FRUMFUM3\ TAM TlMtfrW HOPPERS FOR POULTRY FEEDING. ' A bulletin which will be issued by the Department of Agriculture shortly will show a very ingenious hopper JOT use to feeding poultry. In the dry feeding of poultry, which Is attracting considerable attention at the present time a hopper, or some similar device for supplying feed is essential. Hopper feeding, according to J. E. Rice and R. C. Lawry, of the New York Cornell .Station, saves labor, guards against . underfeeding, and makes the keeping of fowls in large flocks less objectionable because it avoids crowding, which is likely to occur when considerable numbers are fed a wet mash. • Experiments which have been conducted at the New York Cornell Station Indicate "that for young fowls of tke laying varieties, kept for com- ' mercial egg production, the feeding of the dry mash in a feed hopper which is accessible at all tim«s during the day is to be recommended." The above authorities have devised a hopper for use ii} the dry f...

It does not seem to be thoroughly well understood that the eggs of the guinea hen are highly valued by bakers (or cake baking, and that the young guinea fowl will bring the highest price of any broiler upon the market. If more attention were given to the selection of tho breeding stock, preventing too close inbreeding and providing a separate house away from the chickens for the guinea fowls, their cultivation might become more general and profitable. Guinea hens may be taught to live and rear their young almost the same aB chicken bens. The trouble experienced from keeping guinea fowls, in buildings or poultry houses is the overpowering influence ...

T'T':-. 1 y .;. ",;• ! . " vV" • v . ■ . • I F/mTnmfs UTILIZING CORN FODDER. The winter can be made a prafltable season if the foods are used economically. There are periods when farmers are busy planting, cultivating and harvesting their crop*, at whlcfix times all other departments of the farm are overlooked in the efforts to secure from the soil as much as possible. The soli must be repaid and something must go back to the land in order that it may continue to yield. It is of advantage to reduce the cornstalks to short lengths,, for the reason fhat they will then be in better condition to absorb the liquids of the stalls and even when such work is over there will always be found more to do. The value of corn fodder largely depends upon the stage of growth when It is harvested. The fodder may lose much of its nutritious matter by reason of cutting down the stalks but a few days too late. Farmers annually lose much of the value of their fodder crop by mismanagement, not only by fai...

THE POPULARITY OF BACON. Prof. Snyder, at the Minnesota Station, gives the following reasons why bacon has become BO popular and desirable. In reference to tests made at the station, he says it was cut in thin slices and baked or broiled In tho oven until criep and brown. All fat which was cooked out was saved and eaten with bread and other foods which made up the daily fare. On an average about ninety-four per cent, of the protein and ninety-six per cent, of the fat of the ration containing bacon were digested, and about eighty-eight per cent, of the energy was available. Calculated values for bacon alone showed over ninety per cent, proteiu and .4 and .G pound digestible fat, which is about two-thirds as much as is feund in butter. "Lean fcacon," says the professor, "contains about twice as much digestible fat as other meats, making It a>t the same time, and even at a higher price per pound, a cheaper food than other meats. Bacon fat is easily digestible, and when combi...

10 Health and Roads. That there is an analogy in cleanliness and godliness is a fixed belief in the minds of many; that there should be a relation between good roads, health and morals may not be obvious to those who view conditions superficially, but that such a relationship exists we have it on no less an , authority than Dr. Allerton S. Gushman, assistant director of the office of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture. In an ad- dress recently delivered the doctor asserted that whenever he traveled over a good road he saw the children Invariably well cared for. and where bad roads existed the children were usually neglected, unkempt and unwashed. Assuming that the doctor's observations are sustained by facts which generally prevail, bad roads are a menace to the future, fo« neglected children do not develop into good citizens, and poor citizens make a bad community, which is a detriment and a hindrance to civilized progress. We all know that bad roads am a d...

FARM AND GARDEN WORK HORSES. Horses that have been well cared (or during the winter months' will be more able to stand the work of the busy season than those which have had to rough it. When the early spring work begins horses should be especially well cared for, both in grooming and feed, for it **lß the change from complete idleness to constant and hard toll that sitarts them downward and gives them that tired, dejected look we so oftearjsee. They should always be taken of the barn to be curried and should be watered before feeding. This latter is for a two-fold purpose; first, to wash out the mouth, throat and stomach, and, second, to keep from washing the feed out ot the stomach before it has time to di gest. During the busy season horses should have fresh water given them every time, and that often.
