BUILDING UP POULTRY FARM
Necessary to Make Right Kind of
Start and Work Must Be Faith
fully Performed Every Day.
Uly MICIIAKIj K. BOYISH.)
A poultry farm built upon a secure
foundation is sure to bo successful if
It is nftorward properly managed. It
Is not only necessary to make the right
kind of a start, but tho work must bo
regularly and faithfully performed day
In and day out.
As a rule beginners start with grcnt
enthusiasm, and not n fow build air
castles, but to many of them tho samo
ncss of tho work, tho closo applica
tion, tho constant watching, soon bo
como monotonous, and then thero is
a shirking of duty, neglect, careless
ness, and tho ontorprlso becomes a fall

In the parlance of today, "a man
must bo on to his job." Ho must know
what to do and how best to do it. lie
must be. awaro that inexperience may
causo leaks, and leaks will soon .sink
It is a noteworthy fact that most
juccessful ioultry farms of today arc
those that havo started from a small
beginning and gradually expanded as
business and experience warranted.
Men "who would not go into the dry
goods business for tho reason that they
know nothing about it, will build
oousos and stock them and expect the
hens to do tho rest.
Hens, like cows, yield a profit nc
:ordlng to tho treatment given them.
They will not stand neglect. They are
hard workers when properly managed
and rewarded, but they can be the
most idle and Indifferent producers
when made to shift for themselves.

Eggs and poultry are staple crops
and tho demand Is far greater than
tho supply. This country needs more

BROODER FOR LITTLE CHICKS
Homemade Affair Can Be Put To
gether Cheaply by Use of Well
Seasoned Light Lumber.
(By A. C SHKLDON, Ohio.)
Tho broodor is made of well-seasoned
light lumber, and the top Is 40
Inches long, .12 Inches wide; with the
other dimensions given Jn the illus
tration. Tho little opening In front should
havo a llttlo side door. Tho little box
on tho corner of the brooder as shown
Is for tho lamp or lantern to 00 placed
in to hent tho brooder. It should be
lined with tin or asbestos. There Is a
glass opening In tho top, 12 by 24.
This makes a lino brooder for
Bprlng, summer and fall, and gives
excellent satisfaction. Its capacity
is 220 chicks, and it can bo made at
a very small coBt.
