Royal princes look very much like
ordinary folks when you don’t know
who they are. The boy in the picture
is Prince Henry of England, third son
of King George V. The prince is in
his fourteenth year and, like all the
children of the English ruler, he has
been trained in a common sense way.
Queen Mary is a rather strict disciplin
arian and her boys are brought up
much as are other English boys of good
social standing. When Prince Henry
was snapped by the camera man he
was tramping with his brother. Prince
George, who is two years younger. The
picture was taken in the hills of Wales.
Tree Toad’s Change of Colors.
A correspondent of Farm and Fire
ride has the following to say about
‘When a boy the writer often read of
a wonderful’ animal, called a chame
leon. which was said to have the power
of taking the color of the object by
which it was surrounded. But he
never saw a chameleon and always felt
a little ‘Thomas like’ in regard to its
existence. However, he has since
learned that there is an animal that
has some of the powers attributed to
the chameleon. That is the tree toad.
Its life history is similar to that of
the toads and frogs in the early stages.
"To show these various changes we
took one that was found on an old
board and placed at in a white pitcher.
When placed in it the toad was a dingy
brown, but after a few hours in the
pitcher it was white with a slight
creamy tint and with a few pale brown
dots. On being placed in a window be
side some green moss it soon took that
color. Make the experiment of putting
one in various colored locations and see
the changes. You will be greatly inter
A Writing Experiment.
The following is an entertaining ex
periment in a party of young people.
One of those present is asked if he can
write his name and will, of course, an
swer “Yes." He is then subjected to
the following test: He is asked to sit
down in a chair, a paper folded several
times is placed on his forehead, a lead
pencil is handed him, and he ia asked
to write his name on the paper. As
little time as possible to reflect should
be left him. If he hesitates he should
be told to just go ahead, and in most
cases it will be found that he starts
writing his name at the left temple
and to the amusement of the others
present writes It so that Iv is legible
only when held in front of a mirror
unless one is practiced in reading re
The king or horseshoe crab chews its
food with its legs. This is an actual
tact, the little animal grinding its mor
sels between its thighs before it passes
nem over to its mouth.
The frog, owing to Its peculiar struc
ture. eannot breathe with the mouth
qpea. and if it were forcibly kept open
tae animal would die of suffocation.

Now that women are wearing frocks
cut so low at the neck for every oc
casion both indoors and out the scarf
for protection against the wintry winds
is almost a necessity with street cos
tumes. Os course, milady envelops her
pretty throat in handsome furs, but
at church, the matinee and the like,
there are apt to be drafts, so one in
genious couturier has sent along with
his chic little hat a scarf of chiffon
edged with ostrich. These scarfs, in
addition to protection, are very smart

The All Important Tango Frock.
When once speaks of dance frocks
this season the model designed to
tango immediately suggests itself.
Such a hold have the Argentine dances
upon the terpsichorean public that to
dance is to turkey trot, fish walk, etc.

are abandoned for the girdle by danc

footwear reprices the French dancing
slipper, and the frock must be slit at
the sides to make the “dip" possible.

charming affair in which to tango
gracefully. Several shades of yellow,
toning from a pale lemon to almost a
flame color, are artistically combined

Althoush they are making less re

One who has tried it recommends a
mixture of ten pounds of bicarbonate
of soda and a bushel of sawdust or
sand as an excellent material for ex
tinguishing a blaze of gasoline. In
this connection it is well to remember
that water simply scatters a gasoline
blaze, but will not put it out.
As the writer thinks back on his boy
hood days he remembers that he had
a very warm spot in his heart (or
stomach perhaps it was) for the Tol
man sweet. It was mighty appetizing
in the raw when he came In hungry
and when nicely baked and dressed in
rich Jersey cream was fit for a king.
While the past season has not been
favorable for some kinds of garden
trucK. the writer finds an exception in
the case of tomatoes. Never has he
picked larger or finer trust from vines
that were given just average care.
And ripe fruit from this same patch
was still being used on tbe table on
the 11th of October.
Those who have grown sweet pota
toes for the first time this year should
remember that the tubers ought to be
thoroughly dried out before being
stored. In sweet potato storage houses
a temperature of from 90 to 100 de
grees F. is maintained until the drying
process is completed, after which the
temperature is reduced to about 50
Some shingle roofs that the writer
knows of are still giving very good
service after thirty-two years. It hard
ly need be said that these shingles,
which have shed rain and snow for
nearly a generation, were not the kind
of shingles that are on the market to
day. Neither were the nails which
were used in nailing them on like the
shingle nails that one can get today.
One of the last jobs for a bright,
warm day in the orchard is looking
over the trees and making way with
any borers that can be found, whose
presence is indicated by the brownish,
sawdust-like excreta which is usually
thrown out of an opening in the bark
close to the surface of the ground. A
sharp jackknife and a wire or pliable
peeled twig are the only tools needed.
If reports are correct the lands lying
along the seacoast in Washington and
Oregon have a future as cranberry
growing districts. The soil and mois
ture conditions are all that could be
asked, while the mild winter tempera
tures give a very favorable condition.
Cape Cod growers who have bought
land in the districts mentioned have
started cranberry farms and are meet
ing with a large measure of success.
For some irs past practically 10

