[ < o\X EU I ING XV AS I E INTO I'OOD XT SMALL or I LAY "* < Special If arma'm; st-rvice, 1 Too many poultry stories read like fairy tales in which Aladdin is often representee as rubbing his magical lamp and converting poultry poverty into liock prosperity. Unlike such warping of the truth, this is the story of an actual experience of a back yard pouliryman who was not able to buy an automobile from his ilock prolits hut who did furnish fresh, nu tritious food and an abundance of it for his family table, in addition to enjoying his work. The attractive and serviceable poultry house designed and con structed by this suburbanite cost less than SIOO when it was completed in 1914. It has a concrete floor, roosts, trap nests, a water system and other henhouse accessories. It is a pleasure to look at this henhouse, which would be really ornamental to the backyard of any thrifty American. The building is 12 by 18 feet, and is divided into three pens with an aisle at one end. The house is 7V4 feet high from the floor to the front eaves and 6 feet at the back. Yel low pine drop siding of medium qual ity was used for sheathing and roof ing purposes, the latter being over laid with prepared, stonesurface, as phalt roofing. Adjoining the house, with direct access to it, are four pens, one of which is used for small chick ens, being inclosed with one-inch mesh chicken wire. The windows are an attractive fea ture of this house. They cost com ; plete $1.50 apiece, those at the side being bungalow windows of large and odd 'size which the dealer was glad to get rid of. The front windows can be opened both at the top and bot tom for The side win dows. which help to provide free cir culation of air, are practically weath erproof, as they are hinged at the bottom and swing inward. The ma* terial to rthe floor of this house cost sl2. the owner laying the concrete floor during the evenings by aid of an oil lantern. To begin with this poultryman had only 15 hens, while his capacity rec ord has been 60 mature bene and pullets. A novel feature of his poul try operations was the maintenance of a number of- Belgian hares which he raised for meat. One pen., in the GAMP TEWS MEN IN LOST BANALION HALE OE FAMOUS GROUP WERE RAW RECRUITS FROM NORTHWEST. Half of the men of the fam'btft "Lost Battalion" of the 77th Divi sion, heralded to the world by the New York newspapers as "NeW York's own," were in reality from Camp Lewis, declares Lieutenant Ed ward W. Akes, former Washington National Guardsman, who returned to his home in Seattle early this week from the Lqtterman General Hospital. Lieutenant Akers was wounded' while leading two of the platoons of the unit which four days later became the '.'Lost Battalion." "When we went, over the top-in the Argonne on the morning of Sep tember 26, 50 per cent of the meii were replacement troops from Camp Lewis,'' said Lieutenant Akers re cently. "A few days before, 1 went 1 »to the town of St. Menehold and got 1500 replacements for the regiment myself. Several Seattle men were-in the group and the division had 4000 replacements when it went into the flgbt. About half in my two pla toons were Camp Lewis men." Lieutenant Akers was first sergeant of D Company of the 161 st Infantry when that unit left this state ana was commissioned a second lieuuten ant at Camp Mills, L. I. He had served as a sergeant with .that organ ization when the 2nd Washington regiment was sent to Calexico in 1916. Upon the arrival of the 41st Divi sion in France, of which the 161 st Infantry was a part, it was made into a replacement unit and until August, 1918, when he was assigned to the 308 th Infantry of the 77th Division, Lieutenant Alters drilled recruits. September 26 he went over the top for the first time, his bat talion forming the leading wave. Fifty per cent of the organization were green men from Camp Lewis with but three weeks' tiaining in France and none in the United States. The second day of the Argonne drive they were fighting like veterans. Lieutenant. Akers said, and going in to the hardest fighting troops ever had. Machine gun nests were every where and while working through the dense underbrush the men did not know at what moment they might be shot. down. On the morning of the third day of the drive. September 28. Lieuten ant \kers started forward with two platoons. He had not gone very far S. IH-parlment of Agricultures chicken house was equipped with four rabbit hutches designed according to the directions of the I'nited States department of agriculture. In the main he raised Belgian hares only during the fall, winter and early spring up to the time of the setting season, when the Hpace occupied by the rhbbits was needed by the hens. Then he would reduce his rabbltry to the minimum point. In this way the rabbit quarters provided plenty of space, by the use of partitions, for six or more setting hens at a time. After the hatching season the owner would place the broody hens in the same pen with several rabbits, as the presence and hopping about of the rabbits would ultimately break the hens of their broodiness. The remarkable thing about these rabbit-raising operations was that valuable food was produced from weeds and waste, as practically the only feed for the rabbits was grass clippings, wild hay and weeds. Dur ing the young bearing season he would feed the does a little skim milk and a small amount of oats, but never more than one qnart of oats a week. In the course of two years he raised and ate about 75 rabbits, weighing an average of two pounds apiece. All this meat was produced as a by-product of his poultry opera tions with small expense or trouble. Another desirable point about the rabbits was that they required little care as compared with poultry. The rabbits cwere fed at any time of the day or night with satisfactory results. "It is a comparatively simple mat ter to kill and dress two rabbits In 10 minutes," remarked the suburban ite, "but I never was able to pick and dress a single chicken in less than double that period. My family did hot tire of the rabbits, because, as a rule, we altrnated the rabbit flesh with chicken and other fresh meats. The profits which I realized from my poultry and rabbit operations came entirely from the Belgian hares, as my White Plymouth Rocks only about ppid expenses, since I had to pur chase practically all my feed for thetn. However, It 1b a great conven ience for a suburbanite to have on hand two sources of fresh meat in addition to a plentiful supply of fresh eggs." when he met stiff machine gun re sistance and received a machine gun bullet which entered the left side of his back and' camo out through his right arm, leaving It paralyzed. He dropped, and lay in a slight depres sion by the side of a road near Binarvllle. His t#o platoons were held up and could not advance. Bullets were kicking up the dust all around him. The enemy was so close that failing to get him with machine gun and rifle bullets they threw a ''potato masher," eGrman hand gre nade, in his direction which added a second wound to his right arm. While the enemy amused them selves shooting at him. Lieutenant Akers gave orders to his two pla toons, and following out his instruc tions his men were able to clean out the machine gun nest Which had held; them up and were able to advance. These same men four days later were virtually annthiliated while the "Lost Battalion" was making its historic stand against the Htfn. IMP LNIS mm BE CUT # SHE ORIGINAL SITE OF 70,000 ACRES IS TO BE RE- . TAINED. The Camp Lewis reservation will be retained at its original size of about 70,000 acres, according to an nouncement of officials of the war de partment this week. Several of the officials said that the plan of re ducing the government reservation by about 30,000 acres had not been brought to their attention and that so far as they knew such action would not be countenanced. It is thought that the effort to re duce the camp site in size grew out of the fact that a number of the owners of property in the tract have retained an attorney, W. H. Abel of Montesano, in an effort to have the government reject a distant portion Of the reservation and return the property to the original owners. The property under contention lies a considerable distance from the ground actually occupied by the camp and has not been used by the government. The farmers and prop erty holders of the district are mak ing the effort to get the land back in belief that its return would in no way affect the future of the army camp. * Congressman Albert Johnson made the statement that he had no inten tion ot taking any part in the dis pute.
