Colorado to deport the Port Arthurians It costs 65000 a day to keep the SR Louis exposition open This is one of the reasons why It Is such a good show Somehow the little Japs who are temporarily

Oyama missed his main object at Liao Yang most of the Russian papers do not disguise their profound disappointment over the result of the battle at Liao YangThe Russky Invalid organ of the army however Is of the opinion that Gen Kuropatkin both strategically and technically got everything pos 1 ble out of Liao Yang saying It enabled him to cope with an army very much superior to his Field Marshal Oyama was compelled to waste several tens of thousands of men to capture a position which is of no importance now that Kuropatkin has left It is evident that Oyamas plans miscarried since he failed to surround and intlict a decisive blow on the Russian army The other view Is represented by the Rum as follows The view that Kuropatkin was com to leave Liao Yang has nol only Irle Is no use concealing the fact that the evacuation of Liao Yang was a surprise for the Russians Everybody was led to beMove that trite hour had arrived for a decisive struggle It was thus we Interpreted Kuropatklns telegram saying the mon were thirsting for an opportunity to moot the foe Dashing our hopes means a prolongation of the campaign The moment for taking the offensive is now indefinitely postponed This will inevitably influence the fate of Port Arthur and the further devel opment of the Japanese operations The evacuation of Liao Yang will have an effect upon China which already Is in a state of nervous tension under the Influence of Japanese agitation The Japanese of course will do their best to restore Mukden to China and China rntyrt foot the bill We can not de ceive ourselves any longer with the idea chat by retreating Ihto the heart of Manchuria we are gaining time and ad ding to our forces whereas the Sap anese are leathening their line of com munlcatloas and therefore losing strength Our ideas of the military strength of Japan were far more correct It is now known that they can increase their forces as well as we can We fully believe In our ultimate sue cess but It

in Ktiasia and was supposed to be able to hold back the whole army of Japan null oc cnpy most of Korea The first net of Japan was to demolish the Russinn fleet at Chemulpo sending her troops there in n se vere climate pouring forth her men and by spring Russia faced a large patriotic army of Japa nese on the northern boundary of Korea The bondary line of Korea and Manchuria was the bondary line of the two armies Plucky Japan assumed the ag gressive to the surprise of the world stud at a very dangerous time crossed the Yalti surprising the whole of civilization not only by defeating the llussiaji fleet at Chemulpo but also nt Port Arthur and by attack after attack upon Kuropatkins army until he was drivcd back to the strongly fortified Feng Veng Chen It was thought that thp Russians drew back in order to draw the Japs into a trap but inn very short while that place was also added to the territory occupied by the Japanese With remarkable strategy nIl of flan churia south of Lino

The Russians tried to send troops southward to protect Iort Arthur but the heroic Gen Ku roki threatened to capture Lioa Yang und this preventedaddi tion to the Russian troops at that key to Russians position and its isolation was made perfect by the defeat of Gen Stackelbery at Kaichow and the capture of Yin Kow left the Japanese move ment unimpeded toward that base and giving to the Japs another seaport and their armies unite in one unbroken line facing north ward The Russians only move so far has been a sullen retreat and diffusive attitude allowing a third army to the Japanese The boldness of Japans moves are unprecedentedand unexcelled in the history of warefare The Japanese are now prepared so they can secure themselves im pregnably in Manchuria a fer tile country and abundant crops

kite flying contest indulged In by the Chicago grain operators Each Is seeing who can send his kite of prices the highest and If the bear operator can succeed in cutting the Htrliig of his opponent

dresses In green and belongs to respectable vegetable society It is said that the thistles have gained the upper hand to such an extent that tho residents are in danger of actually being driven from their homes The proper authorities have not prevented the dangerous woods from going to seed and the result is that the thistle down has been carried far and near and the aforesaid thistle down displaying the disreputable ten dencies of its degenerate species has at once gotten busy and driven out all the more respectable and desirable members of the vegetable kingdom The first of what promises to be a long series of suits has been begun against the city tho action coming under the law passed by the last state legisla ture providing for a fine of froiri10 to 100 for permitting the thistles to bloom George Sherman the commis stoner of Canada thistles is the plaintiff and Mr Sherman says The whole southwest side is In danger If the thistle comes to bloom and tho wind carries the seeds and deposits them that means that the stalk will spring up Farmers who till the soil on the outskirts of tho city are greatly alarmed and may become the most un fortunate sufferers of the thistle pest Fort Sheridan toJe Enlarged While Fort Sheridan Is not within the corporate limits of ChicagoIn fact big as Chicago is territorially the post is along way from the northern boun dart of

