H i ooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooS? $1.50 *>ets the Register a year Interesting Fart* About Poultry Raising. Fenton Gall has recently written an nteresting article for the Farm Bueau concerning poultry ra'sing, from ?hich we take the following article: j When a poultryman has been sucressful with a large flock fbr an e.tended period his methods of fccdng, ;tc., assumes an added importance [. H. Daniels, near Shenaandoah Juncion, came to the conclusion that there | s more money in poultry than in gen- I ;ral farmng and erected bn the farm i modern poultry plant, and installed j incubators. Last year his flock of J 425 White Leghorns averaged 172 . ggs per hen. His sales of eggs and fowls ambunted to S2, 673 54, an 1 he sold 4,(KX) baby chicks for $680. His Flock was increased by 150 pullets, | wh'ch at $1.50 each (a low estimrto ire worth $225. His gross returns therefore for the year from his 425 Fowls amounted to $2,073.54, and he grades and ships his qggs to eastern pnints. The highest net price received per dozen last year was 98 cents in December and the lhwest 22 cents in May. The average pr'ce for November was 87 cents and for December 85 cents. Mr. Daniels' grain ration is composed of two parts corn and one part wheat. Eight quarts per 100 hens are fed daily in a deep litter (which is renewed every two weeks). The mash consists of KM) pounds each of cornmeal, middlings, bran and meat scrap, with 30 pounds of oil meal, 8 pounds charcoal and one pound of salt. This is kept be fore the towls in selr-feed'ng hoppers, placed on platforms so that the fowls cannot scratch the litter into the feed. Moistened mash is fed at noon. Sprouted oats is fed at 1 or 2 p. m., 1 sq. in. per hen. Even on nice days in the winter t'me the fowls are kept confined until 2 to'clock, when they are turned into a lot sown to kale. Mr. Daniels has an extensive knowledge of poultry and is always glad to give anv information concerning h's methods. He has installed an electric light plant and has an ingenious home made "mixer" for the mash. It 's interesting to know the different methods of feeding used by local poultrymcn who have been successful in obtaining large egg production. The high egg record of Marion Gano's fleck was given recently. His method of feeding was unusual. He kept a commercial scratch grain before the fowls constantly instead of feeding it twice a day in a litter. He also kept a dry mash before them and fed a wet mash once a day, and also sprouted oats. He believes the high rectord attained was due in large part to the use of electric lights. Usually a flock will cat too much grain if kept constantly before them. H. T. Murphy, of Berkeley Station, has made money on poultry as a side line to his regular vocation. He has given poultry kocping much study and gets a yearly h'gh egg record from his pure-bred stock. At the time of a recent visit to his place his flock of 140 Wyandottes was giving him a daily profit of $1.70 above the cost of feed. He feeds a mash compound of 100 pounds each of corn meal, alfalfa meal, and meat scrap, w'th 200 pounds of mill feed and 00 pounds of rolled oats. This is kept before the hens in dry form and a wet n&sh is fed at noon. He also feeds sprouted oats and cabbage, the latter hung on strings to make the hens exercise. About four gallons of scratch feed two parts corn and one part wheat are fed daily in the litter, the greater part being fed in the evening. Mr. Murphy recently built a large laying house after plans drawn by himself. He buys all ?>f his feed. His total sales last year amounted to $740 and his profit, above feed expense, $228.45. "When a wet mash is used it is generally fed at noon, but J. C. Heinz, of Kearncysville, feeds it in the eve mug. ins hock or j(xi Kocks lias given a fifty per cent lay since December 10th. Last year he fed much heavier than this year and his flock gave a s'xty-five per cent lay fbr several months, lie believes the heavy feed of mash with the regulation amount of meat scrap injured his fowls and this year in the mash he is using only 15 pounds of meat scrap with 100 pounds each of corn meal, middlings and bran. He feeds a scratch feed- two-thirds corn in the nmrning and keeps the dry mash before the fowls. To keep in good condition in the winter time fowls require green feeds, such as sprouted oats, cabbage, kale, alfalfa meal, chopped alfalfa and clover hay. If cabbage >s also raised it should bg fed first, as the mangels will keep better in the cellar. Rye. wheat ?