Oa motion the committee was continued.
The following new members were pro

Jehn 31. Glider, 3Ieuntville ; Jehnsen
On motion, the society proceeded te
elect a president te fill the vacancy caused
by the resignation of Rev. D. C. Tobias.
The following nominations were made,
Silas X. "Warfcl, Strasburg; Charles E.
Leng, city ; B. J. 3IcGrann, 3Ianheim
township ; S. S. Spencer, city.
3Ir. Leng withdrew his name as a can
didate, and took occasion te say that he
had heard that some-of the country mem
bers had stated that they intended te cut
him because they had heard he exhibited a
bird at the late show that did net belong
te him. He made an explanation te
the effect that he had made a trade with
3Ir. 3Iarlin, and had owned the fowl (a
bautum pullet) nearly two months before
and after the show ; and had traded back
afterwards, te please 3Ir. Martin's little
boy. The fowl exhibited was as much the
property of 3Ir- Leng as any ether bird en
3Ir. J. A. Steber corroborated 3Ir. Leng's
statement ; he said he had seen 3Ir. Mar
tin en Friday last, and he had made te him
substantially the same statement made by
3Ir. T. F. Evans said that having heard
3Ir. Leng had exhibited a bird net his
own and received a piemium en it, he
felt it his duty te investigate the matter,
lie called upon 3Ir. 3Iartin, and that gen
tleman said the bhd exhibited by 3Ir.
Leng belonged te him (Mr. 3Iartin), and
that the bird was a bantam hen, although
it was entered as a pullet. Having heard
this, he told 3Ir. Tshudy about it with a
view of having the matter investigated.
3Ir. Leng's statement is entirely satisfac
3lr. Leng said if the bantam was a hen
and net a pullet, he was net aware of the
fact ; and indeed it made no difference se
far as the premcum was concerned, for the
premium was for cither hens or pullets.
3Ir. Leng again positively withdrew his
nunc as a candidate for president.
On motion the further discussion of the
matter was dropped.
Elcc'len or President.
3Iessrs. AV. L. Hershey, and J. A. E.
Carpenter were appointed tellers te con
duct he election for president. The name
of B. J. 3IcGrann was withdrawn, anu a
ballet being taken resulted as fellows :
Silas N. Warfcl had 10 votes ; S. S. Spen
cer had 4 votes ; Charles E. Leng had 2
votes. 3Ir. Warfel was declared elected.
Wm. A. Schecnbcrger was nominated te
fill the vacancy in the executive cemmitte
caused by 3Ir. Warfel's election te the
The question "hew early in the season
shall we set our hens-." next came up for
3Ir. Kafreth said hens night he safely
set all the year round in winter as well as
in summer. All they need is te be kept in
a reasonably warm place and give a proper
degree of attention.
3Ir. Evans said that if chicks arc te be
raised for exhibition he would rcccemmend
that the hens be set in the latter part of
February or the early part of 3Iarch.
Yeung chickens require a portion of green
feed and this cannot conveniently be had
until towards the end of 3Iarch. The best
exhibition chicks he had ever seen were
l'vhcd late in 3Iarch or early in April.
3lr. Flowers agreed with 3Ir. Evans ; he
had set hens early in January and late in
February, and the latter had far outgrown
3Ir. Tshudy had net been successful in
raising chicks hatched earlier than 3Iarch.
He supposed if the winter was as mild as
the present one has been they might safely
hi hatched earlier. Seme farmers contend
that chickens hatched after harvest make
the best layers, but they never attain se
great a size as early spring chickens.
3Ir. Trissler said he has new a breed of
chicks two weeks old and they are doing
In answer te a question as te hew the
chicks hatched out by the patent incubator
were coming en, 3Ir. Johnsten said that
the four he had taken charge of had all
died, the last of the number dying about a
week age, after living about seven weeks,
lie kept them in the sitting room, in which
a lire was kept day and night. He fed
them en boiled eggs, bread crumbs, Indian
meal, canary seed, milk. &c.,and probably
had killed them with kindness. Without
the aid of the coroner he had held a post
mortem en one of the chicks and found
that its liver was badly diseased and there
was much coagulated bleed about the
heart and at the base of the brain.
3Ir. Trissler said the chicks had preba
bly been poisoned by the coloring matter
in the carpet.
3Ir. Flowers said he had one of the
chTcks-Jiictehed by the incubator. It was
living and in geed Jiealth.

