So many conditions must be con
sidered in building poultry houses
that each individual must in the end
plan his own house. Howover, tho
plans here suggested, for which no
especial originality is claimed, will,
with slight modification, meet a wide
variety of needs.
The cssental requirements of a
poultry house are comfort for tho
hens and convenience for the at
tendant. It should be dry, well
lighted nnd well ventilated. It is
not necessary that It bo warm. Von
tllatlon is usually secured by open
windows or muslin-covored open
ings. Percho3 should be as far back
from tho front as possible, and Im
mediately next to the tight rear
Dirt floors aro cheapest, and If
properly elevated and drained, are
probably best for tho comfort of
the fowls. Double board floors with
slaters felt between aro warm, dry
and comfortable. If properly ele
vated, rats will not bo able to es
tablish themselves underneath.
When single board floors aro used,
slaters folt should bo laid over the
Joists boforo putting down tho
boards. Cement floors aro expen
sive, and aro npt to bo cold and
damp. They often furnish Ideal
conditions for harboring rats.
All poultry hquses should have
tight walls. Rough boards may bo
used and covored with roofing pa
per or shingles, or grooved Biding
may bo used with slntors folt back
of it. Windows should not bo pro
vided in excess or real need. About
ono square foot of glass to 15 square
feet of floor space Is sulllcient.
A Piano-Box Broodor Houso
Nonrly ovory farm needs a few sninll
housos that may bo equipped with
broodors or used for brooding hens.
Thoy aro especially useful where
there. .Is reason to fear gapdszror
rats and other enemies.
Tho cheapest way of providing
those houses Is by utilizing piano
boxes. Ono way of constructing such
a houso is to lay tho box flat on Its
back and romovo tho entire top; Tho
sides should then bo extended, male
lng the house nbout G feet high in
front nnd 2 feet in tho rear with n
floor nearly C feet square. The top
should bo hinged at tho front so that
It can bo raised when desired. The
front should havo a small door for
tho chicks and a large combination
door and window about 2 feet
wide and 3 feet high, covered with
muslin and netting and , hinged at
tho top. The material for this house
should not cost more than $5.
Colony Houses Whore a larger
house Is desired fn which the at
tendant can stand erect, tho gable
colony house is very popular. These
houses are built on runners, are o
or GxS feet and about 7 J, feet
high at the comb. This house mny
bo supplied with detachable hover
or indoor brooders. When tho
chicks no longer need the hovers
they arp removed nnd the houses
then make Ideal quarters for grow
ing stock. Small flocks of laying
hens may be kept in them when not
occupied by chicks. Built of groov
ed siding this house will require
about 350 feet of lumber. It should
not cost over $1G.OO If well paint
ed it will require no roofing.
A Four-Section Brooder and Lay
ing House It is easier to attend to
a number of brooders under one roof
than scattered in several houses and
larger horses can be used to better
ndvantage when wanted for laying
llocks. A house 8x12 feet will ac
commodate four brooders or hov
ers, and if built on runners can b?
moved to new ground readily when
desired. If built with plain inch
boards and covered with reofiti;; pa
per, it will require 750 feet of lum
ber. The cost for material will be
about $35. It will take a little more
lumber If grooved siding is used,
but there will be little -difference in
A House for Ffty Hens A house
for fifty hens should be about 12x18
feet. It can be most easily and
economically constructed, with a
shed roof, tho rear being 5 feet high
and the front about 7. Two 12-llght
windows should be provided, with
a 3x5 feet opening between them.
This should have a muslin shutter
for use in extreme weather. Tie
door should be in front or on Hie
east side. The house with dirt flo'qr,
can be constructed for ?40, No. , 1
grooved siding being used.

"We should nt once introduce In this
state the system of direct nominations
In the primaries so that the people
shall be able themselves to decide who
the candidates shall be, Instead of be
ing limited merely to choosing between
cnjidldates with whose nomination
they have had nothing to do."
Grubor In assailing Roosevelt said
"Twelve years ago on this platform
I warned a Republican convention
ngalnst turning the executive mansion
into n shooting gallery. My advice
was not heeded. Since that memora
ble day the man who lias ever since
been shooting has seen his party or
ganization divided in every state, his
party's candidates overwhelmingly de
feated, business depressed and the In
telligent nnd honest workingmun with
out employment nnd hungry.
"Looking for other fields for shoot
ing practice, tills man Is now shooting
at the courts and Judges.
"But, Mr. Chairman, this is not a
new symptom. It Is nn old disease.
This apostle of derringer practice
while lie was president nbused Judge
Humphrey of the United States court,
a gentleman and honest man, for ren
dering a decision which was made ac
cording to tho law and which to this
day is unreversed.
"Workingnien of the United States,
do you recall that wheii Haywood and
Moyer were on trial for their lives
this same shooter, with nil the power
of tho president of tho United States,
held up the leaders of lnbor as 'unde
"A French king onco said, 'I am the
stute.' No sane man may ever say, 'I
am the United States. The homes of
the country are not yet deserted for
the railroad station. Tho lungs of the
country are not Its brains. Men who
a few months ago believed now disbe
lieve, men who worshiped then now
execrate, and throughout the country
the business men as such are facing
panic and lovers of their rights and
liberties are fearing revolution.
"When given power to shoot the
trusts he drew a lino between the
good ones and tho bad ones. The
steel and sugar trusts were tho good
one; those which would not help along
the shooter's political schemes were
the bad ones. And uow those who cry
'Vive le rol' are good Republicans, nnd
those who are putting patriotism
above nil else and tltcreforc will not
Join the cry aro bad Republicans.
"Fellow citizens of New York, has
the correspondence with Harriman
passed from your minds? While the

to get money, and In writing the sen

nian that they were both practical
men and had better keep the partner
ship under cover. Harriman supplied
his share of tho capital, and 1 now
