POULTRY NOTES. It is aboui Arne to-start to trrin or prepare the birds for the fall shows. The bird that is pro perly trained and washed beforehand stands a much better chance of winning a premium than -joaie that is packed off to the show all covered with dirt. Do not go into the poultry business. Grow into it. Start on a small scale and learn the de tails of the business before you invest much cap- ital in It. When th& hens stou toÄhe v often Maurlti&v started again I5y ä cnange of feed; but do tfot give tnem mucn corn in summer, unless, oi course, you have them cooped up for fattening. Air-slacked lime dusted everywhere will aid materially in destroying lice, gapes and roup. Prevent disease in your flocks rather than risk curing them after they become affected. Keep tlie quarters clean and supply pure water. It is possible for chickens to live without any animal matter, but to obtain the most profit from them it is necessary that they receive a certain amount of animal food daily, especially if they axe confined p runs or during the win ter This may be either raw or cooked fresh meat, or else it may be commercial beef scraps. We could not think of a more simple or effi cient method of improving the egg supply of this country than the production of infertile eggs. Do not forget that your fowls need green fobd. If it is impossible to give them a change ofF yards or runs, see that they get some kind of; green iood during the daily teed. TWO NOTED AUTHORITIES ON ALFALFA J3 In speaking of his experience in the growing of alfalfa, the Hon. A. P. Grout of Winchester, 111., one of the largest alfalfa growers in the state, has this to say: "My success at first in growing al falfa was not startling, hut on the contrary I met with many discourage ments. Had it not been for the dod dies, (sheep and hogs) that seemed so fond of it, and thrived bo weU on the small quantities I was able to furnish them, it is doubtful if I would have kept up the struggle. A knowledge of its wonderful feeding value gained by experience was the incentive that urged me on. The time has come in my. experi ence, and I believe in the experience of every alfalfa grower when just as knowledge of alfalfa, and encourage its cultivation and use by the farmers of Illinoii. To be xinstrumental in bringing into general use a plant which will add untold wealth, not only to the farny but to every other in terest, will be far more creditable and more deterring of honor than that usually corded for any public ser vice." f Joe Wing Btlleves in Alfalfa. Joseph E. Wing of Ohio, who haa 160 acres of alfalfa, and who is one of the best known authorities on this crop in the United States, says: "Alfalfa Is a perennial enduring on well drained soil from five to fifty years with one sowing. It may bo cut from three. to .five times a year, and will yield In the region of the ENGLISH BEAUTY CUP. js puiceu on me top ; - . , . , Chinese fashion.

It is a well-established fact that the flavor of eggs will olten depend upon the kind of feed the hön receives. For this reason we should feed very few onions to the hens for green food. If the chickens that you intend to exhibit could have as much time in the coops before the show as in the show, they would pose much bet ter for the judge and would be in better condi tion, providing, of course, that they are fed right. ; A Huntingburg Chicken.

I advise those who consult iru upon the tired complexion to in dulge in what is called the English beauty cup. .Mr. Gladstone took it each niht of his life as ionsr as he had health, and it is tbe cup which keeps many an lOnglish beauty go ing. It is simply tea, but tea inadf without the nerve ,cle?troviucr at tributes. If propei.. .made it in vites sleep. You take half a small cofTee spoon of tea, andjou scatter it in the bottom of .a r. very large cup. The German cofleß- cups are best for this purpose. Over this yei; ter as, the cup will hold.

You take three very thin slices of lemon, and you lay them in a big hot cup. On top of the slices of lemon you place a bi? maraschino, and- Ibon on top of all you pour in the a, putting it through a strainer, j The result will be a fine, weak, hot. mt healthful cup of tea with just the right flavor of lemon. You can have sugar if you want it, and Gladstone's rule of three big lumps will, do you no harm, for sugar is 0 great builder up of the muscles. 5y the way, if you are fagged out, day or night, trj eating a little sugar.

First Summer Girl No. I mean ttu No flay So Good as Alfalfa. There is no other hay bo good as aV falfa for all kinds of live stock, and for horses and hogs alfalfa is invalu able, either as a hay, a soiling crop, or a pasture. It excels as a hog pas ture, and, with hogs, makes one of the most profitable farm combinations. An alfalfa field is said to be a hog's idea of heaven. In root growth alfalfa resembles red closer, but sends down a stronger tap root. When properly handled it pro duces three or four cuttings each year and remains productive for many years. Land which is adapted to red clover usually grows alfalfa when any lack of Inoculation and of lime ia supplied.

Once for that cause hi lived on stewed chops and rice for luncheon and dinner, with .tea, for & couple of 3'ears, but ordinarily he was a great feeder. "I recollect' said his friend, Dr. Cooper Bentham, "on one occasion Reynolds came to see him. Jenner was at dinner. He had soup, fish, the greater part of a chicken, and he was in the middle of a huge rice pudding when Eeynolds entered-and asked him how he was.
