Si nator Culloni has introduced a bill
intended to meet one of the weak points
that experience has found in the inter
state commerce act. This proposed
amendment is intended to (otce the ac
ceptance by one railroad of the traflic of
another, for the purpose of making a
continuous line and Hi further purH-se
of preventing railroads from discriminat
ing I -el ween roads in the acceptance of
tratlic. Section 3 of the original inter
state eoininciee act w as meant to do this,
but the railways, as Senator Ciillum
puts it, are im bued to be technical, and
there seems to Ih some ditlictilty in car
rying out tho law in that rvcard. An
other amendment by Mr. Culloni defines
with positivcucss the meaning of the
word " hue " applied to railroads, and is
1nie11d.1l to our th act of a defect and
meet the decision ol Jude Itrcwcr, who
in a case before him in the I'nitiil State
Circuit Court construed the word line to
mean something d tlerent from th con
struction which aoiwiimg to Mr. Cull.mi
the franier of the law intended it should
mean. Th 'ast amendment repeat the
present clauso making violators of the

THE EARLY-HATCHED PCLLET.
Carefully Breeding and Selecting to
Secure Fall and Winter Lay
ers Short Pointers.
I wish to give as briefly as possible
what I have learned by experience in
carefully breeding and selecting to secure
fall and winter layers, as our egg market
here in Central New York is the best as
to price during these months, savs a cor
respondent of Farm Journal. I used to
think that pullets hatched in June were
just as good for winter layers as those
hatched in April, but tne last lour or live
vears I have bv careful selection and
comparison found that theearly-hatched
pullets are more prontauie, taking the
year through, than late-hatched ones. I
have found that the June pullets gener
erally did not commence to lay beforu
the last of January or the first of Fell
ruary, even when the conditions were
favorable, while the April-hatched ones
would commence to lay by the last of
September or first of October and con
tinue to lay until next March or April
without showing any disposition to set,
giving me a very profitable return for
feed and care bestowed upon them. It
is " ell to have a lew pullets hatched out
late fr the next summer egg-laying if
one has a variety ol fowls which alter
living all fall and winter do not lay as
well the next summer. My pullets which
were hatched out a year ago la-t April
have laid well this summer. Of course,
1 have ha'1 to break them up from set
ting two or tlnee times, but that is easily
done; just shut them up a few days in a
small coop, and they will get over it and
go to laying again in a few days. As you
ask about the varieties I keep, I would
say in reply that I first tried the White
Leghorns, and found that April-hutched
pullets of that breed would commence to
lay about October 1 and continue to lay
until the next April or the very last of
March before wanting to set, thus hav
ing a nice profit during fall and winter.
The laet tw o years I have used a cross,
combining the following varieties : Hou
dans, Dominick and White Leghorns.
They did finely, laying a large number
of eggs. I had a few pullets which were
hatched out about April 10, which com
menced to lay about the middle of Sep
tember the same season, This year I
have a cross between the Houdans,
White Leghorns and Plymouth Rocks,
and they promise to prove equal to the

Influence that a burn has in the keetiimr
ot stocK well, winch means a light, dry,
clean anil weu-ventuated stable, we 'n-
cliue to the idea that the barn should be
the ration barrack, and the cows should
be stabled in an L to that barn, ex
tending to the south, so as to get sun
light abundantly on three sides of it;
that it should be of lumber, double-
; boarded, so as to have a dead-air space
in the walls, a good-sized window for
; each three cows. The stable should not
be less than thirty-four feet wide for
two rows of cows and nine feet clear on
the inside, and each cow should have at
least three feet four inches of space to
I eactl ) ,f possible, and one between
every other cow in any event, and these
cows tied either with halters or sns-
fiended stanchions. Such a stable, with
oft for hay or straw, ready for the cows,
can be built for not far from (16 per cow,
and is in every way In-Her for a dairy of
cows than it is possible to construct a
basement stable; and when once made
it can be kept dry and free from chilli
ness, which is the "damper" on profit
able milk-making in the winter. In our
opinion the great castle-like barn has no
place in the economy of the modern
dairy. What is wanted is a perfect as
possible stable, and the barns that al
ready exist may be cheaply made to hold

more concentrated form of silage, clover,
