for profit ami not for pleasure alone.
Hens over two years old begin to
decline In producing power,
rarely lay as mauy eggs as In their
pullet and yearling stages. Provided
that they have been marked with a
toe punch In the days of their youth,
detection of the aged “matrons" will
be a comparatively easy matter.
Before the old hens, the surplus
young stock nnd the male birds are
sent away to market they should be
kept In a small (ven at least two weeks

IC'MIS Worth of Copper.
The oldest ship in the United
States navy, the historic frigate In
dependence, met an inglorious end
at San Francisco a few days ago. She
was burned for the copper rivets In
her staunch old hull. As the flames
leaped Into the sky. marking the pas
sing of the venerable warship that
had flown the Stars and Stripes since
¡1812, a small panic swept through
¡the cities around the bay. Thoughts
¡were of a fire in the Industrial cen
of San Francisco, but It was only
the funeral pyre of the vessel, once
the pride of the United States navy.
For >3515 the old Independence
was sold by the navy department to
the commercial company that covet-
led the metal in its brave hulk. The
easiest way to get that junk waB to
burn the ship.
