Guinea Raising Is
Quite Profitable
Substituted in Fashionable
Hotels for Various Kinds
of Game Birds.
(Prepares b r the United Stetee Department
of AertcBltnrc.)
Guinea raising la becoming more
profitable as a result of their success
ful substitution In fashionable hotels
and eating places for such gam# birds
as grouse, quail and panridge, says
the United Stares Department of Ag
riculture. When well cooked, guineas
are attractive to appearance, although
darker than common fowl, and the
flesh of young birds Is tender and of
especially fine flavor, resembling that
of wild game. The census figures
show an increase of §6 per cent In the
number of guinea fowl on farms in
1830 over the number In 1910.
Raise in Smalt Flocks.
A few of the large poultry raisers,
particularly those within easy reach
of the large eastern markets, make a
practice of raising a hundred or so
guineas each year, but the great major
ity of guineas are raised In small
flocks of from 10 to 25 on the farms of
the Middle West and of the South.
The highest prices for guineas are
paid in the large eastern markets.
Poultrymen who are near these mar
kets, or who have developed a trade
among private customers, receive
prices that make this Industry very
profitable. Wholesale prices In New
York usually range from SI to $1.00
per pair for dressed spring guineas.
They are marketed late In the summer
when they weigh from one to one and
one-half ponnds when two and one-half
months of age, and also throughout tbs
fall, when the demand la for heavier
Guinea hens nsnally begin to lay in
April or May, those in the South lay
ing earlier than those In the Itarth.
From 20 to SO, and often more eggs,
•re laid before the guinea hen be
comes broody, at which time she can
be broken of her broodlnesa easily by
removing the eggs from the nest, when
she will soon begin laying again. If
not allowed to alt guinea bens will
continue to lay throughout the sum
mer, laying from 40 to 60. and In some
caaea 100 eggs daring the season.
Persistent Layers.
As profitable egg producers guinea
hens cannot compete with ordinary
hens, but during the latter part of the
spring and during the summed they
are persistent layers. The eggs are
smaller than ben's eggs and conse
quently bring lower prices, being
graded aa small eggs. The chief claim
to profitableness on the farm la the
demand for the fowl by the eastern
markets for supplying the hotel de
mand for a wild game substitute
Thsir noisy, never-ending, harsh cry
which Is often cause for their unpopu
larity on the farm la really a point
In favor of
they are excellent sentries, giving
warning of maraudera In the poultry
yard. Their pugnacious disposition,
while sometimes causing disturbances
among other poultry, also makes them
show fight against hawks and other
common enemies, so that guineas some
times are kept as gnards over the
poultry yard.
Cooperative Marketing
by Live Stock Raisers
A gain of $1.28 per head was recent
ly made by the members of a co-opera
tive live stock shipping association
one of the Southern states as a result
of shipping a single load of sheep and
Iambs co-operatively instead of selling
to country buyer* A report to the bu
reau of markets and crop estimates of
the United States Department of Ag
riculture shows that the load of sheep
and lambs brought $475.47 more on the
market than local buyers bid for the
The total com of shipping amounted
to $208.02, resulting In a net gain on
the carload, consisting of 229 head, of
$267.45. or $1.23 per bead. This, of
course, does not take Into account any
profits that may have accrued purely
as a matter of production. The fol

Apparatus Separates
Parasites From Soi
Ingenious Flotation Device
of Dr. Cobb Is Valuable.
<Pr*Dby tb* ObI«* 4 StitM D*p&rtmMM
of Asrleullaro.) _
In studying the nemas which oM
In the soil and which. In many cases
cause diseases of plants such as root
knot and certain rota, there has been
much difficulty In aeparatlng the or
ganisms from the soli. Most of these
threadlike parasites are extremely
small and cannot be picked out by
ordinary methods ; neither can they
be washed out readily. However, Dr.
N. A. Cobb of the United States De
partment of Agriculture has devised
an Ingenious flotation apparatus
which affords valuable aid In remov
ing nemas from a sample of soil.
The apparatus consists essentially
of a hollow cylinder several Inches In
diameter and three or four fleet high,
tapering for about a foot to a small
opening at the bottom and provided
with a spout near the top. This cyl
inder Is fastened to a circular rout
ing table or frame which Is turned
at a moderate speed by a motor while
nema-free water Is run In from the
bottom by turning a graduated tip.
The soil sample la mixed with a small
quantity of water and then poured
quickly Into the rotating cylinder when
It la about a quarter full of water.
The rotation destroys any disturbing
up-and-down currents which might in
terfere with the separation, as in some
ore separating machines.
Nemas sink very slowly and the
rise of the water Is eo regulated by
tha Up that It will a little more than
counteract their fall. Aa a result the
soil particles which are heavier sink
to the bottom and the nemas are lifted
to the top. When the rising column of
muddy water reaches the upper open
ing It Is spouted with the contained
nemas into a vessel set on the rotating
table to catch the overflow. When all
the nemas are collected In this ves
sel they are allowed to aettle to tha
bottom. The water la drawn off and
a slimy mass containing the nemas
In much greater concentration Is found
in the bottom. They may then be re
moved and examined nnder the micro
scope. By this method also the num
ber of nemaa In a given quantity of
soli may be estimated.
Mississippi Girls Work
for Pure Bred Poultry
Pure bred poultry *■ receiving en
couragement In Mississippi through
the Interest of a leading merchant In
Laurel. Jones county, who gave twen
ty settings of pure bred Rhode Island
Red eggs to twenty "4H" poultry
club members. These girls were re
quired to rglse as many as possible of
the chicks batched and keep mil ex
cept one pullet, which was returned
to the donor. The twenty pullets
which came back were made into live
pens, to each of which a cock was
added. The five pens were then given
to five other girls In tha county, who
were to own the chicken*. Bach of
these girls, however, promised to
send In a setting of eggs to be dis
tributed In turn to other glrla
Eighteen of the original girls suc
ceeded with the project, according to
a report received by the United States
Department of Agriculture. Tha two
who failed were allowed to try again.
This plan has proved an excellent
means of Interesting dub girls lh tbs

many of their neighbors have also be

Cropping System Helped
* by Growing Soy Beans
Soy beans as à soil building crop
which would also furnish an econom

Indicates that they found it a val

tens. Five year* ago, according to re
ports to the United States Depart