If any rabbits have been breeding
this season about the place it is none
too soon now to begin to shoot or trap
them for stews or fries for the table or
for providing a meat ration for the
hens. Allowed to live into the winter,
these rodents are almost sure to raise
hob with the younger orchard trees or
with the raspberry or rosebush canes
in the garden, both of which they rel
ish when the snow is deep and other
green food is scarce.
As soon as the trash In the garden
gets dry enough it will be a good idea
to rake it up and burn it. This will
destroy a good many weed seeds and
will also expose to the action of the
elements and to the birds and poultry
a good many insects of one kind and
another. If the garden has not been
plowed in the fall for some time it
would be well to plow it. This will
get rid of a good many more insect
pests and will expose the soil to the
action of the elements during the win
ter months, which will be found bene
Many an orchardist who this year
kept up clean cultivation until well to
ward the Ist of August has seen the
yield he looked for cut down threefold
or more, due as a result of the unusual
ly dry weather that followed. This
condition noted was greatly aggravat
ed by the unusually warm and dry
conditions which prevailed the latter
part of June and early July, following
a fall and winter season that had been
the dryest in years. Should such con
ditions prevail again cultivation should
be continued clear up to picking time,
or wdl into September.
A friend who this year used nitrogen
on his alfalfa seed just prior to sowing
it early in August has a remarkably
even and vigorous stand of the legume.
Those who have seen this field and
also new seedings of alfalfa in Nebras
ka, Kansas and Oklahoma report it to
be as fine as any alfalfa fields in those
states, where conditions are consider
ed more favorable for the proper de
velopment of tbe legume. The treating
of the seed with this nitrogen culture
places with it as it is put into the
ground the bacteria which are favora
ble to the transference of the nitrogen
from the air to the root nodules.
Points In Wedding Etiquette.
With the exception of May, which is
considered an unlucky month, and
Lent, the quiet season, there is no time
of the year when wedding ceremonies
are not constantly taking place.
As might be expected, the prepara
tions for a wedding take up not a little
time and foretlr -ight. There are • >
many small details to be considered,
various minor points of etiquette to
notice, and a hundred and one things
to remember if the actual day Is to be
gone through by all concerned without
hitch or inconvenience.
The magnificence or simplicity of the
ceremony depends, of course, on the
worldly position of the bride and bride
groom, though certainly the present
day tendency is toward a rather dis
proportionate display, as every year
presents become n;ore numerous and
costly, the bride’s trousseau more elab
orate, while immense sums are expend
ed on decorations, catering and such
The popular fashion of white satin
and orange blossoms for the bride’s
attire still holds its own, though there
are occasional innovations made such
as the wearing of gold or silver bro
cade and touches of color on the train,
while quite recently, instead of the
usual white bouquet or sheaf of lilies,
the bride carried a great bunch of
For winter weddings muffs of fur,
lace and chiffon have replaced the
flowers, or sometimes a prayer book
bound in white and silver.
The invitations are sent out a full
three or four weeks beforehand in the
name of the bride’s parents, the bride
groom supplying a list of those of his
own friends whom he wishes invited.
As regards the bouquets, those of
the bride, bridesmaids and bride’s
mother are supplied by the bridegroom,
who also pays all fees connected with
The cost of the reception * and the
carriages for taking the bride and
guests to church are provided by the
bride’s parents, but the bridegroom
pays for the carriage or motorcar to
the station after the reception.
At one time it was considered incor
rect for a widow to be followed by
bridesmaids on the occasion of her sec
ond marriage, but this rule is often
broken. Sometimes, however, the cus
tom of a “matron of honor” is followed
The number of bridesmaids varies
considerably, four to six being most
usual, but two, ten or twelve, or in
their place several small children, are
often se -i.
The ‘ bridesmaid holds the
bride's t and gloves during the
eervic. H the bridesmaids and

~p Your Hands Quiet.
The -eji.Js of some people seem to
have acquited the secret of perpetual
motion. A girl who has this fault
should set about conquering it im
mediately if she does not want to do
damage to the nerves of those who
have to be with her and wreck her
own. The instant she realizes that
she is pulling at her hair combs, or
collar, or giving her belt a vicious jab,
let her stop and hold her hands fixed
in her lap. no matter what effort it
Look about in the theater, or tea
room, or street car. Hardly a girl has
her hands in repose. Most are tugging
at some article of dress as they talk,
or, what is worse, fingering the dress
of a companion.
The manager of an office where there
are many girls had to put up a notice
that clerks must not touch articles on
her desk when they came to speak to
her. She says that one when making
a report would pick up a pencil and
draw weird figures on the desk blot
ter. The next hooked paper clips to
gether, making a long chain that the
manager had the work of unhooking;
another tapped the desk with a pencil
during her conversation. In short,
scarcely a girl came and stood beside
the desk with quiet hands.
The wall around a publie telephone
is another Indication that most people
while using the line must still be
working with their hands, for alwsys
there Is a mass of pencil scratchings
as far as the hand can reach.
It is a duty to listen attentively
the name of- one who is Introduced.
Avoid all mistakes by asking politely
for the name that you have not beaidi
or that has been mumbled by a
"Will you tell me again your name?
I was not quick enough to hear it" la
a graceful little way of correcting an
error. By all mean? do net guess at a
name, nor do not conclude that a man
and woman who enter a room and are
introduced together are necessarily
married. A guest has no right to re
fuse an Introduction under the roes
of a hostess who has invited many per*
sons whose private feelings are nat
urally unknown to her. A courteous
acknowledgment, even between un
friendly ones, te due your hostess.
After tbe poitte, forma! acceptance of
an introduction a separation can be
effected. But don’t forget to save
others the embarrassment of an ill
bred display of persewd feelings.
