Scandal Among Bird Fanciers at the Poultry Show Re
sulting: From a Unique Trick of One of
A single little brown feather has caused a scandal at the poultry show.
It was found in tho cage occupied by the prize Brown Leghorn cockerel
owned by Exhibitor Gunter of Ogden.
" Only poultry fanciers will understand the importance attached to the
little feather by those taking part in the show. It may be the caac of
4- charges being filed against Mr. Gunter and n contest over the first prize.
The theory of the fanciers is that the prize cockerel had a white feather
In his tail. Jt Js a very serious ofTensc for a Brown Leghorn cock to have
a white feather In his tail or anywhere else, and ,a bird who Is guilty has
a. very slim show for getting a prize at a poultry show that Is, If (he --
judges discover the white feather.
An examination of Mr. Gunter's fowl, after the feather was found,
-f showed that one of his tall feathers had been cut off. Tho evidence fur-
ther Indicated that a feather of the proper color had been fastened into
the original quill by means of a piece of toothpick. , If this was really -
done it was accomplished so cleverly that the Judge. J. Shellcnbarger of
-f Iown, did not detect the Imposition, but awarded the Gunter cockerel the
f first prize In his clas3. .
The second piTze went to Roy Morton. 4-
If the Ogden bird really had a white feather Mr. Morton is entitled
to first prize. Should he file a protest, the matter will be Investigated and
Mr. Gunter may be required to prove that he did not doctor his cockerel.

There have been many banquets in Salt
Lako City, many luncheons and dinners
that are recalled from tlmo to time with
the pleasantest recollections by those who
attended, but tho first annual breakfast
of tho Ladies' Literary club, given yes
terday at tho clubhouse, will from this
time on be referred to by all who wero
fortunalo enough to be there as the most
brilliant event of tho kind ever given in
this city. Tho guests numbered 1C3, in
cluding many of tho brightest women in
tho 6ity. and the feast of wit which suc
ceeded the feast of good things. It Is safe
to say, has never been surpassed at a
similar event In any city.
The clubhouse was most artistically ar
ranged for tho breakfast. White and
green, tho club colors, were carried out
in the decorations, and tho menu, as far
as possible. The menu cards were also
done In the club colors, a beautiful mono
gram in white adorning the palo green
cover. Long tables In the form of a cross
extended corncrwlse of the room, while
smaller tables filled in the space at tho
sides and ends A beautiful shower of
white carnations, plumosa and baby rib
bon fell from the chandelier over the cen

a low mound of white carnations and

After a -very delicious breakfast had
been disposed of Mrs. F. D. B'.ckford, In
happy vein. Introduced the toastmlstreas.
Mrs. J. M. JJart. The latter, always
clever, was at her best yesterday, and her
remarks Introducing the various toast
givers fairly sparkled with wit and
humor. Before Introducing tho first speak
er Mrs Dart asked all tho guests to rlso
and drink lo tho presidents, the present
and tho absent ones, and tho few that
liad passed to the great beyond. This was
done, and then Mi's. F. D. Blckford re
sponded to tho toast, "Our Presidents."
At the conclusion of her toast. Mrs. Blck
ford, In behalf of the club, presontcd
Mrs J. C. Royle, the club's first presi
dent, with a beautiful cluster or American
Beauties, and thanked tho club In gracious
manner for a cluster of white chrysanthe
mums which were presented to Mrs. Blck
fond by tho club, she being the present
president of tho club. Mrs. Royle re
sponded to the second toast, "The Good
Old Days," which was reminiscent of the
days when tho club movement wns now
in this c-lty, and was a very charming
toast. "Tho Woes of the Chairman" was
responded to by Miss Ethel Paul, who. In
a cloverly written fable, presented the
woes of a section chairman of tho Ladles'
Literary club, and so apt wero tho al
lusions that the members could not fall
to see the point, and the toast wns fro
quenllv Interrupted with peals of laugh
ter. Mrs. C. E. Allen's toast was "The
Clubwoman In Politic." her remarks
tending to refute the assertion often mado
that, instead of uplifting polities, women
are themselves degraded by entering Into
it ' The Old Woman and the Nov," Club"
was the subject of nn exceedingly bright
toast bv Mrs. Ferdinand J. Fabian. This
was followed by "Tho Club's Brothcrs-ln-Law,"
given by Mrs. John Cain in her
characteristic vein, in which the husbands
of clubwomen were portrayed In a humor
ous vein, Mrs. Cain's toast closing wllh
an original poem as to what club hus
bands do "Sometimes." "The Club Out
look" was the subject of a thoughtful
toast by Mrs. Neldoiu In which the moro
pcrlous side of club life was referred to
and tho duties of clubwomen to humanity
set forth. Mrs. M. L. Ritchie gavo the
closing toast, "The Autocrat at tho
Breakfast Table." handling the subject In
an altogether original way. Until the
closing sentence the guests at tho break
fast were. Ignorant of just who tho auto
crat was.l Nvnen, Mrs. Ritchie, raising her
EinKS. asked all present to "drink to tho
autocrat at tho breakfast table of every
true American home, tho baby."
A stringed orchestra furnished a very
enjoyable programme of .music while the
breakfast was bolng served, nnd tho
toasts were Interspersed with vocal selec
tions bv Mrs. Martha Royle King and
Miss Nellie Pinkcrton, both of whom gavo
their numbers In cry charming manner.

RATE WAR IN GRAIN I
Topcka. Kan., Jan. 20, Kansas la the 1
storm center for a frclsht rate war in I J
grain, and within the next fortnight it
is likely that the Stnte will bo pretty thor-
oughly drained of the twenty million bush
els of wheat which arc supposed to be ' JJH
still held by the farmers.
The Santa Fc has announced a cut of
5 ccnt3 per 100 in the rate on grain from
interior Kansas points to Galveston by '
the direct route. This means that th h mmW
grain will not be sent around bv way of mmW
Kansan City, but will move direct Iron '
Vsawyor lhc G C. & S. F. to the Gulf, I
po t. It Is exjioeicd that the other roads mmW
will meet the Santa Fo's cut for Gulf mmm
business, and tho probability la that tho -Mmm
Las torn roads, which depend for their
business on the haul to Minneapolis, Chi
cago or Eastern ports, will mak a cut
In the rates to turn somo of the business ' mmm
In that direction Instead of allowing it to . mW
all slip away by the "back door" of the Mmm
In addition to tho cut. made by the Santa mm
Jo. tho Rock Island and Missouri Pacific mwl
havo given notice of a rductlon of 3 mwi
cents In the rates to tho Gulf via Kansas '
The rate war affects tho grain district mmm
extending from the Dakotas to Oklahoma,
out th reduction of C cents from Ints-Ior mwA
points doos not extend farther south than
tno Kansas Stato lino on the scith. Mmm
It Is thought that the lines Intorestjd. , Mmm
will got together within two weeks anrl 'mmm
adjust tho rate situation.
