The failure to make arrangements for
the escape of vitiated air and the intro
duction c.f pure air in poultry l.-mses is
the prolific source of two-thirds the ail
menis that attack domestic fowls, damp,
cold quarters accounting for the remain
der. The tlropFings o! domestic fowls
soon give off noxious gases, which, if con-fine-l
so that the fowls inhale the polluted
air, prevents thrift and occasions serious
A way often adopted is to make a few
holes in one end of the house and let the
air get in and out the best way it can.
Occasionally a very slovealy manager will
icave a board or two off for th8 purpose;
or, with malice- aforethought, build a
lionse with the boards left a little apart
for ventilation. These method, width In
duce draugbtH, nro worse than no venti
lation at all, ulmoyt, because dningTItH of
cold air invito colds, and colds quickly
run into that most dreaded of all diseases,
I he roup.
The plan illustrated iu the cut is a very
simple one and costs almost nothing be
yond the labor of carrying it out. It is
equally suitable to a single slope or to a
g.ibje roof. The latter way is desirable,
but readers can eaaily adapt it to the
In the roof of the house form a small
chamber by nailing half inch boards across
the Mine, about midway lutwcen the
caves and the. apex. The cross boards
forming the 1h( torn of the chamber may
cither be closely nailed together and have
holes bored in them, or be left a quarter
of an inch apart. At each end of this
chamber, in t he gables, flat cross bars, or
' louver boards." as these are termed,
should In- so placed as to exclude the rain;
.; a cut ilal ii g t rap, such as is for sale
at hardware Mores, may be put. in. J Ivies
bt.rid in both ends will do, but not so
The system of vent ilat ion described en
sures a coir t;iiit current of air through
the ventfiat ing chamber, carrying oil the
. itiated air, andf his prevents any draught
whatever in the house itself; but. at the
same time, fresh air is in it day and night
for the fowls to breathe. In winter some
of the ventilating holes can be stopped up,
for fewer are required than during the
hot summer months. The facility with
which the current can be regulated is the
advantage t he t r.ip ventilators have over
the holes or lower boards, though the
hitter serve well and are at the command
li'-aders arc cautioned against making
holes near the ground or doing anything
to create a draught upward, as when this
is done t here is danger of the fowls hav
ing to roo.il mid way between two openings
a plan which, sooner or later, results in
liiscasc:-; induced by colds.
The (lecrof t he hone ought to be higher
than the ground outside to prevent the.
water running into the house, which it
will do if below or upon the level. A dirt
lioor is an oxeeHciit one when the soil is
well drained so as lo insure freedom from
dampness. Cement wh.:i well laid makes
a good lloor. An c:.:-e!lent plan is to
spade up the ground and rake it over line
and ev n, then overlay it with ashes, a
little tine gravel, etc. This top layer ought
to be removed every few days and a fresh
a pulley or r.indlr
If buckets with a pulley or windlass
are used in deep, narrow wells, it is best,
says l'rairie Farmer, to have these loug
and of small diameter, so as to pass each
other easily and not upset by knocking
against the walls. The kind shown in the
cut at A is common in some parts of the
country but unknown in others. It was
recently illustrated and described cs .fol
lows in the joitrnal quoted from.
LONG, SKLF EMPTYING BUCKET.
It is made of heavy tinned or galvan
ized sheet iron with a wooden bottom 1 1-3
Dr L inches thick, having a hole through
its center 2 inches in diameter. Over this
hole, inside of the bucket, is a valve like
those used in wooden pumps. To the top
is hinged or riveted a bail. In the trough
which is attached to the curb to conduct
tiie water to the pail, is a peg of wood or
iron 4 or 5 inches long. To empty the
bucket set it in the trough so this peg will

One Way to THaliO an Kg? Tester
A cheap and simple egg tester may bd
made of a pasteboard box and about naif
a vard of any light weight, dull bht.-k
cloth. The bcx should be seven inches
long by six inches wide and deep. Cut a
hole in each end of the box, one hole large
enough to lit over the largc-.-t part of a
common lamp chimney and the other to
that it will just fit over the top. Cut an
other hole one s'.ao about the shape and
a little smaller than thy average size of an
eg; I-::i3 the inside of iho box and the
cover with the cloth and fasten the cover
of the box on tightly, so that uo Sight can
reach the inside oii the box. Alo cover
the outside of the box, cutting out three
hoies iu the cloth, drawing the inner and
outer lining;; together around the edges of
the holes s that they will not come iu
contact with the lamp. Iight your lamp,
put the tester over the chimney, exclude
all light from the room .and you are ready.
Place the eggs against the hoh in the side
of the tester and you will find that it will
work to your complete satisfaction. .Care
should be taken to get the hole in the side
of the tester opposite the ilame of the
Limp, so as to. get the full strength of iho
Jight through the egg.
(.ol Effects of Iralna;e.
Expcilitrnts conducted at the Experi
ment station tit J.'niontown, Ala., accord
ing to a bulletin recently issued, show
that the average yield .o.ni on drained
land was 8'J.S-l Imshels to the acre. T.ho
Uverage yield without drainage was 24.0
bu:'l.,-I.s j.er acre. Drainage therefore

was neither jlVS.cp ssivt" rainfall nor drought
