Study Here the  indications of   a   Failing  Nervous System.  DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD.  It is surprising what hosts of people  ������re suffering us the result of an exhausted nervous system and do not  Jmow the nature of their ailment.  They cannot sleep at nights���������are  restless and fidgety in the daytime  ���������their tempers are easily irritated���������  Wttle things worry them���������they cannot  ���������oncontrate their minds.and find their  jjaemorles failing���������there are spells of  jservous headache ���������the digestion is  fttnpaired���������pains and aches of a neuralgic nature afflict them���������feelings of  discouragement and despondency  ���������ome over them at times.and they get  Sa the way of looking at the dark side  ���������f things.  If this describes your experience  you will be interested in Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food, for this great food cure  gets at the very foundation of nerv-  ������>ii8 troubles and cures in the only nat-  Kral way, by enriching the blood, revitalizing the wasted nerve cells, and  Stoilding up the sytem generally.  Mrs. J. B. Tardiff, Mariapolis, Man-,  ���������rites:- "When I began the use of  3)r. Chase's Nerve   Kp������d   my   health  was In a terribly bad condition. My  doctor tofd me that I was going into  consumption and for nearly three  years my bowels were so loose and  watery that I was continually -ltopt  weak and run down. In spite of the  many remedies used I gradually grew  worse and worse. I could scarcely  get about the house and suffered a  great deal from backache, stomach  and kidney troubles.  "Dr. Chase's Nerve Food proved to  be exactly what I heeded and by keeping up this treatment for a time I got  so strong and well that I did my own  housework and sometimes worked in  the fields without feeling any the  worse for it.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food acts-strictly in accordance with the laws of nature in creating nerve force in the  body, and you can use it. with positive  assurance that every dose is at least  of some benefit to you.

They, Are About tlie Most Daring; of  All  UnderiTater Workers ��������� Paraiy-  - ���������!������,, Sharks and Sting Ray Are  Among the Dangers Tliey Brave,  Three native divers famous for their  deep water feats came out la a pearling slpop with us ono afternoon and  gave a fine exhibition, say?/a writer  in the London Graphic. The*.bed over  which we halted was about ���������ninety feet  under the surface. Our three divers  stripped to a "pareo" apiece, and then,  ���������squatting down on the gunwale of'the  boat, >vlth their hauds.jMip.glng over  their knees, appeared to meditate.  They were "takit-.g their wind," _ the"  white steersman informed me/ -  After about five minutes of perfect  stillness they suddenly got up and  dived off the thwart. The rest of us  fidgeted up. and down the tiny deck;  talked, speculated and passed away  the time.for what seemed an,extraordinarily long period. No one, unfortunately, had brought a watch, but tbe  traders and schooner captains all agree  in saying that the Penrhyn diver can  stay under water for full three minutes. At last, one after another, the-  dark heads popped up again, and the  divers, each carrying a phell or two,  swam, back to the boat, got on board  and presented their catch to me with  the ease, grace and high bred courtesy  that are the birthright'of all Pacific Islanders. ,.,.'. ��������� ,  As a general rule, the, divers carry  baskets and fill them before coming  up. Each man opens his own catch at  once.and hunts through the shells for  pearls. Usually he does not find any.  Now and then he gets ;a smali -gray  pearl or a decent white one; or a big,  irregular "baroque" '.pearl of the "new  art" variety, and once in a month ��������� of  Sundays he Is rewarded by a large,  gleaming gem worth several hundred  pounds; for which he will j probably  get ������20 or ������30. * ���������,**��������� :���������    -:  Diving dresses are sometimes used;-  in Pcurhyn, but in such 'an*Irregular  and risky manner that they are really  more   dangerous   'than   the   ordinary  .method.

