SEPTEMBER WORK IN THE POULTRY YARD.

fine sand if possible, as It oiaies a
better dust bath for the hens.
The house should be sprayed with
kerosene emulsion to kill any mites
that may be in it. Whitewashing
should follow the emulsion in a wreek.
A cupful of zenoleum to a bucket of
whitewash adds greatly to its effect
The crop that is to supply green
feed for the poultry during the win
ter should be planted as soon as pos
sible so that it will get a good start
before the cold weather comes.
Rye, oats, wheat, rape, turnips all
make good green crops for poultry.
Crimson clover sown with the grains
improves the grazing and costs very
The pullets that are to be kept for
layers next winter should not be
crowded. Close culling will pay, as
fewer pullets with more room and
better attention will likely give bet
ter profits than a larger number not
as well cared for.
Cockerels should not run with the
pullets, and all that will not be need
ed for breeders should be fattened
and marketed as soon as possible.
Remember that coops that were
plenty large enough two months ago
will not give room enough for the
same number of chicks now that they
are larger. If you do not thin them,
nature is apt to do it for you.
Pullets of the lighter breeds
hatched in February and March
should be laying now and those of
the general-purpose varieties should
be showing signs of approashing ma
turity. These should be in perma
nent quarters before laying starts.
Moving them after laying has started
is apt to cause a break in egg pro
Any Btock that is to he exhibited at
the fairs should have special atten

ers should be pulled so that perfect
ones will have time to grow before

them with a mixture of lard and sul
Often chicks with black, buff or red
plumage will be found to have some
white in wing feathers. This is in
many cases simply the result of the
chick being a little out of condition
when these feathers grew. If they
are pulled they will, if the stock is
bred right, generally come in sound
in color if the stock is kept in good
health and free from insects.
HOW TO TREAT SOREHEAD.
Messrs. Editors: Sorehead is not
necessarily a fatal disease, but it is
one that needs attention, or the
chicken affected by it will likely die
of starvation. It is a disease that
one might call “fall dwindling,” for
it causes the birds that take it to
become thin and scrawny and to
waste away; and it usually comes in
the fall of the year,—about the time
when mosquitoes are the worst.
Sorehead is first made manifest by
little red lumps about the comb, gills
and eyes. These bumps, or pimples
enlarge and others appear, and they
fill with a fetid matter, until, unless
the disease 1b checked, the head be
comes a mass of putrid sores,—the
eyes closing in many instances from
the scabs about them. This is sore
head in its worst form.
Now, there is a cure, and the treat
ment is simple, if taken in time. The
best remedy 1 know of is a mixture
of lard and coal oil, in the propor

oil, and a few drops of carbolic acid
additional. It should all be very
thoroughly mixed until it fully emul
sifies and becomes white and soap
like. Then, at the first appearance
of the malady, rub the head in gen
eral with the mixture, applying it
with a soft rag. Do this two or
three times a week. When this is
done the red bumps turn black, dry
up and fall off and the surface heals
over nicely. H. B. GREER.

BEE KEEPING FOR FARMER8.
Indeed, this has been a remark

Our little workers not only had a
poor chance to make honey, but also
little opportunity to swarm and make
Increase during the spring season
when this work naturally comes. And
now here at the last of the summer
unnatural swarms are coming out.
On August 2 5 my helper found a
swarm on a little apple tree near the
bee yard. It was very small, and
though I could not hope for much
from it, we decided to put it in a
new home all right. So a good
moveable-frame hive, with plenty of
old comb, was brought out and the
little people were set up to house
keeping in almost no time.
This happened about 8 o'clock in
the morning, and I suspect the little
swarm had been hanging out there
all night. However, we moved it to
its new place in the bee yard and I
intend to put an Alexander feeder
under the rear of the new home at

pants a good supper of melted sugar.
But judge of my surprise along in
the afternoon when my assistant
came in and said that the little
swarm had come out again and was
hanging on another apple tree.
Again we went and gently placed
them in the new home. This was
very easily done, for in each case
they clustered very near the ground
1 lie last time I didn’t put on either
veil or gloves.
When these bees came out the
third time, I gave up hopes of doing
anything with them, and in a day or
two they had disappeared. Whether
they had a crazy queen or what was
the matter, I can not certainly tell. I
