fairly and honestly made.
We extend to all poultrymen a hearty invitation to exhibit their \birds
at .our show and a special effort will be made to make it pleasant for all
visitors to the show. Look over the inducements offered and see if they do
not compare favorably with those of any show in the Northwest] We
want every poultry fancier to be with u§ during the show and will make a
special effort to make it pleasant and profitable for'all exhibitors. 1
Entry blanks and all informaton regarding the show can be had of the
Secretary, Sivert Osmundson, Willmar, Minn.

The judge we have employed is one of the best licensed judges in
America, a man of large experience, having judged some of the best shows
in the country. Every one may feel sure that when Mr. Benjamin scores
their birds they will get all that is coming to them—but no more.
TO THE FARMER AND HIS WIFE
We urge you to come and see the large display of fine poultry that
will be on exhibition. I you are contemplating purchasing"- any breed
ing stock you will find both quality and price to suit you here. Don't think
everything will be high priced. Come and see the exhibit and you will un
doubtedly buy if you want good breeders. Talk with the people who are
raising good stock. Ask them the HOW and WHY of things and you will
feel well paid for your time and trouble. Then, too, you will help "boost"
for a greater show next year.

Health Officer's Report for the City
of Willmar, 1912.
During the past year there were
96 births reported, males 59, females,
37 for the year 1911, 89 1910, 92
1909, 102. Total number of deaths
reported for the past year was for
ty-six, 1911, 39. The death rate is
about 7 per thousand, on a basis of
a population of 4500. Still births,
those under one week, and deaths
from accidents eliminated. The
death rate compares very favorably
with other cities of the same size in
the state. Birth rate is 21 per thou
sand, which is about the average in
the United States. Th re were 9
deaths of those over 70 years old,
and three of those over 80, which
shows that either the climate of this,
ciV is conducive to longevity, or that
a good many persons of advanced
years have moved to this city to
make it their home in the last de
cade. There were no deaths from
contagious diseases among children
reported, tho last spring we had
quite an epidemic of scarlet fever,
and this fall and early winter, one of
mild small pox. I do not know of
any cases of either in the city at
present. There were two cases of
typhoid fever and one of diphtheria
reported but no deaths. Six deaths
of those less than one week old, four
still born and four accidental deaths.
Three from cancer and four from tu
berculosis, or one less of the latter
than in 1911. The number of deaths
in the county from tuberculosis in
1910 and 1911, was 38, or 19 each
year, which is about ten per cent of
all deaths. If it is to be stamped
out in this community or in the state
at liarge, we will have to have not
only institutional treatment, as we
have in the State, Sanitarium at
Walker, for curable cases, but also
small local hospitals for the advanc
ed and incurable cases, where they
receive proper care and treatment,
which we know the large majority of
cases cannot receive at home. Fam
ily infection in the home is the great
cause of the spread of tuberculosis,
and it will continue to be the cause
of ten per cent of all the deaths in
the state until hospitals are provid
ed. Very few deaths were reported
during the past few years of intes
tinal diseases among children, be
tween one and five years of age,
which leads me to believe that there
is a good deal in clean milk, as chil
dren at that age are the greatest
consumers of milk, in fact it is one
of their main foods. Due credit ought
to be given to those selling the milk
consumed in the city at present, tho

GOOD REASONS WHY BOYS AND GIRLS SHOULD ATTEND THE
Of the thousands of people who become interested every year in poul
try keeping, veiy few enter it with the correet ideas of how to proceed in
order to derive the greatest profit from their labor.
Perhaps the most misleading impressions gained by the average person
that fowls must be raised by the hundreds or thousands in order to make
the business a paying one. The beginner has a vision in his dreams of
large poultry farms, covered with poultry houses, in which the hund eds or
thousands of OAVIS are shelling out the eggs at the very highest price. Very
well, that is one way of doing it if one has the required capital and intelli
gence to conduct such a large plant. But stop a moment arid consider
poultry raising as a business on such a plan. Very few people would plunge
into a business of which they knew nothing. The most successful merchant
or business man is the one who has studied it in all its details from the
ground up, and we find the same is necessary in the poultry business also,
if you want to make it a paying one. Start in on a small scale with a small
number of standard fowls study their characteristics and habits in every
way as shape, color, size, etc. Attend the nearest poultry shows, watch
the judge when he scores the birds, ask for ^formation on different points
which you are interested in, and which you Vould like to know. There is
no better place to get more practical, useful and helpful information on
what constitutes a good bird, such as can wm in the show room, than in the
show room itself. Here you see the picture actual life of what has been
accomplished by the good breeder or fancier in producing a good bird, as
are given or described in the Standard of Perfection. The show room is
the place where you learn points by observation and demonstration which
cannot be learned anywhere else.
