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

culation of air, are practically weath

GAMP TEWS MEN
IN LOST BANALION
HALE OE FAMOUS GROUP WERE
RAW RECRUITS FROM
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
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
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.

BE CUT # SHE
ORIGINAL SITE OF 70,000 ACRES
IS TO BE RE- .
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
