POULTRY HOUSE PLAN
Bent Located on the Side of n Hill to Avoid Standing
Water During the Rainy Seasons
, - > - - 13 y John Sorhum.
This Is a poultry house which I
think will stand the test of all ell-
mates. I think It well adapted to the
cold climate of Alaska , or the hot ell-
mat o of Australia , as well aa all tem
perate regions , writes John Sorliam In
the Poultry Tribune.
It Is best to first select a iildo hill
on which to build , ho that the water
will not be standing around or under
the house during rainy seasons. I
have mine built on level ground , but
shall remodel It soon , digging away
about 12 inches of ground from un
der the hoiibe and icplaclng It with
coarse sand. I shall also dig a trench
around and close to It , two feet deep ,

The floor Is built two feet from the
ground and the hens arc fed In this
under story In winter. On this base
ment floor there should bo at least
six Inches of scratching material to
keep the fowls busy. This scratching
shed under the building Is closed up

styond post from the gate and secured
at the bottom of the third post. The
gate frame shown at II , C and I ? should
be made out of 3x3 well put together.
Stretch the fence wire across the
gate , and cut after stapling firmly to
the triune of the gato. Of course , this
plan can bo varied to any slzo of
length to suit the builder.
Spraying Fruit Trees.
Don't spray only the trees from
whk-h you expect to get marketable
fruit. Spray all the trees , otherwise
the trees you go to the trouble to
spray early in the season may become
infected later by the unsprayed trees.

1 have two windows In every pen
( above the floor , of course ) , anil when
but ono pen is built , t also have two
windows ( ono on each side ) , on the
sides. The windows should all be
hinged at the top , so as to admit fresh
air all over the house when needed ,
and there should also be a shutter for
every window , to bo shut on winter
nlghls. These shutters should be
made of tongued and grooved lum
ber and hinged with loose pin steel
butts BO they may bo taken off In
warm weather and put out of the
way. I always like to have plenty of
light and sunshine in the cold win
ter days , but you know the moro windows
dews In the poultry house the colder
It Is at night , thus you see here is
where your shutters come handy. .
There Is also another point In this
house which should not bo overlooked ,
that Is , the covered roosts. A hinged
hood projects over the roosts which
keeps the fowls' combs from freez
ing In severe cold weather. This hood
is fastened with loose pin hinges Mko
the shutters and may bo taken off In
the spring. The hoods are also sup
plied with hooks and may bo hooked
up in day time If desired. The roosts
( C ) are above the nests , between
which there Is a largo dropping board ,
which also makes a covered passage
way ( D ) for hens to enter the nests.
This passageway Is open at both ends.
You will notice that in my plan 1
have only one entrance , this Is in the
middle pen , while the other pens have
a small door for the hens to pass In
and out. If you like you may have a
door Into each pen from single door
at the end of the building.
Corn and Pork.
The farmer who has a number of
spring pigs ready for the fattening
pens should devote a little time to the
study of feeds and tholr Influence on
the quality of meat produced. When
It Is desired to produce pork , or rather
fat , one kind of feed is necessary.
When the desire is to have lard hogs
for the market , no other kind of feed
should be used.
Corn Is pre-eminently a fat-forming
feed , and when the feeder wishes to
produce an animal with a great deal
of fat to supply the lard trade noth
ing is bettor than corn. When the do-
she Is to produce animals for meat
alone nothing can bo a poorer feed
The Influence of corn on the per
centage of fat should bo borne In
mind and the ration mixed to accom
plish the best results.
Were you dissatisfied with the size
of your currants ? Let ua whisper a
secret. You can improve the fruit
greatly by heavy manuring. Now is
a good time to apply it. The wood IB
ripe and is going into Us long rest.
You may pile straw manure about the
bushes so heavily that the grass and
weeds , If any , will bo smothered , and
all the bettor for the currants. This
fruit needs mulching enough to keep
the surface cool.
Need of Cream Separators.
With average cows and using the
cream separator It is estimated that
from $50 to $75 per year can bo saved
In butterfat with ten cows. Tula
amount will about pay for a good
cream separator , and its usefulness
will last for many years , making the
buying of ono a good Investment. He-
ing able to sell the cream without
hauling the milk to the creamery also
saves much time and labor.
Value of Potato.
On account of the starch they con
tain , potatoes are valuable as food.
The potato tuber consists mainly of
a mass of cells filled with starch and
encircled by a thin , corky rind. As
stated , the chief value of the potato
as an article of diet consists in the
starch It contains , and to a less ex
tent In the potash and other salts.

