Judge McKenna went 'to California from Philadelphia in 1855 as a mere child, and was .educated In the common schools, Hla collegiate course was taken in St. Augustine college, Benlcla, Cal., and only one year after reaching his majority he was admitted to * the bar.

He is a practical farmer himself and la the owner and operator of one of the prettiest bits of form land/ in the we»t. His farm is near Ames.

After e, parfod or reUre»«sit h» was aijiiht eJ^tvcl to* tin* f»*>*(t!ng; of Poultry. Two things mast be carefu?ly con- nldered in winter feeding, flrst to attain the highest degree of health In the fowl and second, to obtain the largest number of eggs without result- Ing in injury to the hen. / »• I do not approvd of using many of the various brands of poultry powders advertised to: Increase egg production, as many of theta positively result In permanent injury to the hen, and from experience I have observed that a large per cent of the egga are not fertile. During Incubation much loss is thus incurred. I much prefer to increase egg production by special diet and at the same time strengthen and build up the constitution of the fowl, For a morning meal I give a hot mash composed of shorts mixed in hot' milk and water* and three times a week add vegetables, potatoes, turnips, carrots, cabbage, etc. I also drop in a fed pepper to fifteen fowls once in three .or four days. The latter not only makea the meal more palatable" but is stimulating and increases animal warmth. The morning meal is girtn at 8 o'clock and Is distributed in such a manner that every fowl will have a proper allowance. . I water at it or 12 o'clock and give the fowls a good.dust or ash bath. This bath brightens the feathers, giving them a fresh glossy appearance, adding much to the luster of the plumage, while In. the aahea many hard substances will be found that will aid In digesting hard food. I frequently scatter shelled corn and oats with the ashoa or d.ust and mix thoroughly, thus furnishing the fowls exercise in scratching out the grain. "When confined in close quarters I find It advantageous to mix 'corn with hay chaff and allow them to pick it out. Now, besides the exercise, wo get a nlc.o dry litter for the floor. The evening meal, which -Is given at 4 : o'clock, consists chiefly of whole corn, generally furnished on the ear. Corn is very heating and will increase the animal heat during the long winter nights. A good, dry, well-ventilated Chouse should be provided, banked up well at' the back, if necessary to keep out the cold north and west winds. Clean often. Don't let your "fowl house be a foul house." Watch for lice. If any appear I remove the fowls, close up the house very tight and bunTa liberal amount of sulphur— usually' one application is sufficient — and, after carefully ventilating, the building is ready for'occu- pancy again. A hen will not lay well if bothered by lice. It has been my experience that following the above wpuld_flll.tho egglbasket. _____ i___^ _____ Edwin E. Sedwick. Mercer County, 111. . When' Eggs .Hutch ISqut. • The reports of experiments by Mad-' ame Dleudonne upon the effect of cold upon the incubation of eggs, published by the French Minister of .Agriculture, is reported at considerable length. It was found that fowls. hatch larger and stronger durlng-the -months - of -February, March aud April . than during warm months of June, July and August.' It was also found that eggs .from hene which were at liberty, "hatched better than those which were confined. In test made' with the incubator It was found that eggs' which were repeatedly warmed and cooled hatched much better than those which were kept at a warm temperature all the time. In one experiment the eggs were cooled by exposing them to the air for one and___onerhalf . hours.:dally_:during_the, whole ' period of incubation. This treatment .retarded the period of incubation three days, The eggs became. quite cold and it required about twplve hours to bring .them up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of incubation. In this experiment thirteen out of sixteen eggs hatched strong, .vigorous chickens, The incubator had previously been used with unsatisfactory results. From the second experiment }t was inferred that the gradual heating of the eggs was as essential as the process of cooling. Twenty-five eggs- which had been laid on Very warm days were placed in the incubator and exposed to the air as in the preceding case. The. temperature was such that the eggs were warmed up to .104 degrees in two or. three hours. This temperature was maintained until the brood was 'hatched. The chickens pierced the shell, but they were ep weak that they died before, leaving the eggs. It was found that the eggs upon which a fowl is sitting are not all of the same temperature, those on the outside being cooler than the ones in the center. Eggs from.China.-^"Fresh Eggs from China" is a sign in the .windows of the Chinese stores in Chicago. Most of these eggs are duck eggs, and about 30,000 of them have Chicago during* the last three weeks. Each egg is wrapped in a mass of black mud that retains Us putty-like consistency for months, even when exposed to the air. They come in boxea holding twenty<five ; of a "Chinamen's dozenr which is ten. Everything that comes from China la purchased by tens. The eggs are said to be as fresh &a if laid yesterday. Peeling the coating from them, the faint blue tint of the shell is disclosed. —Ex. • ' •• . • - ' ' ; Excessive lit prevents egg produc^ lion. : ' There is no easy road to wealth, even la the poultry business. !£ the ground around the poultry bouse door gets muddy in soft weather, tfer®w «o«! unites for a' tew yards from |t, «o tiut hena will fc*ye dry fell ol ibe tn<Jnnt*i<»«~M"»nof«ftnrir<fr On Ms>»t.

