Engagements with Mexicans on the border, battles with the Huns in the trenches in France and then a narrow escape on the torpedoed transport An tilles are the experiences that Edward Weissbach, an American soldier of Cor vallis, had all in the short space of a year. Now he is home on a furlough. He was a member of the first con tingent of American soldiers to land on French soil. "The hoys of l ottery F did not mind being under fire," he says. "They just laughed when a shell burst over their heads and then sent another steel jacked love-note across No .Man's land into the Hun (logouts." First righting in Mexico.

We were fhdged in the vacant houses of the de serted towns just back of the first lines, comfortable quarters, but not ex actly safe, as the Germans peppered the towns frequently. We were well fed and certainly have no kick coming on that score. Four Days Under Fire. "On our first trip into the trenches we stayed four days before we were relieved, and though the sensation was not exactly novel, as we had been un der fire on the Mexican bord* r, there was sutiieJégt—yXCÏ tgoant U* keep its awake day atuT "ghT durTn? our de tail.

H simply can't he explained, but you have a feeling that you must take a stuffed club and go out and liit somebody. Off duty we enjoy our selves in various ways and try to for get about going back until the order eûmes."

Now that von have decided to keep .1 few chickens in your h.-u-kynrd. it is important that \ou select a breed that will answer the purpose ('.tie should be iis-'d in making the selection. If you are raising only a few for eggs it is essential then that ever) hen is a good layer. Your space is limited and you cannot afford to keep hens who are not producing: 200 eggs p< r year or more. Select only hens from thoroughbred stock that have a high egg record. Don't buy common or ordinary scrub chickens, but hens that are bled to lav —tho ro u g h h red s. For eggs only —the nervous egg-type —such as Eeghorns. Minorca» or An conas are good.

Fowls bred both for eggs and meat should be se lected. t if tin 1 heavy dual-purpose birds there are three types, the American, English and French. Houdans, the French type, arc be coming quite popular In Antcrica to day. Of th< egg and meat type, they are the only kind that lay a white egg. and it Is the whitest egg of all. They are an excellent table bird. Orpingtons, either Huff, White or black, arc very popular and are an e.x relient breed for Ho* backyard pen. They confine well, lay at six months, have a tin*' large brown-shell egg, and are an exceptionally g..od table bird, weighing from (1 to S pounds.

All are excellent layers and splendid tabic birds Being gen tle of disposition, they confine well. The Reds and Haired Rocks are per haps the most popular family breed in America today, and justly so, for both breeds are exceptional dnal-luirpo.se birds. Another of the heavy type is the Eangshan. Those beautiful black fowls ore wonderful winter layers. Be ing as large ns a young turkey, they are also excellent table birds. Any of the breeds are good for the back yard. W hatever breed you de cide upon, use rare in getting good stock. Get the best obtainable. Un less she lays 200 eggs per year she will not prove a profitable fowl for the backyard pen.
