SlADE FOR CHICKENS
any Chicks Are Victims of Sun
stroke or Apoplexy.
aural Shelter Is Best Because It h
Usually Formed by Trees and
Bushes, Permitting Flree
Movement of AP.
By PROF. JOHN WILLARD BOLT&,
Chickens are probably less wel
Lbe to stand, the extremes of heal
han any of our domestic animals, be
:use they do not sweat to any greal
=tent, -hence are deprived of -tha1
safety valve that all of the domesti
zted animals possess. It is undoubt
dy. true that the chicken's comb 'an(
wattles serve to cool off its blood t<
L very marked degree, but even the]
rill not avail in very hot weathei
md shade .of sone kind must be al
This is, especially true with bab:
hicks, as they cannot stand the di
ect rays of the summer sun ,nearl:
w well as the other fowl can. Man:
hicks are victims of sunstroke oi
poplexy every year, and it is usuall:
:he strongest and best developed oned
hat are overcome.
Natural shade is best of all because
.t is usually formed by trees and hlgl
mshes, sufflciently distant from the
ground to 'permit free movement a
dir and the sun can get around to di
fect1 the ground at certain times. B:
dl means have your hen coops, brood
ers and colony coops located in the
shade during the - middle of the <ray
If there is no shade availa'ble I1
:he yard where the baby chicks run
t will be necessary to provide some
a mighty good scheme Is to build
~rame about two feet off the grount
md cover It with four inches of so<
>r a foot of straw, weighted down
rhis heavy thick roof prevents th<
radiation of heat from its under sur
Face and Is quite waterproof, thui
laing the advantage of boards o:
The ground under this shelte:
hould be dry and dusty and the lii
:le fellows will spend the long, hot
iontime hours resting in thie coc
mzd dusting themselves.
With the older chickens, the prob
em is fully as serious and shade mus
me provided. This is sometimes don
ay raising the floor of the hen hous
. couple of feet above the ground
but this plan is objectionable be
ause of its cost and the fact that thi
uens lay In this scratching compart
nent and rats harbor there.
An orchard forms the very bes
locaton for the chicken park, as thi
:rees furnish shade and damaged o:
ecayed fruit, while the hens eat the
tree nsects and enrich the soil. Fo:
:he backyard flock of hens, eithe:
sun-flowers or sweet corn will prc
ride plenty of shade if planted thickli
The hen house Is usually of little
ralue for shade within, because th<
oof is too low and the breeze canno
alow directly through. If ,cross vet
:lation Is provided and there is at
ar space or straw loft under the roof
.ittle outside shade needs to be prc
ided. Wherever possible, have tha
ouse so located that there Is root
or the chickens to get in the shade or
my sid1e of It, out of doors.

TO REMEMBER WHEN IRONING
Matters of Consequence if One Would
Do Good Work ,and Preserve
the Clothes Handled.
First of all the Irons must be tim
maculately clean 4nd suited to the
article to be ironed Irons come now
In all sizes, for aU pa in.
Heat the. irons but hame
them very hot before staIrtA even if
they must be cooled later. Try them
on a soft clean cloh.
The ironing shee also must be
clean. For fine liagerie cover the
ordinary ironing sheat with .thin mar
terial; -for embroidery and lace sNe a
Turkish towel, planed tightly around
the board. To sdgffe articles slightly
without starch rub them on the wrong
side with warm water and borax.
To clean the Irons if starch sticks
rub them over fine emery paper, then
with a little paraffin wrapped in mus
lin. If an iron becomes rusty scrub
it with hot water and soap. then rub
It very lightly with lard. Wipe it
carefully with absorbent cotton to re
move all traces of the lard.
Never allow irons to get red hot,
as it takes the temper out. Do not
put a hot iron in water to cool it;
stand it on one side for a few min
It is unwise to put irons directly
over the gas flame, as It spoils the
iron. In the absence of a special de
vice for holding tlem use an asbestos
When possible colored goods should
be ironed on the wrong side, then
pressed on the right. This brings out
the coloring., All-wool underwear
ought not to be ironed, as Ironing
causes It to shrink.
Cut some rather thick slices from
the remains of a leg of mutton, re
move the fat and skin and trim them
so that they are the same size. About
an hour before they are required place
them in a deep dish with a few slices
of onion between the pieces of meat.
Sprinkle a little black pepper and
nutmeg over them and cover with oil
and vinegar mixed together in the
proportion of three tablespoonfuls of
oil to one of vinegar. Season a small
quantity of fine white breadcrumbs
with celery salt and pepper, and mix
together with onion and minced pars
ley. Wipe the slices of meat when
they are taken from the pickle, -dip
them into beaten egg and cover them
thickly with the prepared crumbs. Al
low the crumbs to harden on the
slices of meat for ten or fifteen min
utes and fry quickly in plenty of boil
ing fat. Drain and serve with aspin
ach or cabbage and a piquant sauce.
Take a pfece of shoulder weighing
fiye pounds. Have bone removed and
tie up meat to make it firm. Put
piece of butter size of half an egg, to
gether with a few shavings of onion,
into a kettle and let get hot. Salt and
peppei the veal and put into kettle,
cover tightly and put over a medium
fire until meal is brown on both sides,
turning it occasionally. Then set ket
tle on back of stove where It will
simmer slowly for about two and one
half hours. Before setting meat on
back of stove see if the juice of the
meat, together -with the butter, makes
gravy enough, and if not, add a lit
tle hot water. When gravy Is cold it
will be like jelly. Serve gravy hot
with hot meat or cold with cold meat.
Half pound dough,,.one teaspoonful
each of butter and sugar kneaded into
it; chop six/1 or eight prunes in four
tablespoonfuls sugar, chop first the
meat of three or four prunes very fine;
mix, shape the dough into sticks the
size of the little finger, roll in the
prunes, bake in oblong rings.
Sugar kringles are made In the same
way, substItuting 12 dozen bleached
and chopped almonds for the prunes;
roll the sticks rather smaller; make
oblong rings with one end crossing at
the middle to the opposite side.
Chop cabbag'e fine. Salad dressing,
put together in order given:. One cup
ful sugar, one teaspoonful mustard;
mix cupful sugar, one teaspoonful mus
tard; mix thoroughly; add small piece
of butter; cream as for cake; one egg
beaten, one-half scant cupful milk or
cream; beat all together; lastly one
half scant cupful vinegar.
This salad dressing can be made in
two minutes, as it needs no cooking,
and will keep as long as you wish.
Fine on lettuce.
Odds and ends of candles will make
an inexpensive polish for linoleum.
Use about equal parts of candle scraps
and common turpentine. Place In a
jar and stand where it is warm, un
til the grease is quite melted, then al
low to cool, where It will be soft and
creamy. Use with a soft cloth and pol
ish with a second soft cloth. A little
of the grease will go a long way.
Palatable Meat Loaf.
Leftover meat may be chopped and
mixed with leftover potatoes. Season
ing and a raw egg are added and the
mixture formed into a loaf, which is
covered with crumbs and baked 'with
frequent bastings of hot water until
it is brown. The result Is a real
On the D3ilng Tables.
A piece of wazed paper placed un
der the centerpiece on a polished table
will prevent the linen from adhering
to the table in hot weather, as well as
prevene a stain from cold water or an
