A Little Turkey Talk.
After successfully raising turkeys
for a number of years, I am able to
give a few practical and useful hints
on the subject which cannot fail to be
of great benefit to the beginner, or
perhaps to the ones who have been
trying to raise turkeys, with but poor
Turkeys, as we all know, are con
sidered more difficult to raise than
chickens, on account of their being
more sensitive to the damp and cold
of spring, and for this reason many
do not try to raise them at all.
I find that if turkeys are not
hatched before the first of May, it is
less trouble to care for them, and
they are more apt to live.
The common brown turkey is the
most profitable. I once tried the
white species, but found them poor
layers, and not so hardy.
It pays best to start with a small
flock. Never keep over winter more
than three hens and a gobbler. Right
here let me say, be sure to get your
gobbler and hens of different flocks
in starting, and if you have your own,
trade with some one, so that .they will
not be related to the hens.
Inbreeding is very frequently the
cause of blindness. I have seen in
quiries in many farm papers as to
the probable cause of blindness, and
experience has taught me that this
is the sole cause.
It is unwise to set the old turkey
the first time she gets broody, but
break her up to lay more eggs, and
set a hen or two in her p)lace.
When a hen is set, never use more
than eight or ten eggs, and even then
select a large hen.
Give her a warm place to sit, and
saturate the nest well with sulphur
to keep away vermin. Use sulphur
on the hen, also.
A hen that is to sit for four weeks
must be well fed and cared for. Give
her plenty of fresh water and exer
cise, and a small ration of corn meal
wet with milk once each day.
When a brood of little turkeys are
first hatched they are weakly, and
should not be taken from the nest
for at least twelve hours.
Warm, waterproof coops should be
provided for .them. Larg dry-goods
boxes, such as can be bought for
about twenty-five cents, make excel
Turn these on their sides, with
blocks under the corners to keep them
off the ground. Nail strips of board
over every crack. The top of the boxc
forms the front of the coop. Nail
laths across the front so close to
gether that the little ones cannot
crawl through, and make a little door,
at one end, through which to feed
and water them.
I feed them on bread and milk for
a few days, and then give them corn
meal wet with sweet milk, a pinch
of salt and some clean sand.
Dutch cheese is also good for a
change. They are very fond of it,
and it aids digestion. Give them
plenty of water, but do not leave it
where .they can tumble into it, as a
wetting is almost certain to be the
death of a little turkey.
When they are a few days old I
take a lath from the front of the
coop and let them run out, after the
dew is off. If the nights are chilly,
or the weather should be damp, coves
the coop well with a warm blanket.
The last year I raised turkeys I
learned something very helpful. I
put the coop under a large tree where
there was shade in the afternoon, and
found that the little "turks" never
left the shade, and did not run off
into the grass and weeds and get lost,
as they had formerly done. They
cannot endure the hot sun.
If you have hens with little chicks.
do not put the coops near the ones
where there are little turkeys, as a
hen with chicks will kill little tur
keys. A hen with turkeys will like
wise kill the chickens.
When the old turkey hens a.-e set

