On every other day since April ! 4, 1921, she has laid an egg. i That is some record and the rea- son for claiming this hen to be the greatest layer in the world. She is two years old and of the McFarland i strain. She is an ambitious hen with a wonderful appetite. She has not taken time off from laying eggs to moult since 1920, and as a result her feathers appear worn in spots. This famous biddy has been kept in a portable coop 6 by 14 feet in size, with wheels en one end so that it may be moved around on fresh ground each day. The coop is equipped with a trap nest ami a roost in one end. The roof and the front end are on hinges so that it can be opened in warm weather. Feed for this hen consists of bran, higera rolled oats, laying, mash with some green feed each day, fine ground oyster shell and grit, and she has a dust box with some sulphur in it. She has two full sisters that are making a good race with her for the greatest layer record, but they both stopped last fall to moult.

Moreover it is on of the famous Sam-Vlel French $23 royalty plays. That is, that much royalty must be paid before permission can be secured to stage it. This production is seldom attempted by high schools, nor, in fact by other amateurs. It is now being played by stock companies in many of the large cities and is proving decidedly popular wherever presented. "Nothing, But the Truth" is a three-act comedy built around this expression, "Could you tell the truth, the A Wise Chicken. Tn a wet side school the pupils of the eichth grade were studying about the different Presidents of the United States. They had just finished Jefferson's administration, and Miss D the teacher, asked: "President Jefferson was known as what?" Harry was quick with the answer. "He was known as the Sage of the Age." Before the teacher could ask another question, a hand shot up and a small boy asked: "Miss D.. what does sage mean?- Harry was permitted to answer this one, too, and he said: "Sage means wise." Whereupon the small boy asked: "Well, what's a sage hen. Miss D?" Before she could explain, she was Samples mailed on request. 9e EE Special .v per yaro , . THE R. L. LEESON CO.