During the momh of August  last, according tp statistics published  In The Labor Gazette, there were 292  industrial accidents in Canada, resulting in 78 deaths and many cases of serious injury. Agriculture, which feels  the introduction, of machinery in many  ways, leads all the occupations with 46  accidents. Of these only 9 were fatal,  as compared with 28 fatalities in July  and 18 in August of the previous year.  But of teh other accidents of August  last 25 were classed as serious. While  agriculture leads in the number  of accidents, the railway /service  is responsible for 18 deaths���������  the greatest number of fatalities in any  one Industry. In addition to this death  list 23r employes were ^severely injured.  Railway fataliiies have come to be regarded with equanimity, as they are  the inevitable results of our economy  of time and money, and our disregard  of, human life. While.we are eager to  make one track carry the traffic of two,  while every minute of idleness in track,  in rolling stock, or in employes is  grudgingly counted, while the nerves  of men in important positions aro  strained to the endurance-' point, there  will be a continuous record of casualties. Of the fatal accidents two engineers and one fireman were killed In  collisions, and three brakemen were  killed by falling between cars.  In navigation there were eleven fatalities during August. Four men were  drowned, four were killed by explosions on steamboats, and two were killed by falls into the holds of the vessels on which tbey were employed. Two  disasters to fishing vessels resulted in  the loss of five lives.9 The building  trades made a, record of 35 accidents,  but.of these only four resulted fatally.  They were nearly all attributed to falls..  A comparatively new source of danger  is revealed by the list of accidents in  metal-working trades. Three electrical "  workers were killed by coming in contact with live wires and one by the  cave-in of a conduit, Mining claimed  five victims, and there were in addition  five cases of serious injury. The strict  enforcement of* the law requiring the  reporting of all industrial accidents,  and the monthly publication of totals  as well as the investigation of all cases  * of���������suspectea~carelFssness, irafiriifHtr  beneficial, effect in" impressing* the heedj"  of care and watchfulness on the part  of those responsible for, tlie safety; of,,  workmen in dangerous occupations.  There is no remedy for that;* disregard  of human life so frequently manifested  In the taking of unnecessary risks and  tbe neglect of simple precautions."  While needless risks are taken there  will be needless accidents occasionally.  But the record can be minimized by  careful surveillanco and the enforcement of all preventive measures that  experience has shown to be necessary.

A tew weeks ago there came to my  place two bright young men from Belgium, graduates from a university,  who had been traveling -over our state*  for nix months visiting our transportation industries. They had money aud  leisure and intended to locate here, and  they had decided that tbe fruit industry offered the greatest inducement ot  anything they had discovered in America. They criticised some of our .methods.  The^y said to me:  "One trouble is you place your stuff  In the market at any place at all,  whether it Is overloaded or not, and  then, too, you put It In a barrel. If 1  want to buy an apple, I buy two for  ft or three for 10 cents. I pay $10 a  (barrel at that rate, but I can buy the  Whole barrel at $1.75 to $2. But If you  are ataying at a hotel you don't have  any room fojr that much. You foree  'ft family to buy a barrel, and the way  they have of living In flats and all that  sort of thing you bave no place to put  them unless they are put under the  bed, and that Is not a good place to  put apples. And then If you buy a  small quantity you pay ah extravagant price."  It seems to me tbe one great business  point In our fruit market today ls the  lack of putting the fruit up properly,  that our peach package of five-eighth  or one-half bushel ls pretty large for  family consumption, therefore they are  .dumped on the stands. A member ot  the family goes and buys a quart or  two and thinks he has done his duty.  We curtail the consumption of our  fruits when we put them in a basket  ���������o large that it has to bo broken. We  may also curtail lt by using too small  m basket The question to be thought  ���������ut and planned out Is the largest possible limit we can sell our productions.  I have spoken to you about.the necessity of growing fine fruit. There Is uot  going to be any room In a little while  for the man who grows Inferior fruit  gPQRTSMENS C00D8  & GENKiiAL HARDWARE  nor for the man who packs fruit dishonestly or carelessly, says J. H. Hale  of Connecticut.  TRADK MARKS**  DKSIQN3,  0OPYRIOHT8 *������  Anjroue lending a sketch snd doscrl ptlon may  quick:? Mcnrtotn, froo, -whothor an Invention is  probably potontablo.

A foreign Investigator tells of using  alum, hydrochloric acid and caustic  potash to change the color of flowers.  Watery extracts were made of various  red, purple and lilac colored flowers-  and dilute solutions of the chemical*  mentioned added, The alum changed  the lilac to blue and the rose color to  lilac. Hydrochloric acid changed tbt  lilac and the light red to a copper red,  and In some cases the lilac was changed to green or brown. Potash transformed the roso and lilac to green or  yellow. Similar results were obtained  when cut flowers were placed ln solutions of the above or by watering wltb  tbem plants grown In pots.

