MODERN AGRICULTURE IN RURAL.
A sign of the times that promises
much for everybody Is the Introduction
of courses of modern agriculture In the
rural schools. This certainly Is a prac
tical move and is only delayed Justice
to the fanner's family, the mainstay
of the nation. The boys have been
leaving the farms, and one reason Is
they had little chance to stJdy advanc
ed agriculture. The Pennsylvania
course Includes lessons on the nature
of plants, farm crops, wheat, oats,
grasses, legumes, vegetable gardens, to
bacco, potatoes, soils, roads, chestnut
blight trees, fruits, birds, bouse flies,
mosquitoes, weeds, swine, dairying,
horses, cattle, feeds and feeding, pool
try, farm machinery and farm book
It's about time the little red school-
house In the country gets what's com
ing to It
The farmer's children are most prac
tical, and Just Imagine how they will
discuss these lessons In the long win
ter evenings and apply them right
away to the life and work around them.
Poultry Is very popular with young
people, and teaching It in the country
schools means more modern methods
and purer bred and better paying poul
try on the farm and more and finer
market poultry and eggs for the con
FEATHERS AND EGGSHELLS.
T. W. Orcutt secretary St Louis

entry this year would be limited to

We advise our readers to go slow
about taking up new American breeds
or imported novelties. There are at
tempts Just now to boom several breeds
by extensive advertising, while another
breed recently boomed Into the lime
light is being discarded.
Bee and poultry keepers desirous of
obtaining full figures for the United
States in these lines from the last cen

This Is certainly a funny style of cen
There Isn't a more satisfactory feed
on a very cold night than a fill up on
whole corn. It bns the heating prop

relished by the flock. More of that old
style mush and milk like mother used
to make Is good for humans in cold
The breeder who has rery large
squabs to sell should cater to restau
rants that are after something to take
the place of canvnsnack ducks, grouse
and partridge, where the fancy appe
tites of big spenders are fed at large
prices. That's where the big squab
brings big money.
Buckwheat Is cheaper this season
tli an last Those who feed It should
remember that it has much busk and
contains much carbohydrates (fat
tener). Fresh winter eggs laid by your own
bens for your own table have a taste
and charm that no guarantee can give
to an outsider's hen fruit Too know
what they are, and then, besides,
didn't you help Biddy to lay that egg?
We have visited pigeon lofts whose
owners claim to be experts and found
the lofts filthy beyond description and
the squabs right In the dirt. Such
conditions soon bring failure and ex
plain why ninny become pigeon pessi
mists. A Massachusetts fancier fired gun
and bis wife fired a revolver at
chicken thief, and the thief was killed.
A Jiu-y held the fancier in f 1,000 ball,
but Ignored the woman entirely, for
no Jury would ever believe a woman
could hit anything she fired at except
when she shoots off ber mouth.
Every producer is worthy of a fair

tricks. They shun him, and he loses
much more in the end than be ever
gained by his unjust exnctlons.

NEW GRADING RULES
New grading rules, which the board
of directors of the Wenatchee Valley
Kruit Growers' Association has sub
mitted to the committee of ten from
the soft fruit growers, embrace some
noticeable departures. A minimum
weight for boxes of soft fruit has been
fixed, for one thing, and will be an
important feature of the new grading
rules if they are finally adopted.
It is likely that cherries will be
packed next season in crates Instead
of boxes, though if the old style box
he used it must not weigh less than
11 Mi pounds. A crate containing 24
cups is recommended for Royal Anns,
and for the smaller varieties of black
It is pointed out that it takes from
7 to 14 days for peaches to reach the
market and that they should be pick
ed with this fact in remembrance. On
ly one grade, "fancy," is provided for
peaches. No Elberta or other varie
ties of yellow peach will be received
smaller than 80 to the box, except
Crawfords, Globes and Fosters. No
Alexanders, Hales Early and Triumph
shall be smaller than 90 to the box.
The diagonal pack must be used for all
Two Grades of Soft Fruits
Two grades of plums, apricots and
prunes are allowed. "Fancy" will be
packed 6x5 and larger, three tiers to
the basket. "Choice" will be 5x6 or
6x6, four tiers to the basket Crates
must not weigh less than 27 pounds
gross. No cots, plums or prunes will
be accepted less than 6x6.
Pears will be "extra fancy" and "C"
grade. Bartlett, Buerre, D'Anjou, Co-
mice, Flemish Beauty and Buerre Clair-
geau must not be smaller than 2
inches in diameter. Winter Nellis
must not be less than 1 Inches In
diameter. Fifty pounds must be the
gross weight of the box. The associa
tion is endeavoring to induce manu
facturers to turn out a pear box a
quarter inch longer at top than at
One Grade Summer Apples
Only one grade, the orchard run, is
allowed in summer apples, which must
be wrapped in paper and the boxes
lined. Boxes with more than 175 ap
ples will not be accepted, with the ex
ception of Red June, Yellow Transpar
ent and Jeffries, which may be as
small as 200 to the box.
There are many more rules, looking
to the proper picking and packing of
apples, which are to be considered by
the soft fruit growers of the Wenatch
ee Valley at another mass meeting, at

DON'T OVERCROWD CHICKENS
Overcrowding is the father of
peck of troubles. Overcrowing makes
over-fat bens, and over-fat hens lay
soft-shelled eggs and the egg eating
habit follows. Overcrowded flocks
roost closely together at night and
sweat, leaving them In a weakened
condition resulting in sickness. Over
crowding also produces idleness. Idle
hens become mischievous hens, and
the disgusting vice of feather pulling
is the result. Better results in both
health and egg production come from
flocks that have plenty of "elbow
