Experiments In Artificial Hatching?.
T IS only recently
that operators of
come to fully real
ize the great im
portance of proper
ventilation for in
cubators and hatch
ing rooms. The
following (Vol. VII.,
Xo. 10, Report
United States De
partment of Agriculture), taken from
the reports of the French minister of
agriculture, shows conclusively the ne
cessity of supplying vitalizing air to the
chick. The sensible hen cools and airs
her eggs, as must the successful incu
bator operator. "It was also found that
the eggs of fowls which were at liberty
hatched better than those of fowls
which were confined. In tests made
with an incubator it was found that
eggs which were repeatedly cooled and
warmed hatched much better than
those that were kept at a warm tem
perature all the time. In one experi
ment the eggs were cooled by exposing
Lhem to the air for one and one-half
hours daily during the whole period of
incubation. This treatment retarded
the period of incubation for three days.
The eggs became quite cold and it re
quired about twelve hours to bring
them up to 104 deg. P., the temperature
of incubation. In the experiment, thir
teen out of sixteen hatched vigorous
chickens. The incubator has been pre
viously used with unsatisfactory re
sults. From a second experiment it was
inferred that the gradual heat of the
eggs was as essential as the process of
cooling. Twenty-five eggs which had
been laid on very warm days v:ere
placed in an incubator and exposed to
the air, as in the preceding case. The
temperature was such that the eggs
were warmed up to 104 degrees in two
Dr three hours. This temperature was
maintained until the brood hatched.
The chickens pierced the shell, but they
were so weak that they died before
leaving the eggs. It was found that the
;ggs upon which a fowl is sitting are
not all of the same temperature, those
upon the outside being cooler than
those that lie inside."
Onions for Poult rr Food.
There is no vegetable that grows of
more value to the poultryman than the
onion, says American Poultry Journal.
Doubtless it was one of the foods of the
fowl in its natural state, as it is found
growing wild in several parts of the
world. In Illinois and Missouri we
have found it, both in the woods and
prairies, with sprouts short and crisp
early in the spring, that would lengthen
and toughen as the season advanced, to
bear a small seedling onion or "button"
late in the fall. We never tried plant
ing any of the "button" onions of the
wild variety, but doubtless if we had
they would have produced the same
class smaller in size perhaps ot
onions that the "sets" of the cultivated
sorts do to-day. Be that as it may, th
onion of commerce is a valuable addi
tion to the list of vegetables that are
considered good for fowls. At this sea
son of the year when the fowls are run
down by the heat of the autumn and
the strain of moulting, the onion will
be found a firet-class tonic. Where
there is bowel trouble, with greenish
droppings, and dysentery, onions cut up
i tolerably ne and fed aa often as three
times a week will prove of great bene
fit, and where the chickens have had
access to any unclean food and become
affected by it, such as decaying animal
matter, which leads to limberneck or
old-time chicken cholera, sometimes
the feeding of onions will be found ben
eficial; although when a chicken gets
good chance at such stuff, and gets a
big dose of it, it is about as good as
gone. Precaution should be taken to
have nothing of the kind on the prem
ises. Onions boiled in with the warn!
mash for the hens is good, and by in
vigorating and stimulating them causes
them to lay better. In fact onions as
a tonir and a food is one of the simple
provisions ot nature that any one can
keep handy at a small cost. Don't fail
to include them in your poultry bill of
fare two or three times a week, and
of tencr if the chickens appear debili
tated. American Demand for Hereford.
After a long calm, during which the
cxportatioii3 of Hereford cattle have
been few and far between, home breed
ers arr once more hopeful of a good de
mand from Canada and the United
States, says London Live Stock Jour
nal. Letters from people in authority
across the Atlantic state that the trade
for Kerefords there is undoubtedly re
viving, and that a number of buyers
contemplating coming over to England
in the spring to make selections per
sonally. Some of the most sanguine
home breeders think there is about to
be another American boom, only on
more reasonable lines than the last,
for extra sires on ranches where the
Hereford strain has made itself con
spicuously profitable, for the introduc
tion of Hereford bulls amongst cattle
where they have not been previously
tried, and for fresh blood in pedigree
herds. The demand is coming very op
portunely now that the depression in
agriculture is more severely felt, even
in fruitful Herefordshire. It is the jub
ilee of the Hereford Herd Book socie
ty, which has done so much towards
maintaining the purity and pedigree of
the Hereford breed. Next year is the
centenary of the Herefordshire Agri
cultural society, which was originated
for the express purpose of improving
the form of the Hereford, and an ex
tension of trade will also help the Here
ford Cattle Breeders' association,
which is so useful in holding com
petitions for the comparison of young
bulls, and in bringing to notice the
most promising animals. There is
quite a respectable consignment of
yocng pedigree Herefords now going
across the Atlantic, the genuine char
acter of the trade heing indicated by
the difference of purchasers, and the
variety of herds which have been, se

