How Mr. Geer Makes Money Hatch ing Them All Summer Hong—The Precautions to He Observed. .Messrs. Editors: On the 2 7th day of May, ISSti, we took off a brood of Brown Beghorn chickens. They were from some eggs which we had bought in the East at a fancy price; and, be fore we placed the order we were ad vised by some friends who had heard that May-hatched chickens did not do well; not to buy eggs, as they would not pay. But we bought the eggs and we got 11 as bright and active little fellows as one could wish to see. We had already prepared a place for the hen and her brood before they came from the nest; and the way we fixed it was ever afterwards a pointer to us for success with May, or any other late hatched chickens. Before we set the hen we had soak ed the interior of the nest box good with coal oil, and put in new nesting materials, so there were no lice or mites about it. We gave the hen a good place to dust both before and after taking the nest, and so she was also free from all parasitic pests. Next, we made a slatted pen about 8 by 10 feet, and in it we placed a nice roomy coop which we also treat ed to a good inside soaking with coal oil, and then scattered dry saDd on the floor of it to the depth of an inch. Into this coop in the pen we put the hen with the chickens from our high priced eggs. Then we proceeded to give them good attention, and to feed and water them regularly and often. We used dry feed composed of seeds and cracked grain, and some ground beef scraps, and some freshly gath ered and cut-up fresh oat sprouts from a patch we had planted for the purpose. It was May, mind you, at the outset, and a few days later It was June; but those little leghorns fairly Jumped along, they grew so very fast. Two were killed by acci dent, and one died from exposure, being shut out unintentionally one night, but we raised eight, and they were fine ones, too, and Just as large and heavy at maturity as any Leghorns we ever raised. •Since then we have set eggs in May Just the same as in March or April, and with Just as good results, and really much less worry and care, for the weather in these months is not as favorable as it is in May. The fear of lice and mites may be dis pelled very readily by the precau tions which we took, and the young bird at maturity will assuredly be just as large and heavy as if hatched much earlier. And not only is the May-hatched chicken desirable, but the June and the July chicken as well; and if we will take proper precautions, we can hatch and raise chickens all summer just as easily as we can much ear lier in the season. For market pur poses we need not keep them to ma turity, but sell them just as soon as they aro largo enough to eat. which is within a few short weeks from the shell; and this process may be repeated right along all the year, if one will, and so keep up a contin ual income from the hens. Indeed, we favor May chickens, and June and July chickens, and lots of them. It strikes the writer as foolish for one to stop trying to grow chickens just at the season when the weather is really the most favorable of all the year. H. B.

We hear it every year about this time It refer* to young chicks from a few days to two weeks old. The last mail brought two letters from Prog res site Farmer and Gazette reader* one from a lady who breeds Rhode Inland Reds at Spring Hope. N. c . and the other from a gentleman at l.umber ton.

Remedies had been f rli.tl U If k til I 1a ... ^ . am - » uru, ani am appealed to. to help them If 1 can. The trouble may be due to different cause*, the most frequent one being too early feeding Young chicks should never be fed under 2 4 hours, and it Is much better to wait .5 6 hours. The Injurious effect* of too early feeding are not apparent at once and usually extend over a period of 1 4 days. I he Oral two weeks of a rhirk's life is the most critical time, and If this can be tided over, given a half a chance It will live to maturity Bleepy chicks and bowel trouble arc unheard of where chicks have not be n fed too early in their existence Mites and lice frequently kill young chicks on very short notice, and no one who pretends to raise chicks should think of removing them from under the mother hen to the brood ... liL__ -n.HiUUi k• easing mem on the top of the head and under the throat and repeating thla every week or 10 days until the hen leaves them. For chicks that are drooping and have bowel trouble there are several remedies, though It Is hard to effect a cure when diarrhea makes Its ap pearance.
