from 160 Hens
"Dear Mr. Reefer: I have fed two boxes of More Eggs to my hens and I
think they have broken the egg record. I have 160 white Leghorn hens
and in exactly 21 days I got 125 dozen eggs."- H. M. PATTON.
You, too, can reap bigger profits than ever, by making sure of a big egg yield
this winter. A scientific tonic has been discovered that revitalizes the flock and
makes Lens work all the time. The tonic is called "MORE EGGS". Give your
bans a few cents' worth of 'MORE EGGS" and yaou will be amazed and de-
lighted at the result.
"MORE EGGS" Tonic keeps hens in the best possible laying condition. It isa
concentrated tonic, not a food. It contains every element that helps make eggs.
Start using More Eggs Tonic right now. Keep your hens laying right through
the coldest weather when eggs are highest You can get big profits from your
hens this winter, just as hundreds of other " MORE EGGS " users are doing.
Hens Lay
All Winter
Results tell the story. Here are just a few letters from poultry raisers who are
getting more eggs and more profits through the use of Reefer's More Eggs Tonic.

the girl. "lint why should Dr. Lan(aster

home in Avonmleth. where he is respected
and powerful?    Nothing of all this is
known there.'
The matron wrung her hands. "I don't

Joan had the feeling that she should
no"t listen toI the inatron's talk about Lan-
easter: it seeied disloyal of her; but she
felt. too. that she must know more, and
speedily, if she was to thwart that menae-
ing evil which she sensed more and more
clearly as the moments passed.
"Aye. but there's worse than that." con-
ltiued Mrs. Fraser, dropping her voice. "I
spoke to you of the times when the Doctor
has come hack from Avonmouth, not a man
but a devil.  I said Iii shoot him then

Joan rose. "I know that trouble is at
an end.- she si.   "And I am sure Dr.
Lancaster Is incapable of having misap-
priprintoed that ione'. And if NBr. Mlyers
ma  - him think he had done so when he
was under the influence of morphine, and
has been blackmailing him, that has come

"Yes, Miss Wentworth. And even If thi
Doctor did use the mone'y for some pur-
pose or other, he wasn't responsible."
They went toward the door. Although
she was not aware iof it. Joan was strain-
ing her ears to hear, through the dripping
rain, the sound of the buggy wheels. She

uneasily. Each had something to be con-

"Dr. Lanciaster could never do without

in the words but she remembered Lan-
