I know of many careful bree<i crs who sell all stock and eggs a regular market prices. Obser ration has taught thatthesesam breeders by taking the folio win* course, wouid greatly increasi their income. Look over you: farm journalstbatadvertisepure bred poultry—So. Farm Gazette Make up your mind who ha: quality; invest in eggs and breed ing SiO.k securing the best yot can find—breeds of standarc reputation. The cost of pure bred fowls to begin with will b< but little and they will prove more profitable than the cominor or cross-bred kinds. Among any of the pure breds there are extra good ones and these will bring many times as much as commonstock. Beginnersshould never buy breeding stock from any and all sources. We all know that the pure-bred barred rock is the best all around bird the world ever produced. The white leghorns next, and stand as egg machines. If you secure good foundation stock, have ordi nary perseverence, pluck and natural love for t|ie breed that is the favorite of the farmer as well as the most exacting fancier, you will when figuring up your oank account look back and won der that you had not years be fore given up the barn-yardchick ens for the pure standard barred Plymouth rocks. Now to breed them success f..n • . ■» uv uo means easy. i\o . °°e can win success with stand ard poultry unless a study of the work is made in all its parts. Showing stock and winning prizes are among the essentials. Confidence wins success; igno rance and carelessness costs both time and money, but the experience is valuable. The mating of barred rocks in order » cto produce prize winning cock :co,Js and pullets is one of the ' . , ;est problems to be solved breeder. Much has been ,i :i the subject. My ex it -'las been that in order -)te any great per cent, of « colored specimens we f Pl twoseperate matings « produce our best cock d another to produce our pullets.

Any plan of building that will provide room and comfort will be all right and it does not matter of what mater ial it is composed. Where the chickens are yard ed rather than given the range of the farm they should have about ten times as much space outside that they have in the house, lhe larger space that can ce given them outside the better. This is always true of poultry. 1 here is always a convenience in having more than one yard, as occasion demands it. One very good rule to go by inascertainin^ the number of fowls to be kep^ in a poultry house is to multiply the length by the width and de cide by ten and the result will be the number it will keep. A house that is twelve by fourteen feet contains lb8 square feet and will afford room for lb hens. The greatest menace topoultry that is allowed its.free.lom on the farm is vermin cats, skunks (both- two-legged and four-leg ged) and other varmints. An excess of corn in iij_ diet of a sow and also of the young pigs is apt to cause scours The pigs should have no corn u til b weeks old.

SOc. the egg business. Recently there has heen a eat deal done a.ong the line of oducing the 200-egg hen. We ve a great many more 2dii-egg ns now than we had some \ ears o. As the work goes on pro icing these hens, sitters a»"e tting proportionately scarce, tte's have always heen scarce a time when they are most eded. In the late winter and rlv spring they are far too tree, and later in the season :y become too numerous. The '-egg hen has not come to the 1 development desired, and e is not as easily produced ; s me egg producers would like have her. We would rather e good producers of eggs more mmon rather than a few 200 g hens that are far too few. great many have 200-egg hens 10 have far to tew of them and ey are not able to repeat the siness year after year. While the north is looking and >oring to obtain the 200-egg n, the farmers and poultry men the Southwest are spending >re time with the hens that lay out one-half as many egg;-, t they lay them when thev are )st needed. Oklahoma, Ark saw and Texas are becoming jreand more important sources egg supply every year This ction oi country is far enough uth so as to be comparatively ;e from winter conditions that rmerly produced a great arcety of eggs about January February every few years, lie poultry busines has reach that point where a win r's dearth of eggs will be a ing forgotten in the near future, hen this business gets to what appears it will be, and when e cold storage gets in its work ere will be but few seasons of e year when there can be a arcety of eggs. VOKLD’S CONSUMPTION OF MEAT. The consumption of meat all •r the universe is increasing, s now estimated that in one r the 'total amount of meat *sumed over the entire world ( including missionaries and a>nturers) amounts to about Njf.UUO tons, or sixteen billion c‘*t hundred and forty million P**ds. This incluresthe three of h u man meat food—beef, mi>n and pork. Ot the total amit of meat produced for hu maV)od the United States is cret_>d with contributing a total of +<>,000 tons, Russia 2,2%, ni)o i s, German v 1,520,000 tons, P rai 1,200,000 tons. Great lirita 760,000 tons, and Aus trala‘and Argentine 000,000 and 4,ooij tons respectively. A fedays ago an egg of the great s|< was offered for sale in Londoi and after a spirited compejjon was sold for 51,220.
