The 29ih annual reunion of Oregon
Pioneers huld ia 1'urtand last Friday,

in. by Grand Marshal John Minto, as
sisted by his aids, 0. T. Belcher, N. H.
Bird, F. H. Saylor and H. D. Chapman,
according to the years In which the
sturdy immigrants had come to Oregon.
In the load was an escort ot Native
Boils, and following were the pioneers,
carrying at the head of each division a
banner with the numeral of the year of
immigration. At thb head was Cyrus
H. Walker, of 1838, and following
immediately were J.H.D. Gray, Nh
poleon MoGillivray and Mrs. M. A.
Bird, of 1S3U. David MuLoughlin, who
came to Oregon with his father in 1824,
rode in one ot the carriages with guests
of honor. The streets were thronged witn
spectators as the double line of pioneers
moved out to the Exposition building,
and as each division passed it was given
the most cordial greetings and frequent
cheers., .Many were the commentj on
the sturdy, rugged appearance of the
founders of the commonwealth and the
remarkable vitality that they show at
the present time.
Exercises of unusual interest at the ex
posit on building iu the afternoon, an
enjoyable banquet spread by the
woman's auxiliary of the Pioneer Asso
ciation, the business meeting and the
gathering for lemini.cences in the eve
ning made up the program of the mem
The occasional address was delivered
by C. V. Galloway, of Oregon City, son
and grandson of pioneers of 1852. His
subject was ' The Natives of Old Ore
gon," which he handed in a scholarly
aiid sympathetic way, tracing the his
tory and characteristics and mythology
ef (lie old races.
The program of the afternoon ws
cli,or.a wuli a medley of songs familiar to !
the pioneers, by Mrs. Agatha Kelley, 1
among them "Home, Sweet Home,"
and "Billy Boy."
While the hand was playing Sousa's
"American Overture" and" "American
Patrol," John Minto and his aides were
marshaling the host of pioneers into line
- according to the order of the years in
which they came to Oregon, and they
were then escorted to the banquet hall,
where the annual feast was Bpread.
At the evening session the following
ofllcers were elected by a unanimous
vote of the association : President,

Judge William Galloway reported
that at the session of the association one

Professor C. F. Curtis says: The
Shorthorn type appears to be more
firmly established in this country than
in England, breeders In the latter coun
try being divided In their adherence to
the true Shorthorn type. There Is more
variation In public opinion there than
here. I was disappointed in many of
the herds I saw la England. This Is
the case with every American. Our
foremost breeders raise as good cattle
as the best in England. The British
have more good breeders than we have
In this country, but none better than
our best. Great emphasis Is placed on
size. They are continually on the look
out for something that may Improve
their herds. Their best animals are
not sold, but are kept as long as fit for
Inbreeding is practiced by all the
leading breeders, but line breeding Is
preferable. More attention Is given
to the Important matter of selecting
a sire than here. Each breeder tries
to get the best male out of his rival's
herd. Even common breeders are look
ing for high priced sires. First con
sideration In purchase of" sire Is Indi
vidual; next, pedigree; third, price. A
man had better pay $1,000 for a sire
If needed to Improve his herd. Not
doing this he had better stop. Make
your cattle good enough, put them In
good condition and they will sell them
selves. The greatest barrier to suc
cessful breeding today Is the scarcity
ot good sires and the plenitude of poor

The practice of breeding the young

young sow the produce of a yotuig sow
and a young boar and continuing this

delicate little mother, which will In a
few years farrow but two or three pigs

at once, sns The Prairie Farmer. I
would say, then, breed from mature an
liiinls, selecting only enough younj;
sows to keep up the required number
of breeding nnlnmls ns the old ones
drop out. Feed correctly, breed for
two litters each year, thus having two
crops of hogs to turn olT yearly; treat
your hogs us you would any other ani
mal that paid yon well, and you will
find that the well bred hog, well hous
ed and well fed, will always bring you
a large profit.
A litter of pigs should not be weaned
till nearly 3 months of age, and If fed
whero they cannot be molested by their
dam or other pigs from the tlmo they
are 4 to 0 weeks old they will never
know they nre weaned, but will con
tinue to grow very fast and have no
setback. Pigs wenued at 0 weeks of
ago must surely have a hard setback In
their thrift, but If not wenned till about
3 months old nud fed ns above with
suitable feed they are almost ready for

Tho splendid display of draft horses
In use at Chicago by the great packing
concerns attracted much atteutlon. The
teams were turned out In faultless
style and were well handled by their
drivers. Two, four nud six horse teams
appeared for the prizes, any of them a
credit to their owners. It Is good to
see the pride takeu In the turnouts by
owners of draft horses, and It Is well
to promote It In every possible way.
Every city In the couutry should bave
a draft horse show, such as the London

better caro of them aud better team

Cutting; In a Small Way Boat For

Where a large quantity of Ice Is to
be secured In a short time an ice plow
Is quite essential, but In the harvesting
of a small quantity in a leisurely way
that is, without any greater force
than the hands ordinarily employed
I doubt if anything Is gained by using
a plow. In fact, the pond usually
floods after the first day and freezes
the plow marks full.
I have found the plan shown In Fig.

