To the farmer in the great agricul
tural districts far removed from any
city these outlets for poultry and
eggs are not available. It is entirely
feasible for the farmer who has a
large enough flock to insure a case or
more a week. to ship eggs by express
to cities some two or three hunderd
miles distant, but with the exception
of the larger consuming centers of
the east the premiums paid will hard
ly make this profitable. When none
of the previous mentioned opportuni
ties Is available it remains for the
farmers of a community to content
themselves either with the price that
the local produce dealer gives or to
form a co-operative marketing asso
ciation and market their own produce.
Where the local produce buyer Is at
all fair and reasonable I should not
advise farmers to hasten into co-op
erative deals, for some one must be
in charge, and a man who owns the
bsnes winl give It more careful at-!
2tenton than one who Is merely work
ing on a salary. But In either case
It Is highly desirable that the farmers;
get together and come to some under
standing with the egg buyer regard
bg purchasing of eggs on some other;
method than by case count.
The term case count means to buy
at a uniform price all eggs as they are
offered regardless of size and quality.
Eggs In Denmark are all purchased by
weight. - The time will undoubtedly;
come when the same method will be;
pursued In this country. The most Im
mediate need of reform, however. is
to insist upon the buying o eggs upo
a candled basis. especially in be sum
mer and fall. This means that the:
buyer must keep each lot of eggs sep
arately and examine them with the
candle or light and throw out the rot-:
ten and stale eggs. This, of course, is;
some trouble and expense, but there
is no other way known by which the
grade of eggs can be kept up and a
good price obtained
If eg are bought case count dis
honest producers will send bad eggs
to market, which, mixed in with good
Iones, will lower the price to all, and
the farmers who produced a fair qual
ity of eggs will be cheated out of their
honest profits. The egg dealer Is only
too anxious to have eggs bought upon
quality basis. and it is the ignorance
of the farmers to their own interest
'that prevents sruch methods of buying

Essential Points of Egg Quality.
Sometimes poultrymen secure a fancy
outlet for theIr eggs, but do not appre
cdate the actual points of quality suf
ficiently to hiold their market. I have
known poultry-meni to ship eggs which
were produced on a poultry farm and
were but a few days old and on that
account seem to think they had a sufi
ceat basis upon which to ask a goodly
premium a bove market prices, when, as
a matter of fact, their eggs were ac
tually inferior to the better grade of
far recellpts from the more northerly!
and densely settled communities.
Alkarazzai Is the name given to ves

Eggs to seU as Lancy siock must bo
first of a good size. The best grade
of Daanih eggs weigh twenty-nine
ounces to the dozen. Eggs weighing
less than twenty-four ounces :o the
dozen or eight to a pound cannot be
considered first class stock. The bet
ter grades of the American Leghorn
egg farm shipments run about twenty
five to twenty-six ounces. Uniformi
ty in size is quite Important. as it
gives a better Impression of the ac
tual size than do mixed lots. Putting
In extra large eggs will make the or
dinary ones look small. Uniformity
of color is important In some markets.
In others this matter Is given little
consideration. Cleanliness Is always
important. This means clean nests.
Washing eggs Is a poor business, as it
takes time, leaves the eggs looking
mussy and increases the contamina
tion of bacteria which causes the eggs
Youth in eggs does not guarantee
what the consumer considers fresh
ness. Eggs will spoil more In a hot
kitchen in two days than they will In
a cold storage house In thirty days.
The first thing essential In eggs that
are to show quality is that they be
infertile. This is especially impor
tant in summer time. and I would ad
vise all those catering to fancy egg
markets to kill off or pen up all male
birds after the middle of May. Eggs
must be kept dry at all times. When
the shells become damp, bacteria
grow through them and start decay.
On the other hand, if eggs are kept
very dry, warm or exposed to wind
the water will evaporaw, causing the
contents to shrink in the shell.
The number of cracked eggs de
pends very largely upon the security
of the package. If you ship in cases.
get new cases. not secondhand ones.
They cost only one-half a cent a dozen
more, and for high grade eggs appear
ance alone is well worth the differ
ence. Use new fillers in the case, and
use clean, new excelsior on top and
bottom instead of old newspapers.
There are two tricks of the trade
used to impress the consumer with the
fact that the eggs are guaranteed
fresh. One Is to rubber stamp the date
on theegg. The otber is to pack the
eggs in cartons holding a dozen each
which are sealed with a gummed pa
per seal. These seals may be dated If
one wishes to carry the argument that
far. Rubber stamping will cost but a
tenth of a cent a dozen for labor.
whereas cartons will cost anywhere
from a cent to a cent and a half each.
according to their quality. If long (two
eggs by six) cartons are used they
may be packed In regular thirty dozen
cases. This form of shipment is good
where you can sell such packages to
retail grocers. The producer's name
being on the package, the consumers
learn to call for his brand, and the gro
cer then must buy of you or lose the
trade. The retailer is, usually -wlse"
to this scheme and prefers to use car
tons with his own name.
Poultry Flesh For Market.
The preparation of poultry flesh for
the market begins in the eouditioning
of the fowl. Leghorn broilers do not
need any special fattening or deshing.
for when growing rapidly at the age
of eight or ten weeks they are in
prime condition for eating. Likewise
hens that are being sold after their
usefulness as layers is over will re
quire no special fattening, as they do
not gain In weight enough at this time
to pay for the extra trouble.
Young male birds of the heavy
breeds of chickens are most profitably
sold at from three to four months of
age. At this time they should weigh
from three and one-half to four pounds
apiece and can be materially Improved
in quality and be made to gain rapid
ly in weight If they are placed In
coops or even shut up In small yards
and fed heavily from two to four
weeks on soft ground foods. Such fat
tening rations should be made of
ground graIn, as cornmeal and mid
dlings or, better still, oats finely
ground and the hull sifted out, mixed
with milk or buttermilk into a soft
batter. If no milk is available It will
be necessary to add 10 per cent of
meat meal to this mixture. An occa
sional relish of green food is also de
Fowls fattened in this fashion not
only make a clear gain In weight that
is proftable, but gain materially in
the quality of the flesh. These milk

