Now, before (lie young pullets are moved into the house, a litlle repair work will save time In cure of the (lock later on she snid. ' A cement floor in place of a dirt lloor Is not a luxury, but a saver in time and labor and an aid in con- I railing disease, she pointed out. Although a dirt lloor may lie nil right she said, it is usually damp, making' an Menl place for genus to develop and grow. A properly cnnslrucled cement floor, the home demonstration agent said, will not sweat or be damp Coarse gravel or line rock should be used lo (ill or raise the floor about 4 Inches above the surrounding (,'i'omul level, mid tin's gravel lamp- ed down thoroughly and covered with about 1 ». to 2 Indies at cement Eight inches of roost spnce should be allowed per bird, nccorclini; to Miss Colcnmn. Small poles or 2 by 2's with the edges slightly rounded make satisfactory roosts. They should be placed 1C inches apart , from center, to center, and should be level and not sloping, if drop- pine boards are used, (hey should te 30 inches from the floor and the roosis C Inches above tiic droppings boards.

The fact that plants can bo grown without humus, In tanks of nutrient solution, docs not incnn thai humus can be dispensed with in soil. Every gardener knows the pleasure he feels In working with a black soil, spongy In texture, which never cakes or cracks, which allows the spade and hoe to pass through it easily, and remains moist like a sponge after excess walcr has quickly drained away. These arc fill good qualities, bul they are not all thai come from abundant humus content. Humus plays on important part in the chemical reactions which lake place in the soil. It helps unlock from clay, the mineral part of soil, elements which the plants nceil bul cannot get without Hie aid of humus. Constant renewal and building u p of humus content should be carried on and one of the best ways to do this is by making a compost pile, through which all planl debris ami other organic waste matter may be transformed into humus. Place HID composl pile in a secluded corner. Shrubs may be used lo shield it from view.' The plant material lo be decomposed should be put down in layers, with thin layers of soil between. A few iinndfuls of lime and complete plantfood should be sprinkled in the plant material as il is put on the piles. A small quantity of decayed m.iterinl or manure scattered HirouKh the pile will baslcn dcca3'. Tlie compost pile should not be allowed to dry out. I'CNCC OFF A PIECE OF 1 YOUR. BACKYARD IQ'XIO' OR.

Young birds mny be cninird but the texture mid flavor of Ihc meal, arc Allow (he composted material (o decompose quite thoroughly before usitif it. The use of complete planKood increases the humus conlent of Die soil, since it encourages Ihc growth of both the top and llio root system of plants. A certain percentage of the root system decays each year. This decomposed vegetable 'mailer becomes a part ot (tie soil. Experiments have shown lhal a considerable percentage of humus is added (o the soil in this way. Decoy tened if of compost will, be has- a tumblerful of bnlnnceJ plant food is scattered over each layer ot composl a foot thick and 10 feet .sruiurc.
