THE OLD PLANK ROAD.
N w Jersey's Famous Highway Has
Been Reconstructed and Renamed,
The old plank road lu New Jersey
has been reconstructed and rnuanied
the F.ssox-Hudson Lincoln highway.
Tho historic highway was established
iu 17U" by the colonial legislature of
New Jersey, which cal'od upou "all
good people" to "assist in keeping It In
condition for travel." A public notice
In the New York Gazette June '27. lT'W.
declared the highway would run "from
New-Ark to the pulillck Koad near the
Town of I'.ergcn. leading to Poulus
Hook and established Ferries over the
two suinll Pivcrs l'assaick nnd llack
Ingsacl:. which makes the Instance
from Poulns IIook to New-Ark eight
miles, ami will be a level tind good
Koad when tho Cause-ways arc made."
The road was first known as the
"Ferry rond" because the I'assaic and
nackensack were crossed on ferries.
After the bridges were built and extra
heavy planking was laid crosswise on
the road the ti.inie by which the high
way has been known for upward of a
century and vlii h now goes hack Into
history was given to it.
The new read cost $1,:!1G.01)0, of
which SrWHMHH) represents the cost Of
the bridges. The highway Is a hun
dred feet in width, with ten foot side-
J walks on either side, two twenty-eight
foot roadways, one paved with wood
! hlH'k and the other with close grouted
j granite. Trolley tracks of the Public
Service railway lire raised twelve Inch
es In the center.
! THE BAD ROADS TAX.
The biggest tax the funuer
pays is for bad roads. He puys
It in extra drafting animals, the
food they eat and extra hands
for their cure nnd handling; in
extra vehicles und wear and tear
on them: in lost time und lost in
terest in his farm. Where you
see good roads there Is pros

Dumper Crop in Northwest I
The States of Oregon, Washington

The Increase in acreage has been

The northwest last year turned off

A PURPOSE AND BREED TO FIT.
Many persons start out In tho spring
to raise poultry for a definite purpose
and miss tho mark because their stock
has not the ability to do the stunt
Let It be remembered that American
thoroughbred multry Is built for busi
ness ; that certain breeds fit certain
Hues and of course are a failure out
side their sphere.
For Instance, lirahmas. Cochins und
I.iingshatis arc In particular meat
Hocks, iMttos and Iteds are In par
ticular dual purpose breeds-that Is.
they furnish a good quantity of meat
and fair iiitiutlty of eggs.
Leghorns, Ancoiuis and their type
are egg machines, tho race horso lay
ers, but not much for market meat.
There are over loo varieties In tho
American standard meat, duul pur
pose, egg breeds and ornamental and
the breeder must select a variety tha ft
a specialist for his ptirixisu or he
Cochins and Itrahinas are no fowl
for winter egg plants, but leghorns
Anconas and Andnltislatis uro poor
for broilers, but Pottos nnd lleds hit
Leghorns and Hambiirgs are mighty
poor for roasters and capons, but
Itrahinas, Itocks. Itottes. Cornish and
Iiorklngs are Imui ton.
Thoso who have succeeded In tho
poultry business started with a defi
nite purpose und bred a breed to fit tho
purpose, and that Is the only way to
FEATHERS AND EGGSHELL8.
A Journey through the country
shows the great popularity of the
Hhode Island ltedt. This breed was
originated by the farmers of Rhode
Island, and farmers all over the coun
try seem to naturally take to them.
There is uiiidi to draw man back to
the land, but to some it Is like a
mirage. They find farming different
when they get there. A city real es
tate ai:eut may tell them an alluring
story, hut when they buy und get out
; on the farm and find hard work nnd

"iich a smooth, easy, flowery, shaded
! road to tMVol lifter H II Vl'S
nil Yes, "Tiook
before you leap."
A poultry Journal correspondent
writes: "I am proud to say that I um
devoting my life's work to the breed
ing of poultry. I cannot estimate the
value of the health and pleasure I
have received, and the Income, so far,
has been far beyond my expectations."
Tbo lu"ry profession Is one of the
most respectable and needs no apology
The American hen produces $500,
000,000 worth of eggs annually, and It
Is claimed JtWJ.OOO.ooo are spoiled by
1 bud handling. The hen is one of tho
I hardest workers In creation nnd pro
duces one of the finest finished food
products, and It's a pity humans must
bungle the Job.
Fresh air Is one of the essentials
to hen health, und the fellow who
shuts his hens up In a sweat-box lu
winter with the idea that he Is copy
ing summer conditions uud will there
by get more eggs will certainly get
left. There was a time when those
who advocated plenty of fresh ulr for
hens uud men were culled "fresh ulr
crunks.' That day Is over.
Poultry fertilizer should have ready
sale lit greenhouses. We have never
seen any other manure give as luxuri
ant growth to vines and flowers nnd
blooms In such profusion und bright
colors. Our crimson ramblers made
remarkable growth tho past season
duo to tliis rich, forcing agent.
Very frequently single comb Leg
horns thut have been ut show, confin
ed lu the warm show room, will get
frozen combs on return home because
they aro ut once exposed to the cold.
A little care will save them from this.
Compound tincture of benzoin is good
for frostbite. It takes out the Bore
tiess and glazes the comb so thut the
ulr does not Increase the puln.
The egg records and accounts pub
lished by poultry raisers In tho Jour
nals ure seldom read by the subscrib
ers. While some of these tuny bo true,
there are others like that old story of
the hen that lays an egg every day in
In an experiment at the Missouri sta
tion the thirteen hard grains were used,
and It was found tho bens ate some of
each. This Is a tip from the ben that
she needs and appreciates variety and
she makes the best profit on a mixed
ration, na a trial will quickly convince
any one who is feeding any one grain
