G THE MS, Famllleft Hollered of Embftrrttmlnf Itt- enmbrancel— Some Thing* Worth Know* lag Abont Dog* and Other Animal*. Aft Inter+lew with ft Specialist. tii the summer season, when so many amities 6hnt tip their city residences nd go to the seaside of country* the isposition to be made of the family pet, >e it dog, eat ot bird, is often A taoot mbarrasaing question, tt is often a nuisance to take it along. Humanity demands th&t it left behind it must he >roperly car ed for. The numerous fanci- its, dealers and doctors of domestic pets ttthis city fully appreciate this situa* tion of affairs, and in stump* notify the mblio by signs on their establishments ihat with them can be found "summer )oard for domestic pets," A LAUGHS BUSINESS. "The business is quite an extensive one," said a keeper of one of these "pet lotels," "yet it is not as great as we would like it to be. I think that the ceeping of a house cat or dog is getting ess and less popular with people in ordinary circumstances. The wealthy )eople keep them because they have the •coin and servants to look after them. The wealthy, though, generally own iheir country or beach places and send ;heir pets there, so we get very few warders from them. 'While people in ordinary circumstances are giving up dogs and cats as louse pete they are growing fonder and lender of song birds. Dealers who take jirds to board are now doing a rushing Business. People of moderate means when they leave town generally go to lotels where they would not be allowed » take their pets, so it is from them we jet most of our hoarders. One Sixth avenue dealer is boarding nearly one hundred canaries i and many parrots and mockingbirds' Fifty cents a week is ihe charge for small birds and seventy- five cents for parrots. We charge $10 a month for a dog's board, and $7 a month 'or cats. "People who value their domestic pets should be very careful how they care tor them during the summer. Give your birds plenty of rape seed, and as little large seed as possible. Slip a piece of green stuff between the bars of the cage occasionally. Also give them a bit of apple once a day. Apple is a natural tonic to birds. Keep your cats indoors as much as possible, and brush their coats thoroughly every day. Peed them lightly, giving them fish and milk dishes, but no meat. HOW TO CARE FOIt DOGS. 'There is not one owner of a dog in ten who knows how to care for the animal. The dog should be kept as quiet as possible throughout the heat of the day, but he should not be chained or worried with restraint. He should be fed lightly and only twice a day, and change should be made in his food frequently. Dd\'t give him meat. Give Mm a bone -o chew once in a while. For staple fc give him milk dishes and vege tables, ''vx great many people will tell you a dog won't eat vegetables. If a dog turns away from vegetables the Irst time take them away at once. Give liim a fresh supply at the next meal. He will be hungry enough to eat them then, and soon will take to them as naturally as to meat. "Dogs should frequently be washed in cold water containing a little alcohol, Use common yellow soap. If you must muzzle your dog in summer, don't keep him without a muzzle all the rest of the year. Put it on him for a half hour or so every day, and he will get so used to it that when he has to wear it steadily it won't worry him. If people would do this for their pets there would be fewer so called mad dogs. Dogs are very likely to have a rush of blood to the head. That gives them a running fit. They froth at the mouth and people think they are mad. I never saw a mad dog, and I have been handling dogs for fifty years. When a dog gets one of these running fits he ia harmless, and if his head is ducked into a pail of cold water he will quickly come around." "At this time," said a South Fifth avenue bird fancier, "not one quarter of the birds and animals here are mine. Most of them are boarders. There are, besides the canaries, finches, thrushes, mocking birds, macaws, parrots, and in that row of strong wire cages are cats of valuable strains, and back further 1 have tho monkeys, while 1 keep the dogs in the basement and in kennels in the yard." The reporter walked into the yard and found kenneled there comfortably a St. Bernard, several fox terrjevs, pugs and black and tans, and there were probably twenty more in the basement. The fancier said that himself und his wife and grown daughter had their hands full in caring for ( feeding and doctoring the menagerie in the summer, but as regu- IH* custom was light he found it so profitable that from year to year he increased his facilities. He charges for birds from 35 to 50 cents a week, for cate $3, and for dogs and monkeys from 1 1 to $5 a week. "That St. Bernard over there," said the fancier, 'fcpll eat as much as you or 1, and then fre must be cleaned and washed and exercised occasionally."

Who that vef saw President Arthur can forget hd beautiful folds of bid trousers? feithef large nor small, with no bagging at the knee, but falling gracefully npoii his shoe they were indeed beautiful o behold. Such trousers were not sim- ly due to the tailor's art. They showed lis natural affinity for trottsets, and while the experiment might have been ttended with danger, there Is, heverthe- ess, a strong probability that Mr. Arhur would have made a pair of Bowery •hand-me-downs" look quite respectable. Of all the presidents of modern times he was the best clothed as to his nether garments. His great predecessor, Gen. Garfield, achieved trousers. His tailor was good, he cloth was in good taste, but the wearer gave little attention tothemat- ;er,.and even appeared in public once in trousers frayed at the heel. Hayes' rousers were barely respectable, while Jen. Grant was utterly indifferent to ds. Trousers were thrust upon him. le really had no taste for them. President Harrison's trousers are re- pectable and .good always, but they are full of wrinkles and of so conservative color as to be nonentities in the trouser world, and President Cleveland's legs were incased in broadcloth of a stiffness and newness of appearance that showed a woeful subordination of the wearer to ;he tender mercies of the tailor. This s a fatal mistaM A man's trousers jhould show the combined thought of ;he wearer and the tailor. Neither can accomplish them successfully alone,— Cor.

One night I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the purpose of examining some of the antiques exhibited ;here, and I took a look at the mummied cats, in which my little son, who was with me, is especially interested. Very solemn and ghastly are the swathed and silent tabbies, who perhaps gamboled around the feet of Moses and of Pharaoh's daughter, and it struck me in looking at them that the Egyptians of 3,000 years ago were a little ahead of the New York of today in their devotion to birds and quadrupeds. Something of this veneration for the brute creation has been transmitted to the Mohammedan of the east, who permits neither cats nor dogs to be slain, but provides meals and quarters for them. A learned pundit of that persuasion once expressed to tho late S. S. Cox, when minister to Turkey, his surprise that a SOsiety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals should be needed in a Christian country. Our brilliant "Sunset" was not usually at a loss for words either to conceal or express an idea, but on this occasion he confessed that he was routed by the unspeakable Turk, and had to take refuge in the assertion that this was the work of the Blavatsky sect of Buddhists. It is just possible that the gentle Turk believed him, but Mr. Cox was always of the opinion that he did not.—New York Letter. PULL strength pure .Cider Vinegar, made by F. C.
