table was a glass with but a few
drops of the acid remaining in it.
Tho man's .mouth and lips were

POULTRY RAISING AN ART
IiOttoy E. Snnds Is Proprietor of n'
J'ouitry Knrm North-onst of Hnw
ley mid Has Ono of ttio Most
Complete niid Sanitary
Farms Around Hero.
Ono morning not Jong ago wo had
tho pleasure of being conducted
around tho largo poultry farm own
ed and conducted by LcRoy E.
Sands, of Hawley. The farm is sit
uated about a mile northeast of
mi n I, 11 1 a 8 Pn f,!""""! Passed Ms fiftieth year j
? vZ n m S 'n business on Wednesday, 'May S,
fnS8 ,Ver?lll,fl11-. 3" f I 1912. C. C. Jndwln. In connection I
land has been cleared of stones and
young npplo and peach trees set in,
but a small portion of tho farm is
still being cleared and prepared for
tho planting of apple trees. Tho
farm, howover, Is mostly taken up
with tho raising of thoroughbred
poultry. It is a wonderful sight to
ono who has never been to a place
of this kind to see so many high
grade birds. Mr. Sands has at the
present time about 1200 birds, most
ly Leghorns, which ho keeps for
breeding purposes and somo of which
he ships to all parts of tho country.
Tho breeders are penned off and in
each pen are laying boxes and roost
places which, are thoroughly cleaned
every day, keeping them in a snni
tary condition all the tlmo. The
floors of tho pens are of cement with
a thin layer of straw covering them
for tho poultry to roll in. Each
breeder consists of Ave or six of
these pons, each with their separate
runway extending back in a yard,
which is seeded down. When the
tender shoots begin to come up they
make excellent food for the birds.
In each breeder there is a feed
pen and hospital for lame and sick
birds. They are fed grain three
times a day and a prepared dry
mash is before them all tho time. In
a house, somo distance from tho en
trance to the farm, are kept the In
cubators. Several small ones are in
operation all the time. In tho cen
ter of the room extending almost the
entire length, about twenty feet, was
a mammoth hot water Incubator
which holds about 3300 eggs. It is
divided off into compartments and
is heated by hot water. When the
little chicks are hatched they are
put Into a brooder where they have
plenty of freedom and sunlight.
Chicks are hatched here at the rate
of 1000 a week. The orooder is a
large place partitioned off with wov
en wire into stalls and a certain
number of chicks aro put Into each.
'Each stall has its separate brooder
which Is kept at the same tempera
ture, about 102 to 103 degrees F.
aatlKtb.oy--'ar .throe weeks, old
wnen tho temperature Is gradually
decreased. When about three weeks
old they-' are let run over the farm.
Each stall has a separate runway,
extending back from tho brooder
and which is also Reeded down so
tho young tender sprouts can be
utilized as food for the young
chicks. When tho' little chicks are
still in the brooder they aro fed
oats, and the floors of their pens are
covered With cut alfalfa, which is a
valuable food for them. At differ
ent places all over tho farm Mr.
Sands has small brooders, heated by
lamps and states that when the
chicks,,are, three weeks old they are
let out to run over tho place.
Going back to young chicks it
must oo .mentioned that flve-day-old
chicks' are. shipped by Mr. Sands to
many states east of tho Rocky
Mountains' fThe chicks aro shipped
by express in small paste board
boxes, -which" allow enough ajr for
breaihirig purposes. Small chicks
can stand.. thjs, confinement .for about
forty hours; .and oven under unfav
orable conditions if they aro packed
right. Many of tho small chicks
aro kept for breeding purposes but
about one-third of tho hatch Is ship
ped. Eggs are also shipped to Western
states for liatching. 'About 4000
eggs aro received a week from his
2500 hens. Mr. Sands raises Leg
horns mostly, but keops a few
White Rocks for table ipurnosos.
All his birds are thoroughbreds and
ills fame for raising poultry nas
reached many states of tho Union
whero ho ships both eggs and birds.
Mr. Sands undoubtedly has one of
the most complete and sanitary
poultrj farms In this part of the
state and is thoroughly equipped In
every way to handlo ills largo and
extensive business. Tho chicken
business Is certainly some business.
WATCH CHEST-NUT TREES
Watch your chestnut trees .for tho
blight. The trees aro Just coming
into leaf. If the leaves remain
small, sickly looking and gradually
assume a yellowish tinge, it is good
evidence that the disease has ap
peared. Later in tho spring, dead
branches With withered leaves
clinging to them aro positive evi
dence of its appearance
Among tho numerous other evi
dences of the 'blight might bo noted
cankers in diseased branches, small
reddish blisters, many suckers or
water sprouts, and tho usual orange
colored pustules, fruiting spores, otc.
Where such conditions appear, tho
commission, or its representatives
should bo notified without delay.
Tho continued rapid spread of tho
chestnut blight which has entailed
extraordinary losses to timber own
ers, attention being called to this in
tho last issue of Tho Citizen, aggro-
gating millions or dollars, can only
bo controlled if new points of In'
fection aro promptly located and tho
diseased trees removed and tho hark
destroyed by tiro.

John Ryan, of Canaan township,
who has been lodged in tho county
Jail hero since .Wednesday noon, and
who was brought hero by constablo
Leroy SInguct, of Waymart, was
given a hearing hoforo Justice Robert
A. Smith on Thursday morning.
Ryan pleaded guilty to tho charges
set forth In tho warrant which was
sworn out by Mrs. Ryan a few lays
ago. Ho was sent back to Jail in
default of $300 good behavior bond
Imposed upon him by tho Justice.
Along with tho line goes Ryan's
agreement to keep sober, keep tho
peace and good behavior for a period
of not less than ten years.
Ryan was arrested on a warrant
issued by his wife the first of tho
week on tho charge of abusing his
family, getting his eleven year old
boy drunk, and disorderly conduct.
Tho story Is told that Ryan was In
Honesdalo on Friday and was drink
ing and had with him his sixteen year
old boy. Ho was also in town on
Saturday and was under tho influence
of liquor. On Sunday ho wont to
Waymart and this time ho had with
him his eleven year old son, and
while In Waymart or on tho road
home from that place ho procured
some whiskey and gave some to tho
boy. Ho was under tho influence
himself and during the ride home ho
Is charged with throwing the boy
out of the wagon and mistreating him
so that on reaching his homo in
Canaan township tho boy remained
unconscious for about eight hours.
Dr. Bang, of Waymart, was called
to attend tho child, and Father
Burke, of Honesdale, was also called
by Mrs. Ryan. Ryan denied all
knowledge of the occurrence, saying
that he was under the Influence of
liquor and did not know what he
did. He also denied having enter
ed a hotel for the purpose of pro
curing liquor on Sunday or while
in a state of intoxication.
Milton Salmon acted as council for
Mrs. Ryan. Ryan called for C. A.
McCarty to make arrangement for
bonds and it is supposed that tho
bond of $300 will be taken caro ot
after Ryan has learned his les3on
once and for all time. If ball is not
furnished the case will go to court.
This case brought out one import
ant fact and that is that there aro
hotels in Wayno county thit are vio
lating their liquor licences. They
aro selling to minors, and Intoxicated
persons and, it is presumed Jhat Sun
day selling' Is "Tjelngracticed. A
thorough investigation of this case
should be given to find out If these
violations aro being done and then
it will be a case for the district at
