Even the old hen seems to realize that these are hard strenuous times for her owner, and right nobly has she laid around to do her bit to relieve the situation. During the winter of 1928-29, when times were good and prices high, the old hen did not seem to take much interest In the affairs of men, but persisted in taking her usual winter vacation, contentedly munching on 84c corn. During the first week In February, 1929, when eggs were 24c a dozen, one firm in Algona took in 470 2-3 dozen eggs, paying $112.96 for them. During the first week In February this year, when eggs were only 12c a dozen, the same firm took in 2112 dozen eggs paying $253.44 for them, and the old hen had to be satisfied with 48c corn. It seems that the old hen has come to the conclusion that it is up to her to keep the ball rolling and is just showing what she really can do in time of need. Hurrah, for the old hen.—Contributed. 19 ENSEMBLES So many, many new ideas to captivate you. You'll want at least two and you'll discover them moderately priced.