OiF all the people that ever went  I west Unit expeditiou was the  most remarkable.  A small boy lu a big basket  on the back of a jolly old man, who  carried a cane in ono hand, a rifle In the  other; a black dog serving as scout,  Bkirmisher aud rear guard���������that was  the size of it. They were the survivors  of a ruined home in the uovth of Vermont and were traveling far into the  valley of the St. Lawrence, but with  no particular destination.  Midsummer had passed them In their  journey. Their clothes were covered  with dust, their faces browning in the  hot sun. It was a very small boy that  sat inside the basket and clung to the  rim, his tow head shaking as the old  man walked. He saw wonderful things  day after day looking down at the  green fields or peering into the gloomy  reaches of tlie wood, and he talked  about them.  "Uncle Eb, Is that where the swifts  are?" he would ask often, and the old  man would answer: "No; they ain't  real sassy this time o' year. They lay  round in the deep dingles every day."  Then tbe small voice would sing idly  eg prattle with an imaginary being  t&ftt had a habit of peeking over the  ���������dge of the basket pr would shout a  greeting to some bird or butterfly and  ask finally:  "Tired, Uncle Eb?"  Sometimes the old gentleman would  Bay "Not very" and keep on, looking  thoughtfully at the ground. Then,  again, he would stop and mop his bald  head witb a big red handkerchief and  -sayv-^a���������Iittie_temoL_jaLjmft^^  After nightfall, when the corn was  ripening, lie spoko in a whisper and had  his ear cocked for coons, But he loved  all kinds of good fun.  So this man had a boy ln his heart  and a boy in his basket that evening  we left the old house. My father and  mother and older brother had been  drowned In the lake, where they had  gono for a day of pleasure. I had then  a small understanding of my loss, but  I have learned since that the farm was  not worth the mortgage and that  cvoi-yfhing had to be sold. Uncle Eb  and I���������a little Tad, a very: Utile lad of  six���������were all that was left of what had  been in that home. Some were for sending me to the county house, but they  decided finally to turn me over to a  dissolute uncle, with some allowance  for my keep. Therein Uncle Eb was to  be reckoned with. He had set his heart  on keeping me, but he was a farm hand  without any home or visible property.,  and not, therefore, in-the mind of the  authorities, a proper guardian. He had  me with him in the old house, and the  very night he heard they were coming  after me in the morning we started on  our journey.  1 remember ke was a long time tying  packages of bread and butter and tea  and boiled eggs to the rim of the basket  so that they hung on the outside. Then  he put a woolen shawl and an oilcloth  blanket on the bottom, pulled the straps  over his shoulders and buckled them,  standing before the looking glass, and,  his voice: "Tired! Who wouldn't-be  tired with a big elephant like you on  bis back all day? I'd be 'shamed o'  myself t' set there an' let an old man  carry me from Dan to Beersheba. Git  out now an' shake yer legs."  I was the small boy, and I remember  It was always a great relief to g-et out  of the basket aud, having run ahead,  to lie in tlie grass among tho wild flowers and jump up at him as he came  along.  ��������� Uncle Eb had been working for my  father five yea?s before I was born. He  was not a strong man and had never  been able to carry the wide swath of  the other help in the fields, but we all  loved him for his kindness and his  kntick of story telling. He was a bachelor who cume over tbe mountain from  Pleasant Valley, a little bundle of  clothes on his shoulder, und bringing a  name that enriched the nomenclature  of our neighborhood. It was Eben Holden.  Ho hnd a cheerful temper and an imagination that was ii very wilderness of  oddities. Bears and panthers growled  end wero very terrible ln that strange  country. He had invented uu animal  moro treacherous than any ln the  woods, and he culled It a swift. "Sum-  thlli1 liko a panther," ho d-scribed the  look of it���������a fearsome erou .e that lay  in tlio edge of tlio woods ut sundown  and made a nolso like u woman crying  to lure tho unwary, lt would light one's  eye with four to hour Uncle Kb lift  his voicu iu the cry of llie swift.

