KEEPS FAMILY IN EGGS
A small flock of hens can be kept
with profit by many town and city
dwellers who have a backyard, say
the poultry specialists of the Exten
sion Division, Louisiana State Univer
sity. Even as few as eight or ten
hens should produce eggs enough,
when used economically, for a family
of four or five persons throughout
the year, except the moulting period
of the fall and early winter.
Householders usually desire not
only eggs for the table and for cook
ing, but also an occasional chicken
to eat. For this reason one of the
general-purpose breeds, such as Plym
outh Rock, Wyandotte, Rhode Island
Red, or Orpington, is preferable to
the smaller egg breeds, such as the
Leghorns. Not only do the mature
fowls of these breeds, because of
their larger size, make better table
fowls than the Leghorns, but the
young chickens for the same reason
make better fryers and roasters,
whereas chickens of the egg breeds
are suitable only for the smaller
The general-purpose breeds are also
"broody" breeds, the hens making
good sitters and mothers, which is a
decided advantage when it is decided
to hatch and raise chickens, since the
hens of the egg breeds seldom go
broody and are in any event rather
unreliable sitters and mothers. If,
however, the production of eggs out
weighs the desire for an occasional
table fowl, the lighter egg breeds un
doubtedly will be found better, be
cauise they produce eggs more cheaply.
It is by all means advisable to keep
some pure breed or variety. Where
this is done, sales at a profitable fig
ure can often be made of breeding
stock intended for market, or of eggs
GET A GOOD SIRE.
Quality and prodpctive capacity of
t the average Lcuisiana farm animal is
still low. Thousands of farmers are
wasting time and money on animals
that give less returns for the same
expenditures than would better stock.
The price of land, the price of labor,
and the price of everything else is
Shigh. It animals are to hold their
e own in our system of agriculture they
must not only be high-priced them
selves but they must also be of high
The value of livestock, depends on
good care, housing, feeding and dis
Sease control, as well as on breeding.
Good breeding, however, determines
the fundamental capacity of an ani
mal to be profitab'e to its owner. Ao
Scordingly, the replacement of scrub
L sires by good purebreds is considered
a basis for other improvement. While
the use of good females is likewise
0important, good sires bring results
Smore quickly and at less expense.
Get a good sire.
Care Of Tires Profitable.
Experts estimate that 50 per
cent of all automobile tires man
ufactured are discarded before
they have delivered maximum mi
Sleage because of the neglect and
ignorance of motorists. Under
inflation, wheels out of alignment
and other abuses cause damage
that could easily be fixed if cared
for at the time incurred. Maxi
mum mileage is built int' tires
and will be delivered if motorisete
learn conservation from booklets
Sbeing issued by most manufac
Stirers. To show what mileage
can be delivered under proper
tire oqare, J. M. Benish of Orchard
WY ilhelm Company, Omaha, Nab.,
Swrites that the company bought a
lpneumatically equipped two-ton
truck two years ago and that the
Goodyear cords ran 10,000 miles
0 on the original tread and 6,700
I miles more after being retreaded.
- They are still in service over bad
roads and are cushioning the
trucks so eflloiently that repair
Sbills are practically negligible.

Just as Goodyear is successful in building
extreme value into the Goodyear Tires that
go on the highest-priced motor cars, so is
Goodyear successful in supplying unusual
worth in Goodyear Tires for smaller cars.
Into the making of Goodyear Tires in the
30x3-, 30x31/-, and 31x4-inch sizes have gone
the full advantages of Goodyear experience,
skill anrd modern facilities.
The resu ts of this unusual endeavor are
easily available to every owner of a Ford,
Chevrolet, Dort, Maxwell, or any other car
requiring the sizes mentioned.

I do the very beet I can and with
your co-operation and encourage

service to you.
I never slack, but am forever

may need me, and whether I shall

work in harmony to achieve the
best results. I strive at all times
to give you the vefry best I can

efforts in your behalf, when you
say unkind things of my service
and do not make just allowances
for my failings, when you do not

to me and certainly does you no

Don't Take Chances if You Feel
Bad. Enrich Your Blood
There is a great deal of seri
ous sickness in the Spring.
And it is easy to see why.
long weeks pent up indoors, too
little exercise and fresh air,
winter sicknesses not entirely

vitality. Blood weak and slug
gish. Then come tine Spring
days-that are not as warm as
they seem; or sudden ctanges
in the weather, and you haven't
taken proper precautions.
Vigorous, red-blooded people
don't often get sick. If you're
not feeling your best, get Pepto
Mangan of your druggist and
take it to build up your blood.
This effective and agreeable tonic
has been tested for over thirty
years, and physicians, every
where recommend it for run
down, pale and anemic people.
The whole family should take
Pepto*Mangan-it is good health
insurance. Besides, what a joy
it is to feel fit and fine--ready
for anything! To have an abun
dance of energy and enthusiasm!
Pepto-Mangan is for sale at
your druggist's and in both liquid
and tablet form. There is no
difference in medical value. Take
whichever you prefer. But to
make sufe you get the genuine,
