As tho poultry season arrives it is
worth noting that bundling a lot of
chickens In a gunny sack nnd hauling
thorn over a rough rood In tho bottom
of a wngon box Is not oxactly' a hu
mano wny to treat dumb animals. Yet
this Is very common. This paper will
koop calling attention to this kind of
careless brutality, and to tho wny
poultry is shlppodi In full boxes, closoly
packod in and half dead on nrrlval, to
say nothing of boing starvod for food
nnd drink. If nil pooplo understood
thoso cruoltlcs thoro would bo a great
