How much exercise a fowl needs is
a matter of sharp dispute. Some con
tend that the requirement is large,
while others are Just as sure that it is
small. About all are united in saying
that some exercise is required, unless
the fowl is being put through her final
fattening period for the market Young
and growing fowls seem to need a good
deal of exercise to assist them in the
digestion of the very large amount of
food they consume. Exercise brings
the lungs into greater activity and this
means the burning up of fat to make
energy to drive the machinery of the di
gestive organs. It is probable that a
young fowl that exercises grows fast
er than one that does not exercise. It is
considered advisable to have larger
runs for the young fowls than for the
maturer ones, the latter being able to
keep thrifty with very little exercise.
When fowls are to be fattened it is
quite usual to pen them up for a few
weeks. When this is done and the feed
is high in quality, it will be found dan
gerous to carry the feeding operations
and non-exercise too far. In European
countries when birds are to be fattened
they often place them in cages in dark
ened rooms and cram them with food
at stated intervals. If this is kept up too
long, however, the birds collapse. Their
digestive organs do not receive the en
ergy necessary to drive them, as the
lungs operate but slowly, and thus car
bon is not changed into force. Laying
hens seem to need little exercise, pub
lic opinion to the contrary notwithstand
ing. While it is taught by many poul
try-wise people that the hen to lay well I
must be constantly exercising, experi
ments at our stations have shown the
hens that got no exercise laid as well
as those that got exercise. But it must
be remembered that their feed was prop- (
erly balanced. If hens be fed a corn
ration and given no exercise, they are
very likely to cease laying on account
of becoming too fat-Farmers' Review. I

"Brute!" ejaculated a gentleman wearing
eye glasses and grassy whiskers, who was un

the conversation, relates Judge.
"It didn't do any good," continued the
engineer, "so I shut her off; but still she was
jumping pretty hard and sliding around-"
"Infamous!" said the grassy-whiskered
"Sliding around. so I gire her air-"
"Ah, then you have some little instinct of
kindness," growled the incensed listener.
"But it wasn't any use and so I jumped
and got away just when she began to smash
"And I don't blame her one bit!" asserted
the man with the eye glasses and the grassy
beard. "It's a pity she didn't smash you,
so you couldn't come here and boast of your
cruelty. I am not surprised at the number
of divorces nowadays."
She Didn't Care.
Maplehill Ia., Aug. 10th.-"I felt as
though I didn't care whether I lived or died,
I was so miserable all the time."
In these words does Miss Nellie Barfoot,
of this place, describe her condition. Every
woman who is, or has been, sick and suf
fermg will understand and appreciate just
how Miss Barfoot felt, and there arenodoubt
many thousands of similar cases.
It is truly an awful thing when a woman
gets so low that she can say "I don't care
whether I live or die."
But Miss Barfoot tells a different story to
day, and her words should guide every suf
fering woman to the path of health andhap
