Tho mother hen always 1'ceps her brood to
gether with a soft, low, cooing sound which
they early learn and follow. She generally
seeks deep grass and grain fields, wherein
the young can h'.do from tho attacks of
overhanging hawks. A peculiar sound Irom
tho parent hen causes every chick to squat
nnd hide in the tall weeds nnd grass, They
remain thus secreted until assured from her
that all danger is over, when the bright little
creatures come forth with a happy llutler of
glad wing'. Turkeys nro peihaps the inot

vhen corn and buckwheat kernels have be
1 "nino tempting, I would not care to be an
swerable for their depredations; still they
ill not thrive without their run. If on
no's own premises, the dainago is slight, if
on a neighbor's a provocation to anger, the
'tetter way is to limit their range, if possible,
and train them tocertaki bounds. We have
ltcu observed that tho later broods, that
come off about harvest time, thrive mush
better than tho early hatched ; that is, they
are more apt to live. One turkey hatched
the last of May or first of Juuc,is worth two
hatched in August; has more frame and
muscle, aud makes altogether a finer bird.
Why is it that the late hatched livo better
than the early? Simply because the parent
bird is in better sUte of cleanliness, and
freed from vermin, and it is the presenco of
vermin on the body that produces or aggra
vates every diseat,e. The turkey hen sits
over four weeks, Tho chick comes out in
twenty-six days, but the mother's sedentary
life is not then at an end, for the young
must bo covered, aud she has had no oppor
tunity for wallowing beforo commencing her
first period of incubation, and thusriddiug
her body ot the winter accumulation. These
parasites leave the parent and crowd and
breed on the young chicks. With the first
brood this fomidable obstacle is to bo en
countered. Later in tho season the turkey
hen is rid of this scourge, and tho young do
not have the parasites to confront the'
weather is dry and warm, and tho earth has
become so thoroughly heated that tho night
ly roosting strikes them with no chill, Fro
quently tho later broods require no feeding,
as there is sufficient forage of tender herbage
and insects for their supply, but our depend
ence for largo turkeys (and.sizo is an im
portant item)' must bo on tho early hatched.
Frequently Juno is heralded by cold heat'
ing rain sterols, followed by chilling east
inds. All young chicks, and turkeys in
particular, must be guarded against these vi
cissitudes. The best way to do -this is to
provide a building for their occupancy that
can be warmed by means of a stove, as the
spring chicks require a constant watch over
them to enable them to pass safely through
the gapes. Warm weather, high feed, and
clean quarters will tide tbem over this terri
ble scourge. At three weeks, if kept in good
condition, they are beyoud danger; yet a
close observer will perhaps note the heavy
breathing and hoarse rattling in the throat
which.always accompany the gapes, although
the birdimay give no other indication of the
presence of. the disease. As long as this
slime is loose in the throat there is no dan
ger, but a eudden'cold may tighten it, and
then there is no help. While it is looso, and
the bird is ttrong, a vigorous sneeze will re
move the difficulty ; but when once weaken
ed or reduced in strength, there is no hope.
I believe, oi'lato years, all tho early broods
of both chickens and turkeys are alllicted to
greater or less degree, with thi.) most
painful malady, for which there is preven'
tion, but no cure. C. J., in Country Gen

Prof, 'McAfee, of the Iowa Agricultural
College, advises the planting of early varie
ties of potatoes only, In order to cut off tho
supply of food for the potato beetles late in
the summer. This, we think, is an excellent
suggestion, and for other reasons than those
named by Vrof. McAfee. There are, at least
two broods of this insect in a season through
out the greater part of the Northern and
Middle States, and in some favorable local!
ties three. Now, if nono but the earliest
varieties uri planted, tho tops will bo ripe
by the time the first brood comes to maturi
ty. Tho second brood, not finding its favor
He ill abundance, a largo portion must per
lab, for, say from tho first of August until
the following spring is rather too long n time
for the mature insect to live, especially If
cut short of food. It is generally the second
last brood that hibernates, passing
through the winter in safety; but by cutting
off the supply of food we may at least lessen
the number which ate to pass off the follow'
iugseasou. It is worth trying ; in fact, any
thing which Is likely to lessen tho number
of this great peat should receivo due attcn
tion at this time,
A Michigan farmer says: "I have nev
er knowu of an instance of cholera among
hogs that had clean quarters, and wero fed
regularly, kept warm aud dry, although fed
exclusively on corn, and if tbey had pure
drink, I do not attribute the disease to any
cause alone, but a combination of them. To
put a hog in a cold, wet muddy place; ox
poso it to hot days and chilly nights, allow
it to )dck its food from the dirt, and drink
from somo filthy pond or hole, Is enough to
make u hog lck, and to iuvite every know
