WINTER POULTRY HOUSES.
Talking of poultry houses reminds

he lvolievod the best houses for poul
try Iu w inter ho ever tried were walled
with straw or hay on the north, west
and cast long stacks; on the south a
common Kind wall in sections easily
removed and opened In fine weather.
Tlio chickens delight to work Into tho
straw or bay. Tho most of the ma
terial can be fed out towards soring
and renewed In the fall; the remainder
can bo used as fertilizer. Using these
in a cold country where lumber was
very scarce ha found that his hens
woiw healthier and laid more eggs lu
winter than over before. Anyone liv
ing In tho country must have noticed
how chickens delight to gather about
straw stacks lu winter on the sou;h
side. They will work their way far
Into tho straw and make nests. They
will fly quite a distance over the snow
to reach a stack and Indeed a lmig
stuck cast and west Joined by another
running nortu ami south will ordinar
ily mnke almost protection enough. I
have notli'cd chickens repeatedly
gather and stay around such stacks
all day sootnlng veiy happy and If they
could find any perch near they would
