home town of Georgetown a few years agoStateJournal Senator McCreary who is in Kentucky on a brief business trip stated in a newspaper interview that he was a candidate for reelection and expects to win The Sen ator says that this is the list race he ever expects to make I have always tried to be a faithful servant of my constituents and think I have been I was elected Senator and have done all Tcould for mv country and my State and what I want is an indorsement TARIFF FOR REVENUE Is the ideal condition for Southern Planters and Farmers There isno crop wised in the Southern states that is protected by the tariff from foreign competi tion Except a little sugar and rice There is a tariff tax on tobacco but it does not protect the grower for like wheat and corn the price is fixed by the export demand there being a surplus raised of all these products which mu t also must be sold in the markets of the world in competition with other countries which also raisea surplus The price of these products for home consumption is therefore largely fixed by what the surplus exported will bring Cotton the money product of the South is on the tree list and there is absolutely free trade in that staple But et cry thing the Southern planter buys is protected by the tariff and is taxed from 25 to 75 per cent which prevents tmost people frog buying the imported goods on alldIIedcost abroad The trusts and com bines that manufacture shnilarI goods here take advantage tar iff taxation and add to the profits they charge for their products nearly what the tariff tax would be on the imported articles over and above what would be a tail profit So the American consumer be he planter or whoever he is is com pelted to pay the trusts and corpor ationspretty nearly the same tax that would be raid on the imported goods The difference being that instead of the government getting the tax the trusts and corporations collect itin increased profit As some of the border Sonihru slates elected Republicans to epre sent them in Congress the voters must have been led to believe that the protective tariff was an advan tage to them and that trust high prices were a blessing in disguise But with wheat corn tobacco and cattle all protectod by the tariff Iniid et selHng at a low price while cotton unprotected yelling at nl fairly good price the Republican argument that the tariff protects the planter and farmer is shown to be but campaign talk and not borne out by actual conditions The l ideal condition for the planter and farmer is to have the unobstructed right to sell in the dearest markets and buy iu the cheapest markets That can only be brought about iby the Democratic plan ofa tariffs for revenue only t o produce enough money to run the govern ment when honestly and econom ically administered oc BROWN MEMORIAL SCHOOL Dr Worrell of Danville will occupy the Presbyterian pulpit Sunday morning and evening There are still nearly a hundred pupils in the school aud the work and interest continues strong MORE ABOUT BEES For the first six weeks after the bees have moved into their new home the daily routine of work is unbroken even by the queen Then her majesty ceases to a y woikereggs and begins to lav larger eggs which in about twenty days grow up into drone dandys As soon as the queen makes this change in her daily work the watchful little workers begin build ing a new kind of cells curious thimble like structures Everv third day an egg is slipped into one of these cells on that day no other eggsare laid Most carefully tended are these treasures for if properly fed they will develop into princesses So the nurses fill the royal cradles with sweet pungent jelly very different from ordinary bee food But despite their queenly future these infants are shut up ilone in the dark for a number of days just like common working bees As soon as the coverlets are spread over the cell beds the prin cesses following the example of their plebeian sisters wrap them selves up in cocoonsthe royal children always leave a hole in the top of their blankets Two things happen at the end of sixteen days after the laying of the first royal egg The eldest prin cess begins to try to eat her wy out of the cell and the queeu stops work and wanders about distractedly Poor mother she know well that two queens can never rule in the same hive and soon her daughter will try to usurp the throne Since a bee queen is in variably blest with common sense she finally decides not to fight foi the kingdom but to take a number of citizens with her and seek a new home The observant subjects understand the plans of their ruler and those who are loyal to the old queen now begin hanging around in clusters to give their honey a chance to turn into wax so that they may be ready to start build ing new combhouses Meanwhile the queen is watching for a clear sunny day on which to twarm rain would clog their wings and spoil their wax Sometimes a pleasant day is long in coming and the youny princess grows very impa tient and tries to get out of her cell but the wise workers drive her back in for well they know what a terrible fight there would be should the two queens meet When a fa vorable day arrives the queen and her subjects start out to find another home The young princess then finds herself queen of a most pro gressive aud loyal commonwealth Still she does not appear happy and her royal sisters seem to be the cause of her discontent She trie hard to get at the princess cells notalJowIevery whim inalf other respects standsEstillwings gives fortha loud piping noise a low hoarse sound answers her The response comes from the younger sister Since the hu mane workers will not let the queen kill her younger sister there is nothing left but to follow the old r D l

