Just now the newspapers of Oregon
are having a great deal to say about Or
egon fruit being shipped East, where it
is sold as a California product. There is
too much truth in the statement to make
the thing funny. But a few days ago at
Chicago some Orgonians, desirous of
learning whether or not there was any
sale for Oregon fruits, took occasion to
give the matter a fair test, and at the
same time "evened up" on California for
having so long sailed under false colors
by palming off as her own Oregon choicest
fruits. Just outside the World's Fair
grounds some boys were selling Califor
nia (genuine, not" Oregon-grown) pears,
peaches, apricots and cherries, and the
little fellows were loudly crying their
wares "Fresh California fruit !" "Cal
ifornia peaches:" "California pears!"
The Oregonians approached the boys,
examined their fruits, and told the boys
that it was not California fruit they were
selling, and apsured them it was grown
in Oregon. The boys said it might be

made it sell better, then the wise men
from Oregon dug down in their jeans
and brought up some shining two-bit
pieces, which they gave to the boys with
the understanding that they were to
shout " Oregon fruit," " Oregon pears,"
etc.. during the remainder of that day.

good laying hen from a strange flock? Not
many can do it ; yet it can easily be done
after a short study of make-up and char
actoristics.says a writer in Northwest
farmer. There goes a hen with a thick
neck, large head, ill-shaped, walks list
lessly about, seemingly with no inten
tion or purpose in view. She does not
care to scratch ; she hangs around the
nennouse, evidently waiting for her next
feed. She gets up late in the morning,
and goes to bed early in the evening.
That hen may be put down as a very
poor layer. The eggs of some of tl.n
other hens go to help nav her keep.
Here comes another. She walks briskly,
and there ia an elasticity in her move
ments which shows she has something
in view. She is neat and natty in ap
pearance, small head, with a slim neck,
nicely arched or curved. She forages or
scratches all day long, and may be too
busy to come for her evening meal. She
is at the door in the morning waiting to
be let out. She snatches a few niouth
fuls of feed, and Is off to the meadow,
looking for insects. Before she gets out
in-the morning she generally deposits
her daily egg in the nest, or returns
after a short forage. She is neat, clean
and tidy, with a brightness and a fresh
ness pleasant to the eye. That 1b the
hen that pays for her feed and gives a
good profit all the year round. The wri
ter has noticed these traits since boy
hood, and knows that they are infallible.
By studying these traits any man may
