Constitutes a General
Purpose Fowl
The first and most important re
quisite of iigeneralpurpoeiowl is to
receive as many erj as possible
and at the same time furnish as
large a market fowl in as short a
time is possible Wc also want as
many eggs as we can ge in the
fall and winter months when eggs
arc high Of -all classes of fowls 1

CIUSS II1C UlUhl pupilim aim
ble They occupy a middle posi
tionNbetween the Asiatic and Medi
terranean classes In the Ameri
can class I prefer the Plymouth
Roclc and the White Wyandotte
hey are the most contented but
Will still Keep busy Contentment
is as essential to a well filled er
basket as almost anything A hen
that is frightened and nervous
every time any one enters the pen
will not lay eggs Their abundant
plumage keeps them warm and
they are active enough to keep
busy scratching in the litter which
should be provided to scatter the
grain in Their small combs will
not freeze so easily as the Leghorn
or Minorca and right here the Wyan
dotte has one advantage over the
Plymouth Rock The rose comb of
tin Wyandotte hen follows so close
to the head that there is really not
enough of it to freeze in a tempera
ture that will not freeze the hen
herself The White Wyandottes
are also early layers equaling in
that respectthe Leghorns We have
had them laying at 4 months and
two weeks and it is no unusual
thing for the early hatched ones to
commence laying at five months old
The Rocks are generally six or
seven months old at the earliest
The next requirement is raising
Mjiickens for marKet and here we
fcwant a chick that will grow to a
the shortest possi
ble time Both Rocks and Wyan
dottes can be grown to broiler size
in ton weeks but the Rocks have
much larger bones and consequent
ly less meat In proportion to their
- size than the Wyandottes The
-A Wyaddottes are shorter aud blocky
Vvjvith short legs and neck and well
developed breast One of the par
ticular points in which the wyan
dotte excel isthefullmeaty breasts
fy The
Wvandottes can be fattened
more readily than any other breed
and not go olf their legs The Rocks
will go off their legs veryeasily and
whenoncedown are very hardtoget
upagain The White Wyandotte has
no dark pin feathers As roasters
unsurpassed Out of a lot
they are
of 45 hatched in May there are
twenty rockerels weighing from to
7 1 nnic TTmv is that at six
months old Pullets out of the
same hatch weigh Ai to54 pounds
One ol the good qualities seldom
touched upon in these days of so
many incubators is the sitting
qualities of a hen Hut we do not
all have incubators and those of us
who do have them do not like to
trust a choice setting of eggs for
which we have paid four or five
dollars in an incubator not when
we can get a good reliable hen one
which we know and depend on to
sit on thenjand brooders will not
scratch up all the May bugs and
worms and other insects which add
so much variety to their food and
put so much vigor into the young
stock The White Wyandotte makes
one of the best of mothers She is
very quiet and will stand great
deal of fussing and
will not drng her chicks all over
creation and her abundant feather
ing covers them well in cold wet or
windy veather
Onethinglforgotto mention The
White Wyandottes fortheir size are
very small eaters They do not re
quire much more food than the Med
iterraneans and considerably less
thad the Rocks and Asiatics When
keeping fowls in large numbers this
is- an item to look at
Mns Joseph N Pkue
In American Fancier
Scaly Legs
Scaly legs are due to minute
parasites which multiply very
rapidly and sometimes affect the
whole flock These parasites be
come imbedded in the legs forming
scales making the fowl a disagree
able looking object It is easily
cured when it first appears An
ointment composed of one partkero
sene and two parts lard wjll gen
erally clean the legs entirely
Whenithe legs become heavily
rnlerl itls jnore difficult to cure
Tnffmlaiipicaae gcranettelgir
and wash and dry them Then use
a mixture composed of lard car
bolic acid and keroseneoil Scrape
the legs and use this ointment
twice a Week until the scales drop
This disease should never be
tolerated and it should have atten
tion when it first appears and is
easily avoided
Profitable Poultry keeping
There are a good many theories
about poultry keeping There are
a good many old notions and a
many or more new ones that cause
the hen a good deal of suffering as
well as the man who invested in
har For years the national ex
periment stations have been grind
