years by its use.
Paine's Celery Compound is a great reconstruct-
ant. The weakened, inflamed nerves are built up
and the nerve force increased. The stomach, liyer
and kidneys are kept in healthy action. The body is

timely article In the October number
of "Pearson's Magaxlne" describing
ow pheasants are reared at a Inrgti
pheasant nursery In Hertfordshire.
In the season some four thouxund birds
are kept In pen until ready to become
targets for old sportsmen. The phea
sants begin to lay In April and con.
tlnue to do so, though not necessurlly
every day, until the end of June. The
majority of the eggs are sold to those
sportsmen who prefer to rear the phoa
sants near their own coverts. Each
hon lays on an average from thirty to
forty dozen eggs when In captivity. In
its wild state the hen will only lay Just
enough eggs to form a sitting that Is
to any, nbout fifteen. Thousands u
egg.i are dispatched yearly to all quar
ters of the globe. They require very
careful packing, the eggs each bolng
wrapped separately In soft hay. nnd
then placed In hampers In numbers
varying from twenty-live to two hun
dred. The price changes with the sea
son. In May they will fetch from 4
to 3 per 100; In June they drop to SOs.
for the same number, whllo later on In
the year they are of such small value
that they are luted for food for the
young pheasants. Of course, many
pheasant lay their egRS in the woods,
but for these special keepers, or
"watchers," are constantly on the look
out, with a view to tho removal of the
eggs to safe quarters. If left undis
turbed the wild hen pheasant will In all
probability safely bring out her brood.
She would, however, require constant
attention for many weeks, and It hns
been discovered by long: experience
that It U less trouble to attend to fifty
hens In coops on the farm than to a
dozen wild pheasants scattered In the
woods. Only an experienced man would
locate the nest of a wild pheasant. The
beautiful cream brown essrs are skill
fully hidden under leave and twigs
when the bird leaves her nest. On
these occasions Bhe will run some dis
tance under cover before appearing" In
the open. So well does she assimilate
with her surroundings that the exper
ienced would fall to detect her, even
sometimes she will be actually trodden
upon before she discloses her presence.
