wrapper put around It. and It wns put
In the other box. It Is not nn easy
thing to pick up n wrapper of thin
paper from a pile without missing 0110
occasionally, and In doing this the men
adopted different schemes. A new
hand wet his thumb on his tongue for
every wrapper, one who unu ueen
longer In the business and found that
It was unwholesome to be wetting his
thumb on his tongue, had n slice of
lemon beside his pile of wrappers nnd
moistened his thumb In the lemon be
fore picking up a wrapper. The scheme
worked well, but he did not know
whether the ncid of the lemon would
make his thumb sore or not. A third
man had a thin rubber thump stall on
his thumb nnd could pick up wrappers
nil dny long nnd never make n miss.
He was an old hnnd nt the business.

Kattn hy the I'oiituf.
There Iiiih been much talk nhout sell-
ng eggs by the pound. In and around
some of our larger cities there aro
tunny sold In that wny. but they nre not
sold In the shell. Cracked eggs nnd tho
larger ones among the dirty eggs. If
fresh, nre broken out, anil the whits
nnd yolk well benten together. Somo
packers use a churn to thoroughly mix
them, which Is Important, an If they nro
put up Just ub they come from the shell
the yolk becomes dry and menly. Thoy
nre then frozen solid nnd kept In cold
storage until wanted. They are packed
In tins of from ten to forty pounds each.
nnd of course the demnnd for them
comes principally from the bakers, for
cakes nnd similar uses. It Is said ttint
a pound of the frozen egg Is equal to
ten eggs of the average size. They will
not keep sweet long after they aro
thawed out, so tlmt It Is Important that
the user knows how many pounds ho
needs at one time, nnd opens no inoro
than that Tuckers who are enrcful to
avoid putting In nny tainted or spotted
eggs get nhout 12 to 13 cents n pound,
while other grades not ns cnrefully se
lected hnve to he sold nt 10 cents. Wo
are wondering whether this plan could
lie used successfully In putting up
smaller cans for family use. If It can
we expect some one will try It. Massa
Culncn fowls have many good nualf
tics. We should find them among every
Hock of poultry. The guinea fowl can
not, of course, supplant or even rival
the chicken, but there Is 110 more deli
cious or palatable dish than n young
guinea fowl, and the eggs, though
small, nre very rich and delicate. Tho
grentcst objection to them Is their wild
nnture. which prompts them to seek the
woods in scnrclt of nests. Tho young
birds will leave the nest almost as soon
ns dry. nnd unless the mother and
young nre confined In n tight coop tho
tiny things will stray off nnd die. They
nre tender until two weeks old. after
which time. If protected nt night, they
grow rapidly, and require practically
no attention. They must hnve free
range, nnd when given It will gnther nil
they require to ent, nnd during winter
weather they need no special care, since
they do not begin to lay until spring,
nnywny. They nre not subject to nny
of the many diseases which atlllct
chickens, nnd renlly merit the attention
of farmers and potiltryiuen.
Good Cure of Houf Iay.
Too many nre nfrnld of n little work
nnd trouble, says an Iowa farmer. I
clean the pens twice n week. Hogs
nre supplied with plenty of water and
charcoal to prevent disease. Air slaked
lime Is used for a disinfectant. With
proper care there Is very little danger
of disease. There are preventives, but
no cure, for cholera when it gets n
start. I always plant a patch of pota
toes for feeding hogs In the fall to get
them to market quick. I started a
buueh of hogs on potatoes, fed them
sixty days with chop nnd cooked pota
toes with a little whole grain, and th
hogs made n gain of two und n halt
pounds per day. or 1.10 pounds per hog.
Core should ho taken in starting hogs
on potatoes. They should bo fed spar
ingly nt first. Increasing a little every
time they nre fed. not feeding more
than they will elenn up. The best mar
ket for hogs Is nt 200 to 250 pounds
ItitHlitess Not Overdone.
The poultry business is not overdone.
It Is like nny other business In that It
must he properly conducted. There Is
nlwnys n ready market for poultry nnd
eggs every dny In tho year, and there
Is n demnnd ubove the market prices
for high grade stock and eggs. We ore
speaking now from the standpoint of
tho market poultrymun. Conditions are
the same, however, with the fnncler.
If you will show us n poultrymun who
Is unable to dispose of his stock nt
profitable prices, wo will show you one
who docs not take advantage of hla
opportunities nnd conduct his business
upon a business busls. Ilcllable Poul
