Hugh Shepherd is some Chicken Chaser a live newspaper in a live town Postville Iowa thursday september 31926 number 47 Hugh Shepherd who chases the mail in Postville Between the Postof fice and the Milwaukee and Rock Island railway stations hands us a very interesting bit of news this week concerning the number of baby Chicks he has handled this year that have come his Way via parcel Post. The figures Are a bit staggering but they Are nevertheless authentic and prove As nothing else could the enormous proportions to which the baby Chick Industry has grown since the world told the old barnyard Bird to keep right on tackling and laying eggs and we d raise baby Chicks for her by the warmth of electric current attached to a wooden Hen. Or. Shepherd informs us that from March 10 to september 14 of this Al us year there passed thru his hands by parcel Post 125,000 baby Chicks As against Only li7,000 during the same period last season. This shows the Industry is growing by leaps and Bounds As the poultry business is now recognized As one of the big assets farms. Aside from these shipments Many thousands of Chicks from the local hatchery went out to Crow and cackle on farms within a radius of 25 Miles of Postville the Farmers coming in by Auto for them after they had been custom hatched. Until a few years ago the shipment of Day old Chicks by parcel Post would have been considered a very Idle dream for it would have seemed beyond the Pale of reason that Many if any could Reaich their destination alive a. However or Shepherd tells us that of the Many thousands he handles annually the is practically nil. And that the Chicks Are shipped All Over the United states is evidenced by the fact that he recalls shipments to Texas new York Maine the Dakotas Nebraska Wyoming Montana new Mexico As Well As the closer surrounding states. And Postville is Only one Little shipping and Transfer Point. How Many millions of them must there be the country Over on our smile of the Harvest Moon a former big four cow tester Calls the Herald was pleased to receive a Call on tuesday from a. A.

Altho located in a wild rather Inacone Stablo spot the Home is a Beautiful one fitted with most modern conveniences and a trip there is a never forgotten experience. The fact that the Louisville club took such a decided Lead in the american association Pennant race during the past week might be placed upon the shoulders of three players As far As hitting is concerned. Ellis Quiyon and Pittenger arc the three players who have virtually batted the colonels into the Pennant during the past week. Ellis is probably the most responsible of All of the Louisville Clouter. During the past week Ellis has batted himself into the select class of swats Man having brought his average up 18 Points and being responsible for i iving in 1-1 runs.
