"ALFALFA PALACE" AT
NORTHWEST LAND SHOW
Demonstrators Will Show Its Value
as a Stock Food and Its Success
ful Growth In the North
How the wonderful alfalfa
plant has been brought to Amer
ica, acclimated in zones further
north than it has ever known be
fore, together with graphic de
monstrations as to its value as a
food for stock, will be shown at
the Northwestern land show in
December, in a great exhibit to
be known as the "Alfalfa Pal
ace." This exhibit will be installed to
show samples of alfalfa seed and
samples of the hay, various
methods of curing, the mixing of
it with corn and other grains.
Finally, its effect when used with
grain to make a balanced ration
The Northwestern railway
lines have arranged to install this
exhibit and it will be made es
pecially interesting to the North
ern states. Some states have
imagined that the legume plant
known as alfalfa would not be
adapted to this climate, but the
plant breeders at the experi
ment stations have stretched the
alfalfa belt northward and one
of the features of the show in
St. Paul next December will be
to show the success with which
alfalfa is produced in the North.
DRINKING CUP LAW
Passenger Argues With Train Crew
and Finally Calls In Services
of an Attorney
When John Stead of Ainslee,
Mo., discovered that the Oregon
Trunk railway had failed in what-
he thought was its duty to pro
vide drinking cups for its pas
sengers on the Deschutes Valley
train last week, John "went up
in the air" like an aeroplane
seeking an altitude record.
"What kind of a dash blank
road is this, anyway," inquired
the man from Missouri. The
brakeman tried to explain that
the Oregon legislature had seen
fit to pass a law prohibiting the
use of public drinking cups in
public places and on common
Not until the thirsty passenger
took up the subject with the con
ductor, called in the services of
lawyer who happened to be on
the train, and finally was per
suaded to purchase a paper cup
from the train news agent, was
his ire subsided.
Lewis H. Irving and A. W.
Culp returned Wednesday night
from a two day's fishing trip on
the Deschutes with 116 fine trout,
the largest weighing nearly three
pounds. They fished from South
Junction to Mecca on the river, a
distance of about five miles.
