BRIEFS FROM BILLVILLE We've had blizzards to burn, but DO fire to burn 'em. It ain't lonesome In the wilderness when you start a sawmill to keep you company. The profiteer hies high, because the devil is a friend that won't set fire to his wings. As cold as they say this old world Is we don't find 'em willing to swnp It for the fireworks. Some of the all-knowing ones have actually quit running the war and have gone to work to make a living till the war ends. PHOTOS v? But line of work in this section.

Some chick feeds contain a large quantity of grit aud may contain groins of poor quality, so that they should be care fully examined and guaranty us to quality socured before purchase. .

The beef scrap may be left out of the dry mash and fed In a separate hopper, so that the chickens can eat all of this feed they desire. If the beef scrap Is to be fed separately it Is advisable to wait until the chicks are ten days old, although some poultrytnen put the beef scrap before the young chickens at the start without bad results.
