Miller, of Auckland, New Zealand, broker for the California Almond Growers' Exchange, has ar rived in San Francisco and he re ports that business conditions In New Zealand are in a most healthy state. The exports for 1919 amounted to $266,703,710. The imports for 1919 amounted to $153,358,490. This year (1920) everything points to even a better season than last, as shipping facilities have im proved considerably and New Zea land is now able to export surplus stocks of frozen lamb, mutton, beet and cold-stored butter and cheese. There are also considerable quanti ties of wool, hides, sheepskins, tal low, flax, and timber awaiting ex port, and the value of these com modities is estimated to be more than the exports for last year The banking returns for the March 1920 quarter reveals a more plentiful supply of money than eve* - before. The surplus of deposits ex ceeded $90,000,000 for the three months of this year. The imports into New Zealand for the quarter ending March 31, 1920, amounted to $5 0,000,000, compris ing dry goods, hardware, foodstuffs, beverages and miscellaneous, the latter showing considerable growth over previous years, and motor ve hicles comprising the greatest growth of all. In three months they totaled 4,005. The population of New Zealand is 1,136,400. IST RATIONS FOB FLOCK FACTOR IN EGG PRGCUCTiON LIEI.s I'e.L \lliinu! Pi-oleiii I'IIIMI, in Yddition to Grain and Green Feed, I.ay 'l.tn.i 'lore I'.ggs Than l-'ioc!. That Docs Not Have It. Kv.'ii Mrs. Biddy is not allowed t.> loaf im the job nowadays. If she does, a production expert is called ia to see what the trouble is, for I:I longer is the number of eggs she lays ascribed to luck. Many factors enter into egg pro duction and much experimenting has been done to determine the results of feeding various foods. In the fall of lb It! tho United States Depaitiuent of Agriculture started experiments on the Government poultry farm to determine the effect of certain foods on egg production. Six pens of pul lets, containing 30 birds apiece, we;a used in the experiments. The object of the test was to find out what com bination of simple rations, composed of feeds generally available on farms throughout the country, would give the most economical egg production. Some of the pens were kept on j free range, while all of the confined j : pens had large yardage. The hens I l on free range were given farm con- j ditions as nearly normal as possible. : ! Scratch feed was fed twice a day, ; early in the morning and late in the afternoon. A dry mash was kept in ! a simple open-feed hopper before the' hens all tho time. The feeding tests were repeated j I other years, under different condi-j i tions, to eliminate as far as possible errors due to the difference in indi vidual birds. All the experiments were carried through for more than a year. \ One of the most interesting expert -1 ments, and one of wide-reaching in: portance to the general farmer, proved 'the value of. feeding meat scrap, ot some product of this nature, to the farm flock. Little meat feed, milk, j fish, or any animal protein food Is fed to the poultry flock on the aver age farm, and as a result very few i eggs are gathered during the late | fall and winter when eggs are high I priced. ] The experimental flocks which i were on feed range were given a j mash of corn meal, bran, and mid | lings, and ascratch mixture of wheat, I oats, and corn. This is a greater <variey of grains than is used by many farmers for their poultry. With ab solutely free range on land where there was a good chance to pick up bugs, green feed and worms, the birds were able to add much variety to their diet. Other pens were given the same ration, but with 1 pound of commercial meat scrap added to every 4 pounds of the mash. Here is the big fact which was brought out: The flock which had no meat scrap laid on an average 90 eggs apiece during the year. This is more eggs to the hen than the average farm flock lays. The pens which received meat scrap averaged from 125 to 150 eggs apiece. Meat scrap is not produced on a farm and costs more than grain food, but even at the higher price it pro duces eggs several cents a dozen cheaper than where no meat scrap is fed. Milk products will give as good results in increasing egg production in the winter as meat scrap: but of the farmer does not have milk tn feed, it will pay him to buy commet cial meat scrap or tankage for his flock. ' WOMEN MAKE OWN DRESS FORMS AT HOME CHEAPLY Supplied \ec<l Ijong Kelt l>>' Farm Women Who Make Their Own Clothes. Every woman who makes garments for herself longs for a dress form, if she does not alredy possess one, and, if she does, she regards it as one of the most necessary pieces of sewing equipment that she has. It is verv difficult to fit oneself. When the arms are moved to change a pin or a bast ing which needs adjusting, the fit of the whole garment is changed, and the fitter does not know where the right place is for the seam or the trimming. A dress form or Betty, as it is often cared, does ;• .vay .itl! this difficulty, but because of tho e\ pense of the. commercial ones few women in the past have felt they could afford to own one. Garment-making clubs are anion" the most popular of the many organ ized by the home demonstration agents who are sent out by the United States Department of Agriculture, and their members are learning easiei and better ways of dress-making, the extension workers soon discovered that the farm woman who attempts to do part or all of her own sewing —and the majority of them do— en counters the most difficulty in fitting • '-if- g;'.rrie\t .4u-1 iiljii- ii'S the Iritn -111 i 11K. \Vl::it she needs is a dress form. ar.

To"-da> thousands of those home made dress forms are in use in tit" rural and small town homes of tins country. In Merrimae County. N. I! 17 communities have been organized or have organized themselves for the purpose of making dress forms This means that the majority of w.ometi in that county will have one of these coin eniences. At present four kinds of dress forms are being used. The first is the most expensive, and is made wiiii a commercial dress form and a l.n ing to fit all the lines of the wearer's figure. The lining is adjusted over the dress form, and stuffing is put in between the lining and the form until the lining is tightly filled. Another variety is made by stuffing a tight fitting lining with excelsior, cotton, or some like substance. This is not as satisfactory as it might be, for great care must be exercised to give the dress form the right lines and it loses its shape more or less rapidly. A third method is to cover a tigh l .- fitting lining, while it is on its owner, with plaster of Paris; this is allowed to harden and the whole Is then care fully removed. The lining should have ati opening down the front. Stuffing is then put in until it is firm.
