Your 1928 Pullet Flock
(By F. W. Kazmeier, Bryan, Texas)
It is not too early to be thinking
about the important thing, if you
want Fall and winter eggs. It is a
mistake to keep to many old hens
instead of growing pullets. It is
true, that it takes time and money to
grow good pullets .however, it does
not cost but very little more to grow
a good pullet, than a poorly gred pul-
let. The only difference in cost is
in initial cost of the baby chicks. The
cost of feed and labor is alike on both
the well bred pullet as on the non-
Many people make a serious mis-
take, in keeping too big a part of
their fiock, consisting of old hens or
even young hens. At least 50 per
cent of the flock should consist of
well developed pullets and some times
we think that 75 per cent is not too
high. Pullets will pay when eggs are
high in price, and that is early in the
winter and Fall. They will aslo lay
just as many later in the year. Many
poultry flocks are unprofitable, be
cause too large a unmber of them
predominate in two and three yearold
hens. The mortality also is greater
among old stock than among young
stock. Some have said that pullets
are not desirable for breeders; this,
however, is not true. Well matured
pullets make the best of breeders.
This is just another old idea that has
We have found that the same ap-
plies to male birds. Early hatched
cockerels make betetr breeders than
two and three year old male birds.
Profitable poultry keeping call for re-
newing from 50 to 75 per cent of the
entire flock each year.
Barred Rocks and S. C. R. I. Reds
Breeds alike the Rocks and all other
breeds should be hatched earlier than
the smaller breeds like the Leghorns
and Anconas. For fall layers Rocks
and Reds and similar breeds should
not be hatched much later than last
of April to May 15. There is good
money in growing poultry for the
broiler and fryer market. Today I
was offered 38 cents per pound for
broilers delivered and weighed in New
We want to call special attention
to the program and to the special
meeting to be held at the Church of
Christ, beginning next Sunday, April
1, and continuing through Sunday,
April 8. This will be a meeting out
of the ordinary, as many of the
various pastors over this section of
the state will participate, and there
is no doubt but what there will be
some very instructive lessons. It
will be well worth the time of any one
to attend these services. The pastor
and congregation of the church extend
a special invitation to every one to
attend these services.

Union Warehouse. The regular an-
nual meeting of the stockholders of

be present, as a board of directors are
to be elected at this meeting,

a two and half pound fryer would
net 80 cents each, which is a profit-
White Leghorns and Small Breeds
It is true, that produce men are
penalyzing White Leghorn broilers
about two cents per pound, but in
spite of this, our experience and ob-
servation leads us to believe that they
are the most profitable from stand-
point of egg-production. Leghorns
and other small breeds, however,
should not be hatched before April, if
the are hatched before April, they will
almost be sure to go into the early
Fall moult, which of course, knocks
them out as Fall and early Winter
layers. Last year practically all
early hatched Leghorn flocks, on ac-
count of extremely cold weather in
December, were thrown into a pre
In the light of the many uses to
which gas is put today, and the bil-
lions of cubic feet that are sold an-
nually to manufacturers and homes,
it is interesting to note the attitude
of the people toward this great time
and labor-saver when it was first in-
troduced into England in 1809.
It was almost impossible to get the
people to use it, and during the first
two years the company furnished gas
free of charge to calm the fears of
residents that it could not be safely
Many queer laws were passed re-
garding the use and sale of gas, one
of which was that all gas pipes must
be kept as least six inches from any
wall, for lear the pipes would get hot
and start a fire.

BBSS! K is difficult to know what
to put In their school
boxes 250 days of the year. It Is
equally puzzling when they are at
home all the time to provide whole-
some and nutritious little tidbits
that will please them.
Not many mothers realise the nu-
tritional ralue of Swiss cheese,
which Is very rich in proteins. The
function ot this food principle is
to build body tissue and yield en-
ergy, all very essential to a grow-
ing child. Real Swiss cheese, be-
ing a highly concentrated food
with an aromatic flavor, supplies
these requisites appetlslngly and
conveniently. Here are a few Bug
gestlons for Switserland tidbits
that suit the school box, the lunch
eon table, or serve as an Interim
luniot High Sandwiches:
Butter thin slices of graham
bread and put together In sand-
wich fashion with a filling made by
chopping one hard boiled egg and
adding to it two tablespoonfuls of
chopped Swiss cheese. Season with
salt and pepper, mix with mayon-
naise and spread between the but-
tered slices of graham bread. A
leaf ot lettuce will further Improve
this tasty and wholesome sand-
wich. A few sweet pickles may be
chopped with the egg and cheese
mixture, or thin strips ot sweet
pickle may be placed on the filling
Swiss Drop Cakes:
Use any gingerbread recipe and
bake in muffin tins. Put in enough
batter to half fill the
plaoe a thin slice ot genuine
cheese on the batter and
enough batter to fill the muffle i
three-quarters full. Bake* tm m
Boll the required number of i
twenty minutes. Then drop
Into cold water. Halve tbe e«r*~
lengthwlse, and remove y otto-
Mash these well, adding a tififr-
melted butter, salt and papr« ;
Then for each egg add a teasprar
ful of grated Switserland' ch«w
and enough mayonnaise to molvv
