EGGS AND MARKET CHICKENS
Plymouth P^cks, Wyandottes and
j Rhode Island Reds Are Most Pop
ular American Breeds.
American markets prefer fowls that
arc medium size, that have short,
plump bodies and yellow llesh and
legs. The breeds that carry these re
quirements aro the Wyandottes. Ply
mouth Kocks and Rhode Island Reds,
says a writer in Indiana Farmer. One
who wishes to combine the selling of
eggs and market poultry will make no
mistake if he chooses one of these
The smaller broods of fowls-those
of the Leghorn class-are not as de
sirable as a market fowl, for the rea
sons that they have smi'.ll bodies and
do not fatten readily. Some markets
discriminate against Leghorns, quite
often the prices offered being four or

five cents under the figures given for
the larger fowls. On the other hand,
if one expects to obtain the greatest
possible income from eggs, it certain
ly would be advisable for him to
handle the smaller fowls. As a class,
Leghorns lay better than the larger
fowls and consume less feed. A Leg
horn, pullet will reach laying maturity
a month earlier than will pullets of
the larger breeds.
The larger breeds, such as Lang
?shans and Cochins, are not raised ex
tensively for the reason that they are
considered poor layers. In some sec
tions of the country, where large
roasting chickens and capons are in j
demand, they are profitably grown. |
EGGS ARE MOST PROFITABLE

Broilers During Spring.
Eggs for market should ho the most
important source of income from the
farm Hock, according to M. C. Kilpat
rick of the Ohio college of agriculture.
There is a steadily Increasing demand
for fresh egps of go.id quality at profit
able prices. In addition eggs are pro
duced with less labor than oilier poul

Poultry for market should be the
second source of income. Under pres
ent conditions the larger part of the
poultry meat produced on most farms
is a by-product produced and sold with
little regard to the cost of production.
The poultryman should plan his work
so that while producing eggs for mar

During Winter Months Hen Must Be
Given Something to Take Place
of Bugs and Insects.
One reason why eggs are not laid In
the winter months, even where there
.are pullets, is that the summer supply
of worms, bugs and insects is cut off.
and no meat substitute is given to
take their place.
The hen is an omnivorous feeder,

A good coat of whitewash on the in

lighter, eleanor and more pleasant and
healthful for the flock, but be sure and
clean the vf Hs thoroughly before ap

MAKING MISS EASY
It was a UO?OU store. Outside were
big baskets Ulled willi jelly glasses,
scrubbing brushes, stoneware, toilet
soups arni other articles at what Im
pressed Chassway as ridiculously low
pri?es. The windows displayed high

and some odds and ends of hardware,
among which Chassway noticed a card

way say that there should be a pad
lock for Uie storeroom door. Here
was an opportunity to please her and
at the same time gratify his curiosity.
It hardly seemed possible that a real
ly gout! padlock could be obtuioed for
10 cents, but then everything seemed
so cl lea j?.
Chassway entered the store and a
polite young man hurried around the
counter to wait on him.
'.Yes." said the young man, "the
padlocks are good padlocks-open
with a spring, as you will notice, slr,
and two keys to every lock, ail differ
"I'll take one," said Chassway.
As Ire spoke his gaze wandered
around the store.
"Anything else, sir?" asked the
young man, insinuatingly.
Chassway hesitated and was lost.
"Let me see," he said. "What's this?"
"That's an apple corer," said the
young man. "You simply push it
down through the apple and there's
your core extracted quickly and
"That seems a pretty good thing,"
said Chassway, admiringly. "How

