Great Horned Owl

This owl's hoot does mean death!-
-. America's only "tiger" is not an ani-
.'mal, but a bird. The great horned
..owl, considered by nature lovers and

iL- 'ily known as te' "tiger" among

Next Laying Test Completed

"Every one of the 96 pens for the
Fourteenth Florida Egg Laying test
are taken and several extra pens are
on the waiting lit. We usually have
a few cancellations during the last
week or two before the opening date,
so you can accept, a few pens with the
understanding that they will be used
if possible", states Superintendent
Stanton. "That is the best we can do
for this year and it looks as though
those who wish to enter with us for
the Fifteenth test had better begin to
plan on it and book their entry much
soenpr than in the past or they may
be left off the list. Interest has been
much better than ever before and it
looks as though 'the egg laying test
still has a place in the poultry world.
We are hoping to lower the average
mortality for the birds entered in
tests, as well as. those kept in flocks
at home and will continue to work
along that line. The average on the
Florida test is below that of any of
the past several years at the, present
time and is also below the average on
all tests in the U.S. and we hope to
drop still lower".

polled to do so by hunger. As a noc-
turnal second-stoy worker, few can
excel the "tiger" when poultry houses
'offer opportunities for pillaging, and
as for turkeys, and other fowl roosting
in the open, this feathered gangster
is rated an out and out murderer.

(his specialty) and. along with these
he sells other itema-i-oft drinks, to-
bacco, confectionery, etc. He claims
he uses all his meters and often pur-
chases dozens of rabbits. He stated
that he has had days when he did (75
to $80 business at his roadside stand.
A Flemish breeder for whom, I regis-
tered many rabbits, showed me a buck
for which he paid $85. He weighed
15 pounds and was'tep quality stock.
He raised but three colors: grey; steel,
black. One of his finest qualities was
"not being stingy". Some take every-
thing but give nothing in return. In
other lines he laid money on the line
the same as for the rabbits. People
travelled. miles and miles to find his
place to get his strain of Flemish.
Big fellows he fs4 for the moderate
price of $10 to $15 each. Niee sized
Juniors he sold at $2, $3, $4 each. He
had outstanding does from which
young were promised two and three
litters ahead even before they were
born. He owned and raised the finest
Flemish I ever saw, and from him I
got the finest Flemish I ever owned.
That is the very reason this particular
breeder made money. He had TOP
One Easter Sunday I sold $250
worth of six to eight weeks' old rab-
bits at my own rabbitry. I sold the
junior stock at $1 each straight. In
the layout I had FlemiEh (white, black,
steel, checkers); New Zealands (white
and red); America Blues; Havanas;
Himalayans and Silver Martens. For
mass baby rabbit sales this particular
Easter Sunday was outstanding. On
a nice Sunday it was nothing unusual
for 300 to 600 people to drop in to
see my plant.
Farmers now pay approximately
$1,500,000,000 annually for power
and power machinery but before the
World war they sold power in the
form of work animhnals for several
hundred million dollars annually.

to several of the better small stock
papers and ltard-its-5ages and hunt
up prospects that way. Look ih the
"Wqnt Ad" co0nn, often one will
find several ads'of cavies wanted.
Write in to the advertisers and get
their best quotations. If you get rea-
sonable offers, self, don't wait for the
price to poom higher. Sell ps long as
you can make a reasonable profit, but
don't sell for a loss unless you are
really forced to.
With a little initiative and fore-
thought selling cavies will prove not
to be so difficult a problem as it first
may seem. Remember, first of all, it
pays to advertise,, secondly it pays to
read advertisements. You must be
on the alert always, and never allow
yourself to neglect your business.
Cavies are a business and should be
handled as such. No business suc-
ceeds that has no form of advertising,
of some kind. Even if you do get
cavies on one' of those buy back
schiems don't depend on them as the
only outlet of your surplus stock. Any-
one dealing in cawie is not obligated
to answer to ani one firm or indi-
vidual, as some companies would have
you believe.
Anyone with cavies can help him-
self to a" great amount of sales as-
sistance by jpining the co-pg~rative
National 7,Cavv lrderation. One of
its aims is to help members dispose
of their surplus stock. It idds to your
advertisements and letterheads to have
