Poultry Notes
Tho young cockerels should be put
up to fatten for two weeks, and ns
soon as fat sold.
Weeds crowd tho cultivated plants,
depriving them ot light and spaco In
both soil and nlr.
Tho ration should be balanced to
meet the needs of tho cow at all
stages of lactation.
Sour nnd moldy food should not be
lod. Tho fowl's henlth is worth more
than tho sour dole.
A hen needs nearly seyen times
more fresh nlr lc proportion to hti
ilo tbnn does tho horse.
Selecting tho hens ncfoidliu; to
their laying qualities is to some poul
tiymcn a hard proposition.
Anyone keeping poultry must, of
course, have hoiisir to protect them
from cold or stormy weather.
'owls Intended fcr market Bhould
ho (orpi-d up for a ween ci two nd
fed nil tho rich foot' they will cnt.
You enn succeed with nuv breed.
Cot the one you Jl'.to nnd then fctlck to
It Frequent changes mean failure.
Making a Snturday afternoon chore
r.t cleaning tho poultry hnuso Is one
way of insuring its being done regu
larly. An old cloth on tho nursery floor o(
tho brooder Is a good precaution to
take for the sako of the chicks' feet
nnd legs.
Tho great advantngo of the who
nest is thnt It affords no plnco for
vcrmln to hide. Then it is so easy to
clean, too.
Tho only method of rlddhg the
1 oultry-house nnd nests of mites Is to
Ufco strong treatment with a liquid
llco and mlto killer, and keep tho
pojltry-housc clean.
Mrs. William A. Allen, Chacon, New
Mexico, had so severe a cough that
It nearly choked her to death. Mr.
Allen snys: "Wo tried many things
without helping her when by good
luck 1 got n bottle or Foley's Honey
and Tar Compound. It helped her
at once and finally cured her It
the best medicine we e.ver used."

Reasons For High Prices
For Hides And Leather
"Notwithstanding the fact that
hides were placed on the free list
when tho present tariff law was en
acted, there has slnco occurred a
rather remarkahic advance In the hide
market, present prices being from 50
to 80 per cent, above tho current
prices provulllng four years ago, and
over 30 per cent, higher -than the
prices current one year ago," ssya
the Michigan Farmer. "In the spring
of 1908 cured or salted hides brought
but 7 cents por pound. One year
ago the same class ot hides wero 9 xh
cents per pound. Selected packer
hides for sole leather that In 190b
w.ero worth from 9 to 10 cents per
pound nro to-day bringing 16 cento
per pound. ,
"Many of the hides used In tho shoo
Industry ot this country como from
South America, and it was with tho
view ot cheapening the cost ot the
finished product, made from the
thinner hides derived from this
source, that this commodity was
placed en the free list In the present,
tariff law. Yet dry South American
hides havo advanced from 15 cents
per pound, which was tho prevailing
price four years ago, to 23 cents per
round nt tho present time.
"This advance Is doubtless due to
the shortness of tho supply and tho
increasing demand. Thcro has been
a decided reduction in tho number ot
ccltlo maintained in this country, duo
to the breaking up ot tho great ranges
of the west, the census figures tor
1910 showing a decrease ot about 10
per cent, in tho number of cattle In
tho ten-year period slnco the last
decennial census.: Tho figures for
population during this period show an
Increase of 20 per cent. There has
also been a large Increase in the
demand for leather for now nnd vn
ried uses, such as the .development of
the automobile, and tho Increase In
traveling causes an enormously In
creased demand for the manufactir?
of leather traveling bags, etc. The
world's demand for leather Is also
Increasing on account of the decrease
in the use ot wooden shoes.
"It will thus be seen that raw ma
terial for tho manufacture ot shoe.i
hns ndvnnced rnpldly In recent yeais.
These fncts and figures show tba
there Is a basic economic reason for
nn apparent Increase In the cost ot
living so far as the Items of footwear
land other leather products nro con
cerned; nn Increase, however, which
Is of sufficient benefit to live sto:k
producers through the additional
value of their animals sold, duo to u
larger Intrinsic worth of tho hides,
which Is out of proportion to nny ln
crenso In tho cost of first-class mnkoi
of shoes." Bradstrect's.
