E.J Kellogg and John Stokes, both have extensive caves dug into the sides of the hill near Craig, and are talking about adding to them. It is currently reported thai subject of proper venti lation is now under consideration by these gentlemen, and they are seeking advice and practical suggestions from their friends. Mr. Stokes is liothered because he has heard that cold air rises in the winter time. But Mr. Kellogg, whose cave still shows the marks of the spade, and populated with several large families of fine hogs, is worrying because it is nee essary to build a brick chimney to sup port the tile ventilating shaft that shoots up through his cave roof to the oiien air. His cave is so warm that he can keep it from freezing by placing couple of buckets of water on a shelf out of the reach of the porkers. Mr. Stokes makes a speciality of chickens, and as soon as he can decide he question of ventilation, he willt place a magnificent glass front in his cave; until then be will, as heretofore. obtain fresh air bv leaving the fro.it door open. Somebody was telling Mr. Stokes adout the Barred Plymouth Rocks, new breed, a few of which were on ex hibition at our recent poultry show. Incidentally he states that the old style Rocks were free silver chickens, while the ones he has now are, he thinks, strain of the golden winged Plymouth Rocks their wings having a beautiful gulden tinge. He is also interested in some beautiful speckled chickens that he has seen: he has beard that they originated at Hamburg, Iowa. Mr. Stokes1 chickens are not thoroughbred yet, but he says they will be as quickly as he can discover a suitable name for them. If you want to hear a pair of cranks talk, get Kellogg and Stokes to expit iating on the merits of their caves mid their cave-dwellers. The Weather.
