SATURDAY, NOVEMBER ax, 1908- THE DE SERE T PARMvER 11
! into buff, but the R. I. Red Standard
calls for clear red undercolor, free
1 from slate, which is one of the points
-. which separates the breeds.
In all the above I have not said one
word about condition, but for the love
of poultry, don't send a bird to a
show that is not in the pink of con
dition, for sickness is often contracted
by the healthiest birds, and the 1osj
of a valuable show bird is something
I one never ceases to regret.
I Our doctor's son at home always
wanted chickens, but never attained
I his desire until he was married and
I settled in a home of his own. Then
I "Gene" bought a sitting of the best
I eggs he could get from a veteran
Brirrcd Rock breeder and raised a
1 en of beauties. He exhibited them,
and won over the veteran himself.
A prouder fellow I never saw, and his
joy was the delight of all who knew
him. Even his skeptical father en
joyed his victory, and the way he
hung around that pen was a sight to
sec. Well, a couple of weeks after the
show, his father stopped me on the
street to tell me that "Gene's" cock
erel had dicd. I tried to console him
by telling himi how many I had lost
from show room colds, but he testily
stopped me, saying, "You arc an old
soldier and arc used to it, but this is
poor 'Gene's first birds." Verily, I
thought, the Frenchman Rider Hag
gard tells about has lots of relatives.
You know the Frenchman was dread
fully frightened when the boat shot
into the side of the mountain, in the
underground river, and in the dtirk
ncss, amid the roaring waters of that
dreadful cavern, he prayed his prayer.
"O Lord save me, never mind the
rest, let them drown, for they arc
used to it, "but 01 Dear Lord, do save
One word in parting and I am done.
I Don't bank too much on winning. Do
the best you can, and await the out
come with patience, and remember
this motto: "Blessed1 arc they who
expect nothing, for they shall not be
Judge Chas. McClave, the genial
and popular ex-President of the A'. F.
A. says: "Fitting birds for the show
room is like sprucing up to go spark
ing, and it is no worse to put a bird
. in the best condition possible than
for a pretty girl to curl her hair when
.she expects a beau." But remember
$thart .missing feathers will count
against a bird just the same as"
hough they were present and off
colored, perhaps more, and where
birds have broken their wing-flights
fighting through fences, it detracts
from tlieir chances of winning. Mrs.
