corn should be wedge shape, with

cob, sad yellow corn a red one.

Pure-Bred Fowls Versus
Pure breeds offer the following
advantages over mongrels: (a)
There is reliability in their breed
ing, for having been purely bred
for many generations they will
produce their kind with unfailing
certainty. (b) Every fair test
that has ever been conducted has
shown that pure-bred chickens will
give a greater egg production than
the mongrels. (c) In a like man
ner it has been shown that the
pure-bred chicken will give an im
proved quality of meat (d) There
is a greater uniformity in the size,
shape and color of eggs and meat
produced by the pure breed. (e)
The first cost of pure-breds is but
slightly more than mongrels. (f)
The cost of keeping pure-breds is
no greater. (g) There is a more
attractive appearance to a flock of
pure-bred birds. (h) There is
more efficiency from the feed con
sumed when the flock is uniform.
(i) There is a good demand for
pure-bred birds for breeding pur
poses. (j) This demand means a
greater selling value, or, in other
words, a greater income from a
given number of birds,---A. F. Rolf
