Good Blood in Ptultry Yard Is Not a
Mere Whim, But a Money-Maker.
Breeding stock should be accus
tomed to their tpiarters before Iho
breeding season opens. Those of our
readers who have made up their mind3
to dispose of their old cocks should
gi't them out of the way and replace
them with new ones without much
delay. The old ones will never ta.ite
much better than right now. A tough
old bird can be made very palatable
if put into a stew and cooked slowly
long enough. If tho old onej are not
out of the way before the new ones
arrive, the old ones will haik uion the
new ones as intruders, and fights will
result than can s-. rve no fcood end.
If the new arrivals find no opponents
llicy will accommodate themselves to
conditions very quickly, and the flock
will be reaily to get results by the.
lime eggs aro wanted for hatching.
Time ran bo no doubt about it, no
doubt that those who are reading
progressive farm pspt-rj will want to
improve their (locks. If they flo not
this year, they will next or the year
after. This thing of having good blood
is no mere idle whim. It Is a money
making proposition. Tho sooner gotul
blood la got into the flock, the sooner
will more pride be taken in the busi
ness and more profits taken out of
I he business.
It requires so much money to stork
up on both males and females for tho
larger clashes of live stock that most
farmers feel I bey can not afford it;
but this is not the case with poultry.
A good male and a small number of
females can be got at a small outlay.
If there are no other males on tne
place tho new male tan be used with
the whole flock. This will give a few
s'andard bred birds and nnny other
that are not standard bred. If one tic

for poultry on the farm should not hn

Where possible, the poultry raiser
should begin at the top every time
that is, start with standard bred fowls
lu every case by using standard bred
breeders of both sexes. If ibis can

In the flock in twelve months will bo
enough to make anyone proud. The
second year the offspring will look
so much like the'r standard bred an
cestors that it will begin to be hard
to tell the birds cf mixed breeding
from those that are standard bred.
When a flock reaches this degree of
excellence, it begins to be a very prac
tical fovl for tho farmer whose chief
aim is to get a reasonable number of
epgs and nice carcasses for selling
and to have every lot of eggs and
bird J maiketcd grade evenly and con
sequently make that pleasant Impres
sion on the eye that makes good sales.
It so happens that after a poultry
man starts with one breed of fowls
he concludes he ought to get new
blood by crossing with some other
bieod. Such vKiK-nt crosses arc un
fortunate, since a common result is
that the offspring do not develop the
gcod qualities of their immediate an
cestors uo much as they do their bad
qualities. The o.fsprin? looks too
ni'uh like mongrels. Always get new

Tl'e experience of practical breed

these principles are correct that there
Is no use in listening to the free ad
ice given by some oue who is ttnatile
to tell whether a fowl Is standard
fcrtvl or not. Wide experience and
many cbservations aro necessary to
formulate rules for breeding, and it
is tafer to folio the advice of those
who have attained great success than
it is to follow the advice of some one
who has really never accomplished

surest way to do this is to do better

Yoa may wonder why Cardui Is so successful, after
ether remedies have foiled. The answer Is that Cardui is
siiccessM, bcccu:r.e it is composed of scientific ingredients,
that act curativciy on the womanly cystem. It is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It buiids, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take CarduL It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druggists.
