HOW TO GET EGGS IN WIN
The farmer who leaves hia poul
try to roost in the apple tree at the
corner of the barn, and to pick up
their living at the pigs' trough and
in the barnyard, may occasionally
get an egg in winter. But as a
matter of fact there is on most
farms a great dearth of eggs from
from November to March. With
a warm shelter and suitable feed,
pullets that begin to lay in the fall
and will continue to lay through
the winter. It is mainly a question
of feed. The staple feed is Indian
corn, especially in the West, be
cause it is most plentiful and the
most convenient. It furnishes
plenty of fat and keeps up the heat
of the fowls, but is poor in albumen
and the phosphates. They want a
variety of grains and vegetables.
Most farmers have milk, and if this
can be added it will be all they
need. Butchers' scrap-cake is good,
and may safely be kept in the poul
try yard where the fowls can help
themselves at pleasure. Boiled pota
toes or turnips, mashed and mixed
with Indian meal, make an excellent
feed for laying hens. Fowls are
particularly fond of cabbages ani
turnips at all stages of their growth,
and eat them raw greedily every
day if they can get them. We have
found so good result from feeding
cabbages to laying hens that we
always lay in a large supply for the
winter. Refuse from the butcher's
and offal from the fish market also
furnish good material for making
eggs. These are accessible to most
villages and can be had at a small
cost. A hen is only a machine for
preducing eggs. If you want the
finished product you must put the
raw material into the hopper. It
should not be forgotten that there
is a liberal grinding going onz in
the gizzard, and the laying bird
should have free access to gravel,
with sharggrit, broken oyster and
clam shells, which assist in reduc
ing the grain and forming egg shell.
With a plentiful supply of egg
- producing food, hens will lay well
in winter, when eggs bring the
highest price.-Col. Farmer.
Crossing. fowls enables us to
combine the mierits of different
breeds. The Brahma has a very
small comb, is heavily feathered,
and grows to large size. By cross
ing this breed -with the Leghorn,
we reduce the comb of the latter,
increase the size of the body, and
afford heavier feathering. The
crossed fowl will sit, though the
propensity is not so strong as in
the pure Brahma, and the good
qualities of both breeds are blen
ded. A cross of the Brown Leg
horn and Pat,ridge Cochin permits
of uniformity of co!or, and makes a
superb fowl for all purposes. The
IHudan answers excellently for
crossing on the large'coarse hens,
the offspring usually being larger
then either of the parents. When
two non-sitting breeds are crossed,
snch as Leghorns and Hamburgs,
the result is sometimes persistent
'sitters. An excellent cross is to
use a L. ogshan cockerel with large
common hens, the pullets from
-which are mated with a Houdan
-cockerel. This gives a hardy, early
maturing of any of the Asiatics,
but has dark legs, which are con
sidered objectionable by some.
For plumpness of body, yellow legs,
and hardiness, the new breed-the
Wyandottes (formerly American
Sebrights) are equal to any. They
are nearly as large inl size as the
Plymouth Rocks. Crossed fowls do
not produce uniform chicks. A
pure-blooded cockerel must always
be mated with crossed pullets. If
this is not done, the chicks hatched
from the crossed stock vwill be of
different colors, shapes, and sizes,
as they usually revert to different
ancestors. Sandy soil is best for
feathered-legged breeds. Plenty of
room in the coops should always
be allowed, without regard to the
breed of fowl.-P. H.' Jacobs,
in American Agriculturist for Dec.

"Well, I'll take a two cent stamp,

Tn TH WisEs.-A gentleman
while sitting at the dinner-table
with his family, had these words
said to him by his son, a lad of
eleven years: "Father, I have been
thinking, if I could have one single
wish of mine, what I would choose."
"To give you a better chance,"
said the father, "suppose the allow
ance be increased to three wishes,
what would they be? Be careful,
He made his choice thoughtfully;
first, of a good character, second,
of good health, and third, of a
His father suggested to him that
fame, power, riches, and various
other things are held in general
esteem among men.
"I have thought of all that,"
said he; "but, if I have a good
character and good health and a
good education, I shall be able to
earn all the money that will be of
any use to me, and everything
will come along in its right place"'
A wise decision indeed, for a lad
of that age. Let our young readers
think of it and profit by it.-Selected.
A Warsaw naper gives a curious
story of a wager between two
wealthy Polish landlords. They
agreed each to isolate two hens,
two ducks and geese from the poul
try yard, and allow them to multi
ply for fifteen years. Superfluous
male and maimed female birds
could be sold, but the total sale
was not to exceed ten per cent. of
the whole flock at the close of fif
teen years. At the close of that
term the possessor of the largest
flock was to get the smaller flock
and ten thousand rubies in cash,
to be distributed among charitable
institutions. Upon settling the bet
a short time ago, the loser had 1,.
890 hens, 530 ducks and 276 geese,
a total of 2,696 birds. The winter
had 1,084 hens, 965 ducks-and 895
geese, a total of 2,844 birds.
We don't know who to credit

told in a back handed way; "We
