Poultry Expert Visits Islands
A. A. Giersch, superintendent
of the Seattle-King County Poul
try Association, was a recent vis
itor to the Islands for the pur.
pose of looking over the poultry
sitittition and also inspecting
some of the birds raised here.
Mr. Giersch expressed his con
fidence in the future of the Is
lands by stating they would ul
timately be the poultry center of
the great Northwest as Petaluma,
‘Culifomia, has been of that sec
tion. He also stated that the
Seattle-King County Association,
which will hold its seventeenth
annual exhibit in Seattle on Dec.
4.9, 1916, has started an innova
tion by exhibiting and judging
on the Hogan plan for egg pro
duction.

some. This is because people think
that sending a deposit necessitates a
letter with it. That is not the case,
tho, Merely enclose your checks, prop

We verify the amount of the deposit by
a return receipt if you so desire.
VASHON STATE BANK
Ye People of Vashon
Mr. Theodore Mansfield, or,
as he is better known, ‘Ted,”
was the first man to run an auto
truck orany conveyance for tran
sportation of goods or people for
the accommadation of the resi
dents of Vashon Island. Ted
has always endeavored to give
complete satisfaction to Vashon
Islanders. If Vashon residents
over expect this Island to become
a prominent place it would seem
to be advisable to remain loyal
to men who have in the past
given satisfactory service, If
business pays, it is said Ted ex
pects to put on a larger truck.
To a few "‘boosters’ it seems we
should *‘Stick to the One Whom
We Know Can Be Trusted’” and
not try every “‘newcomer’ and
leave the “‘old timers,” for we
may be sadly mistaken in jump
ing to conclusions.
