j FEED-HOPPER FOR CHICKENS
(Receptacles Keep Food Clean and Yet
Readily Accessible to the Fowls
at All Times.
(By W. R. CONOVER. New Jersey.)
To keep the food clean and yet
Ti ave it readily accessible to the fowls
without constantly taxing oneself to
maintain tbeee conditions is often dif
The receptacles themselves must be
kept clean. Vessels used for feeding
wet washes should be of metal or
porcelain, so that a frequent scalding
.may render them sanitary-. Even the
Hopper No. 1.
wooden troughs for dry feeding should
have an occasional scalding and sun
Herewith are given some ideas for
hoppers which are adaptable for small
or large flocks as dry feed receptacles
or for wet feed if the trough part is
of metal. Any handy man can make
them of wood. If of metal, the help
of a tinsmith may be needed.
Hopper No. 1 is a useful style in a
: poultry house having an alley-way
with a partition between it and the
poultry compartments. It is arranged
?so that the feeding trough for the
?fowls is replenished from the chute
like trough opening into lt from the
lalley-side of the partition. The feed
iing portion is six inches wide and
.three inches deep, with a cover that
Hopper No. 2.
?may be raised by means of cord
irunning through, the partition. The
.chuce is nine inches high, and six
linches wide at the top, with a hinged
'cover. The space through which the
ifeed passes from the chute to the
trough is three inches high.
When the feed is poured into the
whute it fills the trough gradually,
<but without enough pressure to over
flow it. Aa the birds eat the feed
in the chute gradually settles into the
trough. The bottom of the trough
is two inches above the floor. The
Hopper No. 3.
trough portion rests upon cleats and
Hopper No. 2 ls convenient for the
email henhouse. It ls a simple box
-with slanting strips four Inches apart
fastened to a frame which rests over
lt. It is supported on brackets. It
is 21/2 inches high and 12 inches in
Hopper No. 3 has a cover which
lifts and may be hooked back during
feeding time. The trough is 24 biches
long, 3 inches high and 8 Inches wide
-five inches of this width being ex
posed by the lifted cover. This hop
per may be made of galvanized metal
find used for feeding wet mashes.
The biggest hen ls not the business
Charring corn is one way of provid
ing charcoal for fowls.
. . .
Don't expect to win every prize that
you compete for this fall.
? . *
Some breeds are easier plucked than
others. This makes a difference.
. * *
The hen needs a balanced ration,
the same as the cow or the man.
. . .
Broken charcoal is a fine conditioner
ior birds of all ages at all times of
. . .
It is the abuse and not the use of
corn that condemns lt a? a poultry
. * .
It is very poor economy to inbreed
to save the expenso of buying new
. . .
Airr>slaked lime sprinkled on the
floor and on the dropping boards will
help to keep the, place healthy and
the air pure.

AI I I I memories W1 n
^?11 drove a satisfa
tory Dargain, filching a shirt withoi
notice being taken thereof. Carryin
his empty basket down the street h
figured the gain and was contant, an
that eame instant he caught the fir:
glimpse of his destiny.
She was standing behind the plat
glass of a department store. A rob
of azure gauze, price marked $8.9<
swathed her slender form and a pol
hat of violets sat well forward abov
her golden "Marcel." Her cheek
mantled with the blush of maidenhoo
were luscious as ripe pomegranate
and her round eyes, which in colo
matched the $8.95, grew lashes as lon
as a painter's brush.
Wing saw and was conquered. Trail
lng his basket he approached the wir
dow, admiration expanding his fea
tures into a grin. Fixed as the page
das of Nankin he stood before thi
daughter of the gods and drank his fil
of her loveliness.
Late that evening he returned to hi:
laundry. Next afternoon he feigne<
sickness and hurried off to Stat*
street, where his idol awaited him.
A week of such devotion and Win)
summed ,up his cash on hand-eight
nine, ten dollars and 40 cents. H<
dressed himself in Sunday clothes
rolled his pigtail into a tight knot anc
set out for the department store
where she was enslaved.
"Hu - muchee you want your Meli
can gal?" he asked the floorwalker
mest politely. Strange to say it tool
some minutes to convince the' ad
dressed that an insult was not im
plied. Questions followed at length
Did Wing wish the figure alone, or lu
costume, as exhibited. To be sure he
wished her clothes and all. Alas, when
the price was named, including dress,
hat and girl, in toto, Wing's counte
nance fell. He shook his head and de
parted with the visage of a stoic.
Behind the ironing board came more
calculations and Wing began to work
Months passed. The adored one
changed her diaphanous voile for a
smart green tailor-made and the
violet polo for a velvet toque. Later
in the season she wore a fur cape
around her shapely shoulders.
The new year had been ushered in
before Wing again appeared In the
role of suitor. The savings of six
months were with him. A. new inven
tory was made, the price hati increased
with the season. Wing deliberated.
He was "velly solly," but the "Melican
gal" would have to do without her lux
The money being paid, the new,
master undaunted by jeers of the pop
ulace and occasional apple cores,
shouldered his blonde beauty and bore
Once within the laundry precincts,
Wing placed the beauty on a wash tub
and arranged her gown in correct
folds. It took bim a full half hour be
fore he was satisfied with the result
Then he lighted some josB sticks and
placed them so that she should be en
veloped in the perfumed smoke. He
next offered her a plate of rice and
Booy, but the tilted nose ref used to
sniff its appetizing aroma.
Alas, that the fates should be so
cruel to lovers. A sharp ring at the
telephone Interrupted this amorous
soliloquy. To Wing's reluctant re
sponse an irate customer demanded
his washing and threatened the law.
Wing shouldered a heavy basket and
stole out into the night.
An hour passed. The Melican gal
still crowns the wash tub with stat
uesque grace. Then a visiting rat
spreads the tale that the beauty is be
coming animate. True it certainly is
that the smiling rosy mouth has begun
to pout. An ugly wrinkle, too, has
appeared above the smooth brow and
as the moments pass the tapering fin
gers stretch and grow weirdly long.
"Piing,"" the rats scamper as one
azure orb snashes on the floor. Tears
cf wax run down the once tilted nose
and rain the tailor-made. A second
eye follows. The bando melt away and
disclose their props of wood. Brow,
cheeks and nose have become one
shapeless mass-then the laundry door
opens and In slips Wing.
Emotion ls not according to the eade
of Confucius, so our celestial lover
neither wept nor tore his hair. He
looked-and closed the damper of the
stove. Then again, this time without
the lingering glance, he locked the
laundry door behind hits and stole out
tato th? night.
