lagee there are from three to five f
thee euUblisbmenta, They are
generally near to frome important
market place, and each ose appar
ently iu the center of a district of
alout -Vi.O"! population Tha is,
each one i-iu the center of a circle
having a radius of live mile. It is
this density of the population that
has allowed this hjstem of artificial
hatching to become so very success
ful. At the same time it must be re-memi-ered
that there is no other, as
the native Leu r.ever t-its on her
Another important point is that
the hatchers do njt attempt to rear
the young broods. l'orty-eight
hjrs after the chicks emerge from
I the shell they are scattered oyer tu;
! country: overcrowding is thus pre
j vented. This distribution is effected
! ia a very simple manner. As the in
cubatory is near a market place,
word is sent there that on such a day
there will be so many young chicks.
This news is quickiy disemiaated
among the village, and ou the ap
pointed day the women arrive with
their cages ami purchase the youDg
chicks, which are generally sold by
the hundred for about l.-"'t per
hundred. There are also a nuoilxr
of brokers or dealers who take the
young chicks to tne more uisihui
villages. Tor this tiiey have cages
made from the palm branch. They
are divided into two stories, each of
which is divided by a partition, so
that the smaller division only con
tains about 250 chicks, thus prevent
ing overcrowding. Two such cagos
will transport each 1,000 youug
birds, so that a man with a donkey
easily manages 2,000 of them, and by
nightfall has probably sold the en
tire lot at a distance of five or six
miles fioni the establishment
Once in the villages the chicks be
come tho p of the women
who takegrea care of tbem during
the tirst week, l'or two or three
days they are kept in cages in lots of
20 or 30 and fed on broken grain
slightly moistened. At night the
cages are taken into the houses and
sometimes covered with a bit of
cloth. After these lirst few days the
young birds are strong enough to
forage for a living; they are then al
lowed to roam about freely and at
night are kept iu a sort of oven
placed in a corner of the courtyard.
This oven is made of nnburnt clay
and iu shape is like the letter U laid
on one side. The top is slightly per
foiated. The entrance is closed by a
heavy stone to keep off foxes aud
When tho young chicks are fairly
feathered they are plucked perfectly
clean nnd slightly greased. This
adds greatly to their health, but de
tracts much from their beauty. It
strikes a stranger as something ex
tremely novel to see hundreds of
perfectly nuked chickens basking in
tbn sun or running about.

distances apart, 1 should estimate
the number at with an average
production of 3CJH ,IMM per beason
This estimate must be t veil within
the mark, as the population of
Egypt is nearly 7,(K)0,(MK, and fowls j
form a very large part of the Egyp
tian diet, so that 1.",0tJU,t)0 eatable
fowls would be a short supply.
The ordinary form of the incuba
tories is an obloug 100 feet iu
length by 50 feet iu width, the height
varying from 12 to 15 feet The
outer chamber A. is divided into
three rooms, the middle one marking
the entrance to the ovens and thus
excluding the outer air. The door
leading from A into the central hall
is very small, li represents the
ovens of the upper tier. C is the
man-hole; '.Lo attendant Hands in

These spaces ure marke 1 ofT by
ridges of dried mud about nine in

access to the interior of the oven.
Arouud the wall and parallel to it
runs a raised ridge six inches in
height: between this and the wall the
fires are lighted. In the top of the
dome is a small aperture about two
inches iuare for the exit of smoke
aud regulating the heat.
The outer wall, four feet thick, is
generally built of sun iried bricks,

from one to two thousand. The-e j

The rioor of the oven i. covered
with a coarse made of paiai leaves;
on this a little bran is sprinkled to
prevent the eggs from rolling. The
attendant changes the position of
the eggs twice a day. taking those
from near the man-hole and placing
them in the outer edge of the circle
and vice versa. At the end of .six
days the eggs are htld op one by one
towards a strong light. If they ap
pear clear and of a uniform color, it
is evident that they have not sac-
ceeded: bat if they show an obacjne j
substance within or the appearance
of different, sLades, the chickens are
already forme 1. The bad eggs are
removed and the others are con
tinued in their places for four days:
at the expiration of this time they
are again examined and then put
back into their places, the same con
tinual shifting fiom the inner to the
outer part of the circle being ob
served. The doors of the oven are
kept hermetically closed by a small
plank well caulked. This is removed
in the forenoon and afternoon and
ouce during the night to see that the
heat is kept at the proper point.
After the eggs have been tifteeu
days in the ovens they are daily ex
amined, and so delicate is the touch
of the attendant that he can at once
distinguish if the egg be alive by the
fact that it should be slightly warm
er than his own skin.
At the expiration of lwenty-ou
days the chicks commence to emerge
from the shells, the attendants con
stantly aiding them. They are
placod in the spaces d d, and left to
dry for nearly forty-eight hours, but
they are not fed. The sale then
commences and iu a few hours they
are spirited away. The temperature
in the ceutral hall is maintained at

