Jurenile Poultry Raisers
As time goes on It becomes more
nece&sary to give our boys and girls
practical education. Agricultural col-
lerea are springing up in every state.
We are sendlnz our next generation
of farmers to these schools now to fit
them for battling with close competi
tion on all matters tnat pertain to suc
These schools of training are com
mendable, but the large per cent of
the farmers In the future will come
from the farm without the advantage
of science as developed at these
schools. It therefore stands us in
hand to make the best use cf our home
schools, the farms. Every boy and
girl likes to own something and for
tbe educational purposes along, tney
should own something. Nothing fills
th bill better than an incubator and
a Cock of poultry. It cultivates a sense
of care and business management tnat
would be lacking wnen tney were
called on to do business with, a com
peting public. It is In their time of life
that Impressions are permanent, gooa
or bad. The writer of this was a boy
once, raised on a farm; owned every
colt or rather, owned a new colt
each spring owned It until it becamo
real valuable, then he had the privil
ege of trading It for tbe youngest again
and waa educated to tmnK tne younj
colt more valuable for a ooy tnan a
colt old raoueh to brine a Rood price.
The result of this line of training and
encouragement, he landed in business
at twenty-one a regular pumpkin
head to do business. The farm had
no attractions for him, he could see
nothing in it but plow and harrow
and doine without money from crop
to crop. Am not blaming Dad, he sim
ply did not know how to educate a
bor. Had there been an agricultural
college or other school that occurred
to hira to be a good thing for a boy,
money would not have stood in tne
way. As above stated, he was not
aware that he run the best school on
earth, right at home among realities.
Of course, we would rather tne farmer
would buy his boy an incubator, bu
rather than see the boys grow up with
out Ideas of business care and man
agement, it would certainly pay to
rive them a start, even if it was noth
ing more valuable than a hen and
chicks. Boys and girls like to own
something: as soon as they are old
enough to play marbles or jump the
rope, they will want to own the mar
bles and rope at least.
In buying an Incubator for r the
young poultry raiser. It la just as im
portant that he have a good one one
large enough for busmesa and well
enough made to do the work properly
a it is that his father has a good

It too frequently happens that the women are neglected or forgotten when the
Christmas presents are selected. When you stop to think of it, isn't the woman
who has labored diligently, cared for the home and the family, entitled to some
small recognition that will convince her that you at least appreciate her efforts
and the heln and assistance she has been to you? In what is she most interested?
In all probability in her home in housekeeping. If this is true she wouM surely
be interested in "Good Housekeeping Magazine," the leading home magazine in the country. . Its aim is to assist the woman
in making the higher life of the household a practical and delightful reality. Each month she will receive it and we guarantee
that it will please her more than anything else you could buy for the same money.
