Athena, Oregon, January 29 1926
According to the figures compiled
by the Traffic Department of the
Port of Portland Commission exports
of wheat for the first three weeks of
January 1926 amounted to 1,361,383
bushels valued at $2,033,139. This is
more wheat than was exported from
Portland during the firs t eight
months of 1925. The year 1925 was
rather peculiar in the export of wheat
for during the fall of 1924 most of
the crop of that year was shipped,
there being little for shipment during
the spring as is shown for the first
eight months of 1925. During the fall
of 1925 considerable wheat was ship
ped, but not nearly as much as the
previous year, due to the fact that a
considerable portion was and still is
held in the interior. Total wheat ex
ports from Portland therefore, dur
ing the year 1925 amounted to 7,252,
402 bushels as compared with 20,
000,000 bushels the year previous.
However, with the excellent showing
made the first part of January and
the movement of the 1925 crop dur
ing the early spring of 1926 the
year 1926 should show an excellent
record in wheat. Flour shipments the
first three weeks of January 1926
amounted to 20,108 barrels valued at
$146,715. Flour shipments are not
nearly as large as they were in Jan
uary 1925, but show an increase over
the figures for December 1925, and
the later part of this month snay
bring this record to equal or excel
that of January 1925.
The following essay on the cow re
cently appeared in the columns of
the Baltimore Sun:
"The cow is a female quadruped
with an alto voice and a countenance
in which there is no guile. She col
laborates with the pump in the pro
duction of a liquid called milk, pro
vides filler for the hash and at last
is skinned by those she has benefit
ed, as mortals commonly are.
"The young cow is called a calf,
and is used in the manufacture f
chicken salad.
"The cow's tail is mounted aft and
has a universal joint. It is used to
disturb marauding flies and the tas
sel on the end has unique education
al value. Persons who milk cows and
come often in contact with the tassel
have vocabularies of peculiar and
impressive force.
"The cow has two stomachs. The
one on the ground floor is used as a
warehouse and has no other function.
When one is filled the cow retires
to a quiet place where her ill man
ners will occasion no comment and
devotes herself to belching. The raw
material thus conveyed for the sec
ond time to the interior of the face
is pulverized and delivered to the
auxiliary stomach, where it is con
verted into cow.
"The cow has no upper plate. All
her teeth are parked in the lower
part of her face. This arrangement
was perfected by nn efficiency ex
pert to keep her from gumming
things up; as a result she bites up
and gums down.
"The male cow is called a bull
and is lassoed along the Colorado,
fought south of the Rio Grande and
shot in the vicinity of the Potomac.
"A slice of cow is worth eight
cents in the cow, 14 cents in the
hands of the packer, and $2.40 in a
restaurant that specializes in atmos
phere." o
