Description A Basket of Chips If you care to see a scrimmage, throw to some young chicks. What a rush and grab will get hold of a single worm and tussle u rates. The habit of the chicken is always to a few earth worms I there will be! Two .ntil the worm sepa- look at what h .e has before swallowing it, and at that moment when he is laying down the morsel, another chick will seize it and make its run for the goal. In the meantime every chick has had a turn or two and worked very hard, and was well exercised for the little bit of meat it got. Chicken illness can generally be attributed to either the food given by man, or badly ventilated houses. I obtained a very fine looking cockrel at the market for breeding purposes. I found after a few days that he was coming down with the roupe [roup}?O Thinking I would get the latest and best remedy from the person in charge of the poultry display at the State Fair, I went to him and he gave it in very few words, - "The hatchet." And in looking up printed information, the same advice was given, with a treatment, if one cared to use one, which meant a lot of trouble. I concluded to try nature's rem- edy, - "fasting." I prepared a coop that was isolated from the others and gave him nothing but water. I noticed in a few days the swelling stopped and in a week was disappearing. In the meantime six young pullets came down with it, caught from him. I took him out of the hospital and put the pullets in on the same treatment, - only water. I gave the cockrel the run of the front yard where he could get water and whatever he could find to eat, which would be only animal and plant life. He soon entirely recovered, and the pullets also, though some went en- tirely blind for a short time. If I had followed the expert's advice, I would have been the loser of seven choice chickens. The fasting remedy will cure a large proportion of all human ailments; from two to six day's abstinence from starch and sweets, - absolute diet on vegetables and fruits can be eaten after a day or two's fast.
