f'J/S> TO TUVRn Sttt's C«m*pvAdcrtift, M'Caskm-BLEVINS NEWS-Tokio •mMMIM>«*B^M*H jiiii'riiii'iiiijj^^ Blevins Turkeys Ready For Market Approximately 1500 Head to Be Sold for Chri.t- # mas Trade Thw Yeak- There are several farmers In the Blevins community who for the past several years have gone into the turkey growing industry as a side line to their regular farm duties. Each one of them has been more or less successful, some of course more so than others. One or two ol them hove gradually increased their number of birds each year, learning as they did so, more about the hatching breeding, and care of the young poults, until their losses at this time tire comparatively small and their profits from this source is naturally •more than when they were beginners in the business. At this lime there is, in this com- "munity, approximately 1500 turkeys that will b% marketed for the Christmas trade within the next 10 dnys. •Practically every one of this number arc receiving all the fattening mash they will eat in order to bring the •highest price on the market when they reach it before Christmas. A large number of these birds will be marketed locally, some will be trucked or expressed to towns in Arkansas, while most o£ them will be shipped to the larger markets. Turkeys in this section are marketed by M. L. Nelson & Co., a firm that buys turkeys, chickens and eggs the year round. This firm, no doubt, has shipped more poultry than any firm in the state.

On December 5th she finished a year of .continuous laying, .producing in that time 3l9 eggs. This .probably is not a world or.-state egg laying record, but it is a record of -which any poultry owner should .feel proud. This hen produced 26 and 7-12 dozen eggs in a .year. Think how valuable she is. and how much a flock .of. hens, .with even a smaller production record, would be worth .to the average farmer, provided he gave the hens the attention they would require. It takes good feed and god care to fill the egg basket. If this is given a bird iwith.good' breeding will pay well ,for its keep. There 'is .not another living thing on :the farm ithat will pay ; so much profit for the amount invested as-the hen. CAR OWNERS . Do. Not Mind, the :Cold When They.
