5OVERNOR GILLETTE OF CALI
FORNIA ISSUES ORDERS.
TO GET RESTRAINING ORDER
State Executive Instructs Attorney
General to Get Busy Referee
Rlckard Says Fight May
Be Held Elsewhere.
San Francisco. Stirred to action by
Insistent protests from all parts of the
state , Governor James Gillette took
steps to prevent the championship
light between James J. Jeffries nnd
Jack Johnson , scheduled to bo held
In this city July 4.
In a letter to Attorney General U. S.
Webb , the governor expressed his dis
approval of prize lighting in unmeas
ured terms , directs that the aid of the
courts bo invoked to prevent tie
match , and concludes with u positive
that in case the plea for a retraining -
training order Is not granted , and
viio light is held , the attorney general
shall proceed to gather evidence and
prosecute the principals and thee In
terested In the light for violation of
the penal code of the state.
The letter declares the supreme
court of California has never defined
a prize fight , and suggests an oppor
tunity be given to do so.
Governor Gillette telegraphed to At
torney General Webb to take similar
action in the fight between Al Kauf
man and Sam Langford which Is
scheduled to take place Saturday ,
Reno , Nov. Heno made the first
bid for the light as soon as the Asso
ciated Press bulletins announced the
action taken by Governor Gillette-and

gram signed by A. J. Aylesworth ,
manager of a local theater and repre
senting prominent business men , stat
ing that this city would erect a suit
able arena and furnish the $1,000
bonds required by the state law if the
promoters will bring the contest here.

Poultry IB ono of the best-paying
things on the farm when properly
cared for and brings In something
every month of the year.
If one wants to breed from 20 to a&
liens , two males should be used on al
ternate days. While ono Is running
with the hens the other should bo
cooped nnd fed extra.
Ono of the most difficult things for
a beginner in poultry raising to learn
Is to cull closely , and there arc others
besides the beginners that need to
practise this jiecessary thing.

TRAP NESTS ARE VALUABLE
Permit Poultryman to Keep Record
of Each Hen and Weed Out Poor
Ones How Used.
I presume every one knows what
trap nests are by thla time , and so
will merely say that they arc nests in
which the hen that lays the egg is
confined until a record Is made of her
achievement , when the trap is again
set for another hen. I know of just
two kinds of trap nests , ono that
closes as soon as the hen goes in and
the other that is closed only after the
egg has been laid. In the former kind
the hen Is shut In whether she lays
or not , and as hens are often curious
they may be caught In this way and
confined unnecessarily , writes W. 11.

Warner In Orange Judd Fanner. In
the other kind the hen may go in and
out at pleasure , but cannot bo con
fined until after the egg has been laid ,
since tlio egg itself Is used for closing
the trap ' \
A trap nest is to the practical poul-
tryman what the Dabcock test Is to
the dairyman. It gives each hen's
record of egg laying. Thus the poor
layers may bo picked out and the good
ones favored. It Is better for the
poultryman to get rid of these hens
and their progeny as early as possible ,
especially where poultry are kept for
eggs , and it is easier to build up n
laying strain of fowl than a good
milking strain of dairy cattle.
A handy trap nest Is shown Ju the
accompanying picture. It is so simple
that any ono can make It. It is , in fact ,
merely an ordinary nest with a cir
cular or square opening In front. The
door , as shown , is of very light stuff ,
pivoted at the top. When the nest is
set , a wlro runs across the opening
and rests against a piece of tin pro
jecting from the opposite hole. When
the hen enters , she lifts the loose end
which permits the door to drop be
hind her. After she has laid , she Is
removed and the trap set for the next

