Almost every housewife who is
compelled to buy eggs constantly
clamors for Pome method which she
may pursue in order to always get
fresh cess. There Is no housewife
who hes not romc time or other had
the great displeasure of handling spoil
ed or rotten epps. This almost con
stant occurrence, with the possible
exception of the winter months, prac
tically comM'li those who lecture and
carry on experiment station work to
plead with the farmers who produce
the eggs to put onto tho market bet
The egg loss each year is enormous
and ia beyond all reasonable justifica
tion, and the blame lift, at least In
part, with the farmer for the following
First, some few farmers deliberate
ly take to market e: which they
know are not fresh, because they know
Eggs Should Be Packed in Neat Cases.
that the merchant is compelled to take
them or lose their trade. Second, and
by far the greatest reason, is because
of ignorance on the part of the farm
er aa'to what and how to sell eggs.
When the bens on the farm are
- producing enough eggs to warrant the
fs'-w'a taking them to town, ar-j--u.ri
A abould be innde to handle
'J t f ti em properly. A conrenleiit
ani wn place should be provided
wherein the bena can lay. The naU
oral tendency of a ben U to go off
In the weeds and make her nest. This
should not be tolerated and any eggs
found in auch placet should be marked
and kept at home.
When the cienn, fresh ess ere
bathered they should be put in a
clean, dry, cool place until marketed.
Kven though the place is clean and
cool. If It la not dry, molds, etc., will
commence development and the eggs
w ill soon spoil. If the eggs become
damp and they happen to be in con
tact with acy colored material they
will Immediately become stained.
Good egg caret in a cool, dry, clean
place, kept up off of the floor, make
an excellent receptacle in which to
keep egga previous to marketing.
Before these eggs are set aside for
market, they chould be gone over by
the farmer as he collects them, and
ell small, atalned, dirty, doubtful, in
cubator and rotten egga should be
removed. Small and dirty eggs, If
uaed immediately, are just aa good at
large clear onea, but they will not
sell well on the market, and if sent
in with good eggs will spoil the trade.
Therefore, they should be kept and
used at dotno. No egga should be
washed, for the packers claim they
will not keep well. All eggs from
stolen nests, whose freshness is doubt
ful, and all Incubator eggs should
either be thrown away, boiled for the
little chicks or used at home. They
should never be sent to market. Rot
ten eggs need not be discussed. Any
person who will aend one to market
deserves all the penalty possible from
tbe pure-food taw.
When egga have been properly
gathered, handled and kept previous
to taking to market, the question
of the number of trips to town should
be considered. In hot weather the
egga should bo marketed two or three
timet per week, and oftener If pos
sible. If that number of trips cannot
be made, co-operate with a neighbor
and have him alternate days in the
trlpa which must be made.
In the fall and spring eggs should
be marketed at least once a week.
Many buyers have bad trouble in No
vember with eggs classed aa "held
egga." These are common, because
nioat farmers believe that after frost
eggs will not rot so quickly, but never
theless they do evaporate and the air
cells in them show tbe candler that
they are stale.
.Therefore, the more often eggs are
marketed, the greater are the chances
that they will be good.
Make-Up of Broilers.
A broiler (should have a good, plump

