Attica . Hemphill amp Bro. Profit in poultry. What an Man with Small capital May do. A correspondent of the country gentleman describes a poultry farm he visited some time ago to show what an eur Terri sing Farmer who is looking for larger profits accomplish. A Small farm mostly in Timber but having a few acres of tillable Laud and a comfortable House had been purchased very cheap. The Timber had been Cut and nearly enough lumber and stove Wood marketed to pay for the farm. A part of the lumber had been saved and used for building poultry houses. Several of these houses had been cheaply built out of the rough lumber the owner doing most of the work himself. They were double boarded with paper Between the boards also Board roofs and Earth floors were made and windows on the South Side. They acre made very warm but no Money was spent on appearance or ornament. The inside fixtures were few and simple. The houses were 30 to 40 feet Long and about 12 feet wide. On one Side were the perches running the whole length of the building with a platform under them. On the other Side were nest boxes and feeding troughs. The space Between these was Given to the hens for a scratching floor and covered with Hay or Straw. These houses were several rods apart and from 100 to 150 fowls were kept in each. The houses contained no divisions and the fowls were not carded but had the whole Range of the farm. Instead of fencing in the hens he had fenced in his Garden and other places he wished to protect from them. Near the buildings were some Springs of rimming water. This water had been carried to some of the houses in pipes so that fresh water was easily provided for the fowls. Centrally located among the houses was a granary which Yas quite Large and contained a stove with a Large Kettle for cooking the meat which was fed to the hens in the Winter. In the building his liens pay Liim a profit of nearly $1 each for there is but Little outlay for food. Probably $700 to i boo is received for eggs. A buyer conies after them twice a week and Asho can get so Many clean and fresh eggs at one place he pays 1 to 2 cents above his Price for common eggs. If to the amount received for eggs we add the produce of the Orchard and Garden House rent Etc., the income is about 11,000 per year with an investment of Only perhaps .$3,000. There Are Many Small farms of 25 to 50 acres with a House and other buildings that in these times can be Pur Aliased v my Cli Caply and an outlay of a few Hundred dollars More would erect suitable buildings and Stock them with poultry. Ten or 15 acres of Oats buckwheat Corn and perhaps other grains with Cut Clover milk Etc., would Fiur Nish food for Over 600 Fowla two or three cows could be kept and fruit and vegetables grown for family use. For a Man and family of children who can As Sist in caring for the poultry and who has some capital there be Sims to be a better Prospect to make a living than in Dairying or other kinds of farming at the present time. Nearly every business is full and pushed to the utmost and because of the intense Competition and Large production the margins Are growing smaller. If we engage in a business that requires skill and the cd be attention to details that Many persons Are not willing to give it we can to a certain extent get out of the Genu ral Competition and make fair profits. Newsy notes. It is said that Crozier who invented the disappearing gun Carriage got an idea from a Kansas Prairie dog jumping into its Hole. With genuine regret we learn that general Weyler having contracted a severe Case of cold feet will not be Able to leave Spain at present. A Kansas Young Man who went to claim his Bride on their wedding Day last week found her in bed with measles but he married her just the same. Miss Girtie Adams has organized a female cavalry troop of a Hundred women in Nebraska. That name is enough to strike terror into Spanish hearts everywhere. The Madrid Riew paper correspond Encia says that it Quot has entire Confidence that Justice will Triumph in the War with the United we have the same feeling Over Here. Hows this the sporting world. Portsmouth Good old Portsmouth n. A has been a dead town Ever since the decline of the great fisheries that used to keep her it a harms Lively looking. The historic frigate Constitution lying in he Harbor seemed scarcely More a thing of the past than the paint and interesting City itself. New life has come to the place from this War. Her Navy Yard buzzes with activity her ancient guns Are being refitted and was also a Power Bone Mill for grind ing the Bones. But few chickens Are raised on the farm. Every fall the owner starts out with a Large Wagon filled with crates to buy chickens. He buys both the pullets and cockerel at the Market Price by on their Way North and South along the new England coast. The fact that at this moment with a Fleet actively engaged in War on the weight keeps the pullets for his laying East Side of Asia the United states has Stock and ships the cockerel to the absolutely no spot where that Fleet can City. He keeps his hens two years and obtain Coal and supplies nearer than then crates them alive and ships them a a Francisco 5,000 Miles away and to the City Market in August and Bep-1 Jujj tember so he must replace one