A t the office he put the paper in his desk drawer. But at lunch time he took it out again and read it in the little restaurant around the corner while he waited for his order. The good chicken pie the waitress brought him might just as w e ll have been corned beef hush, for all John cared. He swallowed a few hurried mouthfuls and then went buck to the office lo reckon up his hank account. “ W e ll, I guess that idea is ex­ ploded,** he sighed, tossing his bank book hack into the drawer.

Perhaps I’d do. I was rather good on swapping when I was a boy.’’ John laughed to cover his emhmrassment. The junior partner stroked his chin.

In the old days— days not so old after all when you come to think o f It — the home was the center o f social activities, the place where all fam ily pleasures were enjoyed. And the pride o f every fam ily head was to own his hom e; to know that the abiding place lie provided fo r his loved ones was, theirs, endeared to them by pos­ session and insuring to them a shel­ ter in the event o f untoward circum­ stance. In these days it sometimes seems that we are driftin g away from the home. L ife Is more com p lex; social and entertainment features are pro­ vided In such unlimited and varied di­ rections that w e are tempted away from the ro o f tree during most o f our hours o f recreation. Th e old-fashioned ways o f entertaining “ com p any,\ the pleasant home parties are almost fo r gotten. And with this there has come to some persons a feelin g that there are other possessions m ore desirable than a home. Th e desire fo r home owning seems to have been stifled In them. But this is but a transient phase In the lives o f a relatively few people. Th e home o wning instinct is a true one and one that Is not supplanted by any other fo r any length o f time.— Exchange. Cepitallzlng Barber Shop Talk. A ll the barbers o f Lebanon, Penn., w e re recently Invited to a smoker given by the chamber o f commerce The invitations w e re extended in the b e lief that the barbers have a continuous opportunity to give vis­ itors a favorable impression o f the city, that many barber shops are fo r ­ ums o f public discussion where municipal questions are freely argued, and that the barbers should have a true conception o f the c i t y ’s develop­ ment with an understanding o f the part taken by the chamber o f com merce in the general' progress. The In­ vitations made it plain that the sinokei was not in any way a scheme to pro­ mote the chamber’s membership or in­ fluence. The barbers got an entirely new point o f view on their oppor­ tunities fo r service to the city, and have actually made use o f these op­ portunities.— The Nation's Business. “ Co-operating\ the Sales Managers.

Post, o f Philadelphia, Pa., has com e to spend the rem a inder * p . i t time to give your flock a good culling. This will vary with different flocks, but usually comes in the middle of July, August, September, and the first part of October. The characteristics which distinguish the poor layer from the good are most evident at this time. T h e poor producer will not lay during the fall and winter months. A care­ ful culling at tliis time will reduce the feed bill but not the egg pro­ duction. ( ’tilling pullets Is based on an esti­ m ate o f the future production o f the bird. Culhng her.s Is based on her past performances. A careful culling o f your pullets Just before they start the laying sea­ son will Improve the production of your flock. The pullets that mature early, showing i.ert body development and redness of comb, should be saved. Pullets that are undersized, lacking vigor, deformed or hatched too late for winter product’#.n should be culled. Select pullets with prominent eyes, broad hack with the width well car­ ried to the tail, broad head and a deep rectangular body. T o cull a flock right each bird'must he handled. In order to save time and enable one to go through a large flock o f birds in a short while some means for catching the hens should be ar­ ranged. A coop or crate open at one end so the hens may he driven through a small door in the hen house into the coop is a good method. If the coop has an opening in the top so the birds can be lifted out, you can cull the whole flock with little disturbance and quickly. M o lting Is one important point to consider. When a hen molts she has finished her laying season. The early molters, that is, the hen that molts In July, August and September. Is a poor producer.— Phil H. Hayes, Exten­ sion I'oultrym an, Oklahoma A. and M. College. Only Quality Eggs Get High Prices in Summer E 'g markets o f the country are over­ loaded at this season o f the year, and thus eggs are sold on a quality basis and not simply as eggs. And because eggs are not “ Just eggs\ these days, and because quality eggs are the only ones that get the prices, the wise poultryman takes every step to put a super egg on the market. Quality eggs are produced by taking the mule birds out o f the pens as soon as breeding is over and being very par­ ticular to keep broody hens off the nesls, for a “ setting\ hen can start the process of incubation after a few hours. R. E. Cray, assistant poultry special­ ist at the N e w Jersey State college, suggests also that eggs be gathered tw ice a day and kept In a cool, dry, clean place. Eggs should be shipped often and in clean, dry cases with good fillers. A moldy filler will spoil the quality o f the entire case of eggs. H e further adds: Keep the nests dry and clean, as washed eggs w ill not keep very long In warm weather. Cover the eggs up when on the way to the station and keep them out o f the sun at all times. Be sure to grade more carefully dur­ ing this season if you would get high prices. LIFE ON LAKE KEUKA. A fte r many weeks o f silence, once more w e greet you from the H e r­ m it’s Hut.
