Cold Weather Makes Good
Birds, Warm Weather Bad
Ones, and Result Rules the
On lonely farm down In Virginia a
woman In feeding a nock o turkeys nnd
looking up at the October sky for weather
signs; her eyes scorch the clouds anx
iously as she wonders -what weather the
taming few weeks trill bring. And In
Texas, Delaware, Naif Jersey, Pennsyl
vania, everywhere turkeys are raised,
farmers are asking the earner question.
For the weather between now and
ThanksgiviRS will be the Hreat faotor In
determining thi quality and the price ot
the turkeys which will appear In thn
rhfladelphla markets before long. If
the weather remains open, so the bird'
may roam about tn search of food, they
will be scrawny, muscular fowls without
much fat. On the. other hand, It several
weeks of blustering weather and cold
winds swwp over the farms and the
turkeys do not range far, they will be
come fat and plump-marketable tur
keys. T'nllke other fowls, turkeys enn
not be penned up In good weather and
fattened successfully. Bad wither makes
good turkeys; good weather makes bad
turkeys. If weather Is fair and the
birds do not show good condition, many
turkey raisers will not kill their birds,
but will save thorn for the Christmas
market. If this occurs turkeys may be
scarce thl year and the price will be
correspondingly higher. Last year thou
sands of turkeys spoiled became they
were not disposed of at Thanksgiving
and their condition when killed did not
allow them to hold op under colrt wa.
until the Christmas demand. Tho farm
era may profit by this lesson.
HIGH PRICES PROPHESIED.
Judging from the prilling high price
of other poultry and meat' commission
men and poultry dealer expect turkeys
to be mora expensive 'man usual this
Thanksgiving. One man prophesied that
the wholesale price will be as high as
11 cents a pound, dreswd, and the re
tall price 31 cents. The average retail
price predicted was about O cents. Tho
European war, bugaboo for prices of all
commodities, is not espect-d to play an
important part In fixing the number of
turkeys that will be sold this year, be
cause the public insists on having turkey
at Thanksgiving no matter how scarce
money mav be.
There are practically no turkeys In
Philadelphia storage houses now Tber
are slaughtered in the fall and winter,
and. because of the law compellng the
cold storage product to be sold within
10 months, the storage rooms are well
rleared of the birds by the end of sum
mer, although hotels oo.u-e a small de
mand for them the vear around
This -eason's van sard of turkeys
that will supply Philadelphia tables is
expected within tin nest two weeks.
The We3t probably will furnish tho first
birds, which will be killed and put in the
refrigerator card befora the Eastern
turkevs are slaughtered. A week before
Thanksgiving the buds will be arriv ng
from the nearer points. Delaware, t lie
Pennsylvania counties, Now .ler.v. -Virginia,
and the turke niaiket will open
with a rush The birds which are not
disposed of at Thanksgiving will be put
In cold storage foi r'hristmaa. the goal
