Food That Will Make Baby Chicks Grow
Clemson College, May 23-Do not
stunt the growth of the young poultry
stock by underfeeding, is the advice
given by F. C. Hare, poultry husband
man of Clemson Oollege, who says it is
important for farmers to feed baby
chicks well and to continue feeding to
pullets well throughout the summer,
in order to have them in condition for
fall and winter laying, which is most
profitable. Prof. Hare gives all neces
sary feeding information in the follow
One of the best foods for baby chicks
when they nead nourishment at 24 to
30 hours old is a mixture of two hard
boiled eggs cut up fne, two broken
crackers and a small handful of oat
meal.' Roll with the hand, mix thor
oughlv and scatter a little on a clean
But do not throw the first food in lit
ter, because it is necessary first to
teach the baby chicks what to eat.
Otherwise they will eat any small sub
stance. This applies to feeding a mix
ture of small grains as well.
Feed the egg mixture six times the
first day and four times daily thereaf
ter. Place before the chicks a shallow
box containing equal parts of wheat
bran and oatmeal. This box must be
kept filled for at least two weeks, al
lowing the chicks to eat all th; oran
oatmeal mash they desire.
On the second day, cAmmence scat
tering smali grains and seeds in one
inch litter (oat straw, shredded or cut
fodder, broken pine straw or cut alfalfa)
to make the chicks exercise. The fol
lowing is an excellent mixture of
scratching grains for baby chicks.
Equal parts cracked wheat, cracked
rice, cracked corn and millet seed, add
ed to lend variety to the food. The ob
ject of feeding small grain is to make
the chicks scratch, work and thereby
keep healthby. dry mash is to supply the
best growing foods and the more mash
the chicks eat the faster they will
grow, provided one keeps them exer
cising by scratching for grain and run
ning over a good range.
The dry mash can be changed at the
end of two weeks to this chesper mix
ture. Wheat bran, 5 pounds; wheat
middlings, 4 pounds; cotton seed mcal,
2 pounds. Total, 20 pounds. The cot
ton seed meal must be good feeding
meal, Keep this mixture dry before
'the chicks constantly.
Buttermilk and sour skim milk are
palatable and nutritious foods for baby
chicks and matu.re fowls. Give them
all they will drink and mis up once
daily a moist mash of the dry mixture
and the sour milk product.
The grain mixture may be changed
to whole wheat, cracked corn, cane
seed and other larger grains as the
chicks increase in size. Fecd the.
grain morning and evening in litter
and the dry mash in a hopper.
The only satisfactory way to supply
green feed and green range is to plough
up the ground, drop a small piece of
Bermuda grass sod every 15 inches,
turn the next furrow over the chunks
of sod and untinue until the range is
sodded. This one application will pro

RURAL SCHOOL TEM
SHOULD BE EXiENDE
By P. P. Claxton,
U. S. Commissioner of Education.
In most States school days I
country children are fewer than I
city children. The average length
school term in cities of the Unit
States is one hundred and eigh
five days; In rural communities 0
hundred and thirty-eight days. a d
ference of forty-seven days. In so
States the difference is much great
than this average. In many counti
the average length of the raw
school term Is less than one h%
dred days, and in some districts It
less. On the other hand, In t
States of California, New York a&
Connecticut, the country schools a
in session one hundred and eigh
days in a year, and In several oth
States almost as long. The count
schools of Rhode Island are in si
sion one hundred and ninety days
If all children are to have an eqc
opportunity for education we ma
even up the school terms of t
country and give to all country cb
dren at least as many days as a
now given to eity children. 0
hundred and eighty-five days
schooling a year for all children w
not be too much. There are col
tries in which the schools, both f
city and country, are In session fre
two hundred and twenty to two ha
dred and fifty days or more In t)
year. American children need
much education as those of any of
er country, and this applies to t]
rural as well as urban districts.
AN AGRICULTURAL COUNCI
By T. N. Carver,
Professor of Economics, Harvard Universt
Every city has its chamber of coa
merce or its Board of Trade. Tl
purpose of suCh an organization
to study economic and business c
portunities of the city and promo
enterprises which will help to bul
the city. Does any one know of
good and suffietent reason why E
ery rural neighborhood ought n
have a similar organization?
In Germany they already have sui
organizations. They are general
called the "landwirthschaftsrath"
agricultural council. Some studen
of the problem of rural organizatic
are strongly of the opinion that sui
an agricultural council is necessa:
before much can be done for the be
tering of rural credit or the markE
tg of farm produce. There Is
object, for example,, in having mo:
capital in a farming neighborho<
unless the farmers know without at
guess-work just how to use .that caj
tal so as to increase the productic
and the profit of their farms. If
the leading farmers of a neighbC
hood would lay their heads togeth
and talk over the situation and stu<
the opportunities for new investme!
they arould be less likely to mal
mistakes than If they work secretl
as sepfrlie individuals.
