ISSOURI CURE FOR GAPES
sesse Most Prevalent In Osmp
Weather, Caused by Worm in
? Chick's Windpipe.
IT MRS. JOHN J. MOORE. Missouri.) tb
A most common disease among p<
ilckens and one which causes great di
ss in the summer ls gapes. This tti
Isease, which ls most prevalent In bi
)ol. damp weather, ls caused by
orras, which get In the young chick's fe
Indpipe, causing lt to gasp for breath ol
nd if not dislodged, shutting off ita fl
-ii'Pb' of air. al
Sometimes the worm can be twisted T
at with ? horsehair, but this is a
evere remedy and other worms may
ake its place.
The following ls a preventative and
rill check the trouble at once:
Obtain the leaves of the common
,-oodworrn, sometimes called Jerusa
sm oak. a plant which grows wild In
nost places, having an erect shrub
>ery stem and small, yellowish tow?
ri. Its leaves when crushed have
tn unpleasant odor and are used la
he manufacture of vermifuge and to
irotect clothing and furniture from
noths and other Insects.
Mash the leaves and mix rn a small
juantlty with the chicken's teed or
mt In the drinking fountains.
Or, after the seeds have ripened,
:hey may be used instead of ths
leaves and a quantity gathered for

Automatic Device, Shown In Illustra?
tion, as Practical as More Ex?
An automatic teed er for poultry, sim?
ple In design, yet apparently as prac?
tical as similar devices of more com?
plicated and expensive design, ls
shown in the Illustration. The feeder,
which is hung from any convenient
support, comprises a grain container
provided with a discharge opening al
the bottom; a scoop pivoted under?
neath the opening, and a pendulum
like arrangement -with a ball at its
end. The chickens peck at this ball,
thus causing the pendulum to swine,
which tilts tbe scoop and allows a
certain amount of grain to fall to the
If it is possible, do not keep laying
hens or raise young chicks without
this very necessary article, even on
the farm. Place your coops for the
little ones near some shady place snd
there scatter coarse strawy manure
about three inches deep, then keep lt
moist at the bottom, if there ls no
rain, and watch the little fellows go
down after the angleworms that
flourish at the bottom, and you will
see your chicks flourish also. The
currant brush ls a good place.
Kerosene ls sure death to Hos lt
applied as a spray. Spray the walls,
roosts, corners and nestings and thc
oil will kill all vermin. Sprinkle the
bottom of the nests with lt and covet
with a heavy coating of straw
Kerosene is also very valuable ir
preventing and curing scale disease
In fowls. If lt is used freefy on tha
roosts once a week you will have n<
scaly legs. It promptly destroys thi
red louse that preys on the fowls a
night, sapping their very life bloo<

asites?How to Control.
(By GEORGE at, TURPIN.)
Insect parasites are the cause of a
eat deal of annoyance aud loss to
?ultrymen. Some essential measures
r their control are:
Have the poultry houses separated
om all other farm buildings
Have all of the Interior fixtures of
ie poultry houses, such as roost
>l*s. nest boxes. feed hoppers,
?epping boards, etc.. removable so
lat every part of the Interior can
9 readily cleaned and sprayed.
Keep a good dust bath to which the
iwls may have access at all times
* the day. Common road dust with
ne ashes ar.d powdered sulphur or
Ir-slacked lime added ls excellent.
he road dust should be gathered
A dropping board easily removed,
?leaned, sanded and replaced without
|oing into the hen house.
A. Dropping board proper.
luring dry 'weather for use during
Spray the coops and fixtures with
a good whitewash twice each year,
adding two pounds of salt and one
fourth gallon of crude carbolic acid
to every fifty gallons of the spraying
Setting hens should have access to
a good dust bath such as mentioned
ab<v,- if lice are found later on tho
chicks, rub lard In the feathers of
tbe head and throat, and lu bad
cabts. also under the wings.
TURKEYS THRIVE ON ALFALFA
Two Hundred Acres of Lsnd In Ne?
braska Utilized by Ranchman for
Breeding of Birds.
A Nebraska ranchman has more
than 200 acres of wild land, too dry
for cultivation without Irrigation, and
raakos a good living by raising tur?
A small creek nins through the
place and along Its sides grow some
About 200 acres of this farm has
bo, n sown to alfalfa, and In spite of
th? absence of much rain lt thrives
The old ranch owner raises from
800 to 1.200 turkeys every year, and
about the only care he gives them ls
to feed them alfalfa.
SOME FACTS ABOUT TURKEYS
One Sensible Thing ls to Keep Best
Birds for Breeding and Send
Others to Market.
Turkeys kept for breeding stock
should be the best that there is In the
flock. It ls difficult for some people
to keep their best turkeys and
send the others to market, but it's tho
only sensible way to do. The habit of
selling the best is not characteristic
of only the least Intelligent people; lt
is common with the people who have
raised turkeys all their lives, and
people who would not think of
breeding other stock of the farm
in such a careless way. Those
people have attained the success
and profits in turkey raising that are
enjoyed by the man who handles them
as fairly as he docs his cows and
The best care in the world can do
little with poorly bred poults and
turkey chicks. You cannot expect
large turkeys from small breeders.
Site ls not the only thing to be con?
sidered in selecting the stock; thrift
and firmness have as much to do with
ths choice as tbe size; big, well-built
bodies and legs to be desired
And on top of all, do not ruin tht
ivlgor of your strain by too earl*,
Fresh Air ls Needed.
Fowls are obliged to throw off mud
of the waste of the body through thi
lungs. They do not sweat in thi
sense that do other animals, but In
stead breathe several times faste
than sweating animals -when heatea!
To keep in god health a hen require
nearly seven times the amount c
fresh air In proportion to its size a
does a horse.
