the truth and trust to God for justice.
X say the friend should stand by the
person on trial and do all he can for

Olmrles F. Kile, of Enhaut, has 23
hens that laid 803 eggs last month.
They produced four eggs on the first
day, the lowest number laid on any
date, and made their best record on
the 30th, with 16 eggs. The average
per bird for the month was slightly
above 1-3 eggs. The flock contains
somo pure-bred Rhode Island Reds
and a cross of Black Mlnorcas on
Rhode Island Reds.
William J. Relder. 447 Lincoln
street, Steelton, has in his flock 25
pullets and five all of which are
pure bred White Leghorns excepting
two White Wyandottes that are kept
to do the hatching. In December the
flock laid 476 eggs, or thirty-nine and
two-third dozens, an average of a
trifle short of 16 eggs per bird. These
eggs were sold at an average price of
40 cents per dozen, the gross receipts
amounting to $15.87. Within the
month this flock consumed 126
pounds of scratch feed which cost
$2.75; also 35 pounds of dry mash
that cost 90 cents and grit, shell and
charcoal to the value of 35 cents.
The total cost of feed was therefore
$4.00. leaving a profit of $11.87 for
Mr. Relder has observed that 100
hens, on the same basis, would have
given a net profit of $39.50 in the
month of December, as much as a
laborer earns in a month at a rate of
sixteen cents per hour.
Brown Eggs Hatch Out
a Day After Whites
Care and judgment should be ex
ercised in the selection of the eggs
for hatching. These eggs should be
rigidly selected for (1) size, (2) uni
formit yof size, (3) shape. (4) uni
formity of size, (3) shape, (4) uni
formity of color, (7) shell texture
Eggs with weak shell texture break
very easily when being turned during
incubation. Those that are either too
large or too small make the work of
turning more difficult because of the
lack of uniformity in size. Brown
eggs ordinarily hatch approximately
twenty-four hours later than white
shelled eggs, and it is therefore not
advisable to mix brown with white
eggs In the same incubator. Further,
the good sized egg will hatch a heav
ier chick than a small one. The small
I chick is seriously handicapped when
forced to compete for food and
'warmth with the larger and stronger
ones. Like tends to produce like.
