Thining Fruit Trees
Horticultural Branch—Department uf Agriculture
It.    M     fflNSLOW,   B.S.A,
Provincial Horticulturist
The very favorable weathor which
Iiiih occurred throughout tin1 blooming
season in nil the fruit districts of the
province hns favored the setting of u
very large percentage of blossoms.
There are very few trees which will
not hnve all the fruit tliey can carry,
and probably the majority of them
will have more than they can curry,
with profit, This brings ua the question of the thinning of fruit, n practice well recognised in the Stntes to
the south of us, but not generally understood throughout British Columbia, A discussion of the methods nnd
results of thinning Ib at the present
time very much in order, because the
work must be undertaken in the very
near future.
ln discussing ihe question of thinning, we admit that it tree muy set
more fruit thnn it can possibly bring
to perfection, ns the fruit-grower understands perfection. Nature cures
nothing for the fruit except us they
nre necesBury to the .production of
seed: the orchnrdist cures nothing for
seeds except ns they nre necessary to
tbe production of fruit.. Wc wish
each tree to carry nil the fruit it can
bring to commercial perfection, nnd
uo more.
At the same time, the tree must
make new vegetative growth consistent with its age and the variety.
The third requisite is thnt it should
also form enough fruit-spurs for a
similar crop in the following year.
This idenl is the foundation of our
orchard practice.
When a tree is fulfilling these throe
requirements it is performing its mux
imum duty to the owner. If it falls
short in any one of them, he is not
getting his maximum of profit, either immediate or prospective, from it.
The removal of some of thc fruit.
at au early stage in its growth helps
materially towards securing the max
imum duty of the tier in certain hell
nlte ways:—
tl.) The average size of the fruit
left un the trees is increased; this is
the most obvious result of thinning.
Trees overburdened with fruit produce a greater percentage of No. t
apples. The increase in size of the remainder, nfter the flrst and second
pickings of Bartlett pears is made, is
a striking instance of the increase in
size wben the number of fruits is reduced.
CI.) The fruit borne is more uniform in sL/e and shape. On the overloaded tree there Es much variation
in size, and especially where two or
more fruit remains on a spur, they
are variable In shape as well. The
fruits from the side blossoms of the
cluster are in many varieties much
different from those from the centre
blossom, usually being flutter in
shape und having a considerably longer stem. Uniformity in Bize und
shape is nn important essential of
commercial perfection.
(3.) The color is materially bettered, more uniform, ami comes earlier.
The remarkable increase In color
which occurs when rt first picking is
made from heavily bearing trees of
even the winter varieties, such us
Jonathan nnd Wngener, furnishes
striking confirmation of this point.
While color seems largely related to
sunshine, it is a well-known fact that
on a heavily loaded tree the fruit has
less color, which is less evenly distributed and more slowly ucquired.
(4.) Thinning improves the quality.
This is especially the case where the
soil is deficient in moisture or plunt-
(5.) The fruit is freer of diseases
nnd insect pests, because wormy apples, limb-bruised, or diseased fruit,
of nny kind, can be removed*at the
thinning time. On plums umi peaches in moist regions, fruits thinned so
thnt no two touch when fully grown

An Opinion of Cranbrook
By a Visitor
To the Editor of the "Prospector",
Dear Sir-
Will you kindly give me space in
your paper to explain my ideas ns to
your city and its surroundings. With
n view to raise discussion und possibly lead to action!
When here some 2 or :t yenrs ago I
thought well of Crnnbrook, believing
its location good, and tbe idle land
around you capable of producing much
wealth nnd prosperity if properly
handled. I nm a mixed farming enthusiast and am delighted to see so
much attention being given to poultry. In old Ireland it is snid to be
"the pig that pays the rent"—here 1
think it mny yet he said that the
poultry, cow and pig paid for the
Since my tlrst visit I bnve spoken
many a word In Europe In favor of
Crnnbrook und have induced some
good mon to come . and see It for
themselves. One gentleman with a
large available Capital for investment
came to yonr station ut my suggestion, but looking round, wuh iinfuv
orable Impressed uud lefl again by
the same train- litter advising ute
that "he thought Cranhrook only u
■mall mining town" uiifortunutely
he did not see it to advantage,
Although some splendid Improve
meats have BlnCO heen mnde on the
main business street, uud mnny lovely Httle homes bllllt on the avenues,
there Ih yet room for much to he done
if Crnnbrook Is to he nn up-to-date
Ideal city—us it can and should bo—
and for which I think the time is ripe
for action.
What seems to me to be needed Is
a strong public opinion uud action
backing up your council in their evident progressive Inclinations.
Although only n stranger, nnd at
president non-roHldcnt, liuving secured
a considerable interest in thc district, I venture, with ull respect, to
make n few suggestions—
To capture those capitalists from
the home Innd nnd down east—who
are passing through looking for it location wltb u view to sottlo you
should improve the nppeurnnce of tho
town us seen from the railway train.
And to InereuHP the interest und
hold those who stup over to look a
round—you should improve your
streets nnd ns fur us pOMlbto prevent
the inconvenience of flying dust, and
provide pretty nnd convenient parks
for reBt, fresh air and reereutlon, not
only for the boys but for the mother
and her baby.   Such cities us Toron
to, Ottawa, and Spokane are good
Why not muke a start on Bnker

