The Industry iu Oregon lias not reached the irnt where the Belgian are raisd for the table, the specimen thus far Installed .in the Oregon ral bitrie lieing- too expensive - for table u', having been purchased for propa- Kalins purposes, with a vie vr of secur ing . only animal 'having the liest points, grading up well 'w ith the ehoic--est to te found buy where In the conn try.

In some quan era it Is believed that I lie Pelgiaus will take the place of the hen, and that rabbit ries will .displace the chicken yai;il. While the Itelgiaus will soon ! foiuid an everyday table delicacy, ant wild In-come an article of consumption, there is little danger of litem taking the; place of jioultry al together, and there Is little 'doubt but the liaro and the le ti will exist side by side, and together help in feeding the multitudes, L.

Mr. Martin writes: , "While there Is not one out of one hundred person who Is raising oid try that everl heard ; if the ltelglan hare, yet the day is not far in the fu ture when th hare' will be more, ex tensively raided than wultry. and iu 'many places the poultry yards will be transferted into rabbluies; not lie cause jioultryfnUsing is unprofitable, .lmt Uf-niw there is more nnaiey in raisiilif h.'iris .iliil mt half the v' k or expense. '-Statist ie show that there Is more poultry or the product of poul try consumed in the United States than there is jrrain. and no doubt tlie bare Mill Is raised far more extenstve Iv. for .lt not ionly takes tlie place of the fowl, but also Meef and pork. There are today in tlie city of Io Au ,jrcles alone over tive thousand breed ers of llelghm bait's, ami In the city of Paris there am consumed over one I Hind red and !. ninety thousand iiounds of bares daily, and iu several of. the old countries! the hare furnishes the larger art of their meat supply; Itut now we will; return to our sobjeet which is the j most proli table, the hen or the hare? ! ' "The hen will not lay over S'C eggs and raise three - dor.en chickens in a year' at IlioU-st. the value of which Avoidd lie. eirts J.1.r. chickens $15.

Although lias the we cuuttot tniiA any thing for eggs, tliwoji will le enough of the yongsters nave young to swell the muulier to one hundred intend of forty. . "This Is aSvcry lew estimate or the 1 wire, but it looks like the old hen Is lidly left, for it takes just as mm-h feed to keep the hen as it. -docs the haw. for t Ik? hen must have grain, while the h:re can thrive on hay in a land!ox. wtilie M takes all outdoors and -sometime indoor for the hen. . it Th bare is mucli easier careo ior nmu tiie hen. aiwl the youngsters are no trouble at all- All they do Is grow.