pW r Toe third jueeu now takes the scepter but she is no happier than her orede cessor for there are st younger princesses If there are no longer any discontented bees who are anxious to seek new h ines the workers let her have her way with the rest of her sisters Hereupon the jealous queen visits all the royal cells and gnawing a hole in each thrusts her sting in through the unfortunate hole left in the cocoon and kills each little princess in its cradle Now site can reign in peace knowing that her rivals are dead She accor dingly settles down to every day work LIVrINU STtRev J 11 Valtou

Station yesterday morning afer an illness of some time of a complication of diseases The annual mid summer Inc ing of the Kentucky Press Associ Ilion will be held during the com ng summer at Grayson Sprigs One day of the meeting will be pent at Bowling Green and from there the pencil pushers wilt go to Grayson for a few days of pleasure and outing Some of our enterprising citizens have suggested that a nnss meeting of the citizens he held a w Nearly date to raise funds to send to the stricken people of San Franci co While the amount might tit small yet every little bit helps and that brotherly feeling of charity for tnose who need it is a blessed thing for one to possess We would suggest that the meeting be held at the court house to morrow night We call attention to the advertisement of the Peoples Bank of M Vernon found on anothei page in this issue The officers and direc tors except the cashier are all Rcckcastle men well known to all and need no recommendation from us The cashier Mr Salin was formerly an Owen county man and with many years experience in the banking business He come among us highly recommended as a safe and consistent business man The bank is fitted up with beautiful oak furniture and the latest improv ed screw door sate j nd is indeed quite an acquisition to our town A goodly number of business men in every town and city put off their publicity campaign till they getready for the trade to rush in and buy what they have collected for them The man who is al wavs ready and keeps hammering away at publicity without ceas ing laughs in his sleeve at the methods of such a competitor Purchasers these days dont wait for merchants to get ready to sup ply their wants Be ye always ready is a good business as well as moral and religious motto While there have only been two tax payers ot the count to respond to our invitation of two weeks ago to give some expiession on the good road question yet there are hundreds of citizens in the county who favor the bond issue for the building of good roads and will cast their votes for the same when the opportunity is given Some who were square out against the bond issue when the vote was to have been taken six years ago are now strictly in favor of it and one glorious feature of the situation is that there is nota single man who favored the bond issue six years ago who is against it now Why should we improve our roads The reasons are many and varied It means the bringing ofa new pop ulation to Rockcastle it means the improvement both mentally and morally of those already in Rock castle it means where we have one dollar now in the course of a few years we will have ten It means where land is worth 5 an acre now it will be worth 20 an acre then it means that the man who raises corn can get it to the market and get a reasonable compensation for hislabor it means that it will be a great source of encouragement to those who labor and tilll the soil because they will find a ready mar ket for their farm products it means the betterment andstrength of our schools it means the deposit of more money in our banks it means the buildihg of more residences in our towns it means the starting ot more enterprises in tie county Every citizen in the county realizes that some kind of improvement on the roads is nee essary and they realize still further that as long as the roads are work ed only by the militia that there will be little improvement In this progressive age in which we are now living the individual the corn munity the town the county or the state which makes no effort to hold a footing on the great wheel of progress and advancement can hope for nothing more than an un envied position way in the hack ground There are many things which we need and ought to have but all pass into obscurity when compared with good ro dsWill our citizens not rise to the full im portance of the situation and join in this noble effort Let us have Ian expression now your

