Mr. Atkins is one of the best known ;
poultry judges in the country and J
the advice he gave was worth dol- j
iars and cents to many of his hearers. I
Incidentally he advised that Rhodq I
Island Reds, "White Wyandotes and":
Orpingtons be used not only for gener
al purposes, but for show birds as well
and expressed the belief that they
would pay the best returns of any
of the various breeds of chickens.
L. B. Strayer of South Rock Island,
who Is an extensive poultry raiser,
was also at the meeting last night
and he too gave some practical advice
on the care and breeding of chickens.
TO TALK COSfSOMDATIO'X.
A meeting of committees from each
of the tri-dty poultry associations is
to be held In Rock Island tonight to
discuss the proposed consolidation of
the societies. Davennort named a
committee of three about two weeks !
ago, Rock Island named a similar com
mittee a week ago and last night Mo
line's poultry association evinced that
it is not antagonistic to the plan, by
the appointment of a committee. '
The local association was organized !
mainly for the purpose of bringing
about a tri-city organization which
shall have for its slogan, "Harmony
and a Big Show." There is every
reason to believe that something will
come of tonight's meeting.
