Sertllly of Eggs.
From Farmers' Review: Hatch- f
ing season 'is either now with, or soon s
will be with, poiltry raisers, the time
depending upon surroundings; and the f
fertility of eggs is the needful thing; C
the way to secure fertile eggs is a way
all wish to know. Some Uay a good
p~r cent of fertile eggs is not to be
had if.the fowls are conflned'to a lim
ited range, but we have had and have
known others to have a 95 per cent t
of fertile eggs from yarded fowls. Last C
year ours had a limited (very) range,
the yard in which six pullets, two hens
and one cockerel were confined being
about two rods square, and in this
enclosure the roosting room and
scratch shed were placed.
You may say, the per cent of fertile
eggs was good, but perhaps the whole 1
number of eggs was small. No, the t
average from the eight hens from the
15th of February to the last of May t
was 6% eggs per day; a higher aver- I
age than we were able to get from the i
outside hens. The average would t
doubtless have been higher if we could 1
have secured fresh meat at all times ¬
for them. We fed a mash of wheat x
bran, mixed stiff with kitchen scraps 1
and salty dishwater of a morning;
about a quart of mash; at noon wheat t
or oats was scattered among leaves in
the scratch shed; at night a quart of 1
shelled corn was thrown among the
Nothing pleases hens better than to
dig up fresh moist earth for them, and t
I think there is nothing healthier.
Green food, cut grass, rye and wheat
was fed them every day-all they c
would eat; but the way confined hens
enjoy their green meal the best is to
place a slab of sod in their pen, or I
even pull up large tufts of grass.
No need to fear infertile eggs from i
yarded fowls if you will pen only
healthy fowls. Give a variety of food; i
induce exercise, and keel) quarters
clean. I prefer a yearling cockerel to
an older male. Whatever age the head i
of the pen must be in the very pink of
perfection as regards health and vigor.
One should have not more than eight
hens to one male of the larger breeds;
several more hens may be mated to
a male if of the small breeds. ov
chicks were B. P. Rocks.
Gather the eggs every day. Keep in
an even temperature, several degrees
above freezing; turn every day and
you may keep them three weeks; then
set and receive good hatches as far as
the age of the eggs is concerned. It
will probably take from 15 to 24 hours
longer to hatch them. The above care
applies equally as well to setting eggs
from range fowls, or any other poultry.
If you would once try the plan of se
lecting eight or a dozen of your best
hens, mating with a No. 1 cockerel,
yarding and using these eggs to hatch
from, you would never try other ways.

x Prof. G. L. McKay of Iowa. after a
visit to Europe, had this to say about
I water in butter:
No subject interests me more than
water. I tested a lot of butter in Eng
I land for moisture, and the driest but
ter I found was from New Zealand.
some of it running down to about
I eight per cent. Danish butter aver
ages about fifteen per cent. Russia
was very irregular, some very fine, but
a good deal of it had a rank flavor.
It will get over that after awhile,
however, and I believe that Russia
will come to the front rapidly. Some
of the highest selling butter was the
French two pound unsalted rolls. My
.experience with the Irish butter is
that it lacks body, which results large
ly from the fact that it is churned at
a high temperature. It contains lots
1 of water, some samples testing twen
ty to twenty-five per cent moisture.
This question is now before the Eng
lish parliament. and it seems probable
that it will be settled on the basis of
about fifteen to sixteen per cent water.
I It has been a great problem to me
t that the Donish ,utr.r has a higher
percentage of water than our- has, yet
at the same time it has a mealy, dry
Sappearance. Investigation showed
that their method of churning and
F working was peculiar. The churning
- is done at a moderately high tempera
ture and the butter comes soft. It is
dropped at once into coldt water and
then pst on the table and worked
three-quarters of a minute, after which
it is again put in cold water for a
moment.then brought back and worked
from one to one and a quarter minutes.
This makes only two minutes of work
ing. When finished it is packed into
kegs for the market. It is said that
Sthis method is used to get the butter
f milk out and have it clear, but it is
Sprobably intended to work the water
Sinto the butter as well. Danish butter
will average five per cent more water
than ours and yet does not show it.
Eggs for hatching should be com
paratively fresh. That is, they shobI
not be over ten days old, though some
hatchable eggs are over three weeks
e old when they go under the hen or
into the incubator. At this time of
year it is easier to keep eggs in a
t condition for setting than it will be
later in the season when the heat is
t gpneater. Eggs should be kel- at be
twveen 40 and 50 degrees if they are
to be kept for some weeks before being
used. This is a difficult tihing to do
unless the arrangement be very per
if feet. The natural temperature of the
d earth is about 55 degrees, and this is
, probably as near an ideal temperature
e as we can get for our eggs. We can
give them to a considerable extent

