The high prevailing prices of vari
ous cereals and mill by-products used
in feeding poultry may cause some
breeders to short feed their birds, and
to do so is a great mistake. A good lay
ing hen will, after supplying her sys
tem, convert the remainder of her
digestible food into substances within
her body and from which eggs are
made. To half feed poultry means
there will be no profit.
The results of egg laying contests
In several states show that if the cost
or tne rood used bad been half as
much more there would still have
been a profit of $5 for every eight
hens. Of course if one has unpro
ductive stock it should be disposed of
without regard to the price of food
If there are good reasons for re
ducing stock, the following Is recom
mended: First, reduce by discarding
all inferior, unthrifty, and aged speci
ment. Second, dispose of surplus male
birds. These eat food and give no re
turn; they also occupy space which
should be occupied by profit-making
pullets. Third, keep one breed and
specialize; breed none but good ones
for the purpose In view not more
than two, one for egg production, the
other for table bird breeding.
The average farmer feeds on grain
alone. His wife or daughters gener
ally own the poultry, and the fowls
gain a good deal of their food in the
form of insect life and in tbe stables
and around feed lots. The farm yielS
of eggs would be much larger If the
farmer would always see to it that the
proper food materials were always at
hands for feeding the poultry.
At mid-day the fowls should have
green food, choped alfalfa, clover, rape,
sprouted oats, or kale. A third of the
food of fowls should be of this char
acter. At night, (an hour before sun
set) the birds should have a feed
of wheat, cracked corn or other good
grain. Bran should be available In
self feeders at all times; Its value
Is largely due to its phosphorus con
tent. The morning ration should con
sist of ground grains to which a third
in bulk of chopped green food should
be added; this mixed with a little
bran makes a ration of high feeding
Single test each pullet before using
for breeding purposes. If they prove
to be good layers they are worth a
lot of money; If they are poor layers
they should go to the kitchen. Single
testing is tbe only road to success
in building up a laying strain.
Erect scratching sheds facing the
south or east. L'se dean straw litter.
Feed birds as suggested and see tha?
drinking vessels are clean and pro
vided with clean water. Provide grit
(hard and shell), also charcoal grit.
Give a daily supply of green food,
keep a sharp lookout for chicken
pox. If a few worts or pimples ap

ALPINE LIFE LINES.
The Ropas Are Selected For Strength,
Flexibility and Lightness.
The ropes nsed by Alpine climbers
is of special mannfitcture. combining
as far as possible tbe differing quali
ties of strength, flexibility and light
ness. Three qualities are In peneral use,
being made from slsn). Italian and
Manila hemps respectively, and occa
sionally, wben cost is not a considera
tion, of silk. The latter, though very
light and strong, Is not so durable as
the others. That which finds most fa
vor among British mountaineers is
known as Buckingham's Alpine rope.
It is made of the best Manila hemp.
In the year lSi4, Mr. McLelsh re
calls, a committee of the Alpine club
made tests upon a number of ropes
suitable for mountaineering. Of the
two that were approved one was made
of Italian hemp and tbe other of Ma
nila. They both had a breaking strain
of two tons and sustained the weight
of a twelve stone man after falling
from a height of ten feet.
Nonmountalneers have sometimes
considered this insufficient, but It is
highly problematical whether the hu
man anatomy could survive the sud

from any greater fall. Fry's Maga

thanks that all sin was about to be !
abolished and that a pious man was j
leading their country back to the
"good old days" of Oliver Cromwell.
The "pious man" was Jamts, Duke
of Monmouth. He had about as much
piety as a peacock and almost as
much beauty. To this day it is hard
to decide whether he was more black
guard or arrant coward. Probably an
equal blend of both.
Charles II of England dk-d without a
direct heir. Thus his younner broth
er mounted, the throne as King James
II. Many English people hated and
distrusted King James. Mai:y politi
cians looked on him .as an enemy of
their pet schemes. A large number
of Englishmen were Puritans who
were disgusted with tho dissipation
and extravagance of Charles' reign
and sighed for the graver, gadlier
times cf Cromwell.
Monmouth was the son of one Lucy
Walters, who claimed to have been
secretly married to Charles II. Mon
mouth declared ho was therefore the
rightful heir to tbe British throne.
Ho land tbe poli'ici&ns who made ute
of him) siiid the records of the mar
riage and of his birth were hidden
in a mysterious "black box," aDd
would be produced at the proper time.
Charles had publicly denied this story.
But this proved little. For ChsrU?s
had had a way of denying anything
h did not want to confess. And he
had lent color to th rumor by his
great affection for young Monmouth.
Now that Charles was dead and
James was on tho throne. In 1633,
Monmouth wss thrust forward by a
group of shrewd men es England's
lawful King. His advisers first
worked on the weak Duke's ambitions,
then persuaded tho Puritans that he
would bring back the customs of
CromwelL They Induced Monmouth
to raise the flag of rebellion In the
west of England where Puritanism
waa stronpeet. Monmouth proclaimed

At Sedemoor, in tbe early morning
of July 6, 1685. Monmouth's troops
found themselves close to the King's
army. The Duke had planned a night
attack. But in the darkness his forces
came to a water ditch they could not
cross. There, unable to advance, they
were attacked and routed by tho royal
Eoldiory. The peasants and other Pur
itans fought like heroes and were lit
erally cut to pieces before they would
retreat. Hut lit almost tho very be

Even this whine did not save him,
though It was later reported that ho
was smuggled to a French prison and
became "The Man in the Irou Mask,"
yet Monmouth was rHy beheaded,
July 15, 1385. Finding he could not
live, be managed to go to the scaffold
with some show of bravery, even ad
vising the executioner how best to
sever Lis head at one stroke. This
advice made tho executioner so urv