GOOD ROAD WOKE UP COUNTY
Single Stretch of Really Improved
Highway Aroused People to Need
of More Improvements.
The following interesting story of
how a single stretch of really good
road has waked up an entire county
lo Its need of better highways comes
from Kansas, anil was printed in the
t'hanute Tribune. It begins: One
f,od, county built road has done
more, said a farmer recently, "to put
Chautauqua county on the map than
all township-built road a have done in
ten years." The road he referred to
was built last fait and early this spring
by the county commissioners under
the new county road law. It crosses
Chautauqua county from east to west.
Its benefits arc just beginning to bo
fully realized. One day recently mo
tor cars from Oklahoma City. Fort
Worth, Joplin. Ordway, Colo., ColTey
ville and Independence were at t'ha
nute at the same time.
The good road Is bringing hundreds
of tourists through Chautauqua coun
ty who otherwise would never have
seen the county. As a result realty
men report a larger number of for
eign Inquiries about lands there than
ever before. The farmers are begin
ning to see the benefit of having out
side people through the county and
are becoming good road enthusiasts.
Chautauqua was one of the first
countiea In the state to take advan
tage of tbe new county road law,
which permits a tax levy not exceed
ing one mill for road purposes. That
money Is spent by the county com
missioners. Its great advantage lies
in making it possible for the county
to get roads across townships which
otherwise would not build them. Un
der the old system one township
board would build a good road to the
township line and the board In tho
next township would do iu'-.. as it
pleased about Join' " .con
tinuation of tbe w ... ..ally .
did not join, and the result was a
patchwork of disconnected highways.
Now, with the county board in control
long roads can be built and township
jealousies are obviated.
tast year the county commissioners
levied a one-mill tax and raised $13.
f 00. That was all used on the cross
county road. All wooden bridges and
culverts were replaced with cement
and stone. Much permanent work
was done. The road today is even
better than it was when it was built.
This year another one-mill tax was
levied and the same sum as last year
will be raised. The work will be
done in other parts of the county this
Tbe farmers also club together and
build good roads to join tbe county
roads. A neighborhood four or five
miles back from the main road will
join forces, set a day or a week and
fix the road leading to the good road,
and thus the good road system Is
spreading over the county. It is
planned to make the third tax levy
next year. ISy that time every one of
the twelve townships In this county
will have received an equal share of
the county money and have good
roads leading in at least two direc
tions across the township.
For a time there was much opposi
tion to the county levy. Mass meet
ings were held in the townships not
receiving any of the first year's levy
and the tax was denounced. Petitions
were signed asking the commissioners
not to make the levy this year. But
that waa last January. When tbe
board made the levy this month there
was not a protest. Those who opposed
the tax at first have been converted
after using a good road for seven or
STONE ROADS ARE NEGLECTED
Thoroughfares Not Made Wide
Enough, Nor Substantial In Placet
Much Care It Needed.
"There are a great many people go
ing to be disappointed with stone
road, and a lot of money wasted,"
said Frank Van Natta of Benton
county, Indiana, the other day. "In
the first place they are not making
the roads wide enough nor substantial
enough in some places, and not taking
care of them in others where they are
already built. Some people seem to
think that after a stone road Is made
it needs more attention. This Is a
mistake, for It Is wearing down all
the time. Whenever a rut appears It
should be filled. Some means should
be devised to keep the surface of the
road smooth. In many cases the wag
on tracks have worn several inches
deep. Water stands in these and In
jures the road. The road drag might
be used to good advantage to keep
these tracks tilled. It would also help
if people using the road would be
enough interested to drive all over
it Instead of In the track inado by
those ahead. We need to hare a
man to take care of stone roada like
the section men do tho railroads.
They da this iu sjme eastern states.
We must con e to it if we expect lo

CARING FOR BREEDING EWES
Greatest Certainty of Impregnation Is
Attained When Animal Is In
creasing In Flesh.
The relation between the nature of
he lamb crop and the management of
lie ewes nt the time of mating Is
lexer than Is usually supposed, says
sheep grower In the Iowa Hoine
ftead. When the ewes are overfat nt
mch a time, or when they are on paa
ures dry and dead, impregnation W
ess certain than when the opposite
conditions prevail. When the ewes
ire failing In flesh at such a time It
Jocoines even less certain.
Tho greatest certainty in breeding
a attained when the ewes are Increas
ing in flesh. The renovating Influ
ence which at such time comes to tht
system extends to the generative or
gans, and this adds not only to the
:ertainty of conception, but It tends
to hasten the time of breeding.
When the lambs are weaned tho
?wea are usually thin In flesh. The
better their milking properties the
thinner they are likely to he. because
af tho amount of daily ration that has
bet n converted Into milk. If the ewes
ire then put upon succulent pastures
hey at once begin to regain the flesh
that has been lost. It ia when they
ire thus building up the system that
the breeding season comes on. The
relation between the quickness or
slowness with which It comes Is de
pendent on the character of th food.
Tho richer It Is in proper elements of
nutrition the sooner will the ewes
ome In heat.
t'sually the uncertainty in breeding
Is greater with ewes one year old that
have never produced lambs than with
those that are older. This is owing to
the fact, chiefly, that such ewes are
liable to carry much flesh, especially
If they have been fed on nourishing
pastures all through the season. The
. '. IV r-.se would be to con
i r -' ! : . ires succulent and a

force them to do much traveling.
The aim should be to have the' ewes
In good condition at the time for mat
ing. Where they are not they do not
produce as many lambs, nor is It like
ly that the Iambs will be eo strong
The ewes require more food aleo to
carry them properly through the win
ter. It ia an easy matter to lay flesh
cn a ewe before she ia pregnant than
subsequently, when a part of the food
is used in sustaining the fetus.

Already the sailors' hands were on
