Poultry-Question Of Inmpor
Fvery one should have a nice
flock of chickens on the yard, one
breed preferable. The best way
to get this flock is to raise them
from good eggs which can be got
ten from reliable breeders.
It will be late for hatching after
this month, so anyone that ex
pects to raise good thrifty chicks
should get the eggs either in a
good incubator or under good old
mother hen at an early date.
Now for the care of the chicks.
It is an old time idea that chicks
should be fed as soon as hatched,
This is a good way of killing them.
The little chick just before break.
iog the shell absorbs the last of
the yolk so it doesn't need any
kind of food for at least two days.
The first feed should be coarse
sand and clear water. The little
chick needs the grit to grind its
The best feed for baby chicks
is rolled oats, dry bread crumbs,
hardboiled eggs, clabber, and
plenty of clean water. Clabber
makes them feather out quicker
and helps to kill white diarrhea
germs if there are any existing in
the chick's system.

Better Cooking Reduces
High Cost Of Living.
It is commonly remarked by
those who study the living condi
tions of people of limited means
in different parts of this country
that, for substantial Improvement
of their household economics, I
housewives must be informed as
to the high nutritive value of the
cheaper foods as compared with
the costlier kinds, and the method
of cooking must be improved.
A great deal of fuel is wasted
in the preparation of food and
even then a great deal is badly
cooked, says home economic spe.
cialists in the Uuited States De
partment of Agricultdure. To re
place dear food badly cooked by
cheaper food well cooked is im
portant for both health and purse.
To make the table more attractive
is an efficient means of making
the home life more enjoyable.

Railroad Investors Protected.

are assured of a large measure of

000 of capital that has thus far
been devoted to the upbuilding
of our transportation system.
Hundreds of millions-yes bil
lions-of new funds must be put
into railroad building if our in
dustral growth is not to be stunted
by a failure to provide adequate
transportation facilities. This
new capital can come only from
the savings of thrifty invest
ors and these savings can be
attracteed only by making rail.

Fruit Trees Good Investment.
The ordinary individual craves
a certain amount of fruit in his
diet. On the average farm fruit
constitutes only about 6 per cent
in value of all food consumed.
This percentage could be incoreas
ed to good advantage, making
fruit a more important part of the
diet, says the United States De
partment of Agriculture.
Many farmsteads include fruit
trees and grape arbors as a part
of the planting scheme around
the dwelling. A small area of
the farm devoted to apple trees,
peach trees, berry plants, or other
fruit suited to the region, is a
good investment for any farmer.
About two-thirds of the fruit con.
sumed. by the average farm fam
ily is produced on the home farm.
