PRESERVIrlG EGGS IN WATER GLASS

During the late spring and early
bummer eggs usually are abundant
aad reasonable in price, and that
Is the time to preserve them for
use during the winter, when they
are generally scarce and the
prices high. Fresh eggs, properly
preserved, may be kept from 6 to
10 months and be almost as good
for all household purposes as fresh

' To preserve 15 dozen eggs in

(1) Select a 5-gallon crock
(earthen or stone) and clean it

quarts of water, place in the

If water glass is not obtainable,
lime may be used. It 1s not con
sidered so good as water glass, as
in some instances eggs preserved
by this method have tasted slight,

limewater has proved entirely
To preserve with lime, dissolve
2 pounds of unslacked lime in a
small quantity of water and dilute
with 5 gallons of water that has
previously been boiled and cooled.
Allow the mixture to stand until
the lime settles, then pour off and
use the clear liquid. Place clean,
fresh eggs in a clean earthenware
crock or Jar and pour the clear
limewater into th vessel until the
eggs are covered. At least two
inches of the solution should cov
er the top layer of eggs.
An Infertile Ejcg
An infertile egg is one laid b
a hen that has not been with a
male bird for two or three weeks
and the germ cell of which is not
fertilized. The length of time va
ries somewhat, but ordinarily al!
eggs will be infertile after the
male has been separated from the
flock for from two to three weeks.
II the. germ cell of the egg has
not been fertilized the egg will not
hatch, and it is impossible for a
blood ring to form in such an egg
when exposed to heat, which so
often happens with fertile eggs.
Infertile eggs will keep much lon
ger than fertile ones, and are best
for all purposes except hatching.
Eggs for preserving should be
fresh and clean and if dirty should
not be washed before preserving
as this removes the coating from
the egg shell and they will not
keep. Real dirty eggs should not
be preserved at all.
I'ftlng Preserved Ecg
Fresh eggs preserved according
to these directions will usually
keep from six to ten months and
can be used satisfactorily for all
purposes in rooking and for the
table. If. however, preserved eggs
are to be boiled, a small hole
should be made with a pin in the
larger end of the shell before
placing them in the water, to al
low the air in the egg to escape
when heated and thus prevent
TO SELECT THE HEAVY
PRODUCING HEN TOLD SIMPLY
The Single Pen and the Trap Nest Methods Are the
Only Sure Ways, According to the Men Who Make
Life Studies in the Poultry Breeding Industries.
Twenty years ago the writer
advocated the use of trap nests as
the only sure way of detecting the
good and bad layers in the flock.
Since that time many systems have
been put forward claiming to pick
the heavy layers from the drones
all have a certain value but
only one. the tingle pen system,
has any real value In recording
egg production from individual
In the early days we had "a
trap nest boom." The boom con
sisted of hundred of articles rel
ative to the subject of the identi
fication of the Individual layer.
The numerous advertisements
soon claimed to have stock for
sale with high trap nest records
but the "boom" was mostly on
paper, for farms at that time with
trap nest outfits were few and far
The erudeness of the trap nests
then in vogue bad little to do with
Their non-success was their
non-use. Since then hundreds of
poultry keepers have found trap
nesting to be the only practical
way of picking the layers and
The most that can be said
against trap nest methods is the
extra labor ft Involves.
The trap nest is now quite com
mon In use. It Is a simple me
chanical device by which the hen,
when she enters to lay locks her
self In. When she Is released the
number of her 'leg band Is taken
and generally recorded on the
small end of the egg. The reason
it is put on the small end Is be
cause in hatching this end la not
likely to be broken.
There are even today very few
breeders who know the exact per
centage of every bird In their
flocks. They know from what
particular pen on mating the bird
comes from, bat they cannot tell
from which hen In the breeding
pen the particular chicks come
from. Thia can only b e done by
Some breeders trap nest for the
period of early production and
again in the period of low produc
tionfor the purpose of flock im
provement this will suffice but
(or advertising records the full
year must be taken.
with the dawn of the trap nest
came the recognition of the "200"
egg hen. That she had existed for
some time there can be no deny
ing. Tne same may be said today
of the "300" egg hen.
Tnere can be no donbt that the
"200" errer was a discovery that
can be credited to the trap nest
but not quite entirely so with the
"300." She Is the single pen pro
geny of the "200" egger and the
Poultrymen generally, at that
time had but a limited knowledge
of the laws of breeding for egg
production (Trap nest methods
were In use by a few now wel'
known breeders, over 20 years ago
in cngiana) ana it was but nat
ural that the actual discover ot
the "200" egg hen should at once
suggest their use as breeders foi
the purpose of increasing the
productive ability of the domestic
hen. In theory this is sound, but
like produces like only in a limited
degree Mendel's law exnlain
this. Thus we can select our heavy
eg producers, mate their progeny
and get high producing stock; but
nature steps in and calls a halt. It
Is the persistent layer that we
want la our laying flocks, more
so man the phenomenal high pro
ducer, for it has been proved that
these high producers are not fit
for the breeding pea. One of the
uses of the fatureTor the single
pen and trap nest, will be to en
able breeders to "eull" the "300"
egg hen and to keep her out of
the breeding pen.
The trap nest has been the
means of detecting the hens that
lay sterile eggs, mis-shapen eggs
and thin shelled and small eggs;
also of discovering the hen that is
Where trap nest methods In
volve labor that cannot be spared,
the single pen system should be
used. It pays to know the quality
of your breeding stock.

that little Milly is in Kenny's of

My face must have shown rav

a little short laugh.

Her voice and face hinted at
culinary horrors untold, as she
turned and went down the stair
way, leaving me to gather myself
together in order to face this un
expected dilemma, that of meet

had led her to an actual attempt

Of what was Kenneth Stock
bridge thinking, to allow her to
do such a thing? I asked the
question of myself angrily, re

Milly Stockbridge was sitting in
her husband's accustomed chair,
swinging one foot and appearing
exceedingly well ratisfied with
herself and all the rest of , the
world. Mr. Stockbridge was no
where to be seen, and one of the
older teachers, a woman who had
been in the school as long as Al
ice Holcombe herself, looked up
at me a bit uneasily as I entered.
MiUy Stockbridge's eccentricitfes
of temper were so well known
that even those who wers not in
the secret of her insane jealousy
were generally a bit nervous when
in her pretence.
"Oh. Mrs Graham, how do you
do?" Mrs. Stockbridge rose to
meet me, greeted me, erfuslvely.
"I pi having such a lark. Ken

"How kind of you!" 1 said with
as much enthusiasm as I could
muster, for with the knowledge
that her visit to us wag without
her husband's knowledge, I could
not help but wonder just what
particular mischief was brewing
in her brain.
