I bear malice toward no one who lias
the idea that there ia no such thing as
the dual-purpose cow, 1 hope no one will
take anything I may say in this paper
in any other than a fiiemlly siiiiit.
"The dual-purpose cow has (lone
more towards, relieving suffeiing hu
manity than any other animal, that is,
if she comes up to my idea of a cow.
She, in the first place, should have
healih and constitution ; should be de
scended from a family noioil for a larse
flow of rich milk, and also capable of
producing ci'lves like herself, that will
be the pride of the breeder - to look at,
or a joy for the butcher who handles
them, either as young veal or prime
steer beef; and the epicure who gets a
roast of thifi kind of beef will bless him
self that he was born with an appetite,
and has Biieh juicr steaks and roasts hi

As to the breeds that are good general
purpose cattle they are tlia Red. Polls,
Ayrshires., Shorthorns, Devons and
Galloways., Each breed has its place
and habitat, ami wheje one will not
thrive the other will.. It is a fact that
Great Britain, has done more in the im
provement of livestock than all the rest
of tte i world combined, and the cattle
that are a success in the couth of the
British isles may be failures in the north.

So the people have developed a breed

be so in our state and tins United States
as we get down to the Imi-iness of dairy
ing and raising beef.
A good generid-pnrpe cow should
give at least 6030 pounds of milk and
make 300 pounds of butter a year, and,
when dry, fatten easily and make COO to
700 pounds of good beef, worth now $50.
This kind of a cow will have a good con
stitution, be able to stand a cold i-torm.

nation to her catile, for in developing
her cattle, she has also developed a race

her eldest daughter, the United States,
and the daughter has kept on in the

of her children do get in love with the

.. The Potato Boom.
During the past week there was a
boom in the potato market, until the
supply practically gave out. The high
est price paid was $1.50 per sack, but
they were of exceptionable quality, and
the sucks were well filled. For once the
1 growers made money by hnl.iing on to
their potatoes for a raise. It is said that
the greater portion of the crop on the
west side of the river , was sold during
the winter. A buyer from Oalifornia
was in 'that sjti n for a considerable
portion of the winter, and purchased all
the potatoes that he could secure and
shipped them away by boat. A few
speculators made money in potatoes.
Louis Jaguar, of Portland, who formerly
resided here, is said to have cleared $15, '
0,10 on potatoes purchased last fall. He
lost $3 O0J on his purchases last year.

Appropriate Church Services and
The churches generally observed Eas
ter Sunday with solemn and appropriate
services. For once the greater part of
the popn'ation attended the different
places of worship, and no doubt became
imbued wrh thoughlsof a better life and
Mt a higher re.ard for holy things.
New hats of the latest style were in evi
dence everywhere, and the millinery
stores had evidently been well patron
ized. The decorations in all the
churches we:e ta3ty and in, accord with
the eventful occasion.

Miss Joehnke's Lecture. . '
A crowded bouse g-eeted Miss Wil
hemine Joelmke, who gavo a very inter
esting lecture on Hawaii at Shively's
hall for the benefit of the public schools
Saturday evening. The views were ex
cellent reproductions of Hawaiian life,
customs, curiosities and resources. The
lecture was very instructive and gave the
audience an inside view of, the wonders
of the greatest of . Ameiica's new posses
The only fault to Miss Joenhkn's
lecture Is the pso of too many adjectives.
The most successful lecturers now give
their descriptions in the simplest and
most expressive language, which adds to
its effect. This will be observed in the
greatest lecturers and word painters,
who are popular on Chautauqua plat
forms. The greatest drawback to the lecture
was the noisy conduct of a number of
school boys on the rear seats. They
nude night hideous by their screeches
and whiatlos, and needed some big po
licemen wilh clubs to keep them still.
It would be a relief to the public for the
parents of those boys to keep them at
homo until they learn enough to conduct
themselves properly. They should be
given an object lesson, like the boys who
were disturbing the Salvation Army
e vices a few days ago.
