Three different kinds of material are
used in the construction of the large
and well-equipped dairy barn that is
shown here. The foundations are of
concrete, the walls up to the floor of
the haymow are of structural tile,
and the upper part of the barn is
Concrete is used almost universally
for foundations now, no matter how
the rest of the building is built. Struc
tural tile makes a most satisfactory
wall for several reasons. Walls made
of this material are very quickly built
and the air space in the tile forms an
effective insulation against tempera
ture changes. Because of the nonab
sorbent surface of vitrified tile the
walls can be readily washed down and
kept clean. Tile is not subject to de
cay and will therefore last indefinitely,
the same as concrete.

that do not go very far above the

easy in either case.
One of the details of a barn tpat is
very important is the type of hanger
that is to be used on the sliding doors.
In a large barn such as this one there
are quite a few sliding doors, and the
best quality of material should be
used, or they will be a nuisance. The
kind that is chosen should have a
cover over the track so as to protect
it from the action of the weather and
also keep the birds out of it. It
should be strong enough so that there
will be no tendency to sag or break.
Little things like this are often con
sidered unimportant, but if a farmer
had a door break down during very
cold weather and had to nail it in po
sition to keep his stock warm until
he could fix it, he would be much more
likely to consider such little things of
The floor plan shows all the equip
ment that is necessary to do all the
work in the stable. For instance,
hydrants are placed in the stable to
handle the cleaning. This is a good
plan, because the stable will be warm
enough so that there will be very little
danger of the hydrants freezing, as
they might if they were on the out -
The study of this plan will b-e worth

Erzerum, the ancient Armenian city
which the Russians have taken from
the Turks, is, from the European point
of view, one of the most undesirable

falls to 20 degrees below zero, while

It is not the easiest. thing in the
world to so feed young chickens as to
bring them to an early and perfect
maturity and then to continue feeding
them to produce eggs and meat in the
greatest qtiantities. Too many people
let the chickens feed themselves. Oth
ers seem to think that a few handfuls
of corn thrown out night and morning
is sufficient. Unless confined in pens
where they cannot get at their natural
food chickens will manage to survive
on indifferent feeding for a long time,
but if they are to be brought to a full
Btate of perfection and if they are to
be made to produce all the eggs possi
ble and tip the beam at market time
at the highest notch, a careful study
of feeding is necessary. .
The natural food of fowls is meat,
seeds and grain. The meat they find
in bugs. and worms and the dry feed
in the seeds of grass and grain of the
range. If allowed free range and giv
en access to this in sufficient quanti
ties fowls will balance their own ra
tions and perhaps get as good results
as if fed by hand. If they are con
fined the lack of meat must be sup
plied; but it must be understood that
animal matter in the shape of meat
meal, meat scraps or cut bone is dan
gerous unless it is fed in conjunction
with other food.
It is extremely dangerous to give
fowls too much of any concentrated
food as it only renders them ravenous
and unsatisfied, and in the end results
in disease and death. Food must be
nutritious and to balance the bulk, dry
matter and animal matter must be of
proper proportion to form just the
right combination to produce health
and the best conditions for laying and

DANGEROUS FOOD FOR CHICKS
Practice of Feeding Salt to Cause
Early Molt Should Be Avoided
Unless Well Understood.
Doubtless thousands of persons who
?eep a few fowls and depend upon
the scraps from the kitchen consti
tuting the greater portion of the food
required to sustain~ them, are unaware
of the danger there is in feeding salt
food to poultry.
A very little salt is known to be
healthful for fowls, but if they re
ceive more than a very small portion,
such as might be found in oversalted
victuals, or in scraps into which some
accidentally spilled salt . had been
thrown, it will- cause ,the hens to die,
or if not sufficient to cause death, they
will be apt to molt and lose their
feathers out of season.
Some poultrykeeperis who under
stand just the quiantity : a-hien can
stand without damage, will feed a lit
tle salt early in autumn to cause the
hens to molt early, soi as to insure eggs
during the early winter months .when
eggs are scarce, This praojice in dan

many people .who have raised poultry
for years without l5eeping account of
expenses, and then turned to a sen

surprised to learn that it 'cost them
more to keep their Rocks than they
received from them. However, people
are learning how to manage poultry

although nothing will quite equal
Of course in addition to grain and
meat fowls must have plenty of grit,
granulated bone or wood charcoal at
all times. Green food in the shape of
chopped alfalfa leaves or.clover is es
sential, particularly' in the winter
when the birds do not have access to
the range. This should be kept before

fed in the -grain mixture.
Grit is absolutely necessary because
chickens cannot digest the food in
their crops without it. For this pur

or ground rock may be used. When

The difficulty of keeping the feed
clean and dry during continued ex
posure is nearly overcome by using
tr'oughs with slatted sides and broad,
detachable roofs. Build the troughs
from six to ten feet long, with the
sides five inches high. The lath slats
are two inches apart, and the troughs
are sixteen inches high from floor to
roof. The roofs project about two
inches -at the sides and effectually
keep out the rain except when high
winds prevail. The roof is very easily
removed by lifting one End and slid
ing it lengthwise. The trough can then
be filled and the roof dr'awn back
