In one of the letters was enclosed a clipping stating: that "he was a lonesome soldier Who doesn't get much mail, and that he thought by appealing to the editor someone might write him" Included in some of the letters was money, and inquiries as to his favorite brand of cigarettes.

Brown. He points 'but that many hens, particularly the heavier breeds, stop laying during the hot summer months and go Into a molt. Bui they continue to^eat around 8 or 7 pounds of feed a month just the same. Prices for old .hens are generally good right now. It is a good management plan to quit the abwer portion of the (birds from the poultry flock every two or three weeks—at least every month, he suggests. Feathers about the ward or laying house are an indication that the flock needs culling. Hens which are shedding their feathers about the. .neck, wings or tall can well be sent to market. The presence of yellow pigment or coloring in the beak or legs Is an excellent indication-that the hen Is taking a .vacation; dry combs are additional proof. PREPARATION OF GARDEN FOR LATE PLAN!
