To succeed with thu work of the
hatching season one must be all ready
for It beforo It commences. I'tnns
must bo laid several months ahead
and all tho actual work posilblo got
well under way so that one's time may
not ho too crowded to allow- him to
glvo attention to the many unforsecn
taskH that aro suro to bob up serenely
as tho season progresses
Thu first thing to consider Is. of
course tho kind of stock from which
tho egga aro to cotno for setting
Whcro the selection of fowls has been
mado In tho fall as recommended In n
former article this part of the work
la practically finished Still even In
a small flock where nil the fowls are

ones to choose for breeders.
Suppose that In your Hook of ten you
liavo ono that Ib n better layer truer to

than the rest. Tho dlffercnco may bo
slight yet thero is n difference In her
favor It Is thu wisest thing you can
do to put thin hen by herself or to use
n trap nest to bo suro of her eggs nnd
then Keep her chicks sepnrntu or
marked so that you ran tell them read-
ily Prom these. In turn solert the
best and In a few years you will hnvo

tlon has been paid to thu close selec-
tion of breeders
Tlil. does not mean of course that
you Hhuuld sot no other eggs than
thoao from tho best hen Yoii may
hnvo n very fine Hock all through and
may get many good clilcKn from any
of them Hut If you Keep weeding out
nil but tho very lies'. In time you will
get to tho place whcro you will have
no Inferior stock nnd then jou will be-
gin to renp tho rewnrd of your p.t
This selection cannot be done In n
week or even In n month You will
have to keep watch of your hens for n
long tlmo before you can decide with
a certainty which you want to breed
from. Often the fowlB you expect tho
must from will disappoint you In Home
Tho next step Is the selection of tho
eggs themselves Not every egg even
from tho best hens Is usable for
hatching. He careful not to use eggs
that nro either too largo or too small.
Watch your layers until jou havu de-
termined about what n good average-
sired egg should be and then liso

then pick out those that nro ns near
It as poslsble
Tho shells should show neither spots
or ridges These usually mark thin
places and such eggs nro likely to
get broken In the nest Choose only
those which nro smooth and perfect.
Tho llrst eggs laid by pullets are not
ns good as those laid after they havo
been nt work two or throe months
Hatter still nro tho eggs from hens a
year old While tho pullet Is develop-
ing much of her vitality must go to
her own growth and tho egg Is not
likely to produce a strdirg vigorous
chick. Tho older ft'l having at-
tained her full growth and vigor has
moro strength to sparo for her eggs.
Kggs which havo to bo kept awhile
before setting should be turned every
day to keep tho yolk from settling.
The fresher they are at setting the
better. Kggs that have been shipped
should always be allowed to stand for
at least twenty-four hours before set-
tins. (Ireat care must be taken that eggs
Intended for hstchlng should not chill.
In cold weather they should be gath-
ered twice every day and then kept
where tho temperature Is well above