This report of the United States
consul at Cairo, Kgypt, ou the state
of artificial incubation at tho present
day in the remote country of tho
Nile is so astonishing as to almost
pass the boundaries of belief. Hut
we have suflicieut proof at hand of
the genuineness of this report; also
that the statements made thereiu
From another report we glean the
following additional facts:
Th two attendants in ehairjn of
the incubatory visited and inspected
consisted of a half blind old man aud
u 10-year old boy. They were locked
securely inci te, and it is only bitrh
authority that t.tiy one is admitted.
Tbe'iecrets of the establishment are
jealously guarde 1 from the natives.
Says the report: "In a few mo
ments I was amid dark passages,
peering into high brick ovens or
chambers, 111 which were tens of
thom:ands of eggs, and iu two of
which were thousands of little chick
ens just from the shells and not yet
able to look after food.''
"The Egyptian Incubatory of to
day is but a reprodution of the one
of thousands of years ago. Iu all
tber-e years the Egyptian breed of
cLickens has w.A changed, and the
manner of reproduction has re
mained immutable. Not long since
I secured the metal stamp ofa chick
en deposited iu a tomb over '2,000
jears ago. and it is a perfect type of
tl.e Egyptian fowl of today, and
when this stamp was struck, artificial
ir.cubatiou was a thing of actual ex
istence in Egypt. The methods of
Latching eggs by artificial means
and a knowledge of constructing ap
pliances for the me Lave descended
through ages from father to son. and

Mort successful operators believe
that the bulb of the thermometer
should rest against the center of an
egg containing a live germ, the end
being slightly elevated. Those fol
lowing this plaa advocate a tempera
ture of pil to l'Ti degrees the rirst
week. lt.id the second week, snd 104
to lOl1. the third week. The natural
heat of the chick raises the tempera
ture cf the egg chamber, as iucuba
tiou progresses. Incubators are run
successfully ithout the thermome
ter touching it fertile egg. but the
bulb is kept on a let el with the cen
ter of the eggs.
If the heat "settles. " the tempera
ture is biuhest ia the center of your
incubator, it caa be overcome by
raising the end trays, bringing them
closer to the tank, liaising the tray
one-fo:irth inch usually makes a dif
ference of one degree.
Complete success cannot be hoped
for when the temperature varies in
different parts of the egg chamber.
Before starting au incubator it is a
good plan to place four or live ther
mometers in different parts of the
machine at tho same time, making
sure that there is but slight varia
tion. Occasionally a machine will
show a difference of three or four de
grees letween the center and end
Thermometers are sometimes de

they are all right.
One of our contributors in this
number is of the opinion that oper
ating a machine ia a carpeted room
increases the amount of moiMure re
quired for a successful hatch. This
operator slates that the hatches were
made with ventilators open, conse
quently evaporation was great; much
moisture was carried out of the egg
chamber, and more than a usual
amount had to be supplied. A wind
will soon dry up n mud hole.
The only absolutely correct guide
as to when, aud how much, moisture
should be supplied is the si.e of the
air col! within the egjj which should
gradually increase as the hatch pro

up when his tarn came. But in act
tion Harry C. Egbert thought only
of his regiment, and to show an ex
ample to the newest recrsit he
courted danger with the sunniest as
pect that a man ia mortal danger
ever wore. CapL I- V. V. Keanou
of the tb infantry, in describing the
battle of San Joan in the Santiago
campaign, thus referred to CoL Eg
bert: "Now and thea I caught a
glimpse of Col. Egbert, who, you
know, ia a little man. and he seemed
to be earned away with the spint of
battle, for be constantly 6miled as he
walked about, and when I was in
donbt and asked him for orders he
said blithely : 'Forward, always for
ward, go forward. " Of coarse, he
was wounded, and the wonder was
that death did not claim him at San
Joan. Another officer who saw him
there remarked that it really looked
as though Col. Egbert was trying to
get himself killed. AtMalinta when
be fell he was leading a bayonet
charge with the same old indomita
ble spirit, and he must have had the
same old inspiring smile on his face.
Bathetic beyond conception were his
his dying words to Geu. Wheaton:
'(Joodby. general; I am done. I'm
too old." The fire of his youth was
his while he had strength to keep the
field, and he would never have been
to old to show men how to die. An
amy with such leaders is itiviucible.
