Prom three to four square feet of floor space for every bird is recommended . A poorly ventilated house ? is foul , close and unhealthful .

It is especially important to make the walls absolutely tight . Sunlight is also needed for making the hens most comfortable . Plenty of window . space Is required . A...

— -PICTORIAI -—mi OLFMSTRUCnOJl [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 16 October 1929
— -PICTORIAI—mi OLFMSTRUCnOJl By H . B . Martin Control More Important Than Distance When Driving THE long , loose swing quite often is responsible for the long drive , but it is not the swing of the finished golfer , nor the successful golfer . Young golfers are Inclined to strive for distance with their tee shots , willing to gamble on keeping the majority of them in the fairway . Experienced players are content to keep the ball straight and with this aim in view they gradually shorten the arch and make an attempt to keep the swing under perfect control . The swing need not be short so long as it is compact and well timed . The finish of the swing does not go back , as a rule , as far as the shoulder . Further dipping of the club is unnecessary and only goes to prove that there has been a dipping also at the top of . the swing . With-the compact , well-grooved swing there Is little chance of one losing his balance , so the foot action is usually perfect ( Copyright . )
Birds Not Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 16 October 1929
Birds Not Wanted Most poultry keepers realize that there are two courses open to them in regard to unwanted males . One plan is to destroy them as soon as they can be distinguished ; and the other is to feed them well right from the first day and so bring them to a fleshy condition . The latter practice is sound so far as the early . cockerels are concerned , but very few poultry keepers approve of It for later broods . Some poultrymen &gt; do not hesitate to can all surplus fowls . &gt; Idleness Breeds Boredom An active woman stands less chance of making a hash of her life than a bored one . —American Magazine .
