WHEN THE FOWLS ARE ILL.
S. M. Shipley, Seattle, Wash.
Many remedies can be resorted to in cases of simple colds.
Symptoms—Eyes water, nostrils! discharge offensive liquid
which thickens as stages of cold advance; face becomes swollen
even to closing of one or both eyes.
Common treatment—Cleanse the nostril and cleft in roof
cl" mouth with soft cloth or feather, then inject into both a
mixture of sweet oil and kerosene, equal parts, a drop of
carbolic acid will help the remedy. Also thoroughly annoint
the face and comb with mixture. Vaseline is very valuable
tor application to face, eyes and comb, and will frequently
cure a bad cold without any other remedy being used. Dur
ing period of treatment feed soft food only. A two-grain
j.tllit of quinine at night for two or three days will be found
oti'ective. Another simple remedy is to take shallow dish,
fill with warm water, then pour in enough coal oil to form
scum over surface. Into this submerge head of fowl, so the
water and oil will cover face, eyes and comb. Wipe dry and
rub on vaseline.
Roup—The bird will show a purulent condition of throat,
nostrils and usually eyes also. Breath very offensive. Loss
of appetite. Usually attendant with difficult breathing, the
bird sneezing and making loud noise, particularly after going
Treatment —Chopping block the best and most effective, as
a roupy bird is never a safe breeder. Keep bird warm and
diy, and to each pint of drinking water add teaspoonful of
chloride of iron. Two or three times a day blow sulphur into
thi oat. Swabbing mouth and throat with kerosene is also
effective. General treatment about the same as given above
SPOKANE POULTRY SHOW.
The Spokane Poultry and Pet Stock Association will hold
its third annual show January 11-15, 1898, inclusive. We
want to make it excel all its predecessors, and to do so some
hard work will be required. Last pear's show was conceded
to be one of the best held in the West, and the interest cre
ated then has greatly increased. We propose to give cash
prizes amounting in all to about $400, besides other special
premiums, including the $150 silver Wetzel cup, which has to
b«, won three years in succession by the same breeder with
ti-e same breed of birds.
We are also making the dressed poultry and egg exhibit a
special feature of the show so as to encourage farmers to
breed and dealers to buy nothing but thoroughbred poultry
in place of the scrubs we now get in our markets here.
We expect to get birds from Oregon, Idaho, Washington
jiixd British Columbia, and I think I may safely say that we
shall have from 800 to 1,000 entries as with our cash and
special premiums will be ample inducement to any breeder
to bring a good string of his best birds. The popular judge,
1. K. Felch, of Natick, Mass., will score the birds, and we
cordially invite all fanciers to be with us as we will make
every effort to treat all fairly.
For information as to entries, etc., apply to

Cherries and peaches pay so well in Vineland and other
parts of Lewiston valley that some of the expert fruit grow
ers are cutting out their apple orchards and substituting
cherries and peaches. This is not to be wondered at, when
the Chicago fruit handlers say that the cherries from that
locality are the best grown in America, and that when
grown, selected, picked and packed in a first class menner
will readily bring 20 cents per pound wholesale, as an aver
age price. The promotors of Vineland claim that an
orchard of such fruits is more certain than a mine in the
Klondike, and far more profitable than an orange orchard in
California or Florida.
