FEW LESSONS WITH TURKEYS
Breeder of Twenty-Two Years' Expe
' rience Finds Business More Profit
able Each Year.
I have raised turkeys for sale 22
years, and find it a more profitable
business each year, says a writer In
the Farm and Fireside.
I have hud to learn many lessons
by quite an expensive route. One
year I failed entirely by too close In
breeding. Another year I let my tur
keys wander at their own will and
roost whero they pleased. Again I
allowed some to go up In the trees
a hard storm blew them out and
drowned 21 beauties. Since these les
sons I have worked differently.
I change, either breeding hens or
toms every other year. I usually bur
a thoroughbred bronze from some un
related flock. I keep old hens for
breeders, and find their poults more
healthy. One early turkey Is more
profitable than three late ones, so I
use the first eggs and sell the later
ones. Chicken hens are set on the
first laying and the poultry given to
the first turkey hen that becomes
broody. Largo, airy pens or coops
with rainproof roofs are built quite
a distance from the house.
The hens are kept up two weeks,
and then turned out every morning,
unless the weather becomes rainy.
They have learned to come when call
ed, and will answer me from ever so
far when I call "Pee turk! Come on!"
I am never too busy or too tired to
get them up at the approach of a
hard storm, and at four o'clock in the
evening. They soon learn to come
home. After they are five or six
weeks old I never feed at noon.
I feed no sloppy feed, but have good
luck with wheat or corn bread, crack
ed corn, cooked soft, wheat, mashed
The first two weeks are the most
particular. I give each poult a grain
of black pepper when It Is 21 hours
old, and a stroke of lard or vaseline
from bill to top of head.
Then a feed of hard-boiled egg, shell
and all, crushed fine, mixed with
bread soaked soft and squeezed dry.
Fresh water, sand, lime and ground
charcoal are kept handy. They eat
of all; I never feed too much. - I
never fee-i aver tour limes a ear,
and that often only a week. More
turkeys die from overfeeding than un
derfeeding. I use a flat board to
sprinkle their feed on, and keep It
clean. It pays to be cleanly with tur

WORLD'S GREATEST CANDLE
A giant candle, mado In Harlem, N.
T., and destined for St. Peters, at
Rome, was blesesd before the altar
of St Rlaglo by the Pope and will
bt.rn without drip for six long years.
Standing over 11 feet high, weighing
over 200 pounds, and costing nearly
$1,000, the candle is made or sweet
smelling beeswax, dipped with 200 dip-
lngs about a marvelous wick. From
within a foot of the top to a foot ol
the bottom It Is embossed In gold.
The centerpiece, of cunningly wrought
gold and delicately carved wax, shows
lilies of the valley and a lovely sacred
picture. The manufacturer will not
tell the name of the person who or
dered the candle, saying:
"When one has prayed 1 long and
ceaselessly to th saints for health he
does not parade his generous attitude.
He lays what he has upon the altar
and goes silently on his way."
St Ittaglo Is the patron saint ol
those who suffer from disease of the
throat. It is the tradition that be
miraculously cured a little girl of
throat disease while on his way to
martyrdom In the early days of the
GIANTS OF THE FOREST
Australia lays claim to growing the
talles trees in the world, whilst Cali
fornia trees are noted for their girth
and diameter. The tallest Callfornlan
forest giant discovered was found
by actual measurement to be 340 feet
high. Hut Australia's record gum treo
beats this by 140 feet. Raroa Mueller,
who was formerly government botan
ist in Victoria, said that the Austral-
Ian gum trees attained a height of
600 feet, but the tallest that the baron
ever mcisured was a prostrate one
on the Rlack Spur, ten miles from
Healesville, which was 480 feet high.
This tree was SI feet In girth near its
root In 18S9 a civil engineer, jour
neying from Gippuland to Mount Rore,
measured a tree 471 feet In height,
though tho same tree had previously
been estimated at not less than 500

FISH FROM THE NORTH SEA
The North sea Is Great Britain's
most profitable fishing ground. Last
year the value of the fish landed on
the n ortheaBt coast was 3,740,614.
over a third of the total value of the
fish landed In the whole of England
and Wales, and 100,000 worth more
than was landed In the whole of Ccot
land and Ireland combined during the
