At each crossing tha bareheaded

streets wera blocked with parked ears

police at each corner held In check all
vehicular movement east or west.
Tha man held close ro hla rompan

down tha avenue through tha rout
Homewhere, a bell had begun to toll.
At tba southern end of tha avenue,
where tba crowd had become leas

ruptly. In tha blare of curb lights his
'earthing eyes had caught eight of a
line of blue-coated figures.
Closer to hint he drew hla chance
acquaintance, whose own groteaque
neaa eerved to heighten the Illusion of
I'lrarre mummery created by hla penal
stripes, and ha turned them back op
tha avenue again.
Dropping heavily down upon tha
rlty, out of tba night, still came the
tocelnllke reverberations of tha bell.
Hut three blocks north the man,
peering ahead through tha crowd, saw
a second line of blue that reached trom

and turned It The door was locked.
With cool fury ha gripped tha handle
with both hsnda and twisted steadily.
It wss quietly done, but tha screw of
the handle shank was sheared off by
the strain and the knob came loose
In his hsnds, though the lock atlll held.
The man dropped the knob silently In

appreciatively and turned to regard
mora closely whoever else might atlll

Ha found himself face to face with
two black-robed, black-hooded slaters

of the two answered the Inquiry In his

Through tha din of tha city's bar

out. of the night, the bell's alarm.

CONTROL OF ROUP
BY SANITARY RULES
Contagious roup Is probably caused
by unsanitary conditions of the hen
house and yards. It la sggravated by
cold, dump weather. Correction of
the causes, so far ss possible, Is most
sdvlsuhle, as remedies are slow work
ing and not aura In effect
It cauaea a loss, not only from
heavy death rata, but also from tha
Interference with" egg production and
weakened vitality In breeding. It Is
very contagious, especially In damp,
cold weather, and attacks both young
and old stock.
Contagious roup Is probably easier
l" Identify than any other poultry dis
ease. It usually starts like a simple
cold, with a thin, watery discharge
from the nose and eyes, Thla secre
tion baa a peculiar, offensive odor.
Inflammation seta Into the nasal pas
sages, eyes and spaces Just below tha
eyeballs. The l,!r! tlrn nfen ronrh
snd sneeze, breathing becomes ouUy,
snd If tha air psaugrs of the nose
become entirely blocked, they brepthe
through their mouths, Tba birds soon
lose tbelr appetite and become de
pressed, their wings drooping and
their feathers ruffled. The secretions
from the nose and eye change from
fluid to yellowish, cheese-like masa.
This grows rspldly about the eyelids
and the nostrils. One or both eye
become enlarged and swelling may ap
pear oa the head.
' The exact cause Is not known.
Whatever K Is, the organism la bard
te kill, because It penetrates Into the
tissues. If the formations about the
head are removed, the uneven bleeding
surface which Is left forms a new
mass In 24 to 48 hours.
Infected birds ecarry the disease
from place to plan and Infect others
by contact Food and water may be
come contaminated by the secretions
from sick birds snd healthy birds be
come Infected In ibis way.
Roup Is easily controlled by proper
management and housing. Damp, un
sanitary, poorly ventilated, over
crowded, drafty quarters are con
ducive to Ita spread. The first treat
ment la to remove the cauae at once.
Only valuable birds should have Indi
vidual treatment A simple cure for
the sick bird la as follows: Dace It
In a dry, well-ventilated place away
from the other birds, snd give It plen
ty of fresh water and feed. Every
morning and evening remove all the
matter from the eyes and nostrils of
tbs bird snd dip Its bead Into a solu
tion of bichloride of mercury (1-1000).
Thla la made by placing one 7.3 mer
cury bichloride tablet In a pint of
water. Hold the bird firmly and Im
merse the head until the eyes are cov
ered, keeping It there a few seconds
or until It struggles. In most cases,
the following procedure Is advisable:
- Dltpoee of bad cases by killing and
Isolate birds having colds.
Be sure quarters are dry and tight
on ale aides, with adequate opening In
tha front for ventilation nd light to
reach every part of the house.
Allow at least three square feet fioor
space per bird.
Place a little kerosene on the top
of the drinking water or one, TJ-graln
mercury bichloride tablet In a gallon of
water In a nonmetal container. These
should never he used more than ten
days In succession.
Place one pound epsom salts per
100 birds In the drinking wateror a
Judgment in Feeding
Good Judgment must be exercised In
feeding the pullets after they are ma
ture and are In their winter houses.
Usually eight quarts of hard grain Is
fed to one hundred birds a day. One
third or one-fourth of thla amount
should be fed In the morning and the
balance at nlgbt When about half
the btrda are laying well they may re
quire aa much aa ten or twelve quarts
per day. Sometimes, however, eight
quarts la too much and It la necessary
to cut dovrn on this amount Mash
should always be kept before them In
hoppers or feeders.

It Is a good plan during worm weath

Broilers snd frys are most profitable

Breeds of dnlry cattle vary In their
