By A. G. LUNN,
Professor of Poultry Husbandry,
O. A. C.
There are two classes of poul
try breeders: The type known
among poultrymen s the multi
plier, who merely mates a male
bird of birds to a flock of chick
ens, with no other purpose than
I to obtain fertile eggs from which
a flock is to be produced, and the
breeder in the true sense of the
word the man who Is ever seek
ing Improvement of his flocks.
being constantly on the outlook
for the individual which, when
properly mated, would be expect
ed to im Drove the future flock.
In the final analysis such a
breeder will meet with a degree
of success that the multiplier can
never hope to obtain.
As to which is the most Impor
tant time of the year for the se
lection of breeding stock is
question among poultrymen.
Methods of Selection.
In the case of egg production
the work of the O. A. C. expert
ment station, the use of the trap
nest and the study of a large
number of individual egg record8
have shown the possibilities of
selecting in various seasons of
the year the best producers in the
flock. This is now possible, even
without the use of the trap nest
At the season of the year when
plans are beinc made for hatch
ing and plans are being made, the
question of selection naturally
arises. If the breeder has been
able, through the various methods
now at hand, to study the indi
vidual production of last year s
flock, it is a simple matter for
him. He knows which were th
early maturing individuals as pul
lets and has watched them during
the summer months and fall and
has selected the late moulters to
hold over for breeders in their
second year.
Breed From Hons.
It is now necessary for him to
give them the proper living icon
ditlons and a feeding menu that
will bring them through the
moult into good condition of flesh
for the work of the breeding sea
son. There are some wbo have
not had an opportunity to stud;
or make a selection from, last
year's flock, or perhaps who do
not have any yearlings and are
upon their pullets as

German Boxer Cheered
In Bout With Frenchie
MAYENCE, France. Sept. 23
Hans Conrad, a German boxer of
local repute, participated In a
boxing tournament Just held un
der the auspices of the French
Army of Occupation, in which the
rest of the contestants were
French soldiers. There were four
Frenchmen (mostly, soldiers) to
each German in the audience. Con
rad won his first bout but was el
iminated in the semi-finals. The
audience gave him a great recep
tion when he won and cheered
him lustily for his gameness In the
losing fight.
It was the first time since 1914
that a German was opposed to a
Frenchman in" a sporting event

good practice to breed from mil
eta. Some argue that they are
not fully matured and have not
the necessary vitality. This may
"ui be true. It is better t.
from hens, becauan
check can be made upon them
after observing th
their pullet yea of production.

Karly Layer nest.
HOW is that to be lon? Tn
the study of the records mentinn.
ed the O. A. C. experiment station
has found that the age of ma
turity and the differences in the
various maturing ages are closely
connected with the yearly pro
duction. For example, it will be
found in a flock all hatched at
the same time that some will
start to lay much earlier than
others. On the average the early
layer will be the best laver for
the entire year. The last ones
to start laying may not lay eggs
enough to pay their board bill.
y marking the pullets as they
start to lay, a very close estimate
can be made upon which will
be the best Individuals in the
flock. There is, of course, the
precocious pullet that starts lay
ing comparatively early without
developing size in the body.
Trap Xest Best Method.
This class should be guarded
against, but if the entire flock is
divided by colored leg bands or
by similar methods to show what
months a particular pullet started
to lay, it will then be possible
about January 1 to make the
proper selection for the breeding
The trap nest is the more ac
curate method because it will de
tect the individual that starts to
lay early, but is apparently lack
ing In vigor and unable to. stand
up under the strain of heavy pro
duction and stops laying after a
few eggs. It is reasonable to ex
pect a pullet laying at the rate of
15 to 20 eggs monthly during No
vember and December to give a
good account of itself for the rest
of the year. For those persons
unable to use a trap nest, selec
tion of the best 23 or 50 per cent
starting to lay first in the flock
will give practically the same
class of bird3.

Well Known Monmouth Man
Succumbs to Unexpected
Paralytic Stroke
(Special to The Statesman. )-
Charles E. Ileriin of Monmouth
died very suddenly last night fol
lowing a pralytic stroke with
which he was stricVon a few min
utes before he passed away.
After being comfortably seated
in a chair reading a newspaper
he became sleepy and retired
rather early. Mrs. Herrin, who
was in an adjoining room, heard
him breathing heavily and went
into the room and found him in
iioh a critical condition that she
hastily summoned a physician,
but the end came without his re
gaining consciousness.
Mr. Herrin had spent practical
ly his entire life in this county
He was born at Wells about 59
years ago, and for a great many
years lived in Independence, and
during the latter part ot his life
had lived in Monmouth. He fol
lowed" logging for many years and
later followed farming. He
owned a part of the farm known
as the old Craven ranch, had a
prune orchard and a tract of land
in Independence upon which he
had been growing hops. He was
mite successful in all his ven
tures. Mr. Herrin was married to
Anna Hall of Buena Vista 30
years ago. She survives him, to
gether with a son and a daughter
Harold Herrin of Astoria and
Mrs. Ernest Riddell of Monmouth.
Mr. Herrin was a member of the
Monmouth lodge of Odd Fellows,
under whose direction the fune
ral will be held Sunday from the
Baptist church in Monmouth.

Valuable Guns Stolen
From Independence Store
24.(SpecIal to The Statesman)
The hardware firm of J. D.
Hibbs & Co. was recently entered
" bnrrlars and four valuable
Winchester rifles were taken. The
proprietors did not discover the
loss of the guns for several days
after the robbery and after tak
ing an inventory found that they
had stolen the best guns carried
In stock all Winchesters. They
were a automatic 12 gauge shot
gun, a 025-20 carbine and a .3
calibre carbine. The value of the
guns waa approximately $275.
The robbers forced an entrance by
means of boring through the pan
el ot the door in the rear of the
building, a hole large enough to
permit a hand to - pass through
and unlock the door. There Is not
a clue of the Identity of the burglars.
A Washington (D. C.) girl has
been, acclaimed as the most beau
tiful girl in the United States. But
that must have been without the
competition of the Salem district.
