To begin planning now for another season of work with the chickens mav little hasty, but timely and careful consideration of improvements to be made will save work as well as means. a determination the past season to pur chase incubators and have them ready for the eggs we always want to hatch before the hens arefready for the jou. To these I want to give the benefit of some of my experience. Probably 1 have written all this in talking of in cubators at other times, but don't flat ter myself by thinking you have re aeem a Doubtless, many registered membered, and I may be able to help some one by telling of my mistakes. We have been using a 144-egg Cyphers incubator five years and have always had satisfactory hatches. These ma chines cost $25.00 and when we needed other hatches decided to try the cheap er machines, and purchased two Belle City incubators at $7 50 each. The Cyphers is a hot air machine, the Belle City is hot water heated, and one is as good hatcher as the other; the former is finely constructed and will last a life time and » easy to regulate; the latter is shipped knocked down and therefore mine ia not so well construct ed, the material is cheap and is not in surable. If one should want a hatcher for a few seasons and don't mind put ting it together, the cheap machine -vill answer. Should it be necessary v 5 purchase again I had rather buy a jedium priced machine, made enticely yj wood wsd'hot water Seated. Hatch- H< chickens is easily done; the prob- *ji ig to raise them. Many prefer the hens lor brooderB, but we can't always have hens ready. Personally, I have better success with artificial brooding, and have always used fireless brooders; I like this plan best of all lor a small number of chicks—one or two hundred -but the care of little chix is too great| with tireless brooders where many are raised. We purchased four hot water heated brooders with the Belle City incubators at $4 00 each; they proved to be useless in extremely cold weather. hatched the last week in January, 80 in number, we raised 72 beyond the danger age; the hawks got a few of these later. For three weeks at that Of the first brood time the weather was ideal, later dur ing cold, damp days it was impossible to heat the brooders, and the chix would huddle and crowd together kill ing all the weaker ones. The amount, $16.00. had best been invested in one or two good brooders. The Cyphers Incubator Co. makes a hover that nearest approaches nature; it consists of a drum, heated with hot air, that applies the heat evenly over the heads of the chicks, and a current of warmed air is constantly circulating underneath the hover, this may be attached to a homemade coop or colony house and cost about $9.00 for 100-chick size. Almost any incubator will hatch chick ens, but very few of the brooders sent with the incubators will brood them property. Get any incubotor that ap peals to your liking, but let me insist that you purchase a brooder of the hover type with regulator am' thermo* meter complete. There are other* be sides the Cyphers company that make these hover brooders, I mention them because they are the leaders of this class and give such good instructions for managing and raising chicks. With the present prospect for good cotton and corn crops it seems as if we should have a surplus for many im provements needed about the home and farm. Rain seems to be coming just when it is most needed. The cotton is loaded with grownjbolls that are be ginning to open and corn is fine. Sugar cane has made a good growth but there wa« not much planted, only en ough for home consumption. The meadows are beginning to look better, and there is a fine crop of pea vines for hay. We are having a few holidays now on ihe farms. Canning and preserving fill most of the leisure moments during the summer but a scarcity of fruit and vegetables have made impossible most work of this kind. 1 will give our plan for having a nice lot of jars of gumbo or vegetable soup packed away for winter. Prepare equal quantities of okra and tomatoes, add a smaller amount of corn, butter beans and other vegetables, add boiling water and cook two or three hours; be sure to make a big pot full and just before seasoning for the table, fill one or two quart jars with the mixture. Messrs. Robert and Drue Cade, R. E. Johnson and Sara Lee conveyed a party of twenty, in autoa, to Pinchback this week for a big fish fry.
