v Hew Establishment on North
Commercial Serves Public
in Unique Way.
'.. The new Busick store on North
Commercial street; - was ; opened
Friday; with . thousands ot ' Salem
people passing In throagh, r Its
ddors to, inspect wi-a -lias come
to toe; a real Salem Institution. But
: the new store is a far finer de
. velopment of the old Busick store
idea than either of the older
'stores; The 'company hag Operat
ed two stores in the city, the lar
ger one being at State and Com
merclal, and the other two blocks
..north. The latter will be retained
for a while, but the Murphy cor
ner building at State street is re
leased. Busicks had held It for
fire, 'years, until this week, i
-' Self -Serving Developed
i The store is a development of
the self-serving plans adopted for
; the other Busick stores at Albany,
Corvallis : and Woodburn," only
that it is larger and 'finer than
any of the others. The general
idea is to allow the customers to
, help .themselves, the clerks only
doing the wrapping op, if the eus-
torn er, .wishes it so. The counters
are, in the center of the big room,
so that there could be. a clerk
. tying parcels from each side; li
clerks could . operate .' at . once,
wrapping . parcels that the cus
tomers pick out. ' f
-' The goods ar& all marked in
'plain prices, so that ,'the customer
. can pick-out exactly what j be
wants by the price tag. f The bulk
goods are to be shown by sample,
. and wrapped in standard pack
ages; such as' sugar for, 25; cents,
., S 0 cents, and a dollar: beans for
.- the same sized packages and so on
.where -there are good standard
- price units that cover the tisual
purchases. : These will be prepar
ed during the slack hours. of the
day, so that when the rush comes
they will, be y ready. There are
. two doors,; and a constant stream
of customers can be coming: and
v going,4 without possible - conges
i tlon. . -
Public Trusted .
' "We ard not afraid to trust the
public . anywhere in our store,"
t said William Busick, the working
- genins of the establishment. "We
mlgh lose a little stuff by pecu-
!- latlons, but it win not ever! ap-
- p roach the tax of extra clerk hire
that the public must pay. for. By
this present arrangement, allow
ing the public to help serve itself
in the interest of saving time of
waiting, 'two clerks can do the
work' of three in the old way, and
the saving of the buying public's
time rims Into astonishing fig-
. u res in the course of a year. This
qukk and accurate service we ire
going to make the supreme fea
ture of tbastore. 'iv f ; .

counters- themselves, are f on

Fine Offices Built '.
One of the, finest offices In the
state of Oregon has been built up
overhead, in the middle , of the
store. The high ceiling of -the
main room ? makes it possible to
double-deck this office .portion.
The office has : an : almost solid
north glass ' frontage '. ; on Court
street, and will "be a delightful
place, to work' in. ; - f.- ! "' . ,
The company does a consider
able wholesale business, handling
the goods from here for, the other
three stores, 'as well as. selling to
other grocers." The back half of
the building is the wholesale de
partment, and they also have the
upstairs of the building over the
rear half of the store. An eleva
tor will give them the easy use of
this valuable room for the whole
sale trade. i
. . . . s
: Growth Phenomenal . i
' The Busicks have built up their
whole train of stores, from noth
ing within the past few years.
There are six of the family in, the
new baiem store; three . on the
main floor, two in the office, and
one in the wholesale department.
They have been working along
for. this big new store for a long
time, planning . the : - details that
should make it a rear Innovation
for the public benefit in the way
of service." Now that they have
the new place, they ; expect to
make the innovation justify Itself
in price and service. ;

crowd that filled the building to

if a larger and a more persistent
interest in. the poultry industry.
He said poultry ranks ; third ' in
volume among all the industries
of Hhe United Statesj, corn coming
second, and dairying first.
He urged greater study and
better methods,' and cautioned
against new men in the industry
becoming discouraged. If one is
'o get out of the poultry industry.
into .what industry shall he go,
that promises '. better returns for
rhard and intelligent and interest
ing work?
He said Oregon Is now shi pi
ping 75 cars annually of eggs to
the eastern markets; mostly to
the city, of New York; whereas,
up to six-years ago this state was
a large importer of eggs.
Many Questions Asked -
Professor Lunn, , after his - ad-
dress, turned the meeting into an
Informal ' one for the asking and
answering of , questions.' There
were many questions. Below are
fust a few samples.
What' is a good substitute for
kale for green feed? Answer, root
crops, ; such as mangels. One
poultryman makes a specialty of
feeding mangels with success. As
a last resort, feed clorer or al
falfa hay. Moisten the hay.
Whit is ' the Importance of
green feed? The answer is, as the
studies of Dr. McCollum have
shown, that breeding stock, espe
cially needs much green feed; es
pecially for the vitamines. Green
barley Is used much 'in the Peta
luma. district. Potatoes are ot
little yalue. They are principally
starch. : Even when fed boiled,
mixed with other1 feed, they are
generally too fattening.
How about! dry oats? .? Answer,
they are of ' U very -high, Talu;
but ' they must bet oats of good
quality. Just now, at the college,
corn and wheat are being fed; fo
oats, because good oats cannot

it in the "summer season. j
Some of -the biggest poultrymen
of the Puget sound country aTe
putting In herds of cows, to get
the usev of skim milk for their
chickens. r.
About lightr Professor Lunn
says the college chickens are not
'lighted. But he is himself a
poultryman; his poultry farm be
ing just west of the . college
grounds. He uses a lighting sys
; tem so as to ; give the chickens a
longer working day in the Winter
season. So far, it is largely ex
perimental. No one can say, yet,
Just how valuable Is the system.
Poultrymen will know more about
this a few years hence. He turns
on the " electri lights at 5 : 3 0 In
the morning.
About heavy nreeds, for meat?
When some one finds a breed that
is heavy and yet lays white eggs,
perhaps there will ' be more ten
dency to change. But' as long, as
the principal 1 markets ' demand

The. Auburn district, Just east
of : Salem," Is a budding corner . of
an Oregon Petaluma. There are
perhaps 25 farmers there with
200 hens and upward;. up to 630
and more, r And larger flocks
planned. 'There are perhaps 12,-
000 to 15,000 hens within two
miles of the Auburn school house.
There will. .be double that num

nings of the poultry Industry there
on a' commercial scale were made
