Ho Hold his hold ings for n song, and had a sale of whnt effects he hnd.

The money ho placed In the bank, nnd started one of his boys out to cam enough money to supply tho table. The older boy used his wages to break up the sod on tho 100 ncrea. But let Mr. Chamberlain tell tho rest of tho story, which he has signed over his own signature. Ho says: "I rented 70 acres and hired It put Into wheat, throRhcd 23 wagon loads for my share. We lived In tho granary two years. "The first of December. 1918, I laid the concrete foundation for n twenty five hundred dollar house and com pleted It tho last of January.

I think It was In the spring of 1003. My old homo was at Lo Mars. Plym outh county. Washington township, Iowa, where I had been farming for a good many yenrs. I had a fnrm of 2-18 acres, of which I owned 80 ncres nnd rented 100. When I left In 1003 I sold my equity In the fnrm for $70.00 per ncrc. Tho nearest station to my place was Dalton, nnd my old neigh bors there will remember me very well. "When I enmo to Cnnada I rented three-quarters of a section at South Plympton, ne.n Springfield, Mnnltoba. After n yenr or two's experience at renting I bought my present farm of 320 acres, and am now engaged In mixed farming. I have alwnys had good crops since I came here, nnd some of them have been bumper crops. "If I went back to tho United States today I could take back $5.00 or $0.00 to, every $1.00 that I brought Into tho the country. My land today Is worth from $7f5.00 to $85.00 an aero, nnd In addition to my grain growing I have mndo n speclnlty of lilgli-gnido Per cheron horses, purebred Shorthorn cattle and purebred Berkshire hogs, I havo had uniform good luck In con nection with my stock, nnd todny I would not sell my farm for a cent less thnn $30,000. "The older settlers of Lo Mars, Iown,, will remember mo very well. I was greatly Impressed with the country when I mndo my first visit hero In 1003, nnd that Impression has been strengthened all tho time I hnvo been here. "Tho cllmato ngrces with us all. no foro 1 enmo hero my doctor's bills .were something awful. I had no sooner got one paid than I was duo for another one.

WHEN HOLLAND IS WETTER EVEN ' ' Scene near tho bridge at Maestrlctit, Liquor Flows Across Border Northern Section of Maine Being Flooded With Whisky From Canada. LAWFUL SEIZURES ARE FEW Comes Across Line In All Forms Into State Which Was Pioneer In "Dry" Laws Many Ways of Fool ing the Sleuths. Bangor, Mo. The rate nt which Ca nadian and Scotch whiskies are Mowing over the northern border Into Maine proves that enforcement of tho federal prohibition law hasn't got Into Ita strldo as yet, for never In nil the his tory of theoretical droughts have oases been greener, moro numerous or closer together In tills pioneer dry stnto than right now, when there Is moro law than ever before, twice as many "enforcers" and Increased pennltles. Trainmen who come down say that whisky of all grades and oceans of puro grnln nlcohol nre flowing over the border nt a hundred places, and thnt ut four principal points the alcoholic In vasion amounts to a flood. These four points- nro Vnn Buren, opposite the New Brunswick town of St. Leonards, on tho St. John river; Fort Kent, which lias easy ncccss to the Canadian vlllngo of Clare via a suspension footbridge; Fort Fairfield, which Is but nine miles distant from the Now Brunswick town of Andover, and Iloulton, which Is a neur neighbor of the provincial town of Woodstock. Only Occasional Seizures. Occasionally the revenue ofllcers seize n wagon or sled load of whisky coming ovor tho International bridge from St. Leonnrds or over the Ice nt porno more obscure locality, but noth ing Is snld nbout tho great number of "booze" chariots that get by the gov ernment's lookouts and which keep the speakeasies of Aroostook or tho bar rooms of Bangor supplied. Also, the St. John river being frozen good and solid for its entire length, men and tenms can cross nnywhero In tho river's 100-mllo stretch along the border, so thnt, as tho rovenue men themselves admit, a standing army with sentinels every fifty feet would be required to shut out tho flood. There Is so much moro money to bo made In bringing In "booze," even a few bottles at a time, that hundreds of woodsmen have quit swnmplng roads and chopping trees for the rum-running business, and nlncty-nlno In 100 of them, knowing tho country thoroughly, get by with their goods. Price of Canadian Whisky. Canadian whiskies that can be bought nt $3 a "short quart" on the Now Brunswick side of the line sell In Aroostook county nt $0 nnd In Bangor nt $8, while genuine Scotch Is $1 In New Brunswick, $8 In Aroostook and $12 to $15 In Bangor. Pure grain nlco hoi, to be had In New Brunswick at $1 n quart, Is "split" with water on this side of the line, so thnt every quart yields about $10.

BREEDING PAYS IN' POULTRY Records of Three Flocks of Leghorns Show Specifically Value of Purebred Males. (Prepared by the United Suites Depart ment of Agriculture.) That the" value of purebred males counts as much In poultry raising as in stock raising Is shown by the rec ords of three'' flocks of Leghorns, the data for which have been supplied the United States department of agricul ture by the Nortli Carolina experiment station. Flock 1. the egg production of which Is Included In these records, consisted of common hens : flock 2 was Purebred White Leghorn Cockerel. produced by breeding these hens to common mnles; flock 3 was produced by breeding flock 1 to a rooster from a high-producing hen. The following year the orlglnnl flock laid 89 eggs a hen ; flock 2 laid an average of 88 eggs a hen; and flock 3 laid an average of 130 eggs a hen. Tills Increase of 54 per cent In one year tells very specifi cally the benefits of using n purebred male. But the percentages alone do not tell the whole story, for a big pro portion of the Increase came at a sea son May and June when the produc tion of flocks 1 nnd 2 was relatively low and the prices were good. POULTRY CULLING PAYS WELL In One Demonstration In Iowa County 609 Hens Out of Flock of 1,548 Were Discarded. In poultry culling demonstrations held on tho farms of the farm bureau members in Emmet county, Iowa, rec ords kept for eleven flocks showed OOO hens were culled out of a total of 1,548 In tho flocks, nccordlng to the United States department of agricul ture. The average number of eggs laid a day by the entire flocks before culling was 401.5, and the average number of eggs laid a day by the 939 hens left nfter culling was 340.0. The average number of eggs for ten hens a day before culling was 2.G; after culling, 3.5. The average number of eggs laid a day by 303 of the culled liens which were not Immediately sold was 14.4. WASHING WILL INJURE EGGS Gelatinous Film of Shell That Keeps Out Air and Germs Is Removed Keep Nests Clean. Eggs should not be wnshed as this removes theclatlnous film of tho shell that keeps out air and germs. The nests should be kept clean so thnt the eggs wIIJ have no chance to become soiled, as removing dirt by washing will allow molds and germs to enter the egg and hasten Its spoiling. Exten sion Division, North Dakota Agricul tural College. As grass makes up the bulk of feed for geese, It Is doubtful whether It pnys to raise them unless good grass range Is available during the summer. The ben that has five range on a farm In summer tlnds these same things and that Is one reason why neg lected fnrm flocks lay well In summer and very poorly at other times. The results found by experiment seem to prove the contention of some Leghorn breeders that their birds are light eaters In comparison with some othor breeds. If a good lot of well-matured pullets or well-moulted early hens are on hand, nnd If they nre healthy and vigorous, all that Is required to obtain n good egg yield Is, the right kind of care and feed. . There Is' no one kind of grain that alone will furnish all of the different food elements required to maintain the body of the hen In good condition nnd also furnish the material of which eggs nre made.
