FASTER GAINS WITH LESS FEED on CONCRETE FEEDING FLOORS Feeding floors made with clean, long-lasting concrete will help you raise more pork for war needs. They save pigs by keeping them cleaner and healthier —save feed otherwise trampled in the mud—insure faster gains, more pork per bushel of feed. Long-lasting concrete improvements cost little to build—need few if any "critical materials." You'll find valuable suggestions in free booklet, "Permanent Farm Construction." Paste coupon on penny postal for your copy. You can do the job, or ask your cement dealer for names of concrete contractors.

Friend*? attehifcd.' wt» West Bend News The Old White 1 Ho rse When a boy our folks lived on a farm. Right across the road was a neighbor named Raferty. I used to help him with his chores and for my pay I was to have the first colt from a certain white mare. Later on I learned this animal was a gelding and of course never had a colt. When a young man I headed west on my own account and found this old world was full of deals where the old white horse never had a colt. Tommie Ryan and I started a colored minstrel show—looking for easy money. Well, we got as far as Lilly, Mo., and had to walk back. Another white norse that never had a colt. So back to clerking. Still looking for easy money I put the first money I earned into mining stock which turned out to be a white horse without a colt. Next money I earned into a shoe shop only to find out later that it was mortgaged for all it was worth. Another white horse—no colt. I got stuck on a pretty girl. After spending two months' wages feeding her and buggy riding I popped the question. The answer was no— another white horse. Then I made a visit to the old home and was very much surprised to find how much father had learned while I was away. This time I took his advice and started out again. I got a good job and in three years started for myself. Since then all the white horses have colts. I worked hard and had a nice business. Three or four of the girls out there wanted to marry me. I did marry one of them and she is still with me. Now in the sunset of life I am still selling shoes. Good standard shoes cheaper than any store in the state of Iowa. You get the regular $4.00 shoes for $3.00 at Neville's and the $5.00 shoes for $3.59. Boys, I have found out there is no easy money, you have to work for it. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN • Pvt.
