Finkbeiner of Saline township, who have a flock of super-excellent barred Plymouth Rock chickens, -recently siofld .a hundre! hens and pullets to the Industrial school at Adrian. The authorities in charge uf the school have • decided to try to train and interest the girls in the poultry husiness and to that end have hullr. some .line new. poultry houses and purchlased this flock of hens. Mr. and Mrs. Finkheiner delivirel the fowls in person and report with pleasure the excited dejight oi the girls at the school. Each one within reach when ihe crates were opened possessed herself of a hen and it i'. safe to say that, for ia few weeks at least, those hens will have all the attention the girls are permitted to give them. It is planned to add another hundred fowls to the Adrilan flock in the near future. Records will he kept of the achievements of these hens and thus Mi', and Mrs. Finkheiner will be able to keep informed as to the productiveness of the flock they have raised and selected with such care. The ipurehase was nte.de thi-pagh die recommendation of the Michigan Ag ticultural college and Mrs. DeJ Jenkins, a neighbor of the Finkbelners, was delegated to select the fowls from the Finkbeiner flock. The selection of thlis flock as the one from which to make this purchase wUs deserved reward for the care and pains taken hy Mr. and Mrs. Finkbedner in the care and selection of their fowls. ' A. C. Foreman, •poultry specialist of M. A. C, has severa' limes culled the flock and from time to time thoroughbred cocks have been purchased, thus developing a strain f/f layers known as one of the best in the county. ADVANTAGES OF RURAL LIFE There are very few advantages o.' the city that cannot be brought to the ruralist, but the basic fundamental advantages of free life iu God's open country can never be transplanted into the city except to a very limHted degree. For every advantage of the city, there are corresponding advantages for the country. For every disadvantage of the farm, there are innumerable drawbacks to urban existanee. The city worker gets more money than the farm laborer. He likewise spends more. The city man work; fewer hours than the ruralist—but he consumes more time in going tj and from his work. The farmer lives out among the hills and meadows—the city man exists in the crowded flesh-pots. The farmer gets his rent either free or at cost—the oity mian pavs a. fee large enough to cover the profiteering of both property owner and rental agent The farmer may have a crop failure on account of weather conditions —but the city chap often loses h:s job without even a cloud or wea.ther report to warn him of the impending danger and frequently the industrial employer is more uncertain and erratic than the providential control or the elements! The farmer may obtain his food direct from the soil. In the case of the city dweller, the simple act of food distribution is infinitely more comiplex and expensive than the bas- ic process of production itself. Life in the country fortells indlvid ualtsm. The urbanite is merely a cog in the wheel. The cjity man Is only one of th • masses—the farmer is received b/ his fellow-farmers on his merits a-' a man. Country life niiakes for physical and moral strength—the city is ih." graveyard of our national physique. In the final analysis the farmer has the upper hand. Agriculture i; the most suitable of all industries, Wars may devastate, panics may bankrupt, markets mlay become stagnant, but the farmer continues to live more or less as usual.—The Commonwealth. *T>f°%i JTHEiAMERICAH RED CKm»js5» IN-PEACETIME Health Promotion ids!!' fc^T Health is at the foundation of human happiness.

A representative of the company had. taken up with the auditor general the matter of their eligibility fo v membership in the Elevator Exchange and the decision, clear and unmistakable, was that the compan;., as at -present incorporated, under an act making them a straight stock company', could not join the Exchange. Robert Wiley, promoter ,of the Elevator Exchange, was present at this meeting and expressed his regret that the company could not at once come into the Exchange, both because tho Exchange wanted them and because of the henefit he believed such a federation would bring to the Saline company. Hs assured them that the necessary change in # organization might be made without great confusion—that they would find themselves doing business after the changs just a-; before, hardly 'knowing that it hid been made, except for the advantagrs ir. would bring. .
