Deep Litter Can Mean More Eggs For Market Deep litter will help keep well insulated and well ventilated laying houses dry this winter, says Howard Bayles, assistant extension poultryman at Iowa State College. Not only^will there be more eggs to put in the crate, but the house need not be cleaned as frequently if the litter and droppings are kept dry. A deep litter keeps the floor dry because it develops heat as it slowly decomposes. Many poultry producers start with from four to six inches of litter. Then they add to it every two to four weeks until it is 10 to 12 inches deep. This is a satisfactory practice, Bayles says. Arty of the common types of litter will do the job, provided the laying house is properly insulated and has adequate ventilation. Ground corncobs, wood shavings, sawdust or chopped straw may be used. Leaky waterers or waterers filled so full that they run over cause much of the moisture on poultry house floors. Devise some way to collect water that the birds spill at the drinking places. Poor ventilation and overcrowding also cause damp litter. For Sale—John Deere toy tractors and wagons at $2.50 per set; tractor chains in all sizes; 700-lb.

Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for November 30, 1947 is "Ancient And Modern Necromancy, Alias Mesmerism And Hypnotism, Denounced." The golden text is "Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them salth the Lord." (Jer. 29:8,9) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary laker Eddy comprise the lesson- sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb; and he healed him, Insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed and •aid, Is not this the sou of David?" (Matt. 12:22,23) From the Christian- Science textbook is the following: "To understand all our Master's sayings as recorded in the New Testament, sayings ln- fl:Jtely Important,, his follower* must grow into that stature of manhood in Christ Jesus which enables them to interpret his spiritual meaning.
