How to Make Mischief.
Keep your eyes on your neigh
bors. Take care of them. Do
not let them stir without watch
ing. They may do something
wrong if you do. To be sure
you never knew them to do any
thing bad, but it may be on your
account they have not. Perhaps
if it had not been for your kind
care they might have disgraced
themselves a long time ago.
Therefore do not relax any ef
fort to keep them where they
ought to be. Never mind your
own business — that will take
care of itself. There is a man
passing along—he is looking over
thp fpnpp—hp snsnininns of him:
perhaps he contemplates stealing
some of these dark nights; there
is no telling what queer fancies
he may have got into his head.
If you find any symptoms of
anyone passing out of the path
of duty, tell everyone else what
you see, and be particular and
see a great many. It is a good
way to circulate such things, it
may not benefit yourself or any
one else, but keep something
going, silence is a dreadful thing.
If, after all your watchful care
you cannot see that they have
done anything bad, throw out
hints th£t they are no better
than they should be—that you
should not wonder if the people
found out what they were after
a while, they won't carry their
heads so high. Keep it going,
and some one may take the hint
and begin and help it along after
awhile—then there will be music
and everything will work like a
charm. Follow the above direc
tions and you will be pretty sure
to make plenty of mischief.

ELECTRIC INCUBATOR IS BIG
Machine Built for New Orleans Poul
try Raiser Has Capacity of 6,000
Eggs—How Worked.
One of the largest electric incuba
tors in use anywhere in the world was
built for a poultry raiser in New
Orleans. It is 40 feet long by 5 feet
wide, and contains 40 compartments,
each having a capacity of 150 eggs,
says the Popular Mechanics. Each
compartment^ can be separately con

trolled, so that any one, or all of the
compartments, can be operated, ac
cording to the number of eggs to be
i hatched. The controlling thermo
j stats used do not completely break the
heater circuit, but introduce the com- ;
paratively high resistance of a small
electric lamp when open, thus avoid
ing sparking at the contacts.
Nothing like a few warm days to
coax the hens to lay.
Don’t let your breeders get too fat
or you will be sorry for it.
Young ducks should always have
plenty of water and shade and grit.
Green cut bone and meat foods are
the worms and bugs in the winter ra
tion.
No condition powder on the market
Is as good as wholesome food and
plenty of exercise.
Turkey gobblers should be mated
with the hens as early as possible,
certainly by the first of April.
The best layers are those fowls that
have been bred particularly with a
view to increased egg production.
Inbreeding soon lowers the vitality |
of a flock. That is vhy we should get j
new males or settings of eggs every ;
year.
There Is genuine satisfaction in
owning thoroughbred stock and they
cost no more to feed. Qo in for the
best.
Have you ever noticed the hens fol
lowing the plow and did you observe |
how fast the grubs disappeared? This
is good for the hens and the land also.
Encourage them.
A bone cutter will surely pay for
itself. Green cut bone supplies the
hen with ability to produce eggs,
nourishes her feathers and keeps her
in general good health.
