COCHIN IS SPLENDID LAYER
8econd Only to the Leghorn In the
Matter of Eggs and as TableFowl
It Is Simply Perfection.
As layers the Cochins are second
only to the Leghorn, laying good
sized eggs and lots of them. As a
table fowl It Is simply perfection, hav
ing an attractive, round, plump, yel
low carcass, with flesh fine grained,
lender and juicy. As chicks the birds
are hardy and easily raised, and
come up to broiler size in a short
time, compared with many othei
breeds, yet they make splendid moth
ers. Chicks come both light and dark
Another point In favor of this va
riety Is the fowls are strong and vig
orous. No doubt they Inherit their
vigor from the Light Brahma, which
is very strong and rugged.
ATTACHMENT FOR INCUBATOR
Electric Light Operated by Thermo

When Temperature Is Right.
A timo-savlng attachment for in
nubators that should Increase the etil

beon Invented by a Louisiana man
Chickens cannot be raised without a
great deal of attention, and the poul
try raiser who uses Incubators usually
puts In a good part of his time going
around among them to see if the tern?
lieratures are right. If there are many
of these machines and he has to con
sult the thermometer in each one It
takes time. The attachment here con
sists of an electric light on the out
aide of the Incubator and operated by
a thermostat. The light can be regu
lated to burn either weakly when the
temperature In the box Is too low or
to go out altogether, or to burn only
when the Incubator recpilres attention
Whichever way it is, the owner can
toll at a glance around his group of
hatching machines whether any nae<

Runway for Chicks.
When a large box Is used for a sum
mer coop for chicks, after they have
left the brooder or are weaned from
the hen, it should be provided with a
small Inclosed run. This run Is made
by nailing a wooden frame to the
open side of the box and covering It
on ftll sides and the top with closely
woven poultry netting. In such a
coop or colony house the chicks will
have all the fresh air they need at
night and will be otherwise protected!
and cannot escape till they are fed
in the morning.
Fresh Air Essential.
Fresh air for laying hens is Just as
essential as for young chicks. One
cannot expect to get plenty of eggs if
the hens are confined Irt.a tight house

VALUE OF PURE-BRED SIRES
Prof. E. H. Frsser of Illinois Experi
ment Station Explains This
Feature of Dairying.
The value or a good bull In the
dairy herd Is something that' dairy
farmers are now giving more attention
to. Prof. E. H. Eraser of the Illinois
experiment station has made this fea
ture of farm dairying a Btudy, and ex
plains Its benefits in this way: "ir, for
example, tho good pure bred sire im
proves the milking capacity of his
daughters by only one and one-half
pounds of milk at a milking, above the
production of their dams, this would
mean an Increase of 900 pounds of
milk for t?m ten months or 300 days
during which the ordinary cows should
give milk; they would also be much
more persistent milkers; that Is, would
give milk for a longer time In the year,
and would regain their flow of milk
better after an unavoidable shortage
of feed as In a summer drought Such
daughters may certainly be credited
on the average with 1,000 pounds more
milk por year than their dams pro
duced. At the low estimate of one dol
lar per 100 pounds this extra amount
of milk would be worth $10 per year.
Tho average cow Is a good producer
for at least six years, or until she gets
eight years oid. Each daughter having
a purebred sire will, therefore, earn
$60 more money In her lifetime be
cause of the good qualities of her sire.
It will on tho average be four years
after purchasing the sire before his
first tlaughters will have finished their
first lactation period and brought In
the first extra $10. Night dollars and
twenty-three cents kept at compound
interest for those lour years at five
per cent, will equal $10, bo a daugh
ter's improvement or increase of in
come the first year is worth $8.23 at
the time her sire Is purchased."

The best previous authentlcal year's

per day was about fourteen pounds, or
a total of 5,110 pounds during the year,
which consisted mostly of corn, oats
bran and oil meal.
Green Food for Cows.
As in the caso of cows, swine also
should be fed plenty of green food In
order to keep their digestive tracts In
the best condition. They should be
supplied with plenty of pure, cold wa
ter and an abundance of shade and
sanitary wallowing place.
Milk clean, but do not "tug" to
keep up the milk flow.
Never forget the importance of cool
ing milk in a clean place.
