X. Barker in The Alberta Home- stead.) Nothing perhaps can indicate better the- progress that Alberta is making towards greater things than the poul- try Fanciers arc bu the in- crease, and we- look forward to -a time when birds at will be number- ed: by instead of hundreds. Alberta is well adapted to the rais- injc of especially turkeys which decline to flourish in wet coun- tries, whep they have to travel much in wet jrrass in the days of their youth. The type of our birds is improving and the number of good ones. The purely fancy varieities are not so much, in evidence as what are called the utiUty. breeds, but these latter aro very' beautiful; especially when bred and well shown..., THE BRAHMA It may perhaps expedite matters and make it easier work with the catalogue, so. we first come to the good old Brahma, the father and mo- ther of the poultry, fancy for it was through -the introduction of these, pr. as some early birds were called, the Shanghais, that the., poultry fancy came with a rush and started to ffrow with such, volume, that at the present day there are few towns of v. size in any English speaking com munities that do not have their poul- try shows. The Brahmas at Leth bridge .wore typical, but lacking a lit tie in size and color, but good repre- sentatives of a breed that has done so much, for us. The light Branma is still a sort to keep, a eboc winterlayer, anc good on the table, even if somewhat high and Angular when dressed. For a city lot they are excellent. LANGSHANS Langshansjnuirtered well and we havo "good ones in" Alberta, especially at Calgary. Phe best cock at Lethbridge had to take'a back seat because he would not carry his tail straight, faults of We must have glaring structure in our breeding BANCROFT FUwMt Collar far Fall Specially mart, with rtyte and comfort; in. back; 2H in. at front.

For style, service tion, look no fur- taer than this birds as these may be perpetuated and severely injure us in time to come, so he was put aside, though a previous winner. The show of Lang- shans was most promising, but breed- ers must be careful to breed for sound color and avoid the purple bars on the feathers. Black with a clear rreen sheen is what we want, earned on n. large and upright frame. Sweet in the meat, good at the, egg pan and one of the handsomest birds on earth is the Langshan- BARRED ROCKS Next we arrive at the Barred Rocks the American fowl, the bird of the public. These were displayed in good ly typical in shape, but, on the whole, not quite as-good in col- or as we like to see. At Lethbridgt we usually see a lot of Rocks, some rackers, but we wish they were not "quite" so dark. These oirds, espec- ially the hens, should, when of proper color, blue or blue gray; not black and white with smutty beaks slack legs. We want a blue grey aird. bright in color with gorgeous orange; beak, and deep yellow legs: The winning cock was a fine, big fel- ow of splendid type but could have been little better in surface and un- der color. Yet he won well as: he was what we want of true Rock type, ong enough in qody, goodjn back.- a fine prominent breast, good top, i- e., well arched neck and lots of style. The 2nd was a good bird but not quite so'typical. The Barred Rock hens, eight in number, were better, though several were dusky in color. The first, very typical specimen, ex- celled in color, presenting that bright blue gray appearance with "sufficient blue color between the bars to make her-show up well. The second is .a very hen. heavy and of true Rock type but too dark. Cockerels weru keep our Wyandottes and Rocks dis- bca'i an '.liifipt Uri! we .dark in Jcir t though good in typo. Th.: thir 1 lot in shape and tail. THE WHIi'ti ICUCKS The White Rockn, uot (juite us nu merous.-wc thought very good.

The winner a grand, bi bird, white, very white, ciuills andal :as he should is, a bit. shooped off behind for a Rock The second, also a good one, ;is late-one and the more we look at him the better we like" him. In times to come he may.; beat the first for he is more characteristic in back and tai and should improve with age. Th pullets, four, were all good. BUFF ROCKS The Buff Rocks took quite a little sorting. The winning cock is very even in color arid of true Rock "shape but could be bigger. Hens, the first is a graiiu hen, clear in color, gooc in type, not showing Wyandotte type in back or tail, of good size with ots of style, and very rich in under- :olor. She later won the special for >est Rock hen. second, a good jird, was clean of foreign color in the winir. The third good in color but smaller. Buff Rock cockerels were rattier dis- appointing. The first is a nice and the others, though tycical, show- ed white and black in tail or ome had both. The pullets were >etter in color than the cockerels. WHITE WYAXDOTTES White Wyanflottea were- cfuito a reat. The winning cock is fine, white, broad :and short in back, short on the leg, deep and blo'cky and neat in a good pne anywhere, a typical Wyandotte. The hens were gobd; the winner good in type'" and siz6 mid vgry white. The second another- good one and not much to choose between some" of the others. The winning- cockerels were bdth cood. and here, we think, the "second should have been first, though it is a close thing. The -pullets' were sweet blocky. u-ell rounded, the bird of curves. Here let us remark we must shorter, more compact and blocky with a type of its'ownT 'T The Silver Wyandottes were typical but only moderate in color, but some nice buffs were- shown by Mr. E. .J. Cook. BUFF ORPINGTOX Buff Orpingtons were great classes and are running strong.. The two cocks brought both off color; or disfigured skin will always sump on the snind of the vidual.