Then  we nunc Inti tbe idncknoss of the thick  limber, nnd 1 could hour lilm fooling  bis way o\cr tbe den-i u-ttvoM with liU  eimo. I got down shortly nnd walked  bcxldo bim, holding on io tlio ntifli with  one linml. We stumbled often ami  were Jong in tbe trail In-fore we could  voe the moonlight through the tree column*. In tho clearing I climbed to lay  seat again, sod by and by we came tt  the road,  where  my  companion  sat  down, resting his load on a bowlder.  "Pretty hot, Uncle Eb; pretty hot,"  La said to himself, fanning his brow  with that old felt hat he wore everywhere. "We've come three mile er  more without a stop, an' I guess we'd  better rest a jiffy."  My legs ached, too, and I was getting very sleepy. I remember the jolt  of the basket as he rose and hearing  him say, "Well, Uncle Eb, I guess we'd  better be goin'."  Tbo elbow that held my head, lying  on the rim of tlie basket, was already  numb, but,the prickling could no longer rouse me, and, half dead with weariness, I fell asleep. Uncle Eb has told  me since that I tumbled out of the basket once and that he had a time of It  getting mi in again, but I remember  nothing more of that day's history.  When I woke in the morning I could  hear the crackling of fire and felt very  warm and cozy wrapped In the big  Bhawl. I got a cheery greeting from  Uncle Eb, who was feeding the fire  with a big heap of sticks that he had  piled together. Old Fred was licking  my hands with his rough tongue, end i  suppose tnat is what waked me. Tea  was steeping In the little pot that hung  over the fire, and our breakfast of boiled eggs and bread and butter lay on a  paper beside it. I remember well the  scene of our little camp that morning.  We had come to a strange country, and  tliere was no road in sight. A wooded  hill lay back of us, and just before ran  a noisy little brook, winding between'  smooth banks, through a long pasture  into a dense wood. Behind a wall on  the opposite shore a great field of rustling corn filled a broad valley and  stood higher than a man's head.  While I went to wash my face in the  clear water Uncle Eb was ' husking  some ears of corn that he took out of  his pocket and had them roasting over  the fire in a moment. We ate heartily,  giving Fred two big slices of bread and  butter, packing up with enough remaining for another day. Breakfast over,  we doused the fire, and Uncle Eb put  oh his basket. He made after a squirrel presently with old Fred and brought  him down out of a tree by hurling  stones at him. and then the faithful follower of our camp got a bit of meat for  bis breakfast. We climbed the wall as  he ate and buried ourselves in the deep  -Corm, The fragrant, silky tassels brush-  ed my face and the corn hissed at our  intrusion, crossing its green sabers in  our path. Far in tbe field my .companion heaped a little of the soft earth for  a pillow, spread the oilcloth between  rows and, as we iay down, drew the  big shawl over us.  Uncle Eb was tired after the toil of  that night and went asleep almost as  soon as he was down. Before I dropped off Fred came and licked my face  and stepped over me, his tail wagging  for leave, and curled upon the shawl  at my feet. I could see no sky hi.that  gloomy green aisle of corn. This going  to bed in the morning seemed a foolish  business to me that day, and I lay a  long time lookiug up tit the rustling  canopy overhead. I remember listening to the waves that camo whispering out of tho further field nearer and  nearer until they swept over us with a  roaring swash of leaves like that of  water flooding among rocks, as I have  hoard It often. A twlugo of homesickness camo to mc, and the snoring ot  Uncle Eb gave me no comfort. I remember covering my head and crying  softly as I thought of those who had  gone away and whom I was to meet In  a far country called heaven, whlthor  we wore going. I forgot my Borrow  Anally In sleep. When I awoke It had  grown dusk undor the com. I folt for  Uncle Eb nnd ho was cone, Tben I  called to hlra.  "Hush, boy! Lie low," he whlspored,  bonding over mo, a sharp look la his  eye,   "'Frnld they're lifter us."  Ho snt kneeling besido mo, holding  Prod by tho collar und listening. I  could hoar voices, tho rustle or the corn  and tho tramp of foot near by. It was  thundering In the dlstanco���������thnt heavy,  shaking thunder thut seems to take  hold of tho oorth-niul thoro woro  sounds In tho corn llko tho drawing of  sabers nnd tlio rush of many foet. The  noisy thunderclouds cnnio nearer and  the voices tlmt hnd mndo us tremble  woro no longer hoard.  - Undo Kb begun to fasten the oil  blanket to the stalks of com for a shelter, The rnln enmo roaring over us.  The sound of It was llko that of n host  of cavalry coming nt a gallop. Wo Iny  bracing the stalks, tlio blanket 'tied  above us, nnd woro quito dry for a  time.