J vice," and will have to be replaced.
says Southern Cultivator. There is a
great deal of talk about the progress
of invention displacing the horse, but
no trolley or bicycle has yet been found
to displace the horse. Nothing of a
practical character has yet been dis
covered that will do the work of the
draft horse. It is a class of horses,
too. that has become notablv scarro in
j the country. There are very few of
i them coming on. With a revival of
' business, which is certain to come
! eventually, those city firms vrhich take
pride in having their vans, drays and
. other heavy vehicles drawn by fine,

the market for supplies. They find
that horses of this class not only do
the work well, but are a handsoma ad
vertiseraent of their business, fcdjr.ip
there much promise that they -will b
found In t!iG near future In the exist
Ing Btipply of colts. Farmers and live
stock growers are looking about to find
some line of work that Is not over
done. No one conversant with the sit
uation has any apprehension about the
draft horse business being overdone
now. The only thing that at present
prevents a genuine draft horse famine
is the general business depression that
exists throughout the country, wfeich
limits the demand. If the demand were
normal, the suppVy would be wholly
inadequate to it. The breeding of good
nraft horses wherever one has mares
suitable for the work, is, therefore, so
far as it is possible for anyone to peer
into the future, as good an opening ar
the live stock grower can find.
Contest In Michigan.
It is said that dealers in Detroit hart
determined to put up a fight against
the enforcement of the anti-color law
in the state of Michigan, says Elgin
Dairy Report It seems to us the hand
lers and dealers of this product are
either utterly lost to all question of
right and justice or are so satisfied
with their own wisdom in regard to the
interpretation of the law that they can
see months ahead what the decision of
the court will be, and therefore become
law breakers rather than law abiding
citizens. The dairy commissioner says
that the law will be enforced in the
state of Michigan, the manufacturers
and dealers in oleo to the contrary not
withstanding. The dairy commission
er will have the whole commonwealth
to support him, and we hope must
earnestly that he will succeed in con
vincing these violators that the law was
meant to be obeyed and not disobeyed.
The aairy commissioner ana authori
ties of that state have, of course, an
advantage over the parties who are en
deavoring to enforce the law in our
state of Illinois. There no appropria
tion was made nor officers designated
to enforce the law except in a general
way, and yet we believe the fight that
is being put up now in our state will
result in driving out of the state all
manufacture of oleo colored in imita
tion of butter.
The Milk Can.
At a convention in Minnesota, J. K.
Bennett said, among other things: "In
the care of cans, they are to be kept
clean and free from rust. They should
be washed as soon as possible after
being used. Rinse first with cold wa
ter, then scrub thoroughly with a
brush both inside and oUiside, using
warm water almost hot, or better, a
good soap suds, use it often anyhow.
Give particular attention to the seams
and don't forget the outsides. You
know the inside is often judged by the
outside. Finish with scalding water.
Turn your cans upside down long
enough to allow them to drain; then
leave them right side up, or on their
sides in the fresh air, and you will
have clean, sweet cans. It is a very
common error to leave them over a
stake, or on a board. This is a serious
mistake, as invariably the cans will
sour thereby. The hot air or steam .
rises and has no escape, consequently j
condenses in the cans and sours. Much I
milk otherwise well cared for is often 1
tainted from no other reason. A rusty ,
can should not be used, as it imparts
a foreign flavor to milk.
Milk, if the vessels or troughs con
taining it arc kept sweet and cleanly,
may with advantage be kept whero
fowls can get to it at any time. Other
kinds of food should be given at rcgu- ;
lar times and only in the quantities
that will be then consumed, says ah e.- '
change. It is simply wasteful to throw ,
out to them a large quantity of food in
order that they have it within reach
all through the day. Much of it will be
scattered about, lost, or so filthy that
your fowls ought not to eat it. Besides '
this, all poultry require a certain '
amount of exercise in order to be
healthy, and this exercise ihey will not '
take unless driven by appetite to hunt
for part of their food. And it is prob
able that needed qualities of food ob
tained by so hunting aid in the assimi
lation of the ordinary feed given to
them. The careless feeding of unneces
sary quantities at a time prevents liens
from laying as they would if not over
fed, and those intended for the table or
market, are fattened best by giving to
them only so much as they will ciean
up at each meal.
l'oor Clover Seed.
Crimson clover Is a "pernickitty"
kind of plant, with very well defined
notions of its own about where it will
or will not grow, says Western Farmer.
Sometimes when it seems to have every
facility it does not amount to anything.
Nothing but experiment shows, in
many cases, whether crimson clover
can be successfully grown. It should be
added, though, that the poor quality
of clover seed so often on the market
has also a great deal to do with the
poor clover observed in some locali
ties. Whether farmers are careless and
indifferent, or whether some of them
deliberately put on the market seed
that they know to be unreliable, is a
matter for individual decision; but cer
tain it is there is more clover seed
of poor quality than almost any other
staple on the market. The price com
manded for clover seed is always good,
and buyers are entitled to get what
they pay for.
Diseases of Ducks and Geese. The
most frequent difficulty with ducks and
geese is that of vertigo. They drop
down on their feet, or fall over to one
side suddenly, at times as rapidly re
covering, or dying immediately. Th's
happens only when ducks or geese are
fed on too much grain. The best sys
tem to adopt in summer is to put them
in a field where short grass is abundant,
or even young weeds, and let them get
the food for themselves. They require
but very little food in summer, as they
are then well over the laying period,
becoming non-producers. If this fact
is kept in view that of the non-producers
requiring but little food during
warn weather there would be a sav
ing in expenses as well as fewer losses
from disease, but it is difficult to con
vince those having good breeds that
there is such a thing as killing with
kindness feeding too much. Mirror

