A NEW HECORD IN EGO PRICES.
, A rather appalling Item of news
tomes from Scranton regarding a
112,000 hen and her achievement In
producing a 25 egg. In outward
appearance the egg waa not unlike
other eggs, and the announcement of
its deposit In the nest was la the tone
of the -ordinary barnyard cackle. But
the egg was atolen, and the owner
offered a reward of $25 for Ita return
a valuation which may well cause
terror In the heart of the ultimate
consumer. Sixty cents a dozen for
eggs Is a atlft prlcet but $25 apiece
Is a frightful sign of Increasing .cost
of living. The thief had much better
have stolen the hen, killed and eaten
her, and put an end to her pernicious
activity. . Hens that lay $25 eggs
should not be tolerated. Their exam
ple Is bad. Other hens will be pos
sessed by the spirit or extortion and
refuse to lay eggs that anybody can
afford to eat. Any such tendency
should be speedily and firmly nipped
in the bud. Green's Fruit Grower.
THE VALUE OF SILAGE. "
Of course the amount of corn grown
per acre on that put into the silo
forms a basis for the value of silage
per ton,. though It is well understood
"'that forty per rent, of the feeding
value of corn is In the stalks and
blades if It Is siloed at the proper ma
turity. Touching this matter of the
value per ton of silage, Prof. Mum-
' ford, of the Illinois Experiment Sta
tion, in reply to a correspondent of
the Breeders' Gazette, says:
"If we are to assume that an acre
of corn, which would make ten
pounds of silage, would yield fifty
bushels of shelled corn at sixty cents
a bushel, the corn alone In the silage
would be worth $30, or $3 per ton ot
tilage, it we were to assume that it
would cost no more to put up the ail-
'age than to busk and market the corn.
I do not say that this Is a correct
method of figuring, but It furnishes
By adding forty per cent, to the
actual value ot the corn, on the basis
' of ten tons of silage per acre for the
value of the stalk and blade, one can
readily see the value of silage per ten.
) ! FATTENING LAMB3.
A flock master In the American
Sheep Breeder says:
After many years of experience I
have come to the conclusion that a
long, light feed Is much better than a
short, heavy one. In feeding lambs
I would proceed as follows: , Mix the
prn, oats, bran and oil meal in the
Allowing proportions: Five of corn,
two of oats, two of bran, one ot oil
meal, by measure. Just as soon as
they will eat grain would feed them
one-half pound a day in two feeds, for
one week. Then three-fourths pound
a day for one week; then one and
one-fourth pounds for one week, and
one and one-half pounds a day for
balance of time. I would feed tbem
in flat-bottomed troughs, and would
aid to teed them at daylight In the
morning, and In the evening early
. enough so that they would finish eat
' lng before dark. Do not have any
grain before tbem for any length ot
time. Make them eat up grain quick
ly, and if they get slow cut down feed
lor a few days. Would feed bean
Jiodi and ensilage mornings and
clover hay at night, with an occa.
i slonal feed ot straw so as to keep pens
, well bedded with what Is left. Bs
: sure they have all the pure water and
J salt they want at all times.
TO HATCH CHICKS.
It Is none too late to batch cblcki
In May or June If the correct methods
are need. Chicks hatched at this time
always make better show birds for
the late February shows, but if you
' want them for the fall fairs or Jan
nary and December shows, they
should be hatched as early as possi
ble. At the present time I have
c Iks that weigh two pounds. The
lal hatched chicks are always the
best color. Another advantage when
buying high priced eggs Is that you
are sure to get a better hatch, at
this time ot the season, and the chicks
grow up better.
Chicks hatched at this time should
have plenty of good, clear water and
Plenty of shade until they are three
or four weeks old. This Is very es
sentlal. When chicks are hatched
with hens we should ever be on the
watch for lice. Each setting hen
should be given a good dusting with a
good insect powder at leaBt twice
in the three weeks. After the chicks
are three daya old, dust tbem and the
fheu again. I never prefer grease, as
they are liable to get wet and cause
bad results. In May and June a box
with a hot water Jug will furnish a
desirable amount of heat tor the
chicks. The Jug should be filled up
twice each day or more. Judge B,

How to Kill Flies.
"Formaldehyde Is a good fly killer
and ran be used with splendid re
sults," said A. P. Pannlll, assistant
health commissioner of Norfolk, Va.
"We tried It last year and found It
very effective. Put two teaspoonfuls
ot formaldehyde In a plate or
saucer," said Mr. Pannlll. and place
the vessel In a light place and the
flies will go to it. After drinking
the poison they will fly away and
soon fall dead. While the flies will
drink the formaldehyde if It is plac
ed In sny part of the room, the re
sult will be better If the vessel con
taining the stuff Is placed where It
is light, because the light attracts
the flies and for that reason many
more will be put out of existence
than If the receptacle Is kept In a
dark place. To place the saucer or
plate In or near a window farly In
the morning will get the rest re
sults." Constipation cause and seriously aggra

There Is one kind ot photograph
which discriminating people rank
just a cut above the obscene photo
graph and like as little, whether the
figure of so ex-presldent or of the
village butcher appears In It. It Is
the picture of the man who has
"killed something" and who calls tbe
photographer to make a record of It,
It may be a big string of fish he Is
holding up to tbe public gaze; It may
be the limp body of an antelope be
fore which he strikes an attitude; it
may be (he prostrate carcass of a
bear or a bull elephant or a rhino
upon which be sets a triumphant
foot . Whatever it Is, these photo
graphs are abominable, and show hu
manity at Its worst advertising the
fact that while It cannot give life It
rejoices to take It away. Why do
people do this? Is It because they
think other people will doubt them
when tbey submit the figures of their
"kills"? Is it Just an odious faahlon,
thoughtlessly subscribed to? Who
will be the fearless spirit to bring
the thing Into the contempt it de
serves by having htrrmelf kodaked

Nsw Mexican Rifle,
Mexico has recently adopted a new
automatic rifle, tbe Invention of Gen
eral Mondragon, for her troops. It
Is self-loading, but not self-firing, and
the charge Is ten shots. The armies
ot all civilized countries are now ex
perimenting with automatic arms,
but Mexico seems to be the first one
to solve the problem of a practical
rifle of this class. The Mondragon
weighs but slightly more than the
Springfield of the United States
Army, and Its mechanism Is said to
be simple and practical, in that It
will stand much hard usage. When
It wsa being tested one of the guns
was fired rapidly and continuously
until It became so hot that the stock
took fire, without any Interference
with the operation of the roachan
ism. It Is capable of sixty shots a
minute. Tip In the New York Press.
