S: Gorline. There is an editor-man over in Marsellcs who has dyspepsia some of the time and a good hen-paper most of the time. Well, this same cd'tor man is publishing a series of articles en the care of little chicks which he is pleased to term "A Symposium." This word is derived from "sym," meaning some, and "posium," gena tivc, plural of the Latin word posius, meaning pumpkins. (I trust the edi tor will take no exceptions to my ' very literal rendering.) Symposium, then, means literally some pumpkins, and is the correct word when applied to the- care of baby chicks, for if there is any specific part of poultry culture in which "some pumpkins" is necessary, it is the care of chicks for the first thirty days of their ex istence. It is the consensus of opinion of poultrymcn in general, that a thous and chicks arc hatched for every one that is brought to maturity, and if the mortality were any greater, I am sure they would have said so. Be this as it may, every1 experienced poultry raiser knows that the mor tality is frightful, and notwithstand- ing such appalling losses, many peo ple have found the raising of poul try profitable. If there is any way to prevent this great mortality, how important it is that very one inter ested should make a study of this branch of the business. The modern poultryman is equipp ed with one or more incubators that will hatch a large per ccntagc of fer tile eggs and we have observed brood after brood brought off that were the equal in every respect of the best hen hatched chicks. In twelve hours time, or maybe in twenty-four or even thirty-six hours, the chicks were transferred to a brooder, given a light feed and rut to bed. During the doys following the chicks arc per mitted to run about the nursery, if they choose, drink when they wish and perhaps eat when they want to. Vuout the third or fourth night about nine o'clock, or later, if we listen rwar the brooder we are more than likely to hear a peculiar twitter in a prolonged tr mule from some unfor tunate chick. To the cxpcricncd, the story is pathetic and soon told; the poor little beggar is constipated, or the vent is closed with a sticky sub stance that has dried and the chick is vainly trying to clear itself. In two or three days, we begin to take out the dead ones, and when the fatal tenth day is reached, who can guess how many will live to be counted. IVaybc twenty-five per cent, maybe less. Fortunate indeed is he who can ) I count fifty per cent, and seventy-five per cent is really wonderful. Do yoi J J think that I have over drawn the ' picture? Inquire around among your acquaintances and gather the facts for yourself. The hen-papers arc full of the cause of white diarrhoea and the best remedies, and we read learn ed discourses on microbes and how to fumigate the incubators "before and after," and all the time we have overlooked the real cousc of mortali ty among the chicks, namely the I brooder. You sec, I want to put the j blame where I know it belongs, an J before I get through, I will endeavor to prove it to you. Our manufactur ers seem to have vcd with each other as to who would produce a ma chine for hatching that would show the best results, and to that end have expended thousands of dollars in ex perimental work, with the result that many machines arc now on the mar ket that will actually equal the hen under most favorable conditions and that will hatch more and better chicks ! than tjic average hen, under average ; conditions. This is a state of affairs 1 that should be remedied by some specialist backed with ample capital who will be able to construct a truty closc-to-naturc brooder. So much for the brooders. Tak. the average hen; she may hatch ten c twelve or even fifteen nice chicks, but how many will, she raise? What is your experience? Maybe nine or ten; more likely five or six, and if she is a real foolish hen, as many hens are, maybe three and sometimes even one. Again the brooding is at fault, just as surely as it was with the hot box to which you consigned your incubator - chicks, only in this case it was more likoly a cold box I WRITF 115 BEFORE YOU BUY ELECTRICAL Qlirlfcfl P Jt.
