We are living under a democratic
form of government, and in the last
analysis it is the attitude of good
citizens and every other right-minded
person, which will determine wheth-

work in stamping out social diseases
is to be wasted. The work begun by
the Surgeon General of the U. H. Pub-

The question of whether we or nfit
we have good roads is no longer an

are patiently waiting.

A good deal is 'being said about
courtesy just now.
Railroads, hotels, large stores and
business institutions generally, where
employes form the only point of con-
tact with the patrons, are circulating
preachments to these 'employes.
They suggest meeting the discour-

tesy and reason—treatment by re-
verse action, as a good carpenter

PRODUCE INFERTILE EGGS.
Where the fighting was the hardest
and men In greatest jeopardy in the
great battels in France the 8alvallon
army was there to lend whatever
emergency assistance possible. They
are calling on the American people
for funds with which to extend the
tuefttlnoss of the army. One of the
principal things mow contemplated

A loss of 15,000,000 or more each
year is due to fertile eggs.
Infertile eggs are more profitable
because the losses are less.
Infertile eggs are superor to fer-

If you owned a horse for whim
you had no further use would you
continue to keep him and pay for
his feed? It is just as poor business
to continue to keep and feed the
roosters which you do not expect to
breed another year. As soon aa the
breeding season is over the day of

though the roosters -no longer per-

It will probably coat you from 10 to
15 cents a month to feed each roos-
