s less the profits are probably just as

ing and care for egg production In
rolvd. the use of the scratching shed
which is kept full of leaves, straw or
>ther litter. into which the grain is
frequently scattered so that the fowls
ire kept busy exercising.
The distinction should also be made
iere between the Leghorns and heavy
breeds. enforced exercise being much
nore essential in the latter case. Hens
that are kept shut indoors must be
provided with something to occupy
heir attention, for If standing around
in a restless fashion they will fall
into the egg eating, feather pulling
ind ther obnoxious habits. In addI
tion to grain In the litter, cabbages or
split mangles may be fastened to the
walls of the henhouse for the hens to
)eck at. The whole attention and care
>f the successful poultryman should
e directed toward seeing that the
ens are busy, contented and happy.
here is a knack about this that is
rery hard to describe In words.
The principle of feeding hens is not
Wprticularly different from that of
reeding young and growing chicks.
Water, grit. meat, grain and green
rood are the essentials. and if any one
is neglected good results cannot be
btaLned. A great deal has been writ
Len and said in poultry papers and
government bulletins about balanced
rations. As a matter of fact, the effort
:o balance the poultry rations by chem
ical statistics is more or less a misap-:
Alication of scientific knowledge. The
oint is that hens have individual pref
eences and will not consume their
rood in the portions they are given
md, what is more, will. If allowed to
'ollow their own individual Instincts,
probably get the chemical elements
they need better than if their owner
ittempt to force so much food down
lhem Li machine-like fashion.
The custom of feeding hens by ex
posing grain In hoppers has progressed
rapidly within the last few years.
rhis method simplifies the feeding prob
tem very much and is applicable to all
birds on range and Leghorns indoors.
[t will not do. however, for heavy shut
i fowls, as they will become lazy and
oerfed. The foods exposed In the
oppers should be whole grains. and it
is best to have a separate division in
oppers for each kind of grain; other
wise the fowls in scratching for the
grains they most like will waste the
>ther kind of food. This Is especially
moticeable when the so called dry
mash or mixture of dry grains is fed
in the hopper. I do not recommend
;round grains fed dry for laying hens.
The feeding of a wet mash is one
)f the simplest ways of giving vege
tables or grain food to a large number
)f hens quickly. The warm mash may
lso have some stimulating effect upon
=g production; at least It is used by a
great many successful egg farmers. I

leaves or any cooked vegetables mixed

bran shorts and cornmeal is fed once
day. The hour of feeding is immate-o
rial, provided the hens have before
tem at all times shelled corn and beef
crap in hoppers.

In the case of laying bens the fact
umst not be forgotten that laying is

y related to the hen's nervous organ

tiey will not lay. Dogs and strange.rs
bout the premises are known to have
m detrimental effect upon the egg yield.,
mad careful poultrymen will not permit

a any manner. It Is in the cobserva
ion of such points as these that dis
tinguishes the true husbandnman from
hose who fall as poultrymen.

One of Dr. Hale's Jokes.
When he was quite a young man the
late Dr. Edward Everett Hale played a
practical joke on some girls who were
members of a party with whom he was
mmmering on the Massachusetts coast.
All these girls were reading the same
exciting novel, and one day at dinner
It was a leading topic. Knowing that
none of them had finished it. Hale. un
known to them, carried it away with
him, the next morning when he went
to the city. On the train be wrote an
absurd conclusion to the novel. laying
the final scene at the summer resort.
Carrying this bogus conclusion to a
publishei-, a friend of his, he had it
put in type, and then, carefully remov
lng the bona fide conclusion, he pasted
in :-is own. On his return he placed
the book on the piazza and waited.
The look which spread over a girl's
face as she read that last chapter was,
Dr. Hale declared, worth going far to
see.-Woman's Home Companion.
