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 nenrly all In the turkey graveyard belt Now Wnahlngton turn her conacr rntlnn aenrrhtlKbt on tbe turkey rum- nanta and rommanda us to tiuntlo or there will be n turkte Thanksgiving and Christina In WV0.

And. oh. you director of farm era Institute, why not corajiel your poultry lecturer to qualify on turkey culture and thu spread reliable tur- key Information throughout the state.?

Ilannai, It 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.
