RAISING TURKEYS IN VISIlMOVr.
A Wolcott farmer's wife writes the
FREE PRESS In answer to the ques
tion, recently asked in this paper, why
Vermonters do not i;,so more tur
keys? Sho says:
The turkey crop ) very uncertain.
Tho turkey does not lav eggs like a
hen, tho year around, but simply to
raise her brood. If you aio lucky
enough to llnd her nest before sho be
gins setting you can take the eggs
and set a hen with them and let the
mother turkey try again. But usually
they aro not early enough to get a
larKe growth at Thanksgiving time, as
tho turkey pets 2S days to hatch,
the eggs At first the little turkeys
require caro and pioper feeding, and
not allowed to run In tho wet. They
are dulicate at this stage and a good
many die. Some people sre mom suc
cessful than others with them. They
require a large range, and, later, hav
ing been derived from the wild tur
key, they are as likely to roost In
trees us anywhere. If the farmer has
children who can bring them to their
pen nt nUht It might savo loss, and
still later, with Thanksgiving In sight,
If the foxes do not get what remains
there will bo a few to sell. So tho
consumer can seo that oternnl vlgll-
unco Is tho prlco of tho fcstlvo bird.
Our correspondent has evidently had
some experience In the matter and her
reasons aro. In a way, conclusive. On
tho other hand, In the "good old days,"
and not so very many years ago, eith
er, when turkeys were selling at 20
cents a pound, there was no such
scarcity as thcie had boon of late
yenrs, with tho prlte hovering around
the 30-ccnt mark. Is It possible that
tho festive bird Is becoming nioro
nomadlo In his habits nnd of nioro
delicate constitution, or Is It, rathor,
because fewer poopl aio willing to
devote tho time and attention requir
ed of a successful turkey raiser?
Tho supply of tut keys nt the last
holiday season was shorter than ever
boforo nnd tho price whlcli dealors
wV-To willing to pay was therefore
unusually high, At least ono of tho
leading Burlington meat dealers was
uuablo to got enough to supply his
local trndo and he could have shipped
to the New York and Boston markets
all and more than he Bold in this city,
at a considerably higher price thnn he
obtained here, which was not loss than
SO cents per pound for the finest birds,
Many things combined to mako last
yesr a srood year for the raising of
poultry and tho comparatively few
who engaged In the buslntss undoubt-
edly realized enough so that they f It
well repaid for their work.
As Is announced In our telegtaphlc
columns this morning, the Vermont
delug.itlon In Congress mot Saturday
afternoon In their tlnal session for the
consideration of tho Vermont rnllec
torshlps. They adopted a resolution
against a change In either district,
and 'litter unanimously recommended
tho reappointment of (. S. ISmery as
collector of customs for the district of
Memphremagog nnd C. H. Darling as
collector of customs for tho district of
Inasmuch ns no contest developed
on tho cast side, the whole Issue on
tho west side hinged first on the ques.
tlon whether n change could be made
In ono dlntrlrt without disturbing the
other, Independent of the considera
tion of candUUolfs. .Some of the
members of the delegation ft It that
they could not thus safely discrim
inate, ven thong:, they might favor
the adoption of a four years limit In
this district on goneral principles, and
tinder these conditions the adoption
of the reaolutlott i gainst it change In
either district was Inevitable,
The spirited canvass made In the
Vermont district was not anticipated
at the outset, and It was precipitated
by one of thoso unaccountable combl
ni'ttoiiH of circumstances, always In
teresting, but which need not be nar
rated at tbfe time. Suffice to say the
faithfulness n:ii". efficiency of the pres
ent Incumbent was never for a mo
ment questioned, tho entire point at
Issue being whether u pronounced sen
timent In favor of limiting tho Incum
bency of the ofllce In this district
should tvo Into effect at this time
In cao of n change In policy, one
of tho candidates stated he could not
reasonably do otherwise than pledge
himself that In tho event of his pie
feniietit he would not ask fnr u reap
pointment at the end of four yen is.
He adopted this platfotm In recogni
tion of conditions prevailing In this
State. Vermont has so few offices of
great emolument that they should not
be bundled or monopolised.
Moreover tbeie are constantly com
ing forwaid deserving men of ability
and efficiency, especially younger re
publicans, who are entitled to recog
nition, and where several men can per
form equally effective service, good
citizenship as well as party Interests
are promoted by Impartial preferment.
Even the governorship of Vermont Is
limited to one term by rigid precedent.
The grent majority of the newspa
pers In thl district commenting on
the subject 'favored the adoption of
the four years' limit fut the collector
ship Itself nnd tho sentiment of the
district Individually expressed on the
abstract question was generally rec
ognized ns largely favoring the same.
1'nder these circumstances the cam
paign waged was not without Its use,
fnr It Is safe to say there will here
after be u more pronounced disposi
tion to dlstilbnte political honors, when
the quality of the service will not be
adversely nffected by such a policy.
We are glad to say that the spirited
canvass, much of which did not appear
on the surface, was concluded with
out Inipaiinient of warm personal
It lennsinps among the candidates. So
far as we know thole are no scars;
mi heart-burnings, im the contrary
we heartily rongralul Jte both Collec
lor Hailing nnd Collector Emery on
their leappiplntinent. It Is marked
evidence nf Collector Darling's
strength In particular that he was able
to survive the powerful sentiment In
favor of a four years' limit in this
Indeed we 'an go further and slate
inngnaninioii'ly thnt some of Judge
Iiarllng'H supporters have .tlie.uly said
the splendid showing he made will
cause him to loom up as a possible
national legislator wh'n an opening
in the the Vermont delegation In Con
gross presents Itself.
It has also been predicted that the
reappointment of the present collector
In this distilct would be followed by
the prompt candidacy and subsequent
nomination of H former collector of
the same district for the governorship

