Eggs saved for hatching should not be subjected to high or low tempera tures. Dest results are usually ob tained by keeping them in a moder ately cool place about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. It is not advisable to hold hatching eggs longer than ten days or two weeks., February, March and April are the best months for hatching. FUL-O-PEP.

On account of tho shortage of potash for fertilizer-' '.ho quitlon has been raised whether common sa'.t cannot be useda a substitute. Tho most e.ten slvo experiments in this country show that .suit inn) take the place f potash to a limited extent for certain crops nVid on certain soils. Mangels, turnips and rridlMio.s may be benefited by its use. The staple ciops, including pota toes, wheat and corn, would probably not ls greatly benefited. However, good results are not to bo expected on all "soils, fine unfavorable condition Is acidity of tUc soil, and the effect of salt on such Mills would be to aggravate this sour condition. In western New York, where salt was cheap, it was used in carload lots, sprinkled liehtly over a calcareous Mill "ihtt was kept well limed, l.lme at that time was also cheap, but the prices re ceived for the crops were much leps than the prices now received b) grow ers. The ioil was somewhat heavy and had been lightened by heavy applica tion of manure tor several years and egetable refuse of all kinds. It was well drained by a scries of tile drains and open ditches. On this land crops of gladioli, zinnias, lilies, coin and various vegetables and J flowering plants were grown. Sulphur was sometimes used, sprin kled lightly over the soil.
