No more school teaching for Mints
Arda, Edwards, of Drain, Douglas
ounty, Oregon. 6he does not deny
that there is a certain amount of in
spiration in teaching the young idea
Vow to shoot, but she admits that the
inspiration is increased ten-fold, fifty
fold, one hundred-fold, in watching
jonng turkeys put on 22-cent flesh.
A little more than two years ego
Miss Edwards, as a school teacher, received-
something like $60 a month
for nine months; today, as the cham
jion turkey raiser of the state of Ore
gon, she receives a clear income of
More than $1,100 a year. .Like Icha
fcod Crane, she is, inclined to kick
any pedagogic who dares to call her
l How.

! Many prominent physicians declare
chewing to be the most wholesome way
cf enjoying tobacco. "
"I began chewing some years aso,"
said one, "and I soon found that it is
the only w:.y to ret the benefit of all
the rich juices stored up by nature in
the tobacco leaf. I refer, of course, to
the plug form of tobacco, which is the
most natural and the cleanest form.
"Chewing pood to'acco like Spear
Head makes the salivary glands more
active, which in turn has a beneficial
eiTect on the whole system. Add to this
the sweet, mellow, delicious flavor of a
chew of Spear Head, and you have
(he highest possible degree of tobacco
"I mention Spear Head because I
have found that this brand is excep
tionally pure, being made in a fac
tory that's run strictly according to
pure-food rufes."
Spear Head is rode of sun-ripened
Parley, which is acknowledged to be
the richest, mildest, finest flavored to
bacco leaf in the world. And it is
produced by the hlest processes, which
t!rvclop the qiuli'y aid luscious flavor
of the choice Burlcy to the supreme dc
free. A chew of Spear Head has a whole

