The Plymouth Rocks are in great demand among buyers, and are always easily sold.

The result was droopy chickens and quite a per cent of loss. My plan is to raise the chicks with natural mother, whether hatehed - by hens or an incubator. We make the house to raise them in five feet wide with the low part of the roof to the south. We put a board floor made tight and of planed lumber eighteen inches above the ground, and the roof at the lowest part three feet above the floor. This is to insure dryness end we raise it eighteen inches so that there will be no place for minks, skunks or other enemies to harbor undeF it. At the south side we have a sash with six lights which occupies about half the front, but made so it can be swung up and fastened under the roof, out of the way in hot weather, and the chicks kept in by wire netting nailed bock of the sash. Sometimes these houses are made seven feet wide with a two-foo- t passage at the north side to pass along and communicate with each room, and the feeding is done from the passage. At the south side we inclose with lath nailed so close that the youngest chick can not get through, a yard five feet square which we cover with clean gravel so deep as to prevent the chicks from getting down to the ground, and all pleasant days they are let out here to scratch and dust. We have a door that Blides up and dewn in loose grooves so as that we can open and shat it from the large door from at the north.

F$l Into Milk Somewhat extended experiments have recently been made at the New Hampshire experiment station to ascertain the effect of fats of varipus kinds to milch cows Starting with a normal ration consisting of ensilage, clover hay, vetch hay, ground oats and middlings, which furnished 2.39 pounds of albuminoids and 13.43 pounds of nonalbuminoids, with a nutritive ratio of 1:5.9, palm oil, stearine, cottonseed oil, corn oil and cocoannt oil were added, one at a time and for stated periods. Full details of the experiment will be found in bulletin No. 30 of the New Hampshire station by those who desire them. It will be sufficient here to state the conclusions reached. These are that the first effect of an increase of fat in a cows ration.! to increase the per cent of fat in her milk, but with a continuance of such a ration the tendency is for tbe milk to return to its normal condition. The indications are that the first increase of fat is not due to the oils, but to the unnatural character of the ration, and the results of, the experiment tend to confirm the conclusions expressed in previous bulletins from the same station, that the composition of a cows milk is determined by the individuality of the cow, andthat, although an unusual food may disturb for a time the composition of the milk, its effect is Feeding 3.4?
