TURKEY IS ACTIVE FORAGER Fowl Must Have Plenty of Range and Chance to Feed on Roughage— Picks Up Own Food. Turkeys are active foragers and must have a chance to roam and feed Dn roughage at will.

It is remarkable'how quietly busi ness has re-adjusted itself all over the country from a war basis to a peace basis. After such a long per iod of destructive warfare it is sur prising that business conditions should remain on such an apparent ly solid footing. President Wilson stated in his message to Congress that the American business man was equal to the situation of recon struction and that business would come back to normal with very lit tle assistance from the Government. Labor will be absorbed into the var ious activities of the country as fast as demobilization takes place in the army. It will have a less dis astrous effect upon industry to find employment for these men when they are dismissed from the service than it had to call them so suddenly from their various occupations all over the country. The period of reconstruction promises a healthy resumption of business activity. A Communication was received from the war industries board stat ing that on and after December 1, 1918, the rules of the war industries board governing weekly newspapers will Lie withdrawn. It also states that their action is prompted by the fact that the amount of paper con sumed by the weekly newspapers is not sufficient to at this time, materially affect the newsprint sit uation. It is* rather unfortunate that the knowledge obtained by the board should be secured at the ex pense of the country publisher, but a little common sense should have prompted them to the fact that the country publisher who did not use economical methods in the manage ment of his business, would not be running the business long anyway. During the past' year the only country publishers who have sur vived are those who have used con servation methods all along the line. It takes money to be extravagant and we do not know of any brother pubilshers who are embarrassed by an over-supply of shekels. The local ministers are to be con gratulated upon their good sense in continuing to "keep the ban on." In some other towns where schools have not been opened because it was thought best to take no chances of prolonging the influenza epidemic, the churches and Sunday schools have been opened and morning and evening services held. Iftheauth-I orities consider it dangerous toj open school on account of the flu, it surely is equally dangerous to re sume church services. If the good roads fever were as contagious as the flu we would all get out with a pick and shovel in stead of knocking around with a hammer. Now that William G. McAdoo has resigned as secretary of the treasury and it is the concensus of opinion that he will not seek the democratic nomination for president in 1920, he is beginning to receive some of the praise and expression of confidence that were withheld from him by the narrow partizan papers which ex-j pected to oppose his candidacy for president. Even the hide-bound Spokesman-Review, which never gave him a kind word during his administration, states editorially that he was without doubt one of the greatest, if not the greatest man who has filled that very important office." This is following the usual, custom of giving "epitaphy" after one is dead instead of giving "taffy" while one is living. Bill Nye, the great humorist, once said: "I would rather have flower while I can smell 'em."—Star-Mirror. Leland Items At the disappearance of the "flu" from our community, school work was resumed on the 25th with but a meager attendance. With the malady increasing at most points near by the patrons in most pari are inclined to keep theirs at home. i 1 j ■ [ Thanksgiving was observed with usual display of turkey together! with its retinue of followings Myron Baack and Walter McGhee made a hasty visit with their home folks at Thanksgiving, returning to Moscow the same day. Geroge Fleshman was a delayed Thanksgiving visitor to his home folks and the "joy" of returning on Saturday to Camp Lewis. Miss Carlson, former teacher at the Welker school, was a recent visitor in our community. Miss Hazel Harper of Culdesac is a new recruit to the school. She is with her sister, Mrs. Prof. Case. Prof. Case and family visited with home folks and friends at Culdesac, Thanksgiving. Mrs. J. W. Piper is in Spokane where she hopes to recover her nor mal health. Smallpox is still prevalent about Leland. It would seem that a more vigilant watch would be maintained about so malignant dis ease, but until subjects of the mal ady are by force kept under strict quarantine, we can have no assur ance of it being stamped out. Ed. Wegner and family have mov ed to Cameron. Jesse Hoffman and Ford Parks are doing grand jury duty at Moscow. Henry Koepp who was slightly wounded is again out of the hos pital. Mrs. William Hamilton's brother of Iowa, with his family are visit ing at the Hamilton home. A report received here states that Otis Fleshman, a former resident of this place but later of somewhere in Canada died of influenza