Whether a farmer shall use a hen
or an incubator for hatching bis chicks
will depend largely on the volume of
his operations. If he keeps only a
dozen or so hens it certainly will not
J pay him to depend on an incubator,
but If he expects to raise several hun-
dreds hens a year, as we believe every
| farmer should, It will be advisable for
him to secure an incubator as soon as
he can. Incubators can now be pur-
j chased very cheaply, and the invest-
j ment will be a permanent one, for it
Is probably true that so far as one
man's life is concerned Incubators nev-

better to get a large machine. A big
flock of chicks is not so hard to look
out for as a number of smaller flocks,
®s one can readily imagine who has had
much to do with sitting hens.
The comparison of the hen and the
Incubator shows that much of the pre-
ponderance of testimony is on the side
of the incubator. Who that has had to
look after a dozen sitting hens has not
wished that all of the hens could be
combined into one big hen and that all
of the chicks could he put into one
flock? This is one of the most valuable
things about the incubator. One can
raise from one to two hundred chicks
at a time and have the work all in a
bunch. Another advantage is that the
lice can be Anally exterminated. In

The commissioners, after a thorough
investigation, arrived at a basis of val-
uation which, although at first object-
ed ti# by the traders, was at last ac-
cepted by them, and they pi,id their
taxes, amounting to SToo.
The Kan
Midland, according to
the latest information, is preparing to
build south, as this paragraph from
the Chandler Democrat-Telegram
would indicate: "P. s. Hoffman is in
receipt of a letter from the commercial
club of Wichita. Kan., conveying the
information that a surveying part vis
at work between Wichita and Chand-
ler with a view of locating the line of
tlie Kansas Midland railroad, which
the Wichita people are anxious should
reach Chandler. The party will be
here in a few days, aud ilie people
should see that they are made to see
the advantages of coming to Chandler
with tlicir road."
This alone is a consideration of vast
I moment. When wo use hens for sit-
ting it is generally Impossible to ex-
terminate the lice. At least, even if
they can be exterminated by extraordi-
nary methods, they seldom are. Some
time ago the Earmers' Review sent out
inquiries to its readers as to the cause
of losses in the poultry yard. The re-
plies showed that more chicks were
lost from lice than from all other
causes combined. Thus the incubator
removes at one stroke the greatest
cause for mortality among chicks.
Probably the second greatest loss
among newly born chicks is being trod-
den to death by the old hen. We some-
times hear people say that no one can
care for a chick as an old hen, but the
fact remains that the hen is so stupid
that she will stand on a chick till the
life is gone, even though the little one
keeps up a constant peeping as long as
it can. Instinct does not take the place
of Intellect. The writer has frequently
lost the larger part of a brood through
the stupidity of the old hen. This is
especially true of heavy hens for
mothers. With some of the heavy
birds it is no unusual thing to go out
to their nest every morning and find
"another dead chick." So we believe
that it will pay the farmer to substi-
tute his own intellect for the instinct
of the hen. This he can do in the pur-
chase of an incubator.
Of course, like all other things, the
running of an incubator must be
learned, but this is not a difficult thing
to do, provided one will listen to the
advice of those who have run them for
many years. It is not at all necessary
for one to learn entirely in the dear
school of experience. The main point
in an incubator is to keep the tempera-
ture right, and to see that when the
chicks come Into the brooder they have
enough heat to enable them to make a
continuous growth.
Thinning Fruit.—S. A. Beach, a New-
York horticulturist, made some expert
ments last year in thinning fruit. Of
two Baldwin trees the fruit on one was
thinned and on the other was not. The
thinned tree yielded about 14 per cent
less fruit than the unthinned tree, but
ten per cent more of its fruit graded
No. 1. Three trees, each of Baldwins
and greenings, were thinned and an
equal number of like trees were left
unthinned. The thinned Baldwins
gave about 21 per cent less fruit than
the unthinned ones, but 22 per cent
more of it graded No. 1. The thinned
greenings gave about G per cent more
fruit than the unthinned ones, and
about 10 per cent more of it graded No
1. In all cases the thinned fruit wac
so much higher colored than the un-
thinned fruit that its market value was
Inci eased from 10 to 15 per cent. The
thinning and picking of the thinned
fruit took about twice as much time as
the picking of the unthinned fruit.
Dirt in Milk.—Quite apart from the
numerous micro-organisms which may
be contained and thrive in milk—and
from some of which, despite the great-
est amount of care, the liquid can
never be totally protected—there are
other bodies which frequently find
their way into what may even then
be commonly called "pure" milk. The
following substances, for instance, are
stated by Professor Grotenfelt, of Fin-
nd, to have been found by him in
unstrained milk fresh from the cow:
articles of skin, small pieces of wood,
fir leaves and shavings, parts of in-
sects, linen and woolen threads, cob-
webs, and other substances which may
easily float In the air. The commoner
impurities, however, are small par-
ticles of manure, which more common-
ly fall into the milk during the process
of milking, the amount generally vary-
ing with the state of cleanliness of
the hind quarters of the
Dairy World.

