DEMAND FOR FAT CHICKENS
Annual Report of Prof. Grahem of On
tario Agricultural College Gives
The following Is a part of (he last
annual report of Prof. Graham of the
Oi.ta.rlo agricultural college:
"There Is an Increasing demand for
well-fatted chickens; In fact, the de
mand exceed.? the supply and dealers
find themselves forced to fatten the
thin live chickens offered In the mar
kets In onler to gel the supply of lat
ted chickens required by the trade.
Dealers Inform me they can pay high
rentals for buildings and have soar
milk or buttermilk shipped In by ex
press, and yet have a nice margin of
profit. Surely our growers could do
"During the past year t is depart
ment has had over GO different indi
viduals fatten chickens, and nearly ev
eryone has been successful. The av
erage bird sained about one pound in
two weeks' feeding Lach bird on the
average consumed lour pounds of
grain and si\ poundu of milk, for the
]>ound of gain trade Poor gains were
made from Leghorr.s, Hamburgs and
such cockerels. These birds made fair
broilers, but unsatisfactorily roasters.
TLo rati Ml used consist of one third
each of llr.ely-grour... oats, buckwheat
and corn. This was mixed to the con
sistency of pancake batter with .-our
milk or buttermilk. The birds are fed
lightly during the li st few days or un- |

which the ration is graduell-' Increas

BRONZE TURKEY IS POPULAR
French Women Make Italian Variety
Sit to Order?Bourbon Red Is
Also Great Favorite.
In England the Cambridge Bronze
turkey has been more or less popu
lar, but. Is being displaced by the
American Bronze. The Black Norfolk
Is a favorite in some sections of Great
Britain. In France the so-called Ital
ian variety is commonly kept. These
birds are much used as hatchers and
brooders of common chickens. The
peasant poultry women of France un
derstand how to make the turkey
hens sit to order and often keep them
?incubating eggs for months at a time
According to the best authority
known, the Bourbon Bed variety was
developed from the native turkeys of
Bourbon county. Ky., and have been
bred tip from what in early days was
named the Wild Yellow Turkey." The
standard weights are adult cock 30
pounds, hen H pounds, cockerel 22
pounds, pullet M pounds. This va
riety is .1 great favorite In some lo
Lawn clippings and green waste

APPLYING THEM 15 LIKE PLANT!
INTERSTATE FERTILIZERS arc made of plant foods, so mixed
that the food is available to the plant all through growth. Never is
the crop starved. The needed elements are supplied at the right
time. The crop is nourished to a full growth.
Therein lies the skill of mixing fertilizers. We make these fertilizers as accurately as a
dru^yist compounds a doct >r's prescription. The analysis on every bag is lived up to.
There is no guess work??.10 mystery,
It is but the result of scientific mixing. We must know what are the best
sources of plant foods?which are quickly available?which arc slower?which
It must Lc known exactly what elements arc drawn fiom the soil by each

_ they require. It would be utter waste
