For years Tolatol has lived the real
simple life. In Ms most rugged vig

and breast with Ice-cold water. This
latter ceremony the old man still keeps

Tolstoi has long been a strict veg
etarian holding to the belief that
man has no right to kill and consume
. living organism. Once when asked.
Is not a vegetable a living organism?"
he answered: "Well, la time science
may help us to such an extent that
we shall not find it necessary to kill
even a vegetable organism."
It was such Ideas as these that lead
the authorities to believe that Tolstoi
had decided "to end it all." He prob
ably realizes death Is near.
I'p to a few years ago the Tolstoi
family life had been ideal. It has been
said that Tolstoi's part at Tasnaia Po-
iana was rather that of a beloved and
honored guest than of master of ti.e
household. His wife and children al
ways worshipped him, so far as the
outside world has ever known, and his
neighbors say they always relieved
him of all possible annoyance and care.

Idedly, the Countess Sophia Tolstoi is
ne of those truly feminine heroines who
are cast Into the shadow by a brilliant

the less in more ways than need be

family which they have had; to bear
he entire responsibility of the house-
old and the business. There are few
better-informed women than she, few
better business women, few women who
re so clever and practical. It Is sole-
from her that the younger members

"Passage of' Proposed Ieglslatlon
Speaker Says Would Mean De
struction of State Dairy In
terests In Brief Time.
Warning the creamery and butter
men of the State of Oregon that the
"big Interests" were already organ
ized to force through the Legislature
a law favorable to oleomargarine, J.
W. Bailey. State Dairy and Food Com
missioner, aroused enthusiasm in a
speech delivered at the first meeting of
the .nssnclatlon, which was called to
order last night In the convention hall
of the Portland Commercial Club.
Mr. Bailey declared that if an oleo
margarine law was passed permitting
the packers to sell oleomargarine In
the state he would not give five cents
for the dairy Interest of Oregon.
"It will wipe you out of business. All
of you know what the oleomargarine
did a few years ago before the pas
sage of the National measure. Today
with the high price of butter the Gov
ernment tax on oleomargarine is a very
small matter. My advice is to get
Society's Aims Outlined.
There were Just 24 butter and cream
ery men In the hall when Paul V. Maris,
Deputy Commissioner, called the meet
ing to order. He outlined in a brief
speech the purposes and the alms of
the society as he viewed the opportun
ity. He believed that there were suffi
cient problems Identified with the but
ter and creamery business which would
justify the organization of such a so
ciety as all had in mind. There exist
ed, he said. In the state at the present
time a State Dairymen's Association
and it was doing a splendid work for
the advancement of the dairies of the
state and the securing of a better con
dition in the matter of sanitation.
It was also lending all Its aid to the
betterment of the herds and also to Im
prove the breeds. He believed that the
creamery men should work in conjunc
tion with the dairymen tor their suc
cess primarily depended upon the Im
provement of the dairy.
Co-operation Is Needed.
At the present stage of the indus
try, he said, the Improvement of the
herds depended upon the co-operation
of the creameryman and dairyman in
the eradication of the existence of tu
berclll. If It was to 'be the future pol
icy of the country in this direction
then the sooner the country got rid
of its tubercular cattle the better it
was for everyone. A fact which faces
all those engaged in the Industry, he
declared, was that no provision exists
by law for compensation of the loss to
the unfortunate dairyman.
"If the killing t tubercular cattle
Is solely for the benefit of the people,"
said Mr. Marls, "and of damage to the
dairyman It seems as If the cow owner
should receive pay for his loss from
the state treasury. Anyway it Is. a
question which can be taken up in your
meetings and disposed.
"The creamery interests of the coun
try," continued the speaker, "have
broadened very materially In the last
20 years. This has been brought about
by means of inventions, scientific
knowledge and keen competition.
There has been a great stride since our
forefathers went out in the corral and
milked in a dirty bucket the speckled
cow. Today we have the milking ma
chine, the separator and the cement-
floored barn. e can test the milK.
We know the number of organisms
necessary to make the milk wholesome.

very materially in bringing about the
proper solution of the multitude ot
problems which confront the industry
