WHITE LEGHORNS FOR EGGS
pGood Strain of Breed With Good
Care and Fed Ration Given Here
with Will Prove Profitable.
: (By J. H. ELSTON, Caldwell, Idaho.)
The man or woman who has de
cided to go into the poultry business
will make no mistake in selecting the
i Single Comb White Leghorn, es
pecially if he wiaroa to follow the
'branch devoted to egg farming, with
the sale of breeding stock and eggs
There is a decided difference in
"White Leghorns. Those that axe
line-bred for exhibition purposes only,
are seldom the large, hardy, persist
ent layers as those selected and bred
for egg production, but standard
qualifications need not and should not
be neglected even if our aim is a
greater production of eggs.
In securing eggs when prices are
high, the housing and feeding plays
.an important part. We should have
.good warm houses with plenty of
fresh air, with plenty of room for
.exercise, as a busy hen is the one that
fills the egg basket. They are inex
pensive, three sides and roof covered

In winter I feed grain morning and
night scattered in a heavy straw lit
ter on the floor. The exercise of
scratching for the grain in early
morning warms the birds and they
are hungry and in good shape for a
dinner of the warm mash. The mash
has for a base alfalfa, chopped fine
ar * steamed ; with this is mixed
wneat bran, ground oats, wheat and
corn to which is added meat meal,
whenever possible milk is also added.
About twice a week boiled potatoes
are used in place of the alfalfa.
If one has a good strain of White
I leghorns with proper care and fed
the above ration they should have a
good supply of winter eggs.
?ULUNG MAKES FINE FOWLS
'Rants and Deformed Birds Should Be
Disposed of Immediately to Make
Room for Good Ones.
The first great secret in the pro
duction of fine poultry is severe cul
ling. As soon as you can distinguish
between the good and the bad, com
mence the culling process. The runts
and the deformed, the off-colored and
the disqualified, should be at once dis
posed of, so that the room and feed
may not be appropriated by them to
the detriment of the good ones.
Select fowls of good size, proper
.color and correct formation. If the
backs, keels, legs or toes of any are
crooked or deformed, thrown them out
for the table on the market. If there
are any scrubs, small or feeble ones,
lt is best to end their existence.
When you cull, cull closely, and re
tain only such specimens as are rea
sonably sure to grow right. It is only
by such systems of severe culling
that one can ever hope to breed rea
sonably uniform specimens of fancy
Spread of Contagion.
Drinking water in poultry houses
is one cause of the rapid spread of
contagious diseases, such as roup. An
affected hen when she places her beak
In the water to get a drink, contami
nates all the water. Then, when
healthy hens drink from this water
supply they become exposed to what
ever disease the sick hen has. Thus,
when one fowl contracts a contagi
ous disease it generally is but a com
paratively short time until there is a
general outbreak of the affection, un
less precautions are taken.
Prevention Is Cheapest.
Eradicating a contagious dlseaee
from a poultry flock is a tedious and
costly process. The best way is to
prevent the outbreak in the first
place by keeping the buildings clean
-and sanitary. When a fowl gets sick,
if it is not killed ft should be Isolated
and the remainder of the flock closely
watched for tlgsm ci further troubla.

Still the wonder grows that a greater
number of farmers do not raise
more horses and mules. Several
days ago Mr. VV. E. Winn sold a
home-raised colt to his brother, Mr.
J. E. Winn, for $200. Those who
saw the fine young mare say she
was a erreat bargain at that price.
Tho Winn brothers can afford to
keep brood mares, because they al
ways.grow an abundance of corn at
home to sr pplv the farm.

THE TIME TO MAKE MONEY ON YOUR CROP IS WHILE YOU ARE GROWING IT. MAKE A
GOOD START BY GETTING S. S. FERTILIZERS. YOUR PLANT FOOD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN
ANY OTHER FACTOR IN YOUR CROP PRODUCTION. UNLESS YOU GET A MIXTURE THAT FEEDS
THE GROWING PLANTS, GRADUALLY, NEITHER OVERFEEDS THEM NOR STARVES THEM, YOU
ARE A LOSER, NO MATTER WHAT THE CROP SELLS FOR.
WE DO NOT USE NITRATE OF SODA
In our goods for cotton and corn. Other sources of ammonia (nitrogen) are
better. Nitrate of soda is exhausted in the soil too quickly. It should be used
only as a top dresser and for truck.
FISH, BLOOD AND OTHER ANIMAL AMMONIATES
Are the best sources of ammonia. They feed tho crop moro gradually and are, there
fore, the best plant food. Cotton seed m^al mixtures made when requested. If your

This is not a theory, but a fact proven by the experience of many.
The popularity of Royster's, the original and genuine fish-scrap
fertilizer has caused a host of brands to appear with fish in the

be sure to buy the brand that made fi^h-scrap famous; F. S. R.
