PLAN FOR CLEAN EGGS
-Sunshine Is Necessary for the
Health of Laying Hens.
Poultryman Should Follow Nature's
Ptan and Make Winter Months
Comfortable to Fow!s-Furnish
Plenty of Nests.
(By A. C. SMITH.)
Sunshine is absolutely necessary for
the health and vigor of the laying
hen. Low window* should be set so
that the sun will shine into every
part of the house during some part of
the day. Roosts should be placed on
a level, and not too high, as the hens
are apt to injure themselves either by
crowding, falling or flying against a
projection about the house. Keep the
windows in the poultry house clean.
A Trap Nest With Door Closed.
Rub them repeatedly with old news
papers. Sunshine in winter is the
greatest of tonics.

First, an ample number of nests is,
of course, necessary, but an ample
number means no more, than, and
probably not as many as, are usually

As the name will indicate, this Is

an oyster shelL
This insect has been reported on
over forty different food plants in the
United States, including most of our
fruit trees, also many ornamental and
shade trees. It has proved especially
bad in some sections of this state on
lilac and ash.
If one of these scales be raised in
the winter or early spring, there will
be found beneath it a mass of very
small yellowish or whitish eggs that
l4tch about the middle of May into
small lice that appear as mere specks
to the naked eye.
They move about for a few days,
then insert their beaks into tWe bark
and begin to feed. By the end of the
season they are fully developed and
have secreted a scaly covering over
the entire body. In the fall, the adult
deposits the mass of small eggs and

CONVENIENT IN TlE APIARY
Brush Made of Manila Rope Is Handy
for Cleaning Combs of Bees
Tool Box Is Useful.
I have several little conveniences
that I use in my apiary, one of which
is a brush for clearing the combs
of bees, writes B. A. Manly of Milo,
Iowa, in Bee Gleanings and Culture.
Take a round stick, 16 inches long,
and with a rip-saw divide it for about
nine inches, leaving the other end for
a handle. Take a piece of one-inch
manila rope six inches long, and with
the strands fill the opening in the
stick, allowing them to project on
both sides of the stick. At the end
secure it with bee wire and securely
Bee Brush Made of Rope.
nail the stick with one-inch brads.
This makes the best brush I have
eon, and is almost indestructible.
Another convenience is my covered
ive seat and tool box. My hive seat
Is 14 by 16, with a pocket on each end
6 by 14. These pockets come within
an inch of the top, and a cover Is
made to telescope over the seat and -
rest on the top of the pockets. Un
der the seat I have my smoker fuel;
In one of the pockets my smoker, and
n the other my tools. The framework
of the cover is made of % by 1%-inch
white pine. The roof is rubberoid.
Everything under it keeps dry, though
I leave it standing in the apiary all
summer, and at the same time I take
no chance of setting anything on fire
in the honey house.
FEEDING MASH IN DRY FORM
More Equal DistH bution of Food Is
Obtained by Us.. of Hoppers
Feed Some Cut Bone.
Some of the most experienced poul
try breeders claim that the best re
sults can be obtained by feeding mash
in dry form in hoppers where fowls
ave access to it at all times. This
allows a more equal distribution of
A slight feed of moist mash about
three times a week in addition to this
dry mash is good. It is essential in
preparing this mash that the mixing
process not be slighted, as a little
longer mixing will result in a much
better mash and prevent the using of
an excess of water, which tends to
make the mixture pasty.
By mixing green cut bone with the
mash in the quantity hereinafter giv
en a food will be obtained that is un
equaled for laying hens.
Probably the best way to feed this
ration is to give the flock a quantity
which they will consume entirely in
from eight to ten minutes.
This should be given them three
times a week and the amount usually
runs so that each fowl will receive on
an average of one ounce at each feed
ing or every fo days. In other
words, about one-half ounce of green
cut bone per fowl per day is consid
ered the right amount.
Alfalfa Versus Timothy.
In one ton of alfalfa hay there are
1044 pounds of digestible nutrients, of
which 220 pounds are digestible pro
tein. In one ton of timothy hay there
are 92G pounds of digestible nutrients,
of which 56 pounds are digestible pro
tein. The nutrients in the timothy
hay are furnished a little cheaper than
in the alfalfa, but the protein in the
alfalfa is far cheaper than in the tim
othy. As a dlairy feed we would con
sider alfalfa hay cheaper at $26 per
ton than timothy at $20.
Cracks Bad Ventilators.
Having cracks in the barn is not a
good system of ventilation. A draft
of cold air causes the cow much dis
comfort. Windows hinged^ at the bot

DISEASES OF POTATO,
Problems of Increasing im.

No Trouble Has Caused Greater Dif.
fcrer.ce of Opi.ri.: as to Nature
and Cause Than "Leaf-Roll"
Symptoms Vary Greatly.
(By N. OrTON0)
No plant disease in this generation
has b.cn the subject of such general
diserzs-ion as that known in Germany
as the "Dlattroll-krankheit," herein
named "leaf-roll." None has aroused
greatcr difference of opinion as to its
nature and cause, and no other malady
of plants is today receiving so much in
v:stigation by skilled pathologists as
this Possibly no disease which has
appea. :d since the forties presents a
reater menace to potato culture. The
literature on leaf-roll has become so
vrlthminous that few will undertake to.
peruse all the contributions.
Leaf-roll is a disease characterized
by an upward relling of the leaves, by

transmission of the diseased condi
tion through tubers planted Its symp

can be most clearly outlined by sepa
The rolling of the leaves is the most
constarnt and ec.-picuoas symptom of
this disease. The leaf-ets curl or roll
upward on their midrib, ci ten assumn
tug a nearly tuibuiar shape, and giving
- plant a starvinig a.ppearance. This
lolling is scr.et::.es r..str'cted to the
upper LirAs, while~ in other cascs all
or nearly all of the leaves may exhibit
it. This type of roll is dis:inct from
the curly-dwarf conditicn, but a very
similar roll may be induced by other
The color of the feilage changes
with the a d ent cf 1::af-: o1, but there
color aptoms vary greatly, from
caea v; here the leave~s assume an un
healthy, light-green color to those
marked by pronounced yellowish, red
dish zr l;urplish tints.
The cifect of leaf-roll on the plant
is to check developmcent. There -is a
lessening or cessation of growth. The
shoots remain srort ard the leaves
stand more npight rhere is, how
ever, no such shortening of stems and
leaf ribs as occ.urs ia curly-dwarf, with
its resultant deforrmntion of the plant.
The durat:cai cf life of the plant is
shortned >y leaf-roll. This is a rela
tive matter. since the leaf-roll cast
may die earlier, as v:ould be expected
of sick plants.
The true leaf-reli is inherita:>lo. The
tubers from diseased plants produce
diseased progeny. t.s a general rule.

This affords a means of distinguishing
from the genuine leaf-roll those tem
porary conditions which give rise to a
siiilar appearance of the plants.
All those who are best acqiuaitted
with the trouble agree as to the re
sults of plantir;; diseased seed stck.
This point is one of cr.pital imaportance
in the control of the discase and of
great i-terest in its bearing on the
nature of thc dh~eare. That leaf-roll is
not communicable from diseased to
healthy plants is the conclusion to be
drawn from all available evidence.
