Irln nil Shipping Poultry.
Price & Keith, commission mr
chants, sand us the following article
on dreaming and shipping poultry for
the Chicago market:
In the first place, poultry should be
kPt without food twenty-four hour;
full crop Injure the appearance and
re liable to sour, and when thin does
occur, correspondingly lower price
must be accepted than obtainable for
choice atock. Novor kill poultry by
wringing the neck.
To Drew Chicken. Kill by bleeding
In the mouth or opening tho veins of
the tieck; hung by tho feet until prop
erly bled, Isave head and feet on,
and do not remove Intestines nor crop.
Hcaldcd chicken sell bent to home
trade, and dry picked beat to shippers,
so that cither manner of dressing will
lo If properly executed, but an there
') but very few outride ordere re
ceived for chickens until after the first
of the year, we would advlHe shippers
to scald their thickens until after the
holidays. For scalding chickens, the
water should be as near boiling point
as possible-, without boiling; pick the
leg dry before scalding; hold by the
bend and legs and Immerse and lift
up and down three times; if the head
Is Immersed It turns the color of the
comb and gives the eyes a shrunken ap
pearance, which leads buyers to think
the fowl has been sick: the feathers
and pin feathers should then be re
moved very cleanly, and without
breaking the skin; then "plump," by
dipping ten seconds In water nearly or
, quite boiling hot, and then Immediate
ly Into cold water; hang In a cool
place until the animal heat Is entirely
out of the body, To dry pick chick
ens properly, the work should be done
while the chickens are bleeding; do
not wait and let tho bodies get cold.
Dry picking Is much more easily done
while the bodies are warm, lie care
ful and do not break and tear the skin.
To Dress Turkeys, Observe the same
instructions as given for picking
chickens, but always dry pick. Dressed
turkeys, when dry picked, always sell
best and command better prices than
scalded lots, as the appearance Is
brighter and more attractive, En
deavor to market all old and heavy
gobblers before January 1, as after the
holidays the demand is for small fat
hen turkeys only, old toms being sold
at a discount to canners.
Ducks and Oecse. should be scalded
in the same temparaturo of water as
for other kinds of poultry, but it re
quires more time for the water to pen
etrate and loosen the feathers, Borne
parties advise, after scalding, to wrap
them In a blanket for the purpose of
steaming, but they must riot be left in
this condition long enough to cook
the flesh. Do not undertake to dry
pick geese and ducks just before kill
ing, for the purpose of saving the
feathers, as it causes them to bocome
very much inflamed, and is a great in
jury to the sale. Do not pick the
feathers off the head; leave tho feath
ers on for two or three inches on the
neck. Do not singe the bodies for
the purpose of removing any down or
balr, as the heat from the flame will
give them an oily and unsightly ap
pearance. After they are picked clean
they should be held in scalding water
about ten seconds for the purpose of
plumping, and then rinsed off in clean
cold water. Fat heavy stock is al
Ilefore packing and shipping, poul
try should be thoroughly dry and cold,
but not frozen; the animal heat should
be entirely out of tho body; pack In
boxes or barrels; boxes holding 100 to
200 pounds are preferable, and pack
snugly; straighten out the body and
legs, so thut they will not arrlvo very
nniHlt bent and twisted out of shape;
fill the packages full as possible to
prevent moving about on the way;
barrels answer better for chickens and
ducks tliuu for turkeys or geeae; when
convenient, avoid putting more thHn
one kind la a packae; mark kind and
weight of each description on the
package and mark shipping directions
plainly on the rover. Farmers' lit-vli-w.

QUEEN VICTORIA IS RICH.
Own mod BuU 6o Horn and He
Largs Landed Katete.
The announcement that Queen Vic
toria Is to leave, by will, Osborne house
to one daughter and Balmoral, th
royal residence in the highlands, to th.
duke of Counaught, recalls the fact
that tho tunn who would devour this
particular widow's houses must make
an uncommonly full meal, says an ex
change, It was discovered a few weeks
since that the queen owned COO houses
in various parts of England, not royal
residences, but rent-yielding property
and that about 6,000 housis had been
built by crown lessees an building
leaseholds by the queen. She then had
also rent from markets and tolls from
ferries, besides the proceeds from mines
and other works upon her 'property
or the crown property, Bhe has large
estates In Yorkshire, Oxfordshire and
Perks, valuable lands in the lisle of
Man and Aldeniey, Scotland, Ireland
and Wales, Of the New Forest there
are 2,000 acres of absolute and sixty
three acres of contingent crown prop
erty, Her mnjnnfy enjoys income from
several other forents and from rich
properties In and about London.
Osborne, on tho Isle of Wight, and
Dalmoral, in the highlands, ere the
private property of tho queen and are
maintained out of her own Income, Hut
she tins the use of a few royal palaces
besides, and these are maintained by
the nation at an annual vxpcndituri
runglng from 2,r00 to $."0,ooj, Tho
queen Is in the occupancy of Bucking
ham palace, Windsor castlo, the white
lodge at Klchmoiid park and part of Ht
James' pitldce, Tho remainder of the
last-named pnlneo is occupied by other
member of the royal family, Other
royal paluccs maintain d as such,
though not in the occupancy of the
queen, are Kbnidngton palace, llamp
ion court, wnicn, according to a re
cent estimate based on the statistics
of eight or ten years, costs the nation
on the average of over $70,000 a year;
Kew palace, Pembroke lodge, the
thatched cottage and 8heen cottage,
Richmond park; Hushy house, in
Mushy park, and Jlolyrood palace,
NOT MULTIPLYING RAPIDLY,
111 Seminole Indian In Klnrlile Have
Sir lut Law Ahnat Merrleee.
Dr. J. K. Urecht, superintendent of
the Florida Indians, with headquarters
at Fort Myers, arrived in the city yes
terday from Tallahassee, his mission
there being to purchase lands with the
appropriation of $3,000 now annually
set apart by the general government
for the Hemlnoles, says the Florida
Times-Union. Heretofore the Senil
noles have been homeless, so far as
Ownership of land Is concerned. The
doctor has located and surveyod all of
their habitations and his endeavor now
Is to pursue the work of securing deeds
in the names of the individual owners,
"The Indians," says vr. Urecht, "are
not multiplying rapidly. This is due
to physiological and social reasons.
Rtlll there has been on increase, In
18&$ there were but 112. Now Uiere
are something over COO, Tho chief so
cial reason for their slow propagation
is the custom of countenancing no mar
riage of persons who have a drop of the
same blood In their veins. This is
sometimes hard on the girls. One
leader I know has two beautiful daugh
ters who cannot get mar'hd because
tlto eligible young men are almost all
akin to them. Very often the custom
causes strange alliances, and I know of
a numbe of Instances where young
bucks of 20 have squaws of CO,
"The reason for a lack of Increase is
the dearth of knowledge on the part of
men and women of physiology, sanita
tion and hygiene, Tho mothers, though
Intensely fond of their offspvlng, will
allow them to stuff themselves with
food and traHh In the shape of cand,
charcoal and clay. Many deaths oc
cur during the first three years, If a
child lives to be 5 you can't kill him
wit h a Unlit wood knot.
"If the parents knew more of diet, the
race would rapidly lncrrn, for a
stronger, sounder people ' not to be
found on the earth. Their women are
ther purest of the pure. A whole realm
cannot chimp thetu from the path of
virtue, lewdness Is an unknown sin."
