Tho wise men of the East were guided
on their way by a star. The farmer's
wile is guided on her way by the light of
experience. There is no need of writing
anything upon this subject for tho en
lightenment of Mother Goose or Mother
Hubbard, because they know too well
how to perform this work; but it is for
young Mrs. Grundy that we write of our
method, because we know she will tell
others of our successful ways, and they
will do likewise, and thus the good seed
may be sown :ind bring forth its kind
some ten-fold, etc.
In tho lirst place, be sure the hen wants
to sit. Early in the season, when cold
■pells :iro liable to come any time, be
sure that site wants to ."it bad, as a short
absence from the eggs, after they once
begin to germinate, may chill them so
they will not hatch. In the next place,
be sure she is sitting in a place where no
other liens will bother her. If you have
v hatching room so much the better. 1
would not think of getting along without
a hatching room. The sitting hen can be
moved to her new quarters alter night,
tbe nes; kept rather dark for a day or
two, and she will get down to business
without any danger of quitting ber work.
Last season I bought some three dozen I
sitting hens right oil the nests, took them j
home, some three miles, in sacks, put
thcni on nests with a few eggs in my
hatching room, and had no trouble with
the whole outfit. It proved to my mind
that fitting hens could be moved and
made to sit where you want them. Of
course you must take tliem off for feed
and water and see that they go back on
their nest-, for a few days.
I like nests on tho ground, where there
an no skunks or animals to bother; it ia
Liable to cause broken eggs, in getting
on or off of the nest. These tobacco cad
dies make excellent nests. Dig a sod the
____c to go into tlie box, turn it upside
down in the box, scoop out a place deep
enough to make a good nest, scatter a lit
tle litter Ln it and put in your eggs. You
are well fixed. The sod holds moisture,
prevents cold from below to the eggs,
will retain heat when once warmed up,
and is nature's nest: for all of you have
noticed thai when hens steal off and hide j
their nests on the. ground in some fence!
corner, a good hatch is invariably the re- j
suit. Now, there's a hen on. and "thenext
thing is to test the eggs. After they have j
been sitting a week, throw away the bad
ones, replacing with fresh. Of" course a
person with experience can test out the
unfertile eggs in three or four days, but
one not an expert will probably require a
week's time. And just here let me re
mark, although not new to many it is to
others, thai rotten eggs are the eggs fertil
ized, but from some cause have been killed !
utter beginning to hatch. An egg not!
fertilized will never be.-,me addled, but
remain perfectly clear lor a Longtime,
even under a hen in the hottest ofl
weather. 1 bave often heard tin- remark.
"Eggs no good; all rotten.'' This is ai
BUresign that they were good, but from ,
Bomecanse the germ was killed after it I
began to hatch.
Always, if yon can. sot two or moro
hens at the saint- time; when they hatch
the chicks can be plated with one hen
and the remaining eggs placed under the
other hen for a few days nntil you are
sure all an* hatched that will do so, then
set the hen over with fresh eggs, 'litis
a mother and givea you a double
back action, as it were, towards getting
ont plenty of chicks.
If the weather is very dry about tlio
time the hens are to batch, sprinkle the
eggs, •'!■. better -;iii. put them in a bucket
of warm water for a tow minutes. Did
you ever notice bOW well duck eggs
hatch under a mother duck? Because
•he leaves her nest, takes a bath and re
turns, thus moistening her eggs.
Of course it is no tronble to sot a lion.

THE CHEAPNESS OF FAT.
It is a fact that a fat animal is cheaper
to produce than a lean one. as fat really
c;>-*ts nothing, so far as depriving the soil
of nourishment is concerned. The cheap
est article produced on the farm is butler,
if the labor is omitted, as butter takes
little or nothing from the soil. All car
bonaceous compounds derive their car
bon from the air. through the agency of
the leaves of plants, but the nitrogen and
mineral matter is derived principally
through the agency of the roots. As the
roots derive their nourishment from the
soil, they take from the soil that which is
stored in the plants, whether in the stalks
or seeds, but the fats, starch and sugar
are compounds that are formed by the
Leaves absorbing carbon from the atmos
phere, which unites with oxygen in the

When feeding a matured animal there
will be less mineral matter required than
for one that is growing, an*s experience
has long demonstrated that corn is one of
the best foods for that purpose known.

calculations to be based upon the actual
value of tiie material taken from the sod.
as well as upon the labor, there will then
be no difficulty in learning the reason of
certain lields becoming impoverished
while others improve.
Corn deprives the soil of but a small
amount of mineral matter, about jo per
cent, of dry corn being \\ ater, 10 per cent.
being flesh formers and 72per cent. being
lat and heat producing matter, though
these percentages vary according to vari
eties of corn, showing that the feeding of
corn to stock is economical, as the more
valuable elements are left in the manure,
lt is plain, then, that to make an animal
very fat will be more profitable, when
the fertility of the farm is considered,
than to dispose of it in a lean condition,
the extra weight not depriving the soil of
but a small proportion of plant food.
The surplus should never be sold in its
original condition if it can be changed to
