TRE*~MENT FOR ROUPY TUR
Wild turkeys are lough as Iron;
tami> turkeys are soft. Inbreeding, ill
feeding nnd breeding for size have
reduced their stamina, and they can't
stand exposure like their ancestral
king of the woods, if not often blown
by a blizzard off the sour apple tree,
the wind ruffles their feathers, hits
them In the chest, and then come

THE PERIOD OF INCUBATION.
Broody Biddy is apt to fool us by
batching her eggs before or after the
date set. Though a hen generally fin
ishes her hatch the twenty-first day,
the condition of hen or eggs or weather
may vary the time. We have known
eggs to hatch the eighteenth, niiu>
teenth, twentieth, twenty-first and even
on the twenty-fourth day. A hot blood
ed hen that sits tight oa strongly fer
tilized fresh eggs often finishes on the
eighteenth. A hen of low hatching
heat hatches late, and though the eggs
are strong her chicks may be weak. A
fussy hen that goes off and on and neg
lects her eggs may retard her chicks to
the twenty-fourth. Extremes of tem
perature often affect the time of hatch
ing, heat hastening, cold retarding the
chick. We believe incubation may be
suspended without injuring the germ.
English fanciers guarantee all egga
in a setting fertile. They place them
under heat just long enough to see the
germ, test out infertiles, then ship.
We have reset eggs deserted by hens
for several days, and they hatched
well. Through accident to an incuba
tor 200 eggs were away from hatching
heat for thirty hours. They were kept
covered, reset and 160 chicks hatched
one day behind time.
We mention this so you may not rush
to throw out eggs that do not hatch on
the minute. Though circumstances
may cause occasional variation, each
breed of fowls has its period of incu
bation, the following table being con
sidered standard for the species men
Chicken 21 Turkey 28
Guinea 25 Peafowl 28
Goose SO Pheasant 26
Duck 28 Partridge 24
FEATHERS AND EGGSHELLS.
Duck yards should be scraped often.
Wet weather soaks them up and the
white ducks puddle, and how filthy
they get and, oh, what a smell! "Nuf
Aniline dye instead of eggs is being
used in Philadelphia to give cakes that
pretty yellow color. Yes; the fools
and the deep dyed villains aren't all
Butter and eggs naturally go togeth
er, and poultry and dairy go so well to
gether that many are combining the
two. With bees and fruit added there's
a boodle bonanza.
A butcher of San Francisco swallow
ed fifty-four eggs in ISG seconds and
won $100. Then he took two drinks of
whisky and resumed his butchering.
That sure beats the Old Nick.
Cock fights, dog fights and bull fights
are now under the ban in the Panama
canal zone. Think of $50 fine or jail
for fighting roosters! This new law
spoils another good market for game
There are some markets where there
are but few calls for ducks. It's not
wise to dress a whole stack of ducks
and then have to haul them back home.
Better take a crate of live ducks to
market and test the demand.
Cuba and South America are the mar
ket for gamecocks. Enthusiasts find
it pays much better to breed and ship
these fighting birds than to fight stags
in this country and get fined and have
their names in the newspapers.
In buying that new gobbler don't
go to a neighbor, but buy far away

are related unknown to their owners.
They travel so far and are often out of

We asked a farmer's wife who was
dressing a hen how she could tell a

Is bad policy, for "the hen that lays
is the hen that pays."
When a York (Pa.) belfry was enter

Life Saved at Death's Door.
"I never felt so near my grave,"
writes W. R. Patterson, of Welling
ton, Tex., as when a frightful cough
and lung trouble pulled me down to
100 pounds, in spite of doctor's treat
ment for two years. My father, moth
er and two sisters died of consump
tion, and that I am alive today is due
solely to Dr. King's New Discovery,
which completely cured me.
Now I weigh 187 pounds and have
been well and strong for years."
