Their prices are always the best that can be obtained in any market, and''they are so close at hand' that'.it'--does not necessitate shipping market'prices and other quotations. :• This firm has always assisted materially. in-:the, growth of the .community as a-trade center. Here the farmer is assured of the highest market price for poultry, and they therefore conduct a business that is of high commercial value to the public.

The raising of poultry is a prominent feature in farming and proves a paying sideline in all cases. Dealings with them are always courteous and accommodating — their one idea in mind is to give all their customers and friends a (satisfactory service.
