Possibly the most cheerless iul'orma

The leading turkey states of the union
In 1M0 were Texas with B4S.671, Missouri
with 4rn,titw, Illinois with 446,ft. und Iowa
with 424,.'XHi turkeys. Hut ten years later,
in 1&10, Texas had 2!.0u3 fewer of tiie
great American table bird: Missouri,
155.090; Illinois, ZCti.OW, und Iowa, 300.145
less. Here are tho four leading sources
of turkey supply In the United States,
whose aggregate output of turkeys In lflO
was nearly 1.000,00b birds less than it was
ten years ugo. .
The Ohio turkey crop dropped off 200,200
birds; the Kansus crop liO.WT; and thus
continues the doleful story until you get
down to Hhode Island, where the popula
tion has Increased 24 per cent and the
turkeys have decreased 015 per cent; and
where there are 50si persons to the
square mile and only 1,109 turkeys lu the
whole state.
In only four states did the turkey really
and truly Increase his tribe. That was
in Idaho, whore the Increase was from
10,211 to 14,274; In Wyoming, where the
gain in ten years aggregated 2:119; Mon
tana, where the Increase wus from 12.ICT
to W.475, and North Dakota, where SS.D73
turkeys lu ) have grown into (J1.475 by
Disease and Hate Sheets.
Why did the turkey Increase In ihe.e
four states, while his numbers fell off
from CO to CO per cent In even' other slate
of the union? The rate uliin t i,

His Two Appendixes.
The trouble with tho turkey Is his ap

fowls have two of these bothersome in

turkeys. It makes, first tiling, for his
turkeyship's two appendixes, enlarges
and, then chokes them up, mottles the
livor and works so much general distress
that the plagued and weakened bird lies
down and dies. This disease is called
enterobepatitis, but it is known and
dreaded wherever they raise turkeys hs
"blackhead," becausv frequently, at one
stage of the dlneae, the heud of the

and the homes of school children In
Omaha are athrill with preparations for
the annual exorcises and festivities, to
which, this year, a new and novel In

custom, established when the school sys

tho children of the well-to-do to bring
donutlons of food, clothing or money to
their school buildings for dixtrlbution
among the various chirltahln liiftltutlons.
-This year a certain percentage of the
donations will bo kept In stock by the
principals of the sohooln and used during
the winter to ullevlste the suffering or
provide for tho wants of the needy pupils.
It Is an attempt to put Into practice the
old adage that "charity begins at home,"
and It haa met with the unhesitating

men and women devoting their time find
energies to charitable work.
A certain percentage of donations will
ho kept only In the schools where It Is
known they can be used to advantage and
where they will helti those who would
not otherwise receive assistance. The
educators and philanthropists are agreed
that the 600 teachers of the city have the
most accurate Information regarding the
wants and needs of the U1.000 pupils who
constitute the training army of citizen
ship. And so In this belief they have
nunvtloned the plan to heap clothing,
food or fuel out of the donations and will
leave the teacher free of restraint In the
dltitrlbutlon of these during the year.
This custom of keeping allvo the oHr

when formal thankfulness for the bless
