GRIND AND MIX YOUR OWN
Poultrymen hav.e generally discarded
wet feed mixtures for chicks.
They briny indigestion and. with
gapes, have caused great mortality
among young turkeys and chickens.
Preventive measures have stopped
gapes in many docks, and feeding dry
broken grain, with grit and charcoal,
has eliminated indigestion almost en
tirely from many yards.
A number of fanciers grind and mis
their own feed.
An excellent grist mill find shell
breaker can be secured for $3.
Most anything suitable for feed and
grit may be ground in this, and the
oyster shells, which usually cost noth
ing, that one may prepare for winter
pay for the machine.
Thus one saves money, and his
chickens get sound, fresh grain, iv
right size and mixed in proper propor
For the accommodation of those who
desire to mix their own feed we fur
nish the following formulae:
Cracked wheat S
Cracked corn 10
This is the basis for true feed, and
the following may be added:
Kaffir corn 80
Cracked peas lo
Cracked rice 3
At six weeks of age use the follow
ing for scratch food:
Whole wheat UO
Coarse cracked corn 15

Novel Method of Preserving Meat and
Fish Without Ice.
This illustration shows an ingenious
French method of preserving fish and
meats for periods as long as eight or
ten days without ice. yet the food is
kept absolutely fresh, says Popular
Mechanics. The requirements for
making the preserver are simple, con

are hooked to the crosspiece of the
broom handle. On top of the water
near the center stick are placed two
ordinary pill boxes, each containing a
little powdered sulphur. This is light
ed, and over all is placed the glass
bell, the lower edge of which rests un
der water on bricks or other objects
placed on the bottom of the tub. The
sulphuric acid given off absorbs the
oxygen in the air under the bell glass
aud then dissolves itself in the water.
It is claimed that when the meat or
fish is removed several days later as
fresh as when placed in the preserver
there is no smell of sulphur or brim
Germs Not Easily Frozen.
Death dealing germs flourish in the
coldest of cold weather. They live
even in the intense cold of liquid air.
Infectious disease, such as diphtheria,
measles, scarlet fever and smallpox
are quite as common in the winter as
at any other time. Colds aud sore
throats are more prevalent. All these
diseases are caused by germs —those
malignant organisms which swarm
and breed everywhere. In summer
time the smell of putrefaction tells
that something is wrong, and a dis
infectant is immediately used. In
winter there is no such warning, and
the first intimation is the actual ill
ness. There is. therefore, the greater
need for efficient protection against
disease germs—protection which is
best afforded by the use of a highly