fulfilled will appear Inter on

'1 bo weather Is always nn Interest
lug topic for discussion, perhaps be
rnuso our moods, arid even our happl
riess, are so largely governed by Its
character. We In Vermont are prona
to complain about the long, cold win
ters, but evidence) Is not wonting;
that those of rugged constitution, who
hnvo grown tip with the regular pro
rosslim of the seasons, need the
change from warm to cold and vice
versa, The chnnges seem to act as
tonic, which Is better, cheaper and
more lasting In Its effects that any
medicine. While a temperature of 80
degree.t In southern Florida has an al
luring pound, It has an enervating ef
fect on many who are not accustomed
Jhn United States weather bureau
has Just published a nummary of tho
ollmatological data for the eountry, by
sections. The New England States,
exclusive of Maine, constitute section
ion, nnd somn conclusions reached by
the experts are of Interest.
Tho climate of this section Is deter
mined chlofly by the passage over or
near to It of the areas of high and low
barometrlo pressure, and the charea
ter of the dally changes In the several
elements of temperature, precipitation,
sunshine and wind force Is dependent
on the strength, rate of movement,
and path of travel of these anti-cyclones
and cyclones. Thesi pressure
areas pass over or within the vleln-
lly of the section on n nverago of
one In each three to f"lr ,nya
through the several seasons. They
are, however, with occassional excep
tions, much more pronounced during
the winter months than at other sea
sons of the year. The hlRhs are us
ually attended -'by fslr weather nnd
lower temperatures, while Iho lows
are accompanied with unsettled westh
er, often with local or general prertpl-
tntlon, higher temperatures, and winds
of moderate to galo force, depending
on the Intensity of the storm.
On account of the geographical lo
cation of tho section, there Is a mark
ed difference In the length of the sea
sons. Winter weather prevails through
a period of fire .to six months, nnd the
three seasons thnt embrace tho rest of
the yar are consequently short. Dur
ing Ihe winter months the minimum
temperatures range from 4 degrees, In
the Island of Marthas' Ineyard, to
40 degrees In the northern portions of
New Hninoshlre nnd Vermont. The
minimum temperature falls to 32 de
grces below, on nn nvernge over the
wholo section of 13.1 days yearly. The
range In the soveral States is rroin
108 days, In Rhode Island, to IJ5 days
In New Hampshire. There are warm
spells during the summer nnd fall
months during which the temperntitrei
roach '.i0 degrees, or above. In nearlv
all sections. The highest maximum
tempcratureB of record rango from St
degreos, at Nneitiicket Uland, to 1 'J 4
degross, at Provident e H I. MitKltnum
temperatures of 100 and 101 dejri'ees aru

the section. Tho annual average num
ber of days, whole section, with mavi
mum temperatures of 90 degrees, or
above. Is ft. The heated terms are,
therefore, of short duration, seldom
exceeding two to four successive days.
The annual mean temperature of the
section Is 4.7 degrees, and ranges
from t.3.2 degrees, In Vermont, to 40.0
degrees, In P.hode Island. The annual
means In Individual yenrs, entire sec
tlon, have ranged from 41.0 degrees
to 80.0 degrees.
Spring Is a brief season In all parts
of the section. The summers are lon
ger, well deflnded, and generally ox
cepttonally pleasant. The few wnrm
days that are experienced aro usually
followed by pleasantly cool nights,
In const sections tea breezes nip ut
most a dally feature of the weather of
the summer months. The autumns. If
possible, are often more enpoyable
than the summers, embracing, as they
do, much sunny weather, moderate
temperatures, and, at times, n few
weeks of the delightful weather con
ditions popularly known ns "Indian
Tho annual precipitation of the sec
tion Is 43 HO Inches, and varies from
90 Inches, In Veremont, to 49.00
Inches, In Uhoilp Island. The preclpl
tatlon l.i quite evenly distributed
through the several seasons. The
annual winter mean is 11,00 inches
and the summer mean 10. 'JO Inches,
and there sre no marked departures
from these amounts in the means of
spring nnd fall. A largo portion of
the annual precipitation Is In the
form of snow, and In northern sec
tions It Is nenrly wholly snow during
the winter months. The annual aver
snowfall of the section Is 67.
Inches, ranging In the several States
from 28.1 Inches, In Hhode Island, to
S2.U inches. In Vermont. The small

Early and late frosts ate an import
ant feature of the climate of portions
of the section. The average date of
the first killing frost In autumn raugos
from Heplember 10, In New Hampshire,
to November lii, at Hlock Island, H. 1
The eaillest date of killing frost In
autumn Is August 17, In Vermont. The
nveiage date of the last killing frost
In spring Is from April 26, In Hhode
Island, to May !3. In New Hampshire.
In off seasons frosts sufficiently severe
to kill tender vegetation have occuriod
In portions of the northeren sections
In sll of the summer months.
The average sunshine verles greatly
over the section. In some localities In
the northern portion the monthly
uverages In winter full to 31 per cent.
During the bummer months and often
Including Heptember, the percentage
ranges from 38 to 67 per cent. Thu
yearly average of sunshine, for the
entire section, Is about It per cent.
