PUAE BRED POULTRY
What Clemson's Poultry Div
sion is Doing.
Clemson College. - Improvements
are being constantly made in the poul
try plant operated by the Division of
Poultry Husbandry of Clemson Col
lege. The main object in establishing
this plant was to enable the students
taking the poultry course at the Col
lege to study and handle typical speci
mcus in the popular breeds of poul
try, and also to supply breeding stock
of high quality to the farmers of the
State and to others who wish to im
prove the breed of chickens kept at
The following breeds are represent
ed: Barred Plymouth Rocks, in which
both the cockerel-bred and pullet-bred
lines of breeding are being carried on
separately; Single Comb Rhode Island
Reds, White Wyandottes, Single Comb
Buff Orpingtons, Dark Cornish (Indian
Game), Black Langshans and Single
Comb White Leghorns.
Every specimen in these breeding
pens has been personally selected, and
many Slate Champions, blue ribbon
winners, and fowls of exceptional
merit can be found therein. For ex
anple, the cock heading the first pen
of Rhode Island Reds is a brother of
the State Champion Male; the cock at
the head of the Barred Plymouth Rock
pen for producing exhibition cock
erels came from Judge Cosh in New
Jersey at a large outlay; the dark
Cornish pen contains females that
were never beaten in the shows of
For four years Clemson College
bred the Tom Barron strain of heavy
laying Single Comb White Leghorns. E
The stock and eggs of this strain have E
been distributed over the State and f
the females are certainly heavy egg -
producers. However, there i -one ob
jection to this strain of White Leg
horns and that is their unfitness for
exhibition purposes. Since every other a
breed of poultry kept at the College i
is of the highest quality, the Tom Bar
ron White Leghorns with their big
combs, high tails and sometimes -
brassy plumage looked entirely out of
This year a breeding pen of the best
exhibition strain of Single Comb
White leghorns has justO been ob
tained from the leading breeder of Il
linois. The male won second at the
recent Chicago Show in a :lass of
over three hundred Leghorns, while
the females are of the same high
quality. As many chicks as possible
will be reared from this pen so that
the flock of White Leghorns will be
built up to its former number.
While it is not the intention of the
Division of Poultry Husbandry to
grow stock for sale or to sell eggs for
hatching, it frequently happens that
fine breeding and exhibition birds can
be obtained and also a few sittings of 4
eggs from some of these high class
breeding pens. That the farmers and
breeders of the State are availing
themselves of this opportunity to ob
tain the best breeding stock and eggs
is shown by the fact that the demand
far exceeds the supply.

Water Glass Keeps Them at Two
Cents Per Dozen.
Clemson College-The preservation
of eggs in a solution of water glass
is increasing in popularity every year,
Tt is unquestionably a successful meth
od of keeping fresh eggs from spring
until the winter months. The process
is very simple and no loss can be sus
tainedl if the eggs are placed in the
solution the day thmey are laid and the
solution is pure and suitable for the
Unless a good grade of water glass
for pr-eserving eggs can be obtained
from the local druggist, it is prefer
able to ordler the lirquid direct from
the manfteturert One gallon of the
"l0 brand used will make ufflcient
preserv'ine: solution to cover trom fifty
to eighty dozen eggs. A gallon can
shinped by 1,repaidl Parcel Post costs
a little more than $1.00. The expense
of the solution is, therefore, less than
2c per~ dozen i ggs.
Wooden kegs, tubs or pails, stone
crocks, galvanized Iron cans, or any
other- c'onvenient v-essels will serve
the purpose. It is important to keep
the vessel covered tightly to prevent
the preserving soltution dIrying dlown
andl exporsing the eggs. At least two
incites of solution should be above the
top layer of eggs. The vessels con
ta ininag the eggs should be kept under
the house or in a cooi place in sum

even if the solution froze solid the
eggs were not injured in any way. The
name of the manufacturer of water
glass and further information can be

of Clemson College.
Do not wait when insects are found
doing damage to crops of any kind.