at his home recently. After spending the summer with her brohter, Arthur Locke, Miss Clara left last Satruday for her home on the Sound. Ford Parks has installed a new piano in their home. Also he has a new Nash car. Tact Always Wins. Of this truth we may rest assured : The tactful person never gets into trou ble. She may go anywhere, mingle with all typos of people, and then pass onward leaving only a most favorable impression in their minds. Therefore, the truly practical one will gladly put herself out a wee hit in order to retain the good will of others. For this at titude will not only help her immeas urably, but will certainly make easier and smoother the ways of all with whom she comes in contact. Women and Housecleaning. When a woman returns from a month's visit she says, "Oh, how I dread to begin cleaning up this house." But she doesn't. You can tell by the glee with which she seizes the broom and the duster and stirs up a great cloud of dust that she its n<»v realizing that which she has eagerly anticipated ail tlie time she was away. There is nothing a woman enjoys so much as kicking up a dust. For the dust is ture to come down again, and the source of fun is never exhausted.— Kansas City Star. "Bring Back My Soldier Boy to Me" The following poem was handed in by Mrs. Frank Palmer: Out on the ocean, Sailing o'er the stormy sea, Is a sweet-faced soldier boy Sp,very dear to me. Gone to a foreign land To fight for liberty; When the cruel war is over Bring him back to me. Chorus. Angels guard my soldier Wherever he may be, Sweet be his dreams Upon the rolling sea. Watch o'er him kindly, Bring him ever peace and joy, Guide him safely home to me My sweet soldier boy. For life and liberty, The dear red, white and blue, He left his home And all he loved most true; Fighting 'neath the colors Which the foe can ne'er destroy He the victory will win, My pwn soldier boy. When peace and happiness Upon this heart shall reign, When those who've parted Shall meet and love again; 0, may my darling Not be numbered with the slain— Let me welcome to my heart My soldier boy again.

(Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) When there is no snow on the ground pullets on the farm ought to get a large part of their feed by for aging. Whether they can get it de pends not only upon what food may be available but on whether they have been so distributed as to get the feed on tlie range. To find whether they require more is to observe how far they range and whether they find feed enough to keep them busy most of the time, and then to test them further by seeing how much they eat heartily in tlie morning, and then go foraging, and also how much they eat just be fore going to roost at night. Bullets that forage well and have tlie oppor tunity to get plenty of green food, worms anil bugs cannot be overfed by giving them what grain they will eat up clean. Careful feeders learn just how much their flock will take, and so avoid waste while keeping the birds full fed. Pullets in confinement should have the same ration they will have in tlie winter, and be liberally supplied with the vegetable feeds available at the season. Liberal use of these makes it ••• T ' -C smm gfe : - : mm Hens Scratching in Litter for Grain. possible to feed grains heavily, to pro mote egg production, and yet keep the birds in the best of physical condition. A good war-time standard ration is: Mash. 2 parts cornmeal 1 part bran 1 part middlings 1 part ground oats 1 part meat strap or fish meal . Scratch Feed. 1 part cracked corn 1 part heavy oats Green Feed. Cabbage, sprouted oats or any avail able green vegetable. Another good ration with less beef scrap is as fol lows: Mash. 5 parts mixed feed (bran and mid dlings) 4 parts cornmeal 1 part beef scrap or fish meal Scratch Feed. 1 part cracked corn Green Feed. Cabbage, sprouted oats or any avail aide green vegetable. For a moist mash use eight parts of mixed feed instead of five. Sprouted oats are recommended as green feed, not as preferable to cabbage and other green vegetables when diese can be obtained, but in order to use oats as much as possible. SUCCESS IN RAISING PIGEONS Good Breeding Stock Is Essential and It Is Best to Purchase From Reliable Breeder. Good breeding stock is necessary to succeed in pigeon raising. It is advis able to buy pigeons from reliable breeders—those who guarantee their stock. Many failures in squab raising have been due to poor stock—old pig eons past their period of usefulness, or perhaps too many male birds. There are a great many varieties of pigeons, but only a few are used in squab rais ing. The Homer is generally consid ered tlie most popular variety. SIX VARIETIES OF TURKEYS Bronze, White Holland, Bourbon Red, Black, Narragansett and Slate Are Recognized. The American Standard of Perfec tion recognizes six different varieties of domesticated turkeys ns most de sirable, the many others being largely mongrel, breeding from which is al ways uncertain as to quality of the piogeny. The standard varieties are the Bronze, the White Holland, Bour bon Red, the Black, the Narragansett and the Slate.
