and move across the lawn toward her.

surance of a man whose life to being
worthily lived. It was a long way
across the lawn, and the girl who
waited for his coming had time for a
crowd of pleasant thoughts as she
watched the approach of the man on
whom she had set her heart. Every
thing that he did and bad done In life
appealed to her. He had aent'nieot

bad been, had become merged In a
purely fraternal and kindly regard. Of

thought nothing. He was possessed,
aa she well knew, of a very high sense
of honor, and she had always felt that,
however greatly she might have de

thought of her own fortune with a
deep sense of pleasure. It was larger
than he imagined, larger than any one
else except herself and her father

make the best of himself, free for all
time from any shadow of financial
worry. How well he looked, how
strong and eager! She held out both
her hands sa be drew near, and her
smile of welcome made her for a mo

"How delightful to see you, Chris
topher!" she exclaimed. "And what
wonderful news! It's Just what yon
wanted. Isn't It, and Just what we alt
wanted for yon."

down at her. Her heart was beginning

thought him a little nervous, and she
smiled tolerantly.
"You were a dear to telegraph to me
at once," she said. "I can't tell you
how Interested and flattered I waa"

clared, looking around once more.
"How Is «very one?"
"la excellent health, thank you." she
answered. Father is hsvtng his usual

"We have discovered," avers John

pullets, as well as cockerels that are
aot to be kept for spring's breeding,

Ration Recommended for
Making of Winter Eggs
The following ration tor wlntar egg
production recommended by the Mis
souri College of Agriculture, satisfies
the needs of tha bras and Is tconom
leal atJ practical. Daring the past
year It baa been fed on a number of
farms with good results: Scratch
grain—ten pounds of shelled com and
five pounds of dry threshed oats. Dry
mash—three pounds of wheat bran,
three pounds of wheat shorts and one
snd one half pounds commercial meat
Where milk to plentiful three gal
lons of skim milk or buttermilk fur
ntohed each 100 hen« daily will take
the place of meat scrap. Either milk
or some form of lean meat must hr
supplied In every ration for eueres»
fui winter egg production. Commer
cial meat scrap can be obtained from
most feed denier* in 100-pound sacks
One ssck will supply protein needed
by 100 hens for more than two months.
Barley or feed wheat may be used In
stead of oats. Commeal or ground
oat» may be substituted for shafts In
tbe mash. Alfalfa meal or clover
leaves may take the place of tbe bran.
A good grade of tankage may be used
Instead of the meat scrap In feeding
this ration all grain should be fed In
deep straw to compel the birds to ex
er rise. The mash should be fed Id
self-feeding hoppers nr troughs and a
supply kept before the bird«. *n ad
dltlon to this ration, bens should have
an abundance of water, a supply of
green food and free access to sharp
grit and crushed oytfer shells or soft
limestone grit. With early batched
pullets, housed comfortably, and fed
this ration, winter eggs are assured.
Plan of Line Breeding
' Line breeding can be done by using
the same ancestry or Mood lines with
careful selection that avoids the bad
effects of Inbreeding. Tbe shade of
difference between tine breeding and
Inbreeding la sometimes very faint.
Breeding the pallets of a mating back