handsome and commodious buildings planned personally by Mother Katherine and have given hundreds of Osage children their first knowledge of the white mans learning Many of the teachers are themselves Indians graduates of these or similar schools who have entered with en thusiasm into the education of their fellow tribesmen The Osage schools receive some assistance from the gov ernment and their scope is greatly widened by the orders now in effect from the agents office that every Osage child of school age must be in school in order to draw its share at the annuity payments Used Indian Labor While Mother Katherines benefac tio have always been liberal it is lv plan to let the Indians do the work whenever possible in the construction of buildings and work of a similar character When the Sacred Heart school burned five years ago and was rebuilt Pottawatomie and Ki kapoo Indians made the brick for the new structure and did much of the work towards its construction working of course under the direction of a white contractor Much of the maintenance of this school which is claimed to be the oldest west of the Mississippi river is borne by Mother Katherine anl it was by her visits to this school that she discovered Albert Negahnquet the fullblood Pottawatomie boy educated by her and who is now the only full blood Indian Catholic priest in the world After his graduation at Sacred Heart she paid his expenses through Carlisle and the Catholic university at Washington finally finishing his edu cation at Rome from whence he returned only two years ago to take up his work among his own people Is Founder of Several Schools A number of schools of the same sort have boon founded and maintained Iff Mother Katherine probably the best known being the Nazareth Institute 1tIi Muskogee which was founded in 18 It was beset by many difficulties ing its earlier years but survived them all and is now a flourishing institution The institutions which have pros pered the most and in which Mother Katherine has taken the greater inter est are however naturally those among the tribes which were already under the influence of Catholic teach ings the Osages and the Potta watomies The Osages had of course been instructed in the Catholic faith before their removal from Southern Kansas by the fathers at the old Osage missions now St Paul first un der the directions of the venerable Father Schumacher and later under Father Paul Ponziglione a near rela tive of the royal family of Italy who made many journeys among the Osages after their removal to the territory Father Scroll of Independence Kan also used occasionally to follow the trails through what is now Oklahoma as far west as Fort Sill The beginning of the work among the Pottawatomies was also made as far hack as 1871 when Father Robot a French missionary offered his ser vices to the bishop of Little Rock who then had jurisdiction over this terri tory and struck out into the Indian country He settled first at Atoke but in 1S74 moved to Sacred Heart found ing the famous abbey of the Benedic tines there which is the only mon MOTHER DREXELIistery in the United States governed directly from France Its first abbot was Father Felix DoGrasse a lineal descendent of the famous French ad miral Upon his death two years ago he was succeeded by Father Murphy a native of Savannah Ga and the first man of American birth to join the brotherhood at Sacred Heart BERNHARDT OUTWITS TRUST Denied Playhouses by Theatre Com bine She Plays to Vast Audience- in Tent Mine Sarah Bernhardt the cele brated actress has entered the arena as a trust buster When she made preparations for bookings in Texas she found the playhouses of the state closed to her on account of her re fusal to appear under the patronage of the theatre syndicate In Texas therefore she was compelled to appear in a tent A reek or two ago a novel method of producing a play was in augurated at Dallas when Sarah played Camille in a big circus tent with an audience of 5000 persons During the performance fully 10000 persons crowded around the tent and would have paid to get in if it had been big enough As it was the tent only seato 4200 and 800 had to stand or sit on the ground It was the most novel wild west show ever seen The tent was a huge affair and from the outside looked big enough to house a threeringed circus The novelty of playing in a circus tent appealed to the actress and she gave her interpretation of the char acter of Camille as naturally as cleverly and with as much force and power as if confronted by an audience of New Yorkers or Parisians in the most modern of theatres The thou sands who greeted Mme Bernhardt at Dallas desired as much to show their indorsement of her fight against the trust as to be entertained by hey matchless talent as an actress arrangementstoand Austin Texas and Oklahoma City Oklahoma Territory In other Texas cities on her itinerary large equippedfor Hopeless Ignorance Plynnm tell yes theys

