A. When a chicken crawler gets on
a human he travels hard to get off
because that's not his natural grazing

A. A cock is a male one year or
more old; cockerel, less than a year,
lien is a female one or mure years
old; pullet, less than a year.
Q. My boy is crazy after bantams
and 1 expect to secure v dozen Se
bright hens for him. How many males
should 1 mate to them and how large
a pen and yard are necessary?
A. Two males. House and yard
each six feet square.
Q. Do you feed broken glass to

people who do. It often cuts the
crop and pierces the gizzard.

house and can get lots of beef blood
for my fowls. How should I prepare
A. Salt it as you do soup, then boil
in a sack and feed sparingly at h'rst.
Q. Which consumes the more feed,
pullets or old hens, and why?
A. Pullets. They are both growing,
repairing waste and laying and need
more. The old hens just need enough
to repair waste and for eggs.
FEATHERS AND EGGSHELLS.
You mustn't take it so much to heart
when you lose a chick. There are mil
lions and millions die every year, and
if a tear was shed for every dead one
all that survived might get drowned.
An editor dreamed that some one
had tied a plump turkey to the door
knob. The dream was so vivid ih.it
he went to the door, and, 10, there
stood the postman, who handed him
a letter in which was a bill. The edi
tor had sent this bill to a delinquent
subscriber, and he had the postmaster
return it to the editor unopened. It
wasu't your bill, was it?
A fancier in his catalogue advised
those who wash birds to give them
a drink of whisky when through the
operation. He was likely druuk when
he gave such advice, for no man would
do it who could think twice.
Now. be sare to scrape all flith out
of the yards, and get all old litter
away so the bens can't scratch in it,
and keep those brooder chicks away
from the old stock or they'll get Ike
and scaly leg.
If you do not wish to punch the
chicks' foot web until they are older,
mark the little chaps with carmine
ink. It will stay on for mouths and
improve the landscape.
If your chickens have the run of
the potato patch they will dig and eat
tl>e tubers. This would save you
work iv the fall, of course, but fowls
take the potatoes and let the St.;lks
stand and you'll be wondering why
your crop's a failure.
For lVki:i ducks the swinging
trough that la on the market is beat
They can't get into it or upset It and

rush at a governor's reception, where
a cracker, a si ■•■ nful of Ice cream and
a thimbleful of sour lemon are given
The turkey poult that shows no si:rn
of sickness at night and is found dead
under the old hen next morning likely
uas something in its crop yon ought
to see so that you may save the rest
from Roin.ir the same way.
F. W. Rurris of Jasonville, 111., raised
b fowl that la half guinea and half

with restaurant keepers wbo serve
canvasback (guinea) and teErter fry
on the same day, though not very good
for a window display.
