"Betty," he plead, "no one ever loved

But Betty had heard that before,
and It worried her not.
He did enlist In the aviation corps.
That was the next thing Betty heard
of him, and he was gone without say:

Then she grew thoughtful. Perhaps
she- had been a little unkind. She
really hadn't Intended to go so far.
She had only meant to tease him a

he came.

she had really been in love with Jerry

Then her mind being serious for the

think earnestly of the -war and of what
she could do, to help. She went in for
Red Cross work for a while, and work worked

But there were others who could do
her work and she wasn't satisfied. She
wanted something distinctive.

Then one day she read how carrier
pigeons were needed in France, and
how difficult it was to get people to
train them. And instantly she decided
that that was her work.

his wife for company, and started ont
with twelve birds.
It was Interesting work and kept her
busy. She would take the birds a
short distance away from the farm at
first, In her motor car, and let them fly
back. Then gradually she increased
the distance, letting the' birds fly alone.
At last it got impossible for her to
take them herself, as the distance grew
greater, and she would ship them to
friends In different cities to release.
They came back unfailingly, always
with their little brass tubes containing
a friendly note. White Wing was the
swiftest of them all. Betty was very
proud of him.
One day she sent a message to her herself,

so lonely all week, and the solitude of
the country gave her plenty of time to

So Betty went, but she took her

the poultry raisers of Marion county,
and that is, that there is a great
shortage of poultry all over this
country and the United States de
partment of agriculture is urging the
county and home demonstration
agents to encourage the farmers to
raise more poultry.
I therefore sarnestly ask all our
farmers to give the poultry more con consideration
sideration consideration for the coming season
than ever before: We are now at the
beginning of tha hatching season in
this section; in fact, many eggs are
being incubated at the present time
by wide-awake poultry breeders and
every one who wants to make money
should get his incubator ready and
have everything in readiness to be begin
gin begin hatching in the very near future.
You will find the early hatched pul pullets

egg production.
