Keep the dust box supplied with
nice clean dust, and see that the grit

Keeping many breeds is a poor way
to succeed. Get down to one or two
varieties and give them the best of
If the hens were compelled to work
a little harder these days for what
grain they get, it would be a good
thing for them.
As the new corn gets dry and hard
it is safe to feed more than when it
was soft and green. It is more easily
digested and gives better results.
Never feed meat scraps that were
made of rotten meat. Good, pure feed
is the only thing that ever ought to
be fed to a fowl of any kind.
During winter the drinking vessels
must be emptied each evening; it is
much easier to do that than it is to
break a solid cake of ice in them the
If it possibly can be done, clean up
the droppings each day. It is work
that woll repays one. Never allow
this cleaning to be delayed longer than
Leaving the birds to fight their own
battles Agaiast lice and other enemies
may save some work, but it will coBt
some eggs; and eggs are worth money
Do not delay any longer the job'of
culling out the poor stock. It is a mis-
take to keep even a single unprofit-
able fowl. Have the stock up in qual-
ity rather than in quantity.
If the hens are fed hot corn for
supper, they will go to bed happy
these cold winter nights. Feed it just
as hot as they can eat it comfortably.
Shell some in a baking-pan and stir
and heat it in the oven.
As the weather grows colder, in-
crease the supply of corn. It is a heat-
ing food. Hut never feed it alone.
A good grain mixture for winter is
two parts whole corn, one part each
wheat and oats; all well mixed.
Many hens never know what it is
to be comfortable from one end of the
winter to the other, except on a day
when it thaws. You can not expect
hens to do well under such conditions.
To do well they must be comfortable.
The worst thing is to make poultry
drink ice-cold water; chills them clear
through. They must warm that water
before the work of digestion can go
on again. Warm the water for them
—not hot, but just comfortably warm.
Start up the trap nests. They are
invaluable in pointing out the produc-
tive hens as well as the drones. They
make it possible, by picking out the
poor layers, to get more eggs from a
fewer number of hens. That is econ-
omy—it saves feed and it gives the
workers more room.
It is a good rule to keep fowls in-
doors during rainy, snowy or windy
weather. While the rains during the
summer will do no harm to the fowls,
the cold rains of winter are injurious.
Exposing fowls to bad woikther is but
to invite sickness. Therefore, the
more room in the hen house, the more
contented will be fowls be when con-
At this time of the year colds may
develop in the flock. It is always best
to nip these in the bud. In the first
stages a one-grain quinine pill each
night for a week will be found effec-
tive. Remove the fowl to separate
and dry quarters. Generally in a week
the cold will have disappeared. Colds
are caused by exposure, or by closely-
built houses, or by overcrowded flocks,
making the fowls sweat at night while
on the roost and chill when they leave
their perch the next morning. Have
litter in the house, throwing the grain

"What is ex-Governor Haskell going
That is a question that is being free
ly asked by business men and citizens
of Muskogee today, and so far no an-
swer has been given.
The governor retired from offi at
noon today, and is again a private cit
izen, and a resident of Muskogee—we
hope. But there does not appear to
be anybody who knows whether he is
going to live in Muskogee or some-
where else. There was no inform a
tion forthcoming about the matter at
the office of the Indianola Contracting
company this morning, and the India-
nola is the governor's business office
in Muskogee. Conversation with some
of the men who havo been his closest
business associates here failed to
throw any light on the matter.
Of course the big question is wheth-
er Haskell will remain in politics or
whether ho will go into big business
again? Ho has intimated on many oc-
casions that ho considered Muskogee
his home and that he Intended to step
into the Indianola office at the Turner
hotel as soon as he was out of office
and begin where he left off Just prior
to the formation of the constitutional
convention. People in Oklahoma City
are just as confident that He intends
to open offices and engage in business
of some kind there. At the recent
meeting of the State Bar association
the governor, in a speech at the ban-
quet, made ;i statement «<> the effect
that he might, after closing his term of
office, become an active member of
the bar of the state.
it is known, however, that the gov-
ernor now has offers, with contracts
from a number of lecture bureaus of-
fering him big inducements for a se-
ries of lectures, covering a period of
six months. The fact that the supreme
court of the United States upheld the
guaranty bank law which Haskell
created and made a national issue, and
incidentally an epoch in the financial
history of the country, has greatly in-
creased his value as a lecturer. And
it is well known that Haskell can
iill any auditorium at any time he
;iKr< i s to sp« ak. The governor stated
a short time ago that he expected to
"rest'' for six months after he got out
of office, but "rest" is rather an am-
biguous term as the governor applies
it. He also stated that he wanted to
travel some. So there is a belief in
certain quarters that he will spend a
few months on the lecture platform,
and that until surh engagements are
closed he will not publicly announce
his plans, political or otherwise, nor
will he settle down in Oklahoma City
or Muskogee permanently until that
time. The governor has a habit of
making his home in a hotel, so that
moving is not such an Important mat-
ter in that sense as it is to a great

The "old cat died" for several county
officials, and Monday morning new
faces were in a number of the offices.
Superior Judge A. N. Munden com
pleted the business of his office about
4; 30 Saturday afternoon with some
work in chambers. Then he went to

thing stronger—and went home to his

eration. Edward I). Oldfield was only

Superior Court Clerk W. C. Hughes
turned over his office to James Beatty
County Superintendent Mrs. Mary
Couch turned over her office to Mrs.
Annie Burke Love, as also did County
Attorney E. E. Reardon to his succes-
sor, County Judge Sam Hooker. Rear-
don's chief assistant, John W. Iiayson,
took charge of the Judgeship vacated
by Hooker. Assistant Attorney A. T.
Boys established a law office but he
has been so busy for the past two
weeks that he has not had time to
move his books nor to rent an office.
He closed 1 is official duties last night

Attorney Gray will open a law office

trict court clerk during the years that

entire state, gives up the place to R.

Kets only a straight salary.
Sheriff Harvey Garrison turned over
the office he was given by the com-
missioners upon the killing of his
j father by Alf Hunter, to Jack Spain.
1 Spain has not announced his deputies.
Jailer Sam Bartel turned over the
j keya to some one selected by Sheriff
Spain. Some time ago Spain notified
Bartel he wanted him to remain in
charge, but it is supposed the republi-
cans who placed Spain in office raised
a rather strenuous objection to such a
program, and he changed it in defer-
ence to their wishes. Bartel is out of
th - city but will be back Tuesday.
Register of Deeds J. S. Coates, Coun-
ty Clerk J. W. Riley, and County
