f HACTICAL TALK ON POULTRY
Much Advice Given by Theoretical
Writers Not Worthy of Consid-
eration on Average Farm
The advlco commonly given In poul-
try papers would rcqulro one to oxer-
clso nearly as much pains In tho
cleaning of a chicken houso as in the
cleaning of a kitchen. Such advlco
may be suitable for tbo city poultry
fanciers but some of It is out of place
when given to tho farmer. Poultry

gestions of the theoretical poultry
The caso with which tho premises
may bo kept reasonably frco from Ut-
ter nnd filth Is a largely a matter of
convenient arrangoment. Tho handi-
est plan from this viewpoint is the
colony Bystem. In this tho houses
nro moved to new locations as tho
ground becomes soiled. If the chicken
house Is a stationary structure It
should bo built away from other
buildings scrap-piles fence corners
etc. oo that tho ground can bo fre-
quently freshened by plowing and
sowing In oats ryo or rape. The
ground should be well sloped so that
the water draining from tho eurfaco
may wash away much of the filth
that on level ground would nccumu-
lato. Cleanliness Indoors can be
simplified by propor arrangement
First the houso must be dry. Poultry
droppings when dry are not n source
of danger If kept out of the feed.
This may bo accomplished by pro-
viding dropping boards under tho
roosts. Tho droppings In tho poultry
bouse should be removed often enough
to prevent foul odors. It is beBt to
clean It every day. Dry earth .gath-
ered In the fall and stored In bins Is
an excellent cleansing agent to uso
on tho dropping board of the chicken
bouse. Drinking vessels should bo
rinsed out when refilled and not al-
lowed to accumulate a coat of slime.

able diseases and lists of remedies

MAINTAIN PURITY OF BREEDS
Dairy Type Is Spare and Angular With
Soft Pliable Hide and Covered
With Soft Smooth Hair.
(By J. If. nUNDBEN rrofeaaor of
Dairy Husbandry University of Ne-
braska.) A comparison of tho beef and dairy
types of animal Is perhaps the most
effective way of showing what are tho
distinct dairy characteristics. Tho
beef Is generally henvy and sluggish
while the dairy animal Is sparo nnd an-
gular and refined with a soft and pita-
bio hide well covered wltb smooth soft
hair. The head Is lean and a llttlo

neck Is long and lean Joining to the
body rather abruptly. Tho withers
aro sharp with the spinal column
prominent and the barrel long and ca-
pacious Indicating good feeding capa-
city. The ribs are sprung down and
outward and wide spaced the heart
and loin girth large and the tall Ana
with a heavy switch. The form of the"
dairy cow Is frequently spoken of as
tho "triple wedge" form. First she
shows Increased depth of body to-
wards the rear when viewed from ono
side. Secondly she widens gradually
from the breast to the points of the
hips. Thirdly looking down on the
back the form widens gradually down-
ward llko a wedge. The udder Is
well developed and even quartered; la
soft and pliable but not flabby when
emptied. Tho milk veins are large
and tortuous and enter the abdominal
wall In two or more large milk veins.
The dairy type can be found In
many of the breeds but most charac
teristically tn the distinct dairy
breeds. l)y tho dairy breeds are meant
those that have become most noted
for uniformly conforming to tho true
dairy type. They are tho Ilolstelns
Jerseys Guernseys and Ayrshlrcs.
Owing to the careful work of tho
breeders in maintaining tbo purity of
the breeds and fixing their character-
istics these breeds can In most cases
be counted on to reproduce their dairy
qualities and their ability to produce
butter-fat. In large quantities. It is
largely for this reason that the dairy-
man who desires success to follow hit
efforts should stick close to one of
the dairy breeds.
