TH HAMBURG FOWL.
'the Hamburg fowl is a very useful and im
portant denizen of our poultry yard. The
hens lay nearly every day until the moulting
reason ; hence they obtained the name of
" everlasting layers," but they very seldom
sit. This is in all probability owing to their
confined condition in this country ; for it is
said that when these birds have a free wood
land range, they frequently set to the task of
incubation with as much diligence as other
fowls. Of this fowl we have three varieties.
The first is the Penciled Hamburg, which is
of two colors—golden and silver—and is very
minutely marked. The hens of both should
Nave the body clearly penciled across with
several bars of black, and the hackle in both
sexes should be perfectly free from dark marks.
The cocks do not exhibit the pencilings, but
are white or brown in the golden or silver
birds respectively. Their form is compact,
and their attitudes graceful and upright. In
addition to their common appointive% they
are also known in different parts of England
as Chitteprates, Creoles or Eorals, Bolton
_Bays and Greys, and in some parts of York
shire by the wrong name of Corsican Fowls.
They are imported in large numbers from Hol
land, but those bred in this country are greatly
Of the Speckled or Spangled Hamburg,
which is a favorite breed with many persons,
there are two kinds—the golden-spangled and
the silver-spangled. The general color of the
former is golden or orange yellow, each feather
having a glossy dark-brown or black tip, par
tici:la-4y remarkable on the hackles of the
cock• and the wing coverts, and also on the
darker feathers of the breast. The female is
yellow or orange brown, the feathers in like
manner being margined with black. The
silver-spangled variety is distinguished by the
ground color of the plumage being of a silver
white with perhaps a tinge of straw-yellow,
every feather being margined with glossy black.
Both of these varieties are extremely beautiful,
.the hens laying freely.
third variety is the Black Hamburg, the
Omega of which is a beautiful black, with
metallic lustre. It possesses the two-fold ad
vantage of being a noble looking bird and ex
ceedingly good layer. On the whole, the Ham

comb, full of points, ending in a large one at
the end turned up, no hollow in the centre of

FEEDING MEAL TO STOCK.
Dozbtless many of your readers have had
longer experience in feeding meal, and per
haps know as economical and effectual manner
of feeding it as the subscriber. I believe there
are a few, at least, of your patrons, like many
farmers whom I know, who feed from four Co
eight quarts of meal a day to one beef creature,
ti l they feed from seven to ten cwt. of meal
to one beef, and who never slaughter an ordi
nary sized beef that yields upwards of forty
pounds of rough tallow. These farmers feed
their meal dry. This is a great waste. My
practice in fattening beef and swine, as well
as feeding cows for milk, has been to pour boil
ing water en as much meal as would not make
the animal's bowels move too freely, at night
and morning ; when the mush is cool, give it
to the cow or pig. In covering the meal with
belling water in this way, the starch of the
grain is dissolved, and the latent nutritive pro
perties extracted, and the animal receives the
entire nutriment of the grain.
I calculate stock do not, in eating dry meal,
receive more than one-half of the goodness of
the meal. There is not action enough in mas
tication, or heat sufficient in the stomach of
the animal, to extract and receive the entire
and real sweetness of the grain. Had I roots
I should feed them to my fattening beef. But
not having any, I feed only meal and hay, and
I have fattened two ordinary sized cows, two
years past, and to which I only fed three cwt.
of meal each, and they each yielded upwards
of forty pounds of rough tallow. Once a week
I throw into the mush a little salt, and occa
sionally a, table-spoonful of good ashes. My
experience teaches me that one cwt. of meal
as described above, is equal to two cwt. fed
dry. Try it, young farmer, and see if yop
cannot endorse this.
A PORTABLE SHEEP RACK.
sheep farmer of Columbia county, Ohio,
who has tried several kinds of racks, gives the
following description of one, which prevents
tmewiing„ is in every way satisfactory, and oe
simple that any farmer can make one. It con
sists of four posts, three feet long, and, if
made of three by three scantling, will be heavy
cnough. t Two bottom boards, one inch thick
and ten or twelve wide, and two for the top,
one inch thick and five or six wide. These
boards are placed horizontally for the sides of
the rack, and similar boards, two feet long, are
nailed to the posts at each end. The rack may
he about twelve feet long, and two feet is a
very suitable width. Upon these horizontal
hoards are nailed uprights, six inches wide,
and placed six inches apart. This makes a
cheap, portable rack, whioh we like in every
