?n Iowa Farmer Hasn't Time
to Farm as He Did.
Creston, Ia.,-Sidney Lyon, a few
miles out on Route 4, decided to han
dle a different breed of chickens,
some four years ago. In making the
change he decided to buy purebreds
and to get the best stock. He bought
eggs and hatched his flock for the
coming year. He was delighted with
the laying of the fowls. Neighbors
heard about the eggs Mrs. Lyon was
getting. The demand for the Lyon
stock grew. It increased at a ratio
surprising to him.
The next year he decided his poul
try was worth advertising. Advertise
ment brought such a flood of inquiries
and orders Mrs. Lyon couldn't attend
to all the work in connection with
the flock. Lyon was compelled to give
part of his time. He was a farmer,
not a poultryman. That was is 1919.
Farm prices were high, times were
good. But the prices the poultry busi
ness was bringing were such that he
couldn't neglect the chickens. So.,
while his quarter section farming .op
erations were insistent, he obtained
help and prepared to give more time
to the chickens. As he was giving up
part of his time the advertising con
Chickens Kept Him Busy.
That was the end of Lyon's field
work. The next two years and again
this year he has been unable to give
the fields attention. Sidney Lyon,
farmer, has become a chicken farmer
because the chicken business would
not be denied.
Not that Lyon has quit farming.
He's still on the farm. He raises much
of the feeds his chickens eat. He
raises corn, oats and other grain, like
other Iowa farmers, milks a few
cows, feeds from 90 to 100 hogs a
year, topping the St. Joseph market
twice in the last two years. But the
chickens keep him busy. All because
in buying a new farm flock, he
bought the best purebred stock he
knew of, out of a flock with high lay
ing records behind it.
Mrs. Lyon looks after the corres
pondence and that keeps her busy.
Yet only four years ago she believed
she could do the work, care for the
children (there are three) to do the
housework and take care of the
Paying Business a Surprise.
"It surprised us,"- Lyon explained,
and Mrs. Lyon's smile indicated she
mijht have expected the 'surprise'
that had puzzled her husband. It was
she who first desired the single comb
White Leghrons that made up the
This year the incubator capacity
was increased to 1,600 eggs. There
are two large poultry houses beside
the smaller ones in the pens. The big
gest month, financially, was April,
in which the business amounted to
$500. That counts only the business
on which deliveries were made. The
biggest order received was for GOO
No Dull Season on Farm.
There isn't any dull season on this
Iowa farm. When selling eggs for
i hatching slows down there is the
baby chick business. Then there are a
lot of sales of pullets at S weeks.
When th?; hatching season and chick
season are out of the way there is
the New York buyer who takes the
eggs at good prices. And meanwhile
there are the normal operations of
a 160-acre farm.
The grain is sold through the
hogs. Four cows are milked. About
half the farm is in grain, the other
half in pasture.
The result that followed getting
good stock when he bought chickens
wasn't lost on Lyon. He needed a
man for farm work this spring. He
got what he believed the best man ob
tainable paying him SIS above the
average wage for that work. Lyons
plans to get more cows. Besides the
cream, milk is valuable in the chicken
business. He's going to buy "good
stock" again when he increases the
size of his herd. They'll be purebreds
So the chicken business, which be
gan in changing the flock to suit
what seemed to be a wife's whim, has
grown until it reaches into fourteen
states, customers living as far east
as Massachusetts, west to Idaho and
south well into Texas, and the usual
farm operations are kept up.