allowed full I freedom Just as soon as they are old enough to know when to go In and out of the rain and storm If farm ers would keep more fowls and em ploy this plan scattering the young COLONY HOUSE WITH RUN and old stock out over the grain and grass fields a great deal loss damage would be done by insect pests than there Is today We have not the nu merous varieties of birds today to do this work as used to be the case Oh no Tho girls are wearing them Jn their hats now So we ought to supply I some domesticated birds to do the works and thereby reap a twofold ben I healthI I grainII fields tho neighborhood were being devoured by tho army worm I placed colonies of pullets in my neighbors fs i fields all about me and the pullets went after the worms as schoolboys would go after a box of strawberries Such feasting you never saw and the best part of the bargain was I had to supply no feed for several weeks Wa ter ad grit was all I had to see to and such growth I never got before nor since and eggs commenced to come about 30 days carlier than usu Ill Furthermore I received thanks I from my surrounding neighbors for I saving at least a portion of their 4 grain My colony houses are built of six Inch drop siding sills studding and I rafters are two by four Ground plan Is six by six feet square facing south or southeast five feet high in front three feet high In rear with a window I clxlighted In front and door two feet els Inches wide and four feet high at the east side as shown in the cut It Is best to have tho window so Jt can bo slid wide open at will and close as easily so we can ventilate to meet the changes of the weather All the furniture that goes with these little houses Is two perches six feet long made of two by four scantling and a brooder and drinking fountain Each house has a yard to the south 12 feet long No houso Is ever complete with 4 out this yard for when the chicks arc first moved to the houses they are probably not old enough to be given unlimited range and It will not do to confine them In their house for it is sure to stunt their growth If a yard Is at hand they can be given the same care and treatment they were accustomed to in the regular brooder house anI we know Just where they are I Following this practice tho operator I Is not affected by inclement weath er no matter how severe or wet or windy all work can be done indoors r In building the colony houses some people try to Improve over my plans and build them larger Dont do it It may be all right to build them larger If you arc sure you never want to use them In cold weather but If built larger V and nothing but the heat that escapes ir from the lamp in tho brooder to i Ijeep It warm It will not be warm enough for your little chicks to enjoy t a great deal of time outside of their I brooder and wo must encourage them to get out as much as possible C E A Matteson In Ohio Farmer J f Regarding the Age of Eggs An eastern farm paper recently pub I lished a lengthy article on how to tel I the age of eggs While the article Is very interesting and the information it contains is no doubt accurate and rella ble we areof the opinion that the farm It who makes the most money out of I eggs it is not very material The only good egg hs the fresh one and the way to make the most money out of the sale of eggs iis to get them into the bands of the consumer as soon as ft can J be done after they are laid Guaran v teed strictly fresh eggs always find I r ready sale and generally at a premium SAT tine of year i a CLEVER HENS OF OREGON Their Owner Says They Can Tell Drones from Working Bees and Never Make a Mistake Worth their weight in coined silver Is the vahio attached to his flock of hens and chickens by W II Pen ning the most extensive producer of honey in the alfalfa legion about On tario Ore This high price for poul try is not on account of the beautyor size or pedigree of his flock but on ac count of their having developed a fac ulty of intelligence which enables them to distinguish between a work Ing bee and a drone which enables him to secure a much larger yield of honey from his 500 hives as his hens keep the number of lazy idle drones who are not armed with stings but who have good appetltcs reduced to a minimum and more cells are filled and sealed daily by the busy workers Mr Penning told the Portland Oro gonlan the story of the wonderful development of lila hens which are allowed to run at large among his bee hives and who like many other birds have a fondness for bees bugs grasshoppers and other inserts but which generally speaking have learned to leave bees entirely alone having In their early attempts at swallowing them found that pain and danger lurked in the stings with which most of them are armed Within tho past year or two he has noticed his hens peeking Into the entrances of hives and occasionally seizing a bee which after placing on tho ground and examining critically they would sometimes swallow and sometimes allow L to flyaway tor This resulted In a careful inveatiga I tlon by him of the strange action of the hens and he soon found that tha fowls had learned to distinguish the stlrgless and useless drones from the armed working bees and that In con seqence tho number of eaters but nonproducers of honey was being kept within reasonable limits He has also discovered that this season the old hens have taught their chicken how to distinguish between the two classes of bees He believes that no other fowls have ever acquired this valuable knowledge and has not found anyone who has ever heard of such knowledge being displayed bv any fowl or bird He Is greatly delighted at his discovery for It means many dollars In his pocket and his discovery Is now published for the In formation of all apiarists students of entomology and the public In general POULTRY YARD POINTERS Good stock Is always In demand in ferior stock must be sold for an infe nor price The little foxw spoil the vines and the little mites spoil the profits in poul try keeping A small flock of fowls carefully han dIed will pay a better profit than a large flock carelessly kept Color or markings do not cut much figure when It comes to selecting a breed for practical purposes When supplying private customers with eggs always sort them both as to color and size They will look better and will bring a better price A feast one day and a famine the next Is not conducive to health thrift or egg production in a flock of fowls Regular feeding well balanced Is tho keynote of success If there are pullets or cockerels In some of the broods that grow faster than the rest mark them and keep them for breeders another season In this way you can build up the stamina of your flock Tho poultryman who lives near a creamery or a dairy where he can get skim milk for his fowls is in luck It Is an excellent food for them and IE especially valuable to use in mixing the mashes Buttermilk is also good In culling the flock it is a good plan to save the hens that proved exception ally good sitters and mothers this sea Eon as the cost of their keeping will be more than offset by their service next season even if they dont lay an egg
