THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1956 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-NINE The Hopeful Hen Persistent Biddy Spends Month on Single Egg By I,EE HANKS Hardtn Correspondent HARDIN — No member of the animal kingdom Is so persistent as a sitting hen. She has no calendar and no way of counting time, so she just keeps on pegging away, often staying on the job for months, if undisturbed. And this brings up the oft-discussed question of the proper ap- pelation for a broody hen. Should she be called a setUng hen or a sitting hen. English, "as she is spoke,'* might lean toward the former, but authoritative English would embrace the latter. It seems that you "set" a hen and she "sits." Be that, as it may, Marguerite Arnold of Golden Eagle has a broody hen that has escaped capture and incarceration in the hen Jail for the cooling off period. This bird has been sitting on one egg, patiently and hopefully, for two months or more. She chose to do her nesting beneath a brooder house where she enters through a small hole. For all the good she has contributed to the Arnold excheqer she might as well have been popped Into the pot last winter. An interesting sidelight t? the career of the hopeful hen has been the feud she has carried on all summer with one member of the young flock that calls the brooder house his home. This bird was born to adventure. He early developed a habit of slipping out the door when it was opened for the bringing in of feed and water. Each time he did this, the setting hen emerged and tried to murder him. Miraculously he survived so the battle went on and on. Ixjng since the young chickens have been turned on the range. Every member of the hundred odd flock may pass safely by the lookout hole of Mrs. Hen, but let her pet peeve stroll past and she pops out with a squawk and the chase begins. And young Mr. Chicken has de veloped into something of a freak, himself. He has grown into an assortment of long legs, long neck, and small head and body. He looks like a cross between a road runner and a game chicken. A standout in a flock of orthodox birds, he has become the fleetest thing on two legs around the farm. Since he was two weeks of age he has never been caught. All of which shows that there can be a shade of humor even in HIP humdrum life of carrying Eldrod ELDRED. — Mr. and Mrs. Romaine Tate and family of Lomax spent the weekend here with relatives and were dinner guests Sunday of Mrs. Tate's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Holford. Joining them at dinner Sunday were Mr. and Mrs. Glen Jones am' son, Keith, .and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Holford and family of Eldred.

Wilbur and Fred Schroeder spent the weekend at Decatur with their brother, Leslie Schroeder, Jericho, Biblical town 15 miles northeast of Jerusalem, is 3,500 feet lower than the Holy city and 840 feet above sea level. on the work of a farm. And the moral is that persistency is not alone a human trait. Who knows?—A close friend of this hen may slip into the covert of this sitting hen some day and lay a fresh egg. Then she might horome a mother.
