am quite stratified with
the interest shown in the City Beautiful
contest for the first year, and am quite
sure that if it is conducted another
year the interest will double, for many
persons will enter their places which
did not take part this year. It is par
ticularly gratifying to notice the in
terest taken by. the schools and fire
men. " ' ' Special I-rlzea Olrrnd.
"They both deserve much praise for
the work they accomplished. We made
special prizes in each district for va
cant lots, and the prizes were suffi
ciently large to reimburse the winner
for much of the expense he would so
to in keeping- his-vacant lot clean, but
I regret to say that few owners took
advantage of our. generous offer. By
another year they will recognize the
l-enents of our plan, and I am quite
confident that in 1916 the number of
entries will be doubled.
."The checks for prizes will be mailed
to the winners in a few days. I de
sire to thank all those who showed
their interest in the movement bv en
term . their places, and also c'xtend
thanks to the various members of the
committees and the judges who have
made the City Beautiful contest so sat

station, finished her first year's record
October 30 with 301 eggs laid. The

Her esrss were white and of good aver
age size. She weisrhs about four pounds
bue is one of a flock of 60 of similar
breeding that will averasre about 220
essrs each. A sister of this hen finished
hei- year with ' 285 esiis. Her grand
mother was C54J. which two years as?o
made the remarkable record of 91
eii-fts. The mother of K115 was B42,
which recently finished four years' lay
ing, or 48 consecutive months, with
a record of 831 eggs. This is a world's
record for four years. The highest
four-year record heretofore was 819
eggs, made by another hen at the Ore
gon station. The sire of 10115 was a
son of C543. . .
The station has manv other good
layers from this family of heavy layers
The photographs of Klla and C543
were both taken when the hens finished
their year's laying and show their
plumage a little the worse for wear.
Both are active, vigorous hens. E115

Title l-'Irst Kstahlished.
This is the second 300-egg hen that
has been produced at the station. The
first was lady Macduff. C521, which
made a record of 303 eggs two years
ago. Lady Macduff has the distinction
of being tiie first 300-egg hen that has
been discovered anywhere. It is not
presumed to say there were not other
hens that have laid as many eggs, but
there were no records of individual
performances reaching 300 eggs.
These two hens. C543 and IT2I re
ceived great publicity and it is no doubt
true mat no other hens in history have
been more talked about than those two
throughout the United States and the
about one of these hens. A great many
of the leading magazines of. this coun
try and other countries, practically all
the farm and poultry journals of the
united States, devoted much apace to
tne nens. t ntil a week airr. the r.r-
formance of Lady Macduff, so far as
records made in laying contests and
at experiment stations were concerned,
had not been equaled in the two years
Kastern Hen Hichrr.
The day after E113 finished her year
with 301 eggs a hen at the Delaware
experiment station entered -fn a laying
competition conducted under the aus
pices of the North American, of Phila
delphia, made a remarkable record of
314 eggs. Lady Macduff therefore re
linquishes the seat of honor to . the
Delaware champion as ' the greatest
layer in one year of laying.
Lady. Macduff still retains the honor,
if not a greater honor than that of the
Delaware hen, of not only being the
first 300-egg hen. but of being the
greatest producer of any known hen,
whether considered on a two-year
basis o- three-year basis. Her remark
able laying proclivities did not leave
her in her first year. At the end of
-4 months of laying she had 512 eggs
to her credit. Her 36 months of lay
ing will soon be passed and she now
has 670 eggs to her credit for three
years. Her year is not up. but she ap
parently has finished her laying for
season. These are the trrentot

It will be interesting to compart
these records made at the station with
other and former records in laying
competitions and experiment stations.
Previous to the record made by the
Delaware hen the highest hen record
made at any laying contest or at any
public institution in this country was
2St eggs. There have been laying con
tests conducted in Connecticut, Missouri,
Pennsylvania and other places for a
number of years under state control.
Breeders from all parts of the United
States and from foreign countries have
entered their best layers in these con
tests. Outside of the Delaware record
this year, none of the other contests
have records anywhere near equaling
more than a dozen that have been made
at the Oregon station. .
To appreciate fully the importance
of these high records it should be un
derstood that the average production
of all the hens of the' United States,
according to the last census report,
was SO eggs a hen. These records,
therefor, draw attention to the tre
mendous possibilities for increased egg
production in the American hen

The girls were - arrested after a
dainty handkerchief left in Frank
Fernald's room, across the hall from
their own quarters at 7 North Ninth
street, had been traced by its perfume.
Miss Scheel admitted pawning the
watch, for which she received f-l. Miss
Johnson confessed to' the theft, but
denied finding as much money as was
alleged when she rifled Fernald's trous
eVs as he slept.
The felony charge of larceny from a
dwelling had been placed against both
girls, but on the motion of Deputy
District Attorney Deich was changed
to simple larceny, upon the assurance
that the young women, would plead
guilty to that. Public Defender Robin
son appeared for the girls.
Miss Scheel came to Portland several
months ago from a small town in Ore
gon, and promised the court that she
would return to her folks If released.
Her case was continued for sentence.
Miss Johnson is known to the Bureau
of Municipal Protection for Women as
rather "wild," but her case was con
