Conducted by the Home Economics Department of Berea College
Among the new Home Economics
books In which scientific food farts
are made plain is one entitled "Food
and Life," by lning-Gulick. This
hook might well he used as a basis
for English work with children.
The following is quoted from it:
Food and Health
"The Chinese have a custom of
paying a doctor to keep them well.
Our way has been to call a doctor
only when we were ill, paying him for
his services during the illness. Their
way would be to pay a doctor so
much a year. If the man keeps well
the doctor has no further duties. In
rase nf illnes the doctor must at
tend his patient without extra charge.
It is the modern idea which is being
adopted in schools and factories, as
well as in the army nnd navy, to pre
vent illness rather than to wait for
it to come upon us. This book, and
chapter, takes the
day for a week or 10 days, but only
small amount at a time. Chicks
will grow faster if fed four or five
times each day than if fed only three, SOur milk to

ever, chicks should have grass

run on a grass range are usually
strong and thrifty and will grow
much more rapidly than those that

CARE OF BABY CHICKS
Keep the Chirks Warm
Every poultry club member should
always bear in mind that newly
hatched chicks are delicate little fel
lows and must be treated with care.
They hatch in a temperature of 102
to 105 degrees F., and their first and
moat important requirement for the
next 48 hours or more is warmth.
As soon aa the chicks have been
taken from the nest or incubator and
tions of feeds nvay be used with
good results for a week; then grad
ually substituted for one or two feeds
each day a mixture of equal parts of
finely cracked wheat, cracked corn,
and pinhead oatmeal or hulled oata,
to which may be added a small
quantity of broken rice, millet, rape-
i seed, or charcoal if obtained. This
mixture makes an ideal ration. If
corn can not be had, cracked kafir
or rolled or hulled barley may be
substituted. A commercial chick
feed containing a variety of grains
can be bought from most feed deal
ers and may be used instead of the
home mixture if desired.

The question might be asked what
is best for the ceilings. In no
event would I paper a ceiling it is
not sanitary. If plaster is fairly
good, I would use Alabestine or Kal
somine. This is a powder that comes
in many shades, ready to mix with
hot water, to right consistency.
This is easily applied and is much
cheaper than paint or paper, and
more sanitary. In painting and var
nishing floors rare should be given
to have all oily and greasy spots re
moved before applying paint or var
nish. If it is a new, fine floor, make
some light oak stain and give your
floor a mat, then let it dry well be
fore applying varnish, then apply
two good coats of floor varnish, al
lowing it to dry well between each
coat. If it is open grain, Tike oak,
make part filler with color in it.
Apply to floor, then rub well into the
grain, then when dry apply one coat
of thin shellac. Sandpaper lightly
liefore applying floor varnish, which
should have two good coats, and let
dry between each coat.
One can use wax over the shellac
if desired. If floors are painted, be
careful and have all splints in the
floor smoothed up before applying
paint. V hen all is ready, apply two
good coats of paint, let dry well, then
give one good coat of floor varnish

our food must be carried in liquid
