customers of at least 810.00 on each vehicle. Call and see them.
Handsome, well built and comfortable.

'eShhTIAL POINTS OF
A GOOD POULTRY HOUSE
A saultble poultry house isa necee
N17Y p1rt of the equipment for the
eleMt farm lock. The house should
'be es sestructed as to keep the
birb gMrfectly dry and keep out all
dI rat it ehould be so arranged that
the ssllght will reseh all Interior
parts at some time during the day. It
SsoueM be eoavenlent to work in and
easr to keep clean.
A hoese sixteen feet squares, or one
smntaintUg the same amount of foor
spaee,I is sudlently large for one
handre hesa in a climate like that
'aof Loisiana where the birds ean
have tree rnage practically every day
It the pear. The house should faeo
the south, and the south wall should
have a large opening to provide yen
ilation and to admit sunlight.
All craeks in the north wall should
be sloeed, as well as the ones in the
east sad west walls at least a tsr tfo
ward as the middle of the houser The
root should be perfectly tight so as
net isto leak.
The reests should extene aloug the
bak ato the bhee, running parallel
to the nt wall, sad should all be
ea a level. It is beet to use what is
kn as a dropping board. This is
t simply a wide board placed about
thity lashes above the Boor. The
reests a placed six or eight inches
ste thts boar.  ns  rraegme I
gsaetly foailitates cleaning, tad keeps
the em~sa oor space free for the
hea.
There should be one nest for every
eair to si hea. These should be
plaea where they will be easily so
esesible to the bene, and convenieat
for the attedant.
It te house has a dirt loor, re
move ueer tebhes from the top at lenst
once a year and replace with dels
soil. The level of the foor should
be above the outside ground level, and
Stf aeeesary. small drainage ditches
' should be put in to carry off rain we
ter. Keep the foor dry.-A. F. Rolt,
Poultry Specialist. Extension Dlvi
slon, Louisiana State University.
Remember that the question is not
whether you personally may feel that
you can afford to waste food; the
point is that the Nation can not af
ford to have any food wasted by
anybody.
Is there a food pledge card display
ed in your windows? If not, why
not?
