How tdStai* the Poults
When the potilts are first
placed in the! hdlise, it is essen-
tial to encircle the brooder
stove about‘2 feet from the
hover’ with a Strip of roofing
paper or cardboard about a
foot high After the third day,
gradually enlarge this circle,
removing it altogether on about
the tenth day. This will confine
the pouhs near the source of
heat and prevent chilling.
How to Teach Poults to Elat
Baby poults often are slow
in learning to eat and drink,
and some actually starve to
death. It is a worth-while prac-
tice to dip the beak of each
poult into milk or water, and
then into mash. Set it down
near a feeder close to the hov-
er. Extra feed and water placed
.under the hover also will en-
cOtirige the poults to eat and
Provide Enough Equipment
At the start provide two 1
gallon water containers for
each 100 poults, and for every
6 poults provide 1 foot of feed-
er space when feed can be eat-

disinfected are the best because
they should be cleaned and dis-
infected frequently. Provide
roosts for the poults as early as
the second week. Early roost-
ing eliminates much danger of

A new and finer Katy now serves the Southwest!
Within the past four years nearly a hundred
million dollars have been put back into Katy
properties to afford the most efficient rail trans-
1 portation the Southwest has eve/ enjoyed.
In spite of serious shortages of men and
» materials, every inch of main-line road bed
has been reballasted.... Nearly 350 miles
of aew steel have been laid ... 4,500,000
creosoted cross ties installed... 900 loco-
' motives given heavy repairs or rebuilt...
Revenue freight cars in bad order reduced
to 3/10 of 1 percent of ownership—a record “low’?
in the Company’s history.... All passenger equip-
ment has been repaired and renovated.... Stations,
service buildings and bridges strengthened, re-
paired and painted, and many other improve-
ment projects completed. And the Katy's
record of good housekeeping is outstanding. *
All this without a borrowed jenny—and at
the same time the mortgage djj$t was being
reduced approximately $40,000,000. (Vj
t The Katy is bnilding to keep pace with the '
new and greater Southwest. t
