SCRAPS GOOD FOR CHICKENS
Parings Left From Potatoes, Pump
kins, Squash, Apples, Etc., Make
Save all the parings, potato, pump
kin, squash, apple, etc., and when
you are cooking your noonday meal
cook these for the chickens. When it
has cooled, stir in enough wheat bran
to make a stiff mash. This makes an
excellent but economical dinner. Give
them an occasional mess of parings
chopped fine without cooking. Tur
nips and beets are much relished by
the fowls when oaten green.
If you have cabbage, take a small
sized head, fasten it to a wire and
hang low enough that the fowls can j
reach it easily. You will be surprised 1
to see how quickly they will clean up j
a cabbage in this way.
Don't feed your fowls milk in the j
watering trough. Have a separate j
trough for each. Be sure to feed a
panful of milk each day.
Don't forget to water fowls when
the weather gets cold. Milk doesn't
quench their thirst, as I have often
seen them turn from a pan of milk
to the watering trough and drink an

MOST PROLIFIC EGG LAYERS
What Chinese Breed of Geese Lack in
Size They Make Up In Egg Pro
duction-Are Quite Hardy.
Apparently what the Chinese geese
lack in size has prevented them from
becoming favorites with those who
raise large numbers annually, but
with those who keep a limited number
White Chinese Geese.
they are found to be very practical.
What they lack in size they gain in
egg production, being the most pro
lific of all breeds of geese, averaging
from 50 to 60 eggs a year. In size,
aptitude to fatten, and ease of man
agement they appear in no respect in
ferior to other geese, while the qual
ity of flesh is decidedly superior.
They are exceedingly graceful in ap
pearance, quite hardy, and the young
mature early. There are two varieties
of Chinese geese-the Brown and the
White. They have medium-sized
heads, with large knob at base of a
medium-lei.gth bill, and long, graceful
ly arched neck. The backs are me
dium in length, and the breast is
round and full; body of medium size,
round and plump; wings large and
strong; thigh bones short and stout,
and shanks of medium length.
EXERCISE FOR LAYING HENS
Erroneous Impression Prevails Among
Certain Poultrymen That Fowls
Should Ee Kept Moving.
The matter oi exorcise for laying
hens is one of great importance to the
breeder, and one which means much
to the man who is producing eggs for
the market only. There is a common
impression prevailing among certain
unenlightened poultrymen that fowls
should be koot on the move vV r!ay
long, but this is extremely erroneous,
especially in the case of winter egg
production, and it has been proved
most conclusively that a fowl will lay
more eggs at a lower cost when not
required to take aa excessive amount
Chickens to Fatten.
Chickens of from three and one-half
to four and one-half pounds are the
most profitable to put in the fattening
crates. Two parts oats, one part buck
wheat and one part corn, all finely
ground, mixed with sufficient butter
milk to make a batter, makes an ex
cellent ration for crate feeding. With
suitable birds an increase of one
pound may be expect ed from three to
five pounds of meal fed.

SPECIFIC ACTION OF GERMS
Results of Some Interesting Experi
ments That Were Made by Fa
mous New York Physician.
In a lecture before the New York
Acadensy of Medicine, Doctor Rose
now gave an interesting and convinc
ing account of his experiments with
germs taken from diseased organs in
various parts of the body. He showed
that bacteria taken from ulcers of
the stomach, appendices, infected gall
bladders and rheumatic joints, when
injected into animals in the majority
of instances caused infection and in
flammation in (the localities corre
sponding to those from which they
had been taken. For example: Out
of 59 animals injected with the germs
taken from cases of appendicitis, 41
developed appendicitis. Out of 79 anl- j
mais injected with the germs from
ulcer of the stomach, 50 developed |
ulcer of the stomach, 47 showed hem- j
orrhage. Out of 27 animals injected
with germs from inflamed gallbladders i
22 developed gallbladder affection. Out i
of 71 animals injected with germs de- j
rived from cases of rheumatism, 47 j
developed Joint affections, 33 devel- j
oped inflammation of the lining of the
heart, a frequent complication of rheu- ,
matism, 33 developed myocarditis, In
flammation of the heart muscle, and
19 developed pericarditis, inflamma- .
tion of the membrane surrounding the
heart, 28 kidney affections, 19 peri

Daily Housework Outline.
An outline of a system of house
work was the request made not long
ago by a bride-to-be, who wished some
directions published for her guidance
in housekeeping. The variation in
the needs of diff?rent households
makes a universal rule impracticable,
as was suggested to the inquirer at
the time; but she may find some help
in a daily outline given by Miss Par
loa. a noted authority on household
matters. Miss Parlca says: "Make
the fires, air the dining room and hall.
Prepare the breakfast and set the
table. Air the bedrooms while the
family is at breakfast. Remove the
breakfast dishes; put away the food.
Sort the dishes and put to soak all
dishes and utensils that have had
food in them which is liable to stick.
Put dining room and sitting room in
order, airing them well. Wash dishes,
put kitchen and pantries in order.
Prepare dishes that require slow
cooking and put them to cook. Make
beds and put sleeping rooms and bath
room in order. Trim lamps. Dust
halls and stairs; sweep piazzas."

Before paint cr calcimine is applied
to walls every crevice should be lilied

water; add the dissolved glue and stir
together, adding warm water until j

of water the glue may be omitted.
