J A SALAD PUZZLE SOLVED! 9 MADISON COUNTY PIONEER DIED NEAR NORTH ZULCH MANY a housewife has had^ oc casion to s?y with a sigh, "I've tried all sorts of salads to tempt my husband but he won't eat them. And I kr.ow he should, for the fruits ar.d vegetables are really necessary for health." Sometimes, lec us whisper it, the. reason hubby won't eat salads is juft because he is stubburr.. Eut more often it is because the salads are so flavorless. The obvious remedy is to use more highly flavored ingredients. As an old colored r.:?.n:my used to say, "Le's jes' jimp 'er up a bit." Pineapple Hath Charms And what could ve a better way to "jimp up" a sak.d than by the use of full flavored, rich Rr.waiian pineapple. Certainly a salad w\.Ich contains this delicious fruit will captivate the heart of even the most obdurate salad hater. Red Star Salad: Drain the syrup from a can of pineapple tid-bits. Cut an equal quantity of tender celery into smr. lip icces, sprinkle with lemon juice, and stan...

A sickly brood is discouraging to say the least, and cer- tainly enough to take the joy out of the poultry business, and, perhaps, the profits at the same time. It is the simple and common things most people overlook. Bowel Trouble or Non-Infectious White Diarrhoea. Many people when the notice white diarrhoea among the chicks jump to the conclusion that the disease is caused by a germ; if they bought the chicks they blame the hatchery or poultry farm that produced the chicks, if they hatched the chicks from their own eggs in their own incubator, but fed a commercial baby chick feed, they place the cause to the feed. Prac- tically all the white diarrhoea, or more than ninety per cent, is not caused by a disease germ, but rather by any of the following errors in management: Feeding too...

His hoard is a good winter iood for humans and man has shown that he realized this by helping Nature to produce large supplies of nuts by planting and cultivating nut trees. Even then the whole problem was not solved, for the nuts would not keep between crops. The answer to this was found in the discovery that shelled nuts, packed in tin cans from which the air had been ex- hausted, kept perfectly. So now man is the equal of th...

RULES FOR BECOMING A SELF-MADE FAILURE o 1. Don't show your ignorance and ask a lot of goofy questions when a salesman calls to let you in on some fine investment that he admits him- self will make you instantaneously rich. Show him you ar« a wise bird and inquire the nearest way to the dotted line. 2. Remember an optimist is a man who doesn't need to save anything now because he can start that any old time. Be an optimist. 3. Don't waste any of your valu- able time listening to these Busy Bennies who are always giving out free advice about late hours, running with fast company and being classi- fied generally as a hot potato. 4. When in doubt, go in debt. 5. Don't get a bunch of fancy ideas about promptness in keeping business engagements. Down in their hearts they all have more respect for you if you make 'em wait. 6. Multiply your income by two or something and don't sign up for any installment payments beyond that amount. A man has to have some kind of a system or something or t...

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- descript pullet. 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 lar...

As I ^rU to beonly a spectator, my name did not figure largely, but my picture did help adorn the pages of two Dallas dailies. But that was not what I made the trip for. It was worth a trip to Dallas to hear Hon. Cone John- son's speech, to say nothing of those by Hon. Cullen Thomas, Dr. J. B. Cranfill, Dr. C. C. Selecman and others. The women who spoke were among the most brillant in Texas. In the meeting of Dry Democrats on Thursday there were more than 60 cities and towns represented, and the body passed resolutions favoring ins- tructions to the delegates at the Hous- ton Convention to vote for endorse- ment of the 18th Amendment and a platform demand for strict enforce- ment of prohibition. Moreover, only Pros whose record is good and whose allegiance to piinciple is sound shall be nominated for President and Vice- President. The sentiment of the gath...

Chief Engineer W. F. Steffins of the Fire Protection of the New York Central Railroad supports this by ad ding his comment that advanced liv- ing demands advanced protection. "Contrast," said Steffins, "the standard of living of fifty wears ago with that of today, in the average home, not only as far as food is con- cerned, but also with reference to such incidental as heating, lighting, plumb- ing, ventilation, interior decoration, telephone, radio, phonograph, vita- phone, moving pictures, etc." In brief, while we live in an age of marvels, as viewed rom the standpoint of fifty years ago, do we...
