TRAP-NESTING IS ADVOCATED
Only Certain Method of Separating
Good Layers From the Poor la to
Keep Dally Records.
Tlint tlio only sure way to know
which lions In a flock nro doing the
work and which are not "earning
their keep," is by using the trap nest,
Is the belief of Prof. James Dryden of
tho poultry husbandry department of
tho Oregon agricultural cullego.
"High egg production la not a char
acteristic of any ono breed of fowls,"
nays l'rofesor Dryden. "Tho trap-nest
has demonstrated this. There Is no
particular shape or tpe that Indicates
good laying qualities, so far, at any
rate, as our present knowledge goes.
"Tho only certain method of sepa
rating tho good layers from the poor
Is to uso tho trap nest and keep a
dally record of eggs laid. It Is not al
ways tho fault of the feed and care
that they don't do better. It Is the
misfortune of the ben herself very
often; she couldn't lay If she want
"It requires considerable, tlmo to
keep a trap nest record of a Hock of
hens. iJot every farmer bas the time,
but If a few farmers In every county
would trap-nest a llock of bens, In a
few jenrs all th farmers of the coun
ty would very likely have stock that
wero from hcavy-lalng, trap-nested
' fow Is.
"Tho Oregon experiment station Is
trap nesting a large flock each year
and it is doing tho bcBt It can to fur
nish tbo farmers of that stato with
stock from good lajers, with tho ob
ject of Increasing ihe egg )leld In the
state. It Is desirable, of course, to
keep a full j ear's rocord for each hen,
but if that Is not possible, n record
for a part of tho year would bo alu
able. For Instance, a record of the
llrst six months of lalng, beginning
probably In November, would show
which wero tho good winter produ

Closer Fowls Are Confined, If Allowetf
Sufficient Room for Exercise,
Better They Are.
A goose that is being fattened foi
market should never bo permitted tc
hwlm lu the water or to wander an
distance Tho closer they aro con
fined, as long as they havo n pen fot
sufficient exercise, tho better table
poultry they make. To keep thorn
clean while bolng fattened, cover the
floor of tho building In which they
stay nt night with a thick covering oi
straw. Ilcmovo this in tho morning
with n pitchfork, either into tho ait
or sunlight where it will dry. Thor
oughly tempo tho floor, and cover It
with dry sand or earth; as night ap
proaches throw down the bedding
again, nnd In this way they can be
kept perfectly clean, and under these
conditions the) will Improve much
When tho time comes for selling
them, the geese should bo confined If
a limited space, provided with a
building for shelter only, plenty of
water to drink, and bo fed nil they
will cat of a dry mash triad, of one
half cormneal, ono-fourth bran and
middlings, the balance of gnaund oats
Pair of White China Geese.
This is best mixed with boiled milk,
buttermilk, sour milk or skim milk,
which, when thoroughly cooked, can
bo mixed Into the meals to make the
dry roash, and fed In boxes or troughs
onco or twlco of day. In addition to
this, a small amount of green food,
tho best of rye, clover or grass, may
be provided with good results.
GANAHA WINS AGAIN
This Time at the International
Soil Products in Oklahoma.
I.ABt enr nnd tho jear before, and
the jear before that, the farm prod
ucts of Western Canada carried off
first premiums, championships nnd
honours, together with medals and di
plomas, feats that wero likely to glvo

In tho United States; another farmer
of Manltobn won championships and

Chicago, and this year expects to du

l'liese winnings nro tho more credlta
bio as none of the cattle were ever fed
any corn, but raised and fattened on
nature grasses nnd small grains.
At the Dry Farming Congress held
at I.cthbrldgo In 1912, Alberta and
Saskatchewan, farmers carried off
tho principal prl7es competing with
the world. The most recent winnings
of Canada hnvo been mado nt Tuba,
Oklahoma, whero seven of the eigh
teen sweepstakes rewards t tho In
ternational Soil Products Imposition
were tnkon by Canada in competition
with eleven states.
Tho chief prl7e, a thrashing ma

bushel of hard wheat, went to Peter
Gerlack of Allan, Saskatchewan Mon
tana took four of tho sweepstakes,
Oklahoma four, nnd Nebraska two.

had two, Ilelgium three, China four,
Canada fifty, .Mexico five, Norway one,
In tho district In which the wheat
was grown that won this prize, thero
were thousand-) of acres this jear that
would have done as well. Mr Gerlack
la to be congratulated ns well as tho
Prolnco of Saskatchewan, and West
ern Canada as n whole, for the great
success that has been nchlcved In
both grain and cattle Advertisement.
Watch Growing Children,
I noticed In ono of tho magazines
tho other dny a strong nnd sensible
plea to mothers to pay more atten
tion to the phslcnl pecullaritks of
growing children. For Itihtance, a
child ought to bo shown the Impor
tance of breathing through tho noso
Instead of tho mouth. Breathing
through tho mouth Is not only un
healthful but It spoils thu nppearanco
of tho face. Tho child ought to bo
natural In conduct. Grimaces tire
something that mothers bhould dis
courage. Thero aro nlto many bad
habits In sitting, standing and walking
which the fond mother can correct by
a little watchfulness.
