The Hamburg, said to have originated in Holland, although the name has come from the German city' of Hamburg, is a small fowl. If anything, smaller than the Leghorn. There is more or less variation In size among the varieties, the Black and Silver (Prepared fey the fnitpfl States Department of Agriculture.) Not infrequently improperly built and unsuitable coops have resulted in accidents and damage to the fowl in transit, or have presented the birds in such objectionable surroundings that tl ev have been lieiiher pleasing Prpared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Eggs and meat for home uses or for marketing are not the only possibilities of the poultry Industry. In addition to the fowls kept primarily for their economic value or utility there are many throughout the country whose owners breed them merely for pleasure and secondly for the profits more than likely to result in supplying others .vhose fancy takes the same channel. Ornamental breeds and varieties may and often do possess considerable economic value, and some of them undoubtedly could be developed, according to the poultry specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture, into birds having high utility qualities. For example, the Accurate Measurement of America's Net of Roadways Soon to Be Made by Government. Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture. America's far-thing net of roadways Is soon to be measured accurately in terms of mileage, cost, character of construction, improvement work and general condition by the bureau of public roads of tho United Suites Le- pertinent of Agriculture.

Where fowl- are shipped by express, in order to have them reach their destination in the best possible condition, they should be transported in special shipping "coops, which should be substantially built and able to withstand rough handling. Such a co p may be made from waste lumber salvaged from dry-goods boxes or second-hand bullfinch material. Boards more than one-half inch thick should not be used, as they maie the coop too heavy and the express charges excessive. The coop should be nailed together with the supports of the slats or cover on the top, which should be put on with screws or hinges and hooks, so that it may be easily opened. This is important, as the top or cover must be opened each time the coop is used, and if put on with nsils it is soon broken and the coop spoiled. There are standard sizes of -oops which commonly are used for shipping poultry, the dimensions of these containers varying according to the number of fowl to be transported. The following dimensions should be u?ed in constructing the coop : For one hen or cock, 12 inches wide. IS in. hes long, and 24 Inches high ; for two hon or one hen and ovk. 12 inches wide. 24 inches long. a:.d 24 inches high. In preparing for shipment, a small quantity of hay. straw, or dry slvaings should be placed In the bottom of the coop to absorb moisture, and two cv.ps or cans should be provided one for feed and one for water. The cups should be fastened securely to the side walls In opposite comers. Special exhibition wops should be tised by poultry -eltin members in exhibiting fowls at county and school fairs or other exhibitions, or by adult showmen in displaying their champion poultry. Such coops should not be used for shippinc potiltry. but may be guess today within milJions of dollars what the roadways total, in dollars and cents, on the ledger of national assets. Nobody knows how many miles there are where wheel may roll. The strength and the weakness of the nation's transportation arteries likewise are unknown in detail.

Farmer's Bulletin 1221, recently issued by the Department of Agriculture, credits the game breed with eight varieties : Black-Breasted Red, Brown Rdl. Golden Duckwing. Silver Duckwing, Birchen, Red Pyle, White, and Black. The Oriental class Includes two breeds, the Sumatra of which there Is one variety, the Black, end the Malay with one, the Black-Breasted Red.

The legs and toes are slate blue in all varieties except the White-Crested Black in which they are a darker blue, approaching black. The skin is gray or grayish white, which does not recommend the birds for table purposes in this country where the demand is for yellow-skinned fowls. The crest which all Polish carry is characteristic of the breed and adds much to its beauty. The contrast between the white crest and the black body of the White-Crested Black makes this and the number of toes fotir. A number of colors are allowed in the Frizzles, without dividing the breed into separate varieties. These are black, white, red. and bay, the only requirement being that each bird shall be a solid color unmixed with any others. Shown In pens the birds, male and female, shall be of the same color. Frizzles are not often seen In this country, and are kept only on ttccount of their unusual appearance. They have no particular qualities to recommend them over normally feathered fowls.

Real Rest Depends Largely Upon the Depth of Your Sleep A warning to "light" or "poor" sleepers The deeper and sounder you sleep the better you feel. Five hours sound refreshing sleep does you more actual good than ten hours restless, disturbed sleep. This is because the final conversion of food into vital tissue and nerve cells goes on more rapidly when the physical and mental forces are at rest. You can't get sound, refreshing sleep if your nerves are agitated with tea or coffee. Both these drinks contain caffeine, which is sometimes very irritating to the brain and nervous system. If you want to know the joy, vigor and stamina that comes to the person who gets sound, healthful sleep, why not stop taking tea or coffee for a while, and drink delicious, invigorating Postum instead. Thousands of people everywhere have found that this was the only thing they needed in order to bring about these very happy results. Order Postum from your grocer today. Drink this delightful cereal beverage of coffee-like flavor, for a week. Perhaps, like thousands of others, youll never be willing to go back to tea or coffee.

If it is impossible to obtain netting, however, laths may be used, but the strips should be placed ; about inches apart, to afford as much opportunity as possible to see the birds. The coop should be made in the form of a 2-foot cule. and will accommodate one mature bird or a pair of chickens. If more than this are to be exhibited together the coop ehould be made larger in proportion to the number of fowls it is to accommodate. Every poultry-club member or other fowl fancier, who intends to exhibit birds, should construct one or more exhibition coops of this type, according to the number of specimens he intends to exhibit. Birds can be trained and conditioned In these coops before the exhibition, and after becoming accustomed to them they will appear to better advantage when being Judged. Furthermore, when birds are shown in. coops of this kind that are uniform to size arid type, not only is the ap- pearance of the showroom improved, but the Individual exhibit is more attractive.

This further emphasizes the necessity of feeding a mash containing meat scrap or some feed of this kind.

These same men agreed that the principal disadvantage of motortrucks To Overcome Acid in Feed Mixtures Necessary to Supply Meat Scrap or Something Similar Fresh Milk Will Help. Every person who keeps poultry is sure to be Impressed sooner or later by the Importance of feeding well-balanced rations, especially for the production of eggs. Ordinarily a balanced ration means a ratios that has the proportions of carbohydrates, protein and fat that have been found by experience to produce the best results, but new things are being discovered that need to be given consideration In balancing a ration. For Instance, It Is now thought that It may be well to bar a balance between the acid and Alkaline feeds and that there Is a pos- Is poor roads. For about eight weeks of the year, mud or snow is so bad that trucks cannot well be nsed. When all-the-year good roads are established, agricultural use of motortrucks will he universal. Variety of Nutritious Fooa. See that the fowls have a variety of nutritious food that will not only supply the elements that are needed to keep them healthy and vigorous, but also the elements that are needed to make eggs. Motortrucks Involve problems new to highways. Their tremendous loads utterly destroy roads which under horse-drawn vehicles were permanent. 5- X, j. ' 'ilia ma im .... i SMDk i - i ts-UfcjJVa V 4 V'
