A potütrymau of Haminonton, N. J., tells in the Grermantown Telesrraph how he f eeds chicks to get big broiíers f or the early ínarkot. He says: I have found the following method of feeding chicks for broilers the best: The first week I give cracked wheat, then af ter that I give a mixture of ground oats and corn, equal parta, abont a foturth part of middlings, and a handful oí ground meat. The whole mixture is scalded several hours before feeding, and then fed only moist. Also chopped up cabbage, boiled or raw potatoes and othei vegetables, feeding eituer separately or in with the mess. Whole wheat or cracked corn is also fed between meáis. The mess ia fed morning, noon and night, and the same continned until ready for market, the supply of meat, however, being grad'ially increased the older they become. Coal .ishes, charcoal and ground oyster shells are constantly within reach.
