Not in Circulation There.
An error of a new clerk in the mail
ing department of an eastern publish

the mailing of a prospectus to a world
famous statesman, who had been dead
for some years. The letter was re
turned a few days later with the fol
lowing indorsement: "In Heaven. .

here. 1 believe it would be useless for
me to subscribe for them. Yours re

name of the famous statesman.
A Superior Person.
F H. Elliott, the secretary of the
American Automobile association,
was talking about a somewhat super
cilious and conceited millionaire.
"He's a very superior person," Mr.
Elliott said, smiling. "He's the sort
of person who would be sure to go
to a horse show in a motor car and to
an automobile show in a monoplane."

POPULAR BREED OF CHICKENS
They Now Rival Plymouth Rocks and
Wyandottes They Are Hardy
and Good Winter Layers.
There are two varieties of this
breed. Single Comb and Rose Comb.
As compared with the Plymouth Rocks
and "TVyandottes they are longer In ap
pearance and not so massive. They
were originated by the farmers of the
state of Rhode Island and are very
popular In that state. They have also
Rhode Island Red.
grown In popularity in this country to
such an extent that they now rival the
Plymouth Rocks and the Wyandottes.
They are hardy, good winter layers
wd fair summer layers. In color they
ire a rich, bright red. with black tails
ind more or less black In the wings.
During warm weather they are more
jiven to incubating than the two
ireeds mentioned above. The stand

CONCRETE NESTC FOR HENS
Can Be Used as Shelter for Fowl
While Hatching and for Little
Among other things, a concern in
Iowa is making concrete hens' nests
one of which is here shown in active
operation, says the Popular Mechanics.
Concrete Nest for Hen.
The hen shown hatched 15 chicks In
I the nest, and then used it as a place
of shelter for herself and family at
night and on stormy days.
A common cause of sterile eggs is
that the hens or the male bird, or both,
nro in too fat a condition. At the be
ginning of the breeding season the
stock birds are often fat. and in such a
condition they are unlikely to make
satisfacton breeders. Fat hens not
only produce a large percentage of in
fertile eggs, but they are less prolific
than are those of a lean, hard condi
tion. Fat male birds, too. are generally
lethargic and lazy, with the result that
the' do not perform their work in a
Secrets of Success.
Pure water is as important In the
hen park as in the home. Scald the
drinking fountains daily, and keep
ihem clean and sweet Change the wa

cret of success with any stock. Feed
enough to satisfy them, remembering
'hat a healthy chick has a voracious
ippetite. But never allow any sur
plus to accumulate. If they do not
pick the food up clean, cut the next
ration a little shorter.
Fowls have no sense of smell. They
nave nostrils, but no noses.
An ointment of vaseline and sulphur
s a good one for scaly legs.
Do not forget that grits and oyster
shell are as essential to fowls on lim
ited range as food itself.
An eternal fight against lice and
oiites Is the only thing that means
victory for the poultryman.
A broiler should have a good, plump
oreast. broad back, clean yellow legs
and yellow skin, and small comb.
Sour foodshould never be allowed
io remain in the feeding pans from
one meal to auother. Sour feed is dan
gerous. In raising little chicks they should

he nock and feed them separately.
In this way they will not be deprived
of their share of the food.
When the hen shows a pale head
and is sluggish, indigestion Is at fault.
Unless too far gone, a change to a
grass run will be beneficial.
Methods In all business matters is
one of the secrets of success. Every
poultry breeder should follow a metb-

TOO MUCH FOR HACK DRIVER
High-Sounding Name Made Old Man
Think There Was Something
Mysterious in the Wind.
After a long, hot and dusty journey
by train the New York commercial
traveler arrived in Richmond, brushed
enough dust off bis face to make sure
'.hat the right man was getting off,
and hailed one of the little sea-going
hacks common in the Old Dominion
city. It was driven by an aged negro.
"Drive me to a haberdashery," said
the traveling man surveyed his soiled
raiment with disfavor. "Yessuh." said
the negro. "Giddup." The old horse'
started off at a little stiff-legged jog
trot. The driver seemed to be think

horse to a stop, and leaned backward
to his fare. "Scuse me, suh," said he.
"but wey do you all want to go?"
"Drive me to a haberdashery." said
the traveling man. "Oh, yessuh," said
the negro. "To be sure. "Giddup."
The hack rattled on for a little way,
and then the negro stopped, got off
the box and poked his head in over
the little door. "Mebbe Ah didn't get

traveling man &iid for the third time
that he wanted to go to a haberdash

able to their owners as breeders.
There is no advantage In selling oft
the old stock of geese, as they live
many years, and the older birds are
generally best for breeding purposes,
and the young ones bring better prices
in the iuarket.
Do not proceed to fatten the geese
suddenly, but confine gradually. Allow
several in a small yard, which should
be kept clean and somewhat darkened.

Do not give them green food while

from bathing water during this period,

Goslings may be put up to fatten
when from S to 10 weeks old. After
they are twelve weeks old they will
begin to shed and will fatten readily
then until the end of the season. Pre
vious to being confined they should
have a good range where grass Is plen
tiful, and It will then require but a few
days to get them ready for killing.
Cull Out Now.
If you have not already done so, it is
time now to carefully cull your adult
breeding stock. Females which ym.
intend to keep over another wintei
should be given open-air quarters
with a good sized, well-shaded, green
irass range. Do not allow any male
birds to run with them. They need a
rest. Choose only the best year-old,
and in some cases two-year-old stock
:hat is in good order, sound, healthy
ind vigorous. Male birds which you in
tend to keep over, you should give
small colony coops and run on grass
land. Do not hold over any males un
less you are sure that you wish tc
breed them another season. All adult
stock which is culled out and which
rou do not intend to keep should be
sold according to quality either as
breeding stock or as market poultry,
making sure to disiiose of them before
the birds begin to molL Be sure the
adult birds in summer quarters are not
too heavily fed.

poultry is considered an unimportant

Wheat Oats and Barley Uni
versally Good Throughout
The reports that come to hand from
the wheat fields of the western Cana
dian provinces show remarkably good
yields In all parts. Yields are record
ed of wheat going 35 and 40 bushels
in many places, and oats from 60 to
100 bushels per acre. Barley and flax
arc splendid. The thousands of Amer
icans throughout the United States
who have friends in Manitoba, Sas
katchewan or Alberta will be pleased
to learn of the great success that
has followed their efforts. Many of
these have not confined themselves to
the growing of grain, but have also
gone into the cattle industry. On the
luxurious grasses that are sc abun
dant there, in almost all districts,
make this Industry safe and profitable.
The land sales reported by the rail
way companies and by the different
land companies show the great in
crease that will likely take place
during the next year in farming oper
ations. What has been said time and
time again may now be well repeated,
that there is no place on the Ameri
can continent where the same oppor
tunities are afforded the man looking
for a home, for the young man start
ing out in life, the man with a grow
ing up family, who desires wider
scope for his ambition. The Cana
dian government agents located at
different points in the states will be
glad to advise the reader of the condi
tions, and relate to him instances of
the great success that has followed
farming in Western Canada.
