The Oregon State Fair date is
September 13 to 18, and I wish to
call the attention of poultry
keepers generally to the poultry
exhibit at this fair. ; - This exhibit
at previous fairs 'has been well
supported and superior to many
of our western states. We wish,
however, to make the coming ex
Jiibit the best that has yet. been
held, equal if not superior to that

;I try Well represented at this -fair.
We knowthe txmltrv mdustrv is
"one of the most important lrLthe
not look at it in that way. and it
is often the fault of those inter
ested in the industry , that they
do not. Let us show that the
poultry interests can make as
good a showing at the state fair
as any of the other industriej
represented. It can be made one
of the most attractive as well as
instructive features of the show.
The poultry department of the
state fair is not for the special
benefit of the poultry-breeders
and exhibitors; it is a part of the
general scheme of the, fair man
agement to have every : industry
represented at the fair in order
that the fair as a whole may be
attractive and instructive to vis
iters generally, and it rests
largely with the poultry men
themselves to see that their own
industry is properly represented.
Let us send to the fair such an
array of exhibits as will impress
the public with the fact that the
poultry industry is worthy of

Eastern Demand Great .
Another point I .want to . men
tion. , There is a great interest
being developed in poultry-keeping
in this state. People in this
State are studying better methods
of poultry keeping, and people in
eastern states are writing letters
asking if poultry . can be raised
successfully in' this country. The
Agricultural College can hardly
fill the demand for such informa
tion. -Therefore, let us make ah
exhibit that will show that , good
poultry can be raised' here, and
the visiting public at the fair will
be pleased and the poultry breed:
ers will be pleased in increased
orders for stock. ,
. Hundreds of thousands of dol-
every year for poultry and osrffs.
How to keep that money at home
is a vital problem. , A good poul
try exhibit at the fair, by stimu
lating a greater interest in poul
try keeping, will go a long way
toward solving this problem. ..:
v Want Exhibits
First, we want an exhibit that
will appeal to the fancier or
breeder of pure-bred stock; sec
ond, we want anexhibitthatwill
appeal to the man who is less in
terested in breeding exhibition
fowls than in practical meth
ods of poultry culture. A suc
cessful state fair exhibit must
have both. If we can do our
part the poultry buildings will be
crowded - with visitors, and the
poultry exibit will be the most
talked of feature of the fair after
it is over.
An extension to the main rjoul-
try building, 40x75 feet, has been
constructed. With this addition
to the display space a larger and
more attractive exhibit can be
made. The main building is be
ing thoroughly rennovated and
better lighted The main build
ing will be devoted : entirely to
cniCKens, tne water fowl, turkeys,
etc., being provided for in the
new building.
v Fine New Features
There will be several new fea
tures added to the exhibit.
Among them will be a model
poultry house and a yard with
nock of ' fowls in it.
A modern
colony house will house the fowls
ouu vuxutuie poultry ience win
front of the main, building. Ai
nice flock of some 25 pure-bred
fowls will demonstrate the use of
this house. We would lib nlan
to show as an object lesson a poor
type oi nouse and yard, with a
mixed lot of chickens of all sizes,
shape and color, such as is fre
quently found in the backyard or
on the farm. If, therefore, some
board of health or sanitary in
spector .will ..condemn a. house of
this type and donate it to the
Fair, we will set it up. where it
will show by contrasts the differ
ence between .what' it "should be
and what it frequently is not.
i It is also planned - to have a
dressed .fowl exhibit to Tdemon4
strate . good-' and poor types of
. .-.lit:.:. - '.J JUT 'j:
market fowls and approved meth
market qualities- bi different
breeds as table fowl. The plan
is to show side by side well fat
tened as well as poorly fattened
ones, and well dressed and poor
ly dressed specimens.. Specimens
oseveral of the popular breeds
will be shown' dressed. No pro
vision, has bepn made . for prizes
for dressed fowl; if this can be
arranged for, announcement will
be made of the fact later. :
Boost! Boost!
I hope to j3end out later more
complete details pf .the exhibit;
meantime we wish our 'poultry
friends would do two thines: 1
boost the poultry industry . and
the , show: 2 look over their
flocks .of chickens and their neigh
bors' chiekens, and let' us see
what section of the state can
make the best sh&wing at the

.Edward P. Smith of New
York, representing the stock
and bond holders of the Oregon
Electric Railroad company, is to
day making an inspection trip of
the Portland-Salem line of that

Manager Guy W. Talbot, and it
is reported that the expenditure

has been practically decided up

President Moffat and a num
ber of the directors of the Oregon
Electric were in Portland several

appropriation of enough money
