tho Rhode Island Reds. More than
two hundred of them were exhibited
in October at the Dairy Show in Eng
land, and double this number were
exhibited at the Crystal Palace Show
in England and largo classes of them
have been entered at both tho Pal
ace Show In Now York and tho show
In Philadelphia. The winners from
both of these shows are apt to come
to Scranton to win tho cups and
other prizes offered here.
One of the reasons that tho Rhode
Island Reds have become so famous.
Is that they lay so 'many eggs, one
of this variety having laid the largest
number of eggs of any hen in the
Philadelphia North American egg'
laying contest, held at Storr's, Con
nectlcut. A Whito Plymouth Rock
hen won in the Missouri egg-laying
contest; a Rhode Island Red in the
Storr's, Connecticut, contest; a
White Leghorn at Storr's, won tho
first prize for the largest number of
eggs laid of any five hens in the con
test. This brings the Rhode Island
Reds, White Plymouth Rocks and
White Leghorns into actlvo compe
tlon for being tho best egg produc
ers, tho best market poultry and the
most beautiful fowls for exhibition.
All breeders of Rhode Island Reds
should send to Mr. A. W. Close, of
Scranton, for the premium list of tho
show, so as to bo fully Informed of
the many regular and special prizes
offered this winter.
