core and yield more certain Then of course there K noble in an occupation that has for its sole purpose the furnishing of ed squab on toast O It may be well at this point to set the reader right on the nature of a squab A squab is rather a young pigeon It is a nestling Baby being by nature indolent and possessed of hard-working parents stay in their nests from four to weeks by which time they have become almost full grown While they are still in the nests they aie squabs and their meat is of that fatty tible nature which them in- valuable for invalids and delights the epicure After they leave the and bo- gin to run around they are no longer but stags though they be but five or six old The cd eye cannot tell the stag from the squab But Cosby assures the Stroller that the pigeon

produce on the average of seven pairs of squabs a year the hens lay two eggs at a time an almost invariable reckons the cost of ing a squab to marketable age all expenses included at 25 cents The average weight of a squab is one pound The average price of squab i- 40 cents during the summer and as high as Go cents in winter So the profit per squab may be reckoned at from 15 to -10 cents But of course the pigeon man must watch out for Cosby said The pairs are identified by mates being given the same number By keeping record of the various nests it is thus easy to discover pairs that are not raising at least 12 squabs a year pairs can be separated and after time the male being given a new hen and vice versa Frequently this brings beneficial re- suits If not the birds be gotten rid of for
