Fire permits have been issued in
Benton to date to the number of
about , 40. According to law, the
person securing ihe permit must
give ten day's notice or his deter
mination to fire on a certain date.

which the holder may start fires.
Sometimes conditions arise that
forbid starting the fire at the time
specified a bad wind, for instance,
may render it too dangerous to
chance starting a fire. The suppo
eition is that in a case of this kiodl
a new permit will be granted, but
this is often inconvenient for farm
ers living: at a distance and some

Foster, the Wyoming poultry
man, has made that little city
famous as a poultry center. The
following from the post. Herald
shows what his business produces
in feathers. The magnitude of
his Shipment makes' a felllow bat
his eyes. "While in Chicago
last week F. S. Foster effected a
sale of 300,000 pounds of chicken
feathers, for immediate delivery
to one o the large Chicago bed
ding houses. These feathers
which are used in making low
priced pillows will produce about
100,000 pillows. As the usual
carload, : weight for feathers is
12,000" pounds, it will require
therefore a train of 25 cars to
move this shipment from Wyom
