KEEPING POULTRY IN TOWNS
No Necessity for Flocks Becoming
Nuisance to Neighbors If Reason
able Care Is Taken.
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-

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.

PUREBRED POULTRY IS BEST
Farmer Will Obtain Larger Profit and
Get More Satisfaction Than
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
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.

monumental roundhouse, with stone

frieze, quite in place among buildings

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
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.
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

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
