entries, aggregating more than a thou
sand birds, are cooped in Takoma Hall,
and the cackllngs, duckings, and crow
Ings can"be heard in every part of that
suburb. The entry list this year is
twice as large as it was last year, when
the show was held in Washington.
Ten States and the District of Colum
bia are represented, and every kind of
chicken, from the one-pound exhibition
game bantams to the ponderous Cochins
and Brahmas, Is shown. Ducks, geese,
and Turkeys, to say nothing of 'one of
the greatest exhibitions of pigeons ever
seep in the District, are also exhibited.
Among the Freaks.
In the freak section of the show, the
German Naked Necks lead in Interest.
This bird is grown for neither plumage
nor beauty, and Is one of the ghastliest
looking objects ever seen here. The
Naked Neck has no particular .distinc
tion, except that it has no feathers
from the shoulders up, and has the ap
pearnce of a white-necked turkey buz
zard. Another curiosity Is a capon, which
has adopted a brood of chickens. The
capon not only looks out for the com
fort of its foster-children so far as find
ing food and mothering is concerned,
but actually clucks like a hen. The
chickens seem to be Just as contented
as If they had their own mother look

The Maryland State educational ex

are shown, divided among eighteen
owners. In all there are 123 exhibitors.

Interesting news from Hyattsvllle is
to the effect that Mayor Harry w.
Sheperd and the common cluncil are
planning to enact an ordinance fixing
the maximum speed for automobiles
within the cqrporat'e limits at fifteen
miles an hour. This Is three miles in
excess of the State speed law, but Cor

that if the local authorities had the
authority to deviate from the State law