fed chickens should be sokd as such.
andf the local packer does not recog
nize them and offer a hI;;her price it
will be necessary for the farmer w bo
fattens his chickens to look to some
more distant muarket, as In getting
fancy prices on guaranteed fresh eggs.
I would not ordinarily advise the
small grower to attempt to kill and
dress his own stock of poultry. Like
wise It is equally fooli.h for him to
attempt to ship them alive to any great
distance, as they will deteriorate great
ly in quality while en route.
The local poultry dealer Is practically
the only place where the farmer can
sell his poultry flesh, and a little ur;:
ing of the dealer to give special at
tenon to his fattened or extra fancy
stock will probably be time better
spent than in an effort to market It

The Old Time Surgeon.
e Before anaesthetics were known the
surgeon's only expedient was to abridge
his patient's sufferings by working
rapidly. In this the old time surgeons
r did wonders. They had a control and
. surety in their hands that are now
seldom found. One day the celebrated
surgeon Malsonneure had to amputate
f the leg of a poor devil, who began to
b howl In advance. "rIll give you my
L watch." said the surgeon. "If the oper
ation lasts more than a minute." The
man accepted the offer, but was oblig
ed to forego the handsome watch. as
the operation took-less time than it re
quires to describe. To amputate an
arm at the shoulder is a most difficult
operation. Dr. Langenbeek of Ger
. many did it in two minutes. A young
physician who came to see him per
form the operation adjusted his spec
tacles to his nose so as not to lose a
single movement. but when the spec
tacles were in place the operation was
over and the severed arm lay on the
door. Times have changed much since

Figures of Spoocira
A well known ventriloquist who bad
consented to give a performance In aid
of charity beard that certain muemberv
of his prospective audience were de
termined to watch the movements of
his mouth with the closest scrutiny
with a view of confounding him. The
night came. the attendants carried in
three dummies on chairs, nd the artist
made '2Is -appearance. H3is perform
ance was unusually successful, the
muscles of hIs face giving no evidence
of his art. The changes of voice were
marvelous, and the astonished crowd
at the close of the exhibition gave hIm
a rousing cheer. Again and agiln
they called him back, and he express
ed his pleasure by Innumerable bows.
At last the cheering ceased, and he
was permitted to retire. Scarcely bad
he done so when the three "lay" fig
tres got upl from their cbhairs aend waut
edi off the stazg.. The ventriloquist lhad
employed three friends to impersonate
his usuaxl mechanetical igures.
The origin of the word "bul" as th'
definition of at confused utterance Is
doubtful. Some philologists say it
comes from the French boule--fraud"
-and others that It is-derived from
the Ieelandic bull---nonsense.'' Many
definitions have been attempted. but
the best probably is that of Sydney
Smith- Writing of the difference be
tween wit axnd "-bulls,"~ he says: ''Wit
discovers real relations that are appar
ent; .bulls' admit apparent relations
that are not real. The stronger the
ipparent connection and the more comi
Iplete the recal disconnectioni of the
ideas the greater the surprise and the
better the 'bull.'"
