A model chicken farm has been erected prin cipally by the labor of Mr. Avery*s own hands, where fine breeds of chickens occupy separate yanis. There are golden and white Wyandottes, blark Minorcas, white and brown Leghorns and Plymouth Rocks, each with a metal band and date mark on its leg and a blue ribbon jt>. ord.

Some of these men remain here just as long as we mn spare a room to them, for they realize the b> nefit of regular hours for eating, sleeping, and exercising. Here everything is done by clock work.
