medicine, back in 1875, the needs for a
laxative wer^ not as great as today.
People lived normal lives, ate plain,
wholesome food, and got plenty of fresh
air. But even that early there were
drastic physics and purges for the relief
of constipation which Dr. Caldwell did
not believe were good for human beings.
The prescription for constipation that
he used early in his practice, and which
he put in drug store® in 1892 under the
name of Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin,
is a liquid vegetable remrfy, intended
for women, children and elderly people,
and they need just such a mild,
This prescription has proven it* worth'

Blackhead of turkeys is one of the
most dreaded diseases of this class of
poqltry, but destructive .as it is, the
trouble may be controlled.
“We find that blackhead is caused
by an animal germ,” says Dr. B. F.
Kaupp, head of the poultry department
at state college. “It generally attacks
young turkeys from five to seven
weeks of age on up until they mature.
To tell definitely whether a bird has
blackhead, one has but to open a
dead bird and if blackhead is present,
the liver will appear to be spotted. If
the liver be cut through, these sr>ots
of dead tissue will be found scattered
throughout. To prevent future spread
of the trouble, the eggs for hatching
should be soaked for ten minutes in a
1 to 10,000 solution of bichloride of
mercury and hatched in an incubator
or by a turkey hen away from chick
ens. Where blackhead is not on the
premises, these precautions are not
necessary. A drug called sulpho-
phenol may also be used. Always give
the birds all the buttermilk or soured
skim milk that they will drink. This
tones up the general health condi
To learn more of the real nature of
; this disease. Doctor Kaupp will begin
; field studies with turkeys in the four
j mountain counties of Ashe, Madison,
j Jackson and Avery. Tliese four coun
ties ba^’e many turkeys and the owners
have suffered losses in the past by
reason ot the blackhead trouble. Doc
tor Kaupp states that all the exper
imental work will be conducted under
actual farm conditions and he hopes
to find definite and practical control
or preventative methods which may be
used by all farmers.
Turkey-growing offers good profits,
especially to the grower who Is pre
pared to put first-class birds on the
market at Thanksgiving and Christ
mas. Tliere are many successful tur
key farmers in various parts of North
Carolina and if it is possible to find a
practical control for bJackhead, the In
dustry should easily become more

Runner Ducks Classed
as Heavj' Egg Layers!
Runner ducks are classed as laying j
ducks and are the only breed recog-!
nized in that classification. In maby
Instances Runners have produced as
njaoy eggs .is chickens. If managed j
properly ducks of this breed may be
expected to lay almost as well as hens.
These ducks are small in size, the
males weighing four to four and one- i
half pounds and the females three |
and a half to four pounds. In spite 1
of the fact that they are heavy lay
ers they mature quite rapidly and ,
make good broilers. They are killed^
for this purpose when they weigh I
about two and a half to three pounds.
These ducks are long and narrow bod
ied. The body Is carried very erect.
There are three varieties of Runner!
ducks: Fawn and White Runners,!
Penciled Runners, and White Run-!
ners. In all three varieties the mat-i
ings are made In the proportion of one
j drake to each six or eight ducks. j

A point to kee^ in mind In feeding!
masb to the turkey.s is that they need
the vitamine D provided by a good j _
high-grade cod-liver oil just as badly C
as do chickens.
Most turkey raisers will wish toi
hatch the eggs in an Incubator and!
brood the poults artificially. By doing j
this they can keep the turkey hens|
in production almost continuously. !
* * * I
There’s no better feed for young |
poults than plenty of sour milk. Feed
five times daily at first, but don’t over
feed, and be sure to keep grit, char
coal and clean water before them at
Build open sheds for turkeys to
roost under as soon as they begin to
want to fly up to roost.
• • *
Keep young turkeys shut up until
one week old: Then turn out for a few
hours each day during the warm part
of the day until they are two weeks
• • •
Each turkey egg is worth a great
deal more than a single chicken egg,
and because of this fact the loss is
greater when the eggs do not hatch
or when they- hatch into weak turkeys.
* * *
Start birds on bran and clabber
mash if possible; otherwise, use corn
* • *
Don’t try a late hatch unless you
have separate enclosure for these late
^turkeys. Two ages of turkeys don’t
mix any better than two ages of chick

Usually it is necessary to use one
gander to every three or four geese.
A young gander will do provided he
Is fully matured. Geese may be tu|ned
out in any moderately cold weather.
