gainly, rdini bodied hon, that spends her
time looking for something to get scared
at. A record of the two flocks showed a
difference of 20 per cent, in the number
of eggs laid. No. 1 kept laying until
nearly denuded of feathers, and finished
moulting and began laying quicker than
No. 2. A short legged, deep bodied, full
breasted, wedge shaped large combed
hen. with a quiet disposition, has capac
ity to consume large quantities of food
and return eggs instead of noise and
flutter. The breeder is confident that
this flock, grown from selected mothers,
will average 200 eggs each per annum.
The 20 per cent, advance obtained makes
a difference of $1 each in the two flocks.
There are "families" of butter cows

The egg shell is largely carbonate and
phosphate of lime, while the edible por
tion is composed of 74.6 per cenfc. of wa

cent, of fat and 9 per cent, of ash. This
is the average of eighty eggs analyzed
at the Geneva experiment station. Milk
and meat are largely albumen. The hen
cannot elaborate lime and albumen from
fat or starchy food, which is chiefly val
uable for the warmth it furnishes; hence
corn is a poor food, and milk, meat and
shell are very essential for egg produc
tion. Eggs differ in quality and appearance
in accordance with the nature of the
food. Cotton seed meal in excess gives
an egg a week old taste that is disgust
ing. Onions give a rank taste. Too

sea shells spoil the beautiful white of the

Erery Day language Good Enongh for
. Some time since, as Samuel Shin was
cleaning up Paradise hall in readiness
for the usual weekly meeting, he flung a
pan of ashes out of one of the windows
fronting on the alley, and the same de
scended upon the head of Colonel Inquirer
Jones, who was about to enter the hall.
There has been bad blood between the
pair in consequence, or, rather, the colo
nel has wasted a great deal of time in
trying to catch' Samuel in some lonely
locality. Odds of ten to one have been
given that he would succeed, but at the
last meeting, to the surprise of every
body, he walked up to Brother Shin and
extended his hand and waved the flag of
peace. This action was brought about
by a telegram announcing the death of
his mother in North Carolina. Two
hours later he heard that she had been
dead thirteen years when the v telegram
was sent, but he was not the man to go
back on his word.
"Gem'len," said Brother Gardner, as
the meeting came to order, "I hev a few
words of advice to offer which I hope
will be keerfully listened to an' im
pecuniously considered. I has obsarved
a tendency on de part of many members
of disclub to affeck what maybe tarmed
de Shakspearian style of conyersashun.
It cums from de white folks, of co'se
from dat class who has been suddenly
elevated by de profits of a sewer con
tract, an' should be sot down on wid de
most vigorous disqualification. It hain't
in keepin' wid de financial an' soshul
standiu' of a man who, has to black
stoves an' lay on whitewash at an aiver
age jjicome of seben dollars a week. I
want it stopped."

dent, "how many members of dis club

tered no less dan f o'teen times. What's
de use of a man airnin' a dollar a day
obsarvin' dat he expecks to condescend
to the irresponsible endeavor befo'
spring? He doan know whether it means
dat cranberries am . gwine tip to fo'ty
cents a quart or will drap down to six,
an' his hearer goes home an' can't sleep
fur thinkin' about it. Sich conversashun
simply implacates a resinous disinclina
tion to absorb the proper desideratum."