I I notice u few of your public spirit -

1 making excellent efforts in laying
down grass, boulevards und cement
side wulks. These are good samples
Muke this general and add thereto
' rows of trees both sides nnd you will
, be u long way towards u pretty city.
Mountain \sh nud Maples make a
pretty combination.
Then you want a pretty drive—why
not put in  trees both sides of Koo-
; tenay street out to the boundary  hi
the north und  I-alwani street to the
:boundary    in    the    east    .thence up
I boundary avenue northward,    I feel
j sure those  owning   the  luiid  between
'these  points north  of the town  site
would gladly cooperate with the couu
ell  to have u  similarly  pretty   rond

"With reference to the rumors nf

limy say that it Is my understanding
from my conversations with Mr.
Louis Hill, who was in tbe capital
recently, that the (1 rent Northern

ut the present time it should sulliee,
thnt very shortly they will start upon this work. I am informed that it
is their intention to let contracts for
construction work in u few days nub
that no time will be lost in getting

"And added to that addltionnd
work there has to be taken into consideration the determination of the

"Now, 1 make the claim that a pro

in history, and if ynu ask me how it
is that we are able to do it in British Columbia, I must answer that it
is rendered possible on account of the
splendid financial status which the
province enjoys. It. has been argued
tlmt undertaking such an immense
work represents recklessness, hut I do
not think that statement is, or can,
the credit of the country is getting
be serious, for the simple reason that
; better than ever. As a business proposition, it is tbe desire of tbe government to get the best value for
every dollar spent, and with special
reference to tbe railway programme I
think it must be conceded that we are
getting it.

The Carthaginians were tbe first
people to make systematic practice
of road -building , but no nation de*
rived so many various benefits as
that of Home. Oreat aud wonderful
are the monuments that perpetuate
the name ol Koine and everything
connected with it, hut none are ao
famous us her roads. Koine's military, commercial and Imperial success
was due, primuril) to ber splendid
system Of highways, the relics of
which extend from the Pillars of
Hercules to the Temple ot Jerusalem
Hut the Roman road-makers have a
far more important lesson for Canada. The world will, for all time, remember the message of Christ, which
waB delivered to humanity tbrougb
the medium of the Koman roads.
There me thousands of people existing in hamlets scattered throughout
Canada, who are awaiting religious
instruction. They will not emerge
from their semi-barbarous state until the "Good Koads Movement" has
won its way into every nook of this
new country.
The attendance to the rural meeting place is diminishing; the attendance to the school-house is dwindling, friendship is being severed with
the neighbor living a short distance
away; and with the person to whom
you regularly send n letter; and the
village preacher is being discouraged.
What is the reason for this.' Impassable roads and nothing else. Country communities are uot going to
wnde through mud to post a letter,
to ?o to school, to go to church, or
visit a friend, neither will they suffer
their horses to attempt it. They will
hot be pestered with doctor's bills
because the road is transformed into
a qnadmire. Rural inhabitants arc
being degraded educationally, socially and morally. Country folk are not
migrating to cities because they don't
like rural life, but because the roads,
if they may be called sa, are impassa
hie. These people are intelligent e-
nough to see that nil the discomfort
nnd prevention of social enjoyment of
the Roman road-builders. You cannot estimate in dollars and cents the
national loss entailed by the constant
withdrawal of labor from farms, and
by the fading of the influence of the
character-building institutions of the
Bushnell, a great American thinker
says: "If new ideas are abroad, new
hopes arising, you will see it by tbe
roads that are building." Simultaneously with the movement for tbe
need of good-roads arises one far-
reaching Idea, even more profound
than the enhancing of land values.
It Is the social betterment by which
Canada is playing a distinguishing
part in tbe uplift of the world.
Now we turn to tbe meaning of
roads in the economic sphere. It is
& good business policy? Canada's
manufacturers, men of commerce and
business admit     that Canada   needs

