SOME EGG LAYEK.
Mndo Hcmnrkablo Showing nt Tills
At tho Missouri notional egg lay
ing contest nt tho Missouri State
poultry experiment station, a whlto
Plymouth Hock lien, Lady Showyou,
seems to bo pretty much tho whole
show. In tho first ten months of tho
contest she laid 237 oggs, and atandB
a good chance to surpass tho world's
record for one year. This hen weighs
six pounds and has lnid flvo time's
her own weight in eggs In ton
months. By measuro sho has laid
almost a bushel of eggs. Sho has
consumed forty-eight pounds of dry
mash, thirty-two pounds of grain
and two pounds of grit, bono nnd
shell. This hen has not been broody
during tho year nor has sho molted.
It costs 'but little moro to feed
and house Lady Showyou than tho
ordinary hen, and If a farmer or
poultry breeder owned a Hock of
hens like her, his profits would bo
from six to ten times as great as
would bo tho case with ordinary
hens thnt average only eighty eggs
While Lady Showyou is tho ex
ception and not the rule, It Is possi-
i ble for every farmer and poultry
j man to improve his flock and In
1 crease his profits if ho will perslst
1 ently follow a system of selection.
Lady Showyou Is not n chance bird;
I some hens lay more eggs than oth-
ers and it was after years of breed
ing from hens that were selected for
i their heavy laying that a hen capable
lot producing 237 eggs in ten months
was bred. The practice of building
up a heavy laying strain by selection
may bo carried on in every poultry
yard just as effectually as at any ex
periment station, and no poultryman,
no matter how limited his opera
tions, can nfford to breed from a
hen about whose egg laying record
ho knows nothing.
In the Missouri contest there Is
one Hamburg, one singlo comb white
Leghorn, one rose comb black Mi
norca and flvo barred Plymouth
Rocks that have never laid an egg,
and there are several other breeds
that have laid less than half a dozen.
There was no selection of best lay
ers in tho flocks from which these
nonproducers were bred.

A woman speaker at an Iowa rur

truth when sho stated that could
farmers be induced to spend as much
money in Improving conditions un
der which they live on tho farm as
they spend when they leave the farm
and move Into town, tho townward
trend of rural population would
cease and farm living conditions
would bo infinitely improved, says
Farm and Homo. The population of
the small middle western town is
largely made up of farmers and land
owners who have moved in to spend
their declining years at ease, or to
secure better educational and social
advantages for their families.
The retired farmer la frequently
an undeslrablo town citizen. He is
rarely satisfied with town life, is not
able to content himself with town
business and so divides his existence
in an uneasy sort of way between the
farm and his village homo without
being of marked benefit to either.
When he moves to town he is not ad
verse to spending ?10,000 or ?12,
000 in building a comfortable home,
with all tho conveniences and com
forts which modern invention has
Could ho be induced to spend half
this In remodeling his farm house,

and beautifying conditions out of

living conditions attractive rather
than repugnant to his family and
provide homo surroundings In which
he could spend a contented Tather
than a dissatisfied old ago. Best of
all ho would bo a better citizen bo

tho upbuilding of country conditions.

This comes by tho way of Harrls

statesmanship: " Whllo returning to
Millorstown from tho first day's hunt
Chas. A. Fisher, of North Fifteenth
street, was walking along tho road
with his friends. Ho saw a rabbit
running In tho woods besides tho

MAKING HOME ATTRACTIVE.
Farmers Have the Materials For Beau

Neat, conveniently arranged build
ings, n well kept lawn attractively
bordered with trees! nnd shrubs add
greatly to the appearance and value
of the farm and to tho happiness of
Its occupants, says a bulletin of tho
Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station
on "PlRiinlng and Adorning the Home

the general area occupied by the farm
buildings, house and lawn, Is the
center of activity for the farm. Its

the standpoint of convenience and of
securing an attractive landscape effect,
deserve speclnl consideration.
A well thought out plan is the first
requisite to get these results, ns lu
the absence of a definite scheme seri
ous mistakes are likely to be made.
This plan should include the location
of buildings, drives, walks, trees,
shrubbery, and every other feature
which contributes cither to tho con
venience or ornamentation of the place.
It should be developed with the
larger relationships always In mind.
The locntlon of the house and farm
buildings Is the first consideration.
Even though It happens that some or
all of these are already on the ground,
a plan for their location Is important
New farm homes are erected to sup
plant old ones and other new farm
structures aro added, which make prac
ticable a general consideration of the
entire building scheme. Material Im
provement can often bo made in a
farmstead by a readjustment as new
buildings are put up, though the best
results are obtained where things are
planned right from the start

Hang Up the Scythe.
'It is undeslrablo to leave a scytho
lying about, yet It Is equally difficult
to find a suitable place to hang one.
To hang It on a nail Is to risk dulling
tho blade, whllo to hang it In tho
crotch of a tree Is detrimental to tho
tree's welfare. However, thero Is a
way. Obtain n V shaped crotch from
nn old limb, cutting one fork about a
foot in length and the other about six
inches. Tho rear sido of tho long fork
is then trimmed down slightly so that
It can bo nailod uprightly to a flat
surface. This will form a permanent
