One of the noted breeders, an Oregoninn.
and close to Portland, remarked yesterday
the difference b?tween the poultry situ
Uon In th Pacific Northwest five years
ago and now. "The Western breeders
liave waked up for certttln." he betran.
"Why. It's hard to sell a common bird
nowadays. I can sell all my beft birds
faster than I can raise them. Birds that
bring $2i to t."A My Vi chickens are much
harder to dispose of. Put It down as a
fact, and an encouraging fart, that West
ern breeders Insist on having the bst
stock money can buy. Why. only five
minutes ago a neighbor of mine sold a
hen for M. And she wasn't sold for a
stew, either. And then take that White

Poultry in Three Classes.
"Of course." continued he. Vthc primary
object of this show Is to raise breeding
tock to supply the better grades of birds
for meat and eggs. It. Isn't an association
of fanciers raising fancy fowls at fancy
prices, but a bed-rock proposition of rais
ing the best chickens possible for egg
getters and meat producers. Purely prac
tical, nothing ornamental about it. Now
we might put the chickens into three
classes. The Americans, including Plym
outh Rocks, Wyandotte and Rhode Isl
and Reds. They " are the medlum-sisMi
birds, and raised both for meat and eggs.
Then take the Leghorns, Minorca and
Hamburg j. They excel in egg-producing
qualities, but are smaller In size. You se
there's science In this chicken business.
They weed out the poor layers and put
them Into dressed poultry and breed from
the best layers. Just as your horseman
breeds for speed with bis fastest sires and
Then you take the birds which are
raised almost entirely for market, or
'dressed poultry purposes.' and you about
finish the classes. Except, to be sure,
the 'game chickens' raised for, as I was
saying, there you have it. Now a small
breed of hens will lay a big enough egg.
and they can be fed for less than a big
breed. The advocates of the bigger stock
point out. and justly, that they get more
meat on their birds and thus offset the
advantage, by having more meaf to sell.
'The future of the poultry Industry is
simply immense here In Oregon and the
Northwest." he continued. "Profits are
much greater here than In the East and
' the Middle West, and while feed Is a
little higher, the cost of feed is vastly
more than overcome by the scale In
pro tit. Curious about chickens. A drop
or a rise In temperature will affect their
egg-producing powers, and an even tetn
" perature, even If warm or cold, does not
" bother them. Roup Is the disease we
breeders fear most- Sounds like 'croup.'
doesn't It- It's a sort of diphtheria
Caused by a cold, and neglect. Odd im
pression the public has that chickens eat
gravel to grind their food with. Lord
bless you. the gastric juices In a chicken's
craw will dissolve broken glass. Fact,
- aa rare as you live. A chicken eats
gravel so that the gravel may dissolve
and become mineral food. They dissolve
gravel artificially and ' feed it to them,
and get the same results.
Steady Demand for Product.
- "Chickens have to get mineral food,
and shells, lime, etc., to assist in form
ing the shell. There's 'a steady demand
for the best in eggs and poultry. Why,
I went Into one of the largest markets
In Portland and saw chickens marked 17
cents a pound, dressed. I totd the pro
prietor I could furnish him some fowls,
but not at that price, even If it was the
price to the buyers. Erlng 'em In, said
he. I fetched in some of my milk-fed
soft oats-feed birds, dressed, fat, young,
tender and heavy. What do you want
for'em, he says? Twenty-two cents, says
I. Give me all you've got. lie said. He
sold them for 30 cents a pound snd
couldn't begin to ' supply the demand.
PeVple will pay liberally for 'gilt-edged'
chickens where they kick at skinny and
poorly-fed fowls-. Good stoik brings good
produce. Mind that. And Western
chicken men are alive to that fact."
Talking with Miss Moore, the repre
sentative of Commercial Poultry, the mid
Weatern magaxlne authority, she raid
the show was the "most suo-esM n1 she
had attended In the live years of her
experience In the Northwest. Better
grades, more birds, and a keener in
terest. "People can make more money that
way than anyway else." said Miss Moore,
"when they have a small area of ground,
aad cannot engage In hard manual labor.
It's a great field for women, and they are

IX ROl'GH GAME.
Both Teams Suffer Frequent Penal

Score of ?8 to 18.
In what was, perhaps, the roughest
game, of basketball seen In Portland this
year, tho local association five was victor
last night over the Y. M. C. A. team from
Tacoma by . the score of 38 to 13. The
game was rough from the start and
called for repeated penalties. Prompt
wor k by Referee McCord. of Multnomah
Club, helped to keep the game In check,
but McCord was unable to call more than
half the fouls Incurred.
Sweeney took the place of Young, the
regular center. In the hrst half. Muckle
playing guard. While Morton, of Tacoma,
had a. little the better of the toss-up,
Sweeney more than outset this by gen
eral play. His passing was beyond re
proach and he played, with the exception
pf Hartman, quite the cleanest game of
the evening. Young, who- made his ap
nearance at the beginning of the second
half, also' played a good game, although-
nbt free from fouls.
Fter Tacoma, Morton 'and Kent piayea
a good game and Morton was less guilty
than his fellows of "roughing." There
was little evidence of team work among
the men from the Sound and they were
unable to make the simplest baskets. Out
of the numerous fouls called on Portland,
Cook and Mills were guilty of only two
apiece, while Hartman, for Portland, in
the first half, made good nine out of ten
In basket-throwing, Morton made sev
eral very pretty long shots and had ex
ceedingly poor luck in several others,
while Cook, consluered to be the Tacoma
star, failed tO'justify his reputation, miss
ing both fouls, throws and baskets.

of the matter.

His agilHv has assisted Multnomah in a
