! The comprehensive marketing of 16,
000,000 dozens of eggs and S1.000 dozen
if poultry by the Association of Poultry
Producer of. Petaluma Is what ha
' made Petaluma world-famous as a poul
try center. -
Aside from the question aw to whether
! , Petaluma has climatic or other advan
itagea of nature which rnaKe poultry
I- breeding more profitable and prolific In
that district ttyin in any other district
1nth United States, the fact remains
! that without a most complete and effi
cient marketing organization nothing
j,like the quantity.' of poultry products
produced in the Petaluma district could
i be marketed successfully, and nothing
'like fair prices could be secured if the
j 2 producers of the district were all sell-i
ting in acute competition with each other
for the San Francisco market
, Gresham FoUowlsf Salt
Gresham is likely to prove the "Petal
uma of Oregon if the plans of Countyi
Acnt Hall and his confreres in the
poultry businens materialise.
It is . therefore of Interest to examine
4 Into the, methods of the Petaluma Poul-
try Producers association, and, if neces
sary, adopt the same idea for this state.
The Petaluma association was, organ
ized under ' the direction of State Mar
ket -Director Harris ,-Weitistock; as were

Two aristocrats' of the show ring, but also members of a family? of

I The capital stock paid In Is low J15B,
000. The: association, which Is strictly.
cooperative, is capitalized on the basis
of one $10 share of stock for eyery 1000
hens owned (one cent a hen)., A poul
try man owning less than 1000 hens buys
one ahare ; a poultryman with 10,000
hens owns 10 shares, and so on. .
At the same time the poultry producer
enters- into a produce sale agreement
with the association, agreeing to market
aH his egga through the association; for
a. commission not to exceed two cents
per dozen and 10 cents per dozen for
poultry. 1 '
Tram. RnTrt CaeUv
The eggs of all the producers are sold
collectively and remittances made week
ly' to the producer.
"jThe association grades the eggs and
TKvultrv. thus 'further relievins "the poul
tryman, not only of the trouble of find-,
ing a market, but also of Jhe incidentals
to -marketing. -
The principal -achievement of the asso
ciation is, however, in its storage ware
houses, which enables It to hold the
. eggs from time to time when necessary,
so that if is a possibility of in
crease in market prices the producer,
and not the speculator In eggs, will get
the benefit.
!ln this way thousands upon thousands
of dollars are annually .saved tothe
poultry producers wMch would! not be
possible If the tooultrymen had' to put
their eggs- on the market, no matter
what the price, without the facilities
the association offers in the way of
storage, and holding price rvalues to
within reasonable limits. . ; - '

Quarantine Against j
Foreign Cereals ; Is
Being Considered
Prohibition or restriction of move
merits of .wheat, rye, - barley t oats and
rice , to, continental United States from
Austria, Japan, India, Italy, France,
Germany, Belgium. Great Britain, Ire
land and Brazil is believed by the United
State department of agriculture , to be
necessary on . account of - the prevalence
in those countries, of the flag -smut and
take-all diseases. . i ;-v
The former affects wheat alone,: and
the latter -wheat. . rye. barley,:, oats and
rice. A hearing, to 'determine whether
or not a quarantine Is necessary, will be
held at 10 o'clock, March 2a, in, the of
fices of the federal horticultural board,
Washington. -
Both of the diseases are very' destruc
tive. Flag emut affects the leaf blades,
leaf sheaths, stems: and sometimes the
spikes of wheat. Usually every 6 hoot
is affected, the leaves wither and the
spike la frequently replaced by a mass
of twisted leaves. The spores are car
ried on the seed and live over In the
soil. ; ;
The take-all ! disease, known also as
whitehead and -footrot, attacks the roots
and base of the plants, rotting the sroots
and blackening the base of the stems.
Young wheat plants speedily wither and
die. -Older ones may survive, but rarely
produce grain. Hecvy. ibsses have ' been;
sustained In,, all countries where this
disease occurs.

