FED BY MACHINERY. An Expeditious Method of Fatten ing Fowls for Market. A French Process liv Which Chickens and Docks Are Speedily Brought to High State of Perfection for the Table. ' ' There is a poultry-raising establish ment in Baltimore county at which all ffifi modern appliances for hatching and rearing chickens are in practical operation, says the Baltimore Sun, and where the "stuGng" process of feeding known for many years in France as en graissement, is used in fattening both chickens and ducks for the market. About five thousand chickens and as many ducks are annually ' fattened by Gils process at this place. The owner of this establishment is an American wio has spent many years of his life abroad, especially in France, and he has made a thorough study of the meth ods followed in the land where gastron omy has been reduced to a science and where the inner man is more assidu ously considered than anything else in Hie.. world. And it is because years of experimenting in France have proved tEat poultry fed by the process de l'en graissement are more toothsome and less expensive to the grower than poul fcy fattened by the ordinary processes ot nature that he has established this place in Baltimore county upon an al most French basis. Incubators are now by no means the curiosities they were a few years ago, when the public paid an admission fee for the privilege ot seeing one in operation. Many farmers have improved upon the old tSae more or less careless methods of raising chicks or ducklings, but there fa" no other place in Maryland where tas "stuffing? process is in vogue with all its modern, humane and economical ap pliances. The process is based upon the ethrple principle that a fowl will grow fat most rapidly when it is given the 1 maximum of food and allowed the min imum of exercise. Fowls fed by "1'en jrr&issement" are not only given all the food they can eat but all they can hold, aid they are not given any exercise. When the work of feeding fowls in tfna manner is being put in practice tcbich is not the case at this season, of , tJie.year the interior of the feeding fconse is an interesting place. It looks Eke a large prison on a small scale, Kith tier upon tier of tiny cells reach ing from the floor to the ceiling. In eaol "f these cells is a bird being pre pcrteu for market. Its quarters are rather confining, for it hasn't room to turn around in and scarcely room to rise to its feet. Running along in front of. these cages, which fit their occu pants as if they had been made to order, is a trolley track, high up near the ceil ing, and from this is suspended the feeding apparatus proper. It may, by means of weights, be put at any height, and may be moved along the trolley . Chick from one end of the building to C&a other, thus enabling the feeder to put his machine in front of any cell he may wish. . The feed, in the form of soft mush, is put in a reservoir holding a gallon or more. From the bottom of the reser voir the food runs through a rubber tube into another receptacle, the ca pacity of vjjiieh is regulated by a screw, cording to the extent of the meal fo be given to the fowls at that special feeding. From the second receptacle protrudes a tin tube about four inches long and as thick as a lead pencil, and this tube is thrust down the fowl's throat and into the craw. This done the pressure of a lever empties the con tents of the receptacle into the fowl mxi it settles down to rest, digest and grow fat until meal time comes again. The fowls do not take kindly to this method of feeding at first, but after a tsy or two of it they seem to relish its novelty and luxury, and begin to crow and cackle in anticipation as soon as Gie feeding apparatus is brought into use. L'engraissement has been practiced fa France for many years. Before the improved appliances were invented the operation was carried on in several ways. One of these, called cngraisse ment aux patons, consisted of insert ing little cakes of dough into the fowl's mouth, and foVcing them down dth the finger. In another case, eugraissement d'lentonnair, the food, Ea liquid form, was poured into the (bird through a funnel. A third meth od, still more primitive, called gavage a. la bouche, consisted in the feeder's filling his mouth with the food and blowing it down the fowl's throat. As soon after the hatching as they are j le to determine, the sexes are sep asated, and when they are three and ctce-half months old they are put in the "pens of plenty." Fowls thus treated bave been known to double in weight during their confinement in the pens. Their meat is far tenderer and sweeter Chan that of fowls raised in the ordi nary manner;, and is devoid of all ob jectionable etringiness. They are, the owner of the Baltimore county estab lishment avers, more suitable for table purposes than canons, and do not have Id be fed and cared for more than a quarter of the time that capons re quire. ANECDOTES OF THE QUEEN. She Approved of a Trouncing That Was i Administered to Wales. Apropos of the queen's recent sojourn at Balmoral a north of Scotland news paper has been gleaning from among the Deeside peasantry some new stories about her majesty's early visits to her Highland residence. One of these re lates to the boyhood of the prince of Wales, says the Scottish American. The prince on one occasion, when he had temporarily escaped from the sur- j veillance of the parental eye, played a trick on a young country lad whom he : saw approaching with a basket of eggs on his arm, the result of the trick be ing to break all or most of the eggs. ; The lad was a tough Aberdonian and i could not brook this injury, so he ! turned to and doubling his fists gave ! the prince a thrashing in spite of the latter's protest that he was the prince of Wales. "Prince an' a' though ye be," said the boy, "ye'd nae business tae break my eggs." Just then the queen appeared, having seen part of the fray. She quietly said: "You are quite right, my j lad; he had no right to break your : eggs and he richly deserves what you have given him." Her majesty after-. ward made inquiries about the boy and sent him to school at her own ex- . pense. Another story relates to her majesty's visit to the cottagers in the neighbor hood. On one occasion, when she had been making calls among the cottage women, she dropped in, on her way back to the castle, at the house of an old woman who did not know her vis itor. The old lady was both talkative ! and querulous; and, referring to a i fete at which the queen had been pre sented that