We suggested to him that he encourage his patrons to add eggs to the enterprise. Not any old eggs, but real good freshly laid eggs, clean and guar anteed. On the same trip, one good lady came into Tupelo and en gaged her eggs to an enterprising citizen at a uniform price above the market. These eggs are now delivered through Mr. Barrett. This suggestion is not a new thing by any mean3. It has been tried out and proven successful in many instances. Such a thing as a fresh egg in hot weather, delivered direc ly from the farm twice per week, is attracting city housewives. These eggs may he handled in Tupelo by the cream ery or by some local merchant if the creamery does not care to take it. Such eggs are worth a few cents more per dozen than common eggs and the housewives are willing to pay the extra price to get eggs that are absolutely fresh, newly laid and handled in --_ •juuitui j caituiia, Miss Lena Bolt, county agent in home economics, will gladly co-operate with any community in this matter and help in grading and packing these eggs in vthe proper cartons for delivery in dezen lots. One hundred pure bred well fed hens on every farm in Lee county will do more to help tide over the change that is sure to come on account of boll weevils than any other live stock with the same amount of investment. Again, the returns come daily. They will take the place in money income of three to four bales of cotton when prices are ten cents per pound and seed in proportion. As proof of the above state ment, we give the following re port from Mrs. J. P. Castles, Of Sessums, who is a member of the Co-operative Egg Selling Asso ciation, and whose husband is a member of the Creamery Asso- i ciation. Mrs. Castles has kept 90 hens i :his year in compliance with my , •equest to keep 100. She reports | :or the first eight months as foi- ! ows: I iiggs sold tor breeding purposes at 5c each. ..___$ 76.65 j 5ggs sold at market prices_ 122 01 1 Stock sold as breeders_ 19 50 Total _$218.16 ^« No account is taken of the lundreds of eggs used at home ind the many broilers eaten at lome, nor the 75 pullets and 22 :ockerels on hand yet. She can | sell the stock on hand for more; han a dollar each. Some of you j." nay think that is high, but she; tas good stock and my demand !or auch stock warrants me in laying she can sell for more than t dollar each. Mrs. Castles has spent for feed M5.60. Allowing the young stock ’ >n hand and what she ate at lome to offset the feed consumed ither than she bought, it leaves a net profit of $152.56. How many farmers in Lee county have made that much net profit an three bales of cotton, yes, four bales? But you can’t grow cotton now, and you can grow hens. E. P. Clayton. Professor of Poultry Husbandry A. & M. College, Miss. P. S —The home grown feed used was wheat, oats, corn and skim milk.
