Ttio Kltnore Shops to be Pat at Hlnc Enrth City—Alffonii 1,1 tie to g<> to Belle Plnliui Instead of 'i'ainn. Blue Earth is now getting ready to be the main division point on the north lines of the Northwestern railroad system. They already have a rounfl house, machine shops, etc.—in thuii- minds. This is the way the Post figures it out: They are constructing one of the finest and moat substantial road beds that haye been built in this or any other section of the west. They have doubled the side track citpacity of nil the stations between hero and Belle Plaine, Iowa. It is given the uppeiir- ance of being built for heavy truffle ind lots of it. It seems certain that it is the intention of the company to send much of the Dakota passenger and Yeight traffic over this road. W<- are ibout the right distance from Uulle rMnine for either a passenger or freight, division, or both. It being at the unction of the two roads thtit, though separately managed, arc prnctically one great system, would naturally seem a fitting place for a division." The Belle Plaine Herald has an item )f local inl.orent in this connection: We are informed by the best author-j ty that the Chicago & North western intend to run a line from Gladbrook over .o the now line of road now being built rom Belle Plaine to Blue Earth in order to save the hill between Tama anil Jladbrook and will run all through rains from the North town Division to Belle Plaine instead of Tuna a. The ame authority also says that an engine can pull ten more loads over this routn which will be a pood saving to the company; further, that the shops at Slmore, Minn., will be moved to Blue Carth at once and all traffic from the lorth will come over the new line and Blue Earth will be the end of the Belle Plaine division of the new road.

They have over half a million feet of lumber in their yard at this place, the largest stock ever brought to Algona. Having bought the Algona Milling Co.'s coal busfness at the Northwestern depot, they secured the services of A. H.

Although the hen has no teeth and cannot chew its food, there is the same necessity, and possibly greater, for it to eat slowly that there is for animals that depend on mastication to fit food for digestion. The hen is obliged to swallow grain wh-ole, as it has no way to break it up before it enters the gizzard. There it is ground among the pebbles which will always be found in a healthy bird's gizzard, which is a collection of extremeJy powerful muscles. The gizzard also furnishes a most effective digestive agent called ingluvin, and which has several times as much digestive power as pepsin prepared from the stomach of the calf or the pig. Many people whose digestion is weak prefer ingluvin to pepsin to aid the change of their food into blood and fles'h. So long as food comes to the fowl's stomach only moderately fast there is not much, danger that the stomach will be crop bound. Instinct teaches the hen to scratch while she is eating. She will do so if placed before a heap of whole grain, and also, if she has chicks, stop eating long enough to cluck and call them to it. It is not often that fowl become crop bound on grain unless cut clover is also largely eaten at the same time. The weight and solidity of the grain makes something for the gizzard to work on, and the food has solidity enough to be forced through. Hence cut clover should form only a very s.mall part of a fowl's ration. Neither sJiould soft food be fed long as an exclusive diet. It also does not give the stomach enough to do, and thus weakens that organ from inaction. This is as often as any other the cause of fowls becoming crop bound. It is most common in fowls that have become very fat from high feeding, and which take but little exercise.—American Cultivator. NOTES FOR BEEKEEPERS. Give a strong colony plenty of entrance room. Sulphur will destroy the moth larvae in old combs. Use foundations to control the number of drones. With plenty of stores brood rearing goes on rapidly. An apiary is best located on the south or east side of a slope. Worthless queens may be detected by the broods they produce. Bees should not be allowed to become entirely destitute of honey. We cannot expect straight combs to be built in hives that are> not plumb. Honey should never be heated to the boiling point; it destroys the flavor. Early in the spring is one of thevery best times for moving the bees. Th« combs then are light and the colony the smallest of any time of the year. If the hives are resting directly on the ground it will produce dampness, which is against the best welfare of the bees at this- time.—St. Louis Ee public. SERVES TWO PURPOSES. A Hotbed In the Spring and a Sunny Scratching Place for Fowl* tn Winter. Th« cut showa a hotbed that is built against the south side of the poultry house, serving all through the winter a* a gunny scratching place for the HOTBED AB A POULTRY RUN. fowls. These are shut out at the approach of sprlngand the hotbed started. About the time th* plants are started the fowls will be getting out upon the ground, while all through the deep snows of winter tlhey will have an exceedingly sunny space to run in. Make the hotbed large enough to give sufficient scratching space. The room can well be utilized with early plants in the spring.—American Agriculturist. Average Oo»t of Experiments in feeding and in computing the value of eggs, show that if no estimate is made for labor, one dozen eggs can be produced at a cost of about six cents for food, or about half a cent per egg. If all of the food allowed to hens were converted into eggs the profit of a dozen eggs would be large, even when pricea are very low, but much depends on whether the hen? convert the food into eggs, flesh,, or support of their bodies. It» ft fact demonstrated, bow- ever, that when ft dozen eggs are marketed they carry from the farm but little of the nutritious elements of the soil in proportion to their value In market, and on that ficcount they are as prpfltable a» anything that oa» be produced on the-f arm,—Poultry Keeper, TWO house? to re«Jt.
