EXCELLENT NESTS FOR HENS
Those Made of Metal Have Much to
Commend Them on Ground of
Cleanliness and Sanitation.
The use of metal and concrete iII
the constructionr of all kinds of buil
ings is' gaining rapidly in popularlty.
We see it not only in our houses. but
in the modern dairy barns and poultry
plants. This is brought about oni
grounds of economy and efllciency;
metal is stronger. wears longer, oc
cuiples less space, is immluiie to fire
and inimical to insect life and dis
ease. For the latter reason its lse(
appeals strongly to the poultry breed
er. Metal perches, iests. and even
houses have much to commend them
on grounds of cleanliness and good
sanitation. Especially is this true of
metal nests, a row of which is shown
in the illustration. Of all contrivan
ces the wooden box has proved itself
the home of lice and mites; its crev
ices and cracks are the delight of
these pestiferious enemies of fowl life.
To be sure the nesting material can
be changed and burned, the box
sprayed or fumigated, but in spite of
all precaution a few stray specimens
will escape in some crack or crevice

fear that you forget to turn the flock

This arrangement is attached to the

This release door should be covered

This will show the liens the light, and
they will be induced to reach it. In
so doing they will walk over the false
bottom, the one to which the trigger
wire is attached and her weight will

all the flock will be released.

Mary Bailey, a 16-year-old school-girl,

To combat a theory of suicide which

the girl had not been to the top story

very cheerful frame of mind.
George Parsons, a commercial trav

he saw the girl in the air .with her
skirt blown out like a balloon. She
was 25 or 30 feet high and she fell with
a crash. She was on a level with the
