320 ACRE FREE HOMESTEAD
Wyoming;, Colorado and Montana: The Mondell Homestead
law makes provisions for 320 acre homesteads in certain localities,
instead of the usual 160 acre tracts. The requirements of the law
are practically the same regarding residence, improvements and
cultivation. These lands are going fast; if you want a homestead
close to the railroad, you should act now.

Ithqs been found by repeated exper

cubntor do riot produce chicks with ns
much vitality as those hatched under
hens. This is not very noticeable the
first season, but if continued year
after year will seriously impair the
vitality of the flock. It Is n general
practice among succersful poitltrymeu
to set a few ef the best eggs under
hens and use the chickens thus ob
tained to replenish the breeding flock.

The plan of having a breeding pen
from which to select eggs for hat"hlng
Is a very good one. In this 'pen a doz

flock are kept. If trap nest records

small house or compartment to them

and fresh eggs laid in with those al

should be provided with charcoal, grit
nnd oyster shells. A dust bath In
which the liens can roll will help to
keep them free from lice. Oats, wheat
and some sort of green food make n
good ration. When very expensive

metal piies. The hot air machine Is
simpler and generally gives better sat
isfaction The two nmst important points to
consider In buying an incubator are
the lamp nnd the regulator, since upon
the efficiency of these depends the
maintenance of a constant tempera
ture In the egg chandler. The lamp
and chimney should lie of heavy metal.
The reservoir should hold enough oil
for twenty eight to thirty hours' run.
The burner should be of brass, with a
cotton wlcl; which fits snugly and yet
works easily. It Is Important to use
the highest grade of oil that can be
obtained, a' 1 steady heat cannot be
maintained with cheap oil.
The fnnctlnii of the regulator Is to
raise or lower n valve over the lamp,
thus lessening or increasing the amount
of hot air that goes Into the machine.
Of nil the many kinds of regulators
none works more satisfactorily than
the double disk type. The disks should
be four or five Inches across, if
smaller they are not sensitive enough.
The regulator should be placed toward
the back part of the egg chamber and
high enough so that It will be well up
out of the way. Avoid incubators
that have the regulator lever on top of
the machine. Such a lever is always
In the way and Is liable to lie bent r
displaced. A machine that lias the
lever at the end or under a false top
Is niuch more satisfactory. There Is
notnlng In the way on top, and It can
be used as n table for testing, turn
lng and cooling eggs.
The liody ef the incubator should lie
made of well fitted hard wiod. with
three walls and two dead air spaces,
so as to be as little affected by the
outside temperature as possible. The

tached.. The doors should be of double
glass. The egg trays should slide
easily, nnd there should bo at least
three nnd a half Inches clearance be
tween the eggs and the fop of the
chamber. The nursery below the trays
should be at least four Inches deep.
This lower epace is needed for the
newly hatched chicks. This nursery
Is sometimes made to slide out like a
drawer. This Is n great convenience
in removing the chickens.
A small hole covered with a remova
ble slide will provide all the ventila
tion needed in addition to that obtain
ed when the doors are open for turn
ing tho eggs. A wet sponge kept un
der the egg trays will usually furnls'i
sufficient; moisture. The amount of
tnoisturo.needed can be determined by
the size of the air cell in the big end
of the egg. If this gets to be more
than one-fifth the size of the egg more
moisture should be supplied.
Handling ths Incubator.
There Is no better place for the In
cubator thau a clean, dry cellar. It
should be' run empty for at least n
day before the eggs are put In. so ns
to get the flame and regulator adjust
ed. The flame should be clean and
bright and the regulator set so ns to
maintain a constant temperature of
It takes a day or two to get the eggs
warmed np after they are put In. H.v
the third day the thermometer should
be up to HKl nnd should be kept there
tho rest of the time. The eggs should
be tested (he third day and infected or
dead ones taken out. The eggs should
be turned every morning until the
nineteenth day. This can be done by
rolling them over with the hand or
placing another tray over them and
turning them completely over. After
turning tliey should be left out ten or
fifteen minutes to cool. After the nine-