Gresham Could Be Oregon's Du
: plicate- of Famous Petaluma
Poultry District-
Poultrymen, representing about 12,000
head of poultry, assembled at the library
hall at Gresham to discuss the organ
ization of the Oregon Poultry Producers'
a .The . meeting was called by County
Agent S. B. Hall after U. I Upson of
the bureau of animal industry of the U.
S. department' of agriculture bad made
several personal calls upon poultrymen.
Lack of state leadership in matters
of this kind id apparently to be deplored ;
but. In spite of the fact that poultrymen
in the Gresham district being in appar
ently a "transitory" state from being
farmers witSi a poultry flock to special
ised poultrymen the slogan, "Gresham
the Petaluma of Oregon. seems likely
to be an accomplished fact before very
long. .
TJ. 1. Upson presented full details of
the proposed organisation to the;poul-'
trymen present Confidence In the un
known future possibilities of cooperation
serves as always to preclude large-membership
Joining- In general meeting, but
those present felt that the majority of
poultrymen will ultimately strongly sup
port the organisation.
A number of poultrymen signed op
to become members of the organisation
after the meeting adjourned.
The experience of Gresham in the
number of members secured at this first
meeting is the same as that of other co
operative associations at their first
meetings. The producers want time to
think it over ; but. as the great, possibil
ities dawn upon each individual and if
proper steps are taken before the ground
has grown cold under their feet 90 per
cent of of all present will ultimately
join in such commendable enterprises.
The poultry producers of Gresham are
in the somewhat enviable position, be
cause of their proximity to Portland,
their primary market of securing a
somewhat higher price for their stock
than do those lees favorably situated.
The same has, always been true of
Petaluma, and it is because of this favor
able situation that there is alii the more
reason to organize into a tight coopera
tive association for efficient marketing,
because if this organization is not per
fected, a watertight organization, which
will alwaya be able to keep Gresham in
the preeminent position to which it is
entitled by climatic and natural situa
tion; some other district will take the
opportunity and Grestoam poultry pro
ducers will be left out In the cold.

Provlsi4n for .. keeping young ; chicks
warm is always required. It may not be
needed on the hottest days or during
the heat of ! any bright day, but the
chicks should always have heat avail
able If they want It. j
In extremely hot weather special care
Is necessary to prevent chicks from be
ing overheated by exposure 'to the sun,
confinement where ventilation is bad,
or overcrowding. The brooder should
be under shelter, with good circulation
of air around, it, nd the number of
chicks should not be greater than it will
accommodate comfortably under hot
weather conditions. V
Skim-milk, l either sweet or sotfr.- and
buttermilk are especially valuable feeds
In hot weather, making the diet lighter
without reducing its nutritive value. The
mUk should be given as a drink In ves
sels, from which chicks tan take it with
out soiling one another with it. The
use of milk does not do away with the
use of water, .which should be given as
usual. ' ''''. r- "

-Special to The Journal ,
The first poultry show given by the
Spokane Poultry Breeders association of
Bpekane, .Wash.,' has now passed into
history,. Spokane had not held a winter
show for several years, hut Is well
known as a hotbed of poultry fanciers
who decided it was time for a rousing.
big show and they surely had it.
An entirely new. organisation was
formed, with A. V." Davis, a well known
attorney and Red breeder, as" itsr presi
dent; Dr. William Falkenreck. vice
president i J. R. Walker, secretary, and
I M. Varney treasurer.
Competition Is Keea
On account of the prevailing epidemic
and' Quarantine nearly all the smaller
town shows had to. be abandoned, so all
eyes were turned toward Spokane where,
fortunately, the show date had been
placed late enough so the quarantine
had been raised. An entry of something
over 1000 birds was the result. Birds
from 'all. over the Northwest, and; rep
resenting -many varieties. including
Rhode Island Reds, single and rose
comb, which were the largest class, with
18 birds present. Jl number . of fine
birds were shipped from various points,
noticeable among . them being some
handsome young single combs from T,
Bowen, Grand Forks, B. C, whose first
pullet. won alsothe Spokesman Review
cup for the' best female in the show,
ail varieties. , -
V Oregon Man Wins
Vernal Forrest, McMInnvlIle. Or., won
