Fifty Hens Will Pay as Much Profit as a Cow, With Less Labor and Expense Etc. But few persons realize how great is the profit derived from poultry, and in order to give some idea of the importance of the hen we will compare her with the cow. A good cow is worth not less than $50, but she will seldom pay a profit over and above all expenses amounting to 350 ; but we will be liberal with the cow and credit her with 100 per cent, profit. This is allowed after charging her with her feed, her quarters and the labor neces sary for her care. She requires about three acres of ground, the profit being $16.67 per acre. The hen is valued at 75 cents, and estimating that she lays nine dozen eggs a vear, at 15 cents a dozen on an average, she returns $1.35. As it may cost $1 to pay for her feed and quarters, she gives a profit of only 35 cents, or a traction over 40 per cent., which is really large sura compared witn the invest ment. But she does more. She can cover over a dozen eggs ; and if we erant that she raises only six chicks, w'hich will cost 5 cents per pound until they are two pounds in weight anil sell for only 15 cents a pound, the profit on each i.:..i :il 1 nr r.-m . .. chick, win oe so rents, or ?i.zo lor tne six. This, added to the 35 cents from eggs, makes $1.55 profit from the hen, or over 200 per cent. Now, we have given the cow the benefit of the high esti mates, and have estimated low for the hen in order to be within safe limits; and, although we plaen her nt n diad vantage, yet she returns twice as much profit in proportion to capital invested as the cow. But stop ; we have not charged labor to the lien. Well, one hen requires prac tically but little expensive labor, but it is almost as easy to care for a dozen as for one. A hundred hens can be kept on an acre of ground; and if we deduct from the $1.55 the sum of 55 cents for labor, etc., we still have il profit, orover 130 percent, profit on capital invested in the hens, or 100 profit from an acre of ground in poultry to S 10.67 for an acre devoted to the cow. Fifty hens will pay as much profit as a cow", and with less labor and expense, while much of the lalor may be done by those members of tho family who could "not be useful in the management of cows. Thus, while allowing only $1 a year from a hen, con sidering the small space required and the quick returns from the chicks and eggs, she gives a large prolit in proportion to capital invested. Poultry Keeper. TO RELIEVE COLIC. Slight touches of colic mav bo quickly relieved by giving the horse a table spoonful of salaratus or baking powder ih a glass of water. If it does not yield to this, ten to fifteen drops of aconite may be administered. It is easy to make most horses drink by holding their heads high and forcing the neck of a thick glass bottle containing the liquid into the side of the mouth. After the liquid has all left the bottle the head must be still kept up for a few minutes to compel the patient to swallow it and not lose it from bis mouth. SHORT NOTES. The best rule is to replace a cow that shows much lessening in vield bv a young one. " It is much the best policy to grow the cows needed to replace those gel ting old for profit. We should feed home-grown cows with home-grown feed, and both Bhould be of the best quality. While some cows vield well at fourteen years of age, others will not pay to keep when ten years old. There is no reason why the roosts should be high if the fowls are protected. It injures heavy fowls to fly down from high roosts. If your hena have sore feet, what is known as bumble foot, one of the first things to do is to lower the roosts, thus removing the cause. It is said that over 3,000,000 eggs are used annually in this country by three factories which make the albumen paper used in photography. Poultry-keeping is a most excellent adjunct to the dairy. Skim milk and a good grass range are two of the best fac tors toward making poultry profitable. The Poultry Keeper savs : When a hen's comb becomes frosted she will not lay until it heals. Rub a few drops of glycerin in th-romb and water two or three times a day. For any one who is in the poultry busi ness as a business the advantages of ar tificial incubation are plain. But for the farmer who keeps an ordinary flock we do not believe thev will often prove profitable. " Get the crop of chickens started earlv. Late-hatched pulk-ts are scarcely worth their cost. They will not make winter layers, and when thev do the spring eggs are so cheap that they iu uui pay current expense. The milk business uives an imnnrtimttp to keen up the fertiiiiv of the soil. Your bran bill i merely deosit of fertility in your soil, which is uviiiij urawu uon and tx-ing sold in milk. The bran is usually worth its cost in manure, and your extra milk from feeding it is almost clear prolit.