Prof. Hasklns of Chicago was present and spoke on educating the children on etwiological lines; He represents ths Colombia College of Good Citizenship. P. D. Voris epoke on the cultivation of the apple orchard for the first five yeara. Lay off the ground and plant the trees by November, eettlng them 20 of 40 feet apart. Give MInkler, Northern Spy and the like wider space than fruit like Grimes' Golden. Plant at a good depth, two or three Inches deeper than they stood in the nursery. If the weather in the fall is not right, then plant as early in the spring as possible. Protect the trees against rabbits by wrapping the trees. Another pest to be guarded against is the borer. Dig «hem out with a knife or e wire. They are worse than rabbits, because they will follow an orchard as long as it lives, while the rabbits will not trouble a tree after Its first five years of growth. In preparing the ground, give it good culture. Trim the trees very little. .Keep the caterpillars and other worms well picked off. Corn is a better-crop to plant in an orchard than any other, because it will protect the trees to some extent. The corn will also fiirnlsh food to some Insects that' would feed on the leaves of the fruit trees, were the corn not there. It is a mistake to leave orchards in grass, for It will attract insectSj which, their food failing, •%Ul take to the trees. This has been mwejxpcrience.,. Mr. Phillips—The gentleman speaks of'removing in the spring the wrapping that protected the trees in the winter. Recently I read in a paper an article advocating leaving on the wrapping as a partial protection in the summer. I leave mine on all summer. ... Mr. Vorls—If you leave them on they afford a great retreat for the borers. Mr. Morris—I do not believe ' an orchard, or any rabbits. I paint my trees with paint containing among other things -white lead, the whole mixed with fish oil. We also put on coal oil. We begin with one or two-year-old trees In the nursury, and we have no trouble with anything. We use'eaoh seasqn about 25 pounds of* white lead. This we mix with one gallon of ilnseed oil and dilute the whole with five gallons of coal oil. Mr. Augustine—I think we should be careful (how we recommend painting trees, for we may make some fellow lose his orchard. As to wrapping, I leave the paper on for three years. Mr. :Morrlll—I can't understand why some men can put coal oil*on their trees and have" them" survive^when other men have tried it and lost their entire orchards. . Men in my state have tried H.,and lost their trees. It may do well for some, but it is not a safe thing to recommend for all. There have been made in our state some experiments along this line. Some of the orchards have survived, but others have died. J. H. Hale of Connecticut, a veteran orchardist, has a. formula that foe recommends and uses_wit& good-results. Other men have taken that formula and had ruinous results from it. One man lost 40 acres of trees by it. So there must be something in conditions that makes the difference. I think that a tree will stand vegetable oils, such as linseed oil, but not mineral oils, like coal oil. I would not use mineral oils on my trees for a thousand dollars. H. M. Dunlap read a paper on cold storage and cool storage. Hand pick the apples carefully. It is important that packing" should ber attended^ to^at once. When apples need sorting 'they need selling. Cool storage Is of more Importance to the apple grower than is cold,storage, for It. Is within reach of all. The cellar for cool storage should be eo-'fixed that it can be ventilated easily and quickly, letting in cold air when the temperature in the cellar gets too high. A cellar should be so ceiled up that the temperature will not he-affected by the rooms-above it. We ventilate entirely for the sake of lowering the temperature, and therefore as soon, as .the air is cool enough we must shut-up the cellar, so the cool air will not get out and warm air get in in its place, by a change of temperature on the outside. Gold storage, on the other hand, la of great Importance' to the commercial orchardist. Avoid Too Much Grain Raising.— During the past few dry seasons the farmers have plowed up the low pasture land and there are many 160-acre farms in this section that do not have more pasture than will suffice for two or three cows and -the calves are sent to the butcher's blrick as early as possible, as there is no room to keep them during the summer months. This move has been detrimental in many ways.' First, it ;has caused a large increase In the surplus grain used, it has cut down the home consumption of grain, still further glutting the markets, and It has put many farms in bad shape for a wet season, when .much of this ground : will not grow even grass. To use a homely jaxpreasiQn A ,.*'It Is^best not to carry all your eggs In one basket." , The time has gone by'when grain 1 raising will, one year with another, prove successful; Just as old-fashioned business methods have given way to newer and more modern means, BO must the farmer watch for and guard against waste and unprofitable crops, There is no royal road to riches, but care and judgment will help to keep the wolf from the door and lay by a nest egg lor old' age and misfortune'.—Macaoa Journal a*.)