wheat is practically a biennial plant,

Tyrotoxicon or cheese poison. There
If no appearance In cream or cheese
containing this poison by which its
presence may even be suspected, but if
there is a decided acid reaction to blue
litmus paper, and in the case ot cheese
a slightly opalescent fluid exudes from
the freshly cut samples: eat with cau
tion until confident. Persons poisoned
by this ptomaine show the following
symptoms according Jo Dr. Vaughn'!

pulse feeble and irregular, countenance
pale, exceeding weakness and a strong
desire to sleep or even unconscious
ness. Any decomposable organic ma
terial which has been exposed to th2
atmospheric dust and germs for any
length of time may become infected.
Since all putrefaction is due to living
organisms, it follows that these ma
terials which furnish the best condU
tions for development will become in
fected and encourage the growth of
most dangerous results. According to
Dr. Vaughn, in his work en ptomaines
and leucomaines, food poison may orig
inate in any one of the following ways:
1. The food is infected and the poison
Is generated only and wholly before
the food is taken. 2. The infecting or
ganism may begin the elaboration of
its poisonous products outside and con
tinue the same process inside the body.
3. The infection may not result in the
production of poison until the food is
taken into the body. As to tho condi
tion under which this subtle poison and
the ptomaines which produce it are
encouraged, they are many and as va
ried as the different modes of living.
Heat, pure air, pure water and plenty of
sunshine are the main weapons to fight
these enemies of the human race.
Artificial heat, above 200 degrees F.
and the direct action of the sun's rays
are prejudicial to the life of poison
producing organisms when exposed to
their action. The careless and sloven
ly methods of handling milk or cream,
Improperly cleaned utensils, the stor
age in damp, foul or mouldy smelling
cellars or outhouses, the use of con
taminated well or running water, the
disgusting habit of throwing slopa and
waste water onto the ground near tho
house and close to the room used for
setting the cream, and in the case of
towns and cities, the unsanitary con
dition of houses from faulty connec
tions of the house wastes with the pub
lic sewers are among the many condi
tions which lead to the development
of this subtle poison in dairy products.

San Bonnets for Hort.cs.
Horses in London are wearing straw
hats this season. For some time the
English Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals has been agitating
the question of protecting the heads of
horses during hot weather. This agi
tation has finally had a good effect, and
nearly every horse that is compelled to
draw heavy loads through the London
streets is now protected from the sun's
rays by a bonnet. This plan has long
been followed .in France, and the h:it
adopted in England is the same as that
used in Bordeaux. It looks much like
the straw hats familiar to visitors to
American summer resorts and bathing
beaches. The brim is wide and there
are holes througli which the horses
ears project. It is held in place by be
ing tied to the bridle. Manufacturers
of straw goods arc dclighiod with tho
innovation, as they have bsen kept busy
all summer making the hats. They sell
for a trifle, but such tremendous num
bers arc used that the total cost is con
siderable. The mortality among horse3
liar- decreased greatly since the use of
the hats became common. As the hats
have high crowns, there is plenty of
room for ventilation. During extremely
hot weather in New York city the mor
tality among hores is very large.
Truckmen there have the custom of
lying wet sponges to the ears of their
horses, and it doubtless saves many
lives, but there is no doubt that they
would guard against loss even more if
they should adopt the humane practice
of Londoners, even though the animals
do look rather grotesque.
Flint Corn fir Turkeya.
Successful Rhode Island growers as
a rule feed their turkeys from start to
finish on northern white flint ccrn,
which they grow themsele3. They
take great pains to use nothing but
well seasoned old corn, because they
have found that new corn causes bowel
trouble, which is more to be feared in
a turkey than any other fowl, and is
liable to be fatal. Diarrhoea seems to
be more prevalent among turkeys
than any other disease, and a
bird that gets sick is very apt to die.
Foraging in a field of green oats may
give then diarrhoea and cause much
loss. Turkeys not only like northern
flyit com best and fatten best on it.
but it makes their flesh more tender,
juicy and delicious. That given the
little ones is coarsely ground and mix
ed with sweet or sour milk, or made
into bread that is moistened with milk.
This is gradually mixed with cracked
corn, which, when they are about eight
weeks old. is fed clear or mixed with
sour milk. In the fall whole corn is
Inspecting Nursery Stock. State
Entomologist Johnson of Maryland,
says the Baltimore American, is in
specting the nurseries of the State, 32
in number, with over 5,000,000 trees,
under the new iavv guarding against
diseases and insects. About 2.900.COO
trees and vines have been inspected,
certificates given, and the work will
be completed about Oct. 1. On the
waale, nursery stock is in prime condi
tion. San Jcse scale was located in
'hree nurseries, but beiieved to be com
pletely destroyed. In two instances
about 3,000 fruit trees near by, iu

