rOUTIiAXD, Fob. 4. On Decem
ber 6, 1917, a special Inquiry was
mailed to a selected list of stockmen
in all parts of the state, asking (or
numbers ot the various kinds of farm
animals on hand December 1, 1916,
and December 1, 1917. About 400
replies were received, tho tabulation
of which showed no material decrease
in any class of farm animals except
Boats. Tho 400 replies reported ex
actly tho samo number of milk cows
tfor tho two dates, viz., 3554. Tho
number of "other cattle" and horses
showed a material Increase in 1917.
A somowhat larger number of sheep
was reported for 1917, and the num
ber ot swlno reported was less by a
very small margin.
During tho month ot January,
191S, a special food surrey was made.
The schedules asked for tho number
ot tho various kinds of live stock on
hand on December 31, 1916, and De
comber 31, 1917. About 600 replies
-were- received, tho tabulation ot
which gave results agreeing very
closely with those ot tho spoclal live
stock Inquiry of December 1. A study
ot tho results of these two separate
inquiries seems to warrant the follow
A rather limited shipping demand
for this class of stock during tho past
year has had a tendency to Increase
numbers on hand, oven in the faca of
n considerable Increase In tho use ot
tho farm tractor, and a largo Increase
in tho cost per head of keeping.
Reports Xot True.
During recent months there have
been frequent reports ot a very con
siderable decrease In the number ot
milking cows. Dut tho results ot tho
two Inquiries do not show such to bo
tho case. The total number of milk
cows as reported on the farms of tho
1000 persons returning schedules Is
7657 for December, 1917, and 75S6
for December, 1916, showing a slight
increase for 1917.
Portland stock yard receipts do not
indlcato much movement of dairy
cows for slaughter. Occasionally
good dairy cows como to the yards.
ibut they are very generally purchased
by parties who put them Into dairy
service again. There Is of course
some slaughter of inferior animals,
but this is only natural as there Is
much testing of dairy herds with con
sequent disposal of the "boarders."
And it should be borne in mind that
young dairy animals are coming on

demand for condensed milk has been

as the advance in most other food
Hay Prices Lou rr.
All reports Indicate that tho pres
ent supply of stock cattle Is In excess
of the number on hand a year ago.
An unusually open fall and winter
lias made it practical for cattlemen
to retain considerable numbers of
stock cattlo that otherwise must have
been sold owing to scarcity of hay.
Hay prices aro now reported as being
materially lower than several weeks
Tho various sources of Information
relative to numbers ot sheep agree
very closely, and Indicate that num
bers on hand aro practically the samo
as a year ago. Dut the condition of
tho flocks Is materially better than
at this tlmo last year. The samo may
bo said of cattlo In general.
County assessors' reports for 1917
showed a largo decrease In numbers
of swlno as compared with a year ago.
This is verified by the Portland stock
yards receipts for 1917, which show
that tho receipts of hogs of Oregon
origin In 1917 wero only about 75
per cent pf tho receipts of 1910. High
prices prevailing for all grain and
mill feeds aro rather discouraging to
tho hog raiser. However the reports

Duck Kgjr For Cooking.
(Hy Mrs. F. Montgomery.)
A common Idea with most pcoplo,
whoro thoy havo not been educated
to tho contrary. Is that duck eggs
aro not good for eating. I bellevn
most ot us nro quick to bellova any
thing seen In print ns perfectly true,
and I am sorry to say that much ot
tho stuff said and written about duck
eggs Is pure theory or Imagination
and not tho result ot real Investigation.
Ot course, somo of us aro cranks
about finding out for oursolvcs and
aro willing to try most anything
once. Thcroforo tho only wnyfor
mo to know what I know, wns to
test out for myself. Many know
somo of our most famous chefs uso
nothing but duck eggs for cooking.
To fry or poach duck eggs they
must be thoroughly opaque, other

not Just right; to scramble, thoy aro
Just as fine as a largo lion's egg.
When used In cakes, you will find
the cako much richer and much ulcer
than when hen's oggs aro used.
Somo claim they will not whip
well, which I find to bo untrue. Tho
whites will whip until they stand up
In a ported point. Tho yolk, It Is
true, doos not whip up as light as
hen eggs, duo no doubt, to the oxtra
rlchnoss, a vory good fault, I think
you will admit.
For making custards duck oggs aro
Ideal. As tlno a custard as anyone
over nte, I mado from geeso eggs.
,nd when usod for mayonnaise, that
Is whore thoy shine.
Last, hut not loast, and I suppose
tho most Important thing In tholr
fnvor, they aro so much larger than
tho averago lion egg that ono dozen
duck oggs nro equal to 10 lion eggs,
