ENTERTAINING AT HOME
Sharing the delights of home with
guests is one of the oldest forms
of hospitality. The hostess who puts
so much effort into preparing for
guests 'that she cannot enter into
the spirit . of the occasion is violat
ing the first rule of etiquette.
Sometimes the hostess doubts her
knowledge of the rules for enter
taining and worries .so much about
imagned short comings that the
guests become infected with the
spirit of unrest. A hostess should
understand that her guests have a
right to expect a smiling welcome
and that she, by her gracious man
ners, make those under her roof
feel that they, arc partners in an
adventure of good fellowship. The
hostess, however, is not the only
one to remember proper entertain
ing etiquette. Hospitality imposes
obligations on the guests as well
as the hostess. Guests should be
thoughtful and considerate of the
rules and regulations of a house
hold wherein they are being en
tertained. The foundation of all en
tertaining is to be thoughtful and
considerate of the feelings of oth
ers. It is a hard task on any hostess
to be serene and smiling when a
guest has kept a meal waiting un
til it is spoiled.
Children should be taught enter
taining etiquette almost from their
cradle, and also the rules for being
looked-forward-to and pleasantly
remembered afterwards by guests.
There is nothing more pleasant
nor anything that gives one a
warm feeling of good fellowship
like being entertained in a home
where every member of that home
is cooperating' to make every one
happy and at case. While on the
other hand there is nothing so un
pleasant as being in a home where
no one regards the slightest feel
ings of the other members' of the
household and no law or order of
etiquette is ever regarded.
Let us club sisters try the harder
to make our, homes a place where
we ourselves get as much joy out
of our entertaining as we hope to
impart to our guests.

Worms probably cause more loss
to poultrymcn than any other one
thing. This is especially true where
the poultryman is the least bit
Symptoms: Birds infested with
worms will have an unthrifty ap
pearance and light in weight, usual
ly they will be pale around the
head and shanks. The eyes are
usually discolored and sometimes
go blind. The birds sometimes go
lame or become weak in the legs.
Round Worms : The large round
worm is a whitish, round worm
from xi to 4 inches in length. Each
female worm is capable of laying
thousands of eggs which pass out
of . the bird's body in the droppings.
Jf there is not plenty, of good dry
litter on the floor these eggs will
hatch and be eaten by the bird and
immediately develop into a mature
worm. The intestines will soon be
come clogged with worms and the
birds will die.
Tape Worms: Tape worms arc of
two kinds. The small tape worm
found in the upper intestines. Both
are flat, segmented, white worms,
The head of the tapeworm is very
small and is burried in the walls of
the intestines. Each segment is fill
ed with eggs. A segment will break
off, pass out of the bird and when
eaten by flies or snails, will pass
out of them and then are ready to
reinfest the bird.
Sanitation: Prevention is the
most important step in the control
of the parasites. Strict sanitation
must be practiced at all times. Keep
plenty of good dry litter in the
house. Change this litter often.
Keep clean range. Use hydrated
lime on the ground .where the
birds use the most. Keep down
flics just as much as possible.
Treatment: For round worms a
round worm capsule can be given.
Fqr tapeworms a tapeworm capsule
can be given. A combination cap
sule can be given for both worms.
The 'first treatment should be when
the birds are around 12 weeks old.
Another treatment should be ivcn
just before the birds go into lay.
Take birds off feed for a day,, give
the capsules at night, keeping them
up the next day and night, then
clean the house and destroy the
Keep a good balanced ration be
fore the birds at all times. This
develops a strong vitality to with
stand disease and parasites. Keep
birds properly housed. Give each
bird at least 4 square feet of floor
space. Crowded birds arc .usually
low in vitality. Poultry is profitable
if properly managed, but an ex
pense if improperly managed.

Timely Farm Questions
Q. How can I cure colds in my
A. Colds usually are caused by
overcrowding, chilling, ovr-heating,
an unbalanced diet, or a drafty
house and the first step should be
to find the cause and correct it.
The worst cases should be destroy
ed and Epsom salts given to the
remaining .birds at the rate of
one-half pound to each two and
one-half gallons of drinking water.
This should be kept before the
birds for one day" and a suitable
germicide kept in the drinking wat
er while there is evidence of the
trouble. Uusually an . out-break of
colds runs its course and if good
management and sanitation is prac
ticed only a few birds are lost.
Q. In topping tobacco, how many
leaves should oc left on the stalk?
A. This depends to a great ex
tent upon soil conditions and the
amount of fertilizer used. On the
average soils of the state, tobacco
will mature when IS to 18 leaves
are left on the stalk. On poorer
soils the plant should Ie topped
lower and on the richer soils it
should be topped higher. Be sure
and begin topping just as soon as
the seed parts of the plant begin
to show. The tobatfeo will run up
enough to top every three days
and should be topped as uniformly
as possible-so that the plants will
mature more evenly.
Q. Should silage be , used f6r
feeding dairy animals in the sum
A Silage has its place in summer
feeding only as a supplement to
short pasture. Where the silage
crops yield well they furnish' a
cheaper and more convenient sup
plement to the short pasture than
do soiling crops. Where it is avail
able, it is also well to feed a rea
sonable ainount in the morning for
the first several days .after cows
are turned oh pasture. This is ad
visable even with an abundance of
grazing as it prevents the animals
from gorging on the tender, watery
grass which tends to scour them.
