DARK BRAHMA FOWLS.
.4 Breed Which Many Class Among the
Beat Asiatic Varieties.
The Dark Brahmas are ranked by one
authority as next in merit, among the
Asiatic breeds, to the Light Brahmas, and
A PAIR OF DARK iiRAHMAS.
many breeders claim that they are the
best, of the Brahma variety. It is stated
that this breed was perfected' English
breeders out of a brtxxl of chic kens that
were bred by mating a black red Shang
hai cock with a gray Shanghai hen. The
first importations known as Dark Brah
mas were made abont 1865, and many of
them were of the single comb kind. The
breeding of pea comb Brahmas to Par
tridge Cochins produced new blood, and
later they were bred with less of the
Cochin shape. The first Dark Brahmas
showed more or less bronze in the wing
coloring of the cocks, and the ground
coloring of the females was a bronzt
gray, the steel gray, which is now the
standard American color, lx-ing secured
by an occasional cross with Light Brah
The pea comb which should surmount
the head of the Dark Brahma cock re
aembles three small combs running par
allel the length of the head, the center
one the highest; beak strong, well
enrvod. wattles full, ear loles red, well
rounded and falling lielow wattles; the
breast should be full aud broad, wing?
small and well tncked np under the
saddle feathers and thigh fluff. The
markings of the hen, except the neck
and tail, are the same all over, each
feather having a dingy white ground
closely penciled with dark steel gray.
Growing Corn for Fodder and Siluge.
As a summary of what has leen
learned in growing corn for fodder nnd
silage the directors of the agricultural
eieriment station of Cornell university.
New York, advise the selection of the
largest varieties that will fully mature
before frost in the locality where grown.
Special attention is called to the fact
that heretofore it has lieen a common
practice to sow or plant corn for fodder
and ensilaging entirely too thick. Starch
and sugar are not fully developed with
out an nbnndance of sunlight, and im
mature plants are likely to contain a
very large per cent of water.
So far all the experiments go to show
that effort should be made to raise the
largest yield of grain irresjiectivo of
stalks, no matter what purpose it is in
tended for, but it will bo found as a rule
the larger the vield of grain the larger
will be the yield of stover, and the less
percentage of nitrogen in the riper prod
uct is compensated for in its increased
nntritive value. Furthermore, the fact
should not be lost sight of that wood
and water alone are not good foixls for
animals, In'-ndes, being expensive prod
nets to handle. '
' When to Cut Clover for Hay.
The usual rule is to cut clover for haj
when the majority of the heads are lie-
ginning to pass out of blossom. Some
farmers, esfiecially in dry localities, cut
clover in full blossom. Experience and
judgment are required to properly cure
clover. The less sap the less curing is
required; the dryer the climate the less
curing. T. B. Terry, one of Ohio's pro
gressive fanners, alwavs aims to have
the bay hot when it is drawn in. lie
emphasizes the importance of drawing
in clover hay during the hottest art of
the day and before it has collected any
Board Hay Covers.
In the illustration are shown two forms
of board hay covers, about which Prairie
Farmer has the following to sav
The angles at the top of the four sided
cover should be three-fourths of a right
angle, and it is not necessary that the
boards extend very far down the sides,
as it is at the highest point of the stack
OOOD HAY COVERS.
that the damage is done or begun. If
the lower corners are clipped, as shown
in the illustration, they will catch less
wind and lie less apt lo be disturbed,
though there is little danger of that after
they have thoroughly settled. If a hay
derrick is used in putting the covers on
it is best to fasten them together first.

Geese on the Farm.
When deciding the question whether
geese shall be admitted to the poultry
yard bear in mind the fiict that in addi
tion to their value as meat producers
each bird will make annually at least a
pound of feathers. The most popular
Urteds are the gray or Toulouse and the
white or Embden. The first named has
the advantage of size, which the second
makes up, however, in the fine quality
of its flesh. Deal, high authority in such
matters, places all white plumaged geese
under the denomination of Embden ex
cept the Irish. He calls attention not
only to the juiciness and fine flavor of
their flesh, but to the increased value of
their white feathers over the grav ones
of the Toulouse. Either breed requires
but little care when once started. They
thrive liest on extended grass runs with
plenty of water.
