POULTRYDEPARTMENT. What ara They Worth? Tins question is often asked us by persons who stand looking at yonng chickens as they are being taken from the nest. Nine men in ten would offer you from 10 to 50 cents each with no thought beyond the weakness and frail' ty incident to all animal life. Hut when we consider a yard whose chicks have averaged to sell for over $5 each nt maturity; and that while the ave- rage expense for food consumed is less than 60 cents each a fait correspond- ing cost to the producer is not less than $1 each a s tiling price would be low at $34 per dozen and when hatch- ed before Mi rch 15 $30 per dozen. It is folly to sell for less; They are the winners at our fall exhibition which are the grandest exhibttive mediums to increase winter sales. Winter exhibi- tions get buyers of eggs. Judging by many letters sent us producers are far from satisfied when chicks stand them at one week old only a dollar each. A letter before me now says; '-I hatched 23 chicks: ha...

C) A MKKD OF lIKkSHIRES Or How to Best Ditp o or the docta Orewn en the Farm. Txth A J. Lovejojr. As the abundant crops of corn and othec grim is now about secured ovef the entire country there will no doubt be many persons desirous of disposing of the same in a more profitable way than hauling the crop in bulk to mar. ket and at the same time increase the fertility of the farms. To these I would say start a.herd of well-bred Berkshires and thus convert a bushel of corn or its equivalent into from twelve to.cigh- teen pounds of first-class meat which at present prices live weight would bring .from 60 to 90 cent per bushel for the grain fed. The general farmer may say he can- not afford to invest as much money as it would take to start a herd of thor- ouehbreo hoes. Now. it is not nec essary to start with a herd of show ani- mals costing from $ too to $300 each unless he has plenty of money and thorough experience in the manage- ment of a fine herd and is especially adapted to the bu...

J J . -'. POULTRY DEPARTMENT. The Poultry Interest. Synopsis of n lecturt delivered by Dr. C A. Robinson before the Hudenti of Purdue University Lafayette Ind. Febuary 27 1801 The poultry interest taken as a whole is as broad and as old as the big round eartti. 'As it interests us it is as extensive as the country in which we live; aye in its relation to our ma- terial interests it. is not circumscribed by the boundaries of the United States. Its influence and its operations extend across the northern bonndarics of this nation into Canada and is not limited by the width of either the Atlantic or the Pacific oceans. From Germany from Itily from France from England on the east and from China Australia and Japan on the west do we feel the magnetic current of influence that in vades the poultry interest. The poultry business is not a little business. In its details it seems to be somewhat diminutive I grant but so surely as 'Little drops of water Little grains of sand Make the. mighty o...
