THE POULTRY YARD.
EXPERIENCE WITH FOWLS.
At dlitirent times we have tried some of
the d(ifferent breeds offowls, and have flinally
settled upoIln the Light Brahn:as as being pre
emilently the fowl for protit.
SILVER SPIANGLED IIAMIURGS.-IVC first
tried this breed, and like them. They are
the hantlsomest breed with which we are
acquainted, and, to those with whom profit
is a secondary consideration, we eatn wartly
recomtend themii. With us they proved
to le great layers of very small eggs ; three
weighing about as much as two Bra:lhni
eggs. There icutketts were very hard to
raise: not more h one-hilf of of all hatchetd
would live to maturity. Still, with all their
faults, we thought Iheri much superior to
the so-called "dung-hill fowls," which we
had previously kept
BLACK SrANISII.-WVe found these fowls to
be good layers in the spring months, but
poor winter layers. Their eggs, though not;
as large as the Braihnms, are of good size.
One great fault of the Spanish is, that their
combs are so large, that unless warldy
housed they will get frost-bitten ; antd after
their combs are once frozen they never look
handsome again. 'They are very suseepl)tible
to disease; and withal are not as desirable
as the II:lauurgs. So we discartded them.
BtvF CocIuxs.-We purchased a trio of
Buff Cochius of a friend, who highly recomn
iiended them, but we did not like them.
They a;re not as good layers as the liamt
burgs, though their eggso are larger. They
can ily much higher th:,u the Bralunas can,
and not is docile ; at least, such has been our
IIGIIT BRAIMIAS.-At first we did not
think we should like them, as a busy-body
had tolt us that they were inveterate setters.
•"Why," said he, "they will sit on a cart
wheel if they can find nothing else." This,
however, is not the case; for ifthey are taken
in hand immnediately when they first become
broody, they can be broken up in from two
to four ((lays. The Bralmnas are great winter
layers ; anid winter laying is what pays iln
poul' try-keeping. Their eggs are large; I
weighed some of their eggs of the average
size, a f.ew days since, and found that they
weighed at the rate of seven eggs to the
pound, lacking one ounce. The chickens are
temarkably hardy; searcely ever loose one.
Our Brahmnas are so tame that we can pick
them up in the yard, or take the eggs from
utnder theimt while they are on the inest. We
keep the Bralhmas confined with a four-foot
WHITE LEGIHORN.-Sinc we e have kept
Bralunas we have tried the Leghorns. They
are first-rate Ivyers, ald their eggs are of
good size. We have not kept them long
cnough, or in sufficient numbers, to pass
correct judgment upon them; but, from
present appearances, we think they may
prove a rival to the Bralhnas as far as egg
production is concerned.
From the above facts, we have come to
the conclusion that when both eggs and
chickens are wanted, the Brahmlas will give
better satisfaction than any other of the
above-mentioned breeds of fowls. We do
not feed our chickens hard-boiled eggs for
the first few days, as some recommended;
that would hardly pay in this vicinity, with
eggs at twenty-five cents per dozen in the
spring months and fifty cents per dozen in
the winter. We fed the chickens Indian
meal, wheat screening, cracked corn, and
small potatoes boiled and mashed. The
chickens thrive upon such food; for this sea
son we have raised 125 Light Brahmas and
twenty-five Leghorns ; also about twenty-five
half Brahma and half Leghorn chtckens,and
have only lost two by disease.-Country Gen
Ihow To HAVE WINTER EGGS, AND KERP
THE POULTRY uP.-A pullet hatched early
in the spring begins to lay at the approach
of winter, and pullets hatched late in the
summer begin to lay in the ensuing spring,
and it is by saving a certain proportion of
pullets from the early and late broods, that
you make sure of winter eggs, a fIew early
hatched chickens for catching thie higlest
nmarkets, and a numerous flock of chickens
in the warm months when rearing is less
precarious. The lien continues in her prime
for two, and at most, three years-therefore
save every year pullets equal to a third of
your brood stock, selling off at a trilling
price the sa|me number of aged hens, or ofIer
ing them upl in a stewed dish or well baked
pie. However, I have no scruples about
keeping a heavy, syummnctrically made, splen
didly feathered "partlet," fir four years, for
the sake of her stock. Many farmers grum
ble about their poultry, from not paying at
tention to such simple matters as their not
looking over their brood stock once a year,
drafting all the old dames (known by the
developed scales on their legs), and reserving
from the market ba:sk. . ce most promising
young pullets raised during the sea:son.-E:m
W1ASHING .OOLEN BLANKEITS.-FOr two
or three blankets take one pint of soft soup,
two tablespoo(nsful of powdlered horux and
(lissolve ill boiling water. Add the solution
to altub half 1illed with cold water and large
enough to contain the blankets; let them
stand entirely coverd by tl;e solution from
twelve to twenty-four hours, then squeeze
and rub thoroughly, but o nt (10 \ot wring them;
puiit in a basket over a tub land let them
drain. Rinse in cold water and drain twice,
thlen rinse in llue water, drain and hang up
to dry. Be puare to use cold water a:ld rnot
wring during the p)roces, tlen the 1:ankets
will not shrink up, but will dry white and
How To CLEAN LAMP C(I.1N1;EYs.-Most
people in clearinig lamp chimneys. use either
a brush made of bristles twisted into a wire,
or a rangon the point of scissors. Bot of
thes e are bad ; without great ('·re, thle wire,
or scissors will scratch the glass as a di'umond
doesh,whliclh, uder the csxpanive power of
heat soon breaks, as all scratched glass will.
If you want a neat, little thing tl;at costs
nothing, and will save half your glass, tie a
piece of soft, sponge the size of your chim
ney to a pine stick.
ToMATro V INEGA(;A-Tnke a bushel of ripe
tomatoes, wash them in open tub, and add
one quart of molasses that weighs eleven
potnds to the gallon, and thoroughly mix
the whole together, in which condition let
the tub stand several days, not neglecting to
frequently stir the mixture in it. When a
decided vinegar odor is given off; tle juice
should be strained from the ponmace and put
into casks and let stand until the process is
completed. Vinegar thus made is equal to
the best, and to succeed in its manulhicture
onl:y requires iaithlfully following out these
IIoP YEAST.--Boil half pint of hops in two
quarts of water till the strength is extracted.
Rub halfa pint of flour smooth with cold
water, strain the tea and mix it in ; let it
cook slowly like mush from five to ten min
utes. Let it cool, then add a gill of yeast
and two nicely mashed boiled potatoes, and
put it in a stone jug or bottle to rise. A tin
coffee pot should be kept to boil hops in, as
the bitter taste is hard to remove from a
CURE FOR RING BONE.--MiX well 11
drams of biniodione of mercury with one
ounce of lard. Rub this ointment well into
the skin daily over the lumps, first shaving
off the hair. Two hours after each applica
tion paint the blisters (with a soft brush) with
tincture of arnica 1 ounce, to water 12 ounces.
Do this daily for a week, then omit a week,
and then repeat. This will generally cure
recent cases, so that they will show no lame
ness, but the lumps will remain. The colt
should be kept tied so that he cannot bite the
blisters. No remedy will remove the lumps.
A horse has been captured in McLean Co,
Ky., which, upon examination, was found
to be entirely destitute of hair. In color he
was a glossy black. The skin is smooth and
soft as velvet, and so clean that a lady can
rub him without soiling the most delicate
pair of' kids.