>r kale sown close to the laying house, and early enough to get a good start before winter, furnishes excellent green feed on nice days in the winter and for early spring. Sprouted oats make the best of green feeds. The oats are soaked over n'ght in warm water and then spread one-inch thick on frays with perforated bottoms and kept well watered. Many find the temperature by the kitchen stove sufficient to sprout the oats for feeding in a week's time. Each hen should be fed da'ly one square inch of the sprouted oats surface. If a hundred 'i hens are kept the trays shtould have a total surface of 700 square inches, and 100 square inches fed daily and this space again filled with soaked oats. From records covering len years in the Connecticut egg-laying contest t is known that a Leghorn will con- i sumc on the average about 75 pounds . of feed in a year and the Rocks, Reds I and Wyandottes from 85 to 90 pounds. The average price of grain and mash last year for the contest was $1.90 a hundred, and the dost of the light breeds per hen was $143, and the heavy breeds, $1.71. Allowing for the cost of oyster shell, etc., at present prices a hen can be fed a full ration throughout the year for $2 00. On the demonstration farms in th's State the feed last year cost about SI.85 per hen on the average?records for 4,534 hens. The cost of grain is less this year. Something About Ducks, Ducks arc usually mated in flocks of about 30 females with Ave or six males as the drakes do not fight one another. The number of males may be reduced to one for every seven females about the first of March, and again changed a month later to one male for eight to ten females. Active, healthy females of medium size should be used for breeding; that is, weighing about eight pounds when mature. Only mature birds should be used as breeders. Se'ect ducks with short necks, medium long bodies, flat back, and of good depth to the keel bones. Watery eyes usually are a sign of weakness in ducks. Tha drake is coarser and more masculine in appearance than the duck, and has a distinct curl in his tail feathers. Ducks should be sold, usually, after they are two years old, although the best breeders or layers may be kept over their third year, say poultry specialists in the United States Department of Agriculture. In handling ducks, pick them up by their necks, as their legs are very easily broken. Ducks lay their eggs early in the morning, and should be confined to the house or pen until 9.30 or 10 o'clock in the morning. If allowed to roam early in the morning they may lay in a pond or stream and the eggs may be lost.

How to Fail In a Dairy Business. 1 Paradoxically, sometimes the best way to show how to do a thing is to show how not to no it. Thus a West | Virginia farmer gives some rules how not to succeed w'th cows. He says: Don't weigh your milk, for then you might have to figure and think. Feed the etiws timothy hay; it is good for race horses. Cow-test'ng associations are need-1 less; they show you how to save and know. Keep the barn hot; cows arc like woodchucks. Don't have many windows in tht barn; the hired man might look out. Keep the water ice-cold; shivermg gives the cows exercise. Avoid heavy milkers; they consume too much valuable time.

Wealth Buried in an Oat Pile. Scooping oats from ? bin in a barn on his farm near Lovett, Cambria county, Pa., David Knapper Ibund an old w allet buried among the grain, j u(i?ntu, 11 nvcmca iichi>iiui>io secur:-} tics and thritt stamps to trie value of j $17,450. Investigation disclosed that the wallet was the property of John Hogentogler, who was killed t>n January 10, when a falling tree struck him on the head while he was employed on the Knapper farm. He was unmarried and had been working for Knapper for two years. Following his death, a brother,! Charles Hogentogler, was appointed ad- , ministrator of an estate consisting of a \ small piece of property, which had > been left by the dead man. Until 1 the finding of the wallet it was not I known by any other than Hogentogler , himself that he had possessed a small ' fortune. Knapper stated that he believed that Hogentogler, while employed on the farm, had used the oats bin as a j hiding place for his accumulating wealth. After the accident he did not | 'regain consciousness and consequent-J I ly could not tell anyone of his treasure. | i The old oats bin was nearly empty j ; when the well-stuffed wallet was ' found. It was turned over to Charles! Hogentogler, who lives in Portage. Lord Fairfax Takes a Bride.
