-A supply of cggs for winter use is desirable. But they cannot be had without the poultry are attended to. First, they must have light, warmth, and shelter ; second, they must havo the right kind of food. The l'oulLnj World remarka : "There are no animáis more omnivoroua than fowls ; fish, fiesh, herbs, and grains being devoured by them with equal relish. We say equal, for though they commonly pounce upon meat with greater avidity than upon grain, this is generally because it affords a rarity, and a flock kept for awhile alraost entirely on animal food will show the same greed for a few handt'uls of corn. The fondness for variety shown by fowls is as significant of real needs as we have fouud it to be in ourselves. In purveying for them, a judicious variety, selected f rom the three general divisions - fresh vegetables, grain and animal food - is at all seasons absolutely neceasary for young and old, in order to make them peifectly thrifty. True, they will not starve on hard corn and water, neither will they pay a protit so kept." Poultry generally are in good condition in the fall and would commence to lay early, were they only supplied with the proper food. The differonce that exists between the winter and summer price of eggs ought to pay a good profit on the food necessary to keep them. All food given them should be (warm not frozen, nor allowod to freeze before being caten. The water they drink should be fresh and not nielted now or ice. Care will pay, with eggs ;t "20 to1 25cents por dozen.
