Not a day passes that Inspectors
employed by city, state or federal gov-
ernment, do n< t condemn food of one
kind or another nerau.se It Is unlit for
human consumption. Sometimes this
is due to deliberate adulteration, an
Intention to defraud the purchasers,
hut more often It is the result of Im-
proper packing, neglect to consider
temperatures to he encountered In
transporting from point of origin to
destination, or failure to consider the
time which must necessarily elapse
before the product is likely to reach
the consumers' tables.
All this entails not only great loss
in money, likely to be reflected in
prices demanded of the public, but
also it endangers the public health,
because occasionally some unworthy
article slips through inspection and is
served as food. Enough food products
spoil every week to form a very im-
portant part of the amount needed by
the people; and practically uil of It
might l>e saved through Intelligence
and care on the part of the producers
After your chickens are fattened and
ready to kill, It will pay you to study
the methods of killing, bleeding, pick-
ing, chilling and packing described
fully In bureau of chemistry circu-
lars: 3, "How to Pick Chickens;"
"How to Wrap Heads"; CI, "How to
Kill and Bleed Market Poultry." Is-

Broilers In Demand.
Ordinarily the demand is for broil-
ers of three sizes—squab broilers,
small broilers and large broilers.
Squab broilers weigh, dressed, from
three-quarters to one pound; small
broilers, the size most In demand the
greater part of the year, weigh from
one to one and a quarter pounds each,
and large broilers from one and one-
half to two pounds.
Broilers may be sold alive or
dressed, In the discretion of the ship-
per; but If dressed, this should be
done according to the demands of the
market, and these demands one can
learn only by Inquiry and study, (let-
ting the product ready for the buyer
in the public market has much to do
with the price received. The appear-
ance of the article, the manner in
which It is packed, and Its condition—
these are the points that make u rep-
utation for the shipper.

The temperature of chickens when
they are alive is 103 degrees Fahren-
heit. This must be reduced after kill-

from one extreme to the other.
When a well-known "movie" star
came out with her hair bobbed It set
a world of ladles thinking. They liked
the effect, but they didn't like to part
with their long tresses. So hairdress-
ers thought of tlie side pieces—the

have ever since beeu complaining
about and femininity, satisfied with
the deception, with one accord wore

And so the style remained for two
years or more. Then, six months ago

But the hairdressers Insisted. So

nouncement that the ear must be

required to chill fowls usually Is about
24 hours, snd the packer must be sure
that the body cavity, as well as the
skin and flesh, are free from heat be-
fore the birds leave the chill room.
Failure to observe this requirement
Is responsible for much of the Ill-con-
ditioned poultry found In the public

specialists In the Department of Agri-
Packing for Market
It Is customary to pack broilers with
the breasts up, and the feet hidden.
Th6 prevailing method at present,
where refrigeration is available, Is to
pack the chickens In small boxes hold- j
ing a dozen each, but small boxes suit-
able for one or two chickens have re-
cently been placed on the market. If
the business is to be permanent the
containers should carry the farm
name, or the name of the shipper if
the farm has no name. An attractive
advertisement on the box has a great
deal to do with marketing, a fact
proved long ago to the satisfaction of
shrewd business men.
Small packages are becoming more
and more popular. Two layers of
chickens in a box are being discarded
! for a single layer, it being realized
that refrigeration Is more perfect if
the carcasses do not touch, and If
pressure ou puch tender tissue ns
chicken muscle is eliminated as far
as possible. On this account heads
are wrapped In waxed paper and
turned buck where they do not rest
against the soft llesh of the breast
or thighs. No longer does the packer
thrust old cocks, bridling chickens and
fowls Indiscriminately Into a big su-
gar barrel, pressing them down in his
effort to pack tightly, and so bruising
the llesh and tearing the skin.
KEEPING DOWN STABLE FLIES
Give Stable Refuse Proper Care and
Stack Straw So That It Will Not

The numbers of sliihle flies can lie

stable refuse and by properly stacking

way that will not inake It attractive

Forest trees grown on the farm add
to Its value and beauty. 'I hey supply
material for farm use, such ns poles,
posts and cord wood; and they afford
shelter for live stock, and protect
crops and buildings from the hot

of winter. Moreover, they often can

INCREASED NITROGEN SUPPLY

Soil Treatment, Rotation of
Crops and Phosphate.
The supply of nitrogen, the most
costly element of food for plants, ran
be Increased through proper soil
treatment, rotation of crops, the ad-
dition of phosphate and Jlmestone and
the growing and plowing under of
legumes. All stable manure Is to be
utilized, and on the older, worn soils
of the East and South some commer-
cial nitrogen may be profitably used.
Following a crop that Is n heavy nitro-

I. Forbidden by the Holy Spirit to
Preach the Word (\\. < -S).
We have here a lesson ou divine
guidance. The Inclination of Paul
and his companions was to tarry in
the provinces of Asia preaching the
word, but contrary to their inclination
they were hurried along. They might
have reasoned "What difference would
it make as to where we preach, Just
so the Gospel Is preached?" Though
seemingly small, the question as to
whether the Gospel should . be
preached among the people in the
Last or in the West has determined
the entire history of the church. Had
they preached among the people In
the East, Christianity would never
have become worldwide. On the other '
hand, by laying hold upon the Grecian j
intellect and combining with it the j
push and energy of the Romans, it |
became worldwide. In the guidance
of the Spirit we find Him just as ac-
tive and as faithful in closing doors
us In opening them. "The stops as
well as the steps of a good man are
ordered of the Lord." We ought to
as truly recognize God's hand in the
"shut-Ins" as well as 4n the "open-
II. Called to Macedonia (vv. 9-12).
A vision was given to Paul of a man
from Macedonia pleading t'or help.
Tills was the solution of the mystery
of closed doors about them. There is
a negative ami a positive side to the
Spirit's guidance. If we will note
both we shall be able to determine
with a surety the proper course of ac-
tion. In order to be led aright we
must he sure that we are willing to
be led, pray definitely for leading, and
then render willing obedience as fast
ns the light comes. As soon as the
divine way was known they rendered
III. The First Convert in Europe
The missionaries went to philippi.
The Jewish element in this city was
very insignificant; so much so that
they could not afford a synagogue; !
therefore the devout people were ac- |
customed to worship at the river side. .
To this humble gathering Paul came
and preached to the women gathered
there. A certain woman from Thy-
; at Ira believed his message, and was
baptized. Lydia was a woman of
wealth, culture, and wide experience,
j and yet she had need of Chirst. The
steps in Lydia's conversion are worthy
of note: >"
