Not until then will you know definitely who your candidates are to be. Many Instances have occurred where men who have announced for office early in the year have changed their minds and withdrawn through failure to file their nomination papers. In other instances persons who have never announced their Intentions but who have quietly been gathering tho required number of signers on their nomination papers, walk in at the last minute and qualify for the ballot, thus creating quite a furor.

Powell) Humboldt County poultry raisers are most likely to have healthier birds that make quicker and cheaper growth if they purchase their baby chicks from reliable dealers near homo. Recently completed tests by poultry specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture show that not more than GO hours should elapse between time of hot chlng and the time the chick is fed in the farmer's brooder house. Although 60 hours may seem like plenty of time even for long distance shipment, the average chick Is about 24 hours old before it is moved from the incubator, leaving only 36 hours for transportation and handling. If a batch of chicks is delayed lii transit so that they are out of their eggs longer than 60 hours before the farmer gets them, many are likely to be dead on arrival, more will die soon after, and still more will be weak, stunted, and slower to reach egg-laying maturity. Another reason for buying chicks nearby Is that the buyer has an opportunity to know more about a local hatchery, its reputation and the quality of Its chicks, than be does about a hatchery a hundred or more miles away. Adequate Spraying Necessary This Year (By C. G. Powell) This year, because of the necessity of producing as much of the food supply as possible at home, adequate spraying of fruits is very Important. This Is especially true of small fruits. Dormant nnd pre-blossom sprays should be applied soon and are the Sanitation Important in Raising of Chicks (By C. G. Powell) Sanitation In raising of chicks is as Important as with swine. Many farms are just receiving young chicks now or securing a second batch. The first important step Is to see hat the brooder house Is thorough- y clean. Dust and dirt should be swept out Including the cracks. After sweeping, the house should be scrubbed with scalding lye water, islng 4 ounces In 10 gallons of vater and that followed by a borough spraying with a 3 to 5 ler cent solution of any good coal ar disinfectant. Potiltrymen should carefully look for any mites that may be In cracks, especially If adult. chickens have been housed In the buildings dur- Ing the last few weeks. Such houses should be sprayed two or three times In an effort to reach all the mites or mite eggs. After the cleaning, the brooder stove should be set up and started to help dry out the house. A great many farmers having electricity are finding the electric chick brooders vcJry reliable. One or two Inches of chick litter should he put on the floor. The chick guard should be put in place around the brooder and the feeders and waterers clean- id and scalded. The brooder should operate at the proper temperature for several days and the thermostat should be ihecked. William Itlggtfl!), publisher of the Whlttemore Champion, has been :alled to the colors.
