28 THE EASTERN POUTRYMAN. important phase of our workâthat of utility. Care should be taken that in our eflforts to obtain fancy points we do not lose any of the good practical qualities of the bird. In the matter of size, I incline to breed- ing the Wyandotte well up to the standard weight or over, and I believe it is desire- able to do so from a practical standpoint. The larger bird produces a larger egg: the chick comes to the market size much quicker and in my experience, the large female will projuct just as many eggs as the smaller one. The standard weight for the W’yandotte-might well be increased one pound to my opinion. Much has been said on the question of which shade of buff shall we hold to. The answer which some breeders have given to this question is, "Hold to the shade which is the most difficult to pro- duce;" (rather a selfish answer). The an- swer I give to this question is, hold to the shade which strikes the popular fancy, and which is in other respects the most practical. IIy experience has been that the popular fancy runs to the orange or pumpkin buff or a darker shade rather than to the lemon buff. I have yet to have the first visitor to my yards tell me that he fancied the lemon huft shade. The farmer and other breeders not familiar with the controversy over which shade is the right shade, will select without hesitancy the darker shade as his choice and pronounce it more desirable and more beautiful. This is a potent reason why we should accept the orange shade as the standard buff. If the breed is to be a popular breed it must be acceptable to the eye of the mass of poulterers. The lemon shade of buff is not attrac- tive to the lay poultryman, and especially after it has been once shed. It is urged that the orange buff is not buff at all, etc., but it is sufficient to say that it is buff enough to have been ac- cepted for years by breeders of Buff Cochins as the desirable shade. It is the shade we have admired so long in poultry; and it is the shade which made bufif the popular color in fowls. Let us hold to it and breed for it. In conclusion, I desire to repeat, the BufT Wyandotte is in my opinion the most attractive fowl in color and shape extant. The breed now has a good repu- tation for usefulness and upon this repu- tation it is established at the present time. Its future depends on our efforts as breed- ers to improve our stock along practical lines, retaining the many good qualities which we now have, and eliminating by the use of the trap nest and other helpful meth- ods any faults that may be found in our par- ticular strains; to the end that a good reputation may be made better, a useful fowl may be made more useful and our favorite continues to ri.se in the esteem of the mass of poultry raisers until it stands at the head of practical fowls in poultry- dom.âArthur Sykes in Aiiierican Biijf Wyandotte c/ul) catalogue. Bantams. Bantams or banties, as they are gener- ally called, are a miniature bird fully representing the standard breeds only in a minature form, being always popular with the women and children and to day with a great many thorough fanciers. They have gradually gained popularity until now they almost rival in sale those of the standard breeds, and a great many of the leading fanciers of to-day attribute their love for poultry by raising of ban- tams when young, as there is no branch of the industry more attractive as the raising of bantams. We are often asked, "Are the ban- tams profitable, easy raised, are they hardy, and which is the best sort to begin with?" In answer we would say they are not only hardy and profitable, but their size enables one to raise and properly care for them oftentimes where it would be utterly impossible to raise the larger breeds, and will do well where they can run and roost where they are out of reach of dampness and draft. An old sugar, coffee or tea box can readily be fixed for their abode and will comfortably accom- modate from six to twelve. Regarding the variety, there is almost an endless list, being almost as many vareities as there are of the larger breeds and some that there are no large breeds like them; and although we have bred fifteen different varieties we are unable to say there is any real best among them. It being owing to the taste of the breeder, without much fear of his making any mistake. The Games, Cochins and Seabrights seem to be the most popular. The first two named are in all respects, except size, the exact counterpart of the larger varieties, and for the smallest in size and high-scoring specimens there are very high prices paid for them, it being a common occurence that as much as I50 to $200 being paid for prize winners, especially in the Game va- rieties. We also have the black and white Rose Comb bantams, which are very attractive. The Japanese are very queer little beauties, having solid white plumage except the large flowing tail, which is solid black. Being very short- legged they excite great admiration. The Japs, however, are of all shades that can be, but the most popular are the Black-tail and the White Japs. The Cochin or Pekin Bantam has almost un- limited popularity. They were first im- ported to this country in 1S60 from the Royal Summer Palace, which were of buff color. The best time we find to hatch bantams is in May, June and July. However, the best and smallest speci- mens we ever raised were hatched in .September, but you have to have a warm place in which to winter them. Bantams will lay more eggs by weight in propor- tion to their size and cost of food than the large breeds. Owing to the fact that I am a homeopathic physician, I will stop here and give you more small doses of the small breeds later. Yours for better bantams and more of them. I only breed twelve varieties, but they are winners.â Poultry Topics. Personal Mention. The use of neatly-printed letter-heads, envelopes, business cards and circulars is recommended for poultrymen. Besides the advertising value of these things, they are convenient and save time in corre- spondence. We have received a fine line of samples of fancier’s printing from the Elmwood Press, Elmwood, Mass., who have a change of advertisement in this issue. Their work is first-class m every respect, and their prices are very low for the quality of stock used. They have a full line of the latest cuts of all varieties of poultry, and make no extra charge for using them on any orders for printed matter. A number "of our advertisers have had their printing done by the above firm and are well pleased with the quality and price. Samples will be sent free to any of our readers who request them and mention this paper. Mr. B. S. Gale, Amesbury, Mass., the well-known breeder of Barred Plymouth Rocks, has had excellent success this year in producing prize stock. At the Newburyport fair, in a class of 71 Barred Rocks, he took every first prize, and at the Amesbury and Salisbury fair, in a class of 51 Barred Rocks, he took all the first prizes. In a recent letter he says : " The following are the winnings for my Barred Plymouth Rocks in two fairs just closed: 10 firsts, 4 seconds and 7 thirds. This is a good showing I think." We think so, too, and knowing Mr. Gale and the quality of his stock as we do, we can recommend that our readers correspond with him when in want of good birds at reasonable prices. Mr. Luther Robbins, Hollis Depot, N. H., is introducing a liquid Lice Exter- minator that is a good one, and deserves to become popular. We have given it a thorough trial and unhesitatingly recom- mend it. Mr. Robbins is offering it at a low price to introduce it, and our readers should look up his advertisement which appears elsewhere in this issue. In mak- ing your houses ready for winter, a quart of this exterminator applied around the roosts, nests and corners of the building may save you many dollars in the comfort and health of your fowls. It is " sure death " to all insects. TRY IT BEFORE YOU BUYIT Test it before you deride; prove it before yo pay your money. That will save future disap pointmcnt and loss. That’s the way we sell MANN’S LATEST MODEL BONE CVTTEH the machine with more new, labor-saving im- provements than all other bone cutters com- bined.

