NEW WAY 10 RAISE CHICKENS There Are Other Means of Hatching KgiC Than Netting .Items or Hay ing i:iwmslve American Incubators I'tilvorslty of Oregon, Eugene, How his rival In the egg business gets the hatching done may be of In terest to the egg producer of Oregon. For the orthodox two ways in Oregon those of setting a hen or buying an Incubator -are often too expensive for the Oregonlan's rival, who there upon haa recourse to one of several methods. The rival la the Chinaman, who in cemmerce: Old women sometimes do the batching In one poverty-stricken dis trict near Chefoo. They strap eggs about their waists under tbelr outer garments and carry them till the chickens come. This method Is to save fuel. In interior districts near Amoy, un husked rice Is roasted and a three Inch layer Is spread while lukewarm In the bottom of a tub. One hundred 'eggs are laid In the rice. Alternate layers or two Inchea of rice and of ' 100 eggs are then spread until there are 500 agga In the tub. After 14 I hours the eggs are taken out and the 'rice reheated. When put bark oenter eggs go to the oytsldo and layers hlfted. This great labor comes to a climax when the Chinaman la en deavoring to keep the hatching brood from smothering under the rice. In the province of Shangtung, eggs are put In earthenware Jars, which ra ""l UDOn be,lH of ,,rlcK nd clay In which alow tires burn. The eggs j are frequently turned. The consul at Hankow reports a method he aaya la thouaanda of years "'l In buildings r.O feet long and 16 feeLjsvlde kongs are placed along the sides, each holding about 100 dozens of eggs.
