like a fairy robe.
Then there are white dresses of the

of ropes of beaus, frequently jade.
Such dresses may be cut in scallops
at the bottom, tl»e scallops, of course,
being bound by hand. These gowns
are most effective when worn with

Chine and Jaspee, Two New Colors
Offered in Paris—Craze for
Knitted Suits.
Paris Is showing an interest in
sports clothes hitherto unknown. This
is a season in which this type of dress
takes the front line in fashion’s ranks.
French women who have never in
dulged in out-of-door sports to any
extent now consider it very chic to
play golf and tennis, and those who
do not play consider It chic to wear
the same type of clothes. The Purls
dressmaker is awake to this fact and
ineludes among her newest models
many interesting novelties In sports
wear garments.
A veritable craze has sprung up for
knitted two-piece suits and two-piece
dresses in the new colors known as
chine and jaspee. The former is a
multicolored yarn either in wool or
silk, and the latter is one color mixed
with white, imitating as It were jasper.
To be really chic one must wear either
jaspee or chine knitted suits, sweaters,
dresses or blouses.
And in addition to these there is
every Imaginable type of accessory for
sports wear—the hat. the girdle and
the bag. Many of these are being de
veloped In leather with embroideries
of straw and applications of ham
mered metal. There is a vogue for
basket-woven handbags and purses
done in bright sports colors. The
leather hat, particularly in suede and
morocco, is being brought out in smart
new effects.
Effects More Trim.
Though Paris sends gowns with
pointed panels, fluttering ribbon ends
hanging below the hem, and sashes
that trull upon the floor fashionable
women are turning from these frocks
to those more trim in outline. Though

Pullets That Begin Laying Early in Fall Mature Quickest and Will Make
Desirable Additions to Breeding Flock.
(Prepared by the United States Department
of Agriculture.)
The improvident man who sold his
heating stove in July because the cir
cus was near and the winter far off
differs only in the degree of his short
sightedness from the poultry raiser
who waits until spring to select the
breeding stock that is to he used to
replenish his flock. This important
work of picking out the superior birds
must be done in the fall to get the
best results, says' the United States
Department of Agriculture, for it is
then that the greatest contrast be
tween the profitable birds and the poor
ones shows up. Os course the culling
out of the poor layers should go on
all through the summer and fall, but
at last the top-notchers should be
selected as foundation for the coming
flock, which ought to be better each
Never Use Immature Pullets.
One good rule to follow is to keep
the pullets out of the breeding flock
until they are fully matured. An im
mature bird may be a good layer and
may be from the best stock, but still
it is undesirable. Eggs from pullets
not yet fully developed will not pro
duce as large or as strong chicks as
those from older hens or fully grown
pullets. There is no difficulty in know
ing when a bird Is mature enough to
be used as a breeder, as at that time
the eggs laid will have reached the
vlze of the average produced by the
peneral run of hens in the flock.
Young pullets always lay a rather
small egg, sometimes very small at the
start. Those that mature early may
be picked out by keeping track of
the birds that start laying first in the
fall. These birds may be marked with
leg bands, so that they will not be
come mixed during the winter with
those that start their work later.
The late molters are the birds that
■tick to the job longer, and conse
quently they make up another group
that should be used in forming the
breeding flock next spring. Leg bands
may be used to distinguish these prof
itable birds, or, better, the early mol
ters may be marketed so that they
will no longer have an opportunity to
-keep down the average egg production
of the flock.
The general-purpose breeds, which
include the Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Is
land Reds, and Wyandottes, as a rule
are not profitable after the second
year. It is therefore advisable to cull
out all of the older birds of this class.
Os these, the late molters are the
ones to select for breeders, as in
the case of fowls of any other breed.
But the selection of birds on the
basis of age and time of molting is
not all the preparation that need be
made for raising the foundation for
the new flock. The health and thrift
of the fowls must be looked after
carefully during the winter. After
selecting the breeding birds the poul
try house needs close attention. Keep
ing it in sanitary condition is one of
the important points; also the com
fort of the house, which is closely con
nected with the health of the birds.
Fowls are very sensitive to moisture
conditions, and these should be con
trolled carefully by ventilation. When
moisture from the fowls gathers on
the ceiling and walls there is apt to
be trouble soon. In cold weather this
moisture may collect in the form of
frost, but the heat from the sun in
the middle of the day will melt the
frost, and the water, dripping down,
will make the litter wet. Hens are a
good deal like sheep In their sensitive
ness to wet feet, either in the house
or when outside, and they cannot be
kept in good health on damp litter.
A sick hen is a hard proposition to
deal with if you expect to get out with
a profit on her. It is a lot cheaper to
depend on dry litter than on medicines
to cure colds and roup. Roup is the
sequel of colds, and when it gets into
i flock, as one poultryman puts it,
rou are on the rocks.
Plenty of fresh air in the house is a
vell-recognlzed preventive of colds in
Aumans, and it Is Just as efficacious
In the case of poultry. The open front
Douse with cloth curtains is the most
practical means for the average Cock
owner to keep the house thoroughly
aired, and the fowls will not suffer
’rom the cold If the building has been
properly planned; also the egg produc
tion will keep up. By going into the
bouse frequently in changing winter
weather It will be easy to Judge of the
>ondltion of the atmosphere and bring
t to normal by adjustments of cur
alns and windows. Moisture can be
epl from •cumulating by opening up
the house for a thorough ventilation
on sunny days.
The most successful houses, ns found
by the experiences of hundreds of
poultry raisers and by experiments of
the Department of Agriculture and
State experiment stations, are from
36 to 20 feet deep if the open-front
plan is followed. From this point the
nearer toward the front the fowls are
moved the fewer eggs are produced. In
smaller houses the relative proportion
of openings in the front of the house
must be reduced during the winter
months in order to keep the fowls
comfortable. Open fronts or openings
covered with cotton cloth are most
practical in deep houses.
Government Expert in Europe
Searching for Information.
Doctor Stakman, Minnesota Patholo
gist, Visiting Various European
Countries, Making Detailed
Study of the Disease.
(Prepared by the United States Department
of Agriculture.)
In the hope of finding facts that will
be of value in fighting the stem rust
of wheat in this country, Dr. C. E.
Stakman, agent of the United States
Department of Agriculture and path
ologist of the Minnesota Agricultural
experiment station, is spending the
summer in various countries of Eu
rope making detailed studies of the oc
currence and severity of the disease,
especially with reference to its ap
pearance on barberry bushes. He is
also collecting much information on
rusts In general.
In France and Spain, where he vis
ited the principal wheat-growing re
gions, he found no stem rust on wheat,
oats, barley or rye. Although there
were many barberries, few of them
showed any signs of this rust, but In
Spain plant pathologists Informed him
that the common barberry and an in
digenous species are responsible for
the early appearance of stem rust In
the spring.
Doctor Stakman reports great inter
est In breeding and selection of wheat
varieties resistant to this disease and
emphasizes particularly the work of
several eminent French Investigators.
While traveling through France,
Spain and Italy he found little stem
rust, but this little was always asso
ciated with barberry bushes. The con
sensus of opinion In these countries Is
that, although stem rust does occur re
mote from the barberry, it develops
later in the crop season and causes
very much less damage than In those
sections where the shrub is common.

