For Winter Kcci.
It Is not an easy matter for one not
having had some years of experience In
poultry raising to feed the laying hens
during the winter profitably. Com cuts
too large a figure In the winter food of
poultry. It Is a valuable food beyoud all
question, but It Is fed too liberally wheu
eggs are wanted. An almost perfect
food for laying hens Is clover hay, but
of course they cau not eat enough of
this to give them the food quantity
needed. The best way to feed clover
hay Is to have lt chopped tine nnd then
scattered on the floor in small quanti
ties for the bens to eat of It as they
will. This Is better than mixing It with
the grain or the soft foods. Of grains
If one has a supply of corn, wheat and
oats with which to alternate, these
with the clover hay, bono meal and ani
mal toM once a week will keep tho
hens In good laying condition. Quanti
ties and times and methods of using
tho several grains are best worked out
by the feeder according to the needs
of his flock and his location. In cold
sections moro corn will be necessary
than lu warmer locations.
Draft noriei Popalar.
The draft horso now enjoys tho high
est prosperity and greatest popularity
of any breed of horses among the
American farmers. The prejudice
against the draft horso being too big
has given place to tho universal desire
to raise Uiem as largo as possible nnd
farmers generally want to raise draft
horses for the market, and they have
learned that tho big draft mares and
young geldings make tho best farm
teams, and as fast as they mature tho
markets take them at good prices.

Hint en Cornhnilcinir-
Uso a horso to pull over your corn
shocks. Take a rope about eighteen
feet long, attach one end to the single
tree, carry tho other end around tho
shock and fasten to singletree a'lso. Seo
that tho rope Is nround tho shock nbonl
twenty Inches from the ground. A
slight pull of the horso will bring over
tne shock. With n boy to lend tho
horse and n handy hitch to the ropo
you can average a shock a tnlnuto and
have It lu much better shape for busk
ing than when torn down by hand.
You can In thin way pull over a day's
busking while the dew Is on, and tho
fodder will bo damper for husking than

Winter Poultry Yarf.
When poultry are confined during tho
winter they should have n yard In
which to run on pleasant days. If no
scratching shed can be provided. A
good plan Is to protect tho yard on tho
windy Ride by piling cornstalks high
against tho fence. Then have a heap
of roarse, strawy mnnuro In the yard,
sufficiently large to keep the soil from
freezing hard. Cover as large a spaco
as possible with this heap, or. better
still, have several such heaps, and pro
tect them with boards, so that tho
fowls cannot get nt them and scratch.
Uncover one of these heaps at a time,
and pile the material In another spot,
then spado up the soil where It lay. If
the pile was high enough the soil can
lie easily loosened, and. except In very
cold sections, will not freeze hard again
In several days. A little grain thrown
on this spaded space will keep tho
fowls busy and happy. An hour each
day when the sun Is shining brightly In
a spot like this will keep the fowls In
good shnpe, and they will turn out eggs
A Ration forPheep.
Where there Is u fair supply of mixed
clover and timothy hay on hand, It Is
comparatively easy to carry a flock of
sheep through the winter at light ex
pense, provided they are In good shape
when they are put Into winter quar
ters. With all tbe clover and timothy
they desire a grain ration of a pound
n day, made up of two parts of wheat
one part bran and one part oats, with
a handful of oil meal, will keep them
In splendid shape, even tho breeding
ewes. Enouga roots should be obtain
ed to give them an occasional feeding
of them. If the supply of hay Is short
corn stover may be substituted for
roughage, but If this Is done it may bo
necessary, with some sheep, to Increase
the grain ration slightly. The ration
as given will be found very satisfac
tory by feeders whose crop of corn Is
limited, but who have a fair supply of
bay and corn stover, nnd can buy tho
grains mentioned at a fairly low price.
II u IT Breeds of Fowls.

seem to be ono of the poultry fashions
of tbe present. Buff Plymouth Hocks

same as for Barred Plymouth Itocks,
but the pltiuinge should bo an even
shade of golden builf. Golden Wyan-
dottes are newcomers and very popu
lar. Th- buffs are probably the most
numerous nnd best liked of the Co
chin family. Buff Leghorns, a com
paratively new but very popular varie
ty, have taken n foremost position
solely on their merits. Exchange.
Keeplnc App ei in Winter.
If largo quantities of fruit are to be
kept there Is no way equal to the mod
ern cold storage process, but this Is ex
pensive. Oftentimes, however, one has
a few barrels of tine fruit designed for
home use or to keep for a select trade,
and theso may be kept In good shnpe
by either of the following methods.
Only tho finest nnd most perfect speci
mens are used lu either case: Tako
good barrels, nnd In the bottom of each
place oats an Inch deep. Then wrap
each apple in newspaper and pack a
layer on the oats, not permitting tho
apples to touch. Then put In another
layer of oats, and on this a layer of
apples, as before. Continue this until
the barrel Is full. The other method
Is simply to omit the oats and pack tho
apples In the same way, after wrapplug
each specimen In oiled or waxed pa
per. In either case the barrels must bo
kept lu an even temperature, where It Is
cool but above the freezing point.
