The HnmiUoiiH have also built and arc occupying a now Incubator 'building of Hits latest design. The building Is 30 by 42, with double brick walls. Tho walls havo air spaces between Inner and outer brick, and the whole IH lined with cellotex to furnish additional insulation so temperature will be kept uniform. Tho incubators are electrically operated, and they also havo steam connections, so that If the electric current falls tho steam heating plant can be used. One of the features of the new Miilding Is that air from the incubator goes up and out of the bulld- ng through a special type of ventl- 'ato. Old-style Incubators exhauet the air from tho machine Into tho ncubator room. Mr. Hamilton said that when the chicks start hatching there will be about eight quarts of down and dust thrown off each day from the large machines. Accordingly It was important to have it deposited outside rather than In the air of the Incubator room. Mrs. Hamilton has been appointed as qualified expert inspector for the Iowa Poultry Improvement association. Iowa accredits tho flocks that provide eggs for the hatchery. Among these are the Carl Paetz flock of White Rocks, !L. C. Cast's Barred Rocks, J. "V/. Dorrance's "White Wy- andottes, Ernest Moeller's Buff Leghorns, Frederick Moeller's Brown Leghorns, C. R. Bailey's Buff Rocks, Lewis McWhorter's Buff Orping- tons, and 'Harry (Bode's R. I. Reds, Arnold Grey's and Frank Cabling's White Leghorns. The Hamiltons also have nearly 2,000 White 'Leghorn hens of their own' on the farm. Altogether 52 flocks furnish eggs for the hatchery.

Person farm, two miles west and 1% milea north of Burt, and found that P. !L. had recently suffered a painful accident while he was trimming timber out of a tree. He fell and cracked a bone In one heel, and the fracture has caused great pain. He said he was wearing the second cast on his foot, but he is now out and looks after his work, though he has a new way to get around. He puts his knee on a chair, then takes hold of the back of the chair, and walks about In that way, which he says, is better than using crutches. We went to the barn, where his son was shoeing a horse, and Mr. Person was telling him how.
