Most womenfolk find it no easy Job
to kill a chicken. Of course they
should never be asked to do it if
there is a man in sight, or within call,
but if she has to, the guillotine will
help her to do it easily and neatly.
An old corn knife groufd to a sharp
edge and kept sharp, fastened to a
block, will do the work. Place the

SUMMER FEED FOR POULTRY
Chickens May Be Turned Into Garden
With Profit Except at Certain
Periods-Eat Many Bugs.
Lettuce is a good feed for poultry,
and a bed of it should be started early
for the purpose of giving the fowls a
supply of green stuff. The fowls like
it. best if they can pull it from the
stem as it stands in the bed. Cutting
up the lettuce and feeding It in the
yard is wasteful, as the fowls eat lit
tle of it when fed in that way.
Rape is a good plant to grow for
the fowls. The seeds aro quite large
and so germinate easily. if the fowls
have stripped one part of the poultry
yard of grass, that part can be fenced
off and rape seed sown on it. The
rape will grow rapidly, even if the
soil is not dug up. The fowls should
he turned into it when it has reached
a height of about one foot. They
will strip the sides off the leaf and
leave the stems and mid-veins. As
soon as the potultry are taken out of
the yard for a time, the plants will
begin to push out new growth from
the stems and mid-veins, and this
process can he continue(d all summer.
There is a saying that hens and
gardens do not go well together. This
is a mistake; the liens can be turned
into the garden with profit to them
selves and the garden except during
certain periods. One of these is just
after the seeds have been planted and
are coming up. At sucih a'time the
liens will dei much damage by scratch

the tomatoes are ripe, as they will
pick them. After the plants in the
spring have becomie thoroughly start
ed. the liens cnn safely he turned in.
The mere they scratch the better it
is for the plants. They also help to
kee'p the plants free from hugs.
The farmer cannot afford to keep
his poultry shut up in summer, ex
cept during short periods, as men
tionedl abiove. The great advantage
lie farmer has over thle city and vil
lage poultry raiser is that he can
make his poultry work for him. The
hug population of every farm is very
great, and this population is dIrawn
upon by the fowls.
Tf any of the fowls show scaly legs
the best remedly is kerosene mixedl
with lard and sulphur. Apply it warm

apart. Then, since this trouble is

FREED FROM SKIN DISEASE
"Our boy was born in Toronto on
Det. 13, 19.08, and when three months
old a slight rash appeared on his
cheek. What appeared to be a wa

broke, matter would run out, starting
new blisters until his entire. face,
bead and shoulders were a mass of
scabs and you could not see a par
tice of clear skin. Other parts of
his body were affected, but not to
such an extent. We tried about every
idvertised remedy without avail, in

uffering and one in particular, the

to a hospital, lHe was treated as an

worse, if anything. We then called
In another doctor arid inside of a
week the boy was, to all appearances,
cured and the doctor said his work
was done. Rut the very next day it
broke out as bad as ever.
"We decided that it could not be
eured and must run its course and so
we just kept his arms ban'saged to
his side to prevent his tearing his
flesh. We left. Toronto and shortly
after our arrival in D~uluth, the Cuti