Wlf* henrd nn noo-n nf the vo^erm   ]  Uncle Kb had hruuuhi sin nnn-'  ful of wnod nnd somo water  In  the ton pot  whllo 1  was  sleeping.    As soon ns  the rain hnd  pn*s<*l be stood listening awhile tndl  ahortiy open**, hia knife and made *  little" clearing.in the corn by cutting a  ffew hills.  "We've got to do it," he said, "er we  can't tajke any comfort, an', the man  tol' me I. could have ail the,! corn I  wanted,"  .,..,*.'.  j "Did you see bim, Uncle Eb?" I remember asking. ' *  :, "Yes," he answered, whittling In the  dark; "I saw him when I went out for  the water, an' it was he tol' me they  were after us." s   . .  He took a look at the sky after  awhile and, remarking that he guessed  tbey couldn't see his smoke now, began to kindle the fire. As it burned up  he stuck two'crotches and hung his  teapot on a stick that lay in them so  it took the heat of the flame, as I had  seen him do in the morning. Our grotto in the corn was shortly as cheerful  as any room in a palace, and our fire  6ent its light into the long aisles that  opened opposite, and nobody could seo  the warm glow of it but ourselves.       j  "We'll hev our supper," said Uncle;  JCb as he opened a paper and spread  out the eggs and bread and butter and  crackers. "We'll jest hev our supper,  an' by an'" by when every one's abed  we'll make tracks in the dirt, I can tell  ye."    ' ���������..'���������  Our supper over, Uncle Eb let me  look at his tobacco box, a shiny thing  of German silver that always seemed  to snap out a quick farewell to me before it dived into his pocket. He was  very cheerful and communicative and  joked a good deal as we lay there waiting ia the firelight I got some further acquaintance with the swift, learning,, among other things, that it had no  appetite for the pure in heart. t���������,  "Why not?" I inquired.  "Well." said Uncle Eb. "it's IteVthte*-;  the meaner the boy the sweeter the  meat." -: V-,v .  He sang an old song as he sa't%yVtlie  fire, with a whistled interlude* iMtjveen  lines, and the swing of it eveli? now  carries me back to that far day in the  fields. 1 lay With my head iiw his lap  while,he was singing. *   ��������� (.       ���������. .  I went asleep1 after awhile in spite  of all, right in the middle of a story. ,  The droning voice of Uncle Eb and the  feel of his hand upon my forehead-called me back, blinking, once or twice,.,:but',  not for long. < The fire wns gone down  to a few embers when Uncle Eb woke  me and the grotto was lit'only by a  sprinkle of moonlight from above.       j  "Mos*'   12   o'clock," .; he "whTsperedT^  "Better be off," ,    r   i  The basket was on his back, and he'  was all ready. . I "followed him (through  the long aisle of corn, clinging to..the  tail of his coat. The golden lantern of  the moon hung near the zenith, and  wben we came out in the open we could  see into the far fields. I climbed into  my basket ut the wall, and as tinde Eb  carried me over tlie brook, 'stopping on,  a flat rock midway to take a drink, I  could see the sky in tlio water, aiid it  seemed as if a misstep would have  tumbled me into the moon, ���������  "Hear the crickets holler," said Uncle  Eb as he followed the bank up Into  the open pasture. ���������  "What makes 'cm holler?" I" asked.    I  "Oh, they're jes* filln' their saws an'  thinkin*. Mebbe tellln' o' what's happened *em. Been a hard day fer them  llttlo folks. Terrible flood in their  country.

