prisoners and officers. It was thought best to remove tho prisoners and this was done, the 45 occupants of the cells being transferred to the Twenty second street station, Indian* Feiuted at Cody'* Kxponao.
