WINTER CULLING OF - - SO ME BIRDS NEEDED " '.'Most' ol the strains o£ poultry on Pennsylvania farms arc' bred' for "satisfactory egg production but there 'are"-likely to be individual hens in the flocks which do not have the normal egg temperament. Culling is ·the only-course for these birds. ' ···Some'hens may -have on inherited factor called "inter pause" which may cause them to molt for no apparent reason.: If .these, molting birds do not sKow muclVpast-productton -by.".bleached :beakii and. Kli;mK-s, they should" lie' riiiif keled' \vlfen they are in satisfactory marketing condition. . .Internal parisites ma yalso .keep V-ying birds "but of satisfactory'pro- duction". Worming' treatments may help to get-the birds'^ack into production · but in late winter or cnrly. .spring the price of-cggs.may be t ". jng. its seasonal .spring .drop.- Poulr : trymen often find it .more profitable .to cull, these :flocks rigidly, and market the hens for meat beforc/the price -o£..fowls. drops". laterT in : the season.'

His disposition is ;not improved by having to- plow in ;or work over or, around- these gutters later. · ·', : ..-,'. .·'.v^ · The gullies arc -not 'thVonly loss Every time muddy .water runs off .a field a lot of good soil, goes with it. It may not be missed at flrst, bu it can never be replaced. 'An inch of soil lost from an.'acrov.means rabout 150 tons." If .the'proccss continues the surface soil soon gets'too .shallow for profitable farming. " ; Some soil loss is inevitable if land ;is to be plowed. Washing and gully ,ing can be. reduced, however, .to a 'point where Ithey amount ' t o very "little.

One of the times that this should bo violated Is when your contract would bo' beaten If some one opponent happened to hold three to the queen. In that event, . it can sometimes be better to take a first round Bncsso which loses, but leaves a trump In the dummy \o guard against the defenders picking off too many loscra In a ^articular ault.. : " . ..

On the^sccond round of hearts £ost gave a spade-signal and, as t was not safe to start the diamonds with the adverse trump out, a switch was made to apades when .ho heart Q was cashed. Had ihcso declarers tried the 'diamonds Before forcing out the heart Q, West would have trumped the second round and started on spades. The player who made the 'contract, after cashing the club i A, finessed the heart 10, with the idea In mind that If the finesse lost, which It might, he would lose only ' two spades while he still retained one trump In dummy. When the finesse lost, West continued with clubs, as East had received no opportunity to request the switch. · * · Tomorrow's Problem + K Q 3 4 .

Simple Rules Help Most automobile drivers lay the fault for skidding on the ice or snow or wet or oily roads or on loose Bravel. But these arc only alibis. Try these suggestions made by the National Sufety Council: 1. On any slippery roadway, travel at a moderate speed with extreme caution. 2. Reduce speed slowly; always slow down before you wish to stop 1 turn. 3. Keep brakes adjusted and equalized. Never slam them on suddenly under bad road conditions. 1. Tires grip the road better if inflated moderately; hard tires skid more easily, 5. Chains may help to stop « skid II you drive with care; but chains cannot stop skidding' if you drive recklessly. 6.--Avoid wet or icy car rails; cross at a wide angle. 7. Keep out of ruts in mud, or ice, or snow. 8. If you do skid do not instantly slam on the brakes in a panic. Release the throttle but leave cluth en- gogod so that the cnRine will help to slow your car. Touch brakes lightly, alternately exert a little pressure and.release them and turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. Stonewall Brlgadcman Dies.