Book promotion and book marketing used to consist of the lonely book tour. As the author, you were required to visit a ton of cities in a relatively short time, exausting you to the frustrating end, often with few book sales to show for your troubles.

Author book promotion can be tiring, frustrating, and often financially draining. That’s why the most successful authors will often hire a good book publicist, or literary publicist.

Increasing Book Sales through Book Marketing

Book sales is the name of the game, and if you’re promoting a book the old way, or if you’ve enlisted the help of a book marketing service who is doing it the old way, it’s time for a major change.

On our web site for writers, http://www.writeandpublishyourbook.com, we’re committed to providing site visitors with the best and most current information. You won’t see us putting a lot of energy into book promotion through lengthy book tours. But, you will see articles and information about “Virtual” book tours, or online book promotion.

The Tried and True Media Blitz

But don’t worry. We haven’t given up on some of the old tried and true approaches to book sales. One major reason we asked Marika Flatt of PR by the Book (http://www.prbythebook.com) to help us with our writing contest is that she’s adept at both the new and the old forms of book sales.

For example, Marika will work with you on establishing a presence in the media. Why is this important? The media is still your key ticket to successful book sales.  By media, we mean radio and TV. Two minutes on Oprah will put you in author heaven. But, you aren’t restricted to Oprah.

Good Book Marketing is a Process

Good media coverage is a process, as is all book promotion and book marketing. You can’t wake up one day with a best seller on your hands. First, you have to establish a relationship with the media, and that can take some time. Marika, or another book promotion specialist, might send a series of queries, press releases, and “tips” to radio, TV, and newspaper reporters who are hungry for anything that might be interesting to their public.

It can take time to establish yourself as an expert, but it’s well worth the trouble. Once you’re there, your book promotion almost runs itself.

Looking New Book Promotion in the Face

If you’ve got a book that you’d like to promote, then don’t leave it to chance or an old school literary publicist. Look for someone who knows something about blogs, podcasts, and internet marketing.

But, don’t just go the Internet route! Be sure you also do the “hard” work of getting in front of the public through radio, TV, or even book tours. While the virtual book tour can be a huge benefitFree Articles, the old ways still do work.