The Air of tlie Stable.
Too little attention is paid to the air
of the stable. Yet there are two rea-
sons why the air should be kept pure.
First, for the purpose of preserving the
health of the cows; second, that milk
drawn In the stable may not be polluted
by the bad air. In the spring and sum-
mer and fall it is an easy matter to
thoroughly air the stable in day time.
Open all the doors and all the windows,
letting in the sun as well as the wind.
The work of the latter will be the more
effective if care has been taken to keep
the manure cleaned out, and if arrange-
ments have been made to have the
urine run off into tanks below or out-
side of the barn. The less the air is
allowed to be polluted by these means
the easier will it be to keep the whole
inside of the stable clean and sweet
One of the greatest obstacles to pure
air is the usual system of handling the
manure. That is, a hole is cut in the
side of the barn through which to
throw out the droppings. The pile on
the outside accumulates from month to
month, and by spring has become a
source of foul smells that penetrate
Into the stable through all the cracks,
windows and doors. The manure pile
against the side of the barn is a relic
of barbarism, and must be banished.
Angora Goats.—For several years
past, in many of the western states
and also in sections farther east, ex-
periments have been made with the
Angwra goats and the results indicate
that the breeding of them will be
profitable in any section where sheep
are successfully raised. These goats
breed and mature about the same time
as sheep and require much the same
treatment. 'I he fleece of the Angora
goat is worth about 20 per cent more
than that of sheep, and their flesh is
considered by epicures as superior to
mutton. They do sell better than
sheep, as the meat is worth about the
same price and the pelt much more.
Angoras and sheep may be raised to-
gether, as they never cross breed—Ex.
Alr-^Y ashed Milk. — Our personal
practice for some years in preparing
milk for bottling showed conclusively
that the passing of a current of cold,
pure air, washed in the way suggested
from every particle of dust or impur-
ity, did have a good result, which was
proved by the fact that milk so air
washed, as we might say, kspt sweet
in the equally well prepared bottles
for four days longer than the unaerated
milk. This practical evident® ^ fhe
advantage of proper aeration and cool-
ing, by pure, cold air, goes to show
that if well done, in a scientific man-
ner, the aeration of milk is useful for
this purpose at least; and if so, it may
well be believed that it will be found
useful for the butter maker.—Country
Handling a Colt.—In handling a colt,
Its Instincts and tendencies should nev-
er be lost sight of, such as kicking,
striking and running away from any-
thing it conceives to be dangerous. Its
faculties of seeing, smelling and hear-
ing are very acute, and are given it for
self-preservation, which is the first law
of nature. The experienced trainer
will be patient, and not require too
much of a colt at the start, but grad-
ually bring him in contact with all
Imaginary dangers, until it learns from
experience that they are harmless. No
thoughtful or Intelligent person will
ever abuse a colt for being afraid of
anything, for it simply intensifies its
fear and makes matters worse.
What Breed?—This is a question
that is frequently asked. In selecting
a breed all must depend on circum-
stances. The man that wants to sup-
ply broilers should of course select
some breed that is not distinctly an
egg-producing breed. The man that
wants eggs exclusively should use an
egg breed. Above all things, avoid a
no-breed. The no-breed fowl can nev-
er be depended on. She may give good
satisfaction and may not

