The Poultry Yard
Market the surplus stock. The caponizing season is now ended. Peter Tumbledown's growing stock are runts. , If we have not access to road dust, we may take some field earth fine and free from lumps. , There are several signs that in dicate good health a bright red comb, activity, readiness for food, and a glossy arjd smooth apper ance of the feathers. The new roads have made it a little more difficult for some of us to get dust for our chicks, but al most always there are little places where we can find some. Under no circumstances should an unhealthy bird be allowed a place in the breeding pen, since such can not fail to have an ex tremely injurious effect on the progeny. I like the wire nests in the hen house. I have thrown awav the bulky insect-harboring wooden boxes. One can put three wire nests tn the space usually occupied by a wooden box, and there is not a place in or around the wire nests for the mites to live. Place the pullets in their winter quarters before they start laying. It gives them a good chance to be come acquainted with their new home. Place a china egg in each nest so as to guide them to the proper place to lay their eggs when they get ready. This month April-hatched pullets should be gin laying. "When the crop becomes very large and the fowls show signs of the disease, keep them away from all food, allowing only water, for forty-eight hours. Then give them all they will eat of finely chopped onions, allowing them nothing else but water for several hours more, or until they show they are relieved. 1 have never known the remedy to fail.

I chose Barred Plymouth Rocks and Black Lang shans. I raised on an average of 700 head of these breeds of chick ens each year and am able to sell them at from $1 to $10 each for breeding purposes. I spend most of my time farm ing, raising wheat, milo maize and Kafir, and have not attempted any great venture in the poultry busi ness, but I do believe a map can make good money at it. I raise about 100 head of turkeys each year. Turkeys do exceptional,? well on these western prairies. I found that Kafir', milo maize and wheat are the best feeds. Tur keys nei the advantage of the grasshoppers each season, and this feed does not cost much. The Liberal district has excep tional advantages over the east for the poultrybusiness. The climate is conducive to the health of the birds, ,there being practically no loss among the chickens, and very little among ihe turkeys. J .W. Anders. Liberal, Kan.