burned. All trees in neighboring
blocks were treated with hydrocyanic
acid as seen as dug. Opposition to this

JAP1VS GREAT EXiERPRlSE IX
LARGE APPROPRIATION BY IM
TO IXFORU AMERICANS MOW TO
Several months ago, the Japanese
Tea Guild sent to this country a special
commission, composed of Mr. S. Mit
suhashi, president of Shizuoka Prefec
tural Assembly, and Mr. J. Ohara.mem
ber of Japanese parliament, to investi
gate the condition of the Japanese tea
trade in the United States and Canada,
and to co-operate with Mr. T. Furuya
and Mr. T. Mizutany, the American
representatives of the Japanese Tea
Guild, in giving publicity to the merits
of Japanese teas and the method of
preparing them for drinking which
would Instire the best results.
Mr. Furuya and Mr. Mizutany are
planning to open tea bazars in many of
the principal cities in the United
States and Canada, where ladies can
enjoy a cup cf fineJapanese tea made
by experts, and at the same time re
ceive instructions which will enable
them to make it equally well at home.
More than half the tea consumed in
the United States and Canada is of
Japanese growth, yet, the majority of
Americans apparently do not under
stand how to prepare it so as to de
velop tho delicious qualities which it
contains. It Is believed by these gen
tlemen that when Americans are in
possession of the secret of making good
tea, tho consumption in this country
will fully equal that of Europe In pro
portion. The Japanese government
has appropriated a large fund to aid
the Japanese tea growers and tea mer
chants in prosecuting this educational
work, and it is hoped that American
ladies will be apt students. The main
bureau of the Japanese Tea Guild has
issued an official recipe for making Jap
anese tea, the translation of which is
First Use a small.dry and thorough
ly clean porcelain teapot.
Second Put in one teaspoonful of
tea leaves for each cup of tea desired.
Third When using Japanese teas,
pour on the required quantity of fresh
boiled water, and let stand with closed
lid from 2 to 3 minutes. Never boll
the leaves. In order to retain the nat
ural flavor, Japanese tea leaves should
be kept in tight can or jar, free from
Note. To thoroughly enjoy the nat
ural, delicate, and sweet flavor of Jap
anese teas, neither sugar nor cream
should be used.
It Will stick.
Here is a recipe for a paste which will
stick anything: Tako two ounces of
clear gum arabie, one and a half ounces
of fine starch and one-half ounce of
white sugar. Dissolve the gum arable
in as much water as the laundress
would Use for the quantity of starch in
diiv.k'd. Mix tho sugar and starch
with tho mucilage. Then cook tho
ia"tiirc in a -vessel suspended in boil
ing water until the starch becomes
clear. The cement should bs thick as
lar and should be kept so. It can be
prevented from spoiling by the addi
tion of eamiuior or a little of cloves.

The Costllaeaa of Great Speed.
The costliness of high speed in rail
way trains Is shown by the following
statement: At sixty miles an hour the
resistance of a train is four times aa
great as it Is 'at thirty miles that is,
the fuel must be four times as great In
the one case as it is in the other. But
at sixty miles an hour this fuel must
be exerted for a given distance in half
the time that it is at thirty miles, so
that the amount of power exerted and
steam generated, in a given period of
time must be eight times as great as
the faster speed. This means that the
capacity of tto boiler, cylinders and
the other parts must be greater with a
corresponding addition to the weight
of the machine.
