VERMONT WATCllMAtf & STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1902. AGRICULTURAL FEEDING OHICKS. Ilroilers uro hatchod out, or aro liatohing out, at this tiirio, thougli tho early oncsshouhl hnvobeen hatch od muoli soonor. As soon as chicks aro hatchod thoy should bo put in a warm plaeo. Tho placo should bo nbout uiuoty degrces toinporuture. whothor suuunur or winnor. No food should bo Rivon tliem until thoy are thirty-six hours old. Thoro is a sln gular way of discovoring whothor tho chicks aro too warin or not, and that Js, if thoy huddlo togothor tlioy aro cold. If thoy sproad out 011 tho odges of tho brooder thoy aro too warm. Soinctimos, howover, tho niistuko is mado of cooling tho brood oit too quickly whon thoy aro soon at tho euge of tho broodor. Tlio first food that should bo given tliom is a little stale bread dipped in milk, sqneezod dry and placod in troughs uiado of laths. Tliis food should bo givon them throo timos a day, but a sep nrate trough sliould bo kopt ahvays "boforo thom with oatmoal in it. Tlie oatmoal should bo granulated. Throo times a wook a raw ogg should bo boaton and niixed in with tho milk bcforo tho stalo bread is dippod in it Ilard boiled eggs uause bowel dis oase, and so will too mnch meat, but a little meat should bo givon thom twico a week, ohopped vcry fino. Mashed potatoes aro oscellcnt for young chicks, and aftor the chicks aro a week old scroenings and cracked corn may bo given them. Green food of auy kind is oxcellent altliough it is not esscntial. As soon as thoy are largo cnongh to eat it, wholo wheat should be given them. Tho meat boing insuillcient may eauso bowel diseaso and that among young chicks is vory fatal. If lico aro troubling thom look on tlie lieads to flnd them first. If thoy are bothored with theso pests thoy will appear droopy and sloepy, Sometimes tho mistake is made of supposing tho bottom heat in the brooder is too high whon the chicks appear weak 'in tho legs. If thoy try to run aronnd tho tloor, in niost cases it is a symptom of rapid growth and that beiug thq case the chicks will soon recover, as it liiay bo due to forcinc them too rapidly. Plenty of fresh water should bo kopt boforo fowls of any kind, but tho young ones must have the M'ater tanks so arrang ed tliot thoy can only got thoir bills in, as dampness is very fatal to young chicks. Tho koy to success with very young chicks is in keoping tlie brood er in propor condition, especially ro garding tho tepinorature. If tlie poul tryman is careloss in this respoct he may expect to raise less than lialf his chicks. Mrs. Marsh's Vory Words. " After eating," slio tells us, "I had awiut paiu at tlie cliost, and my stomacli telt dull, cold and wretclied.

When farmers are in good circum stances and tho farm briugs in a gen erous iucome, it is doubtful if tho poultry busiuess is profitable. Upon large farms, where largo num bers of live stock are raised, thore is great demand for the farmer's timo and atteutiou, and the poultry yard is sometlnug that must not bo noglect ed if any proflt is to bo derived from the business. This, wo think, is tho reason we so seldom seo large, exten sive farmers and stock raisors engago in the poultry busiuess, except upon a Kinall scale for family uso. For small farmers, whose incomo is not suiHcient to meet the demand, the poultry business is especially adapted. It requires but little capi tal to begin with and brings in quick returns. In this way the wives and daughters can earn quite a sum of mouey with whicli they can supply themselves and tho honie with necessaries and many comforts which lierotofore may havo been considered luxuries. Boys and girls can embark in the business and earn monoy enough to help educatc themselves and at the samo time bo acquiring good business training. It requires closo attention to detalls, stiok-to-it-iveiiess and in dustry which aro good training for uny business. When ono acquires sufficient ability to pfopcrly manage a largo poultry plant ho has good business training for managing almost any brancli of stockraising. Tho iucubator will do muoh to in oreaso the poultry business. With it largo numbera of chicks can bo hatch- ed and raised. This will mako it pos siblo to disposo of tho old hons eacl year, as a now supply can bo raised ovory spring. Also largo numbers of broilors can bo raised, early in thesea son, whon thoy command high pricos. Prodaoing eggs and broilors offera. a good opportuuity for thoso witl timo and attontion to devoto to tho work, and it is much botter business for tho farmer'B children than pod dliug small artiolos for sale, whicli has boen so popular tho last few years Rural, in Indiana Farmor. DANGER IN OROSSES. Thoro is inuch ambition occasioually ovokod by onthusiastio shoop brcodors in tho attompts to found a now brood of shoop. I have had porsonal uc (luaintanco with two Amorican brbed- ors and ono brocdor in Fianco who havo mado attompts in this lino. Ono of our own broedors mado a most dis astrous failuro in tlie attempt to found a now brood by mixturo of about overy broed in oxistonce in tho Unitod Statos, whilo an old porsonal friond simially failcd in starting what lio lioped to mako a breed of whicli was a mixturo of Southdowu and Cots- wold. Botlt thoso attompts nccessari- ly failcd for waut of that oloso alllni. ty which iB nceossary to meot tho law of naturo in this rospect. Naturo abhors forciblo attompts to disturb its balanco. Thore is a lirmly flxed sot of rules in tliis rogard, which no man as yot has beon success fnl in violating. And the most offeo tivo of thoso rules is that in tho at- tomptcd union of any two animals of differont breeds thore must be somo uatural afllnity and no oxtremo varia tion bctween tho charactors. So tliat for examplo, in tho crossing of any two broeds of shenp tho most satisfac tory results havo been gainod by tho early lamb producors, with whom the Soutlisdowns or Cotswold ram on tho 3Iorino cwcs lias mado tho bost prog euy. But this breeding has not boon in any way with the intontionof mak iug a breed of tho cross ; for, seientift- cally considoriug it, thoro is groatly too much diffoieneo betwcen theso shecp to admit of a sure iixcd mixturo by one cross. Tho first cross makos a very desirablo niarket auimal but every good quality is lost by any fur- ther mixturo of blood, and so far tliero is that want of adaptability .called nicking in by tho broedors which has mado completo failuro in ovory at tempt. So, too, the samo has happoned by a cross of tho Southdowu on the Shrop shire, which was tried by a Now York broedor somo years ago. This fail ure was distinctly foroshown by tho writer on tho ilrst suggestion of tho attempt, for tho reason that thore was already a too close relationship bo tween tho two breeds and not a sufll- cient variation between them to pro curo any sufllciont distiiiction neces sary for a cross which might bo final- ly doveloped into a distiiict breed, Honry Stewart in Sheep Brooder.