DOLLARS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF GIGANTIC CONSTITUTION More Destructive and Terrible than the new Floating Giant the English DreadnaughtOld Constitution to be Saved One hundred thousand dollars for the preservation of the old frigate Constitution and 10000000 for the construction of a huge new battleship of the same name are two provisions to be included in the naval appropriation bill The new Constitution is to be the most powerful ship of war afloat She will excel the British Dreadnaught recently launched by King Edward by as much as the Dreadnaught will ex cel anything afloat when she is com pleted Her authorization may be said to be directly the result of Togos victory in the Sea of Japan It was the British naval attache on board Togos flagship who hurried home after that battle and warned the Ad miralty of the needs of the British and this brought about the construction of the Dreadnaught Now we are to follow and eclipse the Brit ish naTal wonder The Navy Department has secured full information concerning the plans of the Dreadaaught and the arrange ment of her powerful armament so that it is known exactly what must be lone to beat her In order that the department may not be tunpered in any way in deter mining upon the plans of the mew Constitution the forthcoming bill will pro vide that the Secretary of the Navy may use the contingent fund to secure information from shipbuilders the world over if he so desires before finally accepting the design of ten milliondollar pacifier Provisions for Ship This provision for the new American sea fighter is in linn with the desire of the President and the earnest re commendation of Admiral Dewey who recently appeared before the Naval Committee of the House and gave a spirited talk in support of his views as to the necessity of con structing larger and more powerful battleships for the American Navy At the time the naval estimates were made up last fall Secretary Bonaparte was opposed to any such increase but he has since come around to the side of the President and is now heartily in favor of the committee proposition The naval experts in Washington have long oeen convinced that the IGOOOton battle ships Michigan and South Carolina authorized by the last Congress represent the limit of possibility on a displacement not decidedly greater To go beyond in any ap preciable degree the fighting efficiency of such ships it will be necessary to have not only more powerful arma ment but higher speed and greater steaming radius to gain which there must be heavier and more powerful machinery and greater coalcarrying capacity The displacement of the Dread naught is but 2000 tons greater than that of the Michigan or the South Carolina Naval construction ex perts that an addition of 2000 tons to the displacement of the American ships is insufficient to all three of the factors necessary to ma terially improve upon them and the increase would be entirely consumed by the provision for any one of these factors The extra guns would take it allas would the extra necessary to develop high speed or the greater bunker capacity essential to wider steaming radius They point out that in the Dreadnaught it was at tempted to preserve two of these factors gun power and speed but that to do so it was necessary to sacrifice the armor protection which they be lieve such a battleship should have No Limit to Cost No sacrifice in armament speed or steaming radius will have to be made in designing the new Constitution The only limitation placed upon the Secretary of the Navy by the Naval Affairs Committee is that her hull and machinery shall not cost more than 0000000 The provision for the bat tleships Michigan and South Carolina now the largest ships building for the navy was 4000000 each and there mornIhemSecretary decides to go to 20000 tons or beyond the extra 2000000 now provided will easily it It is estimated that the armor and armament for the ship will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of 3500 000 in addition to the hull and ma chinery and that other fittings will hiring the total for the new Constitu tion up approximately to 10000000 The Dreadnaught Is planned to carry ten 12inch rifles The Michi gan and South Carolina are to carry eight 12inch guns The Dreadnaught will be able to concentrate six guns for bow or stern fire with eight on either broadside while the American ships can use four guns dead ahead or dead astern and all eight ahead or astern on a quartering fire with all eight on either broadside So that in point of fire they are nearly as ef ficient as the Drefldnaught which excels materially only in the single point of speed To counterbalance Ibis the American ships have the decided advantage in armor protectionn The of Guns The will have as high 1001 as the Dreadnaught and the flouble advantage over the British I hip of greater gun power and morel omplete armor protection She will be more able to inflict blows and bet ter able to withstand them She will carry twelve 12inch rifles so ar ranged that the can concentrate eight of them in firing dead ahead or dead astern or off the bow or quarter and ten on either broadside Gum vs Mfssoas The twentyseventh annual meeting of the Womens Foreign Society of the of held recently disclosed the fact that three and a half million dollars gumthunwords 11000000 is spent for gum and only 7500000 for missions Carefully compiled data show that 178000000 a year goes for candy 700000000 for jewels and tobacco and millinery go away up into the millions tobacco considerably in the lead The Kerosene Lamp The ordinary kerosene lamp is the best illustration of the highest type of combustion furnace The hot gases passing up through the narrow throat of the chimney draw the colder air through the hot wire gauze at the bottom and bring it near a tempera ture which will feed combustion and THE NEW CONSTITUTION This be the Most Powerful Battleship Afloat say accomplish machinery

