Sydney Y. Evans, a well known
Benton county boy arrived today to
take in the stock show. His home
is in.Eugeue, and his family resides
there, but most of the time during
the past two years has been spent
in Alberta, Canada, where he is
representative of A. C. Ruby &
Company of Portland, jmpoiters of
Percheron, Shires, German Coach
and other breeds of thoroughbred
Incidentally he has been invest
ing heavily in Alberta lands and at
this time has 2,000 acres. Tn the
advance in the price of land he has
already netted a profit of $7,000
since he purchased. Lands are
selling there at $14 to $40, and
some near town have gone as high
as 55S8o. The country is fast set
tling up, and Mr. Evans believes
there are splendid opportunities to
make money. The wheat yiesld i
40 to 60 bushels per acre, and oats
as high as 100. Oats goes 52
pounds to the bushel, in its plump
ness resembling barley more than

Two Poultry Men and Their Troubles
Bad Cases of Mctheihood-
The mortal remains of four set
ting hens lie unhonered and unsung
except by this tender lullaby on the
premises of Gene Simpson. Their
last days were full of sorrow and
trouble, and they made the life of
Gene very weary. He had pheas
ant eggs that needed the nurtur
ing care of a tender mother and the
four hens were imported from a
neighboring farm to attend to that
duty. When the little birds came .
off it was the beginning of dea h
and destruction. The tramp of tte
old hens was like that of an eleph
ant and every time' a little $2.50
pheasant came within reach it was
promptly stepped on and crushed.
What didnt die by that route were
led into the weeds and wet grass
until the last one had perished and
passed away. Gene concluded that
the mother hens were a cross of
bulldog stock and unfit for the
pheasant trade. He walked one
morning out into his pens. ' seized
the rantankerous hens by the nape
of the neck, wrung their heads off
and kicked their craven bodies over
the fence, uttering in guttural
tones, "Let the carrion rot". This
is a reminder that Sam. Eane's ex
perience with a setting hen the
other day had its interesting phase.
He had imported, her for setting
purposes, and though she had nne

summer a newspaper can
be read without artificial light as
late as n o'clock' at night. The
best opportunity for home seekers,
aside from the profitable grain
crops, is in the rapidly increasing
price of land. The territory is the
last great country to be settled, and
with its Immense grain producing
power, Mr. Evans thinks, is bound
to prove a profitable land for inves
tors and settlers.
After two or three weeks, Mr.
Evans will return to Alberta, and
will take his family for the summer.
