FOR EGG PRODUCTION
Important to Give Hens Feed
Rich in Protein.
Clover and Alfalfa Are Excellent
Chicken Feeds and Should Be Used
More Extensively by Farmers
During Winter Months.
(By OSCAR ERF.)
The food requirements of a laying
hen are very like those required by a
growing chicken. The production of
eggs requires material similar to that
required to produce flesh. One addi
tion to the list is, however, required
for egg production, which is lime, of
which the shell of the egg is formed.
In the summer time hens on the range
will find sufficient lime to supply their
needs. Yarded or shut-in chickens
should be supplied with more lime
than the food contains. Crushed
oyster shell is now sold for this pur
pose, and answers the purpose ad
A supply of green food is one of the
requisites of successful winter feeding
Vegetables and refuse from the
kitchen help out in this matter, but
seldom furnish a sufficient supply of
this kind. Vegetables are sometimes

especially grown for this purpose.
Mangels and sugar beets are excel
lent. Cabbage, potatoes and turnips
answer the purpose fairly well. Man
gels are fed by splitting in halves and
sticking to nails driven in the wall.
Clover and alfalfa are exctlent chick
en feeds and should be more exten
sively used by farmers in winter feed
ing. The leaves that shatter off in the
mow are the choicest portion for
chicken feeding, and are best fed by
scalding with hot water and mixing
in a mash.
Almost all grains are suitable foods
for hens. Corn, on account of its
cheapness and general distribution,
has been more widely used than any
other grain for feeding chickens.
Many people, having found out that
an addition of other kinds of food to
a corn diet results in a better egg
yield, have concluded that corn is not
a good egg-making food. This con
clusion is a mistake; and, while exper
iments have shown that a diet of
mixed foods is superior tq a diet com
posed chiefly of corn, it has also been
found by repeated bxperiments if hens
are supplied with green foods, as al
falfa, with mineral matter, some form
of milk or meat food, and are forced
to take sufficient amount of exercise,
the danger from overfatness due to
the feeding of a reasonable amount of
corn need not be feared.
As has already been emphasised,
the variety of food given is more es
sential than the kind. Do not feed
one grain all the time. The more vari
ety fed the better. Corn and Kamr
corn, being cheap grains, will perhaps
form the major portion of the ration,
but, even if much higher in price, it
will pay to add a portion of such
grains as wheat, barley, oats or buck

Good Maryland Pickle for Keeping

An excellent Maryland pickle for
preparing beef or pork is as follows:
Six gallons of fresh well water, nine

brown sugar, three ounces of pulver
ized saltpeter and one quart of New
Boil all together, skimming it care
fully. When boiled, set aside to get
cold before using. Pack the large
hams and shoulders in clean, well
scalded barrel or stone tub. at the bot
t tom, at medium sized pieces next and
and the middlings at the top. Put
two small pieces of boards over the
meat, then weight with one or more
stones. Pour on the cold brine. The
brine should be fully one inch over
the boards. If the meat is not fully
covered with the brine the meat will
spoil. Place the barrel in a cool, well
aired cellar. The large hams should
remain in the pickle 28 days; the
medium sized hams and shoulders.e
21 days; the middlings and Joints, 44
If the meat remains in brine longer
it will be hard. At the end of this
time take out the meat, wash off each
piece in clear, cold water, wipe dry
with a clean cloth and hang up in
smokehouse. The pieces should not
touch one another. Let the meat dry
for a few days. Then smoke with
hickory stumps or oak wood. Corn
cobs make a sweet smoke. Smoke the
meat, with cool smoke a mahogany
brown. Make a number of cotton
sacks, a little larger than the hams.
After the hams and shoulders are well
smoked, place one in each sack and
press with the hands a little fine cut
timothy hay around the hams. Tie the
sacks closely and hang up in a dark,
cool room. No flies or bugs will get
into the meat if the sacks are tied
tight The sweating of the hams will
be taken up by the hay, and the hay
will impart a fine flavor to the meat.
The hams should be smoked and sack
ed by the middle of January, before
the weather turns mild. Hogs are in
their highbst perfection from 16 to 24
months old, when they do not weigh
more than 150 or 160 pounds. Hogs
grazed on grass and clover pasture
and fattened on old corn will make

CHEAPLY MADE ROPE HALTER
Directions Given for Making Noose
That is Inexpensive, Yet Conveni
ent and Serviceable.
(By R. 0. WEATHERSTONE.)
Rope halters are inexpensive, yet
very convenient and serviceable, es
pecially in handling cattle. There are
various styles of rope halters, but the
one-loop halter is probably the most
common. Twelve or thirteen feet of
One-Loop Halter, Fig. 1.
three-eighths or one-half-inch rope is
sufficient tp make a halter and have
plenty of lead.
The one-loop halter must be made
especially for the size of the head on
which it is to be used, uas it is not
adJustable. On this account, it is
safer to use than a two-loop halter.
To make this halter, measure from
the end of the rope, about the distance
required to go around the nose. At
this point (b), Fig. 1, make a loop,
splice the loop just large enough for
the rope to pass through. Next, meas
ure from the loop, spice the distance
required to go over the head and down
to the proper point on the opposite
side. (It is well to measure this
lalter on the animal on which it is to
be used.) When this distance has
One-Loop Halter, Fig. 2L
been determined, spice the nose-plce
-(d) Fig. 1-into the cheek-plece, as
at (a) Fig. 1. Now pass the long end
of the rope through the loop and make
an end splice in the end of the rope.
The halter is now complete. (*er
Brains Make Difference.
A great deal of butter that sells
for 30 cents per pound and the other
kind that sells for 15 cents per pound
is raised on the same land, with only
a rail fence between. The difference
lies entirely in the brains of the men
who produce it and the man who puts
it on the big markets.

one horse to another any more than

I Write to Peruna Testimonials If You

The +"llowing letter was received
by Dr. Hartman through his regular

Should you conclude to try Peruna
for your catarrh I would be very glad
to hear of the result. I can assure you
that no use will be made of your let

Mrs. Bogle very kindly consented to
have me use her letter, which is my
reason for doing so, and you will be

WHERE WE FIND EMERALDS
Famous Muzo Mines in the Republic
of Colombia Produce Finest
The finest emeralds are found in
the Republic of Colombia, at the fa
r mous Muzo mines in the department
of Boyaca, seventy miles north by
west of Bogota. which have been
worked since 1658. The Spaniards
mined there in the middle of the six
tenth century, but withdrew after
a time, owing to continual fighting
with the Indians; with the result that
for awhile the locality of the mines
was unknown. They are now worked
by an English company, in partner
ship with the government. The emer-.
alds at Muzo occur in calcite veins
running through black carboniferous
limestone in all directions and at all
angles. Often the limestone is cov
ered with'earth, in which bushes and
trees are growing; this has to be
cleared before prospecting is possible.
When calcite veins have been located,
the side of the hill is dug away in
"banks," usually by Indians, whose
chief tool is a steel bar forged to a
point at one end. The pieces of cal
cite vein are examined superficially
for emeralds, and are then set aside
for conveyance to the sorting-shed.

and the emeralds are divided into fif