a little the combustion is greater than the capacity of the furnace and smoke results When the chimney is raised from the bottom too much cold air enters the fire is chilled and again we have smoke

THE COX= GO COUXT11Y Men Average Four Feet Six and HeightWithouthave Peculiar Customs London town is very much interest ed in six small human beings who have recently arrived from Africa Colonel Harrison an officer in the British Army has brought with him BelgiumCongos yearintoStanley forest hoping to capture one or more okapis This part of his ex pedition was a failure On the other hand he succeeded in living four months amid the pygmies and per suaded four men and two women of the tribe to accompany him to Europe atcompIishcdof a thousand difficulties Colonel Harrison and his proteges were detained at Khartoum and later at Cairo for several weeks certain English philanthropic societies having earnest ly opposed their expatriation The explorer was obliged to prove to the British Government that the dwarfs were with him voluntarily The six pygmies were of course duly measured by the English anthropologists on their arrival in London Their mean heiiIit was 4 feet 6 inches for men and 4 feet 1 inch for women The Congo Pygmies are very strong and also bravo without being generally aggressive although Colonel Harrison reports that last winter during his stay in the forest of Ituri a party of pygmies attacked a Belgian caravan lulling seventeen carriers and plundering the goods They are nomads having neither fields nor houses and live only on game and wild fruits Their household utensils are limited to a few earthen saucepans in which they cook game without taking tho trouble to skin it They eat the skin as well as the meat even breaking the bones with their teeth Are Sons of Nature They walk about completely unclothed Only among the tribes that live on the confines of the forest and have relations with the negroes of greater stature do the women wear a girdle of leaves Both the men and women shave the head partially some cut straight paths across their wooly hair others dress it with birds feathers or squirrel tailsThey have absolutely no religious In stincts and believe in neither God nor devil They generally practice polygamy As with the Chinese the birth of a girl is regarded as a calamity Strangely enough the young mothers sometimes steal the newborn children of the neighboring tribes of normal stature leaving their own babes in exchangeLast of a Great Race The Pygmies do not live to a great age said Col Harrison Life is hard in the somber Congo forests nature is a pitiless taskmaster to this remnant of the race that once peopled the greater part of Africa The rain that falls in torrents for eight months transforms the ground into a marsh It may be added that the pygmies are remarkably intelligent that they appear to have the gift of language to an incredible degree that they excel in the art of extracting iron from the ore of forging it and of making arrow heads of it without othor tools than round stones Electricity to be Cheaper An invention of the greatest im portance which will effect a revolution in the industrial world has been made by a Roman electrician Adolph Tome who has succeeded in solving the problem of storing electrical energy His invention will make it possible to transmit an electric current with a loss of a little less than 2 per cent no matter how great the distance It will be possible for instance to supply heat light and power for all purposes to the city of Paris with electricity generated by the waterfalls of Switerland at a price that will drive all the present electric companies out of business An American syndicate is said to have offered the inventor 1000000 for the American patent

prevalent along the Pacific coast south from San Fran Cisco The State of California the people of California and the agricul tural interests of California began a number of years ago a determined ef fort to colonize that section of the world with poultry growers No stone was left unturned to make this effort successful the railroads the state statisticians the agricultural department and the people kept It POULTRY BUILDING CLIMATE afloat until California has become one of the largest poultry producing states of the country and San Fran cisco and the Pacific Coast are being supplied with the finest quality of freshlaid eggs and poultry of all kinds produced at homea supply which formerly came from east of the Rocky MountainsWe this for the benefit of the states lying south of the above mentioned line If the people in these districts Individually locally and na- tIonally would take hold of the up building of the poultry interest of the growing of all kinds of land and water fowl for market and the producing of freshlaid eggs in winter it would not be many years before the fields of the South would bloom again as in the olden days when cotton was king and when the planter of