MAKES HENS LAY
By W. S. Burgess, "is
Any poultry raiser can greatly in
crease his profits, easily and quickly,
by taking advantage of the 35 years'
experience of a successful poultryman.
A life long study of egg production
has resulted in a secret formula of
buttermilk and other valuable ingredi
ents that puts pep into lazy hens. Us
ers report increases of two to seven
times as many eggs.
This secret formula is now put up
in tablet form and is called Combs'
Buttermilk Compound Tablets. Simply
feed in water or mix with feed.

North Dakota Plan Best, Gov
ernment Expert Shows
ULLETIN No. 912 of the
United States depart
ment bf agriculture, just
issued, entitled "Hail In
surance on Farm Crops
iii the United States," re
views hail insurance laws passed by all
states and shows that the North Da
kota l&w, passed by the Nonpartisan
league administration, not only is the
cheapest in operation, but protects
more farmers than the laws of all
other states combined.
The bulletin, prepared by V. N. Val
gren, an expert on agricultural eco
nomic questions, says of the four
states which had laws in operation
during the year 1919:
"The total risks of the four state
hail insurance departments in opera
tion in 1919 •tfere approximately $139,
300,000, the premiums $6,095,000 and
the losses $4,500,000. Of the total
risks North Dakota had about 62 per
cent, South Dakota 23 per cent, Ne
braska 14 per" cent and Montana less
than 1 per cent."
The North Dakota hail insurance
cost farmers 28 cents for $7 worth of
insurance, both in 1919 and 1920, or a
flat 4 per cent rate, as compared with
rates of 10 and '12 per cent charged by
private insurance companies. The
rates of other states, as cited by the
United States department of agricul
ture, are as follows:
South Dakota—Four districts with
rates of 35 cents, 40 cents, 42 cents and
45 cents per acre, for $10 insurance.
Average rate, 4.1 per cent.
Nebraska Three districts with
rates of 25 cents, 40 cents and 60 cents
per acre, for $10 insurance. Average
rate 4.2 per cent.
Montana—State rate $1.20 maxi
mum for $12 insurance. Maximum
levied in 1919. Rate, 10 per cent.
When the rate charged by the state
is compared with the rate charged by
private insurance companies in the
same state the advantage of the North
Dakota law is still more apparent.
In Montana, with a state rate of 10
per cent, the private insurance rates
are 10 per cent to 15 per cent. The
saving under the Montana law at the
most is only one-third of the private
In Nebraska the private insurance
rates run from 4 per cent to 12 per
cent and the state rates from 2.5 per
cent to 6 per cent. The state rates
therefore run slightly more than
of the private rates.
In South Dakota the private rates
run from 6 to 12 per cent, two-thirds
of the state being in the zone at 8 per
cent or less, and state rates range
from 3.5 to 4.5 per cent, averaging 4.1
per cent, or slightly more than half of
the private rates.
Ire North Dakota the private rate is
10 per cent for most of the state, with
rate of 12 per cent in some western
counties. Therefore the farmers pay1
only two-fifths of the private rate in
most of the state and in the western
part pay only one-third.
Mr. Valgren states in the bulletin
that the average expense of private
companies is 35 per cent of the premi
ums collected. Of, this 15 per cent is
the usual commission, which has quite
commonly been 20 per cent in the past.
In comparison with this high ex
pense ratio the North Dakota hail in
on an expense ratio of 3.17 per cent.
