The propensity of some hena to sit.
in season or out. on eggs, atones, door
knobi or anything that cornea handy.
Is ono of the most grievous afflictions
or the poultry keeper. In his lutercst
is reprinted the description of n "sum
cure" discovered hy a correspondent
o,f the Chicago Chronicle In Lcsucur.
Tho cure consists of a cheap watch
that ticks loudly and clearly, and U
enclosed In a white, egg-shnjied case.
When a hen manifests a desire to sit
at the wrong Hme, tho poultry man
gently places under her this bogus egg,
and tho egg dooi the rest
Cheerfully It ticks away. The hen
soon begins to show signs of uueasl
ness. She stirs the noisy egg with her
bill, thinking perhaps that It Is already
tlmo for It to hatch, and the chicken
lu It wants to set out She grows moro
ami more nervous as tho noise keeps
on, and finally she Jumps oft tbo nest
and runs round a while, to get cool.
Generally sho returns to her self-
Imposed duty, but things get worse and
worse with her. She wriggles about
and cackles, ruffles her feathers and
looks wild, until nt last, with a fren
zied squawk, she abandon the nest
lor good nml all. Tho fever of Incu
bation la broken up completely.
Tho Lcsuour poultryman declares
that ho has novcr found a hen that
could stand tho strain of tho conversa
tional egg for moro than three hours.
