Farm Woman Gives Views On "Agents" Yes—spring is here in all Its splendor and glory—budding trees, green grass shooting skywards, robins, all kinds of birds appearing every day. The bldtlie is at her best cackling the good news around —to come and fill the buckets to overflowing with eggs.

They nr« lersons who thrive and make their 'ivlng off the (easy-going) or wcll- o-do farmer and the poorer classes is well. When you see them drive in tho 'arm yard with their story or tnny- )e just their "line" It makes you feel MS though you would n?ed n spring tonic of some sort. Did It ever occur to you farmers and farm wives just how much >roflt they make? They must support a family and keep a fine home, vcar fine clothes, buy gas for thr>ir cnr and the upkeep of the same who pays for it?

The latest means of putting their goods over Is to offer to buy sick chickens If they are not too sick. Once they get you to the chicken house they won't leave until mi order in placed nnd they have taken some of the best chickens. Farmers should try and hi- mon firm in their convictions and all agents. One standby is to have- no money and stick to it, refuse to give chickens or eggs. You can get rid of them mum quicker in this manner. The bored to death with agents telling him how to feed and raise his .stock.
