EARLY MOLTING OF CHICKENS
Western Poultryman Gives Excellent
Method of Controlling Hens In
Moat people believe that If thojr can
force their hcn3 to molt carlr thoy
will lay more eggs during tbo season,
but this Is not true. Hens that havo
molted Jato will lay more eggB during
tho winter than tho early molters.
Tills has been shown by tho moat
careful experiments, but tho facts nro
not generally known.
Molting hens requlro a large amount
of feed containing nitrogen such ns oil
meal, meat and other feeds rich In pro
tein. Molting can bo forced by cutting
down tho feed of hens ns It has been
shown by experiments that scantily
fed hens begin molting earlier than
those on full feed, but tho former do
not finish molting much earlier.
Starred hens molt mora uniformly
than others and this Is particularly
notlcoablo In hens two or thrco jtara
In an experiment conducted by tho
Cornell experiment station It was
found that on a basis of 100 hens tho
fed flock produced eggs to tho alue

Tbo total Income from all tho birds
was $27S for the started flock and
$1180 for the fed flock, a difference In
favor of natural molting for tho year
of about $05.

This parablo marks tho high level
of tbo jcar ot popularity In tho llfo of
our Lord. It Is uuch an Important
mlraclo as to bo tho only one recorded
by all four gospel writers.
Tho returning disciples (v. 30) aro
urged by tho Master to como with hltn
Into n desert place that they might
rest, nnd also that ho might comfort
ibclr hearts over the death of John
tho Uaptlnt. "They had no leisure."
Jesus knew tho need nnd also tho
proper use of leisure. Hut tho multi
tude would not grant this and flocked
lo his retreat In tho desert. They saw
and followed that they might listen
to his gracious words or behold somo
new wonder, but Jesus nUo saw nnd
ministered, v. 21. Carllslo said ho snw
In Hngland "forty millions, mostly
Tools." Not so with Jcsu3. Ho saw
and was moved, not with sarcasm, but
with compassion, which compassion
took a tangnblo form of service. It is
Interesting to noto In verso 3t that tho
rorapasslon of Jesus led him first of
all to teach. It is better to teach n
man how to help himself than to help
tho man. Wo nlko Infer from this
verse that tho soul of n man Is of
mero value than his bodv. It Is not
enough, however, to say, "God bless
you, bo fed nnd warm," when n man
(s hungry. So It Is that Jesus listened
to his dlclples when they saw tho
physical need of tho multitude.
A Great Task,
St. John tclla us In this connection
of tho conversation with Philip. Phil
ip lived In Ilethsalda uoar by, yet to
feed this multitude was for him too
great a task, even with his knowlcdgo
of tho resources at hand, John G:5-7.
Yet we need not bo surprised at Phil
ip's slowness of faith. Moses In Uko
manner wbb once nonplussed how to
feed six thousand In tho wilderness,
tco Num. 11:21-23. It Is not so much
ua to how great tho need nor how lit
tle wo poitess, but rather Is tho little

discovered tho Saviour unto Peter, dis