such a policy, but because they cannot see any solid, unrestricted and
available gain that would accrue,
tbey .don't care. The cost of u breakfast roll would be trifling did it not

did from New York to Liverpool, a
distance of three thousand one hundred tulles.   The cost  of a boiled egg
is the payment of transportation
from the ben to the household. The
intrinsic value of the egg is a mere
tittle compared with the expense of
carriage through  two (eet  of mud.
Over tht* deep rutted roads, as thoy
i*xtst at present, a fanner ran haul,
on an average, six hundred pounds
in live hours with two horses. If
good roads weie constructed( howcv
tr, it has been calculated thnt one
horse could draw twelve hundred
pounds and more In two hours. Not
only would the fanner save time, COII
serve bis energies, make better use of
his vehicles and horses and 0 ■" •*>
save money; but tbe consumer, l o,
would receive his needs nt I i
prices. Ami as Canada's agricultural
product Ion Is annually increasing by
leaps and bounds, a greater proportion of money would be saved by all
classes of people year by year; and,
probably, the high cost of living tn
urban districts would recede to the
"It costs the average Canadian
farmer two dollars it ton to haul his
produce to the market town, to the
railway station or lake port, lt Is
known that the production of Held
crops alone amounts to about 40,000,
000 tons a year. It would be ntoder
ate to estimate that 2.r>1000,000 of
this tonnage is hauled over roads,
one way or another; so we have
150,000,000 as cost of teaming Held
crops hy the farmers. This cost
could be reduced if we had first-class
roads, to 120,000,000, a saving of tiO
per cent, leaving $30,000,000 as a sav
tug on one class of product alone."
The building of good roads would
increase the value of taxable lands
not only in the vicinity but also
the most remote parts. Stupendous
amounts could he collected in taxes
and the assets of the nation as well
as the landlord would increase. New
towns would spring up; new railway
branches would he built; and Canada
would be settled and developed at a
miraculous rate.
Our convicts could be profitably
employed building roads. Of course,
it is useless to have them constructed unless carried on in n systematic
and seientitlc way. The roads must
be "graded, topped and rolled," they
should be constructed so thut water
will quickly drain off nnd so that the
greatest applied pressure will uot
force upon the foundation and cause
mud to ooze up and ruts to be renewed.
Well constructed roads shorten distances by reducing the time to travel
They would give rise to a further exploration of sparsely settled districts
and would result in tbe discovery
and the shipping of more mineral
and timber wealth.
I feel confident that smooth hard
roads would mean more to Canada
than any other project. I believe
that a remarkable awgvenlng, a renaissance would take place. The- eco
nomlc and national advantages that
would ensue are incalculable. The energetic settlement and development
of Canada would swell the treasury
and the country would enjoy an era
of prosperity unequalled in Its his
tory. flood roads in Canada would
mean a higher standard of citizen

and good morals; and a better understanding and a mutual sympathy be

A strange discovery lately made in
.the walls of tho old palace of tlic
j Louvre shows that reinforced concrete was by no means unknown In
Purls as far bank as the six teen tu
century, when the building of the
(Louvre was undertaken liy that Industrious builder, Francis I, The
! Builder states that, when executing
worl.s in connection with tbo application of a modern lift, tiie workmen
nnployed found It necessary to cut
through some of tiie old walls, which
wore, apparently, of dressed! masonry. But, to tbo surprise of the con-
j I motors, It was found that the stone
was nothing but the outer shell of
construction, largely composed of a
kind of r.-in forced concrete. In view
of ihe generally entertained bellei

Green Handkerchiefs Now
"PMERALD green handkerchiefs are
tho.very latest novelties for feminine wear.
Made of silk wllb a hemstitched edge,
the handkerchief ia lho dominating

size, nlso made of silk and finished wltb
a tiny hemstitched edgo.

first mourning hats aro allowed to show
a relieving lino of whllo, and many
models aro elaborately trimmed with
whito crape, which Is very effective

Ono of tho quaintest models of this
sort scon recently Is a largo bonnet

of heavy mourning silk, but It tins a
narrow turned back brim nil nround of

A Difference In Buttons
T5LTTTONS make tho supremo and
mysterious separation of tlio sexes. And buttonholes! If ns a man you
will go through your clothes, from
overcoat to the underclothes, you will
find that tho buttons are on tho right
and the buttonholes on*the left
But you will notice that tho feminine
garments close up tbe other way and
that the woman demands her buttonhole to correspond. Feminine clothes
fold from right to left, masculine from
left to right And thero Is the problem.

