form a most beautiful picture of farm
buildings, fences, stock, men at work
in a crrain field, a flower garden, barn
yard, enclosing stock, a young lady
seated upon a horse, evidently herding
the stock, a stream of water trickling
down through the fields, a train of cars
nafasine near the front of the bouse,
and back of the farm is a background
of mountains, some Of which are stud
ded with huge fir trees. There are
9203 pieces of wood in the scene.
and there are over 100 different varie
ties which were procured from nearly
every state in the Union some from
the old countries, it is mree leet ana
ten inches by four feet and seven
inches in size and represents eight
years of work at odd spells which the
gentleman figures would equal two
years of steady work.

Notes Gathered from Around the Tablet ol the
Medford Business Class.
Last Friday week we moved our
quarters to the Lindley building,. room
three, where we are now nicely and
comfortably situated.
On Tuesday evening of last week, ouf
"Foreman" being ill, was unable to at
tend the class, but having plenty of
work laid out for us, we got along finely
The students of our class are showing
a great deal of interest in the work, es
pecially when in the ledger, because
thev have learned that to make a suc
cess they must depend upon their own
It is really hard to say who is entitled
to the most credit in finishing up our
second set. All worked hard and all
balanced their books, but if there
any distinction of credit, it is conceded
and penmanship.
Del. Hazel and Robert Beaver were
in our midst-one evening recently as
visitors. Mr. Hazel is taking a busi
ness course in the public school, and
we are pleased if he found anything of
interest to him around our table. Those
who are interested in our work are al
ways welcome to visit us. waiter
Ferguson, trnest lressier ana lien
Brown were also visitors upon this
same evening.
No person is qualified to successfully
carry on any business who has not a
practical knowledge of accounts. We
occasionally hear of some man making
a grand success in business .who could
not write his name mucb less keep a set
of books in a systematic manner. Such
cases are rare exceptions, however, and
he who has in him tne elements ot suc
cess and had he possessed a thorough
knowledge of accounts and commercial
transactions his possibilities would
have been greatly enlarged. The man
who trusts to his memory lor a record
of the transactions of business life is
sure to loose by it and to have the un
pleasant experience or having some ac
counts disputed. This does not apply
alone to men in the mercbantile pur
suits but to every one who has dealings
with his fellow men. We firmly be
lieve it is every boy's, duty to get as
thorough an education as possible, but

In harmony with a promise in a
recent issue of The Mail, 1 will give
in brief my experimeute witb these
noble game bird and my ideas as to the
best method of stocking the beautiful
Rogue river valley. In the fall of
S94 I had some correspondence with
lovers of the rod and gun concerning
putting out in Bear creek valley
some five or six pairs of these birds
I was then living in Polk county, in
the Willamette valley,, and the birds
were quite abundant in the wild state.
After much inquiry I secured the
refusal of six pairs of these birds at
the net cost of two dollars a pair, this
was thought to be tocThigh a price for
birds that were so abundant. There is
one quality about the bird that makes
it high, priced, annougn aounoant in
numbers, that is the astuteness of the
bird and its idea of self protection.
He will not enter a trap ana in con
finement he is always shy and timid.
Many of the birds offered roc sate are
those captured during the last hunt
ing season with slight wounds, often a
crippled wing. This class of birds as
usual thing give oniy aieappoim-
ment to their capturers. Many pea
Die secure the eggs of the wild bird
and place them under a domestic hen.
The eggs hatch in twenty-three days
but in many cases the owner only has
left the empty shells for his trouble,
the little chicks having, the com
mon saying is, "run off." Ignorance
of the native habits of the bird is
nartlv the cause of this loss, but leno-

the cause, while ignorance upon the
nart of the chicks adds to the difficulty

traduction, as it were, ana a on oi
bird laneuage to learn. Here the ex
perience of many shows failure. From
the many iaiiures irom various causes
it has been given out that the birds
will not lav in confinement and that
eggs laid la confinement are not fertile
and will not hatch, furthermore, that
the chicks when batched will not stay
with the common domestlo hen. lliese
same difficulties are given forth con
cerninir the ouall, the native pheaa
ant, the blue grouse and the prairie
During the summer of 1895 I had
only one pair of Mongalians confined in
a coop. Sxl'J ieet. uuring tne season
onlv secured nine eggs two were not
fertile and seven had chicks in them
nnarlv readv to batch when the leg
horn hen, brooding them, deserted
tho nest. So nothing was accomplished
except to establish the fact that the
eggs would have hatched under proper
circumstances. I lost tho hen shortly
after by accident. I at once wrote to
Mr. Casper, mv friend at Dallas, to
secure for me three hens, perfectly
sound and well and with good wings
After much difficulty these were fouud
and delivered at Medford at a cost of
$7.75. For 1890 my coops were-en
larged and small groves or shelters or
young firs and cedars were planted in
the yard. As a reward of my care and
attention the three pheasant hens laid
191 eggs during the season, only one
of the birds offering to set. This one
bird was much disturbed ' but brought
off three chicks, leaving seventeen
eggs in the nest most of -which were
