A SEVERE FIRE,

Salisbury was:yisited by. a fire

The fire statted on' the roof of a
building occupied by Hartmau &
Gaither who manufacture crates.
A strong wind was blowing and if
was only a short while until the
small blaze, was-fanned into a se-'

house used by the Barber Buggy &
Wagon Company, soon took " fire
and was destroyed. The flames
made a jump to a warehouse used
by George Martin for tne-, storage
of cement, etc., andrseverai build

The fire worked over to the ware
house of the Frick Company and
was stopped here, HacU-it not

of be town .on the other side of

The firemen did fine work and
they deserve much credit- for the
way they handled the fire. Their

Hartman & Gaither had a lot of

To Qe Lots of Er.
A. P. Ancier of Eartville, N.YM gives
the following rules for producing heavy
egg returns: In the morning feed' a
mash composed of ground corn, oata,
wheat, clover and green bone, Just what
they will eat up clean, and later throw
into the litter a little wheat or millet
for which they will have to scratch.
At noon give steamed clover with mid
dlings, at night, cracked corn, .wheat
and barley, all they will clean up at
onceC Never feed more than they will
eat immediately. Suspend a head of
cabbage in the pen for them to pick
at during the day. You will besur
prised at the amount of green food they
will eat during the-winter season. A
most excellent green food for all kinds
of fowls is Dwarf Essex rape. Sow the
poultry yards to rape In winter and
when the snow Is off give the fowls
free access to It and your eggs will
practically all be fertile.
Negro Barter Dies Suddenly. ? :

-The Season's Fertility.
Nothing we can add will throw jshe
xf light on the season's fertUfty of
eggs-nor-natcnmg topic, dui tor reaaet
may hare faith enough tofead of a-
few instances that we jr mention
even after m make the above admis
sion, says Aaeff&n Poultry Journal.
Those who are among the poultrymen
report low fertility. In some western
yards the fertility has been high all
season, but to balance this comes the
report from down east that over half
the shipments are failures. Every
season has its good and. bad hatches
and yet no statistician has had - the
colossal nerve required to gather data
on- the subject Lately we noted that
a shipment -of eggs from Scotland
hatched better than 40 per cent. This
is remarkable, though the eggs were
extra well packed.
For Quality Ears.
The day of the market poultryman is
dawning, for now the big egg buyers
demand eggs by the dozen instead of
by the case. Buying by case means
accepting good, bad and rotten; buy
ing by the dozen means that eggs are
candled and poor ones not paid for.
This aids the pooltryman who desires
to work up a high class demand for a
strictly fancy product. The largest
buyers of eggs now demand quality
before quantity, and they pay good,
liberal margins over the market price to
get what they want Clean, fresh eggs
are what they demand, and they soon
cut from their lists the ones who for
ward the inferior stuff along with the
good. ' .
Iioolc Out For the Mites Now. r,
By cleaning the fowl house and
painting the roost with some good
liquid lice killer at least oncea week,
being careful to reach all nooks, cran
nies and corners or roosts and nest
boxes, one may prevent mites. As in
every other eviVthe thing to do is to
prevent Let mites once get a foothold
lu your house , and you have trouble
without end getting, rid of them.
"Sports" Axnonsr Pure Breds.
The Silver Laced Wyandottes, like
any other standard variety of fowls,
are liable to throw "sports but no one
can tell what the percentage would be
to 100 chicks. In fact, there might not
be one to 1,000, and there might be sev
eral to a hundred. All varieties of
poultry are more or less difBcult to
breed to standard requirements. Vi

about where the chicks could pick at t
and found that it worked wonders in
checking bowel trouble in chicks. Dry
bran is most excellent for both young
and old fowls and acts as a sort of
stimulant to egg production. Give it a
trial if you have not done so already.
