SELF-FEEDER FOR POULTRY
Automatic Device Shown In Illustra-
tion Allows Fowls to Balance
Their Own Ration.
With the automatic feeder herewith
Illustrated, the fowls can balance their
own ration. It saves care and work
for the poultryman. In winter the
compartments should be kept filled
■with crushed oyster shells, _ meat
scraps, cut clover and ground feed.
Grit can be kept In the feeder or fed
separately from a smaller one-compart-
ment feeder, and whole grain should
be fed In straw to induce exercise.
In summer when fowls are on free
range, whole grains can be kept In the
automatic feeder Instead of the clover
and ground mixture.
It can be made exactly of the di-
mensions and plan In the cut, or the
Idea can be adopted with modifica-
tions, writes J. G. Allshouse In the
Farm and Home. There are four
equal compartments, three having
openings 8x10 Inches and one 5x5
Inches, the latter for crushed shells.
Openings for scraps and ground feed
are covered with three-eighths-inch
mesh netting, and those for shells and
clover with one-half-inch mesh.
When used for whole-grain feeding,
strips of wood can be tacked over part
of openings if grain feeds too freely.
The cover and bottom slant as illus-
trated, and cover Is hinged at lower
edge. The trough in front is one and
one-half inches deep, and a narrow
wooden strip should project over into
trough about an inch to prevent the
feed being wasted. Cover the bot-
tom of trough with tin.
Results of Series of Tests Made With
Hatching Eggs by the Pennsyl-
At the Pennsylvania station a series
of experiments in incubation were con-
ducted from which the following con-
clusions were drawn:
Under natural conditions eggs not
promptly incubated are subject to dally
warming by contact with the hen’s
body which appears to have an impor-
tant influence on the life and vigor of
the embryo chick.
Warming for 60 minutes gives better
result than for 30 or 120.
Eggs held for Incubation gave better
results when laid flat and turned daily.
No especial difference due to posi-
tion was noted in eggs held for less
than 16 to 18 days.
In both tests poorest results were
secured with eggs placed on end and
turned daily, ae compared with eggs
laid flat, or placed on either end and
Influence of age of eggs on hatch-
ability varied greatly, presumably due
to season or conditions of breeding
Washing eggs for hatching material-
ly reduced hatchabillty.
Eggs placed on end in incubator for
first three days of incubation suffered
no perceptible injury.
Eggs turned twice daily generally
gave better results than those turned

PROVED TRUTH OF ADAGE
Conscientious Philippine Judge Would
Have No Doubt as to Owner-
ship of Clothes.
An officer of the war department
who has seen service in the Philip-
pines, tells a curious story as to the
native Ideas of justice in those is-
An American had come home one
day Just In time to witness a thief in
the act of climbing out of a window
with the better part of the American’s
wardrobe. The latter gave chase so
earnestly that the thief wae finally
obliged to drop the clothing bo that
he might run the faster. He soon dis-
appeared from sight. The American
gathered up his belongings. Just then
along came a native policeman who
proceeded to place the American un-
der arrest, since he acted in a most
To the local magistrate before
whom he was haled the American
told his story very plainly and em-
phatically. When he had concluded
the Filipino judge said: "You are
dismissed, but you may leave the
"Why?” demanded the American.
"For this reason,” answered the
magistrate, with the air of a sage,
"that it is uncertain that you epeak
the truth. When the thief returns to
identify these clothes as the ones he
stole, you may have them.”—The
Story Seems to Show Fact That

