Poultry Are Nntiiral Keedcra. if farmers and others I who keep poultry would only realize that c-liick- ? mis. geese and turkeys arc natural feeders, their flocks would render a i better account of themselves. roni ' mon crr?>r.s in many instances V.avc j J been the overstocking of yards and ! ' wrong methods of feeding. Thus. corn, which is a carbohydrate j or heat-yielding food, should be ?1- ; most entirely discarded in summer. At least, the amount fed can be great ly diminished without rear of starv : iiig the birds. 1 If poultry have free range, the mat ter of feed need give the farmer little concern. The fowls usually wl'il take euro of themselves in sumnver. Hut If they arc more or less confined, then plenty ?f green feed especially clover or a 1 fa.'fa. will prove a cheap and : efficient food. Valuable Protein Feed*. Ft has been a revelation even to fs perlenced poultrymcn liow productive i ,t hen can he upon food which, in the 1 past. has been thought of little value. I Of lute many valuable lessons have | been taught by experlemnt stations, j Formerly far more concentrated feeds . were used. Now, in summer, vege- j tables take their place in the rations, j Also a. number of valuable by-prod ucts have been discovered, which are i eagerly used as poultry feeds. Animal food, chiefly in the form of fi?h meal or meat scraps, is much more g-encr .illy used. But a small quantity of these feeds go a long way. Conse quently, grain feeding can be reduced or even eliminated in hot weather. For confined fowls, some form of | animal protein seems necessary for! economical egg production. Experi ments carried on for three years at the Indiana Experiment Station show ed that the feeding value of skim milk was superior to meat scraps, con sidering costs. Production averages we>te 14 0 eggs for skim milk and 13?> eggs for mea.t scraps. It was also shown that either of these two forms of animal nrote.n feeds increased the efficiency of the grain ration. Plenty of gveen food and a proper amount of profitable ration for laying hens in summer. I'rodnrtj, and Hy-Products. Keeping hens for the second and third seasons by the backyard poultry man has little to commend it. Hirds are kept in backyards under intensive ' conditions. In summer, the fowls are likely to lose vigor unless care- ' fully handled. It has been found bet- i ter to keep hens and pullets in sepa- 1 rate pens If possible. Older fowls are often spiteful to growing pullets, and anything which upsets peaceful con ditions retards growth and production. With the. breeding season over, get rid of the roosters. The. breeding miles can be sold for meat a good price and thus the feed bill is reduced. Moreover, from this time on the. pro duction of infertile eggs is most de sirable. The keeping quality of the eggs is improved thereby whether they are intended for home consumption or for market. Many persons buy eggs at this season to preserve In water glass for winter use. Infertile eggs should be used for this purpose. If a large number of cockerels are on hand, now is the time to put flesh on them for tabi? use. Confine them in close quarters for two or three weeks give them plenty of soft, ani mal and green feeds; they will more than repay in extra flesh for the extra cost of the feed. As a matter of fact, if the chicks were hatched early, sum mer fattening of cockerels is both practical and profitable. Cockerels three or four months o'.d put on flesh quicker than at any other time of their life. Surplus cockerels of the heavy breeds may lie profitably caponisied. lit rearing broilers it is not always pos sible to fit them all for market at the same time. The poorer birds may be. retained and prepared for the 'capon market. Hut it does not pay to at tempt to produce large capons from small breeds of fowls. Choice capons, however, bring good prices, and when the profits they bring are compared with the returns from ^ordinary broil es. this type of finished product can be made to pay well for the extra labor and trouble involved. rSnlvufclnR .Manure und JFenthern There was n time when only goose feathers were considered worth sav ins'. These were used for pillows and household cushions. Today, however, some of our best featlieis are the body feathers of the heavier breeds of chickens. When fowls are killed, the feathers ;>r? curefnily plucked and laid aside if the fowls Is dry picked. When a fowl Is scalded, the wet feathers should be spread out on clean paper to dry. With many breeds such feathers scarcely can be di.st ingulshed front the best Boose feathers, bring as high a market price, ami .<erv^ as many uscfu; pur nosos.

Coal Production Dangerously Below The Safety Line Buy Your Coal NOW The chart below shows the perilous situation which confronts coal con sumers today. It is an exact copy of the report issued June 24 by the United States Geological Survey. That broad, black line you see, marks, in addition, the average daily coal production essential to meet the country's requirements for the present year. It is the safety line. When the record is below that line, it shows there is not enough coal for the people and their industries. Production has been on the wrong side of the safety line since January. It promises to stay there unless YOU BUY YOUR COAL NOW.

"'eb. Mar. Apr. Mky June July Aug. Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec. Coal consumers have failed to buy for use during- the coming Fall and Winter. Thus it has proved impossible to keep coal moving from the mines, and production in conse quence has badly slumped. Available mine labor has been reduced by the departure of miners to Europe. More than forty thousand already have arranged to leave. Motive power and cars are waiting for coal transportation now. Soon the nation's great crops of grains and. other products will con gest the rails and glut the terminals. It fol lows that coal transportation facilities will be sharply reduced and coal deliveries will suffer. In making public the above chart, the United States Geological Survey warns you as follows "The best time in the year for laying in stocks of coal for next Winter is rapidly passing, with no evidence of general buying for this purpose. The rate of production has not varied greatly since the middle of May, and averaging about 30 per cent below last year, is apparently just sufficient to meet current consumption." How can production be increased? How can the requirements of the country be met? BY BUYING YOUR COAL NOW. There is no other way. No other action can avert the impending shortage. Relief rests with you. Conditions urge you to act. BUY YOUR COAL NOW! National Coal Association Commercial Bank Building, Washington, 1). C.
