sanitar'y measures must be applied at
once to control this infectious disease
of poultry which spreads rapidly
through the flock with high mortality.
Turkeys, ducks, geese, pigeons, cage
birds and chickens are all susceptible
to fowl cholera.
Cholera is transmitted from flock to
flock by means of sick' or recently re
covered fowl which have been placed
in the flock without being subjected to
a period of quarantine. The disease is
also spread by wild birds or by per
sons, animals, or utensils which have
been on infected premises. A yellow
ish coloration of the droppings is an
early indication of the disease. Soon
diarrhea develops, considerable fever
is shown, and the bird loses its lively
allp'aranee. separates itself from the
rest of the flock and api ears dull. de
jected, and sleepy. It nat lnnr
searches for food, but sits with head
drawn down to the body or lurn+l'+
backward and resting in tll feathers
about the wing. The 1lumgage soon
loses its brilliance, the wings droop,
the appetite is diminished and the
thirst increased; the comb and wattles
may be a dark bluish red from en
gorgemnent with poorly oxygenated
blood, or they may be pale and blood
less on account of the congestion of
the internal organs, especially the
8yniptoms of Stricken Birds.
The affected birds soon become very
weak, drowsy, and often sleep so
soundly during the last day or two of
their lives that It is difficult to arouse
them. If obliged to move they stagger
forward for a few steps in an uncer
tain manner and with dragging wings.
The crop is generally distended with
food and apparently paralyzed. The

Organizations Urged to Prevent Care.
lessness Which Permits Mongrel
Stock, Dirty Nests and Other
. Undesirable Conditions.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
If egg producers would work togeth
er to reduce egg losses much of the
$45,000,000 toll which results annually
from careless handling could be elimi
nated. Egg circles, the name given
to associations of egg producers, have
been urged by the United States de
partment of agriculture for a number
of years. The work which these or
ganizations can do now to save food
is of the utmost importance.
Egg circles watch the egg crop, not
only in its handling, but in its produc
tion. They strive to prevent the care
lessness which permits mongrel stock,
dirty nests, stolen nests of broody
hens, unconfined males, late-maturing
pullets, and other undesirable condi
tions to exist on egg farms. Every ef
fort is made to reduce the high per
centage of small, cracked, dirty, stale,
heated and rotten eggs. Many market
ing problems are also overcome.
One very successful organization of
egg producers has a large incubator
house of 12,000 egg capacity where
early chicks are produced for the mem
Sbers at a low cost. This is done in or
der to obtain early maturing pullets,
thus securing eggs during the fall
when eggs usually are scarce. The
company also has a receiving room for
eggs where they are candled, sorted
to weight-about 24 ounces to the
dozen-packed in cartons and shipped
on contract orders. Their eggs are all
guaranteed to be according to grade,
they advertise the funcy grades on
their cartons and cases, and market
prices are paid to the members. Twice
a year dividends are paid each mem
ber in proportion to the amount of
eggs marketed through the company
and the time of year eggs are brought
in, a larger dividend being paid per
dozen for eggs brought in during the
fall and winter than for those re
ceived during the spring and summer,
estimated by months. A regular trade
is established with discriminating con
sumers, with city clubs, with the best
class hotels and restaurants, and with
fancy grocers for a supply each day
or week.
The reputation that is established
enables the association to fix its prices
at several cents a dozen above the reg
ular market quotations, as fancy trade
is willing to pay a premium for a guar
anteed article. Most egg circles buy
chicken feed and other poultry sup
plies in quantities for their members.
While at first the number of eggs to
be marketed may not warrant a cen
tral station with a manager to inspect,
grade and market the whole product,
the aim should be to develop to that
Specialists of the department of ag
riculture will aid producers in organ
izing community egg circles and also
in problems of production and market
ing. In Farmers' Bulletin 656 sugges
tions and forms are offered as aids in
organizing and managing such co-op
erative associations.

It is necessary that the rope be held
by an assistant, as In the event of the
animal struggling during the opera- I
tion so as to throw itself off its feet,
or if there appears to be danger of its
choking, the rope may be slackened
promptly at the word of the operator
and the animal partly released. This,
however, is rarely necessary, for as
sIoon as the head is secured the oper
ator should be ready, standing at the
right shoulder of the animal with his
saw, and proceed to saw off first the
right and then the left horn. It is a
good plan before commencing the real
work to experiment upon an animal
in the matter of control by tying the
