Corbct Club Growing strong, healthy baby chick Is the most important task of a poultry man, Mrs. J. 13. Sione, poultry demonstrator, told group of home demonstration women at tho home of Mrs. C. E. Dsborne Tuesday afternoon, Jan Feed and water should be In :ho brooder house when the chicks arrive. A good practice to follow and one that will help to start the chicks eating and drinking, Is to dip the beaks In a little buttermilk or water as they are bo- Ing placed In tho brooder house Tho feed must contain the ncces sary ingredients to Insure proper development. For this reason a good starter mash Is recommend cd. The mash should be left be. fore the chicks. Grit and oyster shell of chick slzo should be kept in hoppers for the chicks when they want it. A good supply of green feet should be obtainable at all times during the growing period. Water Is a very Important par of the chicks' diet and shouli always be supplied fresh severa times a day. If tho water Is clean and pure enough for hu man consumption, then there is no need for adding any kind o disinfectant or tonic to tho water. Skim milk is excellent for chicks and should be supplied when available. Milk should never bo fed in metal containers. At tho ago of six weeks the cockerels and pullets should be separated. Tho cockerels shoulc be left in the brooder houso anc finished for market. The grow ing pulleta should be placed on clean range and supplied with green feed and shade. Pullets on range should bo given free choice of growing mash and all the grain they can consume. Tho pul lets should be left on the range until they are ready to lay then they should be transferred to a laying house. Quite often the poultryman finds his pullets ma turing too rapidly. In a case o this kind the protein content o the mash should be reduced. I is important that the pullets have a good layer of reserve fat a the tlmo she comes into lay. Mrs. Slonc continued by saying that a full egg basket should be tho aim of every poultry raise regardless of the size of the flock Inasmuch as eggs constitute the principal source of income from poultry. To secure high produc tion in the late summer, fall anc winter It is absolutely necessar; that the hens bo properly fed. A hen eats because she Is hungry and a good management practlc Is to keep ,her hungry and eating Feed serves two purposes. (!' For body maintenance, (2) ti manufacture eggs. Approximately 75 per cent of the food con sumed by chickens when llbera feeding methods are practiced, I utilized by the bird for body maintenance. Consequently if hen gets only half of the feei she would normally eat If given an opportunity, she will produc few if any eggs. The whole egg contains about 13 per cent pro teln, 11 per cent fat, 11 pe cent mineral and 65 per cen water. The hen's body consists o about 22 per enet protein, 17 pe cent fat, 4 per cent mineral anc 56 per cent water. To feed nothing but whol grain Is one of the common mis takes in poultry feeding. Grain are used by hens to produce hea energy fat and yolk of the egg A complete ration must therefor Contain into only whole grain bu mill feed, animal protein, gree' succulent feed and mineral water The omission of any on« of these Is likely to result in lower eg production.

Loo VDanlel has much better offices t the capItol than James V. Ailed had at the start of his ad- nlnlstratlon and all other govor- ors of Texas had throughout leir terms. When Allred became governor our years ago the executive of- Ices were on the first floor at lie right of the main entrance to he capitol. They comprised rather a dlngy- ooklng suite of two private of- ices, an ante-room where vlsltoi's waited In uncomfortable stralght- ackcd chairs and several smaller ooms for stenographers and lorks. A suite on the second floor, artly over tho rooms on tho first loor and connected with It by a winding stair, years previously md been used for various pur- >oscs by goVernqrs but subse- uently virtually abandoned, A largo reception room that ince had been beautifully fur- ilshcd had fallen Into gloom and lecay. The hangings at great windows were full of moth and mouse holes and the upholstery of chairs and divans had been vorn out. Governor Allred changed this. He asked the board of control ixnd tho legislature to re-furnish ho second floor suite and outfit t as was Intended originally. t was done at a cost of several housand dollars. Now the reception room, enter ed at the front through two glass-paned doors on which the state seal is etched, has an' atmosphere of rich dignity. On the floor Is a thick red carpet while golden draperies hang at the 15-foct windows. Tho walls and celling aro painted blue, while the old-fashioned chairs and a settee are upholstered In :old, red and blue. ______ ger, Mrs. George Baum, and Na- home grown grains, GOVERNOR O'DANIEL HAS MUCH BETTER OFFICES THAN PREVIOUS OCCUPANTS OF OFFICE HAVE HAD In the center Is an antique marble-topped table and one one wall are two long mirrors. At one end of the chamber Is a bronze bust of Vlco-Presldent Garner. A tiny connection hall lends to tho office of tho governor's private secretary, which is fur- Tilshed with two fine hardwood desks a number of wooden chairs and a bookcase, Windows In this office are shaded with Venetian blinds while the drapes are royal blue and gold In color. Tho governor's private office, the same slzo as and adjoining that of his secretary, Impresses with its quietltudo, because, for some reason, no sound ever seems to come from without. Tho color scheme In this office Is light cream for the walls, blue and gold draperies at the windows and very dark red for the carpet, chairs and a divan aro upholstered In blue leather. The divan, seven feet long, Is at one end and the governor's mahogany desk at the other. The chair at tho desk Is swivel type and the deep upholstery also Is with blue leather. At tho governor's elbow is a little stand for anything ho wishes to keep on It, for example, telephones or a pitcher of water. In a corner nearby Is a bookcase, specially constructed for the spot by the statchousc carpenter. It's all much better arranged and much hansomcr than tho suite downstairs which Allred used for about two years. When the governor moved out of tho offices on the first floor the private one was taken over by Secretary of State Edward Clark, but the ones occupied by stenographers and clerks were retained for that purpose. The whole plan may bo changed by any governor.