(Condensed from Farmer* Review Sten-
ographic Report of meetlM* "f Kannu
Stat* Board of Agriculture)
Prof. C. F. Curtis of Iowa spoke on
practical excellence in beef cattle. Last
fall a railroad man in Iowa had made
the statement that there were 80.000,-
000 bushels of corn stored along the
railroads in that state that could not
be marketed at a profit. Things have
changed some since then, but there is
little doubt that something like the
same conditions exist now in Kansas.
Within his memory there had not been
a time when the outlook for cattle rais-
ing was better than at present. He
then gave an illustrated talk on the
different breeds as beef producers. As
we have previously reported this talk,
we will omit it now. The subject of
gains in beef per pound of feed was
Q.—In your experiments at the Iowa
experiment station is It not shown that
cattle having the same breeding and
the seme age differ greatly as to the
comparative gains they can make on
the same food?
A.—Yes, sir; there are differences,
but those differences are more In-
fluenced by the manner of feeding than
by the breeding of cattle. We have
found that a coarse-bred animal will
make more gain than a flne-fleshed an-
Q.—What advantage do you find in
the Shorthorns over the Herefords?
A- Well, we have made some expe-
riments and have not found much dif-
ference. Sometimes our experiments
have been in favor of one breed and
sometimes of the other. I do not think
that we have carried our experiments
far enough to be able to say for a cer-
tainty which is best.
Mr. Norton—You spoke of that three
or four year old Hereford steer gain-
ing more rapidly than some steers of
another type. Did he not cat more?
A,—Yes, sir; the big steer is always
able to make a better gain than a small
one, but it costs more.
Q'—Will it pay to buy Mexican steers
for feeding?
A.—I would not advise it as a general
Q.—Is their any difference between
the Herefords and Shorthorns as to
their grazing qualities?
A.—I am not prepared to express an
Mr. Potter.—I think there will be
more money lost in going to Mexico
and other places for feeders than we are
likely to make up for some time. They
will put these cattle and their expen-
sive feed together and lose both.
Professor Cothell, being called on,
said that he agreed with Professor Cur-
tlss as to the amount of gain certain
animals would make, but that there was
an immense difference in individuals
as to the use they could make of tte
same food, even when such animals
were of the same breed.
A Member.—Some years ago some of
the farmers in my vicinity bought some
Texas cattle for fattening purposes.
But with the Texas cattle they bought
also the Texas fever and it worked gen-
eral havoc. Many of the farmers that
bought those cattle had been getting
along well, but some of them lost so
heavily through the fever that they
went out of the cattle business alto-
gether. That experience should be a.
lesson for all.
Mr. C. M. Beeson spoke on the possi-
bilities and probabilities of Western
Kansas. Western Kansas is now being
used for purposes which nature intend-
ed it. Nature designed that part of the
state as a grazing regie But the im-
migrants from Illinois and Ohio had
in their mind's eye the pleasant homes
they had left, with orchards and grain
fields, nnd expected to reproduce the
same conditions in Western Kansas.
But the lessons of experience, though
toutly, are never forgotten. And the
attempt at farming with grain as the
only resource has been proved to be an
expensive failure. The possibility of
success in Western Kansas has been
changed into a certainty.
Some SufcKoHtiniiH About Woltj.
In the Produce Review Mr Geo. Still-
«on says about storing tubs as below;
I have just been reading your remark*
regarding moldy tubs. I find the great-
est trouble is where they are stored
before and after packing. Many cream-
eries are infected with mold, and thor-
oughly seasoned tubs stored in or near
them soon become infected Besides
not one cooling room in fifty i3 clear
from it. If stored in there but a short
time tubs are infected. Steam will not
kill the mold when once in the wood.
I don't believe anything but tire wl!'

cooling rooms filled with tubs when not
in use, which I always discourage.
There are very few cooling rooms that
are good for anything but to keep flies
away from articles. A good ice cool-

ers' supply manufacturer of Toledo, I
think would be good for creameries. It
is the best dry air meat cooler I have
