Care of Growing Turkeys.
The demand for eggs last soanon
was unusually great, and as the or
ders came In until very late I deter
mined not to set a single egg at home.
The old hens, however, determined
otherwisc,and persisted in laying and
attempting to sit, until wearied by
their pertinacity I was obliged to let
them have their way. . So about the
7th of July two or three of them
came off with 37 little poults.the live
liest little things I ever saw, "peep-,
ing" to each other as cheerfully as
though somebody wanted them; and
so determined were they to live and
make the best of things, that in spite
of my resolution to the contrary I
could not but become interested. They
grew and throve like magic, and
would now all doubtless be alive had
not Sally, the stupidest little helper I
ever had, killed one of them one day
in attempting to house the brood be
fore a shower that never came.
As the turkeys were hatched so late
in the season, I fed them more liber
ally than usual in order to ' push
them on as fast as possible, allowing
them three meals a day so long as
they kept near enough to the house
to be accessible at midday. After
tbey were old enough to take a wide
range they were fed twice daily,
having a generous breakfast and sup
per of bread and milk with some sort
of dry grain as dessert. This ration
was continued until the turkeys were
about four months of age, when, as
they seemed to prefer the grain, once
a day only, in the morning, were
they given soft food. This now con
sists of boiled cracked corn or stale
bread moistened with sweet milk
and the whole made stiff with one
third wheat bran. If the sweet milk
be heated to the boiling point they
cannot devour tho mess last enough,
for there is no flavor more delicious
to a turkey's palate than that of boil
ed milk. As a grain food they are
very partial to sorghum seed, and
I have never had any bad results fol
low its liberal use. And once a day
after the frost comes,they should have
some sort of green food, as cabbage,
turnips or specked apples, of which
they can manage a large quantity
without detriment, or rather to the
improvement of their health. If I
want to make them perfectly happy
on a chilly morning when the ground
is white with irost, L give them a
troughful of porridge made of sweet
skimmed milk boiled and thickened
with fine corn meal. This is so very
much to their taste that their morn
lug meal must be offered first, else it
will be left untouched.
After four months of age, growing
turkeys may be allowed all the corn,
wheat or oats, (equal quantities of
each being preferred,) that they will
pick up with avidity twice daily; but
they should bo compelled between
times to take a widge range and gath
er for themselves that variety of pree.i
food and "roughness" without which
they cannot be healthy.
The severe frosts have, I know, de
stroyed ail tender vegetation, but in
their rambles over the pastures and
grass lots the flock will be able to
find tender blades of graas and clover
of which they are especially fond,
' sufficient for their needs. Unlike
chickens, turkeys thrive best when
deprived of meat, being allowed in
stead an unlimited quantity of butter
milk or clabber.
At this age the young turkeys are
growing tall very rapidly; the gob
blers, in fact, look as though they
might be on stilts, being mostly on
legs. Their appetite is simply insa
tiable, prompting them to make way
with a large quantity, as well as a
great variety of food; for being busily
engaged in making bone, muscle,
nesn anu learners, an at the same
time, a liberal supply of material
must be fetored away for selection.
Y hen properly cared for, I have
had turkeys of five months to weigh
the gobblers 19J, and the hens, 14
ids; ana at y or ten months of age
they weigh respectively, the gobblers
from 2y to 30 lbs., and the hens from
IG to 18 lbs.
During the moderately cool weath
er in the fall, turkeys eat more and
make more rapid development than
they do after the winter weather sets
in, and the best results are obtained
from having them hatched early
enough to allow them the benefit of
the fall season at the age of their
most rapid growth. It pays too, I
think, to feed them liberally at . thi3
time, though many of my neighbors
argue that it is a great waste to feed
half-grown turkeys at all. "The tur
keys can forage for themselves," they
ay, "and make their own livin"."
So they can, it Is true, but I " notice
that it is very difficult t pursuade
such flocks to come home at night to
roost, that the birds are always thin
in flesh and bring, an inferior price
when marketed, and that in size they
hteadily deteriorate from year to
year. It is only after the Bronze tur
key has urrived at maturity, that its
owner can afford to put it upon hort
rations, then a somewhat scint al
lowance is Hlmost necessary, to pre
vent the accumulation of superfluous
flesh. A moderate diet keeps the
bird active and healthy, its body
round and symmetrical, and gives to
its plumago those brilliant irridescent
and bronzy hues which have given
to the Bronze turkey its distinctive

What The Farmer's "Knock Out"
Furm, Stock and Home,
There was a party in the United
States (it went into the hands of a re
ceiver last November) that passed a
law that all the people should be tax
ed on everything they ued, in order
that infant industries might be built
ut in this country. In return for
this special privilege we were assured
that the "infants" would at some
future time pay it all back in a
home market and enhanced wages to
American workmen. They ran the
Government on this basis until they
got control of most of the money and
all the fools, and then they changed
their programme, decided to put a
wall around the country and do all
our business lor us on their own
terms. Brother Chadbourno and
good many others objected to this
scheme and went to work to knock
it out, which was quite effectually
done last fall.' By that knock out
we said : Gentlemen, we are very
glad to have you do business in this
country, but we want it to be a busi
ness that pays as it goes. We don't
propose to wait until 1990 for the

says: The jews that are crowding to

are using it as the common medium
of intercourse in daily life. There
are now two newspapers in Hebrew
punustied in Jerusalem. They are
circulated all over Syria, and, indee
throughout the Jewish world. They
narrate all events transpiring in the

The legend of the mistletoe is an
inheritance from the religion of the
Druids. The cathedral arches under
which tho Celts worshipped were the
spreading branch of the oak, the roof
a dense foliage of greenery, and the
mistletoe, the mystical parasite of the
tree, was a symbol full of meaning,
for it was believed to renew its
life by some agency differing from
that which propagated all other
plants, and to exist by a divine pow
er. Here, under the oak, the favorite
tree of the Celtic sun-god, at the pe
riod of the winter-solstice, priests and
people sacrificed white bulls and hu-
limn uaiins, ine mistletoe was
gatnerea and dispensed in small
eprays, to be hung by the worshippers
over their doors, as amulets against
