nuggets. These were attached by a
traveling circus company which bad
recently been in Australia and alleged
that throiiuh the defective quarantine
arrangements of I bat country the circus
company had lost many valuable horses
They sought to recover on the nuggets
of thu New South Wales exhibit. An
examination of the law here discloses
the fact that a foreign government can
not be sued in a United States court

were not conclusive, the government of
New South Wales in the circumstances
is a guest of the United Slates and en
titled to immunity, even if the allega

Iou't Begin With Too Many Breeds
Keep Thoronglibreds Only
Ahont the Turkey.
Start out with good stock.
Endeavor to have your flocks uniform.
Keep everything clean; it will pay
An extra dollar or two for a superior
breeding bird is money well spent.
A gooil supply of road dust or dry
earth and fine gravel are won h a gooil
many dollars to a poultry breeder dur
ing the winter.
One of the best remedies for damp
poultry-house floors, also an excellent
deodorizer, is air-slacked lime. Gas
lime is also good.
Do not neglect the water fountains.
Keep them filled with freth, sweet, clean
water. In rainy weather keep the yards
drained so that no impure water will be
where the fowls may drink it.
Do not destroy eggs that have been
deserted by the hen, or in cases where
the incubator lamp has gone out and
they have become cold. They often
hatch a good percentage of strong chicks.
Don't begin with too many breeds.
Select tlie one that best suits vour sur
roundings and stick to it. By careful
selection you can then build up'a strain
that will be satisfactory to yourself and
Although a damp roosting place is an
abomination, fowls prefer a wet roost
free from vermin to a dry one that is in
fested with them. This may explain
why some people's chickens "prefer to

It may be taken as a very good rulo
that short-legged will fatten juore rap

This is important to the broiler raiser,
whose object it is to get nice, plump birds
as soon as possible.
Keep thoroughbred fowls only. There
are enough breeds and enough sizes,
shapes and colors for any purpose. With
a mixed Hock one cannot lay down any
set of feeding rules or glean any reliable
information from his statistics. In other
words, he never knows where he is at.

LOOK AFTER THE MANURE.
It is not necessary for experimental
stations to tell
us that nn.nilies kept
continually exposed to rain and sun
answer, but the second is ol no very dif
ticult solution. Mix manure liberally
with absorbents, and keep tindir lover.
Many old-fashioned bams contain no
cellars for storage of manure; and, for
that matter, there aro very potent objec
tions to putting manure right under
stock, so that poisonous gases will con
tinually arise to befoul tlie air above.
Why not build a cheap "lean-to"
against the barn to cover the manure
which is cast out? This may be made
very rough and inexpensive aiid provided
only with a roof (sides would be better).
The idea, of course, is to prevent the wa
ter from eaves and skv from leaking
through the manure and removing tho
best and most available portions. Bed
tlie stock well with straw and absorb
ents sufficient to retain all the liquid,
says a writer in Practical Farmer. Land
plaster is excellent to fix the ammonia
that gas which is so easily lost; and coal
ashes, as they come perfectly dry from
the stove or furnace, are good'for the
same purpose. It is well known that
the ground beneath a manure pile be
comes saturated with fertility ; so it is
wise to remove this soil to a depth of six
to ten inches, cart it way and replace
with a quantity of new, dry soil, which
in turn should also lie drawn out and
spread on a field or meadow. The mat
ter of saving manure cannot be looked
into too closely. It is folly to depend
on commercial fertilizers when much of
our own manure goes to waste.

American Gardening savs : It is com
mon among amateurs and" some profes
sionals who sow seeds of various kinds,
either in or out of doors, whether the
soil is moist or not, to water it imme

trials 1 have found the aliove practice to
be a serious mistake. If the soil or com
post in which the seeds are sown is moist
at tlie time of sowing, do not water, as
the soil la-comes still" and forms a crust
on the surface, which prevents the seeds
from pushing through. After sowing
the seed in anv soil, except an extremely
dry one, wait a dav or two before
watering, until the soil dries up pretty
well. Then water gently with a line

moderately throughout, which will suf