Wo think the great reason why so many ordinary horsos aro bred on tho farm comes from relying wholly upon the stallion and paying little atteutiou to tho character and breeding of tho mares. In horses uniformity is worth money in the markot, especially in those of good class, whethor thoy are heavy djaughts or carriago toams, and you cannot get uniformity in any produco except through kindred blood. You cannot breed a mare of Percheron and trotting blood and anothor with coach, Olydesdalo and trotting blood to the samo stallion aud get a pair of matched colts. Nature will not be lie herself, and shehas declared so often and emphatically that "like produces like," aud what you sow so shall you reap, that it is useless to attempt longer to do the impossiblo, So, the first thing a farmor should do when ho starts raising horses is to got brood mares of tho class he wants, aud with inoro or loss of tho blood of the breed he proposes breeding them to the niore the better. This will bo found equally advisable whothor he proposos raising draughts, carriago horses or roadstors. Audsuch mares should not bo matched haphazard, but after careful oxaiaiiiatioii of tho stallion andhis breeding, and of somo of his colts if possiblo. But do not coiidemn a stallion becauso ho gets somo poor colts until you examino thoir dams. As a rulo yon will flnd most of tho troublo is with tho mares, not the horse, altliough of course, thoro are worthless stallions of all breeds. ilichigan Farmer.

The care given a maro will materi ally influonco her foal. Sho cannot bo expected to do woll as a breeder if sho is forced to subsist all wintor 011 tho strawstack, sheltered by a barbed wire fenco ; on tho otlier hand mares that aro kept idlo and fed heavily on corn and othor heating foods will havo about as unfavorable a chanco as tho starved animal. As in most other things, tho happy medium is the royal road to success. The writor is a lirm beliovor in 'tho efficacy of niodorato work as a panacea for most of the ills to which brood mares aro addicted. Exerciso a maro must havo in plenty and it is botter that sho should havo it in harncss than ruii ning in a yard. Of courso it is mgch botter to havo her run in freodom than to havo her stand in a stall, but tho maro that is properly fed all wiu ter and worked moderately overy day will havo moro chauces to como out of her foaliug all right and produco a good, healthy, stroug colt than tho maro that runs in a yard or looso in a stall. Tho feeding of all kinds of animals has boon discussed boforo this insti tuto and little needbo said about foed ing tho brood mare. Supposo tho mare has como through tho wintor in good llx, and is due to foal about tho last of April. Let her work right along, foed her liborally on good, sound, bright oats and hay. It is woll to givo hor crushed or ground oats, with a little bran. At this tinitrcorii is not good for her. if enough oats aro not raised to foed all tho year, corn should bo fed dnring the cold weather. As to quantity of food, great caro must be takon ; about tho only rulo that can bo given is: Givo enough to koop tho maro from ruimiug down matori ally in ilosh. No horseiuan will neg loct to groom his mares rogularly and woll, and do ovorything in his powor to koop them as comfortable as possi blo all tho timo. Hard driving and hard pulling should bo avoided at all times, sinco thoro is dangor of tlio maro slipping her foal, caused by ovorexortion or straiu. Tho maro should novor bo put to tho limit of hor strongth or ondnr anco. William Hixou, boforo tlio Brown county, Kan., Farmors' Insti tuto. How's This?

A notablo contribution to tho discussion of tho Philippino quostion was mado in the Seiiato 011 Thursday by Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts.
