FOR THAT TIRED PEE.ING.
This Is the time of year when some
poultrymen get that tired feeling.
They treat their hens as sme farm
*rs do their farm machinery. You
may find the mowers down In the
meadow where the last swath was cut,
the' scythe In the sour apple tree and
the self binder in a snowdrift. That
man may belong to the grange. but he

mof'tgages. Canada thistles and trou
De. He needs spruce beer tonk-. His
chickens roost on the old pear tree and
the wagon wheel. and his taxes are
larger than his wheat crop.
When a man professes religion, there
are times when his liabilities are his
assets, and no one knows that his
bank vaults are full of hot air till they
blow up. Sometimes he succeeds In
fooling all the people all the time. But
when a man pretends to be a farmer
he has to show the goods. The condi
tion of his farm gives the game away.
He may gab all day on scientific prin
ciples in agriculture, but his neighbors
round the stove at the crossroads store
wink the other eye.
Such are some professed poultry
men. They like to visit other fello.ws'
plants to suggest improvements, to
judge their stoc and to brag up their
own goods. If ekle gets any one to
the good place, they will surely get
a seat up front with the angels. ,
After endtiihg a continual harangue
from one of these smart Alecks for sev
eral months we concluded to visit his
plant. Happily he was absent, and
we had a quiet view. We got enough.
His pens were old shacks illed in with
coal ashes. There were young scrubs
roosting on the lousy nests. Little

We felt like telephoning for a barrel
