QUITS THE

Amongst the many would-be fighters ond "boxers" who have visited

He once made great preparations to

spectators to pay hall rent, and the
mutch was called oil. Evidently Ihe
Kid has hud enough of tlie Uglrting

THE A1K UF LONDON.
There is no fresh air in the heart
of London according to Iho conclusions of n recent investigator, lie
says: "No evidence of ozone was an,
where apparent except at Browns
wood park, in the northeast. It was
from the northeast quarter tire wind
was blowing, and the air had losl
all trace of ozone before it hail
reached Hyde nark. At llushcy pail.,
although practically a country district, no ozone was present in tho
air. London had not only atictracteil
the goodness out ol the air thai
swept over it, but had added to Ir
thc exhalations from the Imcalh and
bodies of millions of human bciin. ,
innl lens of thousands ol animal..
Persons living within one or l«"
mile radius of Charing Cross canimi
.have fresh air entering their dwoll-
ings at any time."

Poultry raising pays.
People who tell yeoffcat there is no
money in raising c#W- -»ay have tried
to make money in tri»*m»iiiess by using
setting liens as hatchers, and they
might as well have tried to locate a
gold miiki in the cabbage patch. The
business of a hen is—to lay eggs. As
a hatcher and brooder she is outclassed, Thai's the business of the
Chatham Incubator and Brooder, nnd
they do it perfectly and successfully.
The poultry business, properly con*
ducted, pays far better than any other
business for tho amount of time and
money invested.
. Thousands of poultry-raisers—men
and women all over Canada and the
Unitetl States—have proved to their
satisfaction that it Is profitable to raise
