The Poultry Business in Our Coun

The following aro portions of an essay
recently read at Worcester West District
Grange by Robert 11. Havener, Hub
lam well aware that many agricult
urists look upon the so-called hen farmer
with a sort of contempt or pity. Without
a thought as to the importance of the
industry, let me quote irons report of
United States Department of Agriculture
for tho year 1889:
"The time has como when the imnor
tanco of the poultry interests should bo
recognized in this department. The
poultry products of the I'nited States had
a farm value of at least $200,000,000 last
year, and no less thad 10,000,000 dozen
eggs were imported at a first cost of over
fifteen cents per dozen, or nearly $2,500,-j
(KH), while the average annual valuo of
such importation during tho past four
years has been £_-,21t'..*'__,.." Such being
the facts, we can look ior ward with confi
dence to the future ofthe poultry business.
■At read in the "Book of Books" that
man was "given dominion over the fowls
oftho air," and all improvement which
has been made is tiio work of man. To
the fowl which Laid perhaps twenty
live ."•-..gs, man said, lay fifty e.^gs, and
straightway he made the necessary con
ditions and fifty eggs were laid. But
man is never satisfied and has continued
down th rough the ages to command
the hen to lay more, consequently we
have breeds to-day that will lay *__jU eggs
per year with proper treatment.
It would bo sau indeed to spoil a good
dairyman to make a poor preacher or
poulterer. If you cannot take pleasure
or comfort in your business or calling,
you will never know success. If you can
Bee no beauty in your poultry or in your
piga, you Will never attain "tho best re
sults with them. You must be in love
with your business, then if you have a
hen or a pig that does not thrive you will
know it, and v. ill look for the cause and
will remedy it. .Now every ono that i!<tea
not hate' a hen can produce fall and
winter eggs if he will mako the necessary
1. Secure good, vigorous stock.
12. Do not try to keep too many in a
family. A pasture large enough for
three cows would not be expected to
.;. Do not feed whole corn or oornmeaL
Feed in the morning something of this
sort: Roiled potatoes, turnips or cabbage,
clover rowcn chopped into half-inch
lengths or shorter if you can. and scald,
mix with shorts, a little commeal or
buckwheat meal, ground oats or barley
with a little ground meat and a pinch of
salt, [would not advise a constant diet
of any one mixture. But the greater the
variety the better the result.
1 >< >ift forget to keep your fowls at work;
tin y must liave exercise. Litter the floor
witb leaves or chopped straw or hay. and
scatter a few oats, wheat, buckwheat or
barley, and le. them scratch for it. Feed
email quantities at a time, but foed well.
Do not keep large amounts of food by
them that they can get without work.
Idleness always breeds diseaso. Hang
up a cabbage, turnip or beet where they
can gel il it' they will only work for it: or
a bundle of oats, barley or wheat —any-
thing u» keep them at work. Don't tor
get to give good, clean water at least
twice a day, and they will thank you for
a little mitK once in a while if yon havo
it to spare; and don't forget to supply
them with plenty of grit. This is very
important ii you keep a large number on
a limited space. For grit give gravel,
broken crockery, oyster or clam shells.
And another thing let me emphasize—
avoid damp, close quartets. And in
winter look out for cold draughts of air
such as come from broken panes of glass
or top ventilation.
I need not say much about cleanliness.
You all know that it is necessary even
with hogs, if you wish to attain the best
r.sults. The droppings should be re
moved from under the roosts at least
three limes per week. Every day is
hens must liave a place to dust
themselves if you do not wish to feed a
lot of vermin. l>ry sand, sifted coal
ashes, with a little sulphur, will be excel
lent. Dry coal ashes for poultry houses
I value very highly. Perhaps you will
say the dust settles on everything about
the houses. That is why I value it.
After your chicks are hatched feed
thiiii for growth. As soon as you can
distinguish the males separate them from
the pullet-, wiiich .should have as wide a
range as possible. Feed very liberally,
not forgetting beef scraps, but avoid the
so-called poultry invigorator or egg food.
And if you do not want to do the work
don't blame your hens because they do
not lay. Instead of manufacturing our
own eggfl we send onr grain abroad and
then buy the eggs produced by the pauper
hens of Canada and Europe. The poul
try business in onr country is ye. in ita
infancy. We talk of artificial incubation
as though it were something new, when
it haa bi en practiced thousands of years
by the Egyptians and destined soon to
become a universal method in our
BOMS OF TITE PBCAV.
The Hickoria pecan ia one of the best of
all nuts, and is found wild only in North
America. It abounds in the rich river
and creek bottom lands of the Mi->is
sippi Valley, especially in Texas, Louisi
ana, Mississippi, Indian Territory, Ar
kansas and Missouri, liven as far north
as southeastern low nit grows wild, but
the region of profitable culture does not
probably extend so for north as the other
species Of the hickory family. In the
Gulf States is found the best climate for
tins nut. and already there are considera
ble orchards of it planted there. It is
needless to expect success in poor soil,
for, like all nut trees, the pecan grows to
the greatest perfection in rich, moist al
luvium. Many of the lands subject to
periodical Hoods along tho Mississippi
River and tributary streams might be
ted to tlie pecan with great profit.