"Well, ye know," said he, "whero they ,  live the timber's thick an' thoy hev  bard work clenriu' t* rack a homo.'f  I was getting too sleepy for further  talk. Ho mado his wny from floj'd to  field, stopping sometimes to look off at  tho distant mountains nnd then at tho  sky or to whnck the dry stalks of mul-  lou with his cane.

"Hollo thero!" snid Undo Eb. "Here  we aro nt Luke Chnmpliiin."  I eould hour the lire t-rnokling and  smell tho odor of steeping ton.  "Yo flopped round Uko a flsh In tlmt  basket," snid Undo Kb.

"Jos' go-  In' f try.**  Vnclo Eb wns always enrefnl not to  commit inuiHotr on it doubtful point.

Uncle Eb," he nAitter-  ed to himself, "I thought we bed him  thet time.'"*v  He jerked again presently, and then  I could see a tug on the line that made  me jump. A big fish came thrashing  into the air in a minute. He tried to  swing it ashore, but the pole bent, and  the fish got a fresh hold of the water  and took the end of the pole under,  Uncle Eb gave it a lift then that  brought it ashore, and a good bit of.  water with it I remember how the  fish slapped me with Its wet tail and  sprinkled my face shaking itself between my boots. It was a big bass,  and in a little while we had three of  them. Uncle Eb dressed them and laid  them over the fire on a gridiron of  green birch, salting them as they cooked. I remember they went with a fine  relish, and the last, of our eggs and  bread and butter went with them.  Our breakfast over, Uncle Eb made  me promise to stay with Fred and,the  basket while he went away to Iind a  man who could row us across. lu about  an hour I heard a boat coming, and the  dog and I went out on the point -of  rocks, where we saw Uncle Eban'd another man heading for us, half,over the  cove.

The Chatham Incnbator and  Brooder has created a New Era  in Ponltry Raising.  The setting Hen as a Hatcher  has been proven a Commercial  Failure,  The Giatham Incnbator and  Brooder has always proved a  Honey Maker.  A Light, Pleasant and Profit"  able Business for Women  Many women are to-day making an independent living and putting by money every  month raising poultry with a Chatham Incubator.  Any-woman with a little leisure time at her  disposal can, without any previous experience  or without a cent of cash, begin the poultry  business and make money right from the start.  Perhaps you have a friend who is doing* so.  If not, we can gi ve you the names of many who  started with much misgiving only to be surprised by the ease and rapidity with which the  profits came to them.  Of course, success depends on getting a  right start. You must begin right. You can  never make any considerable money as a  poultry raiser with hens as hatchers. You  must nave a good Incubator and Brooder, but  this means in the ordinary way an investment  which, perhaps you are not prepared to make  just now; and this is just whore our special  offer comes in.  If you are in earnest, we will set you up tn  the poultry business without a cent of cash  down. If wo were not sure that the Chatham  Incubator and Brooder is the best and that  with it and a reasonable amount of effort on  your part you are sure to make money, we  would not make the special offer below.  THE SETTING HEN-Her failures  have discouraged matsy a poultry raiser.  You can make money  raising chicks in the right  way���������lots of it.  No one doubts that there Is money in raising  chickens with a good Incubator and Brooder.  Users of the Chatham Incubator and Brooder  have all made monoy. If you still cling to the  old idea that you can successfully run a poultry  business using tho hen as a hatcher, we would  like to reason with you.  In the llrst place, we oan prove to you that  your actual cash low in eggs, which the 20 hens  should lay during the time you keap them  hatching and brooding, will be enough to pay  for a Chatham Inoubator and Brooder in five  or six hatches,, tosay nothing whatever of the  larger and better results attained by the use  of the Chatham Inoubator aud Brooder.  If you allow a hen to set, you lose at least  eight weeks of laying (three weeks hatching  and Ave weeks taking care of the chickens), or  say in the eight weeks she would lay at least  three dozon eggs. Let the Chatham Incubator  on the hatching, while the ben goes on laying  eggrs.  Our No. 3 Incubator will hatch, as many eggs  as twenty setting heus, and do it better. JSow,  here is a question in arithmetic :���������  If you keep 20 hens from laying  for 8 weeks, how much cash do  you lose if each hen would haTa  laid 3 dozen eggs, and eggs are  worth 15 cents per dozen? , Ans.���������?9.00.  Therefore, when the Chatham Incubator is  hatching the numbor of eggs that twenty hens  would, hatch, it is really earning in cash for you  $9.00, b'osides producing for your profit chicks  by the wholesale, and being ready to do the  same thing over again the moment each hatch  isoff. - ,  Don't you think, therefore, that it pays to  keep the hens laying and let tha Chatham  Incubator do the hatching?  There are many other reasons why. the  Chatham Incubator and Brooder outclasses  the setting hen.  The hen sets when she is ready. The Chatham Incubator is always ready. By planning  to take off a hatch-ofr'bne right time, you may  have plenty of broilers to sell when broilers  are scarce and prices at the top notch. If you  depend on the hen, your chicks will grow to  broilers just when every other hen's chicks aro  being marketed, and wben the price is not so  stiff. '       . .."  The hen is a careless mother, often leading her  chicks amongst wet grass, bushes, and in places  whore rats can confiscate her young.  The Chatham Brooder behaves itself, is a  perfect mother and very rarely loses a chick,  and is not infested with lice.  Altogether, there is absolutely no reasonable  -reason-for-continuing-the_use_o������_a.hen_as_a,  hatcher and every reason why you should  have a Chatham Inoubator and Brooder.  We are making a very special offer, which '  it will pay you to investigate.  Small Premises Sufficient  For Poultry Raising.

