Satin and Fur for Winter Wraps

Beauty may go beautifully lu any
thing Hindu of silk or anything nuule
of fur, with n clear conscience nnd
without criticism for these lire things
the soldiers don't need. So there nro
magnificent fur wraps nnd loss splen
did hut quite us beuutlful ones mndo
of satins and silks for those who
chooso to wenr them. There Is plenty
of latitude in this mntter of wur-tlme
dressing to allow those who can af
ford It, to go ns brilliantly clad, when
occasion makes opportunity, us In tho
past, or to dress as simply ns for n
promenade. There aro several minds
nu to what befits tho times.
Since fur and silk nro ut hnnd noth
ing more Is nsked by the crentors of

Keen and practical observers of the
styles sny that they embody the spirit
of youth nnd that this Is one effect of
the war. The great armies are mndo

young man, and it is rotlected In nil
apparel. One might think that for
mntrons, this flavor would bo nbsent,
but no I Matrons nro as busy as maids
nnd soldiers, ns alert and active, nnd
their npparel expresses this, which Is
the spirit of youth.
In tho hiindsoine silver-tone coat pic
tured something of this Idea Is appar
ent. It seems to be simple, but Is
really designed with wonderful nnd
sophisticated cleverness, therefore It
may bo selected its representative
among garments for women no longer
youthful. It Is a benutlful model suit
ed to all-round yenr. with Raglan
sleeves, that give It an ample roomy
look nnd cleverly shuped under-nrm
pieces that keep It from being bulky.
Only an expert could think out and
execute a thing so now In Ihe world

QUALITY IS OF IMPORTANCE
American Standard Breed Are Good
Producers of Meat and Eggs
Farm Hens Are Small.
(From tho United States Department of
Agriculture)
Inasmuch as most farms have al
ready some supply of poultry, tho
problem for tho farmer Is one of In
crease nnd uot, like that of the city
dweller who undertakes to keep hens
to supply Ida own table with eggs, one
of securing tho foundation stock.
While tho American standard breeds
nre, fur general purposes, the best, It
Is not urged thnt they bo made to
supplant other breeds where the oth
er breeds aro established and whore
they can be produced with n fnlr do
greo of success nnd of profit. Tho
American standard breeds, brondly
speaking, nro tho larger breeds of
general-purpose fowl, good producers
of both meat nnd eggs, as distinguished
from tho smnll breeds thnt nro spe
cialized egg producers. Farmers and
farmers' wives who hnvo built up their
own flocks, nnd know the peculiari
ties of their breed nnd how to make
the most of them will do best by
keeping the hens thnt they have, oven
though they bo smnll nnd Inferior ns
meat producers, Instead of trying to
replace them with heavier ones.

thnt tho chick has when It sturts In
life count for at leust us much ns good
conditions nnd good care.
Also, In growing stock for layers, It
Is especially Important at this tlmu
when a large Increase In meat prod
ucts Is needed, to avoid breeding from
undersized specimens. Whntover may
be the facts ns to tho relative value of
largo and smnll hens us layers, us thnt
question relates to standard brced3,
tho question Is Irrelevant in this farm
poultry production campnlgu, for farm
hens nro nearly nil small according to
standards for Improved breeds of
fowls.
Tho ordinary farm flock contains n
lnrgo proportion of hens qulto unfit
for breeding having no quality which
It Is desirable to reproduce. Tho eggs
from theso should not bo used for
hatching, but, us far us possible, egga
used for hatching should bu from the
best hens lu tho flock. To determine
how many of theso nro needed, nn es
timate must bo made, basing it upon
the usual htitchubllity of eggs, nnd the
probable length of tho hutching sea
son. Tho ordlnnry avorugo of hutches
extending over u period of Hcvcral
months Is nbout 70 per cent. If ull
the chicks urn hatched curly the
length of Uio hatching season In about
six weeks, from the setting of tho first
to the setting of the last hen used.
Allowing two weeks for saving eggs
before tho first hens nro set, tho egijti
used for hatching must be laid witniti
eight weeks. Allowing for rejections
of small nnd defective eggs, provision
should be mnde for nbout COO eggs In
eight weeks. This means u, flock of
35 to 20 hens uu breeders. Such a
number of tho best of tho flock should
bo separated from the rest.
As a mutter of convenience It will
probably be more satisfactory In most
cases to confine the culls and glvo tho
portion of tho farm flock used for
breeders tho usual accommodations
and rnnge. Tho culls may bo shut In
Hmall quarters without yard If ncccs
try, while thnt Is not ndvlsablo for
breeding stock.
Tho next thing to consider is tho
male. In many cases It will bo to the
ndvantago of fanners undertaking to
Increase nnd Improve their flocks to
buy standard males of general-purpose
breeds bocuuso of tho additional slzo
und weight such mules will glvo the
chicks, to say nothing of Uie probable
Increase in egg production. From one
or two pounds extrn weight enn be
put on tho chjeks from ordlnnry farm
hens by using males of approximately
standard weight of Rhode Island Reds
and Wyandctes, Plymouth Rocks nnd
Orpingtons.
