The new high-school teacher thought
that she was making a decided hit
with the older boys because they gath
ered around her to talk at many of
the Intermissions. The principal, who
had noticed this, commended her on
her interest In the boys and then told'
the boys how they should appreciate
her for this same Interest.
"I guess you like to have her talk
football with you," he smiled.
"Oh, no," hastily corrected one of
them. "She doesn't know any football.

Tho bens should have access at all
times to n supply of grit or stones of a
size small enough to be swallowed
readily. Grit Is used by tho hens to
help In grinding In thtlr gizzards tho
hard grains which they eat. A supply

purpose of grit very well. Crushed oys

PECULIARITIES OF TURKEYS
Show the Least Intelligence of Any
Farm Fowl When Young and
the Most When Matured.
Some one said the turkey shows tlu
least Intelligence when small and tht
most intelligence after maturity ol
any fowl known. This Is true of all
the farm fowls. The goose a'nd duck
will often go some distance from tlw
poultry range, make a nest, deposit
their eggs, Bit and hatch, if undls
turbed, taking no notice as to whethet
being watched by human eyes or not
The turkey Is very cautious. She wll
lead one, if she finds she Is belnf
watched, away from the nest or when
she intends making it, often making
nest and sitting down cozlly, until liei
watcher decides, or is .deceived Into
thinking she is on the nest, but he
will havo to try it over again. Aftei
tho watcher has gone away, she leaves
her temporary nest for tho true one
deposits her egg and usually covers
it deeply with leaves or other trash.
WINTER SHELTER FOR GEESE
Fowls Are Very Hardy and Open
Sheds Are Satisfactory for
Cold Weather Season.
Geese do not need shelter except
during cold winter weather, when
open sheds mny be provided. Goslings
are not usually hatched until good
pasture is available, and need addi
tional feed only for n few weeks. The
range of pasture used either for gos
lings or for geeso should ho lnrgt
enough so that tho grass will remain
clean, or tho stock should be moved
frequently to fresh land. Coops, bar
rels, or some other dry shelter should
bo provided for tho young goslings.
Geeso are very hnrdy and free from
diseases and insect pests.
