of interest was an address by Dean L- H.

Most of the papers were of such a tech
nical nature that the layman would have
difficulty in following them, ar.d. aa a
consequence, the attendance was confined
almost exclusively to college professors
and other experts comprising the mem
bership. Dean Bailey's address was given
tfie utmost consideration-and met with
the enthusiastic approval of those present.
His plea for thoroughness in our educa
tional system, particularly as It applies
to the agricultural colleges, was com
mended In the strongest terms by those

TRAINS PIGS FOR CIRCUS
Something; About Lll Kerslake, Who
Is With Ringllng Shows.
"Let me tell you." says Lll Kerslake,
the barnyard pedagogue, "that the
most Intelligent animal that lives, of
course excepting a fair portion of the
human family, is the pig. For ages,
the abused and misunderstood pig has
been looked upon merely aa a commer
cial proposition to be slaughtered and
sold in cutlets, so naturally the brain
cultivation of the animal has been neg
lected "How much more laudable it Is to
develop the benighted mind of the
porker than to cut steaks off his hind
quarters to utilize all but. the tail
and squeal for the purpose of worldly
Bain. For 20 years I have been a
teacher of pigs. Under my guidance
they have learned to climb ladders,
skip rope, ride on velocipedes and
shoot the chutes. In the act I am now
presenting with Ringllng Brothers'
Circus I have one pig that does every
thing but talk, and after a fashion It
actually does that. The animal's name
Is Rollo. He is the clown of the act,
and I consider him a wonder.
"Then there was Jennie. Excuse
these tears, but when I think of Jen-
f nle'straglc end I am moved. If you had
I kuown her as I knew her, you would
understand and excuse this momentary
weakness. - Jennie was Rollo's mother.
One Was criiaiiilj nt: uw.a7
light of human intelligence. Not only
could she reason, but she could make
her wants known with the aid of
spelling blocks. One Spring morning
how painful is the memory of it
Jennie was shipped on to the opening
stand of the show in a crate. The
chef of the circus I bear him no mal
ice, but how undiscernlng he must
have been mistook the pig tor a con
signment of pork for the cook house,
and that day when we sat down to
dinner I cannot proceed. It pains me
to recount the details of that fateful
day. You fan Imagine what I leave
unsaid, and I hope you realize how
deeply I feel my responsibility for the
untimely, end ef Jennie for not having
put the spelling blocks in the crate
with her. so she could have told that
too hasty cook who she was."
Without doubt Lll Kerslake is the
most successful trainer of domestio
animals that lives. The barn on his
Summer home at Cheboygan, Wis., is a
palace. In the barnyard there is a
large lake. His horses, pigs, geese,
chickens and cows follow him about
as a dog follows a boy. The pigs and;
chickens go Ashing with him, and while
he is waiting for a bite he teaches
them their tricks. He is indeed a won
derful man and his big act with Ring
ling Brothers' Circus is one of the
features of the long bill.
Kerslake is content to be called a
farmer. In fact, that Is what he usedj
to be before he became a great circus
GIVES SKIN FOR FRIEND
A. M. GRIIXEYS SACRIFICE
WILL SAVE MAX'S ARM.
Submits to Removal of Over 100
Inches of Cuticle, Which Is
Grafted on O. E. Goodwin.
Successful In every particular was the
dual operation performed at the Good
sBsSfigaaaMttfr Sms .rpWsi
A. M. Grille?. Who Gave Over 10
Square Inches of Skta to Save
Frlead1 " Arm.
Samaritan Hospital yesterday by Dr. R.
J. Marsh whereby over 100 square inches
of skin was removed from the thighs of
A. XI. Grilley. physical director of the
Portland Y. M. C. A., and grafted on th-a
right arm of Orton El Goodwin, a mem
ber of The Oregonlan reportorial staff.
Skin-grafting was necessary to save tho
arm of Goodwin, who was suffering from
carbolic acid bums. The process of the
operation commenced in the morning
at 9 o'clock, when both men were placed
under the Influence of anesthetics, from
which they did not recover until a late
hour in the a'fternoon.
"At 6 o'clock, when I made an exami
nation of my ipatlents I found the opera
tion to have been a successful one." said
Pr. Marsh Inst night. "In most of such
cases only a part of the grafted bit's of
cuticle heal, and It may require a second
operation two weeks from now."
Grilley did not recover from the effects
of the anesthetic as quickly as was
hoped. He suffered considerably and will
be ill for a number of days. His hero
Ism in undergoing the ordeal for the
sake of his friend Is very generally com
mended. Goodwin did not suffer so much
from the chloroform and awoke sooner
than did Grilley.
A number of Portland newspaper men,
neirly a score In all. volunteered to fur
nish skin when needed to graft on Good
win's arm. but It was found impractical
to anesthetixe and care for so, many at
the hospital. Dr. Marsh said it would t
better to take all the skin from one. or
perhaps two. and at this Juncture Gril
ley offered to furnish all.
Goodwin's condition is the result of a
drug clerk's mistake. Goodwin was bit
ten on the arm by mosquitoes, while re
porting a rampmeeting at Arleta &
month ago. The arm became swollen and
painful, and. suspecting that it might be
blood-poisoning, he went to a drugstore
for treatment. It being late at night. The
clerk bandaged his arm, and saturated
the bandage with undiluted carbolic acid,
thinking he was using a 1-per cent solu
tion of the deadly drug.
The ac!d, absorbed by the circulation,
acted as an anesthetic and ,Goodwln
reached his home at the Gayosa Hotel
almost senseless. The bandage remained
all night on the arm, and in the morning
he regained enough of his senses to sum
mon aid. The landlady responded and at
once cut off the bandage, then called a
doctor. The physician said the young
man would have been dead In another
The skin and flesh on the arm from the
wrist to the elbow was cooked to the
bone. Since then Goodwin has been at
tended constantly by a trained nurse and
his arm has been dressed several times
daily by a physician. Meanwhile the skin
and llesh has sloughed away, and last
Tuesday Dr. Marsh decided the arm was
In proper condition for akin-grafting.
Goodwin Is a young Englishman who
served as an officer In fhe Boer war. He
has lived in Portland something more
than a year.

