Poultry owners who wish to obtain
a satisfactory production of eggs during
the fall and early winter should arrange
to hatch pullets in March or April.
Birds hatched at this time will be well
matured in the fall. Furthermore, a
greater proportion of them will go broody
early in the spring, thus completing
the circle necessary lo production
in the fall.
Pullets hatched in the spring can
be induced to lay more abundantly
in the winter if they are properly fed.
housed and handled. On the average
general farm, very few eggs are secured
at the time when eggs bring the highest
prices. It will pay the poultry owner,
therefore, to devote a little trouble
to providing his birds with the most
favorable surroundings for the winter.
The house should be thoroughly
cleaned, disinfected, and made tight
before the cold weather sets in. If
the house has a dirt floor, it is well to
remove 3 or 4 inches of dirt from the
top and to replace this material with
dry gra\el or sand. On cement or
wooden floors 4 or 5 inches of fresh straw
or litter may be thrown down after
tne floor has been cleaned.
Ventilation is another important fac
tor to consider. The house should
be tight on three sides, but the fourth
muslin curtains may be used for from
one-third to one-half its extent. In
any case? there should be some venti
lation in the house, even on the coldest
nights. Fowls will stand considerable
cold air, provided it is dry, and venti
lation will keep the air thoroughly dry
in the house. On the other hand, drafts
are likely to cause roup and other trouble.
Many fanners, in feeding their birds,
overlook the fact that beef scrap or
some similar feed is very essential during
the winter months if a good supply of
eggs is to be obtained. A convenient
method of feeding beef scrap is in a
mash made of three parts eorn meal
and one part each of 'wheat bran, wheat
middlings, and beef scraps. Skimmed
milk or buttermilk may be used in place
xf the beef scrap, but if the supply is
limited some scrap also should be fed.
In experiments conducted the de
partment it was found that for the first
four months pullets fed a ration con
taining beef srcap produced, on an
average, 41.5 eggs, while those fed the
same ration without the scrap produced
only 18.7. The cost of feeding the
latter birds was 2.2 cents higher for
every dozen*eggs produced than in the
case of the pullets fed beef scrap.
The birds should have plenty to eat,
but they also should always be eager
for each meal. If one-third of the
scratch grain furnished them is fed
in the morning and two-thirds at night,
the birds will take more excercise than
if they receive all the grain they desire
in the morning. Good scratch mix
tures may be made of equal parts by
weight of cracked corn, wheat, and oats,
or of two parts of cracked corn and one
part each of wheat and oats.
Other directions for the winter care
of birds are contained in a new publi
cation of the United States Department
of Agriculture, Circular 71, Office of
the Secretary, Winter Egg Production.

FEDERAL1 PLAN ADOPTED
BY SWISS GOVERNMENT.
As a result of the adoption of a Fed
eral plan of combating the foot-and
mouth disease of cattle similar to that
employed in the United States, the Swiss
Government has succeeded in practically
exterminating the malady from its
country, according to Vice Consul
James L. „BurrelU of St. Gall, Switz
The Swiss agricultural interests suf
fered severely from foot-and-mouth dis
ease for a number of years, a large num
ber of the animals either perishing
or being so weakened by the malady
that they had no economic value. The
cattle-raising districts are dependent
on exportation of the animals to adjacent
countries and this business was greatly
disorganized because of the prohibitions
placed by such countries on importa
tions of the cattle on account of the
disease. Various efforts were made
separately by the various cantons to
combat the disease, each in its own way,
sometimes with injury to neighboring
districts but all remedies and rules
and regulations were in vain. Finally
a Federal veterinary bureau was es
tablished and took up the work against
the disease without regard to cantonal
boundaries, adopting the practice of
slaughtering all infected cattle. Thru
this method success eventually has been
obtained. At first this general slaughter
ing met with great opposition from
farmers and from veterinarians of the
old school, but the success was so ap
parent that all prejudice was overcome.
The principal slaughtering of infected
cattle was begun about the time of
the outbreak of the present European
war. Swiss scientists pronounced the
meat fit for^food, and since no preju
dice was manifested against it much
of it was fed to the troops. In the
United States dealers and consumers
have been unwilling to handle or eat
the meat of animals affected by foot
and-mouth disease, and as a result
the animals slaughtered in the cam
paigns against the malady have been
The chief problem in the extermination
of foot-and-mouth disease in Switzer
land hinged on the practice of keeping
the cattle in the valleys in the winter
and pasturing them in the mountains
in the summer. Each spring when
cattle were taken into the highlands,
foot-and-mouth disease would break
out in many herds and run its course
during the summer. After apparently
having regained their health, the cattle
would be gathered into the valleys
for the winter. In many places the
disease would then again break out,
later dying down, but only to. attack
the animals anew when they returned
to the mountains. The reason for this
cyclical course was found to be carriers
of the infection—animals which after
their recovery harbored the virus of
the disease on/ their hoofs or in their
bodies. Much of the success of the
Swiss in ehmintaing foot-and-m6uth
disease from their boundaries is ascribed
TO FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE
by the veterinarians of the country
to the elimination thr6ugh slaughter
of these moving carriers. It was found
in hundreds of cases that infected
animals, even after apparent complete
recovery and most careful disinfection,
still harbored the germs for several
months and in many cases even longer.
While it is anticipated that the disease
may appear sporadically in the future,
the authorities feel that they now know
how to deal with it effectively.
WHAT NEWS IS.
A South Carolina paper has pyramided
its definition of news, a definition that
is now making the rounds of the press
of the country. It says that "if any
Had a fire,
Sold a farm,
Had a baby,
Come to town,
Bought a home,
Committed a murder,
Fallen from an aeroplane,
That's news—telephone us".
But if a man is working his head off,
doing his duty every minute of the time
and never molesting any one, nor tramp
ling on the rights of his neighbors, why
then he may live and move and have his
being, unhonored and unsung the news
papers of his town and generation. The
usual things, the things we expect of a
man, those do not constitute news. But
the things he ought not to do, the things
we do not expect him to do, those come
under the category of newspaper items.
However, once in a while a man's good
acts are of such an extraordinary nature
that they find their way into the columns
of the newspapers or even magazines. In
fact, newspapers like doctors and clergy
men and lawyers concern themselves
largely with the troubles and unhappi
ness of people. Those who have law
suits, those who have doctor's bills and
those who have need of the services of the
