Taylor wad engaged to fill the va cancy upon the subject of Poultry growing for Eggs, whose address proved to be a dear exhibition of the poultry Industry, which in the aggre gate from 8tatUtict U larger than any single branch of farm Industry. t our request Mr. Taylor give us the following concerning his experi ence in the industry. 'Having kept an accurate account with a small flock of hens one year. the year of 1889 I found my hens with with proper care had netted me close to !i2 each, when conducted along market poultry lines only; and the following year three times this num ber of hens, confined to the same range and buildings, (too crowded) jave a net return of $1.25 per hen. Other pursuits took my attention from this opening tspecialty, and I gave it little thought until four or live yearn ago, when the pure bred side of the question challenged my attention. I entered it with no parti cular faith, only as one speculates on a pleasant recreation, but within five years it has assumed the full propor t ions of a business. And from personal experience I ans wer yes, emphatically to the question "Can a man make a Hying with poul try?'' but If you prpfer to vary the question, ''can this or that man, or can I myself make a living from chickens?" I know It Is not a question of what the chicken can do, but Is purely a question of the man. His taying business qualities being right and in the right place, he can do well. I would not pretend to say how well. I said with me it is now in the pro portions of a business. I am paying liisrh prices to get the best stock. I uc printer's ink freely, my corres pondence araonnts to a task of from n to 2 hours an evening to answer the same, and that even with the aid of printed circulars that answer the bulk of questions, this item of corres pondence, a business man will at once recognize as an evidence of a demand that is waiting for some one to (ill, at what profit I cannot say beyond that it has thus far increased by a trifold ratio nearly, each year in my experi ence. I once paid $2.00 for a 5 a pound cockerel, some of my friends said, "it will be a good while before you see your money again " Since the first of Jan. 1903 I have shipped 4 birds none for less than $1.50 each and several foa three, fourand five dollars each. In 1902 I shipped over 4000 eggs for hatching purposes. I can bell more eggs now for $3.00 a setting of 13, then I used to sell In the home market at 20 cts a dozen. Until 'last year I sold practically nothing near home, but I have shipped as far as Florida and Oregon, of late I am sell ing a good deal near home. I recently declined an offer from Ohio of $25.00 for a single cocherel, for the simple reason that I did not have the quality of bird the order re quired, this points safely I have not yet reached the limit of prices I may secure. I shall certainly try to pro duce some quality that will meet the the most fastidious demand. To many it must seem as it did to me, that such prices are all fiction.

MOTHER'S FRIEND makes childbirth easy by preparing the system for parturition andthus shortening labor. The painful ordeal is robbed of its terrors, and the danger lessened to both mother and child; the time of confinement is shortened, the mother rested, and child fully developed, strong and healthy. Morning sickness, or nausea arising from pregnancy, is prevented by its use. As pregnancy advances, the breasts en large, become swollen and hard. Long before the child is born, they are prepar ing for the secretion of milk. It is import ant that they receive early attention. Mother's Friend softens the skin and facilitates the secretion of Life Fluid. Undeveloped breasts, hard -caked shortly after delivery, are the result of non treatment, and likely to culminate in Mammary Abscess, from which so many suffer excruciating pain and are left wit'i 4Vim nrcrn Tvr-mnn An 1 1 w lrr,rfi?rl Soft net, plUtUltY and expsnnion sregiVcnto 1 AT nd canting an esty Uaue of the child.

No more than hanking U It a busl less for every body, but like banking, if every body tried It, a few would do well, and manv will fall. Old John Robinson of Circus fame, said, "If every body understood their business as well as I do mine, they would all succeed." It is adv isable to grow into any thing rather than jump In. There is a thought incident to the subject of narration, that may plant good seed In the resolution of some bright boy or girl, and even reach the calloused error of some paternal con- conclusion. In all the lines of busi ness I ever engaged, nothing ever so clearly evidenced the needs of an education for farmers and artisans, artists or laborers of all kinds, par ticularly producers of fine live stock, or the patented device of an inventor. To make these lines fully fruitful, re quires tact to adopt methods of busi ness men, skill to devise a letter or circular that will enter Into finer de tails of the business, than will the ef fort of the professional advertising agency, a training to read understand ingly and properly filter what to read and a self possessed security in ones ability to present the claims of his work under all conditions, and to all classes of patrouage, (I will ask the IMitor to quote that little Item of scripture aiout"thc rose unseen," (as I don't remember what it is. ) "Full many a flower is born to bloom uu seen, and waste Its fragrance on the desert air." then I will add, that many a line bred animal has gone to the shambles that could have been sold for ten times the price, and many a small device of the machanic enjoys only limited use, all for the want of a trained business educated organizer to put it upon a wider market.

Osterhout last Tues day afternoon, where they held memorial services in honor of the memory of Frances Willard, the rcut temperance worker and leader of the White Ribbon movement, who passed from earth-life five years ajjjo. Each member responded at roll cull with quotations from Miss Willard's writings, also stating what they admired most about her The program was as follows: Heading of 18 verses of Phil. II. s'oiij; --"Simply Trusting" Quotations The Frances Willurd Memorial Fund. . . Mrs. Wilbur Locke Poem "After Five Yeuib"...:rs. Carman Solo "Wondrous City-' Mrs. Friedly Miss Willard's Homes" Mrs. Palmer "Miss Willurd hs it Friend and Leader" Mrs. Osterhout Poem "Flowers" Mrs. Jenks New -Memltrs Welcomed. ,.Ti..iii.n....i,. S Mrs. Friedly iut...- uuu .... Mrg Wilder Following the program the ladies indulged in a .social hour during whien ngnt refreshments or cocoa and wafers were served which min gled with light hearted chat made a fitting close for an interesting after noon. Fitting tributes were paid to the memory of Miss Frances Willard as an earnest public leader and or ganizer of the W. C. T. U. ,kShe was a friend to all, her faith was as truly a ruling characteristic of her friend ship as of her religious nature. She believed in God. He was the most real fact in the universe to her, but she also believed in men and women as sons and daughters of God; and because she believed in them, be cause she always saw the possible shining through the apparent, she raised them to a plane of belief in themselves. There are countless men and women all over the world to-day living useful lives, filling po sitions of trust and responsibility who owe to Frances Willard all that they are because her words first aroused their dormant powers and gave them faith in themselves. Frances Willard is not dead; she is alive fon vermore and this is the lesson taught us today. Serve God by serving man, love God through , loving man, bring the beauty of, holiness into the everyday life, and lift humanity up to its rightful p ane of sonship to the Father and brotherhood each to the other." j Five years since censed to beat that lov inpj I Ill-art Where every humnn interest had a part ! 1 Whore every heavenly influence was nursed.
