Against so to speak a unique enter Primo under the name of tho Quot Village Pony farm a Bays a writer in Rural now yorker. It is owned by o couple of gentlemen in the town who Are engaged in other. Business but who. And their Quot farming profitable. They have about 150 acres of Hillside pasture land Only a Short distance from town. In the. Village they have their barns and considerable room is required for Ltd the ponies. I should a judge that As much is Given them As is usually allotted to a Hunter and Fisherman Billy went a Hunting on tho Hillside a amp re not a beast did Billy find though he looked everywhere Billy went Pryl shins but the Pond was dry not a single Flash a fought he though for hours did he try.

Sixty five ponies Ore now in the lot i do not know whether to Call it flock Herd of what and i Quot presume some More might be added in a usual season. It is now so dry that any amount of pasture would be Short. It is Only about two years since the business was begun in Earnest and it is needless to say that a Large proportion of the ponies have been purchased. Quite a number however have been bred and the Colts Are find ing a ready Sale some of them at Only a few weeks of age. In that Case they Are delivered to the purchasers Only. After they reach the ago of four months. These Colts sell if of Good form and marking at $70 to ?125. A Pony four years old was pointed out to me that 1b valued at $160, and a pair of smaller ones Well matched. Are valued at .$500. It requires.-. Little More to keep these ponies than it does to keep a Good sized dog i was told. No Grain is fed unless for be anal reasons and they eat but a moderate Aiho unt of Hay. Breeding ponies is a Little difficult and i judge that one should not count too Many chickens before hatching. The business at. Pjs ars. To.

Illustrations an explanation showing How obstacle May be Rev moved without tearing paper. Cut a piece of heavy paper in the shape shown in Fig.-1 and make two cuts Down the Genter and a Slit As Long As the two cuts Are wide at a Point about one Inch below then. A string is put through the Slit the Long cuts and Back through the Slit and then a Button is fastened to each end. The Small Slit should not be so Large As the buttons. The trick is to remove the string. The solution Fig quite simple says popular mechanics. Fold the paper in the Middle and the part removing the string. Between the Long cuts will form a Loop. Bend this Loop Down and pass it through the Small Blit turn the paper around and it will appear As shown in Fig 2.one of the buttons May now be drawn through and the paper restored to its original shape.

Poor spelling to common important Branch of education seems to be neglected in 8choola of to Day. V misspelling among the educated or the supposedly educated is apparently on the increase a thanks it May be to the passing of the a spelling Bee Quot and to the crowding of tho school cur Rlou Lum with a multitude of studies unknown and undreamed of by our sturdy ancestors and thank also perhaps to the present movement for phonetic spelling which the indolent Are tempted to interpret a Quot spelling As you please a it in a-statistical1 analysis of the spelling of his students prof.

Sketches shown a Here give a Good idea of the latitude in autumn styles a yet there is no distinct fashion nor a distinct change in the Tilhou Ette of the fashionable woman As there was last year when , Directoire first Carnein. The Moyet age gown with the Long Cuirass Bod acc plaited skirt and tho Sash tied Over the Knees is unbecoming to almost every one yet it has been popular during the latter part of the summer. But few women who have seen it on others or who have worn these fish wife garments will care to try a now Experiment of tho same Ebert. The High Waist line is still found on Many of the Best models yet there heed be no particular Waist line at All for fashion permits the Waist line at the Normal place or a Low Louis Quinze pointed Belt line is also first coat which might to used for a maternity garment is of Black Satin cloth with a Large Watteau Plait in the Back and a blight gathering in front fastened with very Large Jet buttons.

It is trimmed with bands of material stitched and ornamented with Large Button which like All the Best , a re of highly polished Wood inlaid with a greenish looking wooden Button Are quite tho rage and come in the most marvelous. Combination a both of color and polish. A the last figure is an afternoon dress of embroidered crepe de a Hino in Pale yellow. The Robe is a sell Flat Long Princess Andis draped about the Knees with a wide embroidered Sash. The Walter Raleigh coat which hangs from the shoulders is of Fine Gauze with Silver embroidery and an edging and Collar of Sable these extraordinary Coats Are a momentary. Freak of fashion and Are naturally not intended to give warmth but merely to enhance tho Cost and perhaps tho effect of tho costume. The figure on the left is a child s play frock of King s Blue Linen Over Glumpe of White Lawn. The figure on the right i a House frock for a child of embroidered heavy Linen edged with Blue band. Have taken to the Scarf accessory. Of Early victorian Days received with favor by the fashionable. One of the prettiest pieces of drapery that one can own this Winter is the Early victorian Scarf about three Yards Long made of Chiffon cloth on which Aro narrow bands of fur or Marabou. They Are a trifle Over a Yard wide. They Are worn across the shoulders and the ends drop Over tho arms. If one is tall it is riot amiss to have a Scarf the ends of which reach to the hem of the skirt.i1 for evening these Are made in vivid colors and for. Afternoons they Are in Black Taupo deep Violet and several shades of Gray. Ono of the most effective is of Black Chiffon cloth run with strips of Ermine. This is worn with a Princess gown of White Broadcloth and a poke Bonnet of Black velvet with Large Crown surrounded by upstanding Black tips. From the Back Are two streamers of Black velvet that fall to the floor. A older women and those in mourning will Wear the Long scarfs of Black Chiffon cloth banded with Black Lynx. Naturally these will hotbed worn Over Coats no matter How elaborate the latter May be. They used with one piece gown and would look absurd Over a skirt with a separate Blouse. There is not. Much danger however of the latter being adopted this year except for strictly informal Wear the White Blouse is confined this season within narrow limitations. This fact alone May somewhat reduce the exaggerated prices for also should go without saying that the Long sweeping scar should not be worn with a Small Jaunty hat. It needs a hat with a brim. It is not a in tho pictures with a russian Toque. First Aid to embroiderers a number of suggestions that hav amp it been proved to be essential to a Good work. Be careful in your Choice of Needles. Avoid one that is too Small for the1 thread wears it thin and toughens it. Mercerized Cottons can be used with an Ordinary Needle of tho right size a crewel Needle is Best for. Silk. In choosing a crewel Needle Toko those with Oval eyes and rather Short. They can be bought in mixed packages. Keep such a package in the work bag that you need not. Fall Back on the wrong kind of Emery is even More important in embroidery than in Ordinary sewing., a Sticky Needle makes Ono pull at tho work in a Way fatal to smoothness / a stiletto should form part of the equipment of every embroidery bag. Those of Ivory never rust the material. There is a new stiletto with a gauge that insures even sized holes. When doing a piece of work that will not Wash paste tissue paper Over the part that is finished and keep it rolled up with Trio embroidery inside a White apron and hands that Are frequently washed Are big helps in keeping work clean. Be careful in doing silk embroidery too near a window for out of doors where soot and dust blow on it. Wash a buttonhole Edge if possible before it 1b Cut out. It makes a firmer Edge and is less Apt to Ravel. In laundering coloured embroideries do if yourself unless your laundress not Only knows How but is willing to take time and trouble. Black moire hat. Parrots on umbrellas. One of the new fancies is to a fave a dark Green umbrella with a Long Black handle finished with a most Iii like Parrot. Ail the colors on the Bird Are perfect. It is already the trick among smartly dressed women to carry the handle upward so that the Bird seems to be sitting on the shoulder it is very difficult not to believe at a Short distance that the Bird is genuine. Quaint As the fancy la it is better than carrying a live marmoset lined with Black velvet. Or isl a Large Bunch of Violeta
