A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
The t'ole commission man's bill,
whleu passed both houses of the New
York legislature and w-na signed by gov
ernor Sul.er. Is not all that the pro
ducers of the Kmplro State hud hoped,
but It gives promise of doing a good
deal to put a stop to the Injustice which
they have had to put up with for years
past from rrooked commission men.
The new law gives the commissioner
of agriculture authority to refuse a II

him In payment for produce received
by the merchant; provide for hearing
before the agricultural commissioner,
at which grievance may lo presented
by growers and penalties usscssod

tho commissioner to take sworn testi

law would bo to make a good loud

ENGLISH HENS STILL LEAD.
Tho twenty-third week of tho Inter
national egg laying content at the
Storrs college, Connecticut, found the
English White Leghorns still lu the
lead and maintaining It by a good mar
gin. Mr. Hiirron'a pen had a acoro of
and Mr. Cam'i 4'A Mr. Schmltz's
Huff I-cfrliorns (American) had laid 413
eggs and Mr. Cam's Whlto Wyaudottcs
Two other pens of American
White Leghorns had laid im ami 401
eggs nHectlvely. A further Interest
Ing feature of the contest Is the show
lug of averages for tho twenty third
week by pens of the different breeds.
In this the White Leghorn stand at
the head of the list, forty three pens
having an average of 21.5 egg each,
two pens Columbian Plymouth Kock
average 23 eggs each, eleven pen
White Wyandot tee show an avorngo of
Island ItedS average 22 egg, two pens
Buff Wyandotte average 215 eggs
and two hiis Huff Orpingtons scored
20.5 eggs each. The lowest weekly
average, eleven eggs, wu made by
four pens of White Orpingtons.
Extensive experiments conducted by
tho department of agriculture show
that April and May are tho best
mouths In which to put down eggs
and thut tho wuter glass solution gives
the best results. A stone Jar make
the best container, and this should be
scalded thoroughly before the eggs are
put Into It The water glass, which Is
a silicon compound, can lie got at the
drug store for from !0 cents to $1 a
gallon and should be dlluti-d In ten
gallons of boiled water. Of course a
smaller amount of the solution may ha
made up, but this one to ten ratio
should be maintained. The eggs should
be gathered or secured dally If possi
ble, and only those that are clean ami
not cracked should be used. When
the Jar Is full It should be covered to
prevent evaporation of the solution.
When taking tho eggs out for use next
fall and winter they should bo wash

be boiled a pinhole should bo made In
the shell to prevent breaking, as the
