It is the general rule that fowls lay
more eggs in the pullet year than at
any time thereafter. ,
At what age should pullets begin
laying? It is commonly acknowl-
eagea mat Leghorn pullets on the
average will begin laying at the ae
of 5 to. Sy months, Wyandotte and
Knocie island Keds at 6 to &J4
months and Plymouth Rocks around
months. Of course, there are ex
ceptions where better records of
early laying are made. Much de
pends upon the care and attention
given therp during the months of
growth nk development. If prop
erly fed and housed, they should be

von i crowd them. Crowding is a
very common mistake. Better to
allow more than enough space than
too little. Four square feet per bird
, is the least I would figure on. When
you get below that you are at the
danger point. ,
Do not permit sleeping on the
floor, particularly .on cold, frosty
nights. Young stock housed with
old stock will be less liable to take
- to roosting, as they are shy in the
presence of older birds. By all
means house the young stock separ
ately. Be sure .that the litter is dry and
that it is changed at the first sign
of dampness. ' Feed scfatch feed in
a deep litter that is always fresh and
clean, allowing about a quart per
dozen birds Keep a good dry mash
feed that contains the full 10 per cent
of animal protein either in the form
of meat scraps, fish scraps, dried
milk or'dried buttermilk, before the
birds all the time. Secure a . dry
mash hopper for this purpose from
your local poultry supply dealer and
you will save its cost many, times
over in the avoidance of feed waste.
Fowls require plenty of green food
at this season.
At this time of the year look out
for colds in the flock. You can eas
ily locate this condition as the first
sigrtt are very, noticeable sneefing,
sticky or watery discharge from the
"eyes and nostrils or bubbles in the
corners of the eyes. When evidence
of this kind "appears remove the bird
or birds thus affected at once, keep
them separate from the rest of the
flock and disinfect the poultry house
frequently and thoroughly. There
are a number of reliable cold reme
dies on the market which will relieve
this condition if quick action is
taken. ' v :' ,:

The second of the three big essen

is a greater satisfaction in providing

fowls in clean, wholesome quarters,
well ventilated and dry, wit'.i plenty
of fresh air and sunshine and space
enough for comfort, is the Impor
tant factor and this can be done
whether or not the house itself is
beautiful to look upon. A piano box,
oW shed or barn, if properly, ar
ranged, will fill the bitS in this re
spect: a good coat or two of paint
and outward appearances will not be
so bad at that.
Local conditions should control
your decision as to the best site for
the "houite. It is advisable, however,
to face it south or southeast, as this
insures the greatest amount of sun
1 ght during the winter. There are
times when exceptions to this rule
must be made owing to surrounding
influences and slope of land and con
ditio of soil, etc. The ground upon
whin the house is located should
have good drainage so that the floor
and runway will be dry and free
from dampness. It would be a mis
take to build the house in a hollow
where cold air settles, as dampness
will be Vure to result -and dampness
will imperil the health of the strong
est and most vigorous flock.
Bear in mir.d this question of
house location. It is extremely im
portant and much depends upon
your own good judgment. When you
come right down to. it, poultry rais
ing is as much a matter of common
sense as is law. Make sure you arc
right at the very beginning and you
will save yourself much needless
worry and trouble. Where ground
space is limited, the houstnay be

to allow of a runway underneath. It

Types; of Houses. -
v There are various types of poul
try houses, which though entirely
dmerent, seem to give equally good
results. The open front house, how
ever, is perhaps the most generally
used "of all. In later issues I will
discuss some of the different plans
of house construction in detail.

Whaf Omaha Offers s
By PAUL GREER
It is only around a poker tabje that all friend
ship ceases.' In business life friendship, plays a
most important part. i.
"All other things being equal, people will trade
with their friends rather than with strangers or
people who have no interest in them," says William
Stull, who has built success for himsef on that prin
ciple.. It is his firm belief that the more Omaha
does for its neighbors in Nebraska, the better it will
With that in mind he has urged greater effort
on the part of the business interests- of the city to
.push the project for a ship canal from the Great
Lakes to tne s6a as a development that will benefit
every part of the middle west. Butter, eggs, grair
and all the various products that Nebraska and'iti?
neighbors have for export to Europe can then be
sent at lower freight rates, the car shortage will
cease to menace, and European products can be
brought in return right to our doors.
He is not alone in his advocacy of this practical
measure, nor is he alone in urging careful attention
to the need of maintaining fnendy relations in our
own household. Tho question of housing is a press-
ing one. Without sufficient low-priced shelter
Omaha cannot attract new supplies of labor to man
its growing industries. '
Omaha is thinking of all these things, but there
is an old saying, "Don't sit down and think xit over;
let's stand up and knock it over."
It's all right to blow your own horn, but you
must be able to produce the goods to back up the
noise. That's Omaha, all overi It is spreading its
market territory in all directions through its com
bination of friendship and substantial values. The
recent automobile, trade trip of the Chamber of
Commerce took a large delegation of Omaha busi
ness men into southwest Iowa and northwest Mis
souri. Those are districts just as near Kansas' City
as they are near 'Omaha. It is in places like thesr
that friendship counts. .
Omaha can give , at least just as good service,
and just as low prices as Kansas City, and these
things being equal, the people there will trade with
whichever place gets nearest their hearts.
' The enthusiastic reception given the trade tour
ists in such placs as Malvern and Banchard and
Maryville showed that the friendly overtures of
Omaha were goinfe to be met .halfway.
One thinks of Nebraska as the natural market
of Omaha goods, and yet Robert L. Trimble, presi
dent of the Chamber of Commerce, said that this
trade trip into Iowa and. Missouri. was one of the
most successful that had ever been conducted. J
There is a double value in these excursions.
Not only is the name of Omaha and its willingness
to accommodate advertised, but the business men
learn from first hand the peculiar needs and desires
of their outside customers. ;Next summer there will
"be more of these adventures in getting acquainted,'
to the mutual prolt,of Omaha and its customers,
t 7 ., .
Omaha is a good town. It has something to
advertise. Out on that trip one of the country mer
chants who greeted the tourists told a story to illus
trate the spirit that drives this city on to success
A liewcomer to heaven was amazed, so the story
goesf, to see a large iron cage in which several other J
new arrivals were confined. v ,
"What is this," he inquired, "do you have crim -inals
"Oh, no," was the, explanation, "those are peo
ple that have just cgjne froni Omaha, and they are
determined to go back." s ' . x
That's the kind of a place Omaha is striving
to be. x ; . . ,
The people who live here and work here must
have reason, to feel a real attachment, to Omaha.
The customers from outside the city the cattle
shippers, the grain growers, the. merchants and
shoppers who do business here must be made to
feel that they ar6 among friends, and that the serv
ice and goods they ge are as good or better than they
could find by going somewhere else.
For, alk other things being equal, people will trade
with their friends.
