morning- and hear several old hens
cackling, and several old roosters u-j
crowing and a few old mommer

Well, everything was getting,
along fine till one day last weok.j
Prom 23 hens, we were gathering up i
between 3 and 4 eggs every day. We!
had already hatched out 5 settings
of eggs, and 8 little chickens were
the result of our motherly care of
the trusted eggs. But the old lady!
informed me that we needed more
hens’ nests.
I looked around and found a car
penter who had been out of work

that are laying are all laying in the
same nest. Five old huzzies are set

I tried to figger up the items
that ran my bill up to $28 85 After
checking yie .lob over, I found that
here’s what I paid for:

Smoking cigarettes_.... .90
Waiting for a scantling 1.00

But everything's all right now
with the poultry. They seem per
fectly happy, especially the roosters.
They enjoy scratching all of the
excelsior and hay out of the nests
and otherwise disturbing the peace
and tranquility of the yard. So far
