I Crystal Dairy Ltd. THE HOUSING OF POULTRY These are the days when the more study is allied to practice the greater I the- success. In food production, as j in all other things, this is eminently i true. Uook-learning is no longer an ' j object of sneering by tho man of prac-l j tu-al experience, lie has been farced I to the conclusion that an earnest study j | o: books, pamphlets and bulletins is a ; I tremendous help to the beginner and j often of tho greatest value to himself. \ ,In by-gone times poultry-keeping was' 1 of a haphazard nature. If the1 i lions were healthy and laid In myster-, j ious plates all was well. If they! ' didn't the true cautte was rarely dis- ! | covered and the fowl, having seeming-1 Jy failed of their usefulness, were , ! Eiimmarily dispatched. Today much ! ' of this Is changed and poultry-keeping table, it age after threshing may be used to ' advantage :n wintering ranch stock. It is believed by many that large areas of the principal Timothy seed meadows of the United States were put under the plow last fall, and that in place of Timothy a large demand will be made for tho production of i corn and grain crops. With a large j proportion of this production given over to the growing of grains and j corn, it is reasonable to expect a large demand for Alberta Timothy teed from both the Vnited States and Eastern Canadian Markets.

WRITE FOR DATES WARNER, ALBERTA LETHBRIOGE has become a systematic pursuit per-1 milting of research and subject to ex- j perlmont, the same as any other i branch of agricultural industry. A' better aid to the very foundation of j poultry-keeping could hardly be desired than a bulletin recently issued by the Dominion Department of Agricul- j ture and entitled "The Principles of i Poultry House Construction with General and Detailed Plans."

Husbandman, is tho author and in the 55 pages of which this publication consists he has succinctly told, with abundant illustration, how poultry can best be housed and what is nee'ded in that, re-spect to make the birds good producers. There is little in the science of tlie proper housing of poultry that is not hero set forth, from comparatively palatial structures and model runways to tho modest arrangement of occupants of villas and bungalowa and dwellers on the outskirts of towns and cities. Ucsldes plans of desirable structure, details of the material required ami Die dimensions ure all given.
