Nobody knows when or by whom
fowls were first domesticated. There
are at most only two or tbrco allusions
to them in tho Old Testament and these
aro of doubtful import. However
in the timo of Aristotle who wrote
3."0 years boforo Christ, thoy wore
evidently common for ho Bpeaks of
them as familiarly as a naturlist of the
present day. Tho wild origin of our
domestic fowl is entirely unknown.
Tho race is probably extinct. Tho
domestic turkey is not so far removed
from the wild stato as tho domestic
chicken. There U no disnuto about
his origin, the wild tui-koy not being
yet extinct and uot (Uttering so widely
from tho tenants of our barn yards as
to give room for doubt on that point.
In fact if kept in tho neighborhood of
large torests they will ofton stroll
thither without any dr-siro to return,
such is tho natural wildness of their
species. Thu domestic oosu has ac
knowledged thu sway of man for ages,
perhaps since the days of Noah.
Hotiier mentions them wheio Pene
lope relating her dream says, "I havo
twenty geeau at home that eat wheat
out of water, and I am delichtod with
them." Their cackling it will be remem
bered savod Itotnu from the Gauls 388
years before Christ. Their wild origin
is unknown, tho wild geeso ot tho prcs
ontday being of a different Bpeoie-.
rue origin ot the tamo duck is not a
woll settled point. Dixon supposes it
to have been imported to England
from India and China in or about tho
Wu can hardly suppose that man
has cared for poultry for over 2U00
years and yet not bo fully satisfied
that they n o cither a profit or a pleas
uro. Yet this question is so often ask
ed and by so many different kinds of
people that to aus.ver it intelligently
requires somo explanation. As facts
aro abundant 1 need not offer theories,
Somo peoplo condemn theories in toto
and when anyono is bold enough to
advanco a now ono they go for him
with a vim which nearly frightens him
out ot ids wits and theories alike.
What a great mistako to thns con

things when properly used which the
Creator has endowed us with. What
is successful practico but theory prao
ticaily demonstrated t Theory must
always precedo practice and all our
discoveries both great and small aro

some one else, but it we trace it back
far enough wo will find that somo ono

no long thought tbero ought to be a
better way. Straightway theory came
into play and by working out the
tbeoiies carefully, new methods and
plans wore developed and then put in
to general practice. Theory is only
distastetul and objectionable as well
as pernicious when it has no lounda
tion and where thero is neither oppor
tunity or inclination to develop it into
lacta, but as J havo said lacts are
abundant and I shall not indulge in
many if any theories. I beliovo I am
safe in saying that in no other depart
ment of the farm has thero been such
advancement of lalo years as in the
.poultry yard, for ono reason, that in
no other department has there been
such neglect and abuse, and another is
that there has been a general awaken
ing among the people to tho interest
of poultry, commonly called tiio hen
Jover, the result ot which has been to
give her a higher place. It has been
quite a common idea tor a long time
that poultry needed but littlo or no
care and the idea was Hilly carried out
in practice,iii8uitable arrangements and
wanton neglect characterized the gen
eral farm management of the chickens.
It is thought by aany that any old
shed winch will not answer lor a pig
pen, cow stable or dog house, Is
plenty good enough for fowls, and tho
jowls otten show their better sense in
choosing the fences and apple trees out
side, rather than accept the palatial
homes offered. This stylo of houses is
not such as will tend to maku the
keeping of fowls elthor pleasant or
Poultry keeping is no exception to tho
general principal in all business that
neglect is very expensive. I speak
wan assurance on this subject lor as
a boy on tho old farm- I saw tho results
of tho faulty management. Later I
havo reaped tho fruit of a better sys
tem. Nor was my father's inanoge
ment of the tho poorest, I doubt it
there was a better in thu vicinity. He
gave tho chickens a warm house and
always had them well fed. faultless
joost polts were in position and cozy
iiostB were arranged to tempt to egg
laying, but for a good part ot tuo year
it was only this nud nothing more.
Cleaning from under tho roosts except
at oorn planting, giving warm drink
in wintor or any drink nt any season,
feeding moat or vegetable food in
winter or making the house light with
ample siinuy windows, all this was
never thought of. Wu got abundant

essential to good health, it promotes
a healthy action in the wholo fowl
economy, gives a natural warmth to
the body thereby stimulation the van
functions to generous activity. This
is not all, do not crowd too manv into
one house; keep tho placo clean. The
horso and cow stables are cleaned
every day why should not tho hen
house. Wash tho roosts frequently
with kerosene oil and whitewash all
tho wood work. An absolute necessity
is a supply of good freBh water at all
seasons of tho year, they should have
it fresh daily which can only bo insur
ed by making it a point to furnish it
regularly as tho feed is given. When
that plan is once established it becomes
a pan oi me regular roi'lino and is
not neglected. Havo some arrange
ment for watering so that the young
ciucics win not ue tempted to drown
themselves in tho water trough where
the horses drink. I presumo somo of
my hearers will shrug their tired shoul

with the thoughts of an already irk
somo life will mutter "too much work."
But it will pay. To expect that hens
will lay well iu winter when eggs aro
most desired on account of high prices,
with a correspondingly liberal amount
of food and caro would bo folly in the
extreme. Every year wo sen a con
stantly increasing demand for fresh
egg?, tor they enter tnoio largely into
