EL PASO HERALD
Saturday October 5, 1912
Cooking is a matter which con
cerns the whole family, and under
modern methods and conveniences
it is made so attractive the whole
family is becoming interested, if not
'taking part in it.
"These biscuits are delicious; this cake is
. excellent," says the father. " I made them,
says the daughter, and both father and
'daughter beam with pleasure.
It is a crime, with our modern agencies,
helps and facilities, to have soggy biscuit, or
wooden cake, or leaden pastry.
Royal Baking Powder has made home
baking a success, a pleasure and a profit, and
the best cooking today the world over is
done with its aid.
When Poultrymen Lose Interest and Pay For -It.

yS this section all breeding pons
A should be made up by the first of
January, and it is none too early
now to begin to cast about and select
or buy your breeding' stock, and the
question of the Impro-rement of nis
flock is the one wJhlch should be. up-,
permost in the mind of every breeder.
Too often this matter Is not given the
proper attention, and the breeder Is
the loser. To Illustrate: Here is a breed
er who last winter kept 50 hens. This
season he has been hatching and rais
ing chickens, beginning early and con
tinuing all through .the summer, so
that at this time he has, we will say,
250 bead of young stock from eight
months to eight weeks old. Half of
these are pullets. By Thanksgiving he
will have disposed of all his surplus?
miips hut thlnkintr that he mlcht make I
a good thing out of his pullets during
the winter he plans to keep the entire
lot along with the 50 old hens. There is
where he makes a mistake and is not
giving the attention to the selection of
his flock which he should. Many of
the old hens should be culled out and
marketed, and many of the pullets are
so late hatched that they will not pay
for their keoping through the winter,
and being late hatched will never at
tain the size to be desired, either in
breeding or laying stock. Some are al
ready stunted; some ill-shaped, and as
a matter of fact out of the whole lot of
125 pullets he has but 75 which should
be kept even on a utility farm, and
certainly where eggs for hatching or
breeding stock are sold the culls should
find no place. And especially In this
particular place, where feed is high,
no bird should be carried through the
winter unless you are reasonably sure
she will be a producer. Of couse one
cannot always accurately select every
bird that will yield profit, but he can
throw out a lot which he knows to a
certainty will be unprofitable.
He can tell that a late hatched bird
will not be likely to begin laying un
til towards the next spring, so if ho
wants winter layers all those will have
to be thrown out. and if he wants a
uniform flock of birds better In shape,
size and egg production, he will keep
none of these undesirables.
Sell the Stunted Birds.
As to a stunted bird no breeder has
eTer any use for her. Sell every one
of them as soon as they show size
enough to look good to the butoher for
the expense of keeping thenr until they
begin to lay is so great that by the
time they commence their productive
ness they have become pretty high
priced birds, and even if they should
finally grow out of their "stunt" cer
tainly no breeder would ever think of
letting so slow maturing a bird slip
into a breeding pen. Better dispose of
them early In the engagement so that
you know they will not.
Cull the "Weak Ones.
Then again, in making up your flocks,
dispose of all that show signs of any
weakness. Sometimes we see a bird
which, looks nice enough, but sbows
signs of not being stro-jg and vigor
ous. A sort of sluggish bird, one that
sits around and is not active. Nothing
but strong, active, vigorous birds ehould
be In the flock, so better get rid of
all the sleepy heads. Vigor is the one
thing which the breeder ra-ist place
stress on if he expects to build up his
flock. The strong birds are the only
ones that can be depended on to pro
duce strong chicks. To keep hens that
show a lack of vigor is to encourage
the running out of your flock.
Look out for disease. Keep it out of
the flock by proper care and sanitation,
and whenever a fowl shows disease of
any kind mark her for the butcher as
soon as she recovers. Never breed from
a bird that has ever had any serious
sickness. Vigor being the chief aim of
the poultryman; it Is best to give the
birds which have been always well the
benefit of the doubt, and breed only
from these. In the human family cer
tain diseases have a weakness and
with poultry It is much more the case.
Better dispose of every bird which has
ever Been sick and be on the safe side.
I do not like to have them even in the
utility flock, for I have observed that
where a bird has once been seriously
sick they are rendered more suscepti
ble to disease and are liable to be sick
again and can easily be the means of
communicating -disease to the entire
With a view to Improving the flock,
the trap nest should not be over
looked. It Is much less of a job than
might be supposed. Of course it is a
little best to trap nest the entire year,
but this is by no means necessary. As
a rule the hen whl'-h will lay the great
est number of eggs during the months
of January and February and March
can oe depended oi to hold the record
for the year so for practical purposes It
Is necessary to trap nest only during
thcie three months.
