COLONY HOUSES FOR POULTRY WHAT EVERY GARDEN NEEDS

There are several types of colon
houses, hut all should have the follow
fug feature: l'erfectly dry, freedom
from drafts, well ventilated, easy to
Hen n and mow- (this latter should be
done eery season), and, lastly, the
should be nttlHi-tlxe, but Inexpensive.
Don't crowd the chicks In the colony

most grown before they arc moed
ngulii. Have peiches removable, and
do not allow the thicks to roost until
thnlr bones have hardened up consider
ably, or they may have ciooked breast
bones. When roosts lire given, have
them at least two Inches wide.

ered, but there should be n curtain to
drop over It In bail weather. The bnl
mice of the side should be hinged so It
can be thrown open during the da,
admitting sunshine and fresh air
The "A" shaped colony house is
quite n favorite, as It combines roof
nnd two sides In one piece. It has :iNo
the added virtue of being cheap, but Is
not so easily cleaned ns some of the
Most colony houses average about
C by 8 feet In sire, with shed roof nnd

tain In front. This tpe should be
built on skids, so that they can be
easily dragged to new ground with the
aid of a horse, and, If tightly 'built,
houses of this sort can be used for lay
era and also breeders In the winter by
the addition of nests, hoppers, etc.
A word about placing the house.
Choose well drained ground that Is
covered with n heavy, sweet sod. An
old orchard Is almost Ideal, as the
trees furnish shndo during the hot
summer da.s. Clean away any brush
piles or thickets which might harbor
vermin, and If the same ground must
be used ear nfter ear lime It, plow
It down each full nnd sow with some
suitable crop which will afford green
pasture for the growing birds.

Saved Girl's Life S
"1 want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thcdford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. 1 firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one Ktwd dose of Thcdford's
Black-Draught made them break oi-t, and she has had no
nice trouble. I shall never be without
In my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thcdford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
Draught. It is a medicine of known merit. Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.
