There's no question but what they do it. Its just as natural for a bab, to eat dirt as it
is for a pig to root, and I contend that a baby who is never allowed to partake of a lit
tle clean soil will never develope into the hearty stalwart child nature intended.
Why do babies eat dirt, you ask? I don't know. No one knows. Perhaps 'twill
never be known. However, I have a theory that its because they have no teeth. A
young chicken has no teeth, nor does he ever have. Therefore he must remain a grit
eater all the days of his natural life.
Chickens must have grit, and any thoughtless housewife who thinks she can
raise spring pullets without supplying them with some kind of grit cerWjinly has an
other guess comin. To supply this demand we have Just received lfiOO lbs. crushed
oyster shell. The price is a lot cheaper than last vear. Oct a supply now, remember

our front salesmen, Luther McDuffy, Charley Shoemake and Otis Wood are certainly

good bread, the mainstay of the meal? I should say not! Get you a sack of ALBA