In the Biblical World.
Chicago. The divinity school of the
University of Chicago gave the world
another startling bit of advanced theology
elegy when the 13 editors of the lllbll-
cal World put their O. K. on the state
ment that the Ulblo Is not a compen-
dlutn of ethics and never was Intend
ed to bo.
The argument appeared In the form
of an editorial In the magazine , of
which Prof. Ernest DeWltt Hurton , D.
D. , head of the department of New
Testament literature and interpreta
tion , is the editor-in-chief. "The asso
ciate editors are members of the fac
ulty , and their unanimous approval Is
necessary before an editorial goes to
the printer. Often two or three col
laborate on an article.
The editorial makes the argument
that the ethical methods of Jesus were

justed to lit conditions as they were
In an Interview Dr. Hurton elaborat
ed on the presentments made in the
editorial In a manner to emphasize
what many persons had read between
the lines , viz. , that Sunday baseball
and other personal enjoyment of the
Sabbath were not necessarily sinful ,
In the minds of the 13 professors. Dr.
Burton did not mention baseball In his
discourse nor did ho mention saloons ,
but he left room for some very plain
Inferences. As did the editorial , ho
held that the Bible was not an Iron
clad depository of truth and arbl-

record. And no less an authority than
Jesus himself was cited in support of
"The Blblo Is not a compendium of
truth , nor oven of theology , " said Dr.
Burton. "It Is a record of religious
and ethical experiences rather than
the last authority and a composition
of all theological truth , such as It Is
held to be by most churches.
"Taking the Bible at the beginning
and following It through , wo find it
ever-changing , according to the con
ception of the times. We cannot take
It as a compendium and opening .It
say : 'There Is the law ; there Is the
truth. ' "
Parts of the editorial read as fol
"What shall we say concerning the
commands of Jehovah In the Old Tes
tament to exterminate the women and
children of a vanquished lee ? How
shall we account for the fact that the
Old Testament heroes Indulged In
polygamy , forbidden by our modern
laws ? How can wo teach tttal ah
stlnence from a Blblo which repre
sents Jesus as partaking of wine at
feasts , and which even tells how ho
miraculously produced wine from wa
ter on ono occasion when the supply
fell short ? "
"How , for example , can a Christian
gain in Intelligent understanding of
the Issues at stake In the modern con
flict between capital and labor if ho
simply confine himself to a riftdlns
of the Blblo ? How shall he gain de
fensible moral convictions concerning
the ethics of child labor If he confine
his attention to a literature which
never dreamed of the possibility of
modern factories and machinery ?
"When one turns to the Gospels
one cannot fall to bo Impressed with
the way In which Jesus taught moral
ity directly from life rather than by
the methods of the scribes. Ho de
termined what was right in any in
stance by examining the situation it
self. When sickness needed to be
healed the interests of suffering hu
manity wore of moro Importance to
him' than the Jewish legislation concerning -
corning the Sabbath.
"Is it not time that wo should cease
to apologize for this method of Bibli
cal study which has been universally
adopted In our seminaries ? "

great. There are some fellows who
will try to do their business tricks

Never Opened His Mouth.
"Not Infrequent rays of unconscious
humor illumine the otherwise impos
sible stories that come to my desk
from amateurs , " says a reader for ono
of the magazines. Recently I chanced
upon this choice bit :
" 'John , the husband , and Grace , the
wife , ate on together in silence. There
was indubitably an 111 feeling between
them. The husband devoured a plate
of soup , half a fish , an entree or two
a piece of roast beef , together with
a sweet , without ever once opening
his mouth. ' "
Canon Ilcnsley llenson , at a dinner
in New Haven during his Yale lec

English archbishop's attire.
"One of our archbishops , " he said ,
"preached in a Kansas church in his
panoply of knee breeches , gaiters and
apron , and the leading paper of the
town concluded an admirable report of
his fiermon with the words :
" 'The archbishop wore Highland
dress. ' "
