OREGON, THE BANNER PHEAS
What was wrong with tbe methods
of those state that made a fizzle out
i of pheasant farming?
Oregon RUre shows they were wrong
when her single pheasant farm In Bea
ton county raised 5.000 handsome,
hardy pheasants last season.
The S"0 pheasant bens Inclosed there
laid like Leghorns, shelling out sixty
to eighty eggs apiece for the hatctrng
season, mid after the laying stunt were
turned loose, their winds pinioned, to
roaiu the preserve at pleasure.
Pheasants seldom hatch when cn
j ned. so these eggs were given to chick
ens to hatch, and when the little bird
j enme out they were not mollycoddled
at all. luit raised about the siitne us

need no shelter except the trees, weeds
and brush, where they harbor summer
The majority of these u.OOO birds
will be released all over the state,
wherever they are guaranteed protec
tion and care, and will breed in the
wild next season, while at tbe farm
sufficient breeders will be retained to
raise thousands more, and thus Ore
gon will ere long become a pheasant
Some states failed with pheasants
because they selected a variety nnsult
ed to their climate, did not feed them
correctly or turned them loose to pick
up their own food In a region where
there wus none.
These should go to Oregon and get
the know bow. Likewise those states
that are busy batching bullfrog fry
should drop tbe tadpole business and
go to Oregon and learn to do some
thing worth while.

A well known eastern poultryman
in a recent address before the Con

mended the use of plain tallow as far
superior to coal oil as a material for

that one treatment a year would be
effective, as the tallow does not evap

The turkey Is said to v the only do

The fowl was discovered by Pedro

the following year was taken to Spain.
Turkeys were raised In large numbers
by the Aztecs and other people of Mex

The farmers in (Iriint county. Wis.,

beneath the surface soil make tho un
dertaking a relatively simple one.
It is not generally known that, when
properly cooked, tho, sugar beet makes
a palatable article of fosl for the ta
ble. It contains from l." to 17 por
cent of sugar, while the common red
garden beet contains but from 10 to 12
per cent of sugar. Some one who has
tried them suggest the following
methods for cooking: Wash tho beets,
but do not remove tho skin, leaving
a portion of the top on so as to retain
the juices. Cook in boiling water un
til tender: then peel and quarter or
cut into slices. Make u slice of melt
ed butler, pepper anil salt, pour over
beets and serve hot.
In a certain county In Kansas they
have beeu Improving some of the
main roads, aud a farmer who uses
one of these Improved highways la
hauling his prisluce to market has
figured out that he saves enough In
one day's hauling to pay his share of
the Increased road lax. Before the
road was Improved he used to haol
one load of fifty bushels of grain a
day. Since the road has been Im
proved ho has been able to haul twe
loads of seventy-five bushels each.
This would seem to be a simple yet
forceful object lesson, showing the
value of better country highways.
It Is safe to assume that potato
growers of the country will very gen
erally supisirt the action of the fed
eral horticultural board In placing on
embargo on potatoes from Canada nnd
those F.uropenn countries where the
black wart und powdery scab have at
tacked tho potato crop. There would
be small advuntage coming to the con
sumer if, to relieve somewhat tb
high prices for potatoes prevailing for
the present winter, diseased foreign
tubers were admitted only In tbe end
to contaminate American fields and re
strict In a Urge measure tbe outpot of
marketable potatoes, resulting In ft
permanent advance In prices.

A Little Girl's Composition.
Thrr wn once n little girl eho
wished to write a composition. At
least she didn't wish to. but she could
Uot help IL '.M-cailse her teacher said
a composition whs to le written. The
little girl got out all her pencils and
sharpened tlieiu carefully anil ruled
neat margins down t lie side of her w
pr; end then gave a great deep sign
kcd out of the window.
"I don't know what It HM elsiuL"
I she said. Just as you and ewli other
, child has said a hundivv! ttines. And
her mother snld "Write about what
yon see "
"I so-- .lie .urn tree, salil ta
tie girl, ''-.ii I can't write much about
that Well, perhaps I can start with It "
So she looked hard at the willow
tree and wrote a line about how she
loved It U-caiixe she bad always climb
ed In It ever since tho beginning of
time. And she wrote another line or
two about how bright ttie leave look
ed where Jlie sun loin bed t hem II nil
how gray tbe lisiked in the shadow.
hiiiI rbeii she told bow the wind Mindit
t Iii-iii swsv like mug fringe. And she
! told about how dark the trunk was
' bin k of the leaves, mid how It bumped
mil curiously in places where straight
willow stalks shot up, and about the
grasses that grew around the fisit.
And she was Just finishing a iliserip
tlon of how It looked In the rain
when her mother, who had gone out.
came back and asked, how the compo
sition was getting on
"Why. It Is all done." said the little
girl "And I don't think I'll ever b
afraid of eomiosltons any more Next
time I'll write about the apple tree."
The Blue Grotto.
The Blue grotto Is a ruinous cave
on the Island of Capri, near Naples.
It is alsiut 170 feet long, 100 wide and
40 high, and Is reached from the sea
by a narrow arch in the limestone
t-lt rf. The water within resembles, ac
cording to one eyewitness, "liquid sap
phire" aud glitters with a 'il blue
Walls and roof of tbe Blue grotto
are ultramarine in color.
The general blue tone of the place Is
said to be caused by the relied Ion of
the sun's rays In passing through tho
water in the cave.
