Objection is frequently raised to the keeping of poultry in towns and cities because of the odor which may result and also because of roosters erowinp, particularly in the early morning. In some cases city regulations have been formulated to prevent or to control poultry keeping. Where there are city regulations it is necessary to find out their provisions and to conform to them. But there is no necessity for the poultry flock to become a nuisance to neighbors, says tile United States department of agriculture. If the drop ping boards are cleaned daily and the houses and yards are kept in a reasonably clean condition there will be no annoying odors. The male bird need not be a nuis ance. Unless It is intended to hatch chickens from the flock it is unneces sary to keep a male bird, federal poul try specialists point out. The fact that there is no male in the flock will have absolutely no effect on the num ber of eggs laid by the hens. If it is desired to mate the hens and to hatch chicks the male bird should be sold or eaten as soon as the hatching season is over. This is desirable not only to eliminate noise but also to eave the feed that would be eaten by the male, mid for the reason that the eggs produced after the male is dls- , ' v- AVMvMViVAyX Member of Girls' Club Feeding Her Flock. posed of will be infertile. Since these eggs cannot be hatched they keep much better than fertile eggs and consequently are superior for preserv ing or for market. The flock must be kept confined; otherwise the hens will stray into neighbors' yards and gardens, where they may cause damage and, almost surely, ill feeling. TRAP NEST IS QUITE USEFUL Tends to Tame Birds and Increases Egg Production Eliminates Un profitable Hen. A trap nost is a laying nost so ar ranged that after a hen enters it sbe is confined until after released by fhe attendant. When possible it is advisable to trap nest the layers for the following reasons: 1. To tame the birds, thereby tend ing toward increased egg production. 2. To furnish definite knowledge concerning traits and habits of indi viduals. 3. To furnish the only satisfactory basis for utility or other breeding. 4. To eliminate the nonproductive lion. 5. To add mechanical precision to Judgment and experience in develop ing and maintaining the utility of a flock. PUREBRED POULTRY IS BEST Farmer Will Obtain Larger Profit and Get More Satisfaction Than From Mongrels. Sometimes a man succeeds with barnyard mongrels better than his neighbor with prize-winning fowls be cause he gives them better care. But let the successful farmer, who has not already done so, turn his attention to pure-bred birds and lie will derive a still larger profit in dollars and satisfaction. GIVE GROWING CHICKS ROOM Youngsters Do Not Recover From Evil Effects of Crowding in Brood ers or Coops. Very often the growing chicks are crowded in little out-of-door brooders or chick coups; or some other mistake is made in brooding. Later they are transferred, but the harm has been done; and although they may seem to grow all right afterwards, they do not recover. Helsingfors Could Give Lessons ir. Cleanliness to the Majority of Towns in America. Helsingfors, Finland, might give les sons in the municipal amenities to al most any American city, although it is tucked away In the North, in a bare little land of rock and lakes and birch trees, in the latitude of the southern end of Greenland, writes Arthur Ruhl in the Outlook. I do not happen to know of any American city so consistently clean and well built. They post no "bills in Helsingfors. They tie them around posts with strings, and when they have served their purpose they disap pear, strings and all. Every morning there is a market on the broad quay at the end of the esplanade; fish, fiowers, meat and vegetables even Oregon apples, which contrive, in spite of distance and almost prohibitive rates of exchange, to cross the six tieth parallel. A few minutes after noon you would never know a market had been there. Stalls fold up, rub bish disappears, street cleaners turn on the hose, and presently the quay Is as clean as a tennis court. The Helsingfors gas tanks are not the dismal contraptions that disfigure most of our water fronts. The tank Itself may the same, but they build a neat brick house for It a sort of monumental roundhouse, with stone wreaths around the top by way of frieze, quite in place among buildings intended for politer uses, and not without some suggestion of the Castle of St. Angel o in Rome. IMPROVING THE HOME YARD Low-Growing Shrubs at Walk Inter sections and Corners of the Lot Should Be Provided. A well-planted home yard with shade trees, flowering shrubs and per ennial flowers surely is more valuable And more enjoyable than a barren, un sightly yard of weeds, ashes, tin cans and rubbish. Perhaps " the principal reason why we find so many poorly im proved home yards is because a lack of knowledge along these lines is everywhere apparent. A well-planted home yard should provide for the following ornamental features: The yard should be joined to the street by the planting of low growing shrubs at the walk intersec tions and at the corners of the lot along the sidewalk. These should all be low-growing shrubs such as Tbunberg berries, snow berries, Japan quince, ivsa rugosa and golden bell. These when planted in groups, from three to five feet apart, will give an informal treatment, and where every home along the street is planted in this way, the entire street is given a boulevard appearance. If a formal effect is desired along the sidewalk, the treatment calls for the planting of a hedge. For this pur pose the Ibota privet, white mulberry, Thunderborg barberry or honeysuckle marraiwii should be used. Productive Ornamentation. Any back yard at uill can be made both attractive and productive. Grapevines make a good -porch trel lis when space is not available for an arbor. A high fence or back porch may be used as trellis for blackberry plants. In a decorative border a few clumps of the brilliant red giant rhu barb will not look out of place. As for hedges which will be both decora tive and highly productive, no plants of a useful variety will be more sat isfactory than Taspberries, gooseber ries and currants. They are hardy, will take little care and will supply fruit for each season. Plant Memorial Trees. Planting of memorial trees is be coming a popular custom throughout the country, many cities and commu nities setting them out along streets and roads. A notable example of this Is to be found at Tampa, Fla., where the Rotary club is spending .$7,000 In planting trees- along a "Road of Remembrance." while at Chattanooga, Tenn., the National League for Wom en's service is lining the Dixie high way out of that city .with memorial trees. The South is setting a fine ex ample before the rest of the country In this work. Sickly Community Handicapped. You frequently hear a man say: "I am not in business for my health." Well, he should be, for if he loses his health on account of his business, the money generally goes with it. Good health, that is, bodily health and vigor, lies at the bottom of eco nomic prosperity. A sickly community cannot carry forward commercial en terprises and make them big financial successes. Unique Reason for Theft. A. S. Barron, a rancher near San Mateo, Cal., recently lost three bales of hay, and a neighbor of his, Henry Bissig, lost a 300-pound calf. Barron found this notice nailed on his barn door: "We stole t three bales of hay from your ranch 'and, finding we had no use for it, we stole a calf from Bis Big to eat It." .