Refuses $4000 an Acre
Wenatchee, July 16. W.
T. Clark, president of the
Wenatchee Canal Company,
refused an offer of $4000 an
acre for'liis five-acre ranch,
a short distance from 4 here.
The ranch has no improve
ments save an apple orchard,
and is considered one of the
model orchards of the valley.
The offer was made by H. S.
Worthen, a wealthy contrac
tor of Seattle, -and is the
highest price yet offered in
is in the center of the Colum
bia River early fruit belt.
Your opportunity lies in buy
ing in one of the newer dis
tricts (but in the proved fruit
belt), where-values are rea
sonablein a district where
your five-acre tract will cost
you hundreds instead of
thousands, but where it will
be sure,. in turn, to be worth
thousands also. There are a
few such places. One of
RICHLAND ON THE COLUMBIA
And we believe it is the best
buy in the Northwest today.
We want to tell you why we
think Richland is better for
you than other districts, and
if we can show you, we want
you to own one of our choice
tracts. A few advantages
possessed by RICHLAND
are: 1. Early ripening of
fruit and vegetables, which
means top prices. 2. Im
mense scope of district 16,-
000 acres already under
ditch, which means minimum
freight rates and buyers on
the ground to bid for your
crops. 3. Superior transpor
tation facilities best boat
landing on the river and two
railroads under construction.
4. Unsurpassed gravity
water system, and supply for
several times the area pos
sible to irrigate. 5. Lay of
land almost perfect, sloping
gradually to the river, of
which it commands a mag
nificent view. 6.. Mild Win
ter climate. 7. Schools and
churches and all modern con
veniences of town and coun
try life. 8. Low prices and
easy terms the best and the
$125 an Acre, on Time
Including Perpetual Water Right
Our land will be worth as
much as land in any other
district, because it will pro
duce as much and as good
fruit apples, pears, peaches,
cherries, grapes or small fruit
as 'any district anywhere,
and we charge only what the
older districts charged ten
years ago. There are already
900 people at RICHLAND,
and when it is fully devel
oped it will have the largest
orchard population of any
district in the Pacific North

vanced in price soon, so
buy now and save money.

" Th question of a practical car-fender that would afford eren a
reasonable degree of protection has engaged the attention of inventois,
municipalities and street railway men for the past twenty years.
During that time nearly 3000 fender patents have been issued from
the United States Patent Office, none of which has'met with general
favor, and in most instances have proven more of a menace than pro
tection. Here is the mortality list of just a few of our leading cities,

From the above report of but 6 of the hundred of important

the startling; annual mortality on account of streetcar and auto
mobile accident. IS AN EFFECTIVE FENDKR RF.EDEDI
The Standard I4fe-Net Fender, a Portland invention, for use on
streetcars arid automobiles, effectually solves the difficult problem.
With this fender in use, the person who may be run down and
struck by a streetcar or auto is effectually protected from the impact
of the car, and under all usual conditions will be carried safely along
until the car can be brought to a standstill. We are not claiming
miraculous qualities for this invention, but can confidently assert
that under all usual conditions the "Standard" will afford all the
protection that is practicable and consistent with the demands of
traffic. Read the following from Judge T. J. Geisler, the well-known
patent attorney, at 530 Chamber of Commerce :
Portland, Or, April 18, 1909.
Mr. M. L. Keizur, Portland. Oregon,
My Dear Mr. Keiaur In compliance with your request that I
express my views on your latest Automatic Car Fender, I have
to say, that, while Car Fenders, as a whole,, Involve a difficult
proposition, for the reason tiiat the conditions to be met with
vary so much, nevertheless I have no hesitation In pronouncing
your recent Invention an extraordinary achievement. Your
fender Is in a class all by Itself, as far as I have ever seen any
thing in use or patented anywhere. In short, after studying
your Invention, I am convinced that your Invention Is a solution
of the car-fender problem, because ft meets the conditions Im
posed by every type of car, and Is a reliable and most humane de
" vice for protecting life and limb. It also appeals to me because
of its simplicity of construction and cheapness of Installation
and maintenance. Yours sincerely, T. J. GEISLER.
