A poultry business, started in a small way last spring by Otto Reissner, Jr., of this city, is blossoming into an enterprise that seems to bring its owner some very neat returns.
Otto purchased a few purebred White Leghorns, rented an acre of ground form C. P. Jurisch, between West Fifth and Sixth streets, and started his poultry ranch. The business thrived from the beginning and the young poultry enthusiast now has a flock of six hundred choice White Leghorns that till bring him a fancy price on the Twin City market any time he cares to dispose of them.
He feeds his flock milk and Gold Medal feed three times a day and finds that his liberal diet pays big returns in the size and quality of his feathered money-makers.
If the enterprise continues to prosper, as it has during its first season, the owner will probably make arrangements to engage in the business on a larger and more profitable scale next year.