Spring Housecleaning Hint
TKflTH the spring housecieanlng going
on many women who take care of
their own homes will find it necessary to
turn Ihelr carpets nbout Into different
positions In a room before laying tbem
again. Perhaps the carpets will have
to bo made over, ripped in tho scams
and turned about to meet the needs of
the readjustment
If this is tho case use a sharp penknife or a small paring knife with a
sharp edge. Turning tin! carpet on the
wrong side so tho seams are exposed,
cut tho stitches exactly between the
scam, taking care not to cut the carpet.
After tho breadths havo been turned
nbout they must bo sewed together
again. First pick out all the threads
from each side of the seams, then lay
tho breadths together, right fildo to
right side, and sew with waxed carpet
thread, using a long, heavy needle
which comes for the purpose, Tbo
stitch most commonly used Is the simple over and over slltch.
Stitches should not bo taken too
close together and should not be drawn
tight Just draw them so Ibcy will be
firm and allow thc scam to llo fiat
whon tbe carpet Is laid on tbe floor.
Some persons prefer Iho cross or cat
stitch for sewing Ingrain carpets, but
the easiest and quickest is to uso the
over and over stitch.
Old carpets that have outlived their
usefulness as entire floor coverings
may bo converted Into useful rugs by
ripping up each breadth, selecting tho
best parts nnd sewing them together,
to make as large a rug as possible with
tbo usable carpet The ends of these
carpet rugs may be bound with stout
cloth or finished with fringe that
matches tho predominating color In tbo
A housekeeper who Is forced to economize lu every possible wny mado three
good sized rugs from an old brussets
carpet    .
Tlio nnp was so worn from the right
side that she found It almost worthless,
so sho turned the carpet wrong side
up, making It into rugs, then applied
muhognny stain lo them, making tbem
rich red brown color that harmonized well with tho otber furnishings of
tho room.

On a cold day the windows of your

of a kitchen window on wash day.
In very cold weather the panes ought
to he frosted. If you tind this is not
the case the air probably needs a

Yon will soon feel comfortable, although the temperature of the room
will not have risen. With properly

Who Is thc knocker" This question
is easily answered. You will nsiplly
"nd him on some corner when tin-
iiollce nre not present; his nmount ol
ivork during the dny is represented
by the algebraic figure X. nnd bis occupation, if ynu nsked him, would
liu-Mlc him more thnn the solution of
the number of summers seen by tbe
ficticious Ann. Still, he knows how
the entire city should he regulated
nlthougli he docs not know and does
not enre, how he will pny his prill
tni. He couldn't go on the bond of
a man lined ten cents, yet he discusses the "nances ot the city as If he
bail the combination to the city
treasurer at his finger's end. Nothing thnt happens In his town Is nny
irooil; it can never he. He Judges the
town from his own standard and the
conclusion Is obvious. Dees kill out
the drones; the law prevents our foi
lowing the example ot the industrious

Where is my hoy tonight?   You are)
bis   father or mother, unit if you desire to lay your linnils upon your boy j
within    (Ive mlnut.es any night,  you I
wouldn't    know   where   to llnd him.
He's   on the street somewhere or at
the railroad depot Jumping on freight
trains, but Just where, with whom,
In whnt engaged, what plotting or
what executing for thc shrewder ones
who plot for him, you couldn't tell
for the life of you. He hns a good
home and ought to be there nt night
He desires to lie somewhere else with
the boys, and ynu lack the moral
courage to Insist thnt he shall he
where he Is wanted. You hope that
he will escape the pitfalls, hut you
know tho chances are agnlnst him.
Why don't you do the boy the kindness to keep lilm home night*? The
time will come when he will thnnv
you for It or will reproach you for
not doing It.
Children should be trained to behave
at home as you would hnve them
behave   abroad.   It is the  home lib
which they act out when away. Ia
the actions of children, strangers can
read a hlBtory of home life. Something is wrong in those homes where
the little courtesies of speech an Ignored In the everyday home life.
...    a
Don't be a knocker. Hide your little hammer and try to speak wen of
others no mattor how smnll you may
really know yourself to be. When a
stranger drops In, Jolly him. Tell
him this Is the greatest town on
earth—and It Is. Don't discourage
lilm by speaking ill of your neighbors. There's no end of fun mind-
the people like you. Nohndy get"
the ueople like you. Nobody get!