half of., his Stock every year. He obtains nearly i As much for the fowls he Sells As they i Moio a de a at the Philippines is re Cost so saves the trouble and expense of i spec fully commended to the attention raising chickens. Of course by this plan i of the american Neola he cannot keep Lior oughtred Stock but he says that lie is in the business for the Money there is in it and there a a More Money for him in buying chickens than in raising them. The reason Why this Man is Able to make a Good profit from his hens is that the greater part of their food is produced on the farm. As fast As his land was cleared it was sown with Grain which i saved his Money in buying Grain for his hens and now after years of hard toil he has removed the stumps the Public Baths of Philadelphia go to sustain the charge of a certain disgruntled englishman that men Are cleaner Thau women because men Bathe oftener As proved by the use of Public Baths. Philadelphia has provided one third fewer Baths for women than for men in the establishments where for a very Small fee anybody May Wash and be clean. Chester m. Murphy says the new York journal aged 4 years is the strongest and most athletic baby in greater new York. Chester lives at 200 Lenox Road Brooklyn. The youngster came honestly by his Muscles As he is the son of Charles m. Murphy the Dean of american Cycle racing the Man who has 120 Gold medals for Speed and endurance the Man who has Ridden 100,-000 Miles on a bicycle. Quot the boy weighed 11 pounds at birth and began to grow with wonderful rapidity Quot said Murphy Pere As be turned the youngster a flip Lap Over the Back of his hand Quot and As i was then in the midst of my racing season i decided to bring him up in the gymnasium. Just As soon As he was weaned i began to play gently with Bis Bones and his Muscles bending him in All sorts of attitudes but never to the extent that he showed the slightest s we offer one Hundred dollars Reward for any Case of Catarrh that cannot be cured by Hall s Catarrh cure.

Amp l. By. A four tear old cyclist discomfort. When he was Able to stand on his feet i had him As Limber As a contortionist and by the time he was a year and a half old he could do a Graceful exercise with a pair of clothespins which were substituted for dumbbells. Quot i found that his Muscles began to show decided growth acid his general temperament improved with his athletic training. By the time he had begun to comprehend the regularity of his work i observed a sturdiness about his Carriage that pleased me mightily. He never cried nor was he peevish like most children. When he went to sleep it was perfect rest for him and not nervous tossing common to most children at that age. At 3 i had him schooled to that he could lift his entire upper body through the Force of the stomach Muscles while he reclined on his Back and i held his feet. He could also do the dip and Chin and other athletic feats of the Sargent system in Vogue at Harvard. It was then that i put him on his bicycle. It was made to order for the boy and weighs 11 pounds. In three lessons he was Able to mount without assistance and i will match him against any boy of his years in the world for anything up to one mile. He has made a Quarter in 48 seconds which is regarded by wheelman As the Wisdom of general Lee s Sug Gestwa of Linen uniforms for our soldiers operating in Cuba will be recognized by All who Are familiar with the cuban climate. It a understood that the plans of the War department contemplate such a provision. Jules Verne is enjoying robust health at the age of 70 in his quiet Home at Amiens where he lives on herbs and eggs a diet to which he attributes his vitality. He has written a Book for every year of his life with six volumes to spare and 18 still at work. Never was such a Rush for four hats before. All the towns and country around Are falling in love with our styles. And the Little Price Marks help the liking. Think of a hat for $3.50-tasty, becoming a Little Gem. Up As High As you care to go. Only Art contrives to make All things Beautiful. We Don t pretend to remodel a face yet we can beautify it. The artful Ness of our millinery the Quick eyes and dexterous hands of our experts assist nature s Handiwork. Perhaps few people even Quot fans Quot know that fielders have a code of signals like that used by ships that pass in the night. If it were not for this innumerable accidents would occur. Two men running at full Speed in opposite directions with their eyes riveted on the Ball Are Apt to injure each other most seriously. Indeed there Are instances of fatal injuries resulting from fielders running into each other. Tom Burns nearly lost his life this Way several years ago. When two men run for the same Ball whether in the in or out Field the one who is the nearer to it or has the better Chance of catching it yells out Quot i be got the other answers Quot All right go in Quot or some other equivalent phrase. He must not stand mate for this would disconcert the first Man by causing him to think Tufit Poa ably the second Man had not heard his Call. The second Ehold rather Call out be Vetoll times to answer the first that he was heard and that there has been no change of mind on his part a regard to the one who is to do the catching.