Much Valuable Experience Accumu
lated by Scientists Given In
Recent Circular.
(Prepared by the United States Department
of Agriculture.)
As the territory infested by the cat
tle tick gradually contracts under the
pressure of eradication work, the dif
ficulties in the way of farther reduc
tion of the area Increase. In the 15
years since the campaign was started
to starve and poison the tick out of
existence, counties and states have
been freed of the Insect at a rapid
rate but there are knotty spots in the
remaining ticky territory, and progress
toward the goal of a tick-free country
will be slower than in the past.
However, those who are now en
gaged in cleaning up infested country
have the advantage of much valuable
experience accumulated by scientists,
veterinarians and local authorities,
while more than 500,000 square miles
were being made tickless. These
fundamental facts, a knowledge of
which is essential to those taking the
lead in eradication, particularly the in
spectors, have been gathered into a
circular, "How to Get the Last Tick,”

Healthy Animals Become Infested With
Internal Worms From Feed,
Water and Soil.
The main trouble which hog raisers
have in raising pigs seems to be that
when a trouble, such as worms, gets
started in the lots, they let it spread
too rapidly over the entire herd.
Healthy pigs become infested with in
ternal worms from feed, water and
soil which has become infested by
other pigs having the same trouble.
The logical thing, then. Is to see that
pigs have a frequent change of pas
ture. This Is not so big a problem
where they are given plenty of range.
There are other desirable points In
having o range of pasture for the
growing pigs, although they can be
raised successfully, and are so raised,
in close quarters if these are kept
clean. Dividing up a pasture and let
ting the pigs run a while in each part
will keep the pigs healthy and give the
pasture 6 chance to come back when
not in use.
Some Grower* Can Use to Good Ad

“Generally the same variety of corn

Is not necessary that corn for good

be limited to varieties which will pro