Once well established these orchards in
rich bottoms would yield large quanti
ties of thi very best nuts, and would not
be injured by tlie floods, which usually
rlong before the tune of gathering
the crop. There is'great variation in the
nuts as to isize, shape, thickness of shell
and quality ofthe kernel.
Mil... AM> BUTTERMILK IN SUM VER.
"While milk and buttermilk ur.' excel
lent for fowls Rnd chickens, ii will not be
beneficial to give either unless fresli and
unchanged. To place milk where it is
liable to Oe fori i : become sour,
may be the cause of bowel disease. Itis
true that some persons t'rvd sour milk to
poultry, but wo have known it to kill
w hen given too liberally.
Skimmed milk isa very cheap arl
ns. and there is no necessity
.'•r giving it in any condition except
iresh, especially in toe summer season.
The hens will not drink sour milk if thoy
can get milk that is fresli. tor chicks,
th<' \>est method is to mix the food with
milk, let the chicks eat all they desire at
one timo and dean away that which is
! "or '.'owls that liave a range, a pan
b milk at uiirht will be all that
'. the shape of food, as
they will find all they wish on llio range.
Milk is highly * is and answers
a purpose as a part ofthe ration, but, like
all other substances allowed, ii gives the
suits when in a fresh and whole
some condition.—Farm and Fin sl !<■.
CATER TO Til X iMiii.lo.
D poultry is raised for market, tho
•poul'ii-yman c:\n learn tnucb in a.short
time by inspecting the market stalls.
The object Bnould be to learn jnst what
the buyers demand, and then aim to sup
ply them. It will be lound that all
markets are not alike, and that a close
ration on the different markets, and
also (<n the demands ofthe consumers, us
v. el! as tiie seasons when certain kinds of
ponltry are preferred} mil give the former
or poultry man au advantage which will
enable him to secure not ouly better
prices, bnt how to breed for the best re
suits in Belling poultry. It is the buyer
who is to be satisfied, as he fixes the price
according to the quality and his desires.
If yellow- logs on poultry are preferred in
certain markets, and the buyers are will
ing to pay something extra for snch, it is
to the interest of the farmer to raise fowls
with yellow legs. The best breed for his
purpose is thai which ho finds will give
the buyers the greatest satisfaction, and
in so regulating his breeding he is uot
liable to orr.—Farm and Fireside.
PROFIT IN ONIONS.
The prico of onions is lower now than
it has been for several years, yet an onion
crop is profitable. With proper care two
crops can be raised in one year from the
same land. Tlie yield is betwoen so yen
and a half and eight tons to the acre on
each crop, which, at the present low price
of ;?1(J per ton, brings "SloO to 9160 per aero.
Tho raising of onions involves much hard
work and some expense, but theso figures
show that it pays well. Last year when
the crop brought $1 per hundred the
profits of onion raising must havo been
more than double those of the present
year. It is eveu asserted that some of the
Italian gardeners near -Stockton received
as high as $1,000 an acre for their onion
crops last year. If the price of this crop,
year by year, is not higher than at present
itis plain that onions wiil pay the pro
ducer better than any other product, ex
cept the choicest fruit. As tho Italians
pursue tho business a crop of fruit may
be raised in addition. It is a common
thing uoar Stockton to see crops of onions
raised between rows of apricot trees,
while the latter are said to bear the better
for the cultivation tliat is necessary to
bring about the best results with onions.
TWO OOOD "POINTS.
D. L. Yad of Iroquois County, 111.,
sends the following to tho Farm and Fire
side : "That the wounds made by taking
off large limbs from trees should not only
be painted or covered with grafting-wax,
but siiould also bo roofed in ; tiiat is, by
covering with tin, zinc, or even with a
shingle. This is a valuable thought for
those who occasionally have to remove
largo limbs from somo highly-prized
tree. By means of this covering tiie
wound is protected from the sun and
rain aud from fungus growths. Last
season I covered tho trunks of some
young apple-trees that had been severely
pruned with rosin-sized building-paper,
and in the fall found the wound under
the paper much better healed over than
wliere exposed, with only grafting-wax
for a covering." His second suggestion
is that in watering plants he finds it saves
one-half the water and prevents caking of
the soil if a hole is made by the side of tiie
plant aud the water poured into it
through a funnel.
If water must be provided for fowls,
give it in the morning, fresh, and be
careful to clean out the troughs iv
order to guard against disease. The roup
and cholera are always spread through the
dock by each member being compelled
to drink from the same source as the sick
It is not generally known that fruit
juice may bo boiled to a .jelly without
BOffar. Mash the fruit and strain, boil
down very carefully in porcelain or gran
ite ware. While it is thin cook rapidly,
but as it thickens let it simmer slower
and slower and finally finish isa stone
ware jar in a cool oven.
