BEAUTY AND EGGS COMBINED
Puzzling Question as to Whether
These Desirable Qualities Are
Found In Same Her;.
(By T. E. QUISEN'BERRY, Kansas
City. President of American School of
. Can utility and beauty be combined
in the same fowl, or, in other words,
is it possible to combine egg produc
tion and standard requirements? If
not, we had better change the stand
ard where necessary. It is said that
the life of the average fancier is three
years. If this be true, it is our duty
to get busy and help him develop ways
and means by which he will be enabled
to make more dollars and cents and
thus stay longer in the business which
he has chosen and in which we are all
pleased to have him engage. .
We hear many arguing for and
against the question of combining
"utility and beauty." Instead of say

lng it cannot be done, had we not bet
ter be trying to harmonize and com
bine these two desirable qualities?
A hen that never laid an egg would
naturally be expected to score some
higher than a hen of the same variety
that laid a great many eggs, but we
would rather have a hen that scored
90 and laid 200 eggs than to have one
scoring 94 that laid only 90 eggs. The
nian is either prejudiced or narrow
minded who would attempt to discour
age the breeders from making an at
tempt to combine these two qualities
in all varieties of poultry. The stand
ard of perfection calls for 100 points
for each variety. No one ever saw a
bird or perhaps ever will see one that
is perfect or would score 100 points.

discourage breeders in their efforts to
breed more perfect specimens. It is
just as sensible to do that, however, as
it is to try to tell them they cannot
combine utility and beauty to a great
er degree than they are found in the
average flock at the present time. The
thing to do is to make the effort and
quit arguiu? about it. We are cou
vinced that it can be done. If it can
not be then it is high time we had that
Today, eight or more of our leading
state colleges of agriculture and uni
versities are putting on contests and
hundreds of progressive poultrymen
are having their birds officially trap
nested. The breeder who has a good
egg record and a good show record
back of his birds is the one who is
getting the business.
FEED DURING MOLTING TIME
Partially Starving Hens to Make Them
Lose Feathers at One Time ls
Not Good Practice.
Hens should be fed liberally during
the molting season. Partially starving
the hens to malee them lose as far
as possible all their feathers at ono
time, thus straining the vitality of the
fowls to provide entire new growths
of feathers so quickly, is not a good
The method may be good when fol

ably long molting period, during which
time the birds are well cared for, pro
duces the best results. Sunflower
seed, oil meal and other oily feeds fed
during the molting season aid in the
growth of feathers.
CLEAN WATER IS NECESSARY
Keep Drinking Fountains in Cool Place
and Give Fresh Supply Three
Cool, clean water is necessary for all
kinds of poultry, young and old, at
this season of the year. Therefore,
keep the drink dishes clean and disin
fect them frequently and give a fresh
supply of cool water, with the foun
tain in a shady place, at least three
times a day.
BEGINNING MUST BE SMALL
Poultry Farms Will Be Successful
When Properly Built and Man
aged-More Are Needed.
This country needs more poultry
farms, and they will be successful
when properly built and managed.
But the beginning must be small
and the growth gradual, so that every
part of the work is promptly noted
and correctly performed.

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years, except
those exempt by law, are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of Sn cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2.00 commutation tax
or work six days on the public roads.
As this is optional with the individual,
no commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
