PRODUCING EGGS \U WINTER
Keep Before Hens Constant Supply of
High Protein Meat Scrap, Grit
and Fresh Water.
Keep before the hens that you are
using for winter egg production, a con
stant supply of Irish protein meat |
scrap, complete grit, "crushed oyster j
shell, and supply fresh, clean water
abundantly and regularly, and see to j
lt that the water does not become j
frozen in cold weather, as there has j
been no invention forthcoming from
our geniuses in this line of industry
which will provide the chicken with
Animal food is extremely essential
In securing heavy winter egg yield,
and as a rule, this can best be sup
plied in the form of meat scrap, as it
lt the most economical and convenient
. Fowls greatly prefer green-cut bone,
and if it is practical, we should re
spect our feathered friends' tastes as
near as possible.
BREED FROM VIGOROUS HENS
Ideal Mating for Breeding Purposes ta
Yearling Cocks With Well-Devel.
oped Yearling Females.
(By J. E. DOUGHERTY, University of
California, College of Agriculture.)
The production of a large egg con- i
taining a strong embryo and plenty of
nourishment requires that a hen pos
sess well-matured productive organs.
It is necessary that the embryo not
only have plenty of space within the i

shell in which to grow but also be sup
plied with an abundance of food mate- :
rials with which to make that growth.
A pullet does not ordinarily possess
reproductive organs sufficiently well j
developed to produce such an egg. j
Therefore a pullet does not produce ,
as good hatching eggs and is not as
desirable for breeding purposes as is !
the yearling hen. The pullet must
necessarily utilize some of her ener
gies in further growth and develop-1
mont. After attaining her full size, :
she still has to fill out and mature, as j
well as strength an her laying organs
Among the Mediterranean class of
fowls, such as the Leghorn and Minor- '
ca, the male3 seem to develop sexually j
more rapidly than the females. Well
developed Mediterranean cockerels are
therefore very often used ai; breeders
when mated with yearling hens. The
ideal mating, however, for breeding
purposes, is that of vigorous yearling .

m THE GIL
By FOP.EES DWIGHT.
Edward Frisby, sadly perturbed,
mounted the steps of the Stanwoous'
house and rang the bell. Of the maid,
who opened the door for hi:n. he asked
so sharply if Miss Stanwood were in
that the girl involuntarily stepped
away from him. JYesc-ntly Helen was
standing there before him.
"Why at this unseemly hour of the
day, Ned?" she was asking.
"I came to set my mind at rest,"
said he. "1 want you to tell me it
isn't true-that you're going to ride
at the head of the procession as Joan
of Arc tomorrow?"
She tried to smile nonchalantly,
blushed a little, and turned away her
"Yes, it's true," said she. "I wasn't
originally cast for that role, you un
derstand. It was Alice Marr. But
she's ill. So they've asked me and
"Good heavens! Of course you
can't!" said he.
She made a wry little face. Also
her right hand went aut in a little im
"Neddy, don't be horrid," she urged.
"I'm not," said he. "Why, goodness
gracious, child, it would be- You'd
have to be in armor, of course?" he
broke off suddenly.
"Of course," she admitted with the
faintest of added color.
"Well, don't," said he.
"For what specific reason?" she de
"Because I ask lt." j
"That isn't enough."
"Isn't it?" said he. "Then let me
say, because, if you do persist-if you
don't think any more for me than that.,
I don't think I'd better come here any
She looked at hint wide-eyed for a 1
moment Then quietly she slipped off j
the ring on the third finger of her left j
hand and passed it to him.
"AB you like," said she. "I shall be
Jeanne d'Arc tomorrow."
Before he could remonstrate she
was gone. She stepped past him and i
he heard her going very firmly up the |
stairs. He started to call after her, j
but instead be squared his shoulders j
and went out. and he did not close the j
front door quite as softly as was his |
He went to the club that night and
to forget his troubles he plunged into
a game of bridge with Norton and i
Babcock and old Colonel Haskins. He .
played later than he had meant to;
also he played very badly. In conse
quence he overslept next morning,
ar?d he had an important appointment
with a client at his office at 9:30
o clock. It was after ten o'clock when
he rushed downtown.
Martial muEic gave him pause, j
Hand-clappings and cheers also greet
ed his ears. Of course, the parade, j
H6 started on, but at that moment Ihe
head of the parade came abreast him. j
Behind the band was a huge banner j
with the legend:
"VOTES FOR WOMEN."
And just back of that was a wonder- '.
ful vision, a girl in flashing armor, trim j
and lithe and straight on a snow- j
white horse. The shimmering helmet j
she carried in her hands, leaving her I

He pushed through the crowd, in
another moment he had joined those 1
shame-faced, marching men at the end
of the procession. Then he marched i
grimly, unmindful apparently that he j
was being invited to go nome and !
wash the dishes and that he was being !
told in many falsetto voices how per
fectly sweet he looked.
There was a reviewing stand in1

As the tail cf the procession came
along she caught sight of the standard
bearer. She gasped in surprise. She
said, "Edward!" very softly, but quite
distinctly. Then, as the banner was
dipped to her in salute, she bent her
head and unloDssd upon him the most
dazzling smile imaginable.
She had just reacted home and run
inside, and old William, their gardener,
was holding the horse, when Frisby
burst in. In his excitement he had
even forgotten to ring. She started
with an embarrassed little laugh to
run upstairs (she was still in the ar
mer), but he caught her in his arms.