these districts rolled in wealth enjoying the distin guished attitude of being envied by mankindThe operandi to be pursued in connection with the poultry in dustry is extremely simple and the only wonder is that it is not more generally carried out It appears however to need the energetic work of one or two men in each community to demonstrate to the surrounding farmers the advantage and profit in employing uptodate methods The barnyard flock can within a short time and at a very small expense be bred up from an average of or 75 eggs a year to a production of 125 or 150 eggs per hen constituting the difference between a loss and a hand some profit from the flock All it Is necessary to do is to decide upon some suitable breed of fowl and infuse new blood into the flock each year by the portation of a reasonably wellbred cock By this means not only can egg produc tion be increased but if a general purpose breed Is selected a great average In crease in the weight of the fowls will be absolutely assured In connection with this nothing could be more profitable to handle than the growing of fruits and market stuff throughout the entire South Two other features of great value might easily be added that is culti vating squabs for market and keep Ing bees for the production of honey and beeswax In the local market beeswax sells now almost 40 cents a pound In the southern or warmer climates where winter feeding would not be of long duration the cultivation of bees for beeswax alone would become a profitable vocation even if the extracted joney were dis tributed among the neighbors as a gratuitous compliment from the growers of the bees But the bees must be compelled to build their own honeycombs to facilitate which as well as to have a larger product of beeswax the boxes for receiving the honey should be so constructed as to the formation of a large amount of honeycomb or beeswax in preference to honey earnestlytakenpartments in every Southern State and as they should be with a A determined to aid the upbuild ing of all these Interests throughout these sections wealth would be added thereto through the enrich ment of the soil as the natural re eu tQgrowing

was a gathering of representative business men from the South look ing for national aid to the upbuild ign of the localities from which they came Nothing should be more loudly applauded and approved by the people of this country than government aid properly applied throughout the South ern States but this aid should be so applied as to make the people more industrious and to add to their wealtn AND AT Ten millions of dollars or more prop erly expended each year through the medium of agricultural colleges and departments throughout the states would be a valuable investment by the National Government for the entire nation provided these influences tend andIteach the growing communities how to care for their lands and their homes in a manner that would return to the soil its former and to make the products of the ground increase and multiply and enrich the people But nothing could be more unfortu nate for any locality than to have sums of money voted to that pur pose and have it made use of Lot political advancement and the aid of classes rather than the masses Fowl Bulletin in Demand- Of the making of Government docu ments there is no end This too although the President has forcibly expressed the opinion that the liter ary output of the departments could be cut onehalf But there are bulletins and bulletins The Tapeworms of American Chickens and Turkeys prepared by ActingZoologistis one that a city chap might classify as a useless publication Even though the important subject of tapeworms of poultry has received but little attention in this country the indi vidual who mistakes cooked veal for chicken would not sanction the expenditure of public money for such a ridiculous document In MISSISSIPPI POULTRY RANCH effort since often this he would greatly err There Is scarcely a bulletin it is said by mem bers of Congress that is in so great demand as the one entitled The Tapeworms of American Chickens and Turkeyst The Fertility of Eggs In considering the possibilities for eggstheprime importance Data regarding the factors affecting the fertility of eggs are of great value in the poultry in dustry this question having been studied at a number of the experiment stations in the United States and else warm quarters for laying stock and overfeeding as well as a cold sea son are commonly believed to exer eggfertilityor stored is also believed to affect the proportion which will hatch as well as the conditions under which incuba tion occurs The vigor and character of the parent stock and the length of time the male bird has been with the flock are also important At the out set officials of the Department of Agriculture wish it distinctly pointed out that fertility and hatchability are not necessarily identical An egg may be fertile and the germ still not have sufficient vitality to produce a healthy eHclc under the ordinary con ditions of incut ttnn In a series of incubator experiments at the Rhode Island Station of 8677 eggs tested 83 per cent were found to be fertile while only 46 per cent of the fertile eggs or 2 tG per