Willis E. Brirtdley Writes on County
Displays at Portland.
Portland, Ore., ha proved to the world,
or at least to that generous part of the
world which is visiting the Lewis and
Clark exposition this summer, that the
hostess state has agricultural resources
which place it in the front rank of com
monwealths that are dependent for their
wealth on the richness of the soil As is
natural, Oregon occupies the command
ing position in the Agriculture and Hor
ticulture building, the grain and forage
crops displays being arranged about a
central pyramid, which towers toward
the lofty dome that crowns the build
ing. The pyramid contains a represen
tative showing, and has been much ad
mired. Ceres, the goddess of grains,
done in staff, occupies the top of the

display is the one first encountered on
entering the building from the south,
and a big mounted elk constitutes the
most striking feature. Harney has gath
ered a display that attracts much in

animals in the cases which line the
walls, all killed and mounted since the
