In the experiment'ho restrictions were placed upon the own crs aa to how the fowls were to bo fed, cared for or managed. They wiere simply asked to produce by the usual method of feeding, the greatest possible number of eggs at the low- est possible cost. In all, .records .were kept; ,of fowls for the four months, December to March, inclusive. The -average of a dozen chickens with these hens was 18 cents, raising from a minimum of about 6 cents a dozen to a maximum of a dozen. The average price during the cxperimen was 25 cents a dozen. ,Tbc cost o food consumed during the four months was at the fate of for 100 hens, and the net profit, or. about a month on 100 hens. Each 100 hens on the average laid daily 22.8 eggs; of about one egg for fits to bti made by a well managed lock of chickens, is about a ven :a year. Souie.. people make a omfoftable living on from 200 to 300 hens, by selling eggs, fattening cockerels and raising pullets. But a man must understand hii business and attend to it, if he does well. It 3 a considerable amount of capital into the poultry busi- ness on a sufficiently large scale to make a living from it. He should have between and ca- pital; besides owning hie ground. His hens one to two years old' will cost 50 cents apiece, -while the cost of housing and yarding them will av- erage close to apiece. Gener- ally there Js more inqney in egg pro- duction than there is in any other form of poultry farming. ALFALFA FOR HORSES On thtffocding of Alfalfa horses Jos. E.

Yerkes, of this city and Chicago, sail- od on the "Mauritania." Just before sailing he was asked by reporters what he thought of the solution of the transit problem in New York and the possibilities of a tunnel under the English Channel. As to tunnelling the channel, h said that English promoters and in- vestors' had awaited with much in- terest the completion and successful operation of the Hudson river tunnels s the tunnelling of the Hudson ar> wered many questions before the English engineers. In his opinion while ultimately this great work will )e undertaken, it would not b.'. be- cuu in the immediate future.

She accepted Brockway soon after became innocu- lated ith the western fever, and came south of here, wh re he opened a store. Gradually he and the nurse drifted apart, and a few years later he gave another woman his' name. Mrs. Brockway died two years ago, leaving her husband and- a four-year- old child. Through friends at Vicksburg Brock- vay l.arned that Miss Oswalt was single, and after obtaining her ss he opened correspondence. old attachment, begun 20 years before, reasserted itself, and Brock- way did not havi much difficulty in persuading Miss Oswalt, then living Chicago, to come west, and the wedding followejl.
