Seen Through The
(My H. K. Ilrowue) . '
The old Scotch adajre, "It's many a
rnlckle makes a inuckle" can well be
upplled to the average farmer on the
I'acldc coast, or the methods of rais
ing poultry on the Oregon farm. There
are very few people who realize the
vast amount of poultry and eKR uel
In this dtute alone. The principle frenh
meat of the (ai mer FpemB to be poul
try anil egi?s, because a chicken can
nlways be had fresh without the ne
rcxHily of an ice box. I am told thai
the poultry out put in the Willamette
valley In nearly us great as the pro
duction of beef and pork, and rilne
tenlhH of thiM Is ruiHed upon the farm
In itmall amounts. There Is no meal
that will britip n better price the year
around and that will give such con
Blunt ret urns.
1 he Wife's Slinrft
The average farmer thinks it is a
waste of time and feed to pay any at
tention to the poultry; as a general
consequence they are generally poorly
cared for and poorly housed.
llefure the days of creameries the
ckk, poultry and butter constituted the
Wife's share of the (arm products to
(uinlHh her household supplies, conse
quently the cow and chicken got what
nothing else would cut, or what they
could find for themselves, us It was
considered the height of folly to give
Iced of any vnluo to them, simply' to
fill the wife's pocket book. The prod
uct wan curried to the country store to
be bartered for goods. The creamery
und cheese fuctory have turned the
Cow over to the other side of the
house now ,and she Is fairly well cared
for under most circumstance. JX.it
the poultry 'still remains In the wo
man's puimesslon In inoft cases, often
times to roost In the trees or on the
wood pile and feed with the pigs what
they cannot get by m'rutehlng (or, and
Ihe farmer, unless ltla 'wife .has the
Rood fortune to sell for cash and the
proceeds come In very handy to pay his
tuxes, will denounce the whole lot as
a nuhmnce, and will postlvely declare
they cut their hearix off every year,
A man who had made a study of
poultry raising (or some time said a
few days ago that, when the poultry of
Oregon receives tho name care and at
tention that Is given to the stock on
Ihe farm, a long step will be reached
toward the success of husbandry.,
Poultry raising is u business In Itself
nnd Is a profitable business, too, If
h lulled judiciously.
A TRAVESTY ON JUSTICE.
It is a strange travesty on justice not to inflict the full pen
alty of the law upon "Bluebeard" Harvey, the Los Angeles multi
wife murderer and arch criminal who admits having married oyer
twenty women for their money and having in cold blood killed nine
In refurn for his confession, immunity was promised by the
district attorney, but the web of circumstantial evidence had al
ready enmeshed Harvey and confession was superfluous. It .was
only because he realized that the noose waa tightening about his
neck, that the trembling and cowardly wretch related the story
of his crimes.
The net result of this'official compromise with justice is to
punish the people of California by burdening them for the guard
ing, clothing, feeding and care of this moral monster for an in
definite period of years. The poor but honest man may suffer
hardship and hunger and have no place to lay 'hi head, but this
beast in human form is assured of comfort and provision as long
as his worthless heart beats, and without effort on his part
This degenerate can never become a useful member of society
which he burdens. He is not bothered with a .conscience to re
proach him. He married and murdered to secure money for a life
of ease and now the state provides him this easy existence as a
reward of merit and relieves him of the necessity of more mar
riages and murders to secure the wherewithal. - !
Had this modern "bluebeard" been apprehended in Oregon,
the confession would not have been forthcoming, for there would
have been no fear of the gallows to.extort it. The severest pen
alty he could have incurred would have been a pension for life.
All of which emphasizes the need of restoring capital punish
ment as a penalty for murder. As ldng as society breeds blue
beards and degenerates of his type, just so long will the gallows
be needed as a protection to society. While not a preyentative
of crime, the noose is certainly a deterant. '.

Rusty Wren's cousin. Long Bill,

Black Creek. Although everybody
called him "Long Bill." like Rusty
Wren he was actually short and

Both former leislators declared that they refused to be bound
to any program or be hampered by instructions from any self
constituted body of the people's guardians, and that they must be
free as legislators to do what they regarded as best for the wel
fare of the state. Other candidates followed along the same lines
and the announcement of the league's ticket is awaited with in

ience. The others are well known citizns of the county and their
relative worth in the legislature can be judged by their relative
value to the community as citizens. It is apparent that coercion
or dictation from any organized body is superfluous and proper
subject for resentment from worth-while candidates.

that was entirely too small to please
Long Bill Wren. So no one ever saw
him around the (arm buildings.
For a leng time Rusty had neither
seen nor heard o( his cousin, when
one day Jolly, Robin knocked at his

Rusty's door!). "I won't come in, (or
I merely want to give you a message.
Old Mr. Crow came to the orchard
today and he asked me to deliver an
invitation from your cousin who
lives near Black Creek."
"That's Long Bill!" Rusty Wren
Jolly Robin nodded. "He's going to
have a party," he explained. "And he1
wants you to come to it." i
"When will it take place?" Rusty
"Tomorrow!" said Jolly Robin.
"It's rather short notice," Rusty
"Mr. Crow has been keeping the
message (or you for some time," Jollyj
Robin explained. "He said he thought;
It would be more of a surprise If youi
didn't know about the party too
"We'll be there, anyhow," Rusty's
wife interrupted behind her hus
band's back. She had been listen

Robin told her. "This Is a man's

"You may tell old Mr. Crow that

Soon Jolly Robin said he must be

wife went out to Bake a sail.
Mrs. Rusty did not 'urge him tOj

Rippling Rhymes r
It is seldom ills are single ; in a regiment they rise, and' our
scalding teardrops mingle with the tears of other guys. When a
blaze calls out the firemen, there'll be seven in a row, while the
bards and kindred lyremen chant the litany of woe. Now a tire
sustains a puncture, in a long cross-country run, and the driver, at
this juncture, knows his grief is but begun. Not a narasancr he'll
travel, but a tire is running flat; tacks and nails and chunks ofrcreaHe" ln the '"""'e of deputy war-
gravel all contributing to that. To the morals undermining are
such grievous things as these, and his language, hot and shining

they give me more courage. Perhaps
everything will be all right now. If
John would only be to me what he

we strolled down the street ln a hunt