The Soldiers' Bonus Bill.
The Chronicle has been asked to
explain the provisions of the pending
soldier bonus bill.
We are using a statement made by
the Washington correspondent of the
New York Times. The bill ordered
Wednesday by the senate committee
t- be reported is entitled "The World
War Adjusted Compensation Act."
Under it a veteran of that war is any?
individual who was a member of the
American military or naval forces at
any time after April 5, 1917, and be
fore Nov. 12, 1918, but it does not in
clude any man who was dishonorably
discharged from the service, con
scientious objectors who performed
no military duties and persons dis
charged from the service because
they were aliens.
The compensation is to be comput
ed on a basis of SI a day for home
service and $1.25 for overseas ser
vice when that service exceeded in
duration sixty days. The maximum
payment to men who remained in the
United States is $500 and those who
served overseas $625. Veterans whose
compensation is $50 or less will re
ceive cash in full settlement of all
Those whose compensation exceeds
$50 have the right to avail themselves
of one of the following plans: .
1. Adjusted service certificate upon
which they will be authorized to bor
row from any national bank, bank or
trust company 50 per cent of the face
value of each certificate, such loan to
mature on or before December 31,
1925, the interest on the loan not to
exceed 2 per cent.
2. Vocational training aid.
3. Farm or home aid.
4. Land settlement aid.
The controlling provision of the
bill is the plan of the adjusted service
certificate which, in the event that
its face value is not obtained through
loans, matures in twenty years from
the date it is issued. In the event of
the death of the holder, the govern
ment will pay the sum to his heirs.
If a veteran who borrows money upon
his certificate does not meet his note
within six months after its maturity,
the bank holding the note and certifi
cate will present them to the Secre
tary of the Treasury who will cancel
the note and pay to the bank the
amount cf the unpaid principle and
unpaid accrued interest. This provis
ion applies only to loans maturing
prior to January 15, 1926.
After January, 1926, the Post
master General is authorized and di
rected to instruct Postmasters of the
first, second and third classes to take
applications for government loans
and to collect the payments on them
at maturity. The loans secured by
the certificates will be paid by the
Secretary of the Treasury, who is di
rected to send a check for the amount
involved to the holder of a certificate.
The veteran will make repayment
upon an amortization plan by means
of a fixed number of annual instal
ments sufficient to cover, first, inter
est on the unpaid principal at the rate
of 4^2 per cent, and, second, such
amount of the principal as will ex
tinguish the debt within an agreed
period, not exceeding the life of the
When a veteran fails to make a
payment when due, the Secretary of
the Treasury will cancel the note and
restore the certificate to the veteran
upon receipt of the total amount due
thereon, principal and interest, to
gether with interest at 4% per cent
annually on all payments that were in
If the loan is made three years af
ter and before six years after the
date of the certificate, the amount
obtainable is 85 per cent of the sum
due the veteran, plus the interest
from the date of the certificate to the
date of the loan at the rate of 4 Vs
per cent. On the other hand, if the
loan is made after six years from the
date of the certificate, the loan may
be 70 per cent of the sum of the ad
justed service credit, increased by 25
per cent, a year, plus 4% per cent
interest, compounded annually.
No certificate issued under the
provisions of the bill is to be nego
tiable or assignable as security for a
loan except under the conditions laid
down. Any negotiation, assignment,
or loan made in violation of the law
will be held void. This provision is
intended to prevent the trcrsfer of
the certificates to money lenders and
speculators in government securities.
The other options included in the
b ill, such as vocational training and
land settlement aid, are practically
the same as provided for in the other
bonus measures which have been be
fore Cngress in the last three years.
Dairy Cows Pay Debts.
Two years ago, when John Adair,
a young Hughes county farmer, de
cided to convert his cotton farm into
a dairy farm, he started with five reg
istered cows and two grade cows and
a debt of $3,300. Today, according
to figures obtained by T. A. Vander
poel, farm demonstration agent, he
has thirty-seven head of cattle, eight
een of them milk cows and his debt
has been reduced to $650. In the
meantime, he has been feeding and
clothing a family of nine.
Adair's re?eipts from the sale of
whole milk, cream and butter are
$280 a month, Vanderpool says. Af
ter the monthly payment is made on
his debt, he is putting $50 a month
into a savings fund.
Adair's farming experience began
as a member of Vanderpool's junior
agricultural club.-Oklahoma Farm

Death of Mr. W. R. E. Winn.
On May 30th, 1922 our community
was shocked and grieved to have re
moved from our midst one of our
neighbors, Mr. W. R. E. Winn.
Mr. Winn was born March 19,
1877 in Edgefield county and here in
this county he resided all of his life.
Death is a sad visitor, even when
it comes and carries away those
whose years have been many, and
upon whom time hangs heavily. How
ever, it is so much sadder when a per
son is snatched away so suddenly, and
just in the prime of life. But in His

