URGES HER BREEDING
FOR LAYING OF E6GS
Half an egg a day is the average to
which every industrious and self-respecting
hen ought to attain, accord
ing to flie University of California.
Trap-nests are the means the Uni
versity now recommends for hasten
ing the coming of the golden age when
I the boarder hen shall be exterminated
' and every hen shall average at least
1 ISO eggs-per annum.
This home-made trap-nest' closes
when a hen enters to lay an egg. Thus
accurate record can be kept of the pro
duction of individual hens. Hence the
poultry-raiser can incubate only eggs
from hens with a high record as egg
producers, mated with well-grown, anu
sturdy roosters whose mothers were
naturally prolific layers. The result
of such selection on sound eugenic
principles is rapid improvement of the
natural laying capacity of the flock.
The trap-nest makes it easy, also, to
discover and eliminate the hen which
does not earn her own keep.
How every poultry-grower may very
cheaply and easily, with his own ham
mer and. saw, make trap nests for his5
poultry yards,- is told by J. E. Dough
erty, associate professor of poultry
husbandry, and W. E. Lloyd, assistant
in paultry husbandry at the university
farm, in a publication on "Practical
and Inexpensive Poultry Appliances"

PARIS, Nov. 18. Paris is i&lio dan
ger of shivering this winter, though it
will' have to pay rather dearly for its
warmth. Monsieur Marcel Sembat,
minister of public works, assures the
public that there will be plenty of
coal available and supports his views
with a few conclusive statistics.
France consumed' sixty million tons
of coal a year before the war; 10 mil
lion tons of it came from Great
Britain and 10 million from Belgium
and Germany. The latter markets are
now closed to her but her consump
tion has decreased from 60 million to
40 million tons by reason of the Ger
mon occupation of the industrial re
gions of the north and east. Her coal
'prqduction has diminished in the same
ratio being 20 million tons as. against
40 million tons, so she has to depend
on Great Britain , and the United
States for the 20 million tons that she

which were less than a million tons,
a month a year ago, rose to 1,800,000
tons in August. Statistics of subse
quent receipts are incomplete but it
is thought that they exceed two mil
lion tons, per month, sufficient to meet
current needs and accumulate a small
Coal prices have shown no response
to the increased receipts. The best
qualities are firm at tvpnty dollars a

(By B. F. Fly)
At 6:30 this morning I re
ceived news trom Mexican to
the following effect:
Gen. Obregon, represent
ing the Carranza de v facto
government, has two repre
sentatives in Calexico for the
purpose of reaching an ami
cable agreement with Gov.
Cantu.' Gov. Cantu has con
ferred freely with them and
has agreed to asettlement

confiscation of property of
those who have upheld Gov.
Fourth : Cantu must con
tinue to act as governor-general
of Lower California un
til a regular constitutional
Fifth: All funds tied up
in Calexico banks must be at
once released so Cantu can
distribute it pro rata among
Upon the acceptance of these propo
sitions, Governor General Cantu will
fall in line with the United States and
recognize CarranzS; but not until then
just as I outlined in these columns
This conference clearly shows that
Carranza has recognized Cantu, which
should have been done the day the
United States recognized Carranza, and
that would at once have settled the
whole question, so far as IxDwer Cali
fornia is concerned; and such a recog
nition on the part of Carranza would
have but given due credit to Governor
Cantu's excellent administration.
Carranza's tardy recognition, how
ever shows that the First Chief has
come to his senses, and it is always
better late than never.