which, from an. utilitarian point of view
a e of most value the Asiatics and Ply
mouth Rocks, together, of course, with
the turkeys, ducks and geese are the
larger fowls, and that all ethers
shall be classed among- the smaller
varieties. According te this division
(net counting entries for the four special
premiums, amounting te $25, $20 of which
was taken by small fowls) there were 63
entries of large fowls, paying entry fees of
$32.50, and carrying oft' premiums amount
ing te $31. As opposed te this, there were 142
entries of the smaller varieties, paying
of $80.50. That is each entry of large
fowls paid te the exhibition 50 cents and
received from it 4TJ cents nearly, a gain for
the association of 2 cents en each entry,
while in the smaller varieties each entry
gave te the exhibition 41 1-5 cents,
and received from it an average of CI cents
the exhibition losing en each entry 19 4-5 cts
1 he average less en each pigeon entry
was 23 cents, canaries, 50 cents ; Polish,
8e cents. Except Dorkings and turkeys
where the 30 cents entry fee was all gain,
they having received no premiums, the
largest average gain was in Plymouth
Rocks, 30 cents.
Omitting pigeons, canaries and the par
rot from this calculation, we have 70 varie
ties of smaller fowls, giving $40.50 and
taking $30.50, making an average less of
14 2-7 cents en each entry.
Excluding special cash premiums abavc
mentioned and the entries therefore, the
average less throughout en each entry was
12 4-5 cents ; including them, 18 cents.
It was stated before the exhibition that
the entry fees would pay the premiums,
and as no one objected te this I suppose
every one considered that te be about
right. The sequel shows that they lacked
$40 of doing this, and as the entries were
even greater in number than was expect
ed, this deficiency can only be accounted
for en the hypothesis that entirely tee
many premiums were given te the smaller
This has been blamed en the pigeons,
but the less en them is only about half of
the total less.
What is the object in raising peultry:
Te obtain flesh, eggs and feathers. Then
the poultry most needed is that which best
answer this purpose furnish geed flesh
and eggs for the table, and lay and propa
gate met rapidly. Arc Bantams, Games
and Polish en the one hand, or Brahmas,
Cochins, Plymouth Rocks and Leghorns
en the ether, best fitted for this? 3Iest
emphatically the latter. I doubt whether
theie is a man in Lancaster county choos chees
ing from the standpoint of usefulness, who
would net take the Plymouth Reck ex
hibit in preference te the whole batch f
pigeons, although the former took but fc3
in premiums te the hitter's $34.50.
It may be held that we should cultivate
fowls for beauty, as well as for utility, but
should net these which arc pre-eminently
both of these receive mere consideration at
the hands of an association of poultry
raisers than varieties which are purely or
namental '.' And what fowls en exhibition
were mere beautiful than some of the
Brahmas and Cochins:'
It is also an acknowledged fact that it is
easier te get bantams that will count a
high score than larger fowls.
Taking all these into consideration, I
net only believe that the fowls received
tee few premiums at the Lancaster county
exhibition, but that they de at nearly all
similar exhibitions throughout the coun
try. Your secretary will tell you that out
of $700 lest en premiums in thirteen ex
hibitions from which he has recently
heard, enlv $91 was lest en Asiatics, Ply

Frem away "down East" the secretary
of the Southern 3Iassachusetts poultry
association sends his laments. He thinks
there should be some revision respecting
the pigeon department, and suggests that
throughout, no premiums should be paid
when there is no competition. This would
of course make the list of premiums much
smaller and would pecuniarily benefit the
association, but yet would net equalize
matters sufficiently te give the larger fowls
. When competition is between large and
small fowls, a discount of 5 per cent might
be made en the scores of the smaller ones,
which might put them mere nearly en an
Less bantams weigh higher points that
is the less valuable they are as market
table, the higher will they score.
Chas. Lippold did net agree with the cr
sayist. Fancy pigeons were mere valuable
than large fewis. The former net infre
quently sold for $150, while the highest
priced fowls never reached that figure.
3Ir. Evans agreed with much that the
essayist had read, but he objected te the
games being classed with the smaller va
rieties. As a table bird they arc superior
te all ethers, and as layers they arc net
much behind the Leghorns or llamburgs.
3Ir. Lichty stated that he had written te
the secretaries of a number of poultry so
cieties and had received answers from six
teen of them. The uniform answer he re
ceived from all of them was that while the
entry fees of Asiatics, Ply mouth Rocks,
and ether standard varieties of fowls,
sometimes mere than paid the premiums
awarded them, and always nearly paid
them, there was great less en bantams.

hole in which the bulk of the profits was
3Ir. Charles E. Leng spoke at some
length, defending the action of the judges
at the late fair. The small birds had re
ceived no mere prizes than they were fair
ly entitled te by the premium list. If the
list was net properly arranged the fault
lay with the executive committee, and .t
could be corrected before the next fair.
He was net sure, however, that it would
be wise te exclude small birds from the
premium list or even materially reduce
the premiums. He knew there were many
people especially ladies and children who
visited the fair mainly te sec the bantams
3Ir. Steber held that the object of a
poultry show should be te improve the
breed of fowls. He had bred Asiatics, but
new breeds llamburgs and Leghorns,
which he deems far better
3Ir. J. B. Leng had bred Leghorns and
Plymouth Rocks, having geed success
with all of them. He had recently secured
a trio of Black Cochins. Since the 15th of
January they have laid CO eggs, which was
a better showing thau he had had from
any ether fowls.
Mr. Steber said that he had seven silver
spangled Hamburg that had laid last week
forty-two eggs, and week before last thirty-two
A rambling discussion of some length
took place en the relative merits of large
and small birds, when finally a motion was
made te adjourn.
The following question was offered for
discussion at next meeting.
" Is there any way te reduce the flying
propensities of Leghorns ?"

D. Gcib, the agent for the Pennsylvania
and Northern Central railroad companies
at 3Iarysvillc, Pa., was killed at that
place en Saturday. Shortly after eleven
while purchasing meat from a butcher's
wagon, en the read which runs down te
the railroad track at the sta
tion, the horse, frightened by
the escape of steam from an engine
which was shifting close by, became
fractious, and 3Ir. Geib drew away from
the wagon, stepping back en the track
just as some shifting cars came up. His
attention being drawn toward the horse he
did net notice the cars, which knocked
him down, one truck passing ever his
body just below the hips. He was re
moved te his home where he expired at
12:30 p. m. 3Ir. Geib was a native of
