Some Chicken Business.
'! Mr. <Ira Roberta, a popular -al«i
man in this city, docs quit* a little
business on the Mile, in the way of
keeping a few line chicken*. He this
year had 25 Plymouth Rock hena and
ha* sold all hi', eggs at $1.00 for 15.

sold from his 25 hens more than 2000
e- • . anil practically all «f them
were bought by people v.ho live here
at Mount Airy. In addition to thi
he ha raised a large numl*r of young
