I will sub stantially add to the stock as it now is and invite the patronage of the public at large assuring them that their business will have every attention. " Z. Z. SAVAGE (Successor to SMITH & CURRIE.) Corner Fourth and Taylor Streets REARING THE CHICKS. I Importance of Clranllnraa la h l'oltrr Yarda. Ferfect cleanliness Is of the highest Importance la the jwiltry yards and houses during the entire yeur, but 1b especially necessary In the sultry sum mer months, when every detail should be carefully attended to which may be of any possible benefit to the growth and development of the young stock. Fowls which have the very liest of food and care lu other reMiect8 will not thrive when confined In unclean and 111 ventlluted houses and pons, writes IV. II. Works In American Poultry Journal. Cleanliness Is highly neces sary In the rearing of young chicks, no matter whether they are Intended for exhibition stock, for breeders or for the market. Ity cleanliness Is not meant the use of a large ijuantlty of disinfectants which may give the appearance of cleanliness, although these are undoubt edly good to use hi connection with the care of the poultry quarters. Cleanli ness Is of such great account In the summer that In many cases It may mean the saving of the life of a chick as well as the health and growth, for cleanliness Is the foe of vermin, and vermin Is the cause of a majority of the poultry losses nnd diseases. The houses for the young stock should be dry and well ventilated, and the chicks should be kept from crowding and taught to go on the roosts as soon as possible, so that there will be no danger of deformed breastbones caused by overcrowding. The brood coops and brooders should receive much of the poultryman's attention during the hot season, nnd the little chicks should bavo clean, dry straw on the floors of their coops and also plenty of fresh air and shade. Lime Is one of the best things to use In the houses, either In the form of whitewash or sprinkled about the floor as a powder. Carbolic acid Is also a good disinfectant, and kerosene should be used In the fight against lice and mites. The chicks need to be dusted with Insect powder and their dusting places sprinkled with It. The ynrdit should be dug up often and disinfected with lima nd carbolic nctd, so that the ground will not become old and full of disease germs. Handling Egs. la cold weather gather the eggs often In order thut they do not get chilled, says Dr. I Watson In American Poul try Journal. Keeping eggs lowers their vitality. If kept at too. low a tempera ture the chilling injures them. If, on the other hand, the temperature Is too warm development begins. Just the proper temperature to hold the eggs at Intended for hatching Is uot known, that generally recognized as best being between 65 and 05 degrees F. If kept In too dry a room eggs evaporate mois ture very rapidly. They should, there fore, not be exposed to a direct draft of air. They should be turned dally In order to prevent the yolks adhering to the shell, In which case the vitelline membrane may become ruptured when eggs ure turned. Eggs should prove fer tile and may he saved for hatching four days after the male has been placed lu the breeding pen. The Iliial Iliith. A dust bath should be provided lu every breeding pen and should consist of a shallow box 5 by 4 feet, In which you place sand, ashes and some sul phur and n little Insect powder. This should be shaded lu the summer time. Keep dry and have a cover to take on ami off In the winter months. Neglect of the bath means an Increase of the fowl liens, which, unlike the blood mites, which are only found out t night and hide away during the day, live on the body of the hen and drain It of much of the egg forming ele ments. These parasites lay countless small white eggs on the downy part of the feathers, especially under the wings and near the vent. In the early au tumn, when the birds usually lose their old feathers, these eggs ure carried nil about the farm, are duly hatched and return to the houses. WANT ADS.

(iiaiiulated Meat V hr Poultry, For those who hove neither time nor opportunity to prepare meat In other forms for their poultry the prepared granulated stuff Is an excellent substi tute and Is so cheap thut It should nev er be left out of the diet for growing chickens and for winter layers, says A. V. Meersch lu Western Poultry Jour nal. It is made either from horseflesh or from tho offal of cattle and is a com position of (lesb aud bone boiled up and dried and theu pressed Into blocks, afterward belug passed through a mill to be broken up Into convenient sixes. It Is so prepared that it will keep fresh and sweet for some considerable Ume, and when chickens are fed entirely on dry food It Is convenient to give them their meat in this form. The amount to bo given depends largely upon the slxe of the birds, but a little every day to each one will make a great difference.