(6.) Thc removal ol misshapen Iruit
lowers the percentage ol low.grade
(7.i Thinning prevents premature
dropping. A familiar Instance is that,
of the Mcintosh Red, which ia especially HnMo to drop where two fruits
are left on the one spur. Premature
dropping is quite largely due to the
inability of the tree to Biipply moisture to an excessive crop.
(8.) The load ol fruit Is more even
ly distributed and this Is a very important feature in preventing the
breaking down of trees.
(9.) The cost ol picking is reduced
considerably, and the labor ol pick-
cue im

ing is divided more evenly over the
season. This ls an Important advantage where the supply ol labor is deficient In picking time. Costs ot grading nnd packing are nlso much lessened.
(10.) LeBS fertility is removed from
the soil. A ton of apples takes out
approximately 1.2 lb. ol.nitrogen, 1.6
lb. ol potash, and 0.6 lb. of phosphoric acid. A ton of pears removes the
same amount of nitrogen and about
twice as much of the other elements.
The seeds take the great bulk ol these
amounts, the pulp ol the fruit taking
hut a small portion. As the number
ol seed is roughly in proportion to
the number ol apples, and not their
size, the removal ol Irults loaves a
much greater supply ol plant-food
for the balance of the crop, for the
growth ol the trees, and in the soil.
(11.) The tree Is less liable to win-
tor injury. The ripening of the heavy
crop drains the vitality ol the tree,
so leaving It in poor shape to withstand the winter. Trees bearing mod
erate crops lor which there is an adequate supply of plant tood and an
adequate supply of moisture have
sufficient vitality to ripen the crop,
and to ripen the fruit-buds and new
shoots as well.
(12.) One of the most important results of thinning Ib that the trees will
bear a larger and more uniform crop
the following year. The tendency towards biennial bearing is materially
reduced, much depending in this, however, on the variety,
Kor various reasons, then, thinning
helps materially to secure the minimum duty from tho tree.
whkn to thin-
as soon ns the crop can be determined and the supply of labor permits, thinning should be commenced.
Htart with those varletleB which are
most advanced. Oenerally, npples,
pears, nnd peaches are thinned when
about the sine ol a hickory-nut, and
the thinning should be completed he-
lore thay are double that size. On
the various plums thc work should be
commenced as soon as possible after
the dropping, familiarly known nn
'-the June drop," is over.
To set rules lor thinning Is even
more difficult than to set rules lor
pruning. The Iruit-grower must determine (or himself just bow much
crop the tree will be able to carry.
Much depends nn the vitality ,thc soil
cultivation, cllmnte, and dlatrlct. Un
der equal conditions the Wlneanp may
be thinned to say, 5 inches, where the
Jonnthnn would be thinned to 6 nr 7
und the Northern Hpy to H. In climates Such as that nf Vancouver Island where nn Irrigation is available,
and the rainfall averages about hull
an Inch per month during the summer
season, or one-lllth that ol the average Ontario district, all varieties are
thinned to a greater distance than in
districts ol greater rainfall nr where
irrigation is available. In this district It is advisable to thin many
crops, the wbole of which could be
carried to advantage under othor cnn
dltions. Unhealthy nr diseased trees
shodld nut br expected to grow as
great a loud as those In perlect
health, while trees making extensive
growth may very well be allowed to
carry much more than average trees
under the same conditions.
Hy one rule which Is practised to
some extent the grower sizes up all
the conditions and determines how
many boxes ol Iruit the tree will curry     It Is a small matter   then   to
determine   bow    many   Irults   there
should be left on the tree.
Another rule which might be taken
in connection with the previous one
is to thin plums to about 2, 2', or 3
Inches; peaches, 4 to 8, depending on
tbe enrlinesB ol the variety; pears and
apples, 5 or 7 inches apart.   In thinning pears and apples, it is only with
varieties that more than one should be
left on any fruit-spur, and with these
early varieties part of the crop may
be removed ln one  picking and the
balance later.    With winter varieties
of apples It is a safe rule to leave
fruit only on each alternate spur, lo
encourage annual bearing.    On slender twigs and on wood of the past
season's growth (where many varieties bear heavist in British Oolumbla
it is well to thin  to  a greater iHb-
tance than on strong fruit-spurs ln
the body of the tree.    On  the outside twtgB and shoots the fruit will
average smaller than on the stouter
branches; they are unable to grow a
close crop of fruit to perfection.
A very important point, well Illustrated by the Yellow  Newton apple,
Is tbat the centre apple nt the cluster
and not one of the side apples, should
remain.    The  centre   blnssom   of  tbe
cluster comes out first;   Its stem ls
usually    shorter    and    stneker   than
those of ths outside blusBnms, and at
the   time  of   thinning   the apple Is
usually larger than the others and Ion
a shorter   stem.     The   centre  apple
usually hangs better to the tree, is
the typical  apple of tbe variety,  Is
less liable to variation in shape, und
having a shorter stem is better for
packing and lor appearance sake.
Fruit-spurs vary greatly in Bine and
vitality; the best spurs bear the best
Iruit; the weaker spurs sln.iilil be given a chance to develop into strong
ones before next year's crop.
In the production  ol   fancy  fruit,
thinning,  pays,   and   pnys   well.   It
means much in the assurance ol crop
ol high.class fruit.    It is not likely
to be of value unless the orchard is
right in the matter of variety, fertility, cultivation, pruning, and spraying; it ls not likely to give good returns unless the high-class article pro
duced is properly packed and marketed hy business-like methods.    Thinu-
ing is an essential feature of the new
orchard culture.
Present   Indicntions   are tbat this
year will see the largest crop ol tree-
fruits Hritisli Oolumbla bus yet had.
Throughout the  Province Irom Vancouver  Island  to the  Kootenays the
apple, prune, peach, pear, and plumi
trees have been full of blossom, audi
there hue heen nn loss (rom Irost or j
unfavorable   weather.     Must  ul   the
trees are certain tu have a heavy luad
uf fruit, of which very niucli will he
undersized   unless   thinning   is   practised.   It Is hoped that frtiit-gruwers
will grasp tiie situation rightly.   The
prices for undersized Iruit nra never
very remunerative.    It Is always the
good, large, perfect fruits tliitt bring
paying returns.   Tbls year tiie dlfler-
I'lice In price hetween Inney and low
grade fruit will lie emphasized, Large
yields nf fruit nre prnmlseil in Ontario, In the Middle  Htates. Colorado,
California, Montana,  Idaho, Oregon,
and  Washington,  as  well  as  in  llrit
i.ili    Oolumbla.      The    North western
Htatcs, In fact, bave the bumper crop
ol their history; and tbey look tn the
Canadian prairies tn buy*«i great deal
of It, aB times are good In Canada,
while money Is scarce In the United
Htntes.    This menus that there will
lie plenty ot poor fruit fur sale In our
markets   without   any Irom   British
Columbln, and  tbe  returns fur  this
class ol Iruit are hound tu lie low.
Neither do tbe canneries want small
iruit; there la no money in plepeaclies,
fnr any one.   Kvery gruwer should re- j

