No Other Building on the Farm
GUIS Pays For Itself So Quickly
A Government expert says that "Gcml hog men
average about seven pigs raised to the litter. Many
do better. But the general average raised on the farm
does not exceed four pigs to the litter."
This big difference is largely in thc housing. The
question is not so much a matter of cost as the roper
design of a hog house. Many hog houses cost enough
to be good, but are entirely unfit because the sun
cannot shine into tne pens. Minsninc anu veniua
tion are absolutely necessary.
On the other hand, inexpensive houses onen
give better results than more costly ones
because of thc better design.
The design is what counts. Here s
where we can help yotl.

Editor of The Tribune:
I feel that it Is my duty to say' some
thing to the people of North Platte In
regard to tho wrong done Mr. votaw
and the injustice to my children. I
was suffering with a nervous trouble
and imagined so many thingit that were
not true. There were a great many
things said and did against Mr. Vo
taw, which of courso was an injustice
to my children. He was a good man
and loved his children nnd home. He
perhnps made mistakes as we all do
but 1 had no cause for doing what I
did, and havo certainly longed for my
liomo as I once had. I was advised
to tako my children and leave my
homo and cannot help feeling that al!
was tho means of my little girl being
taken from mo. May God and angel
girl forgivo mo is my prayer, and may
Ho also forgivo those who urged me
on and on against what they knew
was right. MRS. BERTHA VOTAW
