VALUE OF SKIM MILK. At this time, when complaints con coming the maximum price of fresh eggs are arising from nil parts of the country, Purdue University's Poultry Department, which is recognised a.« one of the leaders in poultry hus bandry work is giving some valuable instruction concerning the feeding oi milk to the farm hen. People in the large cities are de manding lower priccs but the cry will be in vain, for hens don't often lay many eggs in the late autumn and early winter. Fiesh egg prices nre not controlled bv market manipula tions, but by supply and demand. The fewer the eggs, the higher the prices.
