uAii old can with a little kerosene
in it will do the business A lit o
c tftle oil grease may be added
One dipping of the affected birds
legs in this will end the scales
v The early hatched pullets will j
begin laying eggs soon and as
they are expected to furnish the
bulk of the winter eggs prepare e
r ample quarters for all the young
t stock To prevent crooked breast
bones the young fowls should
have poles about three inches
around or flat rails or lath three
or four inches wide
Those who expect fo make
their young chickens grow vig
orouslyand their hens lay well I
must not forget that they re
quire an abundance of mineral
foods and supply them with alII

any other feeds but just as es

Shepherds Watch atNight
Some historians contend that
the shepherds could not have
watched by night on the Bethle
Hem plains in December it e
ng a period of great inclemency I
In answer to this a wellknown
student says Bethlehem is
not a cold region The mercury
usually stands all the month of
December at 46 degrees Corn
is sown during this time and
grass and herbs spring up after
the rains so that the Arabs drive
their flocks down from the moun
tains into the plains The most
delicate never make fires until
about the end of November and
some pass the whole winter with
out them From these facts I
think tit is established without
doubt that our Savior was born
on the 25th of December the
day which the church through
out the world has united to cele
brate in honor to Christ s coming
in the flesh <

The Price of Butter 1
The discussion given to the
subject of cost of living has di
rected more or less attention to
the federal oleomargarine tax and
the price of butter People who
are in favor of repealing the
present oleomargarine law have
taken advantage of the situation
to loudly condemn as unDemo I
cratic a n d unAmerican this
burdensome tax on a pure
wholesome and nutritious food
They conveniently forget to ex
plain that over 97 per cent of
tht oleomargarine put upon the
market is taxed at only one
fouth cent per pound They do
not explain that only oleomarga
rine that is artificially colored is
taxed at tep cents per pound
Even if it were all taxed at
ten cents per pound it would
have absolutely nothing to do
with the price of butter after the
latter reaches thirty cents a
pound retail It costs about
fourteen cents a pound to pro
dues the very best grade of
oleomargarine Ad to this a ten
cent tax and the cost of produc
tion would Be twen four cents
The product could be retailed a t
thirty Cents at a handsome profit
to manufacturer and ret riler
Joking at the JIQeatjQllporn
ny viewpoint it is clearly seen
that the elaomartfanne law Has
absolutely nothg to dp with
the price of butter i