It is a poor economy that leads to
the purchase of .musty and even moldy

it is the practice to try to save it by bi
feeding it to the Ioultry. It is is
charged by fanciers that musty grain w

ready to accept it on its face. It is
now well established that some of the p,

point in view. Until they are proved m

Pure Bredd Most Profitable. CI
We continually meet people who tell al
us that the crosses are far superior to ni
the purebred cattle for dairy purposes. bi
Against that we have the fact that all
the great records ever made have been tl
from purebred cattle, carefully bred m
for many generations. Thus we have
three purebred cows belonging to the w
Duke of Westminster, that gave 1,106 pi
gallons, 1,110 gallons and 1.448 gallons, m
respectively, in twelve months; this
last one being at the rate of almost
sixteen quarts a day the whole year
through. All dairymen will know as
a fact, as well as all breeders of any
kind of stock that if you breed from t
crossbreds you can never tell what the
result will be. It may take after its
sire, dam, great-grandsire or even fur- .b
We are not by any means advising
dairymen to go to the expense of pur
chasing a purebred herd right off, but
what we would strive to impress upon tl
each and all is to use only purebred
bulls in their herds. See that the bull tl
is from a good milking strain, even is
if you have to give a seemingly big o,
price for him. His cost will be noth
ing compared to the herd when the it
heifers begin to come in. The only t,
sure way to get together a really good d
herd is to breed it. You will have to t,
buy the best you can to start with;
then pick out your cows according to y
how they turn out, and have the heifer I
calves from the best, making sure that g
the bull is from a milking strain and g
purebred. By doing this, in a few r
years you can get together a really t,
good herd, and, by judicious culling, i
every year it will be improving and f
the average yield gradually rising. The ii
best investment that can be made for
a dairy farm is a good bull. Even p
with poor cows to start with, no man p
need despair of getting a fair herd to- h
gether if he can only obtain a milking ii
strain on the sire's side. It is then v
only a matter of time and careful se- v
lection.-West Australian Settlers' q
A Moose anid Horse RaeP. t
While the peculiar pacing gait of a a
moose will not carry him over the s
ground as rapidly as the deer or cari- v
bou, his endurance far surpasses that d
of either of these animals. For a t
short sprut or in very deep snow the s
caribou can easily discount the moose,
but for an all-day's jaunt, where the
course is fairly open, the moose has
no rival. Many years ago, when Sir
Edmund Head was governor of the
Province of New Brunswick. he owned t
a tame moose that performed remark
able feats of speed and endurance. On
one occasion the governor wagered
$2.500 that his moose could travel from
Fredrickton to St. John over the ice, a
distance of eighty-four miles. in faster
time than any team of horses in the
stud of Lord Hill of the Fifty-second
regiment. A sledge was attached to
the moose and another to the horses.
The river ice was covered with about
eight inches of snow. The start was
made opposite government house at b
o'clock in the morning. In seven hours
the moose and his driver were in 1

-Small Army of Watehmen Always

In the panic of 1893 there was a sud
den call for bank notes from banks in
all parts of the country... The demand,
beginning in modern terms, presently 7
increased to enormous proportions. It
wiped out the $5;000,000 .upplyof bank 4
notes in the treasury vaults in no tame,
and still the call continued.
The issue division of the treasury de
parment was set to work double time
in the effort to Keep up the supply. It'`
fell behind hopelessly from the first.
and at one time the:e were requ sts for
some $30,000,000 more than could be
Naturally this increased the panic
and aided in bringing about disaster,
and the authorities at Washington
came in for severe criticism. Their
answer was that the $5,000,000 in bank
notes on hand took up all the availa
ble space for such storage.
"Provide more space, then," said
the banking interests; and the govern
ment set about doing so.
The result of that complication is a
wonderful new vault, just now com
pleted, which will store $90,000,000 in
money. With this enormous sum on
hand it is not probable that aiy de
mand will be able to exhaust the im
The new vault is 12 feet square and
its walls rise to a height of 12 feet.
The lining is composed of IBessemer
steel plates three-eights of an inch in
thickness, and these are securely fas
tened by means of huge screws and a
bolts to a framework of steel, which is a
built into the masonry.
All the pigeon holes, nearly 6,000 in I
number, are of steel, and there is not
an inch of inflammable material in
the furnishings of the vault.
This new vault can be entered only
through the old vault, and its location
is impossible to determine from the
outside of the building. The govern
ment has even gone so far as to put
in false windows, heavily curtained,
to deceive anyone who might try to
determine the resting place of the
treasure from outside.
Two special guards who ha\ve for
years done sentry duty over the bank
notes. guard the new vault as they
guarded the old. lBut even if these
guards could be overcome the bank
