Domestic fowls originated in the.

together ith the righi kind of feed
and plenty of exercise, has been found
to Increase to a marked degree the
number of eggs laid by pullets In the
fall and winter. It does ngt pay to
provide light for older hens. A 14
hour day for the laying flock during
the winter months ls the aim of those
who are following this practice.
Experiments aro being carried on by
the United States Department of.

farm at Beltsville, Md., for the pur
pose of securing more data on this
phase of poultry work. The results
secured tims fur corroborate the testi
mony of others ns to the value of 11

Tho birds used in the government
experiments are fed four times a day,
at eight, twelve, four and some time
after dark. This last feed ls for the
birds' breakfast. In addition to the
four feeds a dry mash ls kept con
stantly before the birds.
By means of an ordinary alarm
clock an electric switch ls turned on
about 4:30 In the morning. Care ls
taken to Increase the length of the
time of Illumination grndunlly or the

decrease must be made slowly. From

To secure the desired results It lo

awake, but also water. In very cold
weather some special means of heating

"When you pay the apothecary a
sum that seems like a dollar a whiff
for something that delights your
senses, or if you are especially fastid

ev^r stop to wonder where his pre
cious ingredients came from? The
sunny isles and lands along the Med
iterranean probably grew some of
the flowers, others perhaps were
plucked by dark Moorish hands in
Algeria, and mayhap an animal in
the brooding hills of Western China
gave its lifo to furnish one constitu
ent of the perfume.
"The vegetable kingdom is neces
sarily the most fertile source of per
fumes. From Its Howers, such as the
rose and Jessamine, and from its
seeds, woods and barks, such as the
spices and sandalwood, even tho most
fastidious connoisseur would be able
to select either some simple odor or
a complex bouquet. Nor aro they for
perfumes alone, but for scenting
soaps, cream, pomades, and in mak
