STAPLE FOOD FOR POULTRY
Grain Will Be Used as Long as Fowls
Are Kept on Farms-Hen Must
Have Certain Varieties.
Grain is the staple food for poultry,
will be used for that purpose as long
as fowls are kept on farms; but bens
cannot give good results on grain
alone. It is beneficial to them, and
will be at all times relished, but the
demands of the hen are such as to
call for a variety. In the shells of
eggs, as well as their composition, are
several forms of mineral matter and
nitrogen, which can only be partially
obtained from grain.
Even though grains carry in com
position for a long time, hens will be
gin to refuse it, as they may be over
supplied from other sources. For this
reason they will accept a change of
food which is of itself evidence that
the best results for his hens can only
be obtained from a variety of food.
Corn and wheat may be used as food
with advantage, but must be given
as a portion of the ration only, and
not made exclusive articles of diet.
In grain the principle articles or ele
ments required to keep a hen in good
laying condition are found, and it is
for this reason that your hens may
continue to lay for some time if only
given grain, provided they. And the
other elements necessary while run
ning around the farm. But the trou
ble with this manner of feeding is
that it is too uncertain.
You are taking the chance of the
hen finding the other elements re
quired. No hen has ever laid an egg
unless she has taken into her system
elements from the vegetable, animal
and mineral kingdoms. Grain can re
present the vegetable kingdom, bugs
or insects, the animal, and grit or
oyster shell, the mineral. It ls abso
lutely necessary that every hen par
take of these elements before she can
produce a single egg.
HOPPER FOR LITTLE CHICKS

er stock. It is well, however, to keep
the dimensions of the feed opening
the same, this opening being specially
designed to prevent waste. The ends
are made of one-inch material, and
the rest of the hopper of half-inch
stuff. Any lumber that is at hand
may be used, and the construction is
so simple that anyone able to use a
hammer and saw can knock one to
gether in a very short time.
FATTEN CHICKENS FOR TABLE
Fowls Should Be P'aced in Portable
Pen Without Crowding-Feed
Sparingly for Three Days.
Prepare a portable pen by nailing
strips of lumber together to form a
frame, and then tacking on pieces
horizontally, so as to make an en
closure, leaving sufficient opening to
give light and ventilation. The pen,
writes a Virginia man in the Epito
mist, should be floored, and sufficient
outlet left for the droppings. A roof
should be made, and without leaks.
The whole should be made large
enough for ample accommodations,
depending upon the number of birds
to be kept In. Only fowls that are
peaceable should be kept together.
Do not overfeed at first; after two
or three days give all that they will
eat up clean, and be sure to give wa
ter after they have finished eating.
Give buttermilk occasionally, as most
fowls like it. Sprinkle sand, gravel
or charcoal In the pen occasionally
In from one to two weeks fowl;

WASHED UP BY THE WAVES

Reward Search Made Along ths
New York Beaches.
Along the beach at Manhattan and
Brighton, as well as at the Rockaways,
articles aggregating $100 in value aro
picked up every morning, relates the
New York Herald. And this amount
is considered by the regulars along
those Bhores to be a very conservative*
The articles found range from tho

statement is drawing it with a long
bow, There was one washed ashore
the last week in June.
It belonged to James J. Fitzsim
mons, cook on a Maine coasting
schooner. Fitzsimmons had removed
lt, so lt came out afterward in a Wa
ter street tavern, so that he might in
dulge in a hath. The schooner lurched.
So did the cork leg. Fitzsimmons
wailed an alarm, but the skipper, be
ing in a hurry to make a Maine port
at a particular hour, refused to luff
and pick the leg up. So it washed
ashore and its identity was revealed

Every now and then a wig is picked
up. The supposition is that the owner
was swimming at night and was over
confident that his top piece would re
main on his head when he dived. Lock

It is likely they are kept on the neck
by girls and women when they don
bathing costume and slip off when
their owners are frolicking in the
waves. Of course they are dropped
close to the shore line or they would
never be seen again. The constant
rolling shoreward of the waves grad
ually forces them into view.

Bird That Has Four Legs.
British Guiana boasts of one of the
few survivors of the many peculiar
birds now known mostly as fossils,
according to a writer in Our Dumb
Animals. This is the crested hoact
zin, and may be found only in very
dense and unexplored forests. The
hoactzin is noted chiefly for its pe
culiarity in possessing four well de
This would never be suspected In
the adult bird, inasmuch as a certain
modification begins while the bird'
is yet young, whereby the claw-like
legs or hands become shaped like
wings, and feathers are grown, so
that when this bird gets its full plum
age there is nothing left from which
one would suspect that these wings
were once legs.
The young birds, before this modi
fication does take place, leave the
nest and climb or scramble over the
limbs not unlike tree toads or young
monkeys. They feed on the young
arum leaves and are in this young
state the nearest approach to a quad
ruped of any bird.
Buggy Ride With Her.
Did you ever take a buggy ride in
the still o? the evening, down the
winding turns of a country pike, with
the fair one by your side? If BO, 'nutt
said. With a proper sense of propor
tion, the old-time buggy was made to
hold exactly one and a half. The re
sult was propinquity-also bliss.
Along the road-all too short-you
drove. Moo cows mooed in the dis
tance. Anxious mothers came to the
door and cried: "W-i-l-l-i-e!" But
you were lost to bovine plaints and
maternal solicitudes. Pungent odors
from the dog fennel mingled with the
faint perfume of the thistle's bloom.
The night dew lay on the fields, star
light drenched the earth and you dis
covered you had a soul. The air was
chill, and you fixed a shawl. Hands
touched and withdrew, followed by
most eloquent and ecstatic silence.
Then came the parting, as you "hand
ed" her out at the gate. A whispered
good-by, lest any other hear, and a
retreating vision of a rosebud fairer
than John D.'s pastor ever dreamed
A law has been passed by the shah
of Persia forbidding persons to weave
carpets according to European design.
Violation of the enactment is a crimi
nal offense, and the imperative atti
tude taken will have a greater tend
ency than ever to raise the Persian
carpet or rug in esteem. Often a Per
sian carpet will remain in the family
for generations, such careful treat
ment does it receive. When the owner
of a valuable carpet dies he very often
gives-instructions that it?-Fhsll he cut
np in pieces as heirlooms to his suc
cessors, and should a member of the
family not receive a portion he would
feel very greatly slighted. The designs
of Persian carpets have been handed
down from remote ages. Each family
keeps its own design, no two carpets
being alike for fear of the Evil Eye.
Unpardonably Behind. "
The American chorus girl, who is
now invading London with great suc

Mr. George Arliss, whose perform
ances in "Disraeli" are arousing so
much interest, illustrates this with a
story. "You are behind the times
over here," said a pink and pretty

that 'Twelfth Night' is playing in one
of the Strand theaters and we had
that two years ago on Broadway."
