The value of a small flock of lay
ing hens on a town or village lot or
In a city back yard should not be
underestimntpd. Kven as few as six
or eight hons 'should produce eggs
enough, where used economically,
for a family of four or five persona
throughout the entire year, except
daring the molting period of the fall
and early winter. The product of
men a flock, both in the form of
ggs and fowls for the table, may be
produced at a relatively low cost, be
cause of the possibility of utilizing
table scraps and kitchen waste which
would otherwise be thrown away.
So many records of back-yard
flocks have shown profit that there
can be no question but what back
yard poultry keeping Is profitable
under the proper conditions. The re
cord of a Bmall flock kept in Wash
ington during the past year throws
some light on what can be accom
plished under conditions that pre
vailed during that time. The flock
consisted of seven hens which were
bought December 18, 1917, for $5.80.
This flock was carried through the
ensuing year. Two were killed and
eaten; the other five were carried
the rest of the summer and continued
to ley until September 18, the day on
which the last egg wa.i produced.

teed, $7.01, making a total cost for
acquiring and maintaining the flock,
of $12.81. The returns from eggs
figured on the basis of 40c. a dozen,
which Is very conservative, amounted
to $28.50. The two hens eaten were
the largest t of the flock averaged at
least five poundB In weight. At 30c.
a pound the value of these heiu
.mounded, therefore, to 3. Thur..
the total Income from the flock was
$31. GO, while the total expenses
were $12.81, leaving a return over
cost of fowls and tost of feeding of
$18.69. This figure, however, does
not take Into account the value of
the five bens on hand. These would
average at least four pounds, in
weight, so that, at 30c. a pound, each
hen would be worth $1.20. This
would add to the credit balance $C,
and would therefore show a profit
on tho hons on September 18 of
$24. r.y. It will be noted that the
egg production for the nine months
Involved was very gooff, 13C eggs a
hen, and it. should bo stated in this
connection that the man of the house
is a butcher, and was frequently able
to bring home scraps of moat which
were fed to the hens, and which un
doubtedly contributed greatly to the
favorable egg production.
There was a time when we thought
we could get along without tho
telegraph, the telephone, the locomo
tive and the steamship; but that day
Is gone. And In Just that way these
county agents are rapidly becoming
a real rural necessity. Antiquated
methods on the farm might have
been sufficient In our grandfathers'
day. but Intensified agriculture Is
rapidly becoming the rule today.
And real live-wire workers of this

Almost every county has Its de
