Rules to be Observed for Successful
la choosing the incubator yon will
um, do not be altogether, or mostly,
governed by prices. Get what seems
to jrou to be the best, and pay what
ever price is necessary to get it. Do
not let any one talk you into any other
course, says the Indianapolis News.
Of all the necessary .equipment for
poultry production, this stands first
in importance, and much of your sue
cess will depend upon the intelligent
selection of a hatching machine.
When the machine arrives, uncrato
it carefully. Put together the different
parts according to the directions. If
you have bought a good machine the
printed Instructions for setting up and
starting will bo ample. There are a
few common sense points, however,
which will serve to save time and
Put the Incubator in a cellar or
room where there Is a pretty even
temperature and good ventilation.
Even the best machines will do better
work In such a place than when sub
Jected to sudden and severe changes.
The eggs, also will suffer less from
abrupt and frequent variations while
turning. Keep the lamp wicks clean
and trim as often as necessary to do
this. Trimming every day Is unnec
essary. With good oil, every third
day Is often enough.
Do not fuss too much over the tem
perature. It can vary a degree or two
either way and do no harm. Tho eggs
may run as low as GO degrees for
some hours and then hatch well. De
ware of overheating. It is more un
natural, and, hence, more harmful.
The very best advice Is to do the nec
essary work expeditiously, keep the
lamp clean, the room well aired, and
forget to putter and worry.
How It Can Be Done Without Injury
to the Bees.
Last fall, when I began packing my
bees for winter, I found that my shed
was not long enough to pack them all
in, so I began to plan some easy way
to pack seven colonies that I had out
in front of my shed, writes a contrib
utor to Bee Culture. These hives are
standing on what I call trestles, made
by driving some large stakes in the
ground and nailing some 2x6 pieces to
each row of stakes running east and
west, tho hives facing the south, so I
placed tho hives Just the right dis
tance apart, then took some three-foot
boards I had and laid a board down
Outside Shelter for Bees.
between each hive flat on tho trestlos
The south ends of the boards aro Just
even with the front ends of the hives,
and the north end extends out one
foot further north than tho hives do.
Then I drove some stakes In a row at
tho north end of these boards. These
stakes can be six or eight feet apart.
I nailed a broad plank to tho south
side of theso stakes. The lower edgo
of this plank was Just ono Inch high
er than tho boards that I laid on the
trestle. This plank serves for a back
wall to hold the straw.
Now remember that there Is about
one foot of space between this plank
and the back end of the hives, and
that there Is an open space between
theso boards Just back of each hive,
so to make a floor without any holes
big enough to leak straw. I lay
boards back of the hives across tho
ends of tho boards that are laid bo
tween tho hives; tho rest of the work
Is done Just llko packing them In a
shed, except, of courso, tho roof. Tho
straw Is about ono foot deep on top of
the hives. Then I laid a largo rail on
top of the straw at the front end, and a
small rail on the back part of the
straw. I then covered it by laying
long boards across the top of the
straw so tho water would run north;
then I put heavy weights on the
boards to hold them to their place.
The roof must havo plenty of slope. 1
notice qulto a number of bee-keepers
have their hives resting on trestles
or scaffolds, and I must say that they
When working with your bees, In
stead of setting frames down on the
ground one can set them on the
trestle and lean them up against the
hive; and when winter comes I can
pack my bees In straw without mov
ing them very much. This way of
wintering Is a cheap one, and it has
proven to be safe.
tort Out the Pig.
If you have a lot of young pigs ot
different ages, separate them Into lots

ATTRACTIONS OP WESTERN
Maffllfktnt Crop Returns for tho
The manner In which, the Canadian
West baa attracted settlers In recent'
years has caused many of our Journals
and public men to "alt up and take no
tice," to use a current phrase. From
very European country and from al
most every State In the Union large
number of settlers have flocked to the
prairie provlnoea of Canada, where
free homosteads and wide opportun
ities are open to all who desire to
avail themsolves of them.
The greatest factor In attracting
settlers lies in the Inherent richness
of soil and suitability ot climate for
producing what is universally consid
ered to be the finest wheat in the
world the "No. 1 Hard" of Canadian
growth and other cereals that rank
in the very first class. This year the
harvest returns were: Wheat, 80,
000,000 bushels; oats, 76,000,000 bush
els; barley, 17,000,000 bushels; and
when it is considered that the entire
population of the three provinces at
evidenced by the quinquennial census
just completed is only 810,000, it It
easily aeon that the lure of the Cana
dian West is in its agricultural poten
tialities. Another feature which attracts the
settler Is that railway construction Is
proceeding with such rapidity that al
most every district Is within easy
reach of outside markets, and that
good prices for all lines of farm prod
ucts rule practically from tho com
mencement of agricultural operations.
This Is a factor which did not prevail
when the earlier settlements in the
West wero made In Canada and in the
United States, and has given great
Impetus to Canadian Western settle
ment In recent years.
Tho free grant system of home
steads which prevails in the prairie
provinces, by which every settler who
Is able and willing to comply with the
conditions of actual settlement (by no
means onerous) Is given 160 acres
freo, except $10 for entry, is a great
drawing card, and in tho last fiscal
year gathered in over 189,000 addi
tional to the western population, of
which 67,796 wero from the United
The further fact, aa is strongly
brought about by the agent of the
Canadian Government, whoso address
appears olsewhero, that a splendid
common school system, practically
free, prevails throughout tho cntlro
country, and Is easy of access in even
the most remote districts. Is another
great inducement to tho settler who
has the future welfare of his family
in mind, and this, coupled with the
fact that western Canadian law and
order aro proverbial, completes a
circle of good and sufficient reasons
why tho tldo of Immigration has set
in so steadily toward tho country to
the north of our boundary lino.

"Last year I suffered wlth-a tremen

At night when I went to bed things
got worse, and I had at times to got

I was as sore as could be, and until I

Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, It Is usually neces
sary to uao so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric Is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects tho wear
ing quality of the goods. This trouble
can be entirely overcome by using De
fiance Starch, as It can be applied
much more thinly because of Its great
er strength than other makes.
