OBSERVATIONS WORTHY OF NOTE

Brief But Comprehensive Summary
of the Merita and Demerits of Game
Fowls Which nave a Record as Old

thusiastically cultivated by fanciers and
country gentlemen of leisure than the
game, although farmers, as a rule, have
little or nothing to do with game fowls.
mi. - - . . . ... - . .
xne origin ana nationality of the game
fowl must remain a disputed question,
inasmuch as its record is as old as the
lest written history. The game cock
designated bv Wrio-lit. .i tli nmlu.
puted king of all iwultry, and requiring
more careful iudrins iu reuurd tn hYiium
ntn any other bird. Thero are four
cognized breeds namely, game, game
antniii. Sumatra came, ami Mlv.
The varieties are legiou, there lieiiig six
teen distinct sorts recoimizeil hv th
S1LVKR UCCKWING OAMES.
Tlie gamts aro all attractive in appear
ance, the duekwing iM-ing perhaps the
most beautiful. It is characterized by
exceetlingly graceful form and dignified
carriage and brilliantly colored plum
age. The silver duckwings are purer in
blood than the yellow duckwings, and
are white skinned when of pure breed.
The best layers, according to Wright,
are the black breasted reds, with yellow
legs, and the red Cheshire piles, with
white legs. Tlie worst layers are the
grays. With the exception'of these lat
ter game fowls, as a rule, lay remark
ably well, averaging from 200 to 250
eggs per annum
The merits of game fowls are many
and various. They rank, as already
stated, in the verv first class as lavers.
providing they have good runs. They
are also the best of table fowls as regards
quality and flavor of flesh. Indeed, for
delicacy of flavor their flesh is beyond
comparison. They do not require to lie
fattened and they eat comparatively lit
tle. As mothers the hens are not to be
equaled. There are of course draw
backs. Tlie size of both birds and eersrs
is small, and in confinement the game hen
will by no means lav so well as the
Brahmas, Hamburgs and many other
varieties. Their quarrelsome disposition
is also against them. Games cannot
therefore be classed among breeds profit
able for tho average poultry keeper.
They will, however, afford much pleas
ure to amateurs and others who can cive
their fowls ample range, being beautiful
to look at and providing a constant and
abundant supply of delicious eggs and
delicately flavored meat.
BI.ACK BREASTED RED GAMES,
As our readers already know games
are largely bred for tho pit, and at poul
try shows carry off the lion's share of
premiums. The best criterion of blood
in all game fowls, according to Wright,
is the color of the eyes. Black eyes show
dark blood, and the hens of such strain
lay white eggs. Red eves show red blood,
and the hens lay pinkish eggs.. Yellow
eyes are inferior in spirit to the others.
The sorts most used for fichtinir are
those with black or red eyes, such as the
brown breasted reds, dark grays, black
breasted reds and red piles.
Seeding Winter Wheat.
American Cultivator gives advice as
follows in regard to seeding winter
The time for wheat sowing should be
carefully considered. Most farmers are
too much hurried, thinkiug that a large
growth is what is mainly needed to en
able thi plant to . withstand the winter
and spring freezing and thawimr. A
heavy Top for wheat is all right, provided
It is grown under the proper conditions
of cool and moist air and soil. Wheat
is not a hot weather plant. It loves
moisture, especially in early stages of its
growth. Reed sown while the soil is
parched with summer heats cannot make
the right kind of growth to stand the
winter. It is better to wait until
Octolier for the rain than to sow in a
dry time earlier than this.
In dry soil the seed is sure to lie cov
ered too deeply, and the plant will lose
part of its vigor lforo the germ reaches
the surface, Jf hot weather follows, as
it is apt to do with very early sowing,
the wheat spires upward and the root
grows downward. W hat Is wanted is
cool, wet weather to lieat the leaves back
to the soil as soon as they come above it.
This causes the plant to Bpread horizon
tally, and the roots naturally grow in
the same direction. Another most im
portant point in wheat seeding is ta keep
manure as much as possible near the snr
f;ice or on it.
Fertilizing Patatnre Lands.
Ook1 stable manure, well distributed,
is the best fertilizer for pasture lands.
If an artitiiyid fertilizer is used it is best
applid when seeding to grass. When
naturally fertile euougli to yield a good
crop of grass, land will not only main
tain its fertility under pasturage, but,
esiecially when pastured by sheep, will
want u uoejsj.

The great merit of Reii'e Ger
man Cough and Kidney Cure
is its instantaneous action; on
does not have to take it a month
before one perceives its good
effects. A single dose often
prodnces . beneficial results,
while a bottle will cure the
worst cold. When there is
chronic difficulty it is best to
persevere ia taking it until a
permanent cure is effected; but
it is certain to help the verv
worst cases if persisted in. Jt
is unrivalled in this particular.
Every onewho has taken it is
satisfied with it, aud this is one
of its strongest recommenda
tions. In lumbago, a pain in
the back, it ac ts at once, and re
lieves the sufferer. The sud
den changes in the summer,
caused by the severe storms
that set in from the northwest,
are greatly provocative of colds
that show themselves in colic.
diarrhtva, bilious attacks, etc.,
Reid's German Cough and Kid
ney Cure at once relieves the
patient and checks the malady.
Tn all cases of this kind it is
simply invaluable. No house
hold should be without it, be
cause a dose taken at the be
ginning of a difficulty will re
store tone to the system and en
able the stomach to throw off
the morbid poison that is irrita
ting it. There is neither mor
phine; opium, nor any other
poison in it, so that there is no
after effects to overcome; on the
contrary the whole digestive
and circulatory system is in
better snaps to resist disease
than it was before. A bottle of
this great remedy should there
fore always be kept on hand. i
It is invaluable for invalids.