cakes the desired width Is laid on the
Ice, and a board laid up against it. A
mark Is made along the edge of the
board by pushing the forward corner
of an ax along the side of the board.
Saw up this mark with a crosscut saw,
having one handle removed. Thes6
strips can be made Into cakes by chop
ping at suitable distances across them
with an ax. Borne saw both ways, but
I consider It a saving of time to block
them off and do what trimming may be
necessary in the Icehouse, where the
clippings come handy to fill In the crev
ices. Of course a thin bladed sharp ax
is quite as essential here as elsewhere.
Our icehouse is about 40 rods from
the pond, and to the best of my recol
lection for the past 20 years we would
begin to get lee when the ground was
bare and would of course have to hoist
the Ice In the wagon at the pond and
carefully engineer from the wagon to
the bottom of the Icehouse, but about
the time the filling had reached a plane
even with the wagon box a snow would
come, and although this would save us
some labor at the pond It was lost by
the extra lift necessitated at the Ice
house. A few years ago, being short of help,
I was casting about for some way to
save the lift at the pond, and my eyes
fell on the stoneboat Ours is rather
wider than they are ordinarily made,
about three feet, I should say. I put a
coupfe of stakes on either side, staid

load and unload this boat until the
filling reaches above the doorslll.
An Improvement on this boat Is

In detail In Fig. 3. As will be readily
seen, this railing can be detached easily
from the boat The Irons on the back
posts are bolted to the cross strip and

to the side rails. By removing these
bolts the sides are easily removed. In

Alfalfa In the Rotation.
Alfalfa is a most valuable factor In
any system of rotation. In Colorado
we find It remarkably so In this re
spect as to nil other crops. It Is the
secret of our great success at Greeley
In raising potatoes. Of course the
Greeley soil Is Just the kind for pota
toes, but alfalfa ground doubles tbe
crop, and wheat after potatoes thus
grown gives vastly Increased yields.

! THE EDITOR Al THE FAIR.
Wonderful Sights at the Pan
American. I haveseen the Pan-Americai Exp
ei tion and reveled in its myriad beauties
and tokens of nineteenth century pro
. gress. The pen of the most gifted writer
or the brush of the greatest painter
could, not do justice to the scene pre
o eented here. Any attempt to give the
reader anything like an adequate de
scription of the exposition would prove
futile, but a few notes made in passing
will be of interest to all and perhaps en
courage them to make a pilgrimage to
this now most interesting spot on earth.
The site of tbe Pan-American Expo
sition is an ideal one. It is on high
ground and includes many acres of im
proved park lands. It would be difficult
though, for a stranger to distinguish the
division line, so perfect is the blending
of the parts. There is a wealth of foli
age and hundreds of beds of lovely
flowers, interspersed with grassy glades
and graveled walks.
The buildings, of which there are
some twenty very large ones for exhib
its and about one hundred smaller ones,
including Jstate and foreign , buildings,
midway show buildings, etc , are radi
ant with color.
In the midst of these buildings ia a
tower 410 feet high, most beautiful in
design and graceful in proportions. This
is the electric tower, pictures and descrip
tions of which have made many thous
ands of people eager to visit the Expo
sition. Eve y vnitor pauses in wonder
and admiration before this splendid
structure. From a niche in the face of
the tower pours a great volume of
water which is bro'ien int.) spray
by a deflector and fails upon broad
edges from which it flows into an im
mense basin, in which are several foun
tains, of which rise to a great height.
By day the scene here is grand and in
spiring. By night, when thousands of
incandescent lightsand ahundred search
lights illuminate the tower and its sur
roundings, the grandeur and inspiration
are increased a thousand fold. It is a
picture that must linger forever in the
memory. While one stands entranced
by the sight, the color everywhere
changes to purple, and from that to red,
and to blue, t) violet, and to green.
The imagination is too feeble to conjure
; up a true picture of tho scene. One
' must see these changing colors upon the
tower and water in order to appreciate
On the west is the entrance to the
Midway, a place of unboundet interest
for. visitors. Here one might spend
many dayd pleasantly and profitably
The Mid way is not only a place of amuse
ment, but a great educator, affording as
it does glimpses of life in many foreign
lands. It is only a step from the"Streets
of Mexico" with its characteristic bull
fight to the "Hawaiian Village" and the
''Burning Mountain of Kilaen," and
across the street is ths " Beaut' ful Ori
ent" with its camels, asses, and peculiar
dances and sword contests, while within
easy walking distances are to be found
faithful reproductions of life in t he Phil
ippines, Africa, Japan, Germany, Italy
and Greenland, the South before tbe
war and the Klondike. Here one may
experience the pleasure of a "Trip to
the Moon," visit "Heaven and Hell,"
be elevated in the cars of th e aerio-cy-cle
to an attitude of 275 feet , study the
American Indian in the "Indian Con
gress," Bee Bostock's Trained Wild Ani
mals, look in at the famous diving elks
and wild water sports, see reproduced
in pictures scenes in "Jem salem on the
Day of the Crucifixion," " Battle of Mis
sionary Kidge," "Johnston Flood," and
incidents in the career of Cleopatra.
Here also a glass factory, a Moorish pal
ace, a llou e Upside Down, "Dream
land" or mirror maze, a Gold Mine,
Scenic Railway and .Rivers, a Gypsy
Camp, the White City in miniature and
many other choice attractions.
Encircling the larger buddings of the
Exposition is a grand canal on , which
nre always to be eten gondolas, electric
launches and other craft. These pass
under the Triumphal bridge and through
grottoes of great beauty and interest.
An interesting experience, and one
which visitors to the exposition gener
ally avail themselve of, is at the electric
tower. Elevators 'run to a landing 270
feet above the ground, from which there
is a grand outlook, the vision having a
wide grange for many miles around,
sweeping the entire Niagara Frontier.

pleasant after so much rainy weather.
