Sorghum is really the best sweet one can use for a growing family as it contains the body building substances, calcium or line, iron nnd vitamins besides the sugar which merely produces energy. It is easy to substitute sorghum for sugar in cakes nnd puddings.

HOPE RETAIL LUMBER YARB J. M. Harbin, Mgr. ^ Phone 178 KANSAS CITY, Mo. —(NEA)—For that tired, jaded feeling, try raising turkeys. That's the advice of Mrs. S. R. Layton of this city. Last spring Mrs. Layton was near n nervous breakdown. As the result of her work as a leading member of the Athenaeum, women's civic organization, committee chairman of the Women's City Club, and a staunch church supporter, '.ier telephone rang almost constantly. She had no time to rest. In the midst of the social season Mrs. Layton, tired out, received an offer from her sister, Mrs. A. E. Johnson, to go put to her farm and raise turkeys, "You do not make much money, but you could have the summer away from things which are driving you almost hysterical," Mrs. Johnson told tier sister. Mrs. Layton accepted. She put away her modish dresses and donned overalls and heavy boots. She had her home telephone disconnected. She sent word to all of her club and churct^-committees that she was going to be out of the city for the summer. Work of Different Sort She paid ?1 each for 583 baby turkeys and turned them out into a pasture on her sister's farm. Then started a summer of great activity in getting the young birds ready for the Thanksgiving market. But even though the work was hard, she enjoyed it, for it was different from the trying, nerve-wracking social duties back in the city. At first Mrs. Layton tired easily, but soon she was able to follow her birds about the farm and along the country roads. It became a pleasure instead of a task. About the time she had the birds accustomed to the farm, a grasshopper hords swept across the midwest. While thest insects played havoc with neighboring farms, the turkeys kept them cleaned off the farm of her sist- WE EXCHANGE Meal or Flour for shelled milling corn. We'll grind your corn into meal. SOUTHERN GRAIN & Produce Co. Phone 248 er. It wasn't long before the neighbors were asking her to drive her turkeys over their fields. In this way, the turkeys got a lot of free-meals. The price of ?1 each for the turkeys seemed a bit high to old hands in the .section, but Mrs. Layton called attention to ,the.fact that the .hatching .'of young turkeys is the hardest part •of rearing them for market, and, that she did not have time when she started in the business to wait to get a start by the egg-laying and hatching route. Despite the pr.ce paia for the birds, howerev, Mrs. Layton will realize quite a nice profit from their sale, she points out. She has successfully 550 out of the 583 birds. By Thanksgiving they will be grown to their full sive and weight and will bring from $4 to $5 each, she estimates. Feed has cost about ?250. Help has cost about J200. Figuring all expenses, Mrs. Layton believes she will gain between $1500 and 51700 on the sale of the birds.

She finds herself in excellent health and with jaded nerves restored to steadiness. "Now I feel fit for a whiter of ac tivity in the city," she says. "Next summer I hope to go into the turkey raising business more extensively.!' The remarkable thing about Mrs. Laytons turkey venture is the large proportion of the young turkeys, brought to maturity, This is attributed mostly to the close supervision and • care which farmwives, with other tasks, ordinarily cannot give.
