To the average person the American
ben is a very insignificant factor in the
business world. We are sorry to make
the following statement, but neverthe
less ft is true that quite often we hear
farmers remark that "there is no money'
in chickens, .but it is employment for
the wtnian folks." If the poultry was
eliminated from the farms, not only
would the breakfast be served without
coffee, and the many other luxurhs and
necessities of the household be found
wanting, but the bankruptcy uttorney
would find it nt-ceeaary to increase his of
fice force to attend to his enormous busi
ngs. Did you, as a f irrrn r, over stop to think
that eggs are refined wheat, oats, corn,
graes, etc, and they contain much that
on the farm (without the hen) would go
to waste? la the Winter a basket of fifty
dozen will bring more money thdn a load
of bay, which took a largo patch of ground
to grow, a team to cut, a horse and man
to rake, two men to stack, and a te,am
and, wagon to take it to market. Statis
tics tell ub that the American hen earn
ed $200,600,000 during the year 1900
enough money to buy all the gold and
silver mined, and in addition all the wool
clips, potatoes, rye and barley produced
that year. Thus you see she has given
an excellent account of hersolf.
The man who falsely accuses the hen
of being non-profitable, if accompanied
home, you would not wonder at his adser-

canopy cf heaven. In tho davtime they
quench their thirst by eating snow or
drinking water from a frozen cow'd track
in the barn yerJ. Their food is" just
what they find, and this is usually corn.
Is it any wonder, under thp circum
stances, that the hen is branded as nou
profitable? Chemical analysis ( f corn and eggs do
not compare favorably. Consequently
corn is not a rich egg producer. Oats is
tbe richest food we have in egg produc
ing properties; hence should bo our
principal food. Wheat is second on the
list. All grain fed to poultry should be
thrown in litters, so es to induce exer
cise, for next to food this is tbe impor
tant factor. A, good system of feed, and
ono used by some of tho largest poultry
farmers, is as follows ; O.ita in the morn
ing, wheat at noon and corn in evening.
A mash compoEod of equal parts of corn
meal and wheat bran, fed three or four
times per week, of mornings. Grit, duBt

With bated breath and nwe-flllod eyes. I gazed

Watching with me tbe angel's silvery (light
Straight ou Into tbe glory lhatoulblazod
From gates ajar to let him pass ; all dnzed
And shaken by tbe wondrous sound and sight.

Whoso holy lips my simple life had praised?

I took my alabaster box of rare ,
And fragrant spikenard as Ho sat at meat,
And poured it out upon his tired feet
Then wiped them tenderly with my long hair.
Ono who, wI'U dark, derisive face, sat there,

Aud Martha, deeming my hasty act unmeet,
Frowned on me, pausing 'mid her household care-
But He 1 He turned bis sweet, benignant gaze
Upon pie where 1 knelt, and other' praise
Or blame was naught, -lie spaku words strange
Which heavy with dark portent seemed to fall;
I! ut 'raid my fears I was so glad, ko glad,
Because I loved Him and had given my all,
Ho was not there! my last, lorn hone was dead.
I badso longed with nardand balm and myrrh,

Of blood and thorn-stains from the loved head ;
But lie was gone I I stood uncomforted,
Blind with my grief, outside tbe sepulchre,
Aud seemed to bear the silken, skyward wbir
Of those strange visitants who watched bis bed.
When, lo J a Voice from out tbe dewy gloom
Said tenderly: "Woman, why wee pest thou 7"