William Phelps Eno, who devised
the system of traffic regulations now
practised in New York, and who has
been called the “father of street traf-
fic regulation,” had a hard time at first
impressing his ideas on public officials.
Foreign cities appreciated them more
than American cities. Paris, threat-
ened with a strike of the cab drivers
unless the system of Eno were put in
effect, adopted it. Then Buenos Ayres
sent for Mr. Eno, asked him to work
out a plan for its traffic, and agreed to
every suggestion he .made.
A year or two later Mr. Eno was
introduced, as a traffic regulation au-
thority, to a much-traveled resident of
The globe-trotter shook hands with
him, and then said in a rather patron-
"If you want to know what’s what In
a street-traffic system, Mr. Eno, you
ought to see the way they do the trick
in Buenos Ayres.”
Carmen Sylva, queen of Roumania,
who is now a fellow of the Royal So-
ciety of Literature, visited Ireland
thirty years ago. On landing at Kings-
town, her majesty wae met by the fa-
mous newsvendor, Davy Stephens,
who greeted her with, “All hail, Car-
men Sylva! Sure, there never was a
country In the world where your maj-
esty could meet a finer lot of boys of
your Christian name.”
The queen smiled, accepted a copy
of his biography, and gave him half a
sovereign. Whereupon Davy, turning
to the cab rank, joyfully exclaimed,
‘It’s a mistake, boys. Sure it's Car-
men Gold she should be called.”
A story is told on a young man who
was married recently to the daughter
of a wealthy merchant. The bride-
groom did not have a cent, but he
made up for lack of wealth in honesty.
He was so very honest that he would
not even prevaricate in the marriage
He was repeating what the minister
read: “With all my worldly goods 1
“With all thy worldly goods I me
endow,” repeated the young man. May-
be it was a slip of the tongue, still it
would be hard for honesty to go much
further.—New York Times.
Professor Gives Several Hints, Worth
Consideration, on Conservation
The first consideration of the build-
ers of schools, churches, factories and
theaters should be for the eyes and
eyesight of the persons who will use
these buildings, according to Dr. Clar-
ence Loeb of St. Louis, who spoke re-
cently on ’’The Conservation of Vi-
sion.” Doctor Loeb, assistant profes-
sor of ophthalmology In St. Louis uni-
versity, gave this lecture as one of a
series under the aueplces of the
American Medical association, which

One person out of every 1,000 Is
blind and five per cent of these cases
of blindness are hereditary, according
to Doctor Loeb. It has been found by
statistics that 58 per cent of the chil-
dren of parents afflicted with cataract
of the eye are also afflicted. Besidee
cataract, there are 11 other diseases
of the eye that are hereditary.
A common means of carrying eye
infection, according to Doctor Loeb, is
the roller towel. Books also are tran-
mltters of Infection.
Industrial accidents to the eye are
common, such as injuries likely to hap-
pen to the eye of lye workers, glass
blowers, etone workers, masons and
steel and Iron workers. These workers
should be made to wear goggles or put
a screen between their work and their
eyes, the speaker said.—University

DISFIGURED WITH PIMPLES
R. F. D. No. 2, Box 46, Matthews,
Ga.—“For three years or more I was
troubled with pimples and blackheads.
At first my face would Itch and burn
and then the pimples would break out.
They looked almost as If I had meas-
les, causing great disfigurement. They
would make my face very red and
sore. Then they festered and came to
a head and large bolls would come on
my chin and nose.
"I also had dandruff which caused
my scalp to Itch and burn. It Itched
and burned so that I had to scratch It
until it was irritated. The dandruff
scaled off and showed plainly In my
hair. It also caused my hair to
break off and become very thin. I

Love of the Forest.
The only way to love the forest Is
to stay in it, until you have learned
its pathless travel, growth and inhabi-
tants ae you know the fields. You
must begin at the gate and find your
way slowly, else you will not hear the
great secret and see the compelling
vision. There are trees you never be-
fore have seen, flowers and vines the
botanists fail to mention, and such
music as your ears cannot hear else-
where.—Gene Stratton Porter.
8ucces«ful Brooding It 8ubject That
Needs More Attention Than Given
it by Poultryman.
Don't try to raise early chicks un-
less you have a place to properly care
for them. It Is a waste of time and
money. A good many think if they
can hatch the chicks, brooding them is
a small matter. Such Is not the case.
Brooding the early chicks successfully
Is a subject that needs more attention
than Is usually given It. Hatching
early chicks ie comparatively easy.
To artificially brood the early-
hatched chicks successfully, warm
comfortable quarters that are not sub-
ject to sudden change of fitful winter
and early Bpring weather must be pro-
vided. More people fall In the brood-
ing than in the hatching, and no doubt
for the reason stated. Give the brood-
ing more attention and see If the re-
sult will not be better.
Stranger—How odd. Why are all

ate upon the streets.
