Jeddy 'Cause yor kin got closer to do rabbit Avoid the Cheap and "Big Can" Da- king Powdero , The cheap baking powders have but one recommendation : they certainly civo the purchaser plenty of powder for his mon ey but it's not all baking powder ; the bulk ( i made up of cheap materials that have no leavening power. These powdcra nre so carelessly made from inferior materials that they will not make light , wholesome food , further , these cheap baking now- den have . very imall percentage of leav ening gas ; therefore it takes from two to three times as much of such powder to taise the cake or biscuit ns it does of Calti- tnet Baking Powder. Therefore , in th6 long run. the actual cost to the consumer of the cheap powders is more than Calu- rnet would be. Cheap baking powders leave the bread sometimes bleached and Held , sometimca yellow and alkaline , and mlways unpalatable. They are never of uniform strength and qmlity.

Gather the eggs several times a day. Clean out the nest boxes and burn the old straw. The heavy laying hen usually laya n. normal , mc'llum sized egg. Start right by getting better hens ; end right by keeping them bettor. Cull the surplus poultry. Keep only such fowls as you tire assured nro money-makers. Do not try to start n now breed. There are plenty now , and you would bo sure to get nothing but scrubs for your pains. Lime is a great cleanser. Hens must have lime or they cannot manufacture luggshells. Lime Is very useful about the poultry premises. If your Hock of hens does not pro- ( hiao a god average of fcrtilo eggs , better Introduce now blood. Secure jsomo healthy males from another Illoclc. Ono necessity for the turkey raiser .011 the avcrngo farm is n trco for iroostlng purposes. A turkey does netlike like a house , but much prefers an open place to roost. Many wno keep the poultry houses clean overcrowd their chickens and then wonder why they lese their ifowls. Let the chickens have plenty or rooms and fresh air. Keep your chicks tamo. It Is a nui sance to have to use u shotgun to catch ti chicken. Insubator chicks have this advantage , they nro accus tomed to being handled and are never rendered unmanageable through fright.

POULTRY THRIVE ON ALFALFA Experiment Demonstrates That It Is Excellent as Green Feed for the Growing Chickens. ( DT MUS. U rtOBEKTSON. ) I have demonstrated to my satis faction during the past year , that nl- "alfn excels clover both as a green food for growing chicks , and a winter relish for adult fowls. Wo have a field of ten acres sown to alfalfa stretching Just below the colony coops nnd pens where I raise my chicks. A year ago last summer I noticed that as soon as I gave the chicks free range they would seek this field nnd spend hours in the growing alfalfa , particularly when it blossomed ready for cutting. Dy close observation I found that they ate the tender tops and purple buds ravenously and certainly seemed to thrive on the food. I tried sowing some seed In my nursery pen , and it was wonderful to see how the chicks enjoyed It wee , fluffy fellows just from the incubator. This sot mo to thinking. When last winter came on I housed 100 pure Buff Cochin pullets In a fair ly roomy nnd comfortable house. The large hay barn was stored to thereof roof with alfalfa nnd millet hay. Prom the former the leaves and dried blos soms , still green In hue. fell In masses of fine fragrant litter , useless to the cattle and horses which only ate the bulkier stems. All winter long I used this alfalfa chaff for litter in my houses , bedding the floor deep every day. The hena scratched In It for their grain nnd ate every available bit they could pick up. Dy night the floor would bo bnro and n fresh supply was thrown In ready for the morning meal. My hens have always done well as winter layers , but last season they outdid themselves and made a record which Is the wonder and envy of all my neighbors. 1 give the credit to alfalfa , especial ly ns some close neighbors with warm er houses ono of them heated who bought patent egg-making foods , pro tein and blood meal In largo quanti ties and who have bone mills and fed green bone all winter , with oyster shells , mica grit nnd cut clover got next to no eggs at all. In fact , the one who has the heat ed chicken house , did not average three eggs a week and the other bare ly got enough for family use. Ono has a fiock of 500 Brown Leghorns and the other 250 pure Barred Rocks In past winters eggs from my old hens have been few and far between. It was the pullets that laid the eggs , but not only did the hens lay last winter but want to set Just as If It was summer weather. I broke up ns many as n dozen broody hcnp last January. In the face of facts like those I naturally glvo the credit to alfalfa. J This was the sole addition to their I feed and the only grain they had was i com and an occasional feed of boiled j outs for wo did not BOW wheat last I year.

The Tenderfoot Farmer Itvas one of these experimental farmers , who put green spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. His theory rras that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as the rras fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had not entered into his calculations. It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try tuch nn experiment with a cow. But many a farmer feeds him * self regardless of digestion and nutrition. He might almost as well eat shav ings for nil the good ho gets out of his food. The result is that the stomach grows "weak" the action of the organs of digestion and nutrition are impaired and the man Buffers the miseries of dyspepsia and the agonies o ( nervousness. To strengthen the stomach , restore the activity of the or * tfans of digestion and nutrition and brace up the nerrcs , use Dr. P/ercc'a Golden Medical Discovery.
