A STUDY IN CACKLER CHARAC-
"Too bad! Too badl" cries the cook
as she opens a chicken and finds her
full of o.irgs.
Yes, what a sacrifice when fresh eggs
are so "awful, awful high." hut That's
the way it goes when you don't test
your lions with trap nests or study
"egg type" and select accordingly.
The trap nest is a sure thing; but
owners of Bmall Bocks don't care to
bother with them, but every one may
learn cackler characteristics, and,
though this isn't quite so certain, it's
far better than to select hens haphaz

nonlayers to keep.

OH, YOU EGG FAKtKS, BEWAREI
W1 en <;holly went to see lia girl
She'd gone upstairs her '.v-nv to curl.
He waited In the parlor i<
When down the stairs she sung this song:
"Say, ma, bring up a fresh Ini<l egg
To paste my spit curls down real slick.
This old pomade ain't worth a cent
To make my curliculers stick!"
"There ain't no aigs," was ma's reply.
"We used the last for punkin pie.
Jest use some mucilage on your hair.
It's on the desk right near the stair."
But Cholly slipped, quick, out the door
And ran for the first grocery store.
"Fresh eggs?" "You bet!" said Grocar
"The finest eggs in the whole town."
So Cholly bought a dozen eggs
And sprinted back with nimble less.
Her ma quick took them up the stair
Where Sally worked with her false hair.
"Well, you're a dear," came down tho
"For bringing eggs to friz my hair!
Just occupy that easy chair.
I'll quick be done. I'll soon be there."
Well, you can bet she soon got there,
For when she broke that storage fruit
The whole twelve eggs began to shoot,
And she came whizzing down the stair
And knocked poor Cholly off his chair,
While mamma flew aloft somewhere.
The whole shebang seemed in the air.
And. oh. that odor—it was rare!
But did tho^e women fcttrse and frown
And lump on Cholly, bruised and down?
Oh. no! Cut in a change of gown
They sprinted down to Grocer Brown.
They broke old e~gs all over him.
Then rolled him in the flour bin.
They too.; him where his pants hung loose
And dropped him in the pickle juice.
Thus, women, you this plan pursue
Whenever grocers thus do you.
But don't take guns along to shoot.
Just use their old fresh storage fruit.

A. Your hens have "bagging down
behind." You have fed them fat. and