other chewing tohaccj. In 10c cuts,

Edwards says that turkey -raining has
school teaching crowded clear off the
map. -
There is not a woman teacher in
Douglas county who begins to make
as much money as she does, and only
eight men teachers make more.. By
the simple expedient of chnnging occupations-
she secured a promotion far
in excess of the pedagogical maxi
mum. It all came from adapting herself
to the industrial possibilities of her
environment. Douglas county, as
everybody knows, is the turkey, habi
tat of the Pacific northwest. Kc, when
the doctor forbade Miss Edwards to
teach school any longer, she a once
thought of turkeys. And turkey it
became, and turkey it has been with
her ever since.
In straw hat, middy and bloomers
she herds her. poripotetic wards in
summer; in gum coots and sou-wester
she wades the grass in their behalf in
the Bpring.
"I live in the farmhouse on Tainy
days," she says. "Only ia Xlay even
this blessed shelter is denied me. You
havo no idea how wet Oregon gross
and trees and skies can be till you
have hunted turkeys in April and
The hill tops are her real home. She
and the turkeys only come homo to
"roost." The wide horieon has taken
the place of blnckboarded walls. Bhe
speaks of the time before she donned
bloomers as the time "before she
graduated from Bkirts. " Dressed so,
and wandering cheerfully over the
hills, she might be taken for one of
the little maids she used to teach.
Last year she raised the largest herd
in the state. "And if you wonted a
prophecy for this year," she says, "I
am sure I could give you a glowing ac
count." Miss Kdwards tells her own story
in a chatty, personal way that indi
cotes something of the fun and vari
ety, as well us the profit of turkey
"To begin at the beginning," says
Miss Edwards, "my reason is the time
honored one doctor's orders. He said
no more school for several years. Ac
cordingly, I rented 700 acres of pas
ture land five miles from Drain and
started into the turkey business.
'The fall of 1913 I invested in 20
hens and two toms at a cost of $53. The
fall of 1914 I sold 250 turkeys, rcalir
ing $593, after all commisisons and ship
ping charges were paid, besides doubling
my original flock. In the fall of 19 IS
I sold 400 turkeys, realizing $1,101.11.
nftor nil expenses were paid. This year
I am keeping 25 hens.
"The first year was a favorable
season and I had the usual beginner's
hick. I received much good advice,
which I followed when I could. I got
the government bulletins on turkeys
and poultry diseases. I studied them
ns carefully as I ever did the nrt of
teaching and still consult them.
"My formula is-simple. Keep the
finest birds for breeding. Bo sure
thoy are healthy. Have plenty of
good range. Feed them all they need.
Then let the mother turkeys do the
rest. Their judgment is always sound,
but they ar not apt to lose their wis
completely if meddled with. Leaving
them alone was one of the hardest
lessons I had to learn.
"One duy last spring I moved an old
hen over a rail fence because she
was in such deep grasj. Next morn
ing at feeding time I found the hen
and two little, ones in the nost, while
the other 17 were still On tho outside
of the fence, sleeping under a rail.
Two wore dead and the rest of them
so chilled that half of them died.
- Another old hen used to cross the
creek two or three times a day. Her
plan certainly eliminated the weak and
timid. She chose the highest bank ov
er a nice deep pool. Uhc two or three
cleverest and strongest followed her as
soon as she flew. The others simply
wailed. If I were within hearing, I
picked them up and enrried them to
the near crossing. If I were a little
slow I was apt to find them in the wat
er. If I pulled off my shoes and stock
ings and rescued them immediately no
harm was done, ob they do not get wet
easily. But to hesitate meant that most
of them would get chilled and die.
"Turkeys are as individual as peo
ple. One doesn't have time to worry ov
er one calamity before tho next one
is on the way. They do pleasant tilings
once in a while, though. I set a hen
with 18 eggs and she hatched nineteen
turkeys and raised thorn, too.
"Once when I was away the family
was awakened in the middle of the
night by two hens flying into n tree
over the house. It was raining, too,
The next morning my sister drove them
back to their nests and left them till
I got back home, two days later. I
decided it no use wasting any more time
on those eggs as they were ready to
hatch, so I went down to catch them
and break them up. When I lifted the
first hen her nest was lull of little tur
keys just out of the shell.
"I count last year as one of the
moat successful years of my life. In
addition to giving me a substantial
financial reword it bos yielded big re
turns in health, happiness and amuse
ment. It is quite as good as comic op
"As for obstacles, they ore a good
deal like school problems little things
every day. There arc sknnks, weasels,
hogs, dogs and rain. In May when the
little turkeys were hatching it rained
19 days without Btopping. I wnrs gum
boots and lived out of doors. It is no
small task to find 500 turkeys scattered
over a Beetion of land and feed them
twice a day. I lost a good many, but
some of my neighbors who had raised
turkeys for years lost nearly all of
"I try not to be unduly pu'ffed up,
but it is generally conceded that this
hiHt year was tho rorst season in
years in Oregon for turkey raising. And
there was no grasshoppers. I'm sure
my turkeys didn't get more than a doz
en aTiioee. That was almost a enlnmitv.
1 1 fed them Dutch cheese w hen thev w ere
little, with a small onsntitv of erneked
wheat. By June 20 they were able to
hunt all their own food. I saw them ev
ery few duys and counted them, and a
little later spent the days herding them
ont cf a neighbor's grain. My goodness,
they werj; worse than a bad kid to start
a row. "However, I usuully fuss with
the men folks in tho turkey business.
Deliver me from a wrathful motherl
"In the fall 1 hauled all the apples
I could ftnd, beg or borrow. I allowed
them to- run in tho cornfield in the
fall, so I can't say exactly when I be
gan feeding them. Lost year I begnn
bringing them home September 28.
That is busy time, but uneventful.
I help wth tho killing, which I don't
core mnch for. Then I get the checks,
which I do like. January and Feb
ruary are vacation mouths. I raise
most of- ray chickens then. It is a
nuisance to try to raiBe them both at
once. J
"In March the turkeys began to
lay, and the excitement begins nil
over ngn'in. They are very clever in
hiding their nests. Last year I had
400 eggs' to turn every day. But the
first laying hens soon begin to sit,
and then- they turn them. Last year
tho first turkeys were hatched before
tho last hens were set. But we had
no second batch. Home of the hens
arc gentle, and some of them fight.
An angry turkey hen is no joke. They
bite and scratch and beat one with
their wings.
"As I nm not good for anything
else, it has been easy for me to live
out in the fields with them by tho
day. And the day often begins at 4
o'clock. But there are compensations
in having breakfast at sunrise on a
hilltop a mile from home, especially
if one gets there in time to herd a
mnrandinL' band of turkeys out of a
neijrhbor''s grain field. They travel fur
and fast. Most of them leave home when
a few days old and do not come back
until feeding time in the full, although
they usually return to the some roost
ing place for weeks."
