I would not advise a force svs tem of feeding for cg^s curing the warm summer months when eggs are cheap, merely fead the hens enough that you wish to keep over to keep them in fair condition, and give as much range as possible, allowing them a couple of month's rest. Then put them on a rich increasing food to hasten and at the same time shortening the moulting period, thereby getting them in shape for late fail and winter laying when eggs mean dollars. We have not found it advisable to allow fowls to gorge themselves with fallen fruits as it somtimes tends to promote fowl trouble, however a little ripe fruit is not injurious. When convenient let them ha\c the run of pasture* and fields where they can catch grasshop pers and crickets and gather wasted grain and peas, and put on ail the constitution possible for a long laying campaign. The hen that is kept down to business aii summer usually moults late and is in n«» condition to lav un til the next spring. A little trouble exercised in this direct- ; ion means much profit where eggs arc high The young birds, especially those hatched later than march should have good steady feeding to get them de veloped before fall *«» that tbev too will be in line for the fail and winter egg campaign.