Alcohol and Narcotics.
Prohibition has not caused an in
crease in the use of narcotics; in fact
in the opinion of" Colonel/Will Gray
Beach, United States narcotic agent
in charge of the Chicago division,
which includes the states of Illinois,
Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin,
narcotics are not being more widely
"I am aware that an effort is be
ing made to show that prohibition
has caused people deprived of alcohol
to turn to narcotic drugs," said Col
onel Beach, according to the Chris
tian Science Monitor of May 8. "Such
an argument is, however, utterly
without foundation. I have been in
this work, from the beginning and if
any such effect had been produced I
would have been the first to know of
it. The records of this office show
nothing of the sort.
"The- use of narcotics is not on
the increase. There is a great deal
of this evil to be fought and we are
fighting it all the time, but we have
not had more to do because of the
prohibition amendment. I could not
say that any effect on the drug sit
uation has been caused by it in any

nature of things that the alcohol ad
dict should turn to drugs. It is con
trary to the experience of this office.
The physical effects desired by the
two types of addicts are entirely op

of work could be misled by any such
Colonel Beach is inclined to think
that the belief that the use of nar
cotics is on the increase is fostered
by the publicity the newspapers give
every kind of rumor of the sort, but
that this kind of newspaper advertis
ing does a great deal of good, as it
keeps the public awake.
"But as for prohibition having
caused an increase in drug addic
tion," he said, "this office doesn't talk
much for publication-we don't give
interviews, but I can state my opin
ion and observation the same as any
body else, and you may say it from

Will Revive Red Cross Work.
?As a result of a conference held
iast week between. Miss Susie G.
Dawson, Field Representative of the
American Red Cross and a number of
the leading lady club workers of
Edgefield it is planned to revive Red
Cross work in Edgefield county.
It is recalled that immediately af
ter the war the Red Cross chapter
here, which did splendid work during
the war was practically disbanded,
all of the officers resigning with the
exception of the secretary Miss Mary
DeVore Butler and Mr. James 0.
Sheppard, who assumed the chair
manship after the war. It is believed
that the Red Cross work is too im
portant to give up, especially in view
of the hard times through which we
are now passing which brings to light
many local needs.
The plan for reviving the work is
to have an executive committee com
posed of one member from each of
the organizations of the town. This
will include all of the women's clubs,
the fraternal lodges, the Chamber of
Commerce, the American Legion,
church societies, etc., The ministers
will be asked to represent their re
spective churches. This Executive
Committee will form a nucleus from
which the chapter officers will be se
Each of the ladies present at the
meeting last week selected a number
of organizations to see with the view
of interesting them in the plan. Each
orzanigation will be asked to appoint
a permanent representative who will
serve on the Executive Committee.
A meeting of this committee will be
held on- Friday night, June 23rd,* at
8:30 P. M., at the Dixie Highway Ho
tel, at which time Miss Dawson will
return to Edgefield to explain Red
Cross matters to the committee.
It is planned also to reorganize the
Junior Red Cross to work in co-oper
ation with the organization of grown
people. The Junior U. D. C's are very
much interested in the Junior organ
With a re-organized Red Cross
it is hoped that duplication of relief
work will be done away with. It is
planned to establish a garment clos
et for the distribution of clothing to
needy people and a loan closet to pro
vide supplies to those who are unable
to purchase such things. Ultimately
it is hoped that a rest room can be
provided for the comfort and conve
nience of ladies who come to town
for shopping purposes.
We have little money now but a
concerted effort on the part of all the
organizations of the town can accom
plish a great deal for the needy of
this community and county, and we
will be able to secure financial assis
tance from the National Red Cross
if we have a good local organization.
Terefore I wish to urge that the rep
resentatives from each organization
of the town to attend the meeting
to be held on Friday night, June 23,
at 8:30 P. M. and let us support this