vegetables you want sliced thin. Ten

"That's a dandy furniture polish,"
said the young man. "I can specially
recommend it, because I've used it
myself. It's 10 cents a bottle only.
I'd like to have you try it."
"Well, it won't hurt, I suppose, to
try a buttle," said Chassway. "What
are these brass things?"
"Oh. of course. I didn't recognize
"Five cents a dozen."
"I don't know that I need any," said
Chassway. "Still, at 5 cents a dozeu?.
I guess they'll come in handy."
To summarize, when Chassway tore
himself away he paid for a dozen
brass hooks, a towel rack, a box of
soap, a long wooden spoon, six patent
gas tips, a closet clothesrack, a pair
of rubber shoe heels, an egg beater, a
bath thermometer, the picture hang
ers, furniture polish, potato slicer, ap
ple corer and the padlock.
He exhibited his purchases with
pride when they arrived that evening
and Mrs. Chassway, after the first
shock of surprise, was delightfully ap
preciative. The cook cast a cold eye
upon them and merely sniffed.
That evening Chassway went out
into the kitchen to put his screw
hooks in appropriate places. Ile
found that tho woodwork was too hard
to get them ir. without a gimlet. Sim
ilarly the old gas tips would not come
out without pliers. All he could do
was to tie a piece of string around the
wooden spoon and hang it up and ap
ply some of tlie furniture polish to a
bureau top-and some to his trousers.
The next day, however, he made a
special trip to the notion store and
bought a gimlet and a pair of pliers.
While he was about it he also bought
? corrugated steak mallet, a wire dish
drainer, a can of enamel and a paint
brush, a wire potato masher, a salt
box, a gridiron, a tin bucket and a
set of casters.
That time Mrs. Chassway was ap
preciative but not as intensely so as
the day before. Chassway took off his
coat, put In the patent gas tips and
the screw hooks qui ie successfully. It
was the cook's evening off, so he took
advantage of her absence to invert the
kitchen table and put the casters in
its legs. "They will make it so much
easier for her to move it around when
she wants it," he explained.
The next morning the cook said:
"Mr. Chassway, if it's nil the same to
you, I'd like to have you take them
devilish little wheels out of me table.
Sure. I can't cut a loaf o' bread with
out sending lt skatin' clear acrost the
kitchen to fetch up wid a bang fer
ninst the range."
One morning as Chassway was sur
reptitiously poking into the pantry
drawers he discovered pretty nearly
the whole miscellaneous assortment of
labor-saving devices filling one of
them-wooden spoon, nutmeg grater,
potato parer, apple corer-everything
but the hooks he had screwed into the
"It's just that she's cranky, I sup
pose," said Mrs. Chassway soothingly.
"She says the corer clogs and the
slicer turns the potatoes red and the
wooden spoon's a nuisance and the
egg-beater scatters, and things like
that; and she's as cross as she cac
be about your getting things. But I
wouldn't take any notice of her, dear.
She's the best cook we've had for
some time and I think she meuus to
stay with us if we let her have her
own way in the kitchen."
"Well, there's one thing sure," said
Chassway. "She can [?tug a!ong with
any old makeshift for ?ill of mo. I'll
not put myself cut to make things
easy for her if she quits tomorrow."
But, indeed, Chilssway hy that time

Soul Satisfied by Death and

However far-reaching and doon tho
needs and cravings of. the soul may be,
they are ul! met and satisfied in the
death and resurrection of our Lord
Jesus Christ. Rut before we look at
this great reality In a two-fold aspect,
Jet us first contemplate the great fact
of his resurrection. This is demon
strated, beyond all question ol' doubt,
hy evidence more substautiul and reli
able than any accepted historical
event can boast of.
Tin? fact of his resurrection is
proved by various witnesses who saw
him on earth after he rose, ?ind by one
who saw him in glory after he ascend
ed up on high. Then we have the
value of ibis great fact; everything is
declared l?> depend on it-the interests
of those who atv dead, of ihose who
are still alive, and, indeed, of all man
kind. Rut let every eye be fixed on
the Risen one himself, on his resur
rection platform, in the magnificence
of an unsurpassed triumph. I often
wonder how little we are detained by
such a sight. Ile has left everything
behind-death, die grave, Satan's
power. Ile went down beneath every
thing; h.o has risen up above every
thing. How blessed to see him on that
morning, the brightest that ever
dawned on earth !

in itself sin. Wrong desire of any
sort is sin; we are under the domin

Christ pledges us his word that, If
we will let him set us free, we shall
be free Indeed; sin cannot have over
us even the dominion of our wanting
to do wrong. So it is that when we
really believe in Christ's cleansing
