OM may remark in passinr tnat this cry ta beard Poll"»l «w»P» In the Spring a Young Matfs T A GOOD Somebody has broadcasted the information that the margin ot profit in poultry raising is growing mighty thin. In the country are many mil lion more bens than a-year and two years ago; out of this comes th. danger of the supply of poultry stufl exceeding tne demand, and tnis means the fading away of profit. It 1s true It is possible to send to market more eggs and chickens than consumers care for. but as ye we must be a long way from this point Perhaps not one family In a doxen has chicken ofteaer In the year than U Is relished; and half ot the dozen could stand chicken many more times Uurn It is served. People living in cities ,use more eggs and chickens now than a few; years ago, and they would like to enlarge this use. They are called on to pay what they consider a hajJd- ecme price, and will they reepoal. If tbe price drops, more of them can sit up to the table and get a helping. Onehae a feeling the country could use twice as much poultry as It now consumes, and then it might go on and double up again. There is almost no limit to the possible demand; the big problem Is to supply j It at a price that can. be paid. GBEEXE-B DEXOXBTRA- r/o.v.

Lyons of 759 North College street has in his possession a tattered and battle- torn flag which he cherishes above every other possession. It is the old battle flag of the One Hundred Sixteenth Dlinois Infantry, more than three-quarters of a century old, not much to see now but nevertheless the flag which the gallant regiment followed on many a bloody field. The flag was fashioned by the hands of Decatur women of that long ago, not one of whom is perhaps now living. It is marked with bullet holes and the epear head which surmounts the staff is best from the impact of a minnie ball. There is ,not much of the original" material left. Most ot tbe silk ot which It was constructed failed to withstand the ravages of time. The blue field is still intact and so are the gold stars which besprinkle it. Tbe red stripes are nearly all gone. The silk waa of flae quality but U who carried^ It In ta* ,_ at Washington. At th* fiMl ng out the flag WM (!«·· to Dr« ra Barnes until the first Is surmised that the dye wae destructive. On the e tripes originally were the names in cold letters ot the battle* In which the regiment was engaged. Then l enough left of the top stripe to carry Che name quite plainly, "Chlckaaaw Bayou." The gold fringe which bonders the flag la still in perfect condition. The flag is six feet, in length by line of observation, he eeea many things differently. l*or a long -while they called Macdonald a radical, and maybe that -was thing about Senator Frank L. Greene,'his line of talk. It a country .must who hails from Vermont. He is the man who was hit by a bullet from a gun fired by a too enthusiastic bootlec chaser in Washington. But the eenator, according to. the article, Is a most interesting man. Greene was In the house eleven years before Vermont sent him to the senate. While in tne house he always voted as hla judgment 'die- pend on to save the day for them. Thai isn't the way it is done. lfO\'OK8 COVE PRETTY HIGH. One itorr coming out of Washing- torn is that It cost the late Jake Hamoo, oil man, $105.000 to get himself named national cooimltteeatan from Oklahoma. It appears it Is an extensive ae wetl as expensive process. We have every reason to believe this «tory, tar it comes from men who helped Hainan in the enterprise find wlie remain friendly to his inero have radicals, it is fortunate to possess tie kind that are able to learn · they go along. Tlte radlcr.J to be feared is tUo one who Is also a bigot He has limitations that keep him from learn- icg. Russia had this kind. ory. They tell us that Hamon spent all this motiey and was to all the! Judgnisni--but too many states and We read tf Greene in the house voted against woman suffrage, prohibition and the bonus. It might be thought all this would destroy th* career of a statesman. We take j and TM It these "--ee thing* are about as| lution tllat popular In Vermont as In neighbor-; turncd lrk I-T states. I And Vermont's answer to Frank! Greene was to take him out of the house and eend htm to the senate. It Is an indication that it a states- -- doesn't b:lleve In i measure or a riun-ement. he need not give It his support just because they are njak- 'n* a big noise out in the lobby. M»st states are just as ready as Vermont to stand by a representative or a senator who follows h!s own There is to he a national meeting of the Izaak Walton league In Chicago April 10 to 1C; and now that we have Lake Decatur we might begin to think about applying for membership. For a few weeks tlia country has observed that wbeat is going down »p--hardly the so- anybody would have labor because ot the "honvr" of the tilstricts orations place. It looks like an awful price lu i pay for a place as oominitteeman. l«it of course this turnTM on how badly a man waros It, after which his ability'to pay hae some bearing Presumably Hamon about that time bad a lot of spare change; and he was willing to let go. In Oklahoma wer many Republicans, a majority in fact, who stood ready to Accommodate und enoo«rage him; ho j years. wanted to spend some money and they were willing to help him. He got too thing he 'went after, and i to show this. denied an opportunity A-V£ THEY ARE WORKERS. ' There is a story that General Dawes. Owen I).

Dcmpsey to to have a million dollars for ten pictures he will make In two years, and still some say that beauty is all that counts on the screem.

But there were men in the coun - try in 1920 who got a place as na- I . iion*l eonunltteeman and didn't pay ' lilg money for It.

If this Is the forthcoming report ot the commissions, the chances ore t will meet favor In Germany. A!boat anything Is better than what hose people now have--and a, breath- ng spell ot four to five years must seem like a breeze from the Promised Land. If Dawes and Young say the plan will work, there Is reason why the rest ot us should give it real consideration. There is a feature Uv« men doubtless lock into consideration; It the natural industry of the plain people of Germany. A. few years ago they were, taken as a whole, the test white workers in the World.
