Laboratory tests have shown that citrus acid as contained in oranges is one of the best means of controlling coccidiosis in chicks. Our mash contains dehydrated oranges together with 18 other ingredients essential to a perfectly balanced ration. Among these are iodine, phosphates, iron, dried milk, calcium yeast and cod liver oil. Don't be content with anything less than a complete ration. Try this perfectly balanced feed.

This store is in the country, across from the Lotts Creek creamery, and everything is sold from a shoestring to a baby huggy. Nick and his wife operate the store, and they are kept busy with a continuous trade. In spare time Nick built a slack coal-burner for home and store The stoker holds 4 bushels of small slack coal which is automatically stoked into the furnace. No smoke or gas can enter into the house. The burner is operated by a quarter-horse motor which runs some six hours a day and turns a fan attached to an old Iowa separator. The fan stimulates a draft, and an auger carries coal from the stoker to tho furnace burner, where a gas is formed which creates heat. Everything burns except a large clinker. Mr. Gengler burned about 12 tons of the cheapest coal this winter and cut his former coal bill by one-third. He built this burner himself, and this spring he plans to remodel it and secure a patent. Considerable time was spent on the device, and Nick has every right to be proud of it. Everything about it is entirely automatic. It keepi his home at a constant temperature of between 70 and 72 and shuts itself off automatically by electric power. The Genglers have two dark-eyed, dark-haired girls, Phyllis, 8, and Betty Anne, 2, who will some day help their parents with the trade. * * * * Lotts Creek has one of the fast- Kossuth sometime takes a good licking, we are told some of the better teams have refused to play against the boys foi fear of defeat.
