fmWmf April is a good month for getting out the chicks . The April hatched pullet with good care will shell out the eggs that bring the fancy price next winter . Yes , chicks are a lot of bother to people who do not want to be bothered with them . Chicks should not oe fed for 24 to 36 hours after hatching . Some good authorities advocate waiting 72 hours . Good air , clean quarters and pure water are as important as good feeding for the growing chicks . Eggs laid in April are the favorites for putting in cold storage . They are said to keep better than those hatched later . Do not be afraid of liberal feeding for young chicks . They can hardly be fed too much if the food be of the right sort . If you have never tried the dry feeding system for your chicks try it this season . Most people who have tried dry feeding cannot be induced to go back to the old wet mash system . Eggs or Fotols . A subscriber wants to know whether in starting with a variety of pure bred fowls it is better to...

iMflaio Dairy JWotes , Milk with dry hands . Don t allow the milk to stand in the barn . Don t overwork the butter . It injures the texture . Salt the butter by weight or measure , not by guess . In packing butter use parchment paper , not wax paper . Use dairy salt in salting butter . Do not use cheap barrel salt . Wash the Separator thoroughly after using each time . Scald with boiling water the last thing . Cool and stir the cream immediately after separating . Do not mix warm and cold cream . Cool the warm cream first . Have a butter-worker . It saves labor and improves the quality of the butter . Put butter up in rectangular prints . They pack better than circular prints , liandlc better and sell better . It is getting milk cooled quickly that counts . A can of milk will cool , faster ill water at 45 degrees than in air at 35 . Keep tight covers off the cans while cooling the cream or milk to allow escape of animal gas and heat . There is no objection to a light cloth cover to ...

A Memorial Day Story . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 May 1906
A Memorial Day Story . 2 » y ELLEJf L . FETfRy . Mantorville was nothing if not patriotic , and as on the early afternoon of a bright day in late May the strains of martial music pierced the air , the shrill high notes of the fife pealing out above the drum taps that beat quick marching time , the entire populace rushed to the doors and ] windows and the sidewalk to see—the opposing forces of a baseball game the fats and leans , of Mantorville , led by the two grizzled musical veterans of the Civil war , who always headed the Memo- 1 rial day parade . The leans came first in good marching order stepping briskly on , ! alert and smiling , the fats bringing up | the rear , out of step , out of line , some carrying sun umbrellas , some fanning t vigorously and mopping perspiring faces with huge bandannas , the champion , heavy wei g ht of them all dragging his weary avoirdupois along some yards in the rear . Shouts of mirth greeted them , and continuous hand clapping and cat-calls unti...

THE MYSTERIOUS MCCORKLES Suddenly Mrs . Handy heard the sound of wheels , and standing erect among the strawberry vines , wiped the perspiration from her eyes and gazed with curiosity at the carriage coming rapidly , not to say recklessly , down the hill , humping and bounding along the uneven country road . Willie Handy also left his berry-picking to gaze . It was a closed carriage , the only one in all the country round and belonged to the livery-man at Mackford . Aint that a funny buggy , ma ? said Willie . I wonder where it is going ? I believe it is bringing the rest of the McCorkle family , she answered excitedly .