HILLOCK, Bose Originator. ARLINGTON, Jan. 26.— (IP)— The first and constant consideration the first summer after a rose bed or garden has been planted should be the proper reestablishing of the plants. No stimulating fertilizers should be applied. Stimulation Insures soft wood and soft foliage, Inviting disaster if adverse conditions arise. In tho extreme north, where the rose winter—kills frequently, some justification exists for stimulation upon the theory that all possible should be gotten out of the plant before winter sets it. The Southwest Is another matter. Hero, in addition to other virtues, reasonable longevity is desired and sought. The first requirement of a worthwhile rose In the Southwest Is an ability to recover In full from the effects of a late spring freeze. At times when spring comes In winter, and winter roars back with fury 'In springtime, It is just too bad for a rose plant that has spent the previous summer on a hilarious jag of stimulating fertilizers. Rose wood of the finest texture Is none too good under such punishment. The second requirement of a good rose In tho Southwest is a foliage able to function In reasonable degree In heat. Stimulation, the handmaiden to adversity, produces a soft foliage with reduced resistance to damage by heat. The rose should be stimulated In tho Southwest only under peculiar circumstances and per- scrlptlon will be given later. Roses respond quickly to cultivation after every rain and every watering during the spring and summer. It Is not wise to water a rose garden In early spring If there IB rainfall every week or ten days, but should be watered only when a rain is overdue. They should then be watered heavily, the soil being thoroughly soaked. No benefit can arlso from wetting the foliage and black-spot may thereby be aided.

Sell It Quick Through Want Ads. sulpjiur are beneficial as black- spot deterrents If used before rains. They should, however, bo discontinued during hot, dry weather as blackspot is not active and the sprays accomplish noth. Ing beyond burning the foliage at a time when it usually has about all the heat It can stand. Aphlds (green Hoc), which appear for a short time In the spring, should be destroyed by a contact spray, such as Black Lea: "40". The aphlds must be hit by the spray. The eggs are nol destroyed. Spraying should therefore be repeated three or four days later. A spray from thl nozzle of tho hose to sweop them from the plants Is beneficial If no contact spray Is available. Vast numbers of newly planted roses are destroyed during the first summer after planting through unwise cutting. The extent to which the roo 1 system is re-established Is direct ly dependent upon the volume of the foliage. If the foliage Is re moved from a plant as rapidly ns it is developed and carried In to tho house, the plant Is left without adequate means of taking required food elements from tho air and is kept without an adequate digestive organ. No rose plant, crippled through transplanting, ever got well through having Its stomach used to decorate a mantel. Every newly planted rose should be permitted to retain all of Its follago blooms until August. Under normal circumstances It should have developed to such extent, root and branch by August that the fall production will be In such volume as to permit cutting without unwise defoliation that would have been possible had the plant been cut hard all summer with' attendant, constant defoliation. No foliage, no roses. Townsend Meeting. There will bo a Townsend mooing at the court houso Friday afternoon, Jan. 27. Come one, como all. Wo have an election of officers, so wo need your appearance.
