POULTRY KEEPING PROFITABLE.
Any farm is worth $10 per acre
more when it is well fenced and di
vided into convenient fields and lots.
As there is more or less work and ex
pense entailed in getting a good hog-
tight fence in place, one should get
only the best material, and spend
more time In setting and stretching
than when the common barbed wire
Woven wire, even of the 26-inch
width, exerts several times the strain
as that o f the three-strand barbed
wire, and the corner-posts must be of
good size, and well braced.
Posts cut in the winter and allowed
to season till the summer before being
set will be more satisfactory, but this
plan is not always practicable.
We have used posts a rod apart on
our farm, but I have learned from ex
perience that that is too far and now
I am putting them 12 feet apart.
Set the corner or end posts first,
then drive the others in line between
them by stretching a wire on the
ground. This wire must be stretched
tight; and In driving do not let the
post touch the wire, as it would push
it out of line.
The work o f "getting ready” Is the
most important item in making this
kind of fence, Blnce a quarter o f a
