NEGLECT OF FARM POULTRY
Wost Flocks Are Too Small and Are
j Not Given Attention and Care
We believe that we are justified in
faying that the average farmer does
?not give enough attention to the
?poultry side of farming. Experiments
|that have been conducted show that
?the farmer's flock may be made a
?profitable part of his live-stock busi
ness. Most flocks are too small and
?do not receive the attention, study
land care they should, says Utah Farm
ler. No live stock pays bigger divi
dends when put on a commercial foot
j lng and properly managed. It costs
I little more to care for a large flock
.than for a few hens.
Keep a flock for business reasons
land not merely from force of habit.
?Mongrels or scrubs are not the kind
to have. Get some pure-bred chickens
of the kind you like. We would laugh
at the live-stock man who depended
upon scrubs to build up his live-stock
business. Pure-bred stock will nearly
always arouse the enthusiasm of its
owner and his family.
Other essentials to profitable farm
poultry are houses, equipment for
.hatching and rearing, care, feeding,
(marketing, etc. The humble hen pro
duces millions each year--the ques
tion we ask is, are your getting your
There is money in poultry-If you

MEAT RATION FOR CHICKENS
West Virginia Experiment Station
Makes Interesting Test-Eggs
Are Much Larger.
The effect of meat rations was test
ed at the West Virginia Experiment
Station, where one pen of fowls re
ceived a ration largely of corn and
other starchy grains, while another
pen was fed partly on meat and
The meat-fed fowls laid 7,555 eggs,
while the grain-fed birds laid 3,431,
or less than one-half as many as those
receiving the nitrogenous ration.
The eggs from the meat-fed fowls
were larger, much firmer, rather bet
ter, and produced far more vigorous
chickens than those of the others.
Both lots of fowls remained in a
healthy, vigorous condition.
Excellent Egg Producer.

amount of nitrogenous substances,

When you enter the agricultural de
partment of the county fair, you feel
your soul uplifted and your life takes
on a new power-that ls the inspira
tion of the soil. You are overpowered
by the grandeur and magnificence of
the scene-that is the spirit of the
harvest. You can hear the voice of
nature catting you back to the soil
that is opportunity knocking at your
door. It is a good chance to spend a
quiet hour in contact with the purity
and perfection of nature and to sweet
en your life with its fragrance, elevate
your ideals with its beauty and expand
your imagination with its power.
These products as food are fit for
the gods, and as an article of com
merce they ought to bring tip-top
prices on any market in the world.
The products of the soil are teachers
and preachers as well. Their beauty
gives human life its first entertain
ment, their perfection stirs the genius
in artists; their purity furnishes mod
els for growth of character and their
marvelous achievements excite our
curiosity and we inquire into the won
derful process of nature.
Before leaving the parlor of agricul
ture where nature is parading in her
most graceful attire and science is
climbing the giddy heights of perfec
tion, let us pause and take a retro
spective view. How many of you
know that after these wonderful prod
ucts are raised, they can seldom be
marketed at a profit? Take the blush
ing Elberta, for example-they were
fed to the hogs by the carload last
year. The onion-the nation's favorite
vegetable-every year rots by the
acre in the Southwest for want of a
market and as ? result hundreds of
farmers have lost their homes. Cot
ton-nature's capitalist-often goes
begging on the market at less than
cost of production.
It is great to wander through the
exhibits while the band is playing
"Dixie" and boast of the marvelous
fertility of the soil and pride ourselves
on our ability to master science, but
lt is also well to remember that there
is a market side to agriculture that
does not reflect its hardships in the
exhibits at a county fair.
This nation ls now in the midst of
a controversy as to how best to pro
mote) universal peace. That question
we will leave for diplomats to dis
cuss, but peace within nations is no
less important than peace between
nations and it ls heavily laden with
prosperity for every citizen within
Many leading politicians and ofttimes
political platforms have declared war
upon business and no cabinet crisis
ever resulted. Many men have stood
in high places and hurled "gas bombs"
at industry; thrust bayonets into bus
iness enterprises and bombarded ag
riculture with indifference. Party
leaders have many times broken dip
lomatic relations wjth industry; sent
political aviators spying through the
affairs of business, and political sub
marines have sent torpedoes crushing
into the destiny of commerce. Dur
ing the past quarter of a century we
have fought many a duel with prog
ress, permitted many politicians to
carry on a guerrilla warfare against
civilization and point a pistol at the
heart of honest enterprise.
No man should be permitted to cry
out for universal peace until his rec
ord has been searched for explosives,
for no vessel armed or laden with
munitions of war should be given a
clearance to sail for the port of Uni
versal Peace Let us by all means
have peace, but peace, like charity,
should begin at home.
6RASPIN6 AT THE SHADOW
No man-especially if he is mar
ried-would deny woman any right
she demands. Take the earth and
give us peace, but why does woman
long for the ballot?
When all is said and done, is not
the selection of the butcher more im
portant, to the home than the election
of a mayor; ls not the employment of
the dairyman a far more Important
event in the life of the children than
the appointment of a postmaster; is
not the selection of books for the
family library more important than
voting bonds for jail and court house?
Why does woman lay aside the im
portant things in life? Why leave the
substance and grasp at the shadow?
Be it said to the credit of woman
hood that it Is not, as a rule, the
woman who rocks the cradle that
wants to cast the ballot; lt is not
the mother who teaches her children
to say "Now I lay me down to sleep"
that harangues the populace; it ls not
the daughter who hopes to reign as
queen over a happy home that longs
for the uniform of the suffragette. It
is, as a ru'.e, the woman who despises
her come, neglects her children and
scorns motherhood that leads parades
and smashes windows.

A New Model Typewriter
The Standard Visible Writer
BUY IT NOW
Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is here!
It is just out-and comes years before experts expected it!
For makers have striven a life-time to attain this ideal machine. And Oliver has won
again, as we scored when we gave the world its first visible writing.
There is truly no other typewriter on earth like this new Oliver "9." Think of
touch so light that the tread of a kitten will run the keys !
The new-day advances that come alone on this machine are all controlled
by Oliver. Even our own previous models-famous in their day-never
had the Optional Duplex Shift. It put the whole control of 84 letters and characters in the little fin
gers of the right and left hands. And it lets you write them all with only 28 keys, the least to operate
of any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber "9" with more speed and greater ease.
This brilliant new Oliver comes at the old-time price. It costs no
more than lesser makes-now out-of-date when compared with this
discovery. For while the Oliver's splendid new features are costly-we have eqaulized the added ex
pense to us by simplifying construction. Resolve right now to see this great achievement before you
spend a dollar for any typewriter. If yon are using some other make yon will want to see how mach
'more this one does. If yea are using an Oliver, it naturally follows that yon want the finest model.-,
17 Cents a Day!
Remember this brand-new Oliver "9" is the greatest value ever given in a
typewriter. It has all our previous special inventions-visible writing, auto
matic spacer, 6 1-2-onnce touch-plus the Optional Duplex Shift. Selective Color Attachment and all these other
Yet we have decided to sell it to everyone everywhere on our famous payment plan-17 cents a d?>y! Now
every user can easily afford to have the world's crack visible writer, with the famous PRINTYPE, that writes