them as with the hen mother and
brood, and take care to provide a

Silage For Beef Cattle.
The. only reason the silo has not
been used so largely upon the beef
cattle and general stock farm is be
cause beef men have not given it
the trial that dairymen have. Those
who have used silage in the produc
tion of beef are universally in favor
of it. It proves a profitable addition
to a beef-feeding ratio4. Experi
ment station tests have presented re
suits which stand out prominently
in favi- of silage for beef feeding.
The latest evidence from this
source comes from the Indiana sta
tion, where a series of practical
beef feeding experiments are being
Spraying to Kill Weeds.
Directions for making a spraying
solution that will kill weeds are
given as follows: Empty a hundred
pound sack of sulphate of iron into
a fifty-gallon barrel: fill to the chine
with water, and stir with a hoe for
a few minutes until dissolved.
Strain through several thicknesses of
cheesecloth tacked over manhole of
the spraying machine, producing a
real mist free from drops. Use about
fifty gallons to the acre, and spray on
a bright warm day or on a dark damp
day; it does not matter so long as
rain does not come within eighteen or
twenty hours. This spray will not
harm grain crops, and will kill wild
mustard and various o.her weeds.
Supplying the Soil With Plant Food.
In fertilizing any crop the needs of
the soil upon which the crop is to be
grown are usually the leading consid
eration. A soil which had recently
been. well manured, or had a clover
sod plowed under, would likely be
pretty well provided with nitrogen.
and accordingly the mineral constit
uents would le the principal concern.
A heavy clay soil would not need the
potash that a sandy or muck soil
would require. The need for phos
phoric acid Is more general. After
the soil, the needs of the crop may be
considered.' For instance, a 200
bushel-to-the-acre crop of potatoes
will carry from the soil thirty-three
pounds of nitrogen, twenty pounds of
phosphoric acid and sixty-two pounds
of potash; a thirty bushel crop of
wheat, sixty-two pounds of nitrogen,
twenty pounds phosphoric acid and
twenty-six pounds of potash. For
use upon the same sort of soil, then,
the potato cron would call for a fer
tilizer richer in potash than would
wheat, if the store of plant food in
the soil is to be maintained. It
might be possible to omit the nitro
gen for the potatoes, since the latter
are usually closer to the clover sod or
manure or both in the rotation than
wheat.--Farmers' Home Journal.
.Engines For Farm Power.
'Some farms have steam boilers and
engines, but for ordinary use they are
too expensive to buy and too compli
cated to run. If a person only needs
a five or ten horse power engine he
don't want to bother with a steam en
gine. It takes too long to get up
steam and too much attention when
running. What he needs is a gasoline
The newer patterns of gasoline en
gines are practically automatic. You
can start one after breakfast in the
morning and it will run steadily until
noon without attention. They start
quickly, jump right into full power
and run at less expense than any oth
er farm motor power except wind
mills, and these are unreliable, be
cause they are subject to the whims
and fincies of the winds.
One mistake often made in buying
a farm gasoline engine is in getting
It too small. You need a little re
serve power. If you need two horse
power buy a four horse power en
gine. It don't cost any more to run
it to do two horse power worth of
work, then you have the extra power
when you need it. The cost of a size
larger is not a great deal when com
pared with the additional service it
will render.--The Epitomist.
Geese For Breeding.
A goose farm should have a run
nling stream of pure water so situated
that the fields may be laid out on
both sides of the stream. The fields
Ishould consist of good pasture with a
variety of grasses and of sufficient
size to support a gander and three
geese with their growing goslings.
One gander and three geese to a
pen are often better than any other
number for breeding purposes. A
shed on the north side of the field
opening to the south is all the p)rotec
tion the geese require except in the
extreme north. In the middle sec
tions of the United States geese sel
dom will use the shed except during
the laying and hatching seasons or
on extremely coid days in winter. The
sheds consequently need not be very
large nor expensive. But the roof
should be thoroughly waterproof and
the bottom provided with a foot or
more of straw.
Toulouse, Embden and Chinese are
the three varieties usually raised.
The Chinese lay more eggs than the
others, but the birds are not so valu

are likr" to pay the best. Stock

Novel Medicine Chest.
One of the most ingenious of inven
tions is the medicine chest designed
by an Arkansas man. With this
chest there is no excuse for a person
not taking his medicine on time or
for g.tting the medicines mixed. The
cabinet consists of a stand with two
little drawers at the upper corners
and a desk portion on top. In front
of the desk portion is a little door,
just about wide enough to admit a
bottle, and inside is a series of re
volving trays. One of these trays is
provided with numbers indicating
minutes, another with numbers indi
cating the hours of the day, and a
third with ordinals indicating the
hours of the day and night. Each
tray is divided into little compart
ments at each hour, so that at a cer
tain hour a bottle in that compart
ment will be waiting at the door.
This- is brought about by a dlock
mechanism which operates the trays,
all of which are connected to a shaft
and moved by the clock, the face of
which is visible in the front of the
stand. It now remains for the inven
tor to add an alarm attachment and
it will be practically impossible to
miss medicine time. - Washington
