Recently a gentleman said that he
had a mortgage on a farm and was In?
clined to buy a number of Incubators
and put them on the farm in charge of
his brother. He thought he could thus
build up a good poultry business. Tils
Idea seemed to bo that all he had to do
was to put the money Into the work
and it would run itself. On inquiry, it
wa9 found that he knew nothing at all
about poultry culture. The writer ad?
vised him to go slow, as there is no
branch of farming that does not have
to be learned. It Is not for the bene?
fit of poultry science to have men rush
into poultry ruising in this way. They
must approach the business from its
proper standpoint to make a success
of it.?Farmers' Review.

by swine breeders, shall we not acquire
more hardiness, promgte prolificacy,