'  Every Farmer Should  Raise Poultry  Almost every farmer "keeps hens,-' butwhll*  he knows that tliere is a certain amount of profit  in tho business, oven when letting it take care  of itself, few termers are aware of how much  they are losing every year by not getting into  the poultry business in such a way as to make  real money out of it. .        ���������,  The setting hen as a hatober will never he a  commercial success. Her business U to lay  eggs and she should be kept at it. The only  way to raise chioks for profit is to begin right,  by installing a Chatham Incubator and Brooder.  With such a machine you can begin hatching  on a largo scala at any time.  You can only get one crop off your fields in  year, but with a Chatham Incubator and  Brooder and ordinary attention, you can raise  chickens from early Spring until Wint  have a crop every month. Think of it!  WE WILL SHIP NOW    t  .     TO YOUR STATION    f  FREIGHT PREPAID  A CHATHAM  INCUBATOR  and BROODER  "YBirPayTKTMrGasIi���������  Till After 1906 Harvest  Quite a few farmers have discovered that  there is money in the poultry business and hav e  found this branch of farming so profitable that  thoy have installed several Chatham Incubators andBrooders after trying the flut.  Perhaps you think that it requires a great  deal of time or. a great deal of technical knowledge to raise chickens with a Chatham Incubator and Brooder. If so, you are greatly mistaken. Your wife or daughter can attend to  the machine and look after the chickens without interfering with their regular household  duties. ���������*���������.'���������'���������  The market is always good and prices are  never low. Tho demand is always iu excess cf  the supply and at certain times of the year you  can practically get any price you care to ask for  food broilers. With a Chatham Incubator and  irooder you can start hatching at the ��������� right  time to bring the chickens to marketable  broilers when the supply is very low and tlio  prices accordingly high. This you could never  do with hens as hatchers.  We know that th'efti is money in the poultry  business for every farmer who will go aoout it  right. All you have to do is to get a Chatham  Incubator and Brooder and start it. But per-  Laps you are not prepared just now to spend  the money. This is why we make the special  offer. '*.'  IS THIS FAIR?  We know there is money in raising chickens.  We know the Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has no equal.  ���������WVknow-thatrwith-ahy-reasonable effort- on-  your part, you cannot but make money out of  che Chatham Inoubator and BrOoder,  We know that we made a similar offer last  year and that in every case the payments were  met cheerfully and promptly, and that in many  cases money was accompanied by letters expressing satisfaction.  Therefore, wo have no hesitation in making  this proposition to every honest, earnest man  or woman who may wish to add to their yearly  profits with a small expenditure ot time ana  money.  This really means that we wiH net you up ln  the poultry business so that you can make  money right from the start, without asking for  a single cent from you until after 1008 harvest.
