Why you should Start'em with STONEMO GRANITE • to give them "TIITH" • to develop healthy GIZZARDS • to build itrong DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS Hard, insoluble grit is important in helping your chicks grind their feed, develop healthy gizzards, and build itrong digestive systems capable of processing the large amounts of feed needed tor production efficiency. And where profits are important, youll find leading breeders and egg producer* insist upon Stonemo—the grit with the extra grinding surfaces to grind out more of the nutrient value from their feed. Hdw Stonomo Helps Your Bird* Stonemo works with the powerful gizzard muscles which it helps to develop, and grinds open more of the tiny cellulose "capsules" that surround important feed nutrients. Stonemo helps make these often-wasted nutrients available to the bird's system for use in.building strong bodies and producing eggs to inherited capacity. Make Stonemo—the grit with the extra grinding surfaces—a part of your feeding program. Choose from the handy 10-lb. Hopper Pak self-feeder, or 25, 50, or economy 80-lb. multiwall bags.

Victoria Lamb.of Weatmont, 111., says, "I was about to board a train when I suffered a nasty fall, straining my back so painfully that I was scarcely able to walk. 'With assistance. I managed to get on the train, wondering what I could do about the dreadful pain. Then I remembered I had a tube of Ben-Gay in my bag. I thought it waa worth a try, ana it certainly was! After an application of Ben-Gay, I made myself as" comfortable as possible. The next day, I found the pain had eaaed amazingly. I was able to walk without pain and arrived home feeling relieved and ever grateful to Ben-Gay." Thousands of people, like Miss Lamb, have found Ben-Gay to be amazingly effective in relieving the pains of muacle strain. Here's why: Ben-Gay contains up to two and a half times more of two famous pain-relieving agents than five other widely offered rub-ins! Ben- Gay acts two ways. First, extra blood is brought coursing to the painful area. Second, a pain-deadening action starts at once. The painful muscle strain starts to ease .up almost instantly. So keep Ben- Gay on hand always for fast relief from muscle aches and pains. Ben- Gay acts fast where you hurt!

WORLD FAMOUS RIITAURANTS COllICi INN ; ronrt AHOUSC THE 25O EGG HEN now a reality because of poultry breeding FLOCKS that average 250 eggs per hen a year in state contests' now are quite common. Some contest flocks have chalked up averages over 280. Individual hens sometimes hit around 340 eggs in a year's laying! These are under ideal conditions, of course. But 250-egg averages are coming up often enough to foretell that similar flock records soon will be possible on toprnanaged farms. As a matter of fact, a few farm flocks are laying close to that figure now. Farm records of 220 to 230 eggs per bird a year are not uncommon. Remarkable as these profitable figures are, they are even more striking when we remember that all hens in U.S. averaged 114 eggs per bird annually only a quarter of a century ago. And it took 2,000 to 3,000 years of breeding to improve hens from the original wild jungle bird. Poultry breeding, coupled with better feeds and improved management,. have produced today's laying miracle. And tlie breeder has had a bigger job than putting more eggs into the hen. Just as any piece of farm equipment must be built for more strain as speed increases, so must our modem hen be built to stand up under much faster laying speed than her ancestors of only a few years ago. To bring you the picture story of how this modern laying miracle is produced, we turn to DeKalb Agricultural Association, Inc., one of the large breeders of hybrid chicks. Research * work under the direction of Dr. E, E. Schnetzler has produced inbred crosses that have won the preference of thousands of fanners-and their wives. Whether you buy hybrid chicks or a straight breed, you will find it worth while to check the profit factors shown by these photos. They can easily make the difference between good egg profits and just "keeping chickens". Liv'ability ranks equally with egg production as one of the two . leading profit factors. Livability in the brooder, on range and in the laying house.are built up by "checking" test strains with rough conditions. A small group from each strain is separated for special testing. These chicks are started on contaminated litter in one of these rough treatment tests. $ i Strong shells save you money because fewer break in the nest or in handling. By testing shell strength with cracking gauges, scientists can tell which hens lay the strongest eggs. Thousands of hens are checked to pick out only the few hundred that lay strongest eggs.
