Hens must finish molting before cold wea-. ther starts or they will not lay in the winter months. Because of this fact a special combination of feed should be given to hasten the growth of the new feathers, according to Rcss M. Sherwood, acting head of the department of poultry husbandry in the Agricultural College. "Sure milk and beef scraps are useful at all seasons," says Mr.

Sherwood, "but linseed oil meal is especil-ly good at this time. There are certain food materials in oil meal which are needed in feather building and which are not found in the" other feeds mentioned. Practical feeders often point out that ail meal loosens the old feathers. This may be the rasult of the rapid growth of new feathers caused by food materials contained in the oil meal." The following ration is recomended for the molting season: 60 pounds of corn chop, 60 pounds of wheat bran, 20 pounds of meat scraps, and 15 pounds of old process oil meal. This feed in combination with a scratching feed made up of two or more of the cheapest grains grown locally.

After the fowles have completed the molt and are well feathered, this mash may be given: 60 pounds of corn chop, 60 pounds of wheat bran, 30 pounds of wheat shorts and 20 pounds of meat scraps. Sour milk is useful with both of these rations. esiauusu aa txiuusiuu system ui luuusmcu, agiiuuuuiai aim vocational education that will reach any farmer, business man or laborer in Southeast Kansas who wishes to obtain the information which would be extremely useful to him in his particular vocation, thereby reaching the busy people who could not have the time to spare to attend I also advocate highier salaries for the teachers in our schools, which will enable them to obtain better qualifies- SEVERE RIOTING IN VIENNA I San Antonio, Tex, Oct. 21.

I Cash Versus Credit. It seems unbelievable, but it's nevertheless a fact, showing the entire lack of any sense of justice, that many people regard their local stores as merely institutions of accommodation. When these people have cash to spend it goes to the far away or nearby mail order houses, but when fimes are dull, when they are sick or out ot work, or during the season when farmers are not turning their pro'duce into cash, or the city employee is marked off the pay roll, what do they do? Do they write to the catalogue house and ask for credit? If they did do you think they would get it? Not on your life! Those concerns must have cash, must have it in advance; must have it before you can even see the goods you buy. The consumer sends his money and then sits down and waits until they get good and ready to fill his order. But when home people want credit or favors of any kind they hustle off to their home merchant, very obligingly order what they want and and tell him to charge it, expecting him to wait at least from one to six months for his pay.

3 A Dollar Lost. It should be the slogan of every rural consumer never to send away for goods that he can just as well buy at home. Every time you send a dollar to an out of town dealer, as far as you and the community are concerned, it is practically out of circulation. Your own home merchant is the one who helps to keep up your schools, your churches and your town. He is the one who deserves your trade and not some catalogue house in Chicago or.
