San Francisco, formerly com
mander of the East Troop Cavalry
has been found guilty by a general
court-martial of signing a false cer

Blumenberg's sentence is dismissal

Budd has approved the sentence.

do not hear any complaint that the

for all be does, and out.of his $15-

There to a poultry-raialni? establish
ment in Baltimore county at which all
the modern appliances for hatching
and rearing chickens are in practical
operation, says the Baltimore Sun, and
where the i'stufihur" process of feeding;
known for many years in Fronue
gnujaement, is used in fattening both
chickens and ducks for the market
About five thousand chickens and as
many ducks are annually fattened by
this process at this place. Tho owner
of this establishment is an American
who has spent many years of his life
abroad, especially in France, and he
has made a thorough study of the meth
ods followed in the land where gastron
.omy has been reduced to a science and
where the inner man is more assidu
ni.ily considered than anything else in
the world. And it is because years of
experimenting in France have proved
that poultry fed by .the process de 1'en
graissement are more toothsome and
less expensive to the grower than poul
try fattened by the ordinary processes
of nature that he has established this
place in Baltimore county upon an al
most French basis. Incubators are
now by no means the curiosities they
were a few years ago, when the public
paid an admission fee for the privilege
of seeing one in operation. Many
farmers have improved upon the old
time more or lesB careless methods of
raising chicks or ducklings, but there
is no other place in. Mnryland where
tne "stuffing" process U in vogue withall
its modem, humane and economical ap
pliances. The process is based upon the
simple principle that a fowl will grow
fat most rapidly when it is given the
maximum of food and allowed the min
imum of exercise. Fowls fed by "l'en
graisscment" are not only given all the
food they can eat but all they can hold,
and they are not given any exercise.
When the work of feeding fowls in
this manner 1b being put in practice
which is not the case at this season of
the year the interior of the feeding
house is an interesting place. It looks
like a large prison on a small scale,
with tier upon tier of tiny eells reach
ing from the floor to the ceiling. In
cacr- of these cells is a bird being pre
pared for market Its quarters are
rather confining, for it hasn't room to
turn around in and scarcely room to
rise to its feet Running along in front
of these cages, which fit their occu
pants as if they had been made to order,
is a trolley track, high up near the ceil
ing, and from this is suspended the
feeding apparatus proper. It may, by
means of weights, be put at any height,
and may be moved along the trolley
rock from one end of the building to
the other, thus enabling the feeder to
put his machine in front of any cell he
may wish. .
The feed, in the form of soft mush, is
put in a reservoir holding a gallon or
more. From the bottom of the reser
voir the food runs through a rubber
tube into another receptacle, the ca
pacity of which is regulated by a surew,
according to the extent of tho meal
to be given to the fowls at that special
feeding. From the second receptacle
protrudes a tin tube about four inches
long and as thick as a lead pencil, and
this tube is thrust down the fowl's
throat and into the craw. This done
the pressure of a lever emptie3 the con
tents of the receptacle into the fowl
and it settles down to rest, digest and
grow fat until meal time comes again
The fowls do not take kindly to this
method of feeding at first, but niter a
dsy or two.of it they seem to relish its
novelty and luxury, and begin to crow I
and cackle in anticipation as soon as
the feeding apparatus is brought into
L'engraissement has been practiced
in France for many years. Before the
improved appliances were invented tiie
operation was carried on in several
ways. One of these, called cngraisse
ment aux patons, consisted of insert
ing little cakes of dough into the
fowl's mouth, and forcing them down
with the finger. In another case,
engraissement dlentonnair, the food,
in liquid form, was poured into the
bird through a funnel. A third meth
od, still more primitive, called gavagc
a la bouche, consisted in the feeder's
filling his mouth with the food and
blowing it down the fowl's throat As
soon after the hatching as they are
able to determine, the sexes are sep
arated, and when they are three and
one-half months old they ere pot in the
"pens of plenty." Fowls thus treated
have been known to double in weight
during their confinement in the pens.
Their meat is far tenderer and sweeter
than that of fowls raised in the mdi
liar f manner;, and is devoid of all ob
jectionable stringiness. They arc, the
owner of the Baltimore county estub-
luiiment avers, more suitable for table
purposes than capons, and do not have
U be fed and cared for more than a
quarter of the time that capons re

Everybody knows how difficult it is
even for an expert lapidariou to cut
