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

fifteen, and Mr. Avery plans to Increase the

Mr. Av<-ry called out on the floor a brood of

"You see, these are Christian chickens." he said.
Then he nted out th^ dainty galleries around
the upper part of the chicken boose. "We have
Inmates here who can build anything from a
