In common geese the males and
tomales dlerer In plumage , but this Is
not UIO case wIth the puro.bred geose.
In theIr case the males mid females
are alllee. The largest geese nro the
' 1'oulouse , and these are popular wIth
men that have a fancy for largo fowls.
If 1\ man wnnts In'orR , however , he
will choose the ChIna. ' 1'hoso that
ralso the geese largely for ( enthers
will choose the Emhden , because theIr
( cathers are lJUro white , and hence
the marltat value of thom Is greater
than wIth those geese whoso feathers
are multI-colored. If a man merely :
wants 10 produce blrls ( that can be
mllrltcled to good advantage he will
IInd a cross of the 'foulouso with the
Embrlen gl\'o good results.
Where geese have access to a ponll
or a river they wJ1J derlvo much of
t:1elr : suhslslenco from ' '
the water. 'I'ho
writer Imow of a man that lived on the
\Junlts \ oC a rIver and had a large flocle
of goeHe. Across the shallow rh'er
was a starch factor ) ' , and from this
a Itrge : amount of IJoaled com dallv
ran from the sluices Into the rIver.
1'ho geese made their livIng ocr thIs !
corn , which they fished up out of the
water. It made a IlorCeet food 80
far as softness and digestibility wel'
concerned. 'fhey balanced their ra
tlon with the seml.aquatlc plants grow.
Ing In the rl\"er and along Its mar ln.
There are manr ; 110 \ situations where
a flock of geese would save wbat
would otherwIse go to WIISto ,
Shallow ponds In slimmer teem with
fish , water beetles , worm : > and other
forms of life. A fiocl , of gCl'SO shows
great enjoyment In hunting their own ,
food In sllch places. Geese are also
consumers of some of tile bllgs that
disturb lhe peace of the farmer. One
man told the writer how he used to
use them for .
the destruction of po.
tate bugs. 'I'he geese would travel
down the rows , darting their heads
now to tills : llde and now to that.
They consumed In the course of n
day a very largo number of bugs.
The fault to be found with them was
that they dId not do their worle per.
fectly , but left colonIes of bugs here
and there , whIch later had to be des.
troyed by other agencIes.
'fho geese lays from twenty.fivo to
fifty eggs and Ir she could be bred'
up to lay more would become more
popular on the farm. Perhaps It Is . ,
posslblo to ultimately develop geese
to lay as mnny eggs as hens. but that
result Is a long way In the Cuture
at the present time.
Fr shness of Eggs.
There are many old ' \'a 's of test.
Ing the Creshness of eggs. Some of
them may bo of Ultle yalue. Here
Is one that Is going the rounds , but
for whIch wo cannot vouch. It may
be al1 rIght : Eggs arc placed In a pan
at water , givIng each room enough
so that Its motions will not be Inter.
fored with by the others. The aIr in
the egg wJ1J be governed nccordlng to
the age or the egg , If the egg haE !
been kept In a moderately warm stato.
U the eggs ure just laId they will be
motionless. U they re moro thun a
week old they wJ1J partly stand on
the Ultle end. 'I'hls Is becuuse the
aIr chamber Is In the other end of
the egg. This aIr chamber grows
larger as the egg becomes older anll
the molsturo In It evaporates. When
the eggs get stili older they will stand
up straight In the water and when
very old will fioat ,
'I'hls test of course would be of no
value in the case of plcltled eggs or
or eggs l\Opt In cold storage where
the temperature was so low that the
evaporation of molsturo from the eggs
would be very small.
Fowls for Market.
The farmer should not walt till ho
Is ready to marlcot hIs hens and roost.
ors beCoro separating them from the
rest of the fiock. ' 1'hose that are to
bo so dIsposed of should be separated
from the rellt : at thIs tlmo. If they
are to bo sold for the ThanksgIvIng
marlcct they shouM ho placed on fat.
tenlng food at thIs time. Chlcleens
for market should bo made as fat as
posslblo , as the bu'ers want them that
way. 'I'ho fat Is not Indeed eaten , but
It in some way maIms the lIesh of
the fowls tenderer and the buyers
reallzo that. Moreo\'er , they are will.
Ing to llIlY for the tenderness that
comes Crom the fattenIng process. The
birds will also bo tender because they
have been Ileprlved of exercise. Fowls
that exerclso are naturnllr ; tougher
than these that do not. Four weeks
feedIng will somethnefi add two
\Iounds each to fowls anti thIs maltes
qulto a dIfference with thcm when
they uro marlccted.
Don't Market Unfattencd Stock.
Wo hnvo seen the traveling bu'er

corn and toll the hens and roosters
about hIm , then draw them Into tbe
honynrd and the worle of selecting

gaunt and lean shan1ced. They
weighed light when Il\1t on the scales
or hung on the steelyards. The farm.

The Prairie Dog Nuisance.
Pralrlo dogs have been declared to
bo a nulsanco b ) ' the laws or Nobrasl (
nnd other slates. 'rite Nebrasl ( law
goes so Car as 10 declare thnt any
one havIng land Infested by praIrie
dogs and not getting rId ot them Is
malnlalnlng a nuIsance. The harbor.
er of these anlmala Is made lIable
Cor damages commItted on otlter land ,
HIghway commIssioners are Instruct.
cd to Bee that the law Is enCorced.
In the discharge of hIs duty connected
with the extermination of pralrlo dogs
the commIssIoner Is allowed $3.00 per
day and expenses and Instructed to
add the amount to the taxes oC the
land where the work ot exterminating
pralrio dogs Is done.
'I'hls malws it necessary for the
owncr of land to be vigilant In the
exi.ermlnnllon of the nuIsance. Tha
qulcl < CHt and eheapost way to get rId
of the dogs Is to polson tholl1 , and
thIs Is gonernllr ; resorted to. In mak
Ing up the polson three ounces 01
str'chnlno and hulf a IJound of potas
slull1 c'unlde are IJut Into one quart
of boiling wUter. ' 1'0 thIs two quart ! >
of molasses and a teaspoonful of 011
of anIse are added. Then a bushel 01
wheat la placed In a tight recelltaclr.
and the mixture Is poured over It.
It Is then stll'l'ed , while fuur pounds
of finely ground corn meal .Is poured
Into It , The molaAscs mal\Cs the liquid
adhesIve , so It wfll stick to the graIns
of wheat. The object ofIsIng the
corn meal Is to ahsorb the SUllerlluous
liquid or syrup and thus enable till ; !
grains of wheat to cal'l'y a largE : _ '
amount of the polson. ThIs poisoned
graIn Is sown about the pluces In.

The Soy Bean In the North.

, thnt It can be gt'Owu
as far > north as dent corn thrIves
The farmers of MaIne who grow largely -

will only need to have potush and
phosphorus added to It , If it needs

be thoroughly IJropared before thE

In the West , as In the East , the
great need of the farm Is to have a
cheap source of proteIn. Where a

easy to belle\'e
that the Rllage made from soy beans
would be bettm' than the sllngo made

'I'he SO ) ' llean has been less adver.

seems , however , that It has a wh1er
ran go of growth , at least towards the
north , than bas tllO cow pea. It will
be wIse for our farmers to Lt.y a
small plot of soy beans next spring.
