AVOID HIGH-FLAVORED FEEDS
Onions Have Been Fed in Sufficient
Quantities to Affect Eggs Color
- of Yolk Influenced.
In extreme cases the" flavor and
odor of the feed nave been imparted
to the egg. Onions have been fed in
sufficient quantity to bring about this
effecC Those who desire to 'market a
first-class article should not give feeds
of high and objectionable flavor toj
their flocks. ' "
In no case should tainted feed be
allowed to enter the ration. Feed also
hasan Influence on the color of the
yolkr according to the United - States
departmenr of agriculture. Corn fed
exclusively will give a deepTyellow or
highly colcred yolk," while wheat "fed
alone will produce a much lighter
yolk, f A fairly bigh-colored yoUc is
usually preferred and can usually be
obtained' ' by feeding a moderate
amount of corn. Plenty of green feed
also enriches the color of the yolk.
DO NOT OVERCROWD POULTRY
Few Hens In Small Yard Do Better
Than Larger Number in Same

a few hens in a small yard than from

PORMATION Is always better than
A reformation. The mended article
Is never as valuable as the original ar

In like manner, the cells of a man's
Brain, given over to foolish and un
profitable Thought are never so plastic
for useful Thought tracks again.
Everything Is Easier! and Better If

The process of Undoing works
havoc, not only upon the Character of
the one who Works or Thinks wrong

while the time spent In Undoing rep

THE JOY RIDE.
THE Joy Ride is a encw-ssfnl meth
od of killing dull care and any
thing else that gets In the Vay.
There are two kinds of joy rides
drunk: and sober. Most of the auto
mobile accidents . which are played
up on the front page every few mln
utes are due to the joy rider who is
so full of booze that he can't tell
whether he is in the road or the riv
er. Every once in a while an auto
mobile will fall Into the palsied grasp
of some driver who has become
soundly saturated up to his eye
lashes, after which he starts out to
see how fast the car will run when
it ls opened. up to the bright blue
sky.: When two Joy riders who art
in a state of death-defying alcoholism
meet each other head-on, there is a
noise like blowing up a munitions
factory, followed by the still, small
voice of the hospital Interne.
If every Joy rider could be taken
out of the front seat and tested for
alcohol before being allowed to ran
down other people, It would be safer
Two joy riders who are in a state cl
death-defying alcoholism meat each

mobile driver to drink nothing but
buttermilk for forty-eight hours be
