Stock show to hold its ex
hibit in Portland which closed
season last Saturday evening
goes on record as the most suc
cessful exhibit of the kind ever
held in the city of Portland.
Truly it was an exceptional
show for variety of birds and
quality of stock. Lents had its
share in the honors. The Herald
last week gave a partial list of
winners, all that were known at

that the classes all were repre
sented by large numbers of
birds, and they were exception

test. To even have a favorable
mention in one out of 250 or 300
competitors is an enviable honor.
But there are other breeders in
this locality which should be
mentioned, even if they did not
enter into the show. There are
pure bred poultrymen all around
us and they are proving the
profitableness of handling that
class of stock. It may be that

not suddenly flash Into steam under
the influence of the great heat. It does
not even boll. It simply evaporates
quietly and slowly as It rolls about the