It is a very difficult matter to break an
egg-eating hen of the vice. Never allow
a"broken egg to be within reach of the
hens, or throw egg-shells to them, as
such will teach them the habit. Make
the nests in a dark place, rather high off
tlie iloor and open in front, so that the
hens will hare no place to stand for eat
ing the ejrgs.
The guineas came originally from a
warm climate, and the young ones thrive
better iv summer than in the colder
months. Hatch them under hens and
they will not only lose much of their
wild nature, but go up every evening into
the poultry-house. They are excellent
layers, make superior table Cowls and
perform gogd service as insect destroyers.
In giving salt to animals it should be
done in a manner to allow each animal
to partake of us it desires and prefers, in
stead of giving the salt in the food,
thereby compelling some animals to use
more salt than they wish. Bach animal
has its individual preference, and tho
proper mode of allowing salt is to place it
where the animals can have access to it at
all times, as each will use only tho
Strawberries have boen grown to an
enormous sizo this season. William
Flvins of Hammonton, __T. J., who ships
thousands of quarts to market, filled
some of the boxes with only thirty ber
ries to each box, some of the berries be
ing three inches tn diameter. If the
strawberry continues to improve in size
at the present rate of progress it will soon
bo as large as the apple. Already berries
have been produced that were larger than
Maple syrup, to be pure and just right
I to eat, says a Utica paper, should weigh
about 11J pounds to the gallon. When
poured out in a glass it should bo clear
and amber-hued, without containing dark
streaks. If, after it has stood in tlie dish
a few hours, a dark sediment is found in
the bottom, it is not pure maple syrup,
even though the man who made it should
cut down the tree from which he claimed
the sap was drawn and haul it to your
door in proof of his claim.
To show how much our English friends
are ahead ot us in some things, we may
cito a measure recently introduced ih
Parliament, providing ior the otticial
registration of farriers and shoeing
smiths throughout that country. It is
proposed that no one will be permitted to
shoo horses who has not obtained a diplo
ma irom the Farriers' Company, and this
can be had only after careful examination
of the man's practical and technical
kuowledgo of tho business.
Used Them for 15 Years.
Ira J. (irillin, Bookkeeper First Na
tional Hank, Sing Sing, N. V., writes:
"I have been using __k_u__oOC-C's Ponors
Pr.ASTiius for the last fifteen years in my
family, and can conscientiously recom
mend them as invaluablo when applied
where pain is to bo relioved. Two years
ago I contracted pneumonia from a heavy
colli, and during my convalescence, and
in the winter months since, have worn
ono on each lung across my back and
havo experienced great benefit therefrom,
and was relieved from a threatened re
turn In less than twenty-four hours."
A Wonderful Tower.
The tower ofa public building now in
course ol erection at Philadelphia is to bo
provided with a clock, which, for size
alone, will be one of the marvels of the
world. The center of the dial (twenty
five feet in diameter) will be .'->"> l feet
above the street. The bell is to weigh be
tween 20,000 and 25,000 pounds and will
be second in weight to lhe great Montreal
Cathedral bell, which weighs __*_>,_.)O
pounds, and it is calculated that its pea)
will be heard even to the most distant
part of the city, chimes similar to those
of Westminster will be used, riuging at
the quarter, balf, three-quarter* and the
hour. The minute hoi lis to be twelve
and ihe hour hand nine feet in length.
whiie the Roman figures on the dial will
measure two feet eight inches in length.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY
Good Agricultural Land for $10
to $20 per Acre.
The PaciQo Improvements Company has re-,
cently purchase^ twelve thousand acres of
land ih the heart of Tehama County, for the
purpose of promoting subdivision and settle
ment. This land embraces lands from first
class Sacramento Valley agricultural land, to
land of fair averago quality, and Is offered at
frbm Sio to 820 per acre, in subdivisions of
40, SO, 120,160 and 320 acres.
The terms upon which these lands are offered
are especially attractive. They will*be sold in
subdivisions, us above Indicated, by the pay
ment of Interest only for three years, at which
time the purchaser can begin the payment ol
principal by paying the flrst of five equal an
nual installments. Thus no part of the prin
cipal is to be paid for three years, and th* n
the purchaser is to have five years in which to
pay five equal annual installments, with in
terest at tho rate of 7 per cent, per annum,
"omking payments extending over a period of
ci^'ht years. Intending purchasers are as-
Eured that this is an opportunity to purchase
land of fair averace quality at $10 per acre,
and good agricultural land at *f!2O an acre,
with other grades of land at pricos to corre
spond between these figures.
The assertion is frequently made that good
lands, suitable for general farming, and es
pecially adapted for fruit-growing, cannot be
tiad in California for less than from $00 to
3100 an acre. An examination ofthe land
subject of this advertisement will prove to
liuuie-scokers that this is an opportunity for
the purchaso of good agricultural laud at 520
an acre, and for qualities grading down to lair
agricultural land at $10 an acre, on tonus of
payment which should make tbe disposition
of these lands to actual settlers a resultcasy of
The primary object of tha purchase of this
body of land wii.-; the breaking upofal..n_e
