Marion County Poultry
Show In Progress
'nponi.ing demonstrations will bo
given at 2 o'clock each afternoon dur
ing the Marion county poultry show by
C. W. Wilcox, who is In charge of the
poultry farm at the Oregon Stnto hos
pital. The colony house, S by 12 feet, phice,)
on tho sidewnlk in front, of the poultry
show is attracting attention anion!!
thoso who nro in the poultry business.
From actual experience at the poultry
farm of tho state hospital, this style of
colony house has been found most prac
ticable. All the birds nt the Oregon stnto hos
pital aro trap nested nnd nre being
taken care of in colony houses similar
to the ono on display.
Two pens of tho Dryden bird, known
as the Oregon breed are being shown
through tho courtesy of Dr. R. E. Leo
Steiner, superintendent of the stnto
hospital. This Oregon breed has been
developed by Prof. Dryden of tho Ore
gon Agricultural college. The records
of these birds aro used by Prof. Dryden
in his extension work in connection
with the O. A. C.
Tho poultry show wns crowded all
day. The work of nwarding prizes wax
going on rapidly, but will not be com
pleted until tomorrow, ns the nwarding
is slow on account of all points being
awarded according to the card system.
With tho largo number attending the
opening day, tho niiinngement feels that
the attendance at tho eighth aiiiiunl
show will exceed by far that of any of
the former shows.
Among exhibits which have been at
tracting considerable attention at tho
Marion county poultry show are thns
of J. O. Watt", of Kngene, showing bar
red Hocks, and those of Mrs, Harvey
Crawford, of Zena, who also has a fino
showing of Barred Hocks. Lester 1'.
Evans, rural route X, is showing soino
