The prohibition against the sale of

apply to broilers weighing two pounds
or less each. The prohibition against
the sale of this stock was put in force
in an effort to increase the potential
pec nroduction of the country. It
remains effective until April 30. This
was done in order to prevent rapid
disintegration of the poultry industry
by the selling of laying hens. In some
parts of the country a large propor
tion of them have already been sold
because of the high price of live poul
try. These hens should be kept on the
farm. They should lay about .30 eggs
each before May 1. These eggs may
be sold or set for hatching. On and

Horse's Jumping Power.
If the reader will carefully measure
nut 39 feet an Idea of a horse's capac capacity
ity capacity in this direction will be gathered.
Ruch a distance a steeplechase horse
called Old Chandler Is reported to have
covered at Warwick many years ago;
and there Is more than one apparently
authentic record of a horse clearing
over seven feet In height. The scene
of such an exploit was at the Phoenix
park, Dublin, and the horse was called
Turnip. The animal belonged to Sir
E. Crofton, and the duke of Richmond,
then lord lieutenant of Ireland, wa wagered
gered wagered 500 that this height could not
be cleared. A wall of the requisite di dimensions
mensions dimensions was built, and when finish eel
Turnip was ridden at It He did what
was asked of him in perfect style, bull
It happened that his grace, not know knowing
ing knowing that the feat was ready for per performance,
formance, performance, was not looking when the
Jump was made, and Turnip was there therefore
fore therefore ridden again, not only suc successfully,
cessfully, successfully, but easily. London Tit-Bits.