Important as wrong feeding at first Is

" And the doctor says he'll never
be able to como to work again."
The ending of Daniel Patterson's
story fell with dismal effectiveness up-
on tho cars of Abner his brother. Old
Kph Jones who had kept tho books
for the Importing Arm ever since Its
Inception by Hiram Patterson tho fa-
ther of the two brothers bad beon dis-
abled by old age.
Of course he would be pensioned
but the question was who would take
his place' Tho Patterson business
was on old fashioned one trading with
a few- wealthy old-fashioned families.
Thero was nothing modern about tho
little warehouse. turkiil nunv In nn
. . 4
obscure corner of the downtown sec-
tion of tho metropolis. A hustling
' young American would have been like
a bull in a china shop
As n matter of fact tho Patterson
( business barely paid Its way Hut
the brothers had amassed a comfor-
table fortune. Daniel the elder was
a llttlo over fifty Abner his brother
who was always regarded as the reck-
less one was forty-fhe. lloth were
confirmed bachelors and If they had
given Mp business neither wotld have
known what to do with himself
"We'll have to aderti!o for a book-
keeper said Abner after a consultn-
) tlon. "A quiet dignified young woman-
' "WomanI" yelled Daniel In horror.
"Why women mako tho best book-
keepers" answered Abner "They're
honest er nnd they attend to business
where a man would be thinking all the
tlmo of-of sports and moving pic-
tures and and horse racing "
This was the climax of wickedness
In both tho brothers' eyes. So In the
end the experiment of a woman book-
keeper was reluctantly decided on.
And thus In duo course of time. Miss
Marjory Drown took her sent nt tho
desk behind tho grille and began to
take financial charge of the brothers
Doth Abner and Daniel had antici-
pated n troublesome tlmo In posting
"We Want You to Stay With Us For
her ns to tho affairs of tho house but
to their delight Mlsi Brown proved as
Intelligent as she was attractive. In
fact If either Abner or Daniel had
known Just how attractive Miss Hrowu
was It Is probable that they would
timorously have decided to seek else-
whero for a bookkeeper. When Miss
Drown answered their advertisement
her long dark hair was tightly colled
on thu top of her head nnd bIio wore
a prim tnllor-inade suit; but after the
first week Miss Brown's hair was
fashionably cotffured and her dresses
though simple were of that fashion-
able aspect which Is commonly termed
"stunning." And within a month Miss
Mnrjory Drown ruled tho ofTlco with
a rod of Iron.
Abner who hnd acquired tho habit
of lingering a llttlo too long over Ills
lunch would slink Into tho ofllca on
his return In order to avoid Miss
llrown's reproachful eyes Ad for Dan-
iel If he took a into train nnd turned
up nt ten Instead of at nine llftecu ho
hnrdly dared givo Miss Hrown Instruc-
tions during tho rest of thu forenoon.
"Abner" paid Daniel ono daj' "I
withdraw what I said ngalust women
bookkeepers Miss Hrown Is n or
a er peaclj!"
no Hissed tnn word at tils brother
nnd then looked at him as ono who
has committed a breach of decorum.
Hut Abner only nodded IiIh head and
then Daniel looked nt him quite dif-
ferently 1 hat Abner should hold tho
same opinion of Miss Hrown roused a
curious sensation In him.
From that time onward each broth-
er watched tho other narrowly when
ho was .alklng to Miss Drawn.
"Abner" snld Daniel "what would
we do If she left us?"
"Left us!" echoed Abner. "Why
should she leave us?"
"Well er she might get married
you know" suggested Daniel.
"I guess we'd betterv raise her sal-
ary then" replied Abner.
So Miss Drown was duty raised from
fifteen to twenty dollars a week to
lure her away trom matrimonial as-
pirations. Dut that was In tbe good times be-
fore tho panic. Then business grew
worse and worse and as Is always
the case the trade In luxuries was tbe
first to suffer. The business ftll oS
to almost nothing. It became a case
or closing the warehouse or selling
rarities at a price which would -hate
swept away half the brothers' for-
tune. "Abner" said Daniel "Miss Hrown
will have to go. You give her notlco."
"Why don't jou give her notice?'
answered Abner. "You aro tho senior
partner" Ho had observed that Dan-
iel had grown much moro formal with
Miss Drown of late.
"Hut you aro a man of the world
Abner" urged Daniel. "You havo had
er experience In theaa matters.
Tell her Abner that we may take
her back If wo re-open."
"Take her back!" repeated Abner
scornfully. "Why. Daniel she will
havo another position then. Dow
could wo get her back?"
"Hut nobody except Miss Hrown
could understand our system" lament-
ed Daniel "Wo should havo to train
a now bookkeeper and all ho uld
think about would bo moving plcturo
bIiows and horso racing. Abner you
tell Miss Hrown."
So Abner very reluctantly edged
bis way toward the grille
"Miss Hrown" ho began "I am very
Borry to say that I that is the firm
I mean wo nro going to closo down
c;rhaps for n long time."
As ho looked at Miss Marjory Hrown
Abner suddenly became awaro that
for tho first time In months ho was
able to do bo without Daniel coming
In to call him Daniel had always
hated to havo him talk to tho book-
keeper And now ho camo to think
of it ho hated to have Daniel talk
to her too. Tho chance night never
occur again. Miss llrown's bnlr had
auburn tints among Its shadowy
tresses. Miss Hrown's figure wns di-
vine. Miss Hrown reminded him of
somebody ho had once known when
ho really war. tho reckless member
of tho family. And suddenly Abner
wns swept away Into doing tho most
reckless thing that ho had ever dono.
"Hut wo want you to stay with us
for ever" he stammered. "We want
jou to be ct er wife."
Miss Hrown's cheeks became tho
color of n ruddy peach.
"Whoso wife did you say Mr. Ab-
ner" Bho murmured looking down at
"My wife!" ejaculated Abner tak-
ing tho ledger brazenly away
"I know jou couldn't mean Mr. Dan-
iel's wife" murmured Miss Hrown flvo
"Wh j dearest?" Inquired Abner
"Hecnuso I refused him two months
ngo" answered Miss Hrown.
