THE FALL OF TURKEY FOrlETOtD
The dire prophecy ba been banded
down from the seat of the mighty at
Waahliuttoti that ItCU will ace the end
of llio turkey tribe If the prceot rate
of deereiiao continue.
In limy there "ore nxoi.OTS turkey
In the Unlteil Hlitle. In 1010 there
were but D.OiW.TMH. n decreaae of almoit
3.000.000. In the Miiif decade chick
en Increased from 'ZlMUMl to 2M,
The whole truth In a turkey tag
ihell I that the United State depart
ment of agriculture hn neglected tur
key culture, aud the itate experiment
atntlon bare done little to conterre
tho turkey, wltb the exception of
Jthode Island, which baa done more to
bolp turkey breeder than Waahlngtoo
and nil the otbvr stale taken togeth
er. It ba been all chicken nml egg.
l!ren the quack bare received more
attention than tho Juicy, money mak
loir turkey, and tho farmer without
reliable Information ba gone on and
lobrrd and III fed hi turkey to death.
met that today tbe United Btate I

Now Wnahlngton turn her conacr

why not get out xotne practical turkey
data for the turkey raiser And. oh.

Home time nml state appropriation on

poultry lecturer to qualify on turkey

Cost of Brick vs. Cost of Frame
Some people think that "Brick is too expensive."
This i a great mlBtnkc.
The price of lumber haa advanced until a house can
be built with 8 inch solid brick walls for only a slight
extra cost over frame.
Not over C per cent, to 8 per cent, and In many
cases at the same price as frame.
The difference Is soon wasted by painting and ex
cessive repairs and cost of heating on a frame house.
Also, the cost of insurance is greatly lowered.
In a short time a brick house has cost less than
wood. We have tho figures and can prove it.
However much the relative cost of Brick and Wood
may vary in different localities, the first cost and main
tenance of a wooden house soon exceeds the first cost
and maintenance of a Brick House.
When You Build Use Brick