ing out facts about Cattle feeding
hog feeding pig feeding and sheep
feeding but science has strangely
neglected the intricatefeeding prob
lems of chickens We hae had
chickens since the dawn of hitor
that is some one has had them
and though they may have been do
ing business at the old stand cen
tury after century 1 dont know
that any one here can produce any
proof or any hard facts demonstra
ted bv actual scientific test in re
gard to the best methods of feeding
and earring for poultry In these
days of progress in these days of
investigation in these days when
our very civilization depends upon
the honest application of -the re
sults of investigation it is strange
that the hen i allowed to group
in the dark century after century
The Utah experiment station is
one of the first to investigate the
hen and it has already given us a
few valuable facts on the subject of
profitable poultry keeping and it is
to be a discussion of these facts
that 1 shall confine myself princi
pally at this time
The first thing probably in these
experiments that will attract the
attention of the farmer is the fi
nancial result Is there money in
hens It seems strange that after
centuries of honest unremitting
work this question should come up
every day of the 3 ear stranger
still that four out of every five farm
ers will answer the question in the
negative There is no money in
hens they say Of course the
correct answer implies that the
hens receive the best possible treat
ment The man who feeds his
hens on the dunghill and a feW ta
ble scraps once a week has no
right to say that there is no money
in hens His neighbor who keeps
his hens till their teeth fall out is
no more qualified to answer the
question It is probable that there
is no money in the business as it is
conducted on the majority of farms
Iu our experiments we had nine
separate pens all under different
conditions The financial results
for the year ranged from nothing to
200 ner cent profit on the cost of
feed These nine puns were all fed
alike They received the same
kind of food though in different
quantities but they all had as
much as they would eat They
were all housed the same that is
all in the same house The pen
that gave no profit on the cost of
feed was of the same breed and re
ceived the same kind of food as the
pen that made 200 per cent The
difference was that the former was
composed of hens three or four
years old and the latter of pullets
There was another difference
the old hens were fed in boxes
while the pullets were fed then
grain food in a litter of straw mak
ing them scratch for it The form
er was pen No 1 and the latter No
4 The hens in pen 1 produced 4
eggs during the year worth at
market price 56 cents Pen 4 pro
duced 182 e- during the ear
worth SI HS Pen 1 consumed fl
cents worth of food while pen 4
consumed 62 cents worth of food
Pen 5 were old hens same as pen
1 but they were fed their grain in
the straw same as pen 4 This
pen consumed 02 cents worth of
food laid 187 eggseach worth SI
a profit of 61 per cent on the cost
of feed The food cost ot the eggs
was for pen 441 cents per dozen
for pen 1 99 cents per dozen for
nen 5 09 cents per dozen The
poorest pen in the lot pen 1 al
though the eggs they laid did no
more than pay for the food they
consumed gave it isquite possible
better results than some hens on
the farms for the reason that they
were well fed and well housed
The same hens on the average farm
and with the average feeding-
mm - i
id come snort ot navintr lor
food they consume
Now suppose you have a thou
sand hens like pen I It costs to
feed them according to our experi
ment 53750 a year They lay
S560 worth of eggs which means a
profit of S2250 from which the wa
ges of a good man must be paid for
the year and the interest on an in
vestment of say 2000 Now take
pen 4 of pullets and what are the
results They consume 620 worth
of food during the year They pro
duce eggs worth S1SS0 leaving a
profit of 1260 from which say 200
interest on investment may be de
ducted leaving 1000 for the labor
of feeding and caring for them

A stylishly gowned society wo

through the entire line disarrang
ing garments on the dummies to
the great discomfort of busy shop

facing the counter the unobservant
shopper continued her inspection
She felt the silken waist and was
making an over careful examination
when thelady who was wearingthe
garment moved With a surprise
ejaculation thought you ah I
beg you pardon the shopper beat
a hasty retreat and left the store
