What their reason is we do not. know—probably a good and suffi cient one—but we must confess we fail to see what that can be. We shall be glad to hear from them on this, point, that the people may know what has prompted their trusted men to permit them to enter upon the Spring contest without organization, in the faco of a thoroughly organized and equipped enemy. That the deferment of the convention will work good we can not believe, and negative work is positive ill.

PROFIT OF SPRING CHICKENS. It .h&s been soul that spring chicken is the only animal of which zoologists could not determine the Agte. I know the age of every brood of mine. Of two broods, hatched May 12 and 19,1 sold 11 eockerels the past week; they weighed 59 \ pouuds, and brought 20 cents a pound, live weight, making $ll.BO. Of these two broods I have left 9 pullets, which weigh about 4 pounds each; at the same price they would bring 87.20, equal to §l9 for the whole. I am feeding one quart of corn a day for every 10 fowls, old and young together.

The hens owe me nothing on account of these chickens, for they laid several eggs in the coops before they were burned out, and have laid every second day since, so that they do their share well. The chicks have therefore paid me up to the ...