cent of the itotal number of eggsr hatched under the conditions of the tests Experi ments made at the Maine Station Showed that there was as great variation in fertility as in the total yield or Q orent hens some producing eggs that were all highly fertile and others that were completely infertile and furthermore that eggs of some hens varied greatly in this respect at dif ferent times The observed facts seem to show that while a heavy egg yield does not hindor facility provid ed the hens are allowed to rest before they begin to lay again infertility is likely to result after hens have been laying long and heavily The Ohio Experiment Station made a RITE BARRED PLYMOUTH ROCKS BILTMORE G richness study of the effect of the presence the male bird on egg fertility Forty fa hens which had previously kept without males were placed in pens with three male birds and the percentage of fertile eggs observed for nine days after mating This in creased from 0 on the day of mating to 95 per cent on the eighth day after mating fertility of the eggs was apparently not materially affected until the twelfth day after re moving the roosters This point was also studied at the Ontario Agricul tural College and Experimental Farm The hens were from the male and the eggs each day were placed in an incubator and tested with respect to their fertility Of the eggs laid during the first four days after the male was removed 70 per cent were fertile of those laid on the fifth day Gl per cent on the sixth per cent on the seventh 49 per cent on the eighth 12 per cent on the ninth 2 per cent and on the tenth all were infertileThe influence of the male on the total number of produced was also tested with two lots Lot 1 con sisted of 5 pullets 5 hens and 1 cock lot 2 of 5 hens and 5 pullets of the same varieties as lot 1 Both pens were fed and cared for in the same way Lot 1 959 eggs and lot 2 972 eggs It may thus be seen that there was but very little difference in the number of eggs Hid by the two pens FertilityI at different stations while not entirely conclusive seem to indicate that in order to secure fertile which will hatch it is desirable for the laying stock not to be kept in very warm quarters or overfed the males must be kept with the hens contin uously and only eggs used which have been after the male has been with the hens several days most desirable fowls whose eggs are to be used are those from vigorous parent stock known to produce a high per centage of fertile eggs while in order to secure a great percentage of fertile eggs the hens should be allowed a after each laying period The eggs should be handled very carefully and not subjected to extremes of tem perature in storage and used only when comparatively fresh As a whole it may be said that the ordinary conditions prevailing on the farm as a rule favor the production of egg of high vitality The keeping quality of eggs is a very different matter from fertility as it Is the general belief that infertile eggs keep better than fertile Keep Warm How do you manage to always keep cattle looking so sleek and fine was asked of a successful stock raiser Why I keep them comfortable he replied from the day they are born until I sell them And this is to a great extent the secret of success in stock growing The best farmers are the best stock raisers and this is a branch of farm ing that always wins in the long run If you can raise all the rough feed and grain that your stock need do so by all means but dont neglect the stock to do this Better buy of some less fortunate neighbor who has more feed than stock There are other things beside feed too Have you seen cattle and horses humped and shivering day after day through the worst part of the winter Do you think that those animals were com fortable Picture yourself in that con dition and imagine how you would like it It is difficult to see how some men can crawl into a warm bed at night and sleep soundly until morning while their live stock stand half frozen and perhaps halffed all night Such a mans feelings must be pretty well blunted It doesnt pay in dollars and cents either Now it doesnt cost much to fix up a comfortable shelter for stock when old hay and straw can be had almost for nothing When a man lets his stock suffer from the cold it is a clear case of shiftlessness But every year there are fewer fewer of classTUse of Nitrogen Limited extravagant misleading IThe made by many of the circulars those widely heralded bac teria for inoculating barren soil which were to revolntionize agriculture have Jed the United States Department or Agriculture to issuo a warning to the farmers In the first place the inocu lation is very limited in application If the ground is already infected with these nitrifying germs further addition of the artificial anyI duct is useless Thojr in no sense place the usual forms of fertilizer it the ground is barren no benefit can be expected to result from its mere inocu lation with bacteria phosphates pot ash lime or other plait food must be added along with the nitrogenfixing microbes In a soil already rich in nitrogen the bacteria do little good Furthermore many of the bacteria now on the market are of no value whatever Of nineteen samples bought in the
