Let a thorough-going fancier moVe into a tnunlty which has never before aspired to anything higher 1h poul- culture than raising the common barn-yard fowl, and it will not be many months until a man here, a boy there, and a woman over yonder will be asking the price of eggs and fowls, and Inquiring for the address of a good poultry paper, and seeking 1 information in general. Prom these, others will catch the inspiration until the interest will have become general, and if they can be induced to subscribe to a good paper, the result will be that many will become thorough fanciers. The chicken fever is also a peculiar thing inasmuch that if it once gets a hold on a man, it will be impossible for him to leave it altogether. He may enter the pulpit, law, politics or any other vocation in life, yet the love for the fancy will cling to him yet, and on the back-yard or on the expensively fitted up farm yard you will find a pen of prize fowl— his pets. This love clings to him because it is a most fascinating persuit. Breeding fowle present so many dlfllcult problems for solution, so many possibilities, yet so many disappointments also, that a man t>f a strong and determined mind will stick to it because he will not give up the pursuit until he has attained perfection. But the nearer we attain unto perfection, the further it moves from WHAf WOMEN Afc& DbfNtt, If the word "boom" wer*e not in ex- stence now it would be hard to find a s-ord to fittingly take its place.

A trout of the Lochleven species weighing 11% pounds and measuring us. That which a few years back was a simple fault is now an eye-sore fault. If it were possible to breed a perfect fowl the ranks of the fancy would thin out in a hurry. With no possibility of progress in the future, all interest in the present would soon die out. We need not go far to prove this statement. The varieties which are the hardest to breed to standard, have the greatest number of enthusiastic admirers and most valiant champions. The chicken fever sometimes causes very strange hallucinations of the mind and the victim often imagines that the poultry business is the bonanza which many have sought and few found, that it ie a child's work with a railroad king's pay. With a piece of paper and pencil he can quickly prove with the accuracy which attends all mathematized deductions, that there is it.

Rye sown the previous autumn is the earliest green feed to be had in the spring. It cahnot be fed over ten days, as it grows rapidly woody. Wheat can follow rye, and can be fed for fourteen days. After cutting the rye and wheat the land can be planted to corn. Wheat can be followed by clover and grass, or by clover alone, sown the year previous. The first annual crops from which green feed can be secured are Canada peas and oats, or vetch and oats. These should be sown as early as possible in the spring. The peas or vetch should be harrowed or lightly plowed to a depth of three or four inches and the oats lightly harrowed in. Either combination makes a most excellent green feed, and by planting several lots about two weeks apart, green feed can be secured during the entire month of July. The vetch seed is rather more costly than the peas. The only objection to Canada peas is their tendency to lodge. Some prefer the champion of England or black-eyed marrowfat on this account. For green feed during the month of August the barnyard millet (Panicumcrus galli) is to be recommended. This millet was imported from northern Japan. The wild species growing in this country is the common barnyard grass. The cultivated species grows upright from five to seven feet tall, and yields from twelve to twenty tons of green material per acre. Animals eat it with avidity. It makes also very good hay, but, being coarser than the common millet, there is difficulty in curing it. It needs plenty of moisture to produce maximum yields, and will not stand a drought as well as corn. Medium green soja beans sown in drills two and one- half feet apart about May 30 will grow four feet tall and furnish a green fodder rich in protein from August 20 to September 15. Corn planted May 20 will furnish green fodder from August 25 to September 20. It can be fed in connection with soja beans, one half of each,- to excellent advantage, and furnishes a properly balanced ration. Land from which peas and oats have been removed by July 15 can be seeded at once with Hungarian grass, and will yield green food from September 20 to October 5, the balance, if any, to be ttfl Pn6et>e Fli&nef Sf Sre., fiiftdi & fecefifc tfift, dating she shot four bfowfi beara find bite cin namon.

Speaking of the enforcement of tho Sabbath law In New York, Acting Inspector Brooks said: "There was never ' a time until recently when the tenderloin could not be counted on for a big batch of arrests and police cases of all kinds. With the saloons closed crime decreases, and naturally arrests are fewer." In a recent speech before the English Army Temperance association Lord Wolseiey made this striking statement: "There are yet some battles to be fought, some great enemies to be encountered by the United Kingdom, but the most pressing enemy at present is drink. It kills more than all our newest weapons of warfare, and not only destroys the body, but the mind, and soul also." leet 7 inches in length and 16% inches girth, was recently taken in Kingdom Loch.

The Plymouth Rock suits me best because it is a general purpose fowl being large in size and a good layer. It matures early. Our poultry house is warm and ie always kept free from filth and vermin. In winter we feed mostly on corn, oats and wheat. In summer we feed a mixture of shorts and bran, mixed and wet, but made very stiff. We have no particular method. Sometimes we get good prices for what we have to sell, but usually, as we sell in the local markets, we do pot get high prices, unless we sell for breeding purposes. We get eggs nearly every day in the year. I have had the cholera in my flock, I do not know whether it was caused by lice or not. One or two ye_ars ago I lost nearly my whole flock, i nave lost a good many by minks and weasels, I have good success in raising broods and usually raise all I get hatched. I feed at first on hard-boiled eggs and bread crumbs, giving them pure water to drink at first, and after that I give them Bour milk. I have good dry coups for them and keep in the shade as much as possible, I have doctored for roup, cholera and gapes, and am satisfied that cholera can be cured in its first stages, Foy rpup I grease their necks and throats with coal oil and lard mixed, For gapes I use a horse hair inserted in the windpipe, and with this I draw out the little red worms.

An animal driven 50 miles and allowed to drink frequently during the drive will shrink 20 pounds. An animal driven 25 miles and allowed to drink frequently during the drive will not show shrinkage if allowed to eat and drink for three hours at the end of a drive. A bunch of 600 pound animals driven 50 miles with care and alllowecl to drink frequently on the dz'ive and at the end allowed to eat and drink for six hours showed 15 pounds shrinkage to the animal.—Denver Farm and Field.
