Oregon dairy cattle are In demand

Versity extension service with W. H.
legan, chief of the dairying at the

Through its director, Paul V.
'aris, the extension service has been
sked to help locate stock for sale
ind up to the qualification. Thf
ounty agents will help owners of

P. M. Brandt, chief of dairying
t the college station, has also been
iked to lend a hand in locating
iwners of such stock.
Oregon dairy stock in general is
ble to measure up to the standards,
ind the cows in the cow-testing as-
oclatlons show a consistent margin
iver the requirement of 3to pounds
f fat a year per cow. Many of the
best Oregon stock has been tuber-
ulin tested and found to be low in
tercentage of reactors.
Of nearly 50.000 cows tested by
he Oregon veterinary department
ind the federal bureau of animal in
lustry in cooperation with the exten
sion service, fewer than 1 i per cent
reacted. The California demand Is
for cows t. b. tested in herds under
tale or federal supervfaion, and for
ows in cow testing associations.
If not in supervised herds each ani
mal in the herd must be tuberculin
tested and if more than 10 per cent
react no animal will be taken from

AS THE lights went down a hush
of exited aney settled over, the
audience a1 the theater. Most of tin-
faces were alitfhl with anticipation,
hut the old man and WomttU in the
back seats of the first balcony looked
very grave, They were country poo
pie, and they had never been to a the
ater before.
"Please God, It Isn't true, Mary I"
said the old man.
His wife pressed his hand gently.
She knew how deeply he felt upon the j
It was, for those simple minds, a :
tragic situation. Their daughter Lucy
had left the farm three years before.
And some meddlesome busybody had
tOld the old people that she was ac
tually an actress
To their simple minds there could
have been nothing more degrading.
The stage wus the acme of all that
was vilest In the world. They bad
come up to town, without announcing
their intentions, and were now await
ing the rising of the curtain upon
the first act of "The .Merchant of Ven
ice." Portia does not appenr at ti e begin
ning of that play. And before she had
come on the stage the old people were
staring in wonder at the niagnlllcenee
of the setting. More than that. In
place of the Immorality which they
had expected to find Inculcated, they
round a story, so gripping, so pathetic
that they were spellbound.
Rut when Portia appeared they
leaned forward with a revival of their
old terror. Portia was Lucy ! Miss
Margaret Lake, n he wh billed. It

There was almost an expression of
pride, but there was also bewilder

developments with bated breath. Antl
the life-long horror of the stage was
forgotten. And when the great trial
scene came on. and Shylock sharpened
his knife, and things looked hail for
his enemy, tears eume Into their eyes.
"He'll get him. Mary!" whispered
her husband!
"Sli-sb !" rang out the nngry whis
pers; antl he subsided Into his seat
in dismay st the storm he had raised.
But when Portia came In, attired as

There were no lonzer whispers of
