ing his force made last week in the
matter of subscriptions to the liberty
bonds, the 65 regular employes hav
ing subscribed for .$8500 worth of
bonds of this last issue, to say noth

first issue. The total is considerably
higher per man than among any other
class of subscribers, even over-top

SHORT STAPLE COTTON
TAKES A TUMBLE
Early this week short staple cotton
dropped two cents per pound from
the high mark of the previous week,
but even at the prevailing price of
about 25 cents per pound means up
wards of $100 per acre, for there is
hardly a short staple field in the pro
ject that will not go a bale per acre
EGYPTIAN COTTON .
SHOWS UP WELL
Picking of the Egyptian long staple
cotton is now in full swing and those
who have pinned their faith in that
class of cotton are being amply re
warded for their faith, for the fields
are averaging almost as much as
short staple, while the price is al
most three times better.
That the Egyptian cotton culture
on Yuma Project is but in its experi
mental stage all must admit, and that
the crop is as good as it is but proves
that Yuma Project lands are especial
ly adapted to Egyptian cotton, which
will be amply demonstrated next year
and ever after. Some of the fields go
considerably over a bale per acre.

THE COLLEGE MINER.
TUCSON, Oct. 31. The college edu
cated prospector is getting more and
more numerous in the west. The Uni
versity of Arizona, on the same line
as one or two other western schools
with mining courses is offering spe
cial classes for miners and prospec
tors this year, and so far they have
proven a great success, university of
ficials say. The courses commenced
October 15 and are to run ten weeks.
Mineralogy, petrology, geology of
ore deposits, field geology, assaking
and surveying are among the courses
offered. Blowpipe tests for the more
important and not always well-known
phases of a prospector's work are be
ing taught. The course is intended
for mature students and entrance re
quirements are of the mildest.

CHICKENS RUNNING AT LARGE
Unlimited Range Is Nuisance When
Fowls Are Given Privilege of

Unlimited range has its advantages,

poultry plenty of room does not imply
that the fowls should go where they
please. A hen has no place in a sta
ble any more than a cow has the right
in a poultry house. Little by little
the droppings accumulate during the
season until everything is too filthy to
handle, and the work of cleaning will
be more than the real value of the
fowls. Keep poultry away from oth
GUINEAS AS SUMMER LAYERS
Egg Is About Two-Thirds as Large as
That of Chicken Has Decided
ly Better Flavor.
There are two different breeds of
guineas, the white and the pearl. Both
breeds are excellent summer layers,
and the eggs are of superior quality.
The guinea egg is about two-thirds as
large as the hen egg, and has a de
cidedly better flavor. The guinea hen
begins to lay as soon as the weather
gets warm in the spring. If they are
well fed during the winter they will
begin to lay earlier than If they are
only half fed through the winter.
If there are as many male birds in
the flock as there are hens they will
mate off in pairs, but if only a few
male birds are kept several hens will
mate with one male and all or near
ly all of them will lay in the same
nest. Most guinea raisers recommend
keeping one male bird for every five
hens; we kept only two male birds
with 20 hens last year and the
eggs hatched as well as they did when
we kept more males. The fewer
male birds that are kept in the flock,
the. less quarrelsome they are.
HEN IS THE BIGGEST EATER
Fowl Turns Out More Food, Accord
ing to Weight, Than Best Dairy
Cow Marvel of Efficiency.
The hen is the biggest eater of all
domestic animals. A three and one-
half pound hen, according to Doctor
Rice of Cornell, Till eat 110 pounds of
food in a year. She will lay 30 pounds
of eggs, or perhaps more. Eggs are
highly concentrated food, and the hen
that transforms a hundred pounds of
bran, grass, grain and gravel, and
other -scraps into one-third their weight
of fresh eggs, is a marvel of efficiency.
The hen therefore turns out more food,
according to her weight, than the best
TO BREAK HENS FROM SITTING
Walt Until She Gets Well Settled
Then Place Her in Open Coop
Soon Forgets Desire.
To break a hen from sitting let her
sit a day or two until she gets well
settled, then put her, preferably with
two or more other hens, into an open
coop in full view of the poultry yard,
where she can see her free sisters
scratching around enjoying themselves.
Hens are jealous creatures and a sit
ting hen placed in such a position and
well fed, soon forgets her desire to sit,
and when given her freedom on tha
morning of the fourth or fifth day she
wiii nappuy resume the duties of hen,
