Marriage Is Without a Doubt
the Greatest of All Human
By HALL CAINE. Author
1LOOK UPON MARRIAGE AS THE GREATEST OF ALL HUMAN
INSTITUTIONS. I THINK IT IS AN IMMENSE SUCCESS AND
THAT WOMAN, NOT MAN, HAS MADE IT SO. WITHOUT IT
THE HUMAN FAMILY WOULD FALL INTO SWIFT AND COM
Whether marriage comes out of the family or the family out of
marriage is a metaphysical question that does not trouble me. What
I see in the world is a mighty force that holds the children of men to
gether as nothing else could.
I think MARRIAGE HAS JUSTIFIED ITSELF, that the
majority of marriages are happy ones and that, taken together, they
constitute the mightiest factor in the welfare of humanity. My ex
perience has been that this is TRUE ALL THE WORLD OVER
and among all sorts and conditions of people, from people like Mr.
Chevalier's "Old Dutch" to the people who wear coronets and the
people who sit on thrones.
But I also think that if marriage as an institution has been a
blessing to the human family it bns not been by virtue of any legal
contracts or religious sacraments whatsoever, but solely by the opera
tion of that BEAUTIFUL NATURAL LAW which Jesus de
scribed when he spoke of a man leaving father and mother and cleav
ing to his wife, and they, too, being one flesh whom God hath joined
together and therefore no man might put asunder.

the greatest enemy of the sweet

"The greatest enemy to the culture
of the sweet cherry in Oregon is a
disease which produces great damage
and loss in the moister sections of the
state," said Mr. Barns. 'This disease
Is usually accompanied by a more or
less copious exudation of gum, and
from this fact is commonly called
"L'pon examining trees which show
gumming, spots or areas of the bark
are discovered to be dead and brown
down to the wood. It Is really a bark
disease. Bacteria are found in these
dead or dying areas of bark. Inocula
tion of healthy trees with pure cul
tures of these bacteria results in the
production of gum at the inoculated
It seems probable, therefore, that
the disease Is a bacterial bark disease
The death of trees, limbs or twigs is
due to girding by the disease, and
may occur at almost any time of the

URGES RANCHERS TO
RAISE MORE POULTRY
"Poultry keeping is a business that
any honest young man or woman may
conduct without losing their self-r
spect," said Prof. James Dryden In a
short course lecture at the Oregon
"The first lesson to learn is to gel
rid of the moral cowardice which
troubles many in this connection," he
continued. "The hog raiser and the
wheat growers w ill not look at a chick
en, but there are no real grounds for
such an attitude. The poultry prod
ucts of the United States were estl
mated at $750,000,000 for 1911.
"A special location, special soil, cli
mate, market conditions and a special
man are necessary to a big success in
specialized poultrying. But I do not
mean to tell the farmer that the poul
try business is for the specialist. On
the contrary it is a question whether
specialized poultry farming is best any
"I believe it Is far better for the in
dividual farmer to have his flock of
hens to raise along with his other farm
crops. In Oregon the general number
is about 50 hens. They could be in
creased to 100 with very little addi
tional labor. It is the best and quick
est way to increase the poultry prod
ucts of the state. The main poultry
producing section of the country is
the Middle West where the system of
mixed farming is used.
Different Systems Used
"The poultry specialists follow dif
ferent systems, some having small, in
tensive farms of but an acre or so,
and others have the free range colony
system on large acreage, as near as
Petaluma, Cal. Probably the best num
ber of hens is 50 to the acre. A great
many more can be kept on an acre
successfuly for a few years, but not
for long. The ground will become in
fested with disease and vermin unless
it is cropped. The growing of garden
crops on the ground alternate years
will obviate that difficulty. The yards
must be kept pure and clean.
On some soils one can keep more
hens than on others. On heavy clay
not so many can be kept as on light
soils. Buy cheap land to go into the
poultry business. It is not necessary
to have high-priced land. Much of the
poultry range of Rhode Island is rocky
and not much good for other agricul
tural purposes. Light, porous soil is
best, but not sand, or soil that nothing
will grow on, for one must have feed
crops to make the business pay.
"Here at the college we have 200
hens on one acre, rotating crops with
the chickens. Last summer we had a
heavy crop of oats, although when we
began to keep chickens there nothing
would grow, because the land had been
cropped out. Near Petaluma a man
is keeping 1,000 hens on three acres of
light, rather sandy soil. Near Los An
geles a man cleared $1,500 with 500
hens on two acres in a year.
"I visited a Petaluma farm of 120
acres where two men and a 14year
old boy took entire care of 6,000 hens
and 10 cows the hens paying for the
cows, which gave the milk for the
hens. It took the boy, on horseback
Just half an hour to feed the $6,000
"The proportion of feed, 75 to 100
pounds a year for each hen ,is shown
in this carload order: 40 sacks each of
wheat, corn, barley and middlings. 50
of bran, 7 of charcoal, mixed with milk
and meat scraps (200 pounds o