The HrRt tiling to consider \vhon se

sire tlii'iii for.
There are some breeds of poultry

being what poultrymcn call tbo Medi

UOIIIB , MlnorcnH , lamburgs and oth

tive enough to be good rustlers after
True Type of Barred Rocks.
grasshoppers and worms , bo good set
ters and mothers , easily tamed and
handled and a breed that will bear
con fin cm cut well.
There are many excellent breeds of
this class found among what are
known as the American breeds. The
Plymouth Rocks , Rhode Island Reds ,
the Wyandottes , and other breeds belong -
long to this class.
The Hrahmas , Cochins , Langshangs
and others of the large breeds of
Asiatic class nro not as good layers ns
the smaller breeds , they are more In
clined to be broody and as n rule are
not as good rustlers as the American
breeds and for that reason I would
not ndvisc one to select one's founda
tion stock from that kind of breeding.
When we look the Held all over
there is no breed that stands preeminently
nently at the head of the utility
class like the Plymouth Rocks nnd I
do not believe that a person would go
wrong if ho selected stock from some
good flock of that breed.
The Plymouth Rocks lay good-sized
eggs that are of a nice shape and
color. Of the various breeds of Rocks
I would choose the White Rocks , as
it is easier to breed them true to
color , they dress very clean and white
when killed for market.
The Duff Rocks and the Warred
Rocks are excellent fowls and are ful
ly as good In many respects as the
White Rocks , but one will llnd It much
easier to breed birds of a solid color
and keep them true to typo and mark
ings than to breed the colored breeds.
For a chicken that will grow fast
and mature early I know of no breed
superior to the White Rocks. They
have a plump body and are attractive
in the market and when full grown
have the weight that makes them
bring home the money that it cost to
The cockerels that are to be sold In
the fall make quite an Important Item
for us to consider and the White
Rocks cannot bo excelled in this point.
When the hens are too old to keep
for egg producing purposes it Is quite
an important item to have them weigh
six to eight pounds.
There is an increasing demand for
dressed fowls and if you have egg cus
tomers you should be able to make ar
rangements to supply them with
dressed poultry whonovcr ordered and
get the lop price for your .surplus
Charcoal for Chicks.
Charcoal may bo obtained from any
dealer in poultry supplies at a cost
of about one dollar per 100 pounds.
If the reader does not understand how
to burn wood for charcoal , It Is per
haps cheaper to buy the prepared ar
ticle. Wood may be easily converted
into charcoal by getting a quantity of
it to burning In a pit , then cover the
top of the pit with an iron covering
and leave it to smolder till the flre
dies out. Pulverize the charcoal till
it becomes powder and mix It with the
Dry Picking Chickens.
Most markets require that picking
be done dry. Any one can become an
expert in this manner of picking with
a little study and experience. As soon
as the bird has been killed and while
It Is still bleeding , the feathers should
be removed , care being taken not to
tear the skin. The picker should not
wait till the bird has bled , because
it will become cold then and the feath
ers will not bo removed so easily.
Killing is generally done by sticking
the knife In the roof of the mouth.

A good breeding goose two years
old or older with good care will lay
from 35 to GO eggs in a season. Breed
ing geese should not bo too fat , as
the eggs from fat geese never hatch.
In the summer , when they can get
plenty of grass , they do not need a
single kernel of grain and they will

LAND IN CANADA
WORK IT , AND SECURE 20 PER
CENT. ON THE EXPENDITURE.
Farm lands Jn Canada Increased In
value tlilH Spring from ilfteeu to twen
ty per cent , and an u result of this
Increase thousands of those who havn
gone there within the past few years
have had that much uioro value added
to their holdings. Thcro la proof hero
that ns n Held for investment there
Is nowhere to bo found n uioro profitable -
able ono than in purchasing farm
lands in Canada. And , ns n field for
occupation and working the farms
there Is uowboro on the continent
where moro sntialactory return Is
given. The crops are always sure and
the prices nro nlwayH good. With
railroads entering and traversing all
the settled pa ta , there nro' very few
districts In which the farmer will bo
more than from ten to twelve lullca
from a railway station. Roads are
good , nnd big loads nro easily handled.
The price of getting grain to the pri
mary market IB low on tula account ,
and then in reaching the world's mar
kets the railways have their rates con
trolled by the Government , and what
may be considered a fair deal Is cer
tain. Good prices for nil kinds of
grain is the rule , nnd If the Investor
has made good money by the Increased
value given to Ills unworkcd land , H
Is not diiricult to understand that the
profit to the man who works his land
Is just that much more , and there
will be no depreciation. The man
who holds a Ireo homestead of ono
hundred and sixty acres of land ,
which he got for $10 as an entry fee ,
has land which at Its lowest estimate
Is worth $10 nu acre yes , $1C au acre
the moment ho has completed his
three years' residence duties. It will
continue to Increase In value until Its
earning power gives n , reasonable In
terest on a certain sum. That \B \ , If
he takes off the land fifteen to twenty
dollars per aero clear profit each year ,
his land Is worth to him , nt a fair rate
of interest , $200 nn acre. If ho only
realizes $10 an ocro clear profit , It Is
worth $100 per acre. Now , thou
sands of farmers tire dupllcnting these
figures. The price of land In Canada
to-day is much less than Its realizing
value. The fact that the fifty thou
sand Americans who went to Canada
year before last were followed by ono
hundred thousand last year offers
some evidence , nnd good evidence , too ,
that there la getting to be n pretty fair
knowledge that money Is to bo made In
Canada lands. AH an Investment money
Is to be made , but more by living
upon the land , secured either by home
stead or purchase. The ono hundred
thousand of last year will bo one hun
dred and fifty thousand this year.
These comprise- people from every
state In the Unlonr.nnd It Is Just being
realized the asset that awaits the
homeseeker in Canada. The largo
numbers that have gone , though ,
makes no appreciable difference In
the supply of land. There Is still left
vast quantities ol the best of it. But
the longer a delay Is made Jn anlvlng
at a decision , the prlco will advance
proportionately , nnd the moro de
sirable homesteads near the railway
lines become moro difficult < o secure.