day, complained about peo ple, including her own household, "running like mad to see a common clay woman." Her grievance was that she had to wait till her folks returned in order to get their tea, for she was too feeble to make it herself. TAUGHT A NEW WAY. A Trlek In Killing Turkeys That Was Not Altogether Successful. A young couple from Chicago bor rowed a farm for a week not long ago. Some friends who own a little place up in Wisconsin were going away for a visit, and they proposed that the young couple should look up their flat, bring their servant with them, and enjoy the j snap of an early winter month in the country. They went. j They know more now than they did j then. j The owner of the farm, says the Chi- i eago Times, v stayed for a day and ! showed them about, and the departing ! host showed his successor a very tricky j way of killing a turkey. Instead of chop- ! ping its head oE or wringing it in the old way he took it by the feet and snapped its head lightly against a stone, as' though it had been a whip. The spinal column was neatly broken with out any of the struggles and agonies usually attendant upon the death of a ; fowl. I The farmer forgot and locked up all i his chickens, taking the key with him. j Only one turkey gobbler was left at ; large. 1 j That night the city man took him by the feet and snapped his head against a stone. Then he took him to the cook and told her to give him a dry pluck j and let him lie in the icebox until j morning. The next morning screams ; of terror awoke the visitors. They i sprang out of bed and ran into the hall, j The cook, praying to all the saints, was stumbling up the stairs. Stalking majestically after her came the "ghost" of the gobbler, without a feather on him. He had only been stunned, and when the cool: lifted the icebox lid in the morning he had arisen in his nakedness and gobbled in her face. ' More Elegant. At the flower market in Washington are many interesting occurrences hich have nothing to do with buying flow ers, for there, as at any place where all sorts of people gather together, human nature expresses itself in odd and vary ing ways. A lady from the north, says the Youth's Companion, who was in the habit of frequenting the market to see what new floral treasures would appear from day to day, one morning spied a flower she had never before seen. "What is that?" she asked of the old colored woman who had brought it in. "That, miss?" was the reply. "That's Dutchman's breeches." Now the lady had heard the name before, and was quite aware that there was nothing funny in it. Never theless, there was something about the present moment that amused her, and she laughed. Just then a gentleman came up and the same flower attracted his attention. "What's that?" he asked of the woman. She hesitated and looked distressed. Evi dently there had been something wrong about the name before, and now she was asked to say it again. "It's it's" she stammered, "it's Dutchman's pants." No Soap, If Yon Please. It may be doubted if a tub bath in Jamaica is a luxury. The bathhouse make a brave show in a row of low brick buildings in the rear of the hotels, each little house with a big stone tank for a bath-tub. A New York Sun corre spondent says of them: I went out to see the baths on my first day in Kingston, and was sur prised to see a sign nailed against the wall bearing the words: . "Gentlemen are requested not to use soap in the baths." 1 "Why are gentlemen requested not to use soap in the baths," I asked the hotel cl::rk, a dignified young woman of dark complexion. "Because itsoils the water and makes it unpleasant for the next bather?" she said. "But do your guests all bathe in the same water?" I asked. -Oh yes," she replied. "You see the tanks are so large and the pipes are small. It takes all night to fill the tanks, and the water has to last all day." CURIOSITIES OF COMMERCE. Chinamen Use Eic Cargoes of Twine in Thoir Cues. Two or three curiosities of commerce are mentioned 'in the report of the commissioner of customs at Canton. Woolen goods, says the New York Journal of Commerce, are not much in demand in that latitide, but "woolen cord is now very largely used by the natives here for plaiting into their cues, and the importations of this arti cle are steadily increasing." The im port of kerosene oil at Canton in creased from three million gallons in 1888 to more than nine million five hundred thousand gallons in 1S01. It is peddled on the street. The empty cans serve a great variety of uses. The domestic servant delights' in them as convenient and all-embracing recepta cles, and readily fashions thcra into handy utensils for daily use. They are converted into lamps, boxes, toys for children, and all sorts of 'domestic articles. Flattened and pieced to gether one sees them generally ,used in conjunction with the usual matting as coverings for boats and sheds. They supply the packing tins in which lard and ginger are exported. "The tinware sent from here to the northern ports consists largely of lamps, boxes and various small articles made of old kero sene tins and ornamented with lacquer varnish." Evidently the shipment of oil to China in bulk is an expedient of doubtful value. WITH THE WIND, Mexican Miners Separated the Gold from the Sand. ,r Eiding near the little placer mining settlement Dolores, in New Mexico, said a returned tourist, according to the New York Sun, I saw two Mexi cans dry washing for gold, and their proceeding struck me as novel and in teresting. They were at work in a dry gulch, without a sign of water in sight, and had brought the auriferous sand in baskets to the mouth of the ravine, where the wind blew strongly down the valley. Their washing ap paratus consisted of a heavy army blanket, in the center of which they placed about a peck of the sand; then, each Mexican staking hold of the blanket by the corners, they tossed the sand high aloft again and again. The wind blew away the fini sand, while the heavier particles with the gold fell straight back into the blanket. When at last they paused there re" mained in the blanket a double hand ful of gravel and heavy sand, in which glittered a few yellow specks of gold. As we rode on my Mexican driver told me that the two men were probably making three or four dollars a day during the time they worked, but that as soon as they had made their "clean up" they would go into Santa Fe or Cerrillos, sell their gold dust and squander the last nickel they had in whisky and monte before they would go back to the gulch to work.
