Declares Thai There In Money and
Pleasure hi Poultry Business.
So often one hears the remark that
"there's nothing; in poultry raising"
and "chickens are more trouble than
they are \v6rth" that few people nre I
Inclined to attempt this uncertain In- ,
dustry, particularly those who live
in towns or cities. However, there are,
pleasing exceptions to the rule, one
of which may be cited le re in the city
of Laurens. While he has not amass
ed a fortune in the chicken business,
("apt. Oscar W. Babb has made some
money in addition to supplying Iiis ta
ble With chickens and eggs.
It may he worthy of note that ('apt.
Babb's chicken yard ?s scarcely more
than 30 by r,0 feet, which he has en
closed and covered .vith poultry wire.
Besides this yard he has a barley patch
adjoining, of about the sann* dimen
sions, and then a "scratch" yard of
about l.'i by 50 feet. The chickens are
turned in the barley patch for about
live minutes every day, ami are al
ways fed in the scratch yard.
Three years ago, ('apt. Bnbh bought
0 white leghorn hens from Mr. Aver
hill at the Columbia State fair, paying
$1.50 each. From Wilber brothers in
I Petros. Tenn. he purchased a white
leghorn < eck. the price of which was
$1(1.bit. Of the chickens he has raised
he saved 0 pullets and now has N
hens. Yesterday he got I 1 eggs from
1 the yard, a remarkable yield at this
! time of year: later in the spring he
! will get 12 and 13 eggs every day.
In addition to supplying his table
with eggs. ('apt. Bnbb soul GO settings
the first year, deriving from this source
about $00.00 besides the sale of $10
worth of chickens. The second year
he sold in settings for $IU and about
the same number of chickens. Aver
aging up the sales, hi" has made about
$.M> a year on chickens ami eggs, af
ter supplying his table with both.
Asked what kind of chickens he
liked the best. ('apt. Babb said:"I pre
fer the white leghorn every time, first
because it is the best laying chicken
I know of and then because it is the
; prettiest". And to see bis yard is
sufficient proof of the latter statement.
('apt. Bnbh uses an S0-Cgg incubator
and declares it very satisfactory, lie
I says that right now is the best time
of the year to raise incubator chick
ens: that they thrive now better than
at any other time: later, he says, they
will die of the white dysentery. They
must be raised now, though, with the
('apt. Babb states that his efforts at
chicken raising have been eminently
satisfactory, that there is money in
the business even on a small town lot
and that there is a peculiar pleasure
in working with pretty fowls.
Deafness Cannot he Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only oni' way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional rem
edies. Deafness is caused by an In
! flamed condition of the muscous lining
j of the Bustachlan Tube. When this
tube is Inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect bearing, and when
it is entirely closed, deafness is the
result, and unless the inflammation
can In? taken out and this tube restor
ed to its normal condition, bearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an Inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by ca
tarrh i that cannot be cured by Hall's
