to the income of the people of the "Million Egg Farm," be
the United States, yet it is a fact
that this huge figure is attained
by the revenue from eggs and
poultry sold in this country in a
single year. It means more than
enough to give every man,
woman and child more than 13
dozen eggs each a year.
It is a profitable business, not
only for the farmers, but also for
city folks with a little spare land
in which to carry it on. Many a

get out of doors more, so got a
small farm near town. He learn

business and now in a year he
clears close to $20,000 from his
farm. Not many people want to
go into it so extensively, but

city people can do.

WILSON WILL RUN AGAIN
The President has written a
letter to a friend in which he ex
pressed views which make it
practically certain he will be a
candidate for re-election says a
Washington special. While this
has been generally felt there has
heretofore been nothing definite
upon wlfich to base the belief. In
his letter the President declares
it to be the duty of the chief ex
ecutive once to submit his ad
ministration to the people, along
with his personality, for their ap
proval or rejection. It is under
stood the President refers to the
duty in a way which leaves the
impression that he thinks a chief
executive would be in a more en
viable position, for, after four
years, he could probably go into
private life without submitting
his case to the people.
