BIG SAVING MADE BY CULLING OUT SCRUBS Nonproducing Fowls Eliminated From Many Flocks. Extension Agents Explain Methdd & Weeding Out So Thoroughly That Poultry Raisers Soon Be come Efficient. (Prepared by the United Department of Agriculture' Approximately $40,006 was saved to poultry men In Texas last year through the work of extension Workers em ployed co-operatively by the United States Department of Agriculture and the state agricultural college. In 14 counties of Maine the saving was about $1,394.40. These sums repre sent the money value of culling, es timated on the feed cost of one cent a day a hen. In Maine 15,964 hens were examined In culling demonstrations and 4,648 culls removed. In Texas about 15, 000 hens were culled. That Mils cull ing was successful is shown by the followlug figures : 19 birds were culled from a flock of 54, and In the next seven days the culls laid only 20 eggs; 290 birds were culled from flocks to-' tallng 840 and in the next seven days laid 20 eggs. Of the entire number! of hens culled in Maine, the percentage, of egg production for the entire flock; was 32.3, for the hens left after cull-! iug 40.7 per cent, and for the culls] 4.5 per cent. I The number of poultry owners In-, structed in Maine was 3,043 and In ( Texas 8,000, many of whom afterward: culled their own Hocks. The estimated; savings represent only a part of the total value of this work. As a result of the demonstrations in one section in Maine, 79 persons eliminated 1,420 birds us culls, while In Texas the cull ing that resulted from all demonstra tions was valued at $12."), 000. The extension agents not ouly dem onstrated that the non-producing hen could be eliminated but explained the method of culling so thoroughly that those present could go home and put It Into practice nearly as effectively as the demonstrators themselves. New Name for Galoshes. Norman Karr, th<? five-year-old son of Prof, und Mrs. II. M.

He pointed at the shoes and said to his mother: "Mother, are thope the] 'bootleggers' that daddy talks nbout?"i ? Indianapolis New?. ANTHONYS CREEK DISTRICT TICKET. for president board of EDUCATION.
