ATTRACTIVE NESTS FOR HENS
Discarded Grocery Boxes, Such a
Uied for Soap or Condensed Milk,
May Be Used.
Nests that are attmctlre to hens
because of their privacy, sanitary as
to chartcter and convenient for the
gathering of eggs are the claim of
every one who keeps fowls either In
a limited number or on a large scale,
says a writer In the New York
Tribune Farmer. Various are the
nest arrangements employed by the
different poultrymen, and varied In
character must they continue .to be
to suit the requirements of the fowls
and the plan of the poultry house.
Hut no style of nest that la at all
practical can fall to be suggestive to
any poultryman who has not yet
solved the nest problem to bis liking.
The nests herewith described are In
tended to suggest rather than to In
vite exact Imitation.
A convenient style of nest Is shown
In Illustration No. 1. The nests are
arranged along the wall, with the
open sides Inward, space enough be
ing allowed at the ends to admit the
fowls. A hinged cover at the top
makes egg gathering a simple mat
ter. Those nests may be Improvised
from wooden boxes nailed together,
one side being removed and the
hinged cover hung over them. Sup
port Is furnished by four uprights
which raise the nests about one foot
above ground. The nest boxes should
be as smooth as possible, and painted
Inside and out.
Another convenient arrangement Is
the row of nests accessible to the
fowls from the inside of the building,
but projecting beyond its wall, and
having a hinged cover which may be
lifted from the ouaslde to permit
the gathering of eggs. If necessary a
padlock may be used to secure this
Style No. 2 Is preferrable to style
No. 2 In cold climates. The nests are
along the Inside wall, supported
above the ground and open at the
top. A slide In the wall allows the
gathering of eggs from outside. Gro
cery boxes, such as Eoap or con
densed milk boxes, may serve for the
neetE, being so divided that two nests
are formed from one box. They
should be movable so that they may
be retdlly cleaned.
FRESH-AIR HOUSES FOR EGGS
Excellent Results Secured by Leaving
Screen Door Open Wheat
Straw Used for Litter.
Some years ago. while trying to
make poultry pay on a small Bcale, I
tried the open-air house. By making
a screen door at one end and leaving
this open day and night I secured
twice as many eggs as In my other
houses not so provided, says a writer
In an exchange. Now that I am keep
ing fowls on a lower scale I always
use some kind of fresh air house with
good results. Wheat straw is spread
In the chicken house to the depth of
bIx Inches. In this the feed is scat,
tered, oats, wheat, barley sorghum
seed, etc., for morning and noon feeds.
The evening meal consists of a mash
of boiled potatoes thickened with
bran, beef meal, a little ground oats
and cornmeal slightly salted. After
the fowls have eaten all they want I
feed ear corn for a finish. Reef scrap,
charcoal, grit and oyster shell are con
stantly before them. The straw is
cleaned out every day and replaced
with fresh the next morning. If the
weather is bad and the fowls have to
stay In doors, I replace twice a day.
I have no trouble In getting eggs In
winter from bred-to-lay white leghorn
and white Wyandotte fowlB. Both va
rieties are good.
For the fancy white egg trade the
requirements are freshness Indicated
by almost perfect fullness of the shell
and strong body uniformly large site
and chalk-white color. The most com
mon defects are shrinkage .and. In
summer, weak body and lack of size;
then many shippers let cream-tinted
eggs so la with the whites and this

DEVIL TAVERN STILL STANDS
PiAllc Howm That Wm Km Favorite
Revert of Ben Jensen and
At the present time it would be
difficult to discover a London tav
ern ever called by the name of "The
Devil." Bat in the eighteenth cen
tury 1 Fleet street, still in existence,
was so called.
"The Devil's Tavern" was so
called owing to the proximity of St
jDunsUn's church and the fond rec
ollection of an interlude between the
saint and the Evil One.
This was Ben Jonson's favorite
resort and here he presided over a
club of which he was the founder.
He wrote once:
"The first speech in my 'Catiline.
spoken to Scylla's ghost, was writ
after I had parted with my friends
at the Devil tavern; I had drunk
well that night and had brave no
tions." It was also the resort of Shadwell,
pillorized as Og by Dryden in his
"Absalom and Achitdphel."
Here the poets laureate used to
rehearse their birthday odes, so care
fully written with the minimum of
emotion in the Augustan Etyle, and
here Killigrew laid one of the scenes
in his "Parson's Wedding." .
Swift, in his "Journal to Stella,"
the human document of a passionate
being, mentions dining here with
Addison and Garth. Pope has em
balmed it in the amber of his classic
Here Goldsmith, in his prosperous
hours, played at cards, and in 1751
Dr. Johnson assembled his merry
and almost famous party to celebrate
the publication of the delightful
Mrs. Charlotte Lennox' first novel.

In the Grand Canyon the highest
sides are 6,233 feet above the stream,
but they are perpendicular for only
Foine 3,000 feet, when the gloomy
chasm is often bua a few hundreds
of feet wide. Above that the sides
slope off in a series of cliffs to the
level of the surrounding country, and
if the world lasts long enough and
a greater rainfall should come, a
deep and wide valley will exist there
some day. It would be folly to at
tempt to say when the erosion that
has made the canyon first set in. It
may have been as long ago as a mil
lion years. The exact time is' pure

"THE ALPHA AND OMEGA Of
Beginning with Lincoln and on down to Ted,
Forgiving the faults of those who are dead,
The young and the old and the low and the high,
Shall soon be forgotten and together shall die.
And they with the tariff and trusts shall fade,
Be scattered and lobt with the gold they have made,
So the Republicans shall go like the flower or weed,
That withers away that right may succeed.
And the Democrats shall come even those that we know.
To watch the last act of the Republican show,
In peace let them depart and never return,
And with the devil and his augels forever be burned.
Theirdown fall was predicted before the convention,
For between Teddy and Taft there was quite a contention,
And matters grew worse and they couldn't agree,
As to which would best serve as the trusts nominee.
For it was just as much Teddy as it was Mr. Taft,
They split up their party for political graft,
And it was well for the nation that they didn't agree,
Thelbest for our country that could possibly be.
It was then Mr. Bryan beholding contention,
Made ready to play at the Baltimore convention,
And while they were discussing which it should be,
Mr. Bryan made Wilson their nominee.
To this each member of the convention agreed,
And through Mr. Bryan did the party succeed,
The election was fixed for the fifth of November,
Which Teddy and Taft and the Trusts will remember.
So good-bye Col. Teddy and farewell Mr. Taft,
Good-bye all Republicans with your trusts and your graft,
May you vanish forever like a break in the wave,
Asjyoujpass from till power to your political grave.