Poultry Notes
When feeding non-sitters wltb oats
and wheat alternately, a handful ot
good mixed corn to every four of oats
or wheat will greatly improve the
egg supply.
It is claimed that crossing several
different strains ol the same variety
will result in a lessened   egg   yield.
Whether this is   true or not we   do
not know, aud think it Is improba-

with an old bird instead of a pullet,
and to him the following may be
useful. Lilt up the wing and examine the bare skin just at the root. II
this has a dry chalky appearance,
the bird is probably old, but if the
veins show plainly and tbe skin looks
fresh the bird may be relied upon to
be young.
Eggs minus the shell arises from
one of two causes—either disease of
opiduct, or more probably, deficiency
of calcareous matter supplied, ln
which case a cure may be effected In
two days by making the drinking
water one-half lime water, To make
lime-water, to a quarter pound of
lime, Ilrst slaved with a little water,
add Bix pints ol water. Shake well
together, and wben wnnted pour off

Insufficient  attention  is sometimes
puld to tbe fact that green food   is
beneficial  to poultry.    Unfortunately
fowls almost  invnriahly    eventually
destroy the grass of runs ol limited
size.   A good and easy method of restoring same is to Iny loose bundles
i ol pen-sticks over as much of the run
nn can lie temporarily sacritlced, and
I even    where the grass blades    have
i been previously ull picked off, a good
fresh growth    ot tender green  grass
will soon establish itself, when    the
bundles can be removed nnd applied
to     another spot.    Fowls especially
appreciate this fresh growth ol grasB

the opportunity thus afforded them.
When you feed    the    young chicks
with a natural mother, be sure and
give her a good feed    ot grain first.
Many   chickens    are     lost     yearly
through     the   mother   not brooding
