INCUBATORS IN EGYPT." , •fke announcement is made by Mr. W. H. Cadman that he has discovered how the ancient Egyptians incubated chick ens to the number of 120,000,000 a year, lie has found incubators which he states were used in Egypt 5,000 years ago.

They 'Imd no..oil .stoves', or. gas. or electric heated, incubators, but they had ovens which worked better evon though they rccpiircd -more constant tending. Each oven was calculated to hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuci by which it was heated consisted of' chopped straw and dung, but for the last ten days of the hatching the energy was .supplied altogether by tho chickens themselves. It is tho com monest error -of those operating our modern incubators to use too much heat, especially towards the end of tho periou. ami now we may learn from the old Egyptians how not to do things as well as how to do them.

CROPS FOR PLOUGHING IN Tares is good crop for this purpose, and is better in this respect, especially on a light sandy soil, than musta'.jj and tares" are a bulky orop and open up the soil admirably. A great deal, however, depends ou the conditions of I soil mixture. While mustard r i doubt an excellent preparation i wheat, but it should be plougned in at I the end of six or seven weeks, as soon as tho flowers have made their ap pearance, and before the plank, have icachcd the seeding stag-. \\ hut mustard can be used as a green manure, within two months of its being sown. If clover is used, it is simply turned in and left to rot, when in about six weeks time, tho ground will be ready to re ceive tho cultivation uecessary to fit It for a succeeding crop. Rape somo xin.es shows a superiority over spring or autumn sown tares, and lupins, peas and vetches can also bo used for the purpose of green manuring.

A spe cialist whom I consulted said mine was a particularly bad case of dandruff—so bad that he knew of only one thing which he could hope would overcome the trouble and resume my scant tresses to their former luxuriance and,beauty. He told me to get mv chemist to pre prepare a lotion composed f three ounces bay rum, one ounce lavonu de composes, and quarter drain menthol crystals, ana to rub tlii s into the scalp twice a day with the finger tips. I was sceptical, but did as I was told. To my delighted astonishment I soon noticed that my hair had stopped falling out, and in a few weeks my head was covered with a new growth of downy hair. f continued the use of the lotion until I possessed a head of hair, all my own, that is the wonder of all my friends.
