The following Is the core given it hen anil her chicks by a successful Ioultry keeper: "My little 'sitting' Louse has nests for sixteen hens, nnd I try to Net um many lit a time as I cau. When the chicks aro hatched I take lliein out of the nests and put thorn In a big market Uiskct with a warm woolen cloth to cover them. Then selecting the hens that seem the most anxious about; tlielr chicks I put the liens In little A' coops, made with the slats perpendicu lar, tho hack hoarded up, the upper half of hack hinged to lower half and held In place by button at top. Made In this way the hen cau lie got at easi ly or a dead chick taken out of the coop without difficulty, and on a cold. E m HANDY HENCOOP. Fig, 1, unfinished coop; Fig-. 2, coop com pleted. windy day the wind does not sweep through the coop, chllllnff the chickens, as it does when both ends of the coop are slatted. "I place two of these coops about ten feet apart aud connect them by two frames, one covered with Inch mesh wire nettlug for front and back frame covered with half Inch matched boards, with a door at each end, so as to get at the frout of the coops with feed and water. As the top part of the front frame Is made of a board a foot wide, thus more than half of the runaway Is kept dry, and the chicks can run around on a rainy day without get ting wet and are safe from hawks and varmints.' As these frames are only fastened to the coops by a nail or screw, they can be taken off and stored away In a shed In the fall. When chicks are hatched In cold weather put only fifteen with each hen. In May or the last of April I put twenty to twenty-five with each hen. 'As the chicks are all the same color and age, the hens do not know their own chicks ad will take any of them. The chicks remain with the hen as long as she will mother them." Business Hen. AERATION OF MILK. Prett? Dad to Perform Thla Opera tion In the Barnyard. liy aeration of milk we understand the exposlug of milk to nlr, of the fore lug of nlr luto milk. The theory of the practice Is that the oxygon of the nlr purifies or IiuproveH the milk, nud at the same time gases or volatile oils which are In the milk lire enabled to pass away. It is true that if the air to which the milk Ih exposed or which Is forced luto the milk is perfectly pure the result undoubtedly In an Im provement la the flavor and physical quality of the milk, but In many cases the air Is not pure, and very often as much harm as good Is done, says Fro- fessor II. II. Dean of Canada In Ameri can Agriculturist. The Benefit of Aeration. Now, to my mind for n uiun to areata milk lu a barnyard Is one of the worst things he could possibly do. I speak from experience. We have milked our cows In tue yard, which. I think. Is kept a good deal cleiiuer than the uv eruge barnyard. We have put the aerator over the fence, milked the cows and nave let the milk ruu down over the aerator. The result was that we got some of the worst milk we could possibly have. Unless the air is pure I think It would be best to cool the milk with as little aeration as possible. The chief benefit from aerutlou, to my mind, Is the opportunity that Is given for any bad flavors arising from undeslruble feed or Indigestion on the pint of the cow to puss away. There Is also u certain amount of cooling which is ad vantageous. ' Open Lot Steer Feeding;. The Pennsylvania experiment sta tion reports another experiment In feeding cattle In barn and in lot with access to open shed, with the same general results as heretofore. It "shows that the gains made by fattenlug steers are not lnc! eased by warm quarters It is not possible to huve stables too cold for fattening steers lu this climate, provided they are kept dry and well bedded," which Is the experience of commercial cattle feeders. Nor In this Instance were gains made cheaper In door! than lu the lot, the outdoor steers eating less per pound of grain than the others. The table of gains does not suggest that the steers were on full feed, the dally gain being 1.4 pounds per day for a period of 125 days. It i neems safe to assert that steers on full feed require no stabling aud that steers being fed so that they are putting on flesh are not In nml of heat either. National Stockman.
