THE HENS MAKE GOOD
Cape County Plays a Prominent
Part in Helping Missouri Lead
in Poultry Industry
Saturday, March 7th, goes on
record as Missouri Hen Day, and is
destined to mark an important de
velopment in one of the many re
sources possessed by the state.
Systematic and scientific attention
to poultry culture is transforming
what was treated a few years ago
as a mere snlc issue, into an in
dustry of vast proportions with pos
sibilities Ulmost unlimited. Ihe tiie
has not long passed when interest
in domestic fowls was confined to
the farm wife's efforts to raise suf
ficient poultry and eggs for home con
sumption, and if there happened
to lie ii slight over-plus it was con
signed to the nearby store and ex
changed for a few yards of calico
or enough jeans to make the little
hoy his first pair of pants.
Today the ma-kct value of the
poultry to he found in the close
confines of the hack yards of chicken
fanciers in Cape (iirardeau alone
is far in excess of the combined
poultry values of the entire county
a few years ago.
Cape (Iirardeau County has not
been laggard ill the new development
and Iiiih undoubtedly been of great
assistance in giving Missouri the
proud distinction of being the leading
chicken state nf the
Hen ilav will be I

hospital as the result of taking rar
bolic acid on her return home from
a moving-picture show at 10 o'clock
last night. She awakened her mother
and told her she had taken carbolic

It Beema a small thing to lose one's
tempei. But really ft means losing
one's hold over the brute part of one'a
nature. Irritation and rage are un
reasoning, brutal and Ignoble. It la
unwise, to say the least, to allow them
to take "the upper 'band even for a
