RHODE ISLAND RED. FAVORED
Latest Addition to List of Popular
American ESreeds-Good Egg Pro
ducers and Grow Rapidly.
(By O. ERF.)
The Rhode Island Red breed consti
tutes the latest addition to the list of
popular American breeds of chickens.
This variety differs from the majority
of breeds in claiming for themselves
an origin biised solely on practical
They are partly of Asiatic blood,
"but in their selection, which extends
over a period of fifty years, attention
has been paid to rapid growth and egg
production, so that the breed today
more nearly resembles the Leghorns
Single Comb Rhode Island Red Cock
than does either the Plymouth Rock
or "Wyandotte. One fundamental dif
ference stili exists that shows the
Asiatic origin of the red chicken:
.?They are persistent sitters.
The Rhode Island Reds do not re
produce themselves with certainty as
to shade of color or style of comb, but
in practical points they may be con
sidered a distinct and well-established
GIVING CHICKENS SKIM MILK
More Eggs Produced Than From
Fowls Given Grain Ration Supple
mented With Meat Scraps.
According: to a general opinion of !
many who have given the matter ?
much attention, the value of skim i
milk to laying hens is from 70 cents
tc^.$2.15 per hundred pounds. The latter i
figure is evidently a little optimistic. |
According to experiments conducted J
by the Indiana experiment station,
51.73 was returned per hundred I
pounds of skim milk purchased at 30
cents. These experiments covered a ?
period of two years; one pen of laying
hens received corn, wheat, oats, bran
and shorts in the same proportion, in
addition to all the skim milk the fowls j
would drink, and another pen received
only the grain portion of the ration
that the former received. In averaging
the results obtained from feeding
these rations through two years of ex
periments it has been shown that the
average number of eggs laid per hen
receiving grain and skim milk was
133.5 eggs, whereas the hens that did
not receive skim milk with the grain
ration produced an average of only 36
eggs per hen. It was also shown that
during the winter months, December,
January and February, when eggs are
the highest in price, that the pen re
ceiving skim milk produced seven per
cent more eggs even than the pen re
ceiving a grain ration supplemented
with meat scraps, a feed generally
recognized as a great egg producer.
AGE FOR FATTENING CAPONS
-Give Them All They Will Stuff of
Cornmeal and Middlings-Fur
nish Supply of Grit.
Capons should reach full size be
fore fattening, and this should be
when they are from ten to twelve
months old. Fatten them from two to
three weeks before marketing-two if
they are shut up in dark coops. Feed
them all they will stuff of cornmeal
and middlings, wet up, but not too
?wet, with milk.
Cracked bits of glass are used as
an aid to digestion, but good grit is
safest where the ground stuff is used.
Grit of some kind they must have.
The farmer who does not keep over
a lot of male birds as capons will lose
a big spring profit on fowls, as turkeys
do not at any time, sell as high as
capons per pound.
Dampness Causes Leg Weakness.
Leg weakness in ducks is usually
, ca?fcd by dampness. If a duck is
? compelled to sleep in a damp house
, she is likely to be attacked with rheu
matism or cramps, for which there is
no sure remedy. Overfeeding will
also do it. Sometimes ducks break
down by persistent attention of heavy

GIVES VIEW OF COMMUNITY
Plan of Chicago City Club ls to De
velop the Neighborhood
In the small city or village nothing
In particular is done ordinarily to
stimulate the neighborhood spirit.
That force grows and develops natur
ally in a small community. People
come to know one another without ef
fort and easily retain their friendships
and acquaintanceships. Thus is pro
vided a substantial foundation for
community interest, which is another
name for neighborhood spirit.
In a city of large proportions the
community interest, the neighborhood
spirit, is less apparent and less co
hesive. There, is such an excess of
humanity all about that unnatural
barriers are anxiously thrown up
against the making of friends too
readily. Even neighbors living in the
same apartment building remain
strangers tor months on end.
Yet a city like Chicago, if it is to es
tablish the cohesive interest that fin-'
ally produces community interest, I
must develop somewhat in terms of j
the neighborhood spirit. Out of this j
comes the broader interest that em-1
braces the affairs of the whole city.
This situation gives special value to
the neighborhood center competition
that ls about to be featured at the
Chicago City club.* The purpose, as
announced, is "to bring before the:
public, in graphic form, the practical
possibilities of enhancing neighbor
hood life in our cities hy better, and
especially better grouped, buildings1
and grounds for neighborhood activi
. This object is a particularly worthy,
one. It lits In well with the public
properties exhibition at the City club. !
By this means an opportunity is given
Chicago citizens to obtain a clear Idea
of what they own as a community
then? schools, libraries, museums,
streets, bridges, parks, playgrounds, :
baths, police and fire stations,and so on. ?.
The well-informed citizen should
have definite knowledge of this "great j
community estate" in which he is a '
stockholder. The exhibition and the j
competition, with their Incidental
meetings and discussions, should do
much to establish a broader concept
of these essential matters.-Chicago.
As simple as a quaker bonnet is this
porch, yet it will add a touch of attrac
tiveness when a quick-growing vine
has canopied it.
Doing Away With Smoke.
Public opinion is setting strongly
against the contamination of the air
we breathe with coal smoke. A gen
eral use of low-temperature coke would
render the atmosphere of our cities as
free fram pollution as that of New.
York, where it is obligatory upon all
inhabitants to burn anthracite or some
other form of smokeless fuel. Through
wantonly wasting the valuable con
stituents of coal by burning it raw in
the domestic fireplace we suffer a dou
ble penalty. Not only do we pay di
rectly for the fuel that is discharged
unconsumed up the chimney, but we
pay indirectly a second time in the la
bor spent in removing it when it comes
back tc? us through the windows In the
form o" smuts and dust. We pay, too,
in deterioriated health and* obscured
The whole subject affords an inter
esting illustration of the solidarity of
scientific progress, and demonstrates
forcibly thn fact that one advance in
evitably brings another in its train.
The growth of twentieth century en
gineering science, which demands oil
In eve:r-grov ing volumes, is thus tend
ing to promote a sanitary reform which
ls long overdue.

growth of the public betterment move
ment in the South is furnished hy the

sand North Carolina communities got
together December 3 to Improve and
beautify their roads and church and

of any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber "9" with more speed and greater ease.
