Although the cramming machine In
the hands of nri pxiicrt will probably give
the; best results In finished product, small
coops for fattening chickens will be
found tho most iirofltablo by most
chicken ralsere. These coops are used
very largely In Kniilnntl and liavo been
ndopttd successfully by tho Canadian
government. The accompanying Illus
tration shows a coop divided Into three
pnrtB, which will hold a dozen chickens.
These cops arc built of lath and one
Inch square pieces for the framework.
A. -r.- . .
si.atti:d i'atticning cooi'.
Each part Is two feet long, 10 Inches wide
mid i!0 Inches high, which experiments
have shown to be the bi st size.
Tho coops are placed out of doors In
the shade, either under trees or In an
open shed, but In M;ere wenther (should
be placed In a clott d building. A small
V-shaped trough is usrd to hold the
Teed, and water Is supplied In a cup,
which may be fastened to the fcluts.
Young chickens from four to six
months of age are commonly used for
fattening. About four are placed In ti
coop, where they are fd three times
dally, as much as they will eat of ground
Brain, chiefly oats, At or near the end
of the period of fattuilng, which lusts
from four to six weeks, a little tallow Is
added to the feed, which at all times Is
mixed with skim milk.
In a trial with 100 chickens, Prof.
James W. Itobinson, of Canada, found
that they almost doubled In weight In
Hfi days of feeding. I'eir every pound
of Increase In lHe weight they consumed
J.44 pounds of ground oats and G.43
pounds skim rnilk. At one dollar per
100 pounds for ground oats and 20 cents
per 100 pounds skim milk, the cost was
nearly O-'Ji cents per pound gain for feed
While the Increase In weight was
nearly 100 percent .this gain was mostly
of flesh. Three chickens ringed before
fattening weighed, with feathers off,
eight pounds and eight minces, their
boms weighed one pound two ounces,
and the edible rniat two pounds six
ounces. After this period of fattening,
three chickens, of the same quality at
the start, weighed with feathers off IS
pounds four ounces, and the edible meat
feven pounds six ounces. Not only wan
there a gain of about 200 per cent In edi
ble meat, but It was of much better qual
ity. If all fowls when fatted for the
market are conflmd for a month In
coops of this kind and fed In a similar
manner, they will return a much higher
price and greater profit. Orange Jildd

Severil weks ago one of the resi
dents of Smoky Hollow found lis ud
der's eggs under a decayed stump,
and, placing them under a bantam hen,
awaited result;. In due time the
clucking mother hatched out 13
striped adders. The brood was differ
ent from tho downy darlings which
Mie had previously reared, hut tlia
faithful bantam accepted her trust and
did the best she could under the cir
cumstances. Several of the strange
brood fell a prey to the family eat,
nnd others receded from eivlli.ntie-u
and took to tho woods, but nix of them
arc still following the puzalcd bantam
about the premises in the daytime and
at night sleeping In the Htraw nest
In which they were hatched. Tho
wriggling breiod have become suffi
ciently domesticated to respond to the
clucking of their foster mother. N. Y.

The habit of allowing colts to follow
the mares while at work or on the road
hould be dlteourage d, This practice has
been the. cause of more trouble and an
noyance than could herein be chronicled.
Many a fine colt has been ruined from
being caught in the drag, llsk harrow or
plow. On the other hand, not a few run
aways and smashups have been caused
by the maro fretting on account of the
colt attempting to follow tome strange
team. Whenever taking a mare to the
Held or to town leave tho colt In tome
lecure place where It can pet exercise
and shade, and the comfort attending
such practice will always be appreciated
when once tried. Twentieth Century
